Rooniee, 10 Jun 2017Bro does sony xperia z5 premium gets much hotter??Yes bro it gets hotter than xa1 ultra,xz and xz premium, nowadays here we have 27 degrees so my z5 premium gets hot in less than 3 minutes and it continues, it's like a stove in my hand all the time, in winter it was much better, hopefully performance doesn't decreas sharply unless it becomes too hot,if you watch movies phone becomes a heater after 5 minutes and brightness reduce alot to control heat, i watch lots of movies so i give my phone break time every 10 minutes

man of war, 05 Jun 2017I think there is 95% chance that z5 premium won't receive android 8. It doesn't matter androi... moreIt depends on the phone dude. Look at the phone specs. More powerful phone, more Android O features you will get. Lower phone specs will reduced the features on Android O you will get.
Switched from iPhone 5S to this phone. There are some pros about it but my opinion is mostly negative.
- Great Screen,
- Feels premium,
- Decent performance.
- Headphone jack doesn't work, it's a chronic issue,
- Speakers are very quiet even at max setting,
- Back is fingerprint mark nightmare.
This phone is a good effort but when I cannot use the headphone jack without 3rd party software or the speakers are not loud enough to watch Netflix, this phone is a failure.
Melissa, 06 Jun 2017Hi guys...i need serious help.... i really love this phone but someone suggests me to buy Sams... moreHe suggest u to buy Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime because he thinks its a good phone. This shows that he doesn't care too much on performance, thats why he is satisfied by the phone. I suggest u to get Xperia Z5 Premium because it is really a good phone. Better performance (definitely) than Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime. And plus u like this phone, so go for it. People get phones by their own opinions like u like this phone, we decide what phone we want to get people give opinions just for u to decide
Hi guys...i need serious help.... i really love this phone but someone suggests me to buy Samsung j7 prime and he says '' its a great phone'' ... what do i do now? Plz i need a quick help...
Equinox Hydroid, 05 Jun 2017I think z5 premium won't get android 8I think there is 95% chance that z5 premium won't receive android 8.
It doesn't matter android 8 support 512 mb RAM, the companies decided which phones they want to upgrade, (some people think naive like this that now android 8 support that amount of ram so all this kind of phones will be upgraded).
Buy xz or xz premium if you want updates,
X1 ultra has a really magnificent screen it amazes every one,but upper and mid Ranger phones wont get many updates
man of war, 18 May 2017Neither z3 nor z5 have never had this problem you mentioned here this is the first time i read... moreOne of my friend got z3+. It get hot and auto shutdown camera app. It ridiculous I haven't seen such a thing from other brand flagship.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 29 May 2017I would think that Z5 would be the choice. Midrangers like XA1 Ultra may not be updated to And... moreGoogle promises that Android O will comes to every devices even new or old devices, low-end to high-end, you will get Android O update. Even if you have a devices with 512MB RAM, u still get an Android O.
Equinox Hydroid, 26 May 2017Shall i go for xa1 ultra as i think that z5 won't get any future updates like android 8?!I would think that Z5 would be the choice. Midrangers like XA1 Ultra may not be updated to Android 8 because of the chip. Z5 would probably be updated to it. Look, a Google Neuxs device with the same chip as Z5 (Snapdragon 810) and got Android Beta Program still can run Android 8
Equinox Hydroid, 26 May 2017Shall i go for xa1 ultra as i think that z5 won't get any future updates like android 8?!Can you afford xz or xz premium dude???
As you know xa1 ultra is mid Ranger and I'm sure it will get just one major update
Shall i go for xa1 ultra as i think that z5 won't get any future updates like android 8?!
Ashley, 26 May 2017I heard from JerryRigEverything about Sony Xperia Z5 premium it has 2 version just like Samsun... moreUS version has fingerprint on right side but it is disabled due to some problems, if flash another region County like Europe version the fingerprint works fine,
I heard from JerryRigEverything about Sony Xperia Z5 premium it has 2 version just like Samsung on their Galaxy S7 and S8, US & Global version, I dont know code version for these 2 version, but What I want to tell you about, There is No Fingerprint scanner on side right on the Power/Lock screen button for US version... suprisingly enough.
Global version has all content on this specifications, but the problem is on US version. that's all I wanted to tell
I currently own this phone and although i could spend all day boasting about it quite frankly i wont.
This phone still has the same issue as the previous Xperia Z range, the phone bends.
My phone was less than 3 months old when i noticed the phone looked a little mis-shapen, so i decided to log a call with Sony and as the phone was expensive enough as it is i never purchased insurance, only to be told that unless i wanted to pay £300+ to get it fixed then there was nothing they could do... and even then there was no guarantee that they could fix it. I kept being passed on from manager to manager as my argument was it should be covered in the warranty only to be told that the warranty only covers manufacturing defects to which my response was surely it is, if i cannot even stick the phone ion my pocket without it bending, but no matter how hard i tried pressing my argument i was never going to get anywhere and their support team was useless, and in the end i ended up getting frustrated with their lack of help or support I just cut them off.
Overall it is a very strong and stable phone with very great performance just make sure if you're planning to buy it buy a strong case to prevent it from bending, and dont stick it in your jeans pocket.
Overall: 8/10 (looses two marks for the build quality and the fact it bent)
cillah, 23 May 2017is it advisable to buy this phone?If u are the kind of person who like to watch videos get this because of the stunning 4k display. I would recommend u to get this phone or if u want more performance too then u should wait for XZ Premium
