When Japanese smartphone maker Sony originally announced its Lollipop update plans, the company’s Android smartphones except the Z-series were conspicuously absent from the list. Now, we know the reason why Sony failed to mention other devices. Turns out, the company has no plans to release Android 5.0 update for any of its Xperia E, C, T or M-series smartphones.
The company revealed its intentions in replies to various users on social media, when they asked when their Sony smartphone is getting the Lollipop update.
It is disappointing to see Sony ditching so many of its consumers without a major Android update, when companies like Motorola, update even their most affordable smartphones. We are hoping that Sony changes its stance and releases the update for at least some of the phones, but the actual chances of that happening are quite slim.
Does the lack of Android updates bother you? Will Sony’s revelation about no Lollipop update for E, M, T or C-series phones will account in your next smartphone purchase? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
