Jass, 29 Oct 2015After 2 days of use, I would say that its best in class, the most important point is its dual ... moremay be I am being rude-but I am sure you are lying.that's because I just bought a z5 and recorded 4k video for 10 minutes and played it-and the z5 DID NOT OVERHEAT...JUST A LITTLE WARM THAT'S IT.(Z5C RECORD 4K FOR 4O MINUTES,Z5 FOR MORE THAN 30 MINUTES -I COULDN'T DO IT AS MY SPACE RAN OUT). in fact my wife's s6 records 4k for 5 minutes before becoming hot and warning me not to record etc.so that should serve as a perfect comparison to all.my experience -z5 is the coolest phone now.btw-mu wife is so enamored by the frosted glass back and great camera of z5 that she is seriously considering selling her 3 month old s6.
After 2 days of use, I would say that its best in class, the most important point is its dual sim phone with high end features..the only negative point is that it heats like hell the moment u watch videos..
Chamila T, 28 Oct 2015Fear of Overheating...???????? check this out... http://www.androidcentral.com/does-sony-xper... moresony has really nailed it-sony really unleashed the real beast in snapdragon 810-no heating at all...thanx for the link-now i am on my way to get my long awaited z5!hooyah!
ankush , 29 Oct 2015as it has 2900 mah battery so poor performance of battery ,u have to carry separate batty bank... moreWrong, battery capacity means nothing. How can you explain the Moto X Play with 3630mAh of battery can only get similar endurance with the Xperia Z3 that requires more power due to its specs but with only 3100mAh? Quantity is not always the best solution, you need to put balance between it and quality to achieve near perfect result.
as it has 2900 mah battery so poor performance of battery ,u have to carry separate batty bank with it if traveling.
Avadis, 28 Oct 2015Is it true that rooting sony phones are difficult? I generally am Samsung fan, but lately as ... moreI am switching to z5 from Samsung s4 after a lot of research. and I will share what I learnt-
1.Z5 is presently the best Android on market-i would say its better than iPhone 6s plus.
2.it has SD card support.
3.I came to know it has the best camera EVER.DXOMARK -INDUSTRY STANDARD CAMERA TESTERS SAID THIS.from what I researched-z5 camera already beats all cameras EVEN WITHOUT ANY FIRMWARE UPDATES(Z5 HAS RECEIVED NO UPDATES TO CAMERA SOFTWARE-IT WAS RELEASED VERY RECENTLY). S6 HAS RECEIVED SO MANY CAMERA UPDATES -SO S6 CAMERA IS NOT GOING TO IMPROVE ANY FURTHER.***if z5 camera without any updates has beaten s6 camera(with so many camera updates)-the z5 is going to be awesome once time passes and ut receives updates.
4.Sony is very liberal in updating flagship phones.Xperia z-2.5 years old received 5.1.1.Samsung doesn't CARE ABOUT ANY POST SALES SOFTWARE SUPPORT.LOOK AT S3,S4 UPDATES.
5.ITS EASY TO ROOT SONY PHONES NOW.Sony developer world releases aosp codes for every phone immediately so custom roms are very abundant. bootloader is unlocked too now with all Sony phones.
6.HIGH RES AUDIO OF SONY REALLY REALLY IS THE BEST SOUND YOU WILL HEAR FROM ANY PHONE ON EARTH
7.its waterproof too.
Sony Xperia series the best phones ever. But there are 2 problems only. video calling and virtual buttons.
very preety phone with awesome features... specification overall 2 gud ..
Aslan, 28 Oct 2015z5 is very good phone but note5 better than z5 .
I'm so sorry i love z5 but note5 is winner :( note 5is just a boring phone with busy, old-fashioned stick so called stylus
Of course note5 lacks impressive features like stereo speaker: very fast focus: waterproof: independent design and so on
That's why Z5 is a clear winner all the ways
Feel free with unique Z5
Avadis, 28 Oct 2015Is it true that rooting sony phones are difficult? I generally am Samsung fan, but lately as ... moreDifficult.. no. But takes time before rooting solution comes at hand. Still have my Z3 and it took a long time before Root was avaliable. Quite easy to root actually.

miro, 28 Oct 2015Anyone has the Z5 in his hands right now? Wanna know if it's truly up to their expectations be... morewhy not try it out in a store. I tried it at a sony store and was satisfied just that I was given the Demo version gold color and it was not looking good. I'm thinking may be because it's demo but if the complete version looks anything like that, then am getting the Green one.
As far as I know, there's no white color in India except online.
Jim, 28 Oct 2015You are right guy. beside of that battery life, Gsmarena also tell that Samsung quality sound ... moreDon't worry about Z5's loudness. In reality it's louder than S6 but it was muffled for the waterproofing thus reducing overall loudness. Come on guys, that's not even an argument, Sony beats all others when it comes to entertainment.
So keep calm and love Sony.
Anonymous, 24 Oct 2015According to GSM arena reviews
Z5 battery 73 hours
samsung s673 hours
iphone 6s 62 hours
W... moreYou are right guy. beside of that battery life, Gsmarena also tell that Samsung quality sound is better than Sony just because S6 sound is louder than Z5. For every body pls feel the sound sensation from stereo speaker of Z5 with Force front surround technology. Z5 beat S6! Also pls hear your music with Head set stereo, feel the deep of bass! Z5 beat S6.
Why Sony does not make sound louder? Remember that Europe country have regulation of maximum db sound.
Chamila T, 21 Oct 2015SONY make a bad move in past year with SD810. they did not test the device but release it. now... moreThe competitor of Sony do not want this giant electronic manufacture from japan will grow up in mobile business. They want Sony die! They paid many Online Review to blow up negative aspect of Sony Mobile product. As you knew that so many review said bla bla about negative thing but in the other side, they do not want to explain about the the superiority features many more. Some review seem doesn't want to explain that some negative feature like camera will be fix by software up date later.
Is it true that rooting sony phones are difficult? I generally am Samsung fan, but lately as Samsung does not have sdCard slot was thinking of switching, but I used to root my phone easily so far, it is a drawback for Sony if it is so
