It was and has been for months, now all of a sudden the camera reacts slow, it's getting much hotter and the battery bug is back.
I've no doubt I could reset it and do what I did before to get it back to how it was, but im not going to keep doing it, so wondered if downgrading would be more permanent!

I seem to have a whole new problem, the Bluetooth has used more than 3 times the battery size! ! ! 😁
I'm guessing you can't rely on the battery stats, they clearly lie!!

I read that you want to downgrade to lollipop.
As far as I've read all over the forum and spec, XZ start with Marshmallow out of the box.
Do you happen to have another Xperia?
How long have you used your phone?

I took the plunge, settled on Lineage ROM. I used to be a fan of Cyanogen on other devices, lineage doesn't disappoint.
U get the normal issues with root, android pay won't work etc. And I can't find a port for the Sony camera. But the positives out weigh the negative.

after the recent software update battery of my Xperia XZ started draining twice as fast
I had been monitoring the battery usage before & after:
the major cuplrits are that are consuming a lot more battery are :
1) phone idle time
2) screen time
3) Android systems
4) android tools
This android tool , I never insalled and seems to have appeared new and after this pdate without my approvals is backing call logs and contacts and Message data somwehere on some server / cloud
Not only is this an unauthorized copyig of my data
Its draining a lot more battery
and it's not easy or intuitive to stop this
you have to turn on the system apps...and there you will find a bunch of andriod system apps running in the background
Mere killing Force stop ain't enouhg, they strat rurnning on their own again
you've gotta uninstall them
but the risk is you mightend up uninstalling some sytem files and that would make some critical apps unstable
so by trial error i uninstalled a number of android tools and that brouhg the battery draininagge closer to older levels
Although screen idle time is still high......and I suspect when in idle mode some sytem apps are running in the bacground
the developer would know and should come up with a patch that fixes these unwanted / undesired android apps doing secret backup in the bacground asapa

Same problem with Phone Idle and Android System here, mostly. Months and months of many people with these problems and no solution. This is sad. I'm trying disable some functions and following some recommendations, but nothing until now that I can say here to help.

I was having the same problem and i cleaned the system cache and all my Google apps caches and disabled wifi scanning and Google location tracking activities and it made a big difference, Hope it helps

I did some things too, like hard reset, system repair by Xperia Companion and disable google location tracking too. I'm gonna try clean system cache and google apps, it can be worth.
And following these steps, I want download some app to track the signal of network, but it was very normal and stable in the old phone.
Screenshot taken right now. Eighteen hours after a full charge, eighteen hours of phone idle issue.
