Sony Xperia Z is latest with lockscreen flaw

There are a lot of good things to talk about when it comes to the Sony Xperia Z, but right now, the lockscreen isn't one of them.

Yes, that's right, another lockscreen vulnerability, which seems to be plaguing an ever-growing number of premium smartphones right now. Although this is the first time the problem has been laid at Sony's door.

But the problem is similar to the one that the likes of the iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy S III have encountered. In this case, a series of keypad presses, which brings up a menu, then the right option and then…well, you're in.

You can see the video, which has been produced by Scott Reed, right here. We haven't tested it, but the video seems to show it working in a fairly straightforward way, which is likely to be something of a worry for Sony.

The company has yet to comment on the issue, but you suspect Sony is well aware of it. In fact, you would imagine a fix is at the top of someone's 'to do' list at Sony HQ this morning.

In the meantime, the advice is the same as for past phones with a similar problem. Don't leave your phone unattended for any length of time. You never know.
