Android 5.0.2 Lollipop

While more Motorola phones are getting Android 5.1 already, Sony’s Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z3 are still being prepped for Android 5.0.2. That’s just a slight difference and at least, the Xperia Z phones are getting a taste of Lollipop unlike others not totally getting the new Android version. Sony Xperia Z2’s build number is known as 23.1.A.1.28 which rolled out to the model only yesterday. Next Xperia models to receive the same software update include the Xperia Z3, Z3 Tablet Compact, Z3 Compact, and the Xperia Z2 Tablet.

Sony has also released the changelog for the Z2 and Z3 series. It’s been confirmed that the new ‘close-all button’ for recents apps is now included. Lock screen and notification bar will no longer show “no service” when phone has coverage. The ‘close-all-button’ has been placed back in the activity menu so all apps can be closed easily at once.

Sony has also unblocked some devices with server policies like the Exchange Active Sync for e-mail. With this update, lock-screen notifications are enabled on Lollipop. The LED light is now lit across all sound modes. Even in silent mode, the LED light will still light up unlike before.

Since some devices were having problems when moving files from the built-in memory to an external miroSD card. Sony has fixed the issue to allow easier and smoother file transfers for Z2 and Z3 owners. And if you’re in Ultra stamina mode, you may notice some improvement in messaging functionality on your device as well.
