Re: Sony Xperia Z2 - Available for pre-order NOW!

Its arrived.
Sony Xperia Z Tablet 16GB SPG311

Not sure all is well though ???
The front and back seals on the box were broken but there were two unbroken seals on either side.

Opened it up and all looks well.
Android version is 4.1.2
Over the air upgrades to 4.2.2 but thats as far as it goes.
I thought they ship with 4.3 and can be upgraded to 4.4 ???
Does anyone have any thoughts on this ?
Is it very old stock ?

I received mine yesterday and begain the process of updating it. It doesn't just update to the latest version you have to do each update one after another. I can't remember how many I did (maybe 4) but its currently at 4.42 (Kitkat) so just keep checking for updates and updating it.

I cant get past 4.2.2, when I check for system updates it says I am have the latest.

Not sure how to get any later updates to it.

Any ideas ?

Are you going into the sony app update centre? keep refreshing that. The last few updates are a little different and look like sony specific updates rather than android updates but they update you to the latest version.

Yeah its 4 full updates one at a time.

I would be wary about upgrading at the moment, I am experiencing battery drain issues related to Google Play Services after upgrading to the latest software, it seems to be a common problem if you read the comments in this Xperia Blog post:

Turning off the location settings has not worked for me, the battery drain and laggy menus are still present.  It was mentioned in another thread to perform a hard reset which I am going to try tonight.

A more reliable service for updates is Sony Ericsson update service as pc companion fails a lot of times on new firmware.

@masterwai
4G delivered but the security seals on the box were resealed, there were slight signs that it was not straight out the box brand new. Maybe we got refurbished units, but it all seems good so far.
