I found a way to fix it while Sony is just watching! Install MX player and it's codec Arm7 neon. Then open the app, Default setting is HW decoder , you should select SW decoder. And after that everything is fine

GOOD LUCK

Mobile devices are much slower than a normal PC. So playing a high-definition video using CPU would be a struggle. The SW decoder only uses CPU and software to play them. ... Manufacturers install multimedia chipsets to assist video decoding process specifically, so the H/W decoder is using these chipsets to play videos.

This means that our multimedia chipset is messed up.

In-earphone not working anymore after the upate. Moreover, when I conducted the diagnostic test for the Loudspeaker and Ear Speaker it also failed.

I THINK my camera app is broken. Wouldn't take pictures no more. You hit the shutter, it freezes as if it was in permanent capture mode

where is the picture being saved?

if it is set for sd card, change the setting to the phone memory.  see if it will take and save the photo.

when that happened with my z1 it was because the SD card had died. (the SD card had a data protection mode, that meant data could be read but never written when it detected it was failing)

Really wish I hadn't bothered with this update. It's even worse than the last one. At least that didn't give me "System UI" not working errors, and crash on the camera app of all things. E6653 Z5 now completely useless. Thanks Sony. Appreciate it.

For all those with the battery drain issue.

Have you disabled the battery optimization option ?

(uner parameter>about>state>optimization of charge)

 

For me it solved the problem on the french 32.3.A.0.376 rom !!
