Soon after Google officially announced Android 5.0 Lollipop late last year, Sony promised to bring the new software update to all the members of the Xperia Z tribe. Furthermore, the Japanese phone maker said that they should roll out the Android 5.0 Lollipop for Sony Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z2 sometime in the first quarter of 2015.

If you happen to own a Sony Xperia Z3 then we have great news for you, as the Xperia Z3 Android 5.0 Lollipop update could be around the corner. According to the guys at Xperia Blog the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for Sony Xperia Z3 just got certified at WiFi Alliance. The certification is dated February 16th, so the update could roll out later this month.

As usual, the Sony Xperia Z3 Android 5.0 Lollipop update will be rolled out in phases, meaning that some of you would have to wait longer than others before being able to download and install the new firmware. When your Xperia Z3 becomes eligible to receive the new update, you should be able to notice a system update message in the notifications bar. Tap on it and follow the on-screen instructions. You can also perform a manual check under Settings > About phone > Software updates > Check now.

Android 5.0 Lollipop arrives with a plethora of changes and improvements. The new update introduces Material Design, Android Runtime, lock screen notifications, better battery statistics, multi-user support for phones, dynamic status bar, revamped notifications bar and quick settings, and other such features.

I strongly suggest to wait for 5.1! I used Lollipop 5.0.2 on the nexus 5 and I'm still using it on the nexus 10 and it sucks. That's partly why I switched to xperia z3. What are the problems? Too many, just google it.

Expectations:- It should be more secure. We should get the option to control the each application rights(Deny/Permit). Coz we could see so many application unnecessarily having so many rights on our mobile which may harm to us. I know so many people are not going for android phone due to this reason.!!

Expectations? I would like to see a radical overhaul of security!! When I install a "fart" app (or anything else), and it tells me it needs permission to read all my texts, know my location, use the network, and 101 things it should not be using, I want the ability to selectively DENY everything I do not want it to be allowed to use!!!
