AnonD-404798, 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.
AnonD-404798, 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.
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2016This or z5I love XZ, because it have special blue color: Forest blue and the new design and the refining aluminum alloy: Alkaleido body and Qnovo and RGBC-IR and Laser focus and 5 axis stabilizer, 64GB storage, 13MP selfie camera, but Z5 have the strap eyelets and lighter.

Anonymous, 21 Sep 2016How idiotic your comment is.
Geekbench 3 measures CPU performance ONLY. Starting with Geekben... more-You provided Geek-bench 3 scores , Not Geek-bench 4 .
-Yes I do , if you don't think this is reliable site why you are here reading it and arguing with us ?
-So what ? doing few benchmarks in the row is quite a strain on CPU if score was low it's because of thermal throttling , not GA fault .
-I think that XA received an update in meantime , anyway battery sucks big time on that phone .
now few things I've got to say about you :
you are a troll because of :
- first reason : because you are arguing about Z3 and M5 on the XZ page ...why didn't you go on the page where are Z3 or M5 .?
-second reason : You deny scores from the link that I provided , saying that this site is not reliable and giving me link to other much more biased site in which I'm not interested one bit .
-third reason : It's common knowledge to everybody who knows anything about mobile chip sets that SD801 if greatly superior to Helio X10 , I cant't believe that you are that much misinformed , either you are a troll or you know nothing when it comes to chip sets .
-Because of the reasons above you are not worthy of wasting my time to argue with you .
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2016True my first Sony is w8,then c4 and now xa.. Now I know why their price is a bit high after I... moreYep. Sony's after sale services might be unreliable but if their phones are built to last then it means there would be no need to visit their service center. I previously had an Xperia C4 with zero issues and now I switched to Z3+ which is a worthy choice.
[deleted post]1. antutu i not realy relavant
2. benchmarks results dosent only depend on chipsets,they all so depend on software,android verision,screen,ram etc.. these results are form whole system not just gpu and cpu
3. did you see the video m5 vs z3? i post link and z3 open app faster,same andoid,and software is probably very similar,if is not better on m5 is newer phone
4. s800 i less powerfull then s801,biggets score with s801 is on m8 on this page,m8 has s801 ab version,on z3 is ac version with higher clock on cpu and gpu
if some body has m5 download geekbench 4 run all tests and submit,i will run on z3 and we will see scores
and even if they will be better on m5,its still slower then z3
[deleted post]-you are arguing on XZ page about Z3 and M5 , why didn't you go there , that's first fact which proves that you are a troll .
- I gave you link on this site with bench results , you deny those saying gsmarena bench is not correct giving me links to other sites in which I'm not interested one bit , maybe you should go there on those sites to argue with someone else . and by the way you provided scores from Geekbench 3 not Geekbench 4 , so who is really making id!otic comments ?
-it common knowledge to anybody who knows anything about mobile chipsets that Helio X10 is inferior to SD801 and even SD800 ... I can't believe that you are that uninformed ,
-because of the reasons above arguing with you is total waste of time , either you are troll or really dumb .
Blablabla, 20 Sep 2016People who never use sony phone always critics on Sony...if you use Sony phones...you will kno... moreTrue my first Sony is w8,then c4 and now xa.. Now I know why their price is a bit high after I used I can see the difference I didnt went to service center even once and they are more durable.
Tann Hauser, 21 Sep 2016True on that reliability thing tho....
They retested XA after prolonged use, and it showed ... moreI'm sure their endurance test ratings are no way similar to real life usage and battery performance.
If they retested XA, They should do for X and XP.
[deleted post]What happened to you? No more counter evidence or facts? Aww how sad.
Hold that L now ;-)

Geekbench 3 measures CPU performance ONLY. Starting with Geekben... moreTrue on that reliability thing tho....
They retested XA after prolonged use, and it showed how Sonys UI battery intelligence actually works ....
from 40hr out of the box....to 57hr, without any updates.
Funny thing, they never cared to retest and update batterylife of X and X Perfomance the same way....?!

I see the Helio X10 outperforming the 801 in most cases,
Oh and read their final verdict ;-)
Now see who is making the stupid claims, lol.

Geekbench 3 measures CPU performance ONLY. Starting with Geekbench 4 they added GPU composite benchmarks too.
And you call this site reliable? Lmao.
All other sites show M5 scoring in the 44k mark in AnTuTu, and only here it's scoring 38k, which is ONLY a mere 2k more than what the M4 Aqua scores?
And about the accuracy, this site is wrong again.
First they gave the Xperia XA a 40hr endurance test score. They complained about the poor performance. Then they did a "retest" in which the endurance score suddenly jumped to 57hours. Accurate?
