Bezels are imp to hold the phone properly. My Z3 Compact has 1 of the smallest bezels. When I try to take pics, my fingers come across camera. While gaming my palm or fingers brush notification bar accidently & it is pulled down. I have had to adjust holding the phone after buying this 1 due to small bezels.

They are the space for stunning camer..great stereo sound..incredible multitasking performance and long battery life
Moreover..They are for NEW technology..
I love Sony. But most often get disappointed. Not because the device isn't good enough. But because I'm not getting the greatest I'm demanding for.
I hate the bezel. Too big
I'm disappointed with the camera-not what I know Sony for.
But I'm not settling for good.I dare Sony for the greatest.

This page isn't for you. Go and comment in Samsung page.
Sony phones are gud but same style from Z1 ,z2,z3,z3,z3+ and now z5.i used all phones but this time moved to samsung s7 .which have very nice camera , beautiful design and long battery life....byeeee Sony
I bought this phone 3 months ago and i am very pleased about it it runs very well dont need 4 gb ram and all the games that i try including real racing 3 or gta series worked just fine .... For me the only disconfort its that sometimes it gets hot but i think its normal for packing an powerful octacore processor under the 'hood' .... I had before xperia z1 and i was very happy also with that phone now i give it to my brother and he is not complaining about that one also... So i think this phones are a very good alternative to samsung or iphone for me sony are the best
Anonymous, 23 Apr 2016Is it 3GB LPDDR3 or LPDDR4 RAM? LPDDR4 would be nice because of the higher clock speeds.lpddr4
dexter, 16 Apr 2016Sir how to identify the original z5 or fake?please tell meIf you buy it from a shop, it is OK. If you buy it on line, you may buy a fake one.
Is it 3GB LPDDR3 or LPDDR4 RAM?
LPDDR4 would be nice because of the higher clock speeds.
sarahmelas, 18 Apr 2016Agreed! I've had 2 iPhones (3GS/4S) and a Galaxy S then went to Sony after exhaustive research... moreI agree with you. My first Xperia device is the Xperia M2. It's a 2014 mid-range device. It's battery is average but performance is totally awesome. It runs games and other apps better than my friends Galaxy s5 and a5 considering that this phone is only a mid-ranger and the s5 is not and the a5 is released much later than the a5. Sony makes good phones but I really hate the camera. My M2 takes very grainy or let's just say, terrible pictures. But performance is good anyway. Design is far from the a5 and s5 because Samsung makes beautiful devices but how good is design when performance is shitty. I am planning to get the X Premium if there will really be an x premium or x performance because I love how great Sony devices are.

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 :)
AnonD-526102, 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!
