Besides Android 5.1.1, the update adds HD Voice, which bring high quality audio to the handset. It also adds the ability for users to make video calls, and allows them to use voice and data simultaneously.

The update also brings with it the latest Android security patches. Since the files are being sent out OTA on a staggered basis, you might not receive the update for a few days. There is a way to try to pull out the update. Go to Settings > About device > Software updates > Check for software updates. Verizon discontinued the Sony Xperia Z3v last August.

Verizon suggests that when you receive the notification that the update has hit your phone or tablet, you should make sure that you are using a Wi-Fi connection, or have a strong Verizon Wireless signal. The carrier also suggests that you have your battery fully charged, or make sure that the device is plugged in to an outlet before starting the updating process.

YES!!!! At long last, such an awesome phone! And now a stable update. They can say whatever they want the Z3V is quite an awesome phone. Waterproof, stereo speakers, a Camera the kicks butt if you know how to use it. Wireless charging, hi-fi audio playback, APT-X Bluetooth support, which is huge if you know what it is. And one of the most beautiful skins in the android world
