But its better than Z5P no doubt. I suggest wait for the XZ.
[deleted post]Who said I denied benchmarks? You dont even understand english?
I was talking about "ReAL life BENCHMARKS". AA conducted both compound and real life benches. Based on these they rated the SoCs.
Hello Sony Lovers out there! My Z2 works fab even till now...but due to a drop of battery in my phone..I would like to make a switch! ... Wanting to know from those who bought XZ and the reviewers of this phone...Is it worth the buy? and I would also like to know if Z5 Premium was better??
TeamAndroid, 22 Sep 2016''M5 would be a better choice than Z3''
- If I where you I would hide and never showed up aga... moreZ3 is 2 years old, no more in production. The Z3 phones you purchase now have been stored for so long, hence the battery capacity will have decreased. Any phone, if you store it for months without charging, will lose its battery capacity. This was the whole reason why I don't recommend buying a Z3 now. Z3 is better alright, buying it now is worthless. Might as well get the Z5 or even the X.
But you can't talk straight can you? Talking in a very childish manner and making a big issue when someone recommends a M5 over Z3. All your comments are full of taunts and no facts, again shows your pathetic attempt to win an argument.
No one was talking about the Z3 v M5, but you come up and make a huge issue.

This comment of yours was filled with random nonsense. Half of it was already answered in my previous comment.
What does the screenshot you provided prove? GeekBench doesn't list all devices in the top list. There are lots and lots of phones and chipsets, you think they'd list all of them?
In real life performance you won't notice a difference between them. AA also conducted REAL LiFE BENCHMARKS, and Helio X10 scored same as SD800, get it noobie?
And what stupid comments of your's were you talking about? Can you show me that?

- If I where you I would hide and never showed up again in the public again after stating something so stupid... really don't what else to tell you regarding that . bc even if we completely disregard the chipsets M5 IS TRASH WHEN COMPARED WITH Z3. PERIOD .
also do you realize that you are advising someone to get CRAP PHONE INSTEAD OF GREAT PHONE ! ? !
''why were you asking for geekbench 4 scores of Z3 and M5? ''
-I wasn't , you are the one who brought Geekbench 4 nonsense when I told you that geekbench measures only CPU raw performance ( I had of course in mind Geekbench 3 version) . you claim that Geekbench 4 compute bench would make a difference yet you can't provide any scores for Geekbench 4 LOL
''Already commented about the reliability of GSMA's reviews. told you about their mistakes XA's review and M5's reviews. I'd given you a link to a more reputable sites which compares all top SoCs ''
-and I already told you that there is no mistakes in gsmarena review and explained why there are differences in scores , your reputable sites are crap biased amateurs and I asked you why aren't you there instead of here if gsmarena is not better than them LOL , you won't find me trolling there on androidautority ;)
''they ranked Helio X10 above the SD801 ,In some benchmarks the 801 is faster, but not by much.''
-those some benchmarks are most important ones , helio crap wins multicore because it's octa core 64-bit which is potential that will remain unused at the moment when it comes real world performance .
''Don't know what comment you are talking about, it may have been deleted by the mods.''
-It's not deleted , you are obviously avoiding to answer some of my questions that you don't like or can't answer .
here is done by me SD800 on Geekbench 4 score for CPU bench : http://imgur.com/a/ksM8d any comment's ?
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2016M5 is failure phone. It has auto shutdown issue. But Z3 is superb phone.A software update fixed that issue.
Anyway stop taking about the M5 vs Z3 thing here

I told a EVEN M5 would be a better choice than Z3. You then decided to put your head into it and make a big issue out of it.
- If you knew geekbench 4 released a few days back, why were you asking for geekbench 4 scores of Z3 and M5?
- Already commented about the reliability of GSMA's reviews. told you about their mistakes XA's review and M5's reviews. I'd given you a link to a more reputable sites which compares all top SoCs, they ranked Helio X10 above the SD801, or in line with 801. In some benchmarks the 801 is faster, but not by much. You talk like as if I'm comparing a SD200 to SD801. Helio X10 was mediatek's flagship SoC.
- Don't know what comment you are talking about, it may have been deleted by the mods.
Still not 4GB of RAM... I think it's not quite enough for a flagship phone (just flagship), as it should be the most treasured phone of a brand. As I know, all other brand's Android flagships has at least 4GB of RAM. Even my G5 can just suit my daily needs...
XZ pre orders sell out in just 45 minutes,check out the link:
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2016- no one was arguing, it's just you put your head into a healthy discussion, which you made in... more-even a healthy discussion is considered spam when you are doing it on the wrong page , it's not related to XZ . and you are spreading misinformation that you can't possibly support with a reputable source .
-yeah I know that it was released recently , not exactly few days more like 3 weeks ago or more , SO WHAT ?
-I don't have anything to back my comment ? YES I HAVE ALL BENCHMARKS DONE HERE ON GSM-ARENA THAT ARE CONFIRMING WHAT I'M SAYING . and I did quick check of benchmarks on Andaut .and most are in favor of SD801 . LOL
-Are you ignoring my other reply to you , pretending like it's not there ?

about the battery I told you why could be charging slow and what you can do to charge it faster ... I didn't mention anything how long it will last you .
Arian Adler, 21 Sep 2016Best design in all 2016 smart phones ...Imagine it with edge to edge display, it would be insane.
TeamAndroid, 21 Sep 2016 '' Dual SIM without an SD card...!! With 32 GB left '' - agreed that really sucks .
'' Hom... moreTeamAndroid, glad you agree on the SD card, but that is essentially a deal breaker as you do not get the Dual part in reality.
Now, I would greatly appreciate if you can share how to do landscape for Z5 Premium for HOME screen. I have gone through all possibilities and yes it does landscape for anything but the home screen despite the setting being there. So I'm open to ideas.
Battery charge, Z3, Z3+, Z5 premium take comparatively long time to charge....but do not last much longer than iPhones if at all for Dual versions with data enabled... Z5 needs a big battery probably just to compensate the screen being so power hungry. But I am a user and you do not impress me with numbers, it is about user experience not spec rivalry.
As I said, I have been a great fan but keep getting disappointed. Out of 5 Sony's in the last 4 years, I have had 2 with screen problems (fixed, read, replaced under warranty). Z5 premium sound is actually lower than Z3 and practically unusable on speakerphone in a slightly noisy environment.
Lastly what I forgot to mention from a user experience, Sony keeps taking things away. e.g., MHL connectivity, sense me (recently removed), home screen rotation although you don't agree, info-eye in camera was there in z3 but not z5. And let's not forget it took an oustraged reaction from users just to get music dark theme....I'm writing this as I hope Sony reads and cares about customers. And I want to keep buying Sony but things are not looking up.
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2016This or z5Dude, totally this or Z5. Like my exact same position as I currently haven't got the Z5 yet.
TeamAndroid, 21 Sep 2016-you are arguing on XZ page about Z3 and M5 , why didn't you go there , that's first fact whic... more- no one was arguing, it's just you put your head into a healthy discussion, which you made into a flame war.
- if you didn't know, Geekbench 4 just released a few days back.
- again you don't have anything to back your comment. All in the Android Authority's SoC comparison they gave snapdragon 801 last place. In some benchmarks (including real life, not just compound) Helio X10 was faster, some SD801. Hence it can be said Hello X10 is in line with OR a little faster than s801.
- Helio X10 isn't a midrange SoC. It's built on the high performance 28nm HPm technology like the Snapdragon 800 series.
