Introducing The Sony Xperia Z5 Star Experience (Or - A Phone Which Exceeded My Expectations)
After my Honor 6 Plus had lost one too many arguments with the ground (meaning the screen died on me) I needed a phone and I needed one quickly.  I was unwilling to pay £96.00 to get the screen repaired and lose the phone for the best part of a week.

I went to the Three shop in Gallowtree Gate in Leicester, where I attempted to buy their cheapest phone on a Pay As You Go deal - but they refused to sell it to me.  So I started to panic.

Eventually, I went back to the shop and spoke to another (more helpful) assistant who suggested I contacted the Insurance Company and they would send a replacement out within 24 hours.  This would still have left me without a phone - apart from that I had promised myself that (after my experience with Virgin) I would only use the insurance if there was no other way on Planet Earth of me getting a useable phone.

The problem I had with Virgin was that I had accidentally dropped a mobile in my toilet.  The Insurance company replaced that one.  However, the replacement started to develop serious problems with the connector for the flex to the charger.  The Insurance company refused to replace the replacement phone.  So I changed to the Three network.


I originally wanted an Honor 7 Plus but the shop do not stock that one (the Plus was the 32GB memory version) as a straight replacement.

The phone I bought was the Sony Xperia Z5 (the most up to date version).

There are good points and bad points about this phone.

The good points are that it has 32 GB built in memory as well as a Flashlight (even though you have to search in one of the menus to find it).  Oh and it runs on Android 5.1.

The most annoying thing about it is not the fact that you have to go through to the menu screen to get to your Apps (the Honor 6 Plus let you put your Apps straight on to your Home Screen) - instead it is the fact that you physically have to press the volume button until you get to Silent Mode instead of pressing the button to restart the phone and selecting your desired ringtone profile from the handily placed buttons which used to be at the bottom of the screen which asked you if you wanted to switch the phone off or restart it.

The screen is nice and big with clear, easy to read icons and menus.  I judge anything I intend to use by the size of the screen and font.

All in all it is a very good phone.
