Xperia Z2 D6502 LollipopSony Mobile has confirmed that the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop firmware update has now widened for the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet.  Crucially, Xperia Z2 HSPA+ D6502 owners see Lollipop for the first time and is currently available in India,  Middle East, Latin America, Singapore,  USA, Ukraine and Vietnam. As always,  Sony  says the rollout is phased so keep an eye out for a notification.


Thanks Ali, Ritwij and Session20!

  • Not in India yet :(

  • Kiwison

    Sony Mobile hasn’t even replied my mail about Z3 update in the UK :(

  • XperiaBlog

    It is available through XperiaFirm.

  • aryan1357

    same no ota or companion notification

  • bordz24

  • Szabolcs Orbán

    Z1?

  • Carlos W. H. Sun

    Z3

  • Rahul Kumar

    Means currently not available through OTA

  • Camilo

    I check every single day twice for my update. I’ve got the Z3 D6653. But still, if the update is Lollipop 5.1, I would feel that it was worth the waiting.

  • Snorky112

    it has been certified so it wont take long, I think in 2-3weeks when 5.0 rollout has ended for all devices they put 5.1 for z3 only

  • Sweggity

    Those who are whining not getting the update just flash it via flashtool.

  • Alexander Paramonov

    waiting for z1 compact

  • jag

    So next week… Z1, Z1 Compact and Z Ultra!

  • Constantine

    I was waiting 1 month for 4.4.4, so…

  • Szabolcs Orbán

    Why next week? Why do I have to wait a week to release an update? Fuck Sony!

  • Nt.AFC

    What I have Z3 Singapore but still don’t have any update

  • Szabolcs Orbán

  • Wrestler Kishore Cena

  • jag

    Well.. Assuming the z2 phased rollout will take all the days of the week. We can only assume it will start as early as next week. Just a wild guess.

  • Wrestler Kishore Cena

    Did you get update in india?

  • Muhammad Hassan

    WTF

    Xperia Z2 Lollipop update is rollingout now

  • ali

    If the update doesn’t show up in the update center on your phone, try to update it through your computer. I didnt get any notification for update for my z2, but when I connected it to the computer, a notification for SONY PC Companion showed up, telling me to update to lollipop. My firmware is the Middle East one, so I believe it should be out in most of the markets. So guys check the update through SONY pc companion.

    Connect your device to Sony PC companion. You will be able to update your Z2.

  • Guest

    xperia. get 77$/Hourly by doing this.’-‘. < i started working online, completing some basic jobs that only requires from you a computer and internet access and I am happier than ever… It's been 6 months since i started this and i got paid so far total of 36,000 bucks… Basicly i profit close to 80 bucks/h and work for 3-4 hrs most of the days.Best part to whole this thing is that you can decide when to work yourself and for how long and you get a paycheck at the end of each week.

  • Andre Lemard

    Well I’ve never heard of a OS that is totally bug free. I mean look what happened when Samsung updated the S5 to lollipop. Bugs are going to happen and Sony will probably patch it in another update.

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    There’s no “Clear All” option on Lollipop :)

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    That’s good for you! I’m from Croatia, still waiting for an update. Can you please tell me if you have saw any bugs in update?

  • doministry

  • Samuel

    On what firmware? I’m on the customized US and it doesn’t have it, neither X-Reality or super vivid because it lacks 4 files.

  • Samuel

    4 tiny files are missing. X-Reality and Super vivid modes are available to choose from, but they do nothing; and you can’t do anything to fix it because you can’t root Lollipop.

  • jxPerience

    yeah my concern also, i though because i hide my google bar on home screen it will affect the task manager but when i show the google bar still there is no google bar on task manager and no close all button. What happened? Is April Fools not yet done?

  • jxPerience

    yeah the same, mostly in MEA region

  • Samuel

    Its only on Indian firmware AFAIK. I flashed it and there it Is, Im trying to port it to my D6503

    The only annoying thing I found so far is the missing ‘close all’ button in recent apps. Weird because some people have it

  • Sweggity

    What’s the size of it?

    Get the version 2 this one looks ugly.

  • Sweggity

    It’s not clear all it’s pinning.

  • Sweggity

    Does X reality works?

  • bordz24

    Well its there

  • Gábor Kertész

    Nope, there isn’t

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    This “Close All” buttton is as ugly as hell. even if i had it i will definitely disable it once i have root and modify systemui.apk to make it less annoying. Z3 owner here

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    This “Close All” buttton is as ugly as hell. even if i had it i will definitely disable it once i have root and modify systemui.apk to make it less annoying. Z3 owner here.

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    all of your apps (no matter on SD or memory) will stay after upgrade. Although no guarantee that your apps will work as required

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    i suggest you put this problem on sony’s forum.

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    long pressing vol-down button will set your phone to vibration

  • Mayank Trehan

    you upgaded your device……does the apps stayed after the update?

  • ash_k29

    Great :D Thanks a ton :)

  • People do you recommend a factory reset after the update??? or its not necessary???

  • Basheer Hadi

    done the update here in uae and after update done the factory reset, I m happy working fine thanks to sony

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    depending on whether you faced bugs or not after update. However, the recommendation is to reset BEFORE the update

  • Basheer Hadi

    but there is no close all button here in UAE

  • Zidhin Mohd

    Yes

  • Before? Why before not after? Also do you recommend to wait and update over wifi or using PC companion? They say wifi is better.

  • Is it necessary to do a factory reset?

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    yes. However, i have to reset my phone because some of my apps was incompatible afterwards

  • Mayank Trehan

    ohh thanks man :)…….but do you have any idea about the “OTA” update.?

  • Mayank Trehan

    n please do let me know about your user experience about the new upgrade.

  • Mayank Trehan

    you are in China?

  • malaya madara

    but builtin sinhala language has been removed from z2 5.02 what a shame sony

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    because if you not reset before update, then you basically bring all of your (potentially incompatible) apps to the new OS,
    EDIT: It is also called “dirty” update

  • Akhil G

    This seems strange.
    Even I have the button.

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    languages are hidden only, not removed. I am sure you can reactivate it after you have root

  • Mayank Trehan

    so…..give us your feedback Yogendra ?
    How are you feeling after the update?

  • malaya madara

    android 5.0 suppose to have builtin sinhala language. but no sinhala language in settings. why is that

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    languages are hidden only, not removed. I am sure you can reactivate it after you have root.

  • Mayank Trehan

    tell me one thing….the 3rd party apps (like Whatsapp,BBM) you had in your device on 4.4.4 are they still there after the update through PC Companion…….or they got uninstalled automatically?

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    why do you think so?

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    It is basically the same as KK, now it seems Google Camera takes better pictures than stock camera. I don’t know whether it is the effect of missing XReality.

  • Ali Bach-Tobji

    Is there a solution ??

  • DENZIL

    NFC not working. its appearing at the first boot up. its showing updating NFC and later showing error message NFC update failed … please anybody help

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    did you update via official way? pc companion?

  • DENZIL

    here in middle east we didnot get close all button for xperia z2… which region firmware u installed?

  • Mayank Trehan

    sorry if you felt bad….but i just wanted to ask the region of your update.

  • Mayank Trehan

    Google Camera comes pre-installed?

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    i don’t wish to disclose where I reside in, I brought the phone in Korea.

  • DENZIL

    I FLASHED USING FLASH TOOL

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    no, you have to manually install it in play store

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    Then may I ask the following:
    1, your phone variant number?
    2. which fw number you used to flash?
    3. Which region is the fw from?

  • Mayank Trehan

    what about the performance of the Camera App by Sony?

  • Basheer Hadi

    NO IDEA BUT I DONE

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    from what I observe, stock camera takes roughly same quality pictures then before in kk, but the stock camera response time is noticeably longer in 5.0.2, i know this becuse i often photograph flocks of birds.
    On the other hand, Google camera shoots much faster, quality-wise, it look the same to stock. But that wasn’t the case in kk, stock images look much better

  • DENZIL

    D 6503
    23.1.A.0.690
    MEANA – MIDDLE EAST

  • Mayank Trehan

    have you seen “Image Enhancement” option in Display Settings for X-Reality Engine?……..because a user has posted an image here about Image Enhancement options.

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    yes i am well aware that neither Image Enhancement worked, neither XReality nor Supervivid.

  • DENZIL

    NFC option itself disabled.. cant activate it

  • Mayank Trehan

    is that a bug in the Update?

  • Apoorv Deshmukh

    Finally! The ES explorer can write to SD card now :) :)

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    did you flashed D6503 fw to your D6503? If you flash d6502 fw some functions fail to work

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    Yes it is missing four crucial files. You can manually add them, but it require root

  • Mayank Trehan

    ok thanks man :)

  • Mayank Trehan

    Any other bug you found in the update?
    do you have Xperia Z2 (D6502)?……if yes then how is it performing now?

  • Chan Kin Cheung
  • jxPerience

    back up your data and factory reset your phone.

  • jxPerience

    if you’re experiencing some bugs yeah it better, to remove the data residue from kitkat, if not better keep your data and no need to reset

  • jxPerience

    this problems occurs on some windows 7 laptop, if you have someone with you running windows 8 or later version just borrow and try to update.

  • jxPerience

    wer u from?

  • Àkshat Jain

    No yrr… I am having Windows 8.1 laptop.. Nd I have tried many times but the same error occurs

  • Mayank Trehan

    Any Indian with Xperia Z2 (D6502) want to share their experience about the New Lollipop Update.?

  • venkat

    Still no update for my Z3…from india bangalore…

  • DENZIL

    i flashed D6503 firmware only

  • X-reality not working Super vivid as well :(

  • X-Reality and Super Vivid – Doesn’t work
    Close All button – Yes
    NFC Icon – Yes
    Xperia with Facebook – Gone
    Xperia with Twitter – Still there
    Movies App – updated to “Video” via What’s New app
    Sound for video is lower than usual (i suspect a bug) but music sound is okay like usual.

  • Still there!!! , You don’t even have to reactivate them.

  • X-Reality and Super Vivid – Doesn’t work
    Close All button – Yes
    NFC Icon – Yes
    Xperia with Facebook – Not working properly (for me).
    Xperia with Twitter – Still there
    Movies App – updated to “Video” via What’s New app
    Sound for video is lower than usual (i suspect a bug) but music sound is okay like usual.

  • Mayank Trehan

    what about the performance about the device?
    and the apps you have on 4.4.4 were still there when you updated using PC Companion…..or you re-installed them?

  • XeNoNerGY

    Good! Any bugs? I might just flash it!

  • You don’t need to reinstall apps . You may have to update google play services.

    Performance -> OKAY for me .

  • bordz24

    Its more good to wait.
    So far for the first few hours its a bit unstable some things crashing and its becomes hot but as the gours goes on its becomes stable. I think you need to give it time to stabilize. I also factory reset like the others ao its all fresh!
    One more thing! They pyt the close all button for the app switcher hahaha

  • Mayank Trehan

    ok thanks man :)

  • XeNoNerGY

    Ouhh… Thx for the info! :) I will wait til it reaches Malaysia.

  • bordz24

    Yup its more good to wait and have the official one for your region its more stable

  • We know its ugly as hell and not properly located it must be at bottom as we have to move our thumb/finger to top to tap its annoying for me but it does the job. Something is better than Nothing.

  • aryan1357

    x reality and super vivid not working

  • XeNoNerGY

    Oops, I just found a way to check my customization number. Does this mean I have to wait for UK’s firmware? I bought this device as AP (Imported)

  • Rafael Nunes

    How is the status bar? I’ve flashed Baltic firmware and status bar gets theme-color in apps like Whatsapp or Google Chrome, that was ugly and annoying

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    Still nothing for Z2 (D6503) in Croatia…

  • bordz24

    Maybe thats why you didnt have It now. If u have a pc just download xperifirm you can see there

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    Yeah, that’s what I thought! Thank you!

  • Christopher Hill

    I got the notification on my Z2 Tablet, but it says a computer (mac/PC) is required. Does Sony ever allow update over the air? I dumped my windows and mac PC’s a long time ago, and I hate the thought of having to borrow one just to update my phone/tablet.

  • gavin

    Whn ever i restart my phone i can not see my service providers name on the staus bar of d phone

  • Nuno

    I am in the United States and installed using PC Companion

  • rajesh mishra

    in the morning i was able to see a lollipop update for my D6502 india but in the evening i am unable to see any update in the update centre:(

  • Àkshat Jain

    I was downloading using wifi on Pc…. And it is showing error while installing that there is no update… May be you are right.. I should use lan wire

  • Àkshat Jain

    I think it’s wifi problem because the update downloaded in just 10 minutes.. At 25 kbps.. Which is weird considering the size of update

  • Kal RH

    ok im still waiting…

  • rahaman

    do you notice that super vivid mode doesn’t work?

  • rahaman

    you are absolutely right. The camera also a bit blur .

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    Thank you Yogendra, How is the performance otherwise. and heating issues when gaming and browsing

  • Mayank Trehan

    Got an Update to 5.0.2 in the morning for my Xperia Z2 (D6502 India)…….but now the Update Notification is gone.

  • Mayank Trehan

    Same thing hapenned with me bro…….I guess SONY have pulled out update temporarily for fixing up Bugs reported by the Users…..n might relaunch it again in a day or two.

  • Austin

    I agree notification disappeared

  • Àkshat Jain

    Update notification is gone….. Lol Sony is trolling us xD xD

  • After updating performance is quit good, heating issue has been reduced ,not fully but somewhat OK. After around 45 min of gameplay of Asphalt 8 and boom beach device tends to warmer earlier it was hot on kitkat 4.4.4.

  • bordz24

    Dunno how about you.. Actually when I trt switching bet. Xreality and vivid its like the same or maybe I just dnt know how to differetiate them

  • XeNoNerGY

    No prob! :)

  • Bryan Julio

  • Basheer Hadi

    I updated my Z2 here in UAE y don’t urs?

  • ndom

    I am using my D6503 in UAE, but the model is Taiwan version. I’ve been waiting for days already but still I did not receive the update. :(

  • Guest

    Ok Sony

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    Hahahaha

  • W. Jurewicz

    I have and unlocked phone. Does Bell, or any carrier, use Sony’s Update Center to push their updates?

  • Bob

    You must use Sony’s PC Companion regardless of your carrier. Your carrier decides when or if to push the update out to your phone.

  • Lee Jia Hui

    Had it in Malaysia at the same time Singapore released. The size is 1.12GB (If I didn’t wrong).

    About the sound:
    I found the sound and ringer volume became louder. After you upgrade it, be reminded to switch the Clear Audio+ and other “Sound Effect” off and on again to get it work.

    About the display:
    Just the same like bordz24. I can’t differentiate the X-Reality and Super-Vivid Mode.

    About the GPS:
    I found that GPS detection becomes weak. Before the upgrade, I could detect my location near my house windows. Tested through “Diagnostic” and *#*#7378423#*#*.
    Now it’s hard. But it works at outdoor.

    About battery life:
    Got improvements.

    About performance:
    Run smooth in my Z2. The device will not get hotter as before. (If I didn’t wrong)

    So far so good. The only things I don’t like is the absent of “Silent mode” in “quick settings”.
    (Based on my daily usage)

  • Kabuto Kouji

    dude, thanx for the info, are u pretty sure that the notification volume is louder now?
    i tested my friend´s Z2 from taiwan who had it updated yesterday but didnt noticed any difference, actually to me it was louder on 4.4.4 and thats ridiculous cause 4.4.4 became significatly quiter compared to 4.4.2 where the notifications volume was great!

  • Lee Jia Hui

    Xperia with Facebook is still there..
    try to check at “Contacts” and “Settings”.

  • Lee Jia Hui

    I’m very sure that’s louder. I always set my notification volume to highest. I can hear the sound inside my bag at approximately 4-6meters at stadium. Last time I put my phone outside my bag with that distance, I can’t heard it. Now, everytime I received a notification, I get shocked for that sound. Lol
    Maybe u can try to switch the sound effects and all the settings on and off again include choosing.
    Because what happened for me is the “Sound Effect” worked after I switching it again.

    Different phone have different issue??Maybe??)

  • Ali Bach-Tobji

    It will be fixed?

  • Kabuto Kouji

    thanx for that quick asnwer, i understand i will try to reset the settings on my friends phone, i think that people that updated they dont really find a noticieble difference on the notif. volume cause they havnt done that “on-off-on” protocol, so they dont know how to make it work…… i just remember when in 4.4.4 we lost the “xloud” feature, at that point that really messed up the notifications volume no matter what setting you enable or diseble it just never sounded as loud as when Xloud was there so i was really dissapointed, so i hoped to saw that Xloud feature back on lollipop but anyway i will do that and let u know dude. anything else interesting topic from lollipop please share ok?

  • rus_media

    Ha ha ha

  • Austin

    Is anyone in India getting the notification on pc companion/Update Centre? For me both it shows Your Phone Is Up To Date :-/

  • Kaloyan Stoychev

    Did you wipe your data when/before you flashed?

  • magicdesign

    Has any one received it in uk yet?

  • Avishek Rakshit

    Hi all. I have a Z2 with model number D6502 and two days back I had got the notification for the update to lollipop but I could not download it then as I was not home. Now, when I am trying to update to lollipop through PC Companion, it says that my phone is up to date. :/
    Can you please say why?

  • liam fisher

    No. I think the update might of failed testing or somthing. And network operators are waiting for new software to test

  • W. Jurewicz

    But Bell does have their own version of the OS. They add their own bells and whistles, no? If that’s the case, do they upload their updates to Sony’s Update servers or something like that?

  • rajesh mishra

    bro any updates??

  • rahul malik

    Did anyone got the same issue.. While incoming call scrreen doesnt lights up automatically.
    And I cnt use any method to reject call with msg when call comes

  • Bob

    From my understanding Bell gets the update in order to do some “testing”. Then they “push” the update notification to your phone so you can access Sony’s PC companion update service. Bell really sucks for this. I’ve been stuck on KK 4.4.2. Didn’t get last update to KK 4.4.4.
    Definitely getting unlocked phone next time around.
    People complain about Sony’s slow update progress but my issue is stupid incompetent carrier. BELL CANADA SUCKS!!

  • liam fisher

    Here’s some news on the UK update. I don’t know if it’s accurate though -http://community.o2.co.uk/t5/Android-Devices-Samsung-HTC-Sony/Lollipop-heading-soon-to-entire-Z-series/td-p/861212/page/3

  • magicdesign

    Thanks Liam. I assume this does out give any clues to Vodafone? I have an unlocked handset, but with a voda sim so I assume it is now dictated by Vodafone’s release date unless I plug in an o2 sim…

  • liam fisher

    I think when one network sends out the update,they all should because it would give a unfair advantage to o2 otherwise

  • sumaiya shaikh

    PLEASE SOMONE HELP ME OUT.. I m using z2 and had received and update when I connected my phone with Sony pc suit.. I had startd the update then in half way my internet connection failed so I had disconnected my phone number reconnected it but now pc suit is saying ur phone is up to date whereas I haven’t yet received lollipop in my phone…please help..I m in india.

  • rahul malik

    Sony music app is not working on new lollipop update.. Z2

  • magicdesign

    I did not realise Sony made suits…

  • sumaiya shaikh

    Sony has its pc suit companion…I had connected my phone with Sony pc suit in order to check if lollipop update had arrived..

  • Sai Indraneel Naidu

    my z2 (D6502) is not showing update

    what to do guys ????????????

  • Lee Jia Hui

    Most of the new feature can find it at http://www.android.com/versions/lollipop-5-0/ . Yup, I miss the “xLoud” feature. =)
    The GPS issue gone after I reset my phone.

    Another things that I get annoyed is the Xperia Lounge sign in option.
    I signed in using my Sony Entertainment Network account since the day I brought my phone. Until the day Sony introduce the Xperia Lounge Gold feature, I upgraded my account to Gold. But, Sony removed the “Sony Entertainment Network” sign in option in the updates. After I reset my phone (cuz too much of unnecessary things), I can’t get the Sony Entertain sign in option. Even I uninstall updates and replace it with factory version(Xperia Lounge). I tried to sign in using the other three option. But I can’t get Gold, because I already upgraded it with my Sony Entertain account. Sad case. I can’t get the offers. I told the Sony Support and App Developer the only way they gave was just reset my phone. Just hope they will add the option again. =(

    Sorry about my English.

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    Wait, like everybody else…

  • magicdesign

    Update it using your microwave?

  • Bhargav Saikia

    It was kinda like a glitch. I had the update notification for a few hours and then it was gone. Wait for a few days (weeks maybe) and it’ll be back.
    Oh, and Sony doesn’t make suits. It’s called a ‘suite’ ;)

  • Austin

    For Xperia Z2 users: From Sony i got news that on 14th April night you should get the notification on your phone for updating via computer and on 15th April noon via OTA.This is due to various bugs found in the update and complained by users which are serious and it had to be removed completely.

  • steve

    even i have the same problem

  • sumaiya shaikh

    Oh yeah..thanx for the correction…:-)
    Oh so did u receive an update after dat..???

  • Kabuto Kouji

    wow thanx but whats your source??

  • Kabuto Kouji

    what do u mean?? not working at all??

  • Kevinski Ying

    Was about to post a complain here until i saw your post. Let’s hope this is the case then because the wait has been too long. The Z1s are receiving Lollipop as we speak.

  • jithin

    SONY India website is showing that Android 5.0.2 is available for Xperia Z2 (D6502)……then why Sony PC Suite is showing that our Kitkat devices are running on latest software available…….n no Lollipo update available for us on our devices?

  • Bhargav Saikia

    You must have got it too by now. It was live on 14th or 15th April.

  • sumaiya shaikh

    Yes I did… N it is soooooooo awsm…love u sony…

  • Bhargav Saikia

    Ok guys. There have been two updates for the Z2 D6502 so far. The first one was rolled back from India due to bug issues. Hence, many of you got the update notification for once and hours later your phone/pc companion told you that your phone was up to date.
    (**) The current latest version’s features:
    *Has the ‘close all’ button.
    *X-reality and vivid mode works.
    *walkman bugs have been cleared.
    *Notification/ringer sounds are significantly louder.
    *UI is smooth as silk.
    *Battery life is pretty much the same. (though improved sloghtly).
    *If you have multiple keyboards, you can change the active keyboard from literally anywhere. There’s a button beside the recent apps button when your keyboard is opened.
    (**) Now these are the problems I have faced:
    *The top speaker didn’t work at first. Rebooting solved the problem.
    *Nope. That’s it. No more problems.
    *Except that the “flappy android” (the android 5.0 easter egg) game is way too tough. My high score is one. Original flappy bird was way easier comparatively.

    P.S.: These are just initial observations. Still got a lot to discover I guess.

  • Sachin Gautam

    He is referring Z1 as shit

  • Matea1905

    Jel i ti imaš problema s mobitelom kao i ja??? Jucer stavim ga punit, nakon 8 sati na 75% punjenja je, vruuu? da ga ne mozes primit u ruke !! Seka isto ima Z2 i ima iste probleme koji su po?eli doslovno isti dan! ?ekam update, nadam se da ce popravir sve ovo,.inace mjenjam mobitel’ :(

  • Matea1905
