Kevin, 09 Oct 2015Anyone here with this z5c experience overheating issue? I'm considering to get this phone in Y... moreno overheat issue so far, tried taking photos and capturing 1080p60 and 4K video with steady shot enabled, similar to Z3c. I have both Z3c and Z5c.
awi11, 19 Oct 2015Any z5 compact users or those who bought the phone already please update us hows the phone is.... moreI have both Xperia Z3 compact (used for a year) and Xperia Z5 compact (just bought 2 days) currently. I don't have any experience in overheating so far, the body and internal temperature is almost the same as Z3 compact - I just had overheat issue with Z3 compact once, after recording 20 minutes 1080p60 video under super sunshine, otherwise, the Z3 compact is pretty much cooler than most Android phone. The Z5 compact is more responsive than Z3 compact (for me Z3 compact is already very fast), and the finger print sensor is fantastic, extremely fast! I tried the demo unit in a local Sony store a few times - including video capture in 1080p60 & 4K H.265 with steady shot enabled - before buying it in another local store, I do recommend buying it and I'll continue test it and see if there're any problems may have. Hope this quick summary may help you a bit on making decision.
My experience on Sony Xperia: acro S, V, Z, Z1, Z3 compact, now Z5; I think I can claim that I know the up and down side of the flagship Xperia family.
Any z5 compact users or those who bought the phone already please update us hows the phone is.... has sony fixed the overheating issue on the snapdragon 810 already? A lot of bugs in the phone like the m5? Does is really take wonderful pictures? Is laggy at all? PPlease tell us....

Last time I looked in the mirror, I can only see a business man!
James, 13 Oct 2015Just tried it. Good speaker, quite loud. But really plain sad design, big bezel, very laggy in... moreScreen too dark because adaptive display is enabled. Lag because software is bugged and you must reset it. Price is high I agree. But galaxy s6 is really cheap because it isn't selling as much as Samsung's expectations.
Blings, 16 Oct 2015Thanks for the detailed review buddy, I wanna ask about the phone body? Is it all plastic? Eve... moreThe back in Z5 compact is made of glad, exactly like the Z3 compact, I dont know if its a different more resistant glass, but it is glass. At pics, it gives the impression that it is plastic, but in real life you understand it without touching it, you can tell simply looking at it.
Sony mostly adressed the fingerprint magnet issue that haunted Z3c, anyone worried for the glass, can buy tempered glass protection, or use a case.
The back glass is like a winter window, in real life it takes exactly the color of the side plastic, so everything looks symmetric and elegant thats why I said it is not as bad looking as it looks at pics. However the looks in Z3 compact for me is top notch and beats Z5 compact, hands down. Also the battery in Z3 is much better than it is in Z5. Overall i wouldnt recommend you to upgrade to Z5. The only major advantage is the 32gb internal space.
Unless you dont play +3gb games like Real Racing 3, it is likely that you will be dissapointed, the looks and the battery are a step back and once you are used with such high standards, Z5c will feel like a compromise. For every other user the Z5c is the obvious choice over Z3c...
yes, Z5 Compact is OCTA-CORE
Quad-Core 1,5 GHz Cortex + Quad-Core 2 GHz Cortex = Octa-Core Snapdragon 810
AnonD-448830, 16 Oct 2015Guys.. it says Quadcore in few webites(like gsmarena) and in some other sites.. it says Octaco... moreThanks for the information. I started searching and I found information on the Net that the problem indeed existed and it efficiently prevented me from buying it. And it was not because of mechanical shock, but due to overheating, so even the best cover would be of little help here.
AnonD-448830, 16 Oct 2015Guys.. it says Quadcore in few webites(like gsmarena) and in some other sites.. it says Octaco... moreSnapdragon 810 = Quadcore + Quadcore = OCTACORE
Xperia Z5 Compact use Snapdragon 810 processor
so, it is an Octacore Phone
Guys.. it says Quadcore in few webites(like gsmarena) and in some other sites.. it says Octacore..?? Im confused ( '-')
Aspros, 09 Oct 2015I got it! The phone delivers without a headset, but with a screen protector.
The plastic fra... moreThanks for the detailed review buddy, I wanna ask about the phone body? Is it all plastic? Even the back of the phone? I have Z3C for a month now and I fear breaking the back glass, so please tell me is it glass in Z5C or plastic?
Considering to upgrade somehow, do you recommend?
Teddybear, 14 Oct 2015And I am most interested if the cover glass tends to break up, just like in case of Z3 Compact.i have z3C and the glass dont "break it" if u drops in some ways it will crack eventualy, just buy a 1$ cover for 500$ phone and u will be OK.

the Atutu get high score, so the only problem is you.
Just tried it. Good speaker, quite loud. But really plain sad design, big bezel, very laggy in all menus, gallery and camera. Screen too dark. For the price of S6 edge now ? No thanks...
TooM, 12 Oct 2015Sharp Aquos Mini (or SHL24) is a 4,5 " phone... 1080p, 487ppp, Snapdragon 801 and waterproof.... moresharp aqua mini with 487 pixel and 1080p is a very good display but endurance must very weak, I know you will never buy it，because you already said it only for Japan, so why mention it?
