Anonymous, 23 Aug 2017Is there any difference in performance between the Z5 and the Z5 Dual ?No. The only difference is the SIM card slot on the Dual variant. Anything else is the same even performance
Is there any difference in performance between the Z5 and the Z5 Dual ?
Has the Z5 battery life (standby time, video playback, 3g calls, etc.) improved with Nougat 7.1.1? Or is it better to "trust" on the newer phones such as the Xperia X or XZ with their Qnovo tech?
Catherine-Ari, 17 Aug 2017Wow ! It seems like you are a techy guy :D that's perfect. Is it true that many Sony smartpho... moreSony smartphones don't have heating issues. Heating up when using a camera to record is normal. SAMSUNG tries to cover up that problem with recording limitation, limits the recording time to a certain limit, while Sony does not. Sony smartphones record until it heats up and show warning message. If SAMSUNG didn't have any record time limit, wouldn't it be the same? Wouldn't it be have "heating" issues too? U gotta use your common senses before saying they have "heating" issues man
Kiel racho, 18 Aug 2017Hi, I am torn between XZ, X and Z5, upon viewing some of the comments, i saw that XZ is a bad ... moreI would say Z5. It's water resistant and has stereo speakers, plus it's the last Z series phone, the conclusion of Z series.
Catherine-Ari, 17 Aug 2017Wow ! It seems like you are a techy guy :D that's perfect.
Is it true that many Sony smartpho... moreWell Z3+ was a disaster in terms of heat management and it was criticised by many. It never saw many European stores either. It's not entirely Sony's fault though, Snapdragon 810 is the one to blame.
With Z5 Sony managed to keep the heat under control with dual heat pipes and thermal paste, but it gets warm. So no, these are rumours because Sony phones use to record 4k video until they get hot and can't record for longer, but that's a feature not a problem. You see all other phones have a limit in 4k recording. 5 or 10 minutes, Sony phones don't, you can record for much longer than just 10 minutes. For example Z5 can record for more than 40 minutes 4k footage :)
Only Sony phones can do this.
Hi, I am torn between XZ, X and Z5, upon viewing some of the comments, i saw that XZ is a bad choice while X and Z5 weighs in a tough match up. z5 was a flagship and X is midrange. So, tell me more what should i choose between X and z5?

Is it true that many Sony smartphones got heating issues ? Even though they are flagship devices ?
DenisXD, 17 Aug 2017Turn adaptive brightness off.Yeah that's already been turned off. It usually happens when the device gets warm, maybe the screen can't handle the heat lol.
Gino76, 16 Aug 2017Are you sure?Were there any to begin with?
Catherine-Ari, 16 Aug 2017Neither do I, because I am still a teenager and can not still earn on my own XD.
Why did you ... moreWell the stereo speakers is a must, i really like the design and all the reviews ive watched praising it. My previous phone was a Sony Ericsson and it lasted 5 years, i had faith.
All the news about a great camera, videos I've seen with camera samples, it being a flagship etc.
More importantly because it carries the Sony brand, because expensive Sony stuff = Quality and I've experienced it. Clear stereo, clear bass i used to enjoy with W995, amazing loud sound girl! So i knew that Z5 would be great, and it is.
I haven't regret my purchase since, and don't think i ever will.
I have only one issue with my Sony Xperia Z5, but not sure if its only my particular phone or its on all of them. Basically when I am watching a movie or doing something e.g. snapchat, when the phone get warm screen becomes darker even if I put the highest brightness it still reduces the brightness to a medium amount. Once I've put the phone on standby for a few minutes it gets back to normal. It gets really annoying when watching a movie the brightness just drop. Is this a feature in Sony phones and can I turn it off or does someone have an explanation? Thanks for any replies in advance.
Gino76, 16 Aug 2017Are you sure?Yes mine got no overheating after the update
xXENDER FREAKXx, 16 Aug 2017Do remember that the overheating is fixed in ANDROID 7.0 and aboveAre you sure?
DenisXD, 16 Aug 2017You know how to make a guys mood I see.. xd There is a5 as well if z5 is expensive which is q... moreLong story. Wasn't with it being too stock Android. I kind of miss the extra touches of near stock like Sony or even Motorola.
DenisXD, 16 Aug 2017don't have one as I never used midrangers before. Z5 is my 1st smartphone to be honest. I had ... moreNeither do I, because I am still a teenager and can not still earn on my own XD.
Why did you choose the Z5 and Sony ? Any particular reasons ?
Catherine-Ari, 16 Aug 2017Nice one:D what is your opinion about Samsung's A series in general?don't have one as I never used midrangers before. Z5 is my 1st smartphone to be honest. I had my ex boyfriend's vodafone smart mini 2 for a while before I got Z5 though. My 6 year old W995 was dead so he gave me his 2ndary phone.
So I really don't have much experience with smartphones BUT, i know how to use one to it's potential.
