I have this phone since January.. Today tried to wash it with water then the 3.5 audio jack got confused it started to think that I plug a headphone and unplug it quickly. 😕 had to use a hair dryer to fix it.
Some thing strange has appeared on my Sony z5 scream,how to remove it?
Anonymous, 12 Aug 2016I don't know about Z5 but Z3 is really great phone.thanks a lot.. is the front facing camera of xperia z3 takes good?
Rear camera in 23MP mode gives you a 4:3 aspect ratio picture. You have to lower the MP to 20MP to get a 16:9 (wide screen) picture. The battery does not last as long as the Z3 used to. Why fix something that is not broken? The Z3 seemed like a more finished product. I got a crap set of earphones with my Z5. Did not get in ear ones, feels like I've been robbed.
I Don't recommed this phone to anyone,took it 6 times to repair service and it is still not working! If you wanna very good sony phone, I recommend sony xperia z2
pls help me to choose.. which phone to buy.. z3 or z5.. i heard theres many prob w/ z5.. how about z3?

E.S.R, 05 Aug 2016Your get a fake xperia z5,get an original one and you see true performanceMy phone is quick to over heat and glitches quite a bit as well. It's definitely a real Xperia maybe we both got lemons.
DenisXD, 06 Aug 2016Crapy Front facing cam: Umm no, it's actually quite alright. Maybe not the best but it's reaso... moreI love my phone but I don't think it's built to last, the phone gets so hot after a couple minutes use I can't hold it. Maybe Z6 will have a way of cooling itself down.
asifz, 30 Jul 2016Hi, your answer would pay my money which I earned with effort.... only 3 simple questions: ... moreboth cell phone is best in performance and bettery life so don't worry u should buy this one mean to say Sony Z5 :)
Sukhi, 06 Aug 2016Frnds plz tell me........... i m confuse b/w sony z5 vs nexus 6p. Which one is a better?? Lo... moreclose your eyes and go for 6p as it has much better screen(amoled), camera,battery and performance and at the end of the day its nexus so no worry about the software and security updates
Ucgillz, 03 Aug 2016Don't know about anyone else but my experience with xperia z5 .
Crapy Front facing cam.
Main... moreCrapy Front facing cam: Umm no, it's actually quite alright. Maybe not the best but it's reasonably useful.
Main Camera performance in low light sucks: Not if you know how to use it. Where to focus, where to put your subject, how to use exposure triangle rule. I've seen people taking beautiful photos even with cheap as.s 10e cameras, It's down to the photographer how to take a good picture.
Phone gets so much heatup, After taking couple of pics camera app gets shutdown: What? that's a lie kiddo. The ONLY way to make the camera overheat is 4k recording, tested. I couldn't get the camera to shut down no matter what else I did, even ar effect couldn't shut down the camera.
Speaker volume is very very low: No it's not. It's not W995 loudness level and quality, but it's not quiet for sure. It beats many other flagship phones in speaker loudness, or it's on par.
And no matter what i do, this phone never gives me Screen On Time more then 3 hrs.
and its without 4g: What? again no. Z5 has one of the best battery lifes in standby, and it's on par with galaxy s7 which has a good battery life. Screen on time is subjective on what you do and it's brightness.
My be my unit is big time faulty but for me its my worst purchase ever. :( now i know why sony don't sell well: They don't sell well because they don't throw millions on marketing like samsung and apple do. Z5 is the most feature packed flagship to date.
Please don't start a fan boy war over my comment. Its just my experience and its really really bad: Where's your proof buddy?
