Got the update around 4 days ago, good clean install & have not experienced any of the issues mentioned here.....i would recommend to anyone having severe problems after any software update to repair using Xperia Companion, i have only ever once had problems after a software update & tho reluctant at the time i repaired with XP & it solved the issues

Agree but from what I've been reading and from other people's experience is that something is happening several days after update where phone has been working fine. with no new apps installed, no changes, then complete slow down to the point where phone crashes constantly and unusable. Would be nice to hear from Sony!

Spoke too soon. After installing a few apps like fb and messenger and starting one game, phone now red hot, slow and showing 1.5 gb ram used! Any ideas as I've done clean install from Xperia companion which as installed 7.0and no new update showing. Sony?

What worked for me
Settings./more./mobile networks./preferred network types./wCDMA only.
Set to wcdma only since doing this it is the best my phone has ever been .when I pull it out of my pocket it is cold and battery use is low. I do not have to use stamina mode anymore.
The veriations between phones could be because of the difference in providers (different SIM cards)?if the settings com from the SIM card . Just a guess.
The slowness in the phone comes from the heat.
Find out what is making your phone hot.
My phone was at its worst just after charging or extended use
Hope this helps
There are a lot of frustrated people out there

That's what I always recommend. I mentioned it at XDA in a thread as a general comment, and this dude is ripping in to me, because he probably read it as - your problems are because you did the OTA... but he did flash 5 times already... I should add my signature there too, Jesus didn't save me
