pika2000, 24 Sep 2016Considering how late the M and C series got marshmallow, I guess it's safe to say these phones... moreChinese vendors? They don't even provide updates lol.
At least Sony supports their flagship devices for a long period of time.
Xperia Z got to Android 5.1.1 before Galaxy S4 could.
Xperia Z3 was supposed to be the only 2014 flagship that was supposed to get Android N, but unfortunately the Snapdragon 800's GPU doesn't support open GL ES 3.1.
Sony is slow at updating their midrange phones, I agree. But is LG, Samsung or HTC any different?
hb666, 24 Sep 2016Here in india samsung has updated it j series and on series to marshmallow which there low tie... moreMost major manufacturers do that, like LG and Sony also.
But Motorola (aka Lenovorola) provides 2 major updates for their phones.
TeamAndroid, 24 Sep 2016entry lvl / budget phone - means no updates . only patch and bug fixes ... tell me who updates... moreHere in india samsung has updated it j series and on series to marshmallow which there low tier phones so atleast samsung provided atleast 1 major android version to its low tier phones
Sony famous for producing over-priced device with under spec.
So, they are dying slowly and steady... changing from Z to X, sooner would be V...etc
northwood, 24 Sep 2016I wouldn't say the E5 is an entry level phone, in my country the price is on same level as Gal... more130$ more or less ... on the link you have pricing in the UK, and UK phones usaly are slightly more expensve then in the rest of the europe...
yeah it's in the range of specs of J5 2016 which is also a budget phone ...only difference is that E5 is SONY's cheapest phone so it's definitely an entry lvl something that xperia E series are always been , while Samsung has even cheaper phones and with lower specs than J5 ...
TeamAndroid, 24 Sep 2016entry lvl / budget phone - means no updates . only patch and bug fixes ... tell me who updates... moreI wouldn't say the E5 is an entry level phone, in my country the price is on same level as Galaxy J5 2016 and certainly its not 100$ phone.
Considering how late the M and C series got marshmallow, I guess it's safe to say these phones won't get any updates. The least Sony could've done is provide the monthly security patches, but no. Even the chinese OEMs are doing a better job now. Sony is losing its value other than relying on fanboys of the brand.
I own xperia Z2, but I dont mind because of the update. I am satisfied with marshmallow, the phone works great. when I will buy new phone I will buy xperia 100%. go sony!!
northwood, 24 Sep 2016lol what about fresh E5 model?? No its staying in Marshmallow
Anonymous, 24 Sep 2016And qualcomm, they dont want to update the driverit's not about qualcomm driver..they said that they will provide it if necessary , and Sony was already working no Z3 nougat even preview was released....google is the one who actually prevents the update .
Saro, 24 Sep 2016This is better than their previous version update delays. Was expecting January update for my Z5I was expecting an even later one...now, this sounds promising!
I can only just hope that the N will fix the battery issues i have on my Z5 running 6.0.1...

northwood, 24 Sep 2016lol what about fresh E5 model?? entry lvl / budget phone - means no updates . only patch and bug fixes ... tell me who updates $100 phones these days LOL !? certainly not SONY,SAMSUNG,LG or HTC ... there is a reason for such low prices(besides the crappy hardware)...
