Posted on Dec 6 2013 - 7:15pm by Ashish Kumar

Sony recently crowned Xperia L with android 4.2.2 15.3.A.0.26 firmware update with which Xperia L joined the elite club of Xperia Z series which were already on android 4.2.2 firmware a lot ago. Thought the 15.3.A.0.26 firmware update brought many new features on Xperia L but with it brought some bugs too.

Xperial L 15.3.A.0.27 firmware ( android 4.2.2 ) is recently certified on PTCRB, a minor bug fixing update over previous android 4.2.2 15.3.A.0.26 firmware. 15.3.A.0.27 firmware is spotted for both Xperia L C2105 and C2104. No ETA for the 15.3.A.0.27 firmware update yet. We saw many users who were asking us to post previous firmware builds which clearly states that the current firmware has some serious bugs.

No specific date is there for the release of 15.3.A.0.27 firmware but it should come soon hopefully, a delightful news for all Xperia L owners. Sony has recently exposed its plans for android 4.3 update and android 4.4 update. It is very much clear not that android 4.3 will not come to Xperia L but it should be in the second batch of devices getting android 4.4 update next year.

    I am also facing all the bugs mentioned above, plus i also have a problem with the folders i.e after creating folders, if i restart my phone then most of the apps come out of the folder, and the folder becomes empty :(.

      you can solve this problem by software repair option in pc companion. i had also this problem, but i repaired and its fine now. first backup your data on internal storage, because all data will be lost in repair. open pc companion, go to support Zone, click on software repair. it will reinstall the software. you need an internet connection for this.

        No, I have allready done factory reset and nothing changed. In support forum many users wrote the same issue and nothing helped, reseting, repairing, nothing. I expected that it should be repaired with this new firmware.

    Image quality is very bad, the flash just make the picture darker, and the screen being flickering when it in the lowest brightness

    1 – The camera on the lock screen does not work.

    2 – When I press the button on/off (with the cell lysate, only with the screen off) the screen not connecting, have to be pressing the button repeatedly to turn on the screen.

    3 – Xperia Home keeps crashing

    I hope that Sony can solve these problems as soon as possible …

    I also think that Sony could perfect the little more in the settings menu, adding some good options to personalize, among others …

    It would be great if Sony also put an option to restart the phone, it would be splendid.

    Support OTG cables would be great.

    It’s a shame the Xperia L have not supported OTB cable!
