Eric, 10 May 2014Should i update my z1 with kitkat please reply with reason thnxxxxDon't go for KK as it contains many bugs that Google is trying to fix and soon we will get a stable os. Stick to Jb for now as the stable update will released will let you know. I'm wondering to downgrade to JB but I did not get the firmware backup before upgrading. So will suggest you to take a backup of your current firmware as if you are not satisfied with KK than you would be having option for downgrading.
karan, 09 May 2014Sony has just started rolling out a new Android 4.4.2 KitKat update with build number 14.3.A.0... moreTo Karan -
Bhai its a minor update.
It will not fix all problems.
I hope the battery drain and camera noise level and quality should be fixed as soon as possible.
M having xperia z1.
Updated it as soon as d update was released.
Now m regretting.
Camera quality becomes more disappointing.
Extremely high noise level.
ISO settings dont help much.
Camera quality is best on android 4.3
And main problem is battery life.
It drains way too quickly.
You can not modify sd card contents on kitkat. So m stuck wd d fact dat i have to use a laptop everytime i want to delete something from my sd card.
On the positive side.. The UI is now more gorgeous. Thats it.
Im using z1 since 3 month other function are strong but i feel aum time the touch brings un respond.the battery heating problem.
Sony has just started rolling out a new Android 4.4.2 KitKat update with build number 14.3.A.0.761 to Xperia Z1, starting with China. Soon we will receive this update in India.:)
This patch will fix the issues we are facing in xperia z1 like reboot,camera lack,battery draining.
i was used sony for 3year but z1is my life this us awesome camera and great looking but i sell this phone for tha money problem but i want to buy again this phine
Guys, does anyone know what is the "TTY" mode in the call settings screen !! ?
kitkat certification in xperia... nice move sony!!
Z1 is the best phone but his sound quality is not better and one more thing his camera results when zoom the pictures the photos clear not looking
I am using z1 for nearly about 4 months it's a good phone overall but it lags behind in 3 -4 segments first the quality of the speakers is really bad it have very puny speakers 2nd it pauses mobile data when screen is locked as a result all the downloads and msgs are paused! The looks of the phone is really awesome and it's really fast the screen quality is also very good the most sadest part of the phone is the camera despite of 20 m.p the image quality really sucks!
The Z1 is an amazing phone but full of serious flaws the most prominent being the self cracking screen, it is the most fragile phone I have ever owned, after having it for 6 days the screen cracked whilst in my pocket and sony are charging me approx $300 aud to have it repaired although it is a known fault which also voids the water proofing. The software updated from jelly bean to kitt kat also has numerious negative effects which I admittedly never did because of other reviews on the software. I was a loyal sony consumer (having 3 sony phones previously) untill this one, I will not be buying another sony after this one
FADY, 06 May 2014Hi All, Please i need your advise. if i added all installed applications to the STAMINA mod... moreIt doesn't do anything but pauses the receiving of mobile data when the screen is off. It saves a lot of battery life and won't negatively have an impact on apps unless you like receiving bbm msgs as they come in.
AnonD-260893, 06 May 2014Should i buy z1 or z1 compact? Both phones seems great but i want phone that have good gaming ... moreGo for Z1. Z1 will full fill all of your requirement.Compact also full fill your all expectation except gaming as display is small. Average size of display for gaming should be 5 inch. Z1 has 5 inch display.
FADY, 06 May 2014Hi All, Please i need your advise. if i added all installed applications to the STAMINA mod... moreIt will affect the applications, since you're telling the phone that while in Stamina Mode your applications will not be working until you turn on the screen.
Please i need your advise. if i added all installed applications to the STAMINA mode plus all systems files will that be better for saving battery or it will negatively affect the phone performance ???
thanks in advance,
AnonD-260893, 06 May 2014Should i buy z1 or z1 compact? Both phones seems great but i want phone that have good gaming ... moreI'm going for the Z1 Compact, you should too. It's awesome, the viewing angles on the Z1 are bad but Sony has given the Compact an IPS panel so viewing angles are sorted. Battery will also last longer on Z1 Compact as its not full HD like the Z1 and it has a smaller screen but same proccessor as the Z1 so the Compact will be faster than the Z1 and the battery will last longer. Those who are moaning about battery life on the Z1 you are telling lies, the phone has Stamina mode which saves a whole 40+% of battery life. Samsung n Lg have their own problems.
