Good design, top spec's. In default usage maner (internet surfing, calls, youtube) - no overheat problem. Quality of camera very good, pics and videos looks nice.

Did I ever tell the Z5 having worse camera than S6? I only told in some areas that S6 has the edge over Z5, as shown in gsma tests. So just because one person has a different opinion, you call him a troll? So immature you are. P.S can you read my previous comments and tell if you still think I'm a Crapsung agent?
Anonymous, 30 Oct 2015And everyone who owns a z5 please update to the latest software update that came today!THE CAM... moreI was one of the few to get this phone on Oct 27 and it's a beauty. Superb quick and free of any lag what so ever. Unlike "lag sung" After the update camera is very good. No undue heat. Though it cannot be compared to a DSLR, the camera is the best. Particularly on the auto mode.
rahulps111, 31 Oct 2015I have both z5 and s6.... i must say s6's camera is far better than z5's They are using a Sony Exmor sensor inside. Not their own Samsung sensors. So now you know...
from digitalspy.uk- Sony Xperia Z5 Camera: The best smartphone snapper in town
One area that needs no improvement is the phone's camera. This 1/2.3-inch 23-megapixel sensor and 24mm wide-angle lens are the Z5's showpiece feature. Rendering dedicated compact cameras truly obsolete, the Sony Xperia Z5's camera is capable of capturing shots of unrivalled quality. It brings a vibrancy and sense of depth to colours and a subtly to the gradient of blacks it combines to form deep, engaging shots.
It excels where most smartphone cameras come unstuck, too - low light photography. Effortlessly balancing areas of light and shade. The phone's focussing is quick and on point - even when the lights have gone down. After dark shots feature minimal noise and light pollution is minimised. Its macro skills are hard to fault too, with the dedicated, physical shutter button and easily tweaked camera controls making capturing the perfect shot a breeze.
There's a secondary 5.1-megapixel camera that sits up front too. This isn't on the same level as its primary sibling, but is more than capable of taking a decent selfie, even in areas of reduced lighting - an area where many of its rivals struggle.
Overall, however, the camera is the Z5's crowning glory and party piece. It's the new pinnacle of smartphone photography.
ZergusMaximus, 31 Oct 2015I guess you haven't heard from the G4.oh g4 gives you only manual controls but photo quality is not as good as z5.z5 has best auto mode that always works to give you awesome photos.besides every aspect of a photograph is way better on z5-details,dynamic range,field of view -everything.also z5 is waterproof -take anywhere on any picnic in rain.isn't it?
ZergusMaximus, 31 Oct 2015I guess you haven't heard from the G4.Please Stop your Low grade promotions on Z5 Beast posts.
There are multiple fields where a DSLR has aces over a smartphone. However in terms of picture quality and pixel-count, it surrenders to a smartphone. z5 and z5 premium from Sony are the simple examples of the fact.
Anonymous, 31 Oct 2015Z5 really doesn't blow away the S6 camera http://m.gsmarena.com/iphone_6s_galaxy_s6_xperia_z5-... moreoh you are a real samsung fanboy.here to troll z5.let me get your facts correct -
1.z5 has best camera-dxomark.in blind camera test of gsmarena, z5 was winner.
2.z5 camera was tested before yesterday's system update.so,give a link that tests z5 after yesterday's update.your link is outdated as z5 firmware has changed mister.
3.even before yesterday's update dxomark told z5 is best camera.so aftee update its way way better and blows away any phone. s6 is not even in competition since yesterday.
ps-i own a z5.and i have compared with my friend's s6.and mr samsung agent-buy a z5 before posting any comment.
and if you so need a comparison-z5 camera is ahead by miles from any othee phone.bye,troll.

Overall, Z5 has a better camera
z5 has the best camera on earth.period.any samsung fanboy who begs to differ are really mindwashed guys.the level of difference in quality of photos between z5 and s6 is really phenomenal. z5 really blows s6 away.period.and another fact for photography enthusiasts -z5 has max possible 232gb for storage with sd card for recording all videos-filled up sd card with 4k videos -just put another sd card.s6 has no sd card.isn't it??

And no where it was said thay the camera improved soo much.
First you told me that the Z5 can take DSLR quality pictures. Now you are saying that you didn't say that.

My phone was getting heated whire watching you tube videos. U try that. N if u compare cameras of s6 edge n z5, z5 stands nowhere near to s6 camera. I hv both, n believe me 23mp of z5 is only on paper specification.
Anonymous, 31 Oct 2015DxOmark rated the Z5 as number one in smartphone cameras, not DSLRs. Also, Z5 is just one poin... moreu didn't understand my comment -you should not take everything literally -that is what i meant.i told in the last line that you are immature because you take everything literally.so,here final comments on z5 and please don't take literally-
1.z5 scored 1 point better than s6 sure.but s6 had received many updates by then.so s6 camera is not going to improve further.but z5 won even without updates. and i am sure after yesterday's updates, z5 will beat s6 by 4 or 5 points.
2.i never said z5 is dslr.what i meant was if some other guy excited by z5 excellent photos tells-like dslr-you shouldn't taje that literally. so i gave the bright guy in class example."if a guy is very bright in class,you don't take that guy at night to light your way like torch"same analogy-"if that guy told z5 is like dslr"-he meant to say-photos from z5 are very excellent.not that he really meant a dslr.
3.again,after update night time shots are so much detailed.why don't u update it man.night time shots though now best on any smartphone can't rival at all any dslr.
