Sony Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact unboxing

Sony Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact unboxing
Well folks, they are finally here! We have gotten our hands on a pair of brand-new Sony smartphones – the flagship Xperia Z5 and the “mini flagship” Xperia Z5 Compact. Of course, we un-boxed them in front of the camera for your viewing pleasure.

If you held out and skipped the Xperia Z3+, then the new flagship will delight you with a 64-bit processor, a fingerprint scanner, and a supposedly improved camera. The same is true for the Xperia Z5 Compact, which has similar hardware to the Z5, sans 1 GB of RAM (the Compact has 2 GB, whereas the Z5 has 3 GB). The smaller model also has a plastic frame around its body, whereas the bigger one has cool-feeling metal. But in all honesty – both look Sony-level good! Check them out below!

They all reviewed without sense. Just like Moto Droid Turbo 2 First look's video.

Hmm lemme guess. A score somewhere below iphones/nexuses but of course above the recent Chinese phone scores. I think PA already has the agenda. Lol

100% will be biased. I can tell you the major knocks already. The triluminous display is oversaturated and too blue. No Android Marshmallow like the A9(although there might be some slight merit to this one since if Suck T C could launch with Marshmellow, so can Sony. They should launch with the SD820 too to be honest.) Too much like the Z3 and Z3 + Of course all those are pretty bs and fake cons and the third one never affects Apple even though they are the major offenders. But you know that's how iPhonearena rolls.

Don't expect too much, for sure it will rank worse than all the i phones, that's expected from phonearena. U already know the real deal so really just check out their review with no expectations. There are a few sites i really don't expect much from when it comes to Sony ranking and Gsmarena and stufftv are the top 2 followed closely by phonearena

'If you held out and skipped the Xperia Z3+ , then the new flagship will delight you with a 64-bit processor..." They use the same processor I believe.

Pre Review Score Guess. 8+ If Not Then Pa's Authors Have Lost All Sense Of Reality. The One A9 Did Get A 7.8 After All And The V10 A 7.
