Hello friends. I jus bought Sony z5 brand new 2 days ago and sold today due heating issue.phone was heating too much while downloading application or watching YouTube....I went back to LG G4 again .in short words I will say lg G4 is far better than Sony z5 even Camera is very good in lg G4 .i saw some reviews of lg G4 people says it drain battery very fast but not like that,,,,it's all depends how ur using.....if u spend lots of time then charge for 10 mins and. again u will get 50% charging,,,,,so go for lg G4. Good luck

Hiii everyone. I bought a few days ago Sony Z5 and I can tell you that I am very unhappy with the device. The device incredibly heated. Includes standard settings to preserve battery, but when the Wi-Fi on unlocking each time takes 1% of the battery. Software little things missing. Speed ​​dialing, vibration to answer calls, hide applications and so on. I am very unhappy.

SONY wants to earn tons of money but laws prohibited them from earning in your country. Tax is one thing, network carriers Is another thing. Sony is known in asia and Europe but limited in USA. Better convince your government and network carriers, cellular suppliers and distributors.

8knots, 22 Nov 2015He was wrong, nexus is always the first one to get the latest android :)That's funny. He doesn't know nexus is the fastest to get updates.
Tann Hauser, 22 Nov 2015Better later update than bad update Sony is known for the least buggy updates They do not tr... moreWon't agree on that. Initial Lollipop update was a mess in my Z1C. Many bugs,etc. And the initial 5.1.1 build (14.6.a.0.368) was also buggy. Now the current 5.1.1 build is smooth, but aesthetics wise, its a mess. Either they must go stock android like Motorola, or a skinned UI like Sony's KitKat interface. And it looks like that Sony might go stock in marshmallow.

T... moreJust because US doesn't get Sony phones, it doesn't mean that Sony must die. There are many other countries where Sony is a respected phone maker. You Americans don't give a damn about Sony releasing phones, so Sony doesn't give a damn to release phones in US. Probably you'll get the Z5P officially in US when Sony releases Z6 in other countries.

Not sure what the story is regarding US availability or lack there of, but it's possible that the various carriers are more to blame than Sony itself??

It is much nicer in person than the images would suggest, having a simp... moreexactly my thoughts...although i feel speakers of z5 are better than my cousin's z3plus.he is a sony fan-i am not.i never bought a sony phone before i bought z5 as sony camera were below apple in auto mode... but sony really really turned the tables on apple in z5.i recently bought the z5 and it has got such an excellent camera performance in superior auto mode that i couldn't believe myself.way wayyy better than iphone 6splus..particularly excellent is the freaking wide fov of z5 as compared to very narrow of ip6s,again the video stabilization and autofocus are like amazing!ps-i know z5 doesn't have ois-but can anyone explain how can z5 have greatly better stabilization than phones having ois??its an engineering marvel by sony though!
Sony can F OFF!!! This was suppose to be available in the United States in October. NOTHING. The premium was suppose to be available in the United States in November. NOTHING. Verizon scrapped the previous Sony Xperia because this Z5 was suppose to be here in the USA. Nothing. Available in every other country. Sony needs to die and go away. It's a failed corporation.
Nicest phone I've had. It is much nicer in person than the images would suggest, having a simply amazing and practical design. The little raised ridges on the edge help to make it easy to hold. The battery is much better than I expected, with easily two days or more on stand by. The camera is excellent. The fingerprint sensor is perfect as it is positioned exactly where your fingers would grasp it when turning it on. Sony's version of android is also nice and plain, without loads of bloat.
The only negative thing I could find was the external audio. You can't hold your hand on the back when external audio is playing as the back resonates with the sound and if your hand is placed on the back it the audio sounds clipped.
All in all, the best phone on the market today in my opinion.
Hey i am also currently using Z5 too, but its processor seems to be underclocked to prevent too much heat but i don't want it...i really want to unleash the beast power lying inside this phone which can surpass even the fastest phone in antutu benchmark (i have seen it myself but its real power only comes under cold temperature)...is there a way to unlock this beast's power without rooting?? I hope it can be released without unlocking the bootloader...i don't care if i have to install external heatsink to compensate its temperature but i really want it to play games xD
Tann Hauser, 22 Nov 2015"Ha not stuttered" means no lag ;-) How does it feels in the hand? Slippery sharp?

We are SONY users and we share ourexperiences o... moreNo, no and no.
Your forum???? What, you guys have a special badge or uniform or something???
Do you do a special handshake perhaps??? What is it exactly that grants access to your supposed little club???
The thing is, whilst many on here have been naive enough to try to claim they 'know' I have never used a Sony device. The simple fact is I cannot prove on here that I have I indeed used more than one Xperia phone.
I cannot prove that anymore than any of you can prove that you currently have (or have ever used) Sony devices.
So making that blatantly stupid claim about someone you could never possibly know anything about, and trying to imply that you have the right to post here and not me is nothing more than bad behaviour.
So I have as much right to post comments here as Tann houser, heatpipes (I still chuckle when I think of the logic that went into the choosing of that nickname) anu97awesome or anybody else, you can argue with my point of view of course, but stop the petty nonsense of making silly claims that none of us can prove or disprove.
Dual heatpipes, 21 Nov 2015Just now I review all his comments, I suspect Lex is a Ifruit fans, so maybe Lex has the PS3/4... moreI don't love any companies!!!! I've said this repeatedly, but quick on the uptake, you are not.
I just use products, I care about as much for the producing company as they do for me, and they don't care about me, just the money I might be willing to spend on them.
I prefer the PlayStation brand over the Xbox, not because I have any kind of loyalty to Sony, just because I prefer the games on the PS platform. In the event that ever changes, I switch to Xbox or whatever else, no problem.
Same goes for my phone, it's an iPhone 6s right now, mainly because I liked it over the current crop of Android handsets, if I find I start to like the look of a different device, I'll probably start looking to switch to it, Apple as a company do not factor into the equation at all for me.
