Anonymous, 10 May 2017Huawei P10 is a nice phoneI hear you, I'd gladly pay a premium for a small 4.5" Android with flagship specs. Manufacturers are too obsessed with huge brick like slabs with massive battery draining screens. Apart from the Z5 Compact, the only other phone worth considering is the Samsung A3 (2107).
I still have my S4 Mini too and the 4.3" screen is the perfect size.
Owning a z5c 1.5 years on - phone is still great. With its powerful 810cpu, Android 7.0 and 23mp - this phone is going to be relevant for years to come.
Xperia ex-fan, 09 May 2017As of now, Sony has not released any upgraded (replacement) version release. If you are willin... moreAgree! Maybe some minus is se front camera but overall is great, z5c front camera is absolutely georgeus!
I've had my Sony Xperia Z5 Compact now for a year and it has worked just fine. Upgraded twice without problem, now on Android 7. Nice size, slips easily into my jeans pocket. Enough memory and processor capacity for me. The fingerprint sensor work very well. Camera gives good enough images. Indeed a good purchase!
Shame on manufacturers i cannot find a dual sim phone with 4.5 inch screen and 3 gb ram even though i am ready to pay a premium i am stuck with s4 mini and i am waiting from F**ing 2 years to buy a decent phone. if iPhone makes a dual sim will switch to iOS i am fed up with andriod quality and manufacturers. Google will introduce some bug or remove a good feature in every new Android version to re-introduce in the next iteration to bring down user experience down so that they will upgrade when new version comes. Cheap tricks from google. Android manufacturers are flooding the phone market with big screen phones now so that they can introduce bendable phone from 2018 which could be extended to double the screen size when opened like a book. eg : Samsung GalaxyX therefore everyone has to upgrade again coz of the new Fad.That's how these manufacturers are/can sustain revenue growth. Truth is manufacturers cannot push for Hardware performance more than what it is now people are not expecting to watch 3d movies on mobile we can already see limitation on primary camera currently.

If you are willing to change OS, the iPhone SE 128gb would be the only "qualified" replacement for the Z5Compact (minus the waterproofing).
Which would be a good upgrade for this phone?, I currently have one but I would like to change it, The requierements I have are: Screen size lower than 5.2 inches, fingerprint scanner, better cameras, specially the selfie one, and a day-long lasting battery. I will appreciate your answers.
The camera is awful no matter what resolution you pick.
Needs to be rebooted weekly or loses signal completely (tested on two different ones, bought in different time frames and in different countries).
I wouldn't recommend it because of the above issues, but I admit I've seen worse.
Anyone having fingerprint reader problems after the Nougat update. Keeps telling me fingerprint hardware has stopped working.
Photos pathetic. Whether I use 23 or 8 mp, compared to LG G4 (hubby's cell), I get fuzzy pathetic pictures.
Gino76, 02 Apr 2017I am trying another route in my quest to find my next "affordable" phone and this time it is t... moreHaven't used the z5 compact but I did have an iPhone SE before giving it to my mum. All the questions you ask (battery life, photo quality, etc) the iPhone SE absolutely shines in! The quality of the device is absolutely amazing and really worth checking out if it's a small phone that your after. As a current iPhone 7 user I'd even go as far as saying the iPhone SE offers the best iOS experience. But in saying that, it also lacks the customisation that android offers.
Biggest difference are the os's. Pick the phone that has your preferred ecosystem.
Is there any possiblities tht sonly will launch this xperia z5 compact in dual sim version?
My Z5c just updated from marshmallow to nougat, the Bluetooth and WI-fi won't open and the battery was drained fast. what should I do.
KA, 11 Apr 2017Have a question, is the device getting security patches updates regularly .. ? Or are they go... moreNot very regular, but when released are very stable opposed to the updates released by the majority of manufacturers.
