wait 6 months and you will pay half of this price :)
Any price above 400 euro for Z5 Compact is not reasonable.
Any comparison of the Z1C lime vs Z5C yellow collors? Preferably with a professional tool. I currently have the Z1C lime (which was a tough decision to not get the "neutral" black), which does have slight "green" tint in some lighting conditions. But I don't want to buy a "pure" yellow (or reddish/orange).
Guys this phone is not expensive..just to give you guys an idea'it has a 4k screen (premium only) those aren't cheap and it has high res audio just go to amazon and check the price of any high res audio player and not to mention it does offer 32gb built in storage.To compare a new I phone 6 plus still costs 900$+
I love Sony but they have to do something about their prices. For S810 which is just about last year's flagship, these prices are not sensible.
I am wondering why the Z5C is so much heavier and a bit thicker. There are two possible reasons:
1. The Snapdragon 810 even in its v2.1 needs huge thermal management (heat spreaders etc.). That would be extremely retarded and bad for battery life.
2. Sony decided to make the phone muss less fragile against drops and shattering glass by thickening the frame and case as well as the glass.
Let's hope it's no. 2.
My Z3C broke - first the sensors like gyroscope etc. stopped working after I dropped it (phone was in a case) and on later drop the screen partly detached from the device and isn't lighted anymore. The first drop (just from hip height) apparently deformed the phone.
Since when do pound sterling equal euros? This is embarassing, sony.
mas39, 04 Sep 2015Nothing wrong with the prices, it's what you would expect from Sony. It's obvious the 4k displ... moreExactly. Maybe pricing would also depend on the country, bec. taxes vary.
Here, the top model 6+(considering its specs, FHD, 8MP, Fprint sensor) costs us $1000++
While S6 Edge costs at around $880-900
So I think the Z5 family will be priced just in line w/ the other flagships here in Ph.
Nothing wrong with the prices, it's what you would expect from Sony. It's obvious the 4k display is going to come with a high price.
Expuse, 03 Sep 2015Z5C its definitely too expensive, why they didnt give 3GB RAM ? And this terrible overheating ... moreFingerprint on the back? No you're wrong, actually it on screen itself, just place your finger anywhere on screen, cool isn't it? Just kidding, fingerprint scanner it's the power button, yep it's on the back.. Kidding again, it's on the right side ..lol :P
Mailman, 03 Sep 2015Which iPhone costs 650 dollars? 4s
Sony was never cheap, even M4 Aqua is about 260 euros
Expuse, 03 Sep 2015Z5C its definitely too expensive, why they didnt give 3GB RAM ? And this terrible overheating ... moreSame reason with Z3c, because it's 720p screen doesn't that much to run compare to FHD or QHD.
I like sony range of phones, but sadly they have 1 deal breaker option for me and that is NON REMOVABLE battery. It simply sux. I cant imagine using anything less than Im using right now in terms of battery life and that is Zerolemon 9300mAh + Note2. I hate charging phone every day. I do it 1-2 times per week with my current device and battery and expect same or better battery life on my next smartphone.
Bad phone as I think
cyber, 03 Sep 2015they out of their minds,those outbrainless stupid bastards will see bankrupt note very soonlol brainless arent you, they turned a profit for the first time last quater
smart phones are way to pricey at computer prices. they are ripping us off.
Z5C its definitely too expensive, why they didnt give 3GB RAM ? And this terrible overheating SoC. Maybe this time Sony put better glass in phone not like before, everybody know about cracking screens in the Xperia. Not everybody like fingerprint on the back case.
