The best phone for me In the short time

I'm writing a review from cambodia. I'm a simple user. The best in Display & Camera. After I use about 1year I noticed on volume up & down and camera button amost go to silver color. I feel it's not premium products as its name. Anyway I really enjoy watch MV & movie with 4K resolution.

Even though the 4K mode on the Xperia Z5 Premium may not be always on, this phone will go down in history as the world's first 4K smartphone and this single headline feature is enough to carry it forward. Pricey or not, the Premium is going to do well on the market and we're sure it will account for lots of the positive sales in Sony's annual report.

So is it really the revelation it was supposed to be? -Well, not really. Can you spot a substantial benefit over a QHD screen of the same diagonal with your bare eyes? -No, not really. Is it a phone worth getting? Well, it may as well be - it's still a Sony flagship and that stands for something, doesn't it?

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium review
The Xperia Z5 Premium gets most of the feature checklist right - there are the stunning looks, the beasty performance and the high-end camera, which is full of potential. Sony's take on Android and its proprietary apps are great as well, especially with all the visual and functional integration with Sony's PlayStation consoles and BRAVIA TVs.

But the true gem is the 4K IPS display, which offers the groundbreaking 806ppi screen density. There is no denying this is a world-record achievement right there. But there is a catch - you can have native 4K resolution only on multimedia content - when viewing images and playing videos. Everything else runs in an upscaled 1080p resolution, VR apps included.

The good news is this way Sony probably saved the Xperia Z5 Premium the headache of some really poor...

Pros

  • The class-leading display offers 4K resolution and unbelievable 806 ppi density

Cons

  • Battery life is good at 66 hours of endurance rating, but not class-leading. The video playback battery test is disappointing
