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.
AnonD-398052, 04 Sep 2015Come on SONY make a 4GB RAM model with SD820............... How can Sony put a processor that hasn't been released?
Shafiq Mobile Lover, 04 Sep 2015Hello All Mobile Fans
Sony xperia Z 5 premium is more better than sony ever made ... morego and get yourself a samsung,sir.
you are listing the note and edge plus features.
AnonD-398052, 04 Sep 2015Come on SONY make a 4GB RAM model with SD820............... next year or ifa 2016
I see a lot of funny ppl here.... when sony used FHD till z4/z3+, they said just FHD?
Now sony used 4K, they sounded like was that necessary??
LG, Samsung and other brands are so obsessed with 2K and SONY just showed what they can do better. SONY wouldnt released 4K with 3430mAh if the device couldnt handle.
Knowing abt Sony power management of its devices, i think it will be just fine with 4K.
mas39, 04 Sep 2015C5 Ultra is not a successor for the Z Ultra, maybe you don't want a large phone but there are ... moreMaybe not as success as you expect. The thing is, when Xperia z ultra fist debut about 2-3 years ago, this device is heavily criticized because of that 6.4 inch screen. It's the largest smartphone ever made. Even bigger than the earlier SG Mega 6.3. The z ultra series and both people missed for an upgrade and hate for an future upgrade. Btw, I used Xperia Z ultra and I definitely want an upgrade for the Z Ultra line.
AnonD-437025, 04 Sep 2015Come on sony. A 4k display with 806ppi on a QUALCOMM SNAPDRAGON 810! BIG FAILURE. I will stick... moreSony can match it because there ips panels are very energy efficient. I think it will have about 70h endurance rating same as s6.if you so much care about battery life why not buy Z5 COMPACT. Stop telling useless remarks .
After all sony made 3 versions of the same device.
Aaron, 03 Sep 2015in this world still nobody saw 4k movies.... think again...@Aaron, now you should think again. In 2014, when Fifa world cup in Brazil, Sony began to use 4K technology to steam the match. And Nowadays, many video even on YouTube will be available in 4K resolution. Sony's 4K technology on smartphone is just the beginning. Later on, many companies try to enter 4K screen market that Sony already enter the market earlier.
AnonD-411807, 02 Sep 2015do u think 3430 is enough for 4K display??? Firstly, it depends on how you use it. Secondly, I think it's enough for 4K screen. Sony is one of the company which also concern about power management. With standard or even lesser MAh battery, the phone can last longer than you expect. Maybe not up to 2 days like Sony promises to us, nevertheless, the battery could stand longer. I use Xperia Z ultra with 3050 MAh battery and it stays for long time. Btw, Stamina mode are great power management offered by the company.
AnonD-80082, 04 Sep 2015Again...To all the Samsung, Apple and crap fanboys, I'll sum it up for you once for all. -... moreLol... Your comment makes me laugh. Anyway, I totally agree with your opinion about those fanboy crap.
I don't even wanna know the price tag in the U.S. for this thing. I'm gonna guess $850 minimum, maybe higher... I'm happy to see they're throwing at least a 3450 mAh battery in there, still think it should be closer to 4000 to combat that power hogging 4K display. You can't tell me for a display of that intensity in it's infancy of being in a phone that it won't eat through a battery like an untamed beast.
