Xperiablog.net wrote about this function that after update we can use SD card memory like phone memory and all data apps we can transfer to sd card. Maybe u right if this function u didn't found in marshmallow 6.0, maybe will be later :)
More about that I found here: http://www.xperiablog.net/2016/03/10/how-important-is-adoptable-storage-to-you-in-android-marshmallow/

Yes, I'm using the thirdparty app called "Easy Touch". I used it to lock my screen to prevent ruining the power button due to overpress it.

But if ur using a thirdparty app to lock ur screen, that wer the issue start to re-occur. U cannot use the fingerprint scanner, instead, it will swipe the screen and you have to manualy type or draw ur lock screen pin or pattern.
So in order for the fingerprint scanner to work, u have to use the powerbutton. This is a known issue not only in sony. But to all marshmallow version.
Im hoping to fix this soon. Cause third party app are very useful specially on turning off the screen.
Guys,check your battery performance. Maybe theres some unnecessary app running. Check wifi and data. For most of settings, thery are always active even when device is sleep, tf this is the case, battery will drain faster.

Basic of estimating time for battery is your usage pattern.If you use phone more it tries to predict remain battery life time more accurate according your usage so the time with reduce and if you use phone less then the time will increase.
Alkordi, 13 Mar 2016Don't do it it's bad version you will lose all good options i actually agree in a way...lots of good features are gone with marshmallow...quite annoyed that there is not stamina & utrastamina anymore...i also find that the battery life is a lot poorer since marshmallow update. not sure why since its supposed to have a doze mode or something.

i bought z5 few days ago, n i realized that battery draining is more faster than i imagined... one day hav to charge more than 2 times.... i just use normal apps like FB, Wechat, and Whatsapp.. wat make it drain my battery so fast.. wat should i do guys? :(
Recently, I have upgraded my Z5 to MM 6.0, everything is fine and it become smoother, the problem that I facing for now is the fingerprint security. For Lolipop, I can use my fingerprint to UNLOCK the phone, but now(Marshmallow) I only can use my fingerprint to swipe the lockscreen to my second security system. For example, I have set a PIN security as my second security system, then when I use my fingerprint, my lockscreen pop to the PIN security system
Anyone cn help me??

I have quickly made my research both on the internet and on my phone, and i can confirm that the feature isn't present on 6.0 Marshmallow on my Z5, however, it is available on Sony's Concept that is running on the Z3 series. It might become available in the 6.0.1 update, but not just yet.

Thanks in advance.
I've upgraded to Marshmallow a few days ago here in the UK, and i gotta say that it was worth having the long wait for it. I was fine with 5.1.1, but after having 6.0, i can assure everyone that it's safe, and it's really worth to upgrade.
The phone itself became a lot smother, faster. Loading times are much, much faster, and the camera also became a lot better/faster once again. The performance has also improved, and with the new Doze feature built in, the phone can last +10-20% more with heavy use. I realised that the charging time is a little bit slower, but who cares if the charge of the phone will actually last much more?! :) If you have any question, just press reply on this comment, and I'll try to help you out regarding of the update.
PS: There are a few things that needs to be fixed, but nothing major to be honest.

for nonstop Skype, considering max brightness, max volume, and ofcourse data/wifi is on, it could last for about 3hrs to 4hrs bro.
So I've got an iPhone 6 at the moment and I find myself on Skype quite a lot of my day, I need a smartphone that is going to have the battery life to cope with Skype calls for longer than 30 mins! Anyone got any feedback about the Sony with Skype? Does the battery hold out? Thanks :)

anyway, theres a good improvement on the performance of the Z5 after the update, like app opening is faster than lollipop, transitions are way smoother and snappier than lollipop. no more lags when going back and fort from home screen to app drawer. Sony's battery optimisations disappeared. like stamina mode, ultra mode, etc., but for sure they removed it for some reason ( so far I don't have any problems w/the battery. battery life can go up to 1.5days for moderate(70% of the time) to heavy(30% of the time) of usage).
so yes, give it a try bro.
Guys, should I update my Z5 to Marshmallow 6.0?? I saw a lot people said that "Sony takes long time to release it but there is nothing new", "external memory card become useless", and etc.
Had this phone for over a month now. I don't have any issues, Camera is great (struggling in low light shot though but you can go to Manual mode and do some tweaking for low light shots). and after the update to marshmallow, everything feels much smoother and faster. one example is when opening the camera app it is way faster than in lollipop. for the battery, I still got the same result in lollipop. 2days=light to moderate use. 1.5days=moderate use. 0.75 - 1.0day = heavy use.
overall. This is a great phone, even greater after the Marshmallow update. and I'm looking forward for some more improvements (Android N update).
Camera is great, only when you know how to use it well. but if your too lazy to do some experimentation and just want results right after your shots, you better go to the other brands like Samsung or LG w/c has lots of post processing for photos.

recently my Z5 got some battery problem, maybe I overused it these fews days. Last time when I fully charged my Z5, the estimated battery time is 2days above, just now when i fully charged my Z5, the estimated battery time decrease to 1 day 9 hours. Can anyone explain what is the problem? Should I send it to the service centre or do a factory reset? I'm pretty sure that the Stamina Mode is activating all the time.
