robogo, 24 May 2016It is completely obvious you never used a Xiaomi, especially the Mi 5.Or I guess you haven't used an Xperia at all. The Mi5 was so freaking bad especially in durability. An iPhone 6s is much more durable than the MiBend, or I mean the Mi5.
Razor, 24 May 2016Horrible overpriced phone. Why am i not surprised. And yet sony doesn't get why they're not ma... moreObviously your on a Razor tight budget with those Low end cell devices you mentioned, leave Sony for premium users.
Ladys and Gentlemans,
That's UK Price.
In UK Z5 costs GBP579 ($844), while in US $499 (Amazon).
So, it won't be priced $430 as many have thought, but $250-$300.

Sorry if you are offended. Let's not be primitive or uncivilized by getting angry at each other. There. All taken care of. Good day to you sir.
Julliard, 23 May 2016Psychological marketing using the euros sign currency instead of usd. Oh, 299 definitely sound... moreIt's not the Euro sign, you ignoramus, it's the Pound Sterling sign, which considering the article is about a phone being sold in the UK, is not really clever marketing is it? I'm pretty sure the people of the UK (of which I am one) would be pretty pissed off if GSM Arena suddenly started writing articles about phones for sale in the UK, but quoting the price in US$. So think before you write stupid comments. The world does not revolve around the USA, as some of you quite clearly think it does!
Good to see Sony keeping up with their tradition of overpricing their phones. Why would anyone want to buy this, except for the screen, when you can get a superior phone (Mi 5) for less than 300$?
Anonymous, 24 May 2016Hello, if you have used C5 ultra before, maybe you will have a different feeling about this br... moreHi, i had so many sony smartphones, currently i use z5p, and i bought many more for my relatives including green c5 ultra the and its really briliant, everything is great espiceally performamce and screen.
Maybe you had a faulty unit or just you didnt use it well
Grey1213, 23 May 2016You do realise this phone is worse than 2014 flagships right? Its certainly not worth the mone... moreYuck. Xiaomi is better? You nuts?
Xperia X Performance has better display, better camera, better audio (including headphone output), waterproof, better software and timely updates
Mi5 has more RAM, and is cheaper. That's pretty much it.
Also, Sony is a well reputed brand, unlike Xiaomi. I'd be ashamed to use a crappy Chinese phone.
Only reputed Chinese phone company in my eyes is Huawei.
LynX-007, 24 May 2016" Mi5 is the better than Sony's flagship " *snaps like a cracker*You can get the ceramic version for less than the Sony xperia x with 4gb ram and 128gb storage. So yeah, its better. The x performance might have a better camera but that's it really. Yes, the xp has front facing stereo speakers, but I'd prefer the better screen to body ratio since I use headphones like an normal person.
yee, 23 May 2016same with LenOto g4(moto g4)
same or worst specs than g3 but is a "new model" so they think t... moreEh??
The new Moto G has a Snapdragon 617 as opposed to the Snapdragon 410 in the G3. Only the "Turbo" model had a Snapdragon 615, but it was priced higher as well.
RAM, processor, screen, camera, battery all have been updated. What else do you want at the price point? You cannot get a Snapdragon 820/Exynos 8890/Kirin 950/Mediatek X20 at this price point. Even a 652/650 is relatively high end for the price point, with the sole exception of the Redmi Note 3 pro which is simply the best value phone out there.
Anonymous, 23 May 2016It's Pound, which translates into EUR385.86 or $433 at current exchange rates.Yeah, you get the idea. No need going too detail over it.
Phones are just getting bigger and bigger. Pretty heavy too! over 200 grams! This phone size is just ridiculous... SO-05D my favorite sony phone.
