Denis XD, 12 Jan 2016Go to a store and check the devices yourself to make up your mind. I can tell you to get a gre... moreOK. .. Phones with me use to drop pleanty of times from my hand... So what do think would sustain drops... Z5 or z5 premium ;)
Well what can I say to start with this phone is rubbish and arguably the worst smart phone I have ever had.
This comment will sound like a ramble but any person who uses a smart phone I hope a'lot of what I am saying will make sense particularly as I comparing this phone against the Samsung galaxy note series
So when I take up grade to a new phone I look for a number things these are
Battery life, Sound/ Speaker reproduction, usability, compatibility and design and equipment.
In short this is rubbish I judge a phone by how long it takes me to drain the battery and then compare it to other phones that I have had and have used in the same fashion.and so far the Sony Z5 has come up short on to aspects not only can i drain the battery from full in 4 hrs but it then takes an absolute age to recharge so much so that I would rather buy an Iphone in future than to have to put up with this.
The volume is very low and the quality reproduction is poor as the speaker inside the phone so when in use you can hear and feel the speaker vibrating against the back of the phone.
The camera takes photos in a to higher format to be attached to an email unless you edit the picture before sending.
The overall easy of coping pasting highlighting links transferring pictures links etc is hard and in some cases not possible at all.
Re booting, Re starting is slow and I feel myself ageing when my phone does this, it is also prone to do this as through use it gets hot and freezes and then restarts alternatively it will just shut the application that I am using down.
This will cover overall functionality. in order for this phone to work on you laptop it needs to install software in order for it to work. Unlike other smart phones it does not work as a hard drive when it is attached
Design and equipment
this has got to be the most stupid aspect of this phone. The earphones provided are substandard and cheap
There is no volume control on the ear phones so in order to change the volume of music that you are listening because the volume keys are positioned at the bottom of the phone you have to take your phone out of your pocket to put the volume up or down
The Jack socket to attache the earphones has been positioned on the wrong side of the as when using the phone in a landscape fashion the volume keys are backwards
These are just some of my views in regards this phone and there are many more. I cant believe that Sony has produced such a rubbish phone as I used to use their Sony Ericsson which were actually very good in some cases and from a merchandising perspective this is the phone that features in the new bond film, bond would have thrown the this phone back at Q and said it it rubbish

here is the proof for my claims where is yours?
other phones like samsung are limited to only 5 minutes of 4K recording LOL
Pranav, 12 Jan 2016Iam confused...should i go for the z5 premium or z5... Also please suggest me a colour :)Go to a store and check the devices yourself to make up your mind. I can tell you to get a green Z5, that's what I'm after anyway.
I had Xperia Z before. I really like the size and design of the Z5. Would be a great phone if the camera and flash are better! I use Pano mode and camera everyday for work.
Sony just has not learned from their mistakes.
Cons since Xperia Z: Poor camera in Pano mode and low light, weak led flash, music volume level is not loud, loud speaker quality and volume is poor, etc. I would buy Sony again if they fix these concerns!!!! No wonder your market is dying. smh
Guys help me. What the different between Z5 and Z5 dual ? It is just a same model except for sim slot ? And Z5 dual only available in asia marketing right ? So what about update that Z5 get does Z5 dual will get it to ?
Revolution of Z, 11 Jan 2016Guys,
In the settings of Display, there is Image Enhancement settings. There is 3 options whi... moreit really depends on what you like, there is no best option in display settings.
Some want a natural, unsaturated image. Others want deep colours that are pleasing to look at. If you like deeper and more saturated colours go for vivid mode, if you want a natural image keep everything off, and if you want something in between pick xreality.
Iam confused...should i go for the z5 premium or z5... Also please suggest me a colour :)
Shailesh , 10 Jan 2016Guys...I bought this phone Z5 dual....it heats up like hell like a geyser...can't even touch t... moreZ5 is Flagship. Have U seen any other companies like Samsung, HTC, Apple sell their flagship phones at 30,000 ? Think before U write something.
Dude, it is not available in my country. that's what we were discussing.
In the settings of Display, there is Image Enhancement settings. There is 3 options which are "Off", "X-Reality for mobile", and "Super-vivid mode".
Which one is better to enhance my display quality?
I noticed that "Super-vivid mode" provide a much richer colour compared to "X-Reality for mobile".
In you opinion, which one will you choose? Can you give me some suggestions? I don't mind that if it will drain my battery life
LIZ-, 10 Jan 2016That simply means, you don't it.....What do mean???
Shailesh , 10 Jan 2016Guys...I bought this phone Z5 dual....it heats up like hell like a geyser...can't even touch t... moreno friend. i have a z5 dual and it's cooler most of the time than my nexus 6p.YOU HAVE NOT DONE THE LATEST SOFTWARE UPDATE.THAT'S WHY YOUR PHONE IS HEATING.DO THE LATEST SOFTWARE UPDATE.The reasons why z5 is priced high is because of its camera,display and audio chip.camera is the best of best.192 autofocus points, phase detection plus contrast autofocus,23mp multiaspect sensor....its the best camera out there.... z5 display beats amoled... so yeah-its a great phone.
I don't have any problems whith my xperia z5, i play hevy games, lots of pictures anda so on.... 0 problems, i use a gel case and a second glass to be protected. Simple the best phone ever.
Mobilemaster, 07 Jan 2016I hear, and see people complaining about the Z5's camera performance too. For example, the edg... morethat's because the camera takes much bigger pictures than every other phone in the world at the moment. Z5 has a much wider field of view, causing a little distortion at the edges.

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.
