Re: Countdown function

The countdown mini app works normaly. Seems even odder. 


The set time dialogue is the same. When i use the mini app the sound works normaly but the screen stays locked. When I use the normal one the opposite...


Thank you guys,


I would still need to fix it. It bothers me. And I a brand new unit...

Re: Countdown function

The battery will drain faster the first few days, but it will be ok after, a suggestion, update to lollipop and then re-install it, it smooth things out faster

Re: Countdown function

I tested more and the issue appears only when the screen is locked and inactive. If I touch power button and do not unlock the screen the app will function normally.

Re: Countdown function

I went to Sony shop and had the phone examined by a technician who confirmed is a 4.4.4 bug for this model and "warmly" advised to upgrade to 5.0.2.

Lollipop is still love hate so if the battery life is an issue I'll skip it for now.

I really appreciate your input guys!
