The Reasons for buying this phone is the battery life !
The fact that you can really use it underwater and take pictures
The Music sounds incredible (even Iphone 6s cannot match the quality believe me ! )
It supports 4G LTE and will get the Android 6.0 Update which is nice
also it has 2GB of ram but you already know that anyway
the minus is really the fact that sometimes gets hot and 8GB of storage are nothing (but SD card slots will do the trick. Basically it just gets your daily jobs done The camera could have been better... :/
But i would definitely buy this phone over huaweii htc etc. Samsung is a rival to this phone if you ask me a simple comparison is the S4 :)
worst phone i ever have.. the first time I bought it i thought that it would last more than a year of me using it.. after a few months I was so so disappointed, and the promise of Android M hasn`t been release yet, and Android N is already on Beta testing, the Phone over heats especially when playing games, LAGS a lot, Android L 5.0 version is the worst of all, battery doesn`t even last 2 days. the only good thing about it is it`s water proof. nothing else.
The phone UI lags, the music app has reproduction errors, the task manager lags a lot, the brightness sensor sucks, the camera app is slow, the camera takes a lot to focus, the video stabilization criples the video quality, the MM update was promised long ago and is not yet delivered, gaming experience is horrible, underclocked cpu.The only good things about this phone are the water redistance and the design. As it is now, AVOID this phone 4/10 (I have had it for 4 months).
I had bought this phn 6mnth ago.....i served prblm till today...2times for repair company took it for a mnth...no camera quality no battry backup n also heating prblm..that means i totaly lost my saving on this phn...i don't get much relief or replacemnt by sony.....thanx

the white paper in by your memory card slot, does it come out or stay in?
Worst phone I ever had! Only problems one after the other!It`s my last Sony bought ever. Sorry, but you are a disappointment!
Still no 6.0, even 7.0 has been announced. It's ridiculous, I want an iPhone ASAP
I have this phone for less than a year now.. all I can say is it`s a good phone for a mid-range level.. it does what typical day to day task, the very down fall of this phone is it over heats.. YES it does over heat, a lot especially when gaming is involved, there are also some games that does not run good even though it`s not even power hungry, battery most of all is a LIE it says on the advertisement it`ll last 2 days, sad to say its a falls advertisement, I`m not even a heavy user but the amount I get from battery is not fair enough.. by the end of the day i have to charge the phone, I get home and like the battery is in 15%, at first I was loving it.. then I came to like it,, then now I wanted to change to a new phone so badly.. I was hoping to get the upcoming Xperia X, judging from the video reviews of android authority it`s a good phone..? but is it really worth the buy? Sony could have gone using more than the snapdragon 650 of course less than the snapdragon 820 but should be above 650, I should say snapdragon 650 could power up the Xperia XA/ XA Ultra a snapdragon 652 perhaps or 810 should do.. but since 810 was used to power up previous flagship phones sony didn`t bother. I saw the Xperia X Performance in real life not just videos and I was surprise, they could have done better than 1080p, should have been QHD the latest processor is in it the 820 but it could have gone better.
I received a small update for "system update app" . It now shows apps on the update center like music, whats new etc. i thought it was already the Marshmallow update.
It's so good and it is slim on hand and lite moreover,it has beautiful system such z2 shape
I'm using this phone to 8 month. It is bad phone at this price so plz don't waste your money buy this phone. I suggest moto g3 or g4.
Cemara quality is poor and phone performance is slow and bad but i repair saftware.
I'm phacing diffrent problem.
I would be happy that this phone make an update to 5.0.1 or 5.0.2 or maybe 5.1.1 Lollipop!!!
Anonymous, 26 Jun 2016i had no problem with this phone until it just went blank and after 5 min it was extremely hot... moreDo you understand about this phone design.
If there is back cover that is "thick", it will block several antenna that will need more power and generate heat.
The phone go blank is in standby mode.
Go to Setting --> Display >> Screen timeout - adjust to your preference.
HB 53, 24 Jun 2016Phone became extremely hot ,around the camera lens area,I have had no problems with camera,vid... moreThat is the location of GPS antenna, which would not affect the overall of the phone.
On the other side, it is the Wifi /Bluetooth antenna.
Do not block both side on top, as any blockage will generate heat, as it need more battery power.
MaSimelane, 27 Jun 2016I enjoy the phone but the OS takes up too much of the internal storage and that limits the num... moreThere is one method you can use to free more storage.
Remove all apps that you seldom used &or to use it once in a while when necessary.
When you really need to use the app which you use it once in while, then install. After using, uninstall the app.
This is like having a temp storage space for to install to use, and uninstall when not in use.
Theory, is that the temp storage is for those apps that you use it once in a while.
There is no harm in this way, as install and uninstall will be much better.
These apps' data which use a tiny storage space, and may not deleted.
Hence, once you re-install the apps, the apps will have that apps' data, everything it there.
Most apps you install & uninstall will be easily available to find.
These apps are located in Play Store -> My apps and games -> ALL
I don't think many user know about this options which benefit user like you.
That is to uninstall those seldom use apps, and when needed then go to ALL to locate and install to use the app.

Buci1234, 24 Jun 2016I have this problem : everything works fine except the speaker, I can't hear clearly while tal... moreHave you adjust you volume of the sound.
Behind is speaker. On top is to listen to the caller. Both are different.
Normally, when waiting to connect, i use speaker to listen until the receiver pick up.
When someone speak at the other end, i turn off the speaker.
Most phone on top is the sound of caller, and put it center of your ear, and adjust accordingly.
Try not to use speaker while talking, as mainly for music and listening to dally tone.
Use earpiece to see the difference.
