It was knock down reaction, after continue failure of z3+ t Z5 810 in spite of cooling tubes let them down. Why were they n haste to intro, should have waited now in X series intro flagships. When everything is doomed your thinking is one way. Let's see their survival ratio n X series. Don't think so. Jumping on MP without improved f1. 5 ratio as Samsung has done.
On the first day i bought this phone, im so scared about the battery drain kinda stuff, come to think about that ridiculous ppi count although its renderring on 1080p you cant still hide the truth that this beast have over 8 million pixels to light on when you're using phone, I'm also concern about that fire breathing dragon 810, so i told myself if not gonna satisfied with the battery performance im gonna switch to huawei mate 8 which is way more cheaper, but the day im using it i cant hardly believe that this beast can match my xperia z2 battery performance, auto brightness is on at day maybe reach up to 60% of brightness,
by day to day usage ive got 5 to 6 hours Stanby on Screen, moderate to heavy of usage, playing clash of clans for about 8 to 10 times a day, Vikings maybe 2x a day, 2K16 for almost an hour, take note even i reach sometimes 1 hour playing 2K16 the phone is damn cool vs my Z2, video calling it gets hot but not over heating, opening tweeter, isntagram, facebook, and playing some youtube videos, so overall i'm very happy and satisfied with this phone very recommended for everybody, the only con that i see on this phone is the camera protection on the lens it gets scratch so easily so be very careful with that,
Guys...i need your opinions....which one is better...Huwaei Mate 8 VS Sony Z5 permium VS I phone 6s plus... i am used to andriod...waiting for your opinions
The Sony submersion rating is only good for FRESH WATER. And only provided that all ports and covers are firmly closed and sealed.
Most swimming pools are chlorine or salt-water based and NOT FRESH WATER.
The small print clearly says that the phones SHOULD NOT be used in any swimming pools or the sea/beach. These phones ARE failing when used in chlorinated and salt water.
Sony IS NOT replacing all of the phones which are damaged due to water.
hope all are well. im curious to know what the actual screen is made out of? I recently smashed my XperiaZ and its totally knackered, accidentally of course,but if I never dropped it,wouldnt even consider replacing it. In any event,I have a question my people; Is the screen on the Z5 stronger and shatterproof like the XperiaZ?
I wanna buy one this weekend but I need a phone that's as tough and shatterproof as the XperiaZ? PLEASE HELP
AnonD-506576, 23 Feb 2016I have had this phone for a couple of weeks and it is a quantum leap from my old Sony Xperia J... moreThey overheated, that way they are water resistant ,when they are unbearable in pocket just take them out, give them a proper shower(under tap or from your water bottle ), now back to pocket ××××××××:-)
Z5 Premium Dual has option for the 2nd Sim. but specs are the same as the Z5 premium.
bought 2 of these babies since december and only rant is, here in our country
Accessories for the z5p is rarely available dropped mine twice and scratched the plastic edges :( but phone still looks sexy and works perfectly
Perofrmance is awesome
Phone does heat up only when playing Games or using the Camera effect thingies..
surprisingly playing Fifa does not heat it up compared to my Samsung >.>
I have had this phone for a couple of weeks and it is a quantum leap from my old Sony Xperia J. that said I do not think it is worth having a 4K display which even Marshmallow will not fully utilise and as to the overheating problem, I just blow on the back and things start to work again. It is very difficult to dissipate heat in a phone that is dust proof and watertight to a depth of 1.5m and I find it is the GPU that creates most of the heat so prolonged game playing or video will cause the phone to heat up quite a bit. If the phone bricks because of this I would suggest there is a fault and the phone should be sent back to Sony to investigate. This is a game changing phone and is guaranteed to be so for a good while until everyone else has caught up.
AnonD-434597, 19 Feb 2016Never heard anything about Z6. While others already have solid line up, like Sammy, Xiaomi,... moreAll true what you said. With the Z5 having overheating problems, questionable quality and the same old self cracking screens, 2016 will be very hard for Sony phones....Nothing heard of a possible Z6 yet.
I have the phone for like 60 days running daily use. There is no friend that cant resist to ask more info about the phone at first sight or asking to have a look into it.
The feedback and impressions are always the same:
Good ones: This phone is sick ! OS gives flawless rendering of any task at its best.
Bad ones: I didn't know that Sony makes so good phones.
+1 for the Chrome color - pretty astonishing, although it needs cleaning to look good, if you have dirty hands :)
