Does anyone know, if the Z2 will feature an UMS Mode out-of-the-box like the Z1 did? One of the things that really bothered me with my Galaxy S3 and the main reason I rooted was the missing UMS Mode so that I could connect it to my car-stereo.

Does anyone know who maybe already had their hands on the Z2 if it will feature an UMS mode so that I don't have to root it?

Thanks!

thx for the reply! I'm too hoping that the Z2 will have the UMS Mode as well since the Z1 had it. I have time since I won't get a new phone at launch, so I can wait until the first ones the bought it can tell if it really has a UMS Mode.

I don't think it will tho .-. Android loves MTP and they are encouraging OEMs to all switch to MTP.

I know, that's why I had to flash my S3. But since the Xperia Z1 - to my knowledge - still has the UMS option my hope is, the Z2 will have it, too.

If all else fails I'd indeed have to flash my phone. It's a real shame, my car-stereo supports MTP, but not the MTP mobile-phones use, only the MTP-mode of the small fraction of USB-players that use MTP...
