Another regarding Sony support in New Zealand where useless was altered to unless . 
just so everyone knows not all the information or issues, concerns that you post may be seen by all, due to Sony media containment that will hide the truth to protect the Sony brand. This is propaganda at work. As a media professional it is clear there are many more issues that Sony are hiding because of this action. Freedom of speech and expression is international law in most countries, but maybe not in Japan. be warned members..Gutsy

Re: can i downgrade from android 9?

Well volume control is not working properly even as wifi and definitely the smart backlight control. Haven't had any issues with battery management in the prior Android anyways.

These things shouldn't have been changed in my opinion. It only makes the experience not good.
