Android Marshmallow officially arrives on the Xperia Z2, Z3 and Z3 Compact (23.5.A.0.570)

by XB on 9th April 2016

in Android, Featured Content, Firmware, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z3 series

Xperia Z3 and Z3 CompactSony Mobile has commenced the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow rollout on the Xperia Z2 and Z3 series. The update is currently live for the Xperia Z2 (D6503 only), Xperia Z3 (D6603 ony) and Xperia Z3 Compact (D5803 only). The new firmware has build number 23.5.A.0.570, which incidentally is the same as the recent beta release.

Sony has only pulled the Marshmallow trigger on those variants that are part of the beta programme, perhaps in an effort to start getting the update to the public in a timely fashion. We would expect other variants to see the update shortly after. The new update includes the Camera 2.0.0 user interface and February Android security patch level – some screenshots can be seen here. Please let us know your impressions below, once you’ve had the chance to update.

    What about Z3 Tablet ?

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Well most permium phones from Sony usually gets 3 major android versions nowadays, pretty impressive for not being a part of the Nexus program :)

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Well they have kept saying for now only theese selected phones are confirmed to get android Marshmallow, more might follow. Just read the post on the blog i think it was there i read about it. But i think the z1 saw it last update with android 5.1.1 though :p

  • Alain Leed

    depends on your country ^^ same as the older updates

  • Alain Leed

    I hope too

  • Vasilis K.

    Give to Z1 series too mo-fos!!!!!

  • Alvin

  • Zbaeia

    Other Sony devices that are confirmed to get Android Marshmallow update are Xperia Z3 Tablet, Xperia Z2 Tablet, Xperia M5, Xperia C5 Ultra, Xperia M4 Aqua and Xperia C4.

  • Alain Leed

    Yes but it could arrive soon… The website page isn’t right for Z2, Z3 and Z3C right now so… (and Marshmallow Developper Version was available for Z1)

  • Tomislav Mati?

    Is there Stamina on Android 6.0.1 for those phones?

  • Alvin

    no, but it’s rumored to come back though.

  • Alain Leed

    I dont’ think so… :p

  • Alvin

    What does Indonesia (3) means?

  • Alain Leed

    It meens 3 differents for 3 operators :)

  • Alain Leed

  • Alvin

  • Alain Leed

    no one D6653 has started to receive update yet

  • Boki Tadic (Legia)

    “Sony has only pulled the Marshmallow trigger on those variants that are part of the beta programme”
    REALLY? , ARE YOU F…… Me cmonnn

  • Dodo

    My next phone will definitely not be Sony. There is no reason why My Z1 cannot run Marshmallow. Sony abandoned us Z1 owners.

  • Lucian

    I don’t see any phone from 2013 (except Nexus) getting Marshmallow so your only option would be Nexus if you want updates for 3 year old phone.

  • Will Komba

    not all the variants aaaaaahhhhhhhh

  • Alvin

    yes, it’s been there since two years ago, but it’s great that you finally found it out :)

    the focus xperia x is much more precise and powerful btw.

  • DarkMaster

    ahahahha goodbye you won’t be missed !


    OEM’s are obligated to update their devices for 18 months.
    how old is your Z1 ?

    did Samsung S5(direct rival of Z2 and Z3 ) got marshmallow or it’s still stuck on lollipop 5.0 ?


  • Primož Rojko

    I was just playing with settings and there it was. It’s probably what to expect from Xperia X line up

It would be nice to have Marshmallow on my tablet before the next new release is out, it’ll only be a year behind the…. I see now why people buy iPad’s or Nexus devices. I had a Nexus 5 and was the most up to date Android device out there.

  • Wolf0491

  • kansas Boy

    Even though this will most likely be the last major version update, I do not think this will be the last update. I think we will get an update along with the Z5/z4 series that brings the new ui from the Xperia X series as well as stamina mode (at least USM). Based on how the marshmallow release has some code that is Z5 specific but is just disabled like tells me that Sony is using a unified base and that whatever further mm updates the Z5 series receives we will also receive.

  • Basheer Hadi

    Anyone got from UAE?

  • Alvin

    Does the statusbar becomes black and not transparent anymore?

    How is the marshmallow?

    Xperia Z3 (D6603 ony).
    where Xperia Z3 Dual (D6633 )??????????

  • jumbo3220

    yes it does. mostly when navigating inside stock android elements it turns black. but for apps it turns the related color (red for YouTube , etc.) so far so good. no issues. camera quality is same for me, but Camera 2.0 is there, double tap to off screen is there. but i miss the old app drawer. you no longer can swipe from left to get app draw options. updated diagnostics app is there too

    I suppose the new camera app with its exposure control in auto is something to look forward to but in reality I haven’t really noticed much of a difference since lollipop. TBH apart from the manufacturers software overlays I just can’t tell much of a difference. Been using marshmallow on s7 edge for a month now and just see no real differences.

  • Brick

    I’ve had this for a while in the beta program. Honestly I just wish I could go back to lollipop, it was objectively a superior os. Missing Stamina (and believe me battery life is MUCH worse than before) and removed dualshock 3 support, plus the best innovation from M, merged system and SD storage, MISSING, really makes me totally disappointed. The fact that they needed 1000 testers to basically fix a grand total of 3 bugs from the pervious build just makes me even more disappointed. Not sure if I will buy another Android after this, I’ll probably go windows or more likely apple. Android really isn’t worth it, even flagship phones such as the z3 receive lackluster updates with missing features. I don’t recall any iphone or Windows phone getting removed features after an update.

As soon as I click on “more information”, the Sony webpage shows up and tells me that “5.1.1” is still the latest version. Maybe everyone country has a different release date, so that the update servers don’t crash, I don’t know.

    This is the first time I am really disappointed with Sony, I have been a loyal customer, it is the only brand of phones I use, I even recommend it to others, but this time has been simply too much! I just flashed this ftf (D6603) and after testing I have noticed that the camera algorithms are the same as Lollipop! how is this possible? If they were using new algorithms on the beta version? The camera on the beta rom was reaaaaally good, but now this one does not even allow us to use HDR on 20mp (Manual mode) on the camera and that was possible on the beta version. How can Sony just delete some amazing changes between beta versions and stable releases? Now I understand why Sony loses so many customers. :(

    Is Z2 D6502 not eligible for the marshmallow update? The post says only D6503 of z2 is getting it. What about D6502 which is sold in India? Would be ridiculous if thats the case

  • Matt

    is a staged release, not worldwide

    prepare for update in coming days. sei geduld freunde

  • hansip

    Nah i don’t think Marshmallow will be worth the update for Z Ultra. in my experience from first firmware to the latest, battery life is still about the same so no worries. The Android N though, that’s a whole different story. I think i wil unlock mine and go with CM14 when it comes out.

  • hansip

    i doubt Sony will bring X UI to the Z family, because the color paradigm is different nowadays. the Z family is mainly white/black overall, where as X series is colorful throughout. But yes, transparent clock would be awesome to have in Z series though.

    MM =15360,19200,23040,26880,57238,66560

    Meaning that MinFree settings are set just too aggressive in Beta, without any obvious reason. So I think, that all of you, who think that you suffer from your apps being killed too often, can safely use the MinFree from Lollipop and I believe that the issue will be gone.

    Don’t forget that minfree raw values above are in pages, one page equals 4kb. So for amount in MB just multiply by 4 and divide by 1024.?

    I use Ultra Stamina mode a lot even when I am not low on battery, so I would welcome its return.

    The way I use my phone is to have it on Ultra as a “work” mode for the office, and use the regular full power “play” mode when I am out and about, listening to music, web browsing, checking my apps etc.

    Good to hear that it won’t be long until it is coming back, I will look out for it. Sony phones have a good build quality, it’s a shame they do not have a high market share unlike their competitors.

    You are not? 7 months to release a update? And worst.. 7 months to launch the same build as a previous beta? Sony have an almost stock rom,why they need 7 months? To make us buy newer things. I can´t understand the defenders of Sony updates,just because no other company updates for 3 years Sony can´t?

    You are right for the late updates but definitly not for the ” 3 years ” thing.
    Just check the original Z, I don’t any other company updated a phone that old.

  • Chuck

    Don’t know what you mean by the gap near battery icon, but the “bold hour thin minute” clock face is definitely not back on the lock screen. Other things you should know: Ultra Stamina Mode is gone, DUALSHOCK 3 controller connectivity is gone, home screen and recent apps screen can no longer rotate to landscape, your music might get all messed up in the Music app, and if you have any apps stored on the SD card, you should put them back on internal storage or they will crash on Marshmallow and you’ll have to reinstall them.

  • Tardisblue

    Thank you so much for your reply.
    It’s disappointing that after all the wait, there are still so many problems. What is the main reason to update to marshmallow?

    by the gap i mean this one: it has been bugging me since lollipop update.

  • You can change the lockscreen clock lol.
    Dont think you can do much about the gap though.

    Marshmallow brings a bunch of new features:

  • Carburano

    They changed minfree settings with aggressive values. That’s really weird

  • Chamila T

    any word about Z3 Dual…..????

  • Brick

    They get a stripped down update but they don’t lose features that were there before after an update. With Android M on the Z3 we lost Stamina (and thus a ton of battery life), Camera burst shot and Dualshock 3. And I used all 3 of these features. And judging from what certain nerds on the beta program page are saying, there are certain values changed on how the phone frees ram, long story short, apps reload a lot more and multitasking is much worse than before, ram is not used optimally and the phone kills apps even when there’s a lot of free ram and apps could easily be “frozen” in ram so you can multitask faster without your apps reloading. Modifying these values with the lollipop values makes multitasking good again, but you need root and other stuff to change those values.

    Bottom line, this update is shit, I’ve used it for like two weeks before Sony decided that even though 570 is literally a beta firmware it was good enough to roll out even though testing was incomplete and there were many bugs and missing features still in.

  • Alain Leed

  • Brick

    I had this version for a while on the beta program (yes, this is beta firmware that somehow Sony decided was good enough to release even if it’s full of bugs, has terrible multitasking and poor battery life), and I definitely didn’t cum all over my desk, if anything I’m pissed off because Lollipop was better and this firmware isn’t as good as Lollipop. It’s also missing features, Dualshock 3 support has been removed, and also camera burst shot is no longer possible.

    1. It dosen’t, it prevents the ringtone bug.
    2. It’s still both bold letter and it’s default already since Z5 announced, and you can take a look the Xperia X lock screen, the bold of the letter is same.

  • Benjamin Levy

    Talk to Verizon.

  • Khillo81

    – Lost Stamina, gained Doze. I know they’re not exactly the same (Doze cannot be manually controlled) but since Doze is baked into the system, adding Stamina might cause clashes and be redundant.

    – Burst shot doesn’t come by default, but you can still download it from the Play Store

    – Removing support for Dualshock 3 controllers is old news: This is the same strategy followed by many companies to force you to upgrade to the latest hardware. It’s the sad truth of our consumption-oriented world.

  • Ailan Hidaz

    Do you have proof of that?
    People have been asking for Raw support since before Lollipop and Sony haven’t obliged. What makes you say they suddenly will allow Raw shooting on their phones?

  • Brick

    Doze is not as good, as it doesn’t optimize battery while phone is used, i.e. by reducing CPU clock, like Stamina could do, and also there’s no more ultra Stamina for emergencies.

    I can’t find any burst shot on the play store, before you could hold the camera button to take pics in succession.

    And about the dualshock 3, they shouldn’t have removed it period.

    M is not as good as lollipop, especially version 570 which is bugged and also had terrible multitasking.

  • HAWX

    Yea. That’s what Sony will say soon.

  • Ahmed Shaaban

    I had updated my z2 with the USA ftf file
    1. The space betwwen battery and network signal still exist.
    2. I can’t move app to SD card.
    3. The dailer design in calling is very ugly
    4. The status bar black not change with setting and calling
    5. Nfc not work properly
    6. Launcher not support 3Rd party icon pack it only support Sony icon pack

    Fast performance
    Good battery life
    Good launcher

  • Ali Samy


  • Alvouu

    Downloaded on Z2, cant change the camera to 20.7 mp, only 8 mp. Does anybody have the same problem?

  • Wilcinjsh

    Yeah, looks like so. I’m afraid to flash the Ukraine generic FTF. The idea of something not working correctly makes me feel bad. xD

  • Carl mit Zeh

    Thanks Andrius! And those versions (Ukraine, Latin America etc.) work fine with phones from western Europe, including language support?

    Requesting for D6653…. Pls!!

  • Andrius Mikalauskas

    I hope so, if anything not ok you can always revert to lolipop or kk using same steps different soft versions ;) these versions are officcial and safe, it’s not rooting your device etc, this method is safe and won’t void your warranty I suppose.

    the following is from the sony xperia z2 user guide:

    “You can force your device to restart or shut down in situations where it stops responding or won’t restart normally. No settings or personal data get deleted during a forced restart.
    If a forced restart procedure doesn’t succeed, you should try the 2-minute restart procedure.

    Now this is a serious issue, I updated my Z2 (D6502) to Marshmallow. After the Update Many Apps are not working with Mobile Data while they work fine when Phone is connected to Wifi. I have tried Software Repair using Xperia Companion also tried Flashing the Firmware using Flashtool. I generally use Vodafone 3G Mobile Data, I have tried changing the SIM to Airtel, i have also tried checking the Internet Settings …Nothing Helped.

    After the First Boot Even Playstore Keeps telling that “Cannot connect to google servers Try Later” as soon as you coonect to Wifi Playstore and other apps works fine.

    Device: Z2 (D6502)
    Firmware: 23.5.A.0.575
    SIM Operator: Vodafone / Airtel
    List of Apps Not working with Mobile Data:
    *Chrome Browser
    *Dolphin Browser
    *State Bank Anywhere
    *My Vodafone
