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.

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.

Please do not buy this garbage phon... moreI can still play PUBG with a fair amount of fps with Smooth-Medium settings, not the best nor the worst. 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...

this is the most garbage phone that i have ever been used. Please do not buy this garbage phone. there are many reason why this phone is huge waste of money. this phone is only good on call and messaging other than that is garbage. You cannot play any games such as pugb, mobile and some other games because it get overheat and become lagging and freeze all the time so in gaming this phone because useless nothing but a piece of garbage. The camera... the software camera is really bad if you got in the hot weather the phone gets overheat then the camera shutdown automatically. so what is good about this phone??? nothing! yeah that's right! what a scam. this the last sony phone i purchase. i'm not gonna buy any of sony phone again.

Performance is great except battery ,easy heatup and Most Importantly, BLUR camera quality..worst than M5! i buy this phone is because i want to upgrade to better phone..but photo quality i really can't accept it...like a cheap 5 yrs back old phone...really REGRET to update to 8.0.......just use for 1 week and already regret.....
Pre-ordered mine October 2016 and still using it, I agree with the overheating part, especially for the camera and gaming. Still getting around 2.5 to 3 from medium to heavy use, playing Dragon Nest M, snapping some pics, and managed to install 3D Creator from XZ2 which can scan using the front facing cam and I have like 100+ apps installed, and at least 20 of them I use regularly.
The only thing I don't agree with some, or most of the comments here is the lagging part, because I don't encounter it from my day to day use, and I haven't done any resetting or anything drastic like that, running on the latest firmware as of this writing 41.3.A.2.149 with June 1, 2018 security patch under Oreo 8.0.
The Xperia XZ camera video stabilization is good, but it heats up easily when recording and stops recording automatically and disables camera. Wifi connectivity and sim card signal is relatively weak, thus disconnecting itself from server easily from time to time which gets annoying. I encountered problems of the phone restarting itself repeatedly until the battery died after approximately one year of usage. significant lagging also appears after 1 year of usage. All these are issues i encountered after about 1 year of usage, hence personally I think this phone is not really worth buying for the long term. I have factory resetted my phone and also software repaired it but automatic shut down and restart of phone problem still exists. Not sure if mine is a defective good, but i doubt so as it served well during the first year of usage
