Hey Guys, updated My Xperia Z to kit kat last night, 4.4.2 and below are my reviews,
( Note : Please format the phone once after the update to remove all the lags in the UI )
- Amazing lock screen
- Lot more new options available in setting
- I have heard about improved battery life, not tested myself though
- Better battery icon
- And there would be obvious internal service improvements
-Laggy setting page
It can be fixed by enabling "Forced GPU rendering" but that would take a toll on phone battery. Not much though, but still.
-Lag in opening application
Click on messaging for example and see the lag. Its clearly noticeable. Even when i press return from the messaging app, there's a clear lag again
-Bad camera pictures in low light and in flash
This was there before too and still persist. The camera is great outdoor during day, but in low light and on flash, it takes sad photos. I clicked a pic with an Samsung S4 in the exact low light condition and difference was by far. I can share those pics too if required.
Overall i am not satisfied with the update. I feel the phone performance has marginally decreased. Though most of it can be made up by using the options in developers tool but the very need of that indicates that the phone performance has reduced.
This is good config phone. I can see my friend running 4.4.4 on Moto G and it runs smooth, i expected it muuch better on Xperia Z. Though i like Sony phones, not that satisfied with this update :(
i like real japan's product please don't write on phone made in china.i really hate china product i would like to use original sony xperia made by japan.i don't like made in china.
my friend used his sony xperia and never complained about anything or any update, he just upgraded to the z2 and said he will never use any other celphone except for sony xperia.
so far so good, since i got update the kitkat OS alot of improvements into my xz..thanks for the services and hoping more...by now,i'm waiting for new update of latest android L OS...
XPERIA Z C6603 MODE (India)
updated my phone to kitkat last night..
Lots of error at first.
Factory reset was enough to solve the problem...
Improved battery performance and smoother touch...
Avez kasmani, 08 Jul 2014Wow.. I got kitkat update in India.. 10.5.A.0.230.. but i don't want to update because of all ... moreGo ahead and update bro.. I'm from Bangalore..I updated last night...its awesome..no lags nothing...thanks to new version of GOOGLE PLAY SERVICES 5.0 which finishes all bugs...Update it ..U'll love it...later come back and thank me ..:)
Though I'm not a literal lover of sony but yes I would like to point out to those , who says sony camera clarity is not good.. Guys wake up..!!! Sony Clarity is as good as a real scene, infact its better than the real, specially outdoors if u shoot out , the clarity is as good as DSLR Cameras. If u don't still trust me, pass me ur email address to my mail and I ll send u the pics I took with it and then say if sony camera is bad or not .
Hey Guys, Just last night updated my phone to 4.4 ....Trust me no bug, no battery drain, no hang , nothing....!!! Its amazing after update..
Just in case u have a little bit of laginess, after updating just reset it to the factory settings once, and ur problem would be solved.
I own C6602 ( Bangalore )
As people are saying about battery drain and laginess that was because of the particular GOOGLE PLAY SERVICES 4.0 something...Now its been updated to 5.0.
So there is no problem as such...
Sony was waiting for GOOGLE PLAY SERVICES 5.0 to release and fix the bugs and then immediately they released kitkat for us..
I Hope my info was quite convincing to people who are in doubt as to update or not..! Guys U CAN UPDATE IT WITHOUT SECOND THOUGHT!@!
dr mohsmed 82, 09 Jul 2014Yes man it seems that Egypt in a diff planetthe update system still not arriving arab region not just egypt.. but noe more near to egypt as this update arrived asians few days ago read previous resposes to this from the asians
Finally updated mine to 4.4.2 and I can't believe it doesn't have the usual kitkat bugs. instead of battery drain, my battery lasts longer now.around 10-15% longer.not a lot but that's still an improvement. The new interface is great and everything else functions properly much like it did on 4.3. no overheating issues as well.the only glitch I noticed is the lag when scrolling in Settings. other than that everything is great. I'm from the Philippines by the way.
When u updated ur Z to 4.4.2 u feel it goes slowly. It has solution to make it fast again
Pay attention plz
Go to setting
Go and tap on the build number 7 or 8 times
Then get back and u see u have developer option in setting
Open that and make these 3 from 1x to 0.5x
1_ Window animation...
After u made them to 0.5x tap on force gpu rending And force 4xmssa...
Then go back and quit the setting
After that ull see ur phone works as fast as before
