    I believe that those are bug fixes not the anticipated l
    Or it is just a release that won’t see the sun

  • Ritwij

    Hope this fixes the stamina mode and make it perfect like 4.3 (or the unnecessary overheating in standby)

  • Jeb

    Hope we’ll get app to sd feature…

  • techielover

    OFF TOPIC But Still a Thoughtful thing:: HOPE Sony will come back to profit again!!

  • Prince

    We’ll b getting z3 ui in this update most probably

  • Prince

    We vil get z3 ui most probably in this update

  • ShinOrochiX

    Yeah, you wish. It is a minor bug fix, most things will remain as they are the few bugs that are present may be fixed. If your lucky you’ll get the newer UI in Android 5.0, you should be grateful your on 4.4.4, the poor SP was ditched on 4.3.
    To this day I feel gutted with what Sony did to us SP users and will continue to rant on about it till I stop using the SP (probably mid next year). ;-)

  • RoberMC

    Umm, I don’t think so. Z3 ui is fw version 23.X.X.X.X.X. Only available for the Z2 and Z3

  • Berkay

    If they keep going in this way they won’t and i hope the won’t make any profit, Z2 got the Z3 apps but on the Z1 there is nothing but bugs not even “close all” i mean how this could be so hard?

    I’ll buy 3 Xperia Smartphones and an Xperia Tablet soon. Hope, this helps … ;-)

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    For that reason you think Sony doesn’t make profit ??? It is only the mid segment (which is the hurdle for all), and the pricing that Sony put on the devices this year(becoz to cover up the cost amount spent on marketing)……

    I hope the Sony vl back to the profitability by next year with the revised strategies…. and Happy to get the 5.0 on Z which we expect and overhaul change….

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    Don’t worry if it doesn’t happens, We, the Z users vl get the same UI which vl debut on Z3 next year with 5.0 and it vl be a refreshed UI as its the best opportunity for Sony…..

  • could this be lollipop?

  • Luís Alberto Pérez

    Maybe if you stop the criticism and use Google properly you could had already found the answer for your problem:

  • gmfady

    no fcors, its just a followup of the last upd. & not a radical 1, also Sony had declared officially that Lollipop will be arrived soon on early 2015 ..

  • Guest


  • In fact, only Sony Mobile had no profits. All other divisions have increased!

  • Ritwij

    The only chance of Z getting the Z3 UI is the Lollipop update.

  • Gaelex

    Looks like a minor update, perhaps some bug fixes.
    In other news, the latest google play and associated services eat a good third of my battery on Xperia Z. Yup, it’s bugged again.

  • Shehab Skull

    I really really hope that they will fix the dawn lag in the damn notification bar and will make our Z stonger as he was in 4.2.2 :|

  • luqman_98

    Mine were fine… I always use Greenify (+Xposed) to hibernate Google Play Services thingy and other system apps.

  • Luís Alberto Pérez

    No, you’re wrong. Samsung is also losing profit this year.

  • hendl

    he meant the sony divisions not oter manufacturers

  • Micha? Qban Kubacki
  • Killian Khoo

    I rather want a 5.0 UI from Z4 than get a Z3 UI on lolipop update >.<

  • Ahmed Ghorab

    I still haven’t got the last update and I’m still on 4.4.2. God damn I’m never going to buy phones from Three.

    Also did Sony remove those superb rounded corners in those new updates? I played with Z3 recently and I think they were squared.

  • Vitali

    Still waiting for the previous 10.5.1.A.0.283! – Xperia Tablet Z…

  • RoberMC

    Early 2015 for the Z3, then for the Z2, then for the Z1, Then for the Z Ultra… and looong afrer that… for the Z

    I wouldn´t expect to see Android 5.0 on the Z before Summer 2015.

  • RoberMC

    No, they are not squared.

  • RoberMC

    For me it is the newer Xperia Keyboard that is eating all resources, i just uninstalled all updates and everything returned to normal… I also installed the latest swiftkey which is much better than stock Sony’s anyway.

  • Ritwij

    That’s too much to ask for, buddy. I’m thankful to Sony that I’ll be getting Lollipop atleast. It’s already been 20 months since I got it, so maybe I’ll get a new phone before Sony actually starts rolling out Lollipop for Z. I’m saying this because many Z users would be doing the same as 2yrs is a long time for a tech savvy person and 64bit phones would be out by then (hopefully).

  • zam

    hope they fix the bluetooth and NFC problem -_- please

  • Nagsen Ravindra Kamble

    Hope, atleast this update solves the bluetooth bug introduced since the first update from 4.1 to 4.2 in my Sony Xperia ZR.

  • matticitt

    Still on 4.4.2 on my XZ. Fucking ridiculous.
