Sony Xperia Z5 and Sony Xperia Z5 Compact now available in the U.S. with one major change
The Sony Xperia Z5 and Sony Xperia Z5 Compact are both now available in the U.S. The pair come to the states unlocked, but also without the fingerprint sensor that is embedded inside the home button of these units elsewhere. The Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact are both compatible in the U.S. with T-Mobile and AT&T.

The Sony Xperia Z5 features a 5.2-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 810 SoC containing an octa-core 2.0GHz CPU, and the Adreno 430 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of native storage. That actually provides 23GB of internal memory to the user. Those requiring additional storage can access the 200GB capacity microSD slot. A 23MP camera adorns the back of the handset, while a 5MP front-facing camera handles selfies and video chats. The 2900mAh battery provides up to two-days of power, and the phone is IP 65/68 rated for dust and waterproofing. Android 5.1 is pre-installed.

The Sony Xperia Z5 Compact has many of the same specs as its full-sized sibling. Changes include a smaller 4.6-inch screen, with a 720 x 1280 HD resolution, and the inclusion of 2GB of RAM. A 2700mAh battery is inside. The Xperia Z5 Compact measures 127 x 65 x 8.9 mm, and weighs in at 138 grams. That compares to the 146 x 72 x 7.3 mm size of the Xperia Z5. The latter tips the scales at 154 grams.

Another difference between the two is the price. Amazon will sell you the Xperia Z5 for $599.99. The Xperia Z5 Compact will cost you $499.99, and Amazon will ship both for free.
