Have a lot of problems with overheating and pocket calls. Not tried that on a phone before
LiviuMarin, 22 Oct 2018Can anyone tell me if the power button being on the side is causing them to accidentally turn ... moreIt is not a problem I have ever had. 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

No battery issue, no bluetooth issue, no wifi issue, no lag, just perfect.
I've never had the overheating issue. Mine is more than two years old now and I'm still happy with it.

This issue is not resolved properly in this phone or chipset. Compare that to e.g. XZ1 with its always-cold 835...
z5c was not so great overall, benn using Sony phones for a decade,
get x compact
Aweful experience with this one. Overheating is one thing that I heard the most and I experienced that too. Just a few moment of filming is enough to make it go burning hot and automatically shut down. The body feels like cheat plastic and breaks very easily. The screen shattered after sliding a 30cm height and hitting the floor face down. Not at all the easy and durable option they claimed it to be. The speed at which it takes orders is another thing that put me off. See something nice you want to take snapshots of? Forget about it! It takes at least a few seconds for the phone to open the camera and get ready to shoot. Another second or two to focus and eventually take a blurry shot of the scene that's most likely no longer there. Overall, I'm getting more and more disappointed with what Sony is doing as the years pass. Once Sony was the guarantee that you get your money's worth, now ... it's just a gamble as they seem to care less and less about the quality and practicality of their products and more about useless looks.

Been using this phone for 2.5 years. Last week I bought xz2c. Really great phone but kinda bulk thick heavy hard to hold in one hand. Sold it and went back to my beloved tiny z5c. Size of this phone is unbeatable. Every thing else is not great but ok. I live in hot country and the phone still performing flawlessly. The only two things I wish to change is Ram and Internal memory.
If you have the time, technical skills and don't mind a decline in camera quality, install LineageOS to bump the OS to 7.1.2 with the latest security updates and get a CPU governor like Kernel Adiutor. Tweak the settings to favor battery like over performance and either underclock all cores or disable the BIG cores. Now you have a phone that will never overheat and will breathe new life into it. Honestly the major limiting factor of this phone is the 2GB of RAM.
Yes this phone has it's flaws, but with a little bit of tweaking it is a cheap and reliable workhorse.
for you guys thinking of buying this smartphone, I gotta say DONT DO IT! the main reason is OVER HEATING.....I only browsing the web for 5min, and it started heating up like 40 degree..., the overheating issue really bug me ,I tried z3 compact before and the over heating problem exist as well, I will never buy a sony phone unless it doesn't heat like crazy...
I've been using this phone 4 years straight. It's my all time favorite phone. I keep it in my pants pocket, and at times I have to check to make sure it's there because of it's size and being so lightweight. I rinse my phone with soap and water when it gets grimy and it's been working as if it's still brand new. I wish it received android 8.0. I'll be upgrading to the XX1 compact in a few years however. Highly recommend the Z5 compact! Great if you're tired of having a 5-5.5 inch phone and you want something compact, yet powerful and has good battery life.
