Android 4.2.2 15.3.A.1.12 firmware update was recently rolled on Xperia L which was a major update and brought many fixes for the bugs but it seems current 15.3.A.1.12 firmware is troubling many Xperia L users as per comments received by us. Just now we spotted another minor bug fixing update 15.3.A.1.14 firmware has been certified for Xperia L on PTCRB website.

15.3.A.1.14 firmware certification is seen only for Xperia L C2015 so far now on PTCRB ans we hope soon it certifies for Xperia L C2104 also. Seeing Sony’s current firmware updating process it should come soon if it is actually meant to be rolled out.

[ UPDATE – 16 Jan ]

    Just updated my Xperia L(c2104) through OTA. Disappointed to see new bugs.
    Proximity sensor problem
    Screen tearing problem still exists but it’s down to 4 to 5 pixels rows from 10 to 15 or so.
    Thumb nails of movies in movies app are still very blurry.
    YouTube videos are very pixilated (don’t know problem is from YouTube or my phone itself. But before 4.2.2 was good)
    Auto brightness is not accurate
    Takes 4 to 5 seconds to process pictures when using auto scene recognise mode

    After update my XL C2105: (good thing)
    1. when restarting, all icon menu is stay on the folder now.
    2. camera improvement, when portrait or landscape, no line crossing screen because is take effect when I playing PvZ2.
    3. Touchscreen is get better and responsive.

    But still get me wonder:
    1. My XL is still restart by itself.
    2. Sometimes some application are close unexpectedly, such as gmail.

    My hope is:
    1. Please make it device memory and internal storage to merge into one internal storage like Xperia SP.
    2. Please add quick setting on XL like Xperia SP 4.3, hehe…

    So that’s what I can share to you. Thanks

    Another bug I noticed in the recent update to my Xperia L is after ending an incoming call the home screen freezes, when I try to navigate, only the background wallpaper moves and nothing else And After exiting chrome browser, home screen restarts.
