good for social media only, but the battery is very wasteful and always heats up fast
Anonymous, 05 Apr 2022If i could buy this phone new then i will. But sadly its not available in my local market. And... moreHi Will it work in other countries if one imports it? Will it work with the sim card that one will be using in his own country.
Bought mine in 2016 and still using today. I've loved this phone, ideal size, good screen and decent camera plus tough. However, I'm going to have to get a newer phone as it is running 7.1.1 and I've had a message from Sony saying it is no longer supported and won't be updated. I'm now getting messages from my banking apps saying I need Android 8 as a minimum for security reasons. Searched on YouTube etc but there seems to be no way, given limited technical skills, can upgrade to a newer version of Android. What a pity!

If i could buy this phone new then i will. But sadly its not available in my local market. And i dont want to import from other country because the customs officers are from hell. They charge 4 times the device actual price
Got mine in 2016...and im still using it right now "2022" everything still works well...battery only drains quicker as expected, lasts me a full day on moderate use though heavy use goes for 3 to 4 hours...great phone...upgrading to the Xperia 5iii soon.
The Z5 has served me well the past 4 years and is still going.
Now, the battery drains quickly to the point that with the screen on and at reasonable brightness, it will be dead in 2 hours.
The screen is just bright enough at maximum brightness to use in direct sunlight but you can wave your battery goodbye.
The thing gets warm when doing much of anything and in summer can shut down because then it actually gets hot.
Fingerprint and proximity sensors have always worked reliably.
After all this time the os (i guess) started to become unstable. Apps kept stopping and preferences resetting. Something something wipe cache partition, didn't work, needed a factory reset.
Yeahnah twas good value for money in 2017 but as it has become a little slow with the apps of 2021 I don't recommend buying it today.

hellomen, 20 Apr 2021does it last 2 hours by standby or whie using it?Listen soo clearly this master. Samsung will lag 7 times in 5 minutes. Camera issues charging issues and dont event thing to handle 2 years without changing the battery. U said xperia never needed that. Bye bye
Only good thing about the scrap is the camera
Lucky, 12 Dec 2020This is a pretty good phone for the money you pay. The camera, despite not being up to today... moreThis phones takes better daylight photos than any of the recent flagships by Apple and Samsung (detail wise), but in low light it's another story (It's just plain bad). It heats up quite a bit during normal usage but never shuts itself off due to heat (not sure what people meant by "overheating", maybe it's because it gets hot?). Anyways after 5 years the battery is degrading noticeably (there's no Qnovo so it's to be expected). I only get 3-4 hours SOT so it's a backup phone for now...
Been using this phone for 5 years now. Yes it gets hot, yes the camera is nice, yes the battery is shitty, because it's already 5 years old, because of that I can use the phone for max 2 hours now, it's gone through so many charging cycles it's not even funny. If I play games on it, it will die at ~45% and display a low battery indicator upon trying to turn it on again, at this age the battery drains for like 1-2% per minute while playing Clash Royale. Also the proximity sensor on the front is faulty, it needs to have literal sunlight on it so the screen lights up during calls. UI is good.
Yes I've made a stupid purchase when I was young.
I'm thinking of getting Samsung Galaxy A52 or A72 soon.
Sony Xperia z5 compact colors green 3gbrom 32ram
The Sony Z5 doesn't have an Optimizer/Cleaner which unable the user to stop any apps running in the background. Mine just gets hot as if I was gaming and also drains my battery even when I'm not using it.
The battery itself is not good. I am using it right now, its hot and the battery is already 20% depleted from 100.
The File Commander has Ad & keep asking me to get the Premium Version which costs money.... Even though I thought that sorts of thing should've been within the package of buying the phone.
The Versatility, is not good.... You can't change the "navigation button" (that 3 icon sitting at the bottom the the screen). Its also really hard to find the Phone Casing/Cover (at least in my region).
I'm using the Docomo version which has other apps related to it (Docomo) in the phone. But its impossible to use it as its all in Japanese (tho I hope I could read read). There's no way to translate it.... No option to do so.
The Mobile Data Saver is also sucks. I thought by turning the Data Saver on, It will "Restrict" the apps from using Data completely. Turns out, by "Restrict" they meant reduce the usage of Data which doesn't even help.....
Random Systems also crashing randomly which is pissing. Sometimes you have to go through the settings in order to set your mobile service again.
It took a huge chunk of time for the phone to Start if you Restart it or turn it on after you Shut it off.
This is a pretty good phone for the money you pay. The camera, despite not being up to today's standards, is honestly not too bad. Fairly decent autofocus, okay quality, good colors, I will say though that it takes a little while for the camera to take a picture, but still decent at this price point. Overall performance is okay, you can run PUBG and COD Mobile fine but, due to the fact that this phone's exterior is metal and runs on the infamous Snapdragon 810 it can get quite hot in the hands. Personally, I've only experienced the phone overheating while messing with the various camera settings (like 4k and camera mirroring apps, not regular everyday settings). The display is a good size for me personally, although if you are not using the adaptive brightness setting, which alters the darker colors on the screen to adapt to bright outdoor light, the display can be hard to see at times. As for reliability, I will say that I've needed to do a factory reset as the fingerprint scanner stopped working, HOWEVER, this could just be my own fault as during that time I was using shifty cracked/hacked apps. If there is one thing I don't like about this phone it's the battery. After 2 (almost 3) years of using this phone the battery has noticeably degraded, and often times I need it to be in power-saving mode and at the lowest brightness to get through the day. Still, I think this is a good phone despite it's drawbacks.
someone, 19 Nov 2020xperia Z5 getting hot. why?It uses the Snapdragon 810. This chip gets quite hot.
someone, 19 Nov 2020xperia Z5 getting hot. why?Because the snapdragon 810 chipset is itself a faulty one
