Re: Android Marshmallow 6 - FW 32.1.A.1.163 on our Xperia Z5

If you're not expecting a lot of new features, I think you will be very pleased with the new MM firmware.

I got my Z5 back in early November, and that phone was an unsuable mess for me, based on my usage (many Bluetooth issues, laggy UI, etc.)

With Marshmallow, it's a new phone and as far as I can tell, all the most annoying issues I had with Lollipop are now fixed. The Z5 finally feels like the premium/flasgship phone it should have been since day 1.

Some stuff are still missing (6.0.1, Camera2 API, manual controls, Stamina Mode, new UI elements like in the Xperia X videos, etc.) but at least the phone is now enjoyable to use, and it flies.

I'm very pleased overall. Not a revolution, but a more than due update. Lollipop was terrible.

Sony, why did you release such awful update?
-No transparentstatus bar?
-No possibility to format SD card as internal storage
-No possibily to turn off drawen from ui (use just simple all icons on screen)=no UI
-No Stamina app
-just 6.0 not 6.0.1
Why? @Rickard, @Christofer

For trasparent status, follow my 3D because now I think there's an explanation for this, that remains black with all their theme !

I haven't understood 3rd point

Stamina will be introduced into next update in April with latest bugfixes (I think they are investigating that Stamina and Doze work better together and not worser than ever)

6.0 with latest build patch, as 6.0.1 is just bugfix for Nexus but we have latest bugfix and security patch Slightly smiling Face

Just a question : How do u TAG users ?

@Robertods88

3rd point: Possibility to choose between current UI with all apps in menu, or modern UI with all apps in screen just (like iphone)...

Sadly I am with Three in the UK, so got to wait until they decide to add their stuff before they release it to the customers 😡
