I have gone through your comparison with Sony, Samsung and Apple phone from long. I never seen that you gave credit to Sony. You prefer Samsung personally. I am using Apple, Samsung, LG and Sony phone since long. Every family member has different models, I have quite big family and you can imagine how many cell phone We have in our home. I can say sony has best camera from other brands you know how to use camera.After sony, One plus one has awesome camera, then LG and Apple. 2nd thing, Noone ever write about durability of the phones, Xiaomi and Samsung phones start lagging and hang after 8 to 9 months, Apple and Sony far better then other brands. I hope you will show ur comparison neutrally in the future
This, is just the comeliest, the fairest, and the most unbiased review I have ever read in this site. without any hesitation whatsoever, showing all the weaknesses and the sheer strengths in each of the three "Monster 'Brawls'".
lek, 28 Nov 2015shame on you, mr.switch. the fact is S6 > Z5, and I know it's hard for you to accept that. ... moreWow you guys are so sad, let it go, they're only phones, Samsung & Apple fans don't get so obsessed, calm down, calm down. The blind camera test is reasonably fair, the Z5 won so there, let it go. I'm happy with my Blackberry Priv, & it did well in DxO Mark camera test, so that's a bonus.
AnonD-19086, 25 Oct 2015still i think z5 is a clear winner,benchmark nowaday doesnt important much,the important thing... moreevery company cheat in benchmark tests especially in antutu that one is the worst.... benchmarks only prove who is better deceiver of customers :D
Sony have their Japanese pride and honor or something like that ....if anybody catch them cheating they would be so embarrassed that they would probably quit making smartphones for good while Samsung want even be concerned with something so trivial xD they are actually proud to copy apple design and everything else...
FIRST this whole comment section should be deleted by moderators because 75% of it are trolls and people who just because they use certain brand or phone like to insult and bash others and in most cases they never even tried firsthand those devices they try to defame. PATHETIC.
HERE IS SOME REAL USER EXPERIENCE FROM ME :
Until recently i have bean working in small smartphone shop,besides selling new phones we also bean doing service and repairs and taking old devices to sell in second hand.So I experienced most devices first hand and also been able to give my old device + some money and buy new ones.So I used many phones like LG G2 and G3,HTC M8 , Samsung S4 and S5 and whole bunch of xperias from Z1,Z3,Z3+ and now regular Z5 and Sony phones are my favorite but that doesn't mean it's best it simply suits my needs and never disappointed me so far unlike others! to put it simply Sony win me over....
Using Z5 for 2 moths and It is great phone so far....
Camera is great I just hope SONY will improve SuperiorAuto mode which is nice and more than sufficient for most users but I think it could be better.
Battery is awesome can go trough one day of heavy usage and 2 days of moderate use( I use my phone most of the time for web browsing and watching YT and play some games like piano tiles etc....) but start a real game on more than 65% of brightness and I will drain any of these suckers in less than 3hours that is how it is with phones today.
IPS LCD screen is realistic and color accurate unlike amoled in Samsung which is just more eye pleasing but that is more mater of preference!
Sound quality and music listening is the best I have ever experienced on any device so definitely a strong point!
Phone is fast like any other flagship out there but also have simple UI which is lag free :) unlike heavy skins like touchwiz...
Design is awesome simple,elegant,classy and premium some Bond shit man....
is it worth the money? YES if you can pay that amount for just your phone.
does have any weak points? I'm trying to find them...usb type C would be nice...maybe better flash for night photography but all android phones lacking these so I cant complain much :(
is it heating up? yeah it does slightly like any other phone with quad or octa core CPU but no overheating present ! to put it simply all chipsets generate heat when used :D otherwise we wouldn't need coolers and fans in our computers same with these phones.
I am not a fanboy! I love all the tech and right now I'm really exited about upcoming S7 my last galaxy was S5 which had lot of potential but not good enough,S6 was disappointment for me hope that S7 will be different.
Have nice day people and...
.... trolls you all can eat a di*k.
Haveheat in this review in such aspects Sony is good but winner is s6... Are you making ppl fool....users. Are throwing there Sammy in dustbin..... Because of champ in slow....... Z5 kills ppl who needs better speed music. Display camera battery allllll.... Z5 top
Whole world is disappointed because of Sammy slow..... When I saw s6 I m finished superb blindly buyed... After 10days of hard use mobile getting slow automatically for calls even msgs getting lag...but Sony much faster than alll of Sammy... Note 5 can not compare to z3.... Dony stand top on Android softwares....really z3plus gets heat but nobody can touch it... Z5 awsome reduced heat and alll....Sony Z5 kills Sammy and iPhone best phone ever.... Sammy finished
By the way, people really need to learn the difference between phone heating up like when playing games or warming up.
I think it is also a problem caused by Lollypop 5.1 update
Look at S6 fans claiming S6 is so faster than Z5 because of tests while the whole world is complaining about Samsung's slow UI & heating problems in S6.
you should be wiser. we're already in the end of 2015. you better dont buy any sd810 phones. you better wait for sd820.
Z5 and especially z5 premium for me!!
I still bought a Z5, great phone
uncle sam, 03 Dec 2015dont argue about this phones just leave the decission on the buyer which phone he likes best..... moreMerry christmas as well. Hopefully this nonsense will have end by then, or at least cooled down.
dont argue about this phones just leave the decission on the buyer which phone he likes best...okay ba friends...merry christmas to everyone
Dual heatpipes, 27 Nov 2015Mr troll, the Dxomark show z5 won, but you all stubborn samsung fans don't believe and troll a... moreThe dxo also said something like the iPhone 4s best the 1020 and that the note 2 matched it.
Dual heatpipes, 25 Nov 2015which model you get the problem? if have problem Sony will release the software update to solv... moreLol! Nice try. But you just admitted you know about the issues.
They are too cheap to fix their defects if you are not under warranty even though it's a major defect and dramatic flaw
hey heatpipes. you can read z5 premium review in this site. the z5 premium review in page 5 states this:
", the Z5 Premium heats up like a champ and quite fast at that"
"Regardless whether we are copying files to the PC, running a single benchmark, or watching a video - the Z5 Premium gets unpleasantly hot in its upper part. It won't overheat, but we noticed considerable performance drop in some of the benchmarks (up to 30%) and we witnessed forced brightness lowering in order to avoid overheating."
[deleted post]wow.. okay.. now, wake up mr.switch! no more bed time. back to reality, yet Z5 is the worst than the other two.
