    Visited the website not so many minutes ago and found out that the Z3 Compact Marshmallow edition for Slovenia is already there published but both Xperia Companion and Software Update on Z3C insist that the phone is up to date. So my thought remains the same, the only way to actually get Marshmallow here in Slovenia, is to flash it personally. I could check the update information again in a week or two to make sure it’s the truth and not speculations or rumours by Sony or its software program. Maybe this time I could wait a bit more to get both the Companion release or the OTA.

    Should I wait more or should I flash it straight to the phone. My patience isn’t thin, but time is running out after more than five months of official waiting for a proper release.

  • Nathan Odong

    Something in this article isn’t quite correct. Not all Xperia Z2s have received the update. At least people in the UK certainly haven’t.

  • Raj Singh

    Still no update for the SGP621 in North America… guessing I’ll get the update over the next few days.

  • Amimanot

    I still find it funny seeing how HUGE that phone is on him in the setup screen

  • christere

    I noticed that too. And also that the bottom apps must be centred now. I tried to move them to the sides, but no.

  • bluestreak_v

    Coincidentally, the update also became available today for my Z3 Compact (not Z3 Tablet Compact), D5833 CDA#1288-7062 (Customized TW)

  • Many thanks for the link :D. My Xperiafirm doesn’t work :/

  • Alvin

    One word : lol

  • Alvin

    A little off-topic, but did anyone experienced some problems with PC Companion? I’m using Z3, Xperia L, and mini pro, but I can’t update or repair any of those phones, and it says something like an error in running an update components in my computer.. How to fix it?

    ( I updated my z3 a week ago, but I still want to fix this app)

    if you do factory reset anyway, then there’s no need to wait for Companion one.

    Thanks for this – so in the case of a wi-fi tablet, the time will depend on market, region or country (considering its not associated with a network)?

    In the case of market, region and country, am I right in assuming Sony Ireland? Or are there other bodies involved?


    wtf still didnt got mm update on z3 compact d5833 in india not even showing on pc companion

    Stamina is WAY better than Doze. I’m using my updated to Marshmallow Z3 Tablet and in less than 10 minutes on light load 3% of battery is gone, and it predicts I’ll get hours of juice, not DAYS as I used to.

    Also, apparently I can’t use the 200GB SD Card as internal steno matter what I do.

    How come nobody sell this device anywhere? And if they do. they only have the black one..

    Welcome marshmallow … update notice (OTA) (Europe-Italy) (Xperia Z3 D6603)

    I hope this means NL isn’t far. Not that I have any problems with 5.1.1, I just like new and shiny.

  • Lorenzo Soannini

    Appena aggiornato, ma ho un bug grafico: la barra delle notifiche rimane nera; mi accade solo con le app stock di Sony, per esempio con whatsapp si colora, anche a te dà problemi?

    Neither Stamina Mode or Doze works when your device is active though, so even if it’s light use Stamina or Doze doesnt affect that :)
    But I agree, been using Doze for a while on my Z5 and it’s way worse than Stamina mode.

  • Raj Singh

    Sony doesn’t know how to sell phones but you can buy the X Performance if you really want one… whether or not Sony sells it in Germany.

  • Rocky

    I just had an update push out to mine today, but when the update was over, I was still on 5.1.1. What the heck?!

    what i like…more options/information in settings, and better organized
    what i don’t…still no NFC icon on taskbar. and stamina gone.
    what puts me off a bit…notification list goes off center in landscape mode. screencap

    Fantastico, anche qui in Slovenia ha un mio amico gia ricevuto Marshmallow sul suo Z3, e devo dire che la notizia e’ incoraggiante, ma non per il mio modello che e’ quello Z3 Compact. Ho contattato il distributore sloveno per piu’ informazioni, saro’ presto contattato anche da loro.

  • Adrian G.

    If anyone has received an update or upgrade to Marshmallow for XPERIA, then push the company SONY to officially publish the information so it’s possible to interprete even for an OTA or Xperia Companion download package, until they just sit there still and ignore us users, the situation will not change even a bit.

    It’ s more difficult to work with information in the dark than in sunlight.

    SONY, wake up and publish what’s missing on the official page and everything will be fine.

  • I’ve uprgaded my z3 compact (phone, not tablet) a few weeks ago and it totally killed my battery usage. I started to feel it immediately, but wasn’t measuring it. It just felt really bad (while it should have been an improvement). I’ve just started to actually measure it, will compare it in detail to my girlfriend’s z3C which is still running Lollypop.

    However here’s a disturbing piece of data: it’s been off AC and on standby for an hour now and battery is down 7%. It predicts that battery will last for 13 more hours. On standby. These predictions used to tell me well above a day (though I had stamina on all the time).

    Unfortunatelly not even the factory reset helped, either really hasn’t arrived yet or as I suspected earlier, my country is locked for this device, the service customer center in Ljubljana told me that if it still doesn’t show any kind of download data for an upgrade, than this software update center has a bug or the company Sony hasn’t published any information of the upgrade yet. But they also kindly advise to get to them for a manual upgrade to Marshmallow if nothing happens.

    What’s the decryption pass?

    As I’m still waiting for this 23.5.A.0.570 upgrade to Marshmallow 6.0, I can no longer keep up with their corporate stupidity for european and other countries as well, if by the 7th of this month, I get nothing, then I might launch a silent complaint to our slovenian authority for customer negligence by the manufacturers also known as ZPS. If geoblocking is the problem for some devices, than this is the solution to force them to cooperate, anyone else should do the same in their respected countries. Enough is enough, SONY !

    But then, this will be avoided if for the better part, they publish the missing upgrade information.

    Fortunatelly for us, they published the information today, on their official website. Finally !

    The official SONY statement to my problem with not being able to download a thing, was : ”The upgrade availability depends upon the carrier’s or domestic market’s interest in aquiring this software”. I mean WTF !?, so that means basically I’m getting my ass kicked because of my country’s stupid politics about getting the upgrade to the market to this device. But I refuse to give up, I’ve told them my side of the story as soon as the statement has arrived today morning. I won’t accept that this homeland is responsable for not releasing the much avaited software improvements, that’s BS by Sony. We all know who pulls the strings when getting updates out on the market, they are definitely the manufacturers and not the carriers to blame here.

    So my decision for the moment stands because I’ve put the company spokeperson for Sony in Slovenia through the test of telling the truth, he didn’t pass with flying colours unfortunatelly, the data is published on their official website, so their tactics won’t work with me. So far my carrier Telekom Slovenije isn’t at fault, I’m using their signal, and updates don’t get pushed here on unbranded phones like mine, so it’s the company at fault here. No more BS, please Sony.

    Installed today on my SGP621. Lovin’ it so far. First real test will be trying to get Adaptive Storage up and running

  • Adam Graver

    Extended usage is an option within STAMINA mode that increased battery life during use. It did this by reducing performance such as screen refresh rate.

  • Adrian G.

    Yesterday an attempt to manually upgrade my Z3C to its latest firmware failed, I flashed the firmware via Flashtool only to have realised that the newest version of the program would get stuck on system.sin and never continue pass this point, also my phone was never rooted or had unlocked its bootloader for flashing. So in the end I decided to recover its previous system version which was Lollipop to at least enter into Android boot mode. That failed so many times that I realised again that PC or Xperia Companion won’t be able to help me, like last time a mear six months ago. Well, for now, it’s heading again to the service center in LJ, they knew how to fix it and I have no doubts they will fix it again and add the much awaited firmware upgrade which is 23.5.A.0.570 for Slovenia by Telekom.

    I’ve heard some wonderful news from my service and repairs center in LJ, they successfully upgraded my XPERIA and they’re sending it back to me tomorrow, with full Marshmallow edition and all is better now finally. Now that’s speed for someone like them, they were never so fast in doing things properly, I guess they’ve improved a lot.

    I hope that my Marshmallow experience with Z3C in Slovenia won’t be that unpleasant one in some other countries I’ve heard not so many weeks ago.

    I’ve run out of patience, yes, but now, I’m as happy as I’ll ever be.

  • Adrian G.

    I’m very very pleased with my XPERIA on Marshmallow, even smoother and faster than the previous buggy Lollipop edition, that was a total mistake by Sony, fortunatelly, all is forgiven now, except the lack of simple update systems notifications like over OTA or PC Companion, that is not forgiven.

    Please don’t repeat the same mistake twice.
