Re: Z3 Tablet Compact WiFi still no update to Marshmallow

Hi, I have a Z3 Tablet compact WiFi (16GB) which has still not received the android 6.0 update. The update was released early 2016 as far as I can tell, but so far it has not come yet. Also tried hooking it up to my PC with the companion program, but also then nothing happened. Any clue what is going wrong here? Thanks!

Write your model name in Xperi Check to check was released for your market/region/country Marshmallow update, also check in Sony Mobile by IMEI is available for you new update. It's up to day - mean that need to wait and be patience. Update releasing in different countries/market/regions at different time, so if you did not got update, need to wait. If in Xperi Check and even by IMEI you will see that update new is available for you, but in Xperia Companion you can't still update, contact with Sony Mobile Support Slightly smiling Face

Where are the security patches?

No Android N... That's annoying, but no more security patches since May 2016?
Sony, you are responsible for the device security! Google just released a big security patch, but we never received the last ones.

New compatibility guidelines from Google for Android N - Vulkan not necessary!
Google realesed the compatibility guidelines for Android N and Vulkan is not an must!
So can we expect Android N for the Z3C? Sony said, that this is the reason why the Z3C will not get Android N.

Greetings,

Re: Android 6 When are we getting Marshmallow? Which Xperias will be updated? etc

I own a expensive Sony XPERIA Z4 and I'm waiting now allmost 1 Year to at least a software update.

Android 6 or better to Version 7.

But Sony is not moving, im really said about that.

 

Hello Sony where is your responsibility about the security of your manufactured devices? Goolge has shipped there new releases of Android out 6 since very long time and 7 is not young any more.

 

There is also a comercial on your Sony webside about Android , looks for non sony owning customer you are very engaged to pleas you cutomer, but I'm not pleased im terrified about the missing security upgrades, and therfore also the missing Android Upgrade!

 

Now the security holes are described and open to attack our not updated devices and we can't do any thing to get the support from you. Is it all you can do sale a device and forget the customer?

 

Sony is it nescessary to by to twice, possible for an upgrade? If relly nescessary i would spend a little to get a secure device back but actual statet is not durable.

 

Any one else who thinks the same?

 

To the end, the hardware is great the Supprt is also great to talk to customer but there is no real action behind. Support acts as Firewall. :-(

Update release at different times in different places, when will be update available for you impossible to say, coz depends your country/region/market or/and operator. Check always information in Sony Mobile by IMEI, also you can check in Xperi Check in which market/countries/region released update, also to check is update available for you, you can with Xperia Companion.  Don't forget when update will be available for you, you will get notification Slightly smiling Face
