Anonymous, 21 Aug 2015I HOPE THE Z5+ wil also be unveiled on da same datebecause...........??
Same I haven't yet bought a sony phone and I am planning to soon so I hope sony keeps the omnibalance design one more year
excellent design by sony jst need a metal body with same omni balance design and mid ranger is looking sexy in glass
Despite SONY's old design, other manufacturers are copying it now. I love it.
drifter77, 20 Aug 2015You're right. Z3 Compact on SD801 picks up heat very quickly, whether you're browsing, gaming ... moreAll phones get warm after using. Snapdragon 801 on z3 Compact has no heating issues. Have battery problems after the update? Ever bothered to do a factory reset? For me the battery life went back to normal with a reset. Some people complain about issues after updating the phone software, but they never bother to clear cache or do a factory reset. You come under that loste unfortunately.
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2015This picture isnt true, I hope. It looks like Z1/Z3 Compact from back.Forget what I said, the volume button placement in this phone is much lower than in Z1 Compact and Z3 Compact. So this is a Z5 Compact. I only hope that 1. It doesn't have 810 2. PLEASE no IMX220 20.7 MP camera, it outdated, even Moto X pure uses IMX230 3. QHD on the full sized Z5 4. Better battery life.
I love omni-balance. Thank you Sony for keeping this beautiful design.

Anonymous, 20 Aug 2015Why Z5 when is not a z4 ??Actually they had the Xperia Z4, however it was only for Japan and this article is a good article telling why : http://www.androidauthority.com/xperia-z4-japan-602570/
The Z4 was called the Xperia Z3+ internationally because of the backlash of how the phone wasn't really a big upgrade comparing to Xperia Z3 .and you can see that on GSMArena here :http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_xperia_z3+-6878.php
Just look for the first sentence of specifications above the Network.
FrankDrebin, 21 Aug 2015I wish they had went with the 808 that its a six core, 8 core on a phone is overkill, hell eve... morewhy 808 take a performance jump and run a samsung chipset in it. after all samsung uses sony cameras in there phones, why not mutually beneficial agreement
JonHolstein, 21 Aug 2015Even the z3 runs hot. The camera app even has to close at times, and 4K recording is limited, ... moreZ3 doesn't overheat, stop spreading fake information. Z3 Compact can record 4K video for 20 minutes.
Anonymous, 20 Aug 2015The issue is that the compact versions are more tinier than the regular version, the z4/z3+ ha... moreEven the z3 runs hot. The camera app even has to close at times, and 4K recording is limited, due to overheating.
The 810 runs even hotter.
And as you say, all in a even smaller body.
Sure, they can throttle the 810, to not run any hotter than the 801, but then, you hardly get any more performance. Not worth a years wait.
We can only hope they surprises us all with either somehow gotten hold of the 820, or by going with someone else than Qualcomm.
