Today I was notified that version 17.1.1.A.0.402 is available for update (through PC companion and Sony update app).

I am currently updating and hope for major improvements (eg. touchscreen response).

I am coming from 36 and this is the first update offered to me.

Has anyone found a changelog or similar?

I also just received it for LTE in the UK. Its updated and I think the touch response could actually be better. For example I usually need a few tries to get the unlock pattern to work but now it works first time. Still I need more time to test before I can say its fixed.

I cant see anything else new yet. A change log would certainly be nice. Great that Sony are active with updates though! This is the happiest Ive been with any Android device.

Germany, LTE model, findings so far:

- Far better touch response, waking up the Z2 via double-tap (using fingers, not firearms) now clearly better working
- Larger "hit zone" of Android symbols
- Less touchscreen problems in general, but needs some long-term experience

BUT ("but" seems to be an integral part of Sony devices nowadays):
- Waking up via double-tap does not always work, sometimes the Z2 reacts on tapping at special zones (center and above), only
- Hit zones of Android symbols sometimes shrink again to the former state; restart cures that for a while
- Short audio interruption when changing screen orientation a bit better, but still present
- SD card still read-only (I know, it's caused by Google - but not solving that problem is caused by Sony)
- Z2 still bent

Strange: I've got Z2 tablets. One of them had extreme touchscreen issues, the other one showed almost no issues at all.
Now I've got the feeling that the "worse" Z2 (bare naked) works better than the previously "good" Z2 (enclosed by a protective case). But I am not real sure, yet.
