confused..., 16 Jan 2014Hmmm should I purchase the Samsung Galaxy Note II or the Sony Xperia Z ? I've heard that Sony ... moreGet the xperia Z instead of note 2. It's better looking and colors are more natural unlike samsung phones that are overly saturated. It hurts the eyes. And performance wise, it's better than note 2 now after its updated to 4.3. Antutu benchmark of note 2 is only 20800 while xperia z goes up to 22000. Not to mention xperia z' s premium feel with its glass covered back and front panels. Btw,Note 2 is plastic. Now make a choice.
confused..., 16 Jan 2014Hmmm should I purchase the Samsung Galaxy Note II or the Sony Xperia Z ? I've heard that Sony ... moreActually I would go for Note 2 ... been using it for 8 months now ... I haven't experienced any problems with my note 2 ... as for xperia z I would say it also has its privileges and well ... note 2 is more of a day to day use device compared to the xperia z as it seems like a Scientific experimental device that was about to be sent to the moon but was later on aborted .... well you'll get the picture ... anyways in terms of performance for gaming wise and durability I would say xperia z is far more superior but be warned that the adreno330 in the xperia z may be a tad more weaker than the mali400mp in the note 2 at times ... this is a hard choice to consider that both of the devices were former flagships of their own kind ... anyway in my opinion I would go for the note 2 but if you're in for durability and performance I would say get the xperia z ...

I downloaded 4.2 .67 update from this link, and it's Generic UK version and works perfect cuz I live in Australia: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B7bgi8l2bTaONDV3bkxCTlNyVXc/edit
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS DOWNLOAD THAT TFT FILE, PREPARE YOUR PHONE FOR FLASHING(FOLLOW THE STEPS), FLASH THE PHONE AFTER THAT YOU NEED TO ROOT FOLLOW THOSE STEPS AND YOU'LL HAVE THE LATEST UPDATE OF ANDROID 4.2 VERSION FOR XPERIA Z C6603.
NOTE: THIS METHOD IS JUST FOR C6003 AND THIS IS FLASHING TO PREVIOUS FIRMWARE NOT THE CURRENT ONE THAT IS 4.3, CUZ LATEST FW WAS NOT GOOD AND THAT'S WHY I DECIDED TO FLASH TO 4.2
Sorry for my bad English, I'm still new in AU :)
Good Luck! :)
Problem with updating to Android 4.3. Hope i can get some expertise here.
My phone gave the message New system update is available for the phone 10.4.B.0.569. When I tried to update using phone it said installation failed. Then I tried using PC companion. Then it gave a message saying The phone contains a modified software that can't update. Phone is currently running on Android 4.2.2 (Build number 10.3.1A.2.67) Why this kind of a message pops up? I tried using sony update servises as well. Still the same message pops up. (The phone contains a modified software that can't update) Pls if some one could help me out...
when will be 4.3 available here in Qatar? i hope update for the said O.S will be so soon

If you were then you would not have to ask anyone for help but find the solution on your own.
Can i ask, What do you expect to gain from rooting, are you sure you have an actual need for it?

confused..., 16 Jan 2014Hmmm should I purchase the Samsung Galaxy Note II or the Sony Xperia Z ? I've heard that Sony ... moreNote 2 is big and dumb, full of bloatware and semi-defective "features", and tre display is too pixellated and has a strong blue tinbt when viewed from an angle, very annoying when reading on bright backgrounds. I had one, not for long though, after a few months i was getting sick of the excess uselessness in Touchwiz.
Xperia Z i never got tired of, battery life with display on is not quite as good as Note 2 but the display is amazing and the size, weigh and handling is very comfortable. I had already decided to upgrade to Z1 last year and was waiting for it to launch but when it came out i realized that Z was still the better phone. Even today if i had to choose between Z and Z1 i would take the Z even if it cost the same, but now i think i am ready for Z1 Compact.
I just downgraded to 4.4 android .67 and rooted my device. All I can say is that my device is awesome again!
Black settings theme,
great battery management(better than 4.3)
greenify app installed........
I know that everyone is excited with 4.3 and some still wait for 4.3, but my opinion is that 4.3 is shit update that eats battery just to make the UI so smooth. I couldn't see any improvements...
Now I'm enjoying 4.2 update
4.3 update is great it really makes you feel like your phone is new again. When is Kit Kat 4.4 coming?
still no 4.3 update here in Egypt as well .. for all those who updated what's the main advantages over the 4.2 ?? and if there's any disadvantages ..
