Just wondering how things work with regards to patches. Only had the phone 6 days and done 4 restarts because of some issues and also i joined the concept software then that is getting taken away, so returned back to stock again 2 days ago and I'm on the February patch, no problem with that but the other people with the same phone and model on concept are saying that the Xperia x is on April's security patch when they go back, is there a reason why mine has not been updated? Different region, Just curious.

Congratulations Sony!! The security patch for my Z3 Tablet compact has its first birthday (May 2016/May 2017). Well done! Never again a Sony device. Really poor support.

I'm out here. I will leave Android since I'm tired to be very much dependent on the willingness of Sony or any other company. If we have luck we get support for a maximum of 3 years (only Google -Nexus). For the Z3 tablet compact Sony provided not even 2 years support which is really weak. This behaviour is typical for company's which use the Android OS regardless of whether the devices are flagships or not. Android ist the worst supported OS.

Why i got one year old Security update on my z3C?
Why are no new Security patches/updates availeble??
If you Support your Smartphones only one year, you should announce that.... It's a shame for a Company to work like you...
I'm so mad @your Support

I have the device since the beginning of April and out of the box it did 3 updates. Since then I have not received any other security patch, it is still running the March 1 security patch. My model is the F5321 (european purchase) and it is completely stock without rooting or disabling services.
I've seen on XperiaBlog that on April this model (F5321) got the monthly security update and the same happens this days for the May update but I still see nothing under "About phone > software update" nor under "Support > Software information". Also when checking with my device's IMEI for software updates on Sony's support site, again, it says that it is up to date.
The software version is showing 34.2.A.0.333. Also I have to point out that I have purchased it in Greece but once I inserted my Vodafone sim card it downloaded Vodafone's German apps instead of the Greek once.. Could it be exclusively for the german market and therefore not receiving the updates here?
In the broader spectrum, my questions are:
Any help is extremely appreciated!

My last security update is 1 may... After being downgraded from 7.1.1. To 7.0 all updates where gone to?
Du to doing all sorts off financial things on my Sony the phone needs to be up to date... Am I "safe" to do so?

If you purposefully downgraded, you won't recieve security updates as they are inclusive of later builds.
If you want latest security, update firmware as it becomes available.
