Official Sony video showcases new Android Marshmallow features for Xperia phones

The video - embedded below - shows us an Xperia Z5 which, following the update to Marshmallow, gained the ability to grant permissions to individual apps, plus enhanced sharing capabilities, and seamless text editing. Also showcased are an improved camera UI, and the new sticker packs that are included in the Xperia Messaging app. Other novelties are only briefly mentioned - Doze mode (for improved battery life), Now on Tap, new home screen, the ability to swipe to search apps, new voice assist, and so on.
Besides the Xperia devices that are now being updated to Android Marshmallow, the following models should also get the new version of the OS at some point: Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, Xperia Z2, Xperia M5, Xperia C5 Ultra, Xperia M4 Aqua, Xperia C4, Xperia Z4 Tablet Compact, and Xperia Z2 Tablet.
Have you gotten a taste of Marshmallow on your Xperia yet?

No adaptable storage is a big omission! Disappointing update considering the time it took imo. :(

Hope there is. My Xperia M4 badly needs it.

Man I want an Xperia! Sony's skin is much clear and more visually appealing than the other Oems.

Could someone please tell me the Pros and Cons of the Marshmallow update? I still didn't receive it here in the UK on my Z5 (maybe tomorrow?), and would only install it if i'd know that it's worth it. I read the comments above, but a more detailed one would be much appreciated. Thank you Sony Bros :)
