I bought a Z5 less than 3 days ago and i already need to get an ELF (early life failure) transfer from my provider bc it completely died. The phone can't be hard reset and doesn't respond to the charger being plugged in.
I'm a sony fan and decided on the Z5 after using the Z2 for 2 years without any faults but i think its important that these issues get raised which is why im posting. i intend to replace the broke phone with another Z5 and hope for the best as it does have some sweet feature which i found good after the few days play, especially the improved audio.
Chamila T, 18 Oct 2015really....? all these years i thought "The Verge" is independent and honest with it's readers.... moreOh and don't believe in reviews by famous mobile sites, believe in reviews by everyday people like me or your neighbour (probably) because we are customers like you. Mobile sites are being paid to review devices so expect them to play nice when they have been paid, and not so nice when they do it without cash.
Nevertheless base your opinion on the facts. Z5 is a full package deal and isn't sacrificing anything like galaxy s6 and iphone 6 do. Z5 is a true Z3 successor. My opinion atm is based on these hardware facts, and if it is as good as I want it to be when I touch it and test it for awhile, i'll get it.
I would never buy a phone that doesn't have stereo speakers, microsd slot and fm radio.

I can't believe people are believing bogus websites like The Verge. The review is filled with full of lies. Lag and stutter? That's the biggest lie IMO http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=7dUMLFMKj30 Look at the comparison between Z5 and S6. None of them lag but if you skip to 7 minutes you can see the Z5 outperforming the S6 in multitasking. And also go read TechRadar's review and PC advisor reviews. They never complained about 'lag and stutter' and if you see in PC advisor's benchmarks, Z5 outperforms S6 and Z3+. Sony didn't pay The Verge money. So they write all fake news. I request people not to believe that fake review and prevent buying the Z5. Just go to the store, try the phone, buy it if you like.
AnonD-434597, 18 Oct 2015I have just read it. Its very bad. Worst review i ever read.. - All Z series are minor engi... moreI am Xperia user, nothing problem in my experience, but I found a problem from here.. It's you!
You won't believe in one Z5 video review on Youtube (I think it was by BTekt), one user was bashing everybody who spoke gud about the Z5. Seemed like a paid troll from Samsung. He was literally abusing every Z5 lover.
In the end, he started getting it from everybody left-&-right as the Z5 isn't a slouch anymore & really is miles ahead of the competition. It is one of those no-nonsense phones that just delivers & delivers well albeit all the gimmicks!
In fact, I'd say after all these years I've come to know of only one thing about Sony. Sony means "quality". One can say it's the Apple of the east. My speakers, LED TV (Bravia), etc are all from Sony & they're awesome.
Chamila T, 18 Oct 2015The Verge killed Z5 reputation by giving 5 point to its performance. my Z2 has 9 points for pe... morethey just found false faults.a bunch of liers.i have a z5 and its smooth-smoother than any phone.and when that liar reviewer says it takes 5seconds to open camera album,any person with a sane mind shouldn't believe it at all.a new flagship phone with latest processor takes 5 seconds??it shows the quality of the reviewer.and yeah,it is absolutely possible that they intentionally broke the back.hell.from the review its obvious he is just blown away by the camera but still he writes-one of the best...even though it is the best.one of the worst propaganda reviews that is utterly false and malicious.to guys who are thinking of buying a z5-my sincere advice -get one and be blown away by this awesome phone.
I have just read it. Its very bad. Worst review i ever read..
- All Z series are minor enginered
- Frosted glass cracked
- Slow n stuttery
- Comfortably beaten by S6 in all aspect, design, handling, price. The writer also say that he prefer G4 and iphone.
Waiting for gsma's
AnonD-430843, 18 Oct 2015verge is paid company from Apple they're reviewing every other device badly, really....? all these years i thought "The Verge" is independent and honest with it's readers. that leads me to think Z5 will be a disappointment if i buy. anyway, I'll go with your opinion and look forward to buy one as soon as its available in retail stores.

Chamila T, 18 Oct 2015The Verge killed Z5 reputation by giving 5 point to its performance. my Z2 has 9 points for pe... morethe verge and many other sites review Z5 badly because sony didn't pay them. They review samsung and iphones good because samsung and apple paid them. In other words the verge is samsung's and apple's bit.ch. But sony won't pay, they have quality devices no matter what everybody says, because sony won't be their puppet.

The Verge killed Z5 reputation by giving 5 point to its performance. my Z2 has 9 points for performance. it's look like i have to rethink this whole z5 thing.
Anonymous, 16 Oct 2015you arr right-people just buy a 16 gb iPhone which is least costly-use it for calls but show t... moreit's both sad and pathetic.. and they don't even know that it's only a phone. Guess that's the new trend but trust me, a big muscled man, a beautiful woman with a curved body, a free runner who jumps above cafe tables will always attract way more attention, than a single gadget.
