It must be a serius bug !!!!
I have made an very deep investigation on this problem and it seems that the new software (Oreo Android 8) has messed up the 4G/LTE to 3G handling/switching quite a bit.
When 4G or 4G+ with weak signal is locked to the phone and you start a call, the mobile network in our country at least (Tele2) reroute the call to a 3G/GSM system, and it fails every time. But if I disable the 4G to 3G,GSM the call works EVERY TIME. Note, you cannot even be reach as the network just drops the call, doesn't find the phone, but on 3G/GSM it works flawlessly.
I'ved put the simcard in my Lumia 900, no problem at all, put it in a Samsung , same here no problem at all. But my Wifes XZP with same software has the same problem, her work phone (Samsung) with the same operator on the same test location (spot) doesn't.
The testing is with all the phones is done att the same spot, at different spot / locations with same result specially on weak 4G signals. I use the app Network Cell info to actually see the problem with 4G to 3G switchover, so the problem is definitly here.
So. SONY YOU HAVE TO FIX THIS NOW, NOT IN ABOUT 2 WEEKS OR NEXT PATCH, JUST RIGHT NOW.
This is really, really bad engineering, and yes I'm a software programmer / tech on transmission systems with over 30 years of exp. So Sony here me out , the Android 8 has serious problem with XZP and 4G/3G handling.
I have talked to Sony (Sweden) and the are well aware about this issue.
Sony is working on an update to fix the problem "not" switching to 3G when getting a call and/or calling.
According to them the problem it a combo of Oreo and XZP.
Hope it's not taking to long time for the fix to arrive.
During sw repair for Xperia-X does it require internet continuous
Yes, the Xperia Companion Software will first download the software then install it, download size is around 2.8 GB. If you are re-installing software because of Wifi connectivity issues in 7.1.1 update, I already tried, didn't help.
Lately, while using the vertical Sony clock widget I have noticed that the widget automatically resizes itself and the digits displaying the hours get clipped automatically.
In order to bring it back to its normal state I need to delete and add it back to the home screen after every few hours.
Is anybody else having the same problem as well?
X Compact. My clock widget was updated few days ago and it mentioned fix for this. Had this issue also before Clock Widget update. Updated "Clock widgets" version is 5.2.A.0.10
The 4g lte network in hp sony xperia can not be used
Hi @Df14, welcome to our forum!
Your question has been translated to English as this is an English only forum.
Are you not able to choose a 4G/LTE network in your device or is 4G/LTE missing when you go to Settings > More > Mobile networks > Preferred network type?
There are different versions of the Xperia Z2 and all of them does not support 4G/LTE, so please get back to me with which model number you have. You can find this in Settings > About phone.
I'm sorry if I misunderstood your question and if I did, please elaborate on the behaviour you are experiencing.
I HAVE A VERY series issue with my x compact camera
when i shoot with the rear camera
any person on the picture specially when the background is white
there is a shadow appear above the hair and ears and shulders of this person
does anyone notice this
this might be the flash
so should i go to repair center and will they replace my phone
Turn you phone not the camera app
Turn it so that the physical camera button on the side of phone is pointing down to floor, and try taking same picture with flash. It should eliminate the shadow.
Heres and example of two pictures of my card. When using the camera normally with flash, shadow is created above the card. But when turning the phone 180degrees then shadow from top is eliminated.
I would like to start a new thread regarding issues with the phone's touchscreen since the original thread here was marked as solved in March 2016, but the promised update doesn't exist or doesn't seem to resolve the issue.
I have a black Z5 Compact since November 2015. For some months now my touchscreen has been acting weird. After some minutes of usage the lower half of the screen is partially overreacting - meaning repetitve and/or displaced input - and partially not reacting at all. The issue appears to be triggered faster when the phone is being charged (also when using the original charger and cable), and considering the higher temperature of the phone during this time, the problem could be connected to overheating. In any case, the problem can be solved temporary by switching the screen off and on. However, since it can happen every few minutes, this is not a permanent solution. I tried several of the suggested fixes, namely removing the additional case, switching to safe mode, removing the sd card and even repairing and updating the phone using PC Companion (including losing lots of data). The last one apparently even increased the frequency of the problem.
I'm disappointed by Sony and right now I'm not thinking of buying another phone of the company since these problems emerged already when the phone was introduced and the promised solution was apparently removed in a later update. But I'm also not willing to give up an otherwise really good phone that's just 2 years old and I hope that Sony will remember how to treat their customers especially if they want to keep them.
No, I'm just thinking of possible faults if the grounding plate is touching or interfering with the digitizer... there's a little copper plate that bends over the rest of the USB inside, the left has the vibration motor, and the right side has the speaker, that's what's around that area..
It may require a new digitizer
Since the Oreo update, I can't change my message tone. I have found where to change the notification sounds in settings but this doesn't change the message tone for SMS
Hi @Toffeeblue, welcome to our forum!
To change the notification tone for the Messaging application in Android 8.0, please follow the instructions below.
Let me know if that helps!
I can't ask Google from home screen as the icon has disappeared
Do you mean the Google search bar which has the microphone? If so the widget has probably been deleted.
To get it back just hold down on the home screen until a menu pops up, select Widgets then choose the Google widget (the thumbnail shows the search bar). If it doesn't load on screen you may need to do a quick device restart (software bug that can sometimes stop widgets from loading) and then try again.
My XA has a blotch. It's actually on the navigation bar right next to recent (multitasking key). It's invisible in the dark background, i noticed it when i changed my theme which has light background on the nav keys, it's visible while watching videos and photos or when i use full screen (hide nav keys) in the browser. It looks really weird. I tried everything from safe mode to diagnostics and software repair, but it doesn't go away. I don't get time to go to service centre 'cause its really far from my area plus i had a really bad experience with the guy there. Hope he's not there now.
Someone had the same problem earlier, but no one responded there, so i made a separate post. To me It looks like a hardware problem.
I have a sparkling white dot, visible only on light colours, when looking at the screen from an angle. I have it for over a year by now, it might have been there from the very beginning. Looking through Sony's term and conditions (found on the phone), I have come across this paragraph:
"Minor variations in display brightness and color may occur between devices. There may be tiny bright or dark dots on the display. These are called defective pixels and occur when individual dots have malfunctioned and cannot be adjusted. Two defective pixels are deemed acceptable."
So, unless you have at least 3, there's no point in going to Service center.
