    Relax it will come an upate for the older Z series aswell :)

    Well, what are security updates for? Correct, to fix vulnerabilities. Would you turn off windows updates even for a week? I wouldn’t. Even Samsung got much better in this topic. We are talking about a less than two year old flagship…

  • Colt1255

    Im still waiting for 7.1.1. CE1…

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Wait what, samsung is even better? Haha Galaxy s6 is still stuck on android 7.0….. And to be honest, for as long as you use only Google Playstore and its services and dont allow unknown sources of apps to get installed you are as safe as on a iOS device…. No matter what security patch of the month you are running, all ptaches above stagefright and Quadrooter are really safe….

  • Kayla

    I got tired of waiting for it and put on the german firmware. Works fine.

  • razorg

    As a matter of fact, yes, for the security pathces ONLY, Samsung is better. I guess they’ve secretly signed a deal with Google or something. Let me make myself more clear: For instance, Galaxy S5 has Sony equivalents Z2 and Z3 (+ Z3C). All these phones have reached EOL at 6.0.1 Marshmallow. My best bud still uses his Galaxy S5 and it’s got April ’17 pathces. However, Z2/Z3/Z3C are all stuck at May ’16! That’s almost a YEAR more security patching. I’m not a huge fan of Samsung, but I gotta admit they’re doing a pretty good job when it comes to this. If only they wouldn’t abandon mid versions of Android (like all Samsung phones getting updated to 7.0 but not 7.1.1 and those lucky enough, upgrading directly to 8.0 by skipping 7.1.1)

  • Mathias

    Don’t care about security anymore… All i care about is: DOES THIS PATCH FIX THE FATAL GLITCH REGARDING THE LOW VOLUME (especially in wired headsets) ON BOTH DEVICES???

  • Juan Carlos

    Even Galaxy S8 is still running Android 7.0!! My X Compact is running Android 7.1.1 and September security patch. Sony is doing a great job updating their devices, way better than Samsung!!

  • Pedro Faria

    I’m in Portugal… Still with July security patch… It’s normal?

  • Richard Brutski

    Yup, my X compact is also 7.1.1 w/ September patch. S8 is still on 7.0, and my phone was almost a third the price!

  • Wooty

    We are talking about Z5 here. What the X Compact got to do with this?

  • Juan Carlos

    That is your opinion!! I’m really enjoying my Xperia X Compact and my previous phone was a Galaxy S7 EDGE!! I already pre-ordered XZ1!

  • hardik jadeja

    Anyone from India got the update?

  • Wooty

    That was your opinion!! I’m not enjoying my Xperia Z5 and my next phone definitely would be Galaxy S8 or Note!! I wouldn’t buy any Xperias devices again.

  • razorg

    You’re missing the point. Obviously you haven’t read my first comment! I said “for the security pathces ONLY”. I agree with GS7 running on 7.0 and not 7.1.1 thing, but for security patches, read my comment above thoroughly please…

    Not yet; it’s not available for IN region yet:

  • Depende se o telefone é desbloqueado ou não! A partir do momento que o update sai, depende das operadoras e mercados :/

  • Pedro Faria

    É desbloqueado de origem. Daí não entender. Aliás penso que o X Compact nem foi vendido bloqueado a nenhum operador em Portugal.

  • arcu de triumf

    So what’s new about this security patch? What does it do?

  • ramel naila
  • Jan

    Same with my Compact x,
    I am in the Netherlands. Ann…

  • Pedro Faria

    Let’s wait… And think that will receive the September update soon.

  • Ein

    xzs wants to get it

  • Alex

    Why can’y Sony ever put a change-log with their updates? How hard would it be? It would be nice to know what has been fixed! Samsung phones always show what their updates do, along with the Android security updates.

  • Kwstakhs

    Indeed man, the volume was way higher on Marshmallow

  • Jerry Berglund

    Hey Emil, have you gotten this update yet?

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Not yet, havent had time to check via Xperia Companion though for a while, should come OTA any day now i guess, what about the update for your X compact with september security updates? :)

  • Jerry Berglund

    hm… Nothing here yet…. :-( But I was just wondering, it mean september is almost over. lol

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Thats wierd, first time this year that security update for the X series have been so delayed :o Atleast the premium phones, except XZs i guess :p

  • Quentin Grs

    Finally got it in France

  • HvdW

    The update arrived on many devices on 19 September

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Seems like I was right again, it would come any day now and today I got the update, fixed the Bluetooth vulnerabilites aswell :)

  • laraib d great

    You can check for your region; and better wait for your region’s update release than flashing manually global firmware.


    Update is now released for IN region:

  • Oleg Zalyalov

    So, after a month still nobody knows what is it in this update?

  • Peter Karimi
