But a high performance, design, quality and new tech can justify a higher price. This phone is packed with new stuff indeed, and some stuff that works better than on other phones, i.e. the fingerprint sensor on the side. I can believe this phone is worth this pricetag more than an iPhone or a Note 5/6 Edge plus for example, cause those phones really are overpriced for what you get. Personally I wouldn't pay such an amount of money for "just" a smartphone while I can get same specs for much less money, but many people will. The main reason for Sony to put the price that high is probably the 4K display, I guess.
AnonD-71348, 07 Sep 2015Oh flip! Look at that Pixel Density(PPI). Hectic. I'm a big Sony fan. But I think its time for... moreI totally agree no way the 810 is good enough to power a phone of That caliber
Sony phones are built to last indeed, and they are premium devices no doubt about it that camera sensory in the Z5 uses (exclusive to sony only they said) is best in class I just wonder though what that 4k display will do long term to the GPU, it's hard to believe the phone wont get extremely hot
Oh flip! Look at that Pixel Density(PPI). Hectic. I'm a big Sony fan. But I think its time for better 8-core cpu's. Bigger storage
The display is amazing but in benchmarks the note 5 is going to crush the 810 SOC along with the 4 gb ram I have the note 5 running on a launcher disabled most of the touch wiz interface coming from a G4 and running the root booster app (which you don't have to have a rooted phone to use) I hit 60,000 plus on antutu going against an unDer clocked 810 there is no comparison
Android user, 07 Sep 2015Samsung has a better software than any other android devices apart from very gorgeous display.... moreI agree, the RAM mismanagement, the silly app icons, the amount of bloatware, god its so good! Samsung all the way!

If the price tag is US$950 for this device, then someone will buy it for blind allegiance and loyalty to the brand. Sony products are all overpriced. The only things that i will buy from Sony are their TV and stereo headset. Xperia? Nah.
Hog Rider, 06 Sep 2015!!!! i was about to mention that topic! :/ still 3gb!!! really sucks! Doesn't make a difference with performance. Z5 Premium runs stock android, which takes less RAM, unlike Samsung's lagwiz, which takes in a lot of RAM.
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2015Sony !! Are you mad ?? still 3GB RAM for 4K resolution screen !!!!??!! atleast it needs ... moreAnd tell me what system RAM has to do with the display? Do you have sense? RAM doesn't affect the display. What pushes all the pixels of the display is the GPU.
The X-Peria is the best phone ever I do not have one so you may send me one
