One of the most disappointing smartphones I've ever had. After having a nice relationship with the Xperia Z3 Dual, I decided to try the newer Z5 Dual. Epic fail. A short-acting battery, a bad display and a poor main camera - macro not exist. Subsequent system updates only made the matter worse. I do not recommend this model.
Great phone. However, mine lost connectivity to the mobile network. No help so far over 2 months down the line
I am using since November 2016 and facing a main problem for over heating. While charging, while using mobile data and I cannot shoot video more than 2 minutes. So this phone is bad in shooting, other options like after 1 year I am facing the problem of battery, it is showing 11 - 16 hrs of usage when standby, but in normal usage it is getting 4 hrs maximum. So decided to change this phone

Good smartphone that I bought in December 2015 and have been using since January 2016. The problems are:
1. Overheating that has now split it permanently open in April 2018. I need to replace it but will still go for Sony for their quality and innovations.
2. Battery life runs down fast on usage but well preserved if on standby. Not good for long usage without frequent charging.
3. Once you put a screen cover the image of caller will not appear again.
4. Shuts down occasionally without warning when I am playing electronic Scrabble game with it.
I bought the BOND 007 edition of the phone. Paste 007 on something and I might buy it. I loved the camera, but not the battery or the way the phone would heat up. If you can find one super cheap get it. Otherwise, save your money.
