The Sony z5 is its own heat machine. It overheats for no reason and shuts down I don't play games on it and the most it does is become a hotspot (ironic) My biggest gripe with my brand new z5 is that notifications only occur once When you're receiving txts (sms) it'll give one notification only All other messages come in without notification and that means when you're waiting for a txt you have to keep looking at the phone.
The most annoying thing about it is that it keeps turning on in my pocket (other z5 owners report the same thing to me) Once it even dialled emergency (and they called me back to see if i was ok!) It just keeps turning on and I've even bought a cover for it.
Super annoying is the volume rocker placement Right near the bottom right-hand side. Impossible to use unless you have tiny hands Maybe that's the market it was designed for, who knows but it's far too low for your average Joe.
One more gripe is the fact the volume rocker and power button is placed is exactly where the Smart Imaging Stand grabs onto the phone. You can turn it upside down and that helps but it still isn't an ideal situation.
Overall not a lot of quality thought has gone into the design of z5 and yet ease of use should really be priority number one.
That said, the camera is great and the screen is to die for.

Very poor audio quality from earphones. I tried several high end headphones and all the audio settings. The eq is a joke. It has no bass and even at full volume has no punch. The keyboard gives me trouble as well. I switched from galaxy note 3 and I'm less than impressed with Sony.
i bought Sony z5 in white color. after 2 weeks it stopped to save photo in sd card.if i take sd card out it saves in phone memory but again i insert sd card phone does not save photo in sd card.i changed my sd card but problem still there.i went to Bell store from where i bought this phone .Store owner told me that have to wait atleast 4 weeks to repair it.He has to send it to USA for repair because there is not a single Sony store in Canada.second phone get hot very easily .so be very careful Canadian...
I want to buy a new phone which will have a good photo quality and is not slow, i mean it doesn't stops suddenly or works slowly, such as many Samsungs and other android phones do. Please tell me is the Xperia Z5 the phone which I am looking for?
Best mobile after a long..... 3days back I got a camera update camera features were changed and some disturbance in camera.... After update recording was incresed but some times auto jump in video.... it should have a new update..... superb mobile
I got this phone for almost a month now, seems to me it works pretty good though it gets pretty hot sometimes, but all the apps run well
AnonD-171823, 19 Dec 2015Can anyone explain to me what is ISO and HDR?
The higher the value of ISO, the better or the ... morein low light high iso increases pic brightness but puts noise...leave it to auto mode...iso adjustments are for pro photographers!and since z5 has the highest iso in the world of smartphone cameras-it can produce incredibly beautiful low light photos in the hands of an able person
....hdr is high dynamic range..PS-JUST MOVED FROM SAMSUNG S6 TO Z5. MUST SAY CAMERA OF Z5 IS MUCH BETTER.PARTICULARLY AUTIFOCUS,DYNAMIC RANGE, AND VERY WIDE FOV.COMPLETELY SATISFIED WITH Z5.z5 has double the battery back up than s6...and with the excellent camera,i am really really reallyyyy happy i bought z5 instead of note 5.i will RECOMMEND THIS DUAL SIM 4G Z5 AS THE BEST FLAGSHIP IN INDIA.
May I know which phone you own it previously?
To newer please use stamina mode, it works very well.
Can anyone explain to me what is ISO and HDR?
The higher the value of ISO, the better or the lower the better?
Plus I noticed that in Manual Mode, when I switch my resolution to 20MP, the SCN setting is disabled, why?
