Samsung and LG do not coddle their users. Samsung even do not plan to release security updates for older phones. However Sony has different strategy. How does it look?

Sony company has decided to provide Android 6.0 update to not only Z series. The update will be available also for others models. There is no more beating around the bush. Here is the list of smartphones which will be updated to Android 6.0:



  • Xperia E1 (currently Android 4.4.2)
  • Xperia E3 (currently Android 4.4.4)
  • Xperia E4 (currently Android 4.4.4)
  • Xperia M2 (currently Android 5.1)
  • Xperia M4 Aqua (currently Android 5.1)
  • Xperia M5 (currently Android 5.0)
  • Xperia C4 (currently Android 5.0)
  • Xperia C5 Ultra (currently Android 5.0)
  • Speria T2 Ultra (currently Android 5.1)
  • Xperia T3 (currently Android 4.4.2)
  • Xperia Z (currently Android 5.1)
  • Xperia Z1 (currently Android 5.1)
  • Xperia Z2 (currently Android 5.1)
  • Xperia Z3 (currently Android 5.1)
  • Xperia Z3+ (currently Android 5.1)

The step done by Sony looks like Christmas present 🙂 How does it look at the competition? HTC has announced that 6.0 version will be available for:



  • HTC One M8
  • HTC One M9

In case of LG, we will get Android 6 for four smartphones:



  • LG G3
  • LG G4
  • LG Flex
  • LG Flex 2

The list from Samsung is impressive, but it includes only new models:



  • Galaxy Note 5
  • Galaxy Note 4
  • Galaxy Note 4 Duos
  • Galaxy Note Edge
  • Galaxy S6 Edge+
  • Galaxy S6 Edge
  • Galaxy S6
  • Galaxy S6 Duos
  • Galaxy Alpha
  • Galaxy Tab A

In my opinion Sony rocks in this area. Unfortunately we do not how long our new smartphone will be supported and updated when we buy it.
