Yes, it's special for a Real Man, James Bond
- Some Reviewers DIDN'T NOTICE ANY OVERHEATING issues during an hour long hands-on session with the device
- Fingerprints Sensor on the Side, it's a much more ergonomic placement, your THUMB (for right hand) or FOREFINGER (for left hand) naturally falls when you pick up the phone so all you need to do is push the power button and the sensor reads your print at the same time.
regs, 03 Sep 2015"first to reach the next benchmark in display smartphone technology - 4K resolution - and... morePhablet is a nickname for large screened smartphones, so it is a smartphone!
a 2 inch screened device, without touchfunctionality and with a numerical keyboard, that runs a smartphone OS, is also a smartphone, if the maker wishes to call it that.
A 8 inch tablet with calling capabilities, if called a smartphone by the maker, is a smartphone. Although many would perhaps not agree and say they rather call it a tablet first, they can't actually say that it's not a smartphone.
If somone makes a watch, with a smartphone OS and callng capabilities and calls it a smarthone, well then again that would be a smartphone.
If however a product is made today, that runs a smartphone os, but that only supports VoIP calling, you could argue that, that is not a smartphone, no matter the display size or dimension, or other physical attributes. But that could change, in the future, perhaps all calls will be VoIP in the future, so that could be a step in the evolution, and thus in reality that in fact would also be a smartphone.
AnonD-82480, 02 Sep 2015Lol,the funniest part(or irony)of this is going to be,that now anything less than atleast QHD,... moreXiaomi, Lenovo, Asus, or Huawei are possible prospects in cleaning/sweeping/mopping after these top brands. Xiaomi's Redmi Note 2 for example, albeit not top specs, has a launch price near $100
Amazing clarity with 4k regulations. Better quality than my note 4,I am wating for z5 premium.
error on posting, again. now because of long hyphen copied from the article... when all those bugs with a new site will be fixed?
and iso codepage? seriously? in 2015? fire a webcoder that uses it. it's dead encoding. it only brings problems. use only utf.
"first to reach the next benchmark in display smartphone technology - 4K resolution - and comes with a much-improved camera to match"
It's not a smartphone. It's a phablet. 154x76mm. Anything above 135-137x65-67 is a phablet.
Adreno 430 can achive 420GFlops (double than the Exynos 7420!!!)
it's mean that the Xperia Z5 Compact is the MOST POWERFUL GAMING Handsent in the world!

Absolutely Great and so Pretty very very much my dear Sony, very Nice. Love Sony, Love forever.
I see, the main argument here is that sony released a smartphone with a 4k screen that is just a waste, but let me remind you, they have also released a FullHD version. Will you people be getting that phone instead?

Monsterduc1000, 02 Sep 2015Nah. I know it's going to suck even worse than the z3+.WOW! I didn't know that techy fortune tellers exist! ^^
Dust and water proof checked
Geez! the only thing missing is sd 820
And 4gig of ram for Zeus lol
4k screen, what a complete waist of time and money iplementing, when the pixels are too small for your eye to even see, and the biggest annoyance is that they scale the crap of the screen, so you get zero usable space over the 720p screens for the majority android usage. I wish they just sort out 1080p so the scale gives you extra room for icons, widgets etc on the screen space by default because even if an 8k screen existed for phones it would still be a waist because it would have the same scaling
Anonymous, 02 Sep 2015Why would even people JUDGE the phone w/o using it first??? Some here comment as if they ar... moreVery good judgment! A lot of people here lack logical thinking. You have already said everything I wanted to say to those who did nothing but complain without waiting for the actual retail units to be released! ^^
TheNeighbor, 03 Sep 2015Wasted is the word for this. 4K even on the 15.6" screen is a waste. I do not see the pix... moreIt's not about seeing pixels.
I have to get really close to my Z3's screen, before I see jagged edges on letters and symbols. That up close I can even see noise.
From a normal viewing distance, I still see artifacts. They are probably most noticeble on completely white screens. Try to open a new document. Does it look like the screen is completely covered in white? Or does it look a bit spotty?
Most people don't really play graphical intense games, so the resolution isn't that much of an issue.
With LCD, the backlight, is the thing that mostly affect battery performance. And that is decided by the screen size, and not pixels.
With Amoled, the pixels themselves light up, so having a higher resolution makes the pixels smaller, thus they will use less energy.
4K might be overkill, today, since if you use graphical intense, it will affect performance.
But it's not completely wasted.
