Using this phone in 2019. For standard usage, such as calls, emails, watching films and web browsing, it's fine. I had overheating issues out of the box with android 7.0, however after some tweaking and updating the phone all the way to 7.1.1 with the latest Xperia update, it now runs smoothly.
I've not tried any games because I just don't like mobile games. I assume gamers won't have a good time with this device.

Just make sure you use android 6.0.1.
The cons of this version cannot run pubgM smoothly.
It will heat to much and game became laggy and freeze.
If you want to play PUBGm make sure to use android 5.
Smooth although got some heat to but no lag or freeze.
Android 7?, stay away from this version. Heat, lag, warm always but many features.
Just share my opinion buddy.
Hope this help.

Extremely fragile screen and back casing. I have had three Xperia Compacts and although I feel they are a full featured medium to high end phone, they can shatter on just a short fall off a table. I have been a Sony Ericsson fan and loved the Active and the Go. These were waterproof extremely impact resistant compact phones. My XZ5C and XZ1C Shattered with hardly any impact. A great compact size but I cannot recommend.

Sony Xperia z5c is one in the list of best compact phones ever, I am using it since last 5 months without lagging. Crystal sharp pics, may be most of people wouldn't like it in low light. Selfie camera is also good but only during a day not in night, little bit heating but acceptable, if u only use for calls or text or reading PDF books like I do u will definitely get 2 days battery timing, if u r a heavy surfer then it won't give u satisfactory result, overall Sony z5c is low budget and attractive looking cellphone, it was my reviews for mine z5c, may be my opinions and reviews vary from others, if someone get mind, or have opposite reviews then me, in this circumstances I just wanna pardon.
Have a lot of problems with overheating and pocket calls. Not tried that on a phone before

In fact the XZ1 is likely to be the last Sony I ever buy because the side mounted button/fingerprint reader is one of the differentiating features that are actually useful.
Can anyone tell me if the power button being on the side is causing them to accidentally turn off the phone? To me it seems like a huge problem... you pick it out of your pocket and accidentally press the button.
It's overheating, it's known that Snapdragon 810 is one of the worst ARM CPU's you can get your hands on. Crashes often and overheats, only good thing to say about this phone is good battery life
Z5 overheat bcuz sd 810
I used 4 smartphone with sd 810 procesor they all heat heat like hell
Just turbo 2 doesn't feel hot bcuz of his fat back
