Sony Mobile has commenced its Android 7.0 Nougat rollout for the Xperia Z5 series with build number 32.3.A.0.372, just a few days after the firmware was certified. The new update is currently live across select variants of the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Premium as of writing, but we expect it will shortly arrive on the Xperia Z5 Compact, Xperia Z3+ and Xperia Z4 Tablet.

The new firmware version brings support for native Nougat features such as multi-windows and Sony is promising longer battery life, something that Z5 owners will be welcoming. Other additions include the addition of a self-timer button for the front camera and the latest Xperia Home launcher with Google Now integration. If you have updated your handset, please share some impressions and pictures in the comments below. We will stick up FTF firmware links shortly.

  • Butch Sales Esmero

    omg ahahaha

  • Butch Sales Esmero

    updating it now :)

  • Carls Alvin

    Z5Compact owners! report updates! now!

  • Do you know if it’s an OTA Update?
    Haven’t been notified on my E6603

  • Nabeel Ahmad

    Which region u reveiving update?

  • Joonwoo Park

    waiting for Z5C updates :(

  • FYLegend21

    Not in Taiwan yet…

  • Deki

    Still nothing in Macedonia…

    Does the camera have better performance and manual focus? Share some screenshots.

  • XperiaBlog

    It doesn’t look like it has hit that variant yet, but yes, people are receiving the update OTA.

  • theskig

    My PC Companion can’t connect to server since some weeks. On 2 different PC’s, no firewall but same error.

  • Shehab Skull

    YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • Shehab Skull
  • Shehab Skull
  • So no manual controls on camera? :(

  • Zayed Kotayba

    I hope that’s not the case we waited too long :(

  • Fotbollsgräs

    If you have an unlocked bootloader you are going to have to flash the updates in yourself. Go have a look at Sony’s flashtool Emma.

  • Troy Boateng-Agyemang

    Still no sign of any update for me z5 E6653 UK customised

  • theskig

    I know but I still have locked BL.

  • Kasen Naidu

    WHEN WILL WE GET IT IN SOUTH AFRICA

  • Tochi Nwodu

    OTA received @ 1297-9114 R8C

  • Fotbollsgräs

    Aha. Well, considering the trouble it might be easier to just unlock it and flash it in yourself when it pops up in Emma. First thing I do with a new phone is always unlocking the bootloader. It’s a good thing. :)

  • According to Xpericheck, E6653 didn’t received anything. Only Premium and Dual variants of Premium and Z5

  • @kasennaidu:disqus Use Flashtool. I flashed the generic international firmware onto my Z3 and found that it performs SIGNIFICANTLY better than the old outdated one that Vodacom provides.

    Flashtool homepage:
    ht tp:/ /www DOT flashtool DOT net/index.php

    Example on how to use Flashtool:
    ht tp:/ /www DOT xperiablog DOT net/2016/03/12/install-xperia-marshmallow-using-flashtool-and-xperifirm-guide/

  • Try to use the new Sony software

  • Zayed Kotayba

    BTW did anyone tried using Xperia PC Companion???

  • No OTA yet here in Indonesia, but you can update via Xperia Companion.

  • theskig

    I can do that with flashtool but I don’t want to erase the system, so I will just wait for notification :)

  • Shehab Skull

    I think we will get it <3 will report soon

  • Daniel Craig

    I’m also the same, E6653 Vodafone UK. haven’t received anything.

  • Dilipkumar

    yes it works

  • Dilipkumar

    yes

  • Troy Boateng-Agyemang

    Yeah true i just checked

  • theskig

    It worked! Thanks for the tip! (but still no update on my Z5 Premium Dual E6883)

  • Dilipkumar

    Ll post screenshots wait

  • vasanth

    z5c yet to get

  • Now it’s just a matter of time. Your welcome :-)

  • LocalPatriot

    Ohh only for z5 family… And the same hw has z3plus wait a month for the update… Fuck sony

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo
  • Butch Sales Esmero

    asia… philippines

  • Butch Sales Esmero

    just remember to update your pc companion, which btw its xperia companion now… No OTA at this moment… its a manual update

  • Dilipkumar

    wait for screenshots

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    so, what about manual controls for the camera?

  • theskig

    I had the old version (PC Companion) and it doesn’t connect to server.
    It doesn’t say “you need to update PC companion” or “please download the new software”, only “cannot connect to server”. That’s really stupid.

  • Actman

    WTF No XZ’s UI and Lock Screen?

  • Of course not. They need to maintain exclusively of the new line. You can always get the official icons and use them

  • I think no. But in 3rd apps could be supported.

  • Eric Ho

    downloading via xperia companion
    E6683

  • Dilipkumar

    Hey guys !!!!
    Homescreen UI is completely different. Very smarter

  • Actman

    Oh yea? Then why did those previous Z series got the latest UI from Z5 on MM update?

  • deekbee

    I’m on a Z5C, VF UK. Xpericheck shows an update from yesterday : 32.2.A.5.11-R10C

    For a VF UK Z5, xpericheck is showing 32.2.A.5.11-R11C

    Slightly different version, but neither is going to be Nougat.

  • razorg

    Please send a screenshot.

  • iArvee

    Nougat now available for Xperia Z5C!! Customized AU! Just checked it. Now downloading https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/810127dc2626135325aff9f6ab28967a22b865141b136f53016c89685f04b98a.jpg

  • Dilipkumar
  • Dion

    can you apply a x series theme and tell me if the lockscreen clock gets transparent?

  • Tochi Nwodu

    The lock screen still the old one SONYYYYY
    If thats the case this update is only a compensation
    Rubbish

  • Brandon LeGendre

    Im kinda out of the loop, what are those numbers?

  • joseph carmine nero

    Z series,X series, the difference is there mate

  • KIMI

    My body is ready

  • Tochi Nwodu

    Forget about the difference
    The x series already have the boot animation
    When apple updates do dey skip the lock screens?

  • iArvee

    It’s out for Z5c. check xperifirm :)

  • Tochi Nwodu

    Screen shot please

  • Dilipkumar

    Pros:
    Performance awesome. All apps take less time for execution. .
    New Notification bar.
    New smarter home screen.
    Multi window support.
    Self timer not needed but they considered as a good feature.
    New Stamina mode.
    Advanced video player TV side view.
    Call log interface changes.

    Cons:
    No manual focus.
    No xperia X UI.
    No new themes.
    Less changes.

  • Tochi Nwodu

    Forget about samsung and HTC
    They are stingy when it comes to updates

  • Dilipkumar

    Ya i posted. Check it out

  • zemetal

    any feedback on camera? :D

  • Furkan Ege

    Custominization number

  • Ates

    What about new contacts menu like on xz? Is it the same…please screen!

  • Dion

    damn assholes they left us with a boring ui

  • Tochi Nwodu

    Some of what u mentioned is on my Xperia xa on 6.0

  • Brandon LeGendre

    Thanks well no update for mine as yet tw customized 1298- 8309R7C

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    Care only about sound volume in earphones and speakers, is it loud as in 5.1.1?

  • Tochi Nwodu

    The Xperia z5 on 7.0 looks like 6.0 ill call this update tweaks
    Imagine what the home screen looks like
    Almost identical like when I got my z5 a year ago

  • Tochi Nwodu

    Exactlyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy then I wouldn’t feel too disappointed

  • Carls Alvin

    When, where? its true?

  • Dave Wongillies
  • Tochi Nwodu

    Holding the Xperia xa and Xperia z5 both on Android 6
    Xperia xa feels more solid(a budget phone) than d z5
    Instead of a better compensation of a better nougat
    They gave us a tweeked 7.0
    I just hope u can swipe between selfie and back camera

  • Brandon LeGendre

    You and me both are waiting patiently

  • Tochi Nwodu

    U can say that again

  • Carls Alvin

    ohhh yeah , I saw it! YAS!!!

  • Actman

    Previously I did mocked SAMMY concerning the same and bored UI they got on each MAJOR UPDATES! That’s why it was named such as “SAME-SUNG OR SHAME-SUNG by netizens out there. Now it looks like SONY turns to snatch the crown from them. I mean we waited for so long just hoping to see the UI; Transparent Lock Screen to bright up the day (from 32.2.A.0.305 to .511) but it disappoints us each and every time. I totally understand that if SONY prefers to skip those SMART CLEANER or BATTERY CARE goodies from XZ to Z5’s family. But isn’t it too hard for them to dedicate just those beautiful LOCK SCREEN and NEW UI for Z5 family users out there? I’m disappointed with this update seriously!

  • Dion

    they took so long for this bullshit pure disappointment

  • Dilipkumar

    yes
    highly disappointed

  • Just enable the location history in your phone…

  • alishayzadag
  • Shehab Skull

    NO manual controls
    NO transparent clock on lockscreen
    NO smart claener
    Small apps are still here

  • alishayzadag

    Disappointing.

  • Tochi Nwodu

    Small apps remains…? Beautiful
    Use that 90% anytime I touch my phone

  • Ilya Panasenko

    Xpericheck shows that new FW available for Z5 Compact for some regions, including mine, but I don’t see update yet https://xpericheck.com/device/E5823

  • Because they’re rubbish. Thank god this is closer to aosp then expected.

  • Tochi Nwodu

    Completely

  • Troy Boateng-Agyemang

    I agree with you. I was thinking we’d be given the X features as well

  • Shehab Skull
  • alishayzadag

    Yes, despite what people say.

  • David Commins

    AWESOME SONY!

  • Eric Ho

    And I things I noticed change is the speed of the fingerprint unlock

  • Tochi Nwodu

    Please confirm
    When stamina is activated
    Is the transition present? I mean animation in opening apps

  • The update is only based on Google nougat and new Sony features.

  • Actman

    NO transparent clock on lockscreen > this is the major reason why this update is totally SUCKXXXXXX!

  • And you get new features like stamina levels but a company need to create some differences between the lines. As much I’d love to have them….

  • Shehab Skull

    u have 3 levels of STAMINA .. in the moment I am using ” Device performance preferred ” which allow me to use my phone with animations and every thing but with a lower performance .. u will not feel any lag or anything just normal ! ( like the original STAMINA mode in JB / KK / LP )

  • Tochi Nwodu

    Wow thank you for the information

  • theskig

    After the update do you still have “1” and “2” SIM label on the status bar?

  • Shehab Skull

    no

  • theskig

    Oh, this is a wonderful news!

  • Ates

    please what about new contacts and call log is it same as on XZ

  • Battery care is based on QNovo and that should be something exclusively of the new line. I really just wanted manual controls

  • Actman

    Since this shit disappoints me. NO MORE XPERIA from me! From XPERIA V – Z – Z ULTRA – ZR – Z1 – Z3C – Z5C – Z5 DUAL and finally X Compact. And I can proudly announce that XC would be my last device from SONY. If there is someone or any staff from SONY who thinks that I’m bullshitting or it’s just my falsification, well just drop me a PM for warranty verification. It’s all under my name. You just pissed me off SONY!!!!

  • Ron

    Still no OTA update in Singapore, and no new update in Xperia Companion. Need help on how to trigger the update!

  • Abrar Zahin Shahriar

    What about Vulkan?

  • fried_egg

    Time to do a quick back up via xperia companion…. because EE have been quite fast at rolling out their edition of firmware for the Z5…. and that’s done… so, bring it !

  • Garam Tamas

    try using the desktop app (xperia companion), it’s available thru that already for z5c, but nothing via ota

  • Garam Tamas

    My Z5C is downloading it right now. OTA will be probably available in the coming days, but it’s already there via Xperia Companion.

  • Actman

  • razorg

    So still there’s is no Manual control option in the camera? I’m f.cking pissed off. When my contact with Z5C ends, I’ll be going to Samsung or Nokia, hell even to Apple….

  • Actman

    You got my vote razorg. For years I’ve been supporting SONY and shit they gave me in returns.

  • joe

    the xperia companion is downloading the update for my Z5C

  • Brandon LeGendre

    They would never gave us outdated Sony fans the latest and greatest because it would hinder sales of their new products, think about it, if we have the same software features as the xz, would we upgrade to it, no we won’t, and for that reason I respect apple, no matter how old it gets the same update

  • joe

    switch to Xperia companion this happen to me the Pc companion can’t connect to server but xperia companion can download it from sony

  • Joonwoo Park

    Yay!!!! Australian firmware is the first rolled out, as expected.

  • Midleo
  • razorg

    Dude, X and X Performance got the Manual controls from XZ with their repsective 7.0 updates. And camera-wise, X and X Performance ARE exactly the SAME as our Z5 (same IMX300 sensor and same G Lens), except the camera algorithm running in the background! So if X and X Perf deserved to get those manual controls, we did too! We’re not asking them to “magically” add the laser autofocus and RGB sensor to our Z5 series, we just want the camera software to become better as we were told it was when we bought Z5 (which in reality, it never was as GOOD as they said!)…

  • Brandon LeGendre

    I know its the same, but the marketing goal is to upgrade to a newer phone, I want the same things you want in the end

  • alishayzadag

    For me the new battery icon and no more sim label is enough to update.

  • Stuart Gardoll

    Well I’m pretty impressed. Have updated my Z5 and the phone feels snappier already. Apps load quicker and overall everything just feels smoother.

    Nice work, Sony. Keep up the good work!

  • iArvee

    Too many people with high expectations. If you want the XZ/X UI, flash the system UI mod. If you want manual controls, flash a camera mod. Simple.

  • Tochi Nwodu

    We need it official dont u get the drift?

  • Stuart Gardoll

    Are you sure you’re in Android 7. Small apps gone on my z5

  • Joonwoo Park

    wait a month more. UK version will come after a month, you’ll see if you track past updates…

  • razorg

    But you know what, most of the Sony users now actually bought a Sony because of Sony’s reputation for properly supporting older flagships. Remember the original Z? It got all the features and updates until 5.1.1 even after it’s supposed “end-of-life” date, where all its counterparts (Galaxy S4 etc) stayed at a measly 5.0.1. This is the reason I bought my Z5C, thinking that Sony’d keep properly supporting us, at least before eol. But look at this, even before our eol date, Sony’s not giving a sh.t about us. If I wanted this treatment I’d have stayed with Samsung…..

  • alishayzadag

    For people who are disappointed because lock screen UI hasn’t changed. Keep calm & wait for 7.1. You’ll get it there, hopefully. Xperia Z didn’t have themes and the new UI like us but later with more updates, we got them.

  • AllanKafka

    Could you please point me to a port of the Xperia XZ Camera app for Z5 and below on xda? I can’t find anything :(

  • Luís Alberto Pérez

    OK. But when you update an old Iphone with new software the phone gets worst, not better. So Apple makes you buy a new phone because the old one it’s crap after the update. I’m not a Apple hater. Two friends that use Apple told me that this happened with their phones.

  • Brandon LeGendre

    True, but for whatever reason they saw it fit not to give those features

  • PoweredBySony

    Already got the manual controls on the z5 https://youtu.be/UQjl-qamO9g no need to get them from sony lol and the xd interface https://youtu.be/OXKO1OJphkw

  • Brandon LeGendre

    Ohh well I never bought an apple product, mostly sony’s

  • Venkatasurya Prakash

    Wht about the xperia z3+..??

  • Dion

    Im not impressed by their move and I will consider looking for another phone this time because thats straight shit they left the z5 out on everything no concept software no huge changes nothing same shit over and over everyone had their hopes to get something new on their z5 with this update but nah guess not 7.0 with little sony crap on top

  • Dion

    Exactly apple gives older phones a refined look and still everyone buys iphones so if sony thinks that will make their sales higher guess not

  • Carls Alvin

    Where is this?

  • Carls Alvin

    Where

  • alishayzadag

    Looks beautiful. I love the new UI. And @tochinwodu:disqus was talking about the small apps. He uses them 90pc of the time when he uses his phone.

  • Garam Tamas

    in the xperia companion desktop app..

  • Dion

    sony got lazy and greedy

  • razorg

    I can understand the reason why they haven’t added much to their devices in terms of hardware, because they’ve been financially struggling, so keeping development-research costs low is required by doing less development-research obviously. But obtaining customers by mesmerising people with raw hardware specs is one side, keeping people’s love and trust (so they will consider going to another Sony when it’s time) is the other side of the coin. If the latter is lost, people will look sceptical at Sony phones when they are looking for an update because they’ll know some time in the near future Sony will drop them for no obvious reason…

  • Midleo

    Ukraine, but i was on custom Xpower 5, now after flashing back to stock 305 (to have possibility to flash the update, cause from custom when u want to update over OTA you will get error), there is no notification about update, so i think the update apps thought i have Z5…. waiting

  • Bryan Grobmann

    maybe next week. i hope.

  • Damian Ismael Bahamondes Valen

    if you want manual controls, buy a camera. Simply xD

  • Venkatasurya Prakash

    How can u say thtt..??

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    Вітаю

  • smarter home screen?

  • Ziggy

    Shame that Z3 will not get it… :(

  • Midleo

    But if u have Xperifirm, u can download right to the PC the Australian and RU/UA/KZ/BY versions… and flash via lovely Flashtool

  • Moisés

    Z3+ uses same firmware of z5. You can check it on pc companion if it is available or do download file to do it yourself instead of waiting for OTA .

  • Damian Ismael Bahamondes Valen

    install the new OS Version manually. (Xperiafirm or xperia companion)

  • Moisés

    Samsung lets you change WB, EV and turn on HDR.
    You can do it all, but on 8 mp only

  • Damian Ismael Bahamondes Valen

    no manual controls.

  • Kippel

    6603 still waiting.

  • Moisés

    Z3+ needs too…

    The most hated Xperia by tech websites..
    Z3+ is the best looking Xperia ever ( among z5 premium chrome).
    As powerful as z5.
    Better cam than z3…
    Loudest speaker of Z family.

    I want to use all controls on 20.7, not 8

  • Uqix
  • Amir H. Navidfar

    There’s no update for me :( my xperia is z5 premium.

  • Khillo81

    And anyway, who said that old Apple hardware gets all the new features? I have an iPad 4 and didn’t even get Nightshift when it was introduced. Split screen is also not available. So yes, you get iOS10 but not with all the goodies.

  • Khillo81

    That’s simply not true about Apple. You get the new OS but not all the features as the latest hardware.

  • Khillo81

    Me too. Was really sure they would remove them with Nougat. So happy they didn’t. Now eagerly awaiting the update on my Z5C! I don’t care about the lock screen as long as the phone is functional.

  • Борис Михаилов

    No manual controls, but probably better overall performance because of the updated libs.
    And when it comes to updates, depends which customization version you are on. If on the T-Mobile version, you’ll probably get it in a month or so with a few of their tweaks.

  • Venkatasurya Prakash

    Frm where i can get the z3+ file..??

  • Deki

    No, global LTE… not t-mobile…

  • Moisés

    I believe you can use the file made for z5..
    Firmware always have same code number.
    Just check if it is for single or dual.
    Same SoC, same firmware…

    Z/z1
    Z2/z3
    Z4/z5
    X Perf / XZ
    X / X Comp
    Xa / xa ultra

  • LazAndKor

    Do we get the X icons? And what version Is Xperia Home?

  • theskig

    I agree with you :)

  • Objectif

    I think yes. So you can find a ported version whith work well on xda.

  • AllanKafka

    Thank you very much. :) That’s it! I need to root and try it someday.

  • Zayed Kotayba

    Well they are just lazy it’s not about exclusivity because let’s be honest and I wish if there is some SONY employees who see this comment LoL.
    No one is buying SONY products!! for me I only had SONY products since Sony Ericsson and I always see people asking me why do you buy SONY phones they are not that good and my answer will be always I like their products but SONY is keep pissing us (Loyal Fans) by doing this BTW if SONY put the manual control option in the camera and added all of the X series features like that would make all people buy Z5 series instead of buying XZ LoL, it’s not going to happen because 99% of peoples don’t even care to know the differences between them.

  • Bashar Shehab

    They are using new drivers.

  • Bashar Shehab

    No one cares, not even Sony.

  • Nebojša

    They really fucked up with this. Im waited Nougat only because of transparent lock screen. Seems like i will wait for root on Marshmallow!

  • christere

    Yeah like that would be the important thing. Too many cry-babies in this thread.

  • Bashar Shehab

    Probably tomorrow, z5 and Z3+ updates were certified at the same time.

  • Nebojša

    Fuck this update man. Nougat without transparent Lock screen on Z5/Z3+? Fuck that, Sony really dissapoint me!

  • Nebojša

    Totally agree with you!

  • azzido

    Agree completely, gui updatez shoul be implemented as welll.

  • Ates

    Please..what about sound is it louder…incoming call, music…?

  • azzido

    If you have small apps why it was wiped out from XZ??? Sony we want it BACK!!!!!!!

    I knew you’re all disappointed by the fact that Sony didn’t give us Z5 users, X Lockscreen and manual camera controls. but if we look on the bright side, Samsung and HTC users still don’t know how Nougat tastes. So hats off to Sony for at least giving us the damn update.

  • Ilya Panasenko

    already got it. feels really smooth so far

  • Daniel Craig

    Mate, Vodafone is rubbish on providing updates, I got the notification for 32.2.A.5.11 yesterday. that update was released more than a month ago for non-carrier Z5’s and I get it now. Imagine when we’ll get Nougat!

  • No. You can turn on HDR and wb with 23mp

  • Next > Next > Next > Loading ^_^

  • So no manual controls in the camera, and no at least some parts of the UI from X series.

  • LocalPatriot

    Where can I download the new xz icons?

  • Don_Alduck

    No update for me on my unlocked Z5, UK :( I checked it on phone and PC…Guess i’ll get it in like 3 weeks… That’s what they do all the time…

  • Zaki

    anyone notice that the flashlight bug it’s fixed now?! (z5c here)
    it’s quite neat
    still hope sony will bring all goodies from the x series
    theme (transparent clock on lock screen)
    manual control
    etc

    and what the heck my status bar not transparent ( ps theme , at default theme they transparent)

    anyone??

  • rus_media

    Why the hell same starting animation? And I thought lock screen will be like Xperia X. :(

  • Vlad

    Use apkmirror.com to download the latest versions for Xperia apps

  • B.O.A The Brotherhood of Enter

    They did bro??, I get Nougat features AND keep my small apps? YES! YES! YES!

  • LazAndKor

    Shame that they aren’t stock.. The M5,C4 and C5 all have the X icons as stock….

  • Geese Howard

    Dude you would call somebody rubbish because of one lock screen?! You have some serious issues buddy :/

  • Shehab Skull

    I posted a clear question on there official forum .. come and support me guys to get attention from them !

  • Daniel Craig

    Moises will you shut the hell up you idiot? No you can’t flash other phones firmware even if they carry the same build number, he’s gonna end up bricking his device.

  • Black android

    Finally someone with brain…

  • Dilipkumar

    What theme ur using
    Send me link to download

  • Moisés

    Why not? If the number is the same, same hardware.. All updates they release for z5 come to z3+ too.
    That is why 2 flagships yearly with same SoC. To update together.

    Was all this roughness necessary?

  • rus_media

    Amazon Shopping added after updated to Nougat.

  • Butch Sales Esmero
  • Daniel Craig

    No, You fail to realise that the Xperia Z5 and Z3+ have different camera hardware, different battery. Do you realise that Xperia Z and Z1 have different chipsets and camera. Trust me dude if you flash a XZ ROM to X Performance even though the devices are very similar it will brick it. Oh I forgot, flash a Dual SIM Z5 ROM To a Single SIM, it will still brick. Clearly you don’t have any experience about flashing and stuff. Sorry for cursing but you’re gonna make someone ruin their phone therefore costing them money.

  • Kasen Naidu

    Thank you… Will try that

  • Alvin

    I’m not even a Z5, nor 2015 or 2016 Xperia user, but I’m very disappointed with this update, just because Sony is pushing updates months earlier from other manufacturers, doesn’t mean that they should bring Samsung-like little changes, I mean old Xperias looks newer and newer as they jump to a newer version of Android (like my 2014 Z3, looks like a 2015 Z5 after being updated to MM). But Z5 users didn’t get those other greatness of X series that many people want.

    Yes, users should be grateful but I’m just disappointed to see Sony becoming more like Samsung here.

  • Tomislav Matić

    You are so wrong about Z/Z1. This is correct
    Z Ultra/Z1
    Z2/Z3
    Z4/Z3+/Z5
    X Performance/XZ

  • rus_media

    This update has X icons. Those I have separate version of the same icons.

  • tchalikias

    Is there a color calibration setting in the System UI menu? Is the display white balance setting still software-based (i.e. using color overlays), or does it take advantage of Nougat’s hardware level color calibration control?

  • Aldi Wan Kenobi

    Awesome! I got the notification in my Z5Compact today and going to install it soon. Sony is fast today, usually, I would get it one or two weeks after it is announced!

  • Jose Antonio Almeida Madrazo

    Still waiting here too!

  • Michael Adu-Yeboah

    Exactly,,been with sony since k750i days ….yep…let Snapdragon 820 be exclusive to XZ and the chassis but not the software…

  • Michael Adu-Yeboah

    wow, I will shrink the navigation and the to menu, battery display quick….hahhaha nice

  • Actman

    It doesn’t concern you idiot. I’m voicing out my dissatisfaction for this. You may keep your mouth shut or better yet F Off!

  • jokamutta

    So… Release date for Z5 Compact? Im from EU.

  • christere

    That was a mature response. ;)

  • It hasnt got manual Camera settings.. But dont worry, they can be supported in 3rd part apps..

  • Actman

    Done and thanks for highlighting this issue!

  • Eduardo Otero

    It also has started arriving, check on Xperia Companion, it won’t take long.

  • B.O.A The Brotherhood of Enter

    Most important thing for me after the update is keeping small apps :D I’m so very glad they did that because honestly if they didn’t i would’ve stuck with Android M.
    I don’t care too much for the new boot-logo and themes of the X-series as I use the Sony Theme engine which has way more awesome visual theme’s than sony stock. I would advice to try some Nota Doa themes like Fox, Jeans or Travel also themes like ‘interstllar’ and ‘Retro Ship’ look awesome!

  • Im unable to find multi window support. Do you know how to do it?

  • Shehab Skull

    me after updating to nougat and see :
    NO manual controls
    NO transparent clock on lockscreen
    NO smart claener
    NO battery care
    NO hand shutter

  • Ralphch97

    Guys should we write something on change.org?
    I mean the Z5 lineup is CLEARLY not being treated with the respect it deserves

    Maybe if we (with the help of XperiaBlog) petition, the company might here us or even reply and explain what they are doing.

    Thoughts?

  • Ralphch97

    You are correct
    But I’d rather wait and get something worthwhile, something special
    The Z5 series is not that old!
    I think it can handle a transparent lockscreen lol, and manual control….

  • LazAndKor

    Quick camera question. Do we get Predictive Autofocus? Or no?

  • razorg

    I read some comments that Predictive Autofocus is now available on Z5 (just like M5 got it months ago). But manual controls are not. :/

  • Long Hoàng Đình

    Hello, I have just updated my Xperia Z5 Compact and found that I can choose iso while using 23MP resolution. This should have been fixed long time ago but… Better late than never anyway.

  • Long Hoàng Đình

    The “focus mode” has disappeared and there is only “object tracking” left. Should it be good this way?

  • Ralphch97

    Open two apps (ex: chrome and youtube)
    In either of the apps keep pressing the recent apps button, and the multi window will open

  • razorg

    That’s good to hear :)

  • Dion

    If you’re ok seeing the same thing over and over its your thing but many are not ok with sticking to a boring ass UI alone the lockscreen would gave the phone a new good looking feel.

  • Dilipkumar

    Is it working?
    Predictive hybrid autofocus

  • razorg

    I still haven’t received the update. I said I just read some comments about it on the internet :/ You gotta ask someone else, man :/

  • alishayzadag

    Z5 already has PDAF since day one.

  • Dilipkumar

    How to check predictive hybrid autofocus??
    Is it working

  • razorg

    It was object tracking autofocus, not predictive autofocus. The latter, which was introduced with Xperia X, uses a different algorithm and actually predicts the object’s direction of movement, instead of keeping up with it behind…

  • razorg

    Dude, you have to reply to LazAndKor, not me! I’m saying I still haven’t got the update! Sorry but, do you speak English?….

  • they can be supported in this app maybe https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=pl.vipek.camera2 try if works SS and ISO, because on MM it doesnt work…

  • alishayzadag

    Oh! Sorry, I had Phase Detection AF on my mind. Let’s hope!

  • Geese Howard

    Then why not go for an iporn and their IOS and leave this ‘boring ass’ phone alone? Sony actually gave us an update man, it has a lot of cool features in it and people are complaining about trivial matters such as the lock screen? For real? The whole Nougat has already given the OS / phone a new look and feel to it, what else do you want more? Come on.

  • rus_media

    Crap.

  • Dion

    Most of the features are from google not sony it looks like 5.0.1 I payed them I supported them long enough buying their phones and what do we get an update that looks like lollipop but a little refined I said if youre ok with seeing the same thing over and over its your thing for me it got boring as hell and i expected a little change but we got a new battery icon and a refined settings app yeah.. why are you defending them I know that they gave us an update but its an update with no effort in it.
    and Ive used an ishit 6s worst mistake of my life you cant do anything with that phone want new music turn your pc on and transferbuy it via icloud want apps appstore only the ishit is just a scam.

  • It’s a bug with the new multiple apps in the screen. Whatever it’s called. Too bad that it hasn’t been fixed, yet

  • Sigma

    And that’s why companies would rather drop older phones. They spent a time to bring us Android N for on old flagship and what? Everybody is unhappy. Next time they will not bring us Android O. The same effect (unhappy customer) but so less effort to achieve it!

  • Александр Рубанов

    Hey guys! Just updated my z5 dual. Seems to be more smooth and fast. Just love these new notifications from N. If you are chasing any screens – reply here, I’ll post it.

  • Jose Antonio Almeida Madrazo

    any screenshot about the notifications?? .. thanks!

  • jokamutta

    Yea I checked, but it did not find a update :(

  • razorg

    Could you please post the same screen as this from your updated phone? (Settings->Apps->Camera) Thanks :) https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7f12cf32f2ecc66125722c42d38ed89ca7581155189a87bcb3f6d883e2105fc2.png

  • MikeU

    “No manual focus.
    No xperia X UI.
    No new themes.
    Less changes.”

    You can buy the XZ or Performance if you want those features. I do not expect Sony to give me (I own Z5 Premium) every feature from their most recent X brand; be happy that your phone is updated and has essential features. Eventually, I must upgrade because my phone will become obsolete with the new technologies emerging.

  • MikeU

    You can buy the Sony Xperia XZ or Performance if you want manual control option.

  • alexander gomez miguelm
  • MikeU

    Then go and buy an iPhone! I will stick with Sony!

  • Dion

    did you even see what I wrote?
    stop defending them and accept the truth

  • MikeU

    Sony Mobile Communications, thank you for updating the Z5 series/Z3+ to Android 7.0 (Nougat). Your efforts are appreciated.

  • razorg

    Those so-called “new” features are what the device supposed to come out with in the first place! Remember LG G4? That measly Korean phone? It had all the manual controls a power user could’ve hoped for! Z5 series have a better camera sensor and better CPU power (S810 instead of S808) so obviously it can and should take/process better photos than G4. When this is the case, why haven’t we still received these features LG could do with a worse camera and less CPU power? Since day 1, everyone was asking for these features and they told us to wait. Finally they released these features, but not for us! Forget LG, these features are currently officially implemented on Xperia X! What’s Xperia X got to enable it having those features that we don’t have? S650 in Xperia X is “almost” as powerful as S810 in our Z5 phones, let alone the fact that their cameras ARE IDENTICAL (from the sensor to the lens and the aperture….), Xperia X could manage it but our Z5’s can’t? They should’ve asked less money from me in the first place then! We paid a stupid amount for these phones than they are actually worth. We paid them like idiots and waited for them to keep their unofficial promises, but yeah, we were idiots as it seems. I’ve never got the “flagship” feel I was looking for, for the “flagship” price…

  • Sigma

    As for now for Z5C (E5823) there is only Customized AU on servers.

  • Amr El Torgman

    Is it only me or Xperiafirm downloading rate is slow like hell?

  • Александр Рубанов
  • Александр Рубанов
  • Jose Antonio Almeida Madrazo

    thanks !

  • MikeU

    Did you buy your phone when the LG G4 was available with the manual control option? If so, why you did not buy it?

    I understand your point. Sony “should” have included the manual controls in the Z5 series but addressed that “oversight” with their inclusion in the XZ and later Performance.

    I am not going to complain because your phone (and my phone) will become obsolete. When you upgrade next time, make sure you look for a phone (or brand) that has all the essential features you will use.

  • razorg

    So Camera app is indeed updated to 2.0.0, just like it is in XZ, but manual controls are disabled? I bet you a million £ that they spent actually more time “disabling” those features than they would’ve spent if they had just left the app as is. This show’s Sony’s attitude towards us, really, they just HATE us Z5 users…

  • jokamutta

    What does that mean?

  • Evan

    Will it ever come to the mid-range phones? IE M4 Aqua?
    Because if it does not come to the phone I better save for the new X series though I don’t want to do that much because I just bought the phone 6 months ago….

  • Troy Boateng-Agyemang

    Actually I just connected my Z5 E6653 to PC companion and I got the update.

  • Ates

    please screenshot about incoming call and what about loudnes for ringtones call…that was the big problem on 6.0.1…thank’s man

  • Moisés

    Why Sony would name the build the same for both?

    X and Xc have diferent front camera.

    I saw a video on youtube of a guy. This guy bought a S5 on internet . A single sim s5, the seller had installed the rom of s5 duos. It was working.

  • Moisés

    Z1 to z4, on 20.7 only WB and EV. No iso nor hdr.

  • Zayed Kotayba

    Well you forgot a crucial point and that is we are the one who paid 600 – 700 $ for a flagship phone and we are demanding to be treated as such.
    And just to be clear SONY is not giving us Nougat as charity !!

  • Arturo Pastrana

    Then dont update :), its just a lockscreen…

  • theskig

    Here’s how it works: follows the subject even if it moves. (the red ball in this case)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XpYaQIQTYrg

  • Arturo Pastrana

    Why? you are getting nougat in a one year old device, as much other comments say, Xperia X has his own UI feeling, and we have the look for Z series, so I dont see what the complain is

  • Ralphch97

    I did not even mention the UI lol
    I was talking about features like the manual camera, hand shutter, smart cleaner…

    Are these too much to ask??

  • theskig

    Really?
    Can you change the button bar size?

  • theskig

    If I’d still have my Z3 I will downgrade it to Kitkat :)

  • theskig

    For what?
    Your comment is pure populism.

  • Ralphch97

    Did you read how many people are pissed?!

    I think it’s safe to say that everyone expected more from the update (Didn’t you?!)

    I’m sorry I don’t think it’s pure populism, if you read carefully I asked a question and I wanted to share my thoughts
    And as always people are free to agree or disagree :)

  • Dion

    Mine was just fine

  • theskig

    Every update is the same story: people expect their phone change like if it’s a new one. That’s why they always modify the UI design. And most times it’s worse than before.

    Consider yourself lucky if you did not find any new bug, battery drain or missing feature. That’s what I usually expect from every system update.

  • mUSICA

    does apple have Z series or X series? Does Apple Run Android?

  • mUSICA

    Why Do You Expect X Series Features to Be Implement In Z Series? The X Series Is A Whole New Level

  • Robert Dunn

    Nope, it won’t. Sorry to burst your bubble. Mid-range phones are lucky to get just one major Android version upgrade and it comes WAY after the flagship phones get updated, so sorry.

  • Zayed Kotayba

    Don’t let me start about no root for locked bootloader in SONY phones LoL!

  • Niclas Bengtsson

    Seriously people. 2-3 years ago you complained Sony took forever to update the latest phone. Now that they do release the updates fast, you complain because the update doesn’t match your expectations. You can’t have it both ways. Sony used to take forever to release an update in the past=we complain about slow updates=Sony listens=Faster updates with smaller changes=disappointed fans that won’t get what they want. Seriously we have no one to blame but ourselves. If we hadn’t complained so much about slow updates in the past, then Sony would probably try harder to make more out of the updates today. But no, people are too stupid to understand that you can’t release a super update in just a month after the “boring original version”.

  • Be patient. As a Z5C (Customized UK) owner, this region/version tends to be a little behind the curve on updates, but they do show up eventually!

  • Carls Alvin

    what is your region?

  • razorg

    Same here, Z5 Compact (Customised UK). I remember, for .305 update we waited for almost 4 weeks after it hit the first region, but for .5.11 it was around 1 week. We have never received an update as the first region. But the time-to-release improved with the last Marshmallow one. Hope we get this first Nougat build next week at most…

  • Jacky

    the Qnovo battery care doesn’t work without the proper hardware, so z5 only gets the battery optimization located in settings > about phone.

  • Network Unlocked UK Z5 here, no update yet via OTA or xperia companion.. Despite upgrading to an s7 edge for my new contract [and for the raw/manual camera control.. sorry sony] i’ve still kept it as a backup and for my music blaster.. the lack of TRUE manual control for the camera without rooting is somewhat upsetting but i figured they would try and lock it down to the newer devices.. Oh well

  • Butch Sales Esmero

    More likely to the entire screen size ratio…. From home UI up to the apps, which makes it more crispier or sharper…

  • JaviBulle

    Probando la versión libre australiana, a la espera de la versión libre española o la versión de mi vida operadora (sólo por el 4G+).
    El móvil se siente más ágil que nunca, las nuevas notificaciones son geniales y el centro de notificaciones es mucho más intuitivo. Respecto a las quejas por la falta del UI del Sony Xperia X o XZ o la pantalla de bloqueo transparente , se entiende que Sony quiera mantener exclusividad y diferencia entre la gama X y la gama Z.

  • Terence Wu

    I don’t understand why SOOOO many Z5 users cry about no X series features in the comments? By name you can know they’re just 2 completely different series and feature differently. Why don’t we see Z series’ screen recording, small app on X series? Should X series users cry for them?

  • phil g

    Downloaded and installed on my Z5 this morning. Has any one noticed the camera is much faster with this update? I’ve taken a bunch of pictures in all different lighting and noticed it’s much quicker to open and snap a picture. I’m impressed with this update. Thanks Sony!

  • Wooty

    He is merely voicing out his own opinion as a consumer. Stop trying to be dick!

  • Adheesha Kanchana

    Why would you get pissed. I guess you are currently using the X Compact, and all this complains are about Z5 and Z3+

  • Wooty

    It is still under Xperia afterall. S6 series and Note series are completely different models. Why they almost share the identical software after the major update?

  • dko3tgk

    Me too Z5 Dual updated 17 JAN.. My alarm was so quiet this morning I almost didn’t hear it. The speaker levels have dropped in half. Is there a way to turn up the volumes in a system menu?

    Does anyone know what it means and how I can solve it?
    Thank you

    There you have it Split Screen and also my night mode works. It’s a lot beter. I’m grateful kudos sony my only disappointment is I had to wait in suspension for a long time before getting it. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a798226102c5824736e772da0eacb9ccfee05ab7f22a707ff263722b14a4a518.png

  • yopo

    3rd part apps sucks

  • KzX

    There are a lot of third party apps to do it. You can also use Google Play Game (preinstalled).

  • hansip

    No, it’s the standard practice. One thing you need to remember, companies are doing this not for the sake of their own laziness, but to ensure that even older person who rely on their manual for help, can still use the device without getting confused on how things work because they have changed. So it is intended pure and simple.

    Of course we want the new design of X phone but that’s why X phone is released, so you need to buy them. Nothing comes for free, so yeah we should be glad that Sony still updates the Z5 with Nougat, plus even better, you get the best of both world. A Small App and a Split window. How cool is that? :)

  • Terence Wu

    No screen recording, no small app, no MHL support. And X doesn’t support OTG (even my old Xperia C3 supports it), don’t know whether XP and XZ support it.

    3rd app should do the work, but not from SONY.

    This update pissed me off bad

  • Terence Wu

    There is no dilemma, apparently X is better. I used to consider Z5 and X, not even think about Z3+. X has better heat control, less heating-up issuse, better screen, better camera with PDAF and predictive auto focus, Concept for Android software(only single SIM edition), and faster update.

    AS for loudness, actually I can’t compare as I use sony smartwatch 3 and nearly never change vibrate mode on my xperia. All incomming notofications I feel on my hand)

  • Troy Boateng-Agyemang

    Believe me it’s not worse.

  • 3_nity

    Indonesia still waiting for Xperia Z3+ Dual

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    is it loud and clear as in 5.1 or low volume ans plastic sound as in 6.0.1?

  • jag

    Z3+ IS GETTING THE UPDATES AS WELL! INDIA AND RUSSIA!
    I thought SG is getting it too but when I take a look twice it is just 32.2 something. saaaaaaaaaaaaaddd!!! ;<

  • Geese Howard

    Your own writing man, seriously? You definitely have issues understanding about yourself, the conflicts and insecurity inside I can understand. I use to by like that when I was a teen, but I grew up and evolved. For the evolution of your soul, I urge you to do the same. Also, you call an update a compensation? Since when has Sony owed you anything? I am wasting my time with you :)

  • Venkatasurya Prakash
  • Robert Bulikowski

    Z3+ rolling now RU + IN

  • A.o.D

    Yup. Just got in on my z3+ in India

  • Damodar Reddy

    Dear All, Thanks to Sony for Quick software update to Z5 Series. Hope Sony worked hard and improved on giving software update when compare to older days. Appreciate SONY, but I am not happy with battery performance and not improved anything and I can see consuming more batter when compare to Marsmallow. Not much changes from SONY and its disappointing me a lot. I have noticed when I switch on Bluetooth consuming more battery and SONY not worked and tested in-depth before releasing… SONY please work on battery improvement. I have setup all options. When compare to other smartphones I love sony, but SONY needs to work on improvements.

  • Gohan

    Major software upgrade need clean install and possibly a reset if not.

    Also battery should be judged after a week..

  • jag

    go clean install to save yourself from troubles.

  • jag

    i will do a clean install if I were you.

  • Gahead

    I’m all HAPPY about the update,I don’t care if the Z5 series (for me)doesn’t get
    -smart cleaner
    -X lockscreen
    -X UI
    -battery care

    but
    One thing sure disappoints me as a Xperia Mobile Photography Enthusiast

    NO MANUAL CONTROLS!

    like what? I understand If I’m a Z3+ user and doesn’t get it, but Z5?

    Z5 has the same IMX300 sensor like those of the X, X Performance and XZ, that’s very sad and disapponting never the less, It’s all good and I’m still sticking with SONY.

  • Gohan

    X series exclusive?

    But sad

  • Damodar Reddy

    You mean to say software repair or factory reset?

  • Damodar Reddy

    Clean Install means? I have installed through Xperia Companion. Can you be more clear on Clean Install means?

  • Gohan

    Software repair..
    Once completed, give factory reset(optional)

    And use phone without 3rd party apps for 2-3days. After that feel free to play.

    This is what I follow and I never had any issue with Z3

  • Sri Aditya Vardhan Chowdary

    Updated to 7.0, but many apps crashing “Stopped Working” message is shown. Hope those apps gets their respective compatibility soon.

  • Gahead

    I don’t if it’s really X series exclusive, based in the official Sony website , manual controls lists only X,Xperf,X compact and XZ ; Once I thought because they got the update but didn’t knew it would be that serious.

  • Tochi Nwodu

    Hahaha you seriously have issues understanding English
    You are totally out of context! Sadly, you are so retarded
    Were is conflict and insecurity coming from?
    Go back and check the meaning of the word compensation and add it in the concept of releasing an update for the sake of it!
    You are completely out of point.
    Nobody wishes to read about you life story
    Save it for your offspring

  • Damodar Reddy

    Thank you Gohan for your suggestion…what’s your opinion on Battery status?

  • Gohan

    My phone is 2year old. Still rock solid.
    I use magnetic charging cable.

    I always keep 3G network and data on. I get 5hour SOT and 1day backup.

    half day if i play Clash games nonstop :P

    PS: Dont believe battery status after upgrade/reset. Wait for few days.

  • Gohan

    Exactly.

  • Robert Dunn

    O rly?

  • Janatan

    Reading these comments on my XZ. Guys chill, I don’t even notice the lockscreen most of the time, not even once when I hold my Z2 do I think that I miss XZ lock screen. You guys should be complaining more about the camera’s manual control,that is the game changer. The smart cleaner; I switch it off always as it kinda lags the phone when multitasking (when turned on the phone doesn’t hold memory of opened apps, most time apps reload). The only thing you guys are missing is the manual control on camera..In fact you guys have better Audio and ring volume than XZ users.

  • Geese Howard
  • Zaki

    The loud speaker is lower than before

  • Zaki

    It’s getting lower
    I’m not sure about number but maybe around 30-40% lower (loud speaker)

  • Robert Dunn

    Still waiting for it to roll out for the US variant firmware. I’m too lazy to flash another firmware.

  • Zaki

    Me too z5c

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    Lol, how could it be lower? It’s already was low as hell

  • I have UK model. Its will take 2 weeks from now that will be available.

  • kurakuradisco

    if i have these :
    From XPERIA V – Z – Z ULTRA – ZR – Z1 – Z3C – Z5C – Z5 DUAL and finally X Compact

    then i wouldn’t my Z5 Dual UI same as my X Compact, it’ll makes it unique, unity in diversity… i wouldn’t my V UI same as my Z’s…

    but… if i have it all…

    if i have it all….

  • Yahia Salah

    I own Z3+ dual sim and today I got system update notification for Nogut! Downloading now.

    Cheers from Egypt!

  • Ates

    z3+ or z5 lower or both

  • Sunrise
  • LiuVirgo

    oh man…the update makes my z5c speaker loudness lower and also when i play some music the first 1-2 sec the sound was loud and then it lower itself.. ~_~
    what should i do?

  • Troy Boateng-Agyemang

    My battery is draining quite fast now after updating it what can I do? Please any suggestions

  • christere

    Couldn’t agree more. This thread just shows how incredibly stupid people are.

  • christere

    X is not waterproof though.

  • christere

    Yeah Sony hate you. :)

  • Stefan

    which speaker are you talking about? the one that you put on your ear while having a phone call or the one that lets you hold your phone in your hands while calling?

  • Stefan

    which speaker are you talking about?? the one that you put on your ear while having a phone call or the one that lets you hold your phone in your hands while calling?

  • LiuVirgo

    both i think…because when you play media like music, video , etc then both front stereo speaker play the sound

  • Kippel

    Whiskey.Tango.Foxtrot happens with the 6603 update?

  • YuuriAyano

    Yup!

  • Johannes

    Very cool! You got a screenshot for me?

  • Terence Wu

    Yeah, nothing is perfect. A lot of great phones don’t have waterproof. That’s up to your demand in specific: what feature do you need most and whether those lost features matter to you. To my experience, I love my Xperia X.

  • Daniel Craig

    I know it has a good reputation in the updates. BUT half of the critics don’t even recommend Sony. however I’m satisfied with every single phone I’ve bought from Sony.

  • Actman
  • Babis Skeparnakos

    What ????????
    Small apps still there on Z5???
    Why did they remove it from X line ??
    That is no fair. Newer sevice with less software??

  • Actman

    I do a ‘clean’ installation. Which mean after updating to .372, I do another repair my phone maneuver. Seriously I may have biased towards this update but by doing the ‘clean’ installation, I did not encounter any low volume or even battery draining issue. Now my battery can last up to 18 hours without charging (average usage) which I ‘suppose’. Hopefully it helps!

  • Zaki

    The loud speaker was lower than before
    Not the ear piece
    The ear piece was loud enough, you can clearly hear the other person who call you

  • Conny Ahlgren

    uhm, I have had nougat on my HTC 10 for serval weeks now

  • Conny Ahlgren

    HTC 10 has Nougat, just not in EU and Asia ^^

  • Zaki

    I’ll try this clean install to fix the low volume issue when i got time
    So far everything works fine except the low volume speaker
    Now i have to set the volume 80 to 100% volume to get loudness as 60-70% before update (estimated)

  • Mario Blanco Vílchez

    You got a Z series model, you are asking for a feature on a X series model.

    Don’t worry, we’ll wait for you until you get what’s going on.

  • Daniel Johanzon

    Which countries do you come from that has been updated to 7.0 Z5 compact

  • Dion

    Whats wrong with getting stuff from the X series? because of a letter I shouldnt get anything from it? I payed for that phone so I expect something, the z5 got nothing but poor updates and still there are people letting themselves get fooled I wouldnt complain but the z5 line is just a disappointment I’ve never complained about an update but I’ve expected more

  • Ivan Knezevic

    Kad ti je stigao update? U Bosni jos nista :/

  • Muhammad Waqas

    I am running Beta version of Android 7 on my Honor 8 and it is great and pretty stable.

  • Actman

    Glad that Sony still updates the Z5 with Nougat – Wow you are talking trash here buddy. Look we do not owe SONY anything but SONY owes us. Have you forgotten the ‘2 years support’ from ANY I mean ANY OEM out there for their flagships. So should I express my gratitude towards SONY for upgrading Z5 now? Get your facts straight before you write!

  • hansip

    Yes they owe us. But feeling glad for it is not wrong too. Besides the z5 is old flagship and yet they are updated fairly quick compared to s7 and the likes. So that’s one reason to be glad. Why do you have to take everything so negatively? Sheesshh..

  • Actman

    Lol. You don’t get the point here. I mean is there any difference (if you can see any) if Z5 series got the update earlier than those Android OEMs out there with just a little changes. Even if those SONY developers were given enough time preparing Nougat for Z5 Series, would you say we would having a different result? If so, I wouldn’t mind if Nougat update got deferred for Z5 family; providing we got some new features, enchantment UI and lock screen.

  • Jose Antonio Almeida Madrazo

    nothing yet for 6603 …

  • Wooty

    You are right buddy. 2 years support, they promised.

  • razorg

    I’m “G94N” who also posted there. And again, as you see, the sh.t brained admins deemed our thread (and posts underneath it) to be “unsuitable” for the forum and immediately blocked the thread. So much for “customer satisfaction” there, you see… (they showed the same behaviour to a couple of my posts/messages months before, and that time I wasn’t even using angry words, I just wanted us to talk and discuss in a civilised, friendly manner there but even so, they would just lock or delete my threads/posts without any words. That’s when I lost my patience and respect towards them…)

  • LazAndKor

    So, in other words you do a software repair after you update to 7.0 right?

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    Either u are bullshitting abt having these fones or u are son of some Rich dad.
    No rich idiot wud buy all these phones every 6 to 1 yr. And I guess you have just 2 hands and knowing u cant use more than 1 phone at any given point, ..
    Well I just rest my case. Go whine all you want, u sound like the new Timel.
    And I have a z1 and z5. I use z1 as my music system and z5 daily driver. I am satisfied with what i have in z5.

  • Wooty

    First and foremost are you sure those X series won’t obtaining those small apps in the future updates? But for me, I’m pretty sure Z5 users just got screwed

  • Actman

    If I can snap each of every of these devices a picture, I dare you to carry it along with your cavadee during your Thaipoosam. Dare you?

Are u so naive to even think u r that important. U r just a troll for me in this page and I am just going to enjoy my time with ur dumb comments…

  • Tochi Nwodu

    Please anyone experience low ringtone volume

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    Do a clean install, its fine for me after that

  • Actman

    First I didn’t remark that I was that ‘IMPORTANT’. You were the crap that replying my message which I’m not favouring to. Secondly as if I’m a troll who are you then? Some troll followers? Thirdly, you were enjoying my comment just how am I enjoying your dumbness. Lastly do you have a dick? If you do, well accept my bet then! I shall take those pictures just how you wanted it to be. Be a word, a gesture or even a sign to prove me right! Or better yet, check with SONY. Just as I reiterated earlier on, check on the warranty registration which all under my name. If I’m were you, (a man with a dick) I shall accept the challenge. But make sure your cavadee is getting ready you idiot.

    I bought so many XPERIA devices so it equals on how much money I have invested on this company. YOU? Who are you? So its totally my right of voicing out those dissatisfaction.

  • Tochi Nwodu

    Thats what I did
    The sound is just funny from d music to the ringtone
    Top speak sounds the most no stabilisation

    And please stop telling me which is which, be it a daily driver or wiping your s with a women’s pad. Seriously I’m not interested on this shit. My aim is SONY and certainly not some cheap disquisition craps from ya.

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    Thanks for letting everyone in the forum that you have a dick, the most useful information everyone was waiting to know since yesterday. Now that you have one go get busy with it. Thanks for being a dick man.

    You just said BETA! not everyone has it. Plus Sony gave X users 7.0 beta long ago.

    But the update isn’t widely available yet.

    I see… Man that is a disappointment though understandable because is a Mid Range Phone, thanks for the reply!

  • Dilipkumar

    Hey guys
    Anyone noticed that prblm in viewing photos on Z5
    V all are using super vivid mode for better image quality which is available in display settings.
    Wen we viewing a photo it takes very less second to convert into good clarity. But In nougat update it takes more time to convert the image into super vivid.
    Big drawback

    Try that nd post ur comments

  • Perry Shilton

    ummm the z5 always had manual camera settings

  • Shutter Speed, Manual Focus? No!

  • Sidhant Taneja

    i am using Sony Xperia Z5 Premium, but update is not available for me. it shows your device is running latest version. what should i do.

  • joe

    Lebanon

  • Vahid Sanati

    I don’t use image enhancements but I did noticed when i zoom in a large image it takes a little more time to render the original quality of the image. I also tried quick pic that was superfast in android 6 and it take a little longer too. but very faster than sony album.

  • Vahid Sanati

    I also noticed the phone is a little laggy after the update. also have another sound related problem that when I use the equalizer in playerpro app the music gets mute until I restart the phone.

  • Nick Page

    Hi all just dropped the E6653 rom on my E6603 no issues so far!

  • Hendrik

    Z5 fingerprint sensor is wayyyy better than before! Very fast and without any malfunction now. This is one thing which makes this update great, and I guess there are many more improvements which are not visible yet.

    One thing that really gets on my nerves is that stamina indicator. Does anybody know how to get rid of this one without having to deactivate it? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b59e6bcba9a5953bc1b03f0f70888af582b322e108c0fee0b3ea6afec21ef29b.png

  • JC

    Not yet, I’m in Mexico.

  • JC

    More like a software issue. Try a clean install, perhaps something went wrong with the update.

  • JC

    Try creating a new thread, don’t let the dictator-admins get away with it.

    Coz its not XZ its Z5

    Totaly not agree with you. Sony is the best

  • Nick Page
  • Tochi Nwodu

    The speaker is messed up.
    top speaker has more bass
    Why the change who asked them?
    The ringtone volume goes high then drops to the point I cant hear the phone ring

  • Tampoco el E6603, sigo a la espera…y me está matando :S

  • Pero es super frustrante ver que todo mundo se actualiza y sólo los ‘tercermundistas’ al final! :(

  • Deberían dar la opción de poder desisntalarla, creo que es bastante inutil!

  • Do you guys know if there would be any problem if I flash a E6653 N ROM on my E6603?
    Thinking on doing it…

  • Dilipkumar

    Yes

    Wat will be the reason

  • Jason Teng

    Hi Everyone, I updated my Xperia Z5 Premium (E6853) to 32.3.A.0.372 a couple of days ago and all seems to be good but a major issue is Bluetooth AVRC and displaying media metadata. Basically, bluetooth playback controls (i.e. play, pause, next track, previous track) will not work and the metadata of the music or video you’re playing will not be displayed. As I use bluetooth audio around 10 hours per day, I would definitely have NOT updated to this version had I known the bluetooth issues [facepalm]

  • rus_media

    Not sure about headphone, but phone speaker volume went down a lot.

  • Steven Khoo Skkl

    But does the iPhone 6, much less 5, run as smooth as the 7 does with all the new functions? No, it doesn’t, and that’s a well known fact.
    Sony never pushed the blame to Google.. It was already openly admitted by developers since Google changed their API at the final Android 7 beta.
    Why do people want the exact same thing as the latest anyway? I prefer if the best software is left to their current flagship and just do a toned down version for their prior flagship or else everyone will be going for the cheaper phone and then a company won’t be making any money now.

  • Ruben bvb

    Damn you Sony, why didn’t you release nougat for Model number E6603, there’s just for E6653

  • Gregory See

    If you speak according to ‘your’ facts. Perhaps Xiaomi is losing money each and every year. Why not comparing prices between Xiaomi and Xperia?

  • Steven Khoo Skkl

    Well, Xiaomi doesn’t need to maintain physical stores, so there’s a lot less upkeep. Probably hundreds of millions in savings from store rents and workers pay, secondly, they don’t last long. Most xiaomi owners i know change their phone almost yearly because it starts to lag atrociously after just 6 months, but since they can ship their orders in millions, bulk orders are cheaper you know?

    Edit, they also sell various accessories that isn’t really worth the money.. like a 30k mAH powerbank that charges a few times then seem to run out of juice?

  • Xenobio

    Any good ones you can recommend please?

    See section B. Performing a software repair

    With that process all your data will be cleared/ wiped and there will be no fragmented files all over your system, thus it is called clean install. This helps a lot when doing a major os version update.

  • Troy Boateng-Agyemang

    Thanks I will hard reset it then

  • Steve

    They are like asking BMW 7 series features with BMW 3 series……
    Different line of products should have different features,atleast something to differentiate between…

  • androexpert00

    Yes but HTC 10 it’s the 2016 Flagship. What about the 2015 flagship HTC M9? Sony is actually the first company with brought the update to its 2015 flagship. This is what I calla great support.

  • androexpert00

    Big improvement in fingerprint sensor with is now like 2 times faster than before on MM. I spoke with a friend who works as a Dev for stony, he said that they’ve included in Nougat the same fingerprint algorithm included in Xperia XZ. Great, Really.

  • Stefan

    maybe they have changed the algorithms on the Z5 series but that won’t change the fact that the early Z5 series fingerprint sensor is trash! i’m sure this is a hardware problem, not a software problem! too bad i bought my z5 compact when it was released.

  • theskig

    Every update is a (bad) surprise for BT controls or display info.
    I also have a bad bug with audio on Huawei Watch (loses pairing 5 times a day), I hope they fixed it on Nougat (waiting for update on my Z5 Premium Dual)

  • Andrea

    ahahah

  • androexpert00

    Still the sensor for me is really great. It’s now faster than ever on Nougat, but it’s a fact that it is not as accurate as XZ one. But at least it has the same speed.

  • Snupe

    Do we get this Z5 update in next year? people from Slovenia

  • Ivan Knezevic

    Bosnia as well

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    Ask him, whe they ruined volume level ? It was low even in 6.0.1? now it’s almost silent

  • ben bleho

    yes, me too. installed yesterday on my z5c and can not use equilizer with “music folder player”, sound is very low then. switch of eq solved it, this which was no problem before.

  • ben bleho

    XperiCheck shows, that only two customizations for Z5compact got nougat until now:
    1298-7260 Customized AU and
    1298-5167 CIS RU UA KZ BY
    I am from Germany but I’m glad that I bought my z5c during holidays in Russia, so I got the update yesterday (via pc companion, not OTA).
    1298-5167 always belongs to the first ones when rolling.

  • androexpert00

    You mean in speakers? Because I’ve never had this trouble in headphones but I’ve noticed too that volume is lower now on Nougat than marshmallow nut not so much.

  • Ivan Knezevic

    I’m trying with flashtool, but it cannot detect downloaded Firmware via Xperifirm. Am I doing something wrong?

  • hansip

    Do you think Dual Window itself is not enough a reason to update to Nougat? I understand if you already have it with Samsung but come on, it’s the first time ever that feature is guaranteed working across Android apps and now it has come into Sony devices. It is a BIG changes for most of us who do multitask on phone. So i’m glad it came early at this stage. Ok maybe other OEM doesn’t have to be included as a comparison, but yes, i can say that i am still glad i can have Dual Window NOW rather than waiting any longer.

  • hansip

    Nope, Small App is essentially an outdated framework. Sony ceased to support the framework development since long time ago. I made 4 of em so i know how things go with Small App.

    Can you ask your Dev Friend on why the Z5 didnt get any Manual controls and X lockscreen. Any improved algorithm on the Picture proccesing or picture quality?

  • Janatan

    I get 5-6 hours screen on time by the end of the day. I charge once in 24hours. Battery life gets better with every charge. When I bought the phone I only managed 3-4 hours SOT for the same use.

  • Koro

    u too??

    in my case, at first my phone wont read every musics n videos in sd card..

    it always said “cannot play song” or “cannot play video”..

    i tried to play via mxplayer, it said “cant play this link”..
    but all musics n videos in internal memory have no prob..

    i tried to backup my sd card, n then format n restore, still have same prob, even my picts got corrupted..
    but when i tried to use my old xperia mini pro 16gb sd card, it works like normal..
    i think my 32gb is broken, so i buy n upgrade to 64gb n restore from my 32gb backup, but it have same prob again..

    really need a way to fix it..
    :(

    Bug found: Cannot delete number dialled from history…

    You can block a number but you cant delete the history?!? Hope sony fixes this soon.

  • JaviBulle

    How i do a clean install? I have the same problem: call spekears sound as usual, then get lower.
    No more problem except this.

  • Rodolfo Gallego

    Xperia Care replied to my ticket in 10 minutes! Brilliant!

    Thanks Sony

    Thank you for contacting the Sony Xperia support centre regarding the call log on your Xperia Z5.

    To delete a call from the call log in Android 7.0 please follow the steps below:

    1. From your Home screen, tap the Application screen icon.

    2. Find and tap Phone.

    3. Tap the item you want to delete.

    4. Tap Call details.

    5. Tap the trash bin icon in the top right corner.

  • Daniel Craig

    I Doubt that, but even if it did it worked with instability and a lot of bugs.

  • Daniel Johanzon

    you who have received the Android 7.0 which country are you from?

  • Goran

    Serbia as well

  • LazAndKor

    Does it seem that Sony stopped releasing 7.0 to other regions? Both Xpericheck and Xperifirm show that the Z5 Family hasnt got any new region release, only the day-one ones. Could they possibly have delayed the release to fix bugs?

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    Headphones volume also were around 40% higher in 5.1.1

  • Dilipkumar

    Bug found in image quality processing time:-( Sony pls fix this :@

    I enabled image enhancements and now it is taking much more time to render the image original quality.

  • ben bleho

    question: I have updated my z5c to nougat. Under settings->developer options I see, that automatic update (seamless update) function is there and it is enabled. As far as I know seamless update works only on devices, which were shipped with nougat, not on devices like z5c, which were updated to nougat (because of partitions..) Is it working nevertheless or what?

  • Thanks for the advice, but what does ’53 one cat6 03 one cat4′ mean?

  • Hendrik

    Thanks for your tip. You can only choose between “Nur Benachrichtigungssymbol” and “Nicht stummschalten” which means to show only the symbol if there would be a new notification or to act like any other normal notification and show the toast pop-up as well.
    So I can’t take this STAMINA one away? :/ Why not. Sony?

  • Are you for real?
    Does it really work?

  • Nick Page

    Yes it does, look in the post replies I’ve done to others the instructions are there :-)

  • dko3tgk

    YEs my speaker volume is much lower on my Z5 Dual, need max volume to hear in a room with light background noise.

  • mado

    It back works after restart.. I think that issue was there in another marshmallow update

  • Jacky

    updates roll out in stages and also it’s the weekend so i don’t think we’ll see a second patch to roll out until next week

  • Jacky

    did u set a timer for do not disturb mode?

  • CaptainPure

    I not very happy with this update
    Pros : screen is now wide, better battery, etch.
    Cons: low speakers sound when play music, even at max volume, wasting costumer time for finding solution of heat problem

  • Furkan Ege
  • nik

    Yes for E6853 as well! Now only available for Russia, all others gone

  • Hyung-Woo Jung

    That’s unfortunate. My Z5C was accidentally dropped into toilet water(trouser’s pocket was too shallow) 2 months ago, but there has been no anomalies on my side. I washed it in tap water, let it dry for an hour, and still using it like nothing happened. It was a scary incident, but glad mine was waterproof as designed.

  • Hyung-Woo Jung

    Same story for Z5C (E5823). I’ve been waiting eagerly for it, but now the updates are pulled entirely.

  • Ates

    it’s gone from Russia too

  • Ivan Knezevic

    Flashed it yesterday. Seems like I caught last train to Nougat for now :D

  • Ates

    Do you have some problems with nougat?

  • Furkan Ege

    nice catch :D but im wondering why they removed them all

  • Ivan Knezevic

    Either they found too much bugs, or servers fall down due the rush of downloading…I guess

  • Ivan Knezevic

    Not for now. I have it for a day, only thing I’ve noticed is that battery drains little bit faster from 100 to 80%, but from 30 to 15% it took hours while you still using it. That’s what I’ve noticed for now.

  • LazAndKor

    I did a software repair and the problem went away. I hadn’t set the timer. Oh well.

  • Dennis

    Does anybody know why the Nougat update for the Z5 is no longer visible in XperiFirm??
    I was checking to see if there where other regions added but now i can’t see the previous released regions anymore..

  • Ivan Knezevic

    Check the last post by XperiaBlog

  • Furkan Ege

    i tipped that :D sony xperia support doesnt know why they pull the update.

  • Mohamed Faiez
  • Ivan Knezevic

    Does you guys know any way to restore some files, data, messages after factory reset my Xperia Z5? I was trying to flash Nougat yesterday, so I needed to unlock bootloader, and I didn’t know that with unlocking all my data will bi wiped…so, is there any solution for unrooted phone?

  • Ahmad Mostafa

    I have xperia z5 dual and i didnt get ota update?? Can any one tell me why?? Thx

  • JC

    Did you even read my post?

  • Muhim Alam

    Hey Ivan, before using flashtool you can backup your data using xperia companion…..and sorry that I didn’t read your post properly

  • Ivan Knezevic

    I already flashed, so no time for backup…just tryin’ to find a way to restore deleted files.

  • Zaki

    okay i finaly got it
    it’s need more step rather than simply tap and choose delete option

  • Nandish Punter

    Any news on Nougat on XA devices? Is it even coming because there is absolutely no news around that. I know that device is not so popular. Asking since I use it

  • Camilo Uribe

    I downloaded the ftf for the z5 E6653, can I flash the premium E6883 with the same file? thanks

  • Ok ok … and build number 32.2.A.0.305 ¿When will it be ready?

  • Amigo, esa actualización salió hace como 3 meses, la ultima en Marshmallow es la 32.2.A.5.11 ;)

  • Damodar Reddy

    What’s going with SONY no more updates to Z5 series mobiles… they only concentrating X series and XZ…. hope sony don’t like to provide updates to older devices…. I just hate sony for delaying or not providing quick software updates…

  • netsurfer912

    Hey, Nougat is nice.
    But as long as the official camera software is as bad as it is on the Z5 (and only somewhat better on the x), it’s hard to completely love, especially when the Open Source driver would be perfect with just a bit of tweaking (no freaking shutter lag & noise removal and tons of options!).
    Sadly Sony seems to feel the same way. I really think the Z5 compact’s hardware design is amazing and am super saddened to see the progress they’ve made go down the drain with the X line.

  • netsurfer912

    With what technology is capable of and what LG is doing with the Vs (mind blowing options), Sony is really insulting itself here not giving any options even in “manual” mode. It’s ridiculous.

  • netsurfer912

    That forum seems totally abandoned, Wasn’t there supposed to be some new way to communicate?
    Also, at this point I think we might be better off using the Open Source driver as a basis, which also removes great “features” such as “noise removal” (a.k.a. oil painting filter). The only big problem it has right now (I think) what I think to be image over-stabilisation making everything look wobbly.
    Otherwise it’s just many times better, It has tons of options (Snapdragon Camera!) and the shutter is instant.

  • Damodar Reddy

    Hello All, Any update on when SONY going to release android N update for Z5 with bug fix… is sony working or just ignoring to update…. not sure why soo delay…. I never buy going forward sony mobiles… very bad updates from sony.

  • razorg

    I seriously hope all this wait is for a proper 7.1.1 build without any bugs. If not, Sony will lose our faith in them. And please noone tell me “Oh relax, you’ll get it eventually. Look at Samsung, S6 hasn’t even got it” etc sort of thing because I haven’t paid loads of £ just so I can get the updates “as a blessing” from Sony. That price not only includes the physical device’s cost, also includes the pre-paid “support”. If I wouldn’t believe in Sony’s name reputation and the quality support I’d get, I’d probably go and buy a cheaper Chinese counterpart with more-or-less same specs etc by sacrificing “prolonged software support” (and not to mention, even Chinese companies are getting better day by day, so if Sony wants to have more “pluses” when compared to others, they should not let their quality drop in terms of “updates”…)

  • Carls Alvin

    Where is the update!

  • razorg

    Guys!!! 32.3.A.0.376 is being released for Z5/Z3+ series right now!!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c27e8623315d0211487e789f2d8cd2fc1e5505b2eace1d6ade9c8e7c06c94cca.png

    You’re just ahead of me :).. Hopefully they will push it a bit faster then usual..

  • FYLegend21

    I hope Taiwan gets it soon. Seems that Taiwan and Hong Kong are still on .305 and Singapore only got it a few weeks ago. Hope they can skip it!

    Customized TH rolled out 32.2.A.5.11 during the time Nougat was pulled and now they get it as well…

  • Daniel Craig

    I can’t say I don’t agree, having an open source driver would be excellent. shutter lag still exists on Nougat?

  • Daniel Craig

    Yeah I can see that recently, but the updates are on the air again for Z5.

    Just got my Nougat update for my Z5 premium yesterday and lo and behold they haven’t tested the basics.

    Google Play store not accessible – 0/10 (their support website not even working either, surprise surprise)
    Event Music on plug in headphones: crash, play, stop, then play, then stop, then play through phone speaker, then stop (I could go on) – 0/10

    Apart from those two things, great…..!!!!!

    I did this search: “xperia z5 premium nougat update google play store not working” and got the results from the marshmallow updates as well, which also broke the play store previously.

    Haven’t they learnt anything from software roll outs yet?

    After every major upgrade/update, give some day. Let the rom settle. After a week or so, you can monitor your battery usage.

    PS: Sorry for quick response.
