bharat, 26 Nov 2015indeed this phone is premium for now but after a year it will be joke!!!!Yes .... and it is 1 month ahead LOL
better waiting for next year phones with newer chipset already at the door.
dont' waste money for another 810 crapdragon
Wait, so is vr not in 4k? That's pretty much the only reason you should have 4k really.
Please GSMArena, please stop this stupid new type of review system hiding everything and making us click what we want to see leaving everything else hidden. Its utter non-sense and total crap. Moreover after click on Click to reveal, it doesn't reveal all the content properly.
Please don't lower your standards by coming out with such useless idea of this type of review system. The earlier review system was way much better.
I hope you are listening to your beloved users like me who don't want you to go lower standards for anything.
Christian, 26 Nov 2015And here comes the bad news:Crapdragon 810 still overheats and takes huge hit on performanses.... moreI didn't have any heating issues with my Oppo R7 plus that has a SD 615 chip but you are quite right that the 810 has a bad reputation. However, not all phones with 810 have heating issues.
Impressive but no matter how fan you are of Sony, you have to think hard, is it any better iver a Samsung S6 Edge+? Is the 200Â€ difference worth over the Samsung?
Many Sony fans will probably jump over my comment and say how silly I am not to say yes. i like Sony even when it was Sony-Ericsson, which in humble opinion was a lot better than nowadays. The problem is that after the launch of the first Z series, and the novelty of the water resistance feature, none of the following models appart from the excelent design inovate that much to stand over the competition....
Many also will think a lot before choosing this phone because the Iphone...
I sincerely hope this phone meets the high expectations that Sony expects otherwise Sony will be the next HTC....
And here comes the bad news:Crapdragon 810 still overheats and takes huge hit on performanses.It seems that this SoC is so badly flawed,that there is no way around it.Every 2015 flagship that used it had problems with it,and they were some pretty nice smartphones to begin with.So the race to 64bit SoC will be payed very dearly by some manufacturers like HTC&Sony who happens to trust Qualcomm to much.Even medium phones with SD615 had a lot of problems this year....that happens when you rellyed on just one company without plan B.
bharat, 26 Nov 2015indeed this phone is premium for now but after a year it will be joke!!!!No not really. Let us avoid hypocrisy here, we know that this one's a very capable and a future-proof phone. If you're just going to rant or complain, then don't forget that we have a lot of choices available and we have the freedom to choose. There's no point in dropping irrelevant comments, esp. if you don't like it even fr. the very first it was launched.
indeed this phone is premium for now but after a year it will be joke!!!!
Anonymous, 26 Nov 2015And I'm pretty sure that makes you sound like a Samsung or Apple fanboy.LOYALTY IS FOR SLAVE
we consumer should go for what ever brand offer the best for our hard earned money

Lololololol you don't fanboys have always been as bad as apple ones
ithehappy, 26 Nov 2015Yeah, yet again a Sony phone with all bark no bite! 4K screen which no one will care about, a ... moreIs this the only review u have checked out? i can send u tons of reviews that suggest it has the best mobile camera out now. All these reviewers make their assertions from their personal experience and nothing more. The only credible and fore most authority is dxo mark, they are the world's leading professional camera rating body and they state categorically that the Z5 has the best mobile camera in the industry. Gsmarena and all the various sites only render opinion, none of what they claim is recognized and can be quoted in the industry or by professionals as standard.
MH-0, 26 Nov 2015I am disappointed ;( from 66h of battery endurance rate of this phone ...

Z5 premium is better.
Anonymous, 26 Nov 2015xperia series battery life destroyed in Z5 series battery life,it is not fault of sony.sd810 is very power hungry.
66Hour is a good rating.2Day battery life is possible.
The only area i dispute completely is with the comparison with competitors like the galaxy s6, gsmarena claiming its the best camera and video performer? if u want to argue with camera performance for stills no issue, but the fact u guys actually claim it records video better says bias i have to say. There's simply no device right now that can match the z5 in video stabilization and performance. That's a simple fact that has been proved time and time again with various reviews and comparisons. They can dispute the stills that's their opinion, i have also seen different but the video claim is ludicrous to say the least.
a good pick of phone if someone is considering buying one these days.
