After the android 11 update, my fingerprint sensor finally works perfectly. The only issues I have experienced are time and notifications errors on always on display. Today i received a little extra update for android 11 which immediately seems to have solved this problem. Battery life is still perfect. I am very happy with my phone now :-)
To add to my previous comment, I forgot to mention one minor thing. Before updating to Android 11, I have used the developer settings and a different accent colour than the default one. After updating to 11 I have noticed the accent colour option in the developer settings is gone. It will remember the setting you have used before the update, but you cannot change it because the option is gone. I did a bit of research on this on the internet and it seems this is an issue on phones from other manufacturers too, related to the stock Android. Maybe this will get changed in the future, but I have my doubts. It doesn't bother me as much, because I like my current accent colour, but it is a bit of a dissapointment, since I was actually hoping there would be more accent colours to choose from, instead the option is completely gone. So if you use a different accent colour, make sure you choose the one you will be stuck with after the update. It may be also possible that the colour will revert to the default one after restarting or some next update, it was like this before.
I have updated my Xperia 5 to Android 11 (from Android 10, no factory reset or similar stuff) and no real issues. However, I didn't notice any real improvements, so I think more cautious users can afford to wait a bit with the update.
I have noticed the SD card is somewhat slower, not sure if it's related to the update though. If you have problems with the battery life, I recommend to disable the Digital Wellbeing app (I do recommend to disable it anyway, if you don't need it specifically, because it's just a battery hog mostly). I am pretty sure I did disable it after the update to Android 10, but it was enabled again after the update to 11, so the update may reenable it.
Have received A11 update. Installed it on top of A10 without hard reset. Everything works good so far.
