Re: Accelerometer stops working

The problem still isn´t solved. Works for a couple of hours. It's ridiculous how long this have been going on. Regret buying this phone. Sony should be able to fix a problem like this way faster!

Re: Accelerometer stops working

Even with 297? You would be the first who still has this issue.

Re: Accelerometer stops working

Please read *sigh*

Temporary fix: disable Google location history
Permanent (?) fix: wait for new firmware 297

Re: Accelerometer stops working

For those who live in a restricted update country and still have this issue, disable google location history:

- The location history only records where you have been, as opposed to location services which is used by apps like Pokemon Go & Chrome & Maps to help you navigate places some more info can be found in an article by Alex Dobie at Android Central

This shouldnt be an issue if your Xperia build number is 297 check under:

Settings > About phone > Build number (last entry)

No issues for my phone for two days better battery life also.
