    Please, care to like if you want to see Sony Nesux smartphone

  • Nils Westhoff

    HNGGGG. My body is ready!

  • Tim Rox Westerholm

    Wow I’m so excited! :-D

  • Tim Rox Westerholm

    Xperia Z, ZR, ZL owners, early next year ;-) (haha I’m just kidding, I want lollipop for my Xperia Tablet Z 4G also) :-)

  • Amimanot

    Oh man… Was hoping that sony would atleast wait till 5.1 is released b4 updating the z series considering that lollipop in its current state is full of bugs

  • Tim Rox Westerholm

    Depends how Sony developed

  • Amimanot

    Well hopefully what you said will be true, don’t want my phone to be stuck in a bootloop after updating due to a memory leak in the boot animation binary (currently a fairly common bug in lollipop)

  • messup

    Brace yourself

  • -Simone-

    Can i flash Lollipop firmware with locked bootloader?

  • Come on Sony ! Other manufacturer already release Lollipop for their flagship device last month. I really hope the wait for it is worth it .

  • Simo

    trovato! Ahah comunque si

  • -Simone-

    Perfetto,quindi appena uscirà lo scarico con Xperia Firmware Downloader,poi spacchettamento in formato TFT e flash con Flashtool..?
    Comunque ormai gli update delle altre app le avremo direttamente con Lollipop credo.

  • Simo

    Probabile ma non credo,comunque io scarico il firmware direttamente da xda e flasho con flashtool

  • -Simone-

    Ahhh…Se esce direttamente su XDA meglio.
    Sony non agisce come Google che rilascia le Factory no?
    Dobbiamo aspettare che qualcuno faccia il backup del proprio aggiornamento..

  • Simo

    Boo con gli Z3 non mi sembra, con quelli precedenti si,vabbe io comunque faccio tutto da xda così come ho fatto quando usavo il ray

  • name

    They have hided it now. It is not possible to list it anymore :

    Finally some news!

  • a.hamameh

    Can you share the link please?

  • inspire

    Well, you have an option of not updating and wait till you get the report of everything working smoothly.
    But at least this will stop the nagging of all those users who want Lollipop so desperately (for whatever reasons, despite of it being buggy).

  • Jaissal S

    I suppose that the update for the Z1 will start rolling a little later than this month. I’m guessing any time from March.

  • shhh

    5.0 update comes out: “WHERES MY 5.1 UPDATES SANY HURRDURR”

  • xperia

    Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck sony!

  • roeshak

    You don’t have to update do you. You can wait for 5.1 if you want to.
    Why should Sony delay the release of an update that’s been rolling out to other brands for weeks now. They’re in a very competitive market you know. One in which they’re struggling as it is!

  • roeshak

    Mmmmmh not so sure. Roll out to z3 and z2 series will probably commence late Feb /early March and continue throughout March. My best bet for older models would be from April onwards.

  • Jerry Berglund

    this months aint over. Usually Sony release software (Sony Ericsson did too) in the end of a month. Usually never in the beginning of a month. So there is stilla week left on february. So There is still a chanse that it will be rolling out next week. And it should be interesting to see if Three in sweden is among the first, because of their special deal with Sony to be their head testing operator for Lollipop. So Sweden migh be the first one. But sure. Their could be problems and snags in software that could delay the thing. But Sony usually keep their plans. End of february is probably still true.

    The time of truth is near… will they open up Camera API2 or not….

  • mUSICA

    an those other manufactures fans aint enjoyn lolipop if u can see it, so many complains of ppl wantng to revert back to kitkat, so its better sony takes its time to fix n update new patches

  • You are wrong. My friends Note 3 and M8 is pretty good on Lollipop, smooth and stable. The animation is fluid and battery life is good.

    and your kitkat is pretty good too, smooth and stable too, so what’s the point ?

  • Sam Albalushi

    When my zr taste the lollipop

  • Nope, overheating problem always occur.

  • a.hamameh

  • Ditu Vlad

    Come on Lollipop for Z2!!

  • Jaissal S

    I am in the UK. For the Z1, I believe that the roll out will start after that of Z3 and Z2 right? So maybe from end of March.

  • Jaissal S

    Yeah I think that us Z1 owners will get the update from late March/April.

  • doraemonboi

    Lollipop update doesn’t make up phone or tablet run cooler.

  • W. Jurewicz

    No I’m just saying we finally have some sign of movement! Although I checked on the wi-fi alliance website and I can’t find that WFA54677 certification. Did that chinese website fake it to get traffic?

    Sony is slow in their updates.
    If z3 updates comes now what it will for t3.

  • jonyah

    The reason to wait is so they could be spending their time working on 5.1 now and not later. By bringing a buggy update, they delay a proper one.

    They will not be releasing 5.1 anytime soon Bro. That you can bet your house on

  • Snorky112

    why give z3 for s6… such a shame

  • so where

    I miss my fingerprint reader and my camera quality. Plus i miss having choices in accessories. Companies really only produce cases and stuff for Sammy and Apple.

  • MarkG54321

    Wifi tablets first, as they don’t need cell network certification. Z2 Tablet, Z3 Tablet, Z3 Compact Tablet.

    As early as next week

    what is this?

  • Snorky112

    because everyone buys shitty overpriced phones they see on TV ads, I always had sony phones and always found accessories, + camera quality is better in Z3 than S5, (only note 4 is better), +better battery, better design, I also don’t like the fingerprint scanner (prefer apple’s touchID) you should wait for next Motorola instead, I think this will beat others, Samsung is really, really bad

    the new UI and better battery

  • Niels d. G.

    Movies app update with Lollipop icon rolls out, not much changed inside the app. For now they’ve kept the transparant menu with the blur effect, which I think looks much nicer than the flat gray menu in the Walkman app.

  • Niels d. G.

    Let’s skip 5.0 and wait for 5.2.

  • me

    It looks like a M$ thing!

    I’m not updating to Lollipop if it does come to the Z3 Compact.

    Whichever phone I upgrade to in the Summer will have it, anyway.

  • shhh

    It’s vanilla Lollipop for Android TV.

  • Ballsack

    Where is my fucking lollipoop?

  • so where

    Well i refuse to believe the Z3 takes better pictures than the S5. Sony imo has ALWAYS had great cameras poor pictures. Hell my old S4 could at least trump the Z2. Samsung has never been “really, really bad”, at least for me. Theyve always had great hardware, removable batteries, sd card support, quick updates, great cameras and great screens. Tbh the only issue in my book was the software. So yeah I wil gladly go S6 this year. And yeah Note4 camera blows evvvverything out of the water.

  • Raj Singh

    That would take way too long. I’m sure they’ve been working on 5.0 for a while now. They should put it out as scheduled and then release an incremental update…

    Looks like Sony is replacing, for the Xperia Z3, the silver green color by the purple one – at least in France and the UK on the online Sony store.
    Not enough demand for the green version ?…

    Why not wait till June for v5.5? The wait is not an issue if it’s the same for everyone. Google was meant to make new version updates faster; so far it has been anything but…

    I don’t see any certificate whatsoever

    When will get z3 dual lollipop update

  • Jerry Berglund

    Ok. Now it is wednesday, and still no Update in sight. Sure its two days left, because it will certainly never be released on a weekend. But now I am actually wondering if the update is belated? Sony hasnt informed or anything?

  • Aze

    Any official date yet for lollipop on the Z2 tablet wifi version (castor_windy)?

  • Richard Lower

    How can I avoid lollipop. It killed my Nexus. It was a nightmare. I don’t want it full stop.

  • Dennisch

    Will we get 5.1 for the Z2? Because due to some silly mistakes in 5.0 I will not update my Z2 to Lollipop.
    No silent mode? Really, Google?
