    Answer a few quick questions to evaluate your visit.

    Using the touchscreen

    View all topics

    A protective plastic sheet is attached to the screen of your phone when you buy it. You should peel off this sheet before using the touchscreen. Otherwise, the touchscreen might not function properly.

    When your phone is on and left idle for a set period of time, the screen darkens to save battery power, and locks automatically. This lock prevents unwanted actions on the touchscreen when you are not using it. You can also set personal locks to protect your subscription and make sure only you can access your phone content.

    NoteYour phone screen is made from glass. Do not touch the screen if the glass is cracked or shattered. Avoid trying to repair a damaged screen yourself. Glass screens are sensitive to drops and mechanical shocks. Cases of negligent care are not covered by the Sony warranty service.

    Sensors

    Your device has sensors that detect proximity. 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.
