Sony publishes changelog for Z2, Z3 Lollipop firmware update
A new firmware version of Android 5.0.2 Lollipop is currently rolling out to applicable Xperia Z2 and Z3 smartphones, and while it doesn’t bump the devices up to revision 5.1, it does bring some important changes to how the Xperia skin works on these smartphones.
One of the biggest changes is the “close all” button in the task switcher, allowing you to kill all app processes with one button press. Have a look at the others below, should you be a Z2 or Z3 owner!
– Ensured the lock screen / notification bar doesn’t indicate “no service” when the device has coverage
– Added a Sony feature; bringing back the “close-all-button” in the activity menu, so you can easily close all apps at once
– Unblocked devices with server policies (such as Exchange Active Sync for e-mail), to enable the new Lollipop lock-screen notifications
– Ensured the LED light is lit across all sound modes – and no longer offset by “silent”
– Made the necessary fixes to enable the easy movement of content from internal memory to external microSD card (something we saw affecting a few devices)
– Improved messaging functionality in Ultra stamina mode – some conversations could not be opened before in Ultra stamina mode
