First impression :
- UI is still the same, nothing changed
- Contacts pictures now displaying correctly with different dpi
-Very fast animation and app switching, feels much smoother than Lollipop at 320 dpi
- Cannot see discharge rate with AIDA64 anymore
- Brightness issue fixed
- Dialer has a new layout and pictures are centered
- Camera interface looks almost the same ... ?
- Fingerprint now much better and unlocking almost everytime
- No heat whatsoever and battery still doing well, actually looks a bit better but need to confirm
- Again much faster and smoother !!!!! and I have 81 apps installed
-Do not disturb option
- SD card not combined with internal memory whatsoever
- Version 6.0

So far so good for me:
-The phone feels WAY faster and snappier
-UI lag and slowdowns = 99% gone. (Thanks God!!!)
-Auto-brightness bug is FINALLY fixed. That thing was so irritating
-Bluetooth issues (connection dropping every ~10 minutes or so in my car) are gone
-I miss the good old Lollipop Volume Panel with the "Do not disturb" settings. I wish we got the 6.0.1 panel
-Fingerprint scanner works WAY WAY WAY better now, thanks to Google's official API (I guess?)
-Thanks, you included the latest February security fixes!
-Visually, everything is virtually identical
-Same old camera app with no Camera2 API and advanced manual settings. That's a dissapointement
-Animations in general are faster, am I right?
I expected more new stuff in the UI depatment but well, at least we have a firmware that is worthy of the Z5, and the most annoying bugs are fixed!
Stamina Mode is missing for now, but well... I guess it's not that bad IF Doze gets the job done.
What I'd like to see in the coming months:
-6.0.1 with the new Volume panel
-The new UI/icons we saw in the Xperia X videos
-My hopes are low on that one but... the new Xperia X camera app with adaptative focus, more Manual controls / Camera2 API
That update won't revolutionize anything, but at least my Z5 now works as it should have since day 1! The UI lag was unberable on a device that powerful, coming from a slower OnePlus One that had NO UI lag at all.
Good job Sony, but keep the updates coming. 6.0.1 would be a pretty good first step

SIM free Z5 compact in UK, nothing yet OTA or via PC Companion. Is there any way we can force up update? I can't wait for the lag to go, and the discolouration to go too!

I couldn't agree more. So far my Z5P has been nothing but a chore to use. Laggy interface, non-working fingerprint scanner (no matter what I do) and extreme heat.
I'm in Sweden so hopefully we should both receive the update at the same time-ish.
