This would have been the Ultimate Hyper phone to date if they had just put in the SnapDragon 820, USB-C with USB 3.1, 4GB DDR4 RAM, Android 6.0 Marshmellow, DTS's Headphone:X & a Removable battery or 4500mAh battery. They could achieve this. These brand name smartphone makers need to put the best components in their phones, especially if, 1. They aren't making a significant style change or 2. They want to have the best components out their & people will pay, its like being the Koenigsegg One:1 or Pagani Huayra or Lykan Hypersport or even the Lada Raven of Smartphones. I just think these guys are just cheap & don't wanna give us the best. That is why I won't buy an iPhone because they keep stringing us along & won't put the best components at the time in their phones & Apple can afford to do it, they just make us believe the the best isn't necessary, well, in my book, when it comes to technology, I think the best is necessary because most of the time it makes our lives easier & more convenient & efficient & I think Apple half asses their hardware & thats why they have Ginormous profits.
Dave, 04 Sep 2015My wishlist for the Xperia Z6:
Same as the Xperia Z5 Premium (e.g. screen size, 4K screen, ... morethere is no need for 4 gb ram
sony will beat all with just 3 gb ram
and the android version is perfect
5 mp.kamera it is also perfect instead of 8mp poor camera of samsung...
AnonD-437025, 05 Sep 2015I am not worrying about ots battery but how will ot perform. Come on a qs810 woth 3 gb of ram.... moremy dear a.sony can perform with only 3 gb ram better than a.samsung with 5 gb ram
we alla.know that samsung is made to have lags.
and for the battery 3430 mha it is enough believe me..
Sony need to make a mini version using 4k display. I want a 4.3inch screen. It will increase the ppi level up to 1025ppi. That would be super awesome for viewing pleasure. We certainly don't need it but for VR sake I would.
IPS-Neo is better than Super Amoled. This video proved it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLxZ_-abjPk.

Now Samsung and LG will start releasing 4K. Meanwhile Apple will stick with 720p, 1GB RAM, and a ugly 2012 design with thick bezels.
Anonymous, 04 Sep 2015did you expect Bond to use girlish designed phones like samsung and lg??? come on... Bond can use Z5 mirror on the back for make up
dd, 04 Sep 2015Sony can match it because there ips panels are very energy efficient. I think it will have abo... moreI am not worrying about ots battery but how will ot perform. Come on a qs810 woth 3 gb of ram. Why didn't sony made it a 4gb ram. Ips and lcd displays are well known for accuracy and power efficiency but many manufacturers over saturate the screen. I prefer AMOLED screens. But this phone has the best screen in todays market. My only worries are the cpu ,ram, and battery of this phone
This specification sheet is lacking some important information.

Shafiq Mobile Lover, 04 Sep 2015Hello All Mobile Fans Sony xperia Z 5 premium is more better than sony ever made ... moredid you expect Bond to use girlish designed phones like samsung and lg??? come on...
'premium' because it was made for Bond.. MAYBE next year there will be no more premium model, and they won't continue using 4K display.
1-first smartphone with water and dust proof/resistant
2-first smartphone got a 2 glass on front and back
3-first smartwatch got a nfc....
4-first smartphone got a nfc
5-first smartphone got a flash on front
6-first smartphone capture a video 4k
7- and first smartphone with a 4k screen wow..
8-first camera got a optical zoom...... That's a huge jump from all the phone
And overheating has been fixed :)
After so many years sony has finally created a phone that I actually want to buy . Absolutely brilliant. At almost 150 grams its on the heavier side . But nothing is perfect in this world.
Bob, 04 Sep 20151) there is something call lens-shift image stabilizers on the z5 (It uses the gyro sensor and... more1)Then there sud b no OEM which sud incoroprate the OIS .dude OIS is hardware feature which is ment to get the image stable even with shaky hands.
2) Its clearly visible that z5 premium has the same pony flashlight i am not expecting a xenon flash light but i think i can atleast expect the powerful duel tone flash which i was expecting from a long time.
3) The bezels are seriously too thick i can still forgive that as it has a very premium design.but still sony cud have done a better job with that as its been too long since the xperia Z.
4) Sd810 is a flagship grade SOC i.e sony had no other option at the moment however as theis phone is water and dust.. tight it will overheat more while running a resource hungry app or using the phone for a long time even if its underclocked. So that worries me
My wishlist for the Xperia Z6:
Same as the Xperia Z5 Premium (e.g. screen size, 4K screen, battery capacity, design), but with these changes:
1) Snapdragon 820
2) 4 Gb of RAM
4) Android 6.0
5) 8 MP front camera
6) Wireless charging
They still keep the 3GB RAM since the Z2 era eh?
Releasing a 4K in a phone, in a 5.5" screen is quite extreme, but hey, so does 2K. Its great that Sony really showing that they are a contender in the smartphone business, and the camera improvements looks quite promising. The SD810 is bearable, even in 4K but the thing that worries me is actually the bigger memory space it'll took for the 4K stuff, even with SD card.
Overall, I think this is a bold move from Sony, and im hooked. What they really need is A BETTER MARKETING TEAM. Sony have a gladiator-class phones since the Z era, but the terrible marketing really bring the company down. Better marketing, better sales.
