Bugs on Android 7.0 z5 models

Sony, You are the Best! Everything is good, but on Android 6.0 my z5 Premium was really Premium, perfect device without any bugs. But now... on Android 7.0 (14.04.2017) 32.3.A.0.376 there are only 3 bugs:

-Wery slow rendering photos in Album, blur and X-reality starts only after 15 seconds after picture opened!

-Call history list stuks, scroll frizzy, slowly...

-When using Bluetooth audio connection to my car audio system, Music app. of my phone doesn't send Id3 tags to my car media system on Android 7.0.

Exactly same problem in my phone also, and also the caller app freezes frequently and can't make any calls,, device restarts repeatedly if I change the data Sim or change the network from 2g to 4g

Same here on X Compact. I switched to other album app, but once Sony's is fine I am going to get back to it, it is an awesome photos and videos viewer.

Slow display detail in zoom mode

I update my phone to nougat. Now when I zoom image (23mpx) it take 10 second to see detail. I like downgrade to Android 6.

Loading full quality photos Camera & Album is slow

I often want to go back to my pictures, either in Camera or in Album to see details (zoom in) on them or see if they are taken well to know if I have to take them again.

There is an issue with this. The photos load fine at first, but they are of low quality & loading them in full quality, so they won't be pixelated takes ages and sometimes does not work at all... meaning I can't zoom in to see/show details, etc.

X Compact, saving photos on phone, not memory card, due to memory card bug.

Can you please sort this mess out? It's really annoying.

Re: Loading full quality photos Camera & Album is slow

@allure while I can't confirm the 200+ GB card bug I can kudo and +1 your frustration about the official Album app. It is really annoying. What is happening is that the official Album app is loading first the thumbnail and then slowly loading in the background the full image. This is done to speed-up the opening but in reality is a big fail because in reality the background process that has to load the picture take too much time to open it, render it and transfer to the front-end object. I've already sent feedback in the past, I am sure that Sony's devs are working on fixing this issue. In the meantime my recommendation is to use the Google Photos app. It load all the photos quickly and at 100% of resolution. You could also se Google Photos as default photo viewer while Sony fix the Album app.
