I have read quite a few comments about this phone. Everyone is entitled to their opinion of course. It is easy to spot the I-Phone users most of the time. First about the camera being poor. Any idea how many other big names use Sony's camera?? Apple, Samsung, Lg and more. Second, ram does make a difference to an extent. Just like in most real world applications, bigger isn't always better. I have a Z1 that I got from China long before it was available here, and with 1GB ram, it was better than the Samsung S6 i tried. The samsung couldn't run my Need for Speed game without freezing up. Everytime. Third with the battery. Not every piece of equipment will be the same. Just like vehicles, 2 identical cars wont be the same. One may get great gas mileage, the other not. One may have lots of repairs, one may not. I have just ordered a new Z5 Premium in Chrome, and I know it will be a 50/50 tha everything will be perfect on it. After over 4 years, I still get a day and half from my Z1, and that is checking emails all day for work, some surfing and many, many calls. I used to get over 2 days. I know 3 people with the Z5 series. only one is disappointed with the battery life, only a day. The other 2 get at least a day and half. But the first one is a you tube addict, so conclusions can be drawn from that. I have had a Sony phone for over 6 years now, and have tried Samsung in between, LG and Google. I have a very old phone by todays standards, and I can outperform some I-phones, and some other much newer and more expensive smartphones. But some I can't, depends on what you are dealt. One friend just got his new Samsung S7 and I can download a video faster than him with this Z1. Its all about the averages people, in my opinion.
how about the overheating problem? is it still there? im not a heavy user. what's caused the phone overheat??
Frd, 26 Sep 2016Hello guys i am planning to buy z5 premium but i am not sure about its battery life as i ve se... moreI have had my Z5 Premium since it was launched, I love it and the battery life is magic compared to my old Z2, if I use just as a phone and text I can go for at least 4 days without a charge and then I only plug it in cos its a habit. Heavier use, surfing, watching vids I can get about two days on the go then its needs charging, hope that helps you and enjoy your Z5 :)
Frd, 26 Sep 2016Hello guys i am planning to buy z5 premium but i am not sure about its battery life as i ve se... moreBatt life is quite okay. Not a very impressive one but i would say is good enough. I am kinda mid-heavy user..i do a lot of browsing, youtube, and sometimes gaming. From 7am to 2pm i need to charge it. But for regular use, like a little browsing/youtube, make some calls and text (whatsapp/bbm), i think i can make it until night time with no problem. Compared to my previous s6, z5p's batt is better/longer-life.
my device sony xperia z5premium has a problem of wifi and data being on even if i switch it off this affects my charge as it consumes power and credit due to data usage.the problem has lasted for 2 months now plz assist

No other Phone can beat this even that samsung exploding phones. HIGHEST PIXEL DENSITY or RESOLUTION (806 ppi). Sadly it's limited by Android OS.

me, 24 Sep 2016they probably cant use more ram because of the heat they allready have problems with that Actually, if you use less ram, then you'll have a problem of heating. Because, the phone can not handle some problems. For example, iPhone 7 has 2 gb of ram, but iPhone 7 Plus has 3 gb of ram. Because iPhone 7 Plus has a bigger screen and dual cameras. iPhone 7 has smaller screen and only one camera. This is what RAM works for. RAM provides the performance to handle big things and solve issues. So, bigger quantity of RAM means less heating.

Sony deserves to be out of business. I used to be a big fan. Their phones are so disappointing. Poor battery, poor speaker, poor camera, low volume level. How can you compete with Sammy, Apple, and Lg? smh siighhh
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2016Dude please don't compare a SMARTPHONE to a GAMING COMPUTER, seriously... There was no comparison. Because, the Ram is all the same in both computers and smartphones. Higher ram means higher performance.

But, ram is the most important performance provider in any electronic device. For example, if you haven't at least 8 gb ram on your pc, you can not play gta 5 properly. Or, if you haven't at least 2 gb ram video card, you can not play the latest games from Assassin's Creed. Like computers, smartphones need a good ram to work. If you want to play Asphalt 8 or if you wanna multitask your apps or if you wanna use dual camera; you will need a higher ram memory. Today, 3 gigs of ram is good but it won't be soon anymore. I would recommend Sony make a 4-6 gb ram smartphone or i can guarantee you nobody will use Sony smartphones. Because they will be insufficient.

Which is the best mobile Z5 Premium or Z5 or S7 Edge ?Go for an Iphone 6s or Galaxy S7 (or Edge) the sony is not worth the money man
