Disappointed with the Oreo software on my XZ!

Im so disappointed with Oreo. I wasn't expecting a lot more BUT I definitely wasn't expecting my phone to lag so much or for the apps to constantly crash in the background and when I'm actually using them. 

I hate the new settings layout ETC, ETC..... 😯😔

Agree. Everything becomes slow, even loading a page.

Yup, causes some issues for me too. Have you tried using the phones visual voicemail? Mine forces the phone services to crash if I tried to listen to my voicemail and will restart the network. It will eject the Sim and detect again. It's very annoying.

I think the update made my phone much smoother than it was on 7.1.1

Exactly the same. Some programs lag terribly and it definitely loses battery quicker. Wish I hadn't updated now.

Re: Disappointed with the Oreo software on my XZ!

On your home screen open the xperias phone shortcut and there should be 4 tabs. Starting on the left is fav contacts next is missed/received calls, contacts and then the finally on the very right is your visual voicemail tab. That is where your voicemails will go instead of holding the number 1 and calling your voicemail box, this is better but somehow the latest update is causing an issue with this useful feature of the phone and that is just one of many issues right now.
