    Too many lollipop news today, my feels can’t handle it :D

  • lucasakakarl

    We need refined camera software! Most of the other flagship phone uses sony sensors but in term of camera software, sony still lagging behind :(

  • Reen

    Woah the new Calendar looks sweet :D

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Guess what. It’s never happening bro

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Ah they took ages to release the software because they were making this advertisement lol.
    I guess this ad was in the work from January to March.

  • Jaissal S

    I can’t wait! for my Z1 to get the update. So it looks like Walkman will be Music? The Calender does look cool. I hope my lock screen wallpaper bug on the Z1 gets fixed. Otherwise I’ll mave to factory reset after update.

  • jordan hulett

    Any xperia z3v news? When are we getting the update!!!?

  • Did you see that attachment menu that slid in from the left? Beautiful!
    Full screen album art in lock screen! Wohoo!

    But,
    1. I wanted background-less buttons like the Google Keyboard
    2. I think the list item size is too big in settings. We see way less content now in one screen.

  • roeshak

    Well so long as they fix the blown out highlights problem with lollipop on the z2,I’ll be OK with that. They already fixed it on z3 with forget 4.4.4 updates because the z3 had the same problem at launch. In fact 4.4.4 made it worse so hoping to see the same fix for the z2 in 5.0.
    I don’t and will never use auto settings so my gripes with the camera are not as bad as yours lol

  • Clarence Alvarado

    Nice Music lockscreen happening! :D

  • Jaissal S

    The teal looking app…is that email or message? I like the look of that :)

  • Reen

    Slide in fromt the left? You mean the keyboard? That´s not new, but maybe more fluid now :D

  • Cvcv Cheringal

  • Tomislav Mati?

  • SHITTY

    HOOHOOHOOHOOOOOO… HOEEEHEEHEEEEEEE..!!!!!

  • Tjaldid
  • Snorky112

    pls no

  • Andrea

    wow!

  • KKKZXC_LY

    I feel glad to see that those applications data can move to SD-Card without root permission. It’s back XD

  • Snorky112

    it’s not lagging behind it’s just that the sensor is different, larger, if you compare a sony picture and a samsung or iphone, there is more space in the Sony picture because it has larger “sight”, so it needs more light, and can’t make the same level of detail. but quality is still great, so stop whining.

  • Tomislav Mati?

  • Reen

    The look of the keyboard is slightly updated in Lollipop

  • Clarence Alvarado

    Woah. Ugly walkman card right there in the lockscreen! :(

  • parental92

    look at the dialler , between the number, there is a line separating them, instead of clean looks

  • xperiaDROID

    Okay. Thanks, man!

  • Tomislav Mati?

    PIN screen

  • Tomislav Mati?

    Only design changes.

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    Tomislave, zar je vec stigao u Hrvatsku? TO JE FANTASTICNO!

  • Tomislav Mati?

    Video will be soon

  • lucasakakarl

    do you know all of these can be fix tru software? don’t be a typical fan boy, be a smart users.

  • Nguy?n T?n L?c

    Oh cool so there is a camera shortcut in the lockscreen, does it still have the fancy animation?
    Is that small icon in the upper left corner of dialer is the shortcut to contact? And contact still doesn’t have a shortcut to dialer?
    Is there still some place in the setting where the text on the action bar is black instead of white (like in the preview in MWC)?

  • Dexter Moregan

    You’re gonna kill me after saw this video,Sony. Please release Lollipop to Z2 right now!!!!!

  • Pingback: Xperia Z3 y Xperia Z3 Compact empiezan a recibir Lollipop desde hoy | Perusmart()

  • Nguy?n T?n L?c
  • Tomislav Mati?

    Yes. That is shortcut for Contacts.
    I don’t see any black text.

  • Ivan Cerovski

    Lollipop will be released in two weeks time from today here in Croatia, Xperia care was really helpfull, cant wait :)

  • Ivan Cerovski

    Ja sam upravo zvao Xperia Care hrvatski, i rekli su da kod nas stize kroz dva tjedna update, kaj isto nije lose, i to prvo krece za z3 i za z3 compact, a ja imam z3 :DD

  • Marlish

    This guy needs more upvotes :D

  • Tomislav Mati?

    Here is video of Android 5.0.2
    http://youtu.be/YuFg4dWtyo8

  • Nguy?n T?n L?c

    Oh thanks :) Contact doesn’t have a shortcut to Dialer feel like a bit retarded mistake from developers at Sony to me

  • echomrg

    i’m sad. still no update here (italy)

    anyone noticed anything wrong with the new version? i can’t believe it’s 100% bug free…

  • echomrg

    why don’t you use the actual google keyboard?

  • Tomislav Mati?

    Nije. Kažu za dva tjedna. Flashao sam nordijski firmware i kad do?e za našu regiju taj ?u tad flashati.

  • I am :P

  • Tomislav Mati?

    It is not retarded because if you tap on contact you can call it. If you go back you are on dailer again.

  • Ates

    Tomislave da li mozes uslikat grafiku kod dolaznog poziva? Hvala punoooo!

  • Tomislav Mati?

    Evo za pozive.
    I nema profila samo vibracija za dolazne pozive i obavijesti ve? se mora tipkama smanjiti zvuk da se do?e do samo vibracije.

  • Dion

    Go and ask sony if you can work for them maybe you can change something

  • Reen

    Looks beautiful

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Haha I was just telling the truth bro. Remember the time when we had X10i lol, that was the waiting, I think I waited for more than 6 months to receive GB LOL. This time only 4 months :P

  • Deckard_Cain

    Install Nova. I already use it like that. :P

  • Kunal Shukla

    move apps to sd card yayyy!!!

  • Ates

    E vala kapa dole hvala ti do neba punoooo!

  • Marlish

    See Sony improved xD
    and the best part is they are releasing 5.0.2 and not 5.0. Again smart move by them :)

  • shubham

    question.. has it affected battery life?

  • [S]unjay

    Sony has the best Android skin around.

  • [S]unjay

    No, that is just terrible.

  • Tomislav Mati?

    We will see it in few days.

  • Tomislav Mati?

    Yes it has the best skin. Second is HTC.

  • Tomislav Mati?

    Yes it is ugly. Old Walkman lockscreen widget was way more beautyfull.

  • Oriba-Chan

    What about the Z3 Tablet?

  • Messup7592

    Thanks for this vidéo ! Lollipop looks smooth :-)

  • ????????? ??????

    Video of the Lollipop on Tablet Z3 they posted and firmware are not. Facepalm, Sony are complete idiots.

  • Nguy?n T?n L?c

    But like for example if I’m go to Contact first, and want to go to dialer, can I do something other than back to homescreen and select dialer?

  • Tomislav Mati?

    I didn’t notice any bug yet. Maybe it has some bugs but I can’t see it.

  • SM

    you too mate..you too

  • aimfail

    So when are we going to see version 5.1 !!!

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Yep in time I hope they’ll make sure to release software updates fast. It’s a good move to update Z2 right after Z3’s update.

  • Kima

    Tomislave, znam da je rano za neki sud o tome, ali da li ti se ?ini da je poboljšano trajanje baterije?

  • Tomislav Mati?

    U stanju mirovanja sam primijetio da je trajanje baterije bolje. Sad od oka nije nešto strašno bolje ali je bolje. Sad na AnAndroidu 5.0.2 ne vidim iznenadnih trošenja baterije kao na drugom Androidu 4.4.4.

  • Kima

    Hvala najlepše na odgovoru :) p.s. gasi chrome, pali dolphin browser :D Pozdrav

  • Tomislav Mati?

    Namjeravam. Samo sad isprobavam koji je preglednik prijatelj baterije.

  • bee

    Hi, I got the latest update and noticed on the video (if that’s what i saw)that there’s still an option to move the next track for music even if your phone is locked however in my case after the update there’ s no more option to move tracks while the phone is locked…can someone help me figure it out? Thanks
