Anonymous9, 27 Sep 2015Battery should be 3000mAh or higher; that CPU chip is not going to help with battery life.Are you talking to Iphone 6s? z5 compact get 2900mah battery.
Raz, 27 Sep 2015Why such a weak battery? I don't understand the idea of going backwards. Seriously. 540 hours ... moreWhen comparing batteries, look at mAh spec, not those hours. Z3Compact has 2600mAh (more is better), Z5C has 2700mAh.
Wished that it had better processor, screen ,ram nevertheless will be waiting for next compact than going for any other mobile

Standby time actually means nothing. Just take a look at iPhone for example.

According to it, z5 compact has a 3 day battery life.
More amount of Mah doesn't mean longer life.
Battery life depends on so many things, such as display, ram, chipset, etc..
Z5compact certainly have good power backing with 2900mAh battery...!

Z4 compact Z5 compact ? what's going on with the availability in the US
Sony advertises specs and hints at cost but it seems like the 'fountain of youth' - we've heard rumors but the search continues!
What a shitty upgrade, not even worth spending money on. Why does no one make good smartphones anymore that last 3 days between charges like in 2012. Is technology getting worse with time? Or does everybody only want quantity over quality?
I had an Xperia phone long ago but the phone was getting scratches really easily even though it was advertised as "scratch resistive". I wonder if the screen resistivity improved now, how strong is it? That's the only concern that prevents me from buying Sony Xperia phones. I really hate using screen protectors. Otherwise this phone seems pretty good.
1000 USD for a Sony Phone?
Yes the phone is brilliant, but does it worth that money?
I'll buy only for RM 1800
junb2015, 25 Sep 2015 I never criticized the device itself but the long waiting time before releasing their product... moreActually, I prefer Z5 being out of the top daily rating for now just until Sony releases them (and good reviews start coming out). Why? just go to iPhone 6s comment page and see how many 'interesting comments' and replies appear every 30 mins or so. You'll know the rest.
junb2015, 25 Sep 2015 I never criticized the device itself but the long waiting time before releasing their product... moreLet me tell you the Samsung's tricky, they always sale their products earlier than their competitors with grimmick. and trolling at forums to let someone disheartened from Sony. You should be not believe me, but this is what I know/see.
I always refer the official site, if you're interested to Z5 series please contact them and giving your suggestion your view your feedback to help them change their strategy.
Anonymous, 24 Sep 2015Dogmatist, don't simply judge everything please. The Iphone NEVER increase their endurance, b... more I never criticized the device itself but the long waiting time before releasing their product is very BAD. Excitement is gone, as a proof, Z5 Premium used to be on top of the daily rating here, but now is out. I'm almost tempted to buy the Note5 but Samsung wasted it's multitasking capability due to a limited storage. But Z5 Compact is not around, I just keep waiting, waiting and waiting...
Just read a review from the guardian and they said the Z5C managed 3 days battery!
junb2015, 23 Sep 2015None of the Z5 series made it to the top 10 daily rating. All excitement is gone. This is due ... morePopular or not, Sony is still my favorite brand. I recently bought an Xperia C4 and I'm pretty satisfied with it. If I even have a chance to choose a phone to bring home, it's definitely the Z5. Nothing else can melt my decision when choosing a favorite flagship, Sony's phones are just magnificent. Leave the marketing to them and just let people like me to enjoy it in peace.
