What is an unlocked phone?
An unlocked phone is a device that is not bound to any carrier or plan. It allows you to choose your phone first and your carrier second. Upon selecting a plan, simply insert the carrier's SIM card into the phone and you're ready to go. If you decide you want to change carriers down the road or want to take an international trip, it's as simple as replacing your existing SIM card with a new SIM and activating your new plan.
What are the benefits of an unlocked phone?
Freedom: Choose the carrier with the best service or price. If you find a better deal later, you have the ability to change to a different carrier.
Travel: Take your phone internationally and use the carrier of your choice. It's as easy as inserting an active SIM card.
Selection: Choose the phone with the features you want, whether or not your carrier sells it, and get more service options without a contract.
How do I set up my unlocked phone?
The first thing you’ll need is a SIM card for your desired carrier. When activated, the SIM card will let your phone connect to your carrier’s network. If you decide to upgrade to a newer unlocked phone in the future, you can easily remove the SIM card from your old phone and put it in your new phone—just make sure you get the right size of SIM card (nano, micro, or standard) for your phone. If you want to use your phone while traveling internationally, you can easily buy a SIM card for a carrier that operates where you’re traveling. As long as it’s activated, you can just swap SIM cards when you arrive at your destination.

Nevertheless I purchased the "XPERIA Z5 compact" as successor of my previous phone as I'm enthusiastic about the SONY Xperia Z series. The Z5c hasn't many improvements compared to the Z3c, but I'm convinced of the new processor which makes the Z5c really fast. The autofocus is much faster and more precise.
Until now the seals are tight even though I leave it sometimes in the sun. By the way, I noticed that SONY abandoned the previously promoted "pool-underwater-sceneries" in its advertisements, but only mentioned "Doesn’t mind a little rain". It seems to me that I've not been the only one with water-protection problems ;-)
The missing fifth star is owed to 3 points:
1. The battery doesn't last that long like the predecessor Z3c. The fast CPU takes its toll.
2. It's the camera which really disappoints me. The Z3c had 21 Megapixels, the Z5c has 23 Mega. Too many in my opinion. Nice-weather-shots are OK, but since the majority of my Xperia photos consists of flash-photography, I yearn for my drowned Z3c.
3. The US version - as the only one - has NO FINGERPRINT SENSOR! Why not???
What conclusions did I come to? I'd buy it again and again! If you don't attach great importance to excellent low-light photos and are willing to charge the battery every day, the Xperia Z5 compact is a great phone to an affordable price.
This phone looks really nice and it was nice to have a small phone. It is light too. It is a tad thick if you are used to thin phones. I liked the way the home screen looks.
I hated the home button being on the side but would have got used to it if i kept the phone. What was really annoying is that you had to press the home button to wake it up and then swipe up to get to how you want to unlock it. I set it to tap the screen twice to wake it up but most of the time it would not wake up and ended up using the home button. Swiping to switch the alarm off seemed to take forever and sometimes there was a delay in apps opening when you tapped them so I am assuming that the screen is not very responsive.
I decided to return it after a few days as I didnt want to be left with another phone that does not, in my opinion work properly, especially for the price.
I now have a $90 LG phone which works great. It wakes up every time I double tap it and swiping to turn off the alarm works first time every time too. I am really happy with it. I did originally buy the LG to tide me over whilst I saved up and take my time to decide which phone I want next as the last few have always been bought in haste to replace a faulty one. But I think I shall keep it for a while.
