Don't blame to me because in the previous old comments from other ppl it show the detail enabled that dev option too. Anf now it became public secret right?
Btw your explanation source from google or, are u a programmer?
sandynesia, 15 Sep 2014Before i explain how to find 'Force Rendering GPU' option. sry for my late reply.
Here, f... moreOK, here´s what force GPU rendering means and it is good for:
"Enabling this preference in developer options offloads task of rendering window components like buttons, text and complex 2d graphics calculations to GPU. This often results in much faster UI rendering including animations. On one side you will definitely achieve better frame rate (and hence smooth experience) throughout system, but you may end up using more battery. On certain devices, GPU consumes more power the CPU, hence you may observe 5-15% lower battery life with option enabled.
I would recommend having this option enabled on devices with weaker CPUs e.g. You should seldom need to enable this on dual-core 1.4ghz ARM CPU.
Offloading UI rendering to GPU has obvious benefits so that CPU can work on other important tasks like database IO, data manipulation, layout calculations and responding to other user inputs."
I wasn´t really into helping n00bs to be able to unlock developer options, because it is for developers and advaced users. It is hidden by default and there is a reason why...
v.d, 15 Sep 2014what read?? sry i din't get ur words.. plz explain..Don't be lazy ppl in here bro, don't make any sense u want to buy Smartphone but the user is not smart eh? Haha just joke.
If u want to know mostly problem with this device, take more times to read previous comment.
Vicky, 15 Sep 2014Most of poeple saying that sony z screen problm its sensitive camera bad and also bettry drain... moreAll of that things have u heard is hoax bro. I have using for 9month and all i see is going fine.
Just to remember if u want to buy this device,make sure u will not dissapoint in the future.
Because the rumor, Android Version 4.4.4 will be the last version for this smartphone,it mean u will not get the latest Android (coming soon Lollipop).
If u the person don't really care about UI and not Update freaky. Go buy this one,
but if u really care about UI and update, at least buy Xperia Z2 which is no major different with Xperia Z3 that made for Cycle Half Year Gimmick marketing only.
max, 14 Sep 2014How to find rendering gpu pse help me to find outBefore i explain how to find 'Force Rendering GPU' option. sry for my late reply.
Here, first this option is only for Developer Options only,it mean for advanced user.
How to activate it is just go to Setting - About Phone - Build Number (Touch it quickly about 7-9times).
Voila Developer Options now is available above About Phone option.
Then you just open Developer Options amd scroll down till u find 'Force GPU rendering' and tick it.
The benefit is your phone will working smooth and battery life have more endurance than before. *IMO*
v.d, 15 Sep 2014which is better - note 3 neo or xperia z??Note 3 Neo is just like Note 2 with new look only. I prefer Sony XZ for your choose because it has better performance than SGN3 NEO. But if u want last longer one for battery life go for Note 3 Neo.
arsha arshad, 15 Sep 2014Can anybody tell battery standby time after updated tp 4.4.4
How many hours it lost long afte... moreFor heavy game like Injustice:GAU is about 4-5 hours full play game hd with note in airplane mode from full battery to 0%. You can think if u turn on data while playing HD games it drains faster about only 3 hours for play game HD. If u need an internet connection. I suggest wifi only. At least it take 1% than use data 3%
Pantoeloe, 14 Sep 2014Used OTA or PC comp? If OTA fail, try to use PC comp. Hopefully it can solve your problem. ThanksProblem solved bro, since 3 days ago. Succesfully 100% via Sony PC Companion and the last update very worth. Thx for your suggestion and sry for my late reply.
Vinz2008101763, 15 Sep 2014ther version of xperia z 4.4.4 kitkat was sooo cool and smooth no problem anymore.How to update (Whick one is better) to wait on PC Companion or flash via Flastool ?
Vicky, 15 Sep 2014Most of poeple saying that sony z screen problm its sensitive camera bad and also bettry drain... moreThere are no problems with the camera. Also battery is very bad only in 4.4.2 Kit Kat. The camera gives better details and better color than Z1 and Z1c's camera (Everybody knows that their camera is 20.7 MP).
ther version of xperia z 4.4.4 kitkat was sooo cool and smooth no problem anymore.
i have a sony xperia z and m satisfied version 4.4.4 the battery life is ok.
Well, in my case the battery life went down extremely. I checked it out with 4.4.2 on 2G, bloatwares bisabled in stamina mode: 11-12 days regarding my phone. Now with 4.4.4 with the same settings, it says: 3-4 days. Since my phone is often connected to notebooks and have a car charger, it doesn´t bother me, because the performance is much better. Smooth and fast afer 34 apps installed.
