Can someone please help me? I'm trying to choose between the Z5 compact, the X compact, the XA and the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016). Which one is the best? I'm looking for a good camera, fast, no lagging or crashes, reliable. Just for normal social media/email use, no gaming. Thanks!
nima , 16 Dec 2016Please some one answer me i want buy a small phone i have note5 but it's abig phone and use it... moreI bought xperia z5 compact and it gets warm at heavy load, it has some cool features that iphone does not offer, but personally i would choose iphone se, because of its non-heating processor and camera.
nima , 16 Dec 2016Please some one answer me i want buy a small phone i have note5 but it's abig phone and use it... moreOh sorry i forget to tell you something, this smartphone is a battery beast!! the camera of this smartphone is the same one in the regular z5 which was the best in 2015, the speakers of this smartphone dual front facing one on the top and another on the bottom, they are not loud as htc 10 but very good, you may face some thermal issue same as most smartphones in the market if you are heavy gamer, and don't forget about waterproof feature...
So no there is no way to choose iPhone se over the z5 compact, but why not the x compact it is much much better and i think it has the same price of z5 compact, but it doesn't record 4k and not waterproof.
nima , 16 Dec 2016Please some one answer me i want buy a small phone i have note5 but it's abig phone and use it... moreZ5 compact, overall is a good phone. A bad point is that it gets very, very warm due to the Snapdrgon 810cpu. This CPU performs very well and doesn't cause any other problems. Some people find it irratating beacuse the phone gets so warm in your hands.
It has great sounding stereo front speakers, but are a little low on volume for some people.
Battery life is also lower than average.
Please some one answer me i want buy a small phone i have note5 but it's abig phone and use it in my job is very hard i want buy z5 compact but when i read many opeanion that says it have very problem now please some one answer me i buy iphone se or z5 compact?

I changed to iphone and the SE is so superior in every way, even battery is better in real life use, much more powerful and yet no bad heating, better display (color temperature of current xperias is a big joke) and of course true premium build plus maximum
control over app permisions and privacy. Finally, signal quality, no phone bests SE in LTE reception quality, signsl is stable where others cant lock on. As a compact phone enthusiast i can confidently state that there is only one premium compact phone on the market, the SE.
People are saying the X Compact is superior in every way to the Z5c except for 4K video which the X Compact doesn't offer. Have you all gone mad? No way I am ditching 4K video. Otherwise, I would have just kept my Z1c. And don't get me started on the Open Camera app. That piece of junk can't even do simple stuff like change the ISO. My quick test on my Z5c was way overexposed even after adjusting the brightness to the lowest setting. Clearly, camera performance is a combination of the image sensor and the software. I am sticking with Sony's app.
Hate The Phone. This is my 3rd z5c. And screen cracked again because of heating. Sony wont give me new Phone.i refuse to pay a third time for repair. Never dropped any of my Phones. Battery last 50 min when playing pokemon go. Phone is 3 months ord. Cracked when it got warm playing.dont but it. Its useless and Sony is not good doing business With.
I have been using sony xperia z5 compact for around 10 months now:
1. Compact size that can be used by one hand and hidden ina pocket with comfort
2. Very good camera
3. Convenient fingerprint location
1. Software issues. Apps may crash regularly.
2. Terrible customer service. I had serious software issues with the unit that I bought and it took long time till they replaced it for me. I had to factory reset it three times and I had to do many reboots to the unit that was obviously not ok. I had to fight with the customer service to get them to replace it at the end.
3. The device becomes hot if used extensively
ying zu, 01 Dec 2016no becouse by just handling the phone in your hand you feel is better than the z5 compact"feel" hahaha! I agree that the Z5 series is better than X series. Think about it. Why would Sony come up with XZ in the same year of the X series' release? I mean, "accidentally" drop both phones in water at the same time and you will instinctively save the X first. And even comparison to the competitors (LG, Samsung, etc..)per time of release, Z5 wins compared to X. I rest my case that the Z5 series is better than X series.
Xperia User, 18 Nov 2016Can't we all just be friends and unite to the fact that this phone is better that the X Compact?no becouse by just handling the phone in your hand you feel is better than the z5 compact
Generally very good phone. The GSM review pros and cons mostly reflects my experience although I have had two additional cons above and beyond what the GSM review noted.
1) the battery life is not as good as tested. It is not horrible but it is also not as good as my Z1 Compact with the same apps.
2) It can get temporarily sluggish for some unknown reason. Some users have speculated that the chip software is not well integrated but that is just speculation. It will be blazing fast and then slow down and struggle with simple stuff for 1/2 hour. My Z1 compact with the same apps doesn't exhibit this type of variability.
