I had 2 different Z5 Compact devices within 1 week. Both with a total different experience.
1 Z5 Compact White had exactly the same issue as most people experience on this part of the forum. Straight out-of-the-box did 4x OTA update & final upgrade. Battery problem started straight after that (only installed whatsapp, no extra apps installed!)
Because I couldn't solve it with factory resets/fix with Sony Companion I sent it DOA back to the shop.
Exchanged it for a Z5 Compact Coral, upgraded straight-away with Sony Companion to 32.2.A.0.224, no issues for 2 days (and installed lots and lots of apps after that, because this device doesn't seem to have the same issue as my first device).
Keep in mind: both devices where used IDENTICALLY in the first 2 days of usage (hence, not used at all, only a bit of gmail and whatsapp activity), of course charging times were VERY different.
1st situation; charging times were sometimes extremely long when I started charging at 10% (>4 hours)
2nd situation; charging times normal. (~2,5 hours)
Small extra note; on a dutch forum (I live in the Netherlands) I was adviced to double check my internet settings from my phone provider. 1st phone received them by SIM (or were set standard by activation), 2nd phone I entered the settings manually (phone provider advices different settings in comparison to the 1st phone/settings)

@mschedrin If it is possible for you to provide me with a bug report it would be appreciated. You don't have to restart the phone if you believe it will make it harder to capture the drain.

I'm hoping those two screenshots help.
Lollipop was fine - I was able to have my Xperia Z5P *not* plugged in over night
These days, on Marshmallow, I must have it plugged in overnight otherwise it's either dead in the morning or uncomfortably low on battery.

@mschedrin Thank you!
I have forwarded this and I'll let you all know when I have any new information.

After software re-install on 32.2.A.0.224 battery performance has increased slightly but is still not compareable to what it was with previous software version.
Edit: 32.2.A.0.253 has now been downloaded and installed. Any ideas what "fixes" can we expect for?
