xperia-x-performance-accelerometerA number of Sony Xperia X Performance owners have been suffering from a problem where the accelerometer will suddenly just stop working. There is a long thread of owners complaining about the issue on of the official Sony Talk Support forums, where the only solution appears to be rebooting your phone.

Well the good news is that Sony Mobile is now promising that a future update will fix the issue, although no timing has been confirmed. You can check out the quote below from one of the official Sony support folk below. We’ll let you know once it starts rolling.

Sony promises a fix for Xperia X Performance owners

“I’d like to say thanks to everyone who send us logs of this and again apologize for any inconvenience this is causing. I’ve just received information that a new software update will be available shortly with a solution for this. Until the new software update is available, if the accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, ambient light, proximity sensor, barometer or screen rotation stops responding, please try to restart the phone as a workaround.”

Thanks aession!

    Great, what about the very top of my phone not registering touch input. or when i swipe text, the swipe trail breaks and causes tons of typo errors? This is the biggest pain in the ass about this phone

    Your phone probably needs a repair of digitizer or the whole screen assamble replacement. You can try software repairs but I doubt it’ll work. You can also play with glove mode on and off and see if it helps.

    Yeah got the same answer from Sony Mobile SE when i asked them about the issue, good to see that they are listening to their customers over social networks and the Sony Talk forum :D

    How about fixing that damn touchscreen and swiping to type!! Double taps, triple taps, taps when trying to scroll etc. My god this phone is such a pain to use.

  • eats7

    Nope I have this shit too. It’s ridiculous

  • eats7

    I know right!? It the most frustrating phone I’ve ever had. Now this shit ugh

    Nice! Wow, sometimes they actually DO right by us. lol

    I also notice that when this issue kicks in that my Smart Call Handling no longer works either unless I reboot. This should fix everything though. Guess it will be a separate update from Nougat though?

    :/ People still say Sony has the best software and update, I have been saying the opposite for 3 years.. And it still sucks. This is a big flaw man. I still don’t believe they do proper testing for the new spdtware before pushing :/
