Sony does have its ways though, annoying thought but this right here has to be the best smart phone in the world now . the fingerprint positioning is just perfect plus all the claims here are actually proven unlike samsung and the likes

Oh and btw that means you're saying that S6 active is also useless :P
The 4k is not essential as the difference will be hard to perceive. I would prefer the Z5 with the Snapdragon 820, 4Gb RAM and 4200mAH but it seems that may appear with the Ultra but at 6.44 inch that is a little large for the average size pocket
I think it's time to make a change in your user interface. This ui become really boring sony
what's new with the 810 snapdragon? on z3+ it was overheating? why are they still using it? didn't sony hear users feedback? didn't they learn anything?
Anonymous, 08 Sep 2015go figure -amoled degradation, amoled yellowing after a year, amoled brightness reduction on u... moreWell these issues are real but amoleds have about four to five years live and while i faced burn in on note 2 it was after about two and a half years. the effect on the note 2 is really so small you will need to look for it. but with time amoleds are becoming more long lasting and its amoleds that display the most accurate colors according to display mate. and i said iphone has the best lcd screen because it excells in most areas such as contrast and color reproduction as well as screen viewing angles. and to be fair i havent seen the xperia z5 premium so let me just give it the benefit of doubt.

You are right just partly, because 16-38Mp matters. I do not know how are those of sony, but that from samsung (my note3) are great(for 13Mp camera I mean). That was until I took a shots with 38Mp and saw awesome details without noise/blurr(usefull hi iso) (who cares then about some total color accuracy?). BTW did you see 1020s details in FHD video? Its like 4K one in others. Not to mention real feel of recorded audio up to 130dB, in comparison all androids got about max 100dB without distortion.

Seriously, iPhone doesn't 'hold a candle' against current android flagships. Look where the 41 MP lumia 1020 ranks. Even below Galaxy S4. So yes, more megapixels doesn't mean better camera. Even the Z1, for example, with 20.7 MP, can't match the 16 MP note 4 camera. There are.much more important aspects than megapixels, you know.

Most people prefer accurate real life natural colors, which iPhone and Sony and LG provide. Also, everyone knows how good Samsung's lagwiz is.

Are the phones really worth the premium price that Samy is charging only to drop it by 15-25% in 2-3 months after launch? Was one of the first to get the first Note; but now am sick of Samsung mobiles which lacks 'new' innovation. Samy is going the Nokia way i.e. sales trend will head down south. Better to try out the other brands.
Even with really great hearing, you don't really need high-resolution audio support in a phone. When you're hearing artifacts while playing 24/96 audio through Android's typical 16/44/16/48 audio layers, the distortion will at most be audible due to low quality resampling. If you use a high quality audio resampling tool on your PC (such as SoX) to re-encode your HQ music to Android's native 16/44/16/48 resolutions, there should be no audible difference between the 24/96 original recording and the 16/44/16/48 re-encoded recording heard through your earbuds or headphones from the Android phone's DAC. You've also saved a tremendous amount of precious space on your phone.
[deleted post]Don't u understand markets like oversaturated display,high contrast n insane bright huge 5.7 inch display. Market like many new software n don't mind the lag. Is anyone of you will want to buy an expensive phones n go swimming with it? Very2 useless technology
I wonder if having android means low audio recording quality, I wish Z5 line will be better than before in this.
Reasons that samsung rules android market. 1 st unbeatable display. 2nd tons of very excellent software that many other phones do not have n will not have. BECAUSE WE HAVE PATENT PENDING. So sony invest heavily on a useless hardware n u will close more factory.
High Resolution Audio !!!
Yes, my high-end headphones will usefull with this phone
Music Lovers / Audiophile should receive attention
