On latest 149 fw pure stock, I wonder if anyone else is having airplaine/flight mode on/off and switching back mobile signal/data on issues ?

Edit : nvm flashing different region ftf seems to fix my problem

Maybe try restarting the phone... On older ones switching airplane while turning on wifi failed to connect. Just a thought.

Hey, my XZ was OK without any specific issues on the 149 update. But on the 157 update, it is experiencing the battery drain that is quite clear. My phone's battery, which usually went through a day easily previously, now ends up shutting down at 5 or 6 pm; which hasn't ever been seen since I bought this device. :(
@majidmobini I suppose that we have the same problem. Right now, it is annoying me much and I just don't feel comfortable at all.
(Also, sorry for my bad english)

Just finished installing the new update and at the moment I don't seem to be having any issues.
In fact for me it seems a little smoother and less laggy

Might not be a rom issue afterall.
Similar things happening on my Xperia X Performance with a months old rom version. Google app staying active in the background eating up CPU time.
Google fumbled a recent app update imho.

Does anyone notice in last update if you toggle "color inversion" on/off display doesn't go back to normal but stays much more reddish... And you have to -just- open the white balance menu to get the scr as it used to be

Right - think I've fixed it.
Clearing google app cache/data and readding my account, unsubscribing from google beta, rebooting into safe mode - did nothing. The issue was still there, google showing up as top battery drain and hours and hours of active background CPU time.

Then I checked Greenify, enabled greenifying system apps and checked and voila - Xperia System Configurator was right at the top and is using the Google Cloud Messaging service.
Greenified Xperia System Configurator and battery drain has been fine for the last day. :good:

NFC not working

I'm on 157 and my NFC not working properly. I try to turn it on but it's switching back to turn off. I try to boot into the safe mode but it's no use. I'm using F8331. Does anyone have the same problem with me? :confused:

    There are plenty of little things new. Also, it is always recommended that major update of Android should be accompanied with a full wipe of your device. Trust me, I did a full wipe after updating through OTA & the performance is phenomenal.

    Here are some of things I noticed that are new which other users failed to acknowledge.
    1) The Startup Setup is redesigned
    2) 6 QS tiles instead of 5 in the notification header
    3) Round default icons for applications (System as well as play store apps)
    4) Updated transitions
    5) New style of Phone Heads up display (When a call comes, the heads up has been redesigned)
    6) Assist app in settings drawer
    7) QS controls removed from System UI Tuner (Sony standardised them in their edit QS)
    8) No more battery % disappearing​ issue when it is selected from System UI tuner because Sony removed it from System UI tuner & standardised it.
    9) New long press power off menu (Redesigned + addition of emergency call button)

    The device feels much snappier & more responsive.
    Overall a great update.

    So far very pleased with the update in general.
    The battery drain seems to be less, specially over night, I would usually loose 5-6%, last night it was 1%, with all the apps I usually have.
    The battery information in the settings is changed and now makes a lot more sense and is more detailed compared, the previous one was a mess.
    The phone feels snappier and faster, more responsive.
    I was also pleased to see there were some obvious changes in image processing, it seems like they reduced the amount of unnecessary noise-reduction and upped the sharpening a bit.
    The contrast balance in auto mode seems better, the distinction between shadows and lit sections is better.
    Aliasing on the edges of objects further away is less than before and also I see no edge blurring as before. In 16:9 there's still some minor loss in detail on very edges of the frame when you zoom in, but in 4:3 the entire frame looks equaly sharp.
    In general, the photos look much cleaner, more detail, a bit stronger colors and better brighness/contrast adjustment. To me the camera was always great, I'm not what you'd call a pro-user in regards to camera and photos, but still, improvements are welcome.
    I took some before/after samples indoors, one from closer under direct light and one from far away, standing in a very dark hallway to see how it handles auto white balance and brightness. Both identical conditions, auto mode, 23mpix 4:3 and object tracking disabled. The samples are cropped and zoomed in, test 1 and 3 are before the update.

    Umm how do i relock ? Is it possible on the X Series & is it Through Flashtool ??

    Apparently so, I have not tried it but someone on here has reported they relocked using flashtool.

    Very well, I will try & report back.
    Thank You for your support :)

    Yes you can relock your bootloader using flashtool ;)
