[deleted post]Sigh. No need to upgrade then. My z3+ is still good anyway. Hopefully, there'll be a new flagship with FM radio next year. Thanks for your help.
100rabh, 15 Nov 2016No he is not wrong.. Those guys are official mods and they directly contact Sony
The Chip ... moreDid he specify what exactly is lacking then?
Ah, never mind...
It doesnt work even if chip is there, which is a shame, but it is what it is...
I am considering X Compact with FM radio anyway....
Thanks for info tho?
Tann Hauser, 15 Nov 2016Well he is wrong obviously, as teardown showed Murata chip package including FM chip inside.
... moreNo he is not wrong.. Those guys are official mods and they directly contact Sony
The Chip might be there but as he said it does not have all the required hardware
100rabh, 15 Nov 2016No an official on Sony forum mentioned that Xz does not have the required hardware to run it now Well he is wrong obviously, as teardown showed Murata chip package including FM chip inside.
Why it is not utilized on flagship phones is beyond me
Hope XDA devs wil make about to get it working, if none else

Savihtc, 15 Nov 2016Hi bro, how is the audio quality in XZ? Is it loud the stereo speakers. It's not very loud..
But audio quality is amazing...
Quality n loudness are two different things

Yeah, a shame it is.
But on the subject, dont know how it could be a Google problem, more like a SoC problem or sth cause X Compact with other SoC has FM despite having same android build firmware.
Interesting and curious subject.
100rabh, 14 Nov 2016Owner of Xperia xz here... Any question or queries please ask Hi bro, how is the audio quality in XZ? Is it loud the stereo speakers.

It's not Sonys fault actually... I read the problem is with Google now...it creates problem with fm.. How not sure.. But that's why Samsung baked out of fm as well

Ali Bashir, 15 Nov 2016Sony's UI is the smoothest between android smartphones. Man I know. I wanted to ask your opinion as an Samsung user... Sony is very smooth. Thanks for true answer.

[deleted post]I would like to challenge you take whatever other phone and try to defeat my XZ's premium look with it, I bet you will not even come closer, That's how I was impressed with it first day I received my handset.

One's I was impressed with heartbeat monitor and bought a Chinese smart band, but after few days got to know it's non using function and how many gimmicky specs Samsung provide their customers such as heart rate monitor which is no much use in real life.
100rabh, 14 Nov 2016No fm radio sorry He meant to ask you to just try downloading some free fm radio app and see if that fm chip inside XZ will work.
We wonder about it cause Sony NL said there is Fm radio inside XZ just there is no preinstalled Fm radio app and one should just use some 3rd party fm radio app.
So, does it work like that?
