Differences XZ2 Compact and Z3 Compact

1. Different clock functions. I want to get the clock-app from Z3 Compact

2. Ringtones: I want to get my old ringtones!

3. Bluetooth sign: there is no sign at the display when I activate Bluetooth!?

 

What I have to do?

Re: Differences XZ2 Compact and Z3 Compact

Hi,

The difference is Android 7 and Android 9

'The only thing that is constant is change'

 

You cannot access the default ringtones unless your device is rooted.

New rintones can be added to the /ringtones directory.

 

Bluetooth sign, mostly absent, in some situations present.

It is like it is.

You can blame Google developpers.

New or different doesn't always  implicate better.

Re: Differences XZ2 Compact and Z3 Compact

What a happiness

- the clock app of Z3 Compact/Z5 Compact is so much better (detailed adjustments with bell clock)

- I had my ringtones and everytime with a new smartphone I have to take a new ringtone

- I want to see a bluetooth connection

At least they can't read German Smiling Face with open Mouth & Smiling Eyes

 

I mean: the filter doesn't filter German.

Re: Differences XZ2 Compact and Z3 Compact

Hi @Forumsmitglied, welcome to our forum! Slightly smiling Face

As @Strampke wrote, some devices have specific ringtones that are not transferable to a new device as they are specific for that device/series of devices, this also applies for pre-installed system applications, such as the clock.

For the clock application, you can always take a look in the Google Play store and see if there is any clock application that suits you better.

In Android Pie, sometimes, a Bluetooth icon will be shown in the status bar if you connect a Bluetooth accessory to your device. Other times, the icon will not appear. It depends on the accessory and supporting app.

I hope that answers your questions! Slightly smiling Face
