Thanks for the replies guys. I see that there are people who would like to see Sony release something awesome. They have the resources to do so!

Another question: Why is Sony releasing INFERIOR products to the likes of Huawei, Xiaomi, ZTE, etc.? Heck even Huawei got things interesting with their "Leica, not just the branding (but yes it is)" dual lens gimmick.

Maybe the answer is so much simpler: that Samsung has all the right people working for them, in spite of their poor after sales support record compared to Apple, they are on top of the curve as far as Android devices go. I knew things would change when I heard about this years ago: http://www.wired.com/2011/08/android-cyanogen-samsung/

A question I'd like to ask whoever is in charge at Sony:
Why hasn't Sony released something better than the Galaxy Note7?

Sony have previously said that it's difficult to make money in the smartphone market due to all the competition etc, which is probably why they have a limited presence.


​This is true but they're still making phones so while they are why aren't they putting effort in to the right things? This is a gorgeous device but a little extra mAh and a fingerprint scanner for a price around £350 would have made it a whole lot more attractive to a lot of people.

Very similar to the Ultra Z mentioned above, I owned that and it was an amazing amazing device in its day but they may as well have not put a camera in it considering what they did install. There is always something fundamental lacking in a Sony phone and it's a design choice more that stiff competition... Surely if the competition are stiff for a reason? Cause they're not making the silly concessions Sony seem to live for X)

I've just bought this Xperia E5 from Vodafone and for £100 (well, £110 with compulsory £10 topup in-store) it's a great device. It's fast and smooth -more so than the disappointing Xperia XA, which costs more. Screen is good and readable outside in sunlight. Camera is OK in good light, but it's slow to load and take photos and not too good in low light.
Currently selling unlocked on Amazon for £149.
Of course, the Voda phone is locked to Voda. Looks like eBay sellers are doing an unlock code for about £14 but not sure how reliable that is because it's a new phone. But a good bargain if you're on Voda.
Hmm... 1.5gb RAM... Might be even compatible with pokemon Go
1.5gb ram and 2700 battery

only goodthing about this phone is it got Sony name and marshmallow installed on it
This Sony would be worth a punt at 60 quid but that's it. 100 is over priced. Plus you get more screen with the doogee due to having off screen capacitive buttons.

A Doogee x5 Pro! Well I assume you have no experience of using them because that is an awful device. Good luck if it goes wrong too...


​Got one. Its a decent device for the money and better spec than the Sony. I posted a link to a 50 quid phone with better specs than the Sony so there you are.

The phone looks amazing,but that`s it.Could be a nice buy around £120.Nexus 5X a big mistake from Google.
If you want a nice budget phone go for the one plus x or p9 lite,maybe one of the Honors.
Why is the nexus 5x getting so much stick. Stock android, 808 processor, one of the best cameras, v good fingerprint reader, good size, good price (169). Ive been tempted to get it for a while now but people r putting me off it
Is it buggy, have any common significant issues? Storage isnt a real problem for me
It is nice bottom range device,battery is not really good,camera a bit laggy.Wish they could make it a bit better,one of the best looking phone but it is overpriced!Pay £30 more for p9 lite and you won't regret it!
£170 overpriced bottom range phone? Bit harsh i think. Same processor as galaxy s6 which is £350 everywhere. My personal priority for a phone at this price is processing power and updates. I dont care too much about battery life. P9 lite i feel wont get very fequent updates


​the S6 has a snapdragon processor not mediatek garbage. This is a budget device the s6 is a one year old flagship no comparison

Jeez...is this a price-drop bargain website...or a tech review website?

Surely it's a bargain website ie the lowest price so far for stuff! Whether you like/agree with that stuff or not.

You can comment that it's not the lowest price...hopefully with a link to the actual lowest price.

But it's not a place to show off your tech know-how and try to score points for knowledge over other people.

You lot really could put people off from posting bargains here.



​The thing is, “bargain" is quite subjective. For example, you could spend £170 on this phone, or get a different one instead, or pay an extra £50 for a much better one. Just because it's the cheapest price doesn't make it worth of being a “deal", necessarily. That's the whole point of the comments section.

The XA RRP is 239, the price drop is because of the soon to be released XA Ultra at £299. And you get what you pay for mate.
I spend too much time following phone news sites and I can tell you that the price drop isn't becuase of the "XA Ultra". The first is a 5" phone whilst the latter is a 6". Sony's new X range have dropped in prices across the board within a few months of release because of their absurd pricing.

Any overheating issues? Reports suggest that the overheating is due to the snapdragon 810 process.
I have had the phone for over a week and with general use including constantly streaming from soundcloud, it only heats up a little bit. However when I am using chrome with lots ( 10-15) of tabs open it can get noticeably warm at the back. I think this could partially be down to chrome as I can stream films onto the phone and it will still not get as hot as when using chrome. Looking for a decent small device I still think this one of the best phones you can currently get

Mediatech well known for GPS problems, otherwise this would be an ideal walking phone.
Sticking with my m4 aqua hopefully itll get adaptable storage with marshmallow
depends how greedy sony are trying to push m4 users to the m5
they wont get me to do it my daily driver is a 1+ 1
​yeah ages ago

It might be ages ago but I use mmtracker with OS maps for walking and don't want to have it go wrong the location jumping about the map as the GPS fails. IMO Sony made a big mistake cheapening their phones with this processor why not get a cheap waterproof Chinese phone with the same processor.

On Sony site this phone is listed to get Marshmallow but mine hasn't updated yet.
Very happy with the phone so far. Camera is great, good quality sound, slim light phone and can safely be used in kitchen etc (the waterproof aspect sold me)

I've never tried sweep panorama so don't really know what it's supposed to do, but I've tried taking a pic with it and here are the results..https://s31.postimg.org/b0excz2nf/DSC_0026.jpg
P.S. if anyone has ordered an unlock code from ebay, how long did it take to arrive?
Same issue as I had with the black jagged edge. Idea is you can take a long panoramic photograph, the software should seamlessly stitch the image into one long sweeping photo. Particularly effective for landscape shots (when it works). Bit surprised that Sony have told me to send it back to them again when it's clearly not just a one off after all. Would appear it's a software issue then, thanks for letting me know.
This seems to be the only real issue and it is just a minor one with the camera app, and a mode that is probably rarely used. Normal photography and video give superb images and you can set the image resolution to suit your needs.
Aside from this it's a great wee phone, sure will prove to be a good buy
Ah right, I get it now. Yes, It's a really nice phone, I'm liking it.

No problem. Maybe they'll fix the issue in a firmware update, doesn't seem like a hardware issue.

Doubt you will get any replies, been asking for days with no response. Bunch of dicks on here
You're best asking on the Sony forums.
Found one poster on the Sony Forum with identical issue but don't know if they got it resolved.
Don't get me wrong it's hardly a major issue, only reason sent it to Sony was in case it was indicitive of something else that might develop. Actually more annoyed it's come back from them with a nasty looking pink T Mobile Boot screen and starts up in Dutch saying that this was the original software, language thing changes no problem but getting rid of boot screen is a different matter. Can't even repair the software using Xperia Companion as just getting error codes so will have to go back to Sony again regardless.
Again hardly major problem and certainly nothing to put me off sticking with it, sure the Compact will prove to be the right alternative to the Z5 for me....... eventually
Oh right, well when I get mine in the next few days I'll test the camera and see if mine does the same, and I'll post my findings here. I had the Z3 Compact and nothing came close to it feature wise with the small size and all. Then I bought the Moto X Force and I'm selling it and buying a Z5 Compact because I can't get used to the bigger size. the larger phones stick out of my jacket pocket.

Thanks, would be interested to find out. I've sent it back to Sony regardless as they loaded a different ROM and default language as well as not fixing the fault first time round.

Think you should be happy with the Z5 Compact's size as seems you are getting one for exactly the same reason as me.

I got my Z3 compact back from sony repair centre this morning.
so as mentioned earlier the phone started to loop when i was in a call.
sony have replaced the main board, sticker(3), display, case(3)- no idea what that means.
in regards to the main board, i knew this would be happening as a software repair using their tool didnt solve it. it had to be hardware.
i've lost all my data-not fussed
i've lost my glass screen protector- annoyed, as sony customer service said they wouldn't remove it. i didn't see a need for the screen to be replaced unless orignal batches really do have an issue pealing away.
the phone has been given a NEW imei number. this is the biggest issue i have as they have RE-LOCKED the phone. the costs are adding up now.
they said, they will always re lock the phone if the main board is replaced as it will be set up as how we got it.
so if buying from thieving vodafone who charge £19.99 to unlock on pay as you go or unless you have cleared all bills for 3 months on pay monthly, they will unlock for free with the documentation sony send back with the phone. you need to forward it to vodafone. however if you use a cheap ebay unlocker you'll need to pay again.
basically, avoid this phone. it will keep going to repair as it is poor.
their staff aren't helpful. i got it back in 1 week(5 working days) but my phone is still unusable due to the network relock issue unless i pay out more money..
thanks a lot sony
Mine died badly about 5 minutes after being in water (a few cm). Had to send it back for repair as well. After 2 weeks got it back with the usual main oard replace (essentially meaning they have given you a refurb back). As with you it has a different EMEI number and thus is relocked. The worst thing is that I encrypted the ad card so have now no chance of recovering the data on it. Great. I've chucked it in the draw. Will use it as an outdoor camera now on hols and that's about it.
MrWani
Got 3 in our household, great phones although not the most robust and Sony customer services are the biggest cowboys out there. The processors ageing now, and you can probably get a bit more power and efficiency from Chinese phones at this price.
I can confirm that it works on 3rd party companies using the Vodafone network (i.e. Talk mobile) without needing to unlock the phone. Also had to use a Firefox browser trick to order without compulsory £10 top up. There is a 'keep existing sim option' but it disappears before you can click it. Use Firefox, click "View - Page Style - No Style" and the text page appears allowing you to select the option.

Are there chinese phones of this size? I'm meaning phones that although being chinese seem somewhat/partly UK based in their selling, like Huawei. (And thus seem safer to order.)
Im really in 2 minds about buying this phone.

I bought the m4 aqua last year which is of the same design. Most recdntly the sd catch doesnt work, i can only speak when loud speaker is on, rear camera pictures have lines on them.

But at £150... This is tempting
Just to say I have it and it's my first android since 2010 so v different. V fast
Can't seem to remove the Vodafone apps despite unlocking it. No Vodafone startup logos or stickers so all good there
OOS everywhere by me :(

Not sure if anyone actually read the GSM review for the battery section on this phone but it's abyssmal. The S6 scores like 73h endurance rating whilst the XA 40 hours.

Yeah this. Ridiculous price for the spec.

Go for Honor 5C if you want a big screen, decent performance and £50 back in your pocket or Xperia Z3 Compact if you want small screen and stellar battery life. Both will be a considerably wiser investment.

So basically an M4 AQUA with marshmallow. Why not just send a software update?! Very poor screen resolution for a £192 phone.

They can't charge £192 for software update?

Anyway it does have double the storage of the M4 sadly they use more of it than ever on their software. Lacks the waterproofing too. Think the camera system better though.

Does this have the same screen cracking problems as other Sony phones?
Yup, same as pretty much EVERY other mobile phone, not just Sony...... drop it on a hard floor and there's a fair chance the problem rears it's ugly head :-)

Joking aside, you might want to stick to the Z3 instead of the Z3+ due to severe overheating issues. For anyone considering this deal, below is a review of both phones.........

From what I know the Z3 is probably preferable to the z3+, less issues, etc.

Agree, no coincidence that the Z3+ is now cheaper on the O2 site than the orginal Z3. My Z3 is still going strong without the Plus's issues. Great battery life. No need for me to 'upgrade' unless I lose/break it.
I have switched to Samsung after being a Sony user for years and years. I had the Z2 which despite being a lovely phone had several issues of sudden battery drain, not charging to 100%, heating up etc. My daughter had a Z2 that cracked the screen through over heating. She then upgraded to the Z3 which she still has problems with. My other daughter had the Z1 compact and her problems were really bad. Over the course of a year I was googling for solutions to these problems and hundreds were also suffering the same issues with no fix offered by Sony so that's why we switched to Samsung. S6 edge and S7 and absolutely love the phones no issues at all.
However I have no problems with my Z2 tablet.
But the newer Sony phones I would not recommend at all.

I miss my Z3 Compact. I sold it and bought a Moto X Force. I want something smaller.

The Z3c was a really good phone, the build quality, the UI was excellent.
Is the Z5 Compact's display an improvement over the Z1 Compact?

I bought a cheap Z1C a while back but had to return it because the display seemed very low res/low quality compared to my very modest Moto G (1st gen). Comparing the spec sheets, the Z1C, Z3C and Z5C all have the same display resolution but maybe the LCDs themselves have improved over the years....
worst phone ever owned
Why?
I can also state it is a **** awful phone with countless issues. About to send my second one back and be done with it.
It has way too much lag, software issues, google feature gets in the way of gaming as you can suddenly by accident activate it whilst playing. It marks pretty easily and is awkward to hold, something i foolishly thought id get used to.
Used to be an iPhone user, eventually got sick of buying new charging cables every month and being charged excessive amounts for the phone etc. Now i know why they are so much more than their competitors, they just do the job you want, and do it well. its at least miles ahead of the sony z5 in terms of general functionality. Going back to iPhone.
Comparing a mid-ranged z5 compact to an iPhone is like comparing a Ford escort to a Porsche.
As for the phone itself, kind of a concern that it's on lollipop with no signs of an update.
Mine is on Marshmallow Android 6.0
Nice! That the official sony update or via a ROM?

Just a standard software update.
It's funny how we used to be accustomed to spending so much on our smartphones. If the iPhone costs about $100 to make, this phone probably costs about $50. Though in the real world I think £300 is about right price for this phone, you do get the extra touches of quality and luxury which you don't get in some of the impressive value Chinese phones. I think theZ3 Compaq is an incredible price though. My plan is to get revenge on the phone manufacturers by never buying another phone again providing this one keeps going.
I think every where is starting to sell it at this price, even curry / pc world and carphone warhouse

What is this like compared to z5 which I can get for £300 plz.
john lewis are selling it for £239 and two year warranty but they it in black only.
For those who don't know what Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 is in the Xperia XA - it is the Snapdragon 615.

Oneplus One from 2014 uses Snapdragon 805.

The model number alone should tell the difference in CPU power. But since this is a budget phone and cost 1/3 less than OnePlus One, it is reasonable.
Anyone heard anything about a release date for the XA Ultra...? That's the only Sony phone on my radar right now.
Brilliant designed phone with the worst specs a no no from me.

to be fair, their policy is 30 days and £20 vs about £13 from other sources to fully maintain your warranty from the retailer I think is worth it.
I thought it was 30 days too but girl in store insisted you had to wait 90 days. Still a good deal if you're happy to stay with them 90 days.
Actually, you've just prompted me to recheck t&c online and it does say you have to be with them at least 30 days, so i was misinformed in shop. Thanks icstm X)

I had a nightmare with O2 trying this on an iPhone. Lots of time making calls to sort it all out. A few days after i'd paid for the phone and cancelled the airtime they debited 440 quid out of my account for the remaining 24 months airtime. Although they admitted the mistake, I was told it would take 14 days to refund. All sorted in the end but not worth the hassle.


Very similar experience when I bought the S6. Got a cheap phone out of it, & it all seemed to go really smoothly until I got a £400 bill. It took about 3 months to sort.

Z5 is way better than the s6 why you ask?

2 obvious reasons

1, z5 is water proof/resistant
s6 isn't

2, z5 has a micro sd card slot so you can expand the memory
s6 memory can't be expanded because it's not got a memory card slot
partner has Z5, loves it.

UPDATES

Ok, so firstly when I got my SIM card from the Vodafone store the other day they still had this offer on.

Secondly some answers:

Branding - Phone is Generic with no physical branding, it came in a Sony box.

Firmware - but there is Vodafone bloatware as it comes with Vodafone UK firmware. However a quick look at Xperia firmware shows that Vodafone UK are one of the best at supporting their phones over time, but I cannot check how quick after Sony create a generic UK firmware is there a Vodafone one.

Bloatware - there is plenty of Google, Sony and Vodafone bloatware that cannot be removed. Vodafone is the smallest (you can reduce to 1 app and 1 sim based menu), Sony the largest.
@icstm

Thanks a lot. Agree on the points you make, + if you could also let me know whether the actual case has the logo applied or not that'd be great.

Cheers.
@RGS Mine was bought for me as I am out of country this week. I will report back.
I am quite worried about that for two reasons:
1) bloatware can not always be uninstalled
2) If you are reliant on your network to create a bespoke build for any update (as we will be) you have to wait for a) android to release an update b) Sony to customise for M5 c) Voda to customise for them = QUITE A WAIT!!

Voda said last summer in relation to Motorola Androids that they wanted to sell them clean of bloatware, hope this applies to more phones.

I am hoping that @mrspydey can shed light on how best to unlock, without going the Voda route. Many eBay sellers claim they unlock all phones, but are we sure they can unlock M5?


@neozeroone how is the G4, is it worth the extra 50GBP?
Any stock they have on contract can be sold as prepay they simply change it on their system in store same applies to LG G4 shows out of stock online for all stores but when you ask in store most have contract that can be sold as prepay stock very annoying. Got an M5 and a G4 last week on prepay as both in stock on contract.
Do these phones have the Vodaphone logo applied to them anywhere or are they 'clean?'

not really.... true, the Direct Debit remains on your account unless you cancel it, however the companies like O2 do not bill you after the contract is over.
Well your contract doesn't end after 24 months... the minimum period ends. The contract becomes just like a one-month rolling contract. After 24 months you need to give notice to cancel or get a PAC and move your number to another provider if you want to end the contract. You won't automatically be put onto a SIM-only plan either.
I am amazed that people enter mobile contracts without knowing these basic things.
The point I am making is that the direct debit still remains on the account even when/if you move your number to another contract/provider and there is nothing to stop a malicious/error transaction using that dd.

As far as I know, you have to cancel the direct debit. it's not done automatically. I could do it easily via online banking in the past.

LG G4? Sluggish? Mine is nothing but buttery smooth, have you put Marshmallow on it? If you enable developer options and force gpu rendering it apparently helps when still on Lollipop.
Not sure if Marshmallow has rolled out OTA I had to use the LG Bridge software on my laptop but got it in December.

Some very nice tech for some very competitive prices there. Have some heat!
Thanks, I am tempted by the Honor 7 but I'm still not sure I want give up my xperia z2 just yet though!
Why would you make such a downgrade from a top of the range smartphone from 2014 to a low end offer?
Quite simply, because I want a new phone.

Buy your own phone and get a Virgin Media deal for under £10 a month.

£400+ for phone, £10pm x 24 = at least £640

Meaning that for anyone who hasn't got the cash upfront this isn't a bad deal....

Upgraded last August from a Sony Xepria T to Sony Z3 compact.
Best compact phone on the market imo. Just like everybody has said battery life is immense.
Also find the features especially the dlna feature excellent on their products. Stream a lot of films and TV shows through this feature , which works perfectly. Heat added.
Disappointed Sony are not continiueing this series. Hopefully they have something in the midst.

Yeah, they could do with putting some in their glass.

Good deal, last year in April I soend 300£ for my z2, now..it.a allll cracked, display nit so well too :))...
This is really nice phone, however has some overheating issues (due to Snapdragon 810). Might be worth waiting for some nice upgrade with 820.
Also performance-wise it's definitely something in the middle of the stake, but [obviously] interface is snappy, phone is very nice, screen is perfect, battery is OK for such phone (comparing to the competitors), partially thanks to Stamina mode, and micro SD port, this is certainly an option.
Just remember to buy yourself some decent launcher :) (nova is more than OK, today for 50p @ GooglePlay)

Sony won't honour the warranty if bought from a market place. Source: their tech support agents mouth.
They wouldn't if it was from a random ebay shop however in this case if the shop is sending out their own invoices with the packages I see no reason why Sony should not honor this?
No, I am in full agreement, they should honour the warranty. But they told me they wouldn't and would only consider it if I was provided with original invoices from sony to the ebay seller. Which seller is going to provide those? It's obvious they're unobtainable, they're definitely confidential, no ebay seller is going to send you their supplier invoices.
As it happens, that was only their first excuse. You see in my case, the problem was, I'd bought it directly off amazon. So they had to go away and find another reason once I proved this by writing a letter enclosing invoice from amazon. You'd think it would be easier to fix a phone, right?
Don't assume that having the law on your side is going to help, unless you are willing to fight, which will cause you a lot of stress, and they know it. Hardly any scorned consumers ever do fight wrongdoings, most just bear a grudge. So here's my grudge.
Edit: worth googling "sony mobile service center review" if you think I'm an isolated case. :)

Sorry kind of misread your first post, sounds like you found a jobsworth at the Sony center who wanted to take you for a ride. I've never had a Sony phone before or warranty issue with them, if i had one like yours i would probably be done with them... but used some friends phones and have been impressed so decided to move on from an iPhone to this, and its a decent price for a flagship, albeit this is 6 months out of date the next option is the S7 which is £550+.
I'll upgrade to latest Sony phone when this Z2 dies. Still a slick premium phone.
Hot price though

You don;t need supplier invoices.. by invoice all you need is an invoice from the ebay seller. As they operate as business they are likely to send individual invoices out on there headed paper which do not have ebay connotations attached to them. I buy off plenty of buisiness on ebay who send proper invoices. If they don't send a proper VAT invoice you are entitled to request one.

I've bought it anyway. If in doubt e-mail the seller and ask them if they provide a proper invoice for warranty purposes.
