That seems to be more of an android bug than a Sony bug.

Indeed it's a Sony update, but Google is in charge of Android, just google Android 5.1 or lollipop 1970 bug and you will find quite a bit of info.

I have two Z1 compact and both got similar performance issues after the software update. After update both phones became slow and battery dies quickly.
How I can revert the update?

Yes, @RaulP my battery is dying in 2-3 hours too. It was the search for the cause that found the date bug.

Re: Xperia 5.1.1 Update has 1970 Date Bug

Did the repair function on PC bridge for Mac to resolve 1970 bug, and instead of Google and Sony apps saying 1/1/1970, they now say 20/2/1971?!? Really fed up having wasted a day to get to this point. Any ideas?
