What do you mean? You access to the power menu by holding down the power key.


Nope it doesn't work that way for Xperia 1IV. You have to press power button and up volume button inorder to bring up the power/restart menu.

Yes, and it was a bit of a pain. Power+VolUP and Power+VolDown gave two separate menus.

Now long pressing the Power Button opens Google Assistant. Not sure if it's customisable or not.

Ah, right. Long press gives me Google Assistant, but if I go to System / Gestures / Power Menu, it can be turned off. There is also a Jump to Camera option for double-press to activate camera.

Solved the "mystery":
Go to settings----system----gestures----power menu. From here you can customize the long press of the power button. I've always had the "power menu" instead of the google assistant. It was so strange that you had to push 2 buttons at the same time....(like an hard reset lol).

Yeah, it seemed like overkill, just to restart the phone. I also turned off the, 'Wake up display on keypress' option, allowing me to adjust the volume without unlocking the phone.

Still has strange bugs though. Like, if I'm watching a video on Twitter, if I press the 'like' button it mutes the volume.

Sony CES 2023 has come and gone.

Looks like the Sony Xperia IV still has a long and healthy life ahead.

It still seems pretty new. There's always Mobile World Congress, although I can't remember the last time Sony launched a new phone there.

I don't think so. I was able to change the LED colour in WhatsApp so maybe it's app specific.

So, I needed to shoot a video that was small enough to send via gmail. I miss the option to choose at a lower res. Now i have to use a compressor. This phone has 4 12MP cameras.
