It's not water resistant...do not put it under water specially when the phone display is on...don't waste your money on Z5 series
Do not waste your money on Z5 series...I bought Z5 compact, after only about a minute in pool where half of phone was under water, it's LCD was flickering and suddenly the phone went off...
I like the specs and size of this phone but if it gets so hot like others say, I'm afraid 45 degree heat will loosen the glue holding the glass to the frame.
Andrew, 31 Jul 2016Non-removable battery - means after 1.5 years the phone is dead?Why? You can't buy battery and put it inside when there are not picture for you in manual?
This phone is awesome, great camera, great display, great performance, but this phone is ridiculously hot.
I play some game for few minutes and my phone goes up to 45* celcius.
This is first time I upset for buying Sony phone.
The phone is great but when you use an app for too long it heats up and the phone is sometimes almost burning. Never had this with another phone. The problem is known but still sony should do something about it.
Bogdan T, 28 Apr 2016Speakers are really good. Sounds better than Z 3cThanks
Phone is perfect! Compact waterproof, photos look amazing on its display, camera is great too. A more innovative device than iphone and samsung, all say thephone heats up. i never really experienced. camera? music? headphones? displays? its all SONY! Most trusted brand.
Faf, 25 Jul 2016where is the fingerprint sensor? on a button or something?The fingerprint sensor is on the power/lock button.
Press it once to unlock, then softly puts your finger on it again to trigger the sensor and the device will unlock.
NOT Recommended :
- Glass scratched wihtin 2 weeks despite an existing protection. Discovered after that Son'y protection is to avoid glass shattering and not scratches ... not mentioned clearly .
- Battery is a joke and phone heating like hell for any Photos.
A total AVOID for this model
Don't buy the phone it's a total scum!!!
the camera almost never uses 23 megapixels and when it does the factions are so limited.
it's slow and get's heated up really quickly slowing it down even more...
to add to that sony claims that the phone has ip 68 which is far from trusth as mine got busted after i cleaned it under tap watter and the garanteed was voided
This phone is perfect with it's 4.6'' screen. I hate big screens. BUT, I need a dual-sim! Is there any chance for a Z5 compact dual sim?? is there any new phone coming with 4.5-4.7 screen dual-sim????
Anonymous, 20 Jul 201645K INR its main centric is camera, but do u really need 23 mp camera on a smart phone? Most o... moreIt may not be well known, but Sony uses the 23 MP in the sensor to oversample the image when shooting at 8 MP. The result is the 8 MP images are actually sharper than at 23 MP, and it is easy to test this and see for yourself. Of course, this is only obvious when you zoom in on the pic at like 200% or more. But Sony's implementation is very smart because oversampling is key to making sharp as tack pics. There is no one camera that is best for every situation. But I find my Z5c takes great pics. Of course, I only take pics in manual mode. IOW, taking great pics is more a function of the photog's skills than the camera and lugging around a DSLR just isn't convenient.
bought z5 reburbished Â€379
quality feel about me
camera is awesome
battery really good so far
everything u want in a smartphone
Tanya, 18 Jul 2016When I phone someone, the face shuts down/is off. Where can I change the setting so the "face"... moreThat has been on every touchscreen phone for a decade now it is so you cannot activate anything on screen, if you have been watching TV and see people phoning and screen stays on its because they are pretending to use phone they are not calling anyone. I often see that where they answer a call or make a call on tv and screen is still on it is poor attention to detail
45K INR its main centric is camera, but do u really need 23 mp camera on a smart phone? Most of users use smartphone camera for social media sharing.
Any smart phone with 20+ mp is total waste of bucks.
at this price I can buy a decent androind phone and a marvelous DSLR camer
