I am tired of waiting for Android 7 update on My Xperia Z5 Premium
Whats the point in not rolling out an update and calling it a flagship phone
I dont understand

P.S. my Z5 is bug free from day 1 of Nougat update and im really enjoying it so far.

One sincere advice for xperia users. Don't upgrade your firmware. If there is bugs in your new firmware, I am sure you will stuck with this firmware for a year. Sony is too slow in fixing bugs.

I doubt if u ever buy sony phone please buy one and use before starting talking nonsense here... the huawei cheap and crap chinese brand is no match for japan technology product (as we often heard). Sony is start making profit now quarter by quarter and not making loss like a few year ago (eventhough previously higher sales). Mark my word, xperia xz premium will becomes the best flagship 2017 and the best seeling one defeating s8 and iphone 8.

The US models have no fingerprint functionality but I believe this is a software lock, the hardware is there. I'm still using my reader since 7.0 although I still absolutely hate the thing, very rarely it actually recognises my thumb.

And still the bluetooth issues persist, as it seems many people are noticing. It all depends on what you do with your phone on a daily basis if you'll be happy or not; Android 7 is quick and nice, I use lotsof bluetooth devices and half of them are becoming problematic since 7, so, different expectations.

Huh, exactly the case with my Z5C and bluetooth.

I have a Nokia 7110 somewhere. Screw modern everything.

Sony should get out of the mobile business like they did with laptops (RIP, VAIO). They haven't made a great smartphone since the Z3/Z3 Compact. Simply overrated by PlayStation fanboys on this site.

Both HTC and Sony had great designs but haven't come up with a beautiful one in years. Maybe since 2013-2014. Both brands are also overpriced and have QC issues as time goes by. If you want great design at an affordable price, better off with a Huawei like the P9 Plus or Honor 8 from last year.

I never listen to Sony and HTC fanboys. Alot of noise from them over nothing special and with problems later on.

That fixing is for nougat rite? but my z5 Premium still with Marshmallow. no any update to nougat. *sigh..

I performed factory reset in several times but without any result, this is not a solution. I cleaned the microphone mesh with isopropyl alcohol and the microphone is working now acceptable. i believe is a combination between software and hardware. This mesh is also a problem. Don't use something hard to clean the mesh, you will remove dust and water protection. I can say that i love my Z5, appreciate Sony job, but start to make me sad with this problem of microphone. Please fix this issue guys.

BOB, 11 Mar 2017also in Z5 the finger print feature has been removed after ... moreTrue that!

Every update makes the phone worse!...i remember the initial OS that had minor flaws which I could turn a blind eye on. but now the bugs have become more and more which has got annoying!

Guess mistakes were made :(

  • AnonD-652005

Sony Z5 is an joke. I had bugs when I tried pick up phone and it was impossible.

After that mini jack broke and problems started.... I was sending my device 7 times because wrong jack (I saw the screen lights from Jack socket), screen was not realty reacting, NFC wasn't working and after that phone back starter wibrwtijg... That means top speaker have some space inside so is some vibration...

Finally I need sell my Z5...

They don't want change device on brand new one.

So grats for you Sony Xperia Team.

Similarly there are many issues with Z5 premium. Bluetooth gets off, call log list shows only some letters of contact, two step toggle for mobile data,
