could you elaborate, is it an opinion or a fact? thanks
I bet that it is taking them such a long time because they need to find a way around the new Android permission run-time check... All their intrusive bloatware needs to have access to personal data otherwise they cannot "monetise" their customers.
if its a fact, please add the source link.
I have already answered. It's an opinion based on previous experience.
All the following Sony apps have introduced intrusive collection of personal data in the last year or two:
- TV Remote/SideView whatever is called now
- Currency Converter
- Xperia Keyboard
- Movie Creator
- Remote for Sony TV
- What's New
- Get More (still nobody has explained what this thing is doing)
- probably something more that I can't remember now....
Sony doesn't make money with phones so, like Google, they must make money from our personal data. MM makes this a tad more difficult so they are ensuring that they continue doing it....
I don't have a link to post apart from the old Rootkit link that shows Sony is not new do this...

Why is it taking so long to update their flagship phone? Come on Sony, sort it out. When my sons Motor G 2nd generation is updated before your flagship phone, you should be ashamed.
All I really want is an update to stop photos looking smeary, but I hope Sony sorts itself out, or this is the last Sony I'll buy for the next few years.
Moto G 2nd Gen (the 2014 mid-end phone) already got MM beta in January. And finally got the final build 6 days ago:
We don't even have a Beta in Z5 / Z5 Compact to colaborate...
The fact that there is a Z3 beta (concept) and there is no Z5 beta (a much newer and bugged phone that needs more fixes than it predecesor) pissed me off.

Hi all just seen in another post that the new software update is due March 7th, is this when it is released to network providers for them to add their bits and pieces? If so I'm guessing for some of us it could be sometime before we see the update.
