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

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

Hi @XepptizZ, I know that Ingress Protection ratings sometimes may be a bit confusing. The reason for specifying both IPX5 and IPX8 is that the tests for these ratings differ, and being protected against one does not automatically make the device resistant towards the other. For example, a device may be protected from immersion (for this example, IPX8) but not be protected against low-pressure water jet spray (IPX5), and in that case we can't specify the device as such - and vise versa. 

To summarize, IPX5 means that the device is protected against low-pressure water jet spray for at least 3 minutes, while the IPX8 means that the device is protected against the effects of continued immersion in water at depths greater than 1 metre. 

Let me know if that helps clear things up! Slightly smiling Face

Thank you, that's very reassuring Slightly smiling Face I have seen some sites only noting the IP65 rating which had me worried.

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

Is there a USB type C to HDMI adapter so I can screen mirror to my TV?

I don't want to use the wifi feature in this case because I'll be moving out of my apartment soon and don't feel the need to buy internet.

@Ibbo those settings depend on your carrier. if you go to Settings > Wireless & networks > More > Internet settings > Accept, the phone should download proper settings for your carrier.

Wonky Bluetooth

I've had my XZ1 for a week now. Twice Bluetooth has crashed, coming back up after a phone reset. It has paired well with everything I need it to. However.... in my car it's gone from displaying all my received, dialled and missed calls to stating no numbers available. The phone book is still available and working. I have checked my connection settings for that device and contact sharing is checked. Any ideas welcome.

Can't be sure, but I think the phone has done a restart on it's own in the car.

 

Please help! Apart from this issue, I love my XZ1.

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

I have a question about the most painful problem in xperia. How many years must pass, that on xperia will be have better photos, than competitors? My grandchildren will see this, or they are also doomed to see the neverending shame that we have been seeing since 2013 to this day ...?Face with Steam from Nose
