I have owned the z1, z3, z5 compacts and I have to say at this point I am looking at a different brand because the complete lack of longevity on any of these phones has been more than frustrating. Z1 wasn't waterproof and had battery/heat issues. Z3 had durability problems as well as battery/heat issues. The Z5's camera stopped working after 6 months! And also ...drumroll... heat/battery issues! Call me crazy but if I spend over $500 on a phone I want it to last me more than a few months and not need to be charged at lunchtime. All in all I'm tired of having novel, shiny, gimmicky phones that can't even come close to enduring a normal life. Just so disappointing.
Sony certainly pull no punches with this beast, because it's as potent as a Jeremy Clarkson cocktail !!!!!!

It's a beast, and so is the Z5 Premium! Well done to the Japanese electronic giants, and keep up the good work!
AnonD-481725, 09 Feb 2017Sony's problems are poor marketing and advertising, nothing else. How good is the camera? and can it compete, with the one on the galaxy s7?
AnonD-481725, 09 Feb 2017Sony's problems are poor marketing and advertising, nothing else. I wonder why that is? unless they want their mobile division, to go out of business? and why do they use steady shot on their cameras, instead of proper optimisation?
AnonD-633176, 08 Feb 2017That's good advice, because a faster charger, fries your phone quicker! I am using a 0.75 A old Nokia charger for my z3 instead of the two 1.5 A sony chargers that I own, yep, slower is better for the battery health.
AnonD-481725, 07 Feb 2017A lower amperage charger will make the battery charging slower, nothing else, plus read please... moreThere's less issues with Sony phones, but the problem is, nobody's buying them, so The iPhone and Samsung fanatics are clueless, when it comes to how fast a phone is, outside of meaningless benchmarks, so the suckers naturally assume, that their phone's the fastest!
AnonD-481725, 07 Feb 2017A lower amperage charger will make the battery charging slower, nothing else, plus read please... moreOf course a lower amperage charger will be slower, but there is more to it. Many lower end phones only have a 0.5A or a 0.8A rated charger as these are cheaper to make and that's all these lower end phones need.
But, these lower ratings are max output. Charging is controlled by the phones hardware/software and with so much fast charging these days, a current flagship will try to pull more current, thus pushing a lower end charger to its limits. This causes heat build up and can trip a charger off and on and eventually can shut down or fail. This applies to all brands of chargers, not just Sony, so there is no bashing here. Now, before you start arguing, all this can happen and does happen, but not all the time.
Yes, a 1.5A Sony charger would be best for all Sony phones. But, many brands are now using a 2A charger which is a better option, especially with so much fast charging happening now.
However, fast charging is another topic for another day.
AnonD-481725, 07 Feb 2017Huh, many people claims that they own a sony smartphone and they had bad experience with it, w... moreHow do you know that people with bad experiences don't own this phone ? You are just wrong there, with absolutely no proof.
Sure there are some trolls, but trolls come here for fun because you ridicuosly brag, promote and sometimes lie here, in fact in all Sony forums about phones that you don't own.
There is a small % of faults, errors, design flaws or whatever you choose to call it all phones/all brands. Let's rough guess at 5%. This 5% of people want their problems fixed fast and are pi**ed off with their phones, and with good reason. So they come here seeking answers fast and you call them Trolls.
But, you don't say that your not a owner and quite often insult users or argue their comments as being wrong etc etc. Do you see my point here ? Trolls will go if you and other regulars here stop this nonsense, its really that simple.
Yes, its good to pass on correct info and advise, but your limited there, as I will comment about chargers soon.
