Good hardware.. Very poor software.

Do you really want me to post a link to prove you that? Lol
Most Ppl here are just blind fanboys.
Sony cud have done much better but they always try to cut down on the imp specs Like OIS, bigger apreture, powerful flash .
If they wud have left that 4k thing and given me the above things i wud have bought Z5P for sure instead of Note5.inspite of all of its short comings.like no 64gb base model etc

Z5 camera is very poor.
I agree with the other comments, really the Z5 is far from being the best camera.
1. It has a lot of noise even in daylight. Your pictures will look more like watercolour paintings than real life pictures.
2. Depth of field on steroids. Extreme cases of blurry out of focus areas on landscapes. Only half of your picture will be usable.
3. Auto focus is fast but not reliable. Low detail pictures considering MP count.
4. Slow at taking shots.
These are all points I verify myself as I handle a lot of phones at work. Then there are the other problems such as poor low light and overheating that I didn't verify but I see a lot of other comments about it.
Overall the camera on the iphone 6s is far better and Samsung Edge is also better.
Then the Nokia 808/1020 camera, although its very slow, is in a league of its own. You cant even compare compare it to this toy as the previous comment shows on his example link.
If the Z5 wins just because it can take nice 4K video then that's wrong. It should also be able to take excellent photos to win.
I was excited for this phone but I wont buy it now after tying it."
Now its up to you to be honest or to be a fanboy!

And wider aperture doesn't always result in better low light performance. One of the greatest strengths of the Z5's camera is low light performance. My Z1 has the same aperture as Z5, but low light performance can't stand a chance against the Z5.
And the Z5's image stabilisation is much better than S6/Note5, as shown in the link I posted first. Dxomark states the same too. Plus, Z5 has ultrafast Autofocus, which helps in stabilisation.
Anonymous, 27 Oct 2015Totally agree, and I'm in with SONY. Seriously Sony Support is best. Because am an example for this. I have bought M5 dual, it is having auto power of issues. I gave at service center issue not resolved. Then I dropped a mail to Sony Customer support. They responded immediately and allowed me to exchange or upgrade the phone. They did not troubled me at all. Only problem is service center far away from my location ;).
Sony Customer care people always tried to help me out. Thanks Sony :)
sovath, 27 Nov 2015Anyone know how long the batter will last? normal usage phone call and internet? Thank you in... moreI'm using the chrome z5p for the last 2 weeks. For a moderate use, i used to have half of the battery by my bed time. And my moderate usage defines an one hour call, a max of one hour browsing and an one hour gaming. Abd regular whatsapp abd few snaps. I always keep my phone in stamina mode and really happy how this phone lasts. But screen on time is not so great especially if you play high graphic games or 4k video recording. Still this phone is best in business compared to other flagships. Fingers crossed on marshmallow update.
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2015Now now, don't make a fool of yourself here.
Aperture and image sensor are completely differe... moreDude even a noob on gsma knows how to compare specs of any smartphone in here.
The only other smartphone which has a bigger apreture than Note5 is the Lg G4 and the LG V10 they both have f/1.8 apreture which again equals to better low light performance which is slightly better than even Note5 .All of this is because more light enters the sensor.
& along with a sightly small f/2.0 apreture Z5P does not even have the OIS to make matters worse.Mainly in Videos.
I bet S7 wud not come with the same sensor as the Z5P.
It cud be a 12 Mp cam + a wide apreture to have best lowlight performance.
That is why there is No wonder the Note5 has a better low light performance than Z5P.
Which no software update can fix cause its a harware limitation.
I know i am not smarta** ,but i am no fool to not understand this simple thing.
PARAG B, 27 Nov 2015U did not mention the screen to body ratio properly! Note5 has bigger camera apreture dude ask... moreNow now, don't make a fool of yourself here.
Aperture and image sensor are completely different. Z5 has a 1/2.3 inch camera sensor and F2.0 APERTURE. Note5 has 1/2.6 inch sensor and F1.8 aperture. You clearly don't even know what aperture and image sensor size is, so don't rant ;-)
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tmvrdYMzgYc and http://www.dxomark.com/Mobiles/Sony-Xperia-Z5-Mobile-review-Best-mobile-photo-video-scores-to-date these proof enough?
The screen to body ratio mistake was not from my end, it's a gsma problem. Once again I'll tell: Z5P has 71.5 percent screen to body ratio.

U did not answer anything to my previous points casue u do not have anything as proof and even if u try to collect the proofs ,They all are going in supporting of my Note5 camera claims.
Z5P is a expensive Undercooked smartphone.Lol.
PARAG B, 27 Nov 2015Note5 has the best camera.
Beause in daylight any phone can shoot good pics But in low light ... more6. Sony has a larger camera sensor AND stereo speakers, which your sammy doesn't offer. 71.5℅ screen to body ratio is very good. Plus a 6 inch or display won't fit in a Z5P frame
7. The Z5 Premium can record 4K video for upto 1 hour without overheating. And the Z5P scores 62K in antutu, highest for an SD810 phone. Overheating is a thing of the past. Don't talk about things which you don't know. Seriously "heats up like crazy".
And if you're wondering why I didn't answer 1-5, it's because what you told is utter nonsense. Z5 is the first in dxomark and gsma blind test.
PARAG B, 27 Nov 2015Note5 has the best camera.
Beause in daylight any phone can shoot good pics But in low light ... moreOh, here too
Sure, you are right about that note camera...not
Note5 has the best camera.
Beause in daylight any phone can shoot good pics But in low light Note5 just beats the Z5P
1) Note5 has a bigger f/1.9 aperture than the f/2.0 on Z5P.
2) NOTE5 also has OIS so the autofocus is always spot on while videos shooting plus pics also comes nice even with unstable hands .
3) Z5P has lots of noise and very low details in the low light pics and videos.
4) Z5P videos also struggle to keep the autofocus so the lack of OIS is very noticable.
5) If anyone here thinks that i am just trolling then go to youtube and check the lowlight ( night time) video shootings and photgraphy for Z5P vs NOTE5 you will understand what i am talking about.
6) Note5 has 5.7" screen on a very compact body whereas the Z5P has only 5.5" screen with that huge body.
one can make a 6" screen on Z5P if that kind of size can be used properly.
7) Z5P still heats like crazy and the bigger battery is also not helping to give good endurence levels.
Anyone know how long the batter will last? normal usage phone call and internet?
Thank you in advance for your advice.
This is the most powerful smartphone I've seen. Well at least it's better than that expensive trash, Iphone
