    If i’m buying from the US i’m assuming this would be the best place to order from?

  • nfs2010

    Try Clove UK or eBay (a seller with high ratings). Both worked for me.

    I noticed that yesterday, but also saw that while it said “in stock” you wouldnt actually get one until monday… in some CWP stores thursday they had a highlight xperia display with a working x5 compact and a dummy x5… compare that to EE who have the Z3 on display and no mention of the Z5 even though they were first with an online shop pre-order (5pm, a couple of hours after the IFA presentation).. and their shop staff were clueless without even knowing it could have been pre-ordered let alone actually due out in a couple of days. So I still don’t have a date when the phone will be in my hands… I expect it will be 2 or 3 days after the sim free version because of EE firmware (and before you say don’t buy it with EE firmware I use cash-on-tap (mastercard backed NFC payment that was 3 years before apple pay!), wifi calling and “4G+” ( upto 90mb/second) most of which need EE firmware phones to work)

  • fried_egg

    I also say “expect 2-3 days” because i want to jinx it into being earlier by saying that!

    Carphone emailed me this morning to say my Z5 should arrive between 10 and 11 this morning. Excited!

  • Tom

    Just got mine, all thats in the box is the handset and a charger! Bit disappointing

  • 2pence

    Too bad. What colour did you get? I am looking for green. What store did you get it from? I am in London. Since it doesn’t come with a headset, I am not sure if I should buy from Clove instead now.

  • Tom

    Mines black. Its really nice. Though the back is more grey than black. The camera is very impressive so far.

  • Tom

    Got mine from Carphone Warehouse online Pre ordered it a fews days after it was announced at IFA

  • LuvMusic

    For all practical purposes, the Sony Store / US is closed. All you can do is review product and it provides links to where you can purchase. Sony is no longer selling merchandise through their “store” in the U.S.

  • Jaissal S

    So I’ve justed ordered myself a Z5! I’m so excited! It’s about time that I upgrade my Z1! Wahoo!

  • fried_egg

    ee are still “no idea” – compared to cpw who are delivering from monday, vodafone who are pre order for delivery from monday and 02 who are “in stock” delivery on monday… most depressing looking shops & clueless staff, “errr everywhere”

  • Jacky

    actually…i bought it through newegg, it was one of the sony’s network retailer. It would be great if best buy or newegg will sell them in the future

  • nfs2010

    How’d you compare the performance to your previous phone’s? I’m really hoping that your previous phone is the same as my current one (Z3+) lol

  • Tom

    My previous phone was the Z3 compact and then the Z1. I’ve not done a lot on the Z5 yet but have had a play with the camera and it is really good. Also the fingerprint scanner is really impressive too. You can set it to recognise more than one finger which is pretty good. You have to press the button in first, then leave your thumb or finger over the scanner for it to unlock.

  • nfs2010

    Thanks! Is it running as ‘cold’ as your previous Zs ?

  • apolloa

    I am thinking of buying one of these in black from Carphone Warehouse this month or next. Will buy it sim free.
    Can anyone tell me, what is their service like on dead pixels? I know Sony won’t cover it, but I had one on my Sony tablet I got from John Lewis and they exchanged it no problem.
    Also is the glass covering the camera on the back saphire glass or scratch resistant at all?

  • Tom

    Its probably too early to judge, I have spent a lot of time playing with the Z5 and so far I haven’t noticed any overheating. I haven’t done any 4k recording yet though, which I believe was the cause of previous overheating?

  • nfs2010

    I was asking about regular usage temp. So it’s cool. 4K was one of the reasons. Z5 should be more than fine for 4K as per the reviews. Z3+’s first FW was a big joke. But they updated it quickly. Sounds like Z5’s first FW is much better. Have fun :D
