I hadthis Prob with my z1, now crazy as it may seem because the headphone jack is unprotected you can get fluff in it. I had intermediate cutting outn for ages. Shine a VERY bright torch into the jack and you might come up trumps.

Photos are good. 80-90% of them. There background defocus, timeshift, so. It is ok. Photo is one of the best 10 in the android world.

I do not like this phone. Not only does it have to reboot several times a day in order to send text messages, but the charger piece fell off and now is not waterproof. It was very flimsy to begin with. Half the time the wifi doesn't work correctly, I know it's the phone and not the router because no other phones have this problem. It often freezes, and won't answer if I am getting a call. Definitely not worth $600.00

And also, the flap on top of the charging port came off so it's no longer water proof 😞😒

I've owned my Xperia phone for two months and I started to encounter problems with the aux-plug during last week. Every time I put a 3,5mm cord into the aux port, it starts to play via the headset for a couple of seconds after which the music is automatically paused. After I press play again it starts to play via internal speaker even if the headset is still connected.

After this the headphones aren't recognized anymore and the sound plays only via the internal speaker.

I tried several headphones (three to be precise) + different media players (YouTube, Spotify & Walkman) and they all have the same problem. Furthermore, the phone keeps lowering the volume down to zero automatically when the headphones are connected.

I tried to install some apps to fix this problem (Headset Toggle & HF Button) but neither offered a permanent fix. I also tried a factory reset on my phone, but the problem persisted. I also disabled smart connect and walkman apps, because the smart connect kept popping up every time the aux cable was connected, but refused to go away.

Please offer some guidance as to how to fix this issue, before I get rid of my Sony phone for good.

Had the phone for 11 month, after 3 month the phone was factory and hard reset by Sony service center due to malfunctions as: cant upload contacts, take several minutes to open apps e.g. calendar, contacts and others. I was told by Sony service support personal this is software issue and not hardware even do worked with the phone without any add-on for over a month time... unfortunately Sony have a great PR but no after sale service neither professional personal to address technical issues.
