after updating to z1 c6902 lollipop i am getting sposored ads in whats new app & almost all other apps in lollipop like 9gag. sony is also pushing amazon app through whats new, why is sony is doing this. i dont know any other model is facing this, but i am irritated by this, half of my mobile data goes in this showing ads in between.

I think this is related to other apps that you have installed. Boot in safe mode and see if whats new still has ads:

hard to say but it still showing ads & how can any other app or apps can show ads in other apps ?? when i restored it to factory version, it doesnt shows any ads even all other apps installed, it only shows after the update through whats new.

Perhaps @Samuel can take a look after the weekend.

You might experience that the Amazon application is now available in What's New. This is due to the fact that we believe that it will enhance the user experience. You don't have to install it if you don't want to.
Regarding sponsored ads, the only thing that changed is the text that says it's sponsored, the ads themselves has been there before and are based on what we believe can be interesting for you.

I find it really pathetic that a SUPPORT FORUM must see this type of language used. You need to delete this post and repost it with the correct text: "This is due to the fact that Amazon has paid us to do so".
It's a SUPPORT FORUM, we don't want marketing information, we want support information.

After latest updates for What's new, amazon is not there anymore.

Instead of security fixes or Lollipop, my E4 got yesterday Amazon app via software update. If I delete it, SU want to install it again. Is there a way to delete it?
-edit- it's awesome that my post has been moved here, but it doesn't do anything with what's new.
-edit2- oh, now I see okay, no problemo.
