Xperia Z3 SeriesSony Mobile has released the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop firmware update for the Xperia Z2 and Z3 series in Canada. The update comes in the form of build number 23.4.A.0.570, moving the Xperia devices to Android 5.1.1 from 5.0.2 Lollipop. You can check below to see which firmware updates are available for which Canadian carrier.

The update has also landed on the Xperia Z2 and Z3 Tablet series for carriers in Japan and Taiwan.

If you’ve updated, let us know how you are getting on with the update in the comments below.

    To all those people who are highly excited about 5.1 update, please be noted that this update messes up almost everything. Especially battery performance. I got updated to 5.1 on my Z3(D6653) and currently suffering. You can take a look at Sony forum, all those complaints but not even single reply from Sony.

    Issues I found are:

    *Poor battery performance, no more two day battery.

    *Broken Adaptive brightness

    *Excessive heating.

    *Very low in Call Volume.

    Please take a look at this before updating.

  • Alexx

    Sony that damned icons

  • Haris Siddiqui

    interesting. my battery life actually improved after the 5.1 update on my z3. my only issue with it is that there is no “search” function anymore in the all app tray. i don’t know why they removed that. it was so useful.

  • FerN

    When For M2 5.1.1 :( I am Waiting this long :( Only Z3 and Z2 :(

  • vigneshprince

    yeah some problem with the brightness settings!

  • SONY only

    When for Z Ultra ???

  • Igor Eisberg

    Try removing “/system/app/SemcMetadataCleanup/”. This app (“Download
    music info”) is very CPU intensive (about 20% usage for this app only)
    even if you don’t open it (it’s a background service). It drains battery
    and causes the phone to heat up.

  • SONY only

    when will lollipop 5.1 release for Z Ultra ?

  • jxPerience

    i’m starting to hate my xperia z2 now, lollipop UI is very ugly and the unalined placement of status bar icons are really annoying. Please sony do something about it. I fucking hate it

  • jxPerience

  • Tochi Nwodu

  • Zeljko Kovacevic

    5.1.1 for mid range maybe in this milenium?

  • Abhi

    Looks like the T-Mobile USA version might be among the last again. Well still better than Verizon’s Z3v I guess which is still on KitKat lol.

  • Winter Soldier

    people can’t hear me with my headset only on skype calling. how to fix this. Issue came after updated to 5.1.1

  • SM

  • Officina Wazo

  • Zoran

    Only t-mobile UK recieved 5.1.1. Rest of the world is stuck with 5.0.2.

  • Ayad Fahos

    Lolipop killing the mobile need to fix sound battery heatting and many bug

  • Vahid Sanati

  • Ayad Fahos

  • Inzanamul Hoque

    Which version did you update to?. 546 or. 570?

  • Abhi

    Unfortunately the USA version is D6616 meaning as its a very specific carrier model it will be last.

  • Eduardo Otero

    You will longer. For M2 it won’t land before October and maybe later…

  • Eduardo Otero

    After October…

  • Jaissal S

    Hopefully we will get the 5.1.1 update for Z1 series sometime soon.

  • ??????????????????????????????????????

    for work details
    find out here



  • Abhi

    The Z3 is brighter than my mother’s iPhone 6 (if both set to max brightness) but the adaptive brightness is a bit too conservative. On a sunny day the iPhone 6 looks much brighter unless I set my Z3’s adaptive brightness off.

  • SM

    confirmed? source?

  • Timel

    does that apply only for rooted phones?

  • Igor Eisberg

    Yes it does, but I think you can also Disable the app if you’re unrooted.

  • DieMusik

    Full implementation of camera2 api by any chance?


    u will find this funny but most most annoying thing in lollipop is notification bar and recent app design in which they included google chrome tabs too
    imagine u have opened more that 20 tabs in chrome and all those shows in recent app

  • RiAz

    After update 5.1.1 my Sony Xperia Z3 Dual. Now Ussd code note running, battery run out very quickly. All of Z3 Dual user facing this problem. But Sony nothing to do.

  • rob damiani
