For obtaining Facebook and line message notification you have to make settings in power management section. I tried and succeed.
Anyway, I am going to buy Z3Compact now. Other than the camera is there any other significant difference between the 2 ?
I am tired of waiting for Z5Compact to be released in India. The people in Sony Gallery did not even kno that it exists. had to explain them that ther is Z5Compact just like Z3Compact. What a bunch of noobs !
I won't get any international warranty or repair services either since people will have no training to repair this phone.
My Opinion after using this phone since November 2015.
- It's compact.
- Battery life is pretty good.
- Picture Album has "Places".
Pretty nice to know where your picture has been taken around the world map.
- Any Music you have can be update with album art image and info.
- When you zoom in a picture. It take a few milliseconds until the picture is sharp.
- The phone does heated up more than normal.
- The phone lag as hell from time to time.
- The phone randomly reset it self. with red blinking light.
- No Facebook or LINE message notifications.
- Snapseed app 70% can not save photo.

The best attractive features of this phone is the compact size only. If you prefer hard to find easy handling size phone with great specs and camera rather than xxx PLUS or xxx NOTE or 5" xxx mini. The problem is with the snapdragon 810 which made the phone overheat and overpriced. I hope sony will produce midrange compact phone model without waterproof features and cheaper midrange processor. I know once u used bigger phone u will find hardly to go back to smaller phone, but carrying a 5.5 ~ 6" phone in your jeans pocket wasn't cool at all.
Do not buy this phone unless your right hand is really cold. It overheats like crazy. It is also heavy, bulky and looks way better on specs than it does in practise. Again, unless of course, your hand needs warming. I have had good experience with Xperia previously, and with Samsung mini and Huawei P6 & P7. This one, though, does not deliver. And having to charge every 6 hours, and watching the battery percentage drop as I watch is disconcerting and I would prefer that my vendor exchange this phone for something more performant.

The first days were dissapointing, with a bad battery autonomy, and the phone appears to heat a lot with any app on, even the not too edgy ones... The photos are not so good either, and the uncovered charging dock makes me fear the unability to go underwater except in an accident !
My screen got broken as my phone fell from my pocket, making it impossible for me to use it for a while, and a friend gave me its samsung S5 new : I was much happier with it.
Now my phone is repared but I'm not using it, I'm going to check if some patchs came in to solve these problem, but I'm trying to sell it anyway.
In the other hand, a friend of mine has it as well and is really content of it.
But obviously I think the phone is not worth its high, high price.

But im afraid there are so many bad... moreI bought one in January 2016, it does have flaws, the heat if you playing game, the restart without warning(without even touch the phone!), the battery just doing fine fine but not superb. i am truly honest..buy it only if you don't care about details i mention above. Don't let other people decide whether u buy or not, it's your money, ur sweat is on it..if the shop let you try first make sure to try 'playing high end games' and see whether the heat is acceptable to u or not..and don't forget to watch the battery..
Hey guys. Im planning to buy the z5c because of its specs. But im afraid there are so many bad comments about this phone. Does this phone worth the price? Share your experience with this phone.
Many thanks for your feedback.
Super low resolution again form Sony in z5.They are absolutely shameless and a miserable 2gb ram lol.Avoid this phone like the plague until they give you the specs that you pay for.
Emir Zarith, 14 Jan 2016tell me more about speaker on this phone....does it really performs louder than Z3C....Yeah it is definitely better than Z3C, but in general if I were you and I already owned a Z3C, I would've wait for a more stable, less laggy ROM.
