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!
To owners of Z5 Premium-I use iPhone SE 64 GB and it works great, battery life is great, but as a Linux user it annoys me that I need to reboot to Windows (I use for games) every time I want to transfer something because of the iTunes that dont exist for Linux. Also forcing me to use iCloud if I want to make the most out of my iPhone is getting annoying. I am considering selling it and switching back to Android. As a previous Sony user I want Xperia again, XZ is expensive and doesnt offer much advantage over Z5 so I am considering Z5 Premium which can be found cheaper as it is late 2015 model.
How is battery life? Can you go all day on 4G with lots of use?
Sound quality via headphones? Sony supposedly has one of the better audio chips and I use my phone for listening to music so I wonder if it is an improvement compared to iPhone.
Screen quality? I know its 4K but iPhone has a damn good screen (colors/contrast/viewing angles) and I read some concerning comments that visibility is not so good when viewed from the side, is that true?
I also read it has some heating issues, does is just get warm or overheats?
My phone when I play games after 10 min the screen hangs and the buttons home and back hang Olso till I block the screen, any body have an idea is that software or hardware?? And is there any body faced the same problem?? Please answer me
what kind of error occur after system update ? I want to update my system.

I just bought this phone yesterday and it keeps on asking me to update the software.. I have updated the software for 4 times now.. How to fix this issue? Thanks!
using since 5 months, perfect phone. Just a single complain: I usually take 4k videos and have no problem with that but i dont understand why sony cant just put the 4k recording setting on the general video recording resolution settings? unfortunetaly when i transfer my videos to pc and see them on bigger screen, 1080p recording is awful compared to my 5 years old iphone 4s. I just dont get it and never use 1080p. thats why i complain to cant choose 4k as default resolution :)
