Actually till now I think the Z5 premium design and specs quite good overall for me but the heating and battery issue is where it fail big big.
If I have to choose a Sony Xperia hp now for daily usage I would rather pick the mid range XA1 plus as the size and batt life still works well, except the bezel still somewhat thick at the TOP & bottom.

I thought they have the 6" XA1 ultra?
Pity about the battery though.

You are right, however that is because of the SD810 SoC it is using, any other brand phone which uses that SoC had almost exact same issue to a varying degree. The reason being it uses more energy and generate more heat which cause the battery to run out faster and causes CPU to start throttling which causes lag as well.

Since then phones that uses SD835 will not have that issue, which means that XZ Premium, XZ1 series are good choices as confirmed by multiple reviewers and youtubers as being cool even after using it for some time and merely becoming warm after long period.

Xperia ultra Z was launched as a "flagship" phone way back in 2013. I think it was the 1st smartphone that come with "waterproof" feature.

C5 ultra and XA1 are mid range phone

Wait for CES 2018 in January, Sony will launch some Xperia~

Also lookout on MWC 2018 and IFA 2018 too, these are events where Sony will typically unveil new Xperias'.

First water resistance phone from Sony would be Xperia V before Z series appear. Before that, there were also Sony-ericsson Xperia Active and go.

Wow history lessons one, two, three.

Anyway, Z series is the proper flagship with waterproof qualities.

Xperia V is arguably not a good flagship, with only half the memory storage compared to Xperia T/TX which are only available in other regions.

8GB of storage seem miserable for apps, now and then.
But it has the redeeming quality of LTE support, that is lacking in T/TX.

Was aiming the TX with it's light up Xperia logo last time...too bad never made it to SG. Well, the V does have both water resistance and removable battery though..it is also the first time I keep on washing a phone with water.

And we thought removable battery is a norm that time, it would now be a godsend for Xperia phones and still retain waterproof qualities.

I still keep my TX in good condition, which I bought from HK.
The curves of the arc successor is still gorgeous.

Chio 8gb ram for real? Feel 4-6 is more than sufficient on a mobile device
