Re: What Suggestion You Want to Tell To Sony(POST HERE){SONY MUST SEE THIS}[SUGGESTIONS]

Hi,

my first Android tablet was (and still is...) a tablet S I bought relying on Sony's fame and tradition for good and well designed products. I already owned Sony Tv's, audio devices and so on. Sony did not disappoint me this time as well, with some neat touches as good design, bright screen and excellent audio output.

 

Last December I decided for a substitute to the old S, and the new Z4 was the natural candidate. I give much importance to audiophile abilities and reviews showed that the Z4 was above the average in audio treatment.

Actually, I am quite disappointed by the audio output level of the headphones connection.

Quality is very good, but the old S has much more oomph! I am obviously making this comparison using the same headphones and the same music files for both tablets.

I read many posts complaining the same issue on different RECENT Sony tablets and smartphones, therefore

 

MY SUGGESTION is:

please fix this annoying problem and let us Customers decide on our own about sound volume, OR give us some software settings to do it on a file or playlist basis, e.g. like ITunes file gain level setting.

 

And, please, less bloatware. Sometimes Sony proprietary software does not add any new feature to the plain Google Android set, and some pre-installed apps are half-working unless you pay for them. I am referring to MS Office but especially to apps like File Commander, which I could not uninstall, If I wanted to.

 

I know Sony is able to give us something like IMovie (or better) and this is what I want from Sony ;-)

 

edit: it seems like with marshmallow we are able to get rid of most unwanted apps. Thanks Sony, thanks Google....

 

_____________________________________________
Please Sony give us 'User-configurable maximum volume limit' on your Xperia devices. Now output volume is so low it's annoying. Childish. Amateurish. Un-Sony.

Re: What Suggestion You Want to Tell To Sony(POST HERE){SONY MUST SEE THIS}[SUGGESTIONS]

Dear sir

              I am a old user of Sony & I love Sony, I am from Pakistan, but one thing is a big issue that Why Sony is not advertise it's CellPhone Products in Pakistan. I don't know about any other users of Sony but I am feeling very bad and so sad that Sony has no value in Pakistan and it's a big loss of Sony. And I am requesting to Sony dealer that please think about this suggestion and Advertise your Your Cellphone products in Pakistan for Sony Marketing. Like Samsung, Lenovo, IPhone and many other cellphone Companies. I just suggesting to Sony Kindly think about it.

 

Thank You.

Re: What Suggestion You Want to Tell To Sony(POST HERE){SONY MUST SEE THIS}[SUGGESTIONS]

I would like Camera Software addons, not like redesign but to put in extra features and options, like burst mode, zero shutter lag, full manual settings (much like huawei or LG) even for video, ability to focus on something after starting to record video and manual settings control also after push to record, at least for focus and exposure compensation, the rest would be bonus.
Its part where Sony falls behind the most since UI solutions are great and it is well optimized with features that are most used, but not overcramped with features that get rarely used. Except Multiwindow support, that should be part of update also...

Re: What Suggestion You Want to Tell To Sony(POST HERE){SONY MUST SEE THIS}[SUGGESTIONS]

I wonder if Sony will read this? Anyway, I have the Z3 with android 4.4.4 and here's my feedback:
1. the phone is very slippery and difficult to hold, just days after I bought it slided like a wet soap from were I put it and down to the floor, got a knock on the earphone plug so it couldn't be used anymore. Sony please stop making slippery phones that slides and fall down to the floor and break.
2. My Z3 has rounded sides making it difficult to hold. One have to be carefull to put the fingers exactly in the middle to not loose the grip and drop the phone. Sony please make the sides straight and easy to hold.
3. I envy the owners of Samsung Note series for the stylus allways at hand and with that fine tip. My stulys has a big and clumsy tip and I seldom have it at hand when I need it. Sony please make a flagship version with a stylus, like the Note.
4. I don't understand why all smartphone have to get thinner and thinner with each succeeding model? I think my Z3 is just fine as it is, I don't need or want it to be thinner, what would be the point? Instead it's just annoying to think of the technical sacrifices that has to be made to cut off that 1 mm in thickness on each new model. Would be better to INCREASE the thickness with a few mm and put in more tech!
5. One annoying detail in the camera software is the innability to name the photos and videos taken by the phone. I could do it with my old Samsung S2 so why can't I do it on my Sony Z3? How hard can it be to fix this? I want to name my photos in the camera app as well as in the album.
6. This thread should really have been started by Sony instead. And they should give some feedback so we knew they were actually reading our point of views. A smartphone developer that actually LISTENED to it's customers and ASKED for their oppinions and whishes would surely get a lot of good ideas for the next model.

I wish, oh I wish that Sony will restore the US online store and give more visibility to their products in all North America.
