AnonD-467625, 21 Nov 2015So z5 is a bad phone? Just askingNot at all, nobody else is doing water resistant mainstream devices and the battery life is on average better than its direct rivals, but neither is it superior in all aspects to the competition as the biased commenters on here would have you believe, and like most other devices neither is it completely trouble free.
That's why I said read as many reviews as possible, watch as many YouTube reviews as possible. Get as much information as to the pros and cons as possible before making up your own mind. When you do make up your mind, do so by weighing those pros and cons against your own needs.
And don't listen to the commenters on here, they have already made their choice (some even deny themselves that choice, as they will only consider Sony devices) and would have you make the same choice. And a negative review or observation regarding an Xperia device does not mean the reviewer is getting paid to say it. But even if one or two of the are (which I doubt really), by looking at as many sources as possible you can guarantee your going to get an impartial opinion overall.
Not sure how much fairer I can be in what little advice I have just given you, but as I haven't uttered the following lines:
'Sony is best'
'I love Sony'
Z5 is best at everything and always will be'
Just watch what the response to this comment will be.
AnonD-467625, 21 Nov 2015So z5 is a bad phone? Just askingDon't believe reviews. Reviewers themselves are normal customers, and hence have their own favourite brands. Just go check the phone in a store and make your mind.
[deleted post]I'm sure that in your paranoid little mind you believe you do., not much that's ever going to change that, I feel sorry for you.
In the real world however it could just be that, the moderators don't think I have been unfairly bashing anything.
[deleted post]Name calling? Ok there we go..
If he is young, don't expect reason. He will name call you and whatever, youngs just need patience to get along. Coming from someone who had a 16 year old bf says something.
And no I'm not old as you guys call me, I'm 22.
My rate for Z5 would be an 8/10. It's really good but the disappointing volume and the fact that it gets warm easily annoyed me. I hope it's the unit they have at the store, it's constantly connected to a charging port so I hope that's the reason it gets warm easily, too warm. The volume though.. disappointing. Z3 next to it is a lot louder, and my W995 is a beast of loudness is comparison, not only to Zs but to all of smartphones.
The dual heat pipes are NOT exclusive to Z5 Premium only. It's present in the Z5 also. And this heat pipe is to control the heat of the 810. 810 is a problematic SoC. Manufacturers like Sony and Microsoft implemented this method to control the heat issues of 810.

anu97awesome, 21 Nov 2015No you are wrong, those are for ensuring the longevity of 4k recording http://www.xperiablog.net/2015/09/04/xperia-z5-using-dual-heat-pipes-to-control-thermal-performance/ scroll down and see the teardown of Z5. Z5P and Z5 have the same heat pipes. Plus why would Z5P need a heat pipe specially, when it runs at 1080p most of the time?
I've had the Z5 for about a month now, and have no regrets upgrading from the S6. Man I love the feel and looks of this phone.
Hi guys ... samsung s6+ plus, apple i6 or sony z5??
I'm in South Africa - apple too expensive to maintain here, samsung has cool features on photos and somehow pics on phone looks better (but samsung has a highe display resolution) then there's the z5 ... dont know much about sony, gf has one and loves it apart from heating issues

However the higher resolution does push the 810 harder, so indirectly I guess it is a factor.
The Z3+ only had one heatpipe, which was why it had the issues it did. The Z5C either also only has one or none (not sure which) but then as its only pushing 720p worth of pixels, the 810 has an easier time.

AnonD-257122, 20 Nov 2015To be honest, I'm tempted towards Z5 but my 11 months old Z3 is being very loyal to me.I missed my Z3 after it fell down and broke... But the z5 is fast, very fast Trevor... Just go for it... drrrm1975@Gmail.com
