Android N on Z5P Issue found so far..

Hello thought I post to see if others are experiencing the same.

Upgraded to Android N.
Build E6853 (Z5p)
highlighting issues foundSlightly frowning Faceso far)
1. not compatible with Google Now Launcher. (the phone icon doesn't appear, so unable to make phone calls)
Disabling/uninstalling G.NOW and the phone icon reappears.
2. Media volume has decreased to an unacceptable level. This is with noise cancelling headset provided. (tried with both Pandora and Spotify). On a scale of 1-10, in comparison to before the upgrade the max volume for Android N, is like a 3.

I can't imagine it's only specific to my phone.
Please comment if you are seeing these issues or others.

Check the music equalizer settings and Google Now Launcher it's not a Sony app, you might have to contact the Developer

After Nougat update call dialer app stutters

Hi... I've been using Z5 since a 9 mounts now and ni problem faced yet. But recently just before 2 days ago I've updated Z5 to Android Nougat and for the first time
1. Z5 got freezed.
2. Call and dialer app stutters.
3. Some settings in setting menu are taking more time to open than the usual.

But on the contrary to other users I am getting a decent battery backup or I'd say somewhat improved backup then the marshmallow.

It'll be wise to reinstall the latest update, since it was a major update

Re: Android N on Z5P Issue found so far..

I have the battery problem, it's drain very quickly after I updated to Nougat, only 5 hours if I use it not so much. The sound it's now very low too. Please gave us an update or a roll back until you have a solution...
