The glass back is big design flaw, also i've had issues with the headphone jack, phone is too big. Camera sucks though, wont focus on anything
Sadegh , 02 Nov 2016Apple 5s or sony z5?????pleaseXperia z5 is even better than iPhone 6 and probably 6s.
Ali Bashir, 01 Nov 2016Edwardos, you left xz page and came here to troll or what? Did u even read my comments ? I have bought a Sony Z5 and so far are very happy with it. I've owned Samsung S2/3/4/5 and all have worked flawlessly, but I don't like the S6 ( small battery, not waterproof and no memory slot). Z5 has same volume as Galaxy S5, but stereo speakers have better quality and I'm loving near stock Android and being able to uninstall useless apps easily.
Edwardos, 01 Nov 2016Thx for help...My new Z5 has no GPS maps program..is this normal ?...if normal, whats is best ... morestrange. Mind came with google maps pre installed, and i advice you to use google maps too, and don't forget to download offline maps inside google maps.

I'm never ever going to buy another xperia flagship phone. I got it in april 2016 and by now the almighty 23MP camera is only getting bad blurry images despite the fact that the glass cover is perfectly clear. I've tried in so many forms to fix it but no result. The front facing speakers sounded good for the first month. Now the sound is horrible with all kind of buzzing noises coming from both of them. Charging the phone is a pain in the ass because it starts to stop and restart charging
in the middle of the night and vibrates continuously. And for the waterproof thing. Forget it. If you even spill some water on it the service will not cover the damages made after that by other factors such as motherboard failure, or touchscreen failure. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE.
Raj, 21 Oct 2016Waste of money day by day sony loosing quLity issue of heating. Low battery. Mainly dual sim p... moreI completely agree. My Xperia Z conked off one fine day and I was told that it was the display issue. The service center kept my phone for 2 months and informed that the motherboard conked off too while at the service center. They took another month and could not fix it and offered me a replacement calling it 'almost new'. It's not even a week since I got this so called new handset and it's started giving me issues again. Now they have offered Z5 or Xperia ultra as replacement and I'm here thinking which one to ask for as I'm sick of this brand I was loyal to before this horrendous experience. The customer service is pathetic. Representatives are rude and senior managers have hung up on me. Very poor quality. I'm stuck now. Would not recommend anyone to buy Sony. Their quality has deteriorated over the period of time and their contact center and service centers Suck big time in India. What a waste of money!
Had my Sony 5Z phone 5 days and water was spilled on it. Not working at all. MTN would not replace as it was water damage. In fact they did not even want to take my phone in at the store to send it to the Sony agent as they "do not want to work with Sony because of all the problems that they have with Sony". Reported this to Sony, mailed me back and gave me a number to phone that does not exist and the machine operated service centre also goes to voicemail saying the number does not exist. Now I have to drive 212 km to go and hand the phone in at the service centre. I am very upset !!

Basicaly after the update battery life is vastly improved with battery optimisation. Seriously it's amazing what a software trick can do
