nexusae0_sony-xperia-sSony Mobile has just released a full list of improvements that the recent 6.2.B.1.96 firmware update brought to the Xperia S,  Xperia SL and Xperia acro S.

The update brought some significant improvements over the earlier Android 4.1.2 build, including performance and stability enhancements. See the full list of changes below.

For camera, we’ve…

addressed an abnormality in the white balance
improved the “Quick Launch” button functionality
smoothed out (1080p) video recording, minimizing lag

For apps, services & data, we’ve…

streamlined Exchange Active Sync, particularly when running an encrypted set-up
boosted connection stability for 2G network data
ensured preferences on 3rd party apps remain after reboot – not a common problem, but we understand it can be a frustrating one!

For battery, we’ve…

economised power consumption, and heat dispersion for longer life
corrected juice level notifications, especially when running low

And for hardware & UI, we’ve…

introduced a home key long-press to launch Google Now, and a double-press to launch Recent Apps
made sure the volume “up” button is fully responsive
