  • aidy.lucas

    I’m on still on 33.2.A.2.93 and getting anywhere between 3.5-5hrs screen time depending on where I am and what I’m doing at the time. Guessing this might finally be 6.01 as build no changed from 33.2.A.2.93 to 33.2.A.3.74

  • Abheet Nagar

    I didn’t get the update in software update section. But support section says updates available. What is this.

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    wait for a 1-2 days, update is newly seeded, it hits individual mobile in waves, to keep download server load under control….

  • Mahesh

    Try through Xperia Companion.

  • Alvin

  • Jaz Amora

  • Tomislav Matić

    New home launcher and new security patch from August. That is what I notice.

  • Zlays

  • Tomislav Matić

    It is still Android 6.0.1. And new launcher has an option to enable home screen rotation.

  • Zlays

    6.0.1 or 6.0 only?mine is 6.0 only build 33.2.A.2.93 model F3111…
    Can you post a screenshot of android version,krenel etc?
    Many thanks…

  • Tomislav Matić

    For Android you are right. It was Android 6.0. I can’t post screenshots now because it is mobile from my friend. Tomorrow afternoon I will post all screenshots.

  • Zlays

    So it’s not 6.0.1 that’s shame… For the moment I thought it is 6.0.1 but it’s still 6.0…

  • Mike

    before the update there are occasions that I cannot pull down the notification pannel and my touch screen is not responsive, i have to add a little more preasure when pressing for it to detect my touch. So after the update which i did last night, the issue regarding my touch screen was gone.

  • Jakub Schmidt

    Just updated mine earlier today.

    I can say that battery life improves a lot compared to previous version as well as the touch screen. Other than that, camera launch a bit faster than before or i can say the phone itself. Another noticeably changes are security patch, auto rotate option in the launcher and dialer app whenever you will be engaged you will see cute caller animation on the status bar which i think or i never notice it was there. I don’t see a lot of changes for 700MB size update :( i guess all major tweaks to improve the performance of the phone. MM version still in 6.0.

  • Zlays

    Thanks for the info…
    Nice improvements there…

  • ryq24

    Maybe you have to update again using Sony pc companion.

  • August security patch? really? I didn´t expect that from Sony.

  • Zlays

    Thank you!

  • I was trying to update my Xperia XA Dual 3112 to the last 33.2.B.3.74 via Flashtool. After the flashing finished “successfully” (according to the Flashtool) I got a bricked phone!!! No Flashboot, no battery charging icon, no Sony logo, no respons to any button combination, no vibrations, nothing. Only red led when it is plugged into the PC usb or wall charger, and that’s it!!! Any ideas how to fix it??? =(
    Any suggestions would be highly appreciated, as the device is few hours old.

  • Abheet Nagar

    Okay thanks. I think improvement is their after talking to others on Web who have it. I Still have to update. I hope it helps.

  • puu

    try to repair with pc companion

  • I can not repair with PC/Xperia Companion, because my phone does not enter the Flashmode (Vol. – and Plug-in). Therefore Companion does not see my phone. :(

  • Dave iam

    IMHO Yes a lot, now i can use for 3.30 hours SOT and over 21 hours autonomy

  • Dave iam

    3 updates

  • Dave iam

    The battery life is improved

  • Abid Shah

    After updating my xa dual sd card unmounts automatically after locking the screen?

  • Abid Shah


  • SM

    3.30 of SOT is not much enough though

  • SM

    more than 3 in my counts i should be anything near to 5-7

  • SM

    can you tell me abou the SOT on new update?

  • SM

    What’s the SOT on new update?

  • Dave iam

    17 hours on, 3.30 hours SOT

  • Dave iam

    Nope, it is three i’m sure.

  • Dave iam

    OK, buy a Zenfone max. It’s the right performance for the 2300mha battery. OMG!

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    I did the update using xperia companion. It was about 2.9 gb. It should be less than 1 gb probably using OTA .

  • LPX

  • Jeffrey Balindres
