Nope, android 12 (XQ-BC52) - still had to get rid of it manually.
I do not think Google cares too. And I have plenty of ADB experience don't you worry.
I know what you mean, same problem here.Not only that, I don't know if anyone else has this problem:
When you enter the app drawer or return to the app drawer from another App.
The upper part where of the app drawer, the search bar, instead of being black (I have the dark theme enabled), it becomes semi-transparent white or white. Until you close everything and go back to the application drawer again, it does not go back to how it should be (black).
I can't take a screenshot of this, because when I do the gesture to take the screenshot, the error it goes away. Maybe I could make a video...
You must be on Android 12 because that's where a little green dot appears to "warn" you that either your microphone, or your camera, or both of them are active and listening/watching what you are doing.
Mine works great! I have none of the issues that you are having. Therefore maybe you got a defective phone that needs to be exchanged/repaired under warranty.yep, it's really sad. changing out sim cards makes no difference to my battery life. i'm averaging 2.4%/hour with the screen off... no thanks. it's really, really, really bad.
the fingerprint reader is also... i want to throw this through a wall at this point. i've tried both the finger print setup directions and the conflicting directions on their webiste. i've tried registering only one, registering 3, registering 5. sorry, it just sucks.
and lastly.. the proximity sensor! constantly pressing buttons during calls and i've never had this issue on another phone. yea, good luck with always on display and not pressing random buttons. i even tried xperi+ for the proximity sensor fix and while it helps in those scenarios, it also thinks it's covered when it's not sometimes during normal use. all around real crappy.
with the announcement that they are reworking their release of android 12, i really have no choice but to return this. not like i really thought it would fix all of the issues anyway. i honestly don't care if it's software or hardware related. this phone is $1,300 and not worth dealing with so many niggles.
my xz premium did not have these issues and i'm so sad i have to ditch xperia. i do enjoy using the wf-1000xm4 with it. i have plenty of other devices to use for music, though, and even have an LDAC transmitter for PC. i might keep these, but i need my phone to be a phone.
According to this tweet by the guy who runs www.cacombos.com, Android 12 added new 5G CA combos to the Asian model of the Xperia 1 III. Maybe the update for Android 12 will do the same for the U.S. model. One can only hope.These two are a daily hassle that I'd love to see fixed:
- SA 5G fix for USA model
- Workaround for Google's broken microSd access
The LTE + NR71 combo it uses for NSA 5G drops a lot and can take minutes to recover.
I'm using old versions of apps to not hit Google's Nov 2021 mandatory migration to SAF for microSd. Google's SAF is so broken that apps only lock up or crash using it. Some phone makers are providing an SAF bypass setting that gets them Google certified without permanently losing microSd use.
if it cannot have 4K res no matter what, it shouldn't be called "4K display" anymore.
