I got Z5 Premium Dual Silver last 24Dec15, one of my friend having the same unit and he show to me the 4K video, we compare and my unit is working with pixels. just for 9days. it's getting hot and the 4K video is like a Pixel movies, I return back to Jarir bookstore and they said 7days period is over. It is now in Sony service center in Khobar and they will repair, unluckily they will not replace, because the 7days period is over. but still i'm hoping they will replace. This is expensive unit and I save money to have new unit for Z5 only not for premium, but salesman knows how to sales.
I can't recommend this unit you.
please guys i am about to buy sony xperia z5 premium dual gold today
and i live in Egypt
last chance to give me your opinion to buy it or not
cactus, 30 Dec 2015gonna buy one soon, but still can't decide z5p or z5.... reason, according to official spec... morewithout stamina mode?i tried stamina mode and it dies way faster than my z3+.i leave home at 6am in the morning and it would usually be almost dead at 4pm.thus i sold the z5p for an s6 edge plus.btw theres no HUGE difference between z5p and z3+ except for the 4k and a few more gimmicks.

Amr, 31 Dec 2015Im sony user this not issue this problem from the screen protector you put it on the screen se... moreYes.. It's due to the tempered glass not properly affixed over my screen causing the proximity sensor to not work properly, I changed the tempered glass and now no issues. It's solved
AnonD-404798, 31 Dec 2015great news I'm glad you solved issue with your phone. Happy New Year! Thanks for your immediate responses too and wish u too a very happy new year!!!
In real life usage, okay there are some little issues about the quite fast draining of the battery, etc, due to the amazing pioneer 4K display, but innovation have to evolve, so generally speaking it's acceptable. So Sony definitely have to stick on this pathway, really well done and absolutely keep it up! Excellent job. Because holistically speaking, the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium is the most complete flagship of 2015, and so it is really the role model to follow for all the other brands!!! Compliments Sony, definitely keep it up! !!!!!

I Bought Sony Xperia Z5 Premium Dual Chrome this Day, OMG this Phone is Beast in every aspect im totally blown how fast it is comparing to my sister iPhone 6 S +, absolutely awesome, when i unbox it ear buds are inside and guest what? Quick Charger UCH10 is also packed into it..
BTW im here in saudi arabia bought it in Sony World Al-Khobar...
AnonD-404798, 29 Dec 2015Strange issue...well I'm not sure can this solve your problem but it is worth a try before goi... moreYeah!!! That's it..
After changing my tempered glass the issue is gone. .
So that's not the phone or software issue and just the tempered glass not affixed properly resulting in proximity sensor working error...

AnonD-478476, 20 Dec 2015hi guys i m newly registered on this site as now i need a help from you ppl. i have note 5 and... moreIt depends on the location where you buy I believe. I bought in India and here my Z5 Premium was bundled along with the headset.. By the way chrome color is what I have and that's exciting to use..
gonna buy one soon, but still can't decide z5p or z5....
according to official specs, z5p have 4k resolution and z5 have FHD. (but with 5 inch size of screen, human eye can't tell the difference, so, can ignore this)
z5p have 3430mAh battery cap while z5 have 2900mAh battery cap, and review from others, z5p battery drain faster than z5.
is that true that z5p eats up battery faster than z5? and how long can z5p's battery really last without stamina mode? this is the only thing that troubles me right now. thanks guys.

Yeah very strange issue..using Sony mobiles for past 4 years across various models.. Sola to Z to Z1 Compact to Z5 Premium..now only facing my first issue in my phone over these years...
I doubt my tempered glass over screen is not fixed properly and screen gets wet due to this reason..
As first step planning to change my tempered glass..after that if still the issue persists will follow ur recommendations..
Thanks a lot again..

My issue is like this
* while calling anyone screen goes black so c... moreStrange issue...well I'm not sure can this solve your problem but it is worth a try before going further so:
Try going into the settings and adjust time when display will go to sleep so that maybe will prevent screen from turning off and locking your phone:
Settings/ Display / Sleep / chose time 1min,2min,5min etc.
Also try turning off ''automatic lock'' by choosing only ''swipe'' or ''none'' for screen lock in security setting.
if above doesn't help backup your important data and files and do factory reset of your phone.
Settings / Backup & / Factory data reset (this will erase everything from the phone and log out from your accounts like FB,gmail,viber etc.)
If non of this helps than is probably some software issue that you can try solving via Sony pc companion that can be found here on Sony official page http://support.sonymobile.com/global-en/tools/pc-companion/
