@Richard

Any plans to repair the software, so that tethering is restored?

Just add it to the monumental list of problems with the Lollipop update. It seems like 50% of people have been sent a bad code either that or those who say it's fantastic are living in "emperor's new clothes" fantasy world...

Lollipop ruined my perfect phone

Why Sony released such an unstable buggy update is far beyond my understanding.
My phone had a perfect battery charging and discharging rate. Now it can't get full charge even after keeping on charge for 6 hours. And discharges pretty fast.
More problems include non working stamina mode, the auto rotate shortcut is useless. Internal space is almost gone after upgrade. And still exploring more and more problems.
I ask the Sony guys to fix this ad soon as possible. Meanwhile don't push the buggy update to more services please. Also publish a safe method to downgrade without voiding warranty.

Long time Xperia user and this time I have made my mind to say good bye to Sony forever.

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

Truth is that only people who have problems will seek help for their phone issues and the numbers who posted in here is seriously not a lot. Take away repeated postings, continuous postings and complaints on Lollipop features, the most is about 200.  With millions of Xperia phones out there and hundred of thousands already upgraded, these here don't even make 0.001%.

 

I am enjoying the benefits of this Lollipop upgrade. My Z2 now managed battery better, camera react faster, you can choose what important app that will interupt in a vibration mode so you won't miss really important messages, etc. Not everyone like changes; but for those brave enough to venture ahead, you likely would find another level of satisfaction that the previous one may not have provided. It's evolution.

@bearings

Actually your wrong. Do you honestly think most people have got the time, ability or can even be bothered to post on a forum.... Let alone this one! That's even if they know about it!!!. On top of that, a lot will not even notice the issues if not used by them and some will simply just move on to a different manufacturer.

actually only a SMALL minority will post on here

And even so, the small minority deserve to have their issues addressed promptly.

I'm glad your enjoying lollipop...but frankly, even issues aside, I think it's terrible to use and feel kit kat was a way better experience
