Sony Xperia Z5: all the new features
posted by Paul K. / Sep 02, 2015, 11:02 AM
Well, folks, it's finally here – after teasing us with a rehash of the Xperia Z3, in the form of the Z3+, Sony has finally unveiled its “official” flagship for this year – the Sony Xperia Z5. A well-known rectangle with stark shapes, button placements coherent with Sony's omni-balance design language, and a glass back is what you will see when you first lay eyes on it. In fact, it may seem that not much is different. But is it?
Despite the fact that it refreshes its flagships a bit too often, we wouldn't say that Sony is in the business of releasing the same phone over and over again. So, let's check out all the features that the Z5 brings, which you won't find on the Z3+.
Only 3 new features? Well, to be fair – if you are looking at this, it is much more probable that you are probably interested in how the Xperia Z5 measures against the Xperia Z3 – the flagship, which was announced a year ago, and not the Z3+, which is only 3 months old. In that case, you should add the 64-bit upgrade to the list, as the Z5 rocks a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, while the Z3 has a Snapdragon 801 under its hood.
- Display 5.2" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 23 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, Octa-core, 2000 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2900 mAh(17h 3G talk time)

Same here, I've been waiting to upgrade from my Z3 which I bought on day 1. Now that the premium beast is out, am glad I didn't straight get the Note 5, and I believe not even the upcoming iPhone can do much compared to the Z5 Premium's list of offerings.

The black/gold version looks sick! I became really interested in this now, but it doesn't have OIS...

It has a special kind of digital/gyro stabilizer. No more fulldigital cropping stabilizer.

This is a nice looking phone. However, it will NOT sell. BE-cause it doesn't have what made the iPhone (aside from Apple brand loyalty) and Galaxy S line iconic.

If they've been releasing every 6 months, they're selling.

You mean because it has front facing speakers, higher megapixel camera (that may actually produce worthy photos this time), expandable storage, and waterproof design it won't sell. Yeah ok. People sleep on Sony but they offer a whole lot more than what Sony or Apple is. Not to mention the capabilities it offers for PlayStation 4 owners. If Sony got the camera right and actually worked to get the phone on multiple carriers, the Z5 would mop the floor with every single phone offered this year. If.

Sony made the same statements since Z1.. the camera is a weak point. it now "listened" to the customers? it did as well before, but nothing changed. The problem is, i don't want to buy a sony z5 compact to find out, the problem is still there with ridiculous image quality.
