Re: Updates

Hello @Evi123 and welcome to the community! 

 

Yes, this should be normal. Xperia X performance is a 2016 phone and a lot of updates have been released for it since then. Using software update will get you those updates one by one. 

 

If you want to update your phone in one go, I'd suggest that you perform a software repair using Xperia Companion. This will do a clean installation of the latest firmware and will also wipe your internal memory. Don't forget to backup using Xperia Companion, but preferably without adding apps or settings to the backup.

 

Follow the steps given in blue links, and keep us updated.

Re: Updates

I had four updates in the last few weeks too, first to 7.0 (two) then 7.1.1 (two). I am speculating the 2nd one in both cases was a patch to apply US restrictions. Knowing what I know now, I would have left the phone at 6.0.1: I had the PHENOMENAL battery life + the fingerprint sensor. Both are gone with 7.1.1.

Re: Updates

Ya - Updates are like "bait and switch".  You buy one thing and then they change their mind.  Should be illegal IMO.
