  • Just updated Xperia Z2 because I had to. The update corrupted my SD card where half of my apps were, then proceeded to wipe photos and games that I usually play. Not happy. Able to get some games back on after repeated installs but apps like Facebook, Messenger and Line won't take. Sent dozens of report messages but to no avail.
    Now the phone is effectively useless for what it was intended and set up to do.
    Don't these clowns test their product before they put it out there. If they were working for me they would be in the unemployment queue in 2 minutes flat. Thanks for nothing....

  • i have lollipop 5.1.1
    but do not have 23.4.A.1.264.

  • Update to previous post.. Yesterday I got the lollipop 5.1 update and my phone now charges 100%

  • After the z2(D6503) has gotten somewhat slower...also...ever since the update the superior auto mode is having problems focusing... There are also problems with speaker when I call someone...the other party can't hear me but I can completely fine...and sometimes its the complete opposite...but I listen to songs just fine.......recent contacts take a long time to show...nd sometimes it hangs for a couple of seconds in contacts....the battery drainage seems to be more....also the phone restarted several times after the update...while I was doing other stuffs or even using 9gag! Before...hardly the app crashed...only crashed...but ever since the update it restarted 2 or 3 times....its getting really annoying talking in my phone Cuz the other party cant hear me...sometimes I have to even use loudspeaker! Got the update 1 week ago..

      Me and a friend of mine are having the exact same problems too. That's totally annoying. I think they are rolling out these updates to make phones worse so that we would buy the new flagship. Mine was too much better before latest updates !!!

  • Both my daughters z1 compact and my z2 cannot charge to 100% since the lollipop update, also suffer battery drain when connected to pc. Unless you have a very new xperia I would advise not updating to lollipop. My other daughter got her z2 this year and hers charges fine after lollipop. However this battery /charging bug seems to be effecting loads of us with xperias and apparently is due to hardware in the xperia phones. Not happy and have had to start using my old xperia T until this bug is fixed. Which isn't right when I'm just halfway through my phone contract so still another £200 to pay for a phone that I cannot use :(

  • worst worst for t2 ultra... mobile getting hang... u can't even use ... dono why dey allowed lolipop worst software... mobile is hanging nd making irritation

  • good

  • Z2 on west coast. International version on straight talk. 5.0.2 for a month or so and it works well. Can't wait for 5.1

  • What case is that in the second photo?

  • Some very good tricks, thanks.

  • Sony Xperia series has been exciting and thrilling for all smartphone users. They have been creating smartphones that are worthy of an investment and something that can 100% give satisfaction to your technology and entertainment life.

  • Why my z2 still hasnt lollipop update?

  • All the links to Lollipop updates are blind for Sony Z2!
    Why cant the updates be released simultaneously?

    Xperia z2 Lollipop update Live in the uk, available over the air, no need for pc companion which is odd

  • why my z2 says update only available via computer version 23.1.A.0.690

  • Didn't get 🍭 update for my xperia Z2
    While checking the Sony site it doesn't shows any sign of it.
