Sony Xperia Z5 Dual - User Reviews

  • Yeah,,perfect phone

  • Is no difference between single and dual sim on z5, z5 premium it's just bigger screen 4k and glossy back, I would recommend z5 better with matte back, is not so much fingerprints on it and looks better, unless you are not looking for a 4k display. Full HD it's pretty good as well.

  • So do you recommend the z5 single sim or the z5 premium?

  • Aslong as they dont say its BRAND NEW that will make some folks confused.

  • And so what? Does this mean that someone who wants to buy used or REFURBISHED is not looking for opinions about it?

  • Thos are REFURBISHED. Sony has officially stopped manufacturing problematic SD810 phones. If you're lucky you can get a decent Refurbished or unlucky if not.

  • It is still available as a brand new in some markets

  • Considering this is an already 3yr old phone so why would you recommend it since you wont be getting it brand new, either you get a refurbished/get lucky buying from a decent seller.

  • One of the most disappointing smartphones I've ever had. After having a nice relationship with the Xperia Z3 Dual, I decided to try the newer Z5 Dual. Epic fail. A short-acting battery, a bad display and a poor main camera - macro not exist. Subsequent system updates only made the matter worse. I do not recommend this model.

  • Mine is completely dead less than 2 years.

  • Great phone. However, mine lost connectivity to the mobile network. No help so far over 2 months down the line

  • I am using since November 2016 and facing a main problem for over heating. While charging, while using mobile data and I cannot shoot video more than 2 minutes. So this phone is bad in shooting, other options like after 1 year I am facing the problem of battery, it is showing 11 - 16 hrs of usage when standby, but in normal usage it is getting 4 hrs maximum. So decided to change this phone

  • Both, 30 and 60 fps

  • The video of Z5 Dual can movie with fullhd with 30 or 60 fps.

  • Good smartphone that I bought in December 2015 and have been using since January 2016. The problems are: 1. Overheating that has now split it permanently open in April 2018. I need to replace it but will still go for Sony for their quality and innovations. 2. Battery life runs down fast on usage but well preserved if on standby. Not good for long usage without frequent charging. 3. Once you put a screen cover the image of caller will not appear again. 4. Shuts down occasionally without warning when I am playing electronic Scrabble game with it.

  • I bought the BOND 007 edition of the phone. Paste 007 on something and I might buy it. I loved the camera, but not the battery or the way the phone would heat up. If you can find one super cheap get it. Otherwise, save your money.

  • Any news about cyber shot??

  • There is a system update, which updates to 7.1.1 available, so one way would be to go to Settings > About phone (or similar) > Software update > System updates.

  • How to upgrade 7.1.1

  • Never

  • oreo ? ?

  • I was also previously faced this problem ,after doing software repairing via Sony suite software from PC ,Now updated working good

  • there is a problem in a speaker .how to rectify it ?

  • Thanx for you

  • Hey, I have bought it 2 months ago for 322 USD and I am happy with it.now you can find even better deals for a flagship and premium materials, its working smoothly and no problems.only bad thing than no more updates.

  • Do you advise me to buy z5? I have z3 dual right now and There are some problems in audio playback

  • Do factory reset and switch on, if problem not gone, call me i also use Z5 i can help.

  • got this phone for 2 years now, lately. now having problem with texting and contact app.. please help

  • They are trolls! Eitherway is the Z5 your getting brandnew/2ndhand? Must have warranty if you get one....

  • Hi...I am from Bangladesh. I am very much keen on buying this phone. Will u tell me about its performance? How is it's battery backup? Have any major problems like auto shutting down & hanging? Please help me. And what's the price of it bought by you?

  • Remember to do a FULL WIPE/RESET prior to upgrading to Android 7.1.1 w/c is a major firmware update and vice versa.

  • update to 7.1.1 and all of your problem's solved.

  • After a year using it, the problem is coming. Now my phone keep shutting down itself, apps will hang and force to closr apps and reopen. Sometimes when I press the open button, its malfuncture, and u have to wait for few seconds only it appears....getting disappointed with Sony phone

  • Too hot Low battery lifei I have a z5 whose charging ic is damage... So kindly help me..

  • The Xperia Z5 premium is an excellent performer indeed.

  • I bouth mine 2 weeks ago for 322 USD and it has good performance for this money, and also its a premium device, not a plastic one.

  • Too much heating... Fast battery drain.. Gud camera.. Fantastic Performance... Heat and Battery is dissapointed :-(

  • Water Proof ! I lost my screen because of some water :D

  • ya...agree :-)

  • I am using Sony z5 dual everywhere good but battery is not perfect using 4g network using after 5 hour battery persant is going 40persant out of 100

  • I am using Sony z5 dual everywhere good but battery is not perfect using 4g network using after 5 hour battery peasant is going 40persant

  • Overheating fast battery drainage poor grip low sound of sterio speakers,

  • For me, my Z5 dual is fine.. I upgraded it to Nougat 7.1.1 and everything are ok. Heating of battery is normal according to other Z5 users and based from my experience, the heating is just only from the start (when playing games etc.) maybe around 5-10 mins. only and after that it cools down. I hope my comment helps you.

  • Yes .what you said that is obsolutely correct..please do not update to 7.1.1 . Because some issues which are not still fixed in Nougat.. Issues: 1) Loud speaker volume will be very low 2) Heating issue when you surf internet over 3g or 4g and while playing games 3) Battery will drain fast . So don't update your device. If you update then you will face these issues. Then simply downgrade if you want to go back to previous version... Best regards, Ganesh

  • If you want to fix heat issues use this mod on xda

  • Everything is well in this phone but only one problem too much hit.

  • Its Better to update. Mine is working perfectly fine after the 7.1.1 update.

  • what about the IPxx protection ? i mean the water prof . is it as mentioned ?1.5 meter

  • SHOULD I UPDATE TO NOUGAT??? Hello guys I have recently bought a new Z5 dual, everything works amazing: the battery is good,great performance,speaker is clear and loud,high brightness screen doesn't drain much power, heats up alittle which isn't so bad Right now it's marshmallow There is a system update available which is probably nougat Do you recommend me to update? Some comments says that the update ruins the battery life, slow performance and make the speakers weaker, I usually play much games and can't put up with weak battery, plz Z5 users give me your opinion and the significant disadvantages you face. Thank you

  • Does it have volte?

  • This is a great phone, I have updated to 7.1.1 and everything is working smart. I had gone thr the comments and I have no challenge like in some comments I love everything about this phone, camera is wow, touch is good. I have used mirror link, the figure print wonderful, battery very ok- I charged yesterday and now with 30% and telling me I can use up to 15hrs

  • All their phones released after Z3 are nothing but dissappointment. Lackluster performance, horrible battery life etc. etc. etc. Disappointing really because I actually love the phone's design and shape.

  • Kingroot

  • You need add Detect USB Device at to the notifications panel and tap it after you plug in otg storage in order to use it. Otherwise you can to Settings>Device Connection>USB Connectivity then tap Detect USB Device to trigger the otg connection.

  • I have a year with my device, I like the sony brand but it is regrettable that the phone too hot, buy it because had said that the problem of overheating had been resolved but not, besides the life of bacteria is quite short if you use it without the stamina mode, when you put the stamina mode affects the performance of the image on the screen. It is necessary to change brand, although they do not compare with sony quality.

  • Its ok 7.1.1 but OTG not working

  • I still have the heating problem while using apps for a short time what should I do

  • Hi guys. Has anyone figured out a way to root this phone without unlocking the bootloader. Please share the rooting guide if you have successfully managed to do so. I have been trying hard to find a proper method but all requires unlocking the bootloader. Previously I had an Xperia pro and a Z1 compact which had very easy rooting methods. But this one is a very tough nut to crack. Rooting guide for Any stock android version is appreciated without unlocking the bootloader. Please respond guys.

  • No complaints. Fastest phone Sony ever built. Waterproof, solid build, works as expected. Have had it for a few months now, just upgraded to Nougat, still good.

  • This is just a splash proof phone, my 2nd Sony phone destroyed by water, both phone Sony claims that they are waterproof. Dont go for this phpne if u looking for a phone which u can use in water

  • After upgrading to nougat.. the device became more slow and had a sudden death and need to change the motherboard.....WORSE PHONE EVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER :(

  • it was a very good mobile till water killed it, even it was merged in water in less than 0.5m depth and less than 15 min, as when i sent it to sony, i was surprised when they told me that they don't cover water damage as it was written in warranty. (Very Bad wast of money and time) as now i can't even fix it as spare parts aren't available (I Wont Buy Sony again and don't recommend buying it as you wont find what sony promised).

  • finally... sony solve the problem of loud 🔊 n top 🔝 speaker....its balance but one big mistake are not solve......Quick charger are not properly work... .

  • I had Z3 compact wich was very hood until i go for a swim. New one is Z5 dual sim. Have many problems. The speaker and hands free speaker is so low that is hard to head.( on max volume). Many times friends call and they cant reach my even if i had signal. The screentuch is not exact as Z3 ( gaming and writing) becose a dual sim the battarey go fast. Going very hot when gaming.

  • Got Z5 dual 6months or so ago. beautiful mobile, everything worked fine on stock 6.0. then, a month ago or so, after i upgraded to 7.0 i noticed a tremendous drop in photo quality- and this phone used to take really brilliant photos and printing in A3 was still producing very good results. so started looking for answers- and apparently i'm not the only one- xperia devices have some antireflective coating on plastic lens covers that wears out with time (i personally find this shocking as i keep the phone in a case since day one) it is beyond me that sony opted for a piece of cheap nasty plastic coated in some mumbo jumbo, instead of integrating that within the rear glass panel . i'm yet to find out from sony whether they will rectify this under warranty as this clearly is a fault due to poor design . to make things worse, since upgrading to 7.0, the battery life is at best a half of what it used to be, so all this bull about stamina this and daze that is just a lot of bull. power management in marshmallow was just fine after they brought back stamina mode. other than that, i don't have much bad to say about this thing. takes two sims, charges fairly quickly, perhaps speaker are not as loud as i'd like and definitely not as loud as they were before 7.0. also, screen isnt very bright- i guess comparing z5 to s7 wasnt a smart move. but it is readable. would i recommend this thing- for consideration, perhaps- there are better phones out there but i needed dual sim, splash/ water proof, reasonable size and relatively good battery/ camera and at the time it fitted the description. and as i didnt want to spend money on s6 or s7, this was the next best thing from my perspective...

  • i am happy with my purchase. Z5 is truly awesome device.

  • On the on/off button

  • How is it now?

  • Guys i have xperia z5 dual and i don't found in sucurity fingerprint , help me plss

  • Its dual sim , waterproof and can be updated to nougat I am searching for this phone desesperately and do not know where to get it in Mauritius and the price .

  • Z5 seems to be better than Xperia X. Just switch from Z3 to Z5. Lets see how things go now.

  • Worst phone I've ever had. Battery life is simply terrible - it's impossible reach 12h without charging. Phone is still on warranty, but Sony refuses to do anything with it. They say everyting it's OK.

  • Updated to Nougat in my xperia z5, completely satisfied, it has become faster, more fluid, battery life is same as before, just go for it.

  • hi. plz help me for choosing between Xperia X & Z5. i think Xperia X have better selfie camera and newer cellphone, but Z5 has stronger chipset and better battery. the price of both of them are about same in my country. plzzz help me.

  • Hey just wate one day and everything going to be ok all problems goes away the music sounds goes balance and rington becomes perfect just gave your phone one day to find himself

  • I have z5 and im panning to update it to nougat , as ive read the comments below, I found more bad comments in the nougat update. any suggestion if I will update it or not ?

  • Having the same problems here, the speakers are not balance. @_@

  • I lost my mobile sony Xperia z5 dual (Box) all component - (Micro USB Cable; Sony Quick Charger and Audio Headset) what i can do now can i have another box

  • I have been using the device since last august. The battery consumption at times is very fast. screen takes 21% and idel phone sucks about 14%. The phone is not even lasting a full day.

  • No

  • Just checked mine z5 dual and is same thing, giving z4 ultra

  • i have updated my sony xperia Z5 dual with nougat latest firmware (32.3.A.0.376)....i have several problems after update, which are : - fast charging has a new brand now : slow charging - ringtone volume becomes goddamn suck, its volume is goddamn reduced by sony R&D but suprisingly its alarm and notification are still normal - that dialpad volume is fucking loud, even far louder than ringtone volume... - more battery drain hope sony will fix it soon or else i will unlock this phone and install another firmware.. everyone who got seduced by this update...please refrain and don't ever try to update to this firmware version except if you have already unlocked your phone....damn i regret updating my firmware with this sh*t

  • i already update to the new nougat 32.3.A.0.376 malaysian. the update was a big mistake. the fast charging are not fast now and a bit of interface issue.

  • Can Z5 dual run both 4G at same time?

  • I bought 1 week before... Nice phone....no heating problem....battery backpack is awesome.....

  • So did you get paid by SONY instead?

  • Same thing happend to me with my z5....lost money

  • For those who wish of purchasing this phone, please reconsider. Why? After updating to Nougat, this is what we get: - The lock screen still the old one SONY (Home screen looks like when I got my Z5 10 months ago). - No new refreshing UI basically nothing changes. Just the double window and the NOUGAT's LOGO (If that's the case this update is only a compensation). - Updates were halted after launching it less than 4 days. (Which is totally a rubbish).

  • purchased this phone in dec 2015,and its gone kaput in jan2017,the sony centere said the mother board has to be repaired,i was a sony fan all along,but with consecutive models failing within an year.i guess they dont make the same quality as sony erricsson did.i had a p900 a p1 both far ahead of there times and functioned well, the xperia z series z2, z3 and z5 was big let down.had all the 3all becoming duds within 12 months .sorry i have to finally let go my foolish attachment to the sony brand.

  • Why the speaker not ballance any more...? Top speaker loud and bottom speaker low...?

  • The Nougat Update is useless, phone contacts looks and feature as become worst, so irritating that thinking of throwing phone. No new features added other than google as given. My request to sony please change the feature of contact and phone dialin asap.

  • HI there I just bought the z5 just 2 months ago and yesterday I got the android nougat update and I updated it now the problem is my phone speaker quality is gone volume is not as it was specially for the incoming calls and games the volume is very low and if I play song in the music app there is a unusual loud sounds creating buzz sound too I contacted the Sony customer care I did and the asked me repair my phone via pc companion I did it too still the same if anyone can help me on this issue I will be so grateful

  • Yes i notice that also i just bought 4 days ago. but after, its ok. this is Great Phone!

  • this is Great Phone!!!

  • It does has finger print lock

  • It's good i never tested guitars i recorded some videos and this phone handled sound better then most. You can also change mic sensitivity from settings go into settings

  • recently i bought the Z5,it is a nice phone but its main problem is heating...its not that hot which your hands will burn upon contact but its hot... i play a game(small one),2 minutes gone and the z5 is hot at the back of the screen and its temp reached 48 degrees but thank god till now no applications have shut down by itself due to overheating. Overall it is a nice phone.

  • If it has a finger print sensor then its a 5.

  • I bought Sony Xperia Z5 Dual with E6683 model no., when I checked IMEI in IMEIINFO site, it showed Sony Xperia Z4 Ultra, so is it Z4 or Z5? I'm confused about it. Warmly welcome from your opinions. Thanks.

  • It has great video recording with great sound recording in stereo.

  • Hello! I was thinking about buying a Z5 dual sim version soon. The only thing that worries me a little bit is the microphone quality. Has anyone from here tried recording a video/ audio from an acoustic guitar? Could you guys give me an idea of how good or bad it is?

  • Will the dual sim version receive android nougat?

  • 32.2.a.5.11 brings the November security patch

  • Hey Guys, I just received a firmware update today which upped my build number to 32.2.A.5.11, does anyone know about this update? (There was no information given about the update).

  • Not might be the case in future with helio x series. You know whats bad with flagship phones. they use complex programme to master their chip-set like jtag so that people should brick their phone easily and never get it back to life, ending to replace motherboard or a new phone to grow their market. But its not the case with MTK simple programming longer life unbrickable at cheap rates. Androids are to root and brick. If you buy a 800$ phone and company says don't root, don't install, play etc What`s the use of paying$ instead buy an nokia 1100.

  • 4k recording only

  • 145sma All flagship phone contains a snapdragon processor,so if u r buying a flagship phne den u have to opt fr snapdragon,mediatek is used in the mble which is lower in cost

  • Yea case it uses snapdragon processor. snapdragon has lot more issues avoid buying snapdragon processor make phones.

  • Yea case it uses snapdragon processor. snapdragon has lot more issues avoid buying snapdragon processor make phones.

  • am using the phone now but it is very slow with browsing

  • Is 4k recording or 4k display is available on this not?

  • I am using this phone now and the phone can overheat if we play online games too much.I disagree about we should turn off the camera to make it cool down.I think it can cool down by itself quickly.😀

  • Do they overheat or not ? I've seen the youtube videos about the phone stopping the camera so it can cool down. Is it a common issue? do lots of you suffer from it ? I'd really like to buy this but if it overheats maybe i'll find a different model.

  • Is 4k recording or 4k display is available on this not?

  • need to buy a phone which phone should i buy at any cost

  • According to below link, Yes.

  • Dear user, I just wanna ask about the new update of sony z5 dual?

  • 7 months used, it is great, nothing to complain about , battery last longer than iPhone 6s plus with stamina mode enabled. The stamina mode is extremely helpful when u are day out for whole day without a powerbank with u. From my opinion it is better than xperia x. I prefer dual sim than hybrid sim so that i wont need to keep remove my 2nd sim all the time. Just that the touch screen will go crazy when u dip it into swimming pools. I had that problem on xperia z3c as well.

  • Using from June 2016 , always heating is only problem in this phone .

  • Excellent qualityin all respect with some minor issue of warm during video and playing heavy games.

  • Been using this phone from 2/11/2015 to date and i must say its works amazingly. *cam- Is really good close to a DSLR. low light pics not that great. *Battery life - i m facing issues of late, i have been charging my phone 2 - 3 times a day. not sure if its the number of apps on my phone or the OS update or something else. but the beauty about charging is that u can get a full charge in 1 hour 30 -45 min if u don't play with it. working is pretty smooth haven't faced any lag till date. waterproof** tested in a 5ft swimming pool and works amazing.. superb Pictures. Really Light weight, which for me is dam scary.

  • Well, its a good phone to use unless you have face any issues with your phone like continuous vibrating, over heating, lagging etc. it will never gets resolved by service centers even in warranty. If your vibrator is damage which usually gets (most Z5 users have complained) its may cost you around 25k-30k. Waterproof?? to some extend yes, but you go out in rain its gone of good.

  • Hi,igot my z5 dual today,but why i can't upgrade to android 6, i try ota and via pc companion to upgrade, but it said that i have been in latest version of android.. And surely i am on android 5.1.1 any sugest? Please..

  • Minus-why Sony not included front blitz for camera?Other phones,more cheaper already used.I cannot do a photo inside the places when it is semi-darkness.I'm very disappointed.

  • hi, I have z5 dual I have problem in heating and recently the google play page open alone without order. Plz advise

  • Hey i had a problem, i test the water in sink. flap was properly closed as the indicator was untouched. The water apparently went through the usb port, and they refuse warranty and charge $310. they said that "if whole phone submerged even above 1m" can cause the seal to open allowing the water get in. Even though IP68 rating says that it can withstand above 1.5m

  • It does get warm but that's same as other phones does. Its not much off a problem to me. If heat bothers you then you can use a case. Its still working great.

  • Hi Nick, I am also facing the same issue which you are facing now, but we have other option to come out of this. Just enable Smart call handling in call settings. So that you can attend the call even if Swipe option hide.

  • Brow how hot the phone after playing games..? Is it okay.,? I'm getting worried.,.,

  • How about the heating problem., is it okay to use it, or should we stop to use it when its Hoot,?did most of you have experience,.? Please, .,.,

  • Aft 2months, when am receiving the call and when am sliding to answer the answer logo goes blank, and again I have to resrrt it aft tht it wrks proprly

  • probably a bad proximity sensor happened to me once got to your retailer and demand a replacement

  • According to the specification Xperia Z5 (Single sim) have Cat 6 LTE while Xperia Z5 dual only have Cat 4 LTE.

  • I think you should buy Nexus by Huawei. It has good camera and updates for more 2 generation of Android OS. Huawei is a traditional mark in China and specialized in communications, so a good signal in the noises environment. In my opinion I prefer in the first thing the company with tradition in communications, energy resource management and the last things entertainment.

  • I mean in my country

  • this phone is much cheaper that the normal z5 (not compact or premium) and it has dual sim.. confusing right!? Did they decrease the battery capacity or something? or they are identical expect the dual sim thing?

  • Yes it supports OTG. You just have to click "detect USB" every time you want to use it

  • Bought it about 10days ago. Its a great phone, doesn't lag ( haven't lag to me yet ) i have been constantly playing NOVA , Need for speed No limits and few other games, surfing on internet and watching VR its still working smoothly. Battery life is quite good. It does get warm after a bit heavy using but it not a factor to me .. each and every other phones does get warm. It feel great in hands but the sharp edges sometimes doesn't feel so good when you are holding for a long time. Only thing i am disappointed with is the Camera. The camera literately Sucks . feels like taking photos with cheap Chinese phone. i guess Z2/Z3 take even better photos than Z5. Low light performance is bad. It takes good photos on broad daylight but its not great. If you zoom a photo taken by Z5 you will see the results, sharpness is not that good.

  • Require Sony Mobile with Micro Sim

  • If you want functional dual sim, good networking ability when you travel, good camera at night, good battery life...etc,simply, find another phone,do ever buy Z5

  • sony z5 green color is amazing and looking very sexy compared to recent smartphones.. Good Design sony rocks!!!!!!!!!

  • Chnge your temperad glass

  • Phone seems to freeze on black screen after calls, and unable to end the call.

  • Well, its a good phone to use unless you have face any issues with your phone like continuous vibrating, over heating, lagging etc. it will never gets resolved by service centers even in warranty. If your vibrator is damage which usually gets (most Z5 users have complained) its may cost you around 25k-30k. Waterproof?? to some extend yes, but you go out in rain its gone of good.

  • This happens when the proximity sensor beside front camera is covered by the screen guard. Check that... it happened to me and I got a new screen guard that didnt cover the sensor and it works perfectly now :)

  • Salam,I have bought my new Sony Xperia z5,this phone after 15 days of purchase is creating problem related to proximity sensor,screen turns black during call and never glow again unless the call rejected, is there any solution of this problem? Please help me in this regard.thnx

  • Hi frnd buy xperia z5 is best idea

  • Is the heat issue had been fix yet? And which one should i buy for my birthday during this august, xperia z5 or nexus 6p? Hope you guys can help :3

  • Guys, i think i wanna buy a new phone during my birthday this august but i still confuse to choose between xperia z5 or nexus 6p. Anyone have any idea whih i should buy?

  • 100% support OTG

  • I want to know z5 is OTG supported or not, kindly tell me

  • It is one of the best phne, camera is excellent in daylight but in low light it's performance is bit poor. Heating issue is there but nt tht much. Overall it's a good phne and it's beautiful also.

  • Battery drains not toooo fast, but you can get 1 day with 4g on... Better keep a powerbank for emergency... With each release Sony is decreasing battery power

  • I am using this for 6 months, good phone, without any issues. Camera quality is best in sunlight, with less light, it is not the best. But, one plus 3 is 100 times a better option, but with no sd card slot, with superior camera quality at 16mpxl. My friend is having that, and shutter speed is too fast, also good in low lite. Last week I got a 98mb update, afterwards watsap, mx player, Facebook getting stuck, so don't update Xperia z5. It accidently slipped to floor 25 times, still no issues (with pouch). Further Sony stopped mobile production, so support would be an issue in many areas

  • Am all right with my new Sony Xperia z5 dual but friends its getting heated up a bit during file transfer or some downloading works. I talked with the guy at the shop he told that its mainly due to some bugs of marshmallow. Is there n e solution to this problem friends?

  • excelent phone, i have 1 week with it, it's perfect, buy it

  • I bought Xperia z5 dual 3 days ago. Its really nice phone but have some doubts. I use Quick charger UCH10 along with UCB11 cable. It is taking 2.15 Hours to get fully charged. Is it normal? How about you guys? Another question is Stamina mode showing 33 hours left when battery is 100% charged and i'm getting 1 day battery life only. I would like to know about this. Kindly reply me guys

  • Heat Heat Heat. Its Burning man. don`t Buy. Screen Pixels I can sea. Don`t walk in the sun even if it turned off. it will burning u. that is fault of my life

  • I think bought sony xperia z5 dual ? Your opinion

  • Wat about heating issue..? I wud like to buy one..

  • using Z5 DUAL GREEN since last 7 months, i proudly say this is THE BEST SONY DEVICE , specially after android 6 update, n latest update with build no 32.2.A.0.253 Makes it really awesome. Friends update urs...and those who want to get 1 , GET IT ASAP coz price slashed. best for those who operate device on right hand(finger print scanner),feels great to hold n use. on coming to compare to iphone, yes i do have a 5s, but iphone utility is no where compare to Xperia Z5, at least in india iphone is just for show off, real show stoper is my Xperia..ha haa..

  • Hi its same with my z5 dual, i just buy it at saturday and upgrade to marshmallow 6.0.1 but the first the call is work and sunday morning its always say "conection problem" but i can still send massages and browsing so yesterday i go to service centre they say its fix for 1 day Hopeful today it totaly fix and i can use the my z5 dual

  • Same here

  • Yes,there is major improvement with over heating.I initially had a problem with it over heating,but since I updated the device to Android 6.0 it cooled down and I experienced a major improvement overall in performance and the only issue I have is the finger print scanner it has a slight issue with scanning at a higher speed.I fully understand the flaws with the device,but I embrace what's good in it nothing is actually 100% that being said 95% efficiency is all I need.

  • all xperia z5 used SNAPDRAGON 810 chip which has an overheating issue but sony has a solution on it, they put dual heat pipe to reduce the heat...

  • Hi. I bought z5 dual premium 2 days ago and I also have issue 'bout overheating of this model. :(

  • sir how about the battery back up in marshmallow update?? i heared the news that theres a problem in battery..it drains so fast...

  • Fingerprint sensor very bad

  • hello my fellow sony fans,, i know SD810 has a heating issue (like in xperia z3+) and im sure theres also a heating issue in xperia z5 bacause they put SD810 but not too hot as xperia x3+.. i just want to ask if anybody here have already updated there xperia z5 from 5.1.1 L to 6.0/6.0.1 MM..is there any improvement about the over heating issue?? tnx and advance.

  • are you sure no more overheating issues?

  • After update 6.0.1 mm no issue, no more overheated,no lags battery was superb

  • Does the MM update still have issues? Is it worth it to update it?

  • please fix this heating issues of MM 6.0.1...... Please owner take action about heating problem of this unit z5 dual...

  • z5 dual Marshmallow saport?

  • Yes. Problems after 6.0.1 update

  • Do you have any idea regarding when you have started facing this issue,After Marshmallow update 6.0.1 right?

  • Im using this phone now, still warms but not overheated compaired to last lolipop version, marsmallow was graet and simple,, but if i compare this phone to my iphone 6s plus this is nothing...only great because of camera performance and dual sim, design and quality not bad but not the same as 7000 aluminum of iphone...

  • Overheat means overheat. No need to defend that faulty failure sd810 z5, heatpipes.

  • Refer the Youtube from the section 4.00 to the end. All of you will know who use the multiple ID in this page trolling and bashing Sony Xperia Z5 Premium. Please watching youtube below, espeically start from the section 4.00 to the end, it is a important information that Samsung not going to tell you. It's mandarin but I request my friends translate for me.

  • Because it has the snapdragon 810, a chipset know to have trouble of heat. Sony said they resolve the problem, but if you run a little your cell phone it will heat for sure. The Sony z3+ (z4 in Japan) was ruined by this chipset, people report not even being able to record a movie with their cell phone because the app was always crashing due of the high heating. Make a little research on google about this chipset, you will see. Sorry for me bad English, I am french.

  • Am also facing this issue. Green to red swipe portion gets hidden Also there is mic issue with 2G network mode. In dual sim, one sim is in 3G and other in 2G. Mic doesnt work on calls in 2G sim

  • Hi,why screen and back of my phone get so hot? More than z3 or z1

  • Hi all,any one facing issue with the call swipe UI after android marshmallow 6.0.1 update with xperia z5 dual.I m unable to attend call sometimes,it is hiding swipe to attend the call option.

  • guys i need recomend, what is sony best phone on the marketright now. please please tell me why u choose that type.. i need advice to by sony regards sony lover

  • Just bought a xperia z5 dual. Great phone overall, my only concern is that, it warms up pretty easily between the camera and the sony logo. Is it normal? Please help

  • My xperia z5 dual heats up pretty easily, please help. After using facebook for about 5 mins, it heats up on the top between the camera and the sony logo

  • The last update it getting warm, please fix this problem...

  • Amazing phone, it gets a bit warm but nothing serious. Other than that its perfect.

  • Z5 dual or HTC X9

  • This is my first flagship smartphone i ever have.

  • I owned a Z3 dual and now using Z5 dual. Z5 is much better than Z3. Other than fingerprint lock, it has higher storage of 32GB compared to 16GB of Z3 dual. Voice clarity also greatly improved and also wifi signal holding. My major issue with Z3 was the charger flap. You need to open the flap for charging. Repeated opening and closing makes the flap loose and waterproof is lost. Z5 is an improvement on this Battery performance i feel both are same

  • any marshmallow user here??is your fringer print sensor working?? fix update update has come yet?

  • I didn't mention anything related to Xperia X Performance, i said Xperia Z5. i have compare z5 dual and Z5.The picture taken on Z5 Dual is abit blur, is there anyway we can enable image stabilizer.

  • Brother buy z3 or z3 plus dont go for z5dual the both are same.the z5 metal they built are very cheap yesterday i sold it for 21k .i buy z5 for 45thousand and 2200 extra insurance My phone experience is very bad .just go for z3 or z3 plus the only thing you dont get the finger print scanner all the best

  • I. Love my sony devices but i have a bad experience with my z5dual sim it looks very cheap and the bending issues unfortunately when i kept in my pocket the phone get bend three places and no problem with my phone is working well i dont blame sony my z3 is very very good iam thinking why i upgrade my phone and if you have z3 or z3 plus just stick on that don't upgrade to z5.pleace sony your service centers are very poor campare to samsung,lg,and Microsoft my request is to give us good service if our devices get any service problems and issues of any accessories

  • brother,the difference in z5 dual and xperia performance is only speed of camera i mean speed of taking snap in x performance is too fast otherwise xperia z5 dual is same like x performance....

  • I have a question about 4g/3g/2g on the two cards. I've seen a US video about switching LTE usage (4g) between sim cards - but the Network Mode menu options had WCDMA, GSM, WCDMA (preferred)/GSM & LTE(preferred)/WCDMA/GSM. What options are there on a GSM/3G/4G (LTE) phone? I assume it's going to be similar - but with 3G replacing WCDMA? Does that mean that you can have Sim1 set to 3G(preferred)/GSM and Sim2 set to LTE(preferred)/3G/GSM? I'm thinking not as that would mean two data sims - which I don't think is possible? It's a bit of a bind as I'd like to use one sim for data - but the other sim I have only works on 3g/4g (as it's a Three sim - but I don't want to use up the data plan on that). cheers

  • i am planning to buy z5 dual but is it worth waiting for xperia x performance. though performance can be quite a more expensive than z5 dual. The price in India for xeperia X is itself about 49k.

  • It is an excellent phone concerning speed, performance and particularly the camera is really superb The does heat on two things, prolonged browsing with mobile data and prolonged video recording If u r on wifi all time, u will not notice heat Sure the z5 premium is better, but i picked this z5 cause of size matters, I see xperia x is not its true successor But i will wait to see user opinions' for some time after release, if the x also heats i will stick to my z5, coz let us face the truth that other than the xperia z3 and z3c, nearly all xperia phones do heat or at least get warm, Lets wait for x and see

  • do not cover the sensor

  • Use ASUS filemanager. Its good. Available in playstore free.

  • It is a good phone but I have a problem during calls the screen turns black and I can't go to phone book or any other functions as it doesn't respond to touch

  • Dear owner, Can you please update the file manager of this unit z5 dual, there's something wrong other wise I can download file manager in play store? thanks

  • Thanks for your genuine answer...!!!

  • a week ago i bought z5 dual. overall, its good phone. only one thing is i couldnt use my SBH52 directly call from it due to of dual sim selection manually on phone screen. only lite heat pbm. but acceptable.

  • YES it is worth buying , but if u can wait , so buy Xperia X performance . Xperia is the best Android phone , with no laggs , best camera, great display , great battery life , so u want more than this ??

  • I suggest u to buy Xperia X performance , ita really really good , best phone, if its not avialabe in ur country yet , wait for it , coz it worth

  • Just look at brightness , the brightness drain the bettery so badly , so turn on automatic brightness control , and when u dont need WIFI turn it off , also Location service and Bluetooth

  • hi all., is this phone dual sim active??

  • I am a z5 dual owner Fast Excellent display Excellent camera and sound Very good ringtone volume Excellent music output quality Good battery life, not excellent, z3 was better, for average user the z5 battery lasts for one day not two as promoted, but overall satisfactory It gets a little warm on heavy usage, not hot, just little warm, i am using a back cover so i dont notice the warmth, acceptable No hanging at all, no lag Marshmallow runs very smoothly on it and better than lollipop If u wanna put it short: for u to favor this phone over s-series, note, one series of htc...etc, u must be a sony fan like me to accept any cons and as u see its cons are merely present vs its pros Somehow pricey but worth the money and durable, i am not planning to substitute it with any new x-series or something, it is a very good phone, good luck and cheers!

  • I Plan to buy Xperia Z5 Dual sim.. whats your suggestion..? its worthwhile or not..? your valuable suggestion want... ( I want accurate answer only from Z5 owners only)

  • I started using the Z5 dual 4 days ago and my problem is the battery consumption. It's drains very fast even when it's just idling. I also switched on the battery saving mode but it doesn't help. Can someone help on this problem otherwise it's a great phone. Thank you

  • Dear Friends I wish to buy new mobile,My options are HTC one X9,Sony Z5 dual & Z5 Premium please tell these three which the best one

  • The comments really frustrated me I used z3c and z3+ and i say to u honestly that z5 dual is really a great phone, Compared to z3+, the z5 does not overheat at all Before marshmallow i did get a little warm, after it only gets warm upon video recording for a long time, other than that i really forgot how a mobile heats Wonderful camera, very good sound and satisfactory battery, super fast with no lag, no hanging, premium built, chic and wonderful one, this is an excellent handset

  • bro do u know meaning of 100 degree Celsius.................., what are u talking about. Think 100 times before saying things like this one ...okkkk.. Xperia z5 is really a great phone. Well done Sony. Make . Believe

  • If you wanna switch over from flagship level to another flagship level then i must tell you that Z5 Dual is the best this year as Sony is not going to release a phone which would be better than the Z5, so this phone is going to remain the current and latest flagship till 2017 and will surely going to get all the updates for a long time now (versus Z2: not going to get the next major update). So yeah, i would say, switch to Z5. ;)

  • Z5 is overall good but gets hot sometimes when using Skype and YouTube, also lacks build quality. (plastic feel)

  • Been using Z3, Z5 Compacts for a while. Z5 E6633 is a brilliant phone. Dual SIM features are fantastic for travel and for home. Android has implemented the dual sim on texting, data and calls really well. Way better than I would have expected. I love this phone!

  • it's good choice to buy this phone because everything is working very well. Camera is good and the pict is very clear.

  • Kindly explain more

  • hi al, i want ur opinion guys to buy sony xperia z5 dual???

  • Yes and no.

  • Very Best Smartphone

  • Check your settings. Have you ticked it off?

  • hey guys, I have a z2 and thinking of upgrading to a z5. can anyone with a z5 dual tell me if it's worth it?

  • Hello there. I just upgraded to Marshmallow. The phone is working much better. Better battery life, better speed and the overheating issue is reduced but it is there. The sound is the same. Poor and the top speaker is lower than the other. It is getting better after hours of use. The unbalanced issue. Not the sound quality. That is my upgrade review...

  • Guys guys guys... I am also have over heating issue, but Sony is doing that update for reducing over heating issue for this z5 owners still 6.0 but others old Xperia like z3 z2 are in 6.0.1... Sony gives update with all fixed wait Sony is Sony no one can change

  • I have some problem.. - Battery life not good as z2 or z3 - heating problem is very serius.. and that make lift up my corner back cover and i thing the waterproof from my phone has gone.. i bought this device last week and very very disapointed.. even i like sony very much this problem really make me down should think twice for next buying. i hope #sony can fix this overheat issue i am your big fans sony,,!!! please make this better like before.

  • When i first bought it, the heating issue was there for android Lolipop.. But after upgrading to Marshmallow, I saw the heating problem is reduced... Also I got camera update, which performance very impressive job in day light, but there is a lack of in low light.... Talking about software, I never face any problem for high end apps like asphalt8, GTA... My suggestion is to upgrade your z5 dual to Marshmallow... Then see the performance.... Thank you...

  • Mine is heating so fast. I haven't seen a phone heats up during start-up. Sony totally messed this one up. There is no pattern to the heating issue though. Sometimes it just heats up when I answer a call in Skype but not when playing Asphalt. Imagine holding a warm (ceramic) cup of coffee, that's how hot it gets. Aside from the design, form factor, and ability to be a second screen for your ps4, you won't find any happiness out of this phone because of the heating problem.

  • normal internet surfing heats up to 100 degree Celsius within 10 seconds, worst device, don't buy

  • Gets the back warm in a glimpse and battery drains too fast (normal 1 hr music playing, internet turned off, discharges 15%)

  • Go for setting and active ta OTG, mine is working.

  • Hi friends please help me I wanted to buy it but I saw many opinion about heating problem.I am not a heavy user.should I buy it or go for Samsung/htc.Thank you.

  • In the Android Software context, it means marshmallow. It is the latest Android version currently available.

  • Sorry but what is mm ?? And how can i update it ?

  • The otg of this z5 dual is not working big disappointed...

  • thank you

  • After update MM via PC, all problems I face solved (overheating and battery drain) I love this phone so much = 90/100

  • I bought this z5 dual on 19th of april 2016. I need 3 hours to charge my phone.quick charger is not doing its job...if anyone have soluti then plz reply me.

  • As for now, choose HTC. If Sony announced/released with new model such as Z6, go for it.

  • Yes I'm using cooling master and du battery saver, MM is awesome faster than KK and camera of MM is better than KK. go for MM don't listen to others nonsense comment.

  • ok thanks for the info. do you use cooler master?

  • about hitting that's the problem for this sony xperia, but marshmallow is better than kit Kat. you can download cooler master for hetting problem.

  • nice reviews..

  • is the heating problems solved?

  • I brought this z5 dual on 17/04/2016 when I opened with wifi I update direct to marshmallow 6.0 and it was handsome after updated. Take note after updated your z5 dual will automatically restart 3 to 5 times several minutes but don't worry there's no wrong about that.

  • update your z5 dual to marshmallow then install the Cooler Master - Phone Cooler (Picoo Design) that apps good for sony z series, I downloaded easy to use also..

  • I received marshmallow the second day after I received this beautiful phone. I from the Caribbean

  • no marshmallow?? seriously??

  • I've been using sony z5 dual for a week. Fast, smooth. The only problem regarding this phone is about heating issue. Not that bad, and a perfect phone doesn't exist though. Overall, I'm satisfied. Worth money paid. Good job, Sony!

  • Is is a long lasting phone?? Because I have no time to go service centre for repair.

  • Hi.. just curious bout the water resistant and the dust proof. Can anyone describe or give some comment. Thanks lot …>_

  • Thanx bro, well i just ordered the Dual yesterday and will be delivered within 3-5 working days. Im really looking forward to using it.

  • Hi bro.. im malaysian and it seems that doesnt matter whether single sim or dual and u dont have to choose to use which sim because u can set the main sim.. and the only matter is z5 generate heat.. but im satisfied using sony phone ..

  • Hello , I'm planning to buy a smart phone and I'm confused between Sony xperia Z5 Dual and HTC phones , please guys tell me which is better as the stereo sound is concerned , because i like stereo sound , 2 - and the heating issue which one has heating issue Sony Xperia Z5 Dual or HTC phones .3 - I would like to ask you is it possible to connect external USB drive to this phone ,,, Thanks in advance .

  • Excuse me! the material of the back cell phones Experia sony z5 are made ​​of?

  • brother dnt worry abt that if u use single sim in xperia z5 dual then ur z5 dual behave like a single sim phone and other thing if u hv two sims also then u hv option to select call,message as ur 1st or 2nd sim as a default...u dnt need to select every time ehn u go for message or call,so u r lucky if z5 dual is available in ur country,go for it without any worry..any more question u r most welcome.......

  • Hey guys im planning to buy the Z5 but in my country, only the Z5 Dual is available and i dont wanna go for it and im actually inclined to the Z5 single sim variant as i dont use a second sim. The thing i want to ask the Z5 Dual users is that what if a person uses a single sim in the phone, would it still tell you every now and then that this is the Sim1? or do you have to switch in between every text message and call and command the phone to perform from Sim1 or Sim2? P.S. these are some things i really dont want thats i just wanted to confirm before actually buying the Dual.

  • MM seems to be creating problems.

  • Guys i go to buy z5.. Buy or not ask to me please..

  • Play music in loudspeaker for 30min to 1 hr and later check

  • best mobile i have ever had (too good to be true), really go for it. very fast prosser, battry amazing, 32 GB + memory card, clear screen, clear sound, clear camera. beats note 5 & I phone 6s. thanks SONY for such ana amazing Mobile

  • anyone having problem in sound after update marshmallow version ... my z5 dual having problem in sound ... when i do sound setting the ringing sound is high bt when someone calling me my ringtone is slow thn sounds setting

  • Yes it is otg support, u can select detect USB option to use otg...

  • Does Sony xperia Z5 dual has USB-OTG feature enabled ? Please let me know It would be really helpful.

  • Sony Z5 not worth the money.....better smartphones with more features and less price are easily available in the market. This phone is only for Sony fans, who buys any nonsense under Sony brand paying any nonsense amount for their products. But yes, Camera is good. If anyone wants to buy a 23MP camera by paying INR 40,000...please go for it. else be smart and go for a much much better options with lesser budget...cheers

  • I updated my xperia Z5 dual to 6.0 Disappointing battery life, The bug is the battery optimization option is not working which drains the battery of the device. When ever I switch on the 2g data connection it hardly shows 9 hours battery life left unlike the lolipop version where battery life was good.

  • after,marshmallows it is freaking fast and battery life is also improved.There are no heating issue.It is more responsive than before. No issue regarding SD card

  • After purchase within 3 days I received marshmallow update and updated my phone now to marshmallow,it's good and battery improved,in dual sim settings somany change and only you have to select same ring default,this is negative and heating issue not solved and no change to improve camera quality...

  • Today , I got notification on my mobile ,says that marshmallow software update for my Z5 is available . Is it nice and safe ? what is your opinions about this update? Thanks a lot.

  • I used Sony Xperia z3 same time with LG G4 which are of the same architect and while Sony was exact rosy doing the same like Z5 , LG G 4 at the same setting and applications drain the same 3000 mA faster while you don't realize the heat for the leather back.. Quiet smart phones, right? But the problem is in the combination of snapdragon 810 and android... This is an evolutional transition shit, so we should live with this flaw until technology become more mature or you should better go for Mediatek or Exynos... They never disappointed me with same application, android and battery

  • Hello my friends. After my disappointment from HTC ME I asked a friend to give me Sony Xperia Z5 Dual for a 2 weeks trial... That was a bigger disappointment. I mean this is a very expensive phone (about 650 Euros in Europe) with a great built quality, very good specifications, and of course very nice looking and with front stereo speakers. I was happy with the camera and all the effects and gaming abilities that it comes with. But that is where it stops... First of all the sound is very very very poor... It is the worst sound that a phone with dual front speakers could ever have. Poor, low, distorted in high levels and when you open the phone for the first time the bottom speaker is so low that you thing that is not working. After a few days it adjusts itself but without making the sound much better. I believe that Sony has a long way before they make a good stereo sound quality phone. There is also a great overheating issue under heavy games as Tetris Blitz, Mortal Combat and Asphalt 8. I used a temperature gun and after 20 minutes of gaming it shows me 44 Celsius... The good thing is that during overheating it does not lags a lot like HTC ME did. I also noticed heating issue while charging and downloading but most of the phones has it. Nothing impressive. Battery life is poor. But if you use stamina option it can last for a little more than a day. If you use it normally and by that I mean usual calls, usual downloads, usual camera usage and usual gaming you have about 8-10 hours. Fingerprint nice working... I would also like less preinstalled apps like amazon... If you want you can install them yourself but anyway is a little annoying so many bloatware apps from Sony. No IR blaster also. But via bluetooth if you like PS games you can play them to your Sony TV if you have one... Well thats all my friends. Another disappointment from a great company. Anyhow Sony canceled the hole Z series so we are not going to be discuss about Z phones much longer. Sorry for my poor English...

  • Got the Z5 yesterday, charged it 100% nd started using it arnd 5pm,battery drained down to 15% by 11pm that same yesterday :( I

  • This is because in the camera app, the default image size is 8mp. The sensor is 23mp which is usually available in the manual mode. In the default mode, the big sensor is used for better low size images.

  • I got z5 dual on 9th feb. For 15 dqys the fone gave me top performance but from 2 -3 days its g3tting heating up even during small tasks. Battery performance is also suffering due to this. Though fone is lag free and superfast till no2 but how come this heating issue arose suddenly. Help and fixes appreciated

  • My friend is using this mobile. When running benchmark in antutu it shows camera as 8 mp instead of 23 mp. But in camera settings full resolution is set. What could be the problem?

  • Question, the Spec says Stereo speakers, but iFixit is showing only one speaker in the Teardown? I thought Stereo came with 2 speakers?

  • been using the z5 dual for some months now. here is my opinion. plus side: - i super love the dual sim card feature. this is because i travel frequently between malaysia and singapore due to work. - and unlike the samsung j series when u have to choose between having two sim cards or one sim card, one mem card, which is ridiculous, sony z5 dual lets me having 2 sim card and one mem card altogether. which makes sense. - and nope,you dont need to use a pin to open the trays, just use yur thumbs. for extra waterproofing, just make sure u use the protection case, which it deliberately covers the sim and mem card slot cover. - camera wise its ok, although some improvements on the app would be nice, for example tweaking brightness and saturation should be straighaway on the screen, not further selecting them on options which means further delay. - screen is ok, the adaptive brightness is quite fast to respond. -calls in and out are ok. -sound quality is great. now for the cons: - battery capacity is a stupid sick joke. i do not have to charge my previous z3 2 times a day. z5 dual 2900 mah battery is a total shit. - fingerprint is, although cool, but impractical to use, the failure to recognize rate ia simply too high. one piece of advice, scan your same finger at least 2 profiles, so it can recognize easier.... and if you do.a soft reset, you gotta redo profile again, which is ridiculous. - the screen ppi have to be higher, very easily having typos. you have to type slower, or stare at your screen.... pr adjust the keyboard size to the highest, or maybe its just the chinese typing app i had. i give this phone 70/100. not too bad, yet not too good. at least you can use radio and external memory card.

  • Sorry for the charging a game. Got mixed up.

  • Hello! I would like to share to you what happened recently to my Z5. I was playing CoC while charging a game. My battery was at 91%. All of a sudden it discharges to 90% while still CHARGING. Pretty weird because it's not a high graphics game. Now, after that, I took of with 90% and the next 12 hours of using it. It got stuck at 84%. I mean literally the battery percentage is just stuck. I have used the camera quite a lot, surfed the net, heavy call, and messaging . And It doesn't even go below 84%. I know it has good battery, but it was just something peculiar. After a reset. It went back to normal. Should I get it back or observe? Any reckons?

  • i liked the way you put across you sentiments,feel sorry for what happened with the phone..hope you have better luck next time

  • Ya both fones support both sims with lte but better go.for z5 then z3+...u know heating issue in z3+

  • Only 1 sim support 4g/3g...the other one 2g

  • Is anybody knew whether Z3+dual or Z5 dual, both SIM Card support 4g/LTE (Sim 1 & Sim 2)? or only at SIM 1?

  • i am usiing this phone last1 month. luk perfrct,browsing fast,camera superb bt i m very disappointed for over heating problems of this phone. battery drain very fast in uses in 1-2 hrs.

  • Sweeeet Sony. Hehe

  • As a user of this phone,after using it for few months I feel I made a right choice to change my galaxy s6 to Z5.the ui is much faster than Samsung. The battery life is just nice for me.the camera and the sound quality is superb. Highly recommend this phone.

  • After 1 week of use i came to following conclusion Speed and ui - fast and responsive Camera - superb. But after processing is bit slow. Battery- above average Screen- above average Sound quality speaker - average but clear and crisp Headphones sound - very good Heating issue- nonne or very less so far. Look - stunning I like this fone alot and yes finger print is ultra fast

  • M using this phone from last one week.. It gave me more then 4 to 5 hours screen on time. M not into gaming but m heavy user watching youtube using social media alot. At times it gives u more the 5 and a half hour sot. Standby time is also gud.

  • 810 chip is furnace. be careful to use gloves in gaming.

  • So true, and pretty Low to go post gibberish on Sony posts! Hehe

  • trollS always claim they are user.

  • Whta is the battery life for this phone?How many hours of enduarance?

  • Sorry my friend. Your phone doesn't have hardware problem. This is how it works. With overheating issues and poor battery life. Try to use stamina option. not ultra stamina. Just stamina... Your battery will last longer...

  • Hello my friends. After my disappointment from HTC ME I asked a friend to give me Sony Xperia Z5 Dual for a 2 weeks trial... That was a bigger disappointment. I mean this is a very expensive phone (about 650 Euros in Europe) with a great built quality, very good specifications, and of course very nice looking and with front stereo speakers. I was happy with the camera and all the effects and gaming abilities that it comes with. But that is where it stops... First of all the sound is very very very poor... It is the worst sound that a phone with dual front speakers could ever have. Poor, low, distorted in high levels and when you first open the phone the bottom speaker is so low that you thing that is not working. After a few days it adjusts itself but without making the sound much better. I believe that Sony has a long way before they make a good sound quality phone. There is also a great overheating issue under heavy games as Tetris Blitz, Mortal Combat and Asphalt 8. I used a temperature gun and after 20 minutes of gaming it shows me 54 Celsius... The good thing is that during overheating it does not lags a lot. I also noticed heating issue while charging and downloading but most of the phones has it. Nothing impressive. Battery life is poor. But if you use stamina option it can last for a little more than a day. If you use it normally and by that I mean usual calls, usual downloads, usual camera usage and usual gaming you have about 8-10 hours. Fingerprint nice working... I would also like less preinstalled apps like amazon... If you want you can install them yourself. No IR blaster also. But via bluetooth if you like PS games you can play them to your Sony TV if you have one... Well thats all my friends. Another disappointment from a great company. Sorry for my poor English...

  • which is the 4G slot

  • My mobile is getting hot very fast and I feel my mobile battery low very fast. So why this problem are? I bought this mobile only 2 days go.

  • I am in big confusion with Sony z5 premium vs note 4/5 vs s6/7 vs sony z3

  • My z5 dule batrry drain in stamina mood less than 10h

  • Are you for real? Do you even know what Ultra stamina mode do?

  • Guys...Warning Please don't activate the Ultra-Stamina Mode feature of this mobile, bcoz without asking it uninstall's all your major apps consuming heavy battery. if you don't trust me, then try it and let me know.

  • 2 days battery life... On moderate use. Mind it

  • No heating issue at all. Best phone, super fast, super smooth... Like no other.

  • Who is the best z5 or z5 premuime Batteriy?

  • battery drained out in 3 hour only

  • i am also facing overheating issues

  • Best phone ever... Ill advice anyone to go for it. Its like owning and driving one of the latest fascinating Ferrari! 😃

  • I have a Xperia Z5 dual sim and does not want to put in dual standby. do I need to select an option whether or thank you for your help

  • Very nice phone... I comapred it with iphone6s and samsungs6..but finally i am happy with z5 dual...very intersting specialy the camera

  • Can this phone upgrade to android 6.0 mm?

  • Z5/dual comes with Sony UCH20 charger... Z5P/dual comes with Sony UCH10 charger. go google those chargers to have an idea. based on some of my findings, Z5P indeed support QC 2.0... for Z5, its a little bit weird.. some can do QC 2.0, while some, like mine only does QC 1.0.

  • Z5/dual comes with Sony UCH20 charger... Z5P/dual comes with Sony UCH10 charger. go google those chargers to have an idea.

  • I am just wondering where some people coming from or they just know how to think. If Sony did not provide a dedicated chamber for the its speaker to provide sound baffle and absorb resonance, then its obvious that vibration can be felt around the drivers.

  • you have all answers on YT links :D

  • Hi, having Xperia Z5. Bought after many market search, superb camera, no heating issues compared to Z3+, and as Z3+ is having some other issues too, battery is also best., Speed, gaming all are best too. No issues with my friend's phone also in last 2 months...

  • I have got z5 premium dual for one week it seems everything is okay but I discover that while playing music with high volume level you can feel there is a vibration on the back panel specilay on the uper side ( uper speaker) I dont know if its a hardware issues or software issues. Its reallg annoying.

  • awesome fone !!!!!!!

  • I need a genuine help... I own a Asus zenfone 2 which was supposed to be fab but sadly I got a faulty piece and hence I'm broke... So guys plz tell me if I should go for Xperia z5 dual... I have had Sony before Xperia mdual which was fantastic back then... Now I m thinking of buying this one... I need to know about the heating thing that everyone is talking about.... And the battery lasting power after playing games such as criminal case, candy crush, cooking fever types and Web browsing....

  • If you are facing "auto shutdown" issue that time you can do fores re start the device once or other wise press power button and val + or - keys at simultaneously 15 to 16 sec other wise open the sim slot strip then press the off button or hole once

  • The internet comments you should take it as a pinch of salt.

  • Doesn't this have the same "auto shutdown" problem like that of the M5 dual?

  • No Marshmallow yet

  • Reviewers just said that the Z5 heats up quickly if you use it to run heavy apps such as gaming in a prolonged time and that's true but doesn't mean that the device is overheated, You do that on other devices and the same thing will happen. Again, heats up quickly =/= overheated.

  • then you are lucky...just go through the trailing reviews...most complains about overheating issues....why should i lie...may be i got a defected piece....enjoy your Z5

  • I have two z5s... black and gold I have not encountered any such issues of yours so you must be a troll, you must be liar.

  • Both are same except for the sim slots, Z5 dual will also get the same updates as Z5, Sony had already mentioned this in their blog.

  • Anybody know where to buy UCH10 in malaysia ? Or on what website to order (in asia of course) ? And Z5 dual and Z5 is just a same model and spec except for sim slot right ? So the z5 dual will get update same just like Z5 isn't it ? Please reply anyone.

  • Don't buy if you have hard-earned money, its over heating drawback will kill all your thrill of owning such an high-end mobile. Nothing worth paying such an exorbitant price for such an over-rated branded phone Believe me and don't regret later

  • Guys...i bought a SONY Geyser at 48,000....This Geyser looks like Sony Xperia Z5. Now i came to know why SONY made this phone water resistance, use it for 5 mins and put it inside water until it cools down. i think this phone is made for countries/regions with heavy rain or snowfalls, so that this phone gets cool down as soon as it heats up. but, this phone has its positive side also....am using this phone to light-up my cigarette, iron my clothes and make hot water for bathing. Lucky guys, if your phone doesn't heats up try your fortune in lottery too. SONY just lost one more of his loyal customer....Thanks

  • Me too

  • Since it is water resistant, soak it in a cold water when it gets hot. LOL!

  • I have been victim of over heating, and wud like to pass over 810 processor, even cooling tubes inside cannot stop it. Discontinuation, sometimes release three models in a row, to save it's bad reputation. Just wait for Z6 release with 4k full applicable. It wud be launched this year. All you people will, repent!

  • In soon i will buy this mobile........BUT i want to known How its gaming performanes?

  • When the OS well role out

  • Come on guys please reply my comment

  • No

  • It'll get the update once it is released.

  • Guys...z5 dual have marshmallow upgrade?.

  • still hot ?

  • Is this phone support quick charger in malaysia?

  • Yup

  • An octa core with 2900 mAm does this really work ?

  • Thanks a lote dear

  • hi, go to "Setting", "Sound & Notification", "Other sounds" and untick the vibrate on touch.

  • Sony has mentioned in their blog that the update includes all dual sim versions too.

  • I've been using Z5 dual for a week now. I'v got to say this phone is AWESOME.... Battery lasts around 36 hours with each full charge. I'm using a single SIM though. It gets bit hot when I browse web for a longer period with the data connection, but it doesn't overheat. Camera is lot better than my previous Z2, but I prefer if there had been more manual controls such as shutter speed control and manual focus. Overall it's a great device with great build quality. If you are planning to buy one go for the black color. It looks so stylish than the older black variants of Z series.

  • why z5 double sim not planed to upgrade to marshmallow like z5

  • hi gays can any one tell me how can i cancel the touch vib. and sound

  • my xperia z5 dual near abt 20 min in water bucket slip from my pocket in the bathroom but i dnt knw whn its slip after 20 min whn i hv need of my phone then i search and found it in the bucket...my phone works very well after this accident.....iam happy abt its waterproof option....

  • come with quick charger....but its depands on from which country u buy this mobile,some countries hv no quick charger in box with xperia z5 dual....

  • Guys .. I wanna know if Sony xperia z5 dual sim come with Quick charge 2.0 -charger or regular charger right out of the box!! If you have bought this phone, pls answer me. Thanks! ^^

  • yes..both slot can support Data 3g or 4g,,but cannot be sametime..u only choose 1sim slot..

  • Your G4 dual doesn't have fingerprint sensor and it's a big drawback. And is not water resistant, never mind, it is not worth to compete with Z5 Dual. Such a pity!

  • before u just call it a brick .. i think u should read a bit about its design.. its 9.8 mm at the centre and curves around the edges to nearly 6mm. and for ur info these designs are gtg to be known as more comfortable one's.. compared to the straight slab like construction using no sense of ergonimcs !!! plus it has OIS' which plays a vry important role for cameras... which sony is yet planning to introduce in their phones.

  • How to make a video call over this phn????

  • its very nice phone I`m a fan of Sony mobile the battery life excellent no heating issue after more than 25 app. download

  • @ Scuba1900 I haven't measured exactly but it was definitely long. I mostly use it for Whatsapp, Email, some music, some facebook, some instagram. Yesterday I left home at 1030am at about 100% and got home past midnight and still got over 60% (though yesterday I did check my phone less than normal). I always have stamina mode on.

  • LOL! Ever heard of dual antenna phone? Or the issue with iPhone 4 antenna being covered by the hand? I have tried lots of 4G phones and they have different signal reception inside my office even with the same network provider. Now don't tell me I am wrong! Right now I have three different units and only one of them have strong signal coverage no matter how I interchange their SIM cards. By the way I am talking about 4G/LTE not 3G or whatsoever!

  • I think you are referring to a wrong component of the phone. Its not the antenna being weak its the signal due to a low coverage from the network provider. The antenna is designed to a certain band width either 3 or 4G LTE that in a situation where good signal is acquired it will function at its maximum capacity. Farther you become the weaker the signal and since phone will tend to function as intended, it tries to draw more power from the battery to boost its receiving component so heating will occur.

  • It have no vedio call options

  • Heating on 4G phones has nothing to do with anything but the weak LTE network antenna of the phone. Phone heats up due to weak LTE network signal coverage but if the antenna is strong and gives full bar LTE network signal coverage, there will be no heating issue! It is another story for network provider without 4G.

  • Flop!

  • Please take note that your Z2 has 3200mAh battery while Z5 has only 2900mAh battery capacity. Don't wonder.

  • Hi - anyone having battery issues with this phone? I've had it for about a week now and I can't believe how often I have to charge the battery. I need to calculate it but with the following settings, this phone drains 50% of it's battery power by noon and continues to lose power much faster than my former xperia Z2: - Two active sim cards (one for work - ATT; one for personal use - Cricket) - Most uses during the week: Work emails, Word With Friends, Google maps to / from work, some phone calls, tons of whatsapp. I won't change the phone at all; I love everything else about this phone but the battery life is concerning. Any tips from anyone who has this phone? Thank you and happy holidays.

  • Does it have type C connector?

  • Your G4 dual doesn't have fingerprint sensor and it's a big drawback. A thick brick at 9.8mm and is not water resistant, never mind, it is not worth to compete with Z5 Dual. Such a pity!

  • Agree Dr Raja, he or she is so obvious hahahaha....

  • Hey, lets talk real here, heating is a lot different from overheating. Heating is practically normal mostly to the highly powered phones. All phones do heats on......

  • Does the phone charge fast?

  • How bad is the battery -

  • How long does the battery last?

  • Which shows that you're just a great troll...

  • Got my green dual Z5 five days ago, it's really a great phone. Never heats up and battery life is excellent. Zippy fast and responsive. Fingerprint sensor works a charm with many fingers. I don't really know why people trash-talk this phone so much here. Makes you wonder.

  • yes this phn overheats... at upper back side...when data is on... while charging....disappointment... best phn with overheating issue...

  • I,m recharging this nice phone twice or thrice a day. a big headache with a flagship phone.

  • 4 cores with 1.5GHz + 4 cores with 2.0GHz = 8 core

  • I think LG G4 only supports micro sd up to 128 GB but I guess you won't care about that :)

  • Im in KSA, the z5 they offer here is octa core, but how come it says here in gsm arena that its just quadcore.. 😓🤔

  • i too had planned to go for this... but reading the reviews over here i feel glad.. i went fr g4 dual. :-) it has excellent quad display, dual sim, memory card upto 200gb, excellent camera, good call quality... plus saved me the extra bucks which ud otherwise been spent... out of which i got a good class memory card and a qc 2.0 support power bank... all's well... damn happy...

  • My sis gifted me this phone...Man model heats up when watching movie or over data transfer. I can make omelet on back side.

  • For what having great camera but just can take about 3 minutes and then the application close because heating problem. We are in the tropical area.

  • Apart from battery life, everything is cool about this phone.

  • no..if u wan dual sim ..jus buy z5 dual sim,,model number E6683..not E6633,,don u but wrong phone..

  • ya,,sure have ,jus waiting udgradable 5.1.1 to marshallow 6.0,,sony company sure hav,,

  • To everyone,, hii,,,,still alot model dual sim canot both slim slot no support 3g&4g,,by i know only can 2slim can support 3g&4g is,,Sony Z5 dual, c5 dual.,samsung note5 dual,,Lenovo VIbeshot,,

  • afternoon,,mr pilot..no reaiiy all model dual sim can support both Data,,alot of model dual sim cannot dual sim support Data,,such as ASUS ZE551ML only sim1 can 4g&3g only,,the slim slot2 only 2g,,

  • A great phone overall, but heat issue still there... I've use a z3 before this..

  • all dul sim mobiles like that ...only one slot will support the 4g

  • ya,,both sim slot can support 3g&4g,,sim1 slot is support 3g&4g,,sim2 slot is only 3g,,.but caanot at the same time support Data,,u only can choose 1slot for Data,,

  • Agree with you. My Z3c was sent to service center twice for unsolve problem of could not switch on & unable to charge. This is a common problem as many are complaing for the same problem at center. Maybe the technician is lousy.

  • It will be updated to marshmallow, Sony has mentioned this in their blog "Assume this update includes all dual sim variants too".

  • Does the Dual SIM supports both LTE?

  • active

  • Went to buy Galaxy S6 ended up buying Z5, thank God I didn't waste my money, Z5 is superb.

  • is this phone dual sim active or dual standby??

  • No overheating issue . Its a nice and smooth phone

  • Nice lie, but the truth Is that the Z5 doesn't overheat.

  • Pfff I think the Z3+/Z4 is my last sony z phone... overheating shit is irritating coming from z2, z3, z4....

  • been using Sony Xperia, just bought this Z5 three weeks ago. Very disappointing product, overheating everytime I browse, take pictures etc. And I mean overheating like you cannot touch the upper back and upper side of the phone. I read that this overheating is because Sony had problem with current version of google and there's nothing Sony can do until google change the version. Really??? I'm so disappointed I will change my phone and will never use Sony anymore.

  • It will be upgradeable to 6.0 it's just that gsmarena probably forgot to update the spec page.

  • Any review after 2.0 camera update

  • Its a perfect camera more better than xperia z3plus and the battery backup almost 2 day

  • Why this phone is not planned upgrade to v6.0 (Marshmallow)? While the Z5P, Z5P Dual and Z5 are lined up for the update to v6.0.

  • 5 to 5 1/2 hours screen on time based on my xperience,hopefully they'll improve it on marsmallow update,

  • Very bad battery backup

  • The z5 is great, but the AR Fun doesn't work well with the back camera. It not recognise 3d objects and recognise only faces. I try to do same with my wife's Xperia M4 aqua and AR Fun with the back camera works well. I wait what the sony release a fix soon.

  • Previous z3 Great change... Excellent camera Fingerprint lock And display resolution and sound Good z5....

  • Is xperia z5 is perfect for gamers. Is this phone has heating problem

  • yes...what u want to do...

  • Is otg supported in z5 because its not working in my mob

  • I have Z2 battery never let down what about performance z5 battery please

  • Can someone tell me about the battery life of sony xperia Z5 dual and about its camera also

  • yes my friend it's 4k when recording video

  • That was comfortable and placed at the right place... Missing it on my z5 but by the way the finger print scanner has been accommodated.

  • Who asked you? I wanna upgrade and so I did..

  • Agreed. I've clearly mentioned that battery lasts 2 days on moderate use only.. But, still is the best!

  • today,z5 dual recieve camera update...cam open very fast,all settings changed , way of opereate changed,focus speed change,camera clarity improved to much in low light etc....

  • Not small enough and yet not large enough. Replaced my two other z's, a Z Ultra, and a Z3 Compact. One runs ATT and the other T-Mobile. Miss them both as the Ultra is the perfect size and function that combines phone and reader. Z5 has great features overall if you are in need of two SIM solution. Only other disappointment is that at times there is some lag that I did not have with the other two phones mentioned above. Camera is quite good on Z5.

  • Can anyone tell me about its battery life

  • Basically most of the people got power bank.

  • Only fingerprint sensor the advantage over Xperia Z3 dual and cameras, that's all. Why upgrade?

  • I got mine for two weeks now.Top quality phone,but the battery with no heavy use,to me last 7 8 hours,with stamina mode on.2 days battery xperia z5 never ever.My provius phone Nokia lumia 735 with heavy usage was lasting me very easy all day.Sony is laying about 2days battery.

  • You must have dropped it or must have been hit while the phone was in the pocket...

  • Mine manages two days comfortably. I would like to mention in not a heavy user, but a moderate one...

  • Me too... Bought it on 27th and got the smart cover today. It is really good!

  • Sound

  • 4K video is available for this model?

  • I am a great music lover. In 2003-2006, I was having 3 phones of WALKMAN genre, those phones were basic phones like KEY pad and Walkman software in it. The music quality was so good that I use to keep 1 phone in the bag, second in bedroom and the last 3rd one in the hall room which was connected to large speakers. I hope Sony will come out with new basic phones like before. These current phones are too expensive to be afforded by normal working person. I am one of them. Please Sony, release 1-2 basic music phones like before.

  • does this phone will have update to marshmallow, was thinking to own z5 or z5 dual

  • i think is the best one till now

  • xperia z5 dual or z5 doesn't have 4k display its only full hd display. It should have a otg support have tried.

  • They claimed "up to" two days, not an entirely false claim :) but at least it manged more than one day which not many present flagship phones achieved that.

  • No. superb camera

  • Nice phone very good looking. Camera is excellent radher than Z3. Many features added. Display 4K very real.Battery in continuous use goes one full day with 3g network. Two days in 2g. Its heat a little bit at the back wile playing game or videos. Fingerprint -- can add 5 different fingers to unlock. No OTG support.Else Nothin different from Sony.

  • Green color available for z5 dual??

  • what about the battery life ,in continues using ,

  • Don't spread lies brother... I own it and I can say it's louder than many phones out there.

  • a good phone.heats up not as much as z3 plus.problem is with battery . drains fast in battery saving mode also with 25 % brightness.Sony claims 2 days battery life on average use ,which is a false claim.superb camera and other functions.design is good but not contemporary.display is average.

  • Do you see any blur from left side after taking pics from your camera? as mentioned here Z5c and z5 both seems to have this issue.

  • it won't support a CDMA sim, what do you mean by 'true dual sim stand by' ?

  • Not at all bad, its far far better than previous Z2,Z3,Z3+..and louder too.

  • Volume and sound of the phone is too bad and it is not worthable for 50k

  • Liar

  • Does it support a CDMA sim??? Reliance or tata??? Is it a true dual standby???

  • No no, i never buy such costly phones online, I purchased it from a local authorized Sony center only.

  • i purchased in 45k..and i will also 5k in cash back scheme, its green color, looks very unique and royal.

  • M a big fan of sony... N i got this phone on 22/10.. N i was the 1st customer of bangalore, india... Camera n sound quality is superb.. Slightly heats up while using continuously.. Battery backup is not up to d mark.. While using mobile data battery drains like hell.. And d biggest issue was my back side glass got broken.. I didn't even dropped the phone.. How it could b happen for a phone of 50k indian rupee.

  • It's good camera phone n premium design. No lagging issue, very fast operating, Camera has ecxilent qoulity, very good battery life,, very fast charging, bright n clear display.. I give u 10 on 10........

  • Hi to allll sony fans like me, I just got my new Z5,....and there is a biggg surprise you know ? In camera, in auto mod, you can select full 23 MPs..yeeeeahhhh... will post more later on.

  • overheating is by z models not a problem cause you can throw then in water for a few minutes, ice ice baby

  • You wouldn't be buying their Cybershot cameras if you got all you've asked, don't you! Hope it helps!

  • what about overheating ? and when tuis phone going to avilable?

  • As much as I like the offering and momentarily nearly lost my mind and purchased it, then I remembered it has a glass back and is asking to be dropped.

  • I didn't get them either. I am sure it was some kind of the deal between Sony and CW but it's pathetic that you buy the phone for £550 and you don't get the earphones that cost £30 max. Shame on you CW.

  • HII,,everyone ,,need asking for Sony Xperia z5 dual sim,,isnt this model both slot sim card can support 3g n 4g,,or only sim card 1 is supprot 2g,3g,4g and slim card 2 is only 2g???

  • Picked up a z5 Last night from carphone warehouse in the UK, no headphones in the box. Am I supposed to get headphones ?

  • no words

  • Sony gave us a very good camera then then denied us Optical image stabilization and a 2k screen? Why Sony? Why? 23mp pics! 1080p on 5.2'' screen! Geez!

  • Will it have 2 day battery backup...?? Like z3, z3+

  • yes! except compact...

  • This new Sony's baby has stolen my heart. Now, I can't live without it. I going to buy it !!!

  • my next phone! :)

  • Water resistant & Fingerprint sensor...2 Options in this phone Sooooooooooooooooo good

  • Thus page for Real Sony fans only, Not band wagon jumpers for Z5P! Haha

  • I wanna buy it

  • this is very good I love it

  • Sony removes that weird looking round on/off switch FINALLY.

  • Me too!

  • this xperia z5 is great and has fingerprint sensor, I love it....

  • I want this!

  • How about the fingerprint sensor which is very convenient for unlocking the phone?

  • just do the simple way. the phone is waterproof, if it gets hot while using the camera, submerged it into the cold water.

  • Yes they solve it 100%

  • Power button inside the mobile casing as compared to volume and camera button.

  • Do all the z5 mobiles have dual sim option?

  • all problems have been solved

  • is there any solution for overheating of snapdragon 810 chipset? Camera work same z3+ or heating problem fixed? I was a fan of xperia. If problems fix in new phones, i'm in again!

  • Sorry dude but premium SONY cells are for people who appreciate performance

  • Copy of z2

  • Nothing different than xperia z2,z3 apart from the processor. Same look same thing. z2 and z3 even today works superb without any lag. So sony should stop bringing up 2 smartphones a year theory which has increased to more than 5-6 now. Probably they should focus on something new like curved display or maybe bendable smartphones.
