    We have some Feedback for Sony :

    1- PS3 Dualshock controller support ( It was removed from Z5 series and in Android MM 6.0 )
    Some people they have only PS3 !

    3- Font Style Support ( Important, Some people they Rooted the phone to change font style )
    Now ( Samsung, LG, HTC, and Huawei ) They support font style & Sony Still !!! Why Sony ?

    3- Emoji’s :
    Google emoji it look very bad and not nice for some people, We hope Sony to add a choice to change it ( Hope to be like WhatsApp or Appel IOS )

    Xperia Blog, Please send this 3 feedback to Sony or Sony Beta Community in G+ ( Google Plus )

    Do you have the concept rom installed? Then you have an app called InTouch (I think) that gives you access to the community.

    Why kernel still is v3.4.0?
    Latest is v310 or v4.0.

  • Arch9

    Then why you request all that kind of useless stuff if you didn’t install it?

  • Dion

    In hope that someone else will request it?

    Aney one Know when Xperia Z2 D6502 get Marshmallow update, Plz reply

  • dimz

    Latest is v4.5 actually, but Sony and the other manufacturers prefer to patch the old kernel to death before they upgrade it, if ever.

    The goal of the Concept Firmware is to be close to AOSP with small additions to keep support for the phone. I assume that Dualshock support will probably not come because it’s part of Sony’s skin. Front Style support is already there – the screen turns on when you open the cover. Sony has said they might not add any extra features for the cover (I’m guessing that is because that’s also part of Sony’s skin. I can say with certainty that emojis will always be Google Noto. There is no functional reason for Sony to change a functional set of emojis to other ones they would have to pay to license and spend development effort adding a switcher.

    Why would any of us know and not say already? Dozens of people ask this every day and if there is news, a blog will post about it. Please use Google to find the information yourself.

    WTF ?

    IF not important for you, It’s important for some people

    So, We dey rooted the phones ?

  • Amimanot

    Seeing as how camera bugfixes is listed there, I’ve got 2 questions:

    Did they fix the bug where the last few seconds of a video recorded has their audio cut off prematurely?
    Did they fix the bug in timeshift burst where only a single picture is saved instead of the whole burst?

    Also related:
    Did they fix the bug in album where previous timeshift bursts made in official Sony roms (kitkat, lollipop, marshmallow) aren’t grouped together into one picture with a button to pick which picture in the burst to choose?

    I know I could post it to the community group but I need the intouch app to be able to join it and I’ve already downgraded back to kitkat official after using build 3027 (the last build for 2015 before they went on a break) for a few months. If some of these issues still aren’t fixed, could someone mention them in the group?

  • Arch9

    Concept firmware is mean to be light, fast and as stock AOSP as possible to maintain the faster update, not to add stuff that can make more bloat.

    Is there a FTF UP TO DATE ? Please

    Feels like don’t is actually going backwards in both hardware and software dept. Biggest and most obvious comparison is how current iPhone lineup and Samsung’s lineup (after note and the strongly rumored S7 Mini) for flagship looks similar to that of Sony’s Z5 series. Plus this year S7 more or less added things Sony had for years and it quickly became the best smartphone. Meanwhile, every announcement Sony makes this year is not too detached from shooting one self in the foot.

    Wait or Google it yourself.

  • Will Komba

    will the concept rom work for the z3c d5883?
