Have this phone for 2 days. I've comed from g357fz. Fingerprint scanner is outstanding and speed but the most good surprise was that it has a string hole. Barely wait to get one!
A minor dislike is that it getting warm and hope to get accustomed without removable battery.
Coming from TouchWiz, I find its interface harder. Exp: I Bluetooth tether all the time so when I want to tether on this phone I have to do it with a minimum of 5 clicks, meanwhile with touchwiz I had it done with 2. Major dislike!!!
You should make separate entry for z5c US version as they removed fingerprint sensor..see this:
Guezt, 15 Jan 2016Turn the phone off. Saves energy as well.You really don't have a Z5. It have stamina mode and it is the best way to save battery.

This phone is amazing. Snapdragon 810 is a strong performer in this device, and it stays cool and quick. Battery is strong, multiple background apps, torrents etc all running and I still have over 1 day battery life.
The detail in the 23mp photos is incredible - even after uploading to facebook to images are razor sharp.
What a garbage phone! After reading the reviews and looking at the specs, I had such high hopes for this phone, but it is the WORST phone I've ever purchased. Quality is abysmal. I've had it for one month and the screen has separated from the body of the phone! It still works, but the camera and top speaker no longer work. The back glass is EXTREMELY fragile and cracked while the phone was in my pocket (but I imagine the separated screen makes the phone more fragile).
The phone has been laggy and slow since the first week, often freezing up completely whenever it connects to bluetooth. The back of the phone gets incredibly hot. I've owned androids for years and work in IT, so I know all about managing apps, but even doing that will still result in laggy performance. The battery life is not very good, likely due to the heat management issue.
But there are some upsides: The phone is the perfect size for my hand (and I'm a big guy). The camera was great when it worked. It's waterproof and the fingerprint scanner on the side is a great touch. If this phone was built with the quality of a Samsung or Motorola, it would be one of the greatest phones on the market. Sadly, Sony's execution does not match up with their ambition.
don, 08 Jan 2016Samsung j7 is the better option for u. I am using since 2 months. No hang no lag.Such a midrange will get slow and lag after 1year.
