Anonymous, 19 Oct 2015Me either! It's hard for me to find fault with the cam samples. I checked them and the descrip... moreNo. You two are just being bias. The description of fairly accurate. The sensor is supposed to be great, but processing is not the best.
There will supposedly be an update, but this has also been the hold onto saving grace fans always claim.
We shall see. We can only hope. And the more extreme fans can say what they want about how the actuater and DIS works better than OIS but they prove it again here just like time and time again it's not.
And the lack of OIS can be part to blame for some of the more aggressive or less refined processing.
If they could just add OIS, maybe combine their current set up with OIS, finally for once get their processing right this could really really shine. They should add an option for raw capture so we can see what the sensor if truly capable of
AnonD-355165, 20 Oct 2015all benchmark score of samsung was chear and lie.No. The Exynos is a more advanced chip.
And back when people were pushing benchmarks Sony, LG. And HTC among others were found to be doing it too.
mir, 20 Oct 2015And Dxomark had the nerve to crown the Z5 as the best in overall image quality. They don't kno... moreYup. But most fanboys of course since then have been raving in complete denial despite other tests already being out that proved that wrong.
They have some good info and some terrible info on that site as far as tests go.
I love Sony's designs and think their phones are easily the most.. "useful".. but even I can see that the Z5 is barely an upgrade and this year's design is really pale in comparison.. It's still a nice phone but at this rate their one-year trial period isn't going to get them very far..... :/
AnonD-142922, 20 Oct 2015Cons - non removable battery ... seriously Garena ? come ooon drop this nonsense already.. It is overall a con and its not like they said this only for Sony.
leo R, 20 Oct 2015Good design but after 5 generations, it looks boring.The iconic engraved the word is the best and gorgeous then previous version, the fast and reliable finger print button is great position for unlock the screen, the front is the a hidden stereo speaker very clean and nice, the new design is great how can't you see?
Anonymous, 20 Oct 2015Sony are a joke, an upgrade with worse battery life than the z3 and z2??And that's different comparing to the other recent devices how?
I don't agree with GSMArena Sony phones reviews. what kind of pathetic sorry you are showing when you say we tried to show the positives of the device?.
I believe that " Sony Like No Other".
the best designs.
best build quality.

Very good for endurance and the display quality is push up by the pixels density, so it is good, then the 4.6 and 4.7 inch is slightly difference you can't perceive much more different from it.

AnonD-5666, 19 Oct 2015At 50% brightness, Z5 is very dim. Only 90cd/m2. This is serious cheating by Sony and makes th... moreI found my samsung smartphone is very bright and shine, it is hard for reading, I hope other company can copy this idea, because we can read comfortable and save battery in interior, while at exterior we also can get a brighter setting.
Vaio Agent, 20 Oct 2015even chinese manufacturer can design better look compare to SONY!No not really, Sony pays attention to small details. I think using a matte textured glass is one example. And to tell you, even the late Steve jobs admires how sony does their designs.
The best multimedia phone with best camera on a phone.
That SoC did hurt the batterylife though...but still good :-)
even chinese manufacturer can design better look compare to SONY!
