    So according to the Sony CES presentation that just happened, it appears that they plan to release Lollipop to Z3 and Z3v "Next Month".

    That works for me! Let's just hope Vzw pushes it through relatively quickly and all is stable.

    Did they specifically say the Z3V? From the few articles I have seen it really just says Z3 lineup.

    I only followed the transcripts from AC , so not exactly sure what was said. However, apparently they brought up the partnership with Verizon and T-mobile just prior to saying that the entire Z3 lineup will be updated next month.

    I'm a z3 owner on T-Mobile, most of us with carrier branded phones expect a 1-3 month delay after the release in February. The release in February is for the unlocked version of the phone.

    From KnowYourMobile.com on 1/6/15...

    Where’s My Lollipop? When's Your Phone Getting Android L?

    Sony has revealed its plans for upgrading to Android Lollipop and there is good news for all those who bought Sony in the past few years.

    If you own a Sony Xperia device and it’s part of the Z series then you’re in luck. Sony has quite an impressive list of handsets it will be updating to Android Lollipop. Here’s the list:

    The Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia Tablet Z, Xperia Z1, Xperia Z1S, Xperia Z Ultra, Xperia Z1 Compact, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z2 Tablet, Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3v, Xperia Z3 Compact, and the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact.

    Phew.

    First up for Android Lollipop is the Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition handset. Rollouts for the rest of the range will begin in early 2015 and it’ll all kick off with the “core Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z2 series”.

    We don’t know exactly what that means yet, but we can safely assume this year's Z3 range alongside the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet will be seeing the update first.

    If you’re hoping for another handset it is unlikely Sony will add anything more to this list. Based on previous experience Sony usually creates one list of updates and gets right to work at updating those listed without looking back.

    A Sony executive has now revealed more precise details of the company's update plans for the Xperia Z3 flagship. At CES 2015, Sony COO Michael Fasulo announced the Xperia Z3 would be updated to Android Lollipop 5.0 at the start of February.

    Not Lollipop-related, but there is a system update available... NFC and Google Play HD improvements, etc.

    No VoLTE (smh!) and again, no Lollipop update.

    I'm in the same boat. But I want them to release first and foremost a stable OS. So if Lollipop isn't stable, I'm totally okay sticking with KitKat.

    With all of the talk about Sony exiting the smartphone business, I hope we can still squeeze out a VOLTE update even if it's not Lollipop.

    I have a feeling us Z3v users won't get lollipop until the summer. My only real concern is lollipops effect on battery life.

    This Sony blog below says in around 2 weeks.

    Edit: I think it will roll out sometime in April or May at the latest.

    [UPDATE] Starting our Android 5.0, Lollipop rollout: Xperia Z3 & Xperia Z3 Compact | Sony Smartphones

    Sony claims to not be responsible for the ROM on the Z3v though so who knows.
