I just got my Xperia Z5 today. Been using it for a couple hours now, and so far there hasn't been any lag or studder in the UI. The phone does warm up like any other phone, but never overheats. So far, so good.
when will gsmarena do a review of the z5, id like to get it but need a decent review first...
AnonD-434597, 06 Oct 2015Yes, its real 4K screen displays fhd content, it doesnt look spectacular. Like your hd phone p... moreAnd as for that user's review it could've been a software bug or he was just simply lying. My Moto G was overheating like hell when I was using chrome in Android 4.4. In 5.1 this problem got fixed. Was the Snapdragon 400 to be blamed? Of course not. http://www.gsmarena.com/xperia_z5_compact_victorious_in_a_sony_4k_video_overheating_contest-blog-14329.php. THIS kinda proves that Z5C dont overheat.

They ... morePhone arena is the first to report sony's bad news, last to report sony's good news. The Chinese guy who posted the video later stated that it was touch lag, not overheating. You should've read the title posted by PA, "SD810 in Z5C making users sweat"
please don't look down on sony, they put out products with good quality .. I know the samsung fans always vilifying other product
AnonD-434597, 05 Oct 2015All vendor can do is reduce the heat.
What causes the heat is still untoucable. The cpu doe... moreI don't have the necessary technical knowledge or skill to say that the 810 is the sole cause of the issue.
But there is enough literature out there to suggest it may be the primary culprit. Every device that has so far featured the 810 has been the subject of some bad press concerning user experiences with 'over-heating'. One exception (again, so far) is the Oneplus Two, and that may be because they decided to clock the 810 lower at a max of 1.8ghz.
Sony might have done well to have followed suit.
DenisXD, 06 Oct 2015I don't trust these guys in here, they always favour samsung and doesn't have a clear non fanb... moreWell my experience was with a full production model and I can corroborate the claims and reports of over-heating, at least as far as the Z5 is concerned (but I can see no real technical reason why the Z5C would be any different in this regard).
And don't try to accuse me of any bias against Sony, I paid £549.99 for this product.
I am not suggesting anyone avoid purchasing a device from the Z5 series, but me personally, unless I want a device that can double as a self powered baking tray will be a steering well clear.
in the past year I ve had 3 sony z3 and one was worst then the other. The first was overheating and had display problems, the second was not water resistent what so ever, on the 3 rd the display came appart from the body and it's now in warranty service.
Am I haveing bad luck or Sony is now manufacturing high end cell phones on the knees?
DenisXD, 06 Oct 2015You don't save battery, that's sony's bull. All the 3840 pixels are still on even in 1080p so ... moreIt is to prevent battery and heat.. Battery usage will be reduced in 1080p, why?
Becoz cpu, gpu load will decrease a lot, high load means High power.. Low load means High performance, low heat and low power..
Anonymous, 06 Oct 2015Z5 turns 4K only when it needs..... what on earth is the point of that? Camera i can admit it ... moreYou're mistaken, it's the Z5 Premium than can run 4k resolution when needed not the Z5. The point is to preserve battery life, and not all android apps support 4k resolution at the moment. Don't like 4k? well there's the standard Z5 and Z5 Compact for you to choose.
Z5 turns 4K only when it needs..... what on earth is the point of that? Camera i can admit it has improved. but not worth throwing cash for just a little better camera.
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2015Like you know a lot about mobile photography? You think you're better than those Dx0mark guys?... moreDid I say I'm better than them? Did I say that Z5 doesn't have a better camera than z1?
Why this negative attitude boy? I'm only stating that there is some colour noise at these low light recordings, not that Z5 doesn't have the best camera.
Why so negative?
Guys, what a fanboy!
I couldn't stand that in every paragraph he is favouring samsung and iphone! These are the reviews that I can't stand, they can't be taken seriously!
I mean wtf? Why can't he review the phone with a neutral mind? Why can't he stay on the subject (which is Z5) and not throw comparisons at each paragraph?
All in all he says that Z5 is good, just not as good as S6 and iphone of course. Yeah way to go to show that you are paid by them dude, nice.
Is these the reviews the ones that we should base our opinion on? On reviews that obviously tells you "Buy a samsung or an iphone instead" behind the scene of their acting? Well not for me sorry, I use my brains.

8knots, 06 Oct 2015I believe PA's claim about the Z5C suffers overheating problem was a simple misunderstanding b... morephone arena aren't to be trusted. They always favour iphone even though it's outdated.
They said that to create a bad image for z5c, the youtube user said that it wasn't an overheating problem and that he had a faulty unit.
phone arena were trying to make a fuss about it in an attempt to drop z5 sales. That was pitiful for their reputation and image. I advice all of you not to visit their site.
AnonD-434597, 06 Oct 2015Finally we get our 1st user review. Gsmarena dont get preproduction unit as usual this time... moreI don't trust these guys in here, they always favour samsung and doesn't have a clear non fanboy judgement. Yeah their tests and stuff are genuine but they mostly look down on sony.
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2015http://blogs.sonymobile.com/2015/10/01/xperia-z5-premium-your-4k-display-technology-questions-... moreYou don't save battery, that's sony's bull. All the 3840 pixels are still on even in 1080p so even if the resolution isn't 4k it drains the same battery. that trick is only for reducing the pressure to the already pressured soc.
Hopefully the battery life will be alright.
