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....

I love my z3c until the top screen touch stop working, it is very nice to have phone,
-Double tap to wake
-flashlight using camera
-usb mass storage(sd card)
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

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!

Welcome to the community!
I'm sorry to hear you are disappointed with the device due to this
Have you tried downloading an FM Radio from the Play Store instead?
Let me know

I just switched from my Z5 compact to a XZ1 compact and cannot find the double tap feature anymore. Can not be true Sony left this phantastic feature out ?

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

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

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.
