[deleted post]I dunno but couldn't wait. I bought mine in the UK. They exchanged my z4 compact for inr 20,000 the new z5 cost me nearly 40,000 and got a VAT refund of nearly 5000. Cutting to the chase it's a fantastic phone. I've used top Samsung and Apple 🍎 phones and I would rate the z5 compact at the top. Fantastic phone

I had the experience z1, I loved it, never had a problem until battery went. Phone was 18 month old. Sent back to Sony and they put in a new one and returned within a week, no charge. Personally I think there customer service was second to none. I've not long ago got the z5 compact, size of phone gets some getting used to, but I love the performance, a real world everyday phone
Hello guys, I just want to ask your opinion on its features the so called "x-reality" should I turn it on? I like how it enhances the overall images and videos the question are.. Does it affect its overall camera performance as well as video and does it drain its battery faster when it turns on?? Thanks for the reply 😄😄

SpecDude, 23 Dec 2015the most relevant android phone nowadays, generally. SD810+HD Screen will run your game smooth... moreBecause that much is enough for a compact device. Sony's RAM management is better than most others so it does not need bigger ram.

Amazing phone. Upgraded from my Xperia Z and it packs so much more power in a smaller phone. Size is perfect for my active live. Easy to take on my mountainbiking, hiking trips. Amazing camera and the sound was a mind blowing experience. Sony really made a winner with the compact phones.

Can't say enough good things about this phone which I have had for 1 week. Folks complaining about price? It's current top of the line. Wait a year or buy a Z3C.
Size is perfect for those wanting a smaller phone. 0 overheating issues. Great battery life (get a full day on a charge) with everything turned on and fairly heavy usage.
Not a huge Google fan, but lack of apps on Windows platform forces me to use Android (Apple products are just not an option). This phone configured will all my Microsoft services is making me forget my old Windows Phones. I like the fairly lightweight launcher. Have it configured with everything I need on 1 panel. Fingerprint unlock works flawlessy.
Camera produces great photos in excellent to good lighting conditions, but falls off in lower light.
If you are in for a high-spec, but smaller phone you will be hard pressed to find a better phone. Money no issue and not contemplating an upgrade from Z3C, I'd say this is a great choice. With money concerns, Z3C may be the better choice. Already have a Z3C? I don't know...My gf's Z3C is going strong after a year. Would probably hold off.

For exemple, for a signal strength of -100dbm in 4G, my Moto G shows 4 bars wereas my z1c shows only 2 bars. So by comparing the bars you'd think that the Z1C has a way poorer reception wereas in fact the signal strength is the same on both devices.

lol @ your battery life :)
overheating... hmmm never heard of it, let me google it, oh wait z1c does not overheat.
Before you reply with a stupid comment :) yes i'm bitter, and shame on you Sony. I am still waiting to upgrade z1c to the new model, but all you release is a plastic fantastic garbage.
I cant wait foir the marshmallo update, it will greatly help the Z5c, against the only thing the Z3cc has over it now (since the price difference among them has evaporated) the standby times, which are going to be even better than the kit kat ones the Z3c was measured.
The overheating issue is really bothering me. It's not the normal overheating that most phones experience from using it for too long. There's no way of me returning it so what can I do to stop this?!
Returned my Z5 compact as the signal was bad indoors! Same network on BB had full signal strength! Even my iPhone 6 (Antenna gate) has 3 bars! Now that's saying something!
i have xperia z3 and i wanna upgrade it. better i choose xperia z3+ or xperia z5 compact?
z5 is too expensive T_T

Z series phones are widely known to be good in battery performance. This shoud not be a permanant problem. & don't confuse warm with hot.
i have a Z3 compact! i love the Z5 but i wont buy it! no NEED!
Z5 Compact unfortunetly looses on the battery length... and just has a lil better camera... and... that's it... mostly... not much of advance from the z3..
still a lot of bashing online! BUT we all know there is people from the competition BEING paid to bash and troll in here to prevent people from buying Sony!
My Z3 compact is the best phone ive ever had in years!!!! it just heats up a lil bit.. thats all!
Z3 and Z5 compacts are the best Sub 5" sizes phones out in the market!
