Sony Xperia Z Android 4.2.2 update may hit soon


The Sony Xperia Z is up there at the top of the Android smartphone pile along with the Galaxy S4 and HTC One, and the device has some high end specifications along with unique features that the standard versions of its rivals don’t offer. It is being suggested now that the Sony Xperia Z Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update may arrive soon.

When the Sony Xperia Z was first released back in February it shipped with the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean firmware installed, but Sony promised that it would release the Android 4.2.2 update shortly after the handset had arrived.

This has obviously proved not to be the case but the likelihood of it arriving soon has now increased following the certification of two versions of the firmware that may mean the updates release is imminent. One is for a build number of 10.1.1.A.1.319 and is thought to be another version of 4.1 Jelly Bean, while the other one has a build number of 10.3.A.0.407 that is hinting at something different.

There have been rumours recently suggesting that Sony and Google were going to team up to provide a Google version of the Sony Xperia Z, and if true you would have thought the company would provide Android 4.2 Jelly Bean to those that already own the standard version of the handset before releasing a model that would ship with the later firmware.

    I have owned the Xperia Z phone just a little over a month. While the phone has excellent features, the glass used on the phone is very poor. The phone is now full of scratches. That said, I am even willing to purchase a screen protector, but I have yet to find one available. Visited the Sony Store in Vegas, called customer service, and no assistance provided or an offer to replace the screen. I will not ever purchase a Sony product again after having owned Several Vaio’s and even a Z laptop. Bad service, poor quality product. Do not buy this phone!

      Hey guy, the Xperia Z has a factory fitted screen protector. This is what is getting scratched (it is very prone to scratches as you can see!) and is not the glass itself, which is ironically extremely tough. You can remove the built in screen protector with relative ease (youtube it) to uncover the beautiful screen beneath, but bear in mind this will also remove the Sony logo which is part of it.

    It’s not scratch resistant, but it’s supposed to make your glass shatter proof.

    I’ll keep my built in screen protector on, until it’s get too scratchy and then I’ll take it off and look for a hard case or back case at least.
