So disappointed with my Z5 Compact since the 7.0 problems

Everything is much slower, phone lagging! 

Apps taking forever and sometimes the keyboard doesn't appear or it bugs the majority of the time.

 

Beware dear Xperian community,  don't install the version 7.1.1 as I've read that it could be even worse.

Do you research before and God bless you.

Z5 Dual useless after 7.1.1 Update.

Dont istall 7.1.1 please. My Z5 Dual is virtually useless after 7.1.1 update. Phone is running out of Ram ( available 30 MB) due to which minimized apps are redrawing when opened.

 

-Black Home Screen.

-Lags very much.

-Android System alone is taking 2.2 GB ram.

-Unable to minimize apps. Due to insufficient RAm, minimized apps redraw once opened.

Re: Z5 Dual useless after 7.1.1 Update.

24 hours after disabling the movie creator as described several pages previously, my phone has been behaving as it should do. No lagging, no overheating, no excess ram usage, no rapidly depleting battery. My battery level is still at 85%, and that is without having investigated all those interesting tips on the previous page about how to extend battery life ;-).

I wish people would read the posts on the forum before sending out cries for help. Because some answers have already been provided. It would be more useful if people would report the success or failure of the suggested remedies. Disabling movie creator works for me and my z5c. So far :-)
