And this is even when playing games like Asphalt 8 which have a huge amount of graphics.
My wife has the Z3, a simply gorgeous phone. She initially got one of those wallet type cases for it. But the phone was getting too hot, so she had to take it out and now just has a tempered glass cover on the screen and no case.
I don't have a case either. Instead I have a tempered glass protector for the screen and a clear plastic protector for the back. They were both less than 10 USD. If you have a big thick cover for the phone, that could cause problems similar to how wearing a thick coat in the summertime would make you hot too. Plus cases are bulky and ugly. However, my tempered glass protector is beautiful, resists fingerprints, doesn't scratch, I could go on. It is the perfect addition to my Z5c. I will never use a case again.
I recently experienced my first encounter with the phone wanting to shut down because it was too hot. I was trying to make a video in hot, 100-degree weather, but with the sun beating down on my black z5c, the phone was getting too hot long before I hit the record button.
Otherwise, I have filmed 4K shots as long as 15 minutes without any problems. I think part of the reason for my success though is I have a 128 GB microSD card, and I configured the phone to record all pics and vids to the card versus the internal memory.
To me the microSD card slot is one of the best parts of the phone. 4K video takes up a huge amount of space fast and there isn't a single phone out there that has enough internal memory to handle 4K video imo.

Its best just to let this function be and wake up the screen when needed.
When I phone someone, the face shuts down/is off. Where can I change the setting so the "face" stays alive when I phone?
Terrific in everything
Performance, camera, display, music, size, speed, everything
Good in battery life
The only con is the heating issue, it is not overheatting at all and nothing that u cant bear, but it does sometimes get really warm, occasionally hot.
Month after month, i really started to feel frustrated from this, specially when summer came, to carry this hot in my pocket i really cant withstand anymore, may be i will get any mid-ranger to use till october and then return to z5c in november to carry in my suit, yeah why not!

Although 8 cores, Z5C has lower clockspeed than Z1 compact, makes me (what i feel) longer time to installing app and switching multiple apps. Underclocking Z5C would be nightmare, i think XD. Can software patch possible to solve overheat??
I have just one problem with this phone. Sometimes when i phone the phone screen goes black. Does anyone no why this happen??? I cannot disconnect or nothing . I must wait that the person on other side put down his phone. Then my screen comes on again. Then i restart phone again and then everything is okay for 2 or 3 days again before doing it again. Very frustrating indeed. The phones software is updated to the latest there are.
Just wondering, is it just me or anyone else also get their BABY FINGER "PINKY" get sore/pain from using the phone? Btw, i love this phone a lot! Petfect size for me and lots of great features
Beautiful Phone. Beautiful user Interface (Much better than Samsung) and an Unbeatable Camera. May get a bit toasty at times when streaming a lot, and a very fast GPU, (Snappy 810)
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
yes yes yes I did like the phone but I decided that I Iphoned my Samsung phone and the z5 is proper shocking
Great phone. Any chance of a DUAL SIM version of this phone? How about a stylus (similar to s-pen). I want a small phone and this is the perfect size. Plus removable battery.
hello my friends am now using sony experia Z5 and i dont know the phone will last long
the moment i touch the phone i feel u have touch something
Root your device and find a software to underclock your CPU. I guess this will solve the overheating problems.
Alright guys, thanks to all of you, but what I was saying is that I Never play any video games with my z5c.
For an exemple right now I used to do some snapchat and my phone is Burning...
The app Cooler Master tell me that my phone is at 43.3°c...
I send him to sony assistance it's not normal.
Once again thanks to all of you for your help.

I live Queensland in Australia, and it gets very hot sometimes. But however my Z5c seems to just sit in the 24-30 degrees area. I use facebook and Instagram a lot but the temperature stays the same around 27. But when i go play games like World of Tanks or GTA, it may get a little warm around 30-33. But what i have to say is that Z5c isn't the best choice for gaming but however it's an excellent all-rounder phone. If you want a gaming phone, stick to HTC or keep it simple with Apple. And NOOOOOOOOO not Samsung... The touchwiz UI is really crap. I have used a Samsung before, it lags sooooooo much after like 5 months use. (Galaxy S6). Stick with Sony, its a realiable brand with top quality but may be a bit pricey sometimes. (Damn! i have just wrote an essay)
