A few days back if you remember Sony tweeted with confirming that they are in final stage of testing Android Lollipop update for Xperia “Z” series users, while for other Xperia users fate of Android Lollipop update was hanging in balance till now but some tweets have come up from Sony which are stating bad news for those users.
As per few tweets made by Sony Xperia official account on Twitter, they mentioned that Android 5.0 Lollipop update will “only” be available for Xperia “Z” series users and not for other Xperia smartphones.
“NO” Android Lollipop Update for non-Xperia “Z” series users ?
Xperia devices other than Xperia “Z” series which were earlier expecting to get Android Lollipop included Xperia C3, Xperia T2 Ultra, Xperia T3, Xperia M2 Aqua, Xperia E3, Xperia E1, Xperia M2 but now it seems they won’t be getting it anymore.
Check below few tweets made by Sony Xperia regarding this (listed on Xperia Blog).
@VIVSNO Hi. We can advise that the Android 5.0 Lollipop update is going to be released for the entire Xperia Z series only, we do apologise.

This seems very vague to us Sony not giving Android Lollipop update to other Xperia smartphones other than Xperia “Z” series.
We have also tweeted to Sony to confirm this whether it is really true or not, awaiting their reply.
@sonyxperia Will Xperia T3, T2 Ultra, C3,E3,E1,M2,M2 Aqua get Android Lollipop update ? Will you roll it for non Xperia "Z" users also ?

Xperia M4 Aqua and Xperia Z4 Tablet is already running Android 5.0.2 update.
Sony has mentioned Android 5.0 Lollipop update for following Xperia “Z” series devices viz. Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia Z Ultra, Xperia Z1 (Z1s), Xperia Z1 Compact, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z3(Z3 Dual), Xperia Z3 Compact, Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, Xperia Z2 Tablet, Xperia Tablet Z.
If the above tweets are to be believed as firm words of Sony and they are not going to release new and stable Android update for other Xperia smartphones other than Xperia “Z” series then what is the point of releasing them in very first place ? Why not focus on selling on Xperia “Z” series only ?
We are still expecting from Sony to say this officialy on their blog also to clarify it in a better way rather than making tweets.
