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!!!
I've been eyeing on this phone since the announcement of the X Compact.
But why is the price of the Z5c still high!?
It's a 2015 phone, for crying out loud!!!

Do not update to nougat.z3 family the best phone out there. Even today.i'm not sony fan boy. The z5,end x family are not that great.also over 'admired".
Now i'm gona root my z3. Miui 7 in it. Best camera and baterry life.
I hardly hear the speakers after i update to the nougat... I didn't reset after the update... What should I do?
Got a z5 compact, basically good. Very handy and really compact, battery life also good.
The only one thing that bothering me is the camera, it always took very long time to save photo image when I take photo with camera.
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2017Since Nougat update the bass thumping from the speakers is huge on my Z5C, anyone else noticed this?Yeah but the speakers bass flarts
Personally, I thought it was good at first, it runs very quickly and is smooth, but it is an incredibly fragile phone. One slight screen crack and the whole phone falls to bits. The camera quality is meh, so if you want a small power phone then look no further.
I need help guys. My z5c bottom part of the screen where the navigation buttons are, isn't working tho if i change the screen to landscape mode the nav button does work. So is the problem the lcd? I have this phone for almost a year and suddenly the problem happened one morning after charging overnight. Thanks for anyone who has answers.

Battery life was already decreased when we got the Marshmallow one but it was bearable, with Nougat, percentages drop in seconds!!!
Battery life seems to be getting shorter after a years use. Touching screen with wet hands sends it into an epileptic fit and gets unbearably hot in a short time. Now the processor is seemingly slowing down and the bottom speaker got wet and failed.
Z3C or Z5C .. ?
I know that z5c is faster, android 7.0, and better camera .. but z3c has better battery life, and does not heat as easy .. !
I just need some Owners to confirm or deny above points .. especially regarding android nougat performance on z5c .. and the heating issues on it .. ?
Thanks in advance .. :)
