In late 2014, Sony announced that the Android 5.0 Lollipop update would arrive in late January for the Sony Xperia Z2, Z3 and Z3 Compact. However, in the end, as has happened with most manufacturers, the update has been delayed.
But the wait is over. Sony has just announced that they have already started to release the OTA that contains the update to Android 5.0 Lollipop of the Sony Xperia Z3 and the Z3 Compact. They have made it known through their official blog, and they warn that the OTA will gradually arrive in the different markets, beginning in northern Europe.
We also have news about the Sony Xperia Z2, since Sony says the update for its flagship in early 2014 will arrive in the next two weeks, so we will have to wait a while longer. The rest of the Z range, as in Z1, Z1 Compact or Z Ultra among others will also be updated.
However, what is clear is that each terminal will receive the long-awaited update to Android 5.0 Lollipop, which we assume is version 5.0.2 of the system. This update brings the new interface to Material Design, guest mode, new notification curtain, etc.
Remember that the Xperia Z range will be the only one that Sony update to Android 5.0 Lollipop, leaving the entire mid-range on the KitKat bench. In this sense, the devices that will update to Android 5.0 Lollipop will be from Z1 to Z3, going through the Compact versions as well as all the tablets of the Z series.
By cons, Recent 2014 devices such as the Sony Xperia M2 or E3 will not receive the Lollipop ration they were originally promised.
What do you think about the update policy that Sony has designed? You think it is fair?
