That's because I made a mistake above, you shouldn't have Bravia Engine or Bravia Engine 2, you should have X-Reality which its far better than BE and BE2

Re: how to disable preview of sms

Messaging app > menu > settings > Notifications 

 

keep in mind if you uncheck that, the LED notification wont flash, and the only way to know that you have a message is by checking the messaing app icon. 

 

OR

 

you can download a different messaging app 

 

 

2. there are apps on the market that will turn on your phone if you shake it, other than that there isn't unless you connect the phone to the charger

Re: how to disable preview of sms

1. Notifications (the first option), you will have to look for apps on the play store, perhaps handcent or GO sms

 

3. Settings > display > bravia Engine 2

 

4. you have to try different camera settings to get the best out of it.
