in Android, Featured Content, Firmware, Xperia Z3 series


Screenshot_2015-03-16-10-23-21Android Lollipop is finally here. Firmware build 23.1.A.0.690 is currently rolling for the Xperia Z3 (D6603) across the Nordic and Baltic regions. We can confirm that Sony is rolling Android version 5.0.2 with the 3.4 kernel. If you have upgraded let us know your thoughts below.

New features include a new user interface based on Google’s Material Design, but with Sony retaining its “minimalistic approach to interface and application design”. There is also the new notification and lock screen, with fully customisable settings. Other features include multi user profiles/guest mode and the ability to move apps to SD card.

    Linux Kernel 3.10 will be used in 2015 devices. even Xperia E4 series have Android kitkat with Kerner 3.10 which is better than 3.4 in terms of performance and battery life. Sony will use the 3.10 for Xperia Z3 and below models if they push a Android 5.1 update

  • Micheal Archer

    The Z3v is a model for a “small market”, but I would imagine that the Sony software side of it is the same as the other Z3 models on the market. Then it’s up to Verizon to take that software, add a bunch of junk, test it on their network, and then send it to you. The only way to find out when that might be is to call Verizon and ask them (unless they have an online reference page for software updates like Rogers in Canada does).

  • So initial thoughts, I too got the Play Services
    notification notification but after I updated some apps it went away.

    You guys should let the SD card media scanner fully complete
    as it takes longer than the initial app optimisation. Once it’s done everything
    will be so smooth and lick :D

    Silent Mode is in Lollipop, nice! It has custom time ranges
    too.

    Google Keyboard needs its settings changed I think as the predicted
    words are off, I will tweak those later but so far everything is glorious. The animations
    are so smooth and it’s not like they weren’t smooth in 4.4.4 either. QuickPic
    can now edit SD card contents as can everything else.

    The moon, I am over it!

    Alright so I flashed the Nordic firmware and lost LTE connectivity. Not only am I unable to connect, but there isn’t even an option to in the mobile data settings. Going to try the Baltic firmware now to see if that makes a difference, but I won’t hold my breath. Otherwise, it’s definitely been worth the wait.

    did you get official update ? as your device is d5803, i think its not from india. is that true.? can you please xplain me how to do it?

  • khem ban

    ACTUALLY TO BE HONEST I FLASHED A BALTIC VERSION OF LOLLIPOP N ITS WORKING AWESOME

  • khem ban

    YEAH ….

  • drifter77

    Hmm… seems like there’s no end to the overheat, no software update will help. My Z3 Compact is the best phone I’ve owned but this heat issue sucks… the SD 801 and the back glass panel are a shitty combo…

  • subbu

    since it is a baltic vversion, did you face any issues with network including wifi?

  • khem ban

    Nobissues at alll

  • subbu

    Thanks bro…

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    sony promised 2 weeks. Well then “2 weeks” now is reduced to “4 days”, If lollipop doesn’t come in 4 days, then most likely there will be another 2 weeks, i am pessimistic

  • Tutulan Andrei

    So any news for the rest of the world? Nothing in Romania so far

  • Janith Pasindu Nanayakkara

    Guys please help me. i live in Sri Lanka, and yesterday i downloaded and flashed my sony xperia z3 (D6653) to android lollipop which was build for d6603 (customized baltic) using the xperifirm and flashtool. after i installed everything goes fine, device worked perfectly, but when i went to setting to see the device info, it was mentioned my phone model as d6603. but still lollipop ran ok on my device. then i switched off my device, and in the morning when i took my phone to start, it was hot, i wondered even i switched off how could it be so hot, phone booted and then wifi does not worked, then i realized something went wrong, and i switched off the device thinking to flash it to original kitkat version 4.4.4 build for d6653. in the evening when i came home i took the phone to flash, i tried to switch on the phone, it was completely dead, then i plugged it to the charger, and charging led indicator lit up in red color, after 15 mins time i pushed the power button to start the phone, but it does not start at all, now it’s completely dead, not booting at all, only led indicator lit up in red color and that’s all. what went wrong, can i recover my phone, what shall i do, please help me

  • Jonny Love

    Haven’t a clue mate, but if you take one thing away from this it’s “have a little patience”I have had these scares didn’t try it again

  • subbu

    Don’t worry mate…
    Your mobile can be recovered.
    Ok here is the solution for you.
    Now download the original 4.4 4 firmware or ftf for your d6653 of your country ( not any other countries). Charge your phone till the led turns to green. Now open the flashtool and load the ftf. Now connect your phone by pressing the volume down (-) button. Now your mobile is connected in flash mode. Now click the flash button on flashtool. And done.
    Now your mobile is recoverd.
    And if you wish you can reupdate your phone using pc companion. :)

  • Thomas Anderegg

    Can someone confirm this on Z3 (6603) with 23.1.A.0.690 firmware: lockscreen with pin locked, lockscreen notify active, double click on a message when displaying on lockscreen –> smartphone open without pincode, all functions open for everyone… it’s a security hole. Anybody with the same issue?

  • zackmc

  • rr

  • Brian Smith

  • Master X Junior

    I received the update for D6653 today. (India)
    Amazing UI. Totally loved it.
    Smooth and simple.
    THEY HAVE NOT REMOVED MANUAL OPTION IN CAMERA!

  • Niek van Wijk

    Just got it for my Z3 Compact in South Africa (last night 15 April after load shedding)

  • kaz

    Since updated this morning, mail stopped working!
    How to fix this? I’ve got z3 compact.

  • Sundar Mgs

    Hi I am using Xperia z3 in india after lollipop update audio output is less compare to kitkat

  • Dinakar Darsi

    Yes heating has been observed. This is more compared to that of kitkat’s.

    Even the mobile volume output has also become low.

  • Barry Gold

    That’s nice, but I’m still waiting for the update here on T-Mobile US. Between Sony and T-Mobile’s track record, I’m not holding my breath for any time soon.

  • Rian Schoeman

    don’t like it at all. The old UI was much easier. To unlock screen you now have to do 2 things. first unlock screen then your pattern lock. With old version you could pattern unlock directly from lock screen

  • Teddy Wetherby

    Any help out there . Me i own a Experia z3 my daughter owns a z1 we did the update 2 days ago to Android 5.02 and now the phones do not ring or give text notifications and I have checked and unchecked everything. Grr T-Mobile

  • Teddy Wetherby
