Camera is awesome.. and no overheating issue at all.. Performance is good.. No lag.. The only problem is its camera software.. Not very good. so I managed to get another 3rd party app.. And tadaa.. It's like magic.. All issues has been solved. Love it..
Ali does Sony pay you or something? I have been using Sony since 2011 and I daresay the xz is the worst mobile I carried. Battery life is on par with my 3 yo z2. not a big difference in camera, and the built quality in comparison to z2 is a joke. and where did the xperia keyboard go???? and why does it overheat in 2017..even the z2 heats less.
and performance, not remarkable by any means. facebook keeps crashing and always lags under 10%...the main camera is shameful, have you seen the ultra-soft edges, the super grainy night photos???
the things that deserve the praise are the screen and the front camera. nothing else matters.
ps. I sent it to Sony UK as it's under warranty. they said there's nothing wrong with it.

Phone is slow. I went from the Z3, to this phone in November. Ironically, this phone seems a lot more slow than the Z3. I have not been happy with this phone aside from the first 2 months I had it. I cannot run multiple apps at a time and I constantly have to clear the cache; otherwise, the phone runs slow with every program. If I use 2 resource happy apps at a time, such as Google maps and Spotify, even if Spotify is in offline mode, I can be promised that my phone will basically be "dead" for the next 5 minutes.Also, if FB mess. pops up, the phone suddenly come to a screeching halt. Also, when the phone starts lagging uncontrollably, the background, home screen will go from whatever color/theme I have it on to a purely black screen. At points like this, I have to restart the phone, which is becoming a daily thing - not something I expect out of a flagship phone or a Sony phone. This also happens almost everytime I start the camera too and upon starting the camera, I'm instantly told that some functions won't work cause the phone is getting too hot. Also, when I restart the phone, for the past few weeks, I've been told that rchandler has stopped working. Not good for such a premium phone that I use nearly all-the-time.
I am happy with the availability of the updates to the phone, the call quality, the quality of the camera images, the design (which I think is where the money has gone), the fingerprint scanner, the resolution of the screen, the speakers, and the life of the battery, though I still wish this was longer. I'll take the shorter battery in exchange for a phone that doesn't lag daily.
Anonymous, 12 Jul 2017How many gb is the s74GB RAM. But this phone got 3GB RAM and it have no issues multitasking at all. I am using this phone and I am very satisfied with day to day performance. That 1GB RAM difference doesn't change the phone a lot, it only helps multitasking or for storing Samsung's very own heavy but beautiful UI thats why
Ricky, 06 Jul 2017Sucks sony xperia. They make flagships mobile but poor battery. Oh dear u probably dont know about other phones at all, because sony has the best battery out there, this comes from a guy who has used devices from Samsung to apple
pravin, 09 Jul 20172900mAh doesn't enough for you? S8 with 5.8inch and bigger screen but only packs with 3000mAh!... moreCause it's the shame competition alls over Sony feeds! Hehe
Read Sony battery tech, sir, to understand Sony battery tech!

U might be thinking "3GB RAM phones can't multitask" then u are wrong. If they can't multitask, then how the hell is it going to run intensive games well huh? I got 150096 in AnTuTu and this shows what? 3GB RAM phones can perform well. Dude, yes the RAM is a little bit underwhelming, if u use a phone with more than enough like 6GB RAM but u downloaded a lot of apps, it also can't do shit like multitasking at all because the RAM is loaded by a lot of shit ton of apps. RAM doesn't matter, is see how the person use. If he downloaded a lot of shit apps, then I guess he will complain about performance and multitasking
Well smartphone are smartphone. Whoever need bigger ram should not seek it in smartphone because the laptops and Pc still exist. Whoever need better or best camera should use real Camera instead. Smartphone nowadays are already top notch quality even low end models from an unknown company from any ordinary country is good enough for everyday use. The profit margin in smartphone bussiness are razor sharp thin so every company try to differentiate from each other so many new fancy so called features(superpixel,QHD,bezel less,dual camera,2k,4k,slowmo,hires audio,etc) been heavily advertised. Basically it's normal and actually good to push new innovative ideas but we as smartphone users must be realistic in our expectation. There is only so much high tech, camera,battery, and fancy features can be put inside the already thin smartphone. We live in golden era of high tech gadgets now. Plethoras of choices are available no need to start bashing.

Of course it's going to crawl when you multitask. If you want true multitasking and great performance you should have gone for the S7.

Very Slow processing, what happen?
I just gave up my xperia z5 to upgrade to xz but im very disappointed. Once i open multiple apps, it starts to get slow even scrolling fb. What should I do? Use this only for call and text?
Im thinking of changing brands now, ive been a fan of xperia from z1 now to xz but this time, i think they were focused the outside looks rather than the inside.
The design and camera is so great.
