    Well thank god for this as the SD card was a hit or miss following MM.

  • Stefan Marić

    Pretty sly update. Phone runs smoother and it seems like battery is batter as well.

    How can someone seriously use that theme in the left screenshot

    What a good news for Xperia M5 users as poorly the Z5 series still sustaining the August Security Patches! What a great support from SONY!

  • Ricardo López Suárez

    Does anyone knows why there’s no 6.0.1 on the M5 ? And the M4 does has it :(

  • Mateus B. Cassiano

    It’s probably related to the Mediatek SoC. Xperia XA, XA Ultra, C4 and C5 uses Mediatek SoCs as well and are all on 6.0 instead of 6.0.1 AFAIK…

  • Ricardo López Suárez

    Thanks for the answer, That’s too bad, some emoticons of 6.0.1 aren’t present on 6.0, my girlfriend changed phones and we noticed that :P

  • Prakash Joshi

    You are Right Gambi, It’s very bad

  • Khillo81

  • Junior Rider

    Well, bad to ours but a certain beauty to the owner.

    SD Card fix for Xperia M5 not doing anything good. Still experiencing problems. The phone says SD card corrupted but the card works well on other phones that run same Android 6 that can format it. The problem is SONY, please fix it…
