Just bought it. I had a galaxy s6 but it was damaged. Anyway this has better battery life. Awesome fingerprint sensor. Very very good phone. Also smooth fast ui much faster than the Galaxy. Totally recommend this.
I will have my new phone, Samsung Galaxy s7 edge within next month.. I think it's a little big for me cause I saw one in the Mall.. I'm thinking of selling it if I did not like the phone.. I am considering to buy Xperia X or Xperia Z5.. I'm a huge fan of Sony.. My previous phones were almost all Sony.. Xperia Miro, Xperia Sola, HTC Explorer, Xperia SP, Alcatel Flash 2, and now currently Xiaomi Redmi 3 pro.. Would it be advisable to buy the new Xperia X or the more reliable Z5? My only concern is the battery life.. I am used to get long Battery life with my Redmi 3 pro.. What is the SOT of the Z5??? thanks for the answers..

Don`t record in 4k unless you are certain the video wont be long. Make sure the device isn't warm before start recording in 4k, this can significantly prolong 4k recording.

Also keep in mind that its not always sony's fault if a repaired device takes long to return, many times the fault is at the store you took your device for repair.
And you would advice anyone not to buy Z5? I'm sorry do you know many waterproof flagships with stereo speakers, msd expansion, hi res audio support and a great camera?
If so please enlighten me. If not, don't type bullshit. Z5 is the best phone I ever had!

Had Xperia X before. Used to be big fan of Sony. Will buy again if Sony fix the issues.
Like everything about Sony except: poor battery life for video playback, poor loud speaker, poor camera in low light, low music volume level. No wonder Sony sales drop for the last 8 years?
They need to learn from Apple like Sammy has been doing.
Sony Xperia Z5 has a Glass covered back which is very delicate and Sony has very pathetic after sales service, you need to send device via Post for free but once your device is gone you are at whims of Sony and it takes at least 3 weeks to get back and Sony will charge £21 for postage and admin which they get your device. Its like paying Ransom :) I would never advise anyone to buy it.
AnonD-546547, 08 Jun 2016 It uses the same 810 chipset with the z3 plus. Browsing, Streaming and even idle in camera ... morecoming from someone who created an account only to throw bullshit for Z5 is hardly proof. Z5 does have snapdragon 810.. but no, it doesn't overheat. Im speaking from experience as Im a z5 owner, it does get warm.. but not hot. Also it's performance doesn't drop a frame, even when it's a lot warm. Spop with the bullshit about snapdragon 810, IN THE Z5. Z5 is the best snapdragon 810 phone, there is no doubt about that.
The camera takes better 8mp photos at low light because z5 oversamples the image. The camera at 8mp takes photos with bigger pixels, so the lowlight detail of course will be greater than the 23mp one. And no, 23mp photos are 23mp photos. With over 5000+ pixels.. when 8mp photos are 3000+ pixels. do your math z5 takes 23mp photos.. not 8

Browsing, Streaming and even idle in camera made the phone overheat to about 45°c. I switched to an S6 Edge and its much better in everysingle way. Its camera software is also messed up. At lowlight 8mp perform better than 23 mp. Also every 23mp or 20mp shots you take will always downscale to 8mp. This phone is fucked up.
