Sony have announced this will be happening in the next few weeks and that it will fix the chronic issues with battery life that have been present since the 4.4.2 update.

Does anyone with an inside line to O2 know when we will actually be getting it?
Having to recharge three times per day without actually using the phone is a little frustrating.....

Australia always seem to be one of the first countries serviced by Sony for updates.
O2 will take their usual time to check everything works to their liking before rolling it out......
I know Chris is looking into it so hopefully he can update us soon.

Today I received a message that an update was available and that it needs to be done via a computer. About 15 minutes later, 4.4.4 firmware successfully installed.
Re-activated location services and so far google play services only account for 9% of battery use. Sony xperia Z on O2 contract

Is it an OTA update then or one that's needs connecting to the pc companion? Will give it a go later today when I get home.
Ironically I bought a second hand Xperia SP to keep me going till the Z was updated - it lags awfully! Sounds like it won't be getting an update though 😞

Just a quick update re google play services, running at 18% but a lot better than 80% or more that it was before. Have not really noticed anything else, battery life is currently 37% from a full charge at about 7am. But using a lot of hands free bluetooth during the day so not sure if this has a major effect.

I find it less so required with Sony devices as it seems with Samsung, but if you notice any strange behavior or lagging after the update it is wise to consider it.

Thanks @MI5, finally got PC companion updated (and my very slow Windows laptop restarted!) and connected the phone and so far no update 😞
Think it's a sim-free model, which I think hasn't had the updated through yet? Will keep checking PC Companion though.
Cheers for the info re. resetting, didn't fancy signing back into all my apps again and setting them up again unless I have to!
