Xperia Z, ZL and ZR get Update to Boost Performance and Fix Bugs

Just yesterday, Chad wrote about the Sony Xperia ZR getting an Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update which brings a ton of new features to the Xperia family smartphone.  If you have the Xperia ZR, you know that the update was long overdue and I hope that the roll-out has reached you and that you have already updated to take advantage of all the new features and tools.

Today though, owners of the Xperia Z, ZL and ZR have a reason to smile as Sony is rolling out an Android 4.2.2 minor update that brings quite a number of fixes and performance improvements.  The update, rolled out over the air (OTA) but can be downloaded and online and installed, does not bring significant appearance changes to the devices but it fixes various issues including making the boot animation smoother and improves RAM management, touch response and 3G signal strength.

The update also brings a handful of changes to the camera including enabling access to high resolution images while the HDR feature is not in use and improvement of low-light performance.  Sony says that the new update fixes quite a number of bugs including fixing screen flickers, improving sleep and wake times and inaccurate battery readings.

This may be a minor update for the three devices but it is clear it brings very useful improvements and bug fixes.  If you have any of these devices and have been having performance issues or any bugs, update when you get the prompt or go to your device’s settings and either enable automatic update checking or check it manually.  Let us know what bugs are fixed or features added once you install it and try it out, other Xperia Z, ZL and ZR users would love to know.

Thanks to Android Central.
