Agree with other Sony Xperia Z3 users - PLEASE,PLEASE,PLEASE do not kill Marshmallow main difference from KitKat and Lollipop, i.e. ability to use SD card as additional storage for applications. My reason to buy Sony was an ability to use SD card for apps. I did not had any problems with latest Lollipop version on my phone and my most likely slow SD card was working perfectly for all apps installed there. Since upgrade to Marshmallow I have experienced next issues: 1. Some originaly mounted on SD card applications were not accessible. The issue partially "cures" after multiple system reboots, but strange thing happens: not all SD apps are unavailable, just some, and these "some" apps are different from every reboot. For example, CandyCrash would be unavailable once, then it is a turn of CandyCrash Jelly after another reboot. 2. This Saturday evening Play store quit on me showing "Error on Server" message. Couple of reboots did not fix the problem, but Google search suggested to delete cache and data, I did that and Play Store started to work after couple of reboots. However, it lost my setting to opt out from automatic updates for my apps, and, as a result, all my 200 apps received updates before I've noted this. In no time my phone became unstable since updates used only internal memory for all apps, even the ones I've uninstalled before, and it quickly fulfilled 10Gb, leaving no empty space for operational system functionality. Phone reboooted itself several times, nothing was assessible until I've managed to switch it to airplane mode and uninstall some high weight applications. After a few reboots, I was able to manually move just a handful number of applications to SD card (through Settings--> Storage-->Internal Storage -->Apps-->App of your choice, then "move ro SD"), while majority (I suspect the ones which were updated without my consent) are not movable anymore. 3. Now every time I reboot the phone my moved to SD apps are not accessible for a good 3-4 minutes, so it looks like system is having a lag connecting to SD card and indexing everything there. 4. New issue since yesterday - after every reboot of the phone I've got pop up message: "Unfortunately, Media Player for Xperia has stopped". Have no idea where this player is sitting and why it stopped working... 5. New issue: Xperia Companion software is not seeing the device - it connects to the device in MTP mode for a few seconds, then dropps connection... 6. Complete messup with Internal Storage, SD card if Xperia Z3 content in MTP mode if viewed throug Windows explorer - internal storage shows only books, which I have actually on the SD card, while File Commander and ES File Explorer on the phone shows books on my SD card. why it is so is beyond my understanding... So, Sony people, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, do not assume all the users are idiots and will bombard you with issues of their slow SD card and PLEASE reverse that stupid decision to remove the main feature of Marshmallow system to use SD storage for applications. Better decision would be to divide applications to "important" and "entertaiment" type and allow move of usually heavy games and apps which do not require high communication speed (music players, text book and audiobook readers, customization apps etc) to SD card. Or, alternatively, provide people with Lollipop 1.1 downgrade option - it worked for me flowlessly, I was stupid to rely on my previous experience with Sony upgrades and hoped for improvements when I've jumped on Marshmallow upgrade last week. I am as UnceSammo do not want to buy another phone simply because I do not have enough internal storage and I can, as I am sure most of the users, tolerate slow speeds of SD card in lieu of ability to dump there entertainment applications. Thank you in advance and hope to see soon an update fixing all the issues reported to SONY by diappointed users who upgraded to Marshmallow.

Mine is 14w46, started to have this problem just today - my mdr-nc31e headphones are recognized by phone only as a microphone, cannot listen to audio anymore. Tried couple of different brands of headphones, including one with microphone - phone recognises those correctly. Tried to tweak Smart Connect, clean cashe etc, nothing works. Seems to be hardware problem with both phone audio jack and headphonrs, since other earbuds working. Since there are so many cases, shouldn't Sony recognise the issue and create a recall campain, or, if it is a compatibility issue, provide a fix?
