Anyone know when this phone release in Europe?

Anonymous, 31 Aug 2015Yes it use 4k display. But with the newly X-Reality Pro the screen will resize itself to 1080p... moreYes, it means 99% of everything you do with the phone, you'll be using 1080p, while still paying premium to get a 4k screen. Add the part where the current GPUs cant even do 1080p30 stable for the more demanding 3D games most of the time, and you have a pretty good combo for "useless innovation is useless".
On a side note, a screen with changing resolution? MAGICAL! #CRTmonitorsBeatYaToIt
0.03focus means with 30frames/sec all will be focused... :)
4k,expected great memory,IPXX. Whats more to wish?
i will stay with my iphone 5s unitil 2016,
my next smartphone muss have sd 820 or another 14nm process and usb -c ( it will be the futur standard usbport)
and ddr4 ram and i think sony is close enough. annnd goood optimisation.
funboy of the next sony compact (z6 or z7). :))
Anonymous, 31 Aug 2015Yes it use 4k display. But with the newly X-Reality Pro the screen will resize itself to 1080p... moreWhy would you want to watch a 1080p motive with 1:1 scaling on a 4K phone? It would be a tiny thumbnail.
Yes it use 4k display. But with the newly X-Reality Pro the screen will resize itself to 1080p res if you play a 1080p movie, and so on. Yep its brilliant. Means that it will not stretch the 1080p video to 4k. Nice.
camera, tech and looks beasts :)
DROID23, 31 Aug 2015SD810?! how stupid are you Sony...and then say the smartphone market of the brand is down...if... moreSmarta$$, do you have any other top notch available option in the market other than 810? SD820 is not out until another 4-5 months! So, stop complaining!l
And.... the video is taken down. Looks like fake one ? no idea but everything about Z5 is being taken off the web.
Sony, whose industrial design is second to none, should learn from Apple: The tech specs do not matter, it is optimisation that does. A 4K display will mean sluggish performance and have little positive effect on text or video quality, as the human eye cannot perceive much less. Most importantly, their target buyers do NOT read books on their phone. Apple are stilling using lower res displays and yet selling millions of iPhones because they optimise the performance.
Sony would be way smarter to focus on making their devices more reliable and truly water resistant. To start, why not dispense with the microUSB port (why no USB C if at all?) and use wireless charging, so there is NO need for any ports. I have a Nexus 5 and 3 wireless chargers, and it's SO much more convenient and means no stress on the USB port. Great phone BTW, even if two years old now.
Deepak, 31 Aug 2015If i am buying an expensive flagship, it must have USB C port!(heck all phs must have it) Beca... moreIt's also a bit disappointing that the Z5 premium is restricted to 5.5" (not all but a lot of us here use & need larger displays on our phs -6").
The larger premium device can probably dissipate the heat if properly engineered . Also its the 2.1 version of the chipset so it should be ok. The battery life is gonna suck if youre watching a movie at higher resolutions ...no way it lasts 2 days.
The only negative I have right now for this is ... wtf 3 gb ram ? everyone is using 4 ! and you call this a flagship ? They probably did this to save battery tbh...
ugly design poor think .....
this is da crashy
If i am buying an expensive flagship, it must have USB C port!(heck all phs must have it) Because I would like to keep it for a couple years! So this is disappointing Sony because lesser newer ph makers have already started putting this brilliant ports on their phs!
While this promises to be a step ahead of the game with 4k display and 2days battery charge....i have a few problem with d post. It didnt make any mention of micro sd card and if the battery wud be swapable. And then theres the SD810...even if it doesnt heat the past xperiences have made people to stay away from anything SD810 even when it doesnt heat. Samsung should release their exynos to other brands. They would make tons of cash.
