Initialy, a lot of users were reporting issues after updating to Xperia Z5 Android Marshmallow. The roll-out was halted and the problems were resolved, after which the company then released the update again and has been providing updates to its older devices as well.

The Xperia Z3 models receiving the update are D6653 and D6646. Meanwhile, the Xperia Z3 Compact model number D5833 and Xperia Z3 Dual model number D6633 are also getting updated.

The new Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for Xperia phones is aroind 900 MB and comes with build number 23.5.A.0.570. It is the same one that was released to the other Z2 and Z3 variants.

    After upgrading my Xperia Z3 to Marshmallow, starting the phone became a problem. No signature tune is played, and the phone never goes automatically to where you input the pin code..
