Sony sucks everything about Sony is lame phone built in stock UI no way installing CM in this freaking phone, look at OnePlus they have a built in cyanogen OS operating system allow you to theme stock android without flashing any CM ROMs.
AnonD-597107, 13 Oct 2016yeah, my battery drains. lasts 16h topsMine is already Android 6.0.1 when I got it. I have heating problem, and the battery is awful. My previous Z1C was a lot better.
AnonD-593912, 06 Oct 2016Have you experienced poor battery life ever since updating to 6.0.1?yeah, my battery drains. lasts 16h tops
I have been waiting for ages to upgrade and finally thought the Z5c would do...not too big!!
...and not an iphone.
I am VERY pleased. nice size (a teeny bit smaller would be better) and awesome functionality.
fine grained handling of apps for controlling power and data use.
a beautiful bit of kit. over 3 days battery life doing all I want and need.
z5 compact xperia should buy or galaxy s6?
Which phone is better - Z5 Compact or iPhone SE?
This smartphone is perfect for me. Good battery, camera, waterproof, compact, fast charging, but no dual SIM.
It's a 4,6 inch smartphone with a body that’s as small as that of a 4 inch which is same as my old Xperia M.
Dreamer, 07 Oct 2016After almost one year of use I regret buying this phone. My old Z3 was way better and faster, ... moreSomeone is clearly dreaming if they think that the Note 7 catching fire and potentially burning down their house is an upgrade from the Z5c. Also Samsung has halted production of the Note 7 since even the replacements are catching fire.
Dreamer, 07 Oct 2016After almost one year of use I regret buying this phone. My old Z3 was way better and faster, ... more??? You regret on buying z5 compact because z3 compact was better, okay acceptable, but you want to sell z5 compact then buy galaxy Note 7, this doesn't make any sense, why do you have a compact smartphone and another before if you have no problem to buy a large smartphone like Note 7?
After almost one year of use I regret buying this phone. My old Z3 was way better and faster, It was actually the best mobile phone I've ever owned. I'm planning to sell it and go for the Note 7

Now that the X Compact is out, the reviews meh, and the design aesthetic barf, I predict that the Z5 Compact will increase in price as supplies dwindle. The X Compact is clearly a mid-level phone in a small and atrociously ugly form factor—a major departure from the Z series compact models which did not compromise on internal specs or styling. Probably the biggest disappointment is no more water-resistance/proofing. Poof! Gone in an era when Samsung, Apple and others have finally caught up to Sony. To be fair, Sony has taken a beating on over-heating and water proofing issues. I don't think Sony clearly thought through the fact that when a phone leaves the factory it may be water-proof, but after being dropped, bumped and abused, that water-proofing gets compromised, yet Sony is still on the hook. To their credit they replaced my Z1 Compact for free, no questions asked. As a result, I no longer purposely get my phone wet, but it is nice to know that a little accidental water won't fry it.
This is a strange place to be in. Ever since I bought my Z1 Compact several years ago, I have only felt FOMO with the frenetic pace that Sony was releasing newer models. Now, I just feel disappointment. Looks like I will be staying with the Z5 Compact for a while. It's all good though. I love my Z5c and it really will take something special before something new comes along to make me want to upgrade.
Asaf Kessler, 03 Oct 2016don't ever buy these phone!!!! I had the z3c, it was very good, but after I changed to the z5c... moreI cant agree more with you, my wort invesment yet. Its not worth the money and the z3c its at least 2 classes ahead of z5c on every point of view
don't ever buy these phone!!!! I had the z3c, it was very good, but after I changed to the z5c I started to have many many problems - slow as hell, no battery life as sony said there is, and full with bugs. I have already made two factory resets and it didn't help. do your self a favour and don't get sony's mobile phones.
AnonD-586076, 01 Oct 2016well, i love this phoneAnd so do I, great phone, I brought 2, the new sony phone ain't so good!
was a good phone until marshmallow update Do Not buy this phone until sony fixes these major issues . after waiting for 12 months for this i am very dissapointed . seems like sony is determined to lose its mobile buisines
khaled elrachidi, 20 Aug 2016z5 compact z5 compact for sure!
well, i love this phone
phone is great... just cpu and gpu are overheating... good for like 3-4 hours of pokemon go or 2 days of normal usage lets say half hour speaking and 2 hour internet daily... battery could be better i guess... z3 and x compact are better here i guess but CPU is much more powerfull in z5 than in any other small phone.... its good to have a powerbank on longer trips
