Anonymous, 08 May 2016And, battery life is better on Compact.I use mine alot & I charge it twice a day.
I have been FB'ing, Web surfing & listening to music for the last 45 mins on the train & i'm down to 73%.
In comparison, my old iPhone5 would've been on 20 some thing by now. Lol
But the whole "2 day" battery life that was advertised, seems like a myth, even if you use the battery saving features.
Anonymous, 08 May 2016Hi!
Can somebody help me choose between Z5C and Z5... I like the small (that is the smaller... moreTo me, it seems like the Z5C really suffers by only having 2Gb of Ram.
That & being crammed into a smaller chassis are the only things I can think of that are causing all the problems I have had with 2 different Z5C's.
I can't comment on the heat differences, my Z5C gets pretty hot at times, but after my experiences, I would say steer clear of the Compact, unless you really MUST have a Z5 & the size is that important to you.
Or be like every one else & buy a Samsung.
I just upgraded (hopefully) to a Samsung S7, but haven't used it yet, so can't give opinions.
On paper though & in reviews I've read, the S7 beats the Z5 in nearly everything, so by that alone, the S7 will slaughter the Z5C.
A few guys at work have all bought Samsungs & the S7 looks great.
Danny, 07 May 2016Preach Brother! Although it's not a troll.
I've had the Z5C since it's release in Australia.
Last night I finally bought a Samsung S7.
Haven't opened it yet & i'm writing this on my Z5C... But I'm so over this phone.
The first one lasted 6 days.
It lagged, crashed, over heated & shut itself down. Fair enough, teething problems, a lemon, just bad luck... I chucked a wobbly & got a brand new replacement.
Now 6 months later, I've been fighting with my Telco about how dodgy the Z5C is.
Apparently it's my fault, my Sd Card must be faulty, it must be corrupt data on my phone, it's they way I have it set up... Etc.
But the fact of the matter is, every day I need to clear the cache because apps stop working, it runs hot, notlike my other one, but it gets hot, it crashes, in all sorts of ways & when it does it spits up "blah blah blah has unfortunately stopped working" with an option to report, wait or close. In the last few weeks it has started randomly turning itself off & restarting for no reason, one of those times failing to restart & I had to do a hard reset.
In every day use, the phone will lag & struggle every now & then, for no apparent reason.
Games I use to play on my IPhone5, seem to struggle on this, with lag & jerks in frame rate, or huge loading times, then if someone sms's me or calls while I'm playing, the phone freaks out, lags to an almost complete stop, or just crashes.
I like the phone, but it would be fantastic if it ran properly.
Hopefully my Samsung S7 experience will be better, cause so far, my biggest regret is leaving Apple.
Nice work Sony, using it 6 months and happy with it. So far I dont even thinking to change phone.
I am confused between the z5c and ghe iphone se ..they are both really fast and have good camera but my only fear is that the se might be a little small in screen size
i think this one is good but i notice while in my hand its heats up but not overheat. its normal, every android has the same issue especially on heating. if you really want that not heat up go to basic phone. to make sure that every android in a safe condition we must control first our self to NOT abuse them. overall, i guess, i luv this phone.
Can somebody help me choose between Z5C and Z5... I like the small (that is the smaller size of Compact) but I do have real need for dual sim model in Z5, and I have to admit that I'm not big on plastic sides of Compact, but I could live that. So it boils down to heating. Does Compact heat less then Z5. Thanks!
P.S. Only this two phones are of interest to me and the price between these two doesn't play a role.
Is x series new lock screen and wallpapers included in the z5 compact marshmallow update?
Anonymous, 05 May 2016hi every body...Does the camera noise at night??This is one of the best camera
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2016Hi Planing to buy Z3 or Z5C , what do you say which one would be better Stay away from the z3, the glass back plate is super fragile, which sucked as it was also slippery, but otherwise i really loved what it could do as a phone
