Anonymous, 08 Oct 2015Why do you need to root your phone and disable cores, when the Z5C doesn't overheat? Surely y... moreI have a Z3C and my phone isn't any slower when I half-clock two of the krait cores. Disabling two of the "big" cores would cause the big.LITTLE switching mechanism to jump to the "little" cores after throttling the "big" ones during intensive use instead of switching to the other two "big" cores (which causes a high amount of heat, current leakage, and battery drain). The battery would be a bit more efficient this way with little change in performance. Honestly, a 720p doesn't really even need the "big" cores at all when it has an Adreno 430!
AnonD-284151, 08 Oct 2015Time to make things clear:
1.Dxomark has tested the normal Z5 and not The Z5 compact.....so... moreRooting is actually very easy! There are methods where you install a program on the computer, hook your phone up through usb, then execute the program...viola, rooted phone! There are even downloadable apps that require you just launch them to root your phone. Disabling cores is easy too, just a tad more technical though.
Oh, and Sony actually did create a cool phone with the Z5C. Seriously, if Sony ups the resolution of the Z7C I may not even get it. And why do people complain about Z5C's cost? It was the same situation with Z3C and Z1C, where people said it wasn't worth it to upgrade. Once the next compact gets here, Z5C will be very reasonable :-)
Ale, 08 Oct 2015Yawn you jumping on the troll bandwagon to eh??...well it's not like a dullard like is capable... moreother guy you were replaying to said that he played a game for 30 min and no heat up at all and that is just one BIG FAT LAY....
Adiyel, 08 Oct 2015Yeah, I believe Sony has the option to run the phone with limits on the processor speedNo company allows it on non rooted phones....but if by ''optional speed control'' u mean that sony would downclock cores to avoid overheating,i dont think so
for every positive feature people provides, awaits double-negative response. like every people i know from every forum, may it samsung or lg or apple, battery is the main concern. all the same. but then sony page comes in.. every aspect of the phone except battery is discussed and everything is wrong. LOL! people need to be contented at some point right?
HECK! why do people have to put personal insults to people over a tech device because of its cons when they try to defend it over pro features sony provides?!
i dont know what kind of eyes people have nowadays and what standards do they have. but damn, xperia camera already delivers exceptional results! same as lg or samsung or jeez.. also apple.. does really a small point of comparison makes people decide which phone is better? does a cooler or warmer temps makes a phone better? AGAIN.. in every camera phone on this planet, if cant take a good picture, its not the phone, ITS YOU.
and why does people have to make it soooo complex showing some freaking computations just to prove a point?! LOL! yeah. include that f#cking history discussion too.
why does it seems people are SOOO SCARED if there is a phone better to what they have? does a phone make you TECHNICALLY SUPERIOR over other people?! thats just PUSSY and PATHETIC.
every phone nowadays are TECHNICALLY THE SAME. it comes down to personal preference. and theres nothing you can do about it you damn blinded sheeps.
Ale, 08 Oct 2015And what if I don't want to root the device and void the warranty, what if instead I would jus... moreYeah, I believe Sony has the option to run the phone with limits on the processor speed
can anyone tell me in which regions we get headphones with sony phones?

Anonymous, 08 Oct 2015Z5 and Z5 Compact have the same camera sensor and same software, hence same image quality.Z3 and Z3 compact also are identical but the compact one is a little(not much noticeable) weaker in still images

Jumbo, 08 Oct 2015So far all the "overheating" reports have referred to the same Chinese test who had a problem ... moreThis is a valid point. I've seen it across all brands. S6s that are LAGGY as hell (mine doesn't suffer from this at all though), iPhones with non-functioning WiFi components and so on. It happens.

ithehappy, 08 Oct 2015Why you guys keep saying "superb build quality" for a phone which's outer material is glass? G... moreBuild quality = the quality with which the phone is built. It refers to the finish of the device, the heft, how well it is constructed. Sturdyness is a whole different thing.
The battery is at least as solid as z3 compact in real life usage. The z3 compact battery time got worse with the lollipop update. Would be nice with a new battery test of z3 compact with lollipop.
