Hema, 02 Apr 2014Is it better to downgrade to 4.1. I am also facing all problems which you noticed. please sugg... moreI don't think you can downgrade to 4.1 without rooting your phone. so i would not advise you to downgrade, what i can advise though is to wait patiently for the new firmware update , sony said it will fix a lot of bug on the 4.3 update.

In earlier version the phone never used to lag. Its a very good phone. Hope sony realises this and solves this problem asap.
Anonymous, 01 Apr 2014Thankx a lot for your time ....GOD BLESS you dear you helped me a lot while taking the decis... moremy final verdict on this phone is .. overall it is a very good phone,fast and responsive can play heavy games easily browser speed is fast and you won't regret buying it ONLY AND ONLY IF YOU STAY WITH THE STOCK 4.1 ANDROID VERSION. after i update it to 4.3 that is the only time that i experience some problems. so i will be discussing to you the pros and cons of 4.3 update instead.
some problems i noticed after the update are as follows [ please take note i only had this problem after updating to 4.3 i never experience this on 4.1 ]
1.) slowness, phone lags a lot [ for example when i open the camera app or google chrome or messages or games, it will take 2-5 seconds before it open, at worst it may take more seconds for it to open ] this never happened on my wife's xperia L when i open something it instantly pops up.
2.) illumination light when playing music thru walkman doesn't illuminate properly when your volume is more than 50%
3.) the phone becomes unresponsive more often, meaning when it lags the screen will turn off and when you try to unlock it, it won't unlock i need to force restart it by pressing the small pinhole at the back of the phone to restart it
those are the only problem i'm experiencing, well the 4.3 update has it's pros too.
1.) new camera features, camera became better
2.) wifi range issue is fixed, before it is having problem detecting wifi specially when you are far from the router but now it is fixed
3.) phone had more features like daydream mode, more themes for customization, more games from google play store
4.) ram increases a bit
feel free to ask if you have more questions.
RAGNAROCK, 02 Apr 2014All those who are complaining about phone problems after 4.3 upgrade request you to take phone... morei think what you mean is doing a software repair thru pc companion, i have tried this but it didn't help. still the same, well if you didn't experience any problem then you may have belong to the lucky few who experience no problem after the update congratulations for that. or maybe you haven't installed many apps on your phone, if you do not install many apps or HD games on the phone then it is just normal that it will not lag because you do not have heavy games or apps that will use the phone's resources.
after upgrade to 4.3 jellt bean i had never face any problems no lag and handset smoothly so you can buy this phone without thinking alot. :)
All those who are complaining about phone problems after 4.3 upgrade request you to take phone backup. After backup do a phone restore using pc companion. This will solve your phone problems. My phone is running butter smooth, cant understand why are you guys complaining.
There is no single problem after updating 4.3. Phone runs smoothly like butter. I cant understand why people are complaining...
i am also sucked the upgradation of4.3 ,the sp hang so much for a long time ,it's lagging when i on camera ,and i noticed many times the ram usages almost full (750-820mb). any one can tell me what i have to do.
will there any problem for this phone's battery in future??especially after 2 or 3 years..i am asking this bcoz it is a non-removable battery ..and also i want to know the latest approx. price for this phone in dubai..
