I'm a proud owner of this premium chrome beast.
I have to move from iPhone 5 simply cause of battery issues and really made a wise decusion yo choose this one.
I had lg g4 in my mind but sticked to this premium mainly cause of sony's name on battery and camera power.
Am from india abd here iphone 6s 16 gb costs more than this beast. I hesitated initially cause of this snapdragon 810 processor but the phone is warm as against heat issues as claimed fir sony's previous model.
I was an ios user for last 5 years but no regrets moving to android and happy now not to worry on soace or battery issues though processor wise iphones are still miles ahead if snapdragon.
Trust me and go for this premium z5 model.
itsme, 27 Nov 2015lol lol lol
sony always have great innovations.
z3+ --> digital egg fryer.
z5 --> dig... moreWell Sony didn't have any option because
1.they couldn't use snap 808 with 4k screen
2. Couldn't use helio x10 of mediatech as already used in upper midrange (Sony m5)
3.for sure they can't approach Samsung for exynos or huawei for processer
4.Intel has good proceesers but none touching flagship type performance (also are battery sucker)
No other processor manufacturing company have enough popularity to be used in flagship devices
PARAG B, 27 Nov 2015Check almost all the videos on youtube with Z5P vs Note5 camera test.

Z5 can definitely beat it...trust me.
PARAG B, 27 Nov 2015And all the actual videos on you tube are all fake ! What a wrong Idea i got! LOL.Well I guess you watched those that suited your opinion...
Manila Shaker does very objective comparissons, he is just a guy who knows Xperia devices, he uses the cameras in exactly same conditioning, only soft shutter button, all phones on a same holder. He even knows that to get best results from z5 camera in low light you have to use 8mpx in auto or manual, and it seems that in that way it also beats note5 in lowlight detail...
There is a link on his channel to all shots he made, so maybe you could go and check them thoroughly if you do not believe your eyes.
Report back then, of what you suspect is wrong in his testing.
I did watch a lot of them comparissons, and it is funny how some testers do not know, or do not want to know how to get best results from z5 camera...
Some use that hard shutter button which causes loosing focus due to hand trebble, some use it without double step featureto autofocus, and of course all that in lowlight shots, some record videos without intelligent active mode on,...
Them all provide false results...
I can not find anything questionable in Manila Shakers mehods...
He proved z5 has best mobile camera overall...
Which dxomark claims, which blind test here also claimed...
Sorry if you cannot accept the fact. But it is fact.
dasman, 27 Nov 2015Which videos did you watch from what person? TyCheck almost all the videos on youtube with Z5P vs Note5 camera test.
and u wud find that mostly every videos shows the lowlight pics videos on NOTE5 is much better than the Z5P .
If u search more u wud find that NOTE5 even surpasses the MS 950 XL in keeping things in focus while shooting videos b it daylight or night time shooting.
Is it really hard to search anything on youtube now a days? LOL
A fail camera is a deal breaker for me even though the phone looks cool and premium.

PARAG B, 27 Nov 2015If we go according to ur logic then even Z5P should wear a cover case as it is much bigger and... morewill you use protector case or you MUST use protector case?
z5p is very beautiful not need to cover and cover.

dasman, 27 Nov 2015Wow. Seems like GSMArena didn't accept my other comment so I'll say this again: The Camera on ... moreYou see, my boy PARAG B has the wrong idea! Does the S6 have ISO that can go up to 12800? Does it have Superior Auto Mode? It doesn't need OIS if it has the HIGHEST RATING IN DXOMARK?
I still have my Xperia Z1, after 2+ years and still working very good, lots of updates, will not make it to Android 6 but has the last of lollipops. This year in July I got the wonderful idea of getting a Sgs6, it was working OK, nice camera, nice ir blaster, finger print sensor was real good.
Problem: waterproof, the Sgs6 died on a dive to a small bucket of water.
So I got back to Sony and still working like a champ. Even when I had to dive it from the sea (it wasn't very deep)
Next phone? A waterproof one, no matter what, the Sony android is sleek and very customizable. Camera? Just bragging rights for me.
Just my experience.
This Z5p looks fabulous, and has a lower price tag than the Sgs6 when I got it (almost 1000 usd in Mex).
I like the idea of the screen size, I also have a lumia 640xl and I was getting used to that.
PARAG B, 27 Nov 2015But u do agree that Z5P is huge and not as pocketable as NOTE5z5p is 1mm taller than note 5, but note 5 wider 1mm than z5p. Both are not pocketable, because its a PHABLET. The issue here is u mention that note 5 are pocketable, which is WRONG. Come on pick another troll other than this.
Guys just check out the honest reviews from manila shakers on YouTube. Maybe ull find the right answers. Peace man
Gae, 27 Nov 2015errr, note 5 -> 5,7" Z5P -> 5,5" do ever math ?I already wrote the same in my previous comment. So what is it that u r telling me? LOL

why are you being Hypocrite here? LOL.
Jayavardhanz, 27 Nov 2015I do not find it huge. May be Note 5 is of the same size with a bigger screen to body ratio. b... moreI do not really want to write the screen to body ratio of NOTE5 and Z5P here .It will surely make you sad! LOL
