Starting our Android 5.0, Lollipop rollout: Xperia Z3 & Xperia Z3 Compact

Starting our Android 5.0, Lollipop rollout: Xperia Z3 & Xperia Z3 Compact

 

UPDATE: First scripts for Android 5.0; Lollipop are now rolling from today for Xperia Z2, Z2 Tablet & Z3 Tablet Compact

 

We’re starting our Android 5.0, Lollipop upgrade from today for Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact.

You’ll see the upgrade hit first devices in the Nordics and Baltics, continuing to further markets, for more Xperia Z Series products, starting in around two weeks time* – we’ll share the latest here, as it happens.

After blending Google’s first Lollipop release with our Sony software, some of the goodies include;

  • Fresh, streamlined looks – based on Google’s material design, but retaining our minimalistic approach to interface and application design
  • New look notifications and lock screen – with fully customizable settings, so you only get the information you really need
  • Multi user profiles and guest mode – making it easy for family and friends to use your device, or the creation of dual environments for work and play…
  • Android for Work – not only are business-ready Xperia smartphones and tablets unique devices for work – with waterproof form factors, great battery life and productivity features – they will now also be part of the Android for Work ecosystem
  • Better storage control and customisation – with the option to easily move applications from internal memory to SD card – giving you more control over your content, particularly useful for devices with slightly less space

 

Be sure to follow the blog and @SonyMobileNews for all the latest as our rollout continues.

*Timing and availability may vary by market and/or carrier

Because Sony removes features people like. It's much easier to roll out updates if you remove all the new features from Google. I guess that's what took them so long to roll out the update.

Try clicking the text in PC Companion that says your phone is updated.

 

@e-kzn

I'm afraid i don't have any information regarding this but i will forward your feedback.

 

@JOHN_f

You can still set ISO manually to for example 50 or 100 in the cameras manual mode
