The thing is it doesnt always happen so its very hard to replicate the issue. Its not conistent therefore I cannot prove to the store its faulty.

Very tricky situation!

Hi everyone,

 

Thank you all for highlighting this. I received information today that this will be fixed in a later software version.

 

I'm sorry for any inconvenience this causes until then.

So it is a software issue, I was about to start a claim for replacement. At first I thought it was the app I was using but all video playback apps I used even the stock video app show a white flash every few seconds during playback right at the corner under the notification light.

Still getting this, and its becoming more frequent.

 

Anyone else manage to find a fix or is it hardware related?

It's software and the devs have found the issue and are fixing in a upcoming firmware update.

Video playback flash occuring?

Video playback flash occuring

When playing any video on the xperia xz premium (in landscape mode) e/g: YouTube, video app or WhatsApp video, there is a small flash that occurs at the bottom left hand side of the phone? It occurs randomly, flashes for about 0.5secs. Does not affect the video playback or quality. But it is annoying as it catches the corner of your eye when viewing. 

Anyone else experiencing this?

Re: Video playback flash occuring?

I have the issue as well, I wonder what is the cause. It seems stupid that it is flashing itself in a very specific way and only when watching videos. 

 

Any clues on the reason? 

I doubt anh other manufacturer have had this odd issue.
