  • Emil Oskarsson

  • Manish Sharma

    I got it in India, now my xperia x dual sim is responding faster than android previous version.

  • razorg

    I was seriously hoping people would give up complaining on Z2/Z3 issue by now. It has nothing to do with Sony, guys! Google requires Vulkan and OpenGL 3.1 to be supported by the SoC itself and in addition to this, Qualcomm won’t update the required drivers for S801 SoC. When this is the case, Sony can not do much. And remember, Sony wanted to release 7.0 for Z3 as the last OS upgrade, and they carried out their beta testing on it as well. But it’s not up to Sony at this point… :( HOWEVER, what Sony should do is updating security patches on Marshmallow build for some time from now on. You can get angry on this issue, I agree with this 100%, but Nougat? That’d be a completely different story…

    shit ! is this for real ?

  • Dilipkumar

  • Dilmeet

    Thanks a lot, Manish! Read your comment now and checked for updates. Voila! Downloading 1276.7 MB System Update :D :D

  • Hopefully it will skip the last 6.0.1 patch and go straight to Nougat. I don’t want to wait another month or more to upgrade!!

  • Jozef Cmar
  • Emil Oskarsson

    The update haven’t started rolling in Sweden yet I guess… Hopefully I will get it next week just before Christmas :)

  • Sumit Jhadsaiya

    Curious about Xperia XA nougat update

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Because the software is being developed here :pp

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Where are you from? I’m from Sweden and haven’t received the nougat update for my x performance yet :p

  • Emil Oskarsson

    There’s a lot of people who still blames Sony about leaving them on marshmallow… So many people who don’t know how to use Google to check something out. All they do is complaining and makes Sony look like the bad guy….

  • i hope it fixes the constant overheating issues i honestly hate my z5 premium

  • alaric

    z5 pls ???

  • Saeed

    Please update Xperia Z3 security patch

  • Nidou Xperia™

    please more screenshots about the menu and icons! thank you!

  • jag

    Nice!! Early Christmas present!!

  • Mahesh Kaduskar

    I think sony xperia x dual F5122 is dual sim mobile
    After uploading Android 7.0 dial pad is showing only sim 1calling button not showing 2nd sim call button
    When i use phone for calling is use only 1sim for call
    I can’t use 2 sim

  • Zayed Kotayba

    it used to happen to my phone but after factory rest everything now working again without overheating

  • Da – ve


  • Mateus B. Cassiano

    Google requires Vulkan OR OpenGL ES 3.1, not both (e.g. Nexus 9 is officially supported but doesn’t provide Vulkan API)…

  • Dilipkumar

    Go to call settings and change the settings in MAKE CALLS WITH “ask me first”option

  • it even drains so fast in battery that after 6 hours of the screen off it’s stonedead it drains so fast that the charger can’t even keep up

  • it lags like 80% of the time i absolutely hate it so much that i want to crush it into pieces and i have owned and loved every former xperia device z1 being my favorite

  • Daniel Johanzon

    the question is whether one can be a bit on the info that comes here on the side ?, for the Sony blog says nothing about updating the Xperia X X elle compact …..
    but we must keep our fingers crossed that it gets to Z5 Z5 compakt week.
    if they can promise what they’ve Things T!

  • theskig

    That’s weird, I have the same bug on my Z5 premium dual, sometimes SIM 1 become grey and from dialer you can only select SIM 2.
    In the meantime I tell you a trick to avoid the problem: dial number and start the call with SIM 2 and than close it. After this you can go to “last calls”, tap on the number and here you can select SIM 1 or 2. Hope it works also on your device.

  • theskig

    If it’s like Z5p the setting is correct but sometimes it “disables” the call on SIM 1 from dialer. If you call from “last calls” list or directly from contact you can still select the line.

  • theskig

    Maybe you need to clean the system, I have a Z5p since 11 months and no lag or overheating problems, only in summer you can feel the back hot when doing heavy operations but without slowing the system.

  • z2049

    it should be one or two problematic apps causing the lag and heating. At least on my Z5P everything is fine after 11 months’ usage. Try a factory reset should help as I think

  • Ron Lufias
  • Chandrasekhar Savalam

    hi friend,it’s not the software bug, plz change the options in settings->dual sim->preferred SIM for-> calls-> ask for? or sim1 or sim 2 .

  • Dilipkumar

    What are the new things in Xperia X nougat

  • mrhangover Rox

    lol, you thought the nexus 9 same as sony? sony use pure android?

  • Daniel Johanzon

    From many parts of the world, it is reported that the Xperia X and Xperia X Compact now has system updates to Nougat. Among other things, Latin America, Russia and Australia seem to have received the update, but yet we have not seen it in Sweden.

    but is there anyone in Sverig who have received the update to the XZ xperformance.
    What the hell is really happening with the Swedish update !!!

  • Probably XA and XA Ultra

  • Probably XA and XA Ultra…

  • Michael Adu-Yeboah

    We the Z5ers wish to have before Christmas eve. that will be wonderful

  • Tobias Hedlund

    Jadu Daniel. I intervjun som gjorde med Sony Mobile så säger deras talesman att dom testar Android 7.0 extra mycket för att se till att den är så stabil som möjligt innan den släpps i våra nordiska länder. Och det är något som uppskattas enligt mig.

  • Dilipkumar

    Hello everyone, latest announcement from Android.

    Android going to skip 7.0 nd directly jumping to 7.1.1. Z3 MOBILE INCLUDED FOR NOUGAT
    Check out through this link

  • razorg

    No offense, man, but NEVER EVER EVER trust the websites of this sort. They’re rarely accurate. We should only take Sony’s own official announcements into consideration…

  • Actman

    Any X Compact users here? Seriously, no displeased; well did anyone got the update yet? I can’t even find any reliable source regarding the X Compact’s Nougat update other than a simple article that can easily found around the web. Well is there any screenshots or lucky enough – a video?

  • Mateus B. Cassiano

    Regardless of the OEM, regardless of whether the device uses pure Android or not, the device must pass the CTS to ship with Google Play Services and its apps, no exceptions. CTS changed in Nougat to require either OpenGL ES 3.1 or Vulkan, Qualcomm won’t support any in Snapdragon 801, so no “official” Nougat for devices using this SoC (like Xperia Z3). My point in listing Nexus 9 is that it only got OpenGL ES 3.1 but still passed in the CTS, contrary to razorg claiming a device must support both to pass the CTS.

  • Jerry Berglund

    You maybe been reading the news lately why Sony hasnt released the update yet in Sweden and Scandinavia? Well its because we got the Beta tryouts. Sweden had the chans to polish the update, so thats why we have to wait for the real official update. Ok, I can think thats an ok deal, but I never tried the beta version. :-(

  • Emil Oskarsson

    According to Sonymobile SE the update has started to roll in Sweden aswell :p

  • It is there. I checked with Xperifirm in Flashtool. Only for few countries, though.

  • Jerry Berglund

    That’s strange because according to Pr Rikard Skogberg it haven’t but will be?

  • Francesco

    Updated this morning in Italy, looks really fast and smooth! I like the new notification style design even tough they look a little more confusing… but maybe I just need to get used to it.
    Cannot say anything about battery live couse I had a different day than “normal use”.
    Only bug that i found it after closing the multi-windows: the status bar doesn’t change color back to black and remains with the color of the last app used on the top part…

  • Moisés

    Apteligent says that XZ is the most used android smartphone launched in this second semester.
    They do not consider iPhone nor other phones from last semester.

    Ahead of Google Pixel and Lenovo Moto Z

  • Emil Oskarsson

    I talked to someone called Emir :p

  • Jaissal S

    I’m sure that we’ll get the update in January or early February. Once they’ve sorted the update out for the 810 processor. Right?

  • Jerry Berglund

    Ok there was an Emir that wrote the same as Rikard in Swedroid Sony Xperia X compact forum thread that its not released yet but will be before this year is ended.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Maybe about the x compact, but I have the x performance which received the update in the end of November :p

  • Daniel Johanzon

    security update in November.
    The I got to my Z5 compact. but now I’m just waiting android update SONY IS VERY BAD FOR MAKING OUT!
    which model do you have?

  • udalricus
  • Tomasz Lewandowski

    Poland is available!

  • Daniel Johanzon

    founded then maybe they are heading in the north … :)
    but the Xperia X compact has been born, but it does not make any in the north who have given to the Xperia XZ in nordden

  • Michał Kamizielak

    does the update include manual settings from Xperia XZ (e.g. shutter speed 1 second)? Did the camera app get any update?

  • Tomasz Lewandowski

    Yes, manual settings include shutter speed (min is 1s check it) :)
    Soft is very smooth. I recomend.

  • Emil Oskarsson
  • Jerry Berglund


  • Shamoy Rahman

    You can download it manually from XperiFirm right now.

  • Emil Oskarsson
  • Shamoy Rahman

    Awesome, that theme you’re using, its very beautiful, what’s it called?

  • Emil Oskarsson

    actually i grew tired of it by now so changed back to original white, but i will send you a link to this theme made by someone called Guetto:

  • Shamoy Rahman

    Ah, what I like about it the most is the blue chrome color in the settings menu. Really has a feeling similar to this.

  • M T M

    Nothing available in UK Yet

  • M T M

    Can anyone let me know if he got update here in UK Please.
    Many Thanks

  • I got the update this morning. UK edition.

  • M T M

    On which network or sim free?

  • the one I have is US X Compact but flashed Customized UK firmware, which means sim-free one

  • Vurtego

    I’ve upgraded my X Compact to Nougat. Initial impressions:

    1. MUCH faster and smoother than before
    2. All my weird Bluetooth pairing issues from Android 6 days have been resolved
    3. Camera launches faster via camera button now
    4. Camera now has awesome feature where, after launching via the camera button, it will immediately either take a picture or start recording a video (your choice in settings)

    The phone that I loved before has now become absolutely perfect. Sony, I’m so happy!!!!
