    So I've noticed when I turn off stamina mode most of that small lag I had noticed earlier days is gone... I'm going to run a few days or week without stamina and see how it does on battery... I can easily get through the day with it enabled.. About 5 hrs + screen time without trying to baby it... Additionally the phone has had no heating issues.. I've read it's the 810 v2.. If I have to say only thing I truly hate it's the vibrate.. not strong and I usually rely on it while at work.. Led is kinda hard to see with lighting at work...

    The ads are enough reason to root, imo

    Just a couple of additional thoughts...

    Battery life has been okay so far.. I'm getting through the day.. One day I can do 4+ and a few times seems like 3 SOT is max... It's been all over the place with same usage patterns.. not the 2 days advertised and I think if you are coming from Z3 It's taken a hit..I've actually been most disappointed with it considering its not a big screen running 1080p.. I'm going to do a reset in a few days and update through PC which I've read helps for these Sony phones..

    Screen rotation sometimes just gets stuck one way.. It will go great for awhile then act up. ..once had to reboot to get it going right.. Hopefully will fix with reset...

    I managed to FC camera with more 4k videos in shorter time.. we know it's an issue that needs to be addressed by Sony..

    Overall it's a solid device but personally I might just recommend waiting a bit to jump on...

    I definitely miss my Nexus 6.. Lol

    OK day one again... Lol
    I used Sony PC companion.. Very easy to use and I reset phone to latest software... Let's see how the phone runs for the next few days..
    Also I had this device can be monitored in my drop down notification when I first set up turns out its find my Xperia option Sony gives us to wipe and find device and such.. you can select on phone set up or unchecked .. I've not selected this time..
