Ridiculous Lag after Android 8.0 update!! UGH!!

It is frustating to see how my Xperia XZ lags with every little thing I try to do with it. Trying to open Facebook (lag), playing Pokemon Go (lag), trying to put an attachment to a text (lag), looking through Intagram (lag), everything is a lag. On top of not being able to get over 2.5 hrs of screen on time, I have to go through lag galore! I don't know who to blame for this, Sony Xperia Devs or Google but it's unbelievable how no rep from Sony can respond to these type of post, NOT EVEN ONE. I feel like I'm carrying a $500 (bought last year) piece of crap. I've been using Sony Xperia phones since the X10 and this is definitely my worst experience with a Sony Xperia phone.

Probably something is working very hard in the background.

Maybe you can watch apps behaviour

 

Enable developer mode android Oreo

Settings > System > About phone > Tap build number 7 times

Now enabled developer options in android 8.0 Oreo.

Go to settings > System > Developer options > Memory > Memory used by apps 

 

and watch this site.

After checking memory, I noticed my phone is using 2.6gb out of 3gb of RAM and Android system/Android OS are the main users of RAM! Is this normal?
