Re: Please vote for smart double tap wake screen

I had face the same problem with you also, my z3 compact turn on the flash light, draining my phone battery. Like Xz1c said, l which what I do also, just don't face the screen to your leg will be no problem.

 

I agree that double tap sometimes it made trouble, but it also help me alot also. Actually my z3c smart double tap are able to enable or disable. I think should let user choose to enable or disable but not remove it ... cause there alot of people still happy with smart double tap....

Re: Please vote for smart double tap wake screen

I love my z3c until the top screen touch stop working, it is very nice to have phone,

-Fm radio

-Double tap to wake

-flashlight using camera

-usb mass storage(sd card)

-magnetic dock

-4g only

 

What i was expecting when the z5, xc, or xz1 launch was

-double tap to wake with proximity(unfortunately sony's proximity is using much more battery)

-magentic or wireless charging

-better screen accuracy

-more voltage for headphone

-customizable vibration

-dual sim

Buyer beware - NO FM Radio

Found out the hard way that the XZ compact does not have a FM radio, Why the heck not its not a big chip! The reason I chose the compact was I did not want a huge phone, even the compact is a bit big! compared to my old st18i which was a great little phone and had a radio!

Hi @Ian_Mac

 

Welcome to the community! 

 

I'm sorry to hear you are disappointed with the device due to this Slightly frowning Face

 

Have you tried downloading an FM Radio from the Play Store instead? 

 

Let me know Slightly smiling Face

Re: Double tap to wake

What a shame. One of the most outstanding functions gone. Really thinking to roll back to Z5 compact, which is such a great buddy…

Typical Sony.

Sony PlayStation 4 (every version) cant read CDs no Audio, no PlayStation 1 nothing only dvds and Blu-ray (but no uhd...). Complete nonsense.

FM Radio

I've been a avid user of Sony and Sony Ericsson phones for twenty years and every one has had a buit-in radio. The latest phones been removed. Very disappointed now I have to use an app that eats data and worst of all my battery extremely quick as its constantly using the Web.
