I tried the 11, didn't like , rooted back to Android 10.
Tann Hauser, 19 Feb 2021I can confirm that. Updated yesterday to A11.
No troubles whatsoever. All working excellent.... moreUpdate:
After A11 update, Im breaking personal records here folks...
Same usage pattern, a 2 days worth of battery on a single charge with over 13 hrs of screen on time (on A10, I got 2 days and over 10 hrs of SoT). Thats about 30% increase in batterylife for me.
So praise and kudos to Sony for this update, it seems to only have improved the phone for me.
So I guess, if there are indeed any problems with peoples A11 updates, it seems not be any Sony fault, rather some app or your internet provider bloat.

Nothing we can do about it. I tried pretty much everything like removing unnecessary apps(via adb method), bloatwares, putting unused apps to deep sleep, etc but no improvemnt whatsoever on standby drain..

No troubles whatsoever. All working excellent.
Batterylife seems to be maybe even better for me now.
Only complaint I have is....I couldnt care less for A11 supposed added changes. Might as well have not updated to it.
Seems we have come to a point where Android updates lost meaning, and dont do a quack to enhance user experiences.

I have a Note 10 exynos and battery drain is awful. My XZ3 drains 2 to 3% battery overnight (8hrs or more) while my note 10 is 3% every hour.
Sony is no longer available in my country so i opted for samsung. I'd like to try X5II to play with manual camera settings.
I updated to Android 11 and no complaints except android 11 messes up controller support for games not only on Xperia phones. No overheating, battery or performance slowdown for me. I'm also a light to moderate user occasionally playing games.
It's just been 24 hours so I'll update if I notice anything.
Bought note 10 plus and regret it. I should have go for this phone instead for better standby drain and much smoother UI. My old xperia x compact does better than my n10+.
For those worried about battery/performance after Android 11 go to Xperia forums on Reddit or XDA. Don't run benchmark soon after updates and expect to see same performance levels, apps go through an "optimization phase" before they run at their best. See this https://www.reddit.com/r/SonyXperia/comments/lfz3s8/bench_scores_are_back_to_normal_android11/
I'm not saying there are no bugs or the OS is perfect but seems like there's lots of exaggeration about bad aspects of the A11 update.
Eldamri, 16 Feb 2021Hi Guys I see a lot of update related issues. I don't have this phone but i'm planni... moreHi i think i agree with you, the battery/responsiveness should be fine after apps have rebuilt the cache. See my previous post. I'll be updating soon.
One Youtube reviewer said this " most apps will recreate their caches the first day(depending on how many apps you have and start) they will run in background and eat CPU which makes the device a bit slower than usual and of course use more battery ..... " but after this battery should be back to normal
Network compatibility is not an issue since all versions of the Xperia 5 II have compatibility with my country's (UK) operators.
The real question would be: is there a significant difference between the XQ-AS52 and the XQ-AS72 models besides the internal storage? is there a reason for the one with more internal storage to be a lot cheaper than the other one? Will there be any significant problem if someone use different version in different region (except no 5G in US)?
I find the XQ-AS72 256GB (China, HK, TW model) to be cheaper ~+/-£569 on Internet Stores than the former XQ-AS52 128GB (European model) at £799 in UK.

My XQ-AS52 was fine with Android 11 as like Android 10, even fixed some issues. But, my screen got damaged by dropped from the stairs. Now ordered new one but XQ-AS72. I'm so scared after seeing all negative comments about Android 11. My concern, is it related to the different models like XQ-AS52 or XQ-AS72, or are they both same regarding to the performance?
Hi Guys I see a lot of update related issues. I don't have this phone but i'm planning to get one. Just curious, does any of you clear the partition cache after the update? this should fix update related issues like battery drain and slow responsiveness.
Please let me know, i'm currently stuck with my exynos note 10 and battery is not it's best suite.
SEUL8TR, 16 Feb 2021Why update too 11? Where you not happy on 10?
It's you people on tech sites who care and... morePhone is my work instrument and it has to be spot on. Security and other updates are crucial. Unless you want to get hacked or have malware on your phone etc. Why you buy new phone if you not bothered with any updates? Use Nokia 3310 instead...
My point is if I pay money for a thing it has to work as it should, with all updates, all functions. I don't need half baked product.
Android 11 sucks. In 8 hours overnight it lost 6%, while on Android 10, it lost 4%.

It's you people on tech sites who care and take updates so seriously, while 90% ain't bothered, neither am I.
Nothing is wrong, why update or fiddle, or looks like you're phone is your life?

Looks like restart helps to stop battery leakage. Will need to uninstall/reinstall all apps, see if that helps. Developer RAM option shows that almost 3.5gb of ram is used by OS! In my opinion it's way too much.

Most probably you ve got a memory leak, ie. some app you re using not being accustomed with A11...
What does your battery managment say? All apps running normally?
Go to your battery usage pattern and see whats draining the most juice. If its some app, delete, then reinstall.
Additionaly, go to advanced developer options, ram memory usage, see what apps are constantly active, foreground and background. From my experience, the answer always hides there.
Hope this helps.

And looks like they're not very responsive to the issues. It's midday now and its 3 hours from when I took my phone off charge and it is 42% I did one phone call (about 20minutes), some FB time (maybe 10mins max) and video call through Signal (10-15 mins). Phone is actually quite warm and you can see battery drops literally in front of your eyes! Now its 39% that's 3% down from what I mentioned above in like 5 minutes!
