This phone seems to suffer from lack of CPU power. When starting up the apps Pokemon Go, this phone starts slower then Samsung Note 3. When throwing pokeballs, sometimes to ball is like travelling in slow motion and drop short of the target pokemon. Will think 3 times before purchasing a Sony phone in future.

JohnExzequiel, 02 Aug 2017Hello. Is z5 premium and z5+ different?U mean XPERIA Z5 & XPERIA Z5 PREMIUM? There is no major difference in specifications only the display & battery are bumped up for XPERIA Z5 PREMIUM. FHD to 4K, 2900mah to 3430mah.
I've been reading a lot of bad reviews, but I've been using mine for the past few months and It's been a wonder, I bought it in 2017 and It's been a lovely experiences, It's fast, yeah...It does overheat a little but much less than my previos phone(Iphone 5s) and I love that altough It's quite big, it doesn't feel like a big phone

If ur Z5 Premium already give u problem since the first month of using, why not just get rid of it?? Be honest to urself rather talk bs'
Been using the Z5 Premium for close to two years now. All I can say is..I can't wait to sell this phone off and go back to using a Samsung.
During the first year of usage (when the warranty is still valid), I have send the phone back to the shop for repairs 4 times. And it wasn't even fully fixed after that.
And now, the phone is flickering due to it's ROBUST water resistant properties.
On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best, I would rate this model a -3.

U said your XPERIA Z5 PREMIUM stops for a few seconds when doing things. Maybe u can download some CPU-Z app? I used DevCheck to check the RAM, the reason could be because of the RAM, if it is lower than 500MB or so then it is because of that then the smartphone will stop. If the RAM have somewhat 800+MB free then I guess it would be some hardware problems
Hope that an update with help solve issues with this phone. Screen up and down real fast- touch response issue, heat, Freezing, Pauses, operating issue at times can not turn Z5 premium off.
Im really impressed with the specs of this phone.But i am now using my 2nd unit after the 1st one got water damaged and I encountered the same issue with both units: ALWAYS LAGGING on internet connection both WiFi or Data (im on SG and internet is definitely not an issue)...when i surf or play a video on internet HD or not it always stops for around 5-10secs every 20-30secs of playing/surfing. Does anyone here know why and what is the solution?..i'm always a big fan of Sony but this one really pissed me. My Z2 before has no issue like this.
Worst experience ever with mobile phone, it was always heating up specially during taking videos. And for now the happy ending the mobile is not working anymore because it fall in water!!! The price for fixing it is around 400 USD which is similar to the new one price!!!
I am thinking on getting either Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra G3226 4GB RAM / 64GB ROM or Sony Xperia Z5 Premium Dual E6883 5.5" 23MP 32GB, wich one do you think is the best option for me? I play a lot of games and all of a sudden I change to FB, Whatsapp, other game, camera, etc. Basically I need a really fast and reliable phone.
KnashKyrone, 03 Jul 2017I am about to get this phone... any suggestions before i pick S7 Edge. No. This phone performs good even though it overheats because ANDROID 7.0 fixed the overheat so there is lesser throttling
ERRRRRM don;t be silly!
7.1.1 is not out yet for z5 premium even bloody 7.1 is not officially out and is experimental. YOU cannot complain if you stupidly flash your phone to something that sony is not even supporting yet.
Blame yourself and not the sony z5 premium!
Samsung j7 is a midranger phone compare to z5 premium which is a flagship. Just like comparing toyota and volvo. Lol
