I used a G4 recently that I bought for panoramas and raw stills.
It would have been nice to be able to use it to read these pages, but even with a 2560x1440 screen, every page was upwards of 25 Mb.
That is the sole purpose of hi-res screens on mobiles: to rack up massive data use revenue looking at what exactly? Ads?
Nobody NEEDS more than what you get on the back of aDSLR- which is still nowhere near HD at any price (a D810 costs thousands and uses 640x480 pixels on a 3 inch screen.
You cannot practically use a phone on the internet with a hi-res screen because unless you use wifi or can afford an unlimited data allowance it will bankrupt you.
Sony in uprezzing attempt to manage the problem but on an old nokia I have as good a camera and can surf for months on a gig of data.
Whats needed is a way to surf at much lower resolutions and play games at lower resolutions so that you stay solvent else surfing ads will cost you more than you might spend. At 25mb/page a gigabite ofdata would be consumed in visiting only 40 web pages- easily done in an hour.

Why are u getting personal and rude here? all my comments are very objective and are not fanboy based, if i had to be a sammy or note5 fanboy i wud have never mentioned that Lg G4 & LG V10 have better low light photography and videos shooting than Note5.
Trust me if G4 and V10 wud have been more premium like Note5 and Z5P I wud have bought anyone of them for sure.
I am not saying that Note5 is perfect , But its the most balanced smartphone out there in terms of specs and price to value ratio in the market rightnow .
Z5 has the best camera in a smartphone. Period. Don't listen to trolls like parag and the legendary troll avan Dr.

"Added by Com... moreYour comments make no sense whatsoever and you are purely trolling. I've given you links which prove Z5's camera prowess and the reliability of Z5's image stabilisation. The video which I showed you was a not a 4K video, you thought it was a 4K video which again proves you don't know what you're telling. And you DID see how good SteadyShot is and its better than OIS. And Z5 take slow shots? You must be nuts. Z5 has the fastest autofocus in a phone. If you were talking about the camera app launching delay, that has been fixed in the new camera updates. (There were 2, 1st one improved camera power and launching time, the 2nd latest one updated the whole camera app and interface.)
Now it's up to you continue being a troll, or accept the truth.

do sony experia z5 premium have
Triluminos display for mobile
X-Reality for mobile
Dynamic Contrast Enhancer
Seriously, these fanboy negative "opinions" about z5 camera are so shallow and biased, it is fun to read their nonsense over and over
"One user said in comments..." ?!?!
"Any chinese can take decent photos in daylight, its the lowlight that only counts...", oh the hypocrisy.
" OIS is faster at focusing and better stabilization..", are you freakin kidding me?
"Even dxomark stated...", take what you like from wording and put it out of context...
Z5 is at this moment best camera in a phone, exellent in lowlight, perfect in daylight, unmatcahble for video recording.
deal with it and continue living....
As a surplus it also has waterproofing, an SD card expandability, stereo speakers, and amazing SD810 performance without overheating issues....
So take your ego issues to note5 or whatever dedicted threads, you are boring us

"Added by Com... morePlease do not spread nonsense by wrongly saying"really the Z5 is far from being the best camera". Do you want to see the difference between magnificent Z5p camera and Samsung 6s or iphone 6? Just print a 10 meter in 10 meter photo taken by each, then you'll see which one dominates. Do you want to see the difference between filming quality of the three? Just film a video by each and play them in Ultra Full HD LEDs (lucky for you that there's no 4k LEDs released yet, or you'd be more ashamed of your nonsense).

Do you really want me to post a link to prove you that? Lol
Most Ppl here are just blind fanboys.
Sony cud have done much better but they always try to cut down on the imp specs Like OIS, bigger apreture, powerful flash .
If they wud have left that 4k thing and given me the above things i wud have bought Z5P for sure instead of Note5.inspite of all of its short comings.like no 64gb base model etc

Z5 camera is very poor.
I agree with the other comments, really the Z5 is far from being the best camera.
1. It has a lot of noise even in daylight. Your pictures will look more like watercolour paintings than real life pictures.
2. Depth of field on steroids. Extreme cases of blurry out of focus areas on landscapes. Only half of your picture will be usable.
3. Auto focus is fast but not reliable. Low detail pictures considering MP count.
4. Slow at taking shots.
These are all points I verify myself as I handle a lot of phones at work. Then there are the other problems such as poor low light and overheating that I didn't verify but I see a lot of other comments about it.
Overall the camera on the iphone 6s is far better and Samsung Edge is also better.
Then the Nokia 808/1020 camera, although its very slow, is in a league of its own. You cant even compare compare it to this toy as the previous comment shows on his example link.
If the Z5 wins just because it can take nice 4K video then that's wrong. It should also be able to take excellent photos to win.
I was excited for this phone but I wont buy it now after tying it."
Now its up to you to be honest or to be a fanboy!

And wider aperture doesn't always result in better low light performance. One of the greatest strengths of the Z5's camera is low light performance. My Z1 has the same aperture as Z5, but low light performance can't stand a chance against the Z5.
And the Z5's image stabilisation is much better than S6/Note5, as shown in the link I posted first. Dxomark states the same too. Plus, Z5 has ultrafast Autofocus, which helps in stabilisation.
Anonymous, 27 Oct 2015Totally agree, and I'm in with SONY. Seriously Sony Support is best. Because am an example for this. I have bought M5 dual, it is having auto power of issues. I gave at service center issue not resolved. Then I dropped a mail to Sony Customer support. They responded immediately and allowed me to exchange or upgrade the phone. They did not troubled me at all. Only problem is service center far away from my location ;).
Sony Customer care people always tried to help me out. Thanks Sony :)
sovath, 27 Nov 2015Anyone know how long the batter will last? normal usage phone call and internet? Thank you in... moreI'm using the chrome z5p for the last 2 weeks. For a moderate use, i used to have half of the battery by my bed time. And my moderate usage defines an one hour call, a max of one hour browsing and an one hour gaming. Abd regular whatsapp abd few snaps. I always keep my phone in stamina mode and really happy how this phone lasts. But screen on time is not so great especially if you play high graphic games or 4k video recording. Still this phone is best in business compared to other flagships. Fingers crossed on marshmallow update.
