Could Sony, or an important person, please contact all those hundreds, thousands, maybe millions... Of good honourable citizens... That originally bought a FANTASTIC phone... And since the nougat update has become a melting, pathetic mess... Please respond to this...
I am asking,begging, exploring, that someone speaks and informs us of how you are going to rectify this...
Because even though you, Sony,may have you're minions to answer the questions you don't want to, or don't know how to... They are just poor suckers who have been burnt like the rest of us...
Samsung held their hands up... They admitted their faults..
This will reflect on you...
I for one, will never, never, NEVER, purchase anything from Sony ever again...
All credit to Samsung, which I never had time for before

You could be more objective regarding what the issues are, however one doesn't have to look far into other forum posts to percieve them.
For a 700€ device (I guess that depends on your country), it is a 'bit' unacceptable to leave software bugs out on the open for so long, I'll be a bit repetitive here, but might be worth the trouble, so in Nougat you have the following issues (take in consideration I have a Z5 Compact):
Overall I find my Z5 Compact working reasonable well, however I don't find it good that a flagship phone of the previous generation seems to have be abandoned by the manufacturer.
If I wanted something with the hardware but disregarded software support I would go with a Xiaomi, Leeco or similar.
Well, I would love to hear at least about the security updates...
Today I got the 32.3.A.2.33 update to my Z5 Compact (previously 32.3.A.0.376):

When do the A57 cores run? They are always stopped.
Usually they don't unless the A53's are not enough.
For example you might see (depending on what are you using to measure it) a CPU at 100% load (cpu time) for a 30% frequency, the CPU frequency will be increased to cope with the load. Usually the A53s have enough power for most stuff even games. However if needed the A57s will be used.
I never seen more than 2 A57s in use in my mobile, but even then at less than 30% load, I can't imagine what would take to use all the 4... the link given by nolramlb explains this in detail. A google search in CPU governor and scheduler should be quite informative.
Mediatek (yes, I know Z5 has a Qualcomm CPU) has an app in Play Store that overlays a chart in the screen and allows you to keep track of what CPUs are used and by how much, seems to be quite accurate. Should be quite helpful to quickly confirm when and how are the cores used.
There is another point, thermal headroom, the phone will cut the use of the A57 if it gets hot, but that depends on quite a few factors. The ony time that I saw the phone go 70ºC on CPU was right after a system update... for most of the time it never reaches 60ºC, and waves around 50ºC when in use.
If one is having problems with thermals and battery, it might be due to some app or service using the CPU even when the screen is off. That will cause 'lags' or similar issues when using the phone.
Hope it helps.
