Questions and Answers

How do I change resolution of my photos?

Since an update I can't change it on Sony zl

If you were using a native, built in app to change your photo's resolution, you might want to consider using a third party app now to do the editing. You Xperia ZL runs on Android OS and you can install a photo editing app like this one from the Play Store:
