Sony Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact get Android 5.0.2 update
Sony launched the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact back in September 2015, both loaded with Android 4.4.4 KitKat. Now these two handsets finally get their firmware updated to Lollipop after Sony "blended" Android 5.0 with its own software.
According to the official blog post by Sony, these are the highlights of the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update for Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact:
- Material design UI that retains Sony's minimalistic approach
- Fully customizable notifications and lock screen
- Guest mode and multi-user profiles
- Android for Work
- Improved storage control - apps can be easily moved to microSD
Sony reveals that first areas to get the update will be the Nordics and Baltics, while additional markets will follow "starting in around two weeks time." This delay is most likely cause by the fact that the entire premium Z series will soon get updated as well, including the Xperia family of Android tablets. We will get back to this as soon as that happens, so stay tuned.
