    I have a Z3 and I absolutely love it. It's never had any lag. I love the almost stock Android and battery life is AMAZING

    Everything looked great. OK, it's a 323 PPI display and only has 2GB RAM, but I could look past that for the size of the thing.

    And then I saw the price. £549 (that's currently $837.12 USD). Wow. Ouch

    No way it costs that much in USA. $599 max. And yes the size and battery life are both awesome. Nothing else really like it on the market.

    I found a reliable 3rd party retailer that is much, much cheaper. £439 ($669 USD) for Z5 Compact.

    I'm tempted now! Very tempted!

    That's a bit of difference Note 5 v Z5C lol.

    The Z5C looks great though with some nice specs.

    I've placed a pre-order with Carphone Warehouse. Due to be delivered on the 29th September. Went for the coral colour option because I'm bored of completely black phones, I want some colour

    Been using the red z3c. Love using this phone. Would upgrade to z5c when the price settled maybe sometime next year.

    I'm already impressed by the Moto X Play's camera so I can't wait to see what Sony has cooked up. It's going to be awesome

    I’ve got the Z3C and I think I’ll probably upgrade, but I think you can easily defend not upgrading as well.

    For me it really comes down to the following:

    a) how much better is the camera and will the Z3C camera be seeing any trickle down improvements (this is a weak spot for the Z3C compared to the competition)

    b) are the Snapdragon 810 heat issues solved (sounds like they are)

    c) how well the fingerprint reader works (sounds like it works extremely well)

    d) hopefully more solid/sturdy build due to fewer flaps (my Z3C screens have had a reoccurring problem popping when pressed)

    I really like the bump to supporting 200gb microSD card (which I presume the Z3C is not getting through a firmware update?), exposed waterproof USB port, and a bigger battery is always a bonus.

    Downsides are that the Z5 is thicker and it loses wireless magnetic charging, which I use and wished they would have kept since they didn’t at Qi charging.

    Thicker? Yeah, a whole 0.3mm thicker. C'mon, you really gonna notice that in hand? Everyone's losing their minds about how much thicker it is. It's 0.3mm thicker. 0.3mm not cm. Millimetres. Fraction of a millimetre. 300 micrometres.

    It's because of complaints like these that phone makers put smaller and smaller batteries into phones these days! Don't y'all like having bigger batteries?

    You don't need the magnetic charger. It has a proper, uncovered USB port.

    i am a student n here in my country there are no contract phones....soo i have to buy it at full price....note 5 around 720$ without warranty...and with warrenty 850$....so if i buy one n its breaks....i have to pay for service...but i cant afford...where the z5c is cheaper it is around 550$ i can save few bucks....in terms of specs....screen,ram n spen is not my first opinion.....i needs a phone which do everything good....overall z5c is really compact and there is less chance to drop it than the note 5

    Wow, this forum is dead (where is everyone?). There's a frenzy of activity on Motorola and Nexus sections. Sony? Nothing. And we're only 10 days from the official release!

    People really just don't care about Sony do they? Shame. I'm super hyped for Z5 Compact. Sad to see that so few share my enthusiasm.

    Yeh, it is very dead around here. Very excited for the Z5 range to be released, considering selling my S6.

    Just got myself a z3c instead of a iPhone. Saw the z5c in the shop today and would definitely consider to trade up. Just a notch nicer all together.
