For what it is worth, I have a Z5 and it overheats sometimes. Most often with apps with extensive use of camera and graphics (video, augmented reality), less often due to heavy general usage. Overheating should not be a concern for the regular user. Besides that, there is a lot of annoying stuff with this phone and I regret my purchase. (ex.: turns off when plugged in at 1%, external SD not operating as internal (apps move back when updated), glass cracks easily for the benefit of less scratches, softer and lighter casing makes it easier to bend, turning on takes forever, if you need to encrypt it you will also have an annoying signal when not entering passcode after restart, when fingerprint log in fails you are prompted to type SONY in capitals). Also, integration with Sony products and services was a part of my rationale to buy this phone, so naturally I regret it even more on that basis. Due to the fact that there is no other top line company that with such an ease lose their commitment to their service portfolio. But, again, for the regular user that is not into Sony services, this will not be a concern. It is a concern, however, that when you want a waterproof phone, you also want it to be sturdy. This phone is not. The first in z-series was sturdy, then lighter and more polished phones came out on the expense of their durability. This is not a phone fit to be handed over to your kids when you are done with it.
i do not know which phone i must buy this Z5 or one plus 3 or LG G5
,, the most important thing for me is high quality
Anonymous, 11 Jan 2017The complaint that Z5 Premium overheats is a total lie. I am having it and nothing like that. Even when playing high graphics games or recording video with a high resolution or frame rate?? Are you sure.

Ted , 07 Jan 2017I heard that Z5 Premium got overheating issues. Is it true?? The complaint that Z5 Premium overheats is a total lie. I am having it and nothing like that.

Does anyone have micro stutterings while scrolling on web? But it only occurs on some web pages and just slightly.
AnonD-589765, 19 Dec 2016I cant everything in terms of detailed specs, but here goes (based on my experience with Z5P)
... moreWhat I mean about "noise" during zooming in is (if i can describe it in layman's term) some artefacts present an photo becomes blurred hence the (technical term) "noise.
There were (apparently) some issues with the speakers of the Z lineup that before it was updated to Marshmallow the speakers were loud and then it became kind of soft and week thereafter the update. Being the 5.5" phone that it is would you say definitely the Z5 Premium's speakers are louder than the Z5 and Z3?
You said the photos doesn't look warmer but definitely not cool-looking like the bluish cool of the Z3? Have you had anymore updates to the camera to improve quality, speed & performance?
On the multitasking does the apps (or games) still reload or does it keep memory and loads almost instantly?
Bootup/startup is under 30 seconds?
i am tried of thinking between this phone and one plus 3 and huawi p9 , i need a phone with good mafucture quality to stay with me for years
whci one is best
Ted , 07 Jan 2017I heard that Z5 Premium got overheating issues. Is it true?? Yes it does overheat when recording with a high resolution or frame rate or playing a high graphics games, same as most smartphones.
Ted , 07 Jan 2017I heard that Z5 Premium got overheating issues. Is it true?? for me i didn't face this issue till now
any phone under heavy usage for sure will face the heating issue specially with games
Chucks , 04 Jan 2017Totally agree.. This phone is nothing but cheap! Don't waste your money. They call it premium ... moreThe camera is nothing short of awesome, and I'm telling this as someone who used the Nexus 6P before this phone. Selfie camera is so-so, but it wasn't meant to be great in the first place. But the main camera is awesome, if you know what you're doing. Average Joe prefer to see the exaggerated artificial sharpness, oversaturated colors, overexposure and other post-processing goods, which make an photo appear great and "popping out" on phone screen. But if you know anything about photography, then you know these kind of things are crippling your photos permanently, and you can say goodbye to any true post-processing (Photoshop, Lightroom, etc...). With Z5P, captured colors are very natural, object edges are not oversharpened, and in 23mpix shooting mode, details are unmatched. It is the easiest thing on world to jump on some hatewagon, criticizing "wounded" brands and praising currently popular ones, which many tech-portals do today (accommodating their reader base), as well as their readers. It is a bit harder, though, to do some research, to make your own judgment based on facts.
However, GSMArena review of this phone is one of better ones.
Ted, 06 Jan 2017I'm very confused, should i choose Xperia Z5 Premium or Xperia XZ? both these phones were grea... moreZ5 Premium will (most probably) get the X series user interface with upcoming Nougat update (and that one is around the corner), so that is of no relevance more or less. If you prefer the Z5 Premium (which I did) just go for it.
Ted, 06 Jan 2017I'm very confused, should i choose Xperia Z5 Premium or Xperia XZ? both these phones were grea... moreimo go for the newest "XZ" in case its price is ok for you but you will miss the radio app. if you need it! also check the design which is better for you as they are different
For me i went for Z5 premium due to radio app + larger battery in addition to that I didn't like the XZ design a lot but both of them are super high quality in the hands!
I'm very confused, should i choose Xperia Z5 Premium or Xperia XZ? both these phones were great. I wanna pick Z5 premium. However, the Xperia X UI looks amazing. Which makes me think of choosing XZ. Any suggestion???????
Amp-sg, 22 Mar 2016Was a sony fan till now had over 8 phones but would say this phone is a crap dont waste your m... moreTotally agree.. This phone is nothing but cheap! Don't waste your money. They call it premium but it doesn't live up to premium. Sony could do better with the audio system and camera which they are known for. Aside from those downfall . The phone is okay but I need my phone for Sharp images, good camera and speed!
