2 years would over heat when apps are running, after the upgrade to 7.1.1 the camera does not work, ring tones only work on numbers you place on, blue tooth intermittently works. a lot of features were removed from when I got new. camera was good till upgrade or I call down grade. Theses problems others have the same complaints Sony says will have a fix for the ring tones.

Did you find a cure for the instant closing down issue?
Realy good Phone in the beginning but the batteri gets bad quite fast. Arter 2 years use i can no longer use The Phone without a powerbank conected and it gives upp randomly for no reason. The it can not be turnd on without a powersource even if it is at 90%.
Just a brilliant phone. I have had mine 3 years now. The battery is starting to degrade a bit. But have had no problems with it. Love the fact that you can attach a lanyard. I am a biker, and I have had it in the rain many times. Brilliant phone. I really hope Sony keep making these waterproof phones.
Great midrange phone. Had it since 2016. Now running LineageOS 14.1 aka Android 7.1.2. The battery *just* lasts a day, but I've had it two years now.

Help needed in making fingerprint more effective, when I use fingerprint it say to unlock using pattern despite making so many efforts it does not fully unlock with fingerprint. At one of Sony forums I got a tip of pasting tape n using but that does not work either any solution please.
I'm using this phone for the last year and a half. The camera was wonderful the first couple of months, but it's like it's taking worse and worse photos as the time passes. It started having some issues with freezing for the last 6months as well.
But I still think it's a great phone & I love its design
Great phone when I first got it, but the more you use it, and apps running, the phone gets wildly hot and kills the battery.
So the claimed battery life takes a knock.
overall its a great phone, using it now 2+ years and no real issue.
after 2 years of having the phone, i noticed even at 50%+ battery life it DIES. yes it dies and tells you with the icon drained battery but plugging it again shows the remaining battery .WTF? noticed it started flickering after the last update. the screen flickers whatnot and gets hot EVERYTIME! Sony has no say to this. The warranty's void and we seem to be in the dark. Sony telling us to buy another.
Using this fone fr last 3 days, feeling much relaxed that I managed getting this fone. I have used many cellfones but found this one as the best very good sound quality compact good cam in daylight I recommend this fone to anyone interested in a compact one. I did use z1 compact z3 compact x compact and now z5 compact, best is z5 x compact also not bad but the worst is z3 compact.
I have this phone for 1 1/2 year and works just fine, no lag, battery keeps me for two days.
The only downside, in my opinion, is the low quality of night photos.
The screen also seem rather small these days, I plan to update to a 5-5.2 inch compact from Sony - hope they'll make one this year.
