We have disappointing news for owners of Sony devices that do not belong to the Xperia Z series. Over the last few days, the company has responded to customers on Twitter wondering if their devices would be receiving the Android 5.0 software update. Sony will not be pushing Lollipop to devices other than its flagship series for some reason.
Listen up Sprint Galaxy Note 4 owners…..You are about to get Lollipop. Sprint started pushing the update over-the-air, but you know the drill……It could take literally 2 weeks or more until you get yours since it rolls out in stages. Yes, you can keep tapping, Check for Updates, but trust me when I say that it won’t do a thing other than make you feel like you think you are speeding things up.
Lately, it seems that everyone is getting an Android 5.0 Lollipop update on their smartphones, there are even rumours that Android 5.1 might be rolling out to Nexus devices in the next few days. Even Samsung has been pretty speedy with updates to its older phones, with the Indian Note 3 being the latest to receive Lollipop. This isn’t any comfort to Sony Xperia Z3 owners though, as they are still on the waiting list of devices to receive the update. There may be cause for hope however according to this video (after the break) taken at Sony’s MWC booth shows a Z3 handset running Android 5.0.2, while the narrator says that the Z3 Compact was also seen running Lollipop.
If you’re a Nexus 7 owner, the euphoria of having Android 5.0 Lollipop installed on your device probably fizzled out a few months ago, thanks to the buggy performance of the update. Nexus 7 owners have reported problems with WiFi connectivity, video playback, battery life and that their devices are getting slower and slower thanks to a probable memory leak. According to a Google Plus post by Artem Russakovskii (Android Police), though, there might cause for renewed hope, with Android 5.1 rumoured to roll out in the next week or so.
T-Mobile has started pushing out the Android Lollipop update to their version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The upgrade includes all of the normal features and enhancements that Google introduced with 5.0, plus a few carrier specific fixes just for T-Mobile including enhancements to WiFi calling.
If you have a Note 3 on T-Mobile’s network, start checking for the update.
