How is the speakerphone with the Z5? I have a Z3 Compact and it is horrible (almost useless), with how low the volume is

The speaker phone is OK as long as there is not to much background noise- it's definitely not as loud as a HTC m7 but sounds clean from the front facing speakers.

Had both, never noticed problem with the speakerphone with Z1C. All "waterproof" phones have lower volume dont they?

My last phone was another Sony waterproof one and was no where near as bad as the Z3C...love the phone, so it's not enough for me to get rid of it, but would be the perfect package if they could sort out the speaker volume for the speaker phone. Its obvious it has the potential to go loud (as the music etc goes loud enough), its as though they back off the max vol for the speaker phone while on a call :\ Its a common complaint around out there with the Z3 so am not alone, but was just wondering (hoping) that they had it sorted :)

When the operator who provided it approves it and we don't know when that will be.

My Z5C sourced from overseas has had it for weeks.

Just bought one for the wife yesterday. I had to manually update it to marshmallow using experifirm and flashtool as the local operators don't have the update yet. I read somewhere that the experience is much better with marshmallow.

Just received notification to update to 6.0.1, anyone tried already?

 

I found current build is very stable and a bit reluctant to update.

Received this 32.1.A.1.185 update and it seems to have improved the response of the camera and phone in general.

That sounds good, spawning camera app does seem a bit sluggish at times.

 

Do post if you find faults with the new firmware..

Updated my Z5 a few days ago. So far the battery life seems to have improved and the general feel of it seems quicker. Have not had any glitchy bugs so far.

I upgraded from Z3 Compact to Z5 Compact, haven't updated yet but am already getting great battery life. With my typical usage my Z3 Compact would give me 4 days battery life, my Z5 Compact gets me 6 days!

I upgraded to Marshmallow on my Z5 about a week ago. Better battery life on standby. Haven't noticed too much else different, camera load time might be better - it's definitely not worse (that might not be possible!)
