Adhered my lcd to the frame with superglue and now this phone will last me forever.
Hmm. My screen doesn't pop off, and I upgraded it to Android 11 on XDA. It is perfect.
It really sux that this is the best looking compact phone, because I've had two now and both times my screen has come away from the body, causing all kinds of dramas, although after reading other customer reviews, I feel like I got lucky in the lottery of what usually goes wrong with these phones. Highly unrecommended.

My Z5 compact just retired, after 5 years of service, but I can still access thru bluetooth mouse, I wish its touchscreen can still be repaired.
I love my Z5 compact. I purchased it shortly after it was announced and it's treated me well ever since. Particularly I like the size, the simple design and peripherals. The only thing I wish it had was dual sim card slots. Someday I'll upgrade, but I'll miss the powerful small phone with a 3.5mm audio jack, SD card slot, fm radio, and perfect side placement of the unlock button. This is such a well designed phone.
Aden redhood, 14 May 2020Is it worth upgrading to Sony x compact?You should probably get an xz2 compact of you want to upgrade.. The X compact isn't much of an upgrade. You may not like the 5 inch screen size, but with the smaller bezels, the body size is the same.
Yes, i really miss those compat sonys. Exept the camera which can be really disappointing.

BUT... only thing I miss about Z5c is the great camera.
I use Z5 Compact for 1 month. I had Z3 Compact before. I use it on the stock firmware 5.1.1.
Pros: Better reception from Z3 Compact but not as great as iPhone 6S for example.
Waterproof. Has a radio. Same as Z3 Compact the performance is very well on the original firmware. Battery holds a good charge very well. Power management/usage is balanced very well.
Minor issues: Overheat a lot when using WhatsApp or Viber.
Major turn-offs: Often disconnects from Blue Tooth when receiving incoming call. The camera quality taking macro-pictures is NOT acceptable. At all. All blury.
