it's just software, it could be done if they want. i use to use my previous z3 compact many times in landscape mode (didn't own dock) but now looks for me like step back - hae latest phone, but "oldest" launer. i know therepre planty of launchers in google play. i've tested about 8-9 launchers for myself, but for me xperia home is best one, it's just simply to control, this is just one big feature i miss. hope with 6.0 there will be this option allowed

I am opening a thread here in this section, although I left a post in the home screen section too, because local support wrote me this thing is related to Z5 family.
Briefly... Some months ago I opened a case to bring back the home screen rotation to Z5 family. My, usually unuseful and unhelpful, Italian local support told me to wait for Marshmallow and report back.
Saturday i wrote them that, despite the Marshmallow update, home screen's rotation haven't found it's way back. They replied that that function is impossible to write. I work in IT since 25 years and I am always been told that in computer programming nothing is impossible.
Besides, rotation is very useful when the phone is connected to a discrete screen by MHL so please, would you bring it back like on Z3?
Just for the record, I'm attaching the response I get from local support. I would not to start a fight but I think that our local support should start to listen to costumer request, rather than try to loose clients at all the cost.
Con la presente La informiamo che purtroppo anche dopo l'aggiornamento alla versione 6.0 di Android non c'è la possibilità che la scherma home venga ruotata. Questa è una funzione del sistema operativo e vale per tutti i modelli Z5 compact, non solo per il Suo. Siamo spiacenti ma in questo caso non possiamo intervenire.
