Xperia™ SP - eCompass™

The white paper mentions that the Xperia SP phone has no magnetometer, however, says he has eCompass.

Xperia™ SP have magnetometer or not?

jluisfa:

 

As latest version (august 2013 rev.) of whitepaper says, all versions of SP (C5302, C5303 and C5306) really have magnetometer. Download it again and you'll see :smileysmileywink: Try it here.

Or try some of "sensor tester" applications from Google Play... If you already have SP, of course Slightly smiling Face

 

I know, previous version of whitepaper denied this sensor...

Re: Xperia™ SP - eCompass™

Did the compass test in the service menu. The reading stays nearly solid between 350 and 360. Calibration does change the reading but not the sensitivity of the sensor. It's stuck.
