Trever, 18 Jul 2016I don't know what it is but after using Sony phones I can't think about buying any other brand... moreYou are in right way man. Sony phones are well optimised. That's why they work better with 3GB ram than Samsung or other crap with 4GB ram. Sony never lag, battery life is super, camera is very good, design is luxury and Sony phones are very durable. I'm Using my Z3 till now and don't faced any issues. My next phone will be Sony for sure.
patry, 17 Jul 2016Which one is better sony xperia Z5 or M5Z5 is better, don't try M5,it goes off and won't boot till you plug it into a charger.
I don't know what it is but after using Sony phones I can't think about buying any other brand, it's just like an addiction or may be the pleasant experience using their phones, I only trust Sony when it comes to smartphone no other brand comes to mind, I don't know why, but Sony phones are a class apart.
Anonymous, 15 Jul 2016thanks a lot what do say about the heating of Z5 as it has SD 810 ... explain it how much time... moreThe only thing that can shut down the camera is 4k recording, tested.
If you are doing anything else (including using the camera app "ar fun") the phone WON'T shut down to cool down. It will warn you yes, but it will never shut down.
As I said, the only thing that will shut down the camera is 4k recording for long, sometimes too long.
never been disappointed with an xperia before i love it cant wait to get my hands hands on the Z5 sweet upgrade from Z2
AGREED!! Samsung will have lag issues very soon after usage and LG will have boot loop problems. I would strongly recommend Sony or HTC
Rajat Sharma, 16 Jul 2016Posting this review after 2 months of use. If someone is looking for Xperia device, go for it... moreI've bought my Z3 not for water resistance but for superb quality, luxury design, enough power and good battery life.
Anonymous, 15 Jul 2016thanks a lot what do say about the heating of Z5 as it has SD 810 ... explain it how much time... moreNever buy any Samsung or LG.
Samsung will lag very much after some usage.
LG will have boot loop issue soon.
Go for Sony or HTC.
keoninzmu, 14 Jul 2016I own both the Sony Xperia z3 and z5 and after owning the z3 for almost 2 years and the xpeira... moreYes. Z3 looks more beautiful and luxury. Lol you can clean it with soft cleaners and avoid scratches. I've protected my Z3 with screen protector (both screen and back panel) and good case. My Z3 looks like new. It works very smooth after marshmallow update. Overall I agree with you. Z3 is fantastic phone.
i am willing to buy mobile but i am confused b/w two mobiles ( NOTE 4 AND SONY Z5) that what should i buy.
sony z5 battery is non-removable and smaller battery and i heared about the heating issues of z5, and note 4 is removable and greater battery.
keoninzmu, 14 Jul 2016I own both the Sony Xperia z3 and z5 and after owning the z3 for almost 2 years and the xpeira... moreThanks so much for your information and a,right now I own thw Z2 and its a Great phone but after I updated to Marshmallow im very disappointed battery life its very bad and some apps crash all the time, but I'm gonna get teh Z5 because soon, I like the design and everything and would be a good upgrade from Z2 to Z5 so I'll keep the same design xD, thanks again buddy take care
Posting this review after 2 months of use. If someone is looking for Xperia device, go for it. I have used most of the big phones including iphones and nexuses. I would say Sony is as good as them. Every company is spending heaps of money to make quality phones, Sony does as well.
It is one of the best handset. I have no issues with performance. Everyone is saying it heats up. No it doesn't cause it has second generation of 810 which is in Nexus 6 as well. It never failed me in 2 months
The only thing I think that can be better is camera. I have used iPhone camera and its amazing. Though z5 has 23mp camera but camera processing is not as expexted.
And this handset is amazing in every aspect. It has one of the best battery life, amazing speakers and design. Not to forget its water resistant. I love washing it infornt of friends when it gets dirty. Lol

I use came alot so camera is big deal for me by the I am also considerin LG V10, S6, S7 (to S7 I have to wait for a while .. :)...)
Bought the Sony Xperia M4 aqua and z5 and have no complaints. Spot on!
Ali Bashir, 14 Jul 2016Wow very cheap (0_0), xperia z5 how much??? If there is no big deference in price go for z5.Also i dont know if its allowed but here are some links to pictures of the z3, its all gross and uncleaned, thats what will happen eventually when you stop caring, which you will stop caring just because of how high maintenance it is. You can also see scratched on the back of the phone, i dont drop my phone, like ever thats all from setting it on tables and such. Lastly my phone case also didn't protect from the scratches on the back of my z3, stuff like small grains of dirt or sand somehow got under it and also scuffed it up so beware of some cases.
The scratches are WAAAAAY worse then it looks, the camera didnt pick up alot of the scratched because of the flash.
And heres the front.
Mel22, 13 Jul 2016Wich phone should I buy
XPERIA Z3 or
XPERIA Z5, Xperia z3 its 200 dollars cheaper in UsaI own both the Sony Xperia z3 and z5 and after owning the z3 for almost 2 years and the xpeira z5 for less than a week, go with the z5 if you care about the condition of the phone. The Xperia z3 is a fantastic phone and my first smartphone that i truly loved, but because it uses a normal glass and not a gorilla glass it gets scratched and scuffed like nothing else and were not talking tiny scratches, the frosted glass on the back of the z5 helps TREMENDOUSLY not with just looks but scratch resistance and smudging too (a huge problem as well with the z3). Also take note that both the Xperia z5 and Xperia z3 use some sort of cheap plastic for the lens which also scratches and scuffs now my z3 takes bad pictures (kinda blurryish ones) so a case would be helpful to avoid that. The Xperia z3 does have a bigger battery which always helps, the CPU and GPU have never been a big problem with me so whether or not you care about that is up to you, personally i dont see a reason for a over the top CPU since there really aren't many apps that can truly utilize the power (at least from what i see). The camera on the z5 is flat out better, thats all i will say on that topic. most everything else is the same but i will repeat this again because it is awful and you will notice it with the z3 always, the smudging, its awful, like the worst, your fingerprint smudges get everywhere and it is a hassle to always clean it (which happens to lead to micro scratches if you use your shirt). All in all if you care about the looks of your phone get the z3 if you do care get the z5.
P.S. i watched a youtube video on the z3 compared to the z5 and in the video the z3 was faster, it does not feel that way to me but i haven't scientifically tested it.
