Thanks Eduardo, Mohamed and Walaspancha!

  • LazAndKor

    Anyone who has updated, what’s new? (Z5)

  • razorg

    Yes yes yes yes yes! Can’t wait for it to hit my Z5 Compact!

  • Ríjvě Alám Sáñčháy

    I wish sony fixed android 7 automatic silence problem……

  • Abbas

    Great news for Sony Z family…When we expect for Indian Version

  • MyLive

    Please fix mirroring function.. It has been a problem since marshmallow i guess? Coz i was just realized when nougat 7.0 installed..

  • Carls Alvin

    Just Z5 and Z5 premium updates, nothing for z5 compact

  • Ali Eskandari

    YES, just downloaded. here in Australia.
    let’s see what’s the difference.

  • I’m not really excited to actually update and install this. I see PLENTY of Z5 Premiums with their 3.5MM ports BRICKED by the Nougat update. Mine’s still working, but if I update this will it kill it?

  • Shehab Skull
  • Mohamed

    Mohamed: just received the update via OTA and it’s around 480 MB. Will share the screen shot once done.

  • PRATHAMESH GOVEKAR
  • Deki

    Come on guys, share some changes! :D

    Still waiting…

  • Abbas

    Thank you….Prathamesh govekar

  • Malik Shahid Farooq aWaN
  • Mohamed

    I think 3.5mm jack problem found in Xperia z5 premium is hardware related issue not software related.

  • Many are saying that their 3.5MM ports WERE WORKING on Marshmallow, but once they updated to Nougat it completely stopped working…

  • Mohamed
  • Deki

    Anything new?

  • The same. Hate the vibrations with my SmartBand

  • The boot animation is normal. It’s an old phone.
    But what is assist? Do you se smart Stamina?

  • Shehab Skull

    It is just shortcuts to:
    1 – introduce to Xperia
    2 – Xperia tips
    3- Stamina Mode

  • By the image, we can already see the security patch level

  • razorg

    Calm down… You talk as if it won’t ever come to Compact. Just be patient.

  • razorg

    How about the “slow sharpening of images” in Album app error?

  • Mohamed

    I couldn’t find anything new other than rounded Google product icons

  • Mohamed

    New Home Launcher 10.2.a.2.60

  • theskig

    Same question from me :)

  • theskig

    I’m lucky, mine is broken since MM! :(

  • AJAY KUMAR

    You can upgrade to nougat with no worries . Its a software problem so you can use app called “sound about” it will turn on to headphones when headset is plugged in as I also using it in my xperia z5 premium dual https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a760a5af41d982628ce02c7e513ab4525f3f45706a73d5c25a8c30741493ae69.png

  • theskig

    Mine is broken for hardware failure and even replacing it didn’t solve the problem. Socket is moving and flat cable disconnects.

  • Shehab Skull

    they fixed it :D

  • AJAY KUMAR

    Any one updated xperia z5 premium dual I’m excited to see

  • rekcah

    i hope all the bugs will fix specially the NFC and battery life. really disappointed with the battery life on my z5 with nougat 7.0

  • Murat Tahran

    I don’t think they can fix battery problems. But they can fix NFC problem easily if they don’t want to lose customers…

  • Gokul Prasath

    Whether it will fix faster battery drain and black screen appearance while making the call in Phone app??

  • Zuhry

    what about phone contact group?

  • Murat Tahran

    I think black screen problem is about proximity sensor. I never suffered an issue like that before. I don’t know what they can do for it but I hope they should have tried to fix battery issues… Btw, I use E6553 Z3+ Single Sim

  • Murat Tahran

    Don’t worry, it works . I have Z5 E6603 and Z3+ E6553. I have never seen port problem. You can safely update your phone.

  • Murat Tahran

    You are right it is hardware issue not software…

  • shumayal

    My Battery Care keeps crashing after updating to this on my Xperia X

  • Ates

    Yess man…battery issues on 7.0 is so big…my too E6553 single SIM have that problem…we hope that will fix with 7.1.1

  • Murat Tahran

    We hope :)

  • Murat Tahran

    Make a factory reset after update. This is nearly mandatory for bug free experience.

  • theskig

    I also noticed shorter battery life than MM

  • theskig

    Nothing on mine yet.

  • theskig

    Nothing on my Z5 Premium Dual E6883

  • Dilipkumar

    Image sharpening is not fixed

  • Shehab Skull

    I am talking about Super vivid and X-reality .. they were slow in android 7.0 now they re extremely fast

  • Dilipkumar

    Ya i too saying about that Shehab. .For me same which happened on 7.0. .Its very slow

  • Shehab Skull

    So strange … let’s wait for more people to confirm

  • Shehab Skull

    I really don’t recommend people to do a dirty install via OTA .. my device becomes laggy after that .. install a clean update via flashtool

  • Eduardo Otero

    Now all the Z5/Z4 series has updated, Z5 Compact too

  • Nebojša

    It’s now rolling for Z5 Compact and Z3+ ! :D

  • Gokul Prasath

    Mine is dual sim model .. I have flashed my mobile, one month it was good again i am facing the black screen issue while making call..
    Everytime i need to go to App–>Phone–> give force stop to make it work…

    Worst experience faced while making calls…

  • Murat Tahran

    Make a factory reset after update if you have a serious lag problem. Otherwise let the phone cool for half an hour. Updating causes so much heat ridiculously…

  • Luis Nazareno Ipapo Singque

    suffer the same problem before i just clean the proximity sensor and solve the problem

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Try to do a clean install then? :)

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    So i wasnt the only one doing this :D

  • Bryan Grobmann

    Happy!!! Z3+ Dual here *-*

  • Luis Nazareno Ipapo Singque

    Mostly happen on dusty and windy areas also if you have a screen protector or a tempered glass it gathers a lot of dirt. hate it when you need to end the call when screen turn off =p

  • Ríjvě Alám Sáñčháy

    can you give anyone FTF file link???
    I want to flash…..

  • Eric Ho

    I have found something changes . the phone is now 5cores are active.

  • Bryan Grobmann

    What about bad touch response in Z3+ Dual???

  • Ichsan Rismunandar
  • David Hernandez

    So there five cores actives ?

  • David Hernandez

    Try to restart your phone, I did it and I got the update

  • Ríjvě Alám Sáñčháy

    brother, i am using Russian rom. so i still not find.
    I just checked in xperiafirm, where Russian rom does not receive this update till now. but indian and malaysian rom has received this update. so i need a download link. i am trying with xperiafirm but its so slow.

  • Eric Cartman

    Yes, i just updated mine ^^ !

  • AJAY KUMAR

    Can you share Your model number and screen shot please

  • Night Guy

    So does it makes battery more efficient?

  • fried_egg

    I really hope it fixes the WIFI issues.

  • fried_egg

    what about google assistant?

  • fried_egg

    i found the bad battery life was due to a mix of “location” and “wifi” issues. turning location off naturally helps but wifi often didnt see that it wasn’t actually where it used to be, still listed the wifi available in the old location and appeared to be wasting battery power trying to connect to something no longer around

  • razorg

    I just upgraded my Z5C (Customised AU), but this problem is still there. It’s a bit faster than before, but not as fast as it was on 5.1.1 or 6.0.1. Not as super fast as you say it is :/

  • fried_egg

    Firmware updates remind me of Titanfall2 pilot regeneration… you end up with some of the app settings and logins being remembered but not all…

  • Moisés

    Recebeu?

  • Bell Tobin

    hey guys.i want to know what theme did u use?

  • Eric Cartman
  • Moisés

    Z3+ is 2 y.o and now getting 7.0, while you found 2017 flagships running 7.0.

  • AJAY KUMAR

    Thanks for sharing my model is E6883 the update is still not yet received. Hope it will reach soon

  • Eric Cartman
  • Neha Kulkarni

    1) is the battery drain fixed in 7.1.1?
    2) does now simple 720p video play smoothly after update?

  • Eric Cartman

    No problem, you’re welcome! I hope too.

  • Ichsan Rismunandar

    It activates more cores when you run heavier apps.
    Battery life is to be seen in a few days.
    Btw this is my current theme:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=nerowhite.xprojectmiku

    Cheers :)

  • Eric Cartman

    Sadly, i have the same problem on my Z5p. The 3.5mm port is not working. I’m using the SoundAbout app to get it work. I hope that the problem does not exist on the XZ premium…

  • Neha Kulkarni

    i hope z3+ may get andriod 8.0 as its last update

  • Bryan Grobmann

    Ainda não, acredito que venha amanhã kkkk

  • Bryan Grobmann

    I think z3+ will not receive Android O.

  • David Hernandez

    Thanks

  • FELIPEACYDC

    they fixed 4k video recording on sony camera.

  • Jair Esteban

    Finally, long time waiting for this update….

  • el_sur

    And yet my unlocked USA XZ is still on 7.0. WTF???

  • Moisés

    Prometeram 2 anos.
    Ele foi apresentado no MWC 2015.
    Muita gente nem sabia se ia ganhar o 7.1

  • Night Guy
  • Adv Mohammad Ali AL-Zamarh
  • Moisés

    Aquela com o patch de março chegou aqui mais de uma semana depois.

  • Night Guy

    Still 7.0?

  • Adv Mohammad Ali AL-Zamarh
  • Night Guy

    U r right, a little improvement.

  • Hyung-Woo Jung

    Google Assistant was added months ago with an update to Google App itself. I’ve had it on my Z5C since Marshmallow, just before I got the 7.0 Nougat update.

  • Hyung-Woo Jung

    Awesome! I hope Sony doesn’t take 2 months since the first rollout to eventually bring it to my HK Z5 Compact like they did with the 7.0 update.

  • Juan Carlos

    Why don’t you flash your phone with an official ROM from Sony? You can find them here: http://www.xperiablog.net/forum/resources/categories/xperia-xz.109/
    Also these roms will enable your fingerprint sensor.

  • Nebojša

    What do you mean?

  • Dilipkumar

    try in xperia companion

  • Ok

  • Luis Nazareno Ipapo Singque
  • AJAY KUMAR

    Mee to am still waiting to receive update

  • Ok

  • fried_egg

    not to all builds for all markets it wasn’t

  • Venkatasurya Prakash

    What do you mean.. If z3+ not thn how about z5.?? Will it get O..??

  • AJAY KUMAR

    Bro did you get VOLTE LTE option

  • Chester Yuan

    There are no “Assist” option in settings on z3+ after updating,I just can’t understand.

  • Moisés

    Z3+ is 2 years already.
    Z5 is 1.5 year.

    I have no idea if Z5 gets 8.0, but Z3+ will not.

  • Nebojša

    If Z5 gets 8.0, Z3+ will also get it. They have exactly same hardware (exept camera and fingerprint sensor).

  • Moisés

    No 7.0 for m5.
    It has never been listed to be update.
    M5 deserved to have Nougat.

  • JC

    Yeah, it happened to me, although it’s more like glitching because sometimes it works and sometimes it won’t work at all.

  • razorg

    I completely agree with this. However, as a Z5C user, I believe 7.1.1 is the end for us. What I could hope for at this point is a couple more security patches until next summer (to have 3 years of support, just like Google does with their Nexus/Pixel devices; 2 years of Android upgrade support + 1 Security patch support, 3 years in total)

  • Well. I love the new 7.1.1 update on my xperia z5 dual. IMO, you can get the most of the features by using Google Now launcher e.g Shortcut options etc. For me its very interesting and cool features to have, like you’re going incognito in chrome with a single touch. But not so many app support this feature not even facebook.

    Updated it via xperia companion on my pc because i dont received any update notifications OTA (middle east). The only problem that still remain after the update is overheating issue even for regular usage. And, image loading is not that fast as in mm or kk.

    Overall, so far so good. The transition or animations is smoother and fed my OCD more than before. Lol.

    The other features, you guys can see the others comments.

  • Fausto Rosales

    I just updated my Z5P and there’s a problem with the phone app. When I get a call or check call history apears numbers instead the name. Anybody else with the same problem?

  • dani hari

    What more new on 7.1.1 mr?

  • BraveHeart0815
  • Hideg Jenő Péter

    Try on Sony PC Companion

  • Finally

  • Shehab Skull
  • Shehab Skull

    They fixed the super slow image preview in camera app

  • Shehab Skull

    U can download It from apk mirror

  • Shehab Skull

    I was having it since mm.. So of course it is still here

  • Shehab Skull
  • Haki

    The sound is too low again

  • JC

    Which model are you using?

  • Yeah, saw that it’s SUPERFAST now. Even faster than Marshmallow Imo.

    Side note. I WANT that navbar theme. What theme are you using?

  • David Hernandez

    I don’t have these problem, try to reset

  • Haki

    Z5 compact

  • Haki

    I’ll try it tomorrow.

  • Ichsan Rismunandar
  • Deki

    Usually I wait for the software to become available on my Z5 after a month. :(

  • Gabriel Buono

    I’m having the same problem. It also happens with the SMS app. Z5 Compact here

  • Shehab Skull
  • Fausto Rosales

    I didn’t notice SMS app but you’re right. It’s so annoying. Any news about this Xperia Blog?

  • Chester Yuan

    Thank you for your reply, but it still doesn’t work. Maybe there are something different between z5 and z3+.

  • Still nothing for mine Z5 E6653 CE1

  • Does this happen with other phone and dialer apps? (I use the ported Google Phone from XDA and I do NOT notice this one bit…)

  • Blame Mediatek, not Sony. (M5 runs a Mediatek P10; the Z3-4-5s run the Snapdragon 810.)

  • Gesh Grant

    erhumm Mediatek Helio X10, and as to why it doesn’t get the update god knows, it’s 64-bit and pretty darn powerful (allows 4K recording and 2K resolutionscreens) supposedly it has something to do with google not authorising it. (because weaker P10 driven phones, like the XA did get updated.

  • Aiden M.

    I updated mine a couple hours ago and I have the same issue. I have a Z5P too. Hopefully there’s something we can do about it

  • David Hernandez
  • Geralt

    Come out you complaining piece of shit who were like…. I HATE SONY THEY ABANDONED MY Z3+/Z5.

    Looks like, they didn’t.

  • Aiden M.

    Update: So I thought I would try something and it worked. If you go into the sms app and choose a number, hit the 3 dots and hit add to contacts. Add the number to whichever saved contact you have it under and boom, your contact is back. It looks like you have to do it one by one. I’m sure it works the same way from your call logs. It’s weird how that got deleted

  • David Hernandez

    Thanks!! I tried and It Works!!!

  • Aiden M.

    No problem! Since I’m actually home now I’ve been tinkering with it some more. It appears that when you add the person back to your contacts, the original number is still there but now there’s a second one that defaults to ‘work’ or another title. That number is the one you see when you open a text conversation. But the original number is the same one before the update. It looks the sms app takes the dashes or country code out of the number now. The result is the contact app not recognizing the number anymore, thus you creating a second number for the same contact. I tried deleting the dashes out of the original number and after that, it worked like normal again. However, I think that second number will have the contact when receiving a text, while the original number will be for calls since calls default to having dashes in the number. It’s confusing but it’s looking like that’s how it goes now

  • Fausto Rosales

    I’ve found a faster and easier way. Just export your contacts to SD card or Internal Storage (I used Internal) and then import the same file to your phone again and that’s it, that was enough in my Z5P. Any feedback about this methode will be helpful.

  • Aiden M.

    That worked beautifully! Thanks for the help! I should have thought of that but I figured it wouldn’t be that simple haha. Hopefully there’s no more silly issues for us to work out :)

  • Yeah, but that’s because it has a NEW chipset. I’m saying that Mediatek is NOTORIOUS for refusing to release the kernel and source codes so OEMs like Sony can work on optimizing and updating their phones running Mediateks to the newer Android version. Mediatek simply tells them to pay up and get newer chipsets which support newer Android versions.

    The M5’s chipset is old.

  • You can enable shortcuts on the Google Now Launcher? I had to get Nova Launcher to get them running. There’s significantly more than what’s there on 7.0…

  • Notice that to date, there are ZERO PHONES using the Helio X10 that are running Nougat officially (or with minimal debilitating bugs with LineageOS or whatever)…

  • Change your language to “English (United States)” and get your Google apps updated (Search and Play Services, specifically)

  • UPDATE. THE 3.5MM PORT STILL WORKS. I have gotten away from the Russian Roulette alive.

  • Vahid Sanati

    the image sharpening speed is the same as android 7.0 , not even a small boost!

  • Neha Kulkarni

    I also had Google Assistant on my z3+ since marshmallow but after updating to nougat the assistant is gone!

  • indianmeister

    Just go to Settings Location 3 dots Searching and disable Bluetooth, that works for me 4 months ago and no disconnection since

  • Biancoceleste

    Very impressive to see Sony updating what are now ageing phones so rapidly.

    Very few 2016 ‘flagships’ from other manufacturers are sporting the latest firmware, let lone their 2015 range.

  • Musharab
  • Vahid Sanati

    the image sharpening speed is same as android 7.0 , not even a small boost!

  • Dilipkumar

    You are correct

  • Dilipkumar

    Your mobile in silent mode so that icon appears. turn ringer on by using volume + button

  • Eklavya Gupta

    Its do not disturb icon…

  • Eklavya Gupta

    Network reset was present in 7.0….

  • Eklavya Gupta

    Volte is working for z3+ Indian variant after this update????

  • Shehi

    I Believe its not about the old, Its about the processor and the spec phone has.

  • Musharab

    It’s Not in Silent mode, this icon only appears when I call someone.

  • Musharab

    Z5 Dual

  • NinJy

    Flashed the AU generic yesterday. Feels that the phone is smoother and not overheating like 7.0 rom.. Battery seems way better.

  • Sagar More

    R u sure?

  • Eklavya Gupta

    I am not telling….. I am asking….
    Is it working….

  • Month?!

  • jag

    FTF mirror link for Z3+ please! the one in xperiacheck doesn’t work. TIA

  • Sagar More

    Noo.. VoLte is not working on Z3+ here in India bcz, the phone hardware doesn’t have the VoLte bands. So naver expect that Z3+ ever supports VoLte on the basis of software updates.

  • Bhagwan Patil

    Not received in my z5 dual E6683
    Anybody help?

  • Actman

    Yes I encountered the same shit when you’re either on call or doing an outgoing call!

  • Eklavya Gupta

    But i think volte is working in z3+ uk variant..

  • Sagar More

    Try in Xperia Companion

  • Sagar More

    Lets c what the update provides.

  • Musharab

    Can you flash using Flashtool ?? I have the Indian Firmware

  • Shehi

    Even the BB doesnt got 7.0 on its 2017 Phone ,So pathetic.
    Proud SONY phone user of 1 Decade.

  • Shehi

    Nothing much worth mentioning,
    except I can feel the smoothness over the stamina mode & improved Battery backup.

  • Musharab

    Your Country ??

  • Zayed Kotayba

    Yesterday I was believing that 7.0 was our last update and I was wrong because we got 7.1.1 so I will not be surprised if we get 8.0 also Z5 family and Z3+ both got 4 major updates and SONY did 5 major updates in the past with most of its flagships so we have a good chance to get 8.0 at least I hope so.

  • Venkatasurya Prakash

    India

  • jag

    Singapore. But I’m ok porting the RU FTF file.

    EDIT: No need already. I have the update now via Xperia Companion. Thanks!

  • Omar

    It just during call, as you will be bothered with any notification during call, especially if Wifi is on, I like it actually.
    Turn on the speaker on cal, and it is gone.

  • Sky
  • Nick

    A month. I should be so lucky…averaging 50-60 days before my variant gets rolled out… :P

  • Shehab Skull

    when I hold on the icon it sends me to an app info called introduction to Xperia which I had already send its apk to u .. but maybe it needs other apks to work together so try installing Xperia actions / actions system from here :

    http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/sony-mobile-communications/xperia-actions/

    http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/sony-mobile-communications/xperia-actions-system/

  • Hyung-Woo Jung

    I believe the feature is a 7.1 Nougat addition. Nova coded this system feature to the launcher app itself (of course Nova would’ve used their own codes to emulate it) to provide the shortcuts from what I’m aware.

  • Shehab Skull

    Edit : u can add more cards by downloading xperia actions / actions system and BATTERY CARE :D

    I found them all on apkmirror https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/97ff7c7388f471f18186d313084706ff729ed9ba60ac848a5234ac49e197510b.jpg

  • Deki

    It’s not present in 7.0 as I can see on my Z5.

  • Moisés

    What is the size of firmware?

  • Moisés

    M5 has X10.
    P10 is cpu of XA 2016.

  • SM Ahmed
  • Román Rodríguez

    Anyone else having “uncertified device” shown on the play store after update? I used flashtool to flash ftf and now I got this issue. I’m also not able to add Xperia account. :/ https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/19d90899b6c25f3a97b0a75443e20f0f3278f5635ae8bee6dced410d7927c969.png

  • nazia rida
  • sorry, I found it only in 7.1.1

  • Chester Yuan

    I have installed this two apps, but it doesn’t work as before, so I give up… Anyway, I really appreciate for your help.

  • Neev Pawar

    Does the dialer app still hang??

  • Neev Pawar

    And the call log?

  • Moisés

    Thanks …

  • Saleem

    I hope to add an option to choose the screen resolution ( 1080p & 4K ) in Xperia Z5 Premium, Also to play 4K videos on YouTube.

  • Eklavya Gupta
  • Joshua Law

    But the Xperia Actions keeps crashing. How to fix that?

  • Ron

    How did you get it that quickly via Xperia Companion? Singaporean here too, can’t seem to get it updated through the Companion! ;_;

  • razorg

    It is exactly the opposite for me. I get ~3300 multi core and ~1300 single core with 7.1.1. You might want to repair the device with Xperia Companion, and more importantly, really (I mean really) let the device cool down before you take benchmarks.

  • Charlie

    New update confirmed to hit the Z5 E6603 variant (Costumization: 1298-7308 R1D LA). Let’s see how the phone performs now! Really nice touch from Sony to support their other “old” flagships up to date with the latest flavour of Android, even with the latest Security patches.

  • indianmeister

    What have they done with this update! , now is snappier as hell, Cant remember the last time my phone was this fluid and responsiva, scrolling Facebook never been this good, Chrome super responsive, keyboards, and so on…

  • pberruti

    Now my Z5C automatically reconnects to WiFi again!

  • pberruti

    Mine does not hang, but still does not show the contact if I type its number.

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    I have the same experience. Its pretty fluid and responsive than 7.0

  • Shehab Skull

    did u install xperia actions system ?

  • Shehab Skull

    sad to here .. u re welcome :)

  • jag

    Maybe because I’ve ported a Russian ftf previously so the one I got via xperia companion is from russia too? That’s my guess.

  • Yeah, the Z5 Premium will basically melt down when you watch Youtube in 4K; they couldn’t allow it in XZ Premium, what makes you think enabling it on a phone with the objectively worst processor in all of human history will do good?

  • I installed the GNL from the Play Store, and I don’t get shortcuts. At all.

  • jag

    Here’s my screenshot after updating. Phone seems more fluid in 7.0 for me. And it’s heating up now unlike in 7.0. I’ll do a clean install tonight and if it will eradicate the problem.

  • jag
  • Manoj Kumar

    We were hoping AUDIO ENGINE UPGRADE like the X Series, at least in the Z5 Series. But couldn’t get.

  • Night Guy

    Now battery care has on/off toggle.

  • Razuberyl

    Anyone knows how to downgrade Z5 from N to M?

  • perry S

    yes you need the ftf file and you need to use flashtool. It’s easy enough.

  • Razuberyl

    Which Z5 dual variant do you have?

  • perry S

    Enable developer options, ( settings/about phone/ then tap build number seven times then if you back out into settings you’ll see ‘developer options), then go into the developer options settings and turn off window animation scale, transition animation scale, and animator duration scale. You want to see snappy – that’ll do it like you won’t believe !

  • perry S

    Just did my E6653 with the customised Au firmware and flashtool.

  • indianmeister

    Lol I wasn’t being sarcastic, its really snappier and very fluid, didn’t even make a clean install after 7.1.1, but ill give it a shot at what u say

  • perry S

    Didn’t think you were being sarcastic. Simply added my info in case you weren’t aware of this. Ps: it also works on pretty much any android phone so if you have friends with older or cheap/slow phones get them to do the same with the developer options transitions/etc scales and it’ll improve the phones responsivness dramatically.

  • Abrar Zahin Shahriar

    Turning off animations isn’t snappy or fluid, it is jarring.

  • indianmeister

    Didn´t knew we could do that, anyways, thanks a lot man, hope one day it helps!

  • perry S

    Really ? I find it speeds up the phone. It’s easy to test. Instead of turning them off go and turn them up to a longer time. For example if they’re set on 1 turn them to 5 and see the dramatic slowdown lol.

  • Venkatasurya Prakash

    Anyone got z3+ india update..??

  • jag

    Using a Google Now Launcher now (that’s a lot of now hehe)!

    As you said, the experience is now better because of the addition of touch to shortcut menus. My Z3+ feels like a new phone with this! Thanks for the recommendation!

  • Sagar More

    Ota doesn’t hit here in India u can try over Xperia Companion

  • Venkatasurya Prakash

    No.. I was not getting anythng frm xperia companion.. Are u sure for z3+??

  • Bell Tobin

    thanks too.!

  • Eklavya Gupta

    VOLTE in your phone is working after the update????

  • zzzxtreme

    oh yeah turning them off makes my phone even snappier

  • zzzxtreme

    I have to use Volume Booster with 7.0

  • Robson Kanyama

    Still waiting on my Xperia Z5 E6653. Guys is there anyone out there experiencing bad network which is always on edge most of the times after the android nougat 7.0?

  • Yeah. And its simplicity just like xperia default ui made me chose this launcher over other launcher.

    You know, other launcher come with so many annoying ads. that’s why.

  • Updated:

    I restart the phone several times and now the overheating issue is not really an issue anymore.

    Only slightly hot when the usage is intense.

  • Murat Tahran

    Flash with flashtool latest firmware. Be sure selecting all wipe sections in wipe section. If not work, contact your GSM provider

  • Japapradeep

    no waiting. got xperia z5 premium version

  • Ravikant Rai

    My Z5 has one of the worst camera post-processing ever. Every single image, even with third party apps along with stock app, have bad post-processing with edges not having definition and becoming distorted and smudgy. I thought every z5 has this. HAS THIS been resolved in this update or not?

  • Robson Kanyama

    thanks. does flashtool root the device?

  • Geist_Chevalier

    How did you get the different colored navigation button with that theme?

  • Ravikant Rai

    Got my answer. No. They’ve not done squat to address this. Maybe it is after all a hardware issue. I think I have no option but to sell this phone or give it to someone in my family to use. Even FV-5 doesn’t improve anything.

  • Neha Kulkarni

    update for z3+ in india still not launched
    it will come in next 2-3 days

  • Neha Kulkarni

    Is the update for Z3+ live in India yet?

  • Rajat Toshniwal

    Z3+ India no update yet. Anyone in India getting the update?

  • Well, better late than never. After this update will the Xperia z3 receive android o update ?

  • Eklavya Gupta

    Nop…. Not yet….will be out in 2-3 days as per rumours…..

  • Robson Kanyama

    doesn’t flashtool root the phone?

  • Meh. OnePlus 5 has it even worse, to speak NOTHING about Nextbit Robin’s…

  • Eugénio Costa

    Do you have a Z5 Dual E6683 or E6633? How did you activate voLTE? I have tried to turn on the flag by typing *#*#4636#*#* but it did not work. I am considering to flash the Indian FW version. My network provides voLTE. Can you help me?

  • Charlie
  • Ravikant Rai

    I’ll just get a Galaxy S7 or an S8. Both have great phone cameras. I just wanted something with a fantastic phone camera and I thought of Xperia. Little did I realise that Xperia z5 sucks so much in terms of detail that my old Xperia P beats the hell out of this godawful camera.

  • I have also noticed this. It seems it turns on silent and no alarms mode during a call.

  • Abrar Zahin Shahriar

    I’ve installed it but how do I run it?

  • Keshav Burtony

    Hello guys, i purchased an Xperia Z3+ because i broke my Z3.. I heard that the heating issue was kinda fixed..Any Z3+/Z4 users can confirm this for me please? An how much is it of an issue? Thank you :)

  • Keshav Burtony

    On Xperia z3+? Please tell me more about it please, i just purchase an Xperia z3+ because i broke my z3..Is the heating issue fixed? how bad does it affect your experience? thanks

  • Mohamed Dwedar
  • Ivan Knezevic

    When I change from normal to Xreality and Super Vivid, I don’t see a change at all. Color and contrast are the same

  • Noor Ahmed

    If you are heavy user who plays games, uses 3G/4G internet, Video recording, multi tasking all the time then you will suffer with heating issues (It is not easy to fix, sony just optimizing the cpu freq and cores by disabling or running at low freq during heavy tasks, but still it does not solve it completely as it is SD810 hardware issue). If you are lite or casual user who uses it for browsing, calls, music, a bit of games or photography etc., then you are fine.

  • This update is draining my battery a lot faster. I have to charge thrice a day now and in a 12 hour standby, it drained 25% while in 7.0 it used to go down hardly by 1%. Fix needed badly.

  • razorg

    It’s behaving exactly the opposite on my Z5 Compact. Battery life is a bit better than it was on 7.0. You just need to repair your device using Xperia Companion, because clearly some files got corrupted during the update for you and causing this abnormal drain. It’s a complete lottery in Sony, whether some things will go down or up after an update.

  • Farhan Ansari

    Anyone got update on Z3+ in India??

  • Farhan Ansari

    I think we must update by pc.. OTA update will take more time

  • Farhan Ansari

    Probably it will get 8.0 coz of its hardware

  • Farhan Ansari

    Yes you can get on companion just…

  • Farhan Ansari

    Nope I don’t have pc right now bt last time I updated by pc on 5th day of rolling

  • Venkatasurya Prakash

    No bro.. They havent updated our country itself in xperifirm.. So have to wait for 2 days

  • Farhan Ansari

    Okay if you get.. Then let me know

  • Abdhy Setya

    plis link description sir?i need unlock code

  • AllanKafka

    I have always been quite unsatisfied with the quality of the pictures taken with my Z5 as well. I had and still have a Nokia 808, so I might say I was spoiled. ;) One thing I loved about it was that when a picture would come out blurry, it would always be clear if it was due to bad focusing or to movement (e.g. shaky hands). I find that the post processing on the Xperia makes it much more difficult to understand whether blurry areas are so due to motion, bad focus, lens softness or what else. I say so because picture quality is not consistently bad. Some photos come out very well, but they are the minority. What I have learnt is that I have not so steady hands, so my next phone should have OIS. I hope Xperias will get it before I replace my Z5.

  • Neha Kulkarni

    yeah
    all z3+/z5c/z5/z5p are capable for Android 8.0

  • razorg

    Look guys, there has never been a device in the history of Android which got more updates than its Nexus/Pixel counterpart. Devices are considered as counterparts due to the SoCs they have inside. z3+/z5c/z5/z5p are equivalent to Google’s Nexus 6P (all having Snapdragon 810). Nexus 6P will never receive Android 8 officially, and will keep getting ONLY Security Patches until September ’18. OK, there are no restrictions on S810 being able to get Android 8, but noone will go over their BOSS Google and update their devices more, besides, this makes companies to force their customers into buying their newer devices, and companies love doing that. What we can, and we SHOULD, expect from Sony now is regular Security Patches until Summer ’18, just like Google will do to Nexus 6P…

  • Keshav Burtony

    Ok thank you very much Noor.Also, say if i am using the camera normally to take several pictures, does it heat up a lot? i heard that it mostly heat up with the camera apps like ar mask etc.. I use my phone mostly for social media, play some lite games once a while, watch a lot of youtube videos, use camera and listen to music a lot.

  • Japapradeep

    maybe you need to calibrate the battery

  • Charlie

    That’s odd, mine shows it just fine.
    I hope you don’t mind the question but you do registered your fingerprint right? I’m not sure but maybe it doesn’t show up in the menu until you finish the fingerprint set up. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7c6a75476609605c148c83d9770e41eaed6a64736c122990f7d5cfe41bcfa7cc.png https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d03112869f6bdfd2674209435e43f53fc62d5811ba616795e9359c4c47c70a33.png

    Can confirm it has been fixed.
    take a few seconds before the call can go through.

    Hello, i have Xperia z5 (E6653). And i can’t wait ota update, can i install directly 7.1.1 with Austrlia customization. My actual customization is 1298-3675 generic R5D

  • Keshav Burtony

    This is not the Australian variant.. 1298-3675 is for Denmark if i’m not wrong..1298-7277 is for Australia..Australian variant have already received it..Have a look https://xpericheck.com/device/E6653

  • Keshav Burtony

    You can use flashtool to flash the Australian firmware..

  • Charlie

    Yes you can flash any specific Software version that you want via flashtool (according to your model variant of course).

  • Serigne Fallou Show

    Ok Thanks Charlie, i’m downloading ftf for Australia, but i will not void my warranty or erase DRM keys?

  • Noor Ahmed

    If Z5 gets update then Z4/Z3+ will surely as they are both same except for camera mostly. As Sony always releasing updates for Z5/Z4 same time.

  • Charlie

    It won’t void your warranty, but like a lot of other users had said, it’s better to do a “clean install”, meaning to wipe everything. And I quote -“This will wipe all of your data though including your photos and videos, so please ensure you have these backed up elsewhere.”

  • Noor Ahmed

    In Photography, I dont see heating much an issue (unless if you are using the phone outside in summer especially in south part of india or doing video recording). I think you will be fine, but if you want to control the heat then install Ex Kernel manager (if you are rooted) then disable big cores when you do not need as small cores are more than enough along down clocking a bit and you get even better battery.

  • Venkatasurya Prakash

    Yep bro.. But android o contains a new feature called auto fill by which we can autofill our passwords on various sites by simply tapping on fingerprint sensor.. Z3+/Z4 will not satisfy this feature of android o.. So for that sony will ignore z3+ for its android O upgrade.. But we have some hope against this, google selected pixel c tab for android o update which don’t have fingerprint sensor in it. Apart from all this.. Sony havent provided final list of devices hitting android O it just an assumptions..

  • David Hernandez

    Yes, you have to downloaded two apk of xperia Actions, If you would it, go to APK MIRROR and look for it,

  • Keshav Burtony

    Ok thank you very much for these infos..Looking forward to get it..I purchased it off ebay and there were no express shipping..

  • Charlie

    Oh one last thing: you can use the option “software repair” via Xperia Companion to solve any other problem that shows up after flashing the firmware.
    Good luck.

  • David Hernandez

    I Can’t fix it with Xperia Companion, There are other way to fix it ? Because I have problem with the program, How many times do you charge your Z5c?

  • Charlie

    Did you try a software repair via Xperia Companion?
    I don’t have that kind of problem and I flashed the firmware via flastool, then performed a software repair just in case.

  • Pascal Anargya Silverius Sulis

    Eh , dude… L1 and E5 was never been upgraded to another major Android OS (they stuck with they were) due they’re being low-end device of Sony . M5 , C5 Ultra only got 1 major update of it’s lifetime due being a mid-range (6.0) . XA and XA Ultra is the same case as well …. (7.x)

  • Pascal Anargya Silverius Sulis

    Dude , Nexus 6P was released with Android 6.0 Marshmallow pre-installed on the device. It will be a madness if they stop Nexus 6P at Android 7.1.2 Nougat , as previous Nexus devices always get 2 major updates . Android 8.0 O will and should be the last for 6P and 5X , not 7.1.2 .

  • dapaintrain

    Upgraded my z5 Battery drain has gotten worse can barely get a through from 7:00am to the afternoon at around 3:00pm without looking for a charger because i’m entering my final 10% and i’m not an intense user 20 mins of web browsing in the morning and a quick glance of facebook throughout the day maybe 2 calls and that’s about it.

    Hurry up IFA i want to know what the next flagship will be so i can upgrade. xz premium is nice but not for me.

  • razorg

    https://support.google.com/nexus/answer/4457705

    Nexus 6P/5X will not be guaranteed another Android VERSION upgrade after September ’17 (Google themselves is saying this, see the link above…). Even if the first version of Android O (8.0) will be released before that time, which makes 6P/5X entitled to receive it, there is no guarantee for the reason I’m about to tell you. Let’s say Android 8.0 got released for 6P/5X just before September ’17. This will force Google to keep updating these devices with the other upcoming iterations of Android O (like 8.0.1, 8.0.2, 8.1 etc) for ANOTHER YEAR, they can’t just release the first version (8.0) and stop there. With a VERY high chance, 6P/5X won’t receive Android O just for this reason, instead, they’ll keep getting Security Patches on 7.1.2 until September ’18, and this is exactly how our equivalent Z3+/Z5 series should be treated.

  • Pascal Anargya Silverius Sulis

    For the support upgrade reason for them , i understand though . Most Nexus phone did the same (from One to 6P/5X) aswell Pixel . But , idk what’ll happen , we just wait on September this year about Android O and what Nexus/Pixel/other OEM’s phone will get .

    VoLTE is not completely standardized so many providers allow VoLTE on branded phones only. This is the reason I needed to flash the Telekom-DE-Firmware on my branding free Z5c. Here, Deutsche Telekom has by far the best network but the slowest firmware certification. At least, they skip the buggy variants :-)

  • SM Ahmed

    It’s just giving estimate of around 13 hours of full charge on my Z5 dual. Previously it used to give the estimate of 21 hrs (Nougat 7.0)

  • SM Ahmed

    Hi Adil,

    Did you manage to fix your fast battery drain issue? Me and my friend’s Z5 Dual has same problem. It’s just giving 10 hours of battery time on moderate use.

    Thanks!

  • Serigne Fallou Show

    Image processing is slow like with 7.0. all the rest is OK. Battery life is better also.

  • ArunRock

    Can someone tell me if the small apps still there or they got removed. I hope they get removed.

  • Ali Manai

    This update brings lots of improvements but the volume takes a hit again

  • 3_nity

    I thought you were talking too much, dud. Xperia M5 stuck on Android 6

  • Charlie

    Still here. Personally, I never used them but some people find them useful. I believe there are not present on the Xperia X series at all. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7e019f2527491db53059a04e719dd7ac850b0e916e0a43bbd6e684475ba812e1.png

    Thanks mate. one more thing, does xperia home supports new hideous round icons like pixel?

  • Charlie

    Haha you don’t like them? I think they are not that bad, anyway there are pretty cool icon theme package out there.
    Regarding your question: yes the round icons are the default icon theme in this software version. See the image below (I’m using Nova launcher, just in case you find it quite different from the Xperia Home launcher). https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/088676cff657816d0365c1e19af33e0b29f694fc9a26960b36910331528101c4.png

    Oh no :( Time to use icon packs now on both Nova and Xperia home. Thanks for info.

  • Neha Kulkarni

    LOL
    my z3+ is on march patch
    i dont think sony can keep security patches upto date

  • Charlie

    Now that you mention it, yes the image processing is still laggy and not as fast as it should be. But besides that issue (at least in my case) the new update made my phone works faster, better battery life, better memory management.
    Anyway, let’s hope Sony give us updates up until Android O, and who knows maybe the manual control in the camera settings from X series that we all want so much.
    PV

  • Serigne Fallou Show

    Oh yeah, this update make the phone run very smooth, with a better battery life. Let’s hope for update which fix image s processing bug and call log.

  • I performed Software Repair through Xperia PC Companion. Now its giving me the same performance as before and the battery drain issue has been resolved. You should repair it too but backup the data and settings before doing so.

    As confirmed by Adil Rizvi in this thread. Try repairing your phone using Xperia PC companion software to solve battery drain issue.

    My Xperia z5 e6653 is experiencing horrible battery drain on this version battery estimates are at 9 hours.

    I’ve only gotten half a day of use from the device since upgrading.

    I’ve been forced to flash back to marshmallow so I can use my device as a mobile and not have it attached to a charger twice a day.

    It’s a common problem aswell looking at the support forums

    It wont coz they have 2 year update policy

  • Murat Tahran

    How did you downgrade??? As far as I know, downgrading causes bootloop or hard brick!

  • Murat Tahran

    Hey bro, I am still waiting for Z3+. I think it will take 1 or 2 weeks. We have to wait…

  • dapaintrain

    I used xperifirm to download the firmware for my region and flashtool to apply it.

    Pre requirements were a full backup you will lose all your data on the phone (not the sd card however). Enable USB debug on the phone before applying the firmware and you’ll have a marshmallow Xperia in no time.

    I didn’t encounter any bootlock issues I contacted Sony support with questions regarding downgrades but they couldn’t help me i found some Xperia fan sites with more detailed step by step guides on downgrades.

    But you can go from any version to any version as long as its supported firmware.

  • Murat Tahran

    I know procedure for flashing firmware but I tried it 2 times, it failed. I had to send my phone to Warranty Service. Maybe I will try again one day. I am waiting 7.1.1 for Tukey. I hope this version is better than previous 7.0

    Me too still waiting

  • dapaintrain

    Fair enough for your sake I hope it’s helps you but after using 7.11 for a few days on my Australian firmware my phone battery was empty by lunch time was so bad I was thinking of upgrading to xz premium if I could find one at a decent price

  • Farhan Ansari

    Z5 dual got 7.1 but Z3+ still on hold

  • Farhan Ansari

    U just check on pc I think it would be available on that

  • razorg

    Dude are you kidding me? Various Z3+ variants received 7.1.1 with various region codes:

    https://xpericheck.com/device/E6533
    https://xpericheck.com/device/E6553

    You just need to be patient and wait for whoever is responsible for your region to release it…

  • Venkatasurya Prakash

    We waited for a week bro.. Still no update for india

  • Farhan Ansari

    Let see when does it hit..

  • razorg

    @Farhan Ansari and Venkatasurya Prakash:

    I bought my Z5C while I was in the UK, so it had Customised UK rom on it. For over 1 year, I used it with Customised UK rom, and every single update reached me with 1-2 week delay, and hell, even with 1 month delay during 5.1.1 Lollipop time! So you guys just calm down, because it looks like Sony’s India team is as sh.t as its UK team, it’s not being done to you intentionally. There is nothing you can do! Do what I did: Customised AU (Australia) region is usually the first to get every update on Z5C, so I flashed that rom and I couldn’t have been happier. Just find the region which gets the generic updates fastest and flash it and stop complaining because Sony has been blocking their ears to us for ever, you just frustrate yourselves :)

  • Noble Akan
  • Venkatasurya Prakash

    Just throw it away.. U’ll get back it in working condition

  • Farhan Ansari

    Thanks bro… But let me know… Is there any difference between Indian and Australia generic??

  • Noble Akan

    Why this problem is coming.?
    Fingerprint status say it’s ok

  • Noble Akan
  • Giovanni

    Where’s the update in Italy?? Nothing yet

  • Joonwoo Park

    Nobody suffers from excessive memory usage of System? Before the update, it was about 600-800mb, but now it gets high up to 1.2gb, leaving few memory apps can use.

  • David Hernandez

    I have the same problem after two days, Now I repaired the software with xperia companion for two raisons: Solve the problem withe the battery and I looking for that these problem with the memory will be solved

  • Eklavya Gupta

    reset your phone….

  • Eklavya Gupta

    then, try to repair from xperia companion….if there will be any kind of software problem then it will be repaired if companion doesn’t work then there is highest probability that there will be hardware issue means something wrong with sensor then should go to sony service centre if your phone is in warranty then they will repair or change your phone depends upon what is the problem….

  • Malik Shahid Farooq aWaN

    After I updated my Xperia z5 premium dual I can’t delete any file from my album app. Anyone having this issue? What can I do now

  • Moisés

    Acho que não.
    Qq lugar que o celular ã vendido vai ter os idiomas.
    Muita gente que frequenta site de tecnologia faz manual.

    Nos EUA, povo usa rom inglesa para ligar a biometria.

  • Bryan Grobmann

    Obrigado pelo retorno, vou arriscar nessa Customized MEA, abraço.

  • Joonwoo Park

    So is the problem solved now? I did clean install with flashtool, but the problem remained.. I’m considering companion repairing too, but worried that it would be waste of time.

  • Emanuel Amico

    Which region version have you just flashed?. My ‘phone iddle’ % is always higher than the screen, kinda weird :(

  • Japapradeep

    Still waiting

  • Joonwoo Park

    So is the problem solved now? I did clean install with flashtool, but the problem still remains. I’m also considering companion reparing, but worried that it would be waste of my time..

  • Objectif

    Still no russian firmware…

  • Ates

    Uk version tooo…always last.

  • David Hernandez

    I did the software reparation, after that The battery looks like better, I but the problem with the memory is still here, I waiting for that it only will be for a moment and I will see tomorrow, the reparation I did it one day ago, how about you?, tell me what happened after reparation

  • Bryan Grobmann

    Instalei o Customized MEA, sem nenhum problema, rodando perfeitamente! todos os problemas foram corrigidos, tradução, resposta do touch screen, etc… unica coisa que ao invés de aparecer 4G, aparece LTE kkkkk.

  • David Hernandez

    Have you had problems with the memory ram after the update ?

  • Sagar More

    Is this update put on hold. Bcoz is over a week now and still here in India there is no update available for Z3+. Sony r u listening ????

  • Moisés

    Nos países onde a net é boa, fica LTE ao invés do 4G..
    Que bom que deu certo.

  • Hmmm… Did you guys lost anything fingerprint related with this update? It doesn’t work anymore on mine, it’s not even in the settings.

  • Charlie

    What kind of model and software version do you have? I didn’t experience that issue at all, but some users have posted this kind of problem. Maybe a software repair could help.

  • Z5 Dual, I updated to 7.1.1 yesterday. My fingerprint sensor had some problems before the update (with a warning on the lock screen), but it disappeared completely after the update.
    Maybe it’s time to send it for repairs…

  • Same here, but mine disappeared completely. I have no options for fingerprint in my Z5 Dual :( But I had warnings sometimes about the fingerprint sensor hardware being “not available”.
    Trying a repair with Xperia Companion, but I guess I will send it back for repairs (gotta love the EU 2 years warranty :) )

  • Neha Kulkarni

    Still No Update for z3+ in INDIA
    what’s wrong sony!

  • Keshav Burtony

    I purchased the simgle sim version too.. i don’t like dual sim phones.. It costed $260 + $10 Shipping.. With a seller called x-channel.

  • Eklavya Gupta

    They might be adding VOLTE services to the device that’s why they are taking time….

  • Charlie

    That’s a bummer dude. But yeah, if your phone is still under warranty send it for repair! Or maybe a software repair could do the trick.
    Good luck!

  • Zal Ri Dabuet

    My z5 wifi not turning on how to fix it.?

  • Rolf Mao

    Try to turn on flightmode, wait a couple of seconds, then disable it again….

  • ben bleho

    I’m waiting too.. My z5c with 1298-5167 localization was always the first one, when new updates arrived. This time its different. So let’s wait :)

  • Neha Kulkarni

    I don’t think so
    z3+/z5 does no support the LTE bands which are avaliable in india

  • Latest Bulid 32.4.A.0.160 for Customized SG (E6683) Not Yet publish…..
    WHY? & When Will it Published?

  • Eklavya Gupta

    But snapdragon 810 supports VOLTE….Moreover one plus 2 also have snapdragon 810 and in India VOLTE services works great on them…..

  • Nicolás Rivas

    Yes, I have the same problem. This week started this problem, and then I updated to this last update and the problem keeps (when I updated I did a factory reset, and I still have this problem). It leaves little space for cache, so it gets more slowly… It was the same, around 700mb before, and 1.2Gb after…

  • Giovanni

    In Italy nothing… Where is the update?

  • Then again OnePlus 2 will NEVER, EVER get Nougat outside of rooting and romming; the Sony 810 series already has Nougat.

  • Khillo81

    Hey! Is it working for you? For me, it keeps crashing whenever I launch ‘Assist’. I have a non-rooted Z5C

  • Khillo81

    Thanks! Xperia Actions is working now :). They should really link to the Xperia Actions System from the Xperia Actions so we don’t have to google in frustration

    From Greece I can have a clear answer from someone who is responsible for it with the software update 32.4.A.0.160 For the Sony Xperia Z5 compact Personally my Has Be late very usually my It was coming within in 2 weeks I would like a reply Please

  • David Hernandez

    Hi, I have been to the forum of sony, and, one person seems to have found a solution with the problem of the ram, the cause apparently is the movie creator app, this users says that he disactivated it and until now all is Okay, I’ve tried it, I can not say it if it works, but until now I havent had to reboot my phone, My phone works fine and smooth,the problem seems to have disappeared, I will continue to see the behavior of my phone, Try it!

  • David Hernandez

    Yes, but I’ve had to instal two apks, for that it works, Did you do it ? tell me if you want the links of the apks

  • David Hernandez
  • Khillo81

    Hey. Yeah, thanks. I found out I had to install the Xperia Actions System as well as the Xperia Actions to make it work. I tried it out today for the first time. It’s a nice function. Not sure why they didn’t include it by default but that’s the beauty of Android: if you know what you’re doing, it’s very flexible.

  • wilmer jovanny salazar olmedo

    since this automatic actualization, many of my close friends includes me, we have lots of problems with the software, can`t use themes, frozen cell, overheating and others

  • Jackamon

    Would it be OK to install the Latin America Generic or the Australian version to a handset in the UK?
    I have a Z5c and am desperate for an update due to the massive Bluetooth issues on 7.0

  • Ates

    Z3+ start rolling for customized UK region…

  • Sowrove Hossain

    When Z5 Users of Singapore Region get 7.1.1 build 32.4.A.0.160

  • deekbee

    I have a feeling that doing that has helped the battery life on my Z5C – made the change first thing today, and just after lunch the charge was down to 70% – normally it would have been down to 50%.

    (I disabled both BT and wifi in that option)

  • Venkatasurya Prakash

    Have u received the update..??

  • Neha Kulkarni

    Again an week passed
    still no update in India

  • Sagar More

    No no no no :(

  • Giovanni

    In Italy nothing…

  • Cinar

    Where is the update for Turkey :(

  • Cinar

    You can stop and clear memory of fingerprint from apps then reset your phone

  • Cinar

    Try stopping fingerprint app then run again. Reset your phone afterwards

  • krishkat

    In Germany I am still waiting for update on my E6653

  • Objectif

    On XperiCheck.com there is the DE firmware.

  • krishkat

    I know it, but only because XperiaCheck.com says it, it doesn’t mean that I am actually getting the update.

  • Objectif

    Ah OK.

  • NekeresCsongi

    I have a z5 premium and my phone is slowing down somtimes is strugeling to load in the apps on the wallpaper. My girlfriean have the same problem on the z5 compact . What sould I do to fix the problem???

  • Eklavya Gupta

    Backup and reset…

  • Smarty79

    Why don’t you flash the one from Malaysia? You can flash any firmware within the Hardware-Version (here: E6683 dual) without risking anything…

  • Neha Kulkarni

    What the hell
    almost 20 days gone
    still haven’t recevied the update in India for z3+

  • David Hernandez

    Hi, I have a Z5C, and I had this problem, with the ram ram the battery llife, I used to restart after two days because my phone was slow, I was searching and I found a solution for these problems, I recommend you , Do a backup and reset, after that you have to disable movie creator app, and dropbox (I only disabled movie creator) Many users have reported the same problem, and the solution is this, Try it, The battery life is better and I have a good Performace with 7.1

  • Arghtastic

    The 7.1.1 update for me is far less stable than the 7.0 update which was superb and solid. The 7.1.1 update messed up my proximity sensor among other things. Looking at having to hard reset the phone and re-install everything to fix it. Very sad.

  • Arghtastic

    The 7.1.1 update has been unstable and whacked my proximity sensor out (had to goto service mode and run test to get it to work again) and it’s still flaky. The 7.0 update was rock solid and superb. I’m very sad. . . .looking have to wipe the phone and reload it to fix all the whackiness. . .I hope.

  • Arghtastic

    The 7.1.1 update has made my phone so unstable and it whacked out my proximity sensor. I’m looking at a hard reset and re-installing everything to hopefully clear it up. The 7.0 was rock solid and superb. So very sad.

  • Nicolás Rivas

    hi! thank you! I had this problem of heavy usage of RAM by the system (it used to be around 700Mb and then suddenly it turned to be around 1.2-1.3 Gb) so it left little space to cache, which made the phone quite slow. it was slower with 7.0, it got better with 7.1.1 but still it was slow. disabling movie creator fixed this problem! thanks a lot again!

  • Nicolás Rivas

    I tried it and it solved the problem! thanks a lot!

  • David Hernandez

    That it is great !! you welcome Bro! Enjoy 7.1

  • Keshav Burtony

    Since i updated my Z5 E6653, on Customized UK firmware, everytime i am calling someone my phone goes on “Do not disturb mode” by itself.This is very annoying.. Also i’ve heard that many people are having issues with the album app and with the fingerprint sensor..Hope Sony release a patch for these bugs soon..

  • Keshav Burtony

    This is by far the worst update i guess..

  • razorg

    I like that automatic Do Not Disturb feature because it comes on and goes off automatically during a call, and I am not disturbed by incoming messages or etc. Why did this become a issue for you guys? Though I can not comment on other issues listed here as I don’t have them. I am on Customised AU firmware on my Z5 Compact, and it may very well be the best firmware version I’ve ever had on my phone really…

  • Moisés

    Updated arrived here a few hours ago….

  • Александр Рубанов

    Finally got the update for E6683 Z5 dual in Russia. Seems to get it more smooth now.
