Re: New Android 5.0, Lollipop firmware update for the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z2 Series

Please tell me that Smart Lock has been fixed in this update?

 

Using the Smart Band to unlock the phone in Kit Kat was a brilliant feature and one of the key reasons I bought a Sony phone at the start of the year.

 

Since Lollipop it no longer works as it used to. Now all we have is a workaround of disabling the Smart Band and adding it to bluetooth to get the unlock working. Even then it is only temporary.

 

In Kit Kat we didn't even have to swipe a screen after pressing the power button, it was brilliant.

 

If a proper fix isn't forthcoming I'll need to downgrade back to 4.4.4 as it was a key feature for myself.

I have had issues with "mobile radio active" for several apps (facebook, chrome) that drain the battery

I agree I was annoyed when they removed this for no reason, also I want to profiles to return while holding the power key

Hi, I have one issue that I hope'd you'd fix with this update but you didn't. And that's controlling Spotify with SWR10, it used to work perfectly on 4.4 Kitkat, but now it only works and recognizes the walman app.This is really important for me because I used this feature a lot, hovewer I am really disappointed. I know you can easily fix it because it was working before and I hope you will do that in a near future. Other than that, I have no problems with Sony products, thanks.!

Next lollipop update and you didn't fix empty white search icon after long pressing of home button yet. I've reported it after first lollipop update, but as it seems you didn't care. Video here https://youtu.be/2t8xypPTvpw
