No notification for connected headset in XA Ultra

Reporting after one week of usage.


Have used M5 Dual with pre installed android 6.0

 

 

1. When connecting headphones there is no notifications.
You can't see on top notification menu if headphone is connected or not.
But sounds play in headphones only.
I have checked this with sony and non sony headphones.
Other sounds other than music plays in speaker not in headphones. Like- facebook app like notification sound, whatsapp msg notification etc.
It's very annoying and there is no auto music start in XA ULTRA but M5 has.

2. There is no sound off option in camera. It always plays sound when taking pics, even in silent/vibration mode camera plays sound. I'm using default camera app.

3. Sometimes I get notification vibration while making wifi hotspot but there is no notification on menu. I think vibration is when someone gets connected or disconnected. It should show on notification menu also.

4. Can't move or delete apps like Sony Liv, amazon kindle, asphalt nitro, avg protection, etc which are deletable and movable in M5.

5. Some apps shows error while moving to sd card like disk is full etc but I have 16Gb of free space in my sd memory card.

These are some software problems that can be fixed with update.

I don't think so it is something to do with hardware.

Headphone and camera sound problem is urgent can someone please provide some solution for it?

Xa Ultra - Problems after and before updating to 36.0.B.2.109

1. Brightness level is not changing.

It changes very little in lowest and highest.
I have checked on both enable/disable adaptive brightness.

2. Headphone problem
When connecting headphones there is no notifications.
You can't see on top notification menu if headphone is connected or not.
But sounds play in headphones only.
I have checked this with sony and non sony headphones.
Other sounds other than music plays in speaker not in headphones. Like- facebook app like notification sound, whatsapp msg notification etc.

3. Can't move or delete apps like Sony Liv, amazon kindle, asphalt nitro, avg protection, etc which are deletable and movable in M5 dual.

Camera sound problem was solved in this update.

Headphone and Brightness is a major problem.
Battery is draining too fast.

Re: No notification for connected headset in XA Ultra

1 I am also facing same problem of brightness.
2 When headphone connected, not appearing in notification bar.
Download Smart connect app for auto start music when headphone connected.
3 We can only disable system apps. Not delete and move.
It is not a problem but may be your requirement.

xa ulta problem

Hello, 
I found 4 problem in  xa ulta 

first 2 are major and needs immediate action.

1. Contact list is not able to search special characters.
I have contacts with * or - or , but conact search is not able to search them. 
It is only searching alfanumberic words.
Please fix this problem.

2. I'm using 4G sim which supports VoLTE. I was told and I have heard some where that Xa Ultra supports VoLTE but that was not the case.
Now I can't call via my 4G sim as they only provide 4G data and calling via VoLTE.
Even my moms cheap SAMSUNG Galaxy On5 supports VoLTE.
VoLTE is just the software support 
I think sony can add that in xperia 4G support devices.
Like one plus 3 didn't supported VoLTE initially but after software update now they support VoLTE.

3. Battery is draining very fast now. One month back it was fine, but after new update 36.0B.2.109 it was started draining fast.

4. SD CARD problem. sometimes when 2-3 apps are using sd card phone gets hang. I'm using SanDisk Ultra MicroSDXC 64GB UHS-I Class 10 Memory Card which pretty fast.
I'm facing this after update only.
