Xpadder, iPhone 6 is from 2014 if you're comparing it to 6s.
You have to compare Z3 from 2014 and Z5, now you will see more change. Except for Ram and screen.
Sony's touch capacity buttons is not good as Samsung phone. The back button of sony left side which is worst site of the phone
AnonD-439997, 23 Sep 2015screen is the same (only premium has 4k) processor is the same battery is the same ram is the ... moreIphone again? And no, it's practically the same device with another colour.
Sony Z5 is different both outside and inside. 810 on Z3+ was a nightmare of heat, better call it heatdragon 810. On Z5 Sony has fixed the heat problems and Z5 can even record 4k for more than 10 minutes non stop while snapdragon is just warm, not hot.
Z5 has a 23mp advanced rear camera when Z3+ has the same 20.7mp found in all previous z phones before it. Z5 has hi-res audio support (not that I find it useful because after 320kbps of mp3 the difference is almost unnoticable, but still it supports ultra quality music).
Z5 has a fingerprint scanner when Z3+ doesn't, a frosted back glass panel when Z3+ doesn't, edges around the glass panels for protection when again, Z3+ doesn't.
Yeah, the same as Z3+ no kidding now. Stop repeating yourselves and deal with it. Z5 is better than Z3+ and any other phone out there
DenisXD, 23 Sep 2015Please go back, check their specs, their appearance differences then try again. You don't do... morescreen is the same (only premium has 4k) processor is the same battery is the same ram is the same the only thing has changed is the camera and they added fingerprint scanner even iPhone has changed more sooo yup
any one know if it supports RSAP (remote sim access profile) (I am in Europe)
AnonD-439997, 22 Sep 2015this is the same as the z3+Please go back, check their specs, their appearance differences then try again.
You don't do something right.
R2 D2, 23 Sep 2015I'm sure that the endurance iphone 6s will not be able to beat xperia z5:)only on this aspect? Z5 has stereo speakers, micro sd slot, water resistance, radio, durability, higher resolution screen, great 23mp camera etc.
Iphone 6s is no competition to these, Z5 is easily the better phone. Iphone users are IBrainless lol.
AnonD-430761, 22 Sep 2015I'm sure that they will not be able to beat iphone 6s in single core performance i doubt Z5 will be faster, at this aspect I bow to Iphone. But on everything else? Z5 easily outperforms the new Iphone so.. next.
AnonD-430761, 22 Sep 2015I'm sure that they will not be able to beat iphone 6s I'm sure that the endurance iphone 6s will not be able to beat xperia z5:)
I'm totally in love with Sony phones, it has been a great experience so far from the walkman series to the Z series like: Z, Z2 & now Z3 superb specs & performance, no other brand can beat Sony.
AnonD-112143, 22 Sep 2015and what's going with the Z5 is nothing but sheer marketing , sony phones truly sucks even com... moreperformance and better on paper? I don't care for these and I didn't even mentioned them, you did.
The fact is that iphone doesn't have what xperia Z had for years, microsd slot, stereo speakers, durability, radio and resolution. I don't care if on the end iphone is a second or 2 faster in running certain applications (no one with brains would care for a couple of seconds difference) because It doesn't have what I need, period. Microsd slot, great high megapixel camera, stereo speakers, radio of course durability. Things that Z5 only offers together at the moment.
I want my 1st smartphone to last for more than 5 years and durability alongside resistance to nature elements such as water and especially dust is a must. Let's see if iphone, or any other smartphone on that matter be able to last that long. I have Sony Ericsson W995 since 5,5 years ago, yes. 5,5 entire years and it's still fully functional, that's why I have faith in Sony phones.
Normal people doesn't have the money to buy high end phones every year, so durability goes 1st to us. Iphone and durability? Right good one, let me tell you another joke with a blonde woman who put her iphone into the microwave to charge it and it blow up, or the other with a guy who claimed iphone 6 is bulletproof and shot himself with the iphone in front to prove it's durability.. No, the bullet easily passed the phone and injured the smart guy.
People who buy iphones are geniuses yeah, now I'm convinced! :P
DenisXD, 22 Sep 2015I know you people think it's the best, when it's not. That's the problem with marketing.
It'... moreand what's going with the Z5 is nothing but sheer marketing , sony phones truly sucks even compared to samsung, LG and HTC
also .... most of these android phones just about numbers on papers with nothing in real life ..... anyway talking won't do you're just biased ... we'll see how good it'll be side to side with the 6S in performance !
AnonD-112143, 22 Sep 2015i own a Samsung S4 still running good while all Z1 to Z2 with my mates are failing .... with t... moreI know you people think it's the best, when it's not. That's the problem with marketing.
It's best? seriously? No microsd slot, no stereo speakers, no water resistance, outdated screen resolution, restricted as hell os, exactly the same design as the previous iphone (and you said z5 is like z2 lol) and on top of it, it doesn't even have radio. Seriously what on earth?
Now tell me again why it's the best device? Because Z5 is obviously more feature rich, more friendly the user. You do what you think it's best, but saying that iphone is the best when it's not (guaranteed) is a sign that you don't really research before spending your money.
Super beauty cool awesome waterproof phone... my next Bond phone.
110 % absolutely buy it.
After waiting some major improvement :
- Flapless usb
- New camera sensor & software
- Hi res audio
- Full HD (no need QHD)
