I have upgraded to the new firmware for Z2. All is great except for the enlarged icons in the UI.Too big. The added camera modes make the phone heat so badly. Stay away from them for a longer battery life. The biggest pro is the addition of Ultra stamina mode. That mode can last for long, bt once on that mode you enjoy very few features of the smart phone.
Sony, give an option for the large or small ui and create a short cut for Ultra stamina mode, just like for stamina mode.
Overall, the upgrade is fine, no issues detected......yet.
After update save all your contacts to sd card. Move your data from phone memory to sd card. Then go to settings & set to backup and factory reset. Then the phone will restart automatically
This company show off. But service is very bad n irregular. I buy Sony Xperia (09/10/14)n insert SIM in tray n don't Open tray . It's block tray. I serve Dats problems seens in Sony Xperia Phones( Customer care also tell me).

ArunSan, 12 Nov 2014ok thank u.. but wt abt black one? is tat was not tat much grt as white???? Black is quite common and is a finger print magnet, while they're not easily visible on the White one.
Hi guys,so I've just updated my phone to the latest firmware and all I can say is that my phone actually feels less leggy except for the camera.The camera has become a pain to use.The battery is fine.I can't see any noticeable improvements.The slight update to the ui is fantastic,minus the large icons.The borrowed features from the z3 is good like the Ultra stamina mode and the smart rotate feature.Unfortunately,I did notice that the phone tends to heat up faster than before.But nevertheless, I give the latest update a thumbs up.

Try to install 360 antivirus and after that install again your subway surfer game and finally you can detect this game is deffective by virus.
