Is there a way to search loaded music after drag & drop in the Z?

By the way, I thought you have sent your Z for replacement by warranty already. Don't you have an issue with volume? :-)
The max volume with either it being active or not is almost the same. And it ain't actually bad.

Getting tired of the Z.

 

Browsing on Deviantart always causes the device to freeze, anyone know the command to force the device off?

I have the same problems with the Z.  The F is much faster given the same hardware specs.  Not quite sure why.  Though I have more apps loaded on the Z.

The firmware update is trash, SONY always does this..  They do not fully test their firmware before release, and stop supporting the device.

 

They killed the reception on my C902 phone with an update.  Never released a fix for it, and its pretty much locked down..

 

They should really keep their bootloaders unlocked, tired of this schiit

LOL! And I thought the Z was a Walkman music player! cool.gif

DeviantART has the slowest page refresh on most mobile devices. Why you'd waste time trying to view that site on a mobile size screen is completely beyond me. Poorly written websites with bad Java scripts is hardly Sony's fault.

Let's be fair. As a music player, the Z is just fine. As a web browser, it's streets in front of iBasso DX100, but miles behind devices designed for web browsing.

Whenever I delete songs in Poweramp, although I can't play the file anymore, it still appears in the Walkman so I have to manually delete it in the Z. Is there anyway to resolve this?

Rebuild database?

There is that option somewhere in the menus, but if you restart the device, it automatically rebuilds the database.

Why even design the Z for android then?  Why the 4.5" screen?

Any image-heavy site will crash the Z.  My Nokia N95 will fare better in this regard

Because Android provides some nice extensions to its music player features and allow music streaming services to be used... All of which the Z seems at home with. Lets get things in perspective here. It is a music player first and foremost. If you want a browser, buy a tablet. Even my Xperia Z with a 5 insh screen is a terrible browser.

For the C902 you can install an old working firmware. Not quite difficult. Try checking out www.se-nse.net for that. And sorry for the off-topic post people.

Ah, last time I checked (awhile ago!) this wasn't documented.  Thanks, its too bad my Nokia 808 arrives today.  Haven't had a good camera phone since my C902.

P.S. Not that I'm not happy with my actual setup, the X1050 sounds way better than my Audigy X-Fi Xtreme GAMER FPS sound card (more details, treble is more realistic, better mids, better soundstage, etc), but the more extended treble in the F appeals to me as I'm a treble-head. And more soundstage depth and width is always welcome. Oh, and looking forward to try BBE PRO in it (yes, the same technology used in Cowons).
Tell me about what kind of program do you say? Bbe sonic?

Tell me you tested your "z" I want to know this application is able to "turn up the volume," I want to know for sure before I will pay money for using this app!

You're late with the answer, I already bought this app and again no luck!
