Xperia Z2 update (23.0.1.A.3.9) released for O2 Germany

in Firmware, Xperia Z2

Xperia Z2_O2 GermanySony recently released the Android 4.4.4 KitKat update for the Xperia Z2 series in the form of build number 23.0.1.A.0.167. Prior to its release, we had seen a newer build certified with version number 23.0.1.A.3.9 and speculated whether this is the build that might see global release. Well build number 23.0.1.A.3.9 has started to roll and it looks like it is a carrier-specific update only – currently released on O2 Germany only. If you’ve updated let us know your impressions below.

Update: Screenshot for the update shows that the baseband version has moved from build ’12’ to ’18’ [Thanks Aaron!]

    What about sim-free Portugal

  • Marco Sobrevilla

    I thought by now there would be something about how the Z3 Compact has started shipping in the U.S.A.

    I am in portugal with sim-free and receive it already.

  • so they pushed the new ugly ui on us white folders instead of transparent? super obvious app button

    and that stupid forced google search this is sortof a dealbreaker for me

  • Marcel de Boer

    Pinch on home screen and disable google search

  • Jorge

    I dont understand. I have nothing. Is it possible that my version is not portugueese. The Z2 was bought on Amazon Spain, is it another country upgrade???? What can i do?

  • jonyah

    I wish. Well, I wish the LTE version would be available.

    I live in India (mumbai) and I just installed the new Firmware update (with Android 4.4.4)

  • Rob

    Just installed for EE UK Z2.

  • EPGuest

    The App icons are HUGE and why did they make the UI look more like the Google Now Launcher or the standard Android UI? I liked the Sony things much better

    Had the update yesterday on O2 UK. I’ve noticed the battery has taken a hammering since. Just today my battery has dropped to 84% in 4 hours and I haven’t hardly used the phone. A mate of mine has the Z3 and his battery life has taken a hammering too since the update.

  • Not just me that noticed that then.

    It’s horrid, it takes up too much space on the screen.

    Mind you, the new AR apps on the camera are good.
