Xperia Z5 got a 73hr Endurance Rating on Android 5.1.1 and when it is updated to Android 6.0.1 it gone worse with a 45hr Endurance Rating. The Xperia Z5 Compact got 86hr Endurance Rating is because it is still on Android 5.1.1 they never review the updated Android 6.0.1 update to be fair. The display is one factor that affects the battery life, because of using more CPU power plus that processor is notorious of overheating so the "more CPU power" makes the CPU throttle and overheat causing it to be performing badly in battery life. Android 7.0 should improve the battery life
Why has the Z5 got such a nasty battery life in comparison to Z5 compact? I am sure that the screen surface difference doesn't matter until that point.
Sony will be superb in camera and performance when compare to other leading devices,
concern is once we updated to latest OS(Nougat)sound quality will be poor, Display doesn't have gorilla protection hence it will break easily on couple of fell. Go for XZ.
I have SoT on my Z5 while using nougat mixed use 2hrs35 mins , sometimes barely 3 .. Anyone else like this or its my battery prob ? that 48h endurance is to frustating

AnonD-650430, 23 May 2017Does this device support wireless charging?No.
Sauru, 15 May 2017I also have same question Depends on your requirements.Overall I would say Sony Xperia Z5.
does 256 gb class 10 sd hc really work on sony xperia z5? it seems when trying the processing is to slow. Particularly when capturing pictures. Any experience on it?
AnonD-250158, 20 May 2017Sony, this better get Android O.Its is based on Google's policy of whether the chipset (Snapdragon 810) is compatible with Android O. Don't need to beg for Sony, beg for Google to make this Z5' chip compatible with Android O
Gino76, 01 May 2017But my other question is will charging it "optimise" the battery and help prolong battery life... moreWhat he mean is charging from over 5% to under 95% is better because when u take a full charge u will stress the battery and become hot and results in damaging the battery
Ferry, 11 May 2017Is there a chance for Sony to fix the overheating problem?,, beside that it's a great smartphone No. Because it is based on the cooling of the heatpipes inside the phone. Update will not help it. Update will only help in some app improvements and software only, not the internals.
I have both x and Z5 so I wanted to clarify some things 1 both x and z5 get warm in normal usage but doesn't overheat except you use camera or playing heavy games though Z5 can toast your fingers over time 2 the difference between x and Z5 is 1: 4k 2: ip68 actually 4k is a useless thing and most of the people don't use it normally 3 z5 is made of glass but x is aluminum so it can't be cracked x selfie camera is much better than Z5 both are smooth my recommendation is x because of 1 aluminum body 2 better selfie and I think ip68 don't come in handy very often I never had a problem with rain or humidity using x. And something else battery life is slightly less than average
Angel jannifer, 12 May 2017How is the front camera Quality? I mean selfys are great or not..or should I go For X?Selfie camera is decent and nothing near great x selfie camera is really good but not great either
Sauru, 15 May 2017I also have same question I bought the z5 because i am not into the x series.
