people when shooting with Z5 if you are not good with manual settings than don't use them at all! best photos can be achieved in auto mode also just use max resolution for daylight and 8mp for low light situations and night shots in ''SuperiorAuto'' mode you can do that now on Z5 and new camera UI.
I hope this will help to those who are ''disappointed'' with Z5 camera...I'm personally more than impressed !
I don't own the Z5, I have the Blackberry Priv, who's camera is excellent by the way. Photography is part of my work, as I'm an Architect doing lots of work on list and ancient buildings. Part of our work is taking photo's & hundreds of them, they have to be highly detailed so we can do a lot of our drawings off these photographs, so we can replicate the minute details on the buildings. A work mate has the Z5 & it has a fantastic camera, & probably the best at the moment of all the smartphones. However, what gets me is why all the hatred towards Sony. Other brands are queuing up to get their sensors, & don't give me processing "shit" lets Sony's down. We have tested this phone & it's immense simple as that. DxOMark IS the industry standard in this game, they know who's best & who's not & we can't argue with that. If for whatever reason you hate Sony then keep it to yourselves & stop the swearing in the comments just because you don't agree, grow up & don't be childish. Well done DxOMark keep up the excellent work.

Hi! I'm planning to buy a new phone and I'm currently eyeing the xperia x and xperia z5. Which do you think is better for someone like me who's fond of watching videos on my phone. I'm currently using the xperia Z3 and I'm happy with it. It gets hot sometimes but it can manage. I'm not familiar though with technical stuffs. Thank you..😄
I had this phone for a few days now,it is really impressive and does last 2days with moderate use
AnonD-324989, 25 Feb 2016I don't know about Z5 but Z3 is super.Same old, same old. Better wait for xperia X series.

Phone is overheating. Example use skype for 5-10 minutes you can fry egg on it.and while using net battery power sucks. Without Internet 3 days.with Internet hardly one day.camera is not good as company says for example a picture in 23m mega pixel will be 6 to 7 mb but view the image in pc or zoom it.you will get blurred image.a am using z5 gold bought on December. Totally disappointed in its performance. Also not good in network I mean no proper range with operate compared with other phones
The last xperia Z phone :( xperia X performance will replace it :(
Mobilemaster, 19 Feb 2016The Z5 has an amazing video stabilization, and it has a fast Auto-focus. In Auto Mode you can ... morethe best vidio record of any phone,you can run while vidioing and still smooth
i am planning to buy this one but bit skeptic which one to go for moto x pure or sony z5 plz let it know asap.
mostafa, 22 Feb 2016which one is better z3 or z5Z3 for longer battery life.
Z5 for better camera.
Both are amazing.
Every new and present devices are not safe from haters making ridiculous comments (Not just Sony devices though). Some of them even have the "confirmed user" tag like they're a very legit reviewer as with others in this site. Don't even try to reply them, it's definitely not worth your time :)
They can never make more thinner phones unless they change the position of fingerprint sensor. Why are they doing this? Only in a few regions Z5 has FP sensor. They are getting themselves defeated with their strategy. Trust me, their phones are too good, I previously had the Xperia Z2, I am highly satisfied though I moved to Galaxy S6 to take the advantage of Fast charging and better camera. Making waterproof devices is no game changer.They should upgrade their strategies as soon as possible.
Hi guys. I had awful trouble with the loudspeakers on the Z1 and Z2. Any issues with the Z5?
Thanks for your help 😀
