I have to partially retreat my previous post. After the MM upgrade problems are, in order of importance;
Anyway it seems to be better than Lollipop, so: you have done a good work Sony's staff, kudos. You have just to refine those glitches and Z5 will be up to par with Z3 series again.

Even after updating a new small update of around 80+ MBs, all the problems still stay like Bluetooth stuttering, this result in phone heating up to an extreme level, no dual ringtone, phone lags a lot, I hard reset the phone but nothing yet so far. This memory issue is killing my phone by heating it stuttering and good god knows what more. Even small web page loading stops Bluetooth streaming.

I still haven't received the Marshmallow update on my Z5 Compact.
Dutch generic firmware with T-Mobile NL simcard.
Anyone has an idea why?

Last update for Belgium and The Netherlands was 3 weeks ago and was an update for Lollipop. Still no sign of the Marshmallow update though.

After hearing the issues people are having, are you sure you want the update? Sounds like waiting a while for the bugs to be ironed out is a safer policy. Lollipop works fine on my Z5C, just because there's newer firmware it doesn't mean it's necessarily better...
For me the software update reminder is popping up for over 2 weeks now but as long as people are reporting serious bugs, way less battery time and similar issues, I won't update.
When there is an announcement by Sony saying something like "Due to popular demand we bring the Stamina Mode back...", that's gonna a moment when I consider running the update. Until then I am very happy with my 5.1.1. Z5C that actually works just perfectly.

Did this happen with a previous Marshmallow version, or only with the recent *.185 update?
I'm currently on 32.1.A.1.163 and battery life has improved noticeably compared to Lollipop. I can go 2-3 days of regular use on one charge. Would hate for .185 to break that.
Apart from the Wi-Fi stability issues, I'm pretty happy right now.
