Well, that didn't take long - as soon as the Xperia Z2 system dump appeared
, the set of camera, media and phone apps that come with the new flagship, has been ported to all Xperia smartphones, running Android 4.3+.
From the set of Camera Apps, this includes Creative Effects, AR Effect 2.0.4, and Background Defocus 1.1.7. Media handling is represented by the Walkman and Movies applications, while the calling functions can be upgraded with the Answering Machine app.
