Re: X-Reality for Mobile functions

X-Reality for Mobile will not work for 3:rd party apps. It only works for our apps.

The information i have is that it works for pictures and videos displayed in our media apps (for example Album and Movies/Video) and that it's not active for the normal menus.

Re: X-Reality for Mobile functions

I sense the difference in fullscreen photos and videos only, but this is just an observation not a definite information.

That's correct

Sony's X-Reality™ for mobile technology improves the viewing quality of photos and videos after you take them, giving you clearer, sharper and more natural images. X-Reality™ for mobile is turned on by default, but you can turn it off if you want to reduce battery consumption.

Re: X-Reality for Mobile functions

So, in conclusion, there are not differences in the home screens and drawer using X-reality for Mobile or not?

 

And the contrast, how functions on Xperia Z2? It is increased with X-Reality for Mobile or not (in ALL screens)?

 

Thanks!

Only using the album and video apps. Not on any other window nor app. The X-reality will work on the homescreen but might not work with all third party apps.

 

You can test it quite simple

 

take a screenshot with X-reality on > turn off X-reality > take another screenshot of the same page/app, compare them.

Re: X-Reality for Mobile functions

Hi Uliwooly,

 

Your correction say that the X-Reality for Mobile (and the Super Vivid Mode) works with the Album and Video apps and with the homescreens and drawer of the Xperia devices?

 

With the other apps can works but you are not sure?

 

Please, for me and other users, can give a complete answer of this technology of Sony?

It's important for us to know how and with apps and screens it works!

 

Thank a lot!

Re: X-Reality for Mobile functions

I tried openning the same photo with Album and Pixlr, yet I noticed image enhancement on Album app only. Seems like X-reality works with Sony apps (and may be with other apps that Sony has granted utilizing the technology).

I agree with @Quester  it works fine with Sony apps, but not with third parties, I think @Rickard  could elaborate on this.
