As for those with Xperia Z5, people may have to wait for Sony to come up with a permanent fix. Some users previously reported experiencing performance issues with their Xperia Z5 units after upgrading to Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. The device is literally broken with a sign appearing on the display telling the user that Google Play Store is not working. Users also cannot open the app. Uber Gizmo reported that Sony recommends a factory reset to users to solve the problem. However, some users say that this does not work as well. The report recommends syncing the device to the desktop PC before trying to boot up PC Companion.
