Abstruse, 25 Feb 2017It would be a good phone. But there is one major problem with it that I cannot forgive. Buil... moreIt is not the smartphone problem, it is an application you installed, some applications even if you did uninstall it will keep making advertising, reinstall the software through pc companion and everything is going to be fine.
I just updated my soney Xperia Z5 to Android 7.0
And my loudspeaker for music is not loud
And incoming calls ringtone is not loud
6.0 and 5.0 Android everything was okay
It would be a good phone.
But there is one major problem with it that I cannot forgive.
Built in apps and advertising that tenable themselves every few days or you cannot disable at all.
When I spend hundreds of pounds on a product I do not expect it to spam the hell out of me daily with what's new and notifications promoting further products.
They should be paying us for having to see all these ads.
What's new you could disable temporarily but now you get a message stating it cannot be uninsulated or disabled.
I used to love Sony phones but they can go to hell now.
AnonD-481725, 25 Feb 2017Dude, first of all there is no need to go offensive in speech, anyway, the arguments in the pa... moreYes there is a very good reason to get offensive against people like you . Let me explain to you why:
You have been around here for ages and the only thing you are searching for is ways to disargree with other contributers who have issues with their Sony smartphones. The way you are flooding this site with your comments (only on Sony articles, and on all of them!) makes it seem very likely that doing this is your profession.
I think that what you are doing is very, very disrespectfull to the other users here. And if you get to a point that you realy start to irritate people they wíll get offensive.
I would rather see that a big name like Sony would take their customers seriously when they have complaints about certain applications or hardware - instead of ignoring them. Or even disagreeing with them, just like you are doing here on GSM arena.
So stop it
[deleted post]Dude, first of all there is no need to go offensive in speech, anyway, the arguments in the past were about if the camera of this smartphone was truly the best in the world or not, and I'm so sure that the camera of this smartphone is so far ahead from being bad.
[deleted post]Ok.. who the f gives you the right to call my mate a dummy?
Just because he has a different opinion from yours? In that case aren't you a dummy as well?
As for the Z5 camera, it's great for me and many others so deal with it. If it's not good for you that's fine too, but at least give us valid objections like I do if you want to be taken seriously, dummy. capisce?
AnonD-481725, 24 Feb 2017Actually, the real owners say that this smartphone is a camera beast, and I say it again, it w... moreWell it is but sometimes there is a lot of noise or a smudging(rarely) if these ar fixed it might be much better then the competition even newer phones
After android n update my phone gets hot when playing games or browsing games are lagging a bit and gta is having some glitches and the phone sometimes stutters but the good thing is battery life has slightly improved camera is a bit faster audio quality has improved slightly and the ui is great
The new update is great phone is faster, battery better and sound louder so not sure what issues others are having. Maybe an installed app doesn't like the new update and is drinking power... 😁

DenisXD, 19 Feb 2017Ok it's been three days that I'm updated to nougat, and im disappointed. The battery drain... moreSame here,the volume is very bad now,hope that in 7.1 it will be fixed or in the next update)
AnonD-645892, 24 Feb 2017Terrible low light photography...Sold mine and bought another brand and its low light photogra... morenot terrible, but also not great. Z5 has a weird blue or red tint on some of it's low light shots at the sides of particular photos. Z5 is still a pretty darn great photographic phone, just not the best anymore.
The battery life yeah, it's draining fast i admit that, but this happens since i Â”updated" it to nougat. Worse battery life, dropped volume levels, top speaker distorts at max volume, bluetooth turns itself on at times..
They better fix these because on android 6 it was great.
But saying it's a bad phone? naah its down to personal opinion. I still love it even though Sony messed it up with android 7.

Twikuus, 24 Feb 2017No it is not. I know, because I own one. Just look at some samples here from the Z5 and XZ ... moreYes it was, and the xz is the best smartphone camera now, oh, and regarding to that link, anybody can go there and post whatever he wants, don't trust it.
AnonD-481725, 21 Feb 2017The camera of z5 was the best in 2015 OFFICIALLY, and still decent nowadays. Terrible low light photography...Sold mine and bought another brand and its low light photography is great...Also terrible battery life.
You are a fibber as you don't own this phone.
AnonD-481725, 21 Feb 2017The camera of z5 was the best in 2015 OFFICIALLY, and still decent nowadays. No it is not. I know, because I own one.
Just look at some samples here from the Z5 and XZ camera (official Sony Mobile Website forum): (oh, and take your time, it's already 31 pages comments and samples by Xperia owners)
Trenton , 21 Feb 2017I have an Z5 and my pics come out fine..so ill always buy Sony.I hear that from a lot of people. Untill I show them the pictures made by my Samsung Note 1 from 2012 with only an 8 megapixel camera.
If you not have very high standards the Sony camera will seem fine. But that also accounts for many low end 5 megapixel camera's. They're fine, but defenitly not good.
Krassimir, 21 Feb 2017After the update when I have the same problems.Have you tried resetting it to factory settings? Sony phones usually have this problem after a major update; apparently it has something to do with the Stamina mode. I had the same problem with my Xperia Z when upgrading to Lollipop and restoring the phone to factory settings did the trick. Some people reported that uninstalling and manually reinstalling all the apps also solved the problem for them, but I wanted to do it properly. If you do go resetting the phone, be sure to backup your data since it will be lost in the process.
