ReperaA, 26 Dec 2015update sony please lolipop 5.1.1 Write Yr Opinion In Official Sony's pages (forum, blog and ect). SOny doesn't read this forum/page I guest :)
User E4G, 23 Dec 2015Live With Walkman was updated in the last months of period 18 month :)Live with walkman was a midranger.E4/4g are entry level handsets.
So Sony doesn't suppot entry level handsets .more specifically this is a mediatek device.
I have never seen any manufacture updating mediatek devices except Android one devices.
My E4g has mtk6752.but gsmarena and other sites mention it has mtk6732.,which is right..?
User E4G, 23 Dec 2015Live With Walkman was updated in the last months of period 18 month :)live with walkman wasn't an entry level phone.it was a midranger. midrangers will definetly receive atleast one update by sony.
sony m4 aqua which is the midranger by sony in 2015 will get marshmallow next year may or june.
could be even later.
if you really want to clarify contact sony support.
i even asked sony through chat they said no update.
i posted on talk.sonymobile.com requesting to get an update. since even entry level phones by samsung have lollipop. sony removed my thread and request within one day.
so really disappointed myself as well.
plus there is no way of making a custom rom for this device since the recovery partition is too small can't flash the rom.

The life will ends? :D It's funny to read how many users panic about that, it's one of the silly thing... I don't care will get or no. I know, I know with new operating system we will get new features and ect., but it's silly to panic that u will get update - buy new phone and u will get all yr features :D

I had the E1. I regret buying E4 as it is stuck in kitkat. But I have to say it is an excellent device.
So sorry bro no update.

Sony has only updated one entry level device before.only the E1 was updated to kitkat.
So no lollipop or marshmallow update.
Pretty sure about it.
When I contact Sony they say they have no plans of updating either e4/4g.
Really sorry about it. No update forever unless we make a lollipop custom rom for yourself.

Be patience and we will know get Lollipop/Marshmallow or no E4G. I believe that Sony will update E4G into Lollipop. Marshmallow maybe will not get, but Lollipop really must get. Sony like to wait into end of period (If i'm not wrong it's 18 months from release of model), why Sony waiting (by the way I mean budget models update process)? I think coz update process is really expensive process, so my personal opinion Sony don't waste money for budget smartphones to create more that one operating system version. That's why my personal opinion Sony creating for budget smartphones only for new, but not ewest or latest operating system. For example: Live With Walkman came with Ginerbread, but was updated only into Icecream (at this time newest operating system was Jellybean). Xperia M came with Jellybean, but most expert surprise was updated just into newest version of Jellybean (at this time was latest version Kitkat). The same I think will be with E4G, this smartphone will get Lollipop, but will not get Marshmallow :) I think u getting that I wanted to say ;)

Sorry I talking about Google Play versions which is official. This version is not supported for E4G yet. That's why I asked about Lollipop. Or this FIFA 16 version working just from Lollipop :)

Sony already have a huge list of Z ,M , C series phones to update to marshmallow.
They will probably announce a new E series during CES or during February or MWC.

It works on Android kitkat.
You have to sideload the apk and data.
