Sony is updating the Xperia Z5 family the Z4 Tablet, and the Z3 Plus to Android 7.1.1 today. The devices have already been enjoying Nougat for quite some time, as they've been on Android 7.0 since February.
Sony is rolling out Android Nougat to the Xperia Z5 family, with the Xperia Z5 and Z5 Premium getting the update now. The Xperia Z5 Compact is expected to follow soon. This new update brings multi-window support, as well as a new home screen and improved battery life.
I have been trying to recover some deleted photos/videos with no success. I have tried numerous programs and apps. The closest I have come stops when my device shows that it is not rooted: I have not been able to do so as yet.
I was hoping to find a way to create a disk image of the internal...
I got the Z5 compact about 4months ago and it started doing trouble at least 2 months ago, which is super frustrating [emoji16]
Sometimes the phone stop responding and frees about 20 sec later but still not 100%.
Some apps just won't load or hang, including what's app.
Sony has taken to its blog to tell everyone which devices will be receiving the update to Android Nougat:
- Xperia Z3+
- Xperia Z4 Tablet
- Xperia Z5
- Xperia Z5 Compact
- Xperia Z5 Premium
- Xperia X
- Xperia XA
- Xperia XA Ultra
- Xperia X Performance
When I take a photo with my camera, sometimes the photo saves in the DCIM/100ANDROID folder as a DSC.jpg file, then sometimes it saves in the DCIM/.thumbnails folder as a 13 digit number jpg file.
What's the difference between these and why do they save in different locations?
We knew that Stamina Mode was coming back to Sony devices thanks to beta versions of the firmware going out to devices last month.
This week though, we've started to see the official Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update pushed to the Xperia Z5, Z5 Compact and Z5 Dual. Not only does this update...
Is there a setting that can wake my Z5C up and display that a message has arrived, such that I just need to swipe the screen to read the message? (My old Samsung Galaxy S2 did this for messages. I note that the Z5C does wake up, BUT ONLY FOR INCOMING PHONE CALLS!) :(
If you thought the Xperia Z5 Compact was too expensive then this latest sale might pique your interest.
Amazon has brought the price of both the Black and the White versions of the Xperia Z5 Compact from $500 down to $400.
Sony had previously pushed Marshmallow to the Z5 in Turkey and now it looks like they are expanding into more markets now.
The company is in the middle of updating the entire Xperia Z5 series to Marshmallow in Japan. Sony UK had previously said they are targeting a March 7th date to update the...
Sony Uk is planning to release the Marshmallow update for its Xperia Z5 series, Z4 Tablet, and Z3+ devices starting on March 7. There's no word when other markets will be treated to the same update, but it should be soon.
Sony took forever to release the Z5 and Z5 Compact into the United States. When they finally released it, they sold it at launch price and even removed the fingerprint scanner.
It's unclear if low sales of the Z5 and Z5 Compact influenced this price cut, but the Xperia Z5 is $60 cheaper and the...
Sony has brought their latest creations, the Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact to the US. Notably missing from the US variant of these devices is the lack of a fingerprint scanner. With support in Android 6.0 Marshmallow, this is a bit of a confusing omission for these top of the line devices.
We knew that Sony was bringing the Z5 and Z5 compact to the US, but we didn't exactly know when.
It's now been revealed that both of these devices will be available to US customers on February 7th for $599.99(regular Z5) and $499.99(Z5 Compact)
Sony has clarified that the Sony Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact for the US won't be coming with fingerprint scanners, which is a very odd decision. The fingerprint sensor was problematic due to its small surface area, but we wouldn't say the issue was so bad that it warranted exclusion altogether.
Sony has announced that they are finally bringing the Z5 and the Z5 Compact into the United States in February.
The Z5 Compact will run you $499 and the regular Z5 will be priced at $599 and both will be unlocked and run on GSM networks
Just wondering if anyone else has experienced major lag issues with their Z5C?
I've had mine a couple of months now and it just seems a lot slower than my old Z3C. Sometimes I can be waiting 10-15 seconds for the phone to respond and an app to open.
I'm not a majorly heavy user...
Sony recently took 12 different Xperia Z5 Compacts, attached them to a rig and recorded some 4K video from them all at once.
The took this footage and spliced together a 360-degree video and posted it up on YouTube to show everyone what they were able to do with the latest from Sony Mobile.
Sony has confirmed that the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact does, indeed, have a touch screen responsiveness issue. Thankfully it seems to be something that's addressable via software, as the company has promised a fix to come next week.
