Anonymous, 21 Mar 2017Go for Z5. Buy Sony phone once. Don't you tired from boring iPhones?Well, I find some of the iPhone's "advantages" in terms of productivity and work:
1. Quick to boot
2. Triple tap to access magnifier (with Android you still need an app)
3. Blue light filter (limited Android OEMs have that feature)
4. Very quick access to camera
5. Very quick camera shutter speed
6. Individual settings to limit/stop background data
7. Flexible Location Services options (limited with Android)

Gino76, 16 Mar 2017So, how about the Z5 vs the iPhone 6S what would you choose?Go for Z5. Buy Sony phone once. Don't you tired from boring iPhones?

I am the Z5 compact user and it was the first sony mobile i bought; the following problems i face:
1. first problem was to while calling, i couldn't hear (this problem appeared aft one year)
2. poor mic problem while calling (again appear after a year)
3. camera quality is poor in compare to 23 MP.
4. flashlight bleeding pictures (when flashing while taking picture, flashlights bleeds or go into camera lens)
Advantages are all related to software:
1. software doesn't lag
2. doesn't overheats (good core processor management)

Can someone confirm/corroborate this for me?
Mt issue with the Z3 is it wont get updated to Nougat 7.0 and security updates will become more scarce.

AnonD-451592, 17 Mar 20176s dude. All the wayAnd why would u choose a 6S than the Z5?
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2017I wouldn't bother with any of the old Z models; the X are far better and more future-proof.Some of us can't afford the slightly more expensive (and the most derided of the Xperia clan coz of poor battery life) X phones hence the question.
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2017the iPhone 7 - why be bothered with old devices?Some people can't afford an iPhone 7 hence the question. 6s still a good phone?
Gino76, 16 Mar 2017So, how about the Z5 vs the iPhone 6S what would you choose?6s dude. All the way
