Upgrade Android 9 screwed up XZ Premium

My previous thread was deleted without any solution****

Am writing this review after 5 Months of usage, There are lot of below things are missing after Pie upgrade :




Most important MISSING items***


  • Camera Pro mode.
  • Low light (After 9 it is very worst, More worst duing low light, It was better on 8).
  • Double Tap Display ON/OFF (Now every time we need to press the power button to wakeup the screen).
    1. Xperia Keyboard
    2. Display mode change (resolution change)
    3. Font size settings is no use here, Even small size looking bigger.
    4. Xperia Dialer
    5. Xperia Contacts
    6. Xperia Calender

    Xperia Keyboard,Dialer, Contacts & Calender was really far better compare to Google items.


  • Low and worst quality volume in Loudspeakers (No bass & no louder, it was osm on 8 version).
  • Battery drains like anything (Checked consuming apps only whatsapp is lying der, Screen brightness will be 10% max always- after 9 upgrade).
  • Less tweaks
  • Low light slowmotion Completely useless after 9  upgrade, and during night you can't even see anything it's completly dark.

Good Ones :


  • 4k Display (But 4k recording is worst lot of noise if you record).
  • Build quality,
  • Performance.


Overall it gives me the feel of holding less than 10k mobile. Even 10k Mobiles has all the tweaks and extra options.


Totally disappointed with Xperia XZ Premium and there is no use of buying high budget mobiles.
