If you are willing to change OS, the iPhone SE 128gb would be the only "qualified" replacement for the Z5Compact (minus the waterproofing).
Which would be a good upgrade for this phone?, I currently have one but I would like to change it, The requierements I have are: Screen size lower than 5.2 inches, fingerprint scanner, better cameras, specially the selfie one, and a day-long lasting battery. I will appreciate your answers.
The camera is awful no matter what resolution you pick.
Needs to be rebooted weekly or loses signal completely (tested on two different ones, bought in different time frames and in different countries).
I wouldn't recommend it because of the above issues, but I admit I've seen worse.
Anyone having fingerprint reader problems after the Nougat update. Keeps telling me fingerprint hardware has stopped working.
Photos pathetic. Whether I use 23 or 8 mp, compared to LG G4 (hubby's cell), I get fuzzy pathetic pictures.

All the questions you ask (battery life, photo quality, etc) the iPhone SE absolutely shines in! The quality of the device is absolutely amazing and really worth checking out if it's a small phone that your after. As a current iPhone 7 user I'd even go as far as saying the iPhone SE offers the best iOS experience. But in saying that, it also lacks the customisation that android offers.
Biggest difference are the os's. Pick the phone that has your preferred ecosystem.
Is there any possiblities tht sonly will launch this xperia z5 compact in dual sim version?
My Z5c just updated from marshmallow to nougat, the Bluetooth and WI-fi won't open and the battery was drained fast. what should I do.

Have a question, is the device getting security patches updates regularly .. ?
Or are they going to stop with last update for the device .. ?
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2017Which is better z5c or z3 c for camera?Z5C has better camera than Z3C ..
I am trying another route in my quest to find my next "affordable" phone and this time it is the Xperia Z5 Compact vs the iPhone SE. A third choice would probably be the X performance. I feel it is a sensible comparison 'coz of the (almost) similar sizes of both phones.
Heard about some positive reviews of the SE. So, between the two phones which one takes better photos disregarding the actual megapixels and more of the speed, performance and post-processing?
Which one has a louder, more clearer speakers sound output?
And which one is supposed to have better battery life in terms of web browsing and standby time?
sony phones are excellent, i had to choose between huawei p8 like and z5c, i went with z5c, no regrets.

Now I got 2 questions from your experience .. what are the demanding tasks that get the device heated up? and how much heat are we talking about? can't handle the device anymore, have to be left to cool .. or just a bit warm, 40 degrees like?
Second thing, the GPS .. you mentioned that it's not accurate .. I don't need 100% accurate, but like 95% not to get lost while navigating .. :)
But more importantly, how powerful the GPS is ..? as In many locations in my city, if the GPS is not sensitive enough, my phone does not track me .. :(
If you could compare the above points between z3c and z5c, would appreciate it .. :)
thanks a lot ..

Advantages of upgrading: it's faster.
Disadvantages: heats up when performing demanding tasks, had problems with mic (probably my fault), relatively quiet speakers. GPS is s*** if you want high precision.
Actually GPS used to be quite good, but after some update last september/october it just became s***. HAd to buy GPS watch for my runs.
IDK about battery life. Lasts full day if I'm not doing too much internet stuff.
Love the size!!!
