Sammy, 19 Mar 2022Hi byebye pixel. Now im joining sony fan. Great camera love... moreI think it's too late now. But you probably won't prefer Sony Xperia's camera over Pixel 5's. Just check out Sony Xperia 5 II vs Pixel 5 camera comparison, you'll definitely note that Xperia's colours are more washed out, blown out highlights and photos are softer than Pixel's. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcJ_ZDQ4Xu4

TLDR Does not work in GCC
I got the xperia 10 iii a while back XQ-BT52 to use in Saudi Arabia, 5G did not work despite it supporting n78
So i got the Xperia 5 iii XQ-BQ72 that supports both n41 and n78, 5G still didnt work.
Did the *#*#4636#*#*
Result = IMS not registered
I have tried every single regional rom including china and russia, non seem to work.
Looks like ill be forced to get a stupid iphone mini as there no other smaller 5G device anymore.
I am extremely bummed out by sony not registering all regions.
This is why they fail to increase sales.

Hey guys I am not facing any battery drain
- 01 Apr 2022
Battery drain in standby/idle is not uncommon for Xperia phones unfortunately. 1.5% is around the average for a Sony phone. My Xperia 5 drains around 2% an hour, shocking. This drain is confirmed by Notebookcheck website. Some older Xperias, like my XZ are way better.

Try checking in battery manager which app keeps constantly eating the battery, its probably some 3rd party app that you installed thats acting up.

I'm struggling with battery drain on idle. I've removed everything I could, stamina on, everything i could have is on restricted battery, installed Naptime and it still drain around 1.5% per hour, after 8 hours of sleep it drains 12-13%.phone is on Android 12 and did software repair after update. Anyone having the same issue?

Anonymous, 21 Mar 2022So I got this phone recently. Really wanted to like it, but... moreIt is always recommended to do a Full Factory Reset & Wipe every Major OS Upgrade to prevent transitional upgrade bugs from previous OS. Ofcourse backup your files first.

Anonymous, 21 Mar 2022So I got this phone recently. Really wanted to like it, but... more12 hrs of screen on time?? wow. I would be super happy with the 7 you got. I have xperia 5 and I will upgrade soon to this as I made up my mind. warm phone? well, as long as it's not over 40-45 under charging or gaming it should be fine. I don't game often luckily.

So I got this phone recently. Really wanted to like it, but the few downsides to this phone really got to me and I decided to return it.
-Selfie camera is REALLY bad. I mean like midrange levels from a years ago. For some reason It always looks like it has some weird filter enabled even if you turn it off in settings. And it's not like you can adjust it with the Manual Mode controls, that's only available for the main camera.
-There is a considerable heating issue, however, to me it was more of an annoyance than major problem. It gets fairly hot while charging so I don't recommend using while charging. In normal use, it can get quite *warm* but I wouldn't say actually hot.
If those were my only 2 gripes I would have kept this phone. But then some other issues arose.
-I am not sure who to blame for it, either Sony or the OS itself, but It's not the most optimized phone. It is very fast for sure, but it seems apps close fairly frequently. Also this is just a complaint for Android, as I'm coming from an iPhone, but I also feel like most of the apps I use on it just aren't well optimized on Android compared to iOS.
-I updated the phone to Android 12, which is my biggest regret and the main reason I'm returning it. It majorly ruined the battery. On Android 11, I was getting upwards of 11 almost 12 hours of Screen on Time. On Android 12, I can pull maybe 7 hours. That's still decent, but it's still disappointing at how poorly optimized it is, and how good the battery COULD be if I never updated it
Those are my main issues with it, It's a really good phone on paper but the selfie camera is a major let down. If you don't mind the selfie cam, and can get the phone at a large discount like half off (I got mine for 650$) I would recommend it.
+Also I was using an international model on T-Mobile and got decent signal if anyone was wondering

Action.Pretty, 05 Mar 2022This phone has serious issues that made me personally skip ... moreA real review
"It's a great phone, I've had mine for a month or so now and most reviews are pretty spot on.
I got mine from amazon for $800 after returning the wireless earbuds it came bundled with. I would have gone for the cheaper intl version, but I needed the US version of the handset so I could have access to all the available bands for 5G on tmobile in the US.
So far, so good. Even with the latest android 12 update. No major issues to report."
