Whats so terrible about this phone since the Z5c fans are so active in the iPhone SE threads? I usually dont visit outside iPhone comments threads but i had to see why Z5c owners have so intense interest in the SE. So what is it thats bothering these Sony owners?
I read a little here and i see users complain about overheating, bad camera, poor battery, extremely bad sunlight legibility and so on, i can see why youre unhappy but not why you hate the SE that has none of these problems. Get well guys, i had many Xperia so i know the traumas youre going through, justhang in there, the next update will NOT fix it, i promise.
have this since January. I got it for ergonomi, performance and waterproof.
Nice phone for the size so here's a comparation with my old phone g357fz.
E5823 lower signal 📶 and switches often from 3g to 4g
Initial Rom got me 70000 score in antutu.
After update the score lowered. So much processing power but can't use it except if you live at the Pole. Heat management lowers CPU speed.
Camera night shots are awful on 🍭.
+ I miss TouchWiz. The interface is so harder to use, like for blutu tethering I have to touch the screen 4-5 times to enable it, the drawer is only available in orizontal scroll, etc.

I'm still wondering if i should buy z5c or s6.i want a phone with a battery that can last a day at a moderate use.
Do we still have settings of Original sound enhancement in Music player after root?
Can someone please tell how's the phone after months of use?.. I own one and I'm not satisfied with the battery.
Great phone for the most part. Battery is pretty good. Doesnt get hot when using hotspot, battery lasts when using it as well. Love the small size and classy design. Waterproof feature is nice, used it in the rain without worrying about it. Charges fast as well. Overall I am pleased with it, but there are two main issues.
Screen visibility in sunlight is terrible, phone is pretty much useless if you're outside. I have a blackberry passport and man, that screen is so much better.
Camera is overrated. The digital zoom sucks, zoomability on pictures is abysmal. I have a lumia 1020 and it blows this camera out of the water. It does take quick photos, and slow motion/4k is nice. There are a lot of features as well. But for landscape pictures, night pictures, or zooming in on pictures, it sucks. I bought it to take pictures of my dogs since they move around a lot, and it works better than the lumia 1020 (had long shutter delay), but quality is not what I expected.
The audio capabilities and features are amazing, best sounding phone I've had, wired or bluetooth.

Friends, the only solution to save battery life is to root your phone and slow down the snapdragon processor to 900 mhz.. It worked fine for me and now I have 3 days stand-by or 1 day of heavy Internet use
i know sony is good quality. i have zr and z2 and they are nice to use but now i need to upgrade and i think this one z5 is the best for this year.
Cute,well built compact phone,waterproof really good,battery a bit less,6.0 upgrade makes it faster no more hang...
AnonD-515653, 23 Mar 2016its not lag anymore at 6.0Did you check your Memory (RAM) after the update? i got some hangs, i found an average of 100MB only free!
Jo, 21 Mar 2016Hey is it true that it's laggy? And can we use the fingerprint?its not lag anymore at 6.0
