Sony Xperia Z5 launches on October 29 in Canada
Last month, not long after unveiling its new Xperia Z5 line-up of handsets, Sony confirmed that the Z5 and Z5 Premium would both be released in Canada. Now, we know exactly when the Z5 will be available to Canadian customers (though there's still no word on when the Z5 Premium is expected to be launched).

Bell, one of Canada's top mobile carriers, announced that it's going to exclusively sell the Xperia Z5 starting October 29. The carrier will offer the smartphone in two color options (black and white), for 199.95 Canadian dollars on contract, or for 649.95 Canadian dollars off contract. Interested customers can already check out the Z5 over at Bell's official website (see the source link at the end of this article).

As you may know, the Xperia Z5 is water-resistant, just like most of Sony's other Xperia Z handsets. Size-wise, the Z5 sits between the Z5 Compact and the Z5 Premium, as it sports a 5.2-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels. Other notable features include a 23 MP rear camera, an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2900 mAh battery. The Z5 runs Android Lollipop, but will be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow at some point. For a closer look at the device, check out our Sony Xperia Z5 hands-on.

I am a huge fan of the Z3 but I would still get the Nexus 5x over this for the type c and stock android. $150 bucks can go into another toy and I heard the z5 display isn't as bright as the Z3
