Xperia Active :: Contrast Getting Worse When Scrolling?

Jul 23, 2012

I believe this also happens on similar 2011 family phones, probably all sharing the same display/screen size, but in a manner way worse: everywhere content is scrolled. I've seen this in the stock browser, in Instagram and similar apps.What happens is that if there is an image on the screen and you change the view by scrolling, the contrast of the image detoriates heavily.E.g. in Instagram, theres the image the user has uploaded and on top of the screen is the avatar of this user. If you start scrolling the screen content, the contrast of the screen changes as long as the avatar is not completely on screen. Like as long as the first pixel row of the content is completely white, the contrast is 0 and if the first pixel row is broken into dark and bright pixels, the contrast changes to -10.This is very annoying as theses are very heavy contrast changes, like complete loss of cloud texture (as taken with a very low spec phone).My active is on ICS, 4.1.B.0.431 but this issue has happened since GB 2.3.4.

Xperia Active :: Exercise Tracking Difficult Because Active Accelerometers Fail Intermittently?

Dec 31, 2011

I have an app, Activity Classifier, that uses the handset accelerometers to provide information on activities and total exercise. It automates exercise tracking, classifies activities by type and quantifies aerobic intensity. Live data streamed from an Xperia Arc using the app is displayed in a blog. While it is possible to use on the Active it is unfortunately more difficult on the Active than the Arc because the Active accelerometers have a fault that is hard to get around. The problem is that the accelerometers sometimes take quite a while to start sampling when either started or the sampling frequency is changed.Occasionally it can take longer than 90 seconds. The problem can be seen with the app Accelerometer Frequency. Switch between sampling frequencies and notice that sometimes it switches instantly and sometimes it doesn't. To minimise battery consumption Activity Classifier acquires data from the accelerometers for 6 seconds out of every 30. If no other app is using the accelerometers they will start and stop every sampling period. On the Active they frequently don't start and the app detects a faulty accelerometer. The app has an option to keep accelerometers on and if this is selected it will work OK but battery consumption goes up a lot. The Active comes with a pedometer app called Walkmate. I can see from the Accelerometer Frequency app that Walkmate keeps the acclerometers running at 50 Hz and running Walkmate at the same time as Activity Classifier will make Activity Classifier work OK as well. Walkmate seems pretty power efficient and uses less than half the power of the market leading pedometer app Accupedo, run in power balanced mode, but it counts a different number of steps.

Xperia Active :: My Active Won't Turn On

Apr 13, 2012

When I woke up this morning my phone was turned off so I try to turn it on by holding the power button, it only flashes the LED (red) 3 times between short pauses, no vibrations then stays turned off.Next, I tried to plug the charger in then holding the power button. still the same symptoms as above.Lastly, I tried plugging the charger / connector to my laptop then plugging the phone in. When I did that, the red LED shows 1 blink on intervals as opposed from the 3 blinks above.I know I still have my warranty but I want at least try and fix it because I don't like going out on weekends (the days of the week where I get to rest) so I'd rather try a fix here at home.

IPhone :: Why Did Battery Life Get Worse After Updating To IOS 5.1

Mar 15, 2012

Why did my battery life get worse after updating to iOS 5.1 on my 4S? It wasn't too bad when using 5.0.1, but after updating, I have gone from having to charge each night to having to charge every 6-8 hours. A friend had the oposite result on his 4S. He was having major battery issues before the update and the update cured his problems.

IPhone :: Increasingly Worse Bluetooth Connection?

Mar 27, 2012

My iPhone 4 is steadily getting worse about dropping bluetooth connection with my headset. I'm on my second iPhone 4 with this same issue. The symptoms: Bluetooth works great on the iPhone for several months and is fine with different brand headsets, including Samsung and LGAfter several months, the iPhone will start dropping bluetooth connection with the headset when in close proximity and on standby (that is, not actively in a call, just paired and waiting). Once the problem begins, it gets increasingly worse in just a week or two, with the connection dropping and re-establishing multiple times a minute even with the iPhone in my front pocket, less than 3 feet from the headset, and on the same side of my body.The bluetooth connection seems slightly stronger when a call is active. Although, the call participants might sound garbled to each other if there's anything between the phone and headset (like my body).The problem is reproducible even with a brand new headset. The following suggested resolutions did not work for me:Power off/on the iPhoneReset the iPhone (Power + Home Button)Toggle Airplane ModeToggle Bluetooth radioDelete and re-pair the bluetooth device(s) Reset Network Pair a brand-new, out of the box bluetooth headset. With my first iPhone, I was able to demonstrate the problem at the Apple Store. They provided a free replacement iPhone on the spot. Great!

Fast-forward a few months and now, with the second iPhone having the same problem, the Apple Store is less eager to replace the unit. Their back-room diagnostic testing with connection to clock-radio units did not demonsrate the problem (for one thing, that uses the A2DP bluetooth profile, not supported on any of my headsets). They offered to replace the unit again anyway to "make me happy", but I prefer a real solution. The Apple Store rep didn't find any technical bulletins about this problem. After purchasing yet another brand-new headset, I now plan to return this second iPhone to the Apple Store for replacement... but I want to know if I alone have uncovered this particular hardware issue with the iPhone 4.

Xperia Z2 :: Phone Background (Wallpaper) Scrolling

Sep 17, 2014

I brought a Xperia Z2 yesterday and when I went to put a background on It zoomed into my picture and I couldn't zoom out it also asked me to crop the picture when I did it look stupid, and when you scroll across the picture moves with the scroll, is there anyway I can have a static background so it doesn't move when I swipe between screens?

I remember my s5 had a option to do this and so did my S4 but can't find it on the menu on the sony to turn off wallpaper scrolling.

Xperia Z5 :: Scrolling Screen And Typing Too Sensitive

Jul 3, 2010

The screen on my Z5 has become over sensitive and when scrolling it keeps opening pages or links even when I hardly touch the screen. Indeed while typing this sort paragraph it's taking longer because the keyboard is entering letters for me. I have already rebooted the phone reinstalled software and was OK for a while. But now it's back. Impossible to go on to Facebook as I can't scroll down without opening every link.

BB Torch :: 9800 Color Contrast Inverted?

Nov 4, 2012

I replaced my Torch 9800 LCD a couple days ago. The battery was dead, so when I connected it so it could charge, I saw that the charging screen was odd. It is supposed to be black and the gray battery with the yellow thingy, and it was a white background and instead of a yellow thingy, it was blue. Now all of my OS is inverted, I changed the option in the settings but nothing helped. In fact, when it is set to normal, it is inverted, and when is inverted, it is normal, I don't know what to do, this option does not affect the camera. When I use the camera it looks like negative or like an x ray.

1. Is there any way through which circular scrolling can be enabled for the SE Android Launcher(circular scrolling = when you scroll past the last screen, it goes back to the beginning). It would also be nice if it worked for the menu, but my main aim is the home screen scrolling.

2. Is there any way to add more than 5 home screens?I have a Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro, not rooted(not intending to). I like the default home launcher very much, and I wouldn't like to switch.
