dean, 18 Jul 2017worked great for first 6 months then very very slow - camera would kick me out as i take a pic... moreUninstall junk apps you don't need and disable services. Check your average memory usage in settings, I bet it is near full constantly ~1.8GB. This phone only has 2GB of memory which is borderline these days on Android 7. But cutting down on the junk will make it a lot faster again, get it down to 1.4-1.5GB.
In some ways a great phone v. good front camera photo/video quality, but grinds to a halt in memory and storage and struggles to mount SD cards at times too.
It also gets very hot and although charges quickly does loose charge quickly too.
I have a Z5 compact for last 18 months. Just a pleasure to own and use it! Has had no issues and use the camera a lot. Android upgrades were also easy. All-in-all probably the best smart phone I ever had.
worked great for first 6 months then very very slow - camera would kick me out as i take a picture and record a video etc, good camera but thats about it ! when it works
I do have a Sony Xperia z5 compact for 2 years.
For 2 months I have issues with this phone. He s overheating, just browsing.. And works slowly sometimes.
It is a shame for this powerful spec's.
Maybe is the last version of Android, I don't know but I hope they fixed...
I had two Sony Z compact, with last one to be the Z5. Both of them after 2 years use (without any problems) have start having serious issues with battery drain, I have changed batteries, did all updated but problems weren't solved. I had change them. Really sad !!
I've bought my white Z5 Compact at 5th of february 2016 & till now by daily usage there isn't any issues with it Sony like.no.other
I already got the Nougat 7.1.1 update (32.4.A.0.160) and it is working smoot and fine. I really love the specification of this Z5 compact. Not always a powerful phone has to be bible size.

For me personally, I don't want a high-end phone with large dimensions, the Xperia Z5 Compact fits easily in my pocket, it's with very good camera quality and it's a compact high-end gear phone. Nice!
MrGrumpy, 28 Jun 2017The X Compact is not waterproof, has an ugly plastic shell and looks worse too. So the choice ... moreIts based on ur opinion. If u want better performance get XPERIA X COMPACT. If u need waterproofing, get XPERIA Z5
xXENDER FREAKXx, 23 Jun 2017Buy XPERIA X COMPACT is more worth it. This XPERIA Z5 COMPACT overheats because of the chipset... moreThe X Compact is not waterproof, has an ugly plastic shell and looks worse too. So the choice is between:
- a faster waterproof phone that looks / feels great and can make you toast when it warms up
- an uglier phone that's not waterproof, doesn't feel as good but has a better battery life and an extra 1GB RAM
This phone definately is waterproof. Although I would not reccomend doing it, I once took this phone by accident down to 20m for 45 mins, still works fine.
epn0811, 22 Jun 2017worth if I upgrade my z3c to z5c?Buy XPERIA X COMPACT is more worth it. This XPERIA Z5 COMPACT overheats because of the chipset so the newer one doesn't heat up like this. Plus the newer one have an extra 1GB of RAM, which equals to 3GB RAM. It is much more snappier and smoother than this phone.
