Roll back to Oreo!

For first I answer on the typical questions:

+ Yes, I was reinstall software on Xpria Assistant with reset

+ I dont use any untypical apps or mods

+ I dont use any modifications, my bootloader is closed.

So, what is my expirience on Sony Android Pie :

1) Cellphone was have trouble with reboot 1 time

2) My screen didnt work afret update, I was maked agressive reset (vol + power) for fix it

3) Works slowly than Oreo

4) Camera app have too mutch agressive noise reduction

5) Autofocus makes many mistakes

6) Video recording is freeze, horrible stabilization quality (On Oreo it works amazing!)

7) Ugly design on notification bar, like KitKat chinise icon style

 

Sony, for what you did it, for what publish this ... for you fans??? In you'r company all use iphones?

XA2 H3123 got Pie. First impressions.

I received Pie on my XA2 H3123 yesterday. I have no problems for now. Everything is perfect. Battery life is very good. Even minor bugs are fixed like Smart lock blank screen. But there are missing features like dark theme. I have another phone with pure Android Pie and has dark theme. Still no AC3 audio support but this is Google's fault not Sony. No bluetooth icon at the top of the screen when bluetooth is on. After all i think Pie is awesome. Sony did their job perfectly.

Ok, just make 4 easy steps:

1) Open camera app

2) Set video to 4K and switch on steady shot, if it set off

3) Make video

4) watch what are you recorded

Are you satisfied this result? Looks smooth?

I would also add auto brightness to cause problems. The proximity sensor does not work well, the screen lights up on its own when the phone is near the ear. Crackle in wired headphones while listening to music. Hangs up the screen when installing applications from unknown sources.

Re: XA2 H3123 got Pie. First impressions.

IMartix i tried to record 4K video with steady shot on and off. If i am honest there is no much difference. The results are the same like with Oreo. I am not satisifed with steady shot feature. I checked the posted problems about the proximity sensor and crackle in wired headphones while listening to music and problems about the screen when installing applications from unknown sources. I don't have these problems. Maybe your problems are in the headphones, faulty cable or buggy music player. I listened songs with integrated Music app and Google play music app with no problems. I have no problems with the screen when installing applications from unknown sources. I installed MX player pro and Office suite with no problems BUT i noticed some old apk apps doesnt work at all. Maybe Pie doesn't support old apps.

Re: Roll back to Oreo!

When you exit sleep mode or when an incoming call, the screen brightness is at a minimum. The screen brightness changes randomly. It is impossible to make out who is calling. The performance of the phone has decreased. Especially noticeable on demanding games. To become slow. It works poorly, jerky scrolling in the browser and applications. Not hiding the navigation bar in full screen modes. Return the oreo. Android 9 painted sh1t ..., setting the phone's performance. I will write above if you do not correct
