Very much like any other Android device, the Xperia phones also have a few common problems to be aware of. We will list common problems and show you how to fix them.
Problem: Wi-Fi dropping
A lot of Xperia Z owners have been complaining about a weak Wi-Fi signal. Some people have had trouble connecting to specific routers, but most people are finding that the signal drops frequently.
As for it, you need to go into Settings and turn off Stamina mode: that’s been known to mess with Wi-Fi on occasion. Then restart the router and the phone.
Problem: Poor battery life
This is the most common complaint with everyone. That’s particularly likely if your phone is draining dramatically overnight when you aren’t using it.
You should start by going to Setting > Battery and reviewing what is eating your power, if there is an obvious app, then you can tackle it.
Problem: Sudden death
A sudden death bug is reported with Xperia Z. The problem is that the handset goes to sleep and will not wake up no matter how hard you shake it, even with a power button and volume up hard reset.
Sony released a software update with a fix in it which you should get OTA automatically.
Problem: Data loss
When I updated my Sony Xperia Z4 to the newest version, I just found my entire contact list disappear. It is really annoying and troublesome. Have you ever been struck in such situation? And how do you act to get your deleted data, like photos or contacts, back on your Sony Xperia phone? As for me, I instantly logged in my Gmail account to check whether there was a backup for my deleted contacts. Unfortunately, there was none.
But, eventually, I successfully recover my deleted contacts from on Sony Z4 with the special recovery tool-Sony Xperia Data Recovery Mac. If you carelessly deleted or lost photos, videos, messages, WhatsApp messages or others on your Sony Xperia Z5/Z4/Z3, you can also use it to restore them. What’s more, almost all Sony Xperia devices are compatible with this tool, including Sony Xperia Z6/Z5/Z4/Z3, Sony Xperia U, Sony Xperia L, Sony Xperia L, Sony Xperia J, Sony Xperia E and so on.
