LT26i Issues and Suggestions

Well first of all I do like really to thank You Sony for this Awesome SmartPhone Truly worth of all the saving i paid for it
However, since i upgraded to ICS i have come through Several issues ( althought it fixed & improved alot more on GB)

Issues:
1- I cant seem to take "ScreenShots" anymore even using the short cut buttoms or holding the Power Bottom then choosing the ScreenShot option ( that was only avaible on GB)
2-When ever i access my Contacts or Phone, the Mobile device laggs and even takes 5~9 Sec to open the contacts and even longer to call

3- I cant seem to "STOP" my FB & Mail they always run in the background, and even after using ASTRO application killer to shut them down, they reopen automatically, is there anyway that i can shut them down when am not around a Wi-fi connection ?

Suggestions

1- I do really be very gratfull if you added a "Fast Forward" & "ReWind"  to the Video player, cuz its really a HUGE PAIN whenever i try to skip or rewind a specific Scene in clip that is longer than 30 Minutes ( thats cuz the seek bar isnt long enough)

2- can you add a preformance test Task to the next update, that can identify any issue my device is or will face ?

Thanks in Advance, and once more i do like to congratulate you in producing such great Device with that cheap price ( compared to iPhone4s and Galaxy SIII)

Re: LT26i Issues and Suggestions

These ain't even real problems.. Solution is simple:

1. Hold power and volume down at the same time. Thats how you do screen shots in ics.

2.contacts is indeed slow but takes normally 2 secs.or less. 5-9 is not normal. You should repair your phone.

3. To prevent apps fronm running permanently, there are 2 ways. One is to go to settings> apps> all then find the app and tap force close. If you close fb and mail under running apps or task managers such that in astro, it will restart.. So close it under apps>all. That should fix it. But take note that fb will restart once you connect to the internet again. Unless you close it while connected to the net.  But if you turn it off and on, then the app will restart. At least it permanently shuts it while you dont need it.

Another way is to disable it also under apps>all

Re: LT26i Issues and Suggestions

Hello everybody, I'm new here ...excuse my bad english but I have an suggestion for xperia s.

The illuminated bar timeout should be same as screen timeout..is very difficult to tap those 3 buttons in the dark because even the screen light is on, the illuminated bar turn off quicker.

I didn't find anywere in settings to set timout for illuminated bar...but it will be greate to have this option.

Thanks!
