    This will come for XZs as well. From Sony’s perspective, all S820 devices (X Performance, XZ, XZs) are the same devices.

  • Igor Helal

    damn! The HK Firmware still in 7.0 !!!

  • Yali AA

    odd that XZ Premium hasn’t gotten it!
    Still on April 1st update.

  • Yali AA

    7.1.1 on XZ Premium :-)

  • Igor Helal

    :( I can’t flash other rom by flashtool.

  • PatQQ

    XZ Premium already has it

  • Marco Aurélio

    Already got this update in my Xperia XZs ! It was like 360mb.

  • Marco Aurélio

    Qual foi o problema com o Flashtool ?

  • Igor Helal

    Deu problema duas vezes. E eu já fiz flash no z3 e xa. Mas no xz foi impossível. Na última vez brickou o aparelho e só pude salvar no pc companion. Não lembro exatamente o erro, mas quando começou a flashear, a barra verde travava e o processo era abortado. Fiz tudo direito, como nos aparelhos que citei. Ai fiquei com medo de tentar de novo e dar m… Vc tem alguma solução?

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Well that’s it, just because of Sonys updates this year to my x performance, I don’t have any other choice than to buy a Sony phone next time I’m getting a new phone xD I’ve lost count on how many updates we have gotten this year already :D

  • adneon0

    my dear Sony team , you had made a device named Xperia XA for which you had scheduled an Nougat update .

    Does anyone know if this fixes the “apps can’t write to SD card” bug?

  • Tochi Nwodu

    Am I the only one still using Xperia z5 lol since Sony has decided that I’ll use my z5 with a permanently buggy call app

  • samar

    dont just update the blogs, kindly do reply the comments,
    my question is why xperia xa is kept backward? will it get android 7 or not, kindly do reply

  • Jacky

    I’m still rocking with my z5. What’s wrong with your call app?

  • Objectif

    You are not alone to still use the Z5. It’s a great phone. And it still have radio fm for exemple…

  • el_sur

    I have an American XZ that is still on 7.0 with March security updates. What gives??

  • Tobbyax

    Seen on Sony forums: this issue is still present with this update. Very annoying…
    It seems that only a few people remarked this problem, whereas it’s perfectly reproducible. For those who want to know: If you activate SD card encryption, apps that try to write into Android/data/[dedicated app dir] will fail. So you won’t be able to use SD card storage with podcasts, music… until you factory reset your phone and avoid to activate SD card encryption.
    From 41.2.A.2.199 to 41.2.A.7.8 included, so far.

    you have to ask that in official Sony blog then

  • samar

  • Blunt

    Again my XZ shown same update having same build like previous one.
    Without observing it i captured screenshot and continued update.
    Then only i came to know that the update is same.
    Surprising !

  • Rohan

    xperiablog is a fan based group, not an official one

  • Angelo Piazza

    Why in my XZs are still there February security patch?

  • Jean-Daniel Geyer

    Not for me.
    Firstly I had twice the same update (each time install fine, the second time for 9MB) and since my battery decrease much faster and more important since the update I ran into connectivity issues such as no network to make calls or losing WiFi connection (when my business Iphone didn’t)

  • Jean-Daniel Geyer

    Me too with an box phone (without operator personnalisation) in France.
    I notice it because I find weired to have another update just after the reboot so I check my screen shot and saw same number but only 9MB for the second one.

  • Meowmeow

    I have an x performance and it’s really laggy now, I always have to restart the phone because it’s too lagging when I use snapchat or apps that use the camera. And sometimes when I just use WhatsApp it automatically restarts the phone.

  • vigneshprince

    its not official
