Sony phones currently without the latest version of Android are now getting Lollipop from today. The rollout starts with the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact smartphones and additional handsets will be added to the upgrade list over the coming weeks.

It was revealed late last year that the entire Z series of phones from the manufacturer would receive Android 5.0 in time, tablets too. But it is believed that the Xperia Z2 devices will get the upgrade next.

The first devices to get the over-the-air update are situated in the Nordics and Baltics, but further markets will follow soon after.

Sony will update on timings on Twitter through its @SonyMobileNews account.

Android 5.0 Lollipop will add a large swathe of new features and a refined design to the Xperia Z models, including multi user profiles, Android for Work and better storage control and customisation.

The experience will be blended with Sony's own user interface software.

An update for your specific handset might be dependent on your network too, as some may need to push the upgrade separately.

RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
