i`ve reading about "revision" of this phone, anyone know how to chek what version is the smartphone, sorry bad english, i hope you can help me............. other thing, what about the fingerprint reader, is fast as the iphone?? tks.
this is the best, simple (4 inc), fast phone that I have. Owned mid samsung phone in the past and very slow.
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.

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.
