  • Ça?atay

    Ookaaay. This is cool. I hope sony roll it fast this fw for all.

  • Shaktimaan

    Skipping the first one then :p….. On my z2

  • haxona

    The pace on updates has been crazy good ever since Z2 got released. Keep it going Sony!

  • Sadman Khan

    Sweet

  • Sweggity

    can anybody confirm does this firmwares support Sony MXTP bootloader security?

  • Woohoo, here we gooo

  • Shravan SP

    It makes me wonder why people call the first gen Z devices ZR/Z/ZL as the ‘original’ Z devices!? :/
    As if others are fake…

  • Brayan Ramírez

    Because they were the first xperia z devices that`s why

  • Leo M

    I hope tomorrow it rolls no Z2

  • nick

    This. 570 must be for hong kong or some countries like it was with 5.0.2 we had 28 and they had 62

  • Nuno

    Did anyone update the Z3 to the 5.1 lollipop?? Is there a setting to enable VoLTE on the unlocked devices ???

  • Alvin

    why don’t they just release the one that is stable other than making new updates. It makes me crazy, it makes me a bit happy, and it also makes me overexcited the whole time. and it also takes my time too for updating.

    sony is going mad at updates these days. BEAT THOSE ASSES, SONY!

  • WilliamTell13

    The previous one was stable. They probably just saw the bugs that people were reporting in the XDA forums and such and decided to fix some of them. Or they themselves found minor bugs after they released the initial release.

  • Antonis Kalaitzakis

    What bugs?

  • Alvin

    i don’t have any bugs either. by stable, i mean the proper/the final ones, so we don’t have to update some more.

    but i’m happy that they did this now, because it means they care a lot for our devices’ softwares, and they might noticed something we didn’t so they fixed it quickly without/before causing rage

  • Alvin

    i think he means in 5.0.2

  • Alvin

    because new ones will get better time managements in support

  • Alvin

    yup, not country, carrier, or phone model specific..

  • WilliamTell13

    People were saying stuff about icons being misaligned in the status bar and something to do with microphone profiles. I’m sure there’s a couple other “bugs” they mentioned.

  • Antonis Kalaitzakis

    Maybe it’s a carrier update

  • David McCormack

    Have 5.1.1 on my z3. Couple of bugs to note include: brightness when set to adaptive spikes to high for a second or two before it adapts. LinkedIn Calendar not signing in. There’s no charge estimate on lock screen . Also the sound is still the same and the camera really has not improved.

  • Leo M

    I have checked link provided by sony in software updates menu in settings, and it tells that 5.1 already available on z2…

  • Alvin

    share with us the screenshots

  • Sadman Khan

    Is anyone having a problem with microphone not working on skype or am i the only one?

  • Sadman Khan

    That’s in the Nordic region. Has always been the case for that region since 5.0.2

  • Sadman Khan

    My mic doesn’t work on skype. How about you?

  • The charge estimate on the lock screen only appears after charging for a while to make a good estimate based on current charging time – are you sure it doesn’t appear after a while?

  • Sadman Khan

    Original does not necessarily mean the opposite of fake.
    Origin= source
    Here original means the “first devices”

  • Skipper

    Not true, on superior auto is much better.

  • Dottsie87

    Hmm maybe I need to do more testing on that.

  • Dottsie87

    Yeah I left it in to charge for about 50% of the battery and checked periodically to see if it came up . I’ve restarted the phone myself as I always do after updates. Perhaps I’ll wait until I need to charge again and see if this time it appears. Is anyone else having the adaptive brightness problem?

  • Lena

    LinkedIn made me quit Sony calender.

  • Alain Leed

    what about manual camera mode? has it been removed?

  • Dottsie87

    Still there. Actually took some more pictures and can notice better quality than before. Think the picture I was comparing the new ones to was a particularly good one.

  • Alain Leed
  • Peter

    Samething here cannot connect Linkedin to Calendar

  • Alvin

    Oh yeah it is.. Look at the status bar, there’s a huge gap between battery icon and signal icon

  • Alvin

    alright, i thought you got the update :D

  • Alvin

    didn’t try it yet, maybe later, wait until I update this post.. :)

  • Sadman Khan

    Thanks man :D

  • betatesterz

    23.4.A.0.570
    ^

    What I’ve noticed so far is that the, the A.0 firmware versions tends to have the most bugs. It’s not until they eventually release an A.1 version where it is relatively stable.

    So Imma gonna wait till 23.4.A.1.xxx before updating.

  • Brick

    Yes, there’s indeed a bug with the brightness after you turn on the screen, very minor but noticeable.

  • Olger Shaqiraj

    Did they fix low light performance in manual mode?

  • JacquelynDAsbury
  • vov

    What about dual sim Z3?

  • Brick

    Sony announced that the Z3 dual will be downgraded to kitkat.

  • Alvin

    Like there is any more updates with 23.4.a.1.xxx build? How do you know? Hahaha just kidding

  • Daniel Craig

    I’m an agent and I had sex with your mother last night, she told me that you’re lying.

  • Alvin

    it works for me:)

  • Sadman Khan

    Using earphones too? Why am I the unlucky one? :'(

  • Alvin

    didn’t try using earphones yet. did that just happened with skype or with others too? try line or else

  • Sadman Khan

    If i disconnect earphones, it works. I tried with two different earphones and same problem. I can hear them but they can’t hear me :/ Viber works okay until i turn on video and sometimes the mic causes issues but works most of the time. Sadly on skype neither voice call nor video call works using earphones :(

  • Alvin

    maybe it’s the skype’s problem because me and my friend always skype, and we never skype starting like more than a week ago, but on my laptop. but i also have skype in my phone, and my friend sometimes also got her earphone’s microphone not working on skype.

  • Sadman Khan

    I would be really grateful if you could just try out the echo test using earphones. See if you can hear what you say

  • Ritwij

    Is your name related to Xperia SP? Because that wouldn’t make any sense for you to be on a news related to “updates” :D

    /S

  • Dany MzQ

    I received update today for my Z3, but for Z1 when ???

  • Arvid

    But thats not new for me. I have not updated to latest but sometimes when you wake up the phone it takes about a second for the screen to really light up to max.

    Edit: On my z3

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    It’s not rolling for Z2

  • Mohamed Eltantawi

    Do you know other regions where it is confirmed not to have this bug? Thanks.

  • Sadman Khan

    Try any other than Nordic or Baltic. Try the middle east one then

  • Antonis Kalaitzakis

    I read “now” and not “not” and my heart skipped a beat :(

  • Nuno

    Where do you live still didn’t receive any update for my Z2,Z3. I live in the United States

  • Zoran

    Same on my Z2 since I updated it to 5.0.2.

  • Dany MzQ

    I live in Romania, UE.

  • Tim

  • Dhanushka Ruwan Dissanayake

    Wifi and Bluetooth Setting on Notification

    DISADVANTAGE
    NO SUCH DISADVANTAGE AFTER UPGRADE….

  • aquawille

    Do not work the microphone on Z3 after update :(

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    Ok, now roll that sh*t

  • Ahmed Fathi

    There are 2 of my friends get the update in the same city for the same model Z2 D6502, and I still didn’t get it ..
    is there any way to push this update?

  • z3user

    Hopefully they won’t forget th d6633..

  • Minam Tungekar

    My mic too is’nt working on Skype app.. Tried Everything! uninstall reinstall restart the cell nothing works. Though it works completely fine on other apps

  • Sadman Khan

    Still doesn’t work for me

  • DER

    Anything on the Verizon Variant? Z3v? I feel like an abandoned puppy in the forest all alone with outdated tech…………

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    Come on, where is it? It’s been 15 days, and still not rolling!

  • D J Fran Moreno

    I’m also having the same Issue and realize that the real problem relies on Google app. If you disable the “OK Google” recognition on any screen the mic will work as it is..
