Sony “still working” on Nougat update for Xperia Z5 family – “priority is user experience”

by XB on 23rd January 2017

in Android, Firmware


Earlier today Sony Mobile gave a quick update on Android Nougat for the Xperia Z5/Z4Tablet/Z3+ series, saying that it is “still working on the inconsistencies” and that the firmware rollout will recommence as soon as possible. It also confirmed that the company’s “priority is user experience”.

Sony started the Android Nougat rollout early last week, before halting the update unexpectedly. Hopefully, we will see the revised firmware rollout quickly.

Thanks Alvin, Lazaros and Mujahid!

    Let’s see who is the first to complain about them taking their time to get it right as opposed to rushing a buggy release and getting complaints about THAT.

  • Abood

    How long will come for Xperia xa ultra

  • Liam Hethershaw

    ‘Priority is user experience’ – please please be addding the X ui

  • FELIPEACYDC

    please, add vulkan drivers to Z5… i have it with nougat and i cant play vulkan games

  • Ararat Khlghatyan

    forward to next Smartphone, the speakers were louder as the iphone, samsung

  • Stuart Gardoll

    I’ve been using Nougat on my Z5 since the day the update came out and haven’t had any issues whatsoever – audio or otherwise – and I use a variety of 3rd party audio software and Bluetooth headphones and speakers. In short, the update has been great for me. Really interested to hear about what specific issues people have been having (other than lack of X UI yada yada)

  • Melvin Mejia

    Please add Xperia X Bootanimation

  • razorg

    Exactly!!!

  • Moisés

    Some people complain about the speaker, too weak.
    And issues when they use spotify.

    Loss of performance (z3+)

  • Moisés

    Z3+ has weak ringtones, but for music and videos I think it too loud when you do not use earphones

  • Moisés

    XA and Ultra are the next, probably until end of february..
    These Z issues may delay things a lil bit

  • Stefcon

    Got the Australian Nougat version on my z5 compact. Running smooth so far. I also dont see why to complain about the UI. Its lean and nice.

    Only battery drain (which was supposed to be better with nougat) seems to be a bit stronger than with Marshmallow.

  • I’m waiting here…:(

  • Arash

    I need custom rom related help where can I ask such questions?
    I want to unlock my bootloader using the code sony gave me but when I connect the device ( Z Ultra) in fastboot mode ( blue LED light ) my device is not recognized and in the command prompt this messegae is shown: (( ))
    I’m using win 10 x64 and in device manager i updated the USB driver using windows ( not manually since I cant open the drivers file and I don’t know how or why )
    please help if possible

  • ravi

    Using 7.0 on my z3+ , and a major bug is here . It seems almost impossible to play continious video on youtube and long tine gaming (^_-)

    Can anybody confirm that !!

  • Benjamin Estimada

    RIP XA Series. Delayed. :(

  • JaviBulle

    Pros: Faster, smoother and agile user experience ever. Without overheating, colder than ever.
    Bugs: only lower speakers volume level than MM, especially in ringtone, notifications and music (the sound stars without problems, loud and clear as always, but at 1-2 seconds later, sound descends abruptly)

    (Z5, Spain, flashed AU nougat version, waiting spanish version)

  • vaibhav jain

    I can just add that the water resistance of Xperia z5 is not working after an year of use.

  • Amir H. Navidfar

    Never received the update. Hopefully this time I’ll receive it.

  • Dilipkumar

    Appreciating the good response from Sony.
    Waiting for a perfect update.

    Thank Sony :-)

  • Farhan Ansari

    I got nougat update but it suddenly disappeared and still waiting for it.. May I know how much time it will take to roll out please…..

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    z3+ nougat experience : camera app closes itself as phone heats up. 18 hours of battery life with regular usage. notification sound are loud then before. UI is smooth. Call app scrolling lags.

  • Shaf Sadiyan

    I noticed the same. I’ve increased battery drain even after having stamina mode to always on.

  • josh.megan

    I just made my first five figure pay this week! I’ve been working for this carrier using the web for roughly 2 years now, and I’ve never been more satisfied… I get paid $95 per hour, and the best thing about it is the fact I am not that tech-savy, they only asked for common insight into internet and normal typing experience. Everyone desiring to work from home, and acquire really good pay week after week, this is for you WorkOvertMedia570/LynwoodReport…

  • Geese Howard

    “priority is user experience” <- Nice catchphrase and marketing slogan :)

  • Recycle Bin

    Please Add App Lock option on recent app…….
    Because….it is announing…..
    when clear all app……it also close #Music app…… :(

  • Recycle Bin

    Add startup sound……

  • Jan Panajotović

    I hope the update comes soon, idk why r people complaining so mutch abour the UI, I like the old one better, just hope sony adds manual focus and shutter speed

  • Jan Panajotović

    If anyone has nougat on z5b premium, can you change the quality to 4k or quad hd, or is it just full hd?

  • LocalPatriot

    And pls add XZ themes.

  • Add Delete option for each call log …..

  • Please add Night Light feature…….

  • Gahead

    Hmm, I don’t have any complains about battery life in my Xperia Z5 Compact so is my other friends using Z5 and Z5Premium here in the Philippines, in fact it has been improve! More efficient than lollipop, I got 4-5hours of screen on time for about 1day+ of standby without charge, my only complain is the speakers bug especially when I’m playing my Hi resolution music 24bit/44-96khz flac. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/654d0fbbfabd369b1cfd7cdda1db8f193bf12626c3a4b15e08b466bf72057d48.png https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/15c0fddcbfd1e566dd73bd5c4236a99ddc0859f1b798ca4b9d97ab9094d40dd8.png https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1403a6ab4a57cdbcd37f5662a17eb4ac65d078b8cc8c4975973d4b9776988f36.png

  • SONY only

    XZ themes are ugly

  • LocalPatriot

    This is subjective.

  • Farhan Ansari

    Please add bootloader like Xperia xz and even UI…..nougat update should look like unique please add these features

  • John Walker

    Why, its not x its z series. I dont want it. I am not ashamed of z series

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Well for as long as the update is bug free I guess I can wait a couple of more weeks before enjoying nougat on my z4 tablet :)

  • Emil Oskarsson

    No thank you, why would anyone want to have an annoying startup sound? XD

  • Domus

    I’m so confident that Sony undertakes to release a working version of firmware..because no Manual mode on camera and touch screen issues are a serious problem for me. If focused on users, Sony can not go wrong. User’s experiences for a company are the lifeblood of business improvement, in my opinion.

    So, I prefer wait, and have a stable and fully functional release on my Z3+

  • Stefcon

    Interestingly one of the highest battery consumers is “idle” mode. I googled it and found some threads giving 3 solutions (did all 3 of them, now I have to test):

    1.) Turn off adaptive brightness in screen settings
    2.) Don’t use sd-card (or only as storage and not for apps etc.)
    3.) Reset all app permissions.

    Let’s see….

  • Bashar Shehab

    They won’t. It’s for Concept Software as of now, maybe after the good response form community, they will add it later.

  • Piponxs

    What about “fingerprint hardware not availible” for unlocked bootloader users?

  • Bashar Shehab

    What’s the temperature?

  • Bashar Shehab

    There are no Vulkan games yet. Other than NFS NL that only supports the S7.

  • Piponxs

    Dont unlock it you will face big prolems later because sonny doesnt support UB users

  • Sami Karem
  • Sami Karem

    Sometimes shouting screen colors faded. Z5 premium?

  • razorg

    Z5’s boot animation is the worst since the beginning of the UNIVERSE though. A blankish white animation. Even if it was Z3’s blue “Playstaion”ish animation, I’d be delighted at this point…

  • Download this free theme for your xperia devices https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.earthone.webs.com

  • Download this free best theme for your xperia devices https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.earthone.webs.com

  • TALLO883

    it means you are not using mobile data right now. But if you turn the mobile data on, the X mark changes into LTE

  • Yes! Probably on 7.1

  • Sami Karem

    I know that. But no need for its existence

  • Moisés

    Z5 P is not the true 4K. Actually it has high ppi but stays Full HD and performs upscale of photos and videos to highest resolution as possible.
    A true 4K display would spend tons of energy , 3450 would never be enough.
    App do not run in 4K. Not even in 2K yet.

  • Moisés

    S6 has this, it even restarts after it overheats.

  • FELIPEACYDC

    I supouse that you dont play HIT or Vainglory. My condolences

  • iia3ezu

    So.. have they added a Korean keyboard?

  • Lorenzo Cianchelli

    Don’t say wrong things. The panel of z5p it’s 4k. Just forced to the full hd resolution for the home and other things. (also because android..before the 7 version didn’t support a layout of 4k. ) So only in the sony gallery and in the video sony gallery you have a real 4k render.

  • Arash

    it’s Z Ultra sony doesn’t support it anymore. so I want to flash an android 7 costum ROM on it

  • Moisés

    Many website are saying no other phones can use snapdragon 835 before S8. Samsung is helping Qualcomn with the 10nm process.
    G6 probably has to use the 821.

    Hope the X Premium comes only in September.. So it can use the best of Qualcomm.

  • Sigma

    It depends on Customization. Different regions have different icon styles.

  • Moisés

    That is what I say, most of time it works as full hd and does upscale for photos and videos..

    When I say true 4K, would be 100% of time like tvs do.

  • Omer

    Please add manuel camera controls to new 7.0 update SONY. If you really prioritize the user experience you should add this functions like XZ. Also this should work properly. What I mean is that ISO and shutter speed should work together not like the XZ.

  • rus_media

    Same thing is happening to me. Always Sim 1 with this cross. But I can make calls.

  • Sami Karem

    It is not to express SIM card connected to the Internet. But no need for its existence

  • Sami Karem
  • Moisés

    Mine has android 5 still…
    Even when I use wifi and mobile data is off the 3G or 4G symbol is up there.

  • Tochi Nwodu

    Hahaha

  • chrnodroid

    Samsung has paid the Khronos Group for obtain Vulkan drivers on S7 only.
    Thanks to Vulkan, S7 is the most powerful device for certain games and certain benchmark. Simply. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

  • chrnodroid

    I want the PlayStation One startup sound. So vintage and cool!

  • Stefcon

    still an issue. I have it sometimes. Turning on/off the device helps usually.

  • Bashar Shehab

    I actually don’t. Thanks for correcting me, I’ll send these games to Concept developers because that will speed things up.

  • James Neuburger Gaston

    I had it on my Z1… Once I turned my phone on during a class, it was at maximum volume and I had recently installed a mod for making the speakers louder… The PS One sound echoed all over the college >.<

  • Vahid Sanati

    this icon is more confusing than it’s absense. When you look quickly to the signal bars you can’t tell if you’re connected to the data or not and you have to look again and see oh it’s the cross icon!!

  • Piponxs

    Then forget your fingerprint sensor, xreality , macro focus and camera brightness

  • Dilipkumar

    Its roaming symbol
    if ur inside the roaming city means it ll cum lik “x”
    If ur enabled roaming in outer area it ll symbols lik “R”

  • Vahid Sanati

    the icon is not needed for roaming either. with no icon it means all normal. When there is data or roaming there can be icons.

  • yopo

    sony ADD the full manual controls camera!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • iArvee

    Flash the DRM fix. Did you save your TA? You can restore TA and that should solve it.

  • iArvee

    It’s already there.

  • iArvee

    The DRM fix restores fingerprint, xreality, etc.

  • jokamutta

    Give Z5 users Nougat already! :(

  • Piponxs

    Nah, if someone wants stock rom after UB its impossible, because obvious you need root for flashnig it in recovery so its not stock anymore, and there is no drm fix for 7.0

  • RedGhost05

    Anybody else having a little, almost unnoticeable, black spot while taking photos on the Xperia XZ? Like this https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/90dd70d73182b738234670ee87960eed3c9ac75cfecf15180982b27d4ec66b09.jpg

  • Dilipkumar

    Wat u sayin
    V nt get anything lik that

  • Moisés

    Does it happen when yiu take photos of anything else?

  • Samar Vaishampayan

  • Anibal Evora

    As some third party camera apps suggest, if you want to have manual controls on your device (at least enabled for third party use) you have to pressure your device’s manufacturer to enable them.. So, if you really, really want them, you need to make some kind of petition with enough people to show Sony that you – Z5 family users – want those features on your phone while they still support it..
    But I personally doubt that they would go to the trouble of doing such a thing because they always want you to buy the newest phone for the newest features (regardless of company).. but you could try ;P

  • iArvee

    Lol. :D It’s possible. I’m on stock and UB.
    1. You don’t need root for recovery or to flash anything.
    2. The DRM fix for MM works on N.

    It’s all on XDA.

  • Poppovic

    I’ve been working for this online provider 24 months now, and just received my first 5 figure salary this week! I am so thrilled to share this program with you so you can test it as well. They only want fundamental knowledge of internet and ability to type and organize data! Keep reading here…

    But the screen is still 4K so the energy consumption is the same, you still have to light all those pixels.

    The GPU consumption is probably lower though

  • RedGhost05

    Yes, just when taking photos with the rear camera app. Before the last XZ update, that spot wasn’t there. I am asking because I want to know if is a software issue or I have to take my phone to tech support.

  • Daniel Johanzon

    Is really skeptical that Sony gives priority fellet on Android 7.0 when it takes such a fucking time for them to send it out in the Act! waiting for my Z5 compact !!!!
    it takes more than a week then you know, but I hope you get the update of the week!
    damn ran on Sony !

  • Fischbrötchen

    Over the air updates always take their time to reduce load serverside and also to catch bugs before everyone got the update (like this time). Depending on provider and country it can take over a week to receive the update, after the rollout has started. I didn’t get nougat either when it was available for 3 days (I’m in Germany, no branding/contract). I hope they will restart rollout next week or so.

  • Moisés

    Did you check if the cam glass is clean?
    It could be just dirt this dark spot

  • Sigma

    When the problem is identified, you have to find the root cause, develop a working solution, test it, recertify software, push it back to servers. The 2-3 weeks for relaunch should be considered fast (In very optimistic timeline – the first solution works, no other bugs identified),

    There was an ota “client” update that said it was required for other software to update this morning… Perhaps that was the fix to allow the roll out to restart

    Just updated it. I did not notice anything changes. The file size is just 5.4MB.

    Hey Guys it’s not a build update. It’s just an update for software update app. File size 5.2 Mb

  • rus_media

    For sure, you are wrong. Sony used their “SOON” word adain.

  • rus_media

    My update option is automatic with wifi. May be that’s why didn’t noticed that. But when I checked the update history, it only shows my last update was in 21st January.

  • indianmeister

    Just got the update too, without changelog or anything…

  • Samar Vaishampayan

  • razorg

    The “Software Update” section, that we go to in “Settings”, is itself a Sony app too. It’s now and then updated like this.

  • Marius Valentino

    8 days to fix a damn update with minor bugs come on sony! now the users who already updated to Nougat we are stucked with bugs and low volume sound.And noo I don’t want to use flashtool or other stuffs to fix the phone by myself because it is not the user’s fault!

  • Ates

    You are right man! 8 days….

  • Ates

    The same update on old xperia Z 5.1.1. What was that…who knows?!?!?

  • Jake

    Uhm, so, exactly how often do you have to see this boot animation? Is your battery that bad?

  • Marius Valentino

    and still counting because I bet will take way more then that.Hope they bring us 7.1.1 directly in order to make the users happy:) but it won’t happen as we all know.

  • Jake

    The cross means you are using just one of the two radios. This is a feature of 7 where by you can only have one radio using LTE and the other looks like it is COMPLETELY off. If you can switch on both radios, the other will be using 1g while the one that has no x will be running at LTE.

  • Ates

    I think sony don’t deliver 7.1.1 before 7.0 bug fix…but sony always have problem with low sound on ringtones. That was from 6.0 and now the same problem on 7.0. What’s going on sony?!?!? Come on… wake up…

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    Yes and it is updated before every major update rollout.

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    Now Asus holds back nougat update —http://indianexpress.com/article/technology/mobile-tabs/asus-puts-android-7-0-nougat-update-for-zenfone-3-on-hold-4486255/

  • Sigma

    5-8 working days is needed for certification and upload to servers. The rest is need for finding a cause, fixing and testing. Identifying a bug is not even a half of way. You need to find the source of problem before patching.

  • razorg

    It doesn’t matter how often I see that animation, man! It was already very good on Z3. Why would you make it intentionally worse in the next iteration of the device and again improve it on the next device after that and won’t improve it on the middle device. That’s my point…

    I seriously think they should just concentrate on getting nougat 7.1.1 out PROPERLY without bugs instead of just rushing to get 7.0 out so they can mess it up again. seriously their phone app is garbage this time around. oh didn’t they say something about aiming to get 7.1.1 out before everyone else? they’re lucky if they aren’t the last one to get 7.1.1 out by now.

  • Actman

    Patience is a virtue. How do you know if SDT is adding some new ‘features’ for the Z5 family? Don’t judge too quickly. Wait till it releases and we shall comment right after.

  • Shaf Sadiyan

    I updated my Z3+ to Nougat as soon as I received the update OTA. But I can see now why Sony has pulled the update. I’ve noticed severe battery drain in my phone, when I go n check what’s been using my battery, it shows a big percentage to phone idle. Also there’s a problem with switching bluetooth on and off and also the phone is heating up faster. I sincerely hope Sony irons these problems out when they restart the Nougat update.

  • Dilipkumar

    Sony is the last to recieve nougat for their devices :-(

  • chrnodroid

    Z6
    Z6 Premium

    no compact version, because X Compact

    imho. Z series is the very top gamma.

  • iArvee

    Jake has a point though. When I first flash a new ROM, I’ll be restarting often for the first few days (after rooting and installing mods), but after that I only restart once every few days.

    Boot animation is not that bad. I have the White Z5 Compact, so it goes well with it. :)

  • iArvee

    I’d say try turning off Charging optimization, but it doesn’t really help much.

  • iArvee

    Nice! Do you have charging optimization turned on?

  • Moisés

    Z is dead. C and M too.

  • NinJy

    The issue is not Sony who have probably already fixed the bug, it’s all the fucking certification process after.
    Same shit for all vendor.

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    I am not expierencing this problem with my z3+. Overheating issue persists with camera though.

  • Marius Valentino

    patience is a virtue and you can wait forever with these kind of updates I hope you are right and I’m wrong but they won’t do anything else more for the users then fixing the bugs that they already have

  • Marius Valentino

    And how much can take a certification? Just wondering:-/

  • Gahead

    Nope, and that’s so weird here in Nougat,I can obtain much efficient battery usage w/o stamina mode compared when it’s still in Lollipop, don’t know about Marshmallow since I jump right ahead from Lollipop;
    Stamina mode sucks!!, it reduces the overall performance, if you switch to Device Performance. the gaming performance will suffer excluding general usage performance.

  • Musharab

    XEPERIA’S BATTERY ICON used to be the Best among all smartphones. I wish they return with previous Battery Icon (Horizontal Battery with % inside)

  • iArvee

    Thanks for the feedback! I was wondering if I should turn charging optimization off since I heard that you get less battery life, but judging from your feedback I no longer have to turn it off. :D

  • Gahead

    People should move on regarding the Z-series, Z5 IS THE FINAL Z-SERIES! how many times people would inform them? Maybe that’s the reason Sony named the XZ, “XZ!!” to know you guys the X-series is the new era for the Xperia’s.

  • Gahead

    For some people yes, I think it depends on some Z5 series users, because here in our country (Philippines) some users experienced an improve battery life while others worst, that’s why I recommend them to factory reset then update through PC companion and factory reset again 2 times.

  • chrnodroid

    Dead? XD Didn’t you never try a Z model?
    The quality of the material is clearly better. X series are good, but not like Z.
    X series, especially X and X Performance are sperimental.
    XZ is a hybrid tentative.
    Z6 is coming bro.

  • rus_media

    My Software update is showing that current version is Nougat 7.0. And next update is also Nougat 7.0.

  • Piponxs

    Battery is terrible on 7.0
    From 100% to 20% in less then 9 hours
    Screen 40%
    Phone10%
    Rest ussage less then 5%

  • Dilipkumar
  • Moisés

    I have a z4..

    When I say Z is dead, means Sony has moved on..
    X is the thing now.
    No C6, M6 nor Z6 ….

    X will be around until at least end of 2018.

    Sony made a good money with z2, z3 and z3 compact. They were better than others.
    Today people give more importance to powerful CPU and GPU for games and high display resolution.

    They forget Sony provide easy and good experience. High audio quality. Great cameras.

    HTC is great too, like Sony they offer great products but charge high prices for that.
    People end up with cheap chinese phones instead. Those phones that offer nothing but powerful chipset.

  • Andrea

    yeahhhhhhhh, is better

  • Max Frauendorfer

    Nope – was turned off. This was not causing the problem

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    Had enough of update nonsense with samsung and sony. Nokia might be saviour. Nokia never had such problems with updates ( agreed 6-10 years back updates were very small/ non existent). But whatever software they had on their phones was bug free.

  • kailas

  • shan04

    when NOUGAT will be released on sony z5 families???? or no plan to gave us this feature, bcoz theres new sony x and xz xa family added. :(

  • 3_nity

    Agreeee

  • razorg

    The “cancelled” Nougat update for Z5, with build number 32.3.A.0.372, is finally seen on Xperia Open Source Archive. I guess problems have been finally sorted, and the update might come in the upcoming few days.

    http://developer.sonymobile.com/downloads/xperia-open-source-archives/

  • Ates

    Update coming on monday 30.1. 100%…but firmware fix…question is big!!!!????

  • Noor Ahmed

    Just because an app failed to detect properly does not mean that its not 23MP. Why don’t you just take a picture with 23MP mode and see yourself its resolution from image properties to confirm.

  • Noor Ahmed

    Battery is great for me after clean flash compared to MM, may be you have something in background draining. Install betterbatterystats app and see what is consuming, then share with Sony to fix as this can be user/region specific or could be some third party stuff who knows.

  • Dilipkumar

    What u mean?

  • Ates

    Because, if that the repairs carried to another label like 32.3.A.0.4xx

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    U can install sony sleep partner.

  • babylonbwoy

    It’s a matter of premium feel, even if you see it only once it is important in the overall result.

  • Dilipkumar

    Still update not recieved mab

  • Ates

    Update coming on the rest of the day.

  • Musharab

    No Update Yet, Let them take another one month. We want a highly polished Firmware.

  • rus_media

    Means your 100% sure news was fake.

  • CaptainPure

    Also bring back note into small apps, visual playback on music player, add pobox touch feature on keyboard, fix dtcp-ip info unvailable(unknown error), cannot LTE only network for some provider, low volume on 3 party music apps, add feature to set active cores on cpu because 4 cores always sleep, and fix other bugs like android web sys is disable, if all this problem fixed z5 user must be happy im pretty sure #userexpispriority

  • Musharab

    No, Mine is working fine. E6683 Z5 Dual (India)

  • Musharab

    Brother, I checked that….That one might have skipped the eyes of Sony Engineers. Build Number will never be the same once it is reseeded. Build Number will be Higher.

  • gs17052000

    Nougat has never pulled from Saudi Arabia

  • rus_media

    Mine is ok.

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    What? Why?

  • rus_media

    4:30 hours left of 31st January. Hope you are alive.

  • gs17052000

    I don’t know why but Saudi Arabia might have skipped the eyes of Sony.

  • Ates

    Update is coming…alive man rus_media! Saudi Arabia was the first!

  • rus_media

    My phone is from “Android Mena Arabic” regions. Means It will be the first. And I really don’t know who’s giving you those information.

  • Ates

    Better for you…z5 compact now receiving nougat…next is Z5…Z3+…best regards man

  • Goran

    I guess that problem with Nougat is huge, more than Sony told us, because there is still no update

  • rus_media

    Build number please…

  • rus_media

    Don’t tel me me that they are getting version 32.3.A.0.372 which I already have with bugs.

  • rus_media

    CPU-Z showing that my both A53 and A57 cores runs at 1.5ghz and core 5,6,7,8 are always stopped.

    P.S: Can I talk to an admin about spreading fake news?

  • Musharab

    I guess that’s the reason for slow action from Xperia Z5

  • SeVeMaS

    Why I’m not surprised?

  • Jose Antonio Almeida Madrazo

    There is a “software update *… The update before Firmware Update.. I swear

  • Musharab

    It’s just some update not Nougat Update. I just checked it.

  • rus_media

    Still you are hiding. I wish you had a pinocchio nose.

  • Paul L

    If it means an update that actually restores my battery life, I’ll take a delay. Since upgrading to Marshmallow 32.2.A.5.11, my battery lasts less than a day. I used to get a day and a half; sometimes two if I restricted my usage. Google bangs on about improving battery life with each update, but I’ve never experienced an improvement.

  • Strudel

    Common Sony!! Now it’s starting to take to long!! unless you’re going to give us Nougat 7.1.1 directly!! My Z5 is waiting for his update!!!

  • razorg

    Exactly. By releasing a stable/optimised 7.1.1 instead of 7.0, they can at least even out the “poor support” they’d been giving us since day 1, and restore our, Z5 users’, faith in Sony….

  • FYLegend21

    Support staff still says they’re working on it, the same statement as before… https://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia-Z5-Z5-Compact-Z5-Premium/Problem-With-update/td-p/1199006

  • Musharab

    Only 4 cores working(A53) remaining 4 Cores (Cortex A57) Always stoped and still Baterry Dains like hell. Sony has really dumped this Z Series Champ “XPERIA Z5”. Phone Idle eating 25% always. Has tried fresh installations and No third party apps installed. Nougat for Z5 from Sony is too much carelessly baked. Hate Lost trust in Sony Mobile division for giving such bad software and also for acting so insensitive towards Z series flagships……!!

  • fried_egg

    Do we think this snafu release is taking so long to recommence because Sony has decided to junk it and move to a newer 7.x.x release?

  • razorg

    I seriously hope so, but knowing that Sony especially hates Z5, I doubt we will get a newer version. It will probably be a patched 7.0 :(

  • Raul

    No. It will be 7.0 versión, for sure. Same thing happens years ago with moto g.

  • tjtkdtjr

    Xperia™ Z5 Premium Dual (E6833) gets the firmware version “32.3.A.0.376” for “Customized MEA” now. Is this android 7.0?
