You expected nougat on Z2?
Your expectations are set too high I'm afraid.

Out of the others, I'd only really expected Z3 & M5, the others would soon turn into steaming piles of crud on N.
You gotta remember, they would all need optimising to hell to run N and Sony are better off sticking to devices that would yield better results.

All Z3 Soon To Be Obsolete?

Sony decided to leave us Z3/Z3C owners in the dust: Reports are there will be no Android OS 7 (Nougat) for the Z3.

That means, soon there will no longer be up to date apps available. Which means, the product becomes useless and worthless.

 

If Sony sticks with its decision to abandon these models only two years after introduction (never mind you can update a 2012 iPhone to current OS), my loyalty to the brand will be no more, and I will never buy another Sony phone.

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

It's quite embarassing to know Z3,One of their most successful Xperia Device,NOT getting Nougat.

 

As far as I have searched,There are 3 reasons for this

 

1) If you closely notice,You will see that most companies are looking forward to update their Flagship Devices at first

2) Another thing is that,Nougat completely removes support for 32-bit ARM CPUs.So only SD805 and above are supported

3) The Code Nougat removes,Are known as MSM8974,These were present in the Beta/Developer Preview and strange

    enough,Google decided to remove support for them,So it's not possible to run it

 

I have a feeling that,Since Android can be completely changed by any company that's using it on their Phones,Sony can potentially ADD THAT CODE back on Nougat and release it on older devices without affecting performance or having too much coding work

 

I really hope they bring back support for E4G (Atleast update it to Lolipop damnit),M4 Aqua and M5,C5 Dual and the Z3.They are shooting themselves in the foot with this.

 

Heck,Even the Z2 can be supported because Z3 and Z2 are technically similar
