AnonD-27765, 16 Jan 2017Why is the Z5 Compact more expensive than Z5? In my country they are at the same price, why?? Because sony doesn't have competitors with compact smartphones.
This was the last great design from a Sony phone. This fluid glass back without any plastic antenna lines or part and no need for a plastic frame like XZ. Also the simple colors black and white being present, not something fancy like brown or blue-green. The design was so refined because it built up on every other Xperia Z-series predecessor. This is what I also like about the iPhone 7, a design which builds up on the predecessor but making it even better and doesn't want to "innovate" or be "revolutionary" in any way, but just better than what we had before. Another example for this is the new MacBook Pro which looks similar to a MacBook Pro from 2007, but in modern with thinner sides and bezels. And the fact that Sony just included the best being on market to this evolved design, and not holding back on things every other company has like XZ still having single LED flash, which was ok in 2015 but not 2016. Or fingerprint sensor which was popularized in 2013 with iPhone 5s, new and sometimes just bad in 2014 (Galaxy S5), a proven and refined feature in 2015 and standard in 2016.
Greetings from an iPhone 7 user.
Hello! I just wanna ask how's your battery life so far? I have this phone for 15 months already and lately, I noticed that my battery drains a lot faster than before to the point that i have to charge my phone twice a day. The maximum hours that i can use it was 3 to 5 hours of moderate use, I'm just using it for texting and a bit of surfing cuz i use my phone for work. I tried removing skype, viber and even facebook app cuz i thought that could be one of the problem but I don't know, it's just annoying. I use my z3c once and tried using it like how i use my phone, knowing the fact that z3c has a good battery life so I'm not gonna compare, but it lasted for like a day and half which I'm expecting from z5. I'm not a heavy user or what, but do you guys have an idea what could be the reason behind it? I dont wanna change my phone yet cuz my contract is not up yet and i love my phone :(

Guys, help me decide please. Should I go for Samsung Galaxy S7 or Sony Xperia Z5? I really want a Samsung phone. Does the 2k display really make a big difference or is it just a gimmick and I won't notice any difference compared to 1080p display? And also, is the Galaxy S7 a safe phone? I've read that some units are also exploding.
I want a phone that will last me for years. Which is more durable? S7 or Z5? Please answer all my questions. Thanks.

I am a gamer and I am always on Asphalt 8 + Nova3 (Amongst others) for over hour when am home alone and pls somebody who actually uses this phone tell these liars about the battery life of this phone.... It's just soooo okay! With all that processor power, it's still super cool. I also need to add, unlike other mobile flagship, the Sony Z5 is actually cheaper to mentain that other phones and still manages to give wonderful performances yet! Just the phone for me....
jack, 04 Jan 2017my sony experia z5 looses reception or now reception at allThat's a fault from your phone. Get it checked out cos I and my friend don't ever experience such ever
Which is the more beautiful Z5 color? Black or green. I don't like the white color option. It doesn't look good. And the gold one is super bright. It looks cheap to me.
I've just learned that the Xperia XZ doesn't have an FM radio. Now I think I'm getting Z5 instead.

It can get pretty warm with games but it never closes any game you throw at it. The only thing that can shut down on Z5 due to heat is prolonged periods of 4k recording and that's it. Don't worry about it's gaming performance either due to heat. You might see a framedrop here and there but that's only in certain games. I have been playing super mario 64 (with nds emulator) for hours and I didn't see any framedrops neither a shut down. This includes modern combat 5 too. I have been playing this an entire night and it was running flawlessly.
I need feedback about the overheating issue of this phone. Does it still overheat with latest software update? Can I play HD games with this phone for hours without the game shutting down due to overheating? I'm still choosing between this and the Xperia XZ.
