Bugs 14.4.A.0.157

Dear Sony,

I have the Z1 Compact 4.4.4 with build number 14.4.A.0.157 and I want to report two bugs that were also in 14.4.A.0.108.
First of all, in Call Settings, the Increasing Volume won't work. If I enable or disable it it's the same think, it's ringing at max. from start. Please fix this.

Secondly, this is very, very strange, but in the game 'Don't touch the spikes' from Ketchapp, I have a really strange lag everytime I unlock the phone with the game being in stand-by. I mean, I keep the game open, I lock the phone, Unlock it, and then enter in the game, and surprise, for at least 1-1:30 minutes I have lag. This is happening everytime just when I unlock my phone and immediately play the game from stand-by. This bug can be found also in this app, in which is really worse: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=shree.ganesh.mms.bhkr

Send some messages to a number. Then keep the conversation open, lock-unlock the phone and see what it happens. Try again if the bug doesn't appear. I tried to do a screenshot, but when I done it, the pic looked normal, without strange little white lines on entire screen that appears. Remember, I saw this bug espacially in these apps. I didn't have lag at all in any other apps. I have 2GB phone memory

Ever since the 4.4.4 update on my z1 phone ihavent been able to play my favourite game properly, Racing Rivals, it keeps crashing and I've spent a lot of real money on it, does the problem be with the game company Glu, or with this update

Recently done my update last week and since then, the battery of my Z1 drained at a very fast rate.  My friend has a Z3, he too experiencing the same issue.

Any fix for this issue?

Lock screen not locking with latest update

I've jsut done the last update and I cant remeber if this has changed but I'm finding it really annoying.  First of all using 'swipe' to unlock, then when locked if I touch the clock part whilst it's in my pocket it gives a little beep.  However, worse is that if you pull down from the top with the screen locked, then you can still get into the notifications and quick settings menu.  And then from there into any notifications.  So I've now started accidentally dialing anyone that's sent me a text as it pocket selects a text, then hols down on their number at the top of the text. 

 

If I put a pattern or other 'secure' lock screen I can stop this, but is there a way to:-

1) stop the beep/click on the lockscreen clock

2) not allow access to the notifications drop down when on swipe lock?

 

Thanks
