Some European Xperia Z5 Compact pre-orders to include free MDR-10RC headphones

Mind you, this is a pair of $120 earphones we're talking about, not a complimentary pair of buds. The foldable earphones boast cushions, 40mm neodymium drivers, sculpted air vents, an inline remote and mic, and their own travel pouch. All in all, the MDR-10RC looks like a pretty decent piece of kit, although their evened-out frequency response probably won't jibe with fans of phat hip hop and techno beats. But hey, you can't beat free, and these cushions should help keep your ears warm in the cold Nordic weather!
As for the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact, this is indeed a compact, but thick 8.9mm handset with a 4.6-inch 720x1280 resolution screen and IP68-certified water and dust-resistance. It is powered by an ubiquitous Snapdragon 810 SoC/2GB RAM configuration, offers a fearsome 23MP rear camera and a 5MP snapper, along with a 2,700mAh battery and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. An impressive little smartphone it is!
- Display 4.6" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 23 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, Octa-core, 2000 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2700 mAh(14.8h 3G talk time)

I still wouldn't get this phone. I own an Xperia Z1C and all I have had are bad experiences. Twice I had to send the phone off to be repaired under warranty. First time was the screen was faulty, second time water got into the phone along with a hit and miss camera and inaccurate screen.

Still need some clarification on the 810, has anybody reviewed them and mentioned anything about over heating? The Z compact series is such a work of art but the 810 just breaks the deal if it still possesses the same issues as version 1.

It's a shame they not giving anything away in the UK. I'm debating if I should try my first iPhone with a 6S or if I should get the Z5 Compact, the free headphones could have sealed the deal for the Z5C. I probably won't pre order if I decide to go with the Z5 due to there being a chance they might do a giveaway afterwards or if preorders are poor.
