Android 5.0.2 pushed out for Sony Xperia Z1, Xperia Z1 Compact and Xperia Z Ultra

Android 5.0.2 pushed out for Sony Xperia Z1, Xperia Z1 Compact and Xperia Z Ultra
Android 5.0.2 is now reaching the Sony Xperia Z1, Sony Xperia Z1 Compact and the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. The update is being disseminated to certain regions only, and offers build number 14.5.A.0.242. The update includes the new Material Design, Lock Screen notifications, the new 64-bit ART runtime compiler that will open apps faster, new "Recent Apps" screen, Project Volta for extended battery life, and more.

Since the Android 5.0.2 update is rather hefty, we would suggest that you get hooked up to a Wi-Fi connection before starting the updating process. In addition, you should have your battery charged to at least 50% before downloading and installing the file.

We have some screenshots showing off the new Android 5.0.2 look for the Xperia Z1 which you can check out for yourself. Just click on the slideshow, below.

Thanks for the tip!

As I said on a previous post Sony will be late to the lollipop party but it will have the most devices running the latest version of android! Might I add they have given us a very smooth lollipop build it's fluent ,fast and worth the wait definitely.

yeah i wonder how many flagship Sony has compared to the competition? maybe that part is obvious why there's gonna be more lollipop update. Sure its worth the wait, but is it a fail and disappointment by sony? it sure is, when the rest of the competition updated their phones months before sony with a smooth build aswell. If all sony fanboys praise sony like that, then sony will never learn.

Probably not. Not sure if tmobile will update an almost 2yr old phone. After the warranty you could root
