Have it for a month now, moved from iphone to z5p, and this phone is working great, also have sony's android smarttv and PS4, everything is talking to everything through the wi fi without any problems, sony just keep up the good work. And please do something with heat disipattion 810 is like a calorifier
Had two handsets, first one overheated and went 'brick' for 12 hours. Replacement given within 28 day of ownership. Six weeks later the replacement after streaming a film for an hour and a half went black out and wouldnt turn back on. This phone runs hot. Not impressed.

mediter, 11 Feb 2016Before you buy your Xperia... I had two Sonys in my life, an Xperia Acro and the Z3 compact... moremine was submerged for 18 hours in water and still works to this day so I would say they are waterproof having testing that :)

Anonymous, 11 Feb 2016Mine is Z3. It is amazing phone. I don't want to upgrade. What is your opinion about Z3?Z3 was the overall best Sony Xperia I ever owned in terms of performance and battery life. If it had a bigger screen I would not have upgraded to Z5P.

Before you buy your Xperia...
I had two Sonys in my life, an Xperia Acro and the Z3 compact. I loved the minimal android bloating and the added apps from Sony make the virgin Android even better. The processors are fast (with relevant to their times) although not as smooth as one wishes, and they both had a superb camera which no one can complain about.
But... but... here is the warning. They are not as robust and waterproof as Sony claims. In fact they are not. I fail to understand why Sony make the 'waterproof' claim when water would one day leak in through the flimsy plastic flaps. It will happen and Sony would not want to know. Moreover, sea and pool water are not covered by the term 'waterproof'. The waterproof term is only in labs conditions (think Volkswagen)!
So if you buy a Sony, for which you are paying extra to have it called 'waterproof', make sure you do not use it near the water.
Sony refuses to learn the lesson and this also relates to the other Xperia models.
after I purchased SONY and tried it, I am strongly recommending for all of my connections to purchase it. I do believe in SONY that they are the best NOW
