Anonymous, 08 Jun 2016Does the Z5 Compact has LED notification light?Yes it is top right on phone and about 2mm across not huge like Samsungs.
If anyone interested "Light Flow" free from playstore can tweak your led to all sorts but it is not exactly complicated to set up there seem lots of settings to get it working to your liking which can feel like a drag.
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2016Does the Z5 Compact has LED notification light?Yes, it does
Had some updates a while back and my wifi went dodgy it seems to loose signal then reappear randomly,, so ,,time to update to MM.
It is such a solid phone but what always amazes me about Sony minis is they cram everything in no skimping. Not only do they waterproof,they add top SOC and micro-sd. Then they give good battery and bright screen. They don't stop with cramming everything in "NO" they fit in a lanyard and base model is decent 32gb. Then it is a 23 MP wide angle cam with proper 4k recording (I have done 29 minutes but ran out of memory at time).This is a big feat of engineering and Sony never get any recognition for it.
So what don't I like? Well I like design of Z3 Compact design better and cam could do better but that is it.
I wish other companys would do proper minis but as only Sony do thats what I bought. Had black one, then yellow but got black this time. Still looking forward to next Nexus and return of Nokia.
I could say that this is a great smartphone. I bought it 4 months ago and it still doing great.
+ Good display,
+ good trouchscreen sensitivity,
+ great MUSIC (God, love the Music apps, Xperia Music Apps is truly masterpiece, guaranteed !). I had compared music apps from other smartphones, and i copuld say that xperia do the best!. It could tweak your sound to enhance the quality of your music. Love it
+ nice and loud speakers
+ Great processors
+ Great camera
+ Awesome durability. (water, pressure, free fall).
- get warmer after 15 mins - 30 mins of using huge processing apps like HD Games (I'd say it's warm, because the i never feel the phone overheat or hotter than my previous phone)
- sometimes it has small remaining RAM, (Lollipop issue, I guess I'll update it to 6.01)
- Mediocre bundled headset, I expected to get Digital Noise Cancelling Headset which is cool
5 months with the Z5C, so happy with it, great camera, great battery, very fast, nice and enough HD display, sometimes gets hot but not too much, I had the issue with the camera lens that become like dirty, but i cleaned the UV protector out and now it's just great again. Some falls and the frame got a little fissure, gotta be more carefull. Really a great phone, I love it.
just update myy z5c to 6.0.1 yesterday.. some changes i noticed:
1. stamina mode is back but not same as in lollipop
2. double tap on home screen to sleep
3. some new icons
4. fingerprint scanner improve a lot
5. ram management also improve ( now i got more free RAM)

First - mine dropped a few times on wooden floor from 1 metre and so far nothing happened
Second - it does get hot on super heavy apps like every other smartphone, maybe except super new ones and galaxy s7. Tho temperature stays maximum to 60 Celsius what is fine for z5compact
Third - my God the camera is just best.fact.

If it's true that the Z5 Compact heats up and slows down, then I don't think I want to get this phone.

I play 5-10 minutes game and it become hot but not that much to make it a big issue. And this phone i suppose it not for game use. Else it is fine and find absolutely no problem with this beast. May be its your particular unit have some issues.
sax, 31 May 2016Most likely your statement is FALSE. You do not even own this device.
Like most people below ... moreSax, obviously you dont understand that the Z5c slows the processor down to make this device cooler, meaning your high powered, fast device, is not fast anymore, and has a overpriced chip in it since it is SLOWED DOWN.
I will gladly send photos of my CRACKED rear glass, but if you do a 5 min google search you will see there are many people with this issue.
Lastly, you sound like a SONY PAID RESPONSE, or a SONY EMPLOYEE. If you are, great, then tell SONY to recall all Sony Xperia Z5 Compacts before one kills someone with a fire...
DjLiLaLRSA, 31 May 2016What a terrible Sony overlook, not only did my Z5 Compact overheat, but it also cracked the ba... moreMost likely your statement is FALSE. You do not even own this device.
Like most people below you that keep bashing SONY devices.
I own this device for 6 months now. Let me tell you some things.
First of all, I am gonna prove that you are lying and you do not own the device.
You even never have passed by it or touched it. I'm pretty sure about this.
SONY uses Snapdragon 810 v2.1. It is Qualcomm' s fixed version of 810.
The other companies didn' t go for the fixed 810 for psychological reasons.
Consumers are sheeps. Companies do know that. As long as they hear something, it's stuck on their head. Ignorant sheeps will hear "SD810" and their reaction will be "You can bake eggs with it". Even without personal experience on it. They heard it and reproduced it. So, it was useless for the companies to announce that all heat problems are gone.
Secondly, it does get warm to hot when playing heavy games, as much as any other smartphone. I challenge you on this. Name the application or the game that you want me to run and I will post here a link with a screenshot of the temparature.
Third, your device's back glass cracked on it's own.
Mine's back glass has decided to go for coffee yesterday. Damn it!
I had to work. I would enjoy that coffee too!
P.S. Come on GSMarena. No. 5 Rule on your Posting rules is:
No bashing - deliberately and repeatedly bashing the same brand
90% of the posts on SONY devices are just like this.
You must find a way to verify the device of those who comment.
IMEI info, receipt info, I don't know. It's getting frustrating.
What a terrible Sony overlook, not only did my Z5 Compact overheat, but it also cracked the back cover, while sitting doing nothing on my bed, which is happening to lots of people all over the world. When i tried to get it repaired i was told it is my fault and have taken it further since there is no damage on the covers. Worst is to fix this 810 CPU issue, Sony has slowed down the phone, meaning the specs on any website ARE FALSE. My Z1 Compact was amazing but now this is a piece of s%^t.
Is front cam f2.4 or 2.0??
Is it better the one found in Sony M4?
Why my Z5 Compact is too slow? from shop it was already with androd 6.0 , a few app was instolled from market ... my previos Z3 Compat and ZR was more better , faster than this !
New Sony user2, 28 May 2016I also got same blank screen effect during calling. Software update didn't solve a problem. Screen goes black when you cover the proximity sensor so you cant accidentally tap the end call...tha is y its normal ..
