Having had my nexus 5 (not 5X) for two years and not at all having a problem with it until the that started overheating and the battery would only last 5 hours. I needed an upgrade. Got the Z5 as a present and absolutely love, the fluidity, the OS and the little "Sony" touches. However I think maybe this is a faulty item as it starts to over heat just on a normal phone call and after 30min its unbearable to hold. Looking at the heating reviews on you tube, where the phone only overheats after 30 min of intense game play I am going to exchange this phone for another (green) Z5. I absolutely love the phone, had no problems with the battery, nor camera. Only overheating. Hopefully the next handset will not have this issue.

I cant decide which one to buy, Sony Xperia Z5 or Huawei Mate 8. Which one is better for daily use and gaming? I used many Sony products and they never let me down. On the other hand, I don't know anything about Huawei, on the paper and by reviews phone looks to be rock solid but I still have trust issues.

The Z5 is a solid performer as long as you look after it. I use two apps (Clean Master and CM Security) to optimize performance once a day and I'm regularly using only 50% of the RAM because I'm using those apps. The phone runs much smoother than any other android I've used, haven't gotten around to rooting it yet but I have disabled all of the Stock Xperia apps as well as the ones that are pre installed (amazon store and apps alike) And I am a heavy user of the phone, Battery is one issue I have with it but if I'm at work (which I normally am) I regularly get home with 80%-85% remaining. Get the Standard Z5, Good price point, great features and truly amazing Pictures (especially when blown up to larger scale)

DO NOT BUY A XPERIA
Do not buy a Sony Xperia phone. I owned the Z2 which was great. Purchased the Z4 and it cracked very easy. But insurance replaced it with a Z5. This cracked even easier! Fell 50cm onto carpet within 2 months and cracked. A small crack in a Sony phone means you cannot use them!
Go for z3. The back glass used in z5 cracked its own. Its my persnol experince..

hey guys as we know that Snapdragon 810 has pretty bad history about heating issue it has.... As Z5 has SD 810 , Does it heat up like Z3+,while using camera... I am planing to buy Z3 or Z5 price difference between both em is about 100 USD....so guys help me... and what are benefits of Z5 over Z3 anf vise versa...????

I have used the Z5 for about 3 months now and its hitting 100mbp/s+ on 4G+ or about 30mbp/s on my Fibre. So either your connection is weak from the source or your device is faulty.
