Font size on homescreen becomes bigger.

I have some bug. It's not critical, but annoying. This bug appears after this steps:

1) lock the screen of phone

2) open camera with 'camera button'

3) wait a little bit and press 'home button'

4) unlock screen (e.g. with fingerprint)

5) now font size of icons on homescreen is bigger than it should be. Go to homescreen settings (press and hold) and go back  to reset font size.

 

I have xperia X dual F5122, 34.0.A.2.292.

Thanks.

 

UPD. This bug shows at Xperia Z3 Compact D5803, android 6.0.1, 23.5.A.1.291. So, it's bug of 'Xperia Home'. Please, move this post to 'xperia home' branch, if it's possible.

Re: Font size on homescreen becomes bigger.

Hi all,

 

Could anyone of you recreate this and then take a bug report? If you then send it to me I can forward it for investigation.

 

To do this:

  1. Go to Settings > About phone > Build number, tap 7 times on the build number.
  2. Go back and select Developer options then turn on "USB debugging".
  3. Select Logger buffer size and change it to "4 M"
  4. Restart your phone, then replicate this
  5. Go back to Settings > Developer options, select "Take bug report".

When the report is ready you will receive a notification. Tap the notification to share it. I suggest you upload it to Google Drive and then choose to share a public link to the upload and include the link in the PM.

Font Enlarging

My Xperia Z2 started enlarging the home screen font lately, not sure why but it showed up only about a month ago. Is anyone familiar with this problem? Thanks
