New firmware (32.2.A.0.305) rolling for Xperia Z5 family [Update: Z3+ too]

by XB on 7th October 2016

in Firmware, Xperia Z4 and Z3+ series, Xperia Z5 series


xperia-z5-familyA small update has started to roll to the Sony Xperia Z5 range which moves the build number from 32.2.A.0.253 to version 32.2.A.0.305. This remains Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow firmware, but updates the Android security patches to 1 August 2016 (versus 1 April 2016 previously ).

It also introduces the ‘soft charging’ or ‘charging optimization’ feature, which we first saw in Beta firmware earlier in the year. This feature is designed to optimise your battery life.

Other changes, according to the changelog, include enhanced audio volume in notifications/ringtones and improved handling of Bluetooth devices. If you have downloaded the update, feel free to post some pictures and comments below. We will provide FTF firmware links in due course.

Update: The update is now rolling to the Xperia Z3+ too, we would also expect it to hit the Z4 Tablet shortly.

Thanks Henry, Informezzo and Simon!

  • Zakaria Mahmoud

    any update for Z2 ?

  • Sultan Albatati

    Anyone already update? Please send ui screenshot, icon, and security patches

  • Shehab Skull

    any changes in ui ?

  • Nicosea

    Have they finally updated the security patches? And if so to which date…?

  • Mateusz
  • razorg

    Looking at the firmware number, we understand that this update could only bring small improvements. One should not expect massive changes. However, I seriously hope Sony addressed the heating and battery drain issues on Z5 Compact, as well as adding up-to-date Security Patches, which could serve us well until the Nougat era starts…

  • Informezzo

    I’m still updating my z5c via Sony PC Companion, changelog:
    – The latest security enhancements included
    – All of our latest bug fixes and improvements
    – Audio volume enhanced in notifications and ringtones
    – Improved handling of Bluetooth connected devices

  • Sorry but Z2 has received is final update

  • razorg

    Can you post a screenshot of the device info after you’re done with the updating procedure. What I really want to know the most about this update is the Android Security Patches date

  • razorg

    It might receive another Marshmallow build, along with Z3, with newer security patches though, as a counter attack to Samsung, who updated Galaxy S5 (Z2’s main rival at the time) with September 2016 patches… At least that’s what I’m hoping…

  • Ming William Lee

    Look even Docomo’s Z5 got the update with new security patch in the summer, plus Qnovo adaptive charging, now look at us…

  • Informezzo

    Sure. But the download is painfully slow hahaha

  • razorg

    Dude, any chances that you’re from Cyprus? :D That username of yours is quite similar to our capital city’s name, that’s why I asked :)

  • Nicosea

    Nope… I like the name Nico and I like the sea… so Nicosea looks like a natural nickname for me.

    But I was in Cyprus one, beautiful island!

  • Nicosea

    I hope “The latest security enhancements included” means at least September security patches….

  • Gambi

    Second on the battery drain and heating…

  • Ron Lufias

    Updated. First thing pop out was charging optimization. August security enhancements https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2b7891ca30c44253f0bd24d81a4f51a4150c7ffa0129b8df70861f9c75a47ad7.png .

  • razorg

    Wow, thanks very much for the info. August patches eh? Better than April, I’d say :)

  • razorg

    Hahah cool name man :))

  • Ron Lufias

    Yup, dated August 1, 2016. Btw, does this charging optimization will be something similar like Qnovo Adaptive Charging? We’ll see.

  • XperiaBlog

    Can you post a screenie of the About phone section showing the new firmware number please? We will stick it into the main post. Cheers!

  • Ron Lufias
  • Ming William Lee

    This one should be similar to the one in Z3 Android M beta for not charging your phone fully instead of charging slowly at the third phase.

  • Ron Lufias

    Ah, I see. Hopefully this can prolong our battery life.

  • Vitali

    Will the Z3 get this kind of update in the future?

    Also,
    “– Audio volume enhanced in notifications and ringtones”
    The Z3 really needs this one! I think you all Z3 users will agree with me..

  • Zakaria Mahmoud

    ok

  • Ming William Lee

    Humm.. actually this one is to further reduce your battery life (by not charging fully) in increase your cycle times… So in the short run it just further reduce your battery life(as it mentioned).

  • Okazuma

    “Audio volume enhanced in notifications and ringtones”

    Thanks God!!! :)

  • Haziq Hasnol Zam Zam

    What does this do/solve actually ??

  • MikeU

    Why would Sony release a feature that would further reduce battery life?

  • Ming William Lee

    To increase life cycles for battery, especially for old devices. Please take note this one is NOT QNOVO!

  • Steven Khoo Skkl

    I think it’s meant as battery usage in day to day is less but battery lifespan over the next few years is improved

  • Ron Lufias

    Which means actually this features doesn’t fully charge your phone instead limit to a slow trickle charge. So daily usage, your battery wouldn’t last long but to increase the battery life cycle right? I hope I get it right this time.

  • Ming William Lee

    Yes, you are right!

  • Oliver Payne

    You can see which devices/carriers have already released .305

    Any Update for Volte in Xperia Z3+ E6553

  • Ates

    Does it fix that thing…please tell me!

  • Sky

    i didnt get any update my phone is xperia z5 premium dual

  • Gosh, finally! Does anyone know if it’s an OTA Update? Haven’t got any notification here in Mexico
    Thanks Guys!

  • MikeU

    Your response makes sense — shorten daily battery usage to increase battery longevity.

  • Mohamed Faiez

    My Xperia z5 premium dual did not receive any updates!

  • Parag Sant

    Can we expect latest google security patch update for Z2 Z3 series as i am owner of Z2.

  • Ming William Lee

    How’s the overall battery and thermal overall? Not expecting those to be improved, just hoping they don’t get worse…

  • Nicosea

    Security patches 1 August, a shame…

  • Nicosea

    Security patches 1st August, a shame…

  • Johannes

    Are the Stall apps still there?

  • Aldi Wan Kenobi

    Can you try these settings. It helped in my Z5Compact and my battery definitely lasted much longer between charges:

    Settings > Location > 3 dots (upper right hand corner) > Scanning
    Disable both Wi-Fi Scanning and Bluetooth scanning.

    If that does not help, try this next:

    Settings > Wi-Fi > 3 dots (upper right hand corner) > Setting > Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep
    Select either: Only when plugged in OR Never

    Hope this helps.

  • Aldi Wan Kenobi

    “Audio volume enhanced in notifications and ringtones”

    What was the problem with this?

    To be honest, I am quite pleased with the audio/volume of the Z5Compact speakers–as compared to my previous device a Z3Compact at least.

  • Actman

    Thanks SONY for being so attentive. Guess their engineers were being patronising each and every blog/site!

  • Actman

    Why not include the new icons for the dialler, contact and messaging? We are not demanding for the new lockscreen tho! Isn’t it too hard to include in it?

  • Ichsan Rismunandar

    Just updated my Z3+ dual, started watching a lot of HD videos on youtube and I noticed that the back is actually cooler than it used to. Battery also seems to drain at a slower rate as well.

  • Sadman Khan

    Just download the latest apks from apkmirror. You’re welcome

  • Actman

    Oh yea? Just send me the link of the new icon for the phone dialler would you? Expert!

  • Vlad
  • …and X compact! From 34.1.A.1.198 to 34.1.A.3.22

  • Errr… soft charging never came to concept…

  • Plug it to PC Companion, I’m downloading already…Getting ready for the update!

  • Ming William Lee

    Did you update it? Its build number moved significantly, hoping it is going to provide a more stable battery life(sometimes very good and sometimes just so so) and solve some very obvious bug (the delayed battery percentage on notification panel)

  • Yes, updated.

  • Ming William Lee

    Any change log? Screen shot for versions? How’s the overall feeling?

  • I have not change log..
    Maybe it seems to me (I don’t remember how it was before the update), but the camera is now more “noise” and its launch is now faster..?

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f60186409e836be91ae965fd587bdc6a26b32b85e6ea5e2e3f2138635ac49e8d.png

  • Ming William Lee

    Seriously? More noise?! Even getting worse?! How about the security patch version?

  • Revised photo. No noise, like, not increased. Just influenced by the mode of HDR (in my room poor lighting).
    “security patch version” – 1.09.16

  • Ming William Lee

    Thanks for your info, it still seems like Sony is not going to take Z series seriously anymore as Z5 series and Z3+ still only got a August security path instead of September for X series… Sony is doing this again, even the same Android version but very different system, it reminded me of the time of transforming from Sony Ericsson to Sony Mobile where we just got a buggy “fake” android 4.0 and that was the end of the story…

  • Reza

    I’ve just updated last night on my Z3+ E6533 Indonesa. It’s smoother, the processor a bit cooler than before especially when browsing, and for the battery life I still have no found the different, needs some time to figured it out.

  • Dilipkumar

    Is there any new theme update bcoz all ur screenshots showing a new wallpaper

  • Dilipkumar

    Will Z5 recieve Xperia X UI in android 7.0 ???
    Lock screen ?

  • fraulein

    Pls, let us know about the battery! Thank you (:

  • razorg

    Probably with Nougat update.

  • Mohamed Faiez

    downloading it now thank you @OsvaGrey:disqus

  • Marinko Agic

    Battery will be better day by day..now he look what you do and when you charging so it will be more power on battery after some days

  • Steven Khoo Skkl

    Heheh.. changed that one didnt ya?

  • Steven Khoo Skkl

    Downloaded the update as soon as I saw the change logs as posted. Noticeable details are:
    1. phone is cooler even under the hot sun with CPUtemp showing lower than usual. i.e Browsing using LTE under the sun used to see a spike to 58 degrees and a constant 53 but today’s usage was better at only 50 or less(adaptive brightness on)
    2. Battery seems to last just as long despite it being said to be adjusted
    Battery before update was at 73%. After roughly 7 minutes of optimizing, it was adjusted to 60%. Charge time seems to be slightly shorter but negligible.
    Overall, ending the day with at least 20% charge(I have 39% charge with 3 and a half hour of SOT and half of that on LTE in the sun). Results could be worse though if I used it for Video but overall, it’s impressive if the usable battery charge is really less that last time.

    Cool, thanks.

  • Bashar Shehab

    I see that you’re here, too :3

  • Ates

    What about incoming ringtones volume does it louder?

  • Steven Khoo Skkl

    I don’t use notification much so I don’t know. But if I do use.. It was plenty loud for me..

  • Ates

    Thank you for answer…is it louder than before…incoming default ringtone on incoming call…mass people have that problem about incoming volume on ringtones

  • Ates

    What about incoming ringtones volume does it louder?Thank’s in advanced!

  • Ates

    What about incoming ringtones volume does it louder?

  • Steven Khoo Skkl

    A little louder.. But still on the softer side.. But j might have to try it again

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    Updated last night. No software glitches experienced after update.

  • RohitBopnna

    M4 Aqua Dual (India) also has an update, Not sure wants in the update though. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b360205b3c884e534f3544a471f41d97500e0686b140b5c712d0c5e2ad85a171.jpg

  • Sadman Khan

    Someone else already did it lol

  • theskig

    Same as mine try pc companion or we have to wait a little bit more

  • Irfan Sumaro

    The differences i see in z3+ after update
    1) phone isn’t heating too much
    2) smoother (it was laggy before update)
    3) ringtone enhancement
    4)battery draining little bit slowly as compared to previous update
    Overall happy with thw update :)

  • Sultan Albatati

    Xperia m4 aqua got update to. Already rolled

  • Felipe Orellana
  • cheebc

    There’s still no update yet in Malaysia for my Z5P

  • razorg

    What’s updated in M4 Aqua with this? Could you please tell us?

  • razorg

    Hey man. I’ve the same E5823 Z5 Compact. Can you tell us how are the things with heating and battery drain?

  • Stergios Papoutsoglou

    For me pc companion says it has an update and before I can click it it says that’s up to date and doesn’t let me update (z5 premium dual)

  • Reza

    Well… IMO, there’s a bit significant changes of the battery life and it’s longer than before, I don’t use stamina mode, whic I think it’s one of the best battery life for a phone with SD 810.

  • It still gets pretty warm, haven’t noticed much improvement in battery life but its only been a day.

  • fraulein

    Many thanks for your answer.

  • July Security Patches

  • razorg

    Wow! Only July? I’m so disappointed. I thought at least Sony could provide decent software support for its mid-range devices in Android universe. I guess I having a “wishful thinking” session…

  • razorg

    I see. Thanks for the reply. I guess I’m going to do a System Restore with Xperia Companion once this firmware goes live in UK region and rule out any other things that’s making my Z5C heat up right now…

  • razorg

    You’re right. Qnovo technologies are not/can not be implemented on our Z5 series with a software update as it is a completely different system. And its max supported battery capacity is 2700 mAh (at least that was they said when they unveiled X-X Performance phones a while ago, and it seems Qnovo improved itself with XZ as well, as XZ has 2900 mAh battery and Qnovo Adaptive Charging feature indicated in its specs)

  • Stergios Papoutsoglou

    Yes I can do that, but that means loosing the data and while I do have backups the apps will need to be downloaded again, something I not fond of. If it comes to that I will wait for Android 7 update,at which point I will factory reset the phone
    Thanks though

  • Reza

    You’re welcome my friend

  • Actman

    Got mine for the dual sim version yesterday…

  • MikeU

    My Z5 Premium’s region is also Singapore, which has yet to receive the most recent update (32.2.A.0.305), according to https://xpericheck.com/device/E6883

  • Venkatasurya Prakash

    Have you had this update through OTA or through xperia companion or something..??

  • Stergios Papoutsoglou

    Good to know that I am not the only one. As it seems the only thing we can do is wait for now

  • Alex B

    Shame on Sony to not provide Android KitKat for Xperia Z5 Compact. Z5 Compact has same amount of RAM as for example much older Xperia ZR – 2GB. This amount of RAM is OK for Android 4.4.4 KK. But it is NOT OK for Android 5 and Android 6. Why Sony has not upgraded RAM amount, as we all know next OS “eats” more RAM? On my old Xperiz ZR I was able to run 2 applications (big game Real Racing 3 + Chrome) and switch among them without reloading. Now I can’t go from game to home screen, then to Chrome and then switch back to game… game gets cold started. Shame on you, Sony! Why Z5 Compact doesn’t have 3GB, same as big Z5? I don’t believe that there was not enough space to put 3GB in it.

  • Domus

    my Z3+ still no receive update notification (I’m on 32.2.A.0.253_R4C, Customized DE) and even on XperiFirm firmware version is my actual version.

    Is this update for selected market only?

  • Tochi Nwodu

    Lol it simply means upgrade have u checked Samsung phones with 4gigs of ram and how they handle it?
    Quit being sarcastic

  • Ates

    From today you have it…

  • Ates
  • Domus

    Yes…just received the notice on Xperia Companion! Thanks!

  • Domus

    exactly!!

  • Ates

    Please check heating and volume on ringtones incoming call…does it fix

  • HAWX

    I have one and it handles like a boss after patches. Howevern 3 and 2 gig models loses hard compared to Sony’s

  • Saikat Pradhan

    can sony xperi z3 plus support volte for india reliance jio.. its support 850 band.. please update volte features

  • Tommy He

    Also hit by heating and battery drain issue on my Z5 Compact recently. However, I don’t think it’s caused by Sony as there’s no Firmware Update happened which could cause this.

    Thus I checked all the recent updated apps for the troublemaker. Thanks to a small app called “Play Info”, a silent Play Service update were pushed recently and it nearly matched the date when Z5 Compact started getting hot.

    Well, it’s not the first time Google messed up the update. Thus I go to “Settings” -> “Apps” -> Find “Google Play Service” -> Tap “Manage Storage” -> Tap “Clear All Data” at the bottom.

    After doing this, my Z5 Compact returns to normal cool status and battery stops draining like a leaking pipe.

    Hope above steps help.

    Surprisingly, my wife’s Z5 Premium doesn’t have this issue at all.

    Why do you ask, are they planning to remove them?

  • ᅠᅠᅠ

    Note that the announced changes to battery usage are supposed to slightly *reduce* the time a full charge lasts, not prolong it.

    Any experiences yet on the Wi-Fi bug? It’s annoying me a lot, and it seems to have gotten worse with the .253 update.

    This update completely ruined the audio on my Z5. Whenever I turn volume up over around 50 % there is very bad distortion like on a guitar amp when cranking it. It gets worse at higher volume. Overall audio is now much lower than before, as the full range can’t be used. Furthermore, it does not seem max volume was increased anyway, they only changed tonality in a way the speaker just can’t handle. I wish I could roll this sh t back… I’m quite angry at how bad Sony development and testing is now.

    32.2.A.0.305 made my Xperia Z5 compact unable to pick up 4G networks, and even often any networks at all. Thank god for wifi calling, but still reason enough to wish I had not taken the update. Sony says they are working on a fix.

  • Daniel Johanzon

    I myself have very good sound after the update, crap satisfied. has compact xperia z5

  • Arne Lea

    I have the same issue on my Xperia Z5 Premium. Hope there be a fix soon or have to consider factory reset :-(

  • Mirsad Dedic

    I have same problem

  • Steven Khoo Skkl

    I understand what that means, I’ve always understood what that means. I also told my dad the very same thing and both of us were amazed when I’m actually getting similar life out of it and cooler cpu temps

  • Karoline

    Same problem here with my Premium. Problem with mobile network, sms…

  • Daniel Johanzon

    It is the second time now I get the update 32.2.A.0.305 got it in bringing the week and now I pocket it again today,
    Does anyone know why or was there something wrong with the first ????

  • Ebbe Wikstrom

    And there the update is out from Sony and it works great.

    This 305 update broke Android Pay on my Z5 model E6603. The first time I swiped at a terminal, it popped up a message that Android Pay won’t work on a rooted phone. My phone has never been rooted. Resetting Google Play Services and Android Pay hasn’t fixed it; now when I try to re-add my credit card it says “Google is unable to verify that your phone is Android compatible.” This really sucks. I used Android Pay a lot until now.

  • mmceorange

    Hmm.. my Z5c is still on .253 saying it’s up to date…

  • Max Bas

    Scary… do you still confirm this?

  • Jey Pablo

    I have a question. Why i didn’t find the 32.2.A.0.305 in z5 compact(E5823)?

  • Hadi

    Hi, how you update it ? , I have the same model and I dont have the update ? How ?

  • 3_nity

    Please keep! ;)

  • ᅠᅠᅠ

    I haven’t noticed any drop either, I assume that improvements to battery consumption in other aspects (such as sensors, I believe) must have more than made up for whatever little the new battery preservation costs.

  • Mosiur Rahman

    When I receive this update? I am from Bangladesh

  • LazAndKor

    Propably this week. I have a Z5 with the Customized GR, but both Cosmote and Vodaphone GR sent already this update for their Z5 users a week ago.There is a high chance that you will get this update this week or the next for sure. Just go to xpericheck and search in the according Model of your Phone (the model can be seen on your settings-> about phone). Also if you could tell me our phone’s customization version ( type in the dialer *#*#7378423#*#* then go to Service info and software info. There you can see your customization version.

  • theskig

    Still waiting on my Z5 Premium Dual

  • theskig

    Still missing the update…

  • theskig

    Aren’t you able to understand wich one is line 1 or 2? Do you need so many space in the status bar?
    I hate them so much…

  • hrishi

    Do you know the procedure to remove the sim labels if the phone is rooted?
    Seems like the midrange phn only have them.

  • theskig

    When I had the Z3 Dual with root I removed the labels with an xposed module

  • hrishi

    Ok Thanks.

  • sal

    It seems there is a bug in the DND mode. In fact, any kind of exception is correctly managed, and the telephone is always silent.

  • Deki

    Still nothing in Macedonia, Generic EU… Waiting… :)

  • Sara Sopeña

    For me this update has been a pain. I updated my phone yesterday, with full battery, and after the updating process my phone does not recognize my SIM. Also the phone is overheating and the battery is draining like a fool: 1 hour after the updating the battery has drop from 100% to 50%. Any suggestions?

  • Sony Z series

    Hi. Please explain to me how you downloaded this update for your Z3+. I don’t know how I must do it. Please help ))

  • Irfan Sumaro

    install and open companion, connect ur phone to pc then click on MTP then u will see update option in xperia companion,read instructions there and update ur device

  • Sony Xperia Z3+

    Thank you for your reply friend. But i have one question, I bought Sony Z3+ on April 2016 and never installed any updates for it. Now software version is: Lollipop 5.0.2 Build number: 28.0.A.4.8 I mean that software version which I have is the first factory version. If I update software, will my Android Lollipop version be changed to Android Marshmallow? I want to update device just to decrease strong heating. And most importantly I want to avoid any system lags which I can meet in new version. Please help me to solve these questions.

  • Irfan Sumaro

    I also purchased in april ,download from xperia companion, this update has less heating issue and dont have lagging problem

  • Sony Xperia Z3+

    Thank you very much

  • Sony Xperia Z3+

    I am also want to mention one moment about Z3+. With Lollipop Z3+ can record 4K video more than 40 minutes without any warning notifications(I tested it). If you test your Z3+ with Marshmallow (new firmware 32.2.A.0.305) version in 4K camera mode please let me know how long it can stay.

  • Sony Xperia Z3+

    Hi. If you tested your Z3+ with Marshmallow (new firmware 32.2.A.0.305) version in 4K camera mode please let me know how long it can stay.

  • Shamoy Rahman

    You’re running nougat already?

  • razorg

    We still haven’t received the SIM-Free firmware version here in the UK! Why the hold-up?! :(

  • Ates

    Just so it is a mystery. Why is skipped SIM.free UK version. I contacted support UK but they do not know why this is so. Why the hold up .305 Customized UK nobody knows. When….when will be the software update because all other version still have it .305

  • razorg

    You contacted Sony Local? What are they saying? This is really weird tbh. It was always a bit slower, the release of sim free UK update, but it was never this late :( Have been waiting for it for almost a month now :(

  • Ates

    Yes Sony Local a and they do not know when will be available which is very annoying…heey they don’t know…hahah…whole month has passed.

    There’s this topic about the same issue here. One of the guys says he’s in contact with a person who works at O2 UK. He says he’s going to reach out to him and report back what’s going on.

  • Ates

    Thank’s for info.We’ll see what happens…I really hope in next few days or before.

  • Mosiur Rahman

    where you from?

  • Mosiur Rahman

    when it will available in BANGLADESH?????????????????????????

  • Mosiur Rahman

    have you received this update?

  • Shamoy Rahman

    I’m on Z3, so I’m not getting the update. I’m just gonna buy either XZ or the 2017 Xperia phone.

  • theskig

    My phone comes from Hong Kong.
    Still no update.

  • Bob

    Just got the update in Canada. Better late than never.

  • Ates

    I chat man from sony support and he tell me that .305 will be available soon but that don’t know when…in incoming weeks and we must wait…wait and wait…so sad :(

  • rocy76

    I just got this update (for the Z5) a couple days ago and have noticed I have a weaker WiFi/mobile signal strength, some WiFi signals I used to connect to i no longer can… And a shorter battery life.

  • tjtkdtjr

    It’s been released about an hour ago.

  • Ates

    Yess..thanks I hope so for Z3+ too today!

  • Nick

    Just got this update for my Z5C and seems to be working fine for me so far. I tested the BT audio but hard to say if it’s working a lot better since it wasn’t working that poorly for me. In the eye-candy department, I was happy to see that they’ve fixed the system status icon for mobile signal so that it can be rendered as a dark icon. Some of you may have noticed that it would always remain white even if an app requested that they be rendered dark (ex: Google Calendar).

  • sotwr9

    I think this update killed my Z5 Compact. Just after the update the phone would not see any WiFi networks, but just sat there saying ‘Turning on….’. I tried various remedies – re-starting, checking the power optimization wasn’t set etc. but no progress. I then thought I’d better do a system repair and re-load the entire O/S. I did so, but now the phone just hangs up at the first Select WiFi Network page, and the button to skip this step is greyed out. I called Sony and they denied any responsibility and blamed Google. Any help or suggestions gratefully received!

  • my Z5 battery getting worse after the update, still have heating problem. really hate snapdragon 810!

  • Osaid Saqqa

    I got it on my z4 tablet just today!!

  • andre lai

    Is the Issue fixed yet?
    I am scared of updating the phone since, when I updated my z5 last time, I had to sent the phone back to sony twice.

  • Bujar Nimani

    My xperia z5 not work stereo speakers i think for bottom speakers and not connect automatically wireless and fast drain battery.
    I think for this latest firmware 32.2.A.0.305

  • Quincy

    So when are Sony bringing back the FM visualizer feature on the Z5???

  • Stefan Flues

    I share your fear. I’ve not updated yet for fear of problems.
    I only recently bought a Z5.

  • Mosiur Rahman

    few hours earlier I got the update on my XPZ3+. All previous bugs were fixed and battery draining issue resolved. Thanks SONY.

  • Mosiur Rahman

    same here

  • razorg

    http://developer.sonymobile.com/downloads/xperia-open-source-archives/open-source-archive-for-32-2-a-4-3/

    A firmware update for Z5 series has been listed on developer.sonymobile.com website. It’s build number is going to be 32.2.A.4.3, which suggests it’s still a Marshmallow build but moving from …0.305 to …4.3 implies a lot of work was done on it. Can’t wait…

    It is now live for “Telenor Mobil NO” on Z5 Compact!!!

  • Jukka-Pekka Juusela (Peku)

    Updated from .253 to .305, everything else works great, except camera. Every picture looks like it is taken with fisheye lens. Anyone know how to fix this?

  • JJ

    I updated my Z5c a few days ago. I now have ultra stamina mode which I didn’t have before. I’m not experiencing any drop in network connectivity as some have reported but my biggest frustration has returned – the phone is overheating. This was a problem that was fixed two updates ago. I have turned off charging optimization and so far it seems to help. But there are sharp rises in temperature when I’m reading emails and other minor tasks which should never raise the temperature of any phone! Come on Sony! Just when I thought that you guys fixed this problem!

  • Muniek Beavis

    Z5 – when it would be available in Poland??

  • Eideen

    There is still a Bluetooth bugs, where the Bluetooth will stop working and you must restart the Z5 phone.
    Is this a problem you will close soon?

  • Sky

    Z5 series will get it on this month or next month
