To be honest, I prefer the J5, it's got all the features [plus ringtone recording, if that's your bag] and is much cheaper. I owned a Z5 for a few days [eBay] but sold it again because for the money, there are better phones. This is a very good alternative to the usual Nokia/Ericsson/Motorolla stuff which everyone has but I still say buy a J5 and spend the difference on something more worthwhile.
I used to think nothing could beat Nokia phones until I got the CMD Z5. By far the sexiest looking phone on the market, fantastic screen and very light. Compare the calculator and scheduler on the Sony with that on the Nokia 8000 series and you'll see how much thought has been put into it. The battery life is shit but I simply stick it on it's desk charger when I get in and ready to go the next day. The other area where this phone scores badly against Nokia's is the lack of easy to download ringtones but I can live with this. I've had Nokia's, Ericson's and Motorolas but I have to say this one tops them all. The MZ5 could have been a challenger but I think it's just too heavy. Anyway, I can't understand why some people are giving the Z5 a hard time. I just love it.
The manual is not to good with this phone, it does not give instructions for use of the WAP service. If any can enlighten me please email me...

It's almost the perfect phone: Lightweight, solid, jog dial.
But the battery-life is not too long, and the speaker is not really loud:
Pre: Ringtones a-plenty:
And there is a simple program that converts nokia ringtones
I've been using it for some time and anybody who tells you it sucks is defenetly wrong! Also, it's not ideal, it has some details missing, but it's all compensated with great look and no weight.
Thigs I like the most: design, active flip, great screen with 4 shades of gray, answering machine, POP3 email, great schedule, great phonebook with 500 items space and icon for groups and different ring for every group, details...
Thigs I don't like, but don't care too much:
You have to read email on-line (no download or save option), battery doesn't last too much (2.5 days for me)
Advice: Sony had a lot of software upgrades, many bugs were corrected, so check and make sure your phone has latest software (6.4.7). Code for this is: *#release# Many of the problems people talk about does not exist in latest versions
Nice phone, lots of features but too light and plasticky, poor battery life and distorted earpiece.
Using Sony for about 3 months, I would say its a great phone, but there is one thing that I could not find in this sery, that CMD Z5 does not include a 'Voice Dial' feature.
Hi, i think is it a very good mobile,i saw it with many friends. the size and obtions are more than great...wish i can get one.
the bottom line this is the one and only phone you ever want and ever will want.
