Xperia S, SL Jelly Bean – NFC Bug Fixing Update in Week 28 of July
Users are reporting that while using NFC on Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 and 6.2.B.0.211 firmware nothing happens after “touch to beam” option. Well on reply to this, Sony Xperia Support Member “Johan” replied that a new NFC bug fixing update will be rolling out in the Week 28 of July i.e during the period 8 July 2013 to 14 July.
Main bugs in Xperia S, SL Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 and 6.2.B.0.211 firmware
- 1080p full HD resolution video capture lags a lot, though 720p HD Video mode is working fine.
- Battery Drain and Heating is a serious issue. Battery is draining at 2x speed as compared to ICS for many users. Phone gets heats up to 45-48C in 15 minutes of continuous usage. Though official support claiming that battery stabilizes after a week but nothing like that happened.
- 2G Mobile Data connectivity issue. On 2G mode mobile data runs very slow, we are able to connect to internet but no able to download or surf anything. Error 927 pops up on Google Play disallowing us to download anything.
- Wi-Fi issues, people are not able to connect over Wi-Fi. Either the Wi-Fi don’t detect any router of if it does you are not able to connect over it. Though Wi-Fi issue resolved for us after doing factory data reset.
Well in case we want to tell you that Sony Xperia Support has looked to “2G Mobile Data connectivity issue” and it is hopefully fixed in upcoming updates as we can by seeing the response from official Sony Xperia Support member.
Another minor bug is that, whenever battery is low to 14%, Xperia S, SL users on Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 and 6.2.B.0.211 firmware gets a notification of “Switch to Stamina Mode for power management” but actually Xperia S and SL doesn’t have any Stamina Mode. So it’s a minor bug, warning should be switching on to “Extended battery Mode”.
Well Sony Xperia Support made it clear that Xperia S and SL on Jelly Bean will not be supporting Stamina Mode ever confirmed.
As per now many answers have been cleared by these statements by official Sony Xperia Support. Well we are now looking forward to 28 week of July for the upcoming update and seeing which bugs will be fixed or not.
