Every phone has downsides! Yeah it's the most featured flagship yeah, yes it has a great camera but man, I hate the low volume of it's speakers. I will have to root it to make it louder.
Anonymous, 14 Jan 2016Z5 US please!Sony Xperia Z5, Z5 Compact coming to the US on February 7
From GSMARENA NRWS
I have a Note 4 (2k) and a Xperia z5. I like the Xperia more. The design is classy and slick. The phone is fast, The screen is great. No need to ask for 4k because my xperia is as good or somethimes better than the Note 4!!! I have no heating problems with the high-powered Qualcomm Snapdragon 810.
There is no doubt. The z5 is one of the best on the market. I'm really satisfied that I bought this beautiful, and close to perfect, phone. Do yourself a favour and get it.
I would like to buy this if the price could get a little lower.... 2.8k!!! ==
Everyone who hates Sony - They suck... Sony is amazing... Samsung sucks because of laggy touchwiz, no micro SD card, low quality... Samsung works on higher benchmark but benchmark is different from real life experience... iPhones are crap, jailed system, few features, worst battery life... I recommend to buy Sony. Z series are the best... Mine is Z3...
The other reviews on the other sites praises the camera of Z5. But in this site......... Well.... You know what I mean. And if you watch videos on YouTube. The z5's camera is the best! Im not a fan of sony nor any phone... But that is how i see it... This is just my opinion.... Respect....

I won't call you a fanboy or whatever, but if you want to be taken seriously be independent!

But it still needs to be taken seriously, and people should careful with expensive gadgets no matter. If you are planning to get Z5 be cautious, it's not a toy.

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
