Sony Xperia Z1

The Sony Xperia Z1 on Rogers in Canada is getting an update to Android 4.4.4. The Xperia Z1 has been certified for an update to 4.4.4 since last month with unlocked phones getting the update then, but it's now Rogers' turn.

On the docket for the Xperia Z1 update:

  • New simple home launcher from Xperia Z2
  • New Xperia Home launcher (version 6.2.1.A.0.11)
  • TV Sideview app (could be a regional app)
  • More stable UI and usual performance enhancements

If you've got the update, let us know what you think!

Sony Xperia Z1 in Canada gets an update to Android 4.4.4


Hopefully the Z2 comes soon. I'm still showing on 4.4.2. I just did an update when I got the phone Friday. Guess it's not a big rush for the US market since it's newer? Iono. But I like that Sony has been aggressively updating and supporting their phones. Another reason I returned the G3 and got this.

I hope it comes to my Z2 soon. Double tap to wake is horribly inconsistent. I also hope that Sony will remove their "what's new" app from Google Now's swipe up gesture. I know they won't but a boy can dream.

Outside of piss poor reception, the lack of any support for such a great phone was a major disappointment.
