Only recently I noticed for ex, that CleanMaster was messing my wifi and 3g data module activation. Deleted it...workinf like a charm now.
I hope sony will re implement the design concept of Z1 compact. It feels so classy sleek and undoubtedly sturdy. Z3 and Z5 compact are all very cheap looking while Z3c still had some punch in most of its way but Z5c is very ugly that it looks like a hand molded clay for me when looked at its side totally no contrasting accents mostly due to its bumped thickness. And if its still possible to cram 2 sims in the compact versions I will definitely go.
My Xperia Z5 (while the compact had already known similar issues) has this unusual behavior when it is connected to the charger. The finger print scanner becomes unresponsive prompting to unlock it by the backup codes. The most painful is, the touch will also become messy that a single touch will register 3 only the choice is to retry and retry. During this situations the pull down menu will be pulled but retracts back immediately when you lift your finger away from your touch. I had also some experience one time that the camera shutter both screen and button was become inoperable at all it doesn't click at all. Also some instance occur when i cannot slide the call receive slider i just do reject the call by pressing the power key. If anybody had this horrific experiences with this finely tuned piece of whatever, feel free to make this topic trails.
Dude, it is not available in my country. that's what we were discussing.
Guys...I bought this phone Z5 dual....it heats up like hell like a geyser...can't even touch the heated portion...and it heats up very fast....Battery is not at par like it has been reviewed by someone.
Although the look is elegant but it's very slippery. It is filled with useless apps for which SONY has charging their loyal customers so much.
On my opinion...this phone should not cost more than 30,000....charging 45000 to 48000 is tooooooo much.
Paying so much of money for a SONY geyser is not worth it.
phone is good but not worth the price.
rzey07, 03 Jan 2016Battery only 2900 mah? How much more do you want? There's everything in this world to fulfill everyone's need, not everyones greed like yours...

Jeroy, 03 Jan 2016Z5 battery life sucks! Same with iphones! . Ive wasted my monry for these craps! . Samsung is ... moreZ5 battery life is at least 50-60% better than the Galaxy S6 I had before. I had to charge my S6 by mid afternoon but my Z5 will go on till midnight, with the same usage.
Jag, 08 Jan 2016Is it worth it to upgrade my xperia z3 to this. especially the battery life?No. Z3 is better. Search in YouTube (Z3 vs Z5) and see Z3 works much smooth, also multitasking is faster, battery life is longer, everything... But camera is a bit better in Z5... I don't upgrade. I'm extremely satisfied.
i upgraded from z3-z5 has the best camera on the planet....way way better than s6,iphonev6,z3,6p...si yeah...if you want an excellent camera-you must buy a z5.again fingerprint sensor is an advantage over z3.display of z5 gives amoled a run for its money....but battery life is NOT BETTER THAN Z3 ALTHOUGH Z5 EASILY LASTS LONGER THAN 2550MAH ONLY S6 AND IPHONES.....
The Z5 is a good phone in many ways....but not a great phone in all ways. SONY still needs to do some work to improve the camera and overall build quality in the upcoming Z6. The camera needs to be faster and brighter in the Z6. And the device needs to be more durable. And it needs OIS to be truly competitive. There's more to a camera than pixels. And the build quality needs more metal and a lot less plastic making the entire device much more durable.
Also, SONY needs to stop ignoring and start recognizing the US market. The US is the biggest, most important, and most affluent marketplace on the planet, yet SONY fails repeatedly to recognize this fact and has not released the Z5 in the US. Instead, SONY expects its US customers to buy their $800+ phones from 3rd party re-sellers like eBay or Amazon with no warranty whatsoever. Who would do that? What are you thinking SONY? Furthermore, you need to make your warranty valid globally, not just in the country or location of purchase. Your customer support is abysmal. I don't own anything Apple makes, but Apple is great with customer service. Apple will recognize their warranty on any Apple device anywhere in the world, no matter where you bought it. Apple will provide help, answer questions, give advice, and even repair any Apple device at any Apple location in the world. Take notice of this very very important fact SONY.
SONY, you need to advertise your products everywhere and price your phones to sell. Your phones are just simply too expensive for an also-ran device. Lower the price to something more realistic and reasonable if you really want to sell your phones.
Finally, SONY, focus on the getting the basics right and forget about all the worthless tricks and gimmicks you incorporate in your phones that add nothing of value for the end-user of the product. For example, you can skip 4K, pressure sensitive touch screens, dinosaurs in the pictures, and Playstation remote feature, which are, frankly, unnecessary and worthless. Give us a better camera, a better warranty, better global support, and more places to go where we can actually see, touch, ask questions, and purchase your phones. At least, make your phones available on your own US website, unlocked.
What's that you say, SONY? You say you are losing a million dollars a day in your smartphone division? It's not hard to understand why.
If you do these things and get it right, you may have a chance to remain in the race, otherwise, it's almost the end of the line for SONY smartphones. I hope the Z6 is a really great phone because "good enough" is no longer good enough to compete in this highly competitive arena. Good luck SONY!
Is it worth it to upgrade my xperia z3 to this. especially the battery life?
