I've had this phone now for 9 months and it's no way as great as was first thought. Don't get me wrong, the phone looks good and has a superb 4k screen. Unfortunately there are some really bad downsides to this phone. Firstly the touch and feel - it's super smooth and therefore slippy. It will slip out of your hand and as it's an alleged IP rated unit, a new screen will cost you around Â€150. Secondly when the phone is in use (satnav or watching streaming TV/Video) it gets hot, very hot. The back of the phone is plastic and as everyone knows plastic is an insulator - so it just cooks itself - over heats and turns itself off. After a while, because it can get hot, the "glue" which is used to keep the back on degrades and yes the back will fall off. The most frustrating element of this phone is the build quality. The whole phone is stuck together with double sided sticky tape. A poor tape which over time loses it's effectiveness. Mine is about to go back for the second time. It could have been a really good phone. Unfortunately 2 repairs in 9 months mean it's one of the worst I've used.
amir, 05 Jun 2016no sound issue with Z5P dual.This is Z5P common fault. A lot of user is suffered headphones Jack can't detect the headphones. even you bring it to maintenance center for repair. Which will damage again. As I know the record is repair 4times then no sound 4times after maintenance.
the phone has amazing display, camera features. memory epic. Not so great for phone calls occasionally blacks out and won't come on until call ends, heats up a lot

AnonD-542307, 28 May 2016I was wondering. Is the sound loud enough through the mobile ear speaker while on call or not.... moreonly flash is not good while using at night ......rest is awesome. One pic covers around 7 MB to 11 MB that gives awesome clarity on desktop.
I was wondering. Is the sound loud enough through the mobile ear speaker while on call or not.
Is it affected by waterproofing
I tried before.acro s and sold it within 2 weeks bcz I.couldn't hear well thru the mobile ear phone.
I tried Z1 it was.the same issue.
So can any owner of z5 premium let me know?
i have no idea why since the Z2 the camera for sony went downward. After i've seen the pic quality of my LG G4 i can never look back at sony ever.
Pak Tile, 28 Mar 2016Its doesnt have a OIS camera feature in this phone?nope, only digital zoom
is there is any solution for the blurred edges when taking photos with this phone ??, this the only thing keeping me from buying this phone despite it's 23 MP the edges are messy as per this review and photos shown in it...
plz advise if reducing down image resolution can fix this, or if you are stuck with a 23mp camera that takes great pics and messy edges... :S
Amazed to see no discussion on the shameful tiny flash provided with the camera. I feel ashamed when I take pics at night in a party of my friends, as the flash just seem to be laughing at your face. You cannot remotely compare camera flash of ANY xperia flagship phone, with the likes of Samsung camera flash which is super bright.
Highly disgusted at the decision of Sony to provide a namesake flash in a flagship phone. Why cant they include dual flash? Why cant they make their flash powerful, so that atleast you can click a respectful pic during night. The flagship just turns into this piece of s**t when you test ita flash.
Are you hearing Sony?
Why doesn't sony put AC# codec support? It would be nice to check these sony handsets. For AC3 and quality stuff we have to goto LG G series. LG al the way.
