    Zooming with two fingers on Sony Xperia™
SP
    • Place two fingers on the screen at once and pinch them together (to zoom out) or spread them apart (to zoom in).
    TipWhen you use two fingers on the screen to zoom, it is only possible to zoom if both fingers are within the zoomable area. If you, for example, want to zoom in on a photo, make sure that both fingers are within the photo frame area.

    • To scroll more quickly, flick your finger in the direction you want to go on the screen. You can wait for the scrolling movement to stop by itself, or you can stop it immediately by tapping the screen.

    Sensors

    Your device has sensors that detect both light and proximity. The light sensor detects the ambient light level and adjusts the brightness of the screen accordingly. The proximity sensor turns the touch screen off during voice calls when your ear is close to the screen. This prevents you from unintentionally activating other functions on your device when you are engaged in a call.
