Thanks @Team_XperiaZ3FO!

  • Number firmware combines more with Android 5.1

  • Ayad Fahos

    Maybe fix sound and all bug

  • Eduardo Otero

    But it is not. This means 5.1 will be 23.3

  • Eduardo Otero

    Remember HK was the only country without Lollipop. This isn’t a fix but is the first roll for Lollipop on HK

  • Naresh Gundu

    I hope it fixes the speaker SOUND. I literally can’t hear anything even on full volume.

  • Naresh Gundu

    Are you deaf? And then I am trolled.

  • mountain

    But since when is Hong Kong a country?

  • Igor Eisberg

    From my research, this release (23.2.A.1.62) vs the first Lollipop release for Z3 (23.1.A.0.690), I noticed 3 interesting things:
    * Added Wireless LDAC support in SoundEnhancement.apk (http://www.sony-asia.com/microsite/hiresaudio/ldac.html).
    * An updated “lib/soundfx/libsonysweffect.so” file, which is responsible for all Sony sound effects, and without it the sound is poor in volume and quality. Most likely updated to support LDAC, not sure though.
    * Some updated APKs and fixes in camera add-ons.

  • Eduardo Otero

    Please forgive mi ignorance. I don’t really know what is the political situation on Hong Kong.

  • Igor Eisberg

    Can’t say you’re right. This is actually an update. Some regions are chosen for “experimental” releases, just like the Baltic region was the experimental region for the initial Lollipop release, so is this. See my post above – among some features I haven’t looked into yet, there’s the obvious LDAC (hi-res sound over Bluetooth) support.

  • Willy Mularto

    Not yet in Indonesia

  • Eduardo Otero

    You’re not getting the point. The Hong Kong Z3 D6653 hasn’t received any Lollipop Update. Yes it is not the first Lollipop release globally but it is the first release for Hong Kong

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    well it’s quite a mess. I am sure you can get some ideas by reading BBC international-China section. I think they are argueing something about free elections, that sort of thing

  • Rene Pedroso

    Exactly, I just downloaded lollipop for the first time

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    you are right, except that most ppl in HK don’t really care about their phone versions
    edit i can confirm that Z2 in HK does get lollipop before Z3

  • Eduardo Otero

    Good idea. I’ll take some to read it

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    no i think it will be definitely at least 24.X, or maybe 25.X, 26.X

  • Eduardo Otero

    That’s what I meant. Z2 got 23.1.x and Z3 got 23.2.x

  • Eduardo Otero

    That’s what I meant.

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    go read this: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-32480807
    i think it sums it up pretty well. Although i am HK citizen, BBC tends to be my best bet for unbiased news reporting. Those HK newspapers… just messy

  • Eduardo Otero

    No no no, it will be 23.x, 24, 25 or 26 are for other Xperia phones.

  • Igor Eisberg

    You said “This isn’t a fix”, I’m saying – it is. Maybe for HK it’s the first Lollipop, but if anybody else wants to update, they can just flash it, and they get additional features and fixes.

  • Eduardo Otero

    It won’t be a fix till it get released globally. By now it’s the only Lollipop software for Hong Kong and one German operator. It doesn’t exist for the rest of the world and as you can see Sony keeps certificating 23.1 softwares for Z3.

  • Sadman Khan

    What about the headphone profiles? Have those problems been fixed?

  • Sadman Khan

    Maybe this is a soak test for the new features and the other phones will receive them on 23.1.x

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    if what you said is true, we’ll most likely be expecting this exact same build number 23.2.X, differentiating it with Z2 (23.1.X), this clearly makes sense

  • Eduardo Otero

    I don’t believe it. Well actually it makes no sense only a couple markets has 23.2 and rest of the world keep receiving 23.1. Let’s wait and see what Sony will.

  • bilomar

    I’m missing about 4gb internal storage where did it go?

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    can you post a screenshot?

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    myy phone also showed 11.57GB internal. Do you rememer what figure was showed in KK?

  • mukul verma

    dont worry, its same as in kitkat.

  • Sadman Khan

    Well, let’s see what Sony does.

  • Leo HK

    Still waiting Lollipop for my Z Ultra in HK.

  • Krasimir Argirov

    The second screen showing the space on SD card, not internal storage.

  • Lito

    XPERIANS running LOLLIPOP PLEASE READ.

    there seem to be a bug in sony lollipop that is causing random notification sound: please visit here http://forum.xda-developers.com/z3/help/random-notification-sound-t3096320
    so that sony can acknowledge this problem thus we can help gather intel for them. thanks

  • Philipp Scheller

    Telekom Germany already on 23.2

  • Eduardo Otero

    Those are the couple markets I’m talking about: Customised Hong Kong and Telekom Germany… Wait a minute!! I guess there’s another german operator with 23.2 I’ve got to check again.

  • Philipp Scheller

    !!!

  • Utsav Shah

    Where did that build no come from?

  • David Carballo Vázquez

    I don’t know if only the France Firmware have this problem but when I’m watching videos in YouTube and one notification appears, video volume decreases and does not increase again :/ I did a clean installation on my Z Ultra. I don’t know if is a bug of YouTube, Lollipop or the Firmware.

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    same problem here with malaysia firmware R3C

  • axwell23

    Every Time xperiablog with you

  • Andrew Bott

    ?Just got update also in Australia. But not sure if that is just because I bought from http://www.dwidigitalcameras.com.au, so my be a HK phone.

  • Niels d. G.

    It’s normal, the system reserves a few GB of storage to work in.

  • Shruti Arora

    Xperia Z3 is very affordable and convenient handset by Sony. It has already launched in India and has got many cool reviews. Here is the full specification http://www.mobiblip.com/model/sony-xperia-z3

  • bilomar

    I don’t mean that it’s 12gb instead of 16gb total space. I mean the free space should be more. Don’t tell me it’s system. Total space means the storage I’m able to use.

  • Niels d. G.

    Try an app like Cleaner Master or CCleaner, there might be big leftover files from the Lollipop update installation.

  • bilomar

    Nope, tried many apps like tha. I guess I will do a fresh install in the next update. If you look at the colored bar you see that grey is for free spacE.on the bar it shows the right amount of space wtf?

  • M?rcis Buhholcs

    I also noticed 23.1.A.1.28 update just appeared on PTCRB for Xperia Z3 Compact (D5803)

  • Igor Eisberg

    No, they are still random and the audio is reset on a new track.

  • Igor Eisberg

    I don’t have Z3 myself, got Z1, so I don’t even know where to start looking for that issue…

  • David Hvatov

    What about system equalizer? Does it work again?

  • Carlos W. H. Sun

    Are you actually replying yourself or you are two people with the same name?

  • Hugo Leonardo

    Z3 getting its second update and I’m still waiting my Z1 update here in Brazil =/

  • Svnjay

    Factory reset.

  • Aaron Griggs

    I have a xperia Z3 and still don’t have lollipop. I feel your pain

  • bilomar

    It’s Kanye West

  • Naresh Gundu

    Replying myself. :|

  • bilomar

    Wow they better fix the audio problems fast because I listen to a lot of music

  • Dean

    What about the D5833 (z3 compact) customized HK is the only customized varient without the update yet

  • Amit Ginat

    hey, there is someone that did the update 23.2.A.1.62 and can tell me how it feels? i heard that the other lollipop is really slow and the battery life is awful.

    i don’t know if the update is worth it or it will ruin my phone, anyone?

    thanks!

  • imparanoic

    I have 5.0 on my z2, I believe 4.4 should be available on all xperia z, is the op’s xperia z ultra officially from HK ( or grey import), if yes, then probably OTA or at least via computer
