    Hopefully the clear all button will come to Z1 on its next update.

  • Antonis Kalaitzakis

    I guess it’s a “performance improvements” update..

  • Ravi

    Thank you Sony, This is what we are waiting for and I think there is something for load apps fast with high performance.

  • Niek van Rijswijk

    Performance seems to be improved. No more delay between pressing the recents button and selecting a app. Just the animations now. Good job Sony.

  • Abdullah Robben

    My brother’s xperia Z2 power button stopped working(partially) after updating to android 5
    Does anyone else have this problem? could it be a software bug?

  • wim den boer

    De phone is on Dutch

  • jack

    in the lock screen, the hotspot quick on/off does not show up in the pull down panel. only available if screen is unlocked. anyone?

  • roeshak

    So many lollipop updates. That makes it 4 5.0.2 builds now. Sony have just taken their time with this. It’s may and we’re still seeing 5.0.2 builds rolling out. I’m sure this isn’t the last either!

  • Kiwison

    Which theme is that?

  • Vasilis K.

    Give it to Z1 Compact!!!!

  • Joseph Pamplona

    Can confirm. Not a big deal for me though.

  • mohamed

    Anyone can tell me what is the difference between Nordic room and middle east or two other difference country

  • bilomar

    I’m still on .690 z3 and when I open apps it shows the animation first and then them app shows up. That’s annoying. Hope Germany gets this update real soon.

  • bilomar

    On any background or just Xperia live wallpaper?

  • Ritwij

    I am on 726 and sparkles work for me when I’m using the Xperia live wallpaper (it also did on 690). Other than that, sparkles don’t work for any other wallpaper

  • bilomar

    That’s for security, so no one can turn on your Hotspot and use your data when you leave your phone somewhere.

  • bilomar

    Do software repair with pc companion.

  • bilomar

    I loved that effect on kitkat, I was just playing around with it when I was bored :D

  • jack

    this sucks. As I share hotspot often to my friends. hostspot has wifi passcode, no security issue and I turn it off when not needed.

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    absoluly none in terms of phone performance,

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    my friend, the security issue is not in a per user basis. Since connecting to hotspot brings floating ip address, it is more difficult for FBI and worldwide law enforcement agencies to locate illegal activities

  • Manuka Maduranga

    Anyone getting the update in Baltic region?

  • S.A.E.E.D

    Why the home button is round shaped in the second picture ?!

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    it is a theme

  • batuhan

    What about the camera? Does it support manual controls now? (focus or maybe raw)

    DAMN YOU SONY!!! They could at least release a new material design live wallpaper and the normal wallpapers in their roms

  • mohamed imran

    when will be the new upadte in middle east??

  • Kabuto Kouji

    dude how did u got that bar at the bottom with the automatic brigthness, sound auto rotate etc.. is that an app? i dont have it its pretty cool!!

  • Joseph Pamplona

    It’s an app called Power Toggles. It’s basically extra toggles on the notifications but one of the side effects was that it would also show up in the lock screen. I’ve got mine set up right now to have auto brightness, volume controls, screen wake lock, immersive mode and auto rotate. I highly recommend the app dude it’s great!

  • Kabuto Kouji

    thanks for the replay dude, im testing it its pretty cool, i just cant manage to get it at the bottom. In your pic looks like a complement of the drag down menu dude, how did you managed to put it that way?

  • Joseph Pamplona

    Try this maybe? It’s what i have

  • Kabuto Kouji

    got it!! just right dude thanks so much!!!!!
