Sony made up our minds to only update only a handful of gadgets to Android 11, including the Xperia 1, Xperia 5 and Xperia 5 II. The Android 11 toughen has now spread to more international locations, nonetheless there are multiple complaints from householders of bugs and of regressive adjustments that Sony has constituted of Android 10.
Sony started rolling out Android 11 to the Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 a month early, having started with the Xperia 1 II in December. The firm launched Android 11 to the Xperia 5 before agenda too, as we reported practically two weeks ago. Now, the Android 11 rollout for the Xperia 1, Xperia 5 and Xperia 5 II has reached more international locations, upgrading a host of gadgets within the course of.
- J8110: 55.2.A.0.630 for UK unlocked, EE and O2 handsets.

Xperia 5 II
- XQ-AS52: 58.1.A.1.178 for UK unlocked, EE and O2 handsets.
Positively, Sony serene has a manner to scoot in its Android 11 rollout. Many XQ-AS52 gadgets and the XQ-AS62 variant of the Xperia 5 II within the US remain on Android 10, as does the Xperia 1 II within the US. The Android 11 updates for Xperia gadgets delight in there quirks and bugs, though.
Reading threads on r/SonyXperia, shall we embrace, displays that many of us are sad with the Android 11 update for the Xperia 5 II though and, by extension, the Xperia 1 II. Somewhat about a complaints stem from Google’s adjustments to Android 11, including adjustments to how the quick settings panel works when pulled down, and a revised power-button menu. Moreover, Sony has not integrated Google Pay within the power menu, suggesting that this can also very successfully be a Pixel unique feature. The notification bar now contains an choice to enter split-display camouflage with any notification, which is handy, if quite of untidy.
Alternatively, there are frequent complaints of Android 11 running more slowly than Android 10 and of battery life depreciation. Anecdotally, our Xperia 5 II repeated the notification colour every time a notification arrived. A reboot looks to delight in fastened this difficulty, on the other hand it don’t delight in came about within the important thing self-discipline. There is a power Always on Existing (AoD) advise too, the put a notification’s app icon would not seem on the AoD until the display camouflage is unlocked and re-locked. Confidently, Sony addresses this in an update because it defeats the AoD’s reason, currently.

The revised power menu will likely be helpful to of us who disclose Google Dwelling, and you will be in a position to also now screenshot from all over the Recents menu. Sony outlines what varied aspects Android 11 brings to its gadgets too, nonetheless they’re quite minor.
