I've read numerous threads about the various wifi and bluetooth issues. I paid $500 for this phone. Sorry I am not going to download software onto my computer to reload xperia. Too much time & agita. According to the users, it doesnt fix the troubles anyway. Whats also disappointing is that despite all the complaints on this forum, SONY HASNT MADE ANY OFFICIAL ACKNOWLEGEMENT. There should be an official response from Sony posted in this forum. As to whats causing the problems, and when an update will be sent out to fix. I work for one of the largest telecoms in the U.S. and I cant believe SONY's poor customer service. Why wonder Sony has had difficulty acheiving success in the.US Market. I'm about ready to throw in the towel and.demand my money back on this phone. It is USELESS with Wi-Fi that often doesnt work and a bluetooth that is spotty in behavior. SONY? I expected so much more from you.
Shshshshshshhh speak slowly or dont speak at all. I wrote many times and all the posts were deleted from this forum. And eventually i was banned from the forum. Re registered with new ID just for the solution of my problems. Sony can't digest its criticism. You spent $500, whereas I spent $850(59900 INR) on my Z5 Premium Dual. And you can see the treatment we all are getting. What you are writing now, I have already written and deleted by them. Asked for official statement and these bugs fixed especially bluetooth stuttering which makes my phone hot as just baked cookie and uses 2.5GB RAM consisyently out of available 2.7GB. Making my phone slow and hot(after update only). I think that stuttering and heating is memory issues.

My Xperia Z5P does not have any bluetooth Apt-X lag issues (Unlocked UK phone with UK Firmware 32.1.A.1.163)
I fixed my Z5P 5 GHz wifi issue by reformatting my router to factory default then reconfiguring the router again. Linksys WRT1900AC V.1 some kind of IP Address fetch issue (IP Address conflict).

Installed new firmware 32.1.A.1.185 on my Z5C this morning. See no big differences yet.
Anyone else got this firmware?
Posted this message already this morning but somebody found it necessary to delete it.

Update still ropey eh? Sony, I have a Z5C because it's the only smaller phone you can buy (no iPhone... Just no...) that doesn't have crappy specs to go with the reduced size. But why do there seem to always be significant issues with firmware updates?
To those who have updated successfully, did you simply use the OTA update, or did you back everything up, completely reset your device then upgrade via a PC? I won't update till I'm confident I won't ruin my device (I depend on a reliable phone to do my job!) but I am curious, as some of you seem to have met with success.

I upgraded to the latest and greatest MM via Bridge for Mac and now, apart from some minor quirks (icons in battery statistics and Trackid not working with FM radio), my Z5c is the phone it deserves to be.
i am impressed. Good work, Sony.
