[4th August 2014] List of all problems for Xperia Z
UPDATED 4th August 2014
UPDATE: ONLY REPORT ISSUES IF YOU ARE ON STOCK ROM
Hey guys, here is a list of all the problems that i have seen on the xperia z forums as i was browsing.
just wanted to share and put it into one place.
Feel free to contribute, i will update post when new problems are discovered
NOTE: these are issues encountered on the 434 firmware
FOR 434 FIRMWARE:
1. weak wifi strength
2. phone does get a bit hot
3. camera takes a long time to load
There is a new 253 firmware that improves performance and the wifi signal strength and possibly other optimisations too
FOR 253 FIRMWARE:
1. Camera still takes a while to load, although it is slightly quicker
2. Wifi is still a bit weak
I feel the phone doesn't get as hot anymore and that the camera quality has improved
FOR 101 FIRMWARE:
1. Memory management seems to be an issue, apps stop multitasking properly after about a week.
2. people reported dialer and messages app being slow, although i haven't had that issue.
3. Camera still takes a while to open, just like on original firmware
TO DO LIST: new .227 or .230 kitkat firmware.
It looks like the wifi is actually strong now too
issues are slowly disappearing. yay
FOR 230 KITKAT FIRMWARE
1. camera still takes a long time to start
2. device has gotten laggier, most noticeably when pulling down the notification shade
3. Sometimes cannot make outgoing calls and cannot receive calls, restarting the device fixes the issue
