Sony rolling out new firmware update for the Xperia Z1 that fixes camera issues
Sony has begun rollout of a new firmware that fixes minor issues like image quality and Wi-Fi connectivity that has been affecting Xperia Z1 users.
The latest firmware for the Xperia Z1 is 14.1.G.2.257, and it fixes a few flaws that were noticed on the device. The update still retains the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean version, but now features enhancements to the camera algorithm that should result in better images. After the launch of the Z1, a lot of users mentioned that the images were coming out grainy and that there was a lot of noise. This update should fix that issue, along with the intermittent Wi-Fi connectivity that has also been a problem for some users.
Other notable changes include better power management, and extending the range of the Wi-Fi. Touch sensitivity has also been enhanced, and Sony has mentioned that this firmware should fix exchange sync issues.
The update is available for the Xperia Z1 C6903 (LTE) model and the Xperia Z1 C6902 (Global HSPA+).
