It's 2015 smartphone and you should think about 2016 model. Although Z3 was the best job of Sony so please don't expect other phones work properly like Z3. Xperia XZ (rumors) is next Sony flagship and it is better choice than Xperia Z5. My Xperia Z5 temperature rise up to 58 Celsius easily and the achievement was 65!!!

i am using a xperia Z5. phone performance so good.
but main problems is phone overheating.
when i update 5.0 lolipop to 6.0.1 marshmallow phone battery charging is decreasing.
Is it normal that my z5 gets 63 degrees of Celsius in a couple minutes after updating only few apps with location enabled?

Guys, or Z5 users!
Help me: I want to switch phones (since no more updates and all) and I love my Z3 so much.
Is it worthy to switch to the Z5? I hear it's not much of an upgrade and there are some issues with it too. From what I've heard:
Uninspiring and unpredictable camera: Not much of an upgrade in image quality over the Z3, and sometimes it makes a better picture using 8MP mode, sometimes in 23MP mode
Worse screen: better color reproduction but worse brightness (only 90 nits at 50%??), bad viewing angles (greyish effect), and ghosting (mainly text when scrolling a page or text moving fast on the screen)
Worse battery life: maybe it's because of the CPU, but almost similar sized battery and only 43h or endurance rating from gsmarena? That seemy pretty low. My Z3 can go a full 3 days with one charge.
Performance is OK it seems, with some minor heating issues.
I'm considering a Oneplus 3 instead but 5.5 inches are too big I'm afraid. I would love to get a smaller flagship (5,2 is the sweet spot for me.)
I don't like the Xperia X line at all.
Thanks in advance.

Bettery life is great, I always left about 30-20% in end of the day. Always chatting via messenger or other apps, sending photos etc. Casual internet browsing. Fingerprint scanner don't always work.
Because of the design phone is little bit slippery, but it's OK. About heating issues I don't really know. It gets hot while playing games but every phone does that. And maybe it's a little hotter than other phones while browsing. I have no problem with that.
It's a great phone and I really love it.
Hi guys/girls .. I have Xperia Z1 and planning to buy the new model Z5, but the thing is that some features on the Z1 are better than Z5. Don't know what to do. Who has the last model and what is his opinion about this telephone I will appreciate it.
Thanks in advance!
