None of the previous 2 had to be replaced like this. There coud just be a problem with the devices shipped to your region or that store in particular. I suggest trying to buy online for a change.
JustBought, 02 Apr 2016Hi guys, how long does your battery last on default settings whilst using apps like watsap?

Continuous screen On time,
continuous use of data [not WiFi] , especially downloading things.
U are doing 3 of these things continuously then obviously battery power will drop faster.
Hi guys, how long does your battery last on default settings whilst using apps like watsap?
after using the app for around 35 mins i get about 10% drop in battery. Is that normal?
whilst i was fiddling with the phone installing apps my battery had dropped down by 30% after an hours use. Is this normal?
AnonD-498245, 18 Mar 2016friends......what about green xperia z5......u like it?I decided to go for the golden one For a challenging change. And I can say that it feels and looks great. It's matte golden.
I think these Sony phones are great....when they are working! I'm on my 3rd Z3 in 18months and I'm a careful owner. My 1st one suddenly became un-water resistant, Sony replaced it with no questions - I think the seal had melted inside the phone due to heat issues. My 2nd phone was sent back due to an issue with the ear proximity sensor - phone just randomly vibrated while on a call, and now my 3rd phone has been sent back today due to the sound not working in the headphones correctly. As much as I like these phones, the build quality is poor and I can't see how they will ever last the duration of a 24month contract - but on the other hand Sony seem happy to keep sending me a replacement phone. I'm a few months away from a new phone deal, but I'm looking to see if the Z5 has any of these issues that seem to be pretty common on the Z3 judging by other forums.

If your Sony smartphone or tablet is waterproof to IPX8 standard*, then you can use it in a chlorinated swimming pool. However, avoid keeping the device in the pool for too long and remember to rinse it off thoroughly with fresh water once you get out.
Over time, chlorinated water can corrode the rubber seals, so prolonged use in chlorinated water is not recommended. But if you want to use your device to get underwater close-ups of a spectacular dive or your childÂ’s first swimming lesson, go ahead.
* Sony devices that are rated IPX7 or lower should not be exposed to chlorinated water.

I think if this phone wasn't 100% water proof it shouldn't have ip68 certificate, I mean if this one can handle just some dropped water or rain then it's certificate should be IPx5. When they claim their product has IP68 it mean it has to protected again drowning in water in depth of 1.5 meter and last for 30 minutes. Also note that it is protected against pure water.I guess your phone break down due to environmental situation.maybe depths were more than 1.5 m or it rest there more than 30 minutes , maybe pool water is different from pure water. This phone doesn't have USB port & 3.5 jack cover so it's not a good idea to carry your phone into pool

I got a sony xperia z5 and its very fast, doesnt overheat and the battery is awesome.Im a freak in trading phones all the time and i had the s4,note 3,lg g3,xperia z3,nexus 6,note 4,s6,htc one m9,lg g4,xperia z3+ and the z5.Lg phones are crap,htc one m9 overheated,i always like samsung and for the xperia series the z3 was good,the z3+ overheated alot and the battery was bad(kind of like lg's) and the z5 is amazing.Since i upgraded it to marshmallow its faster then my girlfriends s6, it doesnt overheat and the battery life way better then all of these other phones and i meen double in some cases.
CONFUSED, 31 Mar 2016why the hell comment on this or even click on its page to leave that comment.because he is either one of the paid trolls from Samsung that comes here to bash it's competition or he is just a fanboy who spread hate towards any other brand....
anyway I wonder why GSMARENA ignores news like these :
if it was Samsung phone to be awarded for design news would be all over the page....

AnonD-497638, 31 Mar 2016yeah...but sony doesnt say that...now they are saying DONT SUBMERGE them under water...dont us... moreNO ! exact statement goes like this :
''You should not: put the device completely underwater; or expose it to seawater, salt water, chlorinated water or liquids such as drinks.''
'' YOU SHOULD NOT '' but you are not prohibited to do so and there is no way to prove exactly what someone actually did with phone. you can submerge your phone underwater and warranty will still be accepted.
the reason why they changed their policy is because most of the people don't have enough common sense and take their phone for submarine that can go trough anything like taking phone on swim 300 meters offshore in the ocean and then if phone happens to brake just walk in Sony store and expect replacement for brand new device ....
that's why new statement starts like this :
''The Xperia is waterproof and protected against dust, so don't worry if you get caught in the rain or want to wash off dirt under a tap, but remember: all ports and attached covers should be firmly closed''
In the end it means don't be a fu#king stupid and use it with some care yes use it in water but like it's supposed to be used it's phone that costs 700$ and it's not swimming duck for your bath.
