AnonD-145833, 04 Jun 2016Battery is the problem with all modern technology. I don't think you can say Sony is at fault.... moreI don't agree it is 2016 and called a smartphone,,how can any of these devices be smart if you have to compromise every time,every year? We should be able to have screens on full brightness, enjoy all things being on else it is a dumb phone if you have to switch things off.
What is point if you have to compromise by switching things OFF that is non smart and just really annoys me that this happens. Cannot rant anymore causing too much stress but this applies to every company but Sony are pretty good in battery department.

First of all he said repeatedly that x ca... moreSony phones are reporting overheating very early, but that is not a mistake. It's most likely a result of used electronics. Different phones tolerate high temperatures differently. It might be so, that Sony chips are dying at 40*C, while alternatives (like Samsung) are working fine at much higher temperatures, so the phone won't report overheating, won't stop any apps and won't turn off.
You might want to read a bit about differences in large CPUs made by Intel and AMD. The approach is different, so while AMD processors are already struggling at 50*C, Intel chips are still fine at 70*C. That's exactly while Intel dominated the ultrabook market (small form factor, passive cooling etc).

Don't you get it? That's the problem. Even though both phones measure at pretty much the same temperature, the Sony one thinks that it's overheating. Clearly the so-called 'overheat control' by Sony isn't working as well as intended.
"...so the problem here is the main camera security system is very sensitive but it shouldn't be, so the problem here is software..."
But ultimately there IS a problem. Whether it's software or hardware one, it still matters. It's really quite unacceptable that Sony decided to half-as$ its flagship(s).

First of all he said repeatedly that x camera is overheating then he tested the temperature of both devices and they were similar at 40, then he insisted that x camera is overheating lol, secondly their is an application in all sony devices called 'overheat control' so when the device becomes overheated it some times dim the screen and restrict hardware performance and decrease charging speed.... To prevent phone from damage, so the problem here is the main camera security system is very sensitive but it shouldn't be, so the problem here is software.
Everybody is talking about the price, if that rumor about 400 bugs fix and the ability to send applications to sd card happened i don't think it is overpriced.
This is very good phone people. Search in youtube. It is mid range phone with 3GB ram but outperforms many flagships with 4GB ram. Wow it is super. Because Sony phones are well optimised. Remember that and go for Sony...
is the dual sim version have two slots + the SD card slot, or hybrid SIM / SD card .
It looks Sony managed to make this phone overheat while 1080p recording. And they priced it as expensive as other flagships. Pathetic.

Battery is the problem with all modern technology. I don't think you can say Sony is at fault.
However as users we can also do little things to increase battery life. Primary one being if we think the phone will not be used for a few hours or we are going to be to busy to answer any calls/messages then turn data off, or put into flight mode. Little things like this will aong with doze get you extra hours for when you are actually using it.
Sony is the real top for quality in any component but a lot of smoke in the eyes marketing support always Samsung and Appple
AnonD-122669, 01 Jun 2016All the people complaining about mid-range processor, check out XEETECHCARE's video reviews &a... moreVery true! Those are the best reviews by far. Specs are not everything, it's the software optimization that counts the MOST.
