I have been using the device since last august. The battery consumption at times is very fast. screen takes 21% and idel phone sucks about 14%. The phone is not even lasting a full day.
i have updated my sony xperia Z5 dual with nougat latest firmware (32.3.A.0.376)....i have several problems after update, which are :
- fast charging has a new brand now : slow charging
- ringtone volume becomes goddamn suck, its volume is goddamn reduced by sony R&D but suprisingly its alarm and notification are still normal
- that dialpad volume is fucking loud, even far louder than ringtone volume...
- more battery drain
hope sony will fix it soon or else i will unlock this phone and install another firmware..
everyone who got seduced by this update...please refrain and don't ever try to update to this firmware version except if you have already unlocked your phone....damn i regret updating my firmware with this sh*t
i already update to the new nougat 32.3.A.0.376 malaysian. the update was a big mistake. the fast charging are not fast now and a bit of interface issue.
I bought 1 week before... Nice phone....no heating problem....battery backpack is awesome.....
For those who wish of purchasing this phone, please reconsider. Why?
After updating to Nougat, this is what we get:
- The lock screen still the old one SONY (Home screen looks like when I got my Z5 10 months ago).
- No new refreshing UI basically nothing changes. Just the double window and the NOUGAT's LOGO (If that's the case this update is only a compensation).
- Updates were halted after launching it less than 4 days. (Which is totally a rubbish).
purchased this phone in dec 2015,and its gone kaput in jan2017,the sony centere said the mother board has to be repaired,i was a sony fan all along,but with consecutive models failing within an year.i guess they dont make the same quality as sony erricsson did.i had a p900 a p1 both far ahead of there times and functioned well,
the xperia z series z2, z3 and z5 was big let down.had all the 3all becoming duds within 12 months .sorry i have to finally let go my foolish attachment to the sony brand.
Why the speaker not ballance any more...?
Top speaker loud and bottom speaker low...?
The Nougat Update is useless, phone contacts looks and feature as become worst, so irritating that thinking of throwing phone. No new features added other than google as given. My request to sony please change the feature of contact and phone dialin asap.
I just bought the z5 just 2 months ago and yesterday I got the android nougat update and I updated it now the problem is my phone speaker quality is gone volume is not as it was specially for the incoming calls and games the volume is very low and if I play song in the music app there is a unusual loud sounds creating buzz sound too I contacted the Sony customer care I did and the asked me repair my phone via pc companion I did it too still the same if anyone can help me on this issue I will be so grateful

recently i bought the Z5,it is a nice phone but its main problem is heating...its not that hot which your hands will burn upon contact but its hot... i play a game(small one),2 minutes gone and the z5 is hot at the back of the screen and its temp reached 48 degrees but thank god till now no applications have shut down by itself due to overheating. Overall it is a nice phone.
