Benj.dbs., 07 Sep 2015SONY Products have always been expensive - Quality & Durability. They've been doing this s... moreZ5 or Z6 Sony started poor quality products too. My z2 is lying in service center due to poor sim slot quality which suddenly stopped functioning. They don't replace under warranty. Take care guys. Don't end up with a costly brick like mine.
Heaton, 07 Sep 2015They should think about overheating issue before releasing new more powerful phone.A breakdown video of this phone showed that it has two heatpipes so they have done a lot to address it if you ask me.
Heaton, 07 Sep 2015They should think about overheating issue before releasing new more powerful phone.I don't think this will be a problem , they took 4K video with it for 10 mnt , without overheating issues , and for the record 10 minute there's no other device can take that and they stopped the recording

Anonymous, 07 Sep 2015810 is the only chip in the market that is compatible with 4K.They are using "thermal paste" on the chip to alleviate heating issues and Underclocking the chipset, I watched an actual review the gentleman said he was running 4k video and when the phone hit critical heat it automatically shuts the phone down to protect the CPU that has to be a concern

Bernie, 07 Sep 2015If the price tag is US$950 for this device, then someone will buy it for blind allegiance and ... moreHigh end phones in general are overpriced. But a high performance, design, quality and new tech can justify a higher price. This phone is packed with new stuff indeed, and some stuff that works better than on other phones, i.e. the fingerprint sensor on the side. I can believe this phone is worth this pricetag more than an iPhone or a Note 5/6 Edge plus for example, cause those phones really are overpriced for what you get. Personally I wouldn't pay such an amount of money for "just" a smartphone while I can get same specs for much less money, but many people will. The main reason for Sony to put the price that high is probably the 4K display, I guess.

Sony phones are built to last indeed, and they are premium devices no doubt about it that camera sensory in the Z5 uses (exclusive to sony only they said) is best in class I just wonder though what that 4k display will do long term to the GPU, it's hard to believe the phone wont get extremely hot
Oh flip! Look at that Pixel Density(PPI). Hectic. I'm a big Sony fan. But I think its time for better 8-core cpu's. Bigger storage
The display is amazing but in benchmarks the note 5 is going to crush the 810 SOC along with the 4 gb ram I have the note 5 running on a launcher disabled most of the touch wiz interface coming from a G4 and running the root booster app (which you don't have to have a rooted phone to use) I hit 60,000 plus on antutu going against an unDer clocked 810 there is no comparison
