Hi guys. I talk based on my experience with my phone. I have a Xperia s(Sonys' First generation phone). What I found is that the Sony is not updating its android software after first or second year, which makes the phone useless. The second issue I have faced is the poor quality of camera. It is notable that the touch screen keyboard is not really responsive comparing to Apple and Samsung. I wrote it because I just wanted to share my experience with you about my phone.
AnonD-480845, 26 Dec 2015good morning sava83 where is your z1 now? to you want to sell it?It's not for sale, cause I left it to my brother.
I saw this phone on a store and I totally love how the phone looks and it's really comfortable to hold in the hand. The size is just perfect for my hands and I love how the frosted glass feels too. Though the compact feels better, the compact also is a lot thicker and surprisingly a lot heavier than the regular z5. I compared it with the s6 edge and s6 edge plus and I personally with no doubt, prefer the z5. TRY IT PEOPLE AND YOU'LL LOVE IT.NOT TRYING TO SAY THAT IT IS PERFECT BUT YOU'LL DEFINITELY LOVE IT.GO SONY!
Meanwhile Sony developed new battery tech with 40% more capacity, and new ips lcd tech with sec gen pixel touch screen.
Alongside being the most innovative build, camera and sound tech developer.
No copying, only innovating.
Z6 will be a blast :-)
Sony Xperia Z5 VS Galaxy S6 Edge - Speed & Camera Test!
Search this on youtube & watch the video. It is a very good & unbiased comparison.
The phone is really great. Purchased it recently to replace my Z1. The camera is really great, I completely disagree with the review with regards to camera performance. In low light it does produce more noise on auto mode, but if you use manual mode you can clear the noise levels by using lower ISO levels. I guess the guy doing the review is not really familiar with cameras' settings :). Anyway, the phone is really good, maybe the S6 edge is better in turns of design, but I really prefer Sony's UI take on Android (really clean and sleek), which I feel is kind of underrated.
Wow, today I took some photos in low light which turned out to be really good, extremely happy with the camera, thanks Sony.
AnonD-23617, 24 Dec 2015hello guys! I'm using this phone for a month now and recently I updated the phone to its lates... more1.here in india-all phones are sold by firms totally unlocked..so here i receive updates from sony very frequently.you see,i had a samsung s4 before n was really pissed with slow updates that i moved to m4aqua-and saw frequent updates.and so i tilted towards z5.so,i think the slow updates in canada are surely a telecom carrier problem.they have to approve software by sony and carriers have to seed it.here in india -we get direct updates.
2.i always make a point to factory reset all my phones after a major update.i did it on samsung s4,sony m4 and sony z5.factory resetting after a update removes old operating system registry and data and the new os version runs smoother.regarding that drain from 98 to 68 in 11 hours-its normal following a software update when the cpu is running higher than normal speed to adapt to the new os.my advice -stay cool! it is a singular incident that will never happen!i would recommend you to reset it once if possible-it will be very good!
3.for the style cover app, you have to disable it by the following steps-settings-apps-all apps-style cover-disable it.
4.do a factory reset.the disappearing widgets are surely the old operating system left over files interfering with the new os codes!
hope i helped you!
Ive had my Z5 for only 8 weeks now and always keep it in my front jean/trouser pocket today ive found the Z5 has bent along one side and ive never dropped it.
Its by the power button where its bent..
Im planning to head back to carphone warehouse today to demand a replacement as surely this is a faulty unit or a design fault by sony..
Upto know ive loved the z5 as the camera is top draw and pisses my friends iphone 6 at night and in low light though the video quality is poor compared to iphone 6.
Got it just 2 days back from eBay.thank u ebay & bluedart for quick delivery.excellent display. Excellent camera. Image quality outstanding in day light.battery backup very good.phone gets Little bit warm but dats ok.best phone so far. Sony good job.
hello guys! I'm using this phone for a month now and recently I updated the phone to its latest firmware 32.0.A.6.200 and now I'm facing a few problems. the first one is the battery. A while ago, before I went to work the phone is 98 percent, I didn't used the phone for like eleven hours and after that, the battery went down to 62 percent without using it, pretty weird eh? the second one is the style cover. I have this sony style cover SCR42 and it always there on my running apps so I decided to deactivate it. but after the update even though I deactivate it, it is till there on my running apps and I don't know what to do now, I'm not using the cover anymore. and the last one is the clock widget and the google search bar. every time I turn off or restart my phone, the clock and the google search on my home screen disappear. I live in Canada and to be honest, Sony really don't put focus in here when in comes to update, there's an update but it is really rare and most of the times, it is late, probably because of the carrier. I love the phone so much, like it is nearly perfect but I'm a bit frustrated because I can't accept the fact that this is happening to my phone right now so if there is someone out there that can help me what to do or something, that'll be much appreciated. thank you.
I have had the Z5 for 6 weeks now and find that as a phone it works great, the only down sides I have found with it is, some pictures can be over sharpened sometimes to the point of ruining the picture, others are absolutely fantastic. The video is great but if you use it on 4k on a hot day it overheats very quickly and shuts off. The battery lasts well in basic phone mode. but when using video or phone a lot it runs down very quickly, Surprisingly recently in an area with no cell signal I found that my photos were not geotagged. I thought the gps function would do that.
Overall pleased with the phone , the camera is a bit of a let down though.
