Gino76, 01 May 2017But my other question is will charging it "optimise" the battery and help prolong battery life... moreWhat he mean is charging from over 5% to under 95% is better because when u take a full charge u will stress the battery and become hot and results in damaging the battery
Ferry, 11 May 2017Is there a chance for Sony to fix the overheating problem?,, beside that it's a great smartphone No. Because it is based on the cooling of the heatpipes inside the phone. Update will not help it. Update will only help in some app improvements and software only, not the internals.
I have both x and Z5 so I wanted to clarify some things 1 both x and z5 get warm in normal usage but doesn't overheat except you use camera or playing heavy games though Z5 can toast your fingers over time 2 the difference between x and Z5 is 1: 4k 2: ip68 actually 4k is a useless thing and most of the people don't use it normally 3 z5 is made of glass but x is aluminum so it can't be cracked x selfie camera is much better than Z5 both are smooth my recommendation is x because of 1 aluminum body 2 better selfie and I think ip68 don't come in handy very often I never had a problem with rain or humidity using x. And something else battery life is slightly less than average
Angel jannifer, 12 May 2017How is the front camera Quality? I mean selfys are great or not..or should I go For X?Selfie camera is decent and nothing near great x selfie camera is really good but not great either
Sauru, 15 May 2017I also have same question I bought the z5 because i am not into the x series.
SKorap, 05 May 2017Should I buy X, X Compact or Z5? I also have same question

Gino76, 03 May 2017So a screen on time of 4-5 hours is "OK"? Having a battery of 100% from 6pm at below 10% by 7p... more5 hours? I get 4 tops. So yeah you are good to go, better that good actually.
greenify isn't a battery saver at the core, it's a task killer. It also has several options to prolong battery life like aggressive doze. You do need to check it out.

Heard about Greenify long time ago. But I heard these battery saving apps actually doesn't help in saving battery life and it only helps in an incremental way.

Just keep in mind that it's battery life is about ok. Also download greenify

It has been 3 days and it has been the same old issue. Before 7pm my Z5 battery life died :(

Dont let the battery dry out completely. Yes you can charge it during the day and try to keep it in under 95% and over 5%. Don't let it go all the way up to 100%. So yeah you can charge it. Regular charges are better than one full charge for the battery.
DenisXD, 30 Apr 20171st of, congratulations. the frosted glass is certainly a nice touch but as i already said, ge... moreI can concur that the headset does appear after getting wet but so far hasnt't been repeated.
I could not find the NFC notifications settings so I can stop this "NFC Storage" message bug. Where would I find it?
The 2-second processing of photo (+ shutter) is very slow for 2017 standards and vs an iPhone 6 or Galaxy S7 for that matter. Even by increasing the animations under Developer Options didn't helped at all. Any more suggestions?
As I'm typing this it's past 9pm where I live and (compared to yesterday) I did slightly less on my phone so maybe that's why it lasted this long compared to 6pm yesterday. it's down 3% so it may die down anytime.
As it has been 48 hours I still find the battery to be poor. Just read the website's re-review post-MM update and the battery life was actually cut in half which isn't confidence building. So, I need to ask: can I charge the battery halfway through the day so I can have enough juice till the evening say a lot later than 9pm?
Gino76, 29 Apr 2017It has been 24 hours now since i decided to buy a Z5. Here are my thoughts on the phone.
The ... more1st of, congratulations. the frosted glass is certainly a nice touch but as i already said, get a luxurious case imo. it's speakers are alright yeah, although nowhere near as loud as my old sony ericsson w995 but they are passable.
The updates yeah, sony is quick with em and the fingerprint is quite fast after nougat update.
2nd, your bads. The headset message doesn't appear to me, although i get the headset icon when water gets in there. Just blow in it and it will be fine. You are lucky though, at marshmallow i had an alert that it was charging while underwater, it does funny things underwater.
nfc storage? never had that message. Maybe that's because i haven't use nfc so far i dunno, but check notifications and alerts for everything.
The camera never does this to me and I just checked it. It goes with the orientation im holding it.
The processing is quite fast for me really. it takes about 2 seconds at most even when i take 23mp photos, with the exception of hdr of course.
battery life is just ok to me. I keep it around 40-90% all the time though, and im careful when im far from home outside with what i do. I always keep in mind that. but snapdragon 810 is to blame here, it is a powerhungry one and yeah i get you. But try what i do, don't push the processor when you don't need to.
draining the battery to 0% and charging it to 100% is generally not good, although processors nowadays keep the batteries away from overcharging. nevertheless, always keep it around 5 to 95% for the battery to stay in good condition for longer, and once a month drain it to 0% and then charge it to 100% for battery calibration. remember the 5 to 95% rule and you'll be fine, with any phone on that matter.
Any more questions mate?
It has been 24 hours now since i decided to buy a Z5. Here are my thoughts on the phone.
Frosted glass body is quite slippery for the hand. Not uncomfortable though.
Speakers are slightly if not equally as loud as my galaxy S5 Neo albeit being rear facing.
Had 3 updates immediately after setup from MM to Nougat 7.0 and March 2017 security update.
Quick fingerprint scanner
The Bad (bugs & issues):
"Headset plugged in" message after getting wet from the shower & battery life was below 10% (only happened once so far)
"NFC storage" message keep appearing almost all the time especially after fiddling with the Settings (Apps & Notifications)
Opening the camera using the multitasking pane makes the screen go landscape
The bootup and camera processing is still slow for its specs/hardware - same old issues since the Z1.
Battery life. Was 100% at 6am, below 10% by 1800. This after watching a few Youtube videos, checking on the news, social network apps (not even Facebook), no heavy streaming or downloading. I am unable to find the Screen On time info but after doing all the battery saving tips under the sun (apart from rooting) I find the numbers quite dissapointing which also makes it appear the software seem poorly optimised.
Which leads me to more questions:
Does draining the battery down to zero and charging it overnight damages the life of the battery?
Does charging the battery routinely everyday will eventually sense the device usage and in turn improve & lenghten the life?
