For users of Sony xPeria L (C2104/C2105) like me who have been stuck with 4.1 Jelly bean it will look like ages. But it’s never late as Jelly Bean 4.2.2 has started seeding …And two days back I got OTA update for my xPeria L.
A 312 MB update took some time to download via Wifi but the actual update process took some 10 minutes before the phone was up and ready to work again. As usual its safer to take a backup with Sony PC companion which I did. The update process didn’t erase any of the contacts / messages / contents in the phone but I wasn’t able to get the mobile data working as the settings were missing which I manually entered.
The screenshot will show the build number. The most notable thing when you see the homescreen are the icons are a bit larger and the lock screen has added functionality. The app drawer has a side pullout menu, the multitasking menu has been revamped. The message app and contacts app seemed a tad bit quicker. The text appeared sharper and a new version of Sony Walkman app was also made available after the update.
The changelog details has listed some camera updates like Burst Mode & Auto scene selection. Personally I am excited about the burst mode, hope to try it soon.
From the rumors on the net it’s sad to see there has been no new announced updates for xPeria L to Android 4.3 or 4.4 . Hope this is not true….
