Anonymous, 05 Jan 2017Phone is very nice. Can it's supported OTG plz tell me
Despite the pros informed here, I find the colors and layout of in built apps of this phone very ugly, and the apps are not smart built. By ugly colors I mean flashy pink and horrible blue. What the hell, man, what about some elegance? Plus the problem that voicemail notifications don't go away. I am a little regretfull for these things. On top of all, it wasn't cheap.
Meek wayne, 14 Jun 2016Dose the glass of it back can be replaceable because my own is brok.Hey!! Look the back of the phone is made of Meatl or glass ?
I did not know this until I bought the Z5. The camera in 23MP mode only gives you a 4:3 aspect ratio. To get a 16:9 aspect ratio picture (wide screen) you need to drop the camera MP settings to 20MP. SUCKS!!! Also, I did not get in ear headphones. I got a shitty pair of horrible sounding cheap ones. I have been robbed! The battery in my Z3 used to last much longer than the Z5. Why change something that was not broken??? I miss my Z3...
Dose the glass of it back can be replaceable because my own is brok.
I dont own the Z5 as i own the Z3 but have still manage to use the Z5 for couple of days. I am a Sony fan and both the Z3 & 5 are great phones. The highlight of both phones for me is the battery because with my z3 it last me 2days with 15% left thanks to the stamina/ultra stamina mode But now that all gone out the window due to the new marshmellow update, i have not a clue what they where thinking but its actually rubbish. My phone does not even last a full day anymore because they have decided to remove both stanmina modes in the new update. The replacement battery saver mode is pointmless becasue the screen dims to its loweset which makes can't be used outdoors. Just because of this i had a strong rating of 9/10 which has fallen to 6.5/10.... Needs fixing
My Sony Z5 phone's battery got drained after using it underwater. Tried to charge it but is no longer working. The phone won't show an indication that it is charging. The red light is also not lit up. I already tried using another charger but it did not work. What would I do before going to Sony Center? It is far from where I am right now. Thank you.
not good. see chapter 8 in this review, in "image quality" sub-chapter.
it tells this:
Sony does have some spotty reputation in this department with certain recurring issues like corner softness and a lot of noise under less than favorable lighting. Looking at the samples form the Z5 we sadly see many of these issues yet again - some shots came out quite blurry around the edges and a lot of detail seems to have this watercolor like look, which is usually a result of poor noise reduction algorithms.
Lancelot, 02 Mar 2016This is a great phone. I don't know why most of you are saying that this not a good one. I hav... moreI like the design of the z5 especially the green one. If they can change the snapdragon 810 to 820 then i will surely buy it. Perfect!
This is a great phone. I don't know why most of you are saying that this not a good one. I have tested all the functionality and new features of the phone and it works perfectly fine. as for the video recording. steady shot and Digital stabilization is exceptional and way too far from other brands, this is top 1 for me. If you're using a sony mobile for your photograpy, I bet for sure that you have a good understanding on how to shot great photos. Sony did not put too much processing on their camera software unlike other brands. so I believe if you want to take good photos with sony camera you have to know the basics and the dynamics of the photography. performance wise Z5 can battle with all of the top android phones around w/its SD810, heating issue is not a big deal here unless recording in 4k its expected anyway.
that's all, sorry for bad English, not my main language :)
I had Sony Xperia c2005 which is good mobile phone it had only one drawback that its memory was too less only 2GB but as a cheap mobile it was acceptable, its display and video quality was very good. Now I have bought Sony Xperia Z5 and thought that it will be more pleasurable but I am shocked to see its video quality which is so poor. Even unknown brands video is better or let's say similar to Sony Xperia z5, so what is the use of spending this much money for so bad phone?.I am regretting a lot and want to sell this phone as soon as possible and will never buy Sony phone again because they cheated its customers by giving so bad video and photos quality.

Peter H, 20 Nov 2015Just wondering - when you test the audio quality of various different phones, do you always us... moreDo you really have a Xperia Z2? The music player has EQ and also the Clear Bass setting, why don't you use it?? The Walkman (music in Xperias) is the best music player, you can make a lot of setting for personal preference. And the UI is progress in the beta test for better user experience. Let you know, I only use the basic earphone for listen music, but it can produce a very very very good sound! I wouldn't choose other brands, because they don't have DSEE HX feature and many other very good features.
Don't use the download music app from the google play store, it only show you a Samsung user.
Peter H, 20 Nov 2015Just wondering - when you test the audio quality of various different phones, do you always us... moreYa, i guess its about the software, sony is not good in that department.
Like camera, their 20 mp phone is easily beaten by 13mp other vendor which also use sony sensor.
Just wondering - when you test the audio quality of various different phones, do you always use the inbuilt music app (e.g. Walman/Music for Sony) or do you download a third party app and use that same app for all phones?
The reason I ask is that I had an Xperia Z2 and G3, and always found the music performance on the G3 much better.
After a while and decided to try a new app on the Sony due to the lack of EQ bands on the stock one, and so I downloaded jetAudio Plus.
What I wasn't expecting is that once I played music using jetAudio (even without any EQ or other modifiers applied) it sounded very, very different to how it did with the Walkman App. Basically the sound quality was now on par (or very nearly on par) with the G3. The first thing I noticed is far better stereo separation.
This led me to the conclusion that the Sony Walkman software has weak audio accuracy, and is probably the reason behind the device always having issues with crosstalk in the measurements. It also left me wondering how the Sony measurements would compare if every device tested was using the same playback software (hence meaning that any difference being measured is in the hardware itself).
DenisXD, 11 Nov 2015it's not with steady shot enabled. It has the best stabilisation in the world atm, it's far ah... moreHi!
I have checked some more videos, but these ones I do not understand why were shaky. Even if it was wind, the others did perform better. The movie was not shaky.
Do you own one? In which color?
