Download and install SONY PC companion.
Back-up your phone.
Run 'repair my phone' in the up-date section.
Hopefully you get a clean new install of Android6.
When re-installing from back-up, do NOT install apps, only private files like photos, contacts etc. Do a FRESH download of apps you need.
Before re-installing back-up and files, test the phone to be sure it is working as you want it to work.
My Sony Z3 Compact was working just fine for over a year. Now I got this software update for the latest Android 6.0. I would not go away so I installed after a few weeks of dismissing it.
Phone is hot all the time and battery is draining like crazy. Normally I barely would use up 50% in one day, now with same usage I deplete within one day.
I tried to turn-off NFC. Lets where that brings me. Any advise is welcome. Worst thing is this update is not reversible....

Both 1st and 2nd rep at the local SONY certified and recommended/requested service shop. About your issue with 'loose' screen - a far too common problem, and seems to be increasing! The glue used is a type of thermo-plastic (like glue-gun) and heat is needed to soften it and remove the screen. With the increasing reports of 'overheating' phones after latest Android-update (6) how will that impact the glue? You are lucky if you are living in a country where they take customer service seriously and wants to protect the SONY brand name, I'm not that lucky.

So I send my phone to Sony to repair I only ask for the screen and micro usb cover repairment they did a full check up and repaired for free I am just waiting for it to come back and I will see how they did it.
If your problems won't come to an end you should make sure a real professional person repairs your phone.
My Z3 Compact will be my last SONY ever!!
Twice in for warranty repair in 10 months of ownership. 25% of warranty time, phone in service center for repair. 1st rep: phone turned off when receiving calls+++= motherboard changed. 2. time: no back-button, no drop-down menu. Most likely error screen/digitalizer, but have not got that confirmed yet. Add to the grouses, an extremely bad and unprofessional service in my location: Malaysia. The phone might be high spec and high tech, but does not last for long, always need a back-up phone when it starts acting up!
In marshmallow SD card can be added to internal storage. But has sony provided this feature in their update ? I can't find it in my xperia Z3 compact ? Has anyone else done it on their phone ?
