Problems/Bugs Found in Sony Xperia Z2

Hi all

Thinking of starting this to consolidate the lists of issues found on this phone, so that we can share if there are any solutions available.

Eg

1) Sensitivity of screen is bad after pasting glass protector.

Solution: Update new firmware via Sony PC companion using the USB cable.

2) Some reported camera overheated during intensive photo shooting and video recording, camera app will shut down.

Solution: Non available yet.

3) Some reported gap/ alignment issue in white color set

Solution: Reject the set during inspection before purchase, or choose black/purple set which does not seem to have this problem.

.......... feel free to expand the list.

overheating

Hi,

i'm a new user of sony Z2....everything was good when i used it the first day yesterday...but today...after charging over magnetic dock throughout the nite from 0%....when i turn on the phone, it heats up instantly...even though i'm only using whatsapp..

my battery at 7.30am today was 100%...now i'm left with 78%....after minimal usage...using whatsapp most of the time....the weird thing is...the battery cooled down after my usage when screen blacks out....battery % nvr moved....but when i start to use it...the % drops bit by bit..

I've already did a firmware upgrade on Sunday....but I nvr did factory reset though...so most of the bloatware are still there....from M1...is this supposed to be a problem?

i feel that the tap to wake is not quite responsive after you immediately take out from pocket for sometime. After a few sec, it behaves well.

1) discovered a dead pixel at the bottom right of the phone.

2) ringtone is always loud at the preview of alarm or volumes, but when phone rings for an actual call its quite soft.. vibration is strong though.

3) screen is sometimes still not very sensitive even after firmware upgrade. using normal clear screen protector bought from the sony store at wisma.

Issues with my z2 white

Gap at top, but front camera not affected
Squeaky sound when applying pressure to screen with a hand at top left and bottom right

Solution.. Visit Bishan Sony, ask them escalate for one to one replacement in few days time

The guy acknowledged the issue and told me need a few days to escalate then will do one to one replacement. There's no mentioning of repair at least. They don't need you to leave your phone behind either. They will take a pic of the gap problem and will call you when replacement stock is ready

so the gap issues considered solved with 1-1 exchange.

so the camera heat and auto shutdown leh? this is 2nd most serious to me personally..
