And Z5 should have a bit more rounded edges to look better. Sony's biggest design-flaw is the square style, which doesn't look good (at least, that's the case for me).
At the moment I own an sony z3 compact. After almost one year the phone is still fast (faster with 5.1.1) and very nice to use. There is no signs of wear and tear, battery is more then acceptable and for the first time i have latest Android version on my phone. UI is clean and simple and there is no gimmmicky things like hovering with your hand above the screen. My only complaint is that flap which i need to open every time i want to charge the phone. But that can be resolved with that magnetic stripe thing and probably there won't be any charging flap in z5 models. Camera is also nice.

ktwo, 25 Aug 2015another Sony phone already ..... are they retarded ? quality over quantity people :/ yet you dont complain about samsung's new phone releases
There is something I like about Sony, but i know i'll miss HTC, the operating system when rooted is simply unbeatable.
The camera and waterproof shell, now with fingerprint is quite a lot to turn down though. If the CPU turns out to be the 820 and there is an SD slot with 32GB of internal. i may be swayed.
First thing i'll do is install Google experience launcher.
JonHolstein, 25 Aug 2015Should that not depend of what they release now?
If they release a phone with a CPU from anot... morethe bad thing is, there is no choice at the moment, samsung is busy producing enough exynos and apple chips, the not seem to sell them to other buyers and yes, than there it the snapdragon 810 with much power, especially gpu wise but heating problems and the 808 with less power. qualcomm could have released a 808 with adreno 430 gpu but they did not so thats it. the helio x10 is weak in gpu, has old ddr3 ram, in cpu its good in benchmarks but not that fast in app loading and decoding so its more like a chip for a midrange phone. a good choice for xiaomi to put it in the 111euro redmi note 2 but its by far not a good choice for a highend phone. aditionally, the z5 with mediatek chip already exists, its the m5.
so at this moment, the best chip for a phone avilable for me would be the snaphragon 805 but it lacks 64 support whioch is bad for marketing and will have future drawbacks. so you have no real choice.... i like the way xiaomi did with their mi note, they build in like a cooling system to get rid of the heat, does not work perfect but what you can tell of the tests it works quite well and you have almost no issues with heat. the oneplus one solution is also a very simpel but efficient way so there are solutions to deal with the 810.
or you make like a z5 with the 810 chip and you announce the z5 prime with 820 as soon as its available with a higher price tag. so people wont get frustrated their flagship is outdated when the prime is released because they knew it, people that find the 810 good enough can have fun with the hopefully good camera and can profit from a lower starting proce. so sony can sell the cheap flagship phone and thew very best flagship phone at the same time whgen both versions are available.
of course also not the perfect solution but for me this is what i would call a good solution
I seriously don't get it... Ebry1 is asking for a new design in sony phones... But what abt sammy..
They didn't do much.. just used glass and metal instead of plastic...
What could sony do.. They already use Glass... So the point is Gsmarena and itz sammyfanboys and whatever wants Sony to use plastic in their phones.. Hell no...
If they'll use plastic, will you stop complaining... Hell no
ktwo, 25 Aug 2015another Sony phone already ..... are they retarded ? quality over quantity people :/ As opposed to samsung, who release a new phone every day?!!
I don't like recent Sony phones. They tend to have large unused space on bottom bezel.
Why can't they make something like Xperia ZL with minimum bezel space?

I understand you are Samsung fanboy, yes but why post snide remarks about Sony phones? And the new autofocus thing in the Z5 could be something which no other phone has. Also you're telling that the only 2 changes that will be brought to the Z5 is fingerprint reader and better cameras? This comment of your's proves you're a Samsung fanboy. My question is, what do Samsung fanboys have to do here?
First thought: "Sony developed the revolutionary crapp*y system that makes all shots blurry".
So ironic, an ad for a focusing system that is out of focus.

If it only 0,3 sec. It even doesnt worth to mentions..
