This video shows that this smartphone can record 4K for 40 min and some other videos shows more than 40, anyway, if you want to record video for unlimited time then use 1080p(FHD) 30fps, good luck.
Jagot, 05 Feb 2017What is the recommended Battery Charger wattage output for a Sony Xperia Z5 Compact ?Whatever, any charger works fine, the charging method is built in the smartphone, but i prefer to use Sony charger.

Do yourself a favor...stay away from this phone!!!!!!
First of all it is not a mobile as you need always to be plugged in!!!!!!!!! Battery life..two word joke
Record 4k for the 3 minutes!!!!!! then phone reached sun core temperature and shuts down!!!!!!!!! And you miss your son's scoring goal and you want to have the designer of this phone in front of you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In that sense, you could call my opinions frank. There is, of course, room for the device hardware to be poorer performing for some owners compared to others, such a situation would give rise to a skew in good vs. bad opinions. I have given, perhaps, more detail about my experience and history with Android phones than most, so I would imagine that intelligent people would value my opinion. Let's get back on-topic now, shall we?
Anonymous, 01 Feb 2017btw, this is a comment. But my original post is an "oppinion". There is a difference.so in your skiddie world, this android phone is worse than another recent android phone that catches fire and was bricked by the mfr?

Asphalt 8 (which is intense enough to use it as a basis for comparison) is dropping frames and stuttering at low graphics and this is on a 720p display. The phone overheats. I love the speakers though and the camera is fairly decent but far from great. The display itself has a huge red hue and battery can not last even a full day.
I bought it after viewing the pocketnow one year review because I thought they were viable enough. This phone has been a major disappointment, and this is coming from a Sony fanboy.

AndroidDev, 01 Feb 2017"pretty sure", I guess you've used a lot more Android phones than me, you must have used a lot... moreThis is one of the worst, if bit the worst phone I ever had (and still have). Underperforming constantly and memory cleanups are hectic. I can only imagine the Nougat update with 2GB of RAM. They will have to get rid of the bloatware and I am sure that it will still not work. And the only reason I took this phone over X compact is the SD810 vs SD650.
This phone is a powerhouse, in a compact package, so there's no compromises with this little beauty! Well done Sony, and keep up the good work!

Thanks for backing up your assertion with actual discussion about the device in question. I posit that you are in fact the noob here.
And please, name some other phones that send you advertising Notifications, so I can compare againt them.
IMO it is the worst Android phone ever when considering: price vs manufacturer vs features listed vs the actual experience + the fact it was a 2015/2016 device. I've worked extensively (about a year each) with 7 Android phones, and less so with around 30 more Android devices. That is where I'm coming from.
People will tell you Sony phones have great cameras. The hardware might be specified well, however the experience of having to force close the app in order to have the focus restored is, again, excruciating. The panorama feature is horrible as it will not allow you to take vertical panoramas (where Nexus and others do) and you are forced to sweep about 240degrees, you cannot end the sweep early. The software lets all of the great specs down.
Switching between apps and handling Intents can often see delays measured in seconds, not milliseconds. The device spends a lot of time dealing with memory cleanup, as a result you will often come back to an app restarted as it got killed to claim some memory - I can only imagine the Sony apps are big parts of that terrible behaviour.
Sony's tweaks to Android here achieve new levels of awkwardness. When Notifications are displayed they will often be reordered, shuffled, before your eyes like some kind of circus act. When you plug headphones in you will get a Notification or 5 telling you that you plugged headphones in...thanks for that.
Did I mention the popups? Popup when you plug usb in, not a discrete Notification but rather Sony chose to command your attention to their shit UX.

I am pretty sure that the z5c is NOT the worst Android phone ever. Take your immature trolling somewhere else.
Who knows what the problem can be?
Being at the initial setup dialog, no UI controls respond, but for ex. if you press Power button, this dialog reacts fine. So the touchscreen itself seems to be fine, physically... Also, after some time leaved in this state, message appears that the app Camera was closed. Software reset via Xperia Companion did not help.
AnonD-481725, 29 Dec 2016Defected battery, or old in age....It's a 6 months old phone. How come battery is defected? Just ONCE, JUST ONCE somehow it gave me a standby of 24 hours and a SOT of 6 hours - since then, it has been a 20 hours standby with ~3 hours of SOT for me.
