4K is wonderful display, you must try it or you never know, that's all.

Lol....Sony seems to not learn from their mistakes of z3+...Going for sd810 again! And that 4k screen is going to be an overkill! Phones havent adapted well in QHd displays..Most of them are still refining 1080p panels yet and here they are bringing out 4k...Technology shud be adapted only when if its needed....Overdoing is just waste! And wait what will they price it? A fortune I guess! No matter sony and htc are going down!
Sony beated Samsung in race to 4k.
Anyway seems as if there is no entry level mobile like the e3 last year.
Just want to say Wonderful... A combination of all the best performances with Sony's premium quality and seamless beauty... Gorgeous...
Yes, 4k is overkill on 5.5" screen, but Sony did it first so props to them. All flagships will have 4k in a year or so might as well get it out the way and done.
I'll be interested to see if the camera has improved. As a photographer, I'm not really interested in the pixel bump, but it's the sensor and optics that matter.
An SD slot is another plus and battery size seems reasonable at 35000mah, but the jury is out on that.
My only problem is 810. It has had heat issues in every handsets it's been in and I don't find throttling the performance by 25-30% to negate this as an acceptable solution.
They should have put in the 820 SOC and 4gig of ram. They could have done that, because we will not seeing this phone in stores for months yet.
My guess is the Z6 Premium will have it and, knowing Sony and their stupid release schedules, we'll only have to wait a few months.

Does your PC have also USB 3 on it?
I also understand that you do not have any accessory,becouse they still have a micro usb,
Do you like to travel with a box of cables?
or are you just ...
I used to have a Sony P800 many years ago but got tempted into the Samsung range with the original Nexus. I was happy with these but as technology moved on, so did my requirements and expectations. Now, I want an all-in-one device that allows me to put in microSD cards for increased storage (and I can also take out and use as a "spare" for my GoPro), decent battery life for when in the field (sometimes many days at a time - I currently have a spare battery for my S5) and is also weatherproof (the "field" can be damp at times). I am less concerned about how it looks and form-over-function has never been my mantra - I need something that will deliver, potentially in challenging conditions. The S6 went off the rails a little for me and this new Z5 might just be what I need / want next.
Having said that, I recently been pulling together photographs taken on one of our little "field trips" and the quality of the S5 images in many cases was far superior to those taken on real cameras (compact cameras admittedly)... if the new sensor / lens / software configuration on these new Z5s is as good as they are touting, this could also be a game changer for the compact camera market.
Best flagship. But that heatdragon 810 is what I am concerned about.
