wpid-screenshot_2015-04-09-19-44-28.pngSony Mobile has begun to roll new Android 5.0.2 Lollipop firmware builds for the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact in select regions. Build number 23.1.A.0.726 has been released for both handsets in regions such as Russia, Latin America, USA, Turkey and the Middle East, whilst build number 23.2.A.0.278 has been released for Telekom.de in Germany. It is a bit early to know exactly what has changed, so if you have updated, chime in with your impressions below.

Thanks Diego, Edison, Florin, MK10, session20 and YassineT!

  • John-Mark Christmas

    While I’m thankful for the lollipop

  • Abdul Ghani

    23.2 is not 5.1 ?

  • xl77

    for real?…thanks for info.

  • Amel_Marie

    Nope, nothing on my update notification.

  • John-Mark Christmas

    You’re welcome

  • James Garofalo

    I think that’s to do with the themes themselves.

  • xl77

    z ultra google edition baru ja dpt 5.1 jd x mgkin xperia yg dh ada dpasaran akan dpt dlm msa trdekat.sony mmg trkenal brhati2 lepaskn update sampai dbenci..
    Keh.kehkeh

  • John-Mark Christmas

    Regardless of the themes that are chosen, the result is the same. Whether it’s stock themes or downloaded, it doesn’t change the navigation bar. The only changes are within the status bar of the settings app which changes accordingly to the theme chosen and the colour trail when swiping on the Xperia keyboard.

  • MastaMold

    No update available here in USA

  • RamaKrishna

    Oh my gosh,sony, why so much silence regarding D6653 ?? Push the update for D6653…

  • Nuno

    Still nothing here in USA, just recently updated my Z2 with new lollipop 5.0.2 and it had the CLOSE ALL icon. I believe that this update will bring over that feature to the Xperia Z3.

  • Is there any improvement in the camera software?

  • Nuno

    The lollipop runs very smooth on both Z2 and Z3 it did add a few features but nothing that I have notice, as I think the camera on xperia phones is great.

  • Kiwison

    ‘in select regions’ and nothing for the UK yet :(

  • Benjamin Levy

    I’m in the US with a Z3 Compact. I got email from Sony Mobile saying there was an update.

    “There is a software update (v. 23.1.A.0.726) available for your device. Update your device’s software and enjoy new features, better performance, speed and bug fixes. You can update the software today using your computer or wait until it’s available directly in your device (often within a couple of days). It’s easy and no backup is needed.”

    I’ve installed it, but so far I haven’t noticed any changes (no “close all” button).

  • Nuno

    Are you talking about the second lollipop update or you are updating your Z3 compact with lollipop for the first time. I updadet my Z3 with lollipop already but dont have the second update.

  • Ahmed Mosaad

    second update ? lol , i’m stuck here with kitkat on my Z3 Dual -.- damn it sony -.-

  • kedar

    When Xperia t3 lollipop update coming?

  • Another fanboy

    according to that build, .726 i think hes refering to the second build of LP

  • Deniz Do?an

    Sony didn’t even made any official news about T3. So, it might can’t get the lollipop update.

  • Willy Lin

    For Z3 Compact (D5833) users.
    23.1.A.0.726 had been released…
    This includes Australia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, and Philippines.

  • nick

    Still waiting fr .690 on d6653!!! Sony lazy

  • RamaKrishna

    yep..sony so lazy !!

  • Mickey Fils

    Anyone see any update for the Z3 in the US on XperiaFirm?

  • ash

    Next week

  • chrissy

    Betul lah tu. Kahkahkah

  • Benjamin Levy

    Correct, I installed 23.1.A.0.690 (the first Lollipop update) last week.

  • Goo Lam Boon

    Same here, still no update for D6653 in Malaysia!

  • lu99ke

    I think it may just mean the themes have not yet been updated to support lollipop… Sony released the APK builder kit for themes for the lollipop build recently…. the theme’s developers will no doubt update them to be fully compatible in due course.

  • Guest

    Have you tried over wifi?

  • Thariq Mohammed

    Have you tried over wifi connection?

  • Goo Lam Boon

    Try few times, still no for Z3 D6653.

  • Javad Badalov

    Xperia Z3

    No any updates. Still on 4.4.4.

    Please advise why?

  • nick

    Bcz Sony is too lazy to upload the firmware for z3..their so called flagship is still running KK next tym when I hear Sony flagship..I would die laughin

  • Javad Badalov

    Btw my wife’s Z2 has already received lollipop))

  • Thomas

    Just updated (needed to use PC Companion, as the update wasn’t available straight from my Z3 Compact). I can confirm the “clear all” button isn’t back with this update.

  • nick

    Yes…but we z3 users are still waiting

  • nick

    Non of the d6653 in entire world got official update

  • J@S0n

    no update in HK….

  • Goo Lam Boon

    In my country – Malaysia, Z2 and Z3 Compact got lollipop update, just Z3 don’t have… haiz…. really don’t know what to say…

  • Benjamin Levy

    Have you tried connecting your phone to your computer via PC Companion (or the Mac equivalent) to see if it’ll find the update for you?

  • Jayze

    Yup so disappointing, hope we don’t get the update slower than z1 or T2ultra and C.

  • nice2knowu

    Waiting patiently (ugh) here as well. I’m not going to flash another version, I want the HK one. :)

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    for HK people, I would recommend to flash FTF, as you are free of any complication on your device. i.e, your device is generic

  • Eduardo Otero

    Unlocked Z3 has Lollipop. T-Mobile Z3 hasn’t. By the way it is XperiFirm.

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    IMO, one major problem for Sony is version-splitting.

  • Christensen

    This update was the one that was released in Denmark almost 3 weeks ago.

  • Eduardo Otero

    Why is that a Problem?

  • Steve

    What is cleared that z3 dual is not treatedor taken by sony software department as flagship device!! :-o

  • George

    Guys take 1 minute and listen to me I was very angry to (because of late update from sony) but after researching and looking how sony pushes Lollipop Update i must say they are doing great job you will ask me why lets take look at samsung and their lollipop build for Galaxy S5 its ugly ugly and full of bugs its better to wait 2 month more but have stable build then have ugly unfinished Lollipop on your Phone
    http://www.techtimes.com/articles/44307/20150406/android-5-0-lollipop-problems-reported-by-users-of-samsung-galaxy-s5-battery-drain-app-overheating-issues-and-more.htm
    I am owner of Xperia Z2 now running latest version of android found only one bug with X-Reality not working beside this everything is ok and battery life is amazing even better then on Kitkat https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bybxz0TMy5EBWVBmWk1tUC1iRUk&authuser=0

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    z3 dual is a flagship device, it is only that the updates are late because maybe Sony is having difficulties porting the features on mono-sim devices to dual-sim devices, that’s what I think

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    as far as I know, Samsung is not the imaginary foe of Sony, so comparing these 2 really proves nothing. Just look at 2 facts: The sheer volume of Sammy devices; and the fact that they have their own CPU architecture. Maybe compare it with LG/HTC?

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    because it is hard for them considering the fact that they have so many variants for a single phone
    edit Sammy “SX” and “SX Active” are 2 completely different handsets

  • Eduardo Otero

    In USA there are only three variants, Z3, T-Mobile Z3 and Z3 dual.
    What is the hardest and is the real problem is to deal with all the operators around the world.

  • Kiwison

    and I’m using a flagship phone with KitKat in the UK, tell me about it :/

  • Mark

    I own a Z2, still waiting…

  • subin salim

    Use pc companion

  • TimmY

    If it’s locked it could be carrier’s fault. At this point lollipop(5.0.2) is not that much of improvement. I’m waiting for 5.1.

  • Carlos W. H. Sun

    D6653

  • nick

    Dude PC companion won’t pop the update automatically if its not rolled for the region…so plz

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    yes that is what I want to say

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    and, they have to adopt the sim-switching mechanism and all associated apps and settings from KK to LP, that’s quite a job. So please give more patience

  • Kaloyan Stoychev

    Hey, for some reason I have a HK firmware as well (in Bulgaria…). Which version do you recommend flashing to? Should I delete all data and do you reckon there might be bugs due to flashing?

  • Goo Lam Boon

    Buying a flagship device end up with the slowest update compared to Z2 and Z3 compact, I believe Sony Mobile Malaysia has to review their update strategy. If like this happen, will switch to other manufacturer.

  • Jachym Kokesh Lukes

    If they are still releasing updates – why not incorporate Camera2 API into them??? Their two flagship phones from last year deserve that!

  • ?? ???

    Still not available in the UK via OTA / PC

  • Abdullah Mohamed

    Same here bro = … Sony must respect the Z3 Dual as it is from the z3 series …
    ???? ??? ? ??? x’D

  • Ali

    I’m in Turkey. Still have the .690 build number

  • joe

    About X-Reality, i get the same problem on my Z3Compact it look like it switch off when you disconnect the charger .

  • RamaKrishna

    yep

  • RamaKrishna

    any proof ? No offense though..

  • joe

    I get this update last night i can say that nothing has change. it’s the same with different

    build number,i can say it after 5 hours of testing

  • Snorky112

    use flashtool

  • Guest
  • ash

    why should he? instead why not sony push it to everyone

  • Snorky112
  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    Lousy comment. We don’t care what other OEM;s do. If we buy Sony, we expect them to do a decent service. Sony has been slow and have been writing in water all their promises that annoys us all. 4 months since the OS was launched and we have our reasons to be upset.

  • vctrdnl

    Are you using Stamina mode? If yes, then disable the limited device performance option in its settings menu and now Xreality option will remain selected at all time in Display settings. However, Xreality doesn’t work properly in the current Lollipop firmware build. So this solution worked for KK, it should work again when Sony add the missing system files (maybe next build).

  • John-Mark Christmas

    I really hope so

  • Javad Badalov

    there is no sense in it

  • SHITTY
  • Javad Badalov

    really, why?))

  • Javad Badalov

    I tried. No difference.

  • Steven Khoo Skkl

    Then you need to review your ‘facts’ again.. Samsung devices are flooding the market,yes..but how many of them are actually updated with a major update and not just a simple ‘bug fix’.. As far as I can tell.. Not a lot.. And as for their own chips, they do manufacture them and that’s all the more reason to get them update optimise right because it’s their own God damn CPU in which they themselves have the coding and not another company.. Samsung is still a realistic rival to Sony because what Sony does,Samsung does..

  • David Gattenberg

    the OTA for 5.X is not being rolled out in the UK yet… good and bad… seeing all the issues with 5..we may get 5.1 ?? or 5.2 in he UK ??

  • Dean Weaver

    UK – SIM free – still not got the first one…..

  • Ali Bach-Tobji

    Can you check if the x reality works ?

  • joe

    Thank you for the information for the Stamina mode .

  • Halim2k

    Dual SIM is not supported by default in Google Android, the first official support coming with 5.1 update, so companies -all of them not only SONY- take more time to modify the kernel to support dual SIM phones.
    ?? ???? ?? ????

  • Nuno

    Do you have the Z3 or Z3 compact and what region are you in

  • charbel aoun

    Lol. I’m in lebanon. And i swear after 1 year i receive a buggy update. I can’t use odin cz it disable network coverage. F*** samsung.

  • Nuno

    Its not all that good on Samsungs side their lollipop update was released at the same time as Sony’s. My brand is Sony 100% as i have every single flagship since the Xperia Z, but from work i use a Galaxy Note and just recently was updated, also the S5 only started receiving lollipop in my region yesterday and it was a huge file. And some carriers still have their S5’s running version 4.4.2, i can honestly say that Sony has improved a lot with the release of the software updates. And i also agree that the lollipop on a Sony device looks much better than the one on Samsung devices.

  • Lorenzo

    Any changes?

  • RamaKrishna

    Proof ? :P ;)

  • Reinstall PC Companion and choose correct region.

  • Abdullah Mohamed

    Thanks for the info. ^-^
    ??????

  • joe

    I have the Z3Compact i live in Lebanon .

  • Constantine

    Feel your pain..

  • Antonio

    Please can someone tell me what about German T-mobile z3 compact?

  • Magneira

    Any news on Brazil?

  • jirokanz

    I already got lollipop for Z3c.

  • Wayne wildridge

    Hi has anyone received the lollipop update in the UK. I’m not in a mad rush to update as I want a phone that works perfectly. Just want to know if the UK is still behind the rest of the world as usual.

  • Kaostheory

    Samsung is only 5.0 Sony is 5.0.2

  • liam fisher

    No one in the UK has it yet as far as I know

  • mrd25

    Still no update for z3 in the philippines.
    Im disappointed

  • mrd25

    Z3 users are receiving lollipop, how bout the z3’S?F#ck!’n ridiculous!!!!

  • mrd25

    They always say “next week!”,
    How many next weeks do they have????!!!

  • Sadman Khan

    Seems much smoother and faster for me. Also, antutu score 46750. Before the update i’d get <45k

  • mrd25

    Please push the update now…

  • Willy Lin

    Sorry, still no news on Brazil.

  • Thomas

    Might be my imagination (or wishful thinking), but as Sadman Khan said, it does seem slightly faster.

  • Jan

    How about the netherlands? Why is it taking so long?

  • Kiwison

    Are you in the UK? You’ve not flashed it or something?

  • [S]unjay

    The C3 and T2 Ultra are getting Lollipop. Sony hasn’t announced a T3 update but we should keep our fingers crossed.

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    I’m a Z2 user, and still no Lollipop for me :)

  • liam fisher

    Here’s news on the UK update -http://community.o2.co.uk/t5/Android-Devices-Samsung-HTC-Sony/Lollipop-heading-soon-to-entire-Z-series/td-p/861212/page/3

  • Blazej

    I want to lick Lollipop on my Z1C, considering this handset has been released in 2014 it is time to push it out now.

  • Cole545

    So I flashed the german ROM. The only difference I’ve noticed so far is they fixed the issue with ultra stamina mode. When you went into USM in a previous version, coming out of USM would re-enable disabled apps. That’s what happened for me. I was using Customized US version. They fixed that issue.

  • kk47042

    just wait till monday and we’ll get it :)

  • kk47042

    just install using xperifirm :)

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    I would, but I don’t want to mess things up, because I’ve never done it before :S and I don’t know how to use XperiFirm

  • Panagiotis Kalliakmanis

    Greece???

  • Doubleyoupee

    Why are you surprised?
    Germany unbranded had to wait 3 full months (!!!) on 4.3 release for Xperia ZL (compared to first release)…
    That’s why I always add 1-3 months to the expected release date.

  • LiterofCola

    And as a bonus they’ll throw in a lousy phone.

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    I’ve just asked my carrier in Croatia, T-Mobile about the update, and they said that they have NO CLUE about any update! This is very annoying!! :@

  • Zoran
  • Azar

    Instead of just messing with the already released updates for Z3, they could release L for Z and Z1 AND THEN do whatever they want to their beloved Z3 which will be outdated after couple of months anyways

  • Rosan Iliev

    As linux kernel dev for most of my life I can say this…

    This is the only ever ota I did for more than 5 devices. A week with it now and I think I won’t bother with custom roms at all!

    Great job Sony! only if more SW was delivered like that…

  • mrd25

    Its time for me to stop buying sony..

  • Ti?n Th?ng

    I’m in vietnam… and still waiting

  • Jim

    Anyone having issues with using Google Now?
    It launches fine for the most part but after call the phone freezes and home/button doesn’t respond and black screen.

  • ZoubIWah

    actually most countries still dont have the galaxy S5 update.. .soo nope..
    the Z’s got the update first, but in both cases these updates may need to be approved by the carrier so depending on where you got your phone it can take a few weeks more.

  • RamaKrishna

    Why should we use xperifirm ? Sony should take more care in releasing their updates..
    [ XZ3(D6653) has no lollipop yet … ] So,you are suggesting us to use xperifirm ? why ? Aren’t we(D6653) user’s supposed get the update from sony’s PCC or OTA ?
    They released L for XZ3[only few models] first,right ? what about the remaining models of XZ3[say,D6653] ?
    what I’m saying is ” they should take care of 1 device at a time[dual devices may be apart,idk..] “

  • ash

    Because next week update is rolling out for z1 series and along with that z3 dual. Check sony twitter

  • RamaKrishna

    I know that but XZ3 D6653 ain’t dual ..

  • Willy Mularto

    D6653 when?

  • Tom Barud

    I’ve got my update to lollipop last week on my z3c, I guess my phone is customized gr (i got it in cyprus)

  • nick

    Never ending Next week

  • Carlos W. H. Sun

    So can you explain what happened to d6653?

  • Blazej

    There’s nothing else I can do except waiting. I do not want to flash unofficial roms anymore, Anyways it’s hard to believe it will arrive next week.

  • Constantine
  • Tajhric fox

    Its not something any OEM does they go by regions

  • Carlos W. H. Sun

    unaligned signal icon problem is fixed in this build.

  • Tim S

    Is there anything stopping me installing this update on my UK Z3c via XperiFrim? Will it screw stuff up?

  • Carlos W. H. Sun

    I flashed 5.0.2 (US Ver.) on my D6653 (HK Ver.) with xperifirm and flash tool. So far so good.

  • M Usman

    Yes I received it a !month ago on my z3 in the UK

  • Aiden Pearce

    as****** sony forgot that there exist D6653..the support site lists .690 but no sign of it on servers….

  • RamaKrishna

    is it possible to revert back to 4.4.4 after installing 5.0.2 on D6653 ?

  • Carlos W. H. Sun

    Yes you can, but you will have to wipe all your data after going back kk.

  • RamaKrishna

    oh i see.. wiping all your data after going back to kk means,”factory data reset” right ? or the other way ?

  • Kiwison

    Maybe.. :/

  • RamaKrishna

    same here in India too..

  • Carlos W. H. Sun

    I mean, you “need to” tick the wipe data option in flash tool while flashing back to kk. Otherwise, your phone will get stuck at boot screen forever.

  • RamaKrishna

    Ohh ok got it. Hoping for the good,downloading 5.0.2 US version now :)
    *To be installed on my (D6653) INDIA *

  • Carlos W. H. Sun

    There is noway going back to kk without wiping your data.

  • Carlos W. H. Sun

    have fun with lollipop :)

  • RamaKrishna

    cheers bro :)

  • RamaKrishna

    have you tried going back to kk from LP ? *Curious*

  • Carlos W. H. Sun

    Yeah, I tried, because Sony HK told me the update would come by the end of march (then I found out that was a lie, LOL) so I decided to go back kk and wait for the update.

  • RamaKrishna

    Oh ,I see.. are you using LP now or are you back to KK ? *sry,if it seemed to you,I am asking too many questions :( *

  • Carlos W. H. Sun

    us ver. lollipop on my hk ver. D6653

  • Goo Lam Boon

    Flashed the D6603 23.2.A.0.278 to my D6653 and it works without any issues even i don’t wipe my data. Will flash back D6653 – Customized MY if available.

  • mukul verma

    yes you can, just flash 4.4.4 on d6653 & you’ll have kitkat. & if you want backup, try using my phone explorer, its very handy for sony phones. i am using since 5 yrs.

  • Sadman Khan

    Am i the only one who doesn’t have this wallpaper?

  • Carlos W. H. Sun

  • Carlos W. H. Sun
  • Jan

    Same for the Netherlands…. I think Germany, UK, Netherlands and France are the last countries that will receive lollipop

  • Jim

    Thanks for the suggestion. Seems to be OK so far.

  • TheDu

    From what I can tell, it fixes some of the settings/switches in Stamina Mode.

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

  • bilomar

    X-reality works fine for me on.690. Why can’t we save those better X-reality images? Doesn’t make sense to me having the better images only in the album app in my phone. Wish Sony would release a app to save those X-reality images So I can enjoy them on other devices.

  • joe

    Z3 Compact i am in Lebanon

  • Aditya Thakur

    Top mobile companies had updated their devices to lollipop
    Even small companies, like Micromax, Lenovo who were known to be late on update section, but they also updated to lollipop. ONE PLUS ONE also received debuted lollipop os.

    In short, whole world got lollipop to taste sony left us with kitkat.

  • Aiden Pearce

    its not about what is being missed its about Sony’s treacherous behaviour towards D6653 ..listing of .690 firmware on Support site to put salt on wound and not even bothered to keep us updated on case..

  • Wayne wildridge

    Thanks for the info. I’ve been told it was rejected by vodafone and o2 in the uk because the issues with lollipop but a new build has been confirmed so fingers crossed for this week.

  • kido

    Any of you guys have a problem with the walkman app sound effects after lollipop 5.0.2 update?? I seem to have a problem with the sound effects..everytime i set the accessory settings to what type of headphone/earphone i want the sound effects to sound like, it only lasts for one song, and then it seems to go back to ‘general’ headphone settings. Thus after every song i have to change it back to have the sound effects that i want. I only noticed this after lollipop update V23.1.A.0.726

  • Willy Mularto
  • Michael Mason

    Does anyone know what happened to the USB dac feature after lollipop update on z3?

  • Andrew

    Got my update here in the UK last night for my Xperia Z3 Compact, however when the update was finished the LED notifications light stopped working except when phone was charging. Tried a system reboot and stamina mode is disable but the problem is still there, with the added bonus of my contacts/history not transferring from my old phone (but that’s a separate issue)

    Thoughts, anyone?

  • Happymonkey

    Just updated! I’m in the UK on the Three Network! I have a Z3.

  • Mad Martigan

    I am on Z3c with giffgaff and received the update today.

    The mute and vibrate modes are now missing from the Xperia ‘hold power button’ screeen…this makes me sad as otherwise it seems faster and has some cool stuff. I haven’t got a clue how to mute my phone now…something I did multiple times a day :/

  • Mad Martigan

    I am on Z3c with giffgaff and received the update today here in the UK. I had to check manually though via the ‘about phone’ in settings. Didn’t get a notification for it.

    The mute and vibrate modes are now missing from the Xperia ‘hold power button’ screeen…this makes me very sad as otherwise it seems faster and has some cool stuff. I haven’t got a clue how to mute my phone now…something I did multiple times a day before…all the ‘priority’ crap…why make the simplest thing so complicated? The designer who implemented that needs a serious firing…

  • Johann Etchell

    Any news on South Africa for the Z3

  • el_sur

    Dl it, for z3c t, my phone flies now!

  • Antonio

    I have this version, but I don’t see the button “Close all”

  • VIE

    Mine is also updated to Lollipop, i would have also loved it if the “Close all” button stayed. My walkman search still function tho..

  • Amimanot

    Wait, you can? In previous versions of X-reality (or Mobile Bravia Engine) when taking a screen shot the changes doesnt appear

  • Antonio

    Mine doesn’t works

  • Antonio

    and the worst is that the same upgrade for z2 users if bring it back button “close all”

  • Kiran Pasupuleti

    Like Sony’s version of Kitkat and was apprehensive to update to Lollipop on my new Z3C.
    Glad I updated. Unbelievably polished. I don’t think my phone can get any better than this!
    Always heard iphone is best at experience. Really curious now, can anything be better than this?

  • Nikki Singh

    Thanks for sharing this great update. It is very helpful. Good job.!! recording app

  • Bill Tg

    Does anybody know if the problems regarding battery life and overheating are fixed with the .726 firmware? The .690 had…problems…

  • oltman

    It is available as from this morning: 23.1.A.726 / R8C. Just launch your PC Companion.

  • Johann Etchell

    Thanks

  • pinkun

    Hi I did the latest update for lollipop on Friday and now my phone not working properly at all. I cannot put on my yahoo account for a start and having problems with receiving calls. Also having great difficulty in logging into free wifi areas. Anyone else got the same problems?

  • That makes it sound like they are trying to make sure that they can determine if data traffic is VOIP or not.

    I hope it’s not that… :-/

  • Jennifer Rothwell

    I did the most recent update for my Sony Xperia Z Compact also here in the UK, and ever since have not had a notification light. I have turned off stamina mode but am yet to erase all settings as I’m starting to wonder if it’s worth erasing everything – it is driving me insane not having a notification light – anybody have a fix??

  • maelisone

    how about the wifi geo fence that exist in kitkat in the stamina menu , but no more in lollipop , its helps to get more juice of battery , because is used to turn off wifi when there is no connexion around and turn it on when you are in place where your phone used to has wifi connexion ?!!!
    now with lollipop is always on until you turn it off manually !!!! that’s problem for me !

  • Yanoof

    Their servers dont have that much capacity to serve the whole world at once

  • Mickey Fils

    Not the D6166 model..

  • Eduardo Otero

    It is D6616. D6166 does not exist

  • Mickey Fils

    I’ve checked every week and it’s still on 4.4.2

  • Eduardo Otero

    You must have the T-Mobile model then you will have to wait. Lollipop released will take long..

  • Raghu
