Ane 1 in india got the kitkat update for zl. When ita gnna arrive in india??
I think ZL is the best cell phone overall , except the battery drainage issue from the 1st day till & after Kit Kat.
The most weird thing is now that ; If I start charging it off the Wall outlet when the phone is ON, it either does not charge(shows as charging though !) , or completes charging in around 24 hours !!!!
In other words ; it consumes as same power than charging , just at standby !!!!!
However, if the phone is OFF , it fully charges in 1-2 hours.
I see that there are many cell addicts in this Forum, PLS HELP.
As full charge lasts half a day at minor usage!!!.
Thanks in advance.
I don’t know exactly what I did to solve the problem of battery draining
in my Xperia after the update to KitKat. But now it seems to be OK. =)
Here is what I’ve tried:
1) go to Settings > Apps > Running and kill all “Google Play services” apps including those listed in “Cached processes”;
2) Installed and run GServiceFix ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.playfulgeeks.gservicefix);
3) Recharge the smartphone to 100%;
4) Uninstall the GServiceFix;
5) check Power management > Battery usage (Google Play service is not listed as consumer anymore)
In my Xperia (c6503) the battery usage after 4 hours and 15 min is 84%!!!
Screen consumption in 26%, Mediaserver 14%, Android System 12%, Walkman 12%, etc.
I hope to hear from you..
Updated to 4.2.2 kit kat. Battery drains real fast. Checked the power consumption under battery usage and noticed media is consuming 69%. Don't know how to shut this down. Phone is real hot and loosing power. My phone drained from 95% to 35% in 4 hours in standby mode. WTF!!!
If u have battery issue in kitkat update download Gservicefix from play store
Battery draining issue will be solved
sonymobile7, 26 May 2014How is the batter after update to kitkat? I am about to update to kitkat directly from jelly ... moreIf battery life is an issue for you, it's better to keep Android Jelly Bean version on your smartphone, cause Kit Kat Android system is consuming more energy than before and STAMINA is not upholding the battery as expected. =(
After I updated my Xperia C6503 to Kit Kat, I realized the batery drains faster than before, even with the STAMINA mode on. Before the update the battery used to last all day long, for aprox 16 hours. Is there anyone else with the same problem? Please report!
How is the batter after update to kitkat?
I am about to update to kitkat directly from jelly bean 4.2.2, bcz no update was available My phone is from USA and I used it in middle east.
Phone is superb but battery drains fast.
So I don't need battery to drain faster than that
After updating to kitkat 4 4 2, my battery drains very fast, when I checked the battery usage, i discover goggle play services is taking like 80‰, any suggestions on how to fix this
A few more great things I found out after the update:
1. The camera now gives you an option to choose between two ratios in superior auto mode: 16:9 & 4:3. The latter takes pictures in around 11MP. That is something that Sony did great. The 16:9 takes the same 8.4MP pictures.
2. The in built keyboard is now better than before and understands words better.
3. Now you can open as many mini apps as you want (previously it was only one).
Yet I expected that Sony would add a video call option, tap unlock (Xperia Z2) options to the update.
Anyway, that's my observation.
When 4.4.2 kitkat version is coming to Malaysia??? Please reply me, Thanks :-)

I have updated my ZL into 4.4.2 yesterday and till now everything is running perfectly smooth. Though I didn't like the status bar change, but I guess with time I'll get used to it. The The icons remained the same, only the battery icon changed in the status bar. Now you can switch various icons on or off (show/hide) from status bar. The camera is now even better. You can now take multiple shots (burst shots) just by press and hold on the screen (if you enable touch capture) or the virtual shutter or the mechanical shutter. The picture quality didn't increase that much, but the burst time is now much less (it can take more photoes than before in a given time). The video remained the same, but the sound quality in the walkman seemed to be increased a little bit.
These are the primary things that I noticed in last 24 hours. I expected that Sony will let us choose the notification color (like SP), but that isn't the case.
Those who have updated your phone, please leave a few lines about your experience after the upgrade.
