For those who wish of purchasing this phone, please reconsider. Why?
After updating to Nougat, this is what we get:
- The lock screen still the old one SONY (Home screen looks like when I got my Z5 10 months ago).
- No new refreshing UI basically nothing changes. Just the double window and the NOUGAT's LOGO (If that's the case this update is only a compensation).
- Updates were halted after launching it less than 4 days. (Which is totally a rubbish).

Elly, 20 Jan 2017Wanna buy a new cell please vote Sony z5 or sony z3 or samsung s6Absolutely z5, no doubt!!
Please can someone advise me whats wrong or why this is happening.
About 2 months ago i received my Z5,all was good battery lasted long no issues.
from a few days now i noticed when i charge my fone to 100percent it drops to 50percent in like 3 hours with hardly any use.and yes i do charge it properly i dont wait for it to reach 0 percent or die or anyting like that.when it comes to charging batteries i do the correct way and never had this issue with any other phone.i did do anyting different like download any new apps or anyting but the first 50percent drains superfast.after it reaches 50percent the battery lasts long as usual.anyone can explain y my first 50percent battery is draining so fast and what could be the cause or solution.
I do not want to take it back to my carrier as they will keep it for 6 weeks and then give it back to me with nothing fixed as usual.PLEASE SOMEONE KIND OUT THERE HELP ME
