There are many ways to adjust the settings of a smartphone, but the most functional is to use the engineering menu. Almost all Android phones have access to it, and the Sony Xperia line of gadgets, which offers to adjust many different components through this interface, is no exception.

You can get into it by entering a special code, which for each line of devices, as a rule, is unique. Access to the Sony Xperia engineering menu can be obtained as follows:

  1. Open the Phone application on the number entry screen.
  2. Enter the code *#*#7378423#*#* and press the call button.

The result will be the emergence of a fairly simple menu of three sections. All interface points have English notation, so if you are not too familiar with the language, it is better to work with a dictionary or an online translator. Having prepared well, through the engineering menu you can implement a number of useful settings and tests:

  • change screen resolution
  • adjust the accelerometer,
  • increase volume
  • check the sound of each of the headphones,
  • test the real parameters of the rear and front cameras,
  • change the settings of wireless networks (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC),
  • adjust and test other parameters.

It is worth noting that, starting with the Xperia Z3, the line of Sony smartphones received an additional code:

*#*#4636#*#*

After entering it, the user will see a menu where you can make several minor settings. Otherwise, it is intended to provide information about the characteristics of the smartphone and system parameters.

Work with the engineering menu of Sony Xperia - the ability to optimize the smartphone in accordance with its actual capabilities and user needs. But it is worth remembering that you need to change the settings carefully, otherwise it can lead to damage to the device.
