too buggy for not beta...

honestly, i was seriously pissed after i got to understand that xperia x is obsolete... now i waited for xa2 to get out of beta but beside many bugs it even hangs up while charging... had to open it and disconnect the battery to get it back to life.... two times... this bug is anoying. anyone else with a better way to solve it beside letting the battery drain or open it up to disconnect?

They sometimes have issues too, unfortunately ;-). Maybe the output voltage is too high for some reason... Did you have the same issue with Android was still installed, i.e., prior to flashing SFOS?

i have original case for XA2. and it cant turn on screen, that help - because XA2 not freeze, it just freeze power button - it not turn on/off screen, only by original case i can turn on screen and restart lipstick - it help.

and try to call to your phone when it freeze next time, maybe its just power button bug.

@toba Well that's weird. Did you check that the power and volume up buttons work, and that the phone's vibrate function works?

had to open it up again. this time it happend randomly. i got the orange led blinking and by trying to reboot i got stuck again...

this is really anoying. waited till xa2 got out of beta and payed 49€ to tie a license to this phone i flashed myself and have to open up now twice a day to use the phone...

not so usable....
