guys now 4 days usage and I will tell you my honest opinion
first of all let's talk about my phone specs and settings
brightness set to 50% adapted brightness is turned on at home no gsm only wifi
outside wifi is off and lte is on
android 5.1.1 I didn't upgrade to 6.0
stamina mode is on when battery reaches 45%
using only 1 sim card and 128 GB sd Card
on the previous settings I acheieved the following
phone fully charged in 120 minutes exactly
4 hrs on screen time
1 days 19 hrs phone is on
I watched viedos listened to 45 minutes of music on wirelees beats audio (Bluetooth is on)
texteing and caling over FBM , WhatsApp and viber
browsing internet and facebook
loudspeakers are good and loud enough but the quality is not like HTC boomsound but it is okay we can say verygood not excellent
the screen is fine I didn't find any heat issue only while gaming the mobile slightly warm but not too much it is normal I guess
camera is very good though no comlaining and selfie camera is pretty
however my lumia 950 xl was taking better low light photos and videos
so do you advice me to upgrade to android 6 or not ??? I hope you answer
I recently upgraded my phone from z2 to z5 premium.. At first it has heating issue.. But i found the root cause of it getting over heat.. After update or reset factory your phone will be on default at the first boot.. After setting the phone. Double Swipe the screen from the top going down.. You will see the quick setting.. Then at the top, click the icon with dots and pencil.. Look for auto sync and location then hold, drag and drop it to the bottom.. By default it was turn on.. You have to disable it.. Then reboot you phone.. Check for a few hours if still heating too much after auto sync and location is turned off.. Goodluck..
Anonymous, 02 May 2016Battery too bad...front and back camera not is bad too...note 5 much better my sister has it..... moreYou are right, few days ago I bought a Sony Xperia Z5 premium dual and his battery life is about 6h. It's taken 2% charge in every 15min without using the phone and without any connection (Wi-Fi, Internet etc). I am to much disappointed for his battery life and getting hot when I use any application,
I am using this mobile for more than 2 months, there are few pros and cons like all the devices have.
I agree on people complaining about the software. Sony has not been the best in building Android OS, but with the marshmallow update the mobile operates amazingly fast and very smooth.
People say cheating with 23MP camera, partially i agree the camera is 8MP (hardware) but the camera software enhances the pixel to 23MP. Even though i bet the pictures taken with 23MP setting is the best among all android phones so far. I did comparisons with many high end devices. Also i had taken under water pics (under sea, but not so deep) can not explain in words how nice the pictures was.
Also i suggest to use the add-on apps for camera, like background defocus, sweep panaroma, etc.. works great with the device for multiple camera functions.
Talking about battery, after marshmallow update the battery backup is good but not great (of-course better than before). But with Stamina mode set to always on, the phone gives great battery backup up to 24hrs for a max user.
Display - Sony says it has 4K display, when compared to samsung AMOLED display (samsung S7, S6, etc) this device stands nowhere, only difference is the sharpness of display is great and the X-reality settings enhances any display content to adjust color of the pics & video to add more life in viewing. Overall cannot say the display as bad, but not great when you hear the name 4K display.
The best thing to talk about the phone is, with premium features this model provides dual sim and expandable memory which is not available in many other company premium devices nowadays.
Overall i am satisfied with the device for the performance, camera, storage & dual sim. If people needs these 4 features for a high end model, i suggest to buy this device else don't buy.
1. Camera quality is not upto the mark. 2.Inbuilt app like file manager and note are not provided.
3. Heating problem.camera is not function properly and show phone temperature is high.
I used this device for only 10 days. My advice to everybody, do not buy this device, all most of the features are fake.. camera is very low resolution maximum 8MP, battery life is very bad, too much software bugs specially the notifications are not working all the time, device gets too hot in the normal condition. Really I am so sorry for SONY level..
1> Battery level (Battery usage) graph is not good and not showing timing properly
2> only 2.5 hour battery
3> No palm motion screenshot function is their
4> still no NTFS format support
5> still palm stop is missing to pause videos etc
and many things are pending
Samsung is very bad phone. Many problems have it, hanging, lagging, and many more. Sony is very better.
