I got a few questions about this phone, hope you guys can solve for me:
1)Is this phone worth to buy, coz this phone is quite expensive in my country
2)By going through those comparison websites, I found that alot people said that S6 and Iphone 6S is better than this phone in camera
3)For those Z5 users, did you guys face any problems when using this phone (example: weak battery life, high temperature, etc)
I hope I can get the answers ASAP because I'm going to buy this phone as my christmas present in this Thursday (Planning to upgrade to it from my Xperia Z)
P/S: Sorry for my bad english :D
Anonymous, 14 Dec 2015That salesman must also be an xperia fan in stamina mode-downloaded apps are stopped from using data when screen is off.go to power management -tap on stamina-add fb,whatsapp etc to the list of apps that allow them to use data in battery stamina mode.or simply-turn off stamina totally.
I bought the Z5 recently because i wanted a smartphone with water resistance. I changed the first Z5 because it had a problem on the screen .. some pixels with problems. Now the second one has a good screen but i don't like how the vibration makes a sound.. like something is in the way .. don't know how to explain.Does anyone have problems with the vibration? And i feel that the second one is getting hotter than the first and the battery doesn't last so much. Are they build in the same place ?
I am not able to use mobile datafor whatsapp Facebook and hike. All other default application are working the apps which I download for that my mobile data is not working. Please help.

But went to repair because of battery.. And i had google about this issue and many people face the same problem. That's make me afraid to buy another Xperia. And the fact is, after use Sony smartphone i cannot go to other brand.. Totally love their ui and snappy performance. And it is hard to believe even xperia line from 2013 still get an update which is amazing.. Sony really care about their smartphone. After do some research this phone really make me crazy.. The specification is superb. A miles better than S6 in many aspect. And as you know Xperia Line is multitas-KING.. Thanks for replying mate.

the guys who are saying z5 heats are absolutely pure liars having some hidden agenda of their own.i have been using samsung phones since many years and tolerated the laggy touch wiz of sammy because i just went to a shop every year and the salesman would run to me and tell me-here is the best smartphone of this year...a Samsung phone he would show...and i would buy...THIS YEAR SOMETHING CHANGED...i was on a official trip with 3 of my colleagues..i saw a z5 for the first time...while i was grappling with 1 email and struggled to load attachments due to LAGGY S6...MY FRIEND WAS JUST WHIZZING WITH HIS Z5.SO FAST IT WAS.WENT TO THE SHOP.AGAIN THAT salesman ran towards me-sir,here is the best phone of year-s6edge plus...i just told him-u are a cold liar,aren't you...i went to the sony Xperia gallery...picked up a z5 set and compared with my s6...I FOUND IT BETTER IN EVERY WAY.THE CAMERA PARTICULARLY BLOWS AWAY S6.bought a z5-loving it.NO HEATING AT ALL,LONG BATTERY,AWESOME CAMERA,SO STYLISH...SONY ALL THE WAY!

naitisrc, 10 Dec 2015Hi guys! I have a question, how long does your battery last? Mine was like only 21hours with m... moreActivate battery stamina mode to extend it to about 40 h . Apps like facebook messaneger use mobile data while phone is locked too much that's why it goes down quickly. If I use super stamina mode I can get my xperia z5 to work up to 60 h with moderate use. Check the battery useage graph as well to see when does it drain the battery the most.
I simply fail to understand why people are complaining so much about the overhearing issue, yesterday I took over 220 pics with my Z5 in an open zoo in Bangkok & the phone didn't overheat at all yup it got a bit hot but that's normal with any smartphone also the battery was really great even after taking over 200 pics of went down from 100%-30% which is remarkable.
