The disadvantages of the update :


1- No Flash for front camera

( flash light, like in XZ1 / iPhone 7,8,X ) 

 

2- Still Not supported font style 

Currently supported in:
Samsung - LG - HTC - Huawei - Lenovo - Asus - oppo - Xiaomi - One Plus

( All of these 9 companies ) They support font style support without Root and Sony still ( Available only in Japanese software) , this is big shame !!!

 

3- Still no more " Ambient Display " 

Not need for OLED display 

 

4- The themes now not applying for some apps

( setting, Clock ) Sony will kill this feture

 

5- Still no adaptive icons ( calender / o'clock )


 

Hi,

I think support for font style will arrive shortly. I see an apk by Sony called "Font Selector" in apkmirror. Check here

Sony need to edit the framework "System Ui" to working fine.

Re: Android Oreo 8.0 update, another bug - Incoming calls screen

What about the feature that turns on Wi-Fi automatically based on your location? This was a great feature way back on my Xperia Z3, and then Sony just killed it for some unknown reason.

 

Check number 6:

Auto-enable Wi-Fi

A clever, new feature will automatically turn your phone’s Wi-Fi back on based on your location. This way, your phone can connect to your home network when you arrive, saving you from any fiddling with the device.

To enable this feature, go to Network and Internet > WiFi > WiFi Preferences. Then toggle on the setting. Your phone will then use its location knowledge to reconnect to networks like your home Wi-fi. It’s a clever way to save on data usage and use the phone’s internal smarts without flipping the Wi-Fi on and off.

 

This update indeed lacks TONS of stuff which was originally advertised. The 3D scanner is the only major thing that I have noticed so far.... 1.2GB of nothingness....

Re: Android Oreo 8.0 update, another bug - Incoming calls screen

But the thing is why would Xperia xz1 be privileged for the new dialer ui and stuffs like those. Why can't the last year's flagship atleast get the UI changes. Why would Xperia XZ and XZP users be deprived of the changes though being upgraded to Android O. I believe Sony cares for user experience, but why not give those little changes. We are not requesting for a feature that the hardware doesnt support, are we! These are small things... A little work on the XZ1 phone apk so that it fits the XZ. And as we saw from XDA community, it does support on Xperia XZ without root or anything, just a regular installation works. Then why not as an official update!
