Re: Sony,Please make Nougat for Z3

Actually, apparently and sadly...
http://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2016/8/23/12614418/sony-xperia-z3-android-7-nougat-upgrade

And.. http://blogs.sonymobile.com/2016/08/23/sony-xperia-and-android-7-0-nougat/

Well, seems that if this is correct, a lot of people is going to be upset.

But, I am not Sony so..

Nougat Aka Wait, what? No Z3?

I don't like to start fires and I really hope that all this fuss is just about a preliminary list of devices that will receive Nougat, however according to the Verge (the author of the article is angry at Sony), other sources and the official blog... http://blogs.sonymobile.com/2016/08/23/sony-xperia-and-android-7-0-nougat/

... Only a very small subset of devices will receive Nougat. No Z3 and none of the actual midrangers will receive it.

I am not Sony, I understand that but that list is wrong.

Ok, not discussing about my C5 which is not even one year old but hey, it's a midrange you will say...

... transeat...

Anyway, yes the fact that the Z3 Serie is not there sounds hopefully like a mistake but mostly like a tremendous error as the device is really capable and premium enough to deserve the last candy before being officially retired.

I am not going to bash Sony, my next device will be Sony but yes..

Sorry Sony you are doing it wrongly.

Re: Sony,Please make Nougat for Z3

Yeah, that is ok. At the end Nougat is not really that big change, the real deal was moving from Lollipop to Marshmallow. My only possible concern is about security patches.

Re: Android Nougat When are we getting it? Which Xperias will be updated?

This could be an explanation as to why the Xperia Z3 isn't getting Android Nougat.
While Sony was being vague about this before, there's now official evidence that this is actually out of their hands and it's not their fault.
Apparently, with Android Nougat, support for Open GL ES 3.1 or Vulcan is absolutely necessary to acquire Google CTS certification. When Sony released preview builds for the Xperia Z3, this wasn't a requirement.
Why doesn't Xperia Z3 support Open GL ES 3.1?....Because Qualcomm was extremely slow to adopt it compared to other companies, the first Snapdragon processor to support Open GL ES 3.1 was the Snapdragon 805.
Why doesn't Google just support Open GL ES 3.1??...We don't know yet... Slightly smiling Face)

Why the Xperia M5 will not receive Android Nougat?

In my country (Spain) it was launched in February 2016 (in another countries in 2015) and the Xperia M5 has very good specs and i don´t understand that the Xperia XA witch 2 GB of RAM will have Android Nougat and the Xperia M5 with 3Gb of RAM will not have.

Re: Android Nougat When are we getting it? Which Xperias will be updated?

This is really frustrating. M5 which isn't even 1 year old yet and costs as much as Z3+ not getting update. It has 3gb ram and 1080p screen and opengl es 3.1. This is really unfair. Sony you should reconsider it.

I have to say sony you are doing it wrong, please reconsider it. Because it is going to upset lots of customers.
