Re: What would you like to know about Xperia Z1 Compact?

Hi Guys

 

My question is, just out of curiosity, is it possible to listen to music (jack plugged in, earplugs out of water) while the phone is under water? 

 

Cheers,

blick

 

PS: Just got this phone, fantastic, great job SONY!

Re: What would you like to know about Xperia Z1 Compact?

How hot does this device get in related to Z1 in normal usage?

 

Because with Z1 there're plenty of users complaning about it getting hot really fast? http://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia-Z1-Z1s/getting-hot-quickly/td-p/392245

 

Is there a way to set the max cpu freq.? (so one can avoid it getting too hot, while just browsing for example)

 

Are the cover glasses made from the same material as for the Z1?

Phones will get hot, the more you do with the phone the hotter and faster it will get, the heavier the app /game etc the hotter and faster it will get, that goes for background apps and network coverage, its normal. As for the other question you will have to root your phone and overclock the CPUs but this is not recommended, you might burn it down

If you install the phone in a magnetic charging dock DK32, the magnetometer in this phone will transmit false testimony?
If Yes, this will be one-time errors or magnetometer will be deteriorated with time?

It not that the phone shuts down the USB-port while charging via the magnetic connector. Its just that you cant connect the USB cable while docked because it wont fit.

 

We can't put everything that can't be done in the users guide.

Yes the magnetometer will give you other values while docked. So I don't suggest using any function related to the magnetometer while docked.

Re: What would you like to know about Xperia Z1 Compact?

Thanks for your Answers Mr. Johan....

 

Now regarding my question about Docking + microUSB use...

 

Would an "L" shape USB cable for USB Host or an "L" shape MHL cable would be enough to be able to plug it while charging...

 

I know the solution would be to raise the dock on top of a book or something but, as it is, how much is the clearance between the microUSB port and the surface underneath?
