    https://youtu.be/R0y13qfuCvU Video review + download link :)

  • jag

    Just wait for it. The app is updating the upload each hour or minute.

  • Messup7592

    Je vais devoir patienter avec vous les gars… Quoique je vais quand même checker Pc companion ce soir en rentrant :P

  • raju

    no update india z1 compact

  • Ouais je me demande la même chose vu qu’ils sont assez insignifiants et tout ça. En tout cas ça m’étonnerais pas que ton Xperia sera considéré comme nu !

  • appl1747

    No update yet, Czech Republic C6906

  • Igor Helal

    Nothing here in Brazil yet (Z ultra)

  • WakeApp

    Le fameux Wait & See est de rigueur avec Sony ^^ ça ne m’empêche pas de rafraichir Pc Companion toutes les 10mn lol

  • Rolf Martin Schmidt

    My Sony Xperia Z1 Compact here in Germany just got the update notification.

    But I will reset my phone before I do the update via OTA.

  • raju

    miss tap to wake up

  • WilliamTell13

    Hopefully T-Mobile rolls out the Z1s update soon! It has already been certified since April 3!

  • Drygin

    Chez Virgin c’est téléphones nus qu’ils vendent, en principe !

  • Mdr si tu vois la mise à jour tu me fais signe alors ?

  • WakeApp

    C’est bien ce que je pensais, j’avais aucun service propre à l’opérateur quand je l’ai acheté (contrairement à SFR, Orange..)

  • WakeApp

    Pas de soucis je laisse cette page ouverte jusqu’à que la maj sera dispo ! ;-)

  • Raffy Ko

    Already here in the Philippines! Will wait for OTA version though.

  • Bio24

    hmm.. my internet speed is slow.. so i think tomorrow morning i can install it on my phone…i will give quick review tomorrow.. sorry.. :3

  • raju

    and miss the time shift camera app

  • Bio24

    Kl g dpt via PC Companion, coba via XperiaFirm.. atau cari di xda, di sana udh ad yg upload ftf lollipop.. install via flashtool

  • Robert Llobrera Jr.

    Oh ok that’s fine. Need to see people’s first impressions so that i may update my Z Ultra. Kitkat still working flawlessly though :)

  • DanielGearSolid

    Try the pc companion

  • Kima

    Still not available in Serbia…

  • jamesbdx

    Et je confirme les Z1 Z2 Z3 vendus par Virgin sont tous nus et avec bootloader deverouillable. Donc faut juste attendre la version custom FR ou utiliser flashtool

  • Markus Ulrich

    Lolipop for xperia z2 Spain?

  • anonym

    Nothing in Germany… Sony you and Updates = Too late…

  • Rico Chandra

    Sama bro! Di XperiFirm ada tp di PC Companion gak dapat.

  • Ricardo Ca

    According to Xperifim only a few markets and operators have received for Z ultra. France, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, USA.

  • minimaL

    o2 provider by any chance or generic DE?

  • Matt

    what happens if I flash an update for my model but for another country?

  • Wrestler Kishore Cena

    c6802 z ultra rolling out now in many countries

  • Reza

    Mungkin tergantung dari brand/distributor bro, utk indonesia biasanya scm atau sony indonesia kalo mau cpt flash aja gan ambil dari xperifirm.

  • Rolf Martin Schmidt

    I bought it at an O2-Shop 8 months ago and it had some O2-apps.
    So IMHO I would call my phone “soft-branded”.

    After the update I will post you the screenshot “About Phone” with Build number and Kernel version.

    Viel Glück!

  • Igool

    The close all button is back! (Z1 Compact )

  • uiz Tjiuu

  • WakeApp

    Je suis tenté par le remettre à zéro histoire d’avoir un téléphone “propre” pour cette mise à jour, mais j’hésite …

  • Pareil mais j’ai vraiment trop de SMS et photos que je veux garder et je sens que ça va être chiant de tous les sauvegarder puis les remettre.. Je pense que je ferais la MàJ sans factory reset.

  • Molham Staif

    I updated my device using flashtool

  • xperiaDROID

    Any changes in the boot animation? Like the addition of PS4 sound and “powered by Android” logo?

    and yeah sadly Sony not giving shit to the Z3 dual ..
    but maybe cuz it’s kernel is different from the Normal Z3
    but Lollipop 5.1 supported the dual-sim .. ! so it must be easier to update to 5.1 same as the Normal Z3 ^_^

  • Sadly nothing yet for US C6906.

  • Fadi Obaya

    Yes, you can. :)

  • Vlad

    Nothing in RO

  • Mac

    nothing for my z1 compact in Sweden, just checked PCC.

  • Joseph Picajole

    Ja provjerio nema, i na ure?aju i na PC. Xperia Z1 T Com

  • khan

    whyyyyy???? damm it i was so excited.

  • Joseph Picajole

    Meni nije stiglo, jel ti mob brendiran ili ? moj je t com

  • Peter Krisan

    No update in Hungary neither.

  • Hugo Leonardo

    As the Brazilian version of Z1 (C6943) has different hardware to allow us to receive our digital tv system for free on the device, I doubt Sony is going to release the update any time soon =/ let’s cry =/

  • darko

    Nije mi brendiran !
    Nemam pojma, uzeo sam ga preko oglasa :)

  • Joseph Picajole

    Dakle to za TCom pokazuje broj 14.4.A.0.157, ja imam tu verziju na mobu, dakle to je oznaka za kitkat….novu je dobio samo vipnet, po novom ve?em broju!

  • Igor Helal

    Eu comprei um Z1 mês passado e ele recebeu a versão 4.4.4 do Android – ou seja, ele foi atualizado, mesmo sendo brasileiro. Demorou assim?

  • Pelle Jansson

    Glad to see that they fixed the timer watch so you don’t have to
    unlock the device to turn it of when time is up!
    Was very annoying as it was
    IMO.

  • Willian Quah

    icon too big and WiFi seems slow when compare to kitkat
    and also charging issue

  • Igor Helal

    I think we have to try both! :)

  • Hugo Leonardo

    Estamos falando do 5.0.2, mas o 4.4.4 foi liberado para o Z1 mundialmente em 30 de junho de 2014, e para o Brasil em 10 de julho. Eu só entrei na onda do desespero exagerando, como todo brasileiro gosta de exagerar AHahAHAH … a versão C6943 deve sair semana que vem se seguir a lógica do Z3 que demorou 1 semana para liberar para a versão brasileira, mas nunca saberemos o que a Sony nos reserva.

    We’re talking about 5.0.2, but the 4.4.4 was released globaly to the Z1 in June 30th of 2014, and to Brazil in July 10th. I was just expressing my desperation by exagerating a little bit, as most of Brazilians usually do… The C6943 version should be released next week if it follows the logic of the Z3 that spent one week to get the Brazilian version released… but we never know what Sony reserves to us.

  • Igor Helal

    Bom saber que terei que aguardar uns 10 dias! hahahahaha! Bem, no meu caso é o Z Ultra. Falei do Z1 porque as atualizações são semelhantes… Que venha a versão 5.0.2 !!!

  • Wolfmachien

    Update available for the C6902.

Z1C is supposed to be getting lollipop while there are Z3 that haven’t gotten it!! WTF?? Are you serious Sony? Haven’t you got enough money to get some serious servers and roll your updates at once? When will you take the decision to be a serious company?

  • Je viens d’installer lollipop, c’est fluide c’est beau, c’est cool mais le tel est assez chaud et la batterie descend vite. Quand j’ai ouvert les sms grosse frayeur, la page restait blanche pendant longtemps donc j’ai fermé rrouvert etc par peur, mais au final il faut juste la laisser ouverte 10 min et tout les messages apparaissent.. J’ai découvert qu’on peut maintenant record l’écran et la qualité est superbe :)
    J’espère que la batterie était juste chaude à cause du nombre de mises à jour que je faisais en même temps etc… Sinon globalement je suis satisfait, je vous conseille de pas updater tout de suite et d’attendre plus de retours et peut être updater dans 1 semaine. Voilà, désolé si j’ai baclé ce petit message, c’est car je suis sur mobile donc un peu fastidieux d’écrire. Voici quelques screens ;) :

    My friend’s Xperia Z2 LTE version has now got it in Iran. So did I (on my Z Ultra) and another friend of mine (on his Z3 dual).
    Sony Mobile is almost selling on par with Samsung in Iran. A few month back, it was the top mobile phone seller across the country. No surprise they rolled it out sooner for Z2 LTE.

  • Andre Lemard

    To me a hard reset isn’t necessary unless some really bad bugs arise after updating. It’s all down to personal preference really.

    I mean Xperia Z devices have a very classy design, premium look&feel but Xperia UI, the Sony version of Lollipop looks very cheap and Kiddish, cheap UI doesn’t deserve the classy hardware at all.

  • Mac

    Thx man, it’s stuf like this that keeps me from updating. But I haven’t got the notification yet either so yea.

  • Mac

    Flappy bird!

  • Hmmm…. Went through what appeared to be a flawless upgrade using the Companion, but now I’m stuck in a bootloop. (c6906, Unbranded US)

    When I tried to use FlashTool/Xperifirm, the LED on the phone flashed red, then green, then off right away when holding the volume button down and plugging in the USB cord.

    Any suggestions?

    I think the walkman app update is independent to the lollipop update. So, no change.

  • 1.2GB

  • Amirul Syafiq

    connect your phone to a computer and install “PC companion”.

  • Amirul Syafiq

    Pakai PCC.

  • Amirul Syafiq

    I didn’t take a screenshot but from what i recall, its 1.2Gb

    Install this in your computer

    Then, connect your phone to the computer with usb cable.

  • XperiaZ4Ultra

    there is im done with the update

  • FixMax

    I found several…. But it’s because of fresh install it just shutdown immediately (occured twice , so don’t paid attention so much)
    And seems like Ultra Stamina could turn off connection btw mobile and carrier because someone tryed to call to me and carrier said that “Please check that number is correct and try again”, signal level was perfect.
    Album app sometime stucks sometimes (just title and icon without pictures and videos) , just had to restart telephone , otherwise even “Shutdown application” doesnt work. Here I also wonder because a lot of pictures (> 2000) should regenerate their miniature-photos.
    Well anything else works veeery smooth and perfect :-)

    Yes ! I ordered it from e-bay.
    And also my phone was rooted without unlocking the bootloader…

    Guys lollipop for z1 just finished via sony pc companion now the fucking companion is asking me to connect to a usb 2 port and i don’t have any so please any solutions

    Any1 got lollipop update on z1(c6902) in India via PC companion yet??

  • finch35

    The update won’t come from smart or globe carriers. Because they don’t have anything in the software update but the Sim only. They’re not like U.S. carirriers like T-Mobile etc. which has their own apps to bundle along the update.

    2)is thr a chance that I’ll mess up my phone..??

  • grim3439

    Well I guess it’s up to everyone’s taste. Some might like it some might not. If you don’t like the look stay on kitka, after all they are about the same.

  • Lasantha

    Any improvements on Z1 compact? camera quality etc?

  • raju

    update in India z1 compact, still not land . for z1, z2,z3 india, sony blog sad next week release lollipop update c3 and t2 ultra worldwide, means including india also . in india lollipop release first c3 and t2 ultra after z3,z2,z1,right ?

  • grim3439

    As of now, the only problem for me was some lag on the WiFi menu but it’s gone now. I have no problems on gallery like Fixmax. It’s a good update over all. Antutu score rises about 1,000 posts to score 39,000 points when on kitkat it was 38,000 or so. Low light pictures with superior auto mode have better quality with less noise and more detail. That’s all I can say so far.

  • Richie

    Updated it yesterday. Runs very smooth and didnt find any bugs so far.. Love the lockscreen and the best part is it says the remaining time to full charge when charging the phone

  • grim3439

    I got it in the United States.

  • Chikku

    Can u upload some screenshots..?? I’d like to stare in awe and amazement until i get the update in my region

  • Kamil1308

    1. Yes I am from Ireland and flashed firmware form Slovenia.
    2. Most likely not.
    3.Yes, you can just flash old firmware from India if something will be wrong.

  • Satyanarayan

    @keyvanghanbary:disqus Can u Please post the Snapshots of UI (heard that sony has included old kitkat launcher in Z Ultra so just want to know how it looks i mean great or ugly )..How loud is the sound from internal speaker?Is there any low volume due to missing xloud feature?

    I have found a battery draining bug, it eats your battery alive. You can see on the screenshots in this post. I read it’s a bug on Android 5.0, I don’t know if a factory reset will fix it.

  • Wrestler Kishore Cena

    already flashed it looks beautiful

  • Mayur Motwani

    Might take a little more time for it to be available. But if its now appearing on Sony mobile India’s support page as latest update then it should start rolling in a few hours I think.

  • Shiva Gupta

    When this update comes in india???

  • khan

    Yes it is showing on sonyy india site, but pc companion shows nothing :( checking since yesterday night.

  • Bah j’ai actualisé le centre des mises à jour sur mon Z1 Compact le soir vers 20h et il m’a affiché “Mise à Jour – PC requis”, donc je l’ai branché sur PCC etc.. ;)
    Au pire si il t’affiche rien branche ton tel sur PCC directement et peut-être que la MàJ apparaîtra !

    PS:
    Bon j’ai Lollipop depuis hier soir, donc j’ai chargé à 100% hier à 22h et la (à 14h30) il est a 82% (j’ai envoyé 4-5 sms, updaté 2 applis, navigué 5min sur Chrome et écouté 20 minutes de la musique sur SoundCloud) donc je dirais que la durée de vie de la batterie n’a pas trop changée :) !!
    Après, le tout est super fluide, c’est vraiment sympa. On a des nouvelles fonctionnalités comme pouvoir enregistrer l’écran en vidéo (en très bonne qualité en plus), je clavier et le swype de clavier sont beaucoup plus fluide. Bref, je regrette pas d’avoir mis à jour, maintenant faut voir si la batterie tiendra aussi longtemps que sous Kitkat, mais pour l’instant ça a l’air bien parti. (D’ailleurs, aucun signe de memory leak sur mon Z1C, contrairement à ce que certains utilisateurs de Z3 et Z2 ont signalé)!

    (En résumé : belle MàJ, nouvelles fonctionnalités, pas de bug trouvé, vie de la batterie encore à voir)

    :p

  • Mayur Motwani

  • Hamed

    I have the z1 compact, I’ve waited the update since early March, now I stayed wll night updating the phone, I found a few bugs;
    1- the system Ui got laggy and crashed once
    2- an app didn’t run which is ominous for future useing.
    3- the interface, I agree its a bit cheep, and not as used to be as classy as before, but I thought it would increase the performance, but boy I was wrong.
    4- the battery life is draining faster than before even with the the stamina mode.
    5- the device gets hot faster than before and its alarmingly dangerous.
    6- the system freezes more often, it froze while I was writing this post which is embarrassing

  • amd

    Hey machan how much free ram have after update?

  • Vahid Sanati

    I agree with case 4 and 5. I have a z1 compacttoo and it’s battery is draining faster. also it gets hot more often I use it.

  • Vahid Sanati

    I noticed there is a 60fps video recording in camera settings. but it’s not working and it’s recording in 30fps. can anyone confirm this?
    BTW the camera quality is way better than before. now the images size in 20MP is near 9-10MB which was 5-6MB in kitkat! and has less noise and more detail.

  • Lazar Mladenovic

    Do you need PC Companion for Z1 ?

  • Parthasarathi Chakrabarti

    That’s unfortunate. Now I have second thoughts about updating till these bugs are fixed!

    yes!

    C6903

  • Kima

    do a clean install, I mean factory reset yr phone or repair via pc companion.

  • zuviel

    It looks a lot better once you switch from the default baby blue to another theme (I like white – it switches it to non-distracting neutral grays).
    I upgraded my C6906 last night via PC Companion (in Canada). Mostly good so far – initial bootup and decryption took longer, but I haven’t tested yet to see if that’s only a one time thing. The interface is fast and springy. Notifications seem to work a little better.
    Face unlock is gone, but PIN seems to work a little better (better centering and spacing on the keypad).
    Not noticing any changes to the camera.

    did u try factory reset or repair?

    Oh really. After I upgrade it to kitkat it’s 500mb free. You have Xperia z1 right

    Yeah.. I’m using a Z1. Try to keep only essential apps you need most bro.. ?

  • Joseph Picajole

    please check the build number on your smartphone, because im from croatia, and it says that we have receved update in croatia, but when i compared it to my phone build number, it was the same, in fact it was kitkat 4.4.4, so the xperifirm showed the “newest build” and in my case not yet lolipop…

  • CreX

    Welke Xperia heb jij?

  • pranav jain

    Yes Man! I’ve been checking for update like every half an hour. Still no success

  • Roshan Poddar

    :-(, i just checked on xperifirm..
    bt pc companion showing no signs of update..
    i’ll stay tune, hope it gets in few hours.

  • Joseph Picajole

    Does anybody know how to install, for example im from Croatia, and for other network in Croatia (mine is t mobile) the update came for vip/vodafone, so if I download that version with XperiFirm and install it, can I do something bad to my phone, and what program to use? how to do that? thanks in advance for reply!

  • Deni Sisernik

  • Gabriel Voica

    I’m starting to get tired with these updates from Sony…how is it posible that unlocked devices don’t get the updates and carrier ones get it!?
    You get updated first in Sri Lanka(no offense) but not in Europe..
    Checked on PCC,XperiFirm,OTA and no update for ZUltra c6833…only a few accross Europe and those are carrier branded updates
    Same happend withZ1and Z2 before and also when KitKat arrived i had to flash a russian .ftf file…
    If you release a sw update just release globaly for all devices not like this…
    It’s becoming really frustrating..

  • Gabriel Voica

    Use Go Launcher

  • Savindu

    Welcome ;)

  • Savindu

    Not that much bro.. I had around 600MB

  • jag

    for my z ultra C6883, it runs smooth and faster. i think this should be the “project butter” they tried to do in jelly bean last version. LOL! The only bad thing I can say is that the battery drains faster than last time but I will try to do a clean reinstall this coming weekends and see if it will make any difference.

    and oh… I am still trying to get used to the bright colors! this light blue thing is making my eyes open wide! haha! but it still is an overall good experience.

  • Savindu

    I received the update mchn

  • jag

    is that wallpaper included in the update? can’t find it in my Z Ultra. TIA

  • Savindu

    Not that much bro.. I had around 600MB

  • jag

    woah that’s a lot of percentage!! my z ultra got only 4% after lollipop update.
    you should try to repair and do a clean install (factory reset).

  • jag

    you know you can change the icon sizes in the grid size settings, right?

    Edit: oops! my bad! they already removed the option??? I can’t seem to find it.

  • jag

    aww.. that’s sad. in japan, right? they never update the phones there is it.

  • kenneth

    how u updated by ur pc

  • Fabrizio Cillo

    I updated my Z1C to Lollipop two days ago from Italy. It works fine, not many differences with KitKat, maybe little faster in opening and running apps. Some changes are tricky to be worked out, but in a few days everything will wok surely. I noticed a bug: I can’t drop icons for apps and widgets into the X REMOVE red bar, that is supposed to replace the thrash can we were used to. So once an icon is on the desktop, I found no way to get rid of it. Anybody found the same issue? Any suggestions?

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    i don’t have this problem, i just long-pressed the widget or icon i wish to remove and drag it to the top,, then done.

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    you can use sony’s official pc companion software, or if you are more advanced, you can use xperifirm and flashtool to update your phone

  • kenneth

  • Testing, gretz from Honduras.

  • Viveck Rajput

    Finally the wait is over for z ultra in india.

  • Barrie Wilson

    I would do that but I wasn’t wanting to risk damaging my phone since I have never done it before, I also tried installing xperifirm and flashtool but I couldn’t for some reason

  • raju

  • vishalshah

    What about old xperia z update ?? When it will get lolipop update ?

  • ??. ????????

  • ??. ????????
  • Viveck Rajput

    Old z ultra..? Which one please specify

  • ben

    Yeah no offence but I thought we would get it before most of the other countries. I spoke to Sony and they said they are updating the u.k but still don’t know an actual day. They said to speak to my network carrier. Iv been checking every 5 mins lol

  • alex

    nothing on my Z1C D55053 No Band Europe =(, i am the only one?

  • Questions

    Xperia Z1 Compact (D5503), Kitkat 4.4.4 14.4.A.0.157 factory pre-installed, no carrier branded, Ukraine, got update notification early morning today.

  • ??????? ???????

    Has anyone received the update for the Z1 in Germany (except O2 users)?

  • vishalshah

    Means xperia z ( c6603 )

  • Cool2B

    After struggling the whole night trying to restore back all the apps and data from KK to Lollipop, the restoration seems not that straight forward. Having the hard time to get the Z1 rooted.

    anyway, i have converted and uploaded the FTF for Customized HK and MY, if anyone need to flash it using the flashtool, below is the link:

    C6903_14.5.A.0.242_Customized MY.ftf 1.22 GB
    https://mega.co.nz/#!9t8TzBDZ!9Oti_r7Tl1L59ZXW_o3Xx8HTNNEYBzeFRJRJ_fkynAI

    C6903_14.5.A.0.242_Customized HK.ftf 1.27 GB
    https://mega.co.nz/#!okkynIyD!MaFCzPICA0_2avfXi2VrSf2RL2dQtgGmqUjZcBgNiII

    The obvious different that i found was the installed app that cater for the different region, the rest is mostly the same.

    Lastly, whoever want to get your lollipop rooted can check the below link in order to get your TWRP and titanium backup working. Else have to reinstall all the app again…Good luck!

    True, battery woes have erected again…Although I’ve the stamina mode turned on

  • Mac

    Yay! Finally my NFC works with the pill xl!
    It was about da*n time, but I still got problem with another aptX device, still saying it’s a headset when it’s a amp. So I can’t control the volume on my phone..
    Didn’t have this problem om jelly bean but started on kk.

  • Wrestler Kishore Cena

  • Wrestler Kishore Cena

    Clear audio+ sounds great for me in z1

  • Oui effectivement, c’est un thème que j’ai installé (pas besoin de root en plus) ! C’est juste une .apk a installer, puis tu applique le thème :

  • Messup7592

    Ah ah me too
    See you at the next update ;-)

  • Mac

    Yea, I have checked with the provider of the amp and they haven’t had any issues with this. I also tried connecting with a friend’s HTC one m8 and there wasn’t any problems either.

  • iodonna

    Respect to kitkat, in the Lollipop lockscreen no other widgets than the whatch can be inserted… and no more “wifi for location” is available… Why? :(

  • Parthasarathi Chakrabarti

    Lollipop downloaded and installed in my Z1 Compact in India (New Delhi). Not much difference in looks and I use a different launcher anyway. But the experience is much smoother and have not noticed any of the bugs being reported so far.

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    Ah u ll be back in few weeks for 5.1

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    You need to let the fone to settle down for a few hours before using it.
    As its just settling down and with all the cache wiped out, it will turn red hot and will be a bit laggy and even drain faster.
    But once everything is in place it ll just work fine.
    If any app crashed u need to report it to the developer as it might not be lollipop ready.
    I had the same issues and left the fone unused for 2 hours and now its just a breeze

  • Mac

    I couldn’t wait either so here I am running

  • That moment when all your devices are finally running Lollipop 5.0(.2) ! Thanks Sony :)

  • finch35

    Z1 already had a weak speaker and now they removed xloud and clear phase on sound effects!!?? Wtf sony

  • DIGITALIZEUR

    You can’t even customize the shortcuts, you have only the WIFI and BLUETOOTH in big only and you can’t move them…

    There’s tons of options that can’t be customized… A shame, an iPhone 6 Plus would be better even if it’s not that customizable…

    Fuck SONY™, my Z Ultra is much more better with CyanogenMod 12 Nightlies even if the camera app can’t record full volume, shazam doesn’t work and snapchat too because the sound cannot be recorded at a decent volume, but at least, CyanogenMod 12 is fully customizable.

    They even took six fucking months to release this… I can’t belive it.

    Getting pised of your shit SONY™

  • Super :) ! Je voudrais savoir aussi, tu pense quoi de la batterie maintenant ?
    Et aussi, t’as fait un retour usine avant d’updater, ou t’as laissé toutes tes données ?

  • WakeApp

    Je viens de le recharger à 100% là, je vais voir ce que ça va donner. Il chauffait beaucoup au début, mais c’est le temps que tout se remette en place et plus aucune surchauffe là. Oui, j’ai fais un retour usine pour avoir un phone propre sans rien dessus, donc j’ai du réinstaller les applications qu’il me fallait, mais ça m’a enlevé toute les autres merdes comme les cookies, caches etc.. ce qui est bizarre, c’est que ça m’a garder tous les médias (photos, vidéos, musiques) alors que c’était sur la mémoire interne que j’ai reset

  • Swapnil Sinha

    I Got the update just now for my Z Ultra (India)…I am still downloading and will tell u guys about the update in a while..

  • Ah, pareil chez moi, ça chauffait beaucoup, j’étais pas habitué à Lollipop et mes SMS anciens s’affichaient pas, pendant cette première demi-heure je me disais tout le temps que j’aurais jamais du faire cette mise à jour xD !! Mais la ça va beaucoup mieux et les SMS sont apparus (après 10 min de chargement page blanche dans l’appli).
    Bon j’ai pas fait de retour usine mais ça a pas l’air d’influencer, vu que tout marche nickel et rapide, ouf !

  • Azhar

    Do you have Close All button on recent apps screen?

  • WakeApp

    Ouai je pense que ça change rien, mais avec les mises à jour majeures je préfère reset pour la propreté du truc. Par contre le phone s’allume plus vite j’ai l’impression

  • WakeApp

    no, but in a future update

  • Ah moi c’est le contraire il s’allume plus lentement :/ bon je l’éteins presque jamais (je sais, c’est mal blabla…) donc ça va, et toutes façons attendre 10 sec de plus c’est pas la mort

    I updated my Z Ultra via PC Companion, pretty smooth and quick except for one: THE MESSAGING app freezes and doesn’t load my messages. I can’t even send a message. What shall I do to fix this?

  • sonyguest

    For me it also decreases faster on usage compared to KitKat. I have z1

  • Jorge Sainz

    You are right

    Maybe a bug….In the meanwhile try using Google’s Messenger

    Wow this post is gonna get 1000 comments soon

  • Dicksun Leow

    The explanation i got is most probably android is going to take time to learn app usage patterns

  • ractimansi

    Still waiting for Z1c (PT too)!

  • Got the same problem at first on my Z1 Compact ! I opened the SMS app and there was no sms and it froze all the time :/ … What I did to solve this was close all other apps, open the sms app and let it open without doing anything for 10 minutes. When I came back all the sms were back and I could send sms etc.. It’s probably because I had so many stored sms, so it took time to load them for the first time in Lollipop.
    Try what I did, and I hope it’ll work for you ;)

  • Messup7592

    I like your dark theme, where did you get it ?

  • Shekhar Mittal

    Lollipop for z1 compact has arrived in india.

  • sonyguest

    I hope Sony provides an update to fix this

  • ben

    Nope I spoke to Sony this morning and they said they have started updating phones in the UK but they don’t know when it will be done could be any day.

  • Khillo81

    Interesting. Just today a friend told me that since he updated his Samsung Galaxy S4 to lollipop, he has not been able to open any SMS messages. When he selects a message, it just highlights it without opening. I suggested he do a factory reset; if he does and it solves his problem, I’ll let you know. Good luck!

  • Mazen Baroudi

    what about Lebanon?? I’m still waiting it for the z1 C6902 model… nothing yet

  • Kliment Stamenkov

    I have the Z1 Compact (D5503) on T-Mobile AT and I was wondering If it is safe to flash the firmware from another country? Is there a possibility that I can brick my phone if I do something wrong and If there will be a SIM Lock or if it will be unlocked? And from which country would it be the best to flash the firmware from? And btw I want to use XperiFirm. Thanks in advance! :)

  • Parimal Singh

    That’s intriguing…I hope this PROJECT VOLTA delivers its promises…I had an excellent battery life on Android 4.4.4

  • pratz48

    Is there any difference if I update through OTA directly on my phone or through pc companion

  • Wrestler Kishore Cena

    No difference

  • Wrestler Kishore Cena

    Thats not dark theme,that is audio setting in walkman app

  • Wrestler Kishore Cena

    I love this wallpaper specially on my sony lollipop
    You also enjoy it
    Its is an official lollipop wallpaper on xperia z3

  • Messup7592

    Lol ok

  • ash

    you are such a troll

  • Givy Cerioni

    I had some problems using it before, so I don’t really like it, but thank you!
    Also I noticed that with lollipop is not “smooth” as before and it’s like is using more battery… – then I hope that Sony is going to an update for Walkman because I found also audio worst with the same headphones and options (with ClearAudio+) and I don’t know why :/

  • MartinDeHell

    Any information about central Europe, especially Poland?

  • Cz Bg

    I didnt get update in Serbia yet ….

  • 2sfhim

    Ok, merci. En fait je ferai l’inverse ! Je n’aime pas du tout les boutons de Lollipop, donc quand je vais passer à Lollipop, je vais remettre les boutons de KitKat (qui datent de Gingerbread !) mais que je trouve beaucoup plus jolis. Je ne savais pas si ce genre de manip était facilement faisable.

  • Ah désolé de te décevoir mais je suis sous Lollipop, et peu importe quel thème on applique, les boutons restent ceux de Sony Lollipop ! En effet, Sony à l’air d’avoir décidé d’enlever cette option de personnalisation des boutons :/

    What about the battery drain in c6906? Please help so that I can update if its not reduced since I have got the alert for an update/ Also I have rooted my C6906 so if I update with 5.0 will the root continue ?

  • MANISH GEHLOT

    What about the battery drain ? Has the battery performance improved or reduced or similar? This is the main concern for me.

  • MANISH GEHLOT

    Hey, has the battery drain bug removed after factory resetting ? I also have C6906 but reluctant to update if the battery drains faster in 5.0.

  • Parthasarathi Chakrabarti

    Not any that I noticed. What kind of issues?

  • Parimal Singh

    You’d like to do some tweaks with sounds and suddenly the bass levels would disappear. However,today I updated the walkman app to version 8.5.A.3.3 and since then it’s been good so far

  • Parimal Singh

    Actually the update would download around 1.5 GB of data.

  • wilztan

    Well I found one at the moment lol. We just need to prepare for it. Although I love most of the update. But still, most of us hate the Ui. I think the updates made our phone lack of ram. Since it’s a big updates there is. :D

  • Eno Jaska

    If you want Lollipop right now for your z1c use this download and install it with flashtool.It is working good for me.http://4upld.com/2TJeq?pt=2wwzM2fDaGdfQISIBj1nteKWwZgJWKjaKUBAngr4h8U%3D

  • Parimal Singh

    On an average the Ram Usage has increased by probably only 50-100 MB…. But which bug have you encountered? :D

  • Parimal Singh

    Works fine with my MW1. I haven’t faced such issues

  • finch35

    It’s because Sony removed the xloud and clear phase under sound effects.

  • Parimal Singh

    But I suppose the Xloud and Clearphase sound enhancements work only with the loudspeaker

  • finch35

    I guess you’re right, but I gotta say that sound quality on my z1 dramatically drops after the update.

  • Parimal Singh

    Same here.Even my Xperia S sounds better as for now

    But the walkman app has arrived on play store so maybe we’d get a fix soon.Today after updating the walkman app via play store the problem of Bass level dropping hasn’t occurred again since the lollipop update :D

  • MANISH GEHLOT

    How is the performance now after update? I also have C6906. Want to know about battery drain and any bug if you got any?

  • jag

    Face unlock is now cooler to use! Such a nice feature to have now!
    And also (if others haven’t seen it yet) the trusted devices is a great feature too! Though I already have this programmed using tasker but tasker is not working well with lollipop now so I am using the smart lock features of google.

  • Pretty good, actually. It felt like it was working on stuff in the background for a while after the update, but normal usage afterward felt like the typical drain I had before.

    Only issue with charging I continue to have is that when it’s not charging faster than it’s draining, it registers as not charging at all, so the LED flickers irregularly and the notification bar has fits.

    I can ignore that, though.

  • Krasimir Argirov

    The only things I don’t like are the ones introduced by Google… I don’t find Lollipop user friendly in many ways. For example why should we swiping twice for notification and settings, and twice to close that pannel is over my head. Multitasking window is a disaster… and so on.
    Sony on the other hand made this version of OS running smoothly, without any lags and bugs discovered for a two days of usage on Z1C. It was a bit odd with those bigger icons at first but I get used to it.
    Overall nice, smooth experience, just lacking some user friendly features but not Sony fault.

  • jag

    Wow.. a lot of hating here. I find my Z Ultra great with this new version of OS. It is more fun seeing all the animations and speedy actions. So don’t whine for the 6 months of hard work they have made.

    For the Google search bar, you can actually remove that tap holding onto the homescreen then you will see a hide option in the search bar. But it won’t be hidden when switching tabs (I also don’t know why.. maybe it’s a lollipop default). And the close all button is not in the default too.

    For the top bar in the notifications area, i think it’s the app developer who is going to modify that. I figured that out when I finished updating to lollipop then some of the big named apps have an update too (ex. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and etc.). So when you open those apps, the top bar will change in the shade of the said app.

    But if you want to change the vibrant blue color of the top bar, you can do so by changing your theme. The white theme is the darkest shade of all. That is the one I am using since I like dark colors.

    Anyway, let’s just keep on sharing the bugs we encounter and all of the hidden easter eggs we can find. Cheers!

    In India. Lollipop has arrived. No bugs yet

    Where can I find smart lock? Could you help me out please?

  • Chikku

    Pc companion didn’t work for me while updating actually… While updating via PCC the USB debugging step never worked for me (I guess mayb it has to do with my phone not working properly aftr the 1st factory reset)… So i had to cancel the update via PCC and i did it through mobile using WiFi connection…

    I’m afraid to connect it they through the Pc Again… I faced many problems bcuz of the failure of that step bt since u had the update available in update centre I got passed tat… If i didn’t have that update thr I don’t know wat i might have done… Shd i jus take it to a Sony centre??

  • 12_abc_12

    Still don’t have it on z1 compact. Three uk

  • jimmkind

    Only difference in your mind.

  • yuanhui502

    settings->security->smart lock, check it. It’s been much bettered.

  • jag

    Go in the trust agents as seen in the photo and enable the smart lock option. Then after enabling it, This “Smart Lock” option will appear in the security settings. Go in and Then you will be prompted to input pin or password. Then you will see 1) Trusted Devices 2) Trusted Place and 3) Trusted Face.

  • yuanhui502

    Agreed. Previous face-unlock was not that good, with an unacceptable accuracy. Now it has been notably proved. I activated the trusted location and trusted faces, except for the trusted equipment given that I do not own such a device. But still, I am generally satisfied by the smart lock .

  • the flash

    When I go to trusted agents then there is nothing there

  • the flash

    I am not getting it. I mean I cannot see any feature as smart lock

  • jag

    It should look like this. Then just toggle to on.

  • the flash

    No there’s nothing there

    Please help

  • minimaL

  • yuanhui502

  • Devajyoti Barman

    Here are some bugs I noticed on Z1-C6902:
    1. “No service” shown on lockscreen (Check Photo)
    2. xLoud/Clearphase missing
    3. Clearaudio+ does not work properly
    4. Battery drains too fast/Charging too slow
    5. Wifi is a bit wonky. Sometimes it doesn’t transfer data through Wifi.
    6. Apps2SD is notb working properly. It does say that apps are installed on the card, but the space occupied is on Device memory, not on the card! Basically lying!
    Other than this the update is good. No heating issue (It does get warm, but that’s natural), Camera is faster and takes better pictures. It definitely has become faster. Apps load quickly. Apps to SD is
    None, other than the battery drain is very crucial. I hope Sony fixes it and quick.

  • S.JagadeshKumar

    Please tell me how to set big icon in sony xperia z ultra. Help me…………

  • Parimal Singh

    Nopes man that clean install won’t be very helpful. I did it, but nothing got better.

    Somehow the android system is sucking on the power

  • Parimal Singh

    I guess it’s not a problem. It’s how the gallery viewers work. BTW, it’s still there. I delete that folder when I run short of storage

  • Parimal Singh

    Here’s a fix:
    However, Do you really want to do that? That might lead to you no more being able to see your images in the gallery. But if you want to try:

    open a file manager of your choice and navigate to the DCIM folder
    delete the .thumbnails directory
    create a file named .thumbnails
    open the file’s properties, and set it “read only”
    Now, as there cannot be two objects with the identical name, the gallery cannot re-create the folder. As the existing object is a file, it cannot put its thumbnails in there, either.

  • amd

    Hey how much ram you had before update it to lollipop?

  • Devajyoti Barman

    Well, I have no idea. 900 MB would be good estimate. But I never had to clear ram or close apps, even if I was playing intensive games.

  • Radu

    Hi! I have Z1 and I didn’t get the lollipop update. I’m from Romania. Does everyone know when it will appear in my country?

    Hello people I talk with Sony. They said xLoud is now part of the clear audio. So if you enable it it’s automatically enable.they said it’s not removed. It’s part of that clear audio.

    I looked around and it seems that the Carrier name bug can be resolved by toggling Airplane mode on and off. So now I finally have my carrier name showing.

    And yes I did a full factory reset too. But the other bugs are there.

    so we could have the best rom out there

    I’m on a C6906. After installing the update my battery went from 100% to around 30% in 3 hours.
    After a couple days though, it’s back to about where it was under Kit Kat. It seemed to have some work to do under the hood after the install.

  • Mac

    Have you turned on stamina mode again? Mine was off after update, making the battery pretty weak.

  • Radu

    Am desc?rcat Xperifirm ?i vad c? sunt mai multe ??ri cu lollipop. Conteaz? pe care o pun? Mersi.

  • Radu

    V?d c? pe Vodafone România este lollipop. Are vreo importanta dac? eu sunt pe Orange ?i o pun pe cea de Vodafone? :-D scuze c? te deranjez cu atâtea întreb?ri. Mersi.

    Huge Battery Drainage Problem

  • Kima

  • Kima

  • adrift21

    A glupo je mnogo, pocinjem da sumnjam da l’ ce uopste i doci…

  • ben bleho

    updates this morning z1c 1279-6978 Customized DE (Germany unbranded).
    first impressions:
    -fast, smooth and snappy, thats nice.
    -had problems with my call recorder, which did not record any more after update. Found other which does the job.
    -if you unlock with pattern: the pattern field is shown *after* wiping away the lockscreen even with deactivated lockscreen-notifications. dislike this. switched off patterns-unlocking
    -battery: can not say at the moment
    -camera: all right

  • MANISH GEHLOT

    I have rooted my C6906, not sure whether it will be removed after upgrade or not. Any improvements in the camera?

  • ben bleho

    it takes a while, then it is shown. maybe some time is needed to detect the charging rate first

  • Jacob

    also available for Z1 ??

  • Dr_Digital

    No Lollipop in Sweden, yet. (D5503). Anyone with other experiences…?

  • Fadi Obaya

    I flashed the German version. :P

  • alex

    Still nothing here either in Romania (D5503)

  • Mac

    This is mine, what applications are using the most juice?

  • xff

    Nothing in Norway (Z1c)

  • Kima

    U to ne sumnjaj, do?i ?e sigurno, samo me nervira što moramo još da ?ekamo…

  • Cyrus

    Just updated my sister’s Z1 Compact (Customised DE), but I’m still waiting on my Z1 (Customised GR). The update is actually pretty amazing and the Z1C runs smoothly. No bugs for now. The only thing quite bothering both of us is the size of the icons. They are too big for the compact screen.

  • adrift21

    Pa to… Ko zna koliko jos ._.

  • Fadi Obaya

    It’s 1.2 GB if you update via PC.

  • Razvan

    For me either. I’m from România too. Own a z1 compact not branded, and still no update…

  • Cz Bg

    how long we need to wait to lollipop come in Serbia and to our neighbors , what is so heavy there ???

  • Razvan

    Any news from Serbia?

  • Kima

    not yet… :(

  • Kima

    so Sweden, Norway, Serbia, Romania still nothing…

  • Razvan

    Still waiting. But why? I should get it until now….

  • Kima

    don’t know… I hope it will come tomorrow ’cause it’s friday (end of week).

  • aatu

    nothing in finland….wasnt nordic countries suppose to be first to get this update?

  • Razvan

    I dont know, to wait for official update, or to flash it my self…

  • Razvan

    Do i lost anything if i dont wait for official update, and flash it my self?

  • Kima

    I’m gonna wait for official and then I’m gonna do a factory reset, I want a fresh new phone :D

  • Mark

    My Walkman got messed up after the update. I can’t change the artist names no matter how many times I try. The Update Center is missing too.

  • finch35

    Update center is not there anymore. They merged it with the what’s new app

  • Freepat 75014

    I got it last night. Migration went OK. Only one Google Services App did not transition right away, but as some other Apps were requesting it, it got reloaded a few minutes after. Interface is smooth, found nothing missing or problematic. Only have the feeling that the phone is now heating more, especially when I turn the camera on, sucking its battery faster.
    Overall very happy.

  • Totally agree with you, I got it 2 days ago on my Z1 Compact (in France too), and it is awesome, the battery is amazing, for me it is even better than on Kitkat, and the UI looks nice and stylish, the keyboard is even faster than before…
    I agree, I don’t see why I should upgrade to a newer Z phone. I was considering a Z3 Compact, but it just has a slightly bigger display and almost the same specs. Also, the Z3 Compact has plastic on the sides, while my Z1 Compact is made with metal on the sides so it looks much better !

    Anyways, thanks for this great update Sony :)

  • Completely off-topic question (sorry lol) :
    What’s your wallpaper (the one on the lockscreen) ? It looks awesome ! Could you give me a link to it or just say me where you got it :) ?

    für das z1 sieht es bei uns laut xperifirm derzeit (16.04.15, 23:12) so aus:
    customized DE: 14.4.A.0.157
    o2 DE: 14.5.A.0.242
    Telekom DE: 14.4.A.0.157
    vodafone DE: 14.5.A.0.242
    also: für o2 und vodafone ist das update verfügbar, für die ungebrandeten und die Telekom-Geräte noch nicht. Dauert aber sicher nicht mehr lange.

  • Badr

    The update is not yet Rolling out in France Orange if i will use VPN can i get the update ? If not there is any idea how to get it without flashing…

  • Zafiro

    In spain nothing… i think that is better flashing the xperia z1, in France is ready 3 times with diferent company.

  • Parimal Singh

    No,I think Z1C owners have got this problem,Z1 is okay in terms of battery performance

  • jag

    you can change that in the sounds ans notification settings.

  • Parimal Singh

    You have Z1 or Z1c,,,,, and how’s the battery life?

    Bro i’ve checked that already. It’s on by default. Still i sometimes get the notification light and sometimes don’t.

  • Mohit Wangu

    seems like a facelift of the kitkat version…i’m not liking it very much…too much hype and nothing much to show for it…i’m not able to see any notifications on lock screen after i setup my corporate email account…it forces me to set up a secure lockscreen but then completely blocks away the notifications…i can see them after unlocking the phone..in the taskbar…also screen should light up when a notification arrives

    Maybe you are in priority mode. If you see a star in your notifications tray then you should disable your priority mode.

    jesi li ti dobio update ? Ne razum sta je problem da i mi dobijemo ….

  • alex

    Well if it makes you feel better you’re not the only one without a lollipop = (

  • Kima

    Još uvek ne… To ide postepeno po regionima, državama, problem je što to ide dosta sporo… Nije samo Srbija bez apdejta, nisu dobili ni u Nema?koj, Engleskoj, zemljama Skandinavije, Rumuniji, Bugarskoj itd…

  • Cz Bg

    znam da ni oni nisu dobili , ali mrzi me vise da cekam … a vidim uglavnom negativne kometare o lollipopu

  • Kima

    Koliko sam ja shvatio, Lollipop je na Soniju odra?en odli?no, samo neki sitni problemi koje ?e rešii vrlo brzo, ina?e skoro da nema bagova. Probleme imaju uglavnom ljudi koji ne znaju kako sa telefonom… Kad budeš instalirao nadogradnu, obavezno uradi factory reset, da ti pobriše sve iz memorije telefona i vrati ga na fabri?ko stanje, nakon toga ?e raditi kao nov…

  • Cz Bg

    Ok, ho?u. Sad samo možemo da ?ekamo. Nadam se da ?e ubrzo pristici

  • Kima

    Upravo tako, samo da ?ekamo… Ina?e postoji mogu?nost da flešuješ firmware, ali bih ja ipak sa?ekao oficialni apdejt baš za naš region…

    Im using flashed Lolipop version, im from Croatia, I am very satisfied. Battery does a great job, and the phone is working smoothly, camera app is wayyyy much faster in response, then before. I only dont like on home screen and in the app menu too big app icons. So far, works like a charm!

    For those trying to restore update.zip using titanium backup is not recommended. The performance lollipop is downgraded and home screen freeze for 1-2 sec. Recommended to hard reset after rooted and fresh install all the apps from play store.

  • Igor Helal

    one question: factory reset is obrigatory or NOT to upgrade?

  • I plan to flash Lollipop onto my Z1 when it’s available in Australia, how would I go about rooting it again??

  • Amirul Syafiq

    No its not. I downloaded it from somewhere… Don’t remember

  • cyber

    Did you do a reset factory? I have z1 compact it has battery draining issue :(, and charging speed is so slower than kitkat.

  • dino

    No option to disable lock screen!?

  • Jaison Jose

    It runs smooth and very fast, no lagging when using apps but ICONS are really ugly.

    In previous versions and xperia sets used to have the best classy “signature icons/design” with appropriate size but now in this Lollipop version, ions are large and made ugly worst look. Before all used to buy sony sets by seeing these designs but now disappointed.
    I wish to go back to 14.4 but am helpless now :( :(
    Sony please try to update this issue and make customers satisfied. Looking forward for new update of change of icons size like 14.4

  • amd

    How much ram you have

  • Karnnan K

    If u watch in Video app… U can c that ur colour representation got reduced. I feel it’s giving too dark video…

  • Chikku

    Here’s my personal review of lollipop on xperia z1(c6902) after using it for 2 days now

    *SOUND:
    1)external speaker sound has become more soft
    2)even when i connect my earphones sound seems to b low… However it is more clearer than before with less noise
    3)jus for ur info xlouud is no longer present (i don’t really use this)
    4)clear phase is still present (settings>sounds and notifications>audio settings>clearaudio+)
    5)sounds during call seems to have improved.. Itz more loud and clear.. Ie itz more audible now

    *DISPLAY ,THEMES,PERSONALISATION, etc:
    1)has improved and looks more pleasing..
    2)Autobrightness is no longer available in the notification dropdown so ull have to set it manually from settings.. However i felt Autobrightness isn’t as responsive as in KK.. I can’t see the screen sometimes in bright sunlight..
    3)themes are okay i felt…
    4)lockscreen looks more better than in KK

  • wilztan

    Hmm 9 hours it said, well pretty quick for a Z1 family…

  • jag

    I think we just let our phone get familiarized with the new os first as what one commenter here says. If after 1 week it is still draining fast then Let’s try the clean install.

    But i think we only play with our phones too often like me. Swiping and swiping without any reason. Because It is just too beautiful i can’t stop looking at my new phone experience.

  • Mihiran Aveesha

    I also tried that but no.its not working

  • Jaison Jose

    Free RAM of 650MB :)……am serious, its fast in opening different apps as compared with 14.4….also interesting thing is – installed 97 apps :D :D
    but not satisfied for their design of apps (looking huge :( :(….)
    would be better if RE-SIZE APPS option is provided.

  • Yes you’re right, I have Lollipop on my Z1 Compact and now that I’m not using it as often as just after the update, the battery lasts ways longer ! The standby time is incredible with Stamina mode on (I always have it on, from 100% to 0% :p) and the battery seems to last for about the same time it did last on Kitkat… :)

  • eclectice

    To disable chrome web history integration with android, go to chrome settings and disable merge tabs and apps feature

  • jag

    Yup! I’ve noticed that too. Because it’s a Saturday so i just leave my phone in one corner aNd so yeah.. the battery holds it’s charge Like the way it used to be in kitkat.

  • ben

    Still no update in the UK :(

  • Roger Carp

    I flashed the Singapore lollipop using xperifirm and flashtool and I have no issues so far. Battery is solid. I only have a problem with the app icon size in the app menu. Huge. Some if them are even blurry. I think they took the z2 or z3 launcher and put it there. Different dpi than z1

  • ??. ????????

    Most of u complain that there’s no lollipop, or if u do have it theres some bugs.. Thats all im hearing lately.Chill people! Could it be that Sony chose exactly in which locations to release it first to complete updating to a stable version of lollipop. They’re doing this for YOU! so stop moaning ;D lol

    you have it branded or unbranded phone?

    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 option for the next track..can someone help me figure it out? Thanks

  • bee

    why does the option for music playback when your phone is locked gone? After the update i cant seem to figure it out..

  • bee

    No playback option just the album cover..

  • Boyke Triono Prabowo

    Anybody have problem with the battery indicator? I had C6802 when I upgraded to lollipop my battery indicator is messed up..for example, sometimes it is showing 78% a few seconds later the number changed to 97 and sometimes to 69%. And when I shake the device or slam the device the battery indicator always changed to 50 percent and not charging. Now i’m running kitkat again and the problem is gone.

    Sorry for my bad English.

  • Walid

    Is it genuine?? I was asking for the official update from Sony updates instead of cracking.
    And will it affect my phone by doing this?

  • SM

    When arriving update 5.0. lollipop on sony xperia z1 in Croatia on the calf two network?

  • Chikku

    Is it that u can’t set any wallpaper?? Stock and custom..??

    Mayb u have disabled some system application which weren’t supposed to… Try enabling all system apps… Only disable what u have downloaded…

    If the problem still persists repair ur device with pc companion

    Anyone from France Company “Orange” get lollipop ? Or know when we will get this suck :/

  • alex

    The only thing that I do not appreciate at all the lollipop and the sound in the headphones via walkman. I did everything but the bass and inesistnete. The sound and “dry” it seems that the bass in songs it does not exist. Walkman asks me to update, download laggiornameno and then freezes because I can not install it says. I am the only with this “problem”?

    i have firmware version 14.5.a.0.157 and i didn’t get lollipop yet.. why?

  • William Norman

    Hi from Aussie land. Any news on when we will finally receive the Lollipop update for our Z1 phones? I’ve done a bucket load of Googling and found zip info. I have an unlocked, Network Provider free Z1 and no notification on any new update. I have my phone connected to my laptop all day, every day running Sony PC Companion, just hopping for the chance of the update. Build # current is 14.4.A.0.108. Model # C6903.

  • Chikku

    The bass is better and more clear for me… Did u try changing ur headphone type?? And wat abt surround sound type?? Try changing those

  • Angyal Ádám

    Still nothing here either in Hungary (D5503) :( Hungary , Central Europe …. ? When something comes in?

  • Máté Berkes

    Dettó , viszont azt nem tudom hogy ez most szolgáltató függ? vagy a sony miatt van , én speciel vodafonos vagyok.

  • Angyal Ádám

    Hali, már 13.-a óta várom és semmi, az ukránoktól kezdve bulgárokig mindenkinek megjött , de nekünk és az angoloknak, slovákoknak semmi. Szerintem a Central Europe-ot kell várnunk. Már olvastam valahol olyat, hogy lehet nem is kapjuk meg, csak majd egy újabb verziót. De nézem óránként az XperiFirm-et, hátha…. :) Ja és az enyém gyárilag független.

  • Bob

    Still nothing for Nordic Combined (Customized NCB). Model # 6903

  • Bob

    Only Vodafone … U must wait for Central European version ..
    /T and Telenor are allways slower than Voda.. unfortunately/

  • Bob

    Tulajdonképp bármilyen FW-t rátölthetsz, legfeljebb lesz egy pár el?re telepített alkalmazásod, melyek az adott szolgáltatóhoz / régióhoz tartoznak.. ill. animáció az elején, stb..

  • Máté Berkes

    Üdv! szintén release óta várom és hát én is gyakran nézegetem az XperiFirmet de telenor meg t-mobile már másnap fent volt . Az meg hogy nem kapjuk meg, vagyis ha így is van legalább bejelentenék vagy tájékoztatnának .

  • Máté Berkes

    De egyébként teljesen igazad van , én eddig azért nem csináltam mert hogy csak jön már OTA-n aztán semmi.

  • Jaissal S

    can you tell me which number of update?

  • Vitor Marques

    Just updated in Portugal. Unbranded.

  • Nerijus

    Just popped out update notification on Xperia Z1 Compact, but no update on big one. I am from Lithuania, phones are unbranded

  • Khillo81

    Just saw my colleague’s Xperia Z1C running Lollipop and I have to say, without the blue theme (especially the blue status bar), it looks quite classy. Dammit! I want Lollipop for my Xperia Z1. I can’t believe that O2 and Vodafone got the update but not my unbranded phone. Is there an agreement that those carriers get the update first? I can’t think of any other explanation.

  • Razvan

    It is working great, but like your, even if i flashed 3 different carrier, from 3 different regions, did factory reset, it’s draining the battery more faster then Kit Kat… It seem’s like the Display is eating mAH out of battery…
    Even with stamina mode on, it barrely stay “alive” for 1 day…

  • Dan

    O2 got the update? Where are you?

  • Khillo81

  • Zafiro

    I’m flashing the xperia z1 C6903 with the filmaware “Customized ES” and for now is very good, the sound is more high that before, the battery is normal, the Software is more fast now and more RAM free have it, the bad for now is that, the WIFI is more slow that before for now.

    PD: sorry for the bad spelling.

    i have a similar problem, wi-fi works fine, but i can’t use mobile data (4G), someone else???

  • jag

    If trusted face is enabled in smart unlock, there won’t be a prompt to scan your face. you will just see a “people icon” glowing at the bottom then you will only need to stare at the screen but like holding it when texting. If succesful, the “people icon” will change to a “unlock icon”.

  • jag

    hmm.. i don’t know about. i haven’t had those problem before. maybe you need to repair your software via pc companion.

    dude any samsung phones can support for sinhala. even jellybean update. that’s there os . others not. even google nexus not support for our language. sony and other brands not support. even pure android nexus.

    update: but some sinhala unicode websites supports. I will send the screenshot. if google support for that unicode then you can see. otherwise nope. samsung and nokia is different.

    I want to share two problems in Z1 compact after the update :

    1. When I add my work outlook account to the mail application ( Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync) it blocks all notification at the locking screen. At ‘Nine’ mail this problem doesn’t exists.

    2. every time when i open the lock screen the phone application is pope up.

    Solution?

  • Kike Niclós

    The update is 14.5.A.0.242.

    MY Z1 AFTER UPDATE BATTARY DRINING FAST ANY SOLUTION

  • ben bleho

    Installed 5.0.2 last thursday on my z1c (1279-6978)
    -while using the same apps battery lasts longer than before with 4.4.4 – very good. Most people play around a lot after updating which is why the battery seems to drain faster than before – but after some days of normal use you will see, that project volta does its job.
    -overall faster and snappier performance, better graphics
    -Andoid L seems to be a real milestone, I like the update very much, thank you google & sony. There is more difference and palpable progress from 4.4.4 to 5.0.2 than between 4.1.x and 4.4.x, this is my personal impression.
    I like my “new” z1c, after one year of use its like a new phone.

  • funkydopeman

    Dar iki siol nera Z1 :(

  • ben

    My mates z3 has been updated in the uk. But I’m having the same problem as you I have a z1c and it’s still not been updated hopefully will be done in the next couple of days. Its a shame they can’t give you an exact date as I thought it was ment to be done last Monday.

  • ben

    I’m thinking about doing the update myself but don’t have a clue on how to do it.

  • DeeJayFire

    anyone about anything in UK?

  • ractimansi

    No, not at all. Unbranded Z1c here.

    Same my. Its been released ages ago and still nothing :-(

    sure send me some :D

  • Vitor Marques

    Im having problems receiving Hotmail and Gmail emails notifications when locked. Only when i unlock the phone i receive the notifications. I have tested without stamina mode.

  • Z1 compact

    Messaging application in ultra stamina mode is not working when open a thread, can anyone confirm this bug? on z1 compact

  • Z1 compact

    actually kitkat and previous updates were highly customized by sony, but lollipop is not much customized, like messaging,call application and notification drawer is same like original aosp lollipop, it seems sony is deeply integrating its ui on lollipop or probably lollipop don’t allow customizing default apps of andriod except icon changing.

  • Z1 compact

    check ultra battery stamina mode, is there any issue with messaging app in ultra stamina mode? try sending a message. it force closes suddenly.

  • Nerijus

    Ir aš laukiu

  • Nope it works fine on my Z1 Compact ! :o

  • Peter Krisan

    Doesn’t work for me neither. Z Ultra. :(

  • Peter Krisan

    Do factory reset and cache swipe.

  • Peter Krisan

    You are so right. My other favourite case is when people are saying e.g. “Samsung Galaxy S4 already got Lollipop months ago”. Yes, but they didn’t even get any new features from the new Galaxy phones, such as “Ultra Power Saving mode”. At least Sony has made e.g. Ultra Stamina Mode available for all Z model. And more.

    What the hell i can’t update(XZ1) it to lollipop! What is wrong with my phone >.< Someone help i don't want to root the phone, if i wanted to i would have done it ages ago *-*

  • Bob

    What is your CDA number? – not all of the Xperia’s get till now the Lollipop upgrade.

    Try typing in your dialer *#*#7378423#*#* then go to “service info” then “software info” you’ll see that the Customization number and the application software ID is the same.

    Then start XperiFirm, choose Xperia Z1/Z1s Homani, then look at your model (CDA).

  • Dhama

    same issue with me !!

  • Mihiran Aveesha

  • Jaissal S

    Anyone in the UK on Tesco Mobile with C6903 variant received the update? Nothing yet for me at the moment. I’m checking Update Centre on my phone everyday, and I’m checking PC Companion everyday too. I know its only been a week and a half since roll out but still.

    BTW are there issues with the new build? Is that roll out is having problems?

  • Bob

    :) Core of Life has a same “problem” .. here is the answer.. (a part of it)

    “What is your CDA number? – not all of the Xperia’s (Z1) get till now the Lollipop upgrade… Sony rolling out continuously…

    Try typing in your dialer *#*#7378423#*#* then go to “service info” then “software info” you’ll see that the Customization number and the application software ID is the same.

    Then start XperiFirm, choose Xperia Z1/Z1s Honami, then look at your model (CDA).”

    After the Lollipop update on my Xperia Z1 Compact, D5503, the first couple of days the phone worked quite smoothly, better than before. But after that the phone started having an tremendous lag which is very frustrating and disappointing. There is a huge lag in every activity, whether to unlock, or open any app. Anybody faced this problem? And what is a possible solution. Reset is the last option I want to consider.

  • Vasilis K.

    Notin here yet! F@#$ you Sony!!!!!! After 10 days!!! Is it so hard to publish a schedule of the update instead of letting us checking every F@#ing day and bull$hiting us with “during the following weeks”, “next week”, “today starts rolling” and $hit???

  • Harshit Goel

    I am using xperia z1 compact and I just updated to lollipop. I noticed that some of the toggles like mobile data and location are unavailable when the screen is locked but appear in the notification settings tray when device is unlocked..is anyone else too facing this thing?

  • Chikku

    How to get notifications to appear in the notification bar and not on lockscreen when screen is locked on lollipop??

  • Damn

    upgraded to lolipop yesterday, but when i try to set the ringtone, phone doesn’t pick the audio file.any clues?

  • Haditya E. R

  • Utilizator GM

  • Jim

    Seems to have killed the left sound channel on my Z1 Compact. Tried several headphones, same result. Any ideas?

  • bosas200

    Any news for baltic and nordic region?

  • Bob

    Nothing.. I’am still waiting for the Nordic Combined..

  • Jaissal S

    Gosh, i can’t remember much now. It was from XDA Developers website I think. Let me try and find it again…

  • Tweety

    It would be great if Sony gave us the schedule (timetable) with dates on which the upgrade is available.

  • Jaissal S
  • Jaissal S

    I am liking the new look that Lollipop brings :) The notifications are handy too. Icons are bigger too for us Z1 owners. What like is that the phone hasn’t slowed down much which is great. I will see how the battery performance goes over the next few weeks. I updated Tuesday night btw,

  • Pius Ho

    Turns out I was wrong, but I’m not mad anyway. I’m just glad I had lolipop

  • Ricardo Ca

    For at least 5 days there is no new markets/operators receiving the update. I tried to ask Sony about it and they respond the same thing ” Updates may vary…”.

  • Kike Niclós

    Hi mates.
    According your recent experience in this new Lollipop version with bugs or problems, do you recommend to upgrade to Lollipop version? Be honest, please.
    I’m worried that should be better to wait. What do you think?

  • Tweety

    Soon!

    God only knows when the rest of us will receive Lollipop.

  • Nerijus

    Hi, I have updated Xperia Z1 Compact to lollipop and I don’t have any mentioned bugs. Exept battery, but in my case it’s not a bug, because after update I was playing whit phone and settings more than average day.

  • Ricardo Ca

    That’s true.

  • M.H Nazeri

    unfortinately I have this problem too,It’s sony’s rom

  • Tweety

    Whenever I put this question to the local Sony representative in my country I get the same answer: as soon as we find out, we’ll let you know. Usually, I find out about the new firmware before they do. The same happens with the Sony”s user forum at talk.sonymobile.com. No one knows.

    It is late Friday evening in my country. So, nothing will happen till the next week when we will ask again and again about the firmware.

    No one cares to explain.

  • Vasilis K.

    Finnaly I flashed it with Flashtool! Thank you Sony for such a beautiful update, and f@k you for keeping us waiting so long!

  • Khillo81

    OK, here is my review of Android Lollipop 5.0.2 on a Sony Xperia Z1 after 24 hours of installation: the screenshots above really do not do the interface justice; it is indeed beautiful. The system fonts are gorgeous and the bigger icons take a bit of getting used to, but the overall effect is elegant and both make the screen look smaller and cozier. I think the dark themes will look nicer still and indeed Sony is still the best Android UI out there. Of course, the best addition are the lock screen notifications which is the main reason I upgraded and the fact that customizations were added (you can either display all noticiations, hide sensitive information, or choose not to have any notifications) should appeal to the privacy freaks out there. Another cool feature is the smart lock where you can set a place or device where the screen will remain unlocked. Now I don’t have to input my pin code when I’m home and I’m liking the convenience. The apps to SD card seems to work and I have transferred some of the biggest apps on my phone to the SD card and this seems to have freed some space on my phone. One feature that nobody had mentioned was the fact that changing keyboards is now much easier: there’s a keyboard button on the lower right corner of the screen when you’re typing, pressing that button will bring up a dialog box where you can choose a third-party keyboard. This was one feature that is found in iOS and that I had missed in Android. Before, on Android, you had to swipe down from the top of the screen while typing, choose the option for input method selection, and then choose your keyboard. Now it’s just clicking the keyboard button on the bottom of the screen. But it isn’t all roses: there are things that are gone in this version which I had liked. There is no longer the option to add widgets to the lock screen. I used to keep the Track ID there in order to quickly identify a song without having to unlock my phone. Now it’s only the clock widget there (music widget appears below when you’re listening to music). The old mail app had the option to split the screen whereby the email list is on one half and the other half displays the selected message. This is no longer possible. The old calender app used to show the appointments of the day as colored bars on the side of each day. That is now gone and there’s only a dot instead. Google’s Keep now comes preinstalled, which for me is one more app I’m not going to use (we already have Evernote and Sony’s Notes for note taking) but this is the price we have to pay for using customized versions of Google’s Android. I have also encountered the problem with the volume rocker not working in Walkman/Music. For me, switching ClearAudio+ off and on again solved the problem. The music is also as loud as (if not louder) than before. For the battery, of course, it is too soon to tell but in the morning and after a whole night of charging, the battery consumption appeared to be even better than on KitKat (removed phone from charger at 7 and by 11 it was at 88%). However, by the end of the day, the battery had drained to 39% (medium use with Stamina mode on while in the office). The biggest offenders were Android OS and the mail app. Of course, the OS had not spent 24 hours on my phone and the mail app was apparently reindexing all my messages (have both Gmail and Outlook accounts linked). So, I’ll let you all know after a week of use. But for now, it’s mostly positive with a mix of: ‘aw, they removed that feature??’ thrown in.

  • Tech Gospel

    Does this update reset the phone and apps? Or do the apps and content stay the same?

  • tiangiron

    Hi. I’ve updated my Xperia Z Ultra (C6833) to 5.0.2 through PC Companion last night. Personally, I
    like the Notification/Status bar of KitKat 4.4.4 than Lollipop’s, and even the Recent Apps function. But I do like the new take on the lockscreen. Overall I’d say the UI is buttery
    smooth and fluid. BTW, any Z Ultra users here who have also upgraded to 5.0?
    How’s the camera?

  • Harshit Goel

    There is a very fast battery drain in the ULTRA STAMINA MODE of xperia z1 compact after lollipop update.. the battery lasts less than it does in normal mode.

  • ben

    It doesn’t wipe anything mate

  • ben

    Mine drained quick so I turned it off and on again then stuck it on charge. Iv not had any problems since. If anything the battery’s better than before

  • Kliment Stamenkov

    Was there a SIM lock after you flashed it? From which market did you flash it and from which market is your phone? :)

  • Kliment Stamenkov

    Thanks! :)

  • Harshit Goel

    was it in the ultra stamina mode?

  • Phil Edwards

    VIBRATE ONLY seems to have vanished, unless I’m just not seeing it. Is this the case? Surely they haven’t removed that facility?u

  • Wendy Toulmin

    i cant receive calls since my phone updated with lollipop and i can’t send texts…help

    It was unbranded customized for Switzerland, and I flashed the Greek customization. It was not locked before and neither is now.

  • tiangiron

    My Antutu Benchmark results: Xperia Z Ultra running KitKat 4.4.4 (left) and after updating to Lollipop 5.0.2 (right). Slight bump up but these numbers translate to buttery smooth overall performance (and even before the update). Thumbs up for this

  • Andy D Sixth

  • Cz Bg

  • WakeApp
  • Kima

    :(((

  • Kliment Stamenkov

    Does it matter from which country I flash the firmware, or I can flash ALL of them as long as they are for my phone model (D5503)? And does the network (GLOBAL-LTE, TELEKOM-LTE, EURO-LTE) matter?

  • Andy D Sixth

    Thanx… Did the hard reset.. Didnt work..
    I updated my phone using xperifarm.. Do they give something different??

  • amd

    You used Sony pc companion to repair your phone? Or just formatted? This update is way better than kitkat. No lagging or anything. I think you using some older apps or something.

  • Marius G. Mann

    Verify if you have the newest version of Sony pc companion and chose “repair my phonr/tabket” option, by pressing “check for updates”, you will receive answer ” your phobr/tablet already has the newest….” and then… “repair…”. Use the original data cable… It’s impossible to have problems what this update… Sony never missed enithing.. :)

  • Rouhollah Abdolvahab

    There is some bugs in the version(at least in my z1 compact):
    1. it will reset some times when I connect a usb flash!
    2. in ultrastamina mode the sms program will stop from time to time, some of shortcuts also changed after restarting to the normal mode.
    3. after restarting the default sms program will be changed to the sony’s
    most of the problems are related to the move to sd in which activated in this version but in a buggy way!

  • naveen

    Why Sony didn’t include this auto wake-up

  • Vlad

    Plase help me
    Why The slide unlocking is unavaileable on my xperia Z1? Whats wrong? I have updated my phone a few weeks ago, but this problem appeared today

  • Tweety

    Did you check the APN name of your mobile provider in phone settings? Perhaps, this may be the problem.

  • naveen

    Thanks for responding tweety. I resolved the issue. The basic thing I forgot to do is to install Internet settings :) after the update. Now it’s working fine.

  • Bora Kurt

    X-loud ?s not working after the lollipop.Video quality is little lower .Chrome got some bugs.Sounds is very quite . Need improments and bug fixed

  • hubaman

    i wait 2 weeks for lollipop.I disspointed……

  • TheCountessOfRochester

    I despise it! Before I Updated I’d only had my
    new handset two weeks and battery life with HUGE use lasted 5 days the moment I updated to lollipop battery only lasts a day and half. The icons for apps are horrid big nasty and unsightly! The disgusting turquoise strip on everything is horrible the colours interrupt my themes and can’t be changed. The apps like calculator and alarm and calendar are horrible cheap and childish looking. And worse yet I have NO vibration or tone on texts!!!! I’ve sent it off for repair and all they did was take out the update and put it back in and it’s given me the same problem. I’ve had it factory reset 4 times. I NEED to be notified when texts come in for business reasons. I have since had to download textra for texts and now can get a text tone and vibrate through that app.
    I hate the fact that notifications for EVERYTHING come up in a big white box at the top telling everyone who looks at my phone my text message contents etc! It took me 5 days to figure out how to stop these which I don’t necessarily want to do I just wanted it darker neater and not so bold and big like it was before! The whole update has every setting in weird obscure places that make no sense it is very hard to find many things in settings and options.toy phone and apps are now slower and the auto rotate screen freezes and often doesn’t work! The whole thing is utterly rubbish and horrible and I was promised on sending it off for repair that they’ll downgrade the update and they didn’t and then told me this is not possible! I absolutely despise this and no longer want my phone because of all this rubbish. When are you going to fix all the bugs? 5 minutes before update everything was perfect and 5 minutes after everything was awful.

  • Nerijus

    It is disabled because you have added exchange account.

  • iono

    already release. check on your pc companion. mine is z1 too, indonesian.

  • Chirico69

    any problems with xperia z1 c6902 lollipop update? anyone in phlippines?

  • amd

    do you have the original data cable?

  • Bob

    I flashed Customized UK to my Z1 – 6903 Nordic Combined (Customized NCB).. Everything works fine, no bugs, no hiccups, no problems… :)

  • Bob

    use another ROM .. same as your phone (e.g. 6903), but other “brand” .. e.g U have an Customized GER so U can use Customized UK .. band type must be the same.. e.g. Europe LTE ..

  • Bob

    Use an another ROM… so simple :) – if U’re unbranded / customized

  • Sunil

    Everything is excellent. Battery life is also fine. But while making calls/receiving calls when I put my the phone near to the ear the screen is switched off as expected but the touch is still active. Anybody facing same issue?

  • Bob

    Yes.. :( it seems like..

  • Bob

    Uhh.. what a silly solution… U have to move the volume button down, then phone switch the Vibration mode.. than U must tap to “mute” label under the volume bar .. So the phone is in vibration mode BUT muting all of the sounds (U have to select “all” in the radiobutton section)

  • Haditya E. R

    wow.. how was it? is it lagging or not? I just flashed it from Xperiafirmware (http://xperiafirmware.com/8-firmware/42-sony-xperia-z1-c6903) but it came out with Chinesse (HK) language and it’s a bit laggy. do I have to downgrade it to 4.4.4 then update it from the pc companion??

  • bosas200

    Can you check if you have lithuanian language?

  • Bob

    I dont know… it works on Hungarian language also..

  • bosas200

    It would be nice if you check if there is that language in settings

  • Bob

    Check… the following languages are exists: ( I dont know, which is Lithuanian)
    – Latviesu
    – Lietuviu

  • bosas200

    Thanks, its there i think i will flash it today too

  • Bob

    Nice.. but be carefully .. make it only, if U have an originally (factory) customized ROM.. and your band type is the same as in the rom what you want to flash… (e.g. Europe LTE)

  • bosas200

    I have baltic customized version

  • Bob

    It will be fine

  • MANISH GEHLOT

    My Xperia Z1 C6906 is performing horrible in terms of battery drain. Android OS is eating around 35-40% of the battery all the time. Updated on day before yesterday. Will it improve or I have to downgrade it to 4.4.4 since battery backup is the most crucial to me.

  • MANISH GEHLOT

    How is the battery drain now? Android OS is eating around 35-40% battery in my C6906 Xperia Z1.

  • MANISH GEHLOT

    So how was the battery performance now?? Mine is not good, android OS is eating around 40% of the battery. C6906 Xperia Z1.

  • Jaissal S

    My battery is actually having no problems at all. Nothing unusual. Android OS for me is only using 8% or so. Try reducing the animations and etc in developer options. Might make a difference.

  • Jaissal S

    Battery drain usually occurs after updates if i’m not wrong. It should return to normal after a few days.

  • Jaissal S

    I had this issue on 4.4.4 also. When I’ve finished the call or I take the phone away from my ear…I notice that the notification window has been swiped down somehow. This does still occur on Lollipop too.

  • Jaissal S

    Is anyone facing any problems with the Sony Email app? It takes a long time to load any email…even while its loading…the data arrows don’t appear. Email app was working great in Kit-Kat.

  • Bob

    Network does matter…
    Country not.. so U’ve e.g. customized GER you can put on it a customized UK …

  • Azar

    no its bcz u may have a vpn inside the PHONE settings.

  • Azar

    so do i, but that doesnt disable swipe.

  • Khillo81

    Hi Manish. Well, the first three days the battery was even better than on KitKat. However, today I noticed that the phone was heating up and some apps were interfering with Stamina mode. Android was also draining the battery at 30%. Since I had not done it before or after upgrading to Lollipop, I cleared the cache partition and forced a hard reset. The phone seems better now: it has cooled down, Stamina mode is working well and Android’s consumption of the battery is lower. I’ll report again in a few days.

  • Martin

    Still no Lollipop update for Xperia Z1 Compact in Denmark. :(

  • Tweety

    Still no Lollipop for Z1 compact unbranded in Croatia.

  • Kima

    Still no Lollipop for z1 compact in Serbia, unbranded :D

  • Dion

    I upgraded to Lollipop on my Z1 Compact last night, and the main issue I have is that my contact photos which are synced with Facebook are now blurry, pixelated and low res, while before the update they were high res… is anyone else finding this? And does anyone else have a solution?
