in the past year I ve had 3 sony z3 and one was worst then the other. The first was overheating and had display problems, the second was not water resistent what so ever, on the 3 rd the display came appart from the body and it's now in warranty service.
Am I haveing bad luck or Sony is now manufacturing high end cell phones on the knees?
DenisXD, 06 Oct 2015You don't save battery, that's sony's bull. All the 3840 pixels are still on even in 1080p so ... moreIt is to prevent battery and heat.. Battery usage will be reduced in 1080p, why?
Becoz cpu, gpu load will decrease a lot, high load means High power.. Low load means High performance, low heat and low power..
Anonymous, 06 Oct 2015Z5 turns 4K only when it needs..... what on earth is the point of that? Camera i can admit it ... moreYou're mistaken, it's the Z5 Premium than can run 4k resolution when needed not the Z5. The point is to preserve battery life, and not all android apps support 4k resolution at the moment. Don't like 4k? well there's the standard Z5 and Z5 Compact for you to choose.
Z5 turns 4K only when it needs..... what on earth is the point of that? Camera i can admit it has improved. but not worth throwing cash for just a little better camera.
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2015Like you know a lot about mobile photography? You think you're better than those Dx0mark guys?... moreDid I say I'm better than them? Did I say that Z5 doesn't have a better camera than z1?
Why this negative attitude boy? I'm only stating that there is some colour noise at these low light recordings, not that Z5 doesn't have the best camera.
Why so negative?
Guys, what a fanboy!
I couldn't stand that in every paragraph he is favouring samsung and iphone! These are the reviews that I can't stand, they can't be taken seriously!
I mean wtf? Why can't he review the phone with a neutral mind? Why can't he stay on the subject (which is Z5) and not throw comparisons at each paragraph?
All in all he says that Z5 is good, just not as good as S6 and iphone of course. Yeah way to go to show that you are paid by them dude, nice.
Is these the reviews the ones that we should base our opinion on? On reviews that obviously tells you "Buy a samsung or an iphone instead" behind the scene of their acting? Well not for me sorry, I use my brains.

They said that to create a bad image for z5c, the youtube user said that it wasn't an overheating problem and that he had a faulty unit.
phone arena were trying to make a fuss about it in an attempt to drop z5 sales. That was pitiful for their reputation and image. I advice all of you not to visit their site.

Yeah their tests and stuff are genuine but they mostly look down on sony.

All the 3840 pixels are still on even in 1080p so even if the resolution isn't 4k it drains the same battery. that trick is only for reducing the pressure to the already pressured soc.
Hopefully the battery life will be alright.

The screen of Z5P running in FHD has got NOTHING to do with software optimisation. The phone runs in FHD to preserve battery, increase performance and most importantly so that the phone won't overheat. It clearly says so in Sony's blog link.
You are a paid troll programmed to mock and criticise Sony. I dont have to waste my time feeding lifeless trolls like yourself.

It does not go down to 400ppi. But the nexus phone you mention has 520ppi or something. Which has more PPI? You once again proved your brilliance. Paid Samsung troll or what? It's a wonder why the mods don't ban you. I dislike many brands, but I am not a pathetic person like you to GO to it's forum and troll and irritate the others.

Here the true, the soc itself actually support 4K content. But sony put the same software with Z5(the software for FHD screen). Sony didnt tweak it to optimize the screen. Thats why it run at fhd. Its complicated And risky to tweak everything, not as easy as change the number in terminal emulator like you think. Thats why it run at fhd, and since the soc capable to render 4k, from z3+ its media player can play 4k video bcz the soc support.
Its 4K only for video, thats it. Words 'When needed, active, adaptive smart screen or anything else' are all wrong..
