Carlos J, 12 Sep 2016Any problems with the battery? It seems like my Z5 won't last 24 hours. According to settings ... moreI had that very same issue, just restarted the phone a couple of times and haven't had that problem again.
The weak link to its water proof feature is its lid cover of the SIM reader tray that easily comes loose and let water leak inside and cause damage to its motherboard.
AnonD-481725, 12 Sep 2016You are welcome dear. Well, I did the software repair. The phone is performing better now, but the OS and Android system seems to be consuming more battery gradually, because it started very good.
Carlos J, 12 Sep 2016Thanks for the advice Ali.You are welcome dear.
Carlos J, 12 Sep 2016Any problems with the battery? It seems like my Z5 won't last 24 hours. According to settings ... moreDo a software repair on the sony pc companion, if this didn't help then consider an update soon should solve the problem, but be careful some from playstore causes damage to the software sometimes.
Any problems with the battery? It seems like my Z5 won't last 24 hours. According to settings > battery > battery usage the Android OS and the Android System are the top power consumers, with over 30-40% between both of them, even more than the screen.
CHERRY, 09 Sep 2016is this devise compatible with mac book pro What do you mean by compatible? What do you expect to achieve? Many apps are able to work just fine across platforms.

Saif noble , 31 Aug 2016Why battery performance is lower than previous test..?
Now battery Endurance rating only 48h... moreIt is pretty weird, I still don't get it.
Apparently the maximum brightness on the Z5 is 672 nits (on other reviews, 583-603 on this one), and minimum 4nits.
According to the updated review, it says they (GSMArena) did it initially "50% setting on the brightness slider..." "...with a brightness of only 90nits midway on the brightness scale...".
So, if I leave the slider in the middle I get 90 nits? but if I set it to the max I'll get 672(?)
Anyway, I suppose that if we set the slider to 50% still get the 73hours of endurance mentioned in the original review...I assume.
DenisXD, 08 Sep 2016One time commenters rarely are the real deal, most create an account just to post a negative c... moreYes I am the owner of the Z5 dual, well sorry for posting in the z5, its just there hasn't been any replies there and not as active as this one. All I posted here is so that I can get people's confirmed. Well true that sony covers damage as long as it wasn't your fault, but mine had a drink spill on it and I decided to wash it and then water entered through USB port. They refused warranty because sweet drink came in contact with it and apparently it passed the waterproof test. Then yes it is my fault that I decided to wash the phone and not wipe it with cloth, but all an accident. However this is very hard to prove and stuff hence why its creating so much problems with the service centre I send it to.
P.S. It is a great phone, amazing camera and screen. Just the customer service experience that I came across so far is what I had problems with. I'm not making negative comments but just read some people here managed to get it repaired with warranty being covered so wanted to know how they did it. I hope you understand my situation, I was expecting help and information not being bashed at.
AnonD-578333, 08 Sep 2016No I'm not lying. I've also read online and seems like I am not the only one. Of course the se... moreOne time commenters rarely are the real deal, most create an account just to post a negative comment and then never come back. Just because you replied doesn't mean you are or were a real z5 owner (and because you couldn't have both z5 and z5 dual, you kind of posted the same comment on both phone sections).
Anyway if you were indeed a real owner, Sony covers water damage as long as it wasn't your fault. I know that service varies from country to country, but the Sony warranty is the same.
DenisXD, 02 Sep 2016you are lying. Sony didn't ask me about the details of how my phone got water damaged, they di... moreNo I'm not lying. I've also read online and seems like I am not the only one. Of course the services vary from country to country so where did you get your fixed, cause I know for a fact that the sony service centre are horrible in SEA. They even made my warranty void so I couldn't take it to a different centre. But really annoyed about this since i spend so much time working to buy this phone and broke within 6 months.
Bought this phone new. Exactly 7 days after, the button started to slide under the chassis of the phone. The phone is now in repair. It is a good performer, with good screen even in daylight and decent battery life (the battery saver feature is awesome). The GPS seemed unresponsive at times. Selfie camera is only decent, and night photography was below my expectations. Fast camera launch and fast focus in daylight. Love the design and feels strong and sturdy. Performance wise behaved absolutely phenomenal while I was traveling and multitasking between the Here maps app, multiple PDF's with public transport information, expense manager app and some pokemon go. Honestly, no heating issues, just the normal heat. I was able to get a full day use (about 14 hours) of intensive use and still remain with 30% or more battery. This result was, however, with the battery saver always on. In normal use in the office with wi-fi on and battery saver off, I got about 30% in 8 hours. I was expecting more.
Anyway, I bought 2 Sony phones in the last 6 months both had issues from the start and spent more time in repairs than in my hands. Currently using an ancient Lumia 625.
Strongly advise against buying this phone because of the risk of faulty construction (checked 4 exposition xperia z5's, 1 had the same issue my new z5 had; 25%odds). The money you pay for this phone is not worth the risk of having to deal with the store people and Sony representatives. Let's see how they respond to my written complaint.
