Upgrading to Android 7.0 Nougat last week has made my Xperia Z5 compact worse then it was before the upgrade and I seem to be far from the only one experiencing this. The volume from the loudspeekers feels like they deliver maybe 20% max of what they used to in all apps except for the built in music player where the volume seems to still reach the same levels as before. Others are also complaining about worse battery capacity, I don’t seem to experience the same level of reduction as some others, but it feels like it drains the battery faster in standby mode than before. It’s understandable that a manufacturer can’t give full support to their product indefinitely, but the Xperia Z5 compact was released just over 18 months ago and I’ve had mine for just over a year. I’ve been very happy with it until this “upgrade”. Are Sony even looking for a solution to these problems? If you can’t solve this than you could at least give us who are unhappy the option of a simple way to downgrade back to Marshmallow. I’ve always liked Sony as a brand, not just when it comes to phones. My TV, surround sound, car stereo etc. are also Sony, because I know that Sony usually stands for good quality and performance, but if you are unable to solve this in a timely fashion, I might be looking elsewhere the next time I’m looking to buy new electronics.

I didn't update my Z5 compact until yesterday. Huge update of almost 1,3 GB. I don't seem to have any sound problems when it comes to ring volume and I can hear people fine when talking even headphones seems unaffected. However the loudspeaker volume is very low compared to before the update. Not when using the built in music player, but in all other apps like Firefox, Youtube, MX Player etc. Please solve this, i used to be able to listen to podcasts and such while even being in another room if i cranked up the volume and now i can barely hear anything even if I'm right next to the phone and the volume maxed out.
