Re: Accelerometer stops working

I'm also having the same issue. 

Mostly I notice it when taking a photo, the rotation is incorrect. 

Before it happened like once in a while but now it seems like a daily issue. 

Very annoying since my photos are in a wrong position and by the time the phone is restarted, the photo moment is gone

 

My build: 35.0.A.1.275

Re: Accelerometer stops working

I have the same problem with the newer build... (282)

Never had any problem before. The gyroscope working properly but the accelerometer stops working..

After restarting it's all normal again.

I'm not installing any new apps...

Accelerometer and Gyroscope failure

Hi guys,

 

My Xperia X Performance (bought in Hong Kong) suffers continuous failure of both gyroscope and accelerometer function.

I notice it when trying to use the camera, then I perform a test confirming both accelerometer and gyroscope are not working.

After reboot is fine, but it is quite annoying doing so.
It is the F8132, Android 6.0.1, Build: 35.0.A.1.282...
I am trying by progressively uninstalling apps ...but I have seen at least one guy here who has similar problem (gyroscope only) without having installed new apps.

So, any suggestion?

Thanks
Regards

Re: Accelerometer and Gyroscope failure

Test your phone in >>> safe mode for few hours, see if you experience the same issue, if you don't then it's a third party app causing this.

Why is the phone that Sony called "flagman" have such issue long time?

Amazing
