AnonD-481725, 01 Mar 2018Xa2 and xa1 plus are yours, insane battery life, very loud speakers and pretty good cameras. The XA2 is not yet available in the UK. And the XA1 Plus won't be released in the UK as far as I know. The former seems to have decent specs and a lower price but one thing I hate about it is not water resistant. Or is it? And camera seems so-so.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 01 Mar 2018Nah fam. Because the version they are using is the older version, I have used the old version ... moreAnd even screen maximum brightness becomes lower, in fact not "laggy" but slower with less frame rate, i have that app you mentioned, i downloaded another app to test the screen frame rate in each stamina level, my conclusion..
No stamina.... 60fps
Stamina level 1.....45fps
And as i mentioned with every stamina level maximum brightness decrease, i noticed drop in connections strength too.
My observation, maybe each stamina level reduces the voltage in the smartphone by 25%, the voltage input of the phone is made up of 4 equal channels, without stamina all channels are active, closing each channel will cause 25% drop in the voltage followed by the overall smartphone performance.

AnonD-481725, 26 Feb 2018Is it the same stamina mode? I don't think so. Nah fam. Because the version they are using is the older version, I have used the old version in my older smartphones before, it doesn't slow down the clock speeds, it just stops background services from running, that's it. As for now the new STAMINA MODE, restrictions come in place. The higher the restrictions, u will feel like it is laggier, but in fact it is not, it is just they restricted the animations and made the "laggy" feel. If u have an app to monitor your smartphone performance and specifications which I use it to notice if my clock speed went down after extensive use, the app is called DevCheck, it is actually running at max clock speed. But, making the animations have that slow and "laggy" feel really helps in saving my battery, one time my battery was left 6% and thanks to the battery saving feature I was able to keep my smartphone on standby for 3 hours before going home to charge
I have been trying to "like" my Xperiz XZ sinc buying it brand new at an expensive price of GBP449 last Summer. The speakers has been less than loud (not loud enough for me when i'm on a bus or in the street then suddenly you don't realize you missed an important phone call from you work manager or partner or next of kin and that is VERY IMPORTANT TO ME). And for its battery capacity and the work i do it doesn't last the whole damn day and that for me is DISTURBING. Sony has also decided to either remove some features and "basic features" still are missing (see my other comment thread). So, I am selling it. And now looking for a good affordable midrange phone that has a loud(er) speaker than the XZ, great performance (SD625 & up) and a battery life that truly & realistically last the whole damn day. Of course it must have a good camera too. My budget: up to GBP249.99
Any suggestions please?
paco2x, 27 Feb 2018The night mode was removed in Nougat and still missing in Oreo... i don't think it will comeba... moreDimly is just a poorly-made widget/app hybrid. I just dims the overall brightness with a blue light filter which (again) is not available in an Oreo-powered XZ.
