Good news for xperia z5/z5 compact users there is a new update availible via pc companion
with following builtnumber [ 32.0.A.6.152 ] with stagefright fix and better camera performence you can get moore information on xperia blog net
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!

Almost got mislead by an Indian YouTuber by the name cheeky ranjit... His job is to sing praises on cheap Chinese phones and bash sony, I went through with my instinct and got the z5, and wow... Wat a beauty. Like no other...

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.
Back into gsmarena's top 3 daily interest :)
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
