    How can Branded Phones Get Updates Faster Than UnBraned One’S ?!
    Shouldn’t their Branded bloatware slow them down ?!

  • QBerto

    There are frimmwares that are just to branded phones, Sony give the update before, carriers customize and then there’s a release….

  • Samuel

    my mom says they’re special

  • HardyHarHar

    Because it’s an update for branded phones only. Look at the pattern of sony firmware releases. Everytime a firmware is first released on a carrier specific phone it doesn’t get any global release while an update released on a country specific phone get’s a global release.

    The Xperia Z1 get a excellent threament from sony since it was relaese last year it get almost updates every mounth but i ask my selv what about the xz2 here sony struggles with updates theire has nt been that many the last update 314 is nothing is nothing to write home about maybe becourse of the upcomming z3 i just hope that sony after the release of z3 in late september go on with updating the zx2 course its still an excellent phone and it is only few mounth old

  • grav1ty

    you are definitely wrong! There has been many global FW updates on sony phones including Z and Z1, where many carrier devices in several countries got the update first. For example: The last update for Xperia Z was JB 4.4.2, in Germany, the rollout started for T-Mobile devices first, then Vodafone… Generic “unbranded” Germany device got the update more than 1month later..

    What do we learn about this ? -> It’s a Sony thing, not a carrier thing. In most cases, Carrier slow their updates just because of their own Soft(bloat)ware, but they also get it weeks before to prepare it..
    However, generic devices should always get global updates first, but they do not on Sonys rollout-procedure

  • Robson Kanyama

    Guys what’s new in this update?

  • MAlnaser

    Iam new at the Sony mobile just moved from the s2… So are we going to get this update internationaly?

  • Gerard

    because I just installed it, I can tell you now it uses android runtime time (ART) instead of Dalvik

  • Roger Carp

    Ever since I had my first Sony, t300, k600, k850, xperia s and now xperia z1, I always got random reboots. I thought it would stop as the phones got more “smart” and more expensive.. But no sir. Just keeps happening.
    One good software version in this life? Bug free, no crashes, no lag no reboots.
    I would pay for it

  • YuuriAyano

    Are you sure?

  • Gerard

    Yes I am because with the nexus 4 when i changed the runtime, when I booted the phone it said optimizing application 1 of 75, and when I booted up the xperia z1 it said the same: optimizing application 1 of 95

  • vlad

    Everytime after installing an update the phone is optimizing applications… Do not talk unless you know. No phone outside nexus series doesn t have ART. Our xperia devices (mine z1) will doesn t have the ART runtime until Android L, when the main runtime will be art and Dalvik will not exist anymore on Android L. Read/learn about android before saying nonsense words. ;)

  • vlad

    No phone outside nexus series have ART.* i was wrong sorry.
