Re: WIFI issues on z5 premium.

Hey guys.

 

I really have no answer. My Z5 premium still refuses wifi now and then, even though i turned off Stamina.

The battery life is significantly worse :-(

It also has problems connecting to my car with bluetooth!? (where my kids Iphones have no problems at all!)

I really hope the Sony team are working with these issues and it will get better when (IF) we ever get Marshmallow.(Android 6.0) 

Even that takes sooo long. How hard can it be SONY?

If these issues are not solved then, I will for sure change phone. Sadly, because i really like the Z5Prem. But if it doesnt work properly.... What to do?

Re: WIFI issues on z5 premium.

The only thing that works for me is to set WiFi security to WEP. The upgrade to 6.0 didn't fix the WiFi issue.

Wi-Fi problem with z5 premium!

So my z5 premium is able to connect to the Wi-Fi ( sometimes can't)  but it doesn't have internet access. Can't do anything online. FYI, the Wi-Fi itself is completely fine, my laptop, tablet have no issues at all. I try everything really, rebooting the phone, rebooting the router... I thought it might be the software problem, but after updating to 6.0 today, the issue still exists. Does anyone have the same experience? Or can anyone help me out, it's a great phone but this issue has gotten me so frustrated.

Re: Wi-Fi problem with z5 premium!

I have a z5 and ever since the latest update to 6.0 I have wifi problems.  It constantly drops wifi whilst in sleep and won't come back until I turn on the screen.  This never occurred prior to the update. I have checked settings and is not that.  This is definitely related to latest update.

Re: WIFI issues on z5 premium.

I'm still having same problem with marshmallow update. I've tried everything. Factory resets. Apps that claim to fix it (but inevitable don't). It's experiences like this that make you think should have just got ios

Re: WIFI issues on z5 premium.

Same problem here. Wifi connection drops when the screen turns off, even when the phone is plugged and is not in deep sleep.

Annoying to say the least and it consumes more mobile data than usual
