Xperia Z2 receiving firmware update – enhanced call quality and better performance
Sony is rolling out an update for the Xperia Z2, which, most notably, is supposed to improve the call quality – one of the few flaws of the otherwise impressive flagship. Another change is listed as "Improved charging while battery is low". Whether and how this feature functions is yet to be determined. Still, being able to plug in and quickly charge up just enough to last you for the remainder of the day, sounds nice when you are on-the-go.

Sony also claims that this update brings improved touch functions, performance, and bug fixes. Some users already claim that the Tap to wake function is working much better and that performance in general is more responsive. The latest firmware tag is 17.1.2.A.0.314 and the push-out to phones in different areas is being sporadic and unpredictable. If you want it now, your best bet is to just download it from Sony and install it on your phone via the USB cable and the official PC Companion program.

I think the call quality is already very good Ok might not be the best (I don't have that much experience) but I'm very happy with it already.

I'm a convert to the Z2. After a few Samsungs as my personal phone & HTC an iPhone (spit) as my work phones. I really like it, but the call quality isn't great.
