It didn't work for me using the PC, but yesterday I received a message saying it's available on air. I downloaded the update using the wifi directly to my phone, installed it and it's working! Try the OA-update option on your phone and it'll work.
After 4.4.4 if ringtone sounds good and only notification sound degrades than its not xLoud's fault. Coz xLoud enhances both ringtone n notification sound.. I think its a bug n Sony should fix it soon..
Anonymous, 06 Nov 2014Hey ya'll? This sony xperia Z2 is my first sony after a number of Samsungs and I'm more than h... moreWhatsApp doesn't work when you've got stamina modus on. Go to settings, search for your stamina modus in power management and you can put WhatsApp on the apps active in standby list. Best phone I ever had. long battery life, easy user interface, compared to Samsung. In short, great phone.
I tried to update my phone from 4.4.2 to 4.4.4, but it says everything is up to date. I tried both the software update from Settings and the Sony PC Companion. I am in the UK and I bought the phone here. Any idea why I can't update it? Thank you.
I have updated to 4.4.4....now it is similar to z3....wifi issue and heating issue has gone....but i am facing battery backup issue....it is not good as in 4.4.2...and also the large icon is not good....
My Partner has a Sony Xperia Z2 which he purchased from CEX used this week.
I have set it up as best as I can.
I can set a main ringtone for all calls but when I try to set a ringtone for a contact it only plays the main ringtone.
Am I doing something wrong?
My partners phone is Vodafone Branded and I was wondering if Vodafone have messed with the phone so that it wont set properly.
I have not updated the phone to Android 4.4.4 due to people saying that XLoud option has gone from the phone and is also supposed to be affecting text tone volume negatively.
All advice most appreciated.
[deleted post]Xperia M2 has inferior hardware; SP's hardware is much better, besides it is quite some bit cheaper. However SP has only up to Android 4.3, but you can flash a 4.4.4 kitkat ROM on it in order to make it even faster and better.
Updates on 4.4.4;
DON'T update your device to 4.4.4 if you:
- don't want the extremely big icons known from the Xperia Z3 series
- don't want lower notification sound alerts (from 3rd party apps) as sony apparently felt obligated to completely remove the Xloud software enhancement in this software version. I can't get my head around this as low sound alerts have been an issue from the beginning of the Z2 and Sony had adressed this. With 4.4.4 you're back from where you started.
yuukun, 06 Nov 2014bro seriously ? go check properly superior and manual mode c the camera are laggy than before ... moreYuukun you are absolutely right. I take back my previous comment about the camera as it is a complete nightmare when I had to use it for proper photos yesterday!
Sony delivers good camera hardware, but completely fails with the software part. The whole camera app is very inconsistent, somewhat laggy, and first but foremost Sony has terrible camera algorithm software processing: photos simply don't look fine compared to a S5 or G3.
I really hope Lollipop delivers a better camera performance but I highly doubt it.
I think it's quite pathetic and somewhat ironic seeing sony advertising their phones namely based on features like the camera, video and waterproofing, yet all their devices happen to fail at those three areas miserably.
Amir Ali, 06 Nov 2014I watched reviews for Z3 and the big icons appear in the device tooYes true, that's because this 4.4.4. update is based upon the Z3 series software, which introduced us to the bigger icons. But it is in fact quite a matter of taste, I don't like them.
Nathan95, 06 Nov 2014Hi Renns, where's the xloud option after 4.4.4 update, as I can't find it anywhere, I remember... moreThis turns out te be quite a stupid and not-worthy upgrade. The XLOUD option you can't find is due to the fact that Sony completely removed the option! As a result my Whatsapp sound alerts for example are much lower. Pathetic.
krish, 06 Nov 2014Yeah..I got Xperia Z2!! luv using this...but I doubt about its battery backup...once its been ... moreBattery goes quickly down from 99% to 96% because batteries are not meant to be fully charged as it can damage the battery due to high voltage when it reaches 100%/99% and it keeps charging after that. So I think the quick batterydrop at that point is normal. Ofcourse it should loose 3% every following 10 minutes..
Mpakalambale, 06 Nov 2014Hi Guys, fellow users of Z2, advice me how to avoid my phone to hang up. When it hangs nothing... morewith 'removing the chip' you mean the Sim card, I assume? Try doing a software reset, if that won't help try plugging it into your PC and do a software recovery or update it to 4.4.4. via Sony PC companion.
IF that won't help either and the phone keeps hanging I'd suggest you to take it to a Sony center, because it could be a hardware problem.
