I own a z5 since it came out, I am very disappointed in this phone, moustly lately it has some very big issues, restarts for no reason, very fast battery discharge for no reason heating up for no reason, restarts or shuts down apps moustly the Google play app and others, freezes and I have to reset it from the tiny button on the side, I just want to say I owned almoust every flagship since the Xperia z and that one performed better than this one, I wanted to buy the new xz premium but I have serious doubts. P.S. the proximity sensor has a mind of its own since the day I took it out from the box imagine the screen going black when you hit the dialer and telling the other person to hang up so you can have acces to your phone, and it does it randomly again very disappointed, I am Sony fan, but...

And my answer still applies. I agree that the Z5 generation is one to keep away from, anyway, mostly due to the Snapdragon 810 issues.

Noob - Someone that is new and consequently sub-par at an activity. It's just like a dog barking on a wrong tree. Just like you. I don't understand why you're here at the first place! You talk without knowing anything about me and yet you don't have anything else to say because you have no better arguments. Don't you think so? My pampered boy.
Pros - A specific style/efficiency of behaviour in the workplace or roles. Able to differentiate between good and bad. Just like a smart consumer who knows between a crab and good update of their respective phones!

Yeah, just go take your argument somewhere else if you think this is a waste of time.
TheHater, 03 Aug 2017You're up for a challenge? Btw Sony's Manual Camera app can now be downloaded on the Z5 series.Download? You must be kidding me boy! Why should I bother of downloading something or better yet taking up your precious advice that Sony could easily provided in the first place? Conclusion is they did not provide anything new for their updates FULL STOP! Regarding your 'challenge' laugh me die... Stop writing like you're something or some pros here please... It makes me cringe that you have nothing else to poke on, come back with something better and stop wasting my time thank you!

TheHater, 02 Aug 2017Yeah doomed with how a 2015 phone humiliates a 2016 phone lol.Woooo! If you can't read a simple English I suggest you better stop commenting here. What SOFTWARE for camera and battery to do with years of manufacturing? I don't see any 'bona fide' rationale that Z5 can't support the manual shutter control, manual focus control and battery care well! Stop being a pathetic once again!

First and foremost, you need not to be so eager to lash out and defend something guiltless that isn't even being attacked. I was mentioning the sluggish call history and slow image sharpening when browsing photos! Do you get me? And the solution would be what?
Anonymous, 03 Aug 2017And when they update to 7.1/.1.1 Sony already on 8.0 lol.I bet L1 will have 8.0 before S8
dragonov, 02 Aug 2017I adore this phone. Unfortunately it is very hard to find one these days. Where have you been looking for a Z5, yard sales, flea markets, and homeless shelters? MANY online retailers sell this model. I won't be using one, but feel free to do so-- if you manage to find one (which you can if try).
This is why i like Sony. They act fast in resolving customers issue. And updates are also fast. Unlike my old Samsung phone that took years before they release an updated OS. And i love their camera ü

Instead of releasing a newer firmware to fix this, they opt for a newer version of movie ... moreI just tried call history on my x compact, weirdly it does lag when scrolling fast. I've not experienced that in any other menu, even longer ones. So fairly minor, and a very confined issue.
I'd imagine the more powerful sd820 or 835 devices load up full resolution camera images faster than my device also, they have 3-4x the gpu power.
My 2015 ex flagship has 7.1.1 and works great.
No lags. I do not need to reset after 3 months like a few new flagships around.
Some phones are 7.0 still...
