I subscribed to the program for all of my Z and X high-end flagships, and u can hide the app tray icon hence u can swipe up to have the app drawer, but do note that the app icons may look smaller even though it looks much more pleasing for me. The link is available in the XPERIA HOME BETA description, after subscribing to it u will receive the update in your software update section for your XPERIA. U can also unsubscribe if u don't want it which is also found in the description

I'm quite imopressed with Sony's updates but I can't help but notice some bits are missing or needs polishing such as:
1. App tray icon cannot be removed
2. No system side dark theme (not possible via Themes or thru 3rd-party launcher; still have a white background under Settings which doesn't help with battery life)
3. Still no blue light filter under drop down quick shortcuts
4. Speakers still sounding the same (a software update can easily remedy this)
5. Reboot could be faster
6. Camera (need I say more:)

As from what I heard for the November Security Patch, users are getting battery drains when the smartphone is on standby, and I am not getting the battery drain here fortunately, I slept for 11 hours and the battery percentage stayed the same throughout at 70% with WiFi turned on, pretty impressive I got to say...
My Phone Charge is very slow. charger And Cable good. i don't know problem. Please can you help me.....?

Faizal Firdaus, 24 Dec 2017Hi, I am planning to purchase a Sony mobile. I am confused between XA1 Plus and XZ. Both cost ... moreThis is my opinion. You can choose for yourself.
You can extend the battery life of your phone with the use of a power bank. It costs additional money and might be bothersome for you. However, you can't improve the chipset in any way (as far as I know). I don't have either phones you are debating between, but between a better chipset and a better battery life, I would take the better chipset.

I did noticed the performance is somewhat snappier but I have yet to observe fully the battery life and memory management. Booting of apps seems generally the same as before and the camera app had some rework if we are talking about the Manual controls - the ISO and other sub settings is hidden in the equalizer button which i thought wasn't there before.
For those jumping firmwares e.g 6.0 -> 7.1.2 -> recent 8.x android, it's always suggest/ best to backup your files on your pc/sd card then do a "FULL WIPE/RESET" every "Major" fimware update, not just your basic monthly updates.

I just got my ANDROID OREO update yesterday which came with November Security Patch and I am going to observe if there is some major battery draining, and the thing I am kind of let down is the camera app, because at first I thought that finally allow tuning of the ISO and shutter speed together like on my XPERIA XZs, XPERIA XZ PREMIUM and my XPERIA XZ1, but it is not the case, they just moved the ISO and shutter speed to where is white balance is, but I got to say the performance is much better than before
