The device was only officially announced by Sony back on September 2, 2015, which is when the first hands-on reviews began to surface. Not to mention that it was just released to the world this month (November 2015).
Six months ago (May 2015), the Z5 Premium was still on the production line. You want people to believe that you have been using it since then? Lmao. Nice story.
And I'm not the least bit bitter about anything. The reviews speak for themselves. The Z5 Premium did not live up to the hype, and there's no getting around that.

They will impose their thoughts on people, tell them what to think. They will spread misinformation. They are cancerous.
Just like ISIS, and to an extent, some countries.
Guys everyone.... Stop complaining, you think its a small feat of engg that they have made a 4K panel in under 6 inches. That alone is worth it. And well add to that a multi aspect camera sensor. For all those who complain, better try and build it yourself, or rather ask the samsungs & the apples, why they didnt get there first.

I'll remember this day that you all bashing sony z5 premium for it's 4K display and when the day comes that samsung uses 4k display on it's smartphones i'll bash you all like hell!
Absolutely not. Very subpar device.
Lackluster battery life, non-removable battery, gimmicky screen, no built-in wireless charging, mediocre stereo speakers, unimpressive camera, gets extremely hot, throttles, and lowers screen brightness, etc. It's a mess.
Definitely failed to live up to anyone's expectations, if they're being honest.
Andrew Tan, 29 Nov 2015Only hot in design. 4K display in 99% render in 1080P is just such a waste. Camera sti... moreReally, did you compare the pics you took with A SONY Z5 premium, iphone 6s, galaxy 6 and LG G4, which you all own?
S6 edge+ is the better phone overall........Better screen, camera, battery life and performance. And then you get into the small things like better payment system, more accessories available, wireless charging. Simply no contest...
Aqua24, 29 Nov 2015Lack quick charging and the price!! If Sony could price it the same as Samsung S6 they could r... moreHere in Canada the Z5 Premium is $750, and the S6 is $730. So the price point is pretty even here.
Only hot in design.
4K display in 99% render in 1080P is just such a waste.
Camera still so so, not good until where compare with competitor.
MH-0, 29 Nov 2015*Positive :- -design (excellent) -build quality matirials (excellent) -camera (excellent) ... moreWell with 4k display even when only full HD resolution is playing all pixels are required for lighting thus when 4k screen the battery backup downfall was expected
-build quality matirials (excellent)
-4k display (not needed)
-screen size to body ratio (in this body, screen must be between 5,7" to 6" inch)
Irelia, 29 Nov 2015what???? arent there dozens of VR apps you can use? I have a nexus 5 and theres stuff like you... moreAs someone else said, the phone doesn't up the resolution for vr, it only does it for videos and images, and it's probably only with Sony's native apps that it does it for (but again, I'm not entirely sure).
Lack quick charging and the price!! If Sony could price it the same as Samsung S6 they could really have a chance. I doubt this phone will sell well. It looks like another disappointment again from Sony !
Of course it did. Everything is premium about it. Build, design, screen, sound, camera, performance, storage...
And the price, but competitive though
Good thing Im not interested in phablets :-)
Tho, batterlife is mediocre, but as expected, there is stamina mode afterall...
Lack of USB C Port is not great! And its display could have been a wee bit larger -5.7", Yet i still didn't have heart to mark it down, so gets a thumbs up!

Grey1213, 29 Nov 2015Exactly, but it only works with photos and videos. I don't think Sony has a vr app that it wor... morewhat???? arent there dozens of VR apps you can use? I have a nexus 5 and theres stuff like youtube and tons of other apps you can use vr with.
