We are big fans of the Sony Xperia XZ3, but it's not perfect out of the box. You should spend some time adjusting the look of your new phone, creating shortcuts, and planning routines that suit you. We have a few suggestions to help you get started right here. These are the most important settings that you think should be optimized.
Customize Your Home Screen
Tap and hold an empty area on the Home screen. You can select a background image that suits you, select widgets and put links, but there is more. Try different transitions because they determine how the movement between the startup screens is animated when you swipe left or right. You can also resize the grid to determine how many icons are displayed, or to enter Home Settings and more specifically how icons are displayed and what should be displayed by default. [1
Too much blue light at bedtime may make it difficult to fall asleep, so most phones now have the ability to temporarily filter the blue light off the display. The XZ3 is no exception, as it offers a nightlight function.
We recommend setting Nightlight to turn it on and off automatically so you can forget it. Go to Settings> Display> Advanced and scroll down to Nightlight then tap Schedule and select certain hours or Turns off Sunset to sunrise on . It's available in your notification bar as a quick fix, so you can quickly turn it off if needed.
Customize your Quick Switches
Drag the notification screen down and tap the small pen icon in the lower right corner to edit the quick access screen that appears. You can tap and drag any icon to add or remove it from the Quick Settings panel, or to change the order.
Set Endurance Mode
You can extend the battery life of your Xperia XZ3 by using Sony endurance mode. Go to Settings> Battery> Endurance Mode select it and choose when it will start automatically. Normally, we set it to turn on when our battery reaches 15 percent.
Customize your lock screen
Go to Settings> Lock Screen and Security> Lock Screen Settings and you will find a treasure trove of handy options. You can decide what to do to wake up the screen, how the ambient display should work, how to display your own photos on the ambient ad, choose your preferred watch style, decide if music should show album art, and much more] Disable or uninstall Unwanted Apps
You do not want apps that you have not selected to use up system resources or space, so you should remove them immediately. Go to Settings> Apps & Notifications and tap View All Apps . If you see something you do not want to use, tap on it and select Uninstall or Disable .
Customizing Side Sense or Shutting Down
Side Sense lets you tap on the side of your XZ3 and triggers a quick-access bar of frequently-used apps, some quick-changes, and keyboard shortcuts for things like one-handed operation. If you look in Settings> Display> Advanced> Side Sense you will find the option to turn it on and off.
If you want to redirect, we recommend that you adjust the sensitivity You can choose which apps and games you want to use and do not show, and all of this is an option in this Side Sense menu.
Setting up data limits
You can set alerts and fixed data limits You know when your data volume is running low and you can avoid exceeding it. Go to Settings> Network & Internet> Data Usage> Data Alert & Limit . You can choose the data cycle in which you want to set the levels at which you want to receive a warning, or even set a hard limit to ensure that you do not exceed your permissions.
Try Dynamic Vibration and then turn it off
If you look into Settings> Sound, you will find the option Dynamic Vibration . Turn it on and it vibrates when you play music, video or games. It's supposed to boost immersion, which we think is games, but not so much for movies and music. If you tap the louder or louder button, you'll see  Dynamic Vibration, a separate slider next to the volume knob, which you can tweak the intensity level or turn it off altogether.
Setting up a Do-It-Yourself Plan
You should not answer messages in the middle of the night, or wonder why your phone screen is flashing when you drift off to sleep. So set up some automatic downtime if your Xperia XZ3 does not bother you. Go to Settings> Sound> Do Not Disturb and search for Automatically turn on under Schedule . Choose the hours that suit you and enjoy the tranquility.
