After the Nougat 7.1.1 update on the Xperia Z5 have the issues on battery life (and fingerprint sensor) been fixed and resolved? And were there any other issues been fixed with the update? And is it true the speakers output has been increased (just like it did on the X)?
DenisXD, 10 Aug 2017I think you need a dslr hun, not a phone.No hun. I don't need a DSLR. I need a more than capable, old flagship/above average mi-ranger with a decent hardware.
DenisXD, 09 Aug 2017I don't know, I don't have an X sweety. But I bet they both have similar battery life since X ... moreI'm getting slightly concerned about the Z5. It may have the new (& "improved") Nougat 7.1.1 but i fear security updates will become scarce (than the X). And despite having a higher mAh battery it has an older battery tech than the X's Qnovo and is less optimised than the X. So, in theory the X's battery drains around 10% slower than the Z5. is this a good plausible assessment?
DenisXD, 09 Aug 2017I don't know, I don't have an X sweety. But I bet they both have similar battery life since X ... moreIt is hard to compare a camera of one phone to another. And we have known for a long while that megapixels aren't everything right? But would you say the X (not the Performance coz it's not available here in the UK) has a slightly more better/tweaked camera than the Z5? I need a camera that handles colours "naturally" (not bland or dull-looking or on the cooler side), resolved details (like the edges of the photos doesn't lose details/sharpness), great HDR and a low-light capability that is low on noise, photo with flash not looking "blown up" and with less orange or purple fringing. And a camera that is faster in shutter speed and processing would be nice too. Would that be the Xperia X or the Z5?

Guys this is outside Xperia Z5, but i was watching it on Z5 and isn't she amazing?

So, talking about the Nougat 7.1.1 and the overall UX/UI between the X and the Z5... moreI don't know, I don't have an X sweety. But I bet they both have similar battery life since X has a midrange processor, so less battery drain. But it has 500 less mah than Z5 so they have to be similar.
As for photos I watched pocketnow's xperia x performance camera review. It takes more saturated photos and videos and the slight blue/red tint the Z5 has in low light is gone in X. Keep in mind more saturated photos doesn't mean better. Z5 takes true to life colours.

Both screens have about 500 and above nits and hence it is easier to read. OnePlus 3T have about 440nits which is kind of low for outdoor reading. The best for outdoor reading is GALAXY S7, followed by XPERIA Z5. Both screens brightness are around the same, but the AMOLED QHD on the GALAXY S7 is better since the it have much more vibrant colours, deeper blacks. Even though XPERIA Z5 have a IPS LCD FHD, the colours are also vibrant, but not as vibrant as SAMSUNG's one
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2017Samsung optimization? Joke of year. Sony's UI is the best and stable UI with great optimization.Is it coz of Sony's near stock Android? Then if Samsung's UI is poorly optimised and bloated then why almost all reviews I read the battery life has been excellent/near phenomenal lasting for 2 days easily on normal/light use.

So, talking about the Nougat 7.1.1 and the overall UX/UI between the X and the Z5 which has the slightly louder speakers?
Between the two phones which has a faster camera bootup & processing times?
Between the two which (in theory) takes the better photos in daylight & low-light?
And which you think should have a "true all-day" battery life?
xXENDER FREAKXx, 07 Aug 2017Idk manAsking a different question now which ohone you think would have a greater sunlight readability in terms of screen technology used, colour calibration, etc,....
Xperia Z5 or OnePlus 3T or Moto G5 Plus or Galaxy A5 2017 or the Galaxy S7?

Well the camera still takes a good 2 seconds to process certain photos, especially backlight correction mode (heavy hdr) ones. Other than that, at night the horrible superior auto blue\red tint has been reduced significantly. It's still there but nothing you can't fix within Sony's picture editing.
Sound is the same hun, no differences and not even close to the loudness it had at android faulty version 6.0. Faulty because you could bypass Sony volume control, but damn the speakers were very loud. Like w995 era loud no kidding. I don't know why Sony doesn't let the speakers reach their full potential. They can get 40 to 50% louder without distortion and worry about damaging em. Same goes for the camera, I still don't have manual controls, and it's a flagship!
All it takes is a software update.. get your balls in action Sony!
Im currently torn between the Z5 and the Galaxy A5 2017. I understand the Z5 has Nougat 7.1.1 and there has been a fix/patch on the battery life bug related to the Movie Creator app. But does it now have the means to challenge the excellent Exynos processor (and Grace UX optimisations) of the A5 2017? (The Samsung one might have an older Marshmallow software but based on tests battery life has been excellent + the water resistance albeit a so-so camera.
