Re: Security patches. How? When? How often?

Only if your device is still receiving updates and not eol, then they don't give care. Not had one since October last year.

Re: Security patches. How? When? How often?

It's very disapointing to hear the new update doesn't come with newer security patches (which I was looking forward to).

 

I understand I have made a huge mistake in choosing sony mobile. It is clear that security in general is just an afterthought for Sony.

 

And that's a shame, as otherwise, the z5 I own is quite ok (I am carefully considerig the adjective to use as right now the bt streaming struggles and skips more often than usual, hehe. Let's just say OK then)

Most other oem's are probably just as guilty as Sony is in this department

Re: Security patches. How? When? How often?

I was actuall expecting that Sony was going to release monthly patches but seems I was wrong. However, as 1adrian1 stated also other oems stopped delivering patches, my current examples are LG(stopped on May) and Motorola (stopped on April). Hopefully Android/Google will figure out a way to update the os for security patches without updating the whole os..

Who knows if android N will bring this feature.

Security patch level

I have .73 pack and the Android security patch level is April 1, 2016. Other brands are already updatind to security patch July 2016 (see S7 and S7 Edge). Why is Sony 3 months behind? Does anyone have more updated versions on XA 3111 (or other model)?

Google just release September's security patch but as alway Sony is slow with everything and we are stuck with April's one. It's kinda oxymoron to what they say that security is high priority for them yahoo

Why Sony does not provide timely security updates as released by google

It's very irritating to see that Sony does not update it's security updates while it keeps updating it's What's New application and the Support application every 2 weeks.
Really disappointed by Sony.
