Re: Problems after XZ update to android 8.0 oreo!!!

Bought a XZ1 compact and sold it a week later. Oreo 8 was terrible on it. Why release a new flasgship Sony Phone with a buggy OS on it? What are these people thinking? So I bought an Iphone

Re: Problems after XZ update to android 8.0 oreo!!!

In my opinion Sony is actually the best company, which take care of users and their OS is really smooth and stable. Of course, there are some issues with Oreo version, and I hope that Sony will fix it soon. Somewhere I read, that someone had the same issue as me, but he had an issue with the car-sound system, so maybe it will be fix. I must say, that Oreo is really good update, only this Bluetooth makes me sad, because I want to play my favourite music on my HiFi system Slightly frowning Face

The bluetooth issue can be solved most of the time by unpairing and then  pair it to the device again   as it might be seeing it as a new device

I know about it, but it didn't solve it. I tried it many times, but nothing has changed. On 7.1.1 Nougat everything worked excellent. But, Thanks for your response! Slightly smiling Face

After the second update 41.3.a.2.24 everything except the alarm and sometimes the camera, is working properly. Battery, apps, speed issues are solved.

My Xperia XZ was completely unusable after Oreo update. 

I think Xperia Home + Google home were using too much RAM.

I installed Nova Launcher and now the phone runs smoothly, like brand new. 

I hope this helps others with same issues.

I am about ready to give up on this phone. I've had all the problems you're having except the heating one and now my screen just constantly dims then gets brighter then dims and gets brighter. If you switch adaptive lighting off then you can't see it if you're outside. I've reset the whole phone but I'm tempted just to throw it at the wall most of the time at the moment!

Hi m8. Can I ask you if you managed to get your issues with the phone sorted? If so can I ask you what you did to rectify things rather than searching here there & everywhere as my issues are almost exactly the same as yours. I've got the xz premium. Thanks.

Re: Problems after 8.0 oreo update !!!

Translation via Google Translate:

Hello after the last update, the volume of the phone is very low, so much so that if I call with the loudspeaker it sounds the same as talking with the phone in my ear. The music sounds very low, it gets hot, the battery wear is extremely fast without hardly using the phone. Please fix these problems because it is a pity that after an update come back with these problems while before the phone was great.

 

Hola despues de la ultima actualizacion el volumen del telefono es bajisimo, tanto que si llamo con el altavoz suena igual que hablar con el  telefono en la oreja. La musica suena bajisimo tamb, se calienta, el desgaste de la bateria es extremadamente rapido sin apenas usar el movil. Por favor arreglen estos problemas porque es una pena que despues de una actualizacion vuelvan con estos problemas mientras que antes iva genial el telefonl.
