As the first phase of updating the existing devices with the KitKat OS, Sony upgraded Xperia Z1, Xperia Z1 Compact and Xperia Z Ultra in March. After receiving the update, users started raising complaints regarding reduced audio quality in phone speaker, rapid battery draining issues, low volume in notification tones and weak Wi-Fi connection among other minor issues.
Following the same, Sony acknowledged these problems and released a statement suggesting that it will push software patch that will fix the bugs. Now, the smartphone trio has received the Android 4.4.4 KitKat update that has been released lately by Google.
The company has taken it on Twitter by posting a tweet reading, “and Android 4.4.4; KitKat rolling (phased) for #XperiaZ1, #ZUltra & #Z1Compact – app improvements, camera tweaks, security updates & more!” However, it will definitely take a while for the vendor to roll out the update across the global markets as it is carried out in phases. Anyways, those owning any of these three devices can always check for the update manually by heading on to Settings >> About phone >> Check for Update.
It is believed that the Android 4.4.4 KitKat update will bring about enhancements in security and user interface along with bug fixes. The change-log after the v4.4.4 KitKat update includes enhancements and security updates from Google, improved and updated camera experience, latest versions of Sony native apps, improvements in Google Voice, music streaming, Google+ and contacts and others.
