this phone is great!...camera; music; speed; memory; in a small package that fits your hands perfectly...
Had my z5 compact and used it to take photos underwater for 3min. (swimming pool) suddenly my phone died. Then prior to that i already tried it and it was still good.
I made sure that the flip was intact with spigen transparent case. Now, it's still dipped in a huge plastic with rice. Hope it would turn on the next day!! Whew!
Very good phone, I have changed from Xperia Z1 :
++++ Size and weight
+++ Display colours - HD display is more than enough for 4.6''
+++ Charging and side bumpers (thanks Good only one not 3)
+++ Batery life
+++ audio quality speakers (stereo) and headphones audio quality
+++++ 4G TDD bands
++ Camera, still better than Z1, comparable with a cheap compact photo camera
--- overheating in games and on large 4G traffic - due size I think....
Overall I love this phone, I think it's best choice for a compact Android phone

Zerikwan, 26 Apr 2016A 4incher with a 2012 design normally would have no place in 2016 market? I'm sorry my friend... morethe Z1c and the Z5c has the same size , but the Z5c has a bigger screen. The Z1c has bigger bezels that make it the 4.6" as a whole but the Z5c is the same size but has smaller bezels that make the screen size larger but as a whole , they're the same size
kums, 26 Apr 2016can some pls tell, is there any heating issue in Z5c while playing heavy games? or suggest an... moreThis phone isnt such a great choice for gaming but however, world of tanks and gta4 runs great or even amazingly on this phone. and also get an app called "cooler master" it really helps with the heating issues. The main inferno phone is Z3+, Z5c isnt such a inferno itself, but only gets a little warm when using heavily. (Tip! Make sure you get rid of unwanted apps in the multitasking bar/list.( the little box on the right next to the home buttons))
can some pls tell, is there any heating issue in Z5c while playing heavy games?
or suggest any mobile with no heat issues...
Aspros, 09 Apr 2016I dont think that all those SE trolls are Z5c owners, because there arent so many Z5c owners.

I'm sorry my friend, but for people who love compact phone that fit perfectly to hand would still looking for that 4 incher smartphone..
I have iPhone 5, Xperia Z and Xperia E3 and I can say that iPhone 5 fits perfectly on my hand..
Oh man.. I wish Z5c more smaller like Z1c
sorry for my bad english
Erick, 21 Apr 2016I dare to say the sound quality is even better than the Xperia Z5so..wich one has better speaker sound.. Z5c or Z3c?
Z5C is better from compact phones, battery is good, in normal use 2, maybe 2,5 days. I love 1080p/60fps video :o)
I had Z3 compact, 4 months ago i bought Z5 compact. This is a huge step back. Phone is always lagging, sometimes I press a button and have to wait 10 seconds for a response.
Video is bad because after 1 minute the sound starts to lagg after the video. Frames are missing, sometimes for 1 or 2 seconds the picture freezes. All videos are not usable and they look terrible. This is the worst phone I had in years.
And yes, sometimes its hot so I can't hold it.
I bought my wife S4 and now S7, and they are much, much better.
2 gb ram is too little so ram always is full and doesn't keep anything in background, the device constantly overheating even after marshmallow update, camera and sound quality much worsened over z3, ok battery, low quality screen, I'm really really disappointed.. I used to love my z3, why sony why ?
