“Most users seem to be more concerned with a long delay of Lollipop than with safety issues – after all, the software was released three months ago and is yet to land on any Sony smartphones. The company, nevertheless, is adamant in their decision to deliver the update bug-free. It being one of the most significant Andoid updates, offering a complete overhaul of user interface called Material Design, this decision is more than understandable.”
The great effort allows getting best results. The Lollipop update actually did improve the lives of Xperia users.

All in all, Sony users are unlikely to regret the necessity of waiting for almost three months since the 5.0 Andoid Lollipop update was unveiled. And though Xperia Z3 Dual owners only got their update now, at least they can be sure that the updated OS will not crash because of errors in the code.
