Sony Xperia Z5 Premium

Just as Samsung and LG tend to release software updates for their Android-based devices in Korea first (and Poland, for some reason), then the rest of the world, Sony seems to have finally begun the Xperia Z5 trio’s Marshmallow makeover in Japan.

Not just any carrier in the company’s homeland, since NTT DoCoMo comfortably leads in local subscriber numbers, hinting at this OS promotion less than a month back. Hopefully, the polished, non-Beta, Xperia UI-skinned 6.0 goodies will spread to the UK on Monday, as promised, despite that encouraging tweet from a couple of weeks ago being deleted in the meantime.

Surely, global rollouts for the Xperia Z5, Z5 Premium and Z5 Compact must follow soon, given Sony is yet to bump up a single product to Android Marshmallow, and these three are as high-end as things got before the Xperia X Performance was unveiled.

They’re Snapdragon 810-powered, even the diminutive 4.6-inch model, pack up to 3GB RAM and 3,430 mAh battery juice, and the Z5 Premium is capable of playing native 4K content… with certain limitations.

The Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact are available stateside since very recently, sans fingerprint sensors unfortunately, and they’d greatly benefit from Google Now on Tap add-ons, Doze Mode and App Standby battery life enhancements, as well as general performance improvements and security optimizations. But please, Sony, minimize the bloat that’s currently making its way across the Land of the Rising Sun.
