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 :)

AnonD-497653, 18 Feb 2016And news about z6 ? When...Never heard anything about Z6.
While others already have solid line up, like Sammy, Xiaomi, huawei, all with premium metal midranger.
2016 will be hard for Sony.

It was big mistake launching 810 chip with tubes cooled, as 820 is know every second, high ender. Resale is terrible it's been 3 months on olx, So never ever think Sony as they plan shut out anytime.
Have it for a month now, moved from iphone to z5p, and this phone is working great, also have sony's android smarttv and PS4, everything is talking to everything through the wi fi without any problems, sony just keep up the good work. And please do something with heat disipattion 810 is like a calorifier
Had two handsets, first one overheated and went 'brick' for 12 hours. Replacement given within 28 day of ownership. Six weeks later the replacement after streaming a film for an hour and a half went black out and wouldnt turn back on. This phone runs hot. Not impressed.
