    I got a Z4 Tablet the other week :P Loving it so far. I wish I could update it now with this update without using a computer :-/ I got to wait then until my network/operator does it which is stupid really. Oh well.

    Z3+ needs the new camera update ‘with’ the brightness & color sliders.

    Hey I wanted to get Z4 tablet for awhile now can I ask you couple of things.

    Do you own xperia phone? If yes can you try experia link??

  • Got that in Greece today.
    Hope it improves the lag the device has when I switch to another account and go back to first (admin) account – even if the second account is not running anything.

    i hope this fixes my slow wifi issues and my input lag from the ds4 on remote play

    I own the XZ4T and the XZ5P, they connected perfectly. Is there something you wanted to know specifically?

    what i wanted to know are:

    -how is battery when you connect the feature?
    -i understand that xperia link sends notification to the tablet , and you can answer text messages from the tablet, how about whatsapp ? or line or any other 3 rd party messaging ? only notification ?
    – can i mirror my phone screen while the phone is off in my pocket?

    so basically i want a total control of my phone while using the tablet , can i do that? :)

    thanks for the answer

    Xperia Link does not support Screen Mirroring, but you can go to Settings, More, Wireless & networks, Xperia Connectivity / Device connection (depending on what device you are using), Screen mirroring to mirror. I never use my tablet for Xperia Link for the following reason(s)

    – Everything on my XZ5P is on my XZ4T
    – My XZ4T has WiFi / LTE so I do not need my XZ5P for it’s mobile data
    – When I did use Xperia Link it was only for a short period of time so I have no data on battery life
    – I do not think XL supports 3rd party apps
    – With Xperia Connectivity / Screen morroring you can do it with the phone in your pocket
    – I use BKB50, I really do not know about other keyboards

    *** For total control use Xperia Conectivity / Screen mirroring

    Thank you for the hindsight ;)

    I’ll I need is now find out whether the bloat on xz4t os manageable. Since I can’t root it yet. Unlike my z3 @_@

    Where are you in the world? Europe? Because the boatyard differ according to region and country. I’m in Germany btw

  • Rene Pedroso

    I’m from USA (New York City). I purchase my Sony Mobile devices unlocked

  • Matt

    okay then :) i better off to research all the bloatwares that are present on the tablet.

    :( i hate the fact that we cannot root the thing without losing bootloader lock

  • I didn’t want to see this.
    Unfortunately this update probably means that MM for us is at least 2-3 months away. :(

    Updated today. Can’t really notice any difference – recent apps button still takes about 2 seconds to respond which is my biggest complaint with the tablet. Hopefully fixed with marshmallow….

  • Freepat 75014

    I got it today in France. Strange to remain on 5.0.2 on fresh Z4 Tablet, when old Xperia Z1 is already at 5.1.1…. Why ?
