    I haven’t got it yet. (I’m in the UK) :/

  • razorg

    Tried both OTA and PC Companion ways by the way…

  • ChilliPSco

    Going to look at firmware for journalists on Flashtool. (Virgin Mobile has it in the UK so far according to XperiFirm).

  • ChilliPSco

    This is all that’s showing on XperiFirm/Flashtool

  • Tim Rox Westerholm

    Nuthin in Sweden via OTA yet…

  • Alvin

    Be patient… You’ll get it in days or couple of hours..:)

  • razorg

    Checked with Xperifirm tool just now, only Virgin Mobile released this update in the UK, yes you’re right, we should get it any minute :) (Z5 Compact) :)

  • Tim Rox Westerholm

    Oh, i fotot to Tell you that I’m using the Z5 Premium :D

  • Now you need to wait a few months for your provider to approve it and get it back to sony. Oh you thought you’re buying unlocked?! Hehe, you poor bastard, there is no such thing when buying shitdroid! :D

  • Gabriel

    Nothing in Sweden. However, I found something interesting about my device. I got it yesterday, Z5 Premium, and the SI-number doesn’t match any of the numbers in Xperifirm. Mine is 1298-8180, and the closest is 1298-2771 which is for commercial and journalists. What kind of unit have I got here?

  • Wilhelm-Bernhard Trometer

    The update is now availible in Norway i checked on pc companion so it should be also availible in sweden rigth now so if you have the z5 then you can update it now good luck

  • Mohd naeem

    I’m waiting for it JORDAN

  • YuuriAyano

    Downloading it right now. Doesn’t have a changelog though :/

  • Tobias Hedlund

    It´s easy to check if it´s avalible. Just go into settings – about phone – diagnostics. If the update is avalible it will say so there.

  • Gambi

    Got it in France too, no changelog

    Update for the E5823 is live in Australia. Unsure if Telstra has their
    version out, as I am using the Generic Aus Firmware… will post back
    once it’s updated

  • NeoBeum

    It’ll take about 15 minutes to install and the system will update itself when it restarts… I’m still watching it go

  • NeoBeum

    It’s very vague…. it’s just ‘optimisations’….
    I might go look if they have the build on Github

  • Phazonclash

    Installed yesterday on my unlocked Z5 using Flashtool (Got it via XperiFirm, I picked the “Virgin UK” firmware variant).

    So far, nothing new or noticeable. The phone doesn’t run or feel any faster, the stock launcher is identical, no new settings, etc. Security fixes maybe, or new modem drivers? Considering the official Marshmallow ROM/Firmware is around the corner and is supposed to be available by the end of December, I guess is would make sense. I doubt Sony will waste time and resources on adding new stuff on a Lollipop ROM that will be obsolete in less than a month

  • Sadman Khan

    So far I’ve noticed no changes except for a tad more smoothness and camera starting up even faster. Z5c on Malaysian firmware. Will test to see if the auto brightness has been fixed

    Notification drawer bug not fixed either (expand a notification and it goes small again straight away). No idea what this was for, hopefully the wifi taking ages to connect is sorted.

  • Sadman Khan

    Doesn’t take ages to disconnect here. And I don’t have the notif bar bug either. It doesn’t happen to everyone or so I’ve read

  • Mohammed Algarny

    I’m in the Middle East and I just got the update. I don’t notice any changes.

  • Dean Weaver

    Not in the UK yet – Z5 premium & unlocked – nothing yet… My fingerprint scanner starts OK but gets worse – I hope this is fixed.

  • Román Rodríguez

    When I try to update via Sony PC Companion it says “Phone software update information is not accessible” what can I do?

  • Jarrod

    I only got the 170 update a couple of days ago. That’s on telstra in Australia. Probably a couple of weeks away from the 200.

  • Timel

    So where is the update for camera?

    I mean the update that will kills every issues of superior auto with is the worst camera auto mode in the smartphone right now. Sony’s Superior Auto is the worst in lowlights, worst in details, worst in colour accuracy! The worst post-processing image the world has ever made.

  • chrisdbarnett

    I’m in the UK and I got it via the PC companion.

  • fried_egg

    EE uk Z5… phone unaware of an update, but plugging it in to pc ompanion it found it straight away… no email from sony’s website which often comes if you have registered the phone with the support pages… funnily enough that has sent me a few regarding a z1 upgrade that “may” be available that pc companion says isnt!

  • fried_egg

    i think the button on my z5 is getting more “clicky” over time

  • fried_egg

    the z3+ is due to skip 5.1.1 and go straight to 6.x : there may still be 5.0.2 bug fixes before hand… but you are not really missing anything “major” as the phones o/s tend to be “optimised” by sony anyway (i know, one persons optimised is not anothers!)

  • SupDex

    What about update for algorithms camera ?

  • Dion

    I wondered were you’ve been

  • Dion

    You’ll go straight to 6.0 I guess

  • Fan

    i got it from yesterday Slovakia Orange

  • 21187

    No update yet for me OTA or via PC – in US on unlocked Italian E5823

  • VitalyK

    Just updated Z5c and the camera does seem to be a bit quicker.

  • Cakefish

    Mine’s 1298-3810.

  • nick sweden

    In what’s new app there is the update

  • nick sweden

    I installed a camera update in what’s up :-) check there

  • Daniel Johanzon

    Fik uppdateringen till z5 compact i torsdags i sverige!
    Got the update to Z5 compact Thursday in Sweden!

  • razorg

    Still no update for generic devices in the UK :(

  • itsjunaid


    any body notice any change in the battery life with this update?

    it would be nice if you can comment what is the average battery time you get from your xperia Z5. …i am getting around 18 hours… 3.5 hrs of screen on time and the rest is stand by time.

    I am trying to figure out if my new device is faulty… looking forward to your comments.

  • Janne

    I’m pretty sure that the update made Z5’s fingerprint scanner more reliable. At least I’m not getting false readings anymore. Has anyone else noticed the same?

  • Actman

    Hello. I just bought Z5C. Phone is awesome, but when I play anything over the speakers (incoming call, music, etc.) the volume is good for about a second, and then it turns very low.
    Anyone experienced this, or knows something about the issue?

  • Shiro

    I haven’t got it yet E6633

  • Guillermo Basurto

    Hi, I´ve try to use the flashtool for my Z5, but it doesn´t work, anyone can help me? where can I download it? I´ve already looked for it at the sony develpment page, but it says it works only till Z3……thanks!!!

  • Arup R. Chowdhury

    Strange, have both the 1020 Nokia and Z5, I find the later’s camera now better in most cases over the 1020 which needs to be constantly adjusted to get its best. Also most shots are blurry due to slow AF compared to Z5.
