New features in Android 5.0 Lollipop update for Sony devices

  • Fresh, streamlined looks – based on Google’s material design, but retaining our minimalistic approach to interface and application design.
  • New look notifications and lock screen – with fully customizable settings, so you only get the information you really need.
  • Multi user profiles and guest mode – making it easy for family and friends to use your device, or the creation of dual environments for work and play.
  • Android for Work – not only are business-ready Xperia smartphones and tablets unique devices for work – with waterproof form factors, great battery life and productivity features – they will now also be part of the Android for Work ecosystem.
  • Better storage control and customisation – with the option to easily move applications from internal memory to SD card – giving you more control over your content, particularly useful for devices with slightly less space.

Roll out for all these devices may vary across different carriers and countries.
