    Default 4.4 update for the Sony Xperia Z1s

    Saw on the front page earlier this week that the Z1 and variants are getting bumped to 4.4 really soon. I didn't see the Z1s listed but is there any Intel that would suggest we'll get it too?

    The Z1s will definitely get Kit Kat, but I think we'll be waiting a little longer. For example, T-Mobile needs to make sure that carrier specific features such as wifi calling work properly on the new software. It's the biggest downside about owning a carrier specific device.

    This isn't good. It's been 5 months and there still isn't any word at all about if this phone, which should have been released with kitkat, is even going to get it! I may just skip this phone and get something else

    It'll definitely get it, just a question of when.

    I'm pretty happy with JB and not in a big hurry to upgrade my Z1s to KitKat given the way KitKat handles SD card storage, or should I say, doesn't allow you to manage SD storage.

    SD card storage doesn't matter to me. I just want compatibility with all updated apps, and hopefully Google wallet support

    Yea, I woke up to that notification a few days ago as well. Hopefully it means the update is coming soon.

    My old htc one m7 is on its second kitkat update.
    Why is T-Mobile taking so long to release kitkat for our
    Z1s? It has already been certified for over a month now.

    Yeah this is weird. Clearly T-Mobile is ready for KitKat, they just don't wanna release it for the Z1s.

    I gave up. This phone is a total flop. No accessories, no 4.4, no support.

    Definitely dumping this phone on my first jump upgrade on July 30th. It's been slow and laggy and apps keep restarting even though they are open. The phone needs a serious update. WiFi connection constantly drops out at home and all my other devices keep a steady wifi connection.

    You should return that device. I've been using my Z1s since February and have had none of the problems or frustrations you are experiencing.

    I agree with the last comment. I came from the Note 3 and couldn't be happier. Phone is snappy fast extremely reliable with no lag, amazing battery life and outstanding camera. I probably won't upgrade to Kit kat cuz it's ruined pretty much every phone its hit.
