Charging the phone three times a day pfff full of it. At least own the device before trying to talk rubbish about it, quite sad that you had to pretend you actually own the 6s.
Just bought this thing a few days back and I am NOT happy!
I switched to it from my beloved z3 compact after it got water damaged because of broken rear glass and charger flap.
Believe me switching to an iPhone from android was a worst decision of my life!! So beware android users - this thing, is just, not, for you! You will regret if you switch, especially from a android flagship.
I was after a compact phone with waterproof and near stock experience. Naturally my only choice was xperia z5 compact. Unfortunately though this phone is not launched yet in my country and probably will not ever. Furthermore, I didnt like its design over z3 compact anyway. The z3c white is not available either. Other than this one, the nexus 5x was also into my list but given its over 5" display I was not very sure about this one either.
So, after being insisted by the sales person I ended up buying the all new an iPhone (I didnt do enough research before buying this this, my fault. But that doesnt change the fact that this was rather a downgrade buying this one!). I admit it was a hurried decision on my part and I am regretting buying it while I am typinng this from the same.
It just cant rival the power, customisation, & freedom of android OS no matter how hard it tries, if at all. Following are few things in particular which I really hate about this phone:
-- Worst battery backup - didnt even last me a full day. Have to charge twice or even thrice to take a full day out of it. Full day backup with a "heavy" usage is a joke so don't believe anyone who claims so. Beware ones who do surfing the most. This thing is just NOT for you. My xperia z3 compact used to last me even 2 days with "actual heavy" usage. I miss that very much.
-- No USB OTG support.
-- No mass storage support.
-- No file system accees support.
-- No direct song download. Only through iTunes or third party apps.
-- SIRI is mad. Doesn't even understand a word sometimes.
-- Basic browser.
-- No call record. (Only few cheap workarounds)
-- No "true" Truecaller
-- No customization.
-- No notification LED
-- No back button. You need to reach to the top of the screen. Lame idea ever!
Of course, these are only few demerits of buying an iPhone which matters me the most among many others. So dont be a fool switching to this brick as I have done. The iPhone is good only for:
-- Smoothness. (No surprises. My z3c was the smoothest android out there)
-- Apple support (read updates)
-- Range of apps
And above all:
Well, thats about it. Nothing more than a hype. Flagship android users just stay away from it if you dont want to refret like me.
This was my honest short review. Really looking forward to the next xperia or nexus which is under 5", have waterproof and preferably metal unibody to replace this garbage. I cant forget my first love but cant sustain marriage with this one either. Will divorce soon...
AnonD-487815, 15 Jan 2016I highly recommend buying this phone! It is great.. If you never want to progress in life that... more"WTF! Live photos?"
"SamsungÂ’s upcoming Galaxy S7 will reportedly deliver with a new feature called Â‘Vivid Photo,Â’ which will be a clone of the Live Photos function on iPhone 6s, allowing users to shoot images that come alive when they are pressed,Â” Killian Bell reports for Cult of Android."
I highly recommend buying this phone! It is great.. If you never want to progress in life that is and want to be LOCKED and controlled by a piece of fruit with a chunk missing out of its side. But basically what you will get is an iPhone 6 no wait, iPhone 5s..oops..iPhone 5.. sorry my bad again, An iphone 4s.. ok sorry, an iphone 4... ok lets get to the point, Apple suck, They show no improvements other than physical appearance and a slightly faster processor each year. Apples 6s quote "The only thing thatÂ’s changed is everything" umm.. ok, We like to smoke drugs too.. But not that much. Oooo a new 12 megapixel camera, My Galaxy S2 takes a better photo, And no OIS in 6s???? WTF! Live photos? HTC zoe?? And for gods sake, No full HD screen? You can sit there and physically count the individual pixels on that so called screen. Lightning cable.. Um, ok.. You really got to admire the power of physiological marketing.. Selling people poo in a box for lots of $$$
Anonymous, 13 Jan 2016>Implying the Z5 is a downgradeYes I am. A big downgrade compared to the iPhone 6s. I would put the iPhone 6 way ahead of the Sony z5 devices also. If your gonna compare flagship android devices to iPhone at least pick a good one. Sony's mobile division is a joke. Also I like a fingerprint scanner to work another problem they can't solve.

Also that water resistance claim on the device is garbage the originally claimed that you would be able to submerge the device in a certain depth of water when the z3 came out then retracted the statement from there site after so many complaints on their own support site. They then said the device could only be water resistant to outside weather and accidental spill's. Then there was the software update delay. every other device got before Sony. The Samsung s4 got the update before the z3. Then there's the problem that the device gets outdated every 6 months due to a release of a rushed same new version of the phone which has a knock on effect to updates agian. The device and their customer support team are a total joke because if you do experience a problem with a cracked screen or water damage that really wasn't your fault you better be prepared to pay up for the repair. I speak from experience after being a Sony user. At least with iPhone I get regular updates the device stays fluid and easy to use over time. As for water resistance I have never needed it and there are now cases I can buy. As for the battery I could of went for the plus version and had a exellent battery but instead got a portable power bank off Amazon for my 6s if I need it but the battery seems to last all day with heavy use anyway. Each to their own hope you have better luck with Sony than most other users have had good luck. They have a bad past with the z line and even featured on UK BBC watchdog let's hope time has changed them.

is it more better than LG V10 or Gal... moreS6+ falls into another category, it depends if you want (to be more specific=if you need) a phablet or not. For normal (lets say it this way) display size go for iphone 6S. If you like bigger display i should have chosen note5 (not available in Europe) instead of s6+.
Phones now a days are disasters in terms or hardware quality.. good old Nokia, sigh.
LG V10,Asus Zenfone 2 Laser ZE551KL,Samsung Galaxy A9
idk about phones.are these phones good?
Too many Sony fanboys on here. Jealousy will get you know where guys. No body that owns the 6s is gonna downgrade their phone. Wasting your time. The only reason you guys keep appearing on this page is because your obsessed with the device yes there are other good devices like the new nexus but Sony would be one of the last devices that that I would downgrade to.
