How many Android users around the world, including the owners of Sony smartphones are waiting for the day when Android 6.0 Marshmallow will be released? Fortunately it seems that there will not have to wait long for the release of the update that, apparently, should take place shortly. Recall that for the Sony Xperia Z5 the update is already present, but there are still many smartphones on the list.
In fact, many people who own the Sony Xperia Z5, in Europe, have reported receiving the Marshmallow update via OTA but, unfortunately, these have downloaded Marshmallow 6.0, not 6.0.1 (the latest version of Android). This means you do not have access to the latest emoji and other bug fixes.
Several members, however, have reported problems with access to the Google Play Store, from the moment they have downloaded and installed the update. Sony, after receiving all reports, it suggested to perform a factory reset, but apparently this does not resolve the problem and therefore does not allow you to download new apps.
The solution at the time, would be to install the update via PC, and then using the software. However, Sony is working on a fix that we do not know when it will arrive. The company, remember, moved a bit late in the release of the update, and this is nothing new, since Sony is known for being one of the last companies to release Android updates for its phones.
This time, it seems that Sony has a valid reason for this delay. The Japanese company has wanted to carry out tests to bring the new Android on old hardware (like the Xperia Z2, Z3 and Z3 Compact), finding that the Marshmallow Beta was clobbered on these devices. Sony, in this period, was also involved in the launch of new smartphone market, another reason for the slowdown work about Android updates.
Unfortunately, the beta version had some bugs that caused malfunctions, such as Bluetooth audio problems and Double Tap to wake the screen. The good thing about this business is that the Japanese company has been made aware of these problems, and promised to get to work to ensure the absence in the final version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Despite this, many owners of Sony smartphones are still waiting for the Marshmallow update that should improve the performance of phones: will be equipped with Doze function, which increases battery life in standby time, and many other features, but do not expect Stamina. It is also expected to improve copy-paste function, and will allow users to store their passwords in Chrome.
