    Sony E6603 reviews

    Xperia Z5 E6603 32GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Gold) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 52.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid phone Good phone overall, with a very good camera. Some issues at beginning with the upgrade from Android Lollipop to Marshmallow, e.g. in the transferring the data from/to pc. The phone comes unlocked, so it will work e.g. with AT&T and T-mobile. One amazing thing is that it comes with an expansion slot for microSD card up to 200GB, so you can store a lot of music, pics, videos and offline maps. Amazing camera with 23 megapixels. Its water- and shockproof, which is great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Phone which is easily My Favorite I don't put this phone beyond fault but it remains my favorite phone available in the market.the 4k resolution is astoundingly good and complementary battery life makes me happy that i'm not always on empty.I'm a fan of the clean look and size of screen; The volume and quality of sound from the device is awesome; the original Xperia sounds and ringtones are better than I've heard from others; Sweet colors for the phone; Immensely fast processor;Everything else any other smart phone does also. Cons of this phone: Good luck finding specialized accessories. I went w a $ casemate case and love it but the world is not your oyster in terms of 3rd party items to go with it. Best phone IMO. B&H shipped it quickly and without any issue. Very happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony quality and style This is my second Xperia phone. Like Apple, Sony starts from a great and distinctive design that it gradually refines rather than pretending to reinvent its products every six months. Design is distinctive and subdued and uses high quality materials. Remember Sony was fitst to introduce phone with a glass back which are water-proof. Samsung copied thar in 2015 with its Galaxy S6 line.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just like my previous Xperia, but better Waterproof; brilliant photos; vivid 4K video (great for photo previews); waterproof; now includes activity logging tool for pedometer and other activities; waterproof; very easy to upgrade from another Xperia phone. Did I mention waterproof?!? Use the phone in the pouring rain! Listen to music in the shower! Rinse it off in the kitchen sink! I've even used my Xperia as a coaster before! My last phone was an Xperia, my next phone will be an Xperia.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great phone! The phone has a great Premium and solid feel to it. It's very easy and intuitive to navigate through. It does get pretty hot thanks to the Snapdragon 810, but it's manageable, especially with a case. Amazing camera. Overall this phone is a great buy. If you're contemplating it, you're already halfway there and should pull the trigger.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this phone Had an Xperia Z for 3 years and it was great, but had an accident and cracked the screen so I replaced it with the Z5. Once I got it set up and started using the Z5 I was amazed at how well it worked, the speed at which it operated at, and just the over all feel and looks. This is a great phone, Sony did a great job with this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Phone This is my second Sony Xperia cell phone. I lost my Xperia Z3 last month while in the Philippines. The Z5 I think has a faster processor but less battery life.
