Hi, following the recent software update, my volume button alters the media volume rather than the ringtone volume by default. Any way of changing it back to ringtone volume please?

EDIT: Oh, another question. Is there any way to see the battery temperature in this phone - you know, like an inbuilt feature? I downloaded a free app for it, but it was a huge battery hog (lost 25% of battery in four hours without even touching the phone) - I had to uninstall it since it was awful. My phone sometimes gets pretty hot and I'd love to see its temperature when it does.


Go to Settings, scroll down to bottom, select "Support", click on "Battery", you'll see the charge level and the temperature too.

 

About updates: avoid 47.2.A.6.30, that version broke my NFC completely, since I installed Android Pie I can't use NFC. Sony technical support asked me to send back the phone to them for repair (however it's clearly a software issue, NFC was just working absolutely fine with Oreo; it's Sony's Android Pie update that rendered the NFC feature void).

I'm trying to set up the Sony Music app to play music stored on Google Drive. I'm logged in to Drive, but I get the message "No music in folder". Does anyone know of a way to manually point the app to the folders where the music is stored? Alternatively, can anyone recommend an Android music player that works well with Google Drive?

I'm sorry but this is actually the new way of implementing volume controls in Android Pie. IMO this is absolutely silly but there's no way to do otherwise without rooting the device or buying some app to remap the buttons...

Hi there

Help please, I can't seem to find a way to move any apps to the micro  SD card, no option given to format the card a different way either

Hello,

Did you find some way to save RAW photos?

Also I have been sad when I saw 1 second max of the shutter time.
