Is there a way to get new message/email / voicemail notifications to be displayed, either constant or intermittent, on the sleep screen?

Can anyone tell me by purchasing the XZ1 Compact, can I use the USB C to hardwire HDMI for watching film/TV. Not sure the displayport is enabled for this model?

You can use MyPhoneExplorer to sync with Outlook.

Re: Quick questions, quick replies; ask anything about the Xperia XZ1 Compact!

Hi,

 

Really love this Xperia XZ1 Compact, but a few things I would like to check out first before I'm making my decision:

 

1.  Does this device support VoLTE and VoWiFi?  Especially the VoLTE and VoWiFi provided by DiGi in Malaysia?

 

2.  Does this device support Shutdown Alarm?  Meaning the alarm will still goes off even if the device is power off?

 

3.  Does this device have Scheduled Power On/Off?  Meaning that I can schedule a time for the device to be automatically power off daily?

 

My last Sony phone was a Xperia Z3 Compact, which do not have these features and that's the main reasons why I moved away from Sony.....

Re: Quick questions, quick replies; ask anything about the Xperia XZ1 Compact!

Hi, just unboxed my new xz1 compact after using the Z5 for over 2 years. I cant believe the quality of this phones screen 😐 can someone help explain if this is just mine or just what to expect. A lot of images, especially on insta are laggy and you can make out the pixels, not what i expect from the NEW sony XZ1 compact. On youtube, all the video are laggy in the pic and take a moment to 'compose' hoping some one can explain this. 

Thanks P.

Re: Quick questions, quick replies; ask anything about the Xperia XZ1 Compact!

I bought my XZ1 compact from Best Buy back in October. I use my phone on T-Mobile here in NYC. My phone is still on August security patch. I still don't have the camera distortion fix. Finally, my Bluetooth issues have not been resolved.  What gives? Please do not give the me standard "we can't comment on release schedules for updates" response. I'm on the verge of just selling the phone because it doesn't seem that Xperia Mobile USA cares about software updates for their user base in the United States.
