Re: lollipop issues on my ZR?

We have found the cause of the LED strip not working in Album and it will be fixed in an upcoming software update for the phone.

1. could you elaborate? 

 

2. the walkman/music app has a preset color

 

It'll be wise to contact your local Xperia care

 since the ZR it's quite similar to the Z and ZL perhaps Sony developers forgot or discarded such feature.

Elaborated way..
1) In Xperia ZR, when you're viewing a picture in album app, the led strip below the display glows according to the primary colour of the picture that I'm viewing, just like Xperia SP, but after updating to lollipop, it's not lighting up in album app. I couldn't find its options in settings->display too.
2) in walkman, the colour of the background changes to the primary colour of the album art, but now the background is just violet, see attached picture..

Another thing i found out is that the xLoud is missing.. Has Sony removed it in lollipop?

But if sony discarded that feature, then the illumination bar wouldn't work even in walkman right? But it glows in violet whenever i change any track just like in kitkat..

Re: lollipop issues on my ZR?

@uliwooly I think it's a bug in lollipop.. Even other people are experiencing the above mentioned issues..

So, if possible, report these to the Sony people. 

Thank you for your replies Slightly smiling Face

Re: lollipop issues on my ZR?

Can you also check that you have the latest version of our Album application installed? You can find it here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sonyericsson.album

If updating album doesn't help, could you please send me a PM with the IMEI of your phone and the buildnumber you have under Settings -> About phone?

xLOUD has been integrated into ClearAudio+ so you need to enable this to enable xLOUD.
