10 Xperia Z5 tips and tricks, or here's how I configured my Xperia Z5 Compact

10 Xperia Z5 tips and tricks, or here's how I configured my Xperia Z5 Compact
Reviewing smartphones for a living has its perks. One of them is that you get to try the best phones right after they're launched – you're free to use one as a daily driver, sometimes for as long as you want. As a result, you get a good feeling as to what a phone's strengths and weaknesses are, which is essential to writing a good review article. 

This post, however, isn't a review. It is about the changes I made to my Xperia Z5 soon after I started using it – about the settings I changed, about the modes and features I enabled or disabled for one reason or another.

I must make it clear that this article is based on my experience with the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact, but the tips and tricks I'll go over also apply to the Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Premium, and likely other recent Xperia models. Also note that the post is about how I configured my phone to behave the way I wanted it to. Your preferences as to how the phone should be configured could be completely different from mine, and that, of course, is perfectly fine. But I hope that in the lines below you'll find helpful tips and tricks on how to make the most of your Xperia Z5. And who knows, perhaps you'll come across a tweak you never knew was there.
