Sony Smart Connect app updated (Adaptations for Android 5.0): Lollipop coming soon?

by XB on 18th December 2014

in Android, Firmware, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z3 series

Smart Connect_resultSony’s “Smart Connect” application has just received an update with the main changelog being “Adaptations for Android 5.0“. Now we don’t know what this means exactly, the UI is the same, so it’s likely to mean changes to the back-end, getting ready for Android Lollipop. This does highlight that we could start to see the update as soon as we hit 2015.

Sony Mobile’s Twitter account re-confirmed that the Xperia Z2 and Z3 series will be upgraded to Lollipop at the “beginning of 2015”, so hopefully all is on track. We have already seen Lollipop firmware builds being tested so it is probably a matter of weeks now. We’ll keep you posted.

Thanks Dean and Martin!

    That looks great! Also happy that they didn’t flaten the title bar, adds more depth to the UX this way.

    It’d be better if Sony skips 5.0 and goes straight for 5.1

  • S.A.E.E.D

    Can’t wait to see the Meterial Design on Sony’s apps :D

    Material Design FAIL!

  • Jazz

    What material design!? The round button alone does not make it material design!

  • Matthias

    It’s not really Material Design… only some elements of it.

    Most of the Material basics are missing, actually:
    1. The Action Bar does not have a solid color.
    2. The 3 lines on the far left of the Action Bar have the old Jelly Bean style.
    3. The Navigation Drawer does not overlay on top of the Action Bar.

    Apart from the Floating Action Button, the app is mostly Jelly Bean / KitKat style.
