Get a peek at the new soft keys that Sony will probably introduce alongside Android 5.0 Lollipop
posted by Peter K. / Jan 23, 2015, 2:03 AM
It looks like Sony itself teased the revamped navigation keys - these were spotted in a couple of new screenshots from Sony's recently updated Movie Creator app. Much to our surprise, Sony has not fully adopted AOSP's set of soft keys, which resemble the company's PlayStation icons more than anything else.
Of course, a multitude of other Lollipop features will certainly land on the devices slated to get the newest Android update, such as a new default runtime (ART), a revamped carousel-like recent tasks switcher, as well as numerous performance improvements. If you're wondering when Sony's going to updated your Xperia device with Lollipop, you can check out here.

Those look awesome, the circle looked kind of stupid.

I like the (central) circle shaped soft key, very PlayStation. I've had it on my Z2 for a while now, thanks to the free Xperia Lolipop lite theme.

Same I like the circle icon more It reminds me of app drawer button and Apple's home button This house icon looks somewhat out of place But more importantly Sony need to fix their camera processing, they have made good progress though considering the Z3's camera is now highly rated And updating their other icons and UI would be good too

but they have "small app" which IMO is a better alternative for split window!

I agree... Split screen is superior on big devices such as Phablets and Tablets... but on smaller devices (Z3 Compact, etc) it makes much more sense to use small apps... specially the way you can arrange and hide them quickly.
