  1. I updated few days ago to the Firmware released 25.3.2013 for an unbranded Z in Europe. The update only worked with a PC and the Sony PC Companion.
    This went smooth in about 15-25min.
    But since I have updated, the phone drains the battery twice as fast than before and charging takes much longer (today 4 hours usage drowned from 90% to 39% with one call and a bit chrome usage. Charging takes now 3 hours to go back to 90%.
    Also the phone seems to drop connection to the mobile operator (sunrise) for phone calls, sms and also data. What helps is only to reboot the phone or put it into airplane mode and back.
    hope Sony will fix that soon.
