If only XZ has bigger battery, has OIS, better in low light camera, has at least 4gb ram resulting in more fluent performance and futureproof, has UFS internal memory resulting in faster loading, USB 3.1, and more attention to details -- more useful features like Chinese brands has, and lastly NOT overheat. Then it will sell like peanuts because those are what consumer wants.... as long as it has great performance, brand and value, then consumer will buy it no matter how much the price is.
Few years before, SONY means EXPENSIVE and QUALITY -- But now, SONY means OVERPRICE with so-so quality.
Hirai's attempts to cut price is a really bad move.
I don't care what people say every bad things about this device,, I'm using Sony for long time, and I believe,, XZ is very good, superb android phone.. Great to use for a long time.. Durable, smooth and solid.. Can't wait for october to buy this beast! Amazing..
People who never use sony phone always critics on Sony...if you use Sony phones...you will know how great the phone is...
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2016Sorry my friend. I've confused M5 with Xiaomi mi 5. Lol. But anyway M5 is failure phone.M5 wasnt a failure, it just didn't get the same attention as the higher end Xperia Z phones because M5 is a midranger.
Anonymous, 19 Sep 2016M5, XA and Z3 are all Xperias dudeSorry my friend. I've confused M5 with Xiaomi mi 5. Lol. But anyway M5 is failure phone.
Anonymous, 19 Sep 2016Z3 is superb phone dude. But it is your choice. Buy your Chinese crap.Lol, XA and M5 are Chinese crap?
fico1, 20 Sep 2016no ist not becouse only things better on m5 over z3 are cameras and thats it,z3 has better chp... moreNope, M5 has a faster chipset than Z3. Helio X10 has a powerful GPU and CPU. Cameras of both the phones will be similar. M5 has a better front camera. Both have full HD displays, M5 has a slightly smaller one.
Anonymous, 19 Sep 2016Z3 is dead, it's not being sold on any major retailers.
Even if it's being sold, there are lo... morewell its not dead,you can still buy it,and its better choiche then xa,just is,its made better then xa,better screen,much better battery life,stereo speakera,its watterproff,its more premium,more ram,and that mtk is not bettery the s801,antutu is rubbish benchmark,worts of all others,and benchmarks dont mean to much
and probably back cam is better then xas

I was saying I bou... moredepends how you charge battery,and you should use original charger
if you dont have to dont use phones when is on charging,specialy dont play demanding games,and try to drain you battery to phone dont turn of and then chargre it to 100%and dont turn phone on,and do that few time,it might help
and its posible that is problem in calibration of battery,for that search on internet how to reset it
Anonymous, 19 Sep 2016In my place M5 costs as much as XA, and its more worth than both XA and Z3no ist not becouse only things better on m5 over z3 are cameras and thats it,z3 has better chpiset,cpu and gpu are better on qualcomm chipset no matter what specs say,krait cpu are more efficient then cortex on mtk chipset,z3 i made better,better materials,battery life is way better,it has stereo speakers,wifi i better on z3 etc... and probably software is better to,screen on z3 is better,z3 is simply better phone,dosent matter that is old,but is was a flagship,the best flagship that sony every made along with xz,and m5 is midranger
and m5 might be mo durable becose it has edge over screen,so it will protect glass a bit,but it dosen fell nice in hands like z3
z3 support quick charge and you have barometer
and i im not sure but i dont think m5 has x reality engine,becouse it dosent have Triluminos display

I was saying I bought the Z1C months ago. It was a great deal, but since the phone was old stock, it was stored for a long period of time. As a result, the battery capacity degraded.
Timotius, 19 Sep 2016i dont understand with Sony, previously they had launched Xperia X Performance.
But when i co... moreThe major differences with X performance are actually in the camera. This one adds the 5-axis digital image stabilisation, the new laser autofocus and 4K video shooting. XZ also has RGBC-IR sensor to figure out the color temperature of the ambient lighting, and adjust the white balance accordingly.
Add these to the new body and battery, and you'll understand.
Anonymous, 19 Sep 2016Dude, I have experience, that's why.
Got myself a Z1C few months back, had battery issues. You dont have enough experience....

My z1c battery after two years still gets me through the whole day.
