If you have been wondering why on earth there has not been a Xperia Tablet Z Android 4.4.2 update as yet, then you might have noticed that this latest edition of KitKat started to rollout yesterday. This is certainly great news, but this update will be made to feel old if 4.4.3 is released tomorrow as rumored.
However, let us not take away the fact that the Xperia Tablet Z will now run and have an overall far better feel following this latest update. However, we have heard from a few readers that they have experienced Sony Xperia Tablet Z battery life problems since updating to Android 4.4.2, although this does not seem to be a widespread issue.
Looking on the Sony Mobile website, it isn’t just the Tablet Z that received the update yesterday, as the Xperia Z, ZL and ZR also got the update. For those of you with the Xperia T2 Ultra, E1 and M2, you will have to wait until July before the update becomes available to you.
Now that you have updated your Sony Xperia device to Android 4.4.2 KitKat, you will now notice some updated features, such as several UI adjustments to Messaging, Smart Social Camera now appears on these first generation Z devices, as well as Battery Stamina Mode, although this has made battery life worse for some people, unless they have forgot to active this feature?
For full details on these changes, then we ask that you visit the Sony Mobile website. Going back to Android 4.4.3, we will keep you fully informed if this will go live tomorrow for the Nexus 4, 5, 7 and 10.
