After uprading to Marshmallow - UI is smoother; battery lasts longer even if the Stamina Mode was removed after the update; front cam makes finer images; the only thing I don't like is it takes time to connect to pc companion everytime I want to transfer images to pc... They should fix it soon,....
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2016Buy Z3. It is a little older but has superb battery life.It's true
I like this phone because its camera auto focus speed is too fast 0.03 sec.
Devastated this may well be the last of the Z line handsets. Just as Sony seemed to be getting it right aswell. Z2 last couple years has been flawless but I cannot defend Z5/Z5 Premium against the S7 edge. The new X series does not stack up either. Here's hoping for a Z6 someday.....
Carlo, 11 Mar 2016Upgraded to marshmallow, finger print unlocking doesn't work. Anyone having the same issue?Mine is working perfectly like before (after updating to Marshmallow). Try to remove the previous record(s) and add your fingerprint records again. See if it solves the issue.
The battery is not that great for web and video playback. SMH. Battery life is very very important in all smartphone! I'm looking for a good phone with good battery to replace my lg g4. aahhh can't find any phone out here with good battery. stupid
The power management option will be no longer available with the new update and it has been replaced with a new feature called Doze Mode.
Doze mode suspends battery-draining network activities, such as location services, syncing and Wi-Fi® scanning in the background when you have not been using your device for a long time. Phone calls and text messaging (SMS) are not affected.
Doze mode is activated when all of the following conditions are met:
Â•Your deviceÂ’s screen is off.
Â•Your device is not charging.
Â•You have not used your device for more than 1 hour.
Doze mode is cancelled when you resume using the device. Doze mode is also paused periodically when the device is being updated.
Tip: This feature is enabled by default and is recommended for best battery performance.
You can, however, make exceptions for certain applications. AndroidÂ™ 6.0
To make exceptions from optimisation
1.From your Home screen, tap the Application screen icon.
2.Find and tap Settings > Battery usage.
3.Tap the menu button (three vertical dots) and select Battery optimization. A list
appears showing applications that are not optimized.
4.To add applications to this list, tap Not optimized > All apps.
5.Tap an app, then tap Don't optimize > DONE. This setting is valid for both Doze mode and App Standby.
