I like this phone but performance seems to vary from firmware build to build. The recent one ending in 171 is good, but if you receive the one ending in 184 don't install it, battery life and phone idle battery drain are not as good for sone reason.

remax cooling gamepad? no lag any hours?
Eh. My Mi A1 open apps faster and doesn't lag. The XZ seemed to hitch a lot, especially when apps update on the Play Store. At least this phone has nicer cameras, great screen and the front-facing speakers which I really like. Got the XZ for $120.
Another anonymous, 02 Sep 2018Your friend phone camera is a shit ^^Lol. Both phones' cameras are mediocre at best. At least xiaomi can shoot portrait mode.
For those lagging playing any game with xperia xz, root it. Or buy "Gamepad Cooler" find at amazon. Works for me. Nomore lag on any game yey
xXENDER FREAKXx, 20 Jul 2018I can still play PUBG with a fair amount of fps with Smooth-Medium settings, not the best nor ... moreMy friend has a xiaomi phone that cost 150bucks which can play pubg better than this phone. Sony phones are junks. Their thermal performance is the worst among android phones.
It overheats when taking still shots in low light, picture quality is blurred. get the following message ' NOTE, camera will now turn off temporarily to cool down' just for taking low light pictures, also get the message 'Some functions disabled by temperature rise'
during normal use i.e.standby it makes a great hand warmer in winter.
It is slow to change screens.
I am sure the design works for some people but i have had mine replaced 4 times in 15 months.
If someone from Sony would like to explain why this phone has all these issues i would be most grateful.
My business partner has gone back to his Samsung as it works oh so much better.

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.
