Just earlier today, the first screenshots of the Sony stock Android trial known as “Concept for Android” were released, and already, a ROM of Concept for Android on Sony Xperia Z3 is being made available. Made for the Xperia Z3 with model number D6603, a review of Concept for Android was posted up by XDA Contributor, Jozinek, who also made a FTF file available for interested users to download and try for themselves. Check out his review video below:
As you can no doubt tell, Concept for Android appears to be as faithful to the stock Android experience as is probably noticeable by the average person. We were interested to know exactly how many proprietary Sony apps and functions have been left in there, however as XDA member user91 summarizes:
“By the way, the ROM itself is absolutely nothing to excited about. Take any stock Sony Lollipop ROM, take away all the reasons for buying this phone (no double tap to wake, low brightness, no display enhancements, no sound enhancements) – well the camera works, and that’s it.”
Clearly a glowing recommendation. Then again, for some, the possibility of going to stock Android on any phone is always an improvement, so if you’re still interested in trying this out, you’ll want to follow the instructions on the XDA forum page here.
