by XB on 26th February 2018

in Firmware, Xperia X series

The Xperia X and X Compact received Android Oreo for the first time earlier this month, and now Sony Mobile has followed that update with a new update that includes the 1 February 2018 Android security patch, which fixes the ‘Meltdown’ and ‘Spectre’ CPU vulnerabilities. The build number moves from 34.4.A.0.364 to version 34.4.A.2.19. If you have downloaded the update, let us know your impressions below. We will include FTF firmware links for both handsets shortly.

Thanks to everyone that sent this in!

    “Swipping up and down on the desktop for open the app menu” is gone, which was come with android 8.0


    Swiping up action is gone but swiping down still gets recent apps

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Yea it was so weird. I loved that feature. It’s gone on the beta testing as well. :(

  • Long Hoàng Đình

    I confirm that PRATHAMESH GOVEKAR is right

  • Long Hoàng Đình

    before the update, my antutu v7 was 87k, so it means that it actually makes the phone faster? I don’t know but I feel that all the lags are gone. (before this update and after Oreo update, it was very lagging)

  • Husam

    I have the XPERIA XZ1 and i got the February update 3 times!

    Plus, the GPS/location icon is always on!

    Any idea why?

  • Joseph Sony

    After oreo update i am facing severe barrery probpro and heating issues it still persists when sony will fix them My phone is so laggy and a alarm notification does not goes from screen. Battery life is reduced to just half pls sony fix and when i use Internet mymphone heated up so much.

  • abbigenius art of war 3

    Whenever i turn on my Internet my phones start heating and battery goes down severely. Pls sony fix

    After updating oreo battery backup was increased. But after updating spectre update battery is degrading itself. Last night my battery was 40% at 11:00pm in morning 6:00am my phone was dead without using it. Even there is an issue with keypad. Whichever key is pressed same is not popped up. Please fix the issue with battery sony.sThe phone is getting heated while using browser as well as using Instagram.

  • Hopefully that fixes the battery too, because I have updated to Android 8 a couple of days ago and the battery usage is never less than 5% per hour!!! I have even “repaired the sw” with Xperia Companion (which resets all data), and the only thing I gained has been the typical headache to restore/reconfigure part of my apps (and I saved time only because the Xperia backup/restore works. The one from Google is a piece of junk!).

    This happened on other people as well. But it’s still there, the Xperia Home Devs disabled swipe up to app tray if you don’t have the app button hidden . Before it was possible to swipe up and have the app tray button but now they made it so you have to hide it at the Xperia home settings in order to have swipe up. It made more sense . And the feature is still there.

    DID THEY FORGET ABOUT CE1? we still do not receive oreo

  • Tomasz

    I’m angry too. Waiting and waiting… All brand like T-mobile, Orange already got it, other regions too. What’s wrong with SONY?!

  • Quentin Grs

    Did it broke smart function for someone else ? Have to test more but I couldn’t trigger it last night and today

  • Alex

    Bit of a long-shot but does anyone know where I can get a generic UK download of 34.3.A.0.252?

  • Deads

    Did you try to reset it to factory default?

  • Deads

    Tried resetting it to factory default?

  • Dhaval Patel

    Why to reset if everybody is facing problem this problem is in patch provided.

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Aha the feature is there but you have to hide the apps icon to get that. But I remember with the apps icon I was able to swipe up. I guess they took that feature out.

  • Enzo Z

    What about auto brightness ? With Android 8.0 it’s a nightmare

  • Ryan

    Any idea when 8.1 is releasing for all of us ???

  • Muhammad Ibrar

    Lag is reduced and brightness issue is fixed but not like 7.1.1
    Overall a slight performance increment and battery is still not better than nougat

  • Caner Asln

    34.4.A.2.19 update issues

    FM radio headset does not sound! Switching between headphones and loudspeakers sounds the headphones!
    the gyroscope and accelerometer sensors are deactivated. the sensors are starting to work when the device is rebooted.
    When I turn the gps feature on and then turn it off, the icon remains on the notification screen. The gps icon does not stay on the clock. Despite the fact that the property is off, it seems clear but the menu is closed and the system is off!

    I experienced such problems in updating! as soon as sony needs to fix them. I’m not sure if I’m the only one who has the problem!

  • Fernando Ocampo

    Its no Sony’s blame. Its blame of your carrier.

  • sn1k4r

    THanks man for show it. Swipe up still alive :D

  • Tomasz

    What do you mean “my carrier”? My phone is unbranded its clean CE1.

  • Fernando Ocampo

    Ok , it’s sony blame. I’m in Latin America, and we have android Oreo. Just unbranded phones.Movistar, Telcel, claro,etc. Didn’t have the update.
