I heard from JerryRigEverything about Sony Xperia Z5 premium it has 2 version just like Samsung on their Galaxy S7 and S8, US & Global version, I dont know code version for these 2 version, but What I want to tell you about, There is No Fingerprint scanner on side right on the Power/Lock screen button for US version... suprisingly enough.
Global version has all content on this specifications, but the problem is on US version. that's all I wanted to tell
I currently own this phone and although i could spend all day boasting about it quite frankly i wont.
This phone still has the same issue as the previous Xperia Z range, the phone bends.
My phone was less than 3 months old when i noticed the phone looked a little mis-shapen, so i decided to log a call with Sony and as the phone was expensive enough as it is i never purchased insurance, only to be told that unless i wanted to pay £300+ to get it fixed then there was nothing they could do... and even then there was no guarantee that they could fix it. I kept being passed on from manager to manager as my argument was it should be covered in the warranty only to be told that the warranty only covers manufacturing defects to which my response was surely it is, if i cannot even stick the phone ion my pocket without it bending, but no matter how hard i tried pressing my argument i was never going to get anywhere and their support team was useless, and in the end i ended up getting frustrated with their lack of help or support I just cut them off.
Overall it is a very strong and stable phone with very great performance just make sure if you're planning to buy it buy a strong case to prevent it from bending, and dont stick it in your jeans pocket.
Overall: 8/10 (looses two marks for the build quality and the fact it bent)
cillah, 23 May 2017is it advisable to buy this phone?If u are the kind of person who like to watch videos get this because of the stunning 4k display. I would recommend u to get this phone or if u want more performance too then u should wait for XZ Premium
AnonD-671518, 23 May 2017Dude Snapdragon 810 is not processor its a chipsetWhen u don't even know that there is another saying of it and u spoke out urself. Good job. Seen a lot of these people
AnonD-671518, 23 May 2017Dude Snapdragon 810 is not processor its a chipsetLol dude it can be called processor or chipset. Go Google and type Snapdragon 810, the first result will show Snapdragon 810 Mobile Processor. Lol ur wrong
AnonD-670458, 20 May 2017does anyone one knows when Sony will launch full screen models like s9 or s8?But why would you want it, though? Edge-to-edge displays such as the Galaxy S8(+) have been proven TERRIBLE for the device's durability. Knock it on the side of a Starbucks tabled and you'll end up with spiderwebs on the display! https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/samsung-galaxy-s8-repair-screen-cracking-prone-latest-news-smartphone-testing-review-a7700886.html
AnonD-662392, 13 May 2017I thought the battery is 3430 why it can only support 66 hours of endurance rating..Come on, dude. Snapdragon 810 is a bad processor. The chip throttles a lot and hence causes battery life to be shorter than usual.
