weewee, 23 Oct 2015"probably",

And that is the only reason Sonys mobile department is in red for last 5 or so years, despite them selling and earning on mobile more and more on year to year basis.
They are doing good, but had to cover that 1.5 bill in red, that Sony attributed to their mobile division.
They said this year finally they got that red covered...
So they are now even able to build a factory for mobile division.
DenisXD, 23 Oct 2015speaking of headphones music, htc m9 sounds the best through headphones. Just as good as Sony ... moreYou continuously keep mixing terms of volume level with sound quality...
Those two DO NOT relate. Ok?
Xperia z series have among highest sound quality software solutions, along with other top phone vendors...
The levels in this review are manufacturers presets and DO NOT relate to actuall sound quality possibilities. You get to tweak the sound in settings ( ie change the levels of every number on the list measured in the review) to your liking...
Sound I get from my dedicated Sony headphones on my Z1c is better quality than my friends galaxy s6 edge. He has those loud boomsound headphones with exagerated bass on his s6 and the sound is bad. Gave him my mdr-ex450ap sony headphones and he was perplexed with what difference it made. Then he tried it on my z1c and was perplexed by better quality. We tweaked settings on s6 a bit and only then it sounded equally.
Sony presets sound variables of their phones to acommodate headphones they produce. Sound is superb and loud with my mdr headphones on my 2 year old z1c. On par with s6. Z5 has better sound software than s6 (hi fi).
So stop interpreting this review wrongly, and stop stubbornly repeating same things over and over.
End of story.

What sucks though, is people claiming sonys different software approaches suck...
More sucky even, is their need to keep repeating their personal opinion over and over on sony related threads, instead of just getting some other phone they subjectivly find unsucky, as to comment on its unsuckiness on its dedicated threads...
There is actually a definition of a troll, and calling "sucks" on sth you do not actually use is there somewhere in the explanation.

So i better say to you: "Stop trolling. And accept your phone regression"

all historically great things used by sony ericsson in the past are all developed by ericsson engineers.
after they both separated, sony cant use ericsson enginers anymore to develop the product. they also lose access to many many proprietary ericson's technology.
thats why sony become worse since that separation.
DenisXD, 23 Oct 2015well imagine z5 had 9mm width, and triple heat pipes for more than an hour of 4k recording, 33... moreThe most important thing is the software. Sony actually can provide all that powerful hardware. They only had the problem with software.
-Like smart cover, it was very difficult for them. To make the cover itself is easy, they only need the design, and ask other company to produce it. But the software is their job. Needs one an half year to copy it. And its only exclusive for Z3 and above. While low end sammy also get that stuff.
-Screen. We know that they can deliver 4K. But the software? Wonder why they jumped to 4K? why it run at 1080p? You know Their plan was make Z5 series only in 2 varian, Z5 with QHD screen. But as they cant make the proper UI tweaks with their already announced qhd phone Z4V, they cancelled QHD Z5 and Z4V. QHD screen run at FHD is embarrassing. But 4K is not.
-Camera. We know that Sony have best sensor but the software always sucks.
IR blaster, Dual LED flash, Ois etc, or cybershot camera.They can easily get it. Their engineers is just not capable to create the software.
Dual heatpipes, 23 Oct 2015better than what? Better than other brands, you must try it out, the music details is the TOP,... morespeaking of headphones music, htc m9 sounds the best through headphones. Just as good as Sony ericsson W995 and at the same loudness. Sony Z series used to have average volume levels since always, they can't compete with W995 in terms of quality and loudness, not even close. W995 is 25% louder than m9 through speakers and produce a better balanced sound, and it is a Sony device!
That's what we are saying.. Sony doesn't play rough!
Dual heatpipes, 23 Oct 2015you trolling too much, but useless, I won't trust you.quit your squirting I'm NOT a troll. Accept the freakin facts!
How old are you 12?
We all keep repeating the same thing, Sony needs to step in the game aggressively and not follow the others. I'm trolling because I say that Z5 could be better?
It's only a phone, and not the best all around. The "historic" phones were Sony too you know, and back then Sony used to play strong cards on the table!
Get a grip and grow up, Sony needs to listen to their all time fans because the others play rough. If they listen to the likes of you I don't expect many new Sony devices.
Just stop, you make yourself look like you don't want Sony to be better.

And then sony saying we have the best and loudest speakers, the best camera at all conditions, a 3day battery and on top of it a really durable construction. That's like a dream phone to me.
Why they don't go best?! Why they don't try much?!
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2015Duh!? Obviously a higher quality set of headphones sounds better.
And those same higher quali... moreEmmm, nope...
Testing devices sound output on manufacturers presets does not equate to sound quality of the device. No matter which headphones you put on. This arena testing is far from perfect, and numbers given do not relate to actual capabilities of the device.
Z5 has HiFi sound quality, which for ex. Samsung only now announced for its next S7 flagship...
Volume levels also do not equate to sound quality, neither do higher or lower levels of this or that on that test chart.
It is you and me that equate the sound quality, not the numbers, some people like it loud, some like it with a pinch of backnoise some do not, some like it with higher low frequency levels, some with higher high frequency levels.
Z5 has extremely good sound system, preset to these numbers you see on the board, either through speakers or headphones, but the sound is hifi, no doubt about that.
So you adjust it to your liking
Personally, I like the sound coming out of Z5 stereo speakers more than any louder htc or nexus stereo speakers, less backnoise and cleaner, more softer sound in Z5, at least to my ears.
Devices with mono speakers are no match to sound quality there, simply because they are mono.

DenisXD, 22 Oct 2015why whenever someone says his honest opinion he is automatically a troll?TROLLS CAN BE LIE. let's say the sams and fruit fans are a lot, when they are trolling or defame Sony, it must a lot of negative comments, because the fans is very much,as you can see this link:
DenisXD, 22 Oct 2015that's what I don't get.. Sony had strong hardware back then.
Now they follow stupid trends ... moreAt that rate they could have all been batter.
The Z5 is not that behind. Just s could areas and its mostly software with the camera.
In that sense the M9 and G4 could have been way better. Even the Note 5 and S6 could have been better.
