One of the best options in Sony Z5 compact was battery's long life (stamina, ultra stamina) in previous version software but in the new version we lost that and battery life it's not enough for 24h standby without doing anything
Bring back that
Got the Sony Z5 compact from Clove UK a week ago. I was a IPhone user the last 4-5 years.
The device is great Android is great. What was I missing all this years!!

I did, on Lollipop. And I noticed that the only app that was draining my battery faster was...Greenify. Ain't it funny?
According to my experience, using Greenify and Clean Master on your phone it's like hiring a pedophile babysitter for your children.
AnonD-510050, 12 Mar 2016okay if you said it's draining your battery so...how many hours it takes ? if you are using ... moreI'm doing the same usage as before. Not a hardcore user. The opposite. I had 5.30 to 6 hours screen time and now it has dropped to 3.30 to 4 with exactly the same setup and use. To give you an example, the last week before the update, I had 124 hours the device unplugged (batterybot app) and still had 27% battery remaining. Now, I can't even reach 80 hours. If anyone knows a way to roll back to Lollipop, please let me know.

AnonD-305169, 10 Mar 2016brother if u really love xperia compact phone them u buy its from a united kigdon online shop,... moreDude, thank for advice but I have bought Z3Compact just 2 weeks ago. So, now no point in ordering new phone. I don't think the international model will have valid warranty in india though.
AnonD-510050, 03 Mar 2016so...
you didn't face any "LAG" problems with Z5C ?lag issue is fixed after MM update
WARNING. DO NOT UPDATE YOUR PHONE
If battery performance is your top priority, do not update to MM.
Sony's amazing STAMINA MODE has been totally replaced by Google's awful DOZE MODE. Battery life on my device has decreased dramatically
Don't say that you haven't been warned.
I'm trying to find a way to go back to Lollipop.
I come from a Nexus 5 and I am a power user. I decided to settle for a smaller phone because I don't like anything above 5 inches. I have to say this phone is worse than my Nexus 5 regarding performance. Apps load slower than my N5.
For the rest it's fine I guess but I mostly pay for speed, not features. So I'm disappointed
AnonD-122669, 02 Mar 2016Z5Compact will not be launched in India as Indians are crazy about big screens & even Z3Co... morebrother if u really love xperia compact phone them u buy its from a united kigdon online shop,i mean uk z5 compact international version and it also support all 4 g bands of indian network...iam not forcing u its only a advice becz iam also a fan of xperia compact phones and its hundered percent geniun from united kingdom and its a uk z5 compact bersion..this is link
I'm too confused after the marshmallow update. So many memory and app sections. Now some new memory section just for the ram. AND i used to be able to free almost 1 gig. Now even when I force close apps to free ram I don't get any more ram. About 550mb max. What the heck? How can I not free the ram by closing apps that take ram?

I like Sony... i never had any issues with Sony. Maybe that is because i never got cheap lo-end phone and i always go for original in authorized stores but each and everyone of my Sony phones is still working. You can bet on that.
And for the love of God stop trying to take underwater pictures with Sony phones. They are waterproof but not in that way.

Bloatware can be easily uninstalled. Beyond that the UI is clean, simple & fast unlike touchwizz.
