  • SM

    any news for c4, c5 & m4 for nougat?

  • Dennis

    hmmm that’s a bit disappointing in terms of functionallity when you look at the major jump in firmware number 32.3.A.0.378 -> 32.3.A.2.33. I tought i would maybe be android 7.1

  • Antwnis

    What is the big difference for you if it sais 7 or 7.1…? Is that so important…?

  • fried_egg

    What about the wifi issues, where the Z5 does not hold on to a signal and does not refresh when moving from place to place – instead still lists the previous locations available wifi and can not be manually refreshed. Or the battery drain which may be being caused by wifi not being stable.

  • Antwnis

    It is supposed to fix the touch sensitivity too. I wish they would dissapear that x on the signal bar when data is off! I thought sim card was missplaced at the begining !!

  • Gion Ken

    it doesn’t fix my phone low sound playback on youtube and any other third-parties video/audio apps, although incoming call sound is still remain as low even i turn it to maximum volume. Vice versa, top speaker is more loud than bottom speaker, bad than before update!!

  • Dennis

    Always nice to have new and better functionalities.. My phone is working great with 7.0 minus the sound bug, so hopefully that one is fixed.
    but usually sony doesn’t use a big step in firmware number for just a security update

  • Antwnis

    It is not just a security update mate

  • Jairo Ramirez

    Anyone has tested if the bluetooth avrcp problem has been fixed with this update? I’m talking about the bug introduced in Nougat that makes that track info not being sent to connected devices like car audio system.

  • Dennis

    we will see what is fixed..

  • alishayzadag

    You need to reset your phone. I’ve never had these issues.

  • theskig

    My Z5p is stuck at august 2016 :)

    (Yes I know there is flashtool)

  • What about the H.265 Playback with HW+ on MX Player ????

  • marlowe007

    What about the Apt-x bug? With Nougat update the message showing this connection has disappeared. I don’t know if its always enabled…or disabled..

  • fried_egg

    you might be right… but the sony mobile help forum is full of threads on the wifi / battery issues since 7.0 (and the xda one has some solutions for rooted phones) : seems some people got hit hard, some didnt.

  • Nebojša

    I noticed that Sound is now louder and stable.

  • Gregory See

    It is still the same old crap. Somehow the volume on the bottom speaker is still weaker than the upper one. The call log history is still lag like hell. Other than issuing the March security patch and a newer version of the home launcher, I didn’t notice any changes on this phone. Still remains the same bored fu*king old UI, No new lockscreen, no M-S-C for the camera, no battery care and no smart cleaner either.

  • Liam Burke

    I dont have that issue, do you have it when using the default Music app?

  • MyLive

    Does anybody has alarm bug? Like showing wrong alarm time, even if we didn’t set an alarm? It resolved every time I restart the phone, but then it happened again every single time.. Kind annoying.. Z5dual here..

  • Moisés

    No notification here.. At least I do not have battery nor sound issues..
    Mine is the. 376

  • Moisés

    No.. I believe they are done.. E5 too.
    Not even XA has 7.0 yet

  • Vahid Sanati

    slow image rendering seems to be improved with this update. but still far away from marshmallow!

  • Musharab

    Bugs Still There
    1. Laggy Dialer
    2.Slow Image Rendering (Album Bug)

    SONY Please Fix them….!! Believe, You can

  • Musharab

    Do you have Laggy Dialer
    and
    Slow Image Rendering (Album Bug)

  • Robert Montoya

    It’s been 4 months and my z5 premium still hasn’t got nougat!!! WTF even Russia did, how can the country of origin be last on the list

  • go to the offical forums

  • Eduardo Otero

    I hate that x when data is off but I’m sure it is from Nougat I had seen it before in others andoid phones and now it came to Sony too.

  • Eduardo Otero

    Yeah, I always reset the phone before any update and I never had seen mayor bugs well at least my phone works pretty right.

  • 3_nity

    Still no Nougat update here in Indonesia for Xperia Z3+ Dual. Maybe Sony just forgetting we here.

  • Ichsan Rismunandar

    http://imgur.com/ui5PHiy

    Pretty sure it’s something our distributor’s doing. Try flashing into different country’s firmware. Fortunately for me, I’m using a variant from Taiwan and already got the update today.

  • 3_nity

    I think in this case the fault is not in the distributor, but Sony.

  • For C4, C5 and M4, Marshmallow is the last.

  • Ichsan Rismunandar

    Pretty bold statement there. You “surely” understand how OTA update works.

  • Objectif

    Update today via ota.

  • Eduardo Otero

    Well mate I would NOT expect Z5 series to get a new Android version before XZ, X Performance, X and X Compact.

  • Moisés

    Dialer and Album are fine..
    Front cam is faster.
    Keyboard was weird a few days after updating. After reset the phone it is normal

    I do not deny speakers were louder on Lollipop. But since MM they were a bit weaker.
    I mean without earphones.

    Cpu Z all cores are 1,56 GHz.. 4 are disabled. Antutu score was 81645 on 5.0.2 , 85900 on 6.0.1 and 86100 on 7.0

    What bothers me is the % of battery remaining is no longer inside the icon. Also the Stamina has its own icon… It is ugly.

  • IMWXA

    My Z5P(no carrier – Germany) is still with 32.3.A.0.376. Nothing yet (OTA/ XPERIA Companion).

  • IMWXA

    What model and country please.

  • supercow

    My z3+ dual is still stuck with 32.2.A 0.305 no nougat at all….

  • Objectif

    Z5 (6653) russia firmware.

  • which country???

  • Ates

    You are lucky my is on marshmallow 6.0.1. customized UK…region where is promote Z3+ series

  • Antwnis

    Me too so I updated with flashtool, got customized RU an today got this new update!

  • yopo

    and me? :( i was the first to say it!

  • Sound is fixed( but i’d like more bass sound before this update)

  • so you expected all that from 180mb update?

    really, even after first nougat update, you saw that we didnt get X UI, and you are still expecting that?

    also, volume is now fixed for me, and honestly, what is that big difference that X UI has comparing to this one from the Z5?

    smart cleaner, really? you really need that?

  • Sunrise
  • Emil Oskarsson

    I have the z4 tablet and x performance and there’s no huge difference between the x UI and the old latest z UI…. Be glad you still have small apps I miss that feature!!

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Awesome to see March security patches for the old latest z devices aswell! :)

  • Prince Mensah

    Yup….my Z3+ dual hasn’t got Nougat and now this update comes along……*sigh*

  • Charlie

    Hi! I got the update via OTA. Software version: Latin America (Generic), costumization 1298-7308 Model E6603.
    I’ll test it out to check any changes or improvements.

  • Prince Mensah

    Maybe it’s just Sony’s way of telling us we won’t be getting Android O…..I sure hope not….lol

  • Prince Mensah

    Me too…..let’s meet up for drinks and continue to whine about this issue….lol…..
    Proud Z3+ dual user here….no update tho…lol

  • mugglearchitect

    what do you mean reset? can you walk me through this? thanks

  • mugglearchitect

    i havent received my nougat update yet :(

  • mugglearchitect

    how do i flash a firmware different from mine? thanks

  • Robert Montoya

    China, that’s where all phones come from, but I don’t see ntt docomo , SoftBank or kddi au having the update yet either.

  • ben bleho

    installed 32.3.A.2.33 today on my z5c (1298-5167 R2D). It is Android 7.0, not 7.1
    Patchlevel is march 1. 2017. Phone runs fast and snappy, there seem to be no regressions.

    The telefon app sometimes still stutters when scrolling. If you dislike this, just install True Phone, which reminds you, what smooth scrolling means.

  • Carls Alvin

    Hey, with this update the pokemon go hack does not works, someone can help?

  • Charlie

    Hi! I got the update via OTA. Software version: Latin America (Generic), costumization 1298-7308 Model E6603. The phone feels snappier and the battery seems to last longer with WiFi on, using Spotify and watching some YouTube videos. So far so good. My guess is we will have to wait a little bit more to get 7.1.1 on the Z line. But hey! At least Sony is trying.

  • Eduardo Otero

    I mean make a backup of your data user then delete it all before update. On settings > Backup and reset you’ll find options to do it and and click on Factory data reset to end. as an advise I try to backup the less data possible

  • Should I worry that if I try to update with this I could COMPLETELY LOSE the use of my 3.5mm headset port (like what happened to quite a few Xperia Z5 Premiums after the last Nougat Update?)

  • Charlie

    My headphone jack works perfectly fine. Although my phone is an Xperia Z5 (5.2″ version), not a Z5 Premium. So right now, this update seems OK. Maybe another user with other models can share their experiences.

  • Moisés

    XZ Premium slot… Flap looks big. I believe it is not hybrid..
    I can not believe none was curious enough at MWC to open it and see that…

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/da11aec7d3bf8aad17bc3ddafa30eea3e37a954d2bf843c1aa43fe709d14147b.jpg

  • Ali Manai

    Recieved the update fixed all audio peoblems though volume from third party apps in headphpones is still low

  • Why do you want to hack Pokemon GO? It’s just a game, and also Niantic BANS you cold if they catch you cheating or something.

  • I have LG TonePro HBS-760 neck-band earphones. They still sound alright after I updated my Z5P to Nougat, I can only assume that Apt-X is STILL working because I can tell the difference if I used a lesser device which does not support Apt-X (ie. less clear detail, some muddiness in bass…)

  • For one thing, 7.1 NATIVELY supports long-press-to-app-shortcuts (You could gerrymander and get those shortcuts to appear with Nova Launcher, but that’s not the same thing, as there still apps which won’t show shortcuts on Nova but would on native 7.1)

    Also, “performance improvements to touch and display,” and “night light.”

  • Zaki

    yippy!! loud speaker it’s ok now (audio problem)

    call log not that smooth, but it’s better than before, you’ll find little hiccups there
    but not laggy as hell (as before)
    image rendering seems still slow

  • Dilipkumar

    Hello sony!!!

    Still i am facing image rendering time issue:::
    Its take more seconds to view a image in sharper quality.

    When will u fix this ???

  • Jinux

    I have E6683 and I haven’t even received first Nougat yet, I am with Fido in Canada.

  • alishayzadag

    You better update first, then backup, reset and restore.

  • Eduardo Otero

    I have thought about it many times. Could you please tell me what difference that would do?

  • yomama

    Just got it. Z5 compact. USA.

  • not sure if this is similar to smart cleaner, but after nougat most of my running apps got closed automatically by the OS after a period of inactivity anyway

  • Ichsan Rismunandar
  • Attila Golik
  • Musharab

    No official Word regarding New things in 32.3.A.2.33. March 2017 Google security patches included and some people are claiming to have experienced better audio. (May be Audio Issue is fixed).

    I confirm about the following problems remains unsolved after 32.3.A.2.33.

    1. Lags in Phone app scrolling up and down. Makes a very basic app very annoying.
    2. Constant Battery Drain (Phone Idle consumes 20%-25%)
    3. Images getting sharper with some delay (10-12 seconds) in Album app…Not at all expected from a Flagship.

  • Musharab

    I am afraid Never

  • Dilipkumar

    Xperia blog!!!! Pls move the issue to sony team to fix earlier

  • fried_egg

    i cant do a reset every time the o/s updates because android pay, other nfc bank apps & other secure apps then require me contacting the various banks to re-register the applicable cards again… it takes ages and is really annoying to do.

  • fried_egg

    i guess you don’t use nfc banking apps or android pay… which require contacting each bank to set up all the cards again.

  • Night Guy

    What is slow image rendering?

  • Actman

    Nope it wasn’t fixed. Try to do an audio review on YouTube, if you insist your firmware is running in a super customary mode. For me, I’m still experiencing the lower volume on the bottom speaker, laggy call log history and slow image sharpening.

  • razorg

    Have you ever done a repair with Xperia Companion since the Nougat release? Sone people have been saying that they do not have these issues you’re listing.

  • Damodar Reddy

    Yes.. when open sony Album taking long time to open images and very very slow when you scroll down… sony has to work more and more on fixing issues.

  • Damodar Reddy

    Yes.. I completely agree with Musharab, Sony not doing good.

  • Damodar Reddy

    Better don’t update…. sony not properly working on software optimization… sony not doing good in terms of software update specially for Z serious. Sony looks like ignoring Z series.

  • Actman

    How about yours razorg? Does repairing solve those problems on your Z5C?

  • christere

    With “conctact” you mean that it is not enough to go to the bank’s webpage and fix it from there? That is how it is for me. I don’t like it sure, but it is worth it to get a handset that works.

  • fried_egg

    my various bank cards all require actually ringing and identifying… perhaps because one is a private bank… dunno. for whatever reason authorisation is a phonecall & actually talking to people.

  • Antwnis

    I only have the first problem. Try xperia companion bro.

  • Noble Akan

    Constant Battery Drain (Phone Idle consumes 20%-25%)

  • Stergios Papoutsoglou

    I agree that small x is really annoying

  • Sree Ganesh

    Even i didnt get the update, thanks to xperia companion, it showed the update and i updated

  • anubhav kumar

    Call history still laging and some time dialer stuck at black screen and not make call until the device is restarted

  • I only have problems with my SmartBand and replying SMS through the notification badge.

  • razorg

    I haven’t done a XC repair on my Z5C after I updated to .376 Nougat, and had been waiting for the next update, and I guess it is time now :D I just need Sony to release the update for my region (Customised UK) now so I can do a XC repair. I’ll make sure to report back here, but I don’t expect to get the update before this day next week (it usually takes 1-1.5 weeks for the update to be released in UK).

  • Night Guy

    Just noticed it is now faster and consistent each time opening album app through camera app.

  • Musharab

    I always prefer that…..Every time Even for Small System updates too.

  • Musharab

    When any Image is Opened in Album it takes 8-12 seconds for sharpening. Initially it looks blurry when Zoomed then after 8-12 seconds it becomes sharper.

  • Musharab

    Can you share your Device Model ??

  • Bryan Grobmann

    Waiting for Customized BR :)

  • alishayzadag

    Your old backup (including apps, settings) is usually not supported by the latest version especially with major updates and your phone better optimizes itself when reset after the update.

  • rus_media

    Its taking long to readying SD card with every start after the update.

  • Tam Ngo

    The Xperia did NOT come from China. It’s Japanese. It’s only manufactured there in China.

  • Tam Ngo

    Well, if you don’t want to do a proper restore on your device which would fix the issues you have, than do continue using your phone in said janky manner. No update from Sony is going to fix issues that exist because of a consumer’s unwillingness to properly restore their device.

  • Moisés

    Z3+ dual

  • Venkatasurya Prakash

    Anyone frm India got this update OTA..??

  • SM

    any confimation link?

  • SM

    XA will get it sooner or later though

  • Marco91

    I have the same problem on my Z5 Dual

  • Noble Akan
  • Eduardo Otero

    Thanks mate!

  • Robert Montoya

    You knew what I meant , you can infer it for my mentioning of Japan, you’re just being arbitrary to be a jerk. Manufactured means originated from, they’re synonymous.

  • Tam Ngo

    If you think I can confuse “Made in China” to mean the same as “Designed in China” like you, you’re sorely mistaken.

  • Zayed Kotayba

    Oh yes that problem is annoying but I think this is how SONY bravia/reality engine works because I’ve had this problem since Xperia arc/T/Z5P and I think the XZ is no exception (Or maybe someone with XZ device could tell us if this problem is not ocuring with newer devices?).

  • Israel Xabregas

    Can I use a Z5 Single ROM on the Z5 Dual?
    When I used Z3 it was possible.

  • Israel Xabregas

    Wait a lot

  • Franco De Jeffs

    still no update?

  • Franco De Jeffs

    Not getting Nougat? I have Z5 dual?

  • Franco De Jeffs

    Will i get mid April?

  • Brenda Taylor

    US did not either. Does anyone know why?

  • Musharab

    Not Recommended…

  • Musharab

    Yes, I got. Updated on 30 March, 5PM

  • Mateus B. Cassiano

    GSM Arena already have pictures of the tray, but from the single SIM variant only:

  • honestly, i didnt have that problem even after first time updating from mm to nougat. i only had this issue with the lower sound volume, which is fixed now thank God.

    caller log history it is a bit laggy, but i am always using searchin button, so i do not complain. slow image sharpening in album app, i can agree with you on that, but i think it is more on the app itself problem, i dont know why they dont fix this.

  • Mateus B. Cassiano
  • Sagar More

    Ya..that’s true i guess.

  • Noble Akan
  • Noble Akan

    Constant battery drain when phone was idle

  • Moisés

    Interesting… Must be dual + sd

  • abhay maharjan

    Fly gps not working since the update serious problem for pokemon go

  • Venkatasurya Prakash

    For z3+ or z5..??

  • Actman

    Okie specifically I never encountered any problem with the sound from my stored videos or music. And no mistake, from the day 0.372 was commenced. However the rhythm was fallacious enough if it happens when you’re playing media either from a third party app such as YouTube, Spotify or etc… You may probably not quite understand of what I was trying to emphasize here, but you may try to download a media be it a video or music from YouTube – store it to your phone – plays it for a period – test the volume level for both stereo speakers – close that app – launch YouTube – play the exact same video/music which you stored on your phone earlier on (keep the exact volume settings) – do a comparison between the upper speaker and the bottom one (right closely to your ear) and tell if there is any difference. For me it’s darn obvious that the bottom speaker encountered less bass and volume. That’s what I observed so far.

  • Musharab

    Z5 Dual (E6683)

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    Nobody can understand Sony update policy, nougat still not released to all markets and newer updates keep getting released to market where nougat is already released. Pity those who still have not got nougat.

  • razorg

    Can anyone please upload the 32.3.A.2.33 Customised AU firmware for Z5 Compact (E5823) to Onedrive or Google Drive and post the link here? I’ve been trying to download it from Xperifirm since yesterday, but my s.ht ISP appears to have some connection problems with Xperifirm servers because it downloads so slowly, and usually gets interrupted… :(

  • Noble Akan
  • IMWXA

    Does anyone from Germany installed this update? All I get is : “Your device is up to date”.

  • razorg

    I finally downloaded the firmware via Xperifirm, but there are no ftf files in it. All of them are either sin or ta files. I’ve got the latest Flashtool ( 0.9.23.2 ) but it doesn’t see the firmware I downloaded :/ Can anyone please help me out?

  • Hayrettin KADINŞAH

    it looks normal. wait until 10%

  • fried_egg

    with google pushing for makers to do far more frequent o/s updates for things like the security patches… do you think the majority of users will think it “convenient” to have to set their phones up again and again – often taking an hour or so to do with android pay and other banking apps that require a phonecall to confirm some cards… people can’t be bothered to see if they need an umbrella for the day let alone want to do a clean install everytime a phone updates.

  • alishayzadag

    I too had this issue but with the first update. This update solved this for me. Reset is recommended for you.

  • razorg

    UPDATE! I’ve finally succeeded and installed Customized AU rom on my E5823. However, as I didn’t entirely believe in the integrity of the files I flashed, I wanted to let Sony reset it with the AU region update, via the Xperia Companion, but as soon as I initialized the “repair”, it said “the most up to date firmware version is 32.2.A.5.11” which is Marshmallow. Does anyone know why this is?

  • SamTroll

    Anybody knows something about Generic Global version of firmware (32.3.A.2.33, or any other for that matter ), does it includes more LTE bands and modifies the lte modem settings?

  • Tam Ngo

    Going from 6 to 7.0, you should wipe and install because it’s a major revision of the OS. Minor updates rarely require a wipe, but if you have issues while others don’t, then you should “repair” your device.

  • Griever

    just flashed Customized AU.

    Audio Loudness fixed
    Call Dialer and Stamina Mode still lags

  • Venkatasurya Prakash

    Have u got ota update for z3+India..??

  • Moisés

    So much better… I hate the slot used on Z phones .
    If you trim your nails, you can not pull sim cards out

  • ibrahim Ercan

    I have xperia z5 but i haven’t had a sound problem. Thanks to sony anyway for updates…

  • mehrdad ataee

    I have slow and laggy video playback for large files (more than 30 mins),
    only MXPlayer with SW decoder can play them
    but with HW decoder they are all laggy
    I have placed the movies on internal storage and have never had the issue
    on android 5 or 6, only on f@#$ing nougat.
    please tell this issue to SONY if you are the same as me, so they can hear us!

  • Benjamin Rodriguez

    Hi guys, 2 questions, Where can I download the files and can I install it on any version?

    I believe mine is chinese, can I install the latin america (Generic) on it?. I have an E6653 Z5

  • Ersan Cetin

    Hi all. I had a problem with my bluetooth. My smart watch (Gear S3) didn’t pair anymore with my Z5 Premium Dual. The first 7.0 update worked perfect with my phone. See no hope for a new release nearby. So will try to go back to the first 7.0 release (by the way my phone is set up Turkish but notifications comes in English)

  • David Hernandez

    I have problems when I open settings, then appear une message that it close and when open memory on settings i can see that all memory have been used, but i haven’t used my phone. only these bugs I can see in the new update but the rest continue normal , I think that my phone is more faster that .376 but I must see their funcionality in theses days, I have on z5c, I think that these bugs must be fixed !!!

  • Neha Kulkarni

    Yes I also have Same Issue
    I’m using z3+

  • Musharab

    Me too Experienced that issue.

  • mehrdad ataee

    You will regret!
    Marshmallow & Lollipop were best.

  • MJ

    Is it really that bad? They are rolling out minor updates though to fix the bugs. Atleast u already a Nougat User.

  • mehrdad ataee

    What’s the point of being a nougat user if it won’t gonna work properly?
    If you can stand these issues then you’ll be good to get nougat,
    1- slow and laggy dialer app,
    2- slow video playback on long files (around 1h video )
    3- battery drain,
    4- slow image loading in gallery app,
    plus more minor bugs.
    I’m on Android 7 because those issues have not convinced me yet to downgrade to 6 (don’t want to use a third party tool to downgrade and still hope Sony will fix em) but if they dont fix, then I’ll definitely switch to 6.

  • Ben Solomon

    Still waiting for Nougat on my Z3 Plus from Hong Kong.

  • Khush

    Anyone in the UK got nougat yet on an unlocked Z5. Doesn’t look like we are ever going to get it. According to my screenshot it’s not even in the pipeline, anyone else see this on theirs https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/df351f5d05ce9eb2d26b479a073f3ae8643820b6353c139395966e8d7356b942.png . My next phone will not be an Xperia, officially quit

  • Angel Vasquez
  • Attila Golik

    Still sucks, almost nothing fixed. Maybe the 7.1.1 will be better I hope …

  • razorg

    Dude, I know UK region gets the updates so slowly, but Nougat is live for both Z5/Z5 Compact/Z5 Premium, for all the generic versions and most of the branded versions too. You’re probably using a branded firmware. Where did you get it? I know because my Z5 Compact was from Three UK, so I flashed the Generic UK onto it, and despite this, even Three UK has Nougat rolling out for the past week or something. If you don’t like waiting, I recommend flashing Generic AU firmware, and you’ll be in the first region to get the update.

  • Farhan Ansari

    Is anyone got 2.33 update in india???…. M waiting….

  • Musharab

    Yes, Got it on 30 May, 5pm

  • Farhan Ansari

    I didn’t get it on z3 plus

  • Sten Cremers

    So like alot of us, I have terrible battery life (compared to marshmallow).
    So I got some time and willing to reset.

    So what would be the best way?

    Just factory reset and then flash latest firmware on top of that?

    I do not understand the way you are saying it…

    ”update first, then backup and then reset and restore” Please could you explain more clear what the correct process is according to you? :D

    Thanks in advance mate

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    Yes, use xperia companion

  • Sagar More

    No its ill take time to hit here in India…u can use Xperia Companion to update now.

  • Bell Tobin

    Sony.Pls release HK Android 7.0 update quickly.

    I have problem with my music files..when I listen my music, I convert my wma files to wave files and listen them. My audio settings has lost effects, but the mp3 files still normal,now I don’t know how to play them,I am afraid my phone is damaged.
    Thank you very much.

  • How you change software buttons?

  • arkgt

  • Rajurajesh

    My sony z5 premium e6833,after 1st march patch update my mobile hasn’t charging fast(quick charge supported).its charge dead slow.its takes nearly 4 hours without using the mobile.what is this shit….why sony people made this mistakes…they already lost market.china mobiles did better job.sony doesnt respond to issues.actually they dont care.its better stop making mobiles.because it has huge cost with huge problems.i hope they will clear this issue asap……if any one had this issue pls post here…..thank you.

  • Tochi Nwodu

    When that version arrived for xperia z5 in Peru ??

  • Don_Is_Good

    Yadda yadda yadda.. my Z5 Premium E6853 (Taiwan stock) is still stuck on Android 6.0.1, build 32.2.A.0.305 :-(

  • Venkatasurya Prakash

    Ya.. Me too haven’t got this update for my z3+ India.

  • 1. STOP USING YOUR PHONE WHILE CHARGING.
    2. Get a new charger, particularly the Quick Charge 3.0 ones. Yes, I know Z5P is 2.0 but just get a 3.0 one.
    3. Factory Reset and Xperia Companion.
    4. Service center.

    I don’t have a fast charger, I use a 5V/1500ma original Lenovo charger, and it takes a little under 150 minutes from. 0 to 100.

  • BLAME THE CARRIERS, NOT SONY. FFS, some people.

    If you’re really antsy, just flash some Scandinavian firmware and you’re golden.

  • 1. Never had that. Try REDUCING your number of contacts or length of contacts. You don’t need to keep all your Tinder dates on your contacts.
    2. Never had that. Just get MX Player.
    3. It isn’t TOO bad on my end. Please don’t speak like literally everyone who updated to Nougat had diabolical drain. Also, pics or didn’t happen .
    4. Turn off image enhancements.
    NO BUGS WHATSOEVER.

    NOT EVEN PIXELS ARE SAFE WITH UPDATE BUGS, it is what it is.

  • PLEASE STOP CHEATING ON F—— POKÉMON GO. IT’S JUST A GAME.

  • Get CPU Spy Reloaded. It tells whether your CPU is sleeping or awake. That metric is quite ambiguous and misleading.

  • Gilles Lelong

    And what about Bluetooth issues in .376. In this version, i can’t connect bt in m’y car, And devices can’t control next, prev, volume.

  • Rajurajesh

    thank u……U mean to say problem in fast charge is not due to this march patch update right….but before update my mobile gets charge fast enough….
    I think quick charge 3.0 may cause damage to Battery.
    Are u sure charge 3.0 support my mobile with fast charge 2.0

  • QC3.0 chargers are backwards-compatible with QC2.0 in Xperia Z5 class.

    I never had a dramatic slowdown of charge. Have you tried disabling “Charging Optimization” in Settings – About Phone – Status?

  • Dilipkumar

    Its fixed in this build

  • Ivan Knezevic

    1. Problems with camera, extremely slow, and laggy, and even unable to record in video mode
    2. WiFi signal keep loosing while moving in house from place to place

    About Camera issue, there is more people facing with same issue and they all told that Software repair via PC Companion didn’t help. I hope new update will arrive soon and fix these issues.

    bricked my Xperia Z5 Dual in 32.3.A.2.33!! my case is that both of my sim is data ready and i always switch to another when data is slow with either. Now not that i just cant switch and its glitch as hell for the network. sometime i cant even have any data / network at all… trying to use xperia companion to repair now and see what will happen. Hopefully is some small glitch…..

  • Same! I only have problems with my Smartband and replying SMS through the notification badge. The battery with 2.33 is amazing!

    No problem after repair =D

  • alishayzadag

    Thanks for your keenness. The process is to update your phone and after updating, factory reset it. Let me know the results later and make sure always scanning is turned off. :)

  • Geese Howard

    Happy to see you guys enjoying the Nougat and even this update.. my Z5P still sits here sucking and licking the Marshmallow in Asia. Hope this new update will mean I get mine as well for fucks sake…

    Exactly. It’s a theme for Xperia phones. “Theme – Grey” by Gorn Lee, search it on Google Play it’s free among other nice ones too.

  • Angel Vasquez

    Good afternoon, I had two problems after the update (32.3.A.2.33), when I enter the camera I get a message that can not be used because another application is using it and the second when I use the secondary camera, I get the camera Not available , I have restarted, restored and even used the xperia companion and it does not work, I need your support urgently, since even before upgrading the camera was fine.

  • I still maintain that you have to clear the call logs, dont make it appear that the Z5P is reduced to a slideshow at the call logs. It isn’t as dramatic on my end as you make it to be.

    A solution aims to fix a problem. Besides, what difference does the Bravia engine offer? Other than lag in loading and apparently increased battery drain? And the fact that you HAVE to root-and-ROM) to make it even half usable in other apps?

    The Xperia screen is great as it is already.

    Also, MX Player is AMAZING.

    I have updated to 32.3.A.2.33 version. In dialer, if i select the contact and click on call button, it stuck with the black screen. I need to restart my mobile everytime for this issue. Any solution for this issue.. Plz help me….

  • It could be worse, though. Your Xperia could die while it still had 40% battery left. Oh wait, it doesn’t, because it’s not a Nexus 6P. Also, The 810 is the WORST processor in history, Qualcomm half assed it so badly just to brag it had a 64 bit chip.

    I know it’s bad, but what can we do about it? At least your Xperia didn’t die in a bootlooping trap or lose its speaker functionality. That’s the reality of Android updates – if it didn’t kill your phone, it sorta makes it useless. It is what it is.

  • Well, mine is unlocked, and I already HAVE the update. It’s not Sony’s fault that our country got the update much faster than yours. Sorry

  • NEVER had that problem. Factory reset and/or Xperia Companion repair?

    Its just a..march security patch nothing else is fixed.. Really sony u were making fool of us just fix the pblms are irritating.
    1. Wifi and Bluetooth starts automatically while turning of Aeroplane Mode.
    2. Battery diesmuch faster in ideal.
    3. Rotation not working perfectly.
    4.Stamina Mode is still badly struggling with lags.
    5. Dialer lags while scrolling.
    6. S-force doesn’t work perfectly (no clear sound is there).
    7. Phones automatically get on vibration mode without done anything after that i have to restart phn in that case to sort out that issue but it repeats all the way.
    8. Last but not least Sony r u really listening to our problems then fix it before Sony fanboys (like me) hate the brand (Sony) and switch to other brands in future.

  • OINorman

    Hi all. Who exactly experiences problems with Nougat on Xperia Z series? Only those who updated their phone through Xperia Companion software PC/Mac? Or also those updating directly on phone (wifi or 3G/4G)? I updated directly on phone from wifi and haven’t had one single problem with Nougat on my Z5C (E5823). In fact, the phone works better than on Marshmallow. Strange…..

  • PH

  • 1. I think that’s kind of an ANDROID thing. It happens in my mum’s Nexus 4 on 5.1.1, Brother’s LG G2 on 5.0.2, and my Galaxy Note 3 in 5.0
    2. Standby time’s been amazing, for what it’s worth. ZERO percent lost in 8 hours of sleep.
    3. How so? It rotates EXCELLENTLY on my Z5P.
    4. Stamina Mode is SUPPOSED to lag because it DELIBERATELY gimps the CPU and GPU so they use significantly less power than trying to maintain full power to get the 60FPS fluidity you want.
    5. Try reducing the number of log entries there. Or get Truecaller or they Pixel dialer port available on XDA.
    6. It’s alright on my end. I can notice the difference.
    7. Check your Do Not Disturb settings. Also check for apps.
    8. IT IS NOT THAT BAD. Calm down. Be thankful you didn’t get a Nexus or a Pixel that will literally die when you still have 40 PERCENT CHARGE REMAINING.

  • Your screen is at 49 PERCENT consumption. That’s pretty high for 96 minutes of use.

    Also, try removing the Facebook app and just use Chrome and put a bookmark on the home screen. Or Facebook Lite if you absolutely MUST use Facebook. Facebook is a bitch on Android.

  • jokamutta

    So when is Android 7.1 coming for Sony Xperia Z5 series?

  • Moisés

    Nothing here yet

  • Moisés

    I think we all could ask if it is coming….

  • Moisés

    Some people get lucky, others dont..

    OTA or pc companion…. Many users have bluetooth and audio issues… Slow dialer and album ..
    Others say battery drains faster

  • Moisés

    About stamina… There are 3 levels..
    The first one is the most agressive.. It makes a z5 looks like a Xperia M .. Use the second or third..

    Many OEMs are having issues with Nougat..

  • Moisés

    Click on phone idle and see how many mAh it is using…
    Probably less than 300 when your battery reaches 0..

    Mine is 12% too… I have been using my phone for a bit more than 5 hours… Still have 28% battery

  • CaptainPure

    Mine is about 464 for more than 15 hours before the update my screen show me is about 11 percent use

  • Moisés

    Is it fine on standby? Does phone lose more than 2% per hour?

  • CaptainPure

    I know your point man., but the problem is im not exp this before the update., but thx for your suggest man i preciate that

  • OINorman

    Hi. I cannot understand than luck has anything to do with this? :) Same model, same build – a software download and installation. Apples and apples…??

  • Sagar More

    U can update it via Xperia Companion.. Im from india and i have done that on the same day it releases.

  • Sagar More

    I have tried all three of them but still having the pblm but there in Marshmallow we have only one option but it works perfectly fine.

  • Moisés

    No one does…

    I have z3+. Since I got it one year ago there were 8 or 9 updates… It works well.

    I know a guy , he works for one of those many websites that talks about android.. He has one too. After getting november security patch, sim card is no longer found.
    He is not even using the phone… He is also tired of the heat..

    You can go to a store right now and get for example two unlocked XZ. It does not mean both would get updated OTA together. Maybe one before the other. It happens…

    If you update both, one could be fine while the other one is buggy…

    I have nougat, but you find users here that dont have it.. I do not have march patch.. Others do.

    It is confusing… Probably impossible to ex0lain why it happens…

  • russianvoodoo

    This is update broath battery drain (it was best battery life before this update, even compared to 6.0 builds), bad Russian translation, but higher volume without bass (just like it was on previous versions of Android).

  • russianvoodoo

    Can you please answer how it could help? It only can help you reset your phone, which you can do directly from your phone I think. Anyways, it means deleting all data.

  • Moisés

    The stamina of android 6 was kinda Google Doze renamed..
    Not the same of android J, K or L

  • borninahandbag

    Since the update, my z5 Compact has lost the “Voicemail” tab in the Phone (dialer) app. Tapping on a new voicemail notification will open up the Phone app, but otherwise does nothing. I now have to manually dial my voicemail number (or press and hold “1”) to call it and listen to my voicemail that way.

    Very annoying, considering this tab was only introduced about a month ago, when I finally got the Android Nougat update.

  • Samuel Sempala

    You people should thank God for not having received Android Nougat in your countries. The update has been mostly a disaster elsewhere.

    I have successfully been a victim of these failed updates from Sony for my
    Xperia z5 dual (E6633) three times i.e. Android Nougat 7.0 builds 32.3.A.0.372,
    32.3.A.0.376 and most recently 32.3.A.2.23! I am failing to understand as to
    why they are continuing to release patch/update after another without fixing
    any of the issues reported by device owners/users. Some of the most painful issues are:

    1) Mobile data toggle isn’t a one touch toggle any more on Nougat and
    neither is bluetooth. What happened to the simple “on/off” single-clicks
    like the rest are? All of the toggles are that way, except Bluetooth and data.
    They should homogenise it and make Bluetooth and data “on/off” and like
    the rest while long press gives more options.

    2) When i click on the clear all icon to stop all running apps, it closes
    them and then moves from my default home screen to another (without request). A similar thing happens whenever I click on the home button.

    3) Battery drain is unbelievably much worse than it was with Marshmallow. Constant Battery Drain (Phone Idle consumes 20%-25%). This
    gets further complicated by the fact that a phone that used to do 2 days and 12 hours per full charge before the upgrade to Nougat, cannot do more than a day.

    4) Every time I enable wifi and receive lots of updates (information-related
    updates) from the various apps, the phone hangs and locks the screen, leaving no option but to reboot it using the power button as the screen becomes non-responsive.

    5) Android Nougat has also come with peculiar WIFI issues including: being
    unable to connect to a particular Wi-Fi network or randomly getting
    disconnected from Wi-Fi for no reason or getting very slow download speeds.

    6) Lags in Phone app scrolling up and down. Makes a very basic app very annoying.

    7) Images getting sharper with some delay (10-12 seconds) in Album app…Not at all expected from a Flagship.

    8) 4 Cores of so called Octacore processor A57 always in stopped thus reducing performance.

    9) We also registered an exceptionally low in-call volume after updating to Nougat 7.0.

  • alishayzadag

    Always scanning is turned off?

  • Sten Cremers

    I did as you said as well but battery still draining fast.
    Always scanning turned off, auto-syncing off, NFC off, Location stuff all off, screen brightness around 20%… I guess Nougat battery life just is bad at the moment. Haven’t seen any Nougat posts yet who are able to get more than 5hrs of SOT.

    Oh well.. I guess it was worth a try though :)

    Finally! Waited some 2 months for it. It didn’t even roll out when I was travelling to Taiwan for a month.

    Yes, i am having the same problem some times.. Waiting for next update..

  • Don_Is_Good

    :-(
    I feel your pain. On a positive note however, Nougat rocks and it’s worth waiting for!

  • Don_Is_Good

    I live in Australia but owning a Z5P TW variant, and glad to have finally received Nougat.

    I must confess that I was very reluctant to proceed with the update after reading all the negative feedback here. Having said that, I’m glad I took the chance and did the upgrade… man, am I mighty impressed with Nougat or what, it’s awesome and truly transformed my Z5P to a better phone!!!!

    – The phone in general is buttery smooth, snappier and faster!
    – Widgets scroll is faster and smooth (TweetCaster, News Republic, etc)
    – Finger print recognition is speedier
    – Unlike others, camera has improved with faster opening, focus, and it now incorporates focus tracking (not as intelligent as XZ but it’s here nevertheless).
    – Small apps are still here, albeit I have to go through the menu to get to them
    – Unlike others, my contacts loads fast without any issue
    – I noticed it’s using much less RAM than pre-update (1.4Gb vs 2.4Gb)
    – The 1sec delay I used to suffer from video capture is now gone!

    For the record and I’m not sure if this helped but I did factory reset my phone a few nights ago (before receiving Nougat) so helps that cleared all the gremlins?

    All in all, I’m loving Nougat!

    Sadly, now I’m experiencing those same problems. I had to close and re-open the app to work (from the images below you can see that the app freezes and the UI is all messed up). But besides that I don’t have any other problem with this new update, although let’s hope that they can fix these issues on the new update. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ce57a16f172ccf1e66f7f29a4c46d2152a5255c0cac63e08cc3e5223580d9465.png

  • Barry Heffron

    I downloaded an Xperia update today to my Z3+ and installed it.

    However the update seems to have affected my screen in that, if i switch on the phone it loads up until the lock screen, so the screen is still working, but then it immediatley goes black, not allowing me to unlock the phone.

    The phone is working as i can hear notifications and it is charging.

    I thoguht i could reinstall the update through Xperia Companion but it is telling me to unlock the phone first, which i cannot do because fo the black screen.

    If i go to repair the update in Xperia Companion, then that will delete all of my data which i don’t want to do.

    So i thought i could backup my data first……..but to do so i need to change to MTP mode…….and to do so i need to unlock my phone!!

    So i’m stuck with a phone that was bricked by the Xperia update.

    Can anyone please offer advice on how i can get my phone working again???

  • Noble Akan

  • Nirmal Kapopara

    Thx bro

  • Upgraded today… Now the battery is draining faster… :(

  • And thr phone is overheating a lot more than it was…. So bad…

  • Duke

    They now need to address the WiFi. Notifications via WiFi are sporadic at best. Sometime not coming through at all. It’s as if the WiFi goes into hibernation.

    Anyone else having this problem since the 7.0 upgrade?

  • OK… After a few reboots it’s now working fine. Regular heating no more issues. :)

  • Jay Jay

    lol :D the first ring is loud but the next is not loud.. so what now?

  • Ben Solomon

    Waiting for Z3 plus in Hong Kong. Feel like giving up on Sony.

  • Koh Yuan Chen

    Does the backup, backup your app data too?

  • Sepester

    It’s finally arrived, but one thing noticed already (NOBA update), translation in lock screen says english “Use fingerprint or enter PIN ” instead to translated to my language.

  • Wayne Teo

    The volume issue has been fixed , but there is still a problem to the equalizer in call setting , I just realize that I cannot turn on the smooth mode between normal and bright mode in equalizer setting , if I turn it on , after I’m Quit then come back again and it’ll automatically switch to normal … is this a bug or something? …because the problem still remain after I’m update to lattest software, please if anybody realize what I’m experienced or know what happened it is then reply the message to me , thank you

  • Barry Heffron

    I did the same but it didn’t fix it. Phone is bricked. Hopefully Sony can help.

  • FYLegend21

    Has anyone else noticed no more 1080p 60fps playback on YouTube with the latest update?

    Camera shutter lag is still there (although it resumes the live preview faster) and the live preview stutters a lot…

  • theskig

    Same for me. Z5p Dual

  • Macka

    Today arrived finally! Z5 PREMIUM DUAL thanks Sony!

  • Ben Solomon

    Android Nougat 7.0 finally arrived on my Z3 Plus today. Everything works except incoming and outgoing calls. Hey Sony, I think you forgot the phone features in your phone update.

    Anyone else having this problem?

  • Ben Solomon

    Maybe wait to install the update. I lost the ability to call out or receive calls.

  • Ben Solomon

    Don’t do it. Nougat killed my Z3 Plus.

  • Ben Solomon

    Small update –
    Tried reinstalling via Xperia companion and the problem is still here. I also found that if i manually switch my phone to 3G I can make and receive calls. Seems like the problem is only via LTE, which is very strange because data works fine.
    Also please note that i already setup the T-Mobile APN and the 4G calling still will not work. Wasted so much time on this….

  • Zayed Zubair

    My Xperia Z5 premium, is having issues like, 5he volume is lower, the in app phone log, lags. The video app doesn’t show any videos.

  • J. W.

    Finally got this update after being on Marshmallow for quite some time (Chinese variant Z5 dual)
