I'm using this phone right now... Good phone but gets really hot during Skype video call, and finger print scanner is rubbish. Bought it only because had a good deal. Would never buy it for a retail price.

I stayed loyal and I'm glad I have :)
BAUSE, 15 Apr 2016People people people.... Don't listen to the nonsense others talk about the z5 or the z5 compa... moreAgreed! I've had 2 iPhones (3GS/4S) and a Galaxy S then went to Sony after exhaustive research. I bought a used Sony Xperia T (Bond) and loved it so much I got a new Xperia ZL LTE and Wow, even better.
Unfortunately, an idiot at Metro plugged it in to an incorrect source and fried my battery. They gave me an LG K7 and Id rather use a corded landline. ICK! The battery IS replaceable and about $10 but it's surgery...not difficult but tedious.
I used my friend's Galaxy 6 Edge for a few days - he insisted Id buy one after using his. HA! Im now trying to decide on the Z5 or wait a few weeks onothe new Xperia X line.
They're not bumping up from 3 GBs of RAM to 4 like some but I don't see a need.
Sonys customer service is terrible but I never needed them. I also don't mind the nonexistent marketing - Im totally happy being "in the shade" and the only person in the room with a Sony. Sony does have an online presence and I found that there's a huge family of Xperia owners I can interact with. I always root (jailbreak for Apple) my phones for total access/control. Sony actually assists in the process so I can find a stable, trusted custom ROM.
Sony plays nice with other phones (transferring data, etc), and works seamlessly with all of my devices. I love Mirror and Throw.
BTW, all 3 Xperias are still running strong! I gave the T to my mom and the ZL to my Goddaughter, and neither are asking for new phones. My apologies but my theory is more is more with regards to technology.
Finally, the simplicity of Xperia's appearance is sophisticated. I also like the less rounded corners of most Xperia models; it sets itself apart from all of the others. Sitting next to other phones of the same "screen" size, it's always smallest. Why make bezels so large? I hate waste and that's all I see. It adds weight and size.
Good Luck everyone!

dexter, 16 Apr 2016Sir how to identify the original z5 or fake?please tell meA way to identify weather it's fake or real is the fingerscanner ability if it works properly or not also the back would make a hollow sound when you tap it. When your typing the keyboard on the original can be dropped down by touching the back button which should be a triangle facing down when on keyboard, the camera dedicated button on the fake is wobbly and has not got half tap focus, and only last thing is the camera although it could fool some by having a decent quality image if you start recording 4k on the fake it probably wouldn't be 4k and you won't be able to take 4k snapshots
Anonymous, 16 Apr 2016It's because your z5 is a fake.Sir how to identify the original z5 or fake?please tell me

If you are careless then the device wouldn't last for more than a year. Same story qith the other devices, they get old and slow down. But Xperias and Iphones do perform great even if they are old already.
People people people.... Don't listen to the nonsense others talk about the z5 or the z5 compact because it does NOT overheat under any circumstances especially after the m update and as for those who try and say iPhone is better Samsung is better until those people actually own a z5 they will keep saying the same rubbish comments. The z5 is a perfectly fine phone waterproof great camera I wish I could upload some samples here to show you guys absolutely no heating issues and over all looks stunning the frosted glass on the back is genuine and it's no longer a funky mirror like the z3. In small words it's a man's phone rugged and fast. I'm sure a lot of shops have the z5 on display go have a look try it out see for yourselves.
Just bought a z5 2 weeks ago but the battery is not good its smaller than z3 , not even lasting like a z3 . its so frustrating.

mohammad, 13 Apr 2016Hi ashkan I dont know how I download and setup the update program guide me please mersi :-)Hey mohammad, do you mean system updates? Connect your phone to a computer through USB cable which is inside the phone box. Then run Sony pc companion and it will show you a message (if there was a update) when you accept to install new update software will handle it, it's not complicated . just like that. Easy as pie.
