6-2-notificationsVerizon has confirmed on its support pages that both the Sony Xperia Z3v and Xperia Z2 Tablet will shortly be receiving the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop firmware update. Whilst the Xperia Z2 Tablet is currently running Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, the Xperia Z3v is still on Android 4.4.4 KitKat – although, the handset did update to Android 5.0.2 unofficially through leaked firmware.

The new update will move the Xperia Z3v from build number 23.0.E.1.44 to version 23.4.B.0.319, with the Xperia Z2 Tablet moving to the same build number from version 23.1.D.0.508. Whilst Verizon’s support pages have been updated to confirm the new firmware, the update has not started to roll. We will follow up, once it has been released.

Thanks GigaSPX and WilliamTell13!

    NO WAY. I NEVER THOUGHT THIS DAY WAS COMING! There is hope yet!

  • Brian De Guzman

    Just a random question, does Z3 have LDAC? I can’t seem to find a reliable source when Googling.

  • WilliamTell13

    A bunch of users on the XDA forums have started receiving the update. I’m sure they will be posting screenshots/videos within minutes/hours.

  • thefaze

    Mine is updating right now as I type!!! OH HAPPY DAYS!!!!

  • YuuriAyano

    Better late than never I guess.

  • Utsav Shah

    No. It has DSEE HX.

  • DSEE HX is software thing, in a very basic sense it’s like an upscaler, it “upscales” MP3 audio into High-res Audio, LDAC on the other hand is only available on Z3+ and Z5 Series and is what allows you to listen to High-res audio through bluetooth wireless headsets.

  • thefaze

    Maybe next year at this rate, lol.

  • thefaze

    UPDATED!! YAY!! It took two separate updates, and the better part of an hour, but it’s finally done!

  • Joe Black

    Now I feel bad for bitching about late 6.0.

  • Little Man

    How’s the experience so far?

  • Frankie

    I’m unable to send/receive text messages. Are you having the same issue?

  • thefaze

    It’s good, just trying to get used to the way some of the settings have changed. It looks good from a surface standpoint. I like seeing the notifications on the lock screen. I don’t like swiping the lock screen to get to my unlock pattern screen. I don’t like how to change between sound/vibrate/silent modes using the volume rocker, instead of the power button. Priority interruptions? Something to get used to, I guess. I was hoping to be able to change the grid size, but no luck there. So on and so forth…

  • thefaze

    I just checked, and yes, I can’t send texts. I’ll try restarting the phone.

  • Frankie

    Won’t work. I’ve been looking at a fix for this for the past hour and it seems the only option is a factory reset

  • thefaze

    Yeah, didn’t work.

  • Frankie

    Good luck. Seems to have bricked my texting abilities

  • Kabuto Kouji

    upload some pics please!

  • Kabuto Kouji

    pics pics!

  • alex

    ya me too

  • theskig

    I just want to remember your first words:
    “Mine is updating right now as I type!!! OH HAPPY DAYS!!!!”

    I have to paste it to everyone complaining for late updates :)

    Sorry for the problems you have with this update ;)

  • theskig

    Maybe it’s better to add a warning note about the SMS issue :)

  • thefaze

    Here’s one shot.

  • Frankie

    In your apps list, hit Setup Wizard, that might bypass needing to do a factory reset.

  • Frankie

    In your apps list, try doing Setup Wizard

  • thefaze

    Home screen.

  • theskig

    You replied the wrong guy :)

  • thefaze

    Has anything worked?

  • theskig

    Thanks for sharing.
    That “4G” icon is really huge.

  • Kabuto Kouji

    what about the vertical clock is it all bold or the minutes are thin again?

  • Kabuto Kouji

    bro what about lock screen please uploade it

  • Kabuto Kouji

    what themes are available bro? can upload a pic please?

  • thefaze

    Lock screen. Nothing major.

  • thefaze

    I cleared the data from Setup Wizard, but that didn’t work. Is there something else I was supposed to do…?

  • thefaze

    About phone screenshot.

  • Svnjay

    ITT: People who actually bought this phone :O

  • Kabuto Kouji

    thanks !!!

  • Kabuto Kouji

    bro its not 6.0

  • thefaze

    Who said it’s 6.0? Us z3v owners are happy enough to go from KitKat to Lollipop, lol. Texting issues notwithstanding…

  • Kabuto Kouji

    got it

  • Utsav Shah

    Damn dude. I know all that. I was just replying to the guy that the z3 only has DSEE HX.

  • Good luck with the update folks. Since I’ve done it I cannot text on any other app than the Verizon Messages+ app, which is a god awful app. Also tons of other problems reported with backup and syncing from other users.

  • Uzair Syed

    Same here. Seems to be a widespread issue actually.

  • sebastianer

    This is terrible. But its verizon btw….
