Sony Xperia L Official Android 4.3 Update

Sony Xperia L Official Android 4.3 Update

Sony Xperia L has already established itself as a very strong mid range Android smartphone. The phone features a very beautiful curved body, 4.30-inch Crystal Clear Display, 1GHz Processor, 480×854 pixels Resolution, 1GB RAM, 8MP Rear and 0.3MP Front Camera and many other priceless qualities. But the one thing that bothers all the current Xperia L users is the lack of stability of its firmware and lots of bugs. Even the lower device Xperia M has surpassed it in Android version and bugs fixes.

Sony Xperia L Official Android 4.3 Update

Xperia L has a gig of RAM and two Krait cores so it should be able to run KitKat quite fine. But I don’t know why Sony India has confirmed that Xperia L won’t get Android 4.4 KitKat update. They also declared that Android 4.3 JellyBean will be rolling out globally starting June, 2014. As this update will be the last update so Sony will deeply focus on Bug Fixes so all the bugs including “Battery Drains” after Android 4.2.2 update gets fixed.

Now the problem is that June has already passed and there is no sign of any Firmware update even after 3 months. Therefore I’m creating this thread so that all the unsatisfied Xperia L users can comment the problems that they are facing with their phones.

If this thread goes viral then I don’t think Sony has a single chance to avoid our demand as being their customers. Myself I’m a Xperia L user. I’m overall satisfied with the hardware and design but the buggy software is pretty disappointing.

So friends, share your experience with Xperia L with me using comments section below. This is my small attempt which may solve problems of all the Xperia L users worldwide, so let’s make it huge. Share this thread along with your friends, family or with any of your known person having Xperia L so that they can also share their experience. Later on I’ll write a mail to Sony on the behalf of you all with the link of this thread. This will surely create a huge pressure on them.

Thanks!

    Battery Drain, slow Camera interface, Low music player volume, slow response of movie app (No basic settings like adding subtitles), Old fashioned UI, limited themes, Swapping from silent mode to normal mode does not increase the system volume.. I hope Sony solves this queries in 4.3 update. I’m waiting 😉

    when sony Xperia l update to 4.3? Because I am facing so many problems while using this mobile. so please declare new android version for my device. you don’t forget the truth that the customers are the king in the market…………

    I guess Sony does not care about the existing customers instead they are busy giving low grade phones a better experience then Xperia L …. I’m starting to loose my faith in the company which I loved so much… And will not recommend it to anybody now onwards…..

    Its an awesome phone. Please fix these unnecessary irritating bugs:
    1.sometimes album shows all unwanted pics like thumbnails,cover piks etc.
    2.the contacts get doubled and tripled by the same contact. i.e, an unnecessary syncing might undergo.
    3. Camera :
    a. 2 or 3 secs delay ccapturing with which we are missing the actual shot to be taken..
    B. Taking too much time to appear the photographed pic
    C. HDR seems not working at all.
    D. In Low light, when hdr or iso or white balance. Or exposure.. Any of them used, camera just gets struck with all light rays.. Takes tooo long to focus when shifted here and there.
    E.front camera thick lines appear sometimes. And even if its. VGA. it should be working just like other phone’s vga cam. Far better than this.. Xperia l front cam can be used only when the light conditions are perfect. Otherwise no.
    4. The touch issue. Just gets presses over other area when using swiftly or during multi touch
    5, sound: when the battery gets low. The external speaker sound gets tooooo low.
    6:the proximity light doesnt gets off after hanging up calls.this happens alternatively.
    7.battery : where there is no option to replace the 1750 mah battery u people chose for. Please add ultra power saving modes for better backup.
    8. Unnecessary noise during calls. even the call clarity isnt that good enough. Etc. there are many more actually.
    New themes and all later on. First please put an end to all these stupid bugs. Its not important for lollipop or kitkat or 4.3 update.. one system update that can put an end to all these and make this a super smartphone is enough.. Thank you.
    Good work.. ritesh.. Thanks for this blog. please collect all mutual bugs of us and report sony. we will be delighted.. thank u

      Hello Pavan,

      Thanks for this descriptive bugs recipe lol. You actually mentioned almost all the problems with XL and no doubt on that. I agree, Xperia L is a great phone in its price range but software is what that makes this phone a little annoyance for the users.

      I’ve created this thread only to get views of my readers so that I can pass the message later on to Sony so that they can look into this carefully 🙂

      Thanks again 🙂

    Yeah, I am also waiting for the update. There is plenty of issues in this model.
    1. Camera is damn slow.
    2. Sometimes touch become unresponsive.
    3. Proximity light always remains on which is the main reason for battery drainage.
    4. Battery doesn’t even last for a day.
    5. Sometimes automatically get switched off.

    I request the Sony authorities that if they are reading this, then kindly solve these issue in order to be among the competitors in mobile phone era.

    Xperia L is good phone on it’s worth in last few years… Nowadays Sony launching so many mobiles around 10-15k with new version… i bought it for 16.5k…!! still with old version what a tragedy… Sony have to upgrade our xl and fix bugs as soon as possible… we r lost our patience… it’s a humble request… don’t disappoint us…

    My xperia l is running fine, though there are some bugs which need to be fixed like camera and old UI. I want Sony to release next system updates for xperia l, which will prove as a great help for Sony users.

    Sony has started to suck as it has nkt released a kitkat update for xperia L and not released a update for the bug fixs. Other phones have kitkat but xperia l is still working on the OUTDATED jellybean. Some apps require kitkat but i cant use them in my xperia l

    i am over all satisfied with Xperia L, since 2 years i was using Xperia L. never have any restart problem and all but i am facing only one issue and that is memory leakage. my internal memory gets full . expecting to be fixed in 4.3 update.

  41. 46

    Honestamente estoy muy encantado con el xperia L pero es cierto que varias app requieren 4.4 y creo que el xperia L tiene la capacidad para soportar kitkat sin mucho problema pienso que Sony debería considerarlo seriamente…. un saludo

    First of all, great work Ritesh,

    thanks a lot for creating this thread.

    Myself facing the same probs as above users. To my knowledge sony wont roll out any “Kitkat or Lollipop” update. However they can roll out an update to fix the bugs at present.

    Lets wait and see what the sony corp going to do.

    Thanks

    Status bar clock delayed (which makes my alarm not wake me up), Google Play downloads are stuck for 10-15 mins. at at least 75%, in Settings when I turn something on it takes like 10min. and longer to activate even when someone is calling me sometimes the call process doesn’t respond and phone is slowed down. All happened after turning on stamina mode. Even after many factory resets the problems are still (even one time it got to a bootloop).
