If you see the ps4 specs u will find that its specs are top notch and no console has any better better and expensive specs than ps4. sony is ready to even sell it for a lower price and take a loss for a while cause they know that they can recover the money from there psn accounts and the high games prices
As there are no games and there is no need for any psn accounts esp for Z5p and it uses a comman OS platform called android they do not have any way to recover the money as a result sony is being extra smart and fooling ppl with a uncooked and not at all premium z5p smartphone at a very expensive price .
I bet if android wud not have been there and if sony wud have got its own OS and some type of subcription wud have been needed to use there smartphone then no other OEM's wud have been able to touch there overall quality of the smartphone sony wud have offered.Then they wud have been even ready to sell that high end smartphone for a loss .cause they know how to recover the money.
But they sud know that they cannot fool everybody with this kind of game .and avoiding to offer quality and top notch specs.just cause they cannot recover there money later..
They sud know that if they wud offer best specs available in the market then even if they keep the prices high for there smartphones ppl wud still buy them..No matter what.

SONY XperiaÂ™ Z5 Premium is the best smartphone ever, It has a 4K display which is impossible for other manufacturers to even think about. All other manufacturers are just crap against SONY. Haters gonna hate because they are cheap fellas who can't afford this amazing smartphone. SONY you are the best. I am a proud SONY user too. I've used HTC, Apple, Samsung, etc but nothing like a SONY.

kimhong, 25 Dec 2015Between Sony xperia Z5 and Z5 Premium , which one is better ? Premium
Joe Philippines, 28 Dec 2015i'm so disappointed with the screen of Xperia Z5 Premium. . what happen to you Sony? S6 Edge&... moreBecause Samsung is using AMOLED screen tehnology so it has more saturated colors and look better. But sony uses more realistic colors and it might not look that great
I dont like z5 or z5c but i would love to have an opportunity to use z5 premium. But fortunately in my country z5 premium isnt selling. ;(

However another issue, Just as, if not more important is memory speed. The Emmc used by most oems (including Sony) is amongst the slowest solution on the market.
This issue will become more visible as higher than 1080p content (and the hugely increased file size associated with such content) becomes more prevalent. Also, as device encryption is being made mandatory in devices using android 6.0, and given android oems (Samsung aside) failure to address the speed bottleneck by relying on software decryption, this issue may again become more apparent.
As far as I am aware, Sony along with most other Android manufacturers are going to continue using the Emmc solution. So this may become more of an issue in 2016, yes Emmc 5.1 is faster but it is still miles behind the UFS used by Samsung and the PCIe & NMVe used by Apple in the 6S. The guys over at Anandtech make several references to the importance of memory speed in their recent reviews of the IPhone 6S, Nexus 6P & 5X.
