Default Check and post your Panel ID/Manufacturer (ROOT Needed)

Let's try and check if Sony is indeed using various panels for the Z1.


Root is needed to check panel ID.


Download and install this app


Its recommended you perform a reboot before proceeding


Then type the following command in Terminal

- su
- dmesg|grep -i panel


Look for "Found panel: mipi_video_********_Full_HD_******"

Eg- Found panel: mipi_video_jdc_Full_HD_mdy70

Along with panel ID & manufacturer also post your general views on the screen and also how good the viewing angles are.

That app doesn't work for Z1 as Z1 doesn't use a Sharp/JDC panel. Already tried.

+1. Tried myself too, doesn't work. However I'm pretty much sure I could see the panel type somewhere in the service menu on XZ (for e.g I could see "mdy70" mentioned somewhere), but can't recall where exactly? Also checked the build prop, but can't say (esp. when I don't know what I'm looking for?). Maybe someone can develop an app like the one for XZ which needs no root .
Sony Xperia Z2 (D6502)

You have a Sharp panel.

How are the viewing angles?

Not so very good. But not something that matters for me.
This is not the "best" display for the Z1 right? Its "leftovers" from the Z if im reading it right?

That feels not so good, as i paid for the best display and got an old..
