drose, 02 Sep 2015This is redemption for Sony. They finally made a PREMIUM device worthy of competing with iPhone. Actually the previous Sony phones were all better than any iPhones released. This would definitely put the 6S to shame. Maybe not with sales because we know there's a lot of brainwashed peeps who support Apple but with the specs and design, literally everything, iPhone 6S will never stand a chance to get any better than the new Z5 series. Even the Z5 Compact can withstand everything that the iPhone 6 can offer.
Sony is always good at designing. Original sony design not like someone keep copied others.
AnonD-315939, 03 Sep 2015People's complains about the screen resolution that it is a waste are just laughable. Remember... more... cpu/gpu have not caught up yet. Why increase now? Now you just have a pretty phone that lags. Foolish sony.
rj23, 03 Sep 2015Please Samsung! No matter how hard you try, your device will always fall behind the game. L... moreI am quite upset with their convoluted software update policy at this point, I mean if you really care about your consumers then update the Note 4 or any other applicable Samsung devices running old version of Touchwiz to the Latest version on Note 5 or Edge Plus Touchwiz then. Also, get on with making Touchwiz "M" ready for your devices for god sake b/c last time I check, you people still deciding which devices to get the update or not. WTF Samsung!
Jay, 02 Sep 2015Z5 looks great but why do Sony always come up short. So Z5 will have SD810 and micro USB. Anot... moreI got your point but it has not been released! Let us all wait for the device to be available and see the reviews. You cannot just rely on the things that were said about the Snapdragon 810? If issues have been resolved, why not give it a chance to redeem itself? Anyway, you are welcome to jump ships and use other OEM's flagship smartphones?
People's complains about the screen resolution that it is a waste are just laughable. Remember when QHD launched and people complained about it. It is same old story here. 4K display will catch on when Samsung and other Manufacture adapt the technology. Hopefully, when 4k display does go mainstream, battery's technology has improved by then. Kudos to Sony for trying new things and still keep features people love. The chrome colour option though!!!! Dammmm

Sony Fanboy! LOL
Look at your name! Gosh!

And the ones that do (home screen/launcher, browsers, photo viewers, etc) tend to not be very GPU intensive.
The 4k screen will be ideal for ps4 remote play which is exactly what it is aimed at!
AnonD-12245, 03 Sep 2015Good luck playing any 3d game on that screen with the gpu in the SD810. My Radeon R9 290 canno... moreThats different because it has to haul them graphics onto a monitor with a bigger resolution, this is only a 5.5 inch screen so its more than capable.
Good luck playing any 3d game on that screen with the gpu in the SD810. My Radeon R9 290 cannot play games at full quality at that resolution. Even clash of clans will lag horribly.
Adreno 430 will always rendering the dislpay 4th times than usual FullHD and twice of QHD display. I think it will be so laggy if it render high 3D game such as GTA SA, Mortal Combat X etc..
FFS, I wish phone companies would stop bumping up the resolutions without bumping up the GPU performance to match, at native res the Nexus 5 is still one of the top performing phones. Most phones with a better GPU have to push so many more pixels for native res that they will perform worse :(. Why can't a manufacturer just put a modern GPU in a phone with a 1080p screen?
AnonD-436414, 03 Sep 2015If my 15.6 inch laptop had this resolution I would be very happy.
it is wasted on a 5.5 inch ... moreWasted is the word for this. 4K even on the 15.6" screen is a waste. I do not see the pixels even with 1080p on a 15.6".
Remember the first Xperia Z was the first 1080p smartphone? Well, Even with 5.7" 1080p, no one can tell if that thing has even with a 2k resolution. Very pointless resolution for small screens, and who does VR with these?
