Re: Android 8.0 Oreo AOSP Released

No Android 8 for the z5? Seriously? It's still a premium phone and what's more, it means that z5 owners are going to be lumbered with 7, which is without a doubt the worst, most problematic Android that's been released on an Xperia (lousy battery, terrible Bluetooth, slow and sluggish, no groups or filtering in contacts, overheating). Shocking. I'll be going for custom firmware if this is the case.

I'm sure you say the same about Oreo if you could update into it - do you really want that your smartphone start working inferiority? I'm sure Sony thought about yours model, but i think they decided to do not update for reason that Oreo will works improperly (but this is just my opinion) Slightly smiling Face

Sometime i thinking that some users buying smartphones for reason to get newest updates and very disappointed when they don't get Grinning Face XA is not bad midrage smartphone, but as i mentioned before Sony just too less updating it... but perharps there are some reasons for that, maybe one of that, that Oreo can work improperly in it Slightly smiling Face Others reasons i can't to imagine, off course there is expenditure questions, but... maybe and for this one Slightly smiling Face

Hello, 

 

May i know the requirements for android O? If the Z5 meets the requirements, when will we get the update? The Question: Will there be an update for Z5? Please answer ASAP. 

 

Thanks


The first Z5 will not get Oreo, so i don't see any point to ask about date of release, also i don't found any requirements of Oreo in internet, i think it's faster manufacturer's necessity, business and matter which devices to update, coz for manufacturer it cost a lot of money, so yours claims, wishes will not helps, there is no point to investing where there is no benefit Slightly smiling Face There is developers which creating unofficial versions of newest softwares, so you can always to install these updates, off course manufacturers i think don't recommends it, coz it can brick smartphone, but it depends users... I did not got (STILL) Marshmallow, but i have warranty and i don't see point to lose warranty, but to have Marshmallow unofficial... Why? Will be better? I don't think Slightly smiling Face

Z5 series models will not get Oreo. If you have problems with camera and ect., repair yours smartphone with Xperia Companion, it must help Slightly smiling Face
