What nonsense info posting below,,,
Z5P Beast best flagship of the year 2015.
An amazing phone, just remember one thing, is a Snapdragon 810 (overheat also when the new update SOC 810 v2.0) so... I prefer wait a new SOC or buy other phone until decide for new one
$750 CAD is $560 USD, that is a pretty damn good price for this phone, let alone any flagship. Damn...
Got this phone and i can say that it deserves its name premium. The design, camera, almost everything. Worth my money. I am now with Sony...
I bought it and when I peeled back the foreskin, the chip fell out
I have the chrome one with the mirror back. I love the unit...great screen and HD and 4k video looks stunning in it. Battery last a little more than a day but I don't care much for that as I use a Qualcomm certified quick charger, I plug it in and in an hour the battery is topped off. The camera looks good and takes crisp images with the 23MP sensor.
All in all no real issues here.
i have this phone. really enjoying it. gets a little warm. battery is okay but would struggle to get more than 24 hours out of it. the paint on the metal scretches pretty easily. i've bought a sony case for it which is rubbish

As I said: Well, At least benchmark scores of this premium z5 device are worth more than your opinion.
Tann Hauser, 28 Nov 2015Well, At least benchmark scores of this premium z5 device are worth more than your opinion ;-) Those benchmarks, which are rather poor, is for peak performance, which the snapdragon 810 can't keep up for very long. Sony should refresh the Z5 line and equip it with the Snapdragon 810, which is the chip the devices should've been outfitted with in the first place.
I had this phone in my hand in mediamarkt, but it did not attract me at all, the reason is that the four corners of the phone are uglie it looks like small bra on big t i t s piff, will sony ever learn from mistakes rather then repeating on every phone the same ugly vision!
