Anonymous, 31 Jul 2014sony xperia z or zl? Which is goodBoth are Excellent SONY cells!
Just updated my 1 year ZL to Kitkat (US version) , rooted the phone and have total contol of its settings. All I can say is, everything looks good. I changed my old problematic battery to a new one, wipe everything after update, delete any battery stats, charged it to 100%, let it discharged to 0,and fully charged it again, the battery lasts 1.5 days on normal use. I use microcpu monitor to monitor cpu activities and when it's idle, it uses less cpu power at its lowest clock speed. So, no heat issue. I believe my LG G2 F320K gets jealous with my ZL's new UI look :)
Does anyone have a problem wid the Ir remote? Mine doesn't seem to work properly after the update.please help

Today i got a small update on xperia Zl 10.5.A.0.230 it's about 200 kb and i have already updated it to kitkat
I have a SONY Xperia ZL,that has 2 issues:
1. whenever I re-charge it,the charging frequently stops without completing,& the message says "battery charging stops because of using the power more than re-charging" but whenever I check my mobile I always find that there are no more applications open and the display lights is almost off.
2. The battery is overheating more than the usual, I am afraid it may blast while charging, even if I have remove it from the charger, i would not be able to use the mobile unit for about 10 to 15 minutes , because it is very hot and may burn my face,also I cannot even kept it inside my pants pocket i am wearing because of so much heat.
Please advise if it is repairable, because I went to SONY Barrak Company in Kuwait, they said it is normal and they dont even wanted to check it.
I just bought the unit in CARREFOUR last 6-Jul-14, I went to CARREFOUR and complain about it on 14, but they told me to go to SONY repairshop,when I went to SONY barrak repairshop someone just look and said it is normal,when I went back to CARREFOUR on 20-Jul-14,they said to go to WAHRAN Trading. But WAHRAN trading Product Manager named Mohammed Attay told me last 26-Jul-14 to go to SONY repairshop in BehBehhani again,(I never noticed it was the same place where I had been )so went back to CARREFOUR again and let them give it to SONY Barrak repairshop,actually I bought the mobile for only 90 KD, but the money I consumed for TAXI transportation going back &forth is already KD 20/- it is terrible.Also the mobile as I have been informed has to be kept with SONY Barrak repairshop for 30 days .
If ever they can't solve the problem of my Xperia can they change it with other Sony Xperia even if I add an extra amount.(I like Sony Xperia very much but I cant use this mobile with built in heater.)
Please advise what is the best thing to do,incase ..
Thomas, 26 Jul 2014I've had this device for about 6 months. I got it from Wind Mobile. What is my experience with... moreAbout performance issue. Try backup all your file and data and reset the phone. After reset the performance will be better than before. And try clear the processes that you're not using in the ram to increase performance.
For heating. I played the game asphalt 8. The picture quality I put high your phone will get to 43- 46 Celsius very quickly. All those graphics actually some how unnecessary. So I turn it to low quality resolution. And I get to play all the time non stop and only reaches 40- 43+ Celsius
Well. These are my experience. You can try it on yours. Good luck
