Fake Hang and SOD issue on Xperia Z Ultra are the serious ones and we expected that 14.1.B.1.532 firmware update will sort them out but unfortunately many users are still reporting the same issue. It’s not proper SOD issue, it’s like a Fake SOD issue occurring on phone. Bluetooth transfer speed increased a bit. Battery back up almost same. Home transition a bit laggy for us.

If you have updated your Xperia Z Ultra on 14.1.B.1.532 firmware then let us know is SOD issue still there for you or not. Drop your comments.

Thanks Richard Loh 🙂

    after update , got hanging issues , will not start or will start after many attempts. had to factory re-set , right now it seems fine but it’s a pain in the arse with the factory re-sent , even with the back-up.

    just to be clear , before firmware update , everything was fine.
    After update , it Hangs.
    It hangs mainly when there is a notification on screen ( line for expample ) .. it just freezes and I have to re-start the phone.
