  • Update Lifelog default height and weight measurements to standard
  • Optimize oversized email retransmit to reduce data usage
  • Improved NFC performance
  • Ensure emails with HTML links are displayed without a clickable link
  • Enable HD video playback on Google Play Movies

  • I have been waitingfor Z3 on ATT, looks like it will never come.
  • Go to and pick up an unlocked version, buddy. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I've been using my Z3 on AT&T since November.
  • Wife has Z3 on AT&T & got OTA update from Sony last night. Changes were a little different than those listed from Z3V. Sound improvements, photo/camera, Exchange mail is all I recall. Great phone! Posted via Android Central App
  • Was surprised to see an update show today on the review unit I received yesterday. Did not take long to install and reboot.
  • Thanks, pulling it down now.
  • i bought a z1 a couple years ago, and was disappointed by how buggy the Sony experience was. I was so excited because the phone had all the technology I was looking for, despite the suboptimal software for the camera module. I learned my lesson, and went back to my origial MO: buying phones that have a healthy developer community and remain fully functional after boot/unlock. The mature ROM's on xda usually provide a much better user experience, imo.
  • I updated earlier today. It through my phone into a boot loop. I would jump into recovery mode and try to go into safe mode. Unfortunately, it even went into a boot loop during that process. I am able to shut down my phone through the same recovery mode. I can do a factory reset, but I would lose some photos and videos. Any other suggestions?
  • " Enable HD video playback on Google Play Movies" It wasn't doing that before?? Omg. Posted via the Android Central App
