The smaller version of the famous Galaxy Note 3 in India is being upgraded to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and the update is available over-the-air. The Galaxy Note 3 Neo was released exactly two years ago and last time, it was running on Android 4.4.2 KitKat. As for the Xperia C4, it was supposed to receive the latest 6.0 Marshmallow update, but Sony changed its mind and sent the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop firmware instead, disappointing its fans.
The Indian owners of a Galaxy Note 3 Neo phablet who haven’t been notified yet that the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop is available for download, they can manually check for the update by going to Settings > About Phone > System Update. This update is 950 MB in size, but it requires at least 3GB of space in order to complete installation. Samsung has announced last year that this smartphone will receive Android Lollipop update and started pushing it out in India, but more devices worldwide will benefit from this trait.
The Galaxy Note 3 Neo came loaded with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and it featured a smaller screen of 5.5-inch supporting a resolution 1280×720 pixels. Inside, it has a hexa-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz, which is based on an Exynos 5260 chipset and it’s coupled with 2GB of RAM. On its back, it has an 8MP camera with LED flash, HDR and Full HD video recording, while the front camera is 2MP and has a BSI sensor.
The Xperia C4, alongside the Xperia C5 Ultra are two smartphones that should have been upgraded to Android 6.0, but Sony decided to not skip the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop firmware. So far, 5 out of 6 versions of the Xperia C4 have been updated, only the model E5343 was excluded. Sony Mobile considers it a major update, as it comes with enhancements and improvements and Google brought support for multiple SIM cards and Device Protection, which will protect the user’s data when his/her device gets stolen. Also, the users can join WiFi networks and pair their devices with other via Bluetooth, as this option can be found in Quick Settings.
