Xperia so buggy

Re: Xperia so buggy

I managed to sort of fix my problem of the Dark Mode...

I enabled the developer mode and Night Mode was set to always off there! Sony, you need to fix this! The selection in the settings doesn't work with this set to Always Off in developer mode...

This turned some UI elements dark, like the Google search bar, notification drawer and overlay interface elements like the volume...

I also had to switch the keyboard mode to dark manually.

The app drawer and notifications are still white?! This needs to be dark, it's an oled screen for crying out loud. The battery live will be significantly longer if this is sorted.

Re: Xperia so buggy

Had same issue here and I'm on Vodafone

 

Solved it by going into apps

 Searching for Netflix, disabled updates and then reinstall from app store again.

Ok so it seem you guys having issues are on O2?

So am I, so let me try to install these apps and hopefully I can get it escalated and ultimately solved for you/us

Re: Xperia so buggy

If this is confirmed as working, is there any chance of pinning a solution to the Xperia 1 forum - otherwise I will go crazy with every O2 customer posting the same Netflix problem here 😲

It's pinned on the Netflix topic on this forum, and I have also posted the fix on the O2 community forum for any users who are on that forum.
