I don't doubt that it will come back, 3rd day now it's still not there YET. I bought the Z2 brand new and never had a problem so upgraded to the XZ1 just last week because of the confidence I have in Sony, very disappointing discovering all the little glitches this system has.

Still love Sony though and I'm sure they will get everything sorted sooner or later, I had great first impressions out of the box and still love the phone very much. Can only get better when the clever poeple grasp Oreo.

Oh good, another fault I hadn't noticed! Mine does the same thing.

 

Also, GPS works fine with google maps and shows the correct location...until I plug it in to my Android Auto car. Then it doesn't know where I am. Is this related?

after update to 12.75, I can feel the electromagnet wave with my hands is stronger,  and power drain faster.  Also the gps icon problem,  no way to clear it unless reboot.

Hi to all

 

After latest update with March security patches, on my italian XZ1 the issue is fixed and solved.

Remain other little problems, like system sound stop working after calls, but this one is solved for me.
