I havent experienced any overheating issue yet with the camera on normal mode. Overheating only happens when those built-in apps within the camera are used.
I have xperia z it is a superb 4n
Everything is perfect it has lolipop 5.1.1
Even it is the 1 st 4n of the z series..
Now i am looking forward to buy z5...
It is still very expensive in my country so i need some advice should i buy this one or not?
Bought the Sony Z5. Biggest mistake ever. Practically straight out of the box the first time I went to use just the normal camera outside on a warmish day it overheated within a minute, bringing up a warning screen then shut down completely about 30 seconds after that. It was a 31 degree celsius day. This happened every time during summer when ambient temperature was above about 30 degrees. Numerous complaints with no resolving action led to a lodging official complaint the the telecommunications ombudsman. It was arranged the phone be replaced and new Z5 done same thing. Finally a 3rd new Z5 phone was exchanged at the store...walked outside the shopping center, turned on the camera mode and within a minute overheated. Finally they acknowledged the product has a major manufacturing defect. I was released from my phone contract immediately without any charges and free to re-contract a new phone of my choice.
The Z5 may be ok living in a cold climate like Antarctica or taking on a Mount Everest climb but a warmer climate gets this phone hot enough to fry an egg. Too hot to touch.
There are plenty of phones out there way better than this overpriced hotplate
Too many annoying comments. I have a Z3. It is superb phone. Z5 should be good phone too.
DenisXD, 14 Feb 2016Whatever you say ok, you are right. Z5 has a bad camera and it overheats and its the worse.
... moreyou're right. z5 is a failure.
overheat quickly and worst blur camera too.
the only good thing is it doest lag like galagxy phones.

cefexine, 27 Feb 2016if that is z5 premium, it's worth a shot.it the z5 not premium

Its still camera may not be the best as what those reviews says but it will take pictures in a blink of an eye because of its ultra fast autofocus. Just don't set it to save the pictures in the SD card.

I no longer trust DxOMark's review, it is misleading. Potential buyers should consider themselves warned by the actual owners so they won't be so damn frustrated with it. Most of the defenders in GSM Arena don't even own one, a classic 'hearsay defender'. Xperia Z5 photos are good but do not expect too much, it is just a camera phone. Use SuperiorAuto settings to ensure quality photos.
Should i get the z5 for 700, one plu 2 for 450, z3 for 440 or z3 plus for 530?
Which one provides the most bang for the buck?
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..😄
