in Firmware, Xperia Z3 series

Xperia Z3 Compact_23.5.A.1.291A new update has been certified by the PTCRB for the Xperia Z3 Compact with build number 23.5.A.1.291. This update compares to current build 23.5.A.0.575 – the move from 23.5.A.0.XXX to 23.5.A.1.XXX is likely to mean a reasonably tangible update, which is likely to re-introduce STAMINA mode for the Xperia Z3 series. We will let you know once the update starts to roll.

Thanks leso60 and sebaa!

  • And for Z5 Series? Stamina mode even on build .253 still sucks! :S

  • sebaa123

    Hey XperiaBlog , i will send you again a message when are rolling up ! ;)

  • Kiss my e(lbows)

    Thanks SONY.

  • Branko

    There is no Stamina anymore. The one in Z5 builds and Z3 betas is the rebranded L battery saver. Stop spreading fucking lies, so people update their device and get worse battery life because of it expecting proper Stamina.

    Stamina as we know it died with L.

  • Waiting for the final update on my Z2

    Yessss! I’m glad to hear about this! Though, I’m planning to get an Xperia Z5 Compact soon…I guess I’ll wait and see what this update provides.

    Thanks Sony Mobile!

  • raju

    What about Z1 compact

  • illstplaya .

    I think you already got your final update. If there is another it’s probably going to be minor

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    So true. IDK why they’re calling this stamina.. pfft Stamina we knew did some serious sh*t to the battery.

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    More like Google’s Low battery mode renamed into Stamina. This isn’t the stamina I used to know.

  • A. D’Souza

    Z2 rollout has already began… Check on XperiaFirm…

  • A. D’Souza

    Rollout for Z2 (D6503) has already started for few regions.

  • Alvin

    Also certified for D6653 and some of other 2015 models and started to rollout on Z2.

    Fingers crossed for the last and best firmware sony ever give on these models!

  • Yes. The one who supposed reintroduce Stamina mode and fix a lot of bugs. Like in the Beta Testing program

  • Samuel


  • Samuel

    it is dead, no more updates for the Z1

  • hansip

    No, it was dead in M. on L the Stamina Mode is still working, but unfortunately bugged with MRA issue.

    Hopefully the N will bring back true Stamina like performance, even though it’s not Sony’s advantage anymore. here’s hoping
