Zed, 07 Aug 2017Did u updated to Nougat using pc/just updated it by using wifi?PC, within Sony's PC companion program. im not recommending doing an android update over the wi-fi.

Well the camera still takes a good 2 seconds to process certain photos, especially backlight correction mode (heavy hdr) ones. Other than that, at night the horrible superior auto blue\red tint has been reduced significantly. It's still there but nothing you can't fix within Sony's picture editing.
Sound is the same hun, no differences and not even close to the loudness it had at android faulty version 6.0. Faulty because you could bypass Sony volume control, but damn the speakers were very loud. Like w995 era loud no kidding. I don't know why Sony doesn't let the speakers reach their full potential. They can get 40 to 50% louder without distortion and worry about damaging em. Same goes for the camera, I still don't have manual controls, and it's a flagship!
All it takes is a software update.. get your balls in action Sony!
Im currently torn between the Z5 and the Galaxy A5 2017. I understand the Z5 has Nougat 7.1.1 and there has been a fix/patch on the battery life bug related to the Movie Creator app. But does it now have the means to challenge the excellent Exynos processor (and Grace UX optimisations) of the A5 2017? (The Samsung one might have an older Marshmallow software but based on tests battery life has been excellent + the water resistance albeit a so-so camera.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 07 Aug 2017Maybe because of XPERIA Z5's software, since it is the only one having the issueBut both the Z5, X & XZ have all the Nougat 7.1.1 update. Could it be because of battery capacity? Or the light Sony skin/software laid on top of Android?

Apart from the improved battery life have you noticed any subtle (or incremental) improvement on the app loading, camera (oh the endless issues of the camera and I'm not talking about the overheating issues) and say the audio/speaker sound? * coz I heard the 7.1.1 update of the Xperia X somewhat made the speakers "louder".

That smartphone u are talkimg about have a 5000mah battery. Comparing to this this only have almost half the capacity of the P1's one. Plus this chipset is notorious of overheating, which will also make the smartphone throttle and affect battery life

i'm really shocked how bad battery is
