Re: Z5 Premium got too dim on sunlight viewing - Overheating?

I´m also having this problems, It is impossible to use the phone outdoors in summer time.

You are not able to see anything in the screen.

 

I am also quite upset because of overheating problems, the phone gets quite quite hot. For instance, you can only record short videos in summer.

Still no fix on this annoying issue???

I got the nougat update hoping Sony would have resolved this issue but now its getting really annoying!!

I need this phone hacked or cracked to stop this crazy auto dim feature from working in direct sunlight.

Re: Z5 Premium got too dim on sunlight viewing - Overheating?

The reason Sony will not reply is because this is not a bug or fault. My z5c has burnt orange marks where the heat pipe runs under the screen. If the z5c is seriously hot in sunshine then i can't imagine what the z5p is like. The fact is that Sony used a dodgy processor and packed too much into the phone. So much that you can't Fkin use it in sunlight. What a joke. Don't expect a reply from them. This is capitalism at work.
