To increase the headphones volume just download the app 'earpiece' and select 'audio through earpiece'. It works without rooting..
increase in Camera quality for Z1 after lollipop
Update is not available for all z1 devices. Depends on the region. Have to wait.
Done update here in the philippines, download may take up to 2 hrs depending on your internet connection, some may experience mtp driver connection problem, but that's not sony's fault.. hands on experience is quite good, no lags, very beautiful ui and no problem on installed apps, battery drainage will be fast if stamina mode is not turned on..
the best part? " Move application to sd card" and that's a good thing :)
Downside: Should back up or else all the games/files/etc installed in the internal memory will be gone even if you backed up via pc companion or back up and restore application, later upon restoration error will prompt and said that it is not compatible. better yet find other ways.
When lolipop is available in bangladesh? Eagerly waiting for this in my z1
I like my Z1 forever and ever....lollipop update for Z1 give my phone more smooth,beautiful camera and wifi become more faster...
Updated to Lollipop:
Battery draining very fast.Camera lags too much
My charging takes nearly 4hrs from 20-100%.Must fix these all in Lollipop 5.1 update
I have updated My Z1 to Android-5 three days ago and things being smooth with no system or battery problems in fact the icons are bigger and the screen is clearer which partially solved the vivid colors problem, but is much more better after the upgrade to do a factory resets and do apps updates to get the full benefits .
even though this phone is great but i still like the AMOLED screens in samsung mobiles
I'm reading that a lot of people have battery draining problems which is weird for me since i noticed a big improvement in this area, either your phones are faulty or you installed some apps that drain the battery without you knowing and even in the background. The battery lasts me now longer than it lasted when i first got the phone... I'm extremelly pleased and excited with the update and as i said earlier don't let the camera lag fool you just check the time it takes to snap a picture, i believe they did this to have more resources available to snap the picture faster. Just a thought.
I just got the 5.0.2 update and i swear it's like it's a different phone so smooth now, not that it wasn't before but it's faster and the UI looks so much better i love the new notification system, the pull down bar, it even captures pictures faster, and the screen recording while also recording yourself with the front camera is awesome. And i swear i unplugged my phone this morning it was fully charged, i had my screen on for 3 hours and 27 minutes, data mobile active all day and i still have 53% left which i believe it's amazing, It now shows you based on the consume how much the battery will last, how long it will take to charge. I just love the update it's like a new phone. I will definetly buy another sony made phone again. Only negative thing about the phone is the screen which could've had deeper black levels and better viewing angles, leaving this aside i recomend the phone to anyone, excellent performance, camera, design. This update is amazing the way the phone switches through apps is amazing, it was already fast now it also feels well optimized and i'm feeling a great improvement on the battery life, even the keyboard is better, smooth. I'm so excited that i can't wait to get another xperia when the time will come. I'm more excited than i was when i got my galaxy s2, only thing i miss about samsung is the super amoled screen. The camera seems to have a small lag while moving it but don't let it fool you when you take a picture it actually snaps them faster.
Its a owesome phone!! but i m having heating issue currently, even after few min of gaming or camera it starts to heat up quickly. What to do!??
Lollipop update in the philippines has been roll out..but hesitant to update.. any feedback pls? thanks..

Battery draining too fast...and charging slow...heating issue is also there...phone is heating too much...camera lags...and in the task bar sometimes the cross button appears on the app window at upper right corner and sometimes its not....those who are using krtat dont update till the fully fixed update rollout....
Its a lovely phone after the Lollipop update.. Great UI, Great Camera, Great Walkman. And the GREATEST is u can transfer your apps to SD Card already.
