can anyone tell me is it better to stay on android 5 or to update to android 6 PLEASE for same opinion THANKS
I like this Xperia Z2 than the newly released devices by Sony specially the Xperia X series because they are now using MediaTek Chipsets SoC's. Xperia Z2 is using chipset (Qualcomm's Snapdragon 801) which is more higher than other chipsets (MediaTek) was used by the X series and its so disappointing. Sony is cutting their edge to become the durable and money worth devices

But I don't like the camera menu at all (personal opinion). And yes updating thru pc companion or flashtool is better than wi.fi ! I confirm that too! I used flashtool and all went good .Cheers
The new stamina update is way better than the 575 update. multi tasking got better. Although the much awaited Stamina mode is not same as Lollipop Stamina, it's rather that Low Battery Mode ie it switch off vibration, gps and auto sync for the app. The good thing that's added in the update is, now we can exclude app from Doze Mode very easily and excluding app from Doze also exclude it from Stamina Mode too!! People need to understand that Doze is inbuilt in Android 6 and its mandatory, Sony can't do about it and implementing dual battery mode thing is not possible.
for me- this update is quite fine or I should say Its good. I don't use battey savers so Stamina mode is always useless for me anyways. SOT is good, connectivities are good. Multi Tasking is good.
and what I observed is updating via PC Companion is always a better experience that FOTA update.
Did you made the 23.5.a.1.291 update? How is multitasking? Because in 575 update the multitasking is dead. I rolled back to 5.1.1 witch is the best till now. Waiting for any review.. Thank you
Had mine for 2 years now, and is very satisfied. Just keeps getting better. I am quite convinced this is one of the best sony`s ever..
Latest update of stamina bullshit just whipped my xperia Z2's ass off to the sky. Shame on sony shame on you. My SOT have reduced from 7 hrs to 4 hrs.. 630mb of total joke, Total joke. Are you taking us as ur enemy? So much annoying. Simply now I can't stand ny beloved 1.5 yr old z2 because of overheating, slow response and and freaking drainage of battery life. Get a life sony. You have lost your respect.
Just one extra note. The latest Xperia Z2 update is 650 MB and you don't even get a new wallpaper :(
Equinox Hydroid, 23 Aug 2016Bad news guys that Z2 and Z3 won't get android N update :(( Sony confirmsThat's not necessarily bad. Whenever they release a new version of Android, it comes with heating and battery life issues. I've just updated my Z2 and I'd rather remain with the last Android M version than going up one letter and being left updateless. See what they did to the Xperia ZL.

sultan , 18 Aug 2016I updated my z2(D6502) to marshmallow, but i am really frusted with its back camera, though i... moreI just bought a used Z2, which from a speed and stability angle, is superb! Very lovely phone to use, but like you, the camera is terrible. (I upgraded to Marshmallow as soon as I purchased it.) The quality of the camera in all situations is terrible, even the 1080P video in daylight is noisy and full of artefacts. If there is any light shining towards the camera, the image is washed out. Plus it is not possible to select 4K video mode.
Is my Z2 faulty (water ingestion perhaps?), is this Marshmallow, or are ALL Z2s like this?
Such a great phone otherwise!
