    Some of these “new” features have already been part of Xperia X software since release

  • Oh yeah!.. And Xperia X compact.

  • And what about root at locked bootloader?..

  • raju

    Send screen shot on settings menu

  • raju

    System ui tuner??

  • Hideg Jenő Péter

    Direct boot? I never heard before it
    But please explain.

  • Max Danger

    This was available in Marshmallow, swipe down to quick settings and press and hold on the settings icon – it will start to spin. Let go and it will take you to the UI Tuner. Repeat the process to remove the tuner

  • KzX

    Wait a minute!
    Seamless update!?
    I thought it only available for Pixels.

  • KzX

    How about never?

  • Stephen

    I think Google wanted a lot more people to believe that.

  • Ming William Lee

    Isn’t the seamless update only for phones shipped with Android N?
    Apart from that, where is Daydream?

  • Rebeccabbowling

    Google is paying 97$ per hour! Work for few hours and have longer with friends & family! !mj397d:
    On tuesday I got a great new Land Rover Range Rover from having earned $8752 this last four weeks.. Its the most-financialy rewarding I’ve had.. It sounds unbelievable but you wont forgive yourself if you don’t check it

  • Of course I do not want this! Otherwise I would not ask.

  • But are new to Z5 series :)

  • Stergios Papoutsoglou

    to those who updated already, is there an option for blacklisting callers out not?

  • raju

    Ui tuner means what?

  • Max Danger
  • raju

    Thank you

  • Zayed Kotayba

    They changed the name Daydream in 7.0 to something else I think because the new Daydream VR Headset or something!

  • Zayed Kotayba
  • Ming William Lee

    Humm… actually I was referring to Daydream(official trademark of Google) instead of that screen sleeping thing (called daydreaming)…
    However that’s a shame as other manufacturers ( Moto, LG etc.) added there phones to Daydream ready after N update but Sony simply didn’t…

  • Moisés

    I am not sure, maybe Smart Lock is part of android N now.

  • Moisés

    Sony can use VR on Play Station. VR for cellphone may be not important to them.
    Xperia are built for smart, easy and nice ecperience. They are great to use when you watch movies, listen to music.

  • Ming William Lee

    Well, only if you can have PS4 on the go…

  • Moisés

    When you turn off your cellphone or restart you may see a blue screen and message STARTING ANDROID 1 OF 100 APPS, if you have 100 apps .
    Now if you update you will never see again that screen you see android and its belly open.
    Update is now just like on computer.

    Or you can add your face to quick unlock, if your GPS is on you can use that location to unlock the phone without a pin or pattern.

  • fried_egg

    my Z5 wants this more than a 6yr old waiting for xmas….

  • Shehab Skull

    +1 .. can’t wait *_* just hoping we will get the full xperia x ui <3

  • mUSICA
  • Zayed Kotayba

    OK……My bad,Also it’s shame that they didn’t include it with the 7.0 update ;-/

  • Ming William Lee

    As they gave manual mode a go, why not RAW next time?

  • Joonwoo Park

    I’m not sure they are identical.. Smart Lock has been in Android since Lollipop, hans’t it? No need to state it on Nougat update..

    do you want raw format in your camera to get more details and more quality in your pictures?
    write here (replay) that you want raw format too http://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Software-Updates/Camera2-API/m-p/974742/highlight/true#S21705

  • insyt

    The Stamina mode looks positive. Has Sony added in the 3 different levels to bring it on par with the old Stamina mode or are these default Android options. Also does anyone know what Device Performance Preferred does?

  • Dilipkumar

    Wat will be the new features in xperia z5??
    UI change
    New themes
    New camera UI
    Stamina mode

    Can any one please share if u knw??

  • azzido

    Sa basically instead of just few new features provided by google there are no any updates from Sony directly???

    Hence Sony did just almost plain copy paste of stock Android without putting any effort to improve the features and the system… To be honest there are not many new features, just a multi window and new messaging, that’s it, rest was already in XZ

  • azzido

    This only shows with each iteration Android has less and less new features / options to offer (there are just small cosmetic updates here and there) + almost nothing changed by the Sony itself. It should be rather called as Android 6.0.2 :/

    Well Sony said they improved camera, I would like to see if this is the truth.
    Sadly they did not touch the camera quality / speed.

  • Surya Vamsi

    When will it release for Xperia Z5???

  • Do you think that will Z5/Z3+ get with update manual shutter speed and focus?

  • Musharab

    Surya Bhai ….Keep Waiting. Our Z5 Series has been Dumped into Darkness, I think another one month will pass before Z5 sees Light of Nougat.

  • Musharab

    Me too Waiting….!!

  • Jake

    I personally am not waiting. I use Arrow Launcher and Next Lock Screen. This means I will not see many UI improvements. Also, I doubt Z5 will see Nougat this year.

  • Jake

    This is the conclusion I came to after watching the official Sony video. If you are like me and use Arrow Launcher as well as Next Lock Screen, you will never even notice the new features.

  • hmmm

    Will you ever be able to write a phone nr on the phone while you are talking and call that nr after ending the call????keep missing this option that symbian had it so long ago?

  • (NinJer)

    Still don’t have the update on my HongKong XZ Dual…

  • Nice features are waiting for us …

  • Moisés

    3 modes..

    One regular like old stamina
    One simple, no loss of performance. For those ones who like to play games.
    One more agressive mode.

  • LazAndKor

    Pretty sure the Z5 will. It has the same Camera sensor as the X performance and the XZ, not sure about the Z3+, but hopefully both get it,along with predictive autofocus.

  • On Sony Page, they wrote that Xz,x,x performance and XC will get manual shutter and focus… But Z5/Z3+ are flagship phones, they MUST GET these features.

  • LazAndKor

    The C4, C5 and M5 got the predictive Autofocus. Let’s hope we get it,and the other features as well.

  • marcyff2

    you are going to use VR on the go. Sounds like a recipe for disaster

  • Ming William Lee

    Well at least its mobility is unquestionable… Compared to PS4 at least… Though I personally don’t think VR is something that practical or revolutionary, at least for now.

  • Don_Alduck

    Question for those running 7.0.

    Do you have a blue light filter? (Or maybe I’m wrong and that is only available (baked-in) in 7.1?)
    PS: I’m using twilight, but the screen overlay issue is sometimes annoying in some certain apps.

  • Geese Howard

    Christmas is coming Sony, so you know… my Z5P has been a very, very good girl :)

  • Niclas Fagerholm

    Xperia x performance here, finally got the update! Wow, my deadly complaint seems to have been fixed. The blue edge on low light photos has been fixed it seems so far. Needs more confirmation of course, but so far im really happy. Im not using any sony app in this video though :)

    This is a photo from Xperia X Performance Nougat, backlight is just a tv screen in the middle of the night.

  • Samed

    WTF? Who is still using MMS? What an unusual feature…

  • Samed
  • SonyMan

    I think Daydream VR support is a feature that comes with android version 7.1 not 7.0…but not sure at all.
