If you use software like Black Domain Green Guardian for everyday use and shooting, you're welcome to join the family of Sony fans.
Beno, 10 Aug 2018I found this phone for very cheap in excellent condition. Do you recommend me this device in 2... moreHei Beno. I have this phone for a year and a half and i can tell you its is excellent build quality, great photos and video, and it moves pretty fast. The only downside would be its battery; it will last you around 3 Hours screen time.
I found this phone for very cheap in excellent condition. Do you recommend me this device in 2018 ? (I never had a fast flagship device before, I only used midrange phones like Samsung and LG). Is this device fast (opening apps ) ? And how does it perform in games ?
I used to have a Z5 but the Nougat update ruined the battery so I got rid of it. Is Oreo on the XZ any better?
So, very good experience with phone, until you put it into water. Take care, NO WATER PROOF at all, I was cleaning it in my bathroom, with a little water and soap. It crash directly, nothing on screen and then dead. Same problem with and NEW Xperia Z5, after only few moths, dead after immersion in water (some time ago)

Also the XZ just reach the last major update, most Android phones just have 2 major official updates and after that just security patches.
I wish Sony release android p for this crappy device :D I`m using it almost 2 years with very weak battery life ;(
Finaly get rid of this crappy shit, worest phone I ever had first and last Sony, Sony cheating its customer very badly, Even in winter season this shit was used to like HOT cake, can't perform a basic camera functionality whenever open camera it's shut down automatically due f***kng temp rise.Having falgship specs this shit can't even compete with any Chinese or Samsung midranger.
It is my advice to whoever planing to buy any Sony shit Please don't waste your hard earned bucks.
Samsung, Huawei, they are much better and have better software and hardware integration.
Troll, 21 Jul 2018Then why sony throttle cpu to 55°c? Back my xperia z3 cpu throttle set to 73°c, which ... moreAgree,why smartphone nowadays with built in camera is for convenient sake, the basic concept must be usable without worries.My real past experience is : I use Xperia Sola at year 2012,not a FLAGSHIP or high-end phone, but when i travel to Taiwan it doesn't give me any headache while using it to snap photos and videos. When i saw the guard rotating shift ceremony i just took my phone to record the moment,it was more than 15 minutes and the phone did not gave stupid overheating and force shutdown camera. I mean, technologies are upgrading each and every month and ofcourse we expecting better and reliable products. what is the use of having Ultra speed or Super Megapixels or whatever beautiful tech description but the smartphone unable to perform a standard basic function????????
I WAS a big fan Of Xperia series.
Battery life bad!
Phone gets hot then super slow even if you delete your apps, reset the phone and even delete your music and photos.
The USB cable doesn't fit properly, it's loose and comes off all the time, even if you make sure that is clean and it's not damaged.

Back my xperia z3 cpu throttle set to 73°c, which is why xperia z3 is the best phone ive ever use. Xperia xz is the most stupid phone i ever use,. Whenever im Using hotspot, then phone start to lag cause throttling on 55°c.. I ask sony support, they say for "SAFETY" ,. U can compare to another brand, while xz camera closed automaticly due heating. Wth sony. Even my laptop gaming temp limit to 75°c still no problem on 2 years. Sony no more i swear.

Even with those conditions I'm getting Winner Winner Chicken Dinners in Solo. And of course, before u start to rant, u got to know the fact that the target audience for PUBG is on people using newer smartphones with SNAPDRAGON 835 and SNAPDRAGON 845, or even for some smartphones with a newer mid-end chipset like the SNAPDRAGON 660. Why even some mid-end SNAPDRAGON 660 can do better than this high-end SNAPDARGON 820 u may ask? Well, it is thanks to the extra multi-core score if u give a damn to GeekBench, it is able to play PUBG more smoothly than this smartphone. Plus in 2016, high-end flagships are still dealing with overheating issues, let alone mid-end flagships. The SNAPDRAGON 820 may be way more powerful than the notorious SNAPDRAGON 810, but it still overheats, and that's a fact. A few years later, even the SNAPDRAGON 845 probably have difficulties playing a new game in the future, because the game demand increases as the performance in smartphones increases. Think again...
OK, using this phone for 1.5 years now I have opinions.
- nice display, quite good even in direct sunlight
- good sound, usable EQ
- the battery is weak, didn't last a day even when new, now I charge it 4x a day
- forget using the camera in summer, 10 pics and you get the "Oh sorry the camera will shut down because it got overheated", which brings me to:
- it overheats in a wink, from anything
- no matter how you lock it, it sometimes just unlocks itself in your pocket
- even if it was a flagship, speed-wise it's more like a flagsh*t from day 1
- not sure how but my USB-C connector fell in so it's a pain to charge it since only the last few mms of the plug reaches the port... you move it a millimeter and it stops... arrgh
It's my 3rd Sony (Z1, Z3 Compact and now this) and also my last. Will go to Samsung or Apple for my next phone...
