in Firmware, Xperia C

2014-01-10 14.55.05The dual-SIM MediaTek powered Sony Xperia C (C2305) has up until now not received a single firmware update. The phone launched with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean on build version 16.0.B.0.21, however Sony is now rolling out a new update with build number 16.0.B.2.6 (still Android 4.2.2). The build number moves up from 16.0.B.0.XX to 16.0.B.2.X but at this point we’re not sure of the exact changes made.

We hope that Sony has fixed a number of issues that users have reported including the quality of the camera, severe battery drain below 30%, low volume via the headphone jack, apps disappearing from the home screen on reboot and internal memory restrictions. Initial reports suggest that the new update brings performance improvements and the app home screen problem seems to be resolved. If you have downloaded the update, let us know what changes you’ve noticed in the comments below.
