Hi @realpp,

 

That is your phones model number and it cannot be changed. I hope this answers your question. Slightly smiling Face

Re: how to change phone name G8342

@realpp do you want to change the name your phone is visible under when connecting via Bluetooth? if that's what you mean, go to Settings > Bluetooth, turn it on, then tap on the three dots in the top right corner and select Rename this device.

 

also, what file names do you want to change?

Re: how to change phone name G8342

@realpp, I'm not quite sure I understand your question. Your device is still called Xperia XZ1 but its model number is G8342. Resetting the device will not change this.
