Choose one: Sony Xperia Z5 Premium, Sony Xperia Z5 or Z5 Compact?
posted by Victor H. / Sep 02, 2015, 12:55 PM
Sony brought the big guns this time around and unveiled not one and not even two, but three new phones at IFA 2015: welcome to the Sony Xperia Z5 family, consisting of the Z5 Premium, the Z5, and the Z5 Compact.
In a nutshell, all three share the same visual style, design language and a fingerprint scanner embedded in the side-positioned lock key. All three come with the Snapdragon 810 system chip and all feature a 23-megapixel 1/2.3-inch main camera. And yes, all three are protected from the elements.
So what's the difference you ask?
Mostly, it's all about your favorite size - think about the three as an S/M/L size of the same piece of clothing. Also, it's definitely about the screen resolution: the Z5 Premium has a 5.5-inch 4K display with a whopping 800ppi+, the Z5 has got a 5.2-inch display with a 1080 x 1920-pixel resolution, and finally the Xperia Z5 compact has got a 4.6-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280-pixels.
So which one is the right one for you? Pick one and let us know why in the comments below.
Which of the three new Sony Xperia Z5 series phones do you prefer?
Sony Xperia Z5 Premium
Sony Xperia Z5
Sony Xperia Z5 Compact

180 grams, 5.5" screen way bigger phone than the edge plus, crap CPU and the big one it's not out to November and the price, it will be way more than the Samsung phones by then and be up next to the new iPhone hahhahahahahahahhahahahahahahhahahahah Samsung can easy get a phone out before them with 4k if they like at that size, but I be thinking this will not happen, but they can easy make one over night for the 3rd if needed as they had a demo note 5 with 4k and 4100 battery with a 7422 CPU in testing

Leaning towards the Z5, but the Compact is definitely a contender.

Z5 Compact is certainly going to be a benchmark chart buster. Personally, I'm going for Z5 too...simply because of the size and price. The rest are pretty much the same... Except for premium's grand offering.

Yes, but why is the Compact this time around so bricky and ugly? :-(( Actually the lack of these unsightly corner caps from the Compact should make the design better but somehow it looks very square. It also means that the Compact once more has a plastic frame rather than aluminium. That's not good. If I get a Compact flagship, I also want the same material as the larger flagships, not just the same internal elements.

Premium has 5mp front camera while z5 has 8mp? It doesn't make any sense, or maybe 5mp on the premium is better ??

Z5 premium. . .I know Samsung might be hating on self as to why it isn't the leader of 4k display. .it had chance but "pride" and wanting to be "apple like" lost their track of tech advancement and instead going slow ,reducing features to try and leap as Apple does. .poor Samsung. .this will make your senses cme back in 2016

I'm loving the Premium with 4K display but I'm afraid it may lag like crazy because there are way too many pixels for the Snapdragon 810 to push. Maybe when the 820 comes out 4K displays will be not suffer from lag
