AnonD-80082, 03 Sep 2015To all the Samsung, Apple and crap fanboys, I'll sum it up for you once for all.
- There i... moreI want you to tell something.
1. Samsung QHD note 5 display is incomparable.I think you haven't seen the display.
2.The snapdragon 810 octa sucks much power than the 14 nm Exynos 7.
3.The iPhone quality and performance can beat both the octas with its dual core.
4.Who needs a sony logo when you have an apple one.
Had this for a week now, the screen is amazing, I have a 4K video I downloaded form YouTube and I goo around here just showing it to people to see their reaction...A curse word usually comes up.. like "%^&&* amazing" Battery life is good it gives me around 36 hours of normal use. And when I abuse it with 4K stuff and heavy 3d gaming it gives me a full day.
The Camera is superb and with this screen you get crisp and super define images. The build quality is truly premium, the metal body feels expensive and the look is quite eye catching... the size is a little big if you wear tight fitting jeans but the unit is not bulky it's just large but not too much that you could not place it in your front pocket.
One bad thing though...your Girlfriend/Wife will be constantly asking to borrow the phone to fix her makeup on the back panel mirror :)
Anonymous, 13 Nov 2015got my x5 also. something tat i dont know is i dont see lte available, like my x3, jus show 4g... moreIt's because England and few other European countries call their lte 4g, I had that with my previous global Xperia, you have the lte speed so no worries. If a USA version of software becomes available in feature you can flash your phone to get your lte but I wouldn't even bother with it.
Going to get one in this Christmas... Xperia Z5 Premium Dual. Thats the plan. Ohhohhh... I used Sony Ericssion K810i, Xperia X2, Xperia Neo (Still working perfectly in USA bought in India), Xperia S (Working perfectly), Xperia Z1 ( Working perfectly) and Xperia Z3 (In hand, working perfectly).... Looking for Z5 Premium Dual. . . Let's rock soon..... :)
Kerry, 13 Nov 2015Wtf? You really don't know what is the meaning of 4K? 1080 is only 1K(Full HD). But 4K is better!2160 x 3840 pixels this is 4 k resulation
Which one is Better ?
Nexus 6P or Sony Xperia Z5 Premium ?
I wanna upgrade from Iphone 5
got my x5 also. something tat i dont know is i dont see lte available, like my x3, jus show 4g provided only. something tat might be available after some update maybe, if someone could explain my ignorance thankyou
Just received the phone today, I'm very impressed and highly recommend it to anyone who's looking for a high end device. My phones I went through in past two years are iPhone, LG flex, HTC and then Xperia z3, jumped on galaxy note edge, then went back to Xperia and most likely I'll stick with Sony, I'm actually glad they stick with similar design as it's very elegant and has that premium feel to it, just like iPhone did when they came out with 4, since 4s apple been slipping behind more and more, just my 2Â€

Kenboi, 11 Nov 2015Are the 4k photos clear and sharp?if you seen old pics in this mobile...
than also...its look clear..sharp...and new....
I reckon the only improvements this phone (or its successor) needs are optical image stabilization, a dual tone flash, and a bump up to the Snapdragon 820 to boost performance.
The lack of these features aren't a deal breaker though, as it's still a brilliant piece of tech.
Kenboi, 11 Nov 2015Are the 4k photos clear and sharp?You need to know what is 4K first, then you dont need that question...
from xperiablog.net-latest....As most content is displayed in FHD 1080p ,
Sony uses an automatic upscaling feature so that it can be enjoyed using the full 4K display. The question then becomes: If most of the content I view will be FHD, what benefit will I see from the 4K display? Well to help answer that question, ePrice decided to test the Xperia Z5 Premium against the Apple iPhone 6s Plus.
They took some lower resolution content and then compared the upscaled output on the 4K display of the Xperia Z5 Premium against the FHD display of the iPhone 6s Plus. We have included some of the comparison below (click the source link for the full suite of images), but we think the results speak for themselves.
The comparisons shown below show a 720p video, News app video and a 2MP photo compared on both devices. A crop is included to the right of each image to give a sense of difference between both devices. Even without clicking on the images below, you should be able to tell the difference quite clearly. Sony appears to do a great job with its upscaling processing to give a more defined picture on the Xperia Z5 Premium. It shows that even with low-resolution standard definition content, the Xperia Z5 Premium should do a sterling job of making it look good.
AnonD-464744, 11 Nov 2015Also keen to hear real-life reviews esp. on battery. Holding back on a 6P as this might be the... moregot my z5 premium... display is as expected mind blowing...sony was not lying when they told z5 p will upscale full hd to 4k standard...it really upscales it...and it looks freakingly awesome. then battery life will again wow use..4 hours browsing with 26% battery!u may not believe me,but its the truth...i am really really really happy i traded my iphone 5s for this.
Ed, 10 Nov 2015So, anybody got it yet? Really curious about Z5 premium especially the battery Also keen to hear real-life reviews esp. on battery. Holding back on a 6P as this might be the phone to go for.
Just got the Z5 Premium. It lasts easily for 36 hours. If u keep the screen open a lot if will use about 12% per hour with adaptive brightness set to ON and STAMINA mode turned ON. For example, 10 hours operation with 2 hours screen time uses around 35% of the battery (did not use heavy duty graphics or games) which is quite good for normal business and recreational use. I did not test the video streaming power consumption yet though You can get better power longevity if you turn OFF Adaptive brightness.
