But S7 with its own Exynos chip has no heat pipes and there is no heating problems. You comments make no sense.
ken x, 16 Feb 2017Hey guys planning to update my z5dual to nougat tomorrow,has anyone updated?any major bugs?thi... moreI strongly advise you against updating your device. I've been reading a lot of stories, articles and the Sony forum itself and people have reported a buggy experience such as: battery drain while the phone is in idle, though it should be fixed now, there's still complaints about the speaker volume being too quiet during calls and during playing applications, contact's app itself is very sluggish.
I am in the UK and i have not yet received the update, but even if i'll get the update in a few weeks, i will not be updating for the above reasons and for the way Sony is handling the Z5 users.
Anonymous, 16 Feb 2017 Heat pipe cooling in an old technology and has been used in Pc's and Laptops etc etc for near... moreBad explanation with wrong expressions, Sony did a smart move by using the heat pipes with their smartphones and they succeeded, while other companies such as Samsung we're so late to copy this idea, so most of their smartphones suffered from overheating, most smartphones from Sony from z2 until now has less thermal issues than the competitors because of this smart move by sony, especially z5,x series.... and the xz the main smartphone where sony successfully solved this problem.
Samsung now learned from Sony to use these pipes with their smartphones, and although they did use it with s7 series while their smartphones still suffered from overheating especially the disastrous 820 s7.
Hey guys planning to update my z5dual to nougat tomorrow,has anyone updated?any major bugs?this phone has been great so far dont get why people say it overheats.sometimes its hot like all phones, i found one solution is to turn off adaptive brightness it makes the phone hotter than usual esp here in africa on a hot day in full brightness:-) on the flipside it also cools in less than a sec.cant complain sony rocks.
Oz, 16 Feb 2017You can say that again cos I used an HTC M9 with the same chipped and wow! I even loved the M8... moreYes, there is a big deference for people with kind of usage, but for me and some others, I am still using my z3 from 3 years and I don't find something pushing me to change it, fast no lags, cameras do its job pretty well.... I may change once it doesn't function well any more, most sony fans do the same, no wonder why sony doesn't sell so much XD.
Ali Bashir, 15 Feb 2017And Sony made the best smartphone in 2015 with this chipset, unbelievable company!! You can say that again cos I used an HTC M9 with the same chipped and wow! I even loved the M8 I used before it really, thereby making Sony a king of 2015 Android phones. There's really not much to argue about it anyways. According to reviews, I even think there's not much difference between the Xperia Z5 and the Xperia XZ really so why even upgrade?
Anonymous, 15 Feb 2017You obviously never owned a Z5 or you would know of the overheating problems, camera shutting ... moreYes, the Sony Xperia Z5 heats up only when u play HD games which is same on Snapdragon 820 phones pls. Yet, if never force closes. I open up over 15apps and at least 8 run internet and it never lags. If ur Z5 slightly gets slow just force shut down 2apps alone and I tell u dude! It breezes again. Been using this phone since last year and am telling u, it's the 1St phone since 2003 I been using phones that proves I can use a phone for over 2years cos it give me all I want. I used an HTC M8 before this and I must say wow! The Sony Z5 has done a wonderful Job! It's fingerprint is one of the best in the whole world and Anyone coming here to say rubbish about the Z5 is just a hater so pls stop trying to kill the company's name..... Oz
Ali Bashir, 15 Feb 2017You obviously never owned a z5 or you would know that there is no overheating issues with this... more Heat pipe cooling in an old technology and has been used in Pc's and Laptops etc etc for nearly a decade. Usually water cooled. It's a careful balance as always: performance vs. heat dissipation and power consumption.
Usually copper pipe cooling systems have water inside a copper envelope in order to cool electronics, changing from water to vapor and back, operating within a temperature range of 20°C to 150°C.
All Sony Xperias since Z2 have heat pipes due to thermal heating problems in Sonys designs. This thermal heating problem still exists in the Sony XZ, but to a lesser extent. Sony copied this old technology and adapted it to its Xperia range. Lumia 950XL also used heat pipes with the disastrous overheating Spapdragon 810 chipset.
Samsung has launched variant models of the Galaxy S7. North America (USA) uses Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 in Samsung S7 . The other version uses Samsung's 14nm Exynos 8890 and is for International markets. The model with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 solution uses heat-pipes. S7 with Exynos 8890 doesn't have or need heat pipes.

It is however miles better than the s*** S6 without SD card support and lagwiz. Try again man..hahaha
Anonymous, 15 Feb 2017It is qualcomm's fault not Sony's. Your negative comment makes no sense.And Sony made the best smartphone in 2015 with this chipset, unbelievable company!!

And yes other companies used the 810, the z5 was the best smartphone between all smartphones with this chipset, no wonder, SONY, why don't you show us where did GSMarena talk about the overheat issue... and Samsung is who copied sony's idea which is using heatpipes with their smartphones.
please make up your knowledge, you are embarrassing yourself in all sony pages with your unreasonable hate.

The heating problems with Snapdragon 810 are all over the net and even gsmarena has spoken of it.
Other companies used the 810...eg. LG, Moto, Microsoft, Lenovo etf etc, but all had to throttle down the 810 due to its heating problems.
Heat pipes have been around for years in laptops, nothing new there from Sony. Sony just copied the idea.
Please update your knowledge here. You are everywhere in Sony forums but don't own any of the phones that you are promoting.

Why you sony haters are trying to mislead people on all sony pages, please keep your unreasonable hate for yourselfs.

Samsung must get rid of their heavy Touchwiz UI. On the other side I have Sony Xperia Z3 which is two years old but smooth till now. Never lag or hang.
Ali Bashir, 13 Feb 2017Probably, why not, but come on people!! 2016 vs 2015, show us your smooth s6.S6 is a better choice over the Z5. Samsung was smart and didn't use the disastrous Spapdragon 810 chip that Sony blindly used on the Z5. As it overheated so bad and was heavy on battery usage. Sony Z3+ was even worse. Yes, S6 wasn't perfect either, with a small battery and no memory card slot.
Dunno why you Sony boys are constantly talking about and bashing Samsung. Jealous, envious, obviously yes.
