years ago when they was still "sony ericsson", they produced very good phone with best audio quality (walkman series) and also best camera quality (K series).
But.. they become worse since they migrate to android. No more best audio quality, and no more best camera quality.
Anyone know why they become worse like that?
Only thing I don't understand is why the reviewer says that the Z3+ had a horrible overheating problem that really crippled the device and then, in the end, says that he doesn't see many reasons to choose the Z5 over the Z3+, even though the Z5 doesn't overheat.
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2015we will see that alot of random reviewer will put samsung and apple device ahead from sony's. ... moreI hate the game reviewers are playing but I love that most of you realise that these reviews are not independent. There is always a fact before the act.
it's not my wish that sony take the first in dxo mark ranking, it is a reality!! wake up sammy boy!!
GSMArena review always says that the audio is good, even though the values are very far from top (the most critical one being headphones attached).

we will see that alot of random reviewer will put samsung and apple device ahead from sony's. but not for dxo mark!!! you cannot paid dxo mark sammy, admit defeat!!!
Chamila T, 21 Oct 2015look like u spend a lot time researching web for SONY dude. Yes, I do, not only for Sony, for every OEM! But Sony a little bit more, cause I was a Sony fanboy!
How many times do I need to mention that!
I don't know why did GSMArena delete my previous comment.
I would say its reviews of Sony phones aren't fair.
Sony really is " Like No Other" the magic statement.
the best design.
the best build quality.
the best camera.
the best reliability.
Chamila T, 21 Oct 2015SONY make a bad move in past year with SD810. they did not test the device but release it. now... moreYou want an explanation????
You have no idea what you are talking about and are just an extreme Sony fan.
First off....WHERE IN THE WORLD DO YOU THINK THEY WOULD USE A PROCESSOR IN THEIR FLAGSHIP WITHOUT TESTING IT??????????????????????
Obviously they tested it. It was just the only main option for a top end chip.
AND PEOPLE ONLY GIVE SONY A HARD TIME FOR IT????? lololololololololol.
The explanation to that is you must not have ever been to any other page except one with Sony in the title.
Ever since the very first Snapdragon 810 device has been released all people have done is criticize the S810 and every device with it.
Where planet have you been on this whole time??
TannHauser, 21 Oct 2015OMG...
Z5 has overall best camera on a phone, period
It only is not best in nightshots, but ... moreAnyone who says the 1020 is only on par with the Note 2 and about the iPhone 5s in camera is not an expert.
And you can whine all you want in denial but the results speak for themselves.
Even Sony themselves admitted there will be an update because of issues with the software.....
Though that is more for other aspects. The images will probably still be the same.
Dual heatpipes, 21 Oct 2015Why not? but I really can not accept those always defame Sony about the overheat and other no... moreIf there are more intelligent people, there wouldn't such thing as conflict in this world.
they may trimmed down touchwizz, but it still lag as hell!! after six flagships generation and it is still lag?? come on sammy, move your lazzy ass!!
sony beat samsung in camera, in 4K recording (5minutes vs 20 minutes), in build quality, in protection from water damage (ip cert vs non), in audio (active noise cancelling vs none), in smoothness operation (bad ram management, laggy keyboar etc). sooo saad!!!
i know it is sad that the best cameraphone is not a samsung device according to dxo mark. so sad!!! try harder next year samsung!! admit defeat this year!!
Anonymous, 20 Oct 2015It is overall a con and its not like they said this only for Sony.no it is bullcrap from some sad ppl who cannot man up and crying like loosers ooommgg nooo remov batt. nooooo jesus christ pathetic..
I always love going to the comments section right after reading a good review. There are sooo many people fighting over which phone is best. And soo many people trolling just to watch flames erupt from the fanboys. I find all these hostility amusing.
IMO though the z5 seems like a great phone. But it just seems a bit behind the competition
