ArindamBhomick, really wonder why you spent 50k on a Sony and not China phone for much lesser? If you sell your Sony now you can still get your dream China phone. But word of advise, learn Mandrin.

Re: Android 5.0 When are we getting Lollipop? Which Xperias will be updated? etc

So why have you not move on to China made phone? Is it because their major brand is still on Kitkat and not Lollipop? www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/android-l-5-0-release-date-when-can-i-... The other China brand phone like Oppo & Xiaomi don't do software. They let Cynogen do custom ROM but u must noe how to flash. Since u already know Sony do not rush their upgrade, why come back?

Guys, Please!!!

Why are we fighting over a trivial issue. Update is already on its way and will be available sooner rather than later.

Anyone know if this is true?
http://www.vcpost.com/articles/53026/20150327/android-5-1-lollipop-release-update-sony-xperia-z3-z2....

This would make sense since Sony has been dragging their heels on the 5.0.2 global rollout. Perhaps 5.1 is almost ready to go, so they're releasing 5.0.2 as is knowing that all bugs will be fixed later this month. Any insight?

I doubt Lollipop 5.1 will be incorporated in this rollout. As with previous Kitkat rollout, it's more down to individual carriers when they complete their test run before actual rollout. But with so little info available, it tend to show the rollout is slow.

Re: Android 5.0 When are we getting Lollipop? Which Xperias will be updated? etc

I have seen several comments that the timing depends on the carrier.  However as my phone is not tied to any carrier (though not rooted) and I was expecting to update it from the PC (with a WiFi connection) I do not see why there should be any carrier issue.  I am assuming that the delay in my getting the update for the Xperia Z3 Compact in the UK is just due to a throttled roll out.  Or have I missed something?

@TheotherMike

 

I can tell you from bitter experience (Xperia Z1 & Z2 owner) that us sim-free mobile owners in the UK will get the update LAST.  It's something to do with Sony's seriously potty idea that all the carriers need to approve the firmware before us mugs, sorry sim-free owners, get the update.

 

Apparently it's all down to Sony not wanting us mugs, sorry customers buying a device out of contract. 

 

(Current owner of an orange Z3c, and a Z2 wifi tablet, and oddly still owning a Z1 & a Z2...  Lots of sim-free Zs there.  And yes, someone does own an orange-coloured Z3c)
