Just upgraded from Z3C to Z5C... Phone really warms up fast during the downloading of apps... When i woke up this morning, did a few minutes of browsing, phone warms up again really quick... I really hope Sony would have a software fix to this heating problem... Otherwise i would regret the upgrade from Z3C... The Z3C is an awesome compact phone.. Battery life is awesome.. My Z5C is heating up quite hot now as I'm typing this comment... 😢 it also rebooted by itself 3 times today.. 😨
awi11, 19 Oct 2015Any z5 compact users or those who bought the phone already please update us hows the phone is.... moreHi guys, I've bought the Z5 on 27 the Oct and its just fantastic... No overheat issues. Camera is awesome.. Performance is buttery smooth and the experience is Sony . just go for it. No heat issues at all
Dual heatpipes, 04 Nov 2015Dxomark is the realistic, but sams and Ifruit wouldn't believe, why don't you ask them to face... moreIn the first place they wouldn't accept that use the Sony sensors on their phones on the first place
Z3 compact user, 06 Nov 2015Just hold it properly mate and you won't drop it. :D
I know, it can happen to anyone anytime ... moreConsider some game need shaking or motion turning the phone, it is better have attach eyelet lanyard to prevent phone drop off.
And the DC always have the eyelet lanyard for easlier grip the device.
Then at the swimming pool, water easily splash to the phone and become slippery, so the eyelet lanyard is the best way to protect your phone..
Z3 compact user, 06 Nov 2015Why do SONY still do these ugly lanyard eyelet? It ruins the nice minimalistic design of the p... moreOMG the phone has an eyelet! I so need that.. thats great for girls that dont have pocket any our clothes so you don't drop your phone while dancing.
Z3 compact user, 06 Nov 2015Just hold it properly mate and you won't drop it. :D I know, it can happen to anyone anytime ... moreI too like eyelet lanyard. it does not spoil the show. there is no harm but it is always good to have it for those like to use it. What is the harm having it there. As such I feel all mobile units should have it.
Anonymous, 06 Nov 2015Eyelet lanyard is very nice, while gaming you can play without worry drop off the phone.
Whil... moreJust hold it properly mate and you won't drop it. :D
I know, it can happen to anyone anytime but If you like your phone, you will be careful with it. Just my opinion.;)
Eyelet lanyard is very nice, while gaming you can play without worry drop off the phone.
While taking photos it can prevent drop off too example like the usually Digital Camera do.
While playing at the pool it could also safety from drop off from hand.
While in the bedroom or car, it also can be use to hanging
Why do SONY still do these ugly lanyard eyelet? It ruins the nice minimalistic design of the phone. No one is using them anyway. I don't know anyone using it.
AnonD-456605, 04 Nov 2015come on be realistic please!!!Dxomark is the realistic, but sams and Ifruit wouldn't believe, why don't you ask them to face the realistic?
Can anybody tell me about the battery life. Is it better or similar or not so good as compared with Z3 compact?
Anyone tell me plz, how is pic quality of camera with flash and, is there heating problem?
All I see is fanboy type comments everywhere. I suppose it's bound to happen, however I'd just like to say that I have been swimming, rafting and cliff diving with my phone in my pocket and it still works fine. It sounded a little fuzzy for a couple of mins when I turned the speaker on but otherwise fine. My friend has an iphone 6 and my battery embarrasses that easy peasy. It's all down to preference really as there are so many excellent phones on the market, and yes this is one of them!
For those of you who have reported issues with the camera software, have any of you tried a different camera app such as the official Google/Android one? Was it any better or faster?
wlxgrf, 02 Nov 2015Z5 compact or Z5 ?
how is the Z5c in the hand?

The dimensions are VERY similar between the Z3 compact and the Z5 compact.
I recommend this phone over every other about this size. And according to the photo comparison this site brought, the camera looks better in the compact version than the regular!
Pailan, 27 Oct 2015I wonder if the phone will be plagued by the cracking screen syndrome. It is already repor... morethat is a Sony basher site.no one has reported anything, ok?that siye is full of lies.so stop trilling everyone based on false info.
Z5 compact or Z5 ?
how is the Z5c in the hand?
I've been using the Z1 for 2 years, and don't want to go to a smaller screen, but the Z5c has killer specs in a hand-friendly size.
Kooooool, 31 Oct 2015If they want to sell a small phone for 600 $, Sony should at least make it look good and not l... moreYeah you know what? The Sony Ericsson K800 with that signature Cyber-shot camera with autofocus is at least representing the design of a cellphone that came from 10 years ago. Can you please mention any similarities between that one and the Z5C? At least get the facts right before you post an opinion.
