Just circulate on how SONY treating those flagship users on every blog, website or even youtube. This company is useless; enough said. We paid for nothing.

I'm also disappointed that Xperia Z5 didn't get Vulkan Api support with new 7.0 update, but I don't blame Sony for that.
Z1/Z2/Z3 couldn't get Nougat not because they don't support Vulkan Api but because they don't support neither Vulkan Api neither OpenGL ES 3.1. To receive Android 7.0 Nougat, smartphone need to have support for Vulkan Api OR OpenGL ES 3.1. Xperia Z1/Z2/Z3 don't have hardware that can support OpenGL ES 3.1, so Sony & Qualcomm can't do anything.
Right now, Xperia Z5 GPU - Adreno 430 (Snapdragon 810) - doesn't have drivers that support Vulkan Api. On february 2016 Qualcomm announced that Adreno 530 (Snapdragon 820) have support for Vulkan Api, and they have plans to add support for that to Adreno 430 because hardware is compatible. But for know, there are no Vulkan Api drivers for Adreno 430, and that's why Z5 family hasn't got Vulkan Api yet.
But - unlike Z3 - Xperia Z5 already has drivers that support OpenGL ES 3.1, so it meet requirements to receive Nougat. That's what happened. Z5 received Nougat.

They ported exclusive 6P drivers, not official, because Qualcomm hasn't yet released official drivers. Ask Qualcomm why 6P got drivers and everyone else don't.

I know you're just doing your job but as a company shame on you!
This is some shady business practice and I don't appreciate it.
Sony mobile is a sinking ship and don't deny it. You guys need to realize this, forcing users to adopt your newer X series by barring features from the Z5 won't boost adoption rate, instead it'll do the opposite of what was intended and will only throw off your current loyal customers which oh yes it will and also the potential buyers with all the negative feedback this is going to receive, customers reads review before purchasing things.
Thank you for all the years your products have assisted me in but no more will I ever purchase anything under this branding unless you throw away that arrogance and provide actual good service.

For Google Nexus devices firewood exclusive, remember the Tegra 3 processor.
The A57 cores are not disabled, to check use Multi-Core Observer.
On the website Qualcomm is said to officially release a driver for Adreno 4xx.
Ported driver Vulkan and I think that he is exclusive only for Nexus 6P.
