Re: Accelerometer stops working

Same problem here with a Xperia X performance (F8131). The rotate function does not works after a while and the only way to get it back for a few minutes is to reboot the phone. The phone was bought in Spain.
It is very frustrating and I am dissapointed.
If it is not fixed really quick I will not buy Sony in the future for sure.

Re: Accelerometer stops working

Saw in the topic header that the issue was solved.

Does this mean that the patch / update has been released?

Re: Accelerometer stops working

Mine happens at two times:

 

1. When using YouTube, if I go to a fullscreen video, my phone will remain in landscape mode until I turn the screen off (I don't have to do a full reboot).

 

2. After using the camera app.

 

Also, is everyone still having touchscreen accuracy issues? Especially an extra space after typing a later in any keyboard (I use the Sony/Xperia keyboard, but even if I switch to Swift Key or Google's keyboards, it still happens).

 

I'm using a 64GB Hong Kong dual-sim version of the X Performance (with awesome fingerprint sensor!).

Re: Accelerometer stops working

As others have posted, I disabled the Google App and restarted the phone. Did this yesterday and the phone is working normal which is great. Usually rotate will stop working in less than an hour.

 

I didn't go through the other steps of deleting my account etc. I just re-enabled it now and it did an update. I'll see if the rotate problem comes back.
