New Xperia L firmware released with build 15.3.A.1.14

in Firmware, Xperia L series

xl_Sony-Xperia-L-624Sony Mobile has released a new firmware update with build number 15.3.A.1.14 for the Xperia L. Users are reporting that the update is rolling out for C2104 and C2105 handsets. Sony itself just tweeted about the update citing “performance tweaks, camera improvements, homescreen UI refresh & more“.

However, we think that this changelog relates to the previous 15.3.A.1.12 build that was released at the end of December 2013. The new update rolling from today (15.3.A.1.14) is likely to bring only minor bug fixes, such as for those having problems with the proximity sensor and performance tweaks.

Changelog according to Sony:

•Improved home screen with enhanced look and feel
•Camera picture quality improved in low lighting conditions
•Camera improvements when using HDR and the preview screen
•Memory management improved when using music streaming services
•Enhanced stability and optimised performance

    I feel for you man, poor Xperia M hasn’t got any Android version update-only minor bug fixes which was months ago. Hopefully Kit-Kat arrives for the L/M & is worth the wait.

    This is why my bro left the Xperia M for the Moto G, now he is enjoying Kit-Kat.

  • jet199

    Good update but i wish that sooner it should get 4.3
    because Xperia E1 has it and XL can handle it with no problemo.

    The Xperia L proximity sensor bug: when you finish a call the proximity sensor does not turn off. To turn it off you need to make a call and then end it. It’s really annoying.

  • Samz

    Achay bhalay mobile ko lulli pher k rakh di he new update ne.

  • New Deep

    When a call comes in, you bring the phone close to your ear. Other smartphones immediately shut off the screen, but xperia-m shuts off the screen only sometimes, and that too only very close to the ear, and also, if you move the phone a little, while still close to the ear, the screen lights up and shuts down intermittently, causing some phone buttons to be pressed by the face/ cheek by mistake.

    Secondly, during a call, when the screen is made off, in other smartphones, when the other party disconnects the call, your phone’s screen lights up for some moments, informing you that the other person has ended the call. But in xperia-m, if the screen is off during a call, and the other person ends the call, the xperia-m screen does not light up.

    2. Focus locks, then refocuses again blurring anything you take a photo of
