It does have a superior camera and a micro sd card slot, however :
- Delicate glass back, higher chances of cracking / breaking.
- Smaller battery.
- No wireless battery charging.
- Not really waterproof.
Will go for something else.

Anonymous, 22 Oct 2015Totally agree, would Not doubt this site gets keep backs from s Kick backs
All Trolls here. Bullshitt. Not a single bad comment is published on the Samsung S6 page. Just try it guys.!!!!!
While on the Sony page, all sorts of rubbish comments are being made. Why???? We won't take it anymore. What is going on? Z5 is a true legend. Z5 is the best fone of 2015.
I did a comparison in OS lag between the new Z5, the Z3 Compact tablet, and the 3 year old Z Ultra. I did feel it frustrating to use the Z5, but I had no idea it was this bad! Anyway, see for yourself how the Z5 get whooped by hardware of long gone days: https://youtu.be/VsVZ65yr4bk
I really don't know why the people some live in Mars some live for future! Some paid great for cheap phone some paid for posing sony trolls..

Sony are experts integrating it's software and excelling battery performance.
It's very true that, sony is the true and real smart phone.
For me I still have z2 for now 10months and it's still perfect in every way. And have never had any single issue. If am to upgrade, I might buy xperia z 5 ultra OR z6 premium.
Thank you Sony for your perfect durable phones.
Sony Mobiles are crap, and they have very pathetic customer service in India.
Z1, Z2, Z3 have no gorilla glass, don't know about this device. (Even China branded 5k mobiles have it).
I had a very bad experience with Z3. Even a light bump with someone can crack the glass and believe me it cost me 15k INR for the screen nearly 30% of the mobile cost. (also seen lots of people with crack in back glass which cost them 4K INR for the plain normal glass)
It took 2 months to get phone back from service center. After a month WIFI stopped working, again 1 month wait... motherboard changed...
As Sony service center are pathetic, you will find long queue of people cursing this company.
I have never seen a repeat customer for Sony mobile.
So I would suggest to buy Sony mobiles only if you are living in wonderland where you have cushions everywhere.
If you still have any doubt then please visit a service center, talk to few peoples over there...
All the best
AnonD-439997, 22 Oct 2015that is a f***ed up batteryEven that the battery is smaller than the Z3 & Z3+, this phone's battery endurance is the best among other sd 810 powered devices. It even beats the sd 808 powered LG G4 that has larger battery than the Z5.
AnonD-439997, 22 Oct 2015that is a f***ed up batterymy z5 gets 2 days as advertised. thing is-i exactly thought what you thought that 2900mah may not last 2 days as said by sony.butafter using z5 i am really glad to inform any prospective z5 buyer that the battery life is indeed awesome.just like my z3.the battery optimization is excellent.ps-the camera is mindblowing.better than a g4,a s6 and iphone 6s.
Got the phone 2 days ago, having used Iphones for 4 years it was a breeze to get used to the new OS. The phone is really easy to use, very fast, very sleek and in my eyes a quality purchase. Would highly recommend it for anybody sitting on the fence between Apple, Sony and Samsung. 10/10
Samsung gog quality and durability. It must be with one person that battery gone dead. I have been using iphone and Samsung sincr past four years. Both are good in their leagues but i would rank samsung ahead. Now i also bought Z3 dual and no doubt that it stands far ahead from iphone 6+ n samsung galaxy s6 edge. I found it better in battery, camera, speed. That is what i needed n now i m quite satisfied n waiting for z5.
I was using iPhone 6+ n samsung note 5 whengot diverted to sony xperia Z3 dual. It is truly unique and have no competition in the market. Would rank it on the top of any brand.
