Man, After more than 1.6 years of use, and software up to the last update, I can say from experience, this phone aged beautifully. As fast as it was on the beginning. Battery, hum just ok. I use a glass protector on the back (glass protector on the front, and on the back), and that really solved the slippery issues. Also, from Sony tou can buy noise cancelling headphones cheaper, because xperia phones have an integrated noise cancelling hardware. I just discovered this last bit and it is awesome. Just sad I cannot take advantage of the playstation compatibility.﻿
Jafar kainikkal, 30 Sep 2017Please help me I'm still confusing, which phone is better Xperia x or Xperia Z5 ???Move ahead with time, of course the X is much better than the obsolete Z5 which won't be getting any further updates after nougat. Xperia X doesn't have heating or auto shutdown issues like the Z5 also the camera has vastly improved on the newer version. So just go for the X!!
I have a big Problem now ,the phone shuts often down ,it vibrates fast 3 times and shuts down. and you can not turn it on unless you out the chrager in, its not the battery, I changed it.
Please help me I'm still confusing, which phone is better Xperia x or Xperia Z5 ???

paco2x, 17 Sep 2017Z5 without doubt... yes it's old, but still a high end phone unlike the XA1 which is somewhere... moreYes, but the main deal breaker is because of Google's testing policy, XPERIA Z5 won't be getting ANDROID 8.0, and only getting ANDROID 7.1.1 as the latest version for the smartphone

Anonymous, 28 Aug 2017Z5 or s7 edge? Which one is better and why?I've had the Z5 and i'm using a S7 Edge as i'm typing.
The Z5 is a good phone from Sony. Its a good processor and a very high quality camera. The battery, well it's 600-700 mAh less than S7 Edge. The screen on both phones are superb, but bear in mind that 1 single little crack on the Z5's display will make the touch defective.
When the Z5 works, it is a solid phone. Great performance and high batterylife. Everything runs smoothly and it has a decent design. A bit edgy for my taste.
My Z5 has overheated plenty of times, lagged and froze and suddenly rebooted in larger games like Summoner Wars. It could as highest play from full charge until empty in just under 5 hours where my S7 Edge rests firmlyat around 7-8 hours (still after 1 year of usage).
I cant have a Sony for more than 6 months until problems and errors occure. The camera failed and got replaced, then it wouldnt boot and got a new mainboard and charging port and it came back with a loose back cover (lol). These problems happened to a Z3, Z3+, Z5 and Z5 Premium. I might have been unlucky but my experience with sending each phone for service up to 4 times is just madness :/
The S7 Edge is just oooooo. Its large, yes but you get used to it. It has never overheated after over 1 year of daily usage. Compared to the Sony, the S7E charges a lot lot lot faster. From ~15% to 100% battery in around 60-70 min.
Although the camera on Z5 is 23MP and the S7 is 12MP, i love the S7 more. The colors are a bit modified and makes the picture more colorful with brighter colors (vibrant?). The Z5 is also great. It does have a sharp quality too, but the pictures are a bit darker and much more like the natural colors (more accurate).
I couldnt film continiously for 15 min on neither Sony phone without overheating. The S7E can film until:
A- the battery runs out or B- the memory gets full.
Overall i like the S7E more and im not hating on Sony. They have good phones but the only downside is the hot and overheating processors and sometimes the shorter battery in games.
