Re: API2 Camera

I contacted with Sony, "They don't know nothing about future of software or development"

Other company are using this API on his phones, and Sony are relegating us to use a older software when we could be using the newst, and this can't happens on a "flagship" model if you paid 700€ for the mobile.

After upgrade no more able to close all opened apps in background. Have to close one by one like in Nexus 5. Please fix it like it was before and add close all button.

Re: Starting our Android 5.0, Lollipop rollout: Xperia Z3 & Xperia Z3 Compact

I miss the screen sparkle and the clock function when setting my alarm clock is weird. Both mine and my partners phone got quite hot across the back.of the phone whilst running the update. Afterwards my camera settings had gone back to their default settings so i had to change them all again which is fine,just annoying. But the screen sparkle was nice,girly but nice So i would like that back. I like the new icons though and things do seem to be running quicker.

Re: Starting our Android 5.0, Lollipop rollout: Xperia Z3 & Xperia Z3 Compact

mikel76, do u noe u can't see photo taken in RAW mode on your mobile phone? And on top of that, u need a PC software to enhance the RAW pictures? What's the use of having a function with no practical usage on ur current phone? Plus ur assumption all other manufacturers have RAW capabilities is misleading - www.phonearena.com/news/Samsung-Galaxy-S6-and-HTC-One-M9-early-units-do-not-support-full-Android-Lol...

Xperia Z3 Android 5.0

Hello,

 

after installing the newest version of android, there seem to be some changes in my mobile which i dont like. I hope you can help me.

 

1. Lock Screen: I am using a password to secure my phone. Usually, after pushing the button on the right, I could directly type in my password. Now I need to   swipe on screen, before beeing able to typ it in.

 

2. During lock screen, I was able to go back and forward in my songlist. I can only go forward now.

 

3. I can not stop all rinning apps at the same time anymore

 

4.. Batterylife seems to be suffering a bit.

 

5. When I close my browser it does also close all the taps running before. When starting my browser againm, things I may have been searching before, are gone.

 

 

I bet some of these things are just settings, but infortunatelly, I cant find them. I hope you can help me.

 

King regards

Ugly and big icons after 5.0.2 update

I have discovered some issues with lollipop update on Z1,

1. The icons have become ungainly big and ugly.

2. The widgets for wifi/airplane mode/mobile data have been taken off.

3. The themes don't really do anything much. The colour of the toggle buttons/ volume bars doesn't sync up well with the themes.

 

The phone has lost the "business phone" look after this update.
