About the throttling in z3+ and z5 series, the sd810 is design by qualcom so qualcom create the driver, sony can push any update but what it can do is nothing, cause its hardware problem, fixing the driver isn't much help either since qualcom itself had to make a refresh of sd810 name sd810AB to compensate the throttling problem, and the refreshed h sd810AB is not any better than sd810, sony did try to fix this by installing dual liquid filled heatpipe, a more aggressive solution than lumia950 liquid cooling(actually a single heatpipe with liquid in it, sony got two)

I don't play much graphically intensive games on my phone but the type of storage would help in terms of loading an app or video for that matter.
So, even if it's Sony's fault why can't they just put their hands up, admit it's their fault and issue an update to fix the throttling?
What's the difference between the Z5 and XZ? Z5 picture quality isn't that good so I think I'll pass on XZ was already disappointed by the Z5

A couple of years ago I checked the camera of my cousin's Xperia z2, at that time I was shocked of the bad quality of the pictures, But again this happened to me recently with Xperia XZ, amateur quality of pictures, the XZ's camera is not very different of the Z2's.
ACTUALLY I AM AGAIN DISAPPOINTED IN SONY, BAD CAMERA, BAD SOUND, BAD BATTERY LIFE ESPECIALLY AFTER THE 7.1.1 UPDATE, BAD CONTEXT MENUS, CHILDISH VIDEO AND AUDIO HANDLING, I couldn't find, eg, a catchy notification sound for WHATSAPP. Nearly all the sounds are fluttery and bloated, yet not catchy.
I had an LG flex 2, its dispkay is ways better than the XZ's.
LG is better than Sony especially cameras and display.
And what adds salt to injury is the stupid preinstalled apps like AVG and Swiftkey, and they cannot be uninstalled.
As I regret my choice of the XZ, I would try the XZs for free as a compensation.
nawab, 02 May 2017S7 or xz confuse which to buy The S7 of course. I was in the exact same dillemma as you a couple of months ago. I was choosing between the S7 and XZ but the XZ was pricier at the time so I went with the S7 instead and I realized it's so much worth it. S7 is better than the XZ in just about every aspect, from the screen, camera, processor, RAM to the design, compactness, battery life and software features. You're getting more value for money in the S7. S7 is an advanced smartphone that even after 1 year it still matches and even beats current flagships like XZs, P10 and G6. The only thing better than the S7 is the S8 and the S8 is only a minor upgrade from the S7.

I don't even do 4K video recirding and I have set the camera MP down to a minimum of 8MP (16:9) or 20MP (16:9).
But I have sold the Z5 and will be posting it in the next 24 hours. My next target is the XZ. My only concern on the XZ is apparently the speakers sounds a bit weaker than the Z5. True?

If the XZ has better optimisations and better battery life than say iPhone 6S (or 6S Plus) as it stands with their new software (Nougat 7.1.1 now on XZ & iOS 10.3 on the iPhones) then this is the path i'll go. Comment?

The advantage of ios here is they had some soft... moreI can agree. There was a short docu from Android Authority explaining that iOS may use the same (sometimes) smaller memory to run/load apps than Android but again Apple has a workaround (a secret software algorythm) that creats a cached version of the app and loads it instantly.
I wish Android was like that as well.

Is there any reason why Sony has agressive throtlling on their SD processors?
Re my Z5 I noticed "most of the times" the apps was cached and seem to load almost instantly. But is the XZ better in terms of minimal throttling and speedier app reload?
Did the multitasking improved after 7.1.1
Multitasking is the big issue with this phone

thats not true in fact optimizaon is one of the best and only time phone overheat if when recording 4k and 1080 at 60 fps
it was problem with overheating on z3+ and maybe on z5 but thats chipset fault
and if some app dont work properly i all ready said why in other comment
and there is big difference between heating up and overheating and most people dosent know it
if phone is hot and work normaly its not OVERHEATEEED
and even if it lag a bit when you go out of game still it dosent mean it overheated
i have xz now,before i had z3 and only overheating problem where with cam
z3+ did overheat, and maybe z5 but probably only if you realy pus here,becouse z5 have 2 heatsinks

maybe ios need less ram then android,maybe apps need less idk
its big difference between ios and android
ios i basicly made out of mac, android have linux kernel
and apps for ios have batter optimization thats true,its much easyer to make app for ios then for android,becouse you have to make her compatibile with sony,samsung,lg software etc... some app dosent work good on sony some on samsung, and thats problem with android,in fact not with android it selfs, it problem with custom android softwares form brands like sony etc.. in fact great thing about sony software is that it close to stock android so you dont have problems with app, but still apps wil probably wor better on stock android phone like google pixel or motorolas..
and i depends on devlopers, they can make apps to work perfect for some phone while for some not
