AnonD-434597, 10 Oct 2015They should use ggDragontail in my Z1 is stronger than Gorilla Glass 3 in my moto g. So why should they use GG? The Z3 had Dragontail X in the front and GG3 at the back. And since they stopped putting Anti Shatter Film since the Z2, the scree no longer scratches easily or is not a dust magnet.
I am still using Xperia S which I bought in April 2012. Now, it is time to buy Z5. It looks gorgeous.

I had a Xperia T, had rubberised back and it still works to this day.

z3 not tough, 10 Oct 2015I had a Xperia Z3 and it fell like 4 feet above ground screen first, my Z3 got tempered glass ... moreHmmm.....The only thing I could say is that there are only 1per 500 pieces in XPERIA Z series which breaks because no production line is 100% perfect. And the piece that a person gets id completely depend on his/her luck. :) But felt sad for you as I know how costly it is to get it replaced. :(

So, if ... moreI had a Xperia Z3 and it fell like 4 feet above ground screen first, my Z3 got tempered glass installed, the tempered glass broke as well as the LCD of the phone.. Gorilla Glass is the best.
I have had many sony phones and the one I have right now is the xperia z ultra. I have dropped them all accidentally but I have never broken the glass. my z ultra has falled on rocks in northern California but did not crack at all. it has many scratches but front looks mint even without any screen protector. if this phone is anything like z ultra, which is huge and has more glass footprint, it will not break by dropping it. with that being said if you are a teenager and drop the phone or throw it, of course it may break depending on the impact force but normal people namely more professional people will not break this glass

Some box openings and hands on yeah, but I can't make whether the frame extends or not. I have read that the sides extend a bit from the back and I have seen it in the videos, I'm hoping the same goes on the front with that rubber, or whatever it is. Otherwise I'll have to rainforce it somehow..

For example let's say it fa... moreDont trust them. They even dont have xperias. The plastic you mean is more like hard rubber. In Z1 and Z2 series Its there between glass and frame to prevent water.
it extend the thickness, its slightly higher than glass level. As long has it drop on flat surface, it will hit the plastic fisrt.
But after Z3 sony made the phone thinner. The glass and the frame are in the same level. They make the 'plastic' thinner. I think it will hit the glass when it drop..

The frame and the glass are at same level. So, if the phone falls flat on ground then both the frame and the glass will get hit. But the whole XPERIA Z series is known for its toughness and especially the toughness of glass. I am using XPERIA Z1 for 2years and dropped it many times. The worst drop was when my old safety case clips got weak and broke off while I was waving my hand while holding my phone in it, my phone went flying and fell nearly 7feet far on a broken concrete tile of the foot-path. The screen of the phone directly hit on the edge of the tile and still survived without a single scratch. That's XPERIA Z series for you.
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2015If dropped, the glass should come in contact with the ground.Ridiculous Questions !
AnonD-430843, 09 Oct 2015Xperia Z5 users , can you give us your honest opinion about the device , is there any problems... moredear over-heating has been associated with Non snapdragon chipset or non qualcomm devices. Sony previous devices overheated because of software sony installed. It is now a story of older days.
