AnonD-183089, 10 May 2016Almost a month and sony announced that marshmallow started rolling out to D6503 model but noth... moreI dont think there is a certain problem but in Marshmallow 6.0 there is no Stamina mode and i see that is a big problem for Sony but they announced that its will coming back, but really Marshmallow is very fantastic i really loved it has many features, i see you have to try it
A few bugs with the Marshmallow update :
- Wifi range has reduced
- In the Album, camera pics display in separate folder (100 ANDRO) for pics taken before an after update even though storage folder is the same.
- Default email app only runs POP3 mail

prax593, 07 May 2016Bought the Xperia Z2 US version in Dec 2014 and I must say that it is a good looking phone wit... moreI've bought my Z3 with 900$ + SanDisk Ultra 128GB SD card with 100$. And I don't regret. Sony phones are super. Maybe you are aggressive user. Because my Z3 is 1 year old and I don't faced any issues.
Bought the Xperia Z2 US version in Dec 2014 and I must say that it is a good looking phone with solid features and snappy performance. Screen is clear but dust tends to collect and stick on the surface easily. Call clarity is good especially coming from the company with "Walkman" heritage. Also, the phone is waterproof with well sealing charging port, sim and memory card slots.
However, as of this day, within 1.5 years into its life, one morning, I experienced ghost touch issues where the "back" button was automatically pressed repeatedly. Hence, one could not open anything on the phone as it would revert back to the "Home" screen. Then, the ghost touch issue disappeared all by itself and the bottom portion of the screen containing the "back","home" and "recent apps" virtual touchscreen buttons stopped working completely. Rest of the screen is working as of now.
Took it to the authorized Sony service center in India and they refused to accept the phone saying that it was US version and cannot be accepted for service even if I am willing to pay for it (weird policy). Then, took it to a non-authorized service shop and they suggested complete replacement of front touchscreen as remedy and would cost about 40-50% of the phone cost. Was not sure about getting it serviced from a non-authorized shop.
Decided to take a chance with using an app to remap the three non-functioning on screen buttons to physical buttons on the phone such as camera button for home, volume up/down for the home and recent apps functions respectively. Currently, am managing to use the phone in this way until the rest of the screen stops working some day.
While technical glitches are possible in any technology, would have expected more service options from Sony and would expect a $450 phone to work for at least 3 yrs if not 5 yrs. If the life of this phone at $450 a piece is less than 1.5 yrs under mild use in terms of calls and other functions, I rather buy a cheap android phone of similar capacity for half the cost + similar specs and change the same every other year.
Where's quality for your brand, Sony?
vbr, 28 Apr 20166.0 upgraded How to copy files to pendrive through otg cable..,no option in file managerI am using Total Commander file manager to copy, move or other file operations on my z2[D6502] and it is working fine in all platforms of kitkat, LP, MM. You can check and will be satisfied with Total Commandner apk.
AnonD-531330, 28 Apr 2016Anyone from INDIA who has received an OTA update for Z2 D6502? I've downloaded the update thri... moreI have upgraded my z2 to MM during last week of April 2016.
Update file downloaded and updated without any problem in the first attempt itself.
I feel camera is not functioning good[images are blurred in the auto mode or in any other modes, long charging time - more than 6 hrs for full charging[though "charging rapidly.." appears on screen].
The camera tests [front and rear cameras] inbuilt in the z2 failed, while all other tests have passed. In fact I had not tested camera test earlier, since camera was ok.
Power saving mode Stamina and Ultra stamina modes absent in MM, while in LP, in Ultra stamina mode we cannot make calls, but only receive incoming calls, though Sony claims basic phone functions are available in Ultra stamina mode. The Sony service centre could not fix it.
Upgraded version of Total Recall software only functions in MM, whereas any earlier version of TR apk used to work fine in LP or KITKAT.
I use ultra z & Xperia z2 but still 5.1.1 no upgrade to 6.0.0
Malaysia when update Xperia
n0-way, 07 May 2016Give it a week. You will see the problems. And I must add: no more multitasking . . When I try... moreits 10 days already, I don't know why u had problem with the update. I had been reading XDA thread too, and I too upgraded it with damn fear in my mind regarding update. But it is very opposite of what i read atleast for me. I am a power user, and I seriously loving it more than LP.
To all of you wondering where the new update is, I'd rather waste some time reading as many opinions as possible before I upgrade my Z2 and regret later.
I can't show my gratitude to Sony for upgrading the Xperia ZL to 5.1.1 and ruining the battery life and not upgrading the same model anymore. Congratulations! Yes, I'm being sarcastic here.
As I said quite a few times before, failed upgrades really leave me wondering which brand to buy next, even once again having no issues with my Z2 and being Japanese myself.
I'm not saying that upgrading the Z2 to Marshamallow is a bad thing to do. I´m still doing a lot of research on this until the upgrade is available.
