I've just received information that this issue will be fixed in the next software maintenance release.

Please Sony give us a specific date for the next update to fix this problem and please note that the lollipop version is much heavier than the Kitkat 4.4.4 which was like a breeze on the phone
Also please add the location-based wifi option that was available in Kitkat and used to work perfectly or do you want us to regret upgrading to Lollipop?

Try to reset app preferences under settings-apps-all and report back.

I'm afraid i don't have any information regarding when the update will be available. As usual. please keep checking our blog for the latest information.
In Android 5.0, the Wi-Fi scanning has been improved and no significant saving of power is achieved through the activation of the Location-based Wi-Fi. Therefore, it has been removed.

Just received another software update of 16MB in India. And I am happy the image enhancement is working in album app now. Thanks sony, that was quick. However, the other issue that is bothering me a lot is single speaker out put from a lot of apps like viber, In kitkat I was able to hear the other person on both the speakers when on speaker mode but now only the bottom speaker works during conversation. Also, when I was using various music streaming apps like Saavn, clearaudio+ was functional in those apps in kitkat. But now after lollipop clearaudio+ is only limited to walkman and movies. I know Sony support would have an answer it is only supposed to work in walkman and movies native apps. But my point is if it was working earlier, it should work now to have the same clarity and loudness. Hope it should be an easy fix for Sony in future updates. Thanks again.

The equalizer does work for 3:rd party apps in Android 5.0 as well but the change from 4.4 is that it's not on by default for apps. The app developer must now state that they want to use it in their code so you need to contact the app developer in this case.
I can't speak for 3:rd party apps but the reason why we only use the bottom speaker for the standard speakerphone is to avoid echo. I have forwarded feedback about using both speakers though.
