I can personally attest to that as i faced the same issue.
Does that still apply to the Z5?
I'm from Singapore too and thats the only reason I'm holding back
It was still the pure stock 7.0 android from Google to z5 regardless. Nothing new.
Sony is one of the best android mobile phones,very stable software and durable.
Got nougat on my z5, it's awesome I love it, especially with the pixel x launcher. Very satisfied.
This game (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ea.gp.bejeweledskies) and others does not work after the update (Z5P) Android 6.0.1 32.2.A.0.305 to 32.3.A.0.376 Android 7.0
I think it's problms with Vulkan high performance, low-overhead, 3D API from Khronos. This should mean improved graphics with a lower CPU utilisation. Vulkan drivers shipped with Android Nougat firmware for select hardware, including the Snapdragon 810 chipset found in the Xperia Z5 series.
However, Sony has confirmed that the Xperia Z5 family does not have Vulkan driver support on Nougat firmware. The only Sony Xperia devices to support the Vulkan API are the Xperia X, X Compact, X Performance and the XZ. I hpe that the new update will fix this problem
Just as a heads up, it is always better to make a clean upgrade, not a "dirty" one.
Save or backup everything you need, hard reset the phone, then upgrade. This way you will not have any bugs or unwanted surprises.
Ohmz, 21 Feb 2017When did you update?Around a week back. Since then there were sudden freeze issues, sometime.
Mncdk, 21 Feb 2017As a minor update, it sure is big. Says 1260 MB on my phone. :PHmm, did you have Nougat before this 1.2GB update? I have a gut feeling that this one was your major Nougat update from Marshmallow.
They already have Android 1.4" Bezel update, they don't need any more...
