Unfortunately for the Note 4 owners who bought this phablet from Verizon, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow is only a dream at this point, because the carrier has other plans – to release the 5.1.1 Lollipop update. The Xperia C4 and C5 will receive its previous update, 5.1 Lollipop. This means that Sony hasn’t kept its word when the company said that these devices will be updated directly to 6.0 Marshmallow.
While other carriers from the US already rolled out the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop to the Galaxy Note 4 devices, this firmware was delivered much later by Verizon. The users can finally take advantage of the features that this update comes with, such as Multi User and Guest Modes, Screen pinning, Android Smart Lock, Lock screen notifications, Amplified audio support, Raw, uncompressed images, the possibility to sync with TVs, watches and other devices etc.
Also, Android for Work will allow the users to separate their personal applications from those that are used for business purposes, and the Note 4 has received the Samsung Knox Platform, which protects their private and confidential information. The Amazon Widgets and Amazon App store have been removed, there are no more security failures and the performance of the device has been improved.
Sony was informing the owners of the C4 and C5 Ultra devices will receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update and the disappointment was big when these phones have been upgraded to 5.1 Lollipop. The E5343 model is the only Xperia C4 that hasn’t received this update yet, so if you own the single SIM card variant you’ll receive the build number 27.2.A.0.155, or the build model 27.2.B.0.155 if you have the Dual SIM card variant.
Also, the single SIM variants of the C5 Ultra device (E5503 and E5506) are getting the build 29.1.A.0.87, while the Dual SIM variants (E5533 and E5563) are getting the build 29.1.B.0.87 and the users can manually install the stock firmware using the Sony flashtool.
There’s no change log provided by Sony, so we’re assuming that the update comes with bug fixes and performance improvements, new animations, improved panel, quick settings icons, HD voice and dual SIM support.
