It’s almost impossible to be a major Android device manufacturer and not get flak at some point from disgruntled owners of this phone and that tablet. Either you roll out software updates with great delays (the most common complaint), or you give priority to a newer product over an older, more popular one.
Following a habitually late and timid start to Marshmallow promotions however, Sony kicked the upgrading machine into high gear recently, making it very difficult for the OEM’s fans to show any sort of dissatisfaction.
The Xperia Z5 family was of course the first to receive official and polished M treats, alongside the Z3+ handheld and Z4 Tablet. Shortly thereafter, select Z2, Z3 and Z3 Compact variants also jumped on the Android 6.0 bandwagon, and now, we’re hearing reports of more models following suit.
That’s right, the fully stable update is no longer available solely for configurations included in the Beta Program, with D6502, D6646, D6653, D6633 and D5833 versions of the Z2, Z3, Z3 Dual, and Z3 Compact phones scoring OTA UI makeovers.
Even the ancient and not-particularly-beloved Xperia Z2 Tablet, released back in spring of 2014, makes the leap from Lollipop to Marshmallow as we speak in both Wi-Fi-only and LTE-enabled flavors worldwide.
Unfortunately, the slightly newer and hotter Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is left waiting, so if you really want to be upset with Sony about something, there’s your argument. But come on now, nobody’s perfect.
