Anonymous, 29 Oct 2015This is same as Z3+ but with new marketing, that's all, same specs- it's 99.9% same hardware. ... moreZ5 shares a lot more in comon in terms of design than its interiors.. chipsets are diferent, camera is diferent, batery is diferent, has a fingerprint sensor that makes a lot more sense than any other company, and its water and dust proof. Sony makes the coolest and elegant phones right now.

Firstly, even if they boosted mpix, they still designed a new sensor. Plus, they've added the fastest AF on a smartphone, is that not designing a new one? And FYI, Sony beat both the iPhone 6s and Galaxy S6 in a blind camera test, so how the **** can you say photos "looks same shit and software still lacks far behind in competition"? Go bring your hate elsewhere troll

This is same as Z3+ but with new marketing, that's all, same specs- it's 99.9% same hardware. Ok, they've added a finger print sensor, ok-ok, that's a new feature, but the camera, which is also claimed as new, thb, it looks like they just boosted more mpix rather than designed a new one as images looks same shit and software still lacks far behind in competition. good try Sony, fools will love you!

Just bought this phone today and one word to describe about this phone is World class. The camera is so good and whenever i install apps in google play store within 2 seconds the app is install. Best android phone right now !

You see, Xperia Z5 does not overheat like the Z3+, but it still has issues. For example, there are inconsistencies in the benchmarks of Z5: some get over 60k, some get 53k. But of course benchmarks really don't mean much as Z5 still is faster than S6 in overall performance.

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..

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.
AnonD-305173, 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.
