Just wondering how others are feeling about the Z5.
I had the original Xperia Z, which I loved!
I thought the Z5 would be my dream phone. I've been growing more and more disappointed with it.
Firstly, it's HOT! All I have to do is use snapchat, instagram, or any app for 5 minutes and this thing gets hot.
When it gets hot, it gets slow! I have a very simple installation. I have Spotify, Instagram, Snapchat and facebook. That's about it. This thing runs slower than my original Xperia Z runs currently! I have tried a factory reset and have all available updates installed. It just gets hot and then slow.
Apps are constantly crashing! This appears to be related to the heat issue again.
The fingerprint sensor works only about 20% of the time.
Phone calls are too quiet! I can't hear people talk, and I have perfect hearing. I press my head hard against the phone to hear then I get burned by the hot phone!
Calls are dropping! This is happening constantly.
Calls are inturrupted by half a second of silence!
Touch screen does not work with wet hands! I've seen videos claiming that the screen works perfectly when wet. Mine goes crazy! Every droplet of water acts like a finger touch.
Just an all round awful experience here. I'm really regretting this purchase after only one month. And I was so excited for this product. I wanted to love it!
Anyone else feeling this way?

Welcome to the community. I am sorry you're having a bad experience with your Z5.
Could you please start your phone in safe mode and see if you still have the same trouble?

You're right. I was being too generous with the 5 minute statement. I can feel the top centre getting hot seconds after waking my phone and using an app! The vast majority of my issues seem to be heat related. How did they get this so wrong? I don't even like putting this thing in my pocket because it makes my leg sweat.
I'll try safe mode tomorrow, but I doubt that will lead to anything. As I said, I have very minimal apps installed and they're all highly reputable.
