those who are struggling, are most of you dual sim?
Single sim here.
After the last update Thursday, still 7.1.1, it seems OK again. There was no info with the update. I'm happy now, but will bring on my old Z3 or Z5 as an assurance. ☺️

I'm having the same issues as described by everyone. It is really horrible. I'm on single SIM by the way.
Temporary solution to lighten things a bit:
If you're using Facebook and/or messenger, replace them with Facebook lite and Messenger lite. This doesn't solve the problem in full - the device is still laggy - but at least it's okay to use. It made basic functions a lot better and it also significantly impoved the battery life.
This is no solution, just a temporary work-around. It is totally inacceptable to use Facebook lite on a flagship smartphone.

there's an app on xda and the store called "hibernator" which might just be a cut above - you may want to have a look ☺️

Please can you tell us how to disable those things? Both mine and wife's XZ have turned to slow bricks after the update a few days ago. Desperate to fix it. Feels like Sony never test their releases.

Not sure if that was to me?
a. go to the play store
b. search for hibernator
c. install & open the app
d. press what looks like a play button on the middle right
e. grant permissions when asked
f. exit the app and place the widget on your home screen
g. press the right section of the widget
h. access the pull down menu on your phone
i. choose the start option

I have about 40% free ram generally now, and over six hours screen on time with no real lag to complain of. Can't understand why the user experience is so different. Hope sony comes back to you, and apologies if these are just cheap workarounds (if it matters, I have an F8331 handest running customised german stock firmware, the June 2017 security patch, and most bloatware disabled)

i install hibernator but it doesn't fix the problem! here screenshots from my ramusage, i think sony must react very fast to fix the problem coming with the last Update!
