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

It felt the performance became a tad better but there are still some missing features such as no selfie camera screen flash option, seemingly no stabilization option for the main camera, no systemwide dark theme (not even in the Theme store), no option to remove the apps tray icon, no option to customise the size of icons, no change in camera UI, speakers still sounding tinny (which can be corrected via a software update) and battery seems quick to drain though standby still very good.

Hi, I am planning to purchase a Sony mobile. I am confused between XA1 Plus and XZ. Both cost same here. which should I go for?
I am concerned about low battery life of XZ and mid level chipset of XA1 Plus. Your suggestions are welcome.
So, I've been using my xz for more than 10 months now. At first there was a lot of heating problem. Charging, recording a video and even in high caliber Android games. Then after 2 months, no heating problems anymore. I only have heating problems when I use my camera for 4k even 1080p videos for 30mins. I don't have heating problems since then. I'm using the Oreo update and Gotta say, my camera, performance everything looks superb than before.
Anonymous, 08 Dec 2017How is the battery and heating with oreo update? battery is shit. I get 2.5 hrs on screen time on 4g and 3 on WiFi. the android system consumes the majority of the battery on standby, so the standby time is rubbish as well
no heating so far.
Performance is not good as well. the device is unusable under 5% (yes, no stamina is activated).

I would never bash a brand as it is an insult to hard work and we all know that there will be no perfect phone, none ever will exist. I am assuming that you're an Android user. I will never bash such user, my whole family is using an Android smartphone and I know why, it's reliable.
"Enjoy your new iPhone" - thanks, I will. Cheers. I hope someday, people of both parties (Android & iOS) will help each other out with new ideas and let the others hear and see as well. Let's not bash one another just because of the devices being used and preferred.
AnonD-721792, 14 Dec 2017I loved my XZ. My first ever Sony smartphone. Especially the camera! But I have to sell it... moreYou are or anybody is free with his preference to like whatever he wants, but yes, some people doesn't like the fact that other people like a deferent thing they don't, producing weird behaviors and bashing another brands, and that is a big ignorance, have fun with your new iPhone.
