+Jaime Aleman Yes, as I mentioned I have to use PIN because of my working email and it is set in Settings. But unfortunately there is another lock screen (probably from Sony) that cannot be disabled. And one more issue. When I wake my phone now and it´s still locked I cannot see any notification (unread emails, messages,... nothing) untill I unlock the phone. In my case it means go through 2 lock screens, one by swipe and the other one with pin. Pretty annoying.

Omigosh, I'm finally back after a small hiatus. I was injured for a bit but starting to get back on track. What better than a 8 x 800 Yasso workout to jumpstart!? I started a little fast but settled into the proper pace.

Testing it this Tenergy Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 universal charger on the Z3 Compact. It's crazy fast. The green light indicate it's charging at 2.0 speeds. Obviously, it requires charging via the microUSB port to again the high speeds otherwise it defaults to normal. I'll report more later once my battery is depleted.

+Victor Chen Thank you for the link. Actually I have never heard of the Qualcomm Charge technology, not even the first version let alone ver 2.0. Haven't come across any blog reviews of chargers using this charging technology before.
None of the smartphone vendors in my area have ever mentioned of the Qualcomm Quick Charge or sell AC adaptors with this technology. 😐

A last minute 10K (LA Cancer Challenge) to support a friend's family member after last week's 1/2 marathon. A surprising 1st place in my age group with a time of 44:07 (20:55 @ 5K). Both my old age PRs. ^_^

21/441 peeps.

I watched this. Incredible. Hopefully they will make something like this since Papa Lucas has let anybody take a stab.

Taken solely with Z3 Compact and automagically made with Google+. I only used intelligent auto 1080p 30fps plus a selfie stick. The weird zoom at the end was caused by the phone mount accidentally pressing the volume button causing too much zoom (I forgot to suitable that). Overall, I'm pretty happy!

Most of it was handheld with no accessory. On a few shots I used a cheap selfie stick that had a spring-based clamp. Nothing fancy.

Nice, they have it running on all the flagships Z1, Z2, and Z3 already! I am pretty sure this trickles down to Z1c and Z3c. Can't wait!

Don't get me wrong. I'm waiting for the official release since I use a lot of the Xperia functionality. It's just nice to see that their actively working on it and the performance looks pretty good. Lollipop should hopefully unleash unlocked potential in our existing devices.

My Nillkin 9H tempered glass protector finally arrived and it's a perfect fit and it protects the entire screen with no weird cutouts. It feels nice and smooth and is a lot more smudges compared to the cheap 4H pet based protector I had on previously.

I've been coming here for about 15 years now. Pastrami is voluminous, tasty and never over salted. While some people say it's pricey. I disagree since you're essentially getting two sandwiches for the price.

The food and service here is first rate. Probably the best service I've ever received at a Chinese restaurant. EVER. (Note: I'm Chinese) Get the pepper crab no matter what. Also, the desserts served over the bubbling green globes were also very very tasty.
