The size of icons has gotten bigger even though this is set to small in settings.
Turns out that I needed to press & hold on the home screen and select the 5x5 grid feature.
there's also dpi mode in display settings.. and then you have even more dpi control in developers options. I can't remember if I mentioned it in the other thread

Me Z5 compact, tooooo much lag n heat
There's a time I was feeling phone was sooooo heat, then checked Bluetooth was on out of sudden. Many times happened like that! Happened in this 3 4 days. Bluetooth was suddenly on n phone was heat up! Then when trying to off the Bluetooth, it was toooo much lag until I off n on the phone to make it smoother n colder. Restarting not only once, thrice times! I even turned it off for few minutes because it was too lag even home screen, menu didn't appear smooth, it takes seconds to appear all widgets n apps in menu.
Anyone has same problem with me? Anyone has any solution?
Please Sony improve

Hi, it's been over a week now since I've updated and honestly the general lag when I use any apps, the battery drain and the overheating of the device is outrageous.
Isn't updates meant to upgrade the user experience?
This one I'm sorry, does not.
Are you aware of any patches coming our way, because I'd rather have my previous software version.

Reboot your phone in safe mode. Then power off. Then power on. It made a big difference to mine

Thanks for your advice, I did it yesterday and it worked for a few ours but the lag, the overheating and the battery draining continues.
So I still think Sony should do something ahout it, it's outreagous the bricking they're causing to z5c owners.

Worst update so far. Exepriencing major lag and performance issues on a Z5 and Z5C.

Never had a phone that lagged so much to the point where the phone is unusable. Even the keyboard was taking 30 seconds to open and ram was showing almost fully used even with no apps loading.
And looking through here, I'm not the only one and looks like Sony have withdrawn it as I connected my phone to reinstall through companion and my phone is now showing the previous build and working fine again.
