Just received the notification for the 14.4.A.0.108 / 4.4.4 update (India). While the Kitkat 4.4.2 update bettered a few things,like battery life, camera, voice quality, etc. I really hope 4.4.4 fixes the occasional freeze/restart issue.
If KitKat 4.4.4 is not available OTA, use the Sony update program to install the new KitKat for your phone. Connect your phone with the UBS cable to a Windows PC. The drivers will automatically install. Eventually you will be prompted to install Sony PC Companion. Use Sony Companion to upgrade your phone to 4.4.4.

AnonD-279350, 02 Jul 2014So you mean that the sony z1 will be available to update to 4.4? Yes it is possible, Sony rolled out the Kitkat 4.4.4 update in June and I have already received my update OTA.
Got my 4.4.4 Kitkat update today....not much to write home about, will look at battery performance after full charge. Since I got it, 2 months now, it has 'frozen' twice. I hope the update will fix that from recurring.

Sony Cheat Brand, Worst Service ever anybody can have. I believe Japanese Never had this culture.
After buying Sony handset (Xperia Z1), really feeling being cheated by Sony
Problems in phone, just within 2 months:
•Vibrator not working properly
•Camera not working (showing error – Camera not available)
•Audio jack sometimes work & sometimes don’t
Problem with co. policies / call center / service center:
- Nobody from Sony likes to revert to that mails of customers. I have been chasing service head at "email@example.com", however haven't got any revert
- When I bought phone, It was told that like Apple, Sony will also replace the set if any problem would be there. Now it has been told by service center that co has changed it’s policy & now will repair it.
- When I deposited my phone it had cover & it’s been told that cover is one time usable so I have to buy fresh cover. Is this a fault of a customer? .
- Nobody picks up the phone at service center, so if someone wants to know the status of handset, he has to depend upon call center.
Would suggest to everyone that it's better to go for some cheap brand rather than cheat brand like Sony.
i use sony xperia v.i like all sony product especially the best camera
I've been used most of the high end SmartPhone nowadays... from Xperia P, to Iphone 4, to Iphone 4S, to SGS4 (Black 3G model), to Xperia ZL, to SG Note 3, to Iphone 5C, to Iphone 5S, to SGS5,Nokia Lumia 1320,going back again to SGS4 (Brown $G LTE), to Xperia Z Ultra, and lastly now Xperia Z1. From those different Brand of different Smartphones, in my opinion due of my experience from using them before up to my current smartphone. I've noticed that Sony brand is still the best from all of them. From the design it self from different models of SONY, different colors, styles, unique features which is true and useful from each models. UI, Software & RAM doesn't feel LAG (sometimes it is normal to experience small lag or hang due of Interet connection or over use of your smartphone). Sufficient Camera Experienced , all SONY built apps was high quality from music into movies and mostly your money is totally worth it to buy the SONY brand smartphone...
Can Sony Xperia Z1 submerge in "SEA or Salt water"?..i have a Xperia Z1 but i did not try to submerge it yet at Sea water..working condition of Z1 is great...thanks
I purchased it last Sunday. I never use Sony product except once. I used Xperia Neo V. Sony makes premium phone always, I love their design. Last Thursday i lost my Galaxy S4 GTI-9500 by a thief. I'm from Dhaka, Bangladesh. Before i purchased Z1 i read many comments. Maximum people told about heating problem & battery problem. But after my purchase i still didn't face any heat & battery problem. I used it more than 1.5 hrs continuously but no heat i faced. My battery also last more than a day & next day half after using wifi...but stamina mode was on. My S4 battery back up also good. One thing i want to share with u guys that Z1 camera poor than the S4 camera. S4 camera photo was crystal clear but Z1 photo have some noise in indoor photo. I dont know why. I thought Z1 camera is more powerful than S4 but i disappointed & Headset sound also too low when i'm on the road in Bus outside noise is clearly coming. The headset sound is good but too low. When i use my S4 headset in Z1 its like rocking like Noise Isolation sound. I'm happy for that i have a S4 headset. Galaxy S4 headset sound is more powerful than Sony headset. I just found 2 drawback of Z1 that is Camera & Headset. Otherwise its batter than Galaxy S4.
Can you please tell if it will be possible after update 4.4.2 update to 4.4.3 or 4.4?
