"Everything is top... more2k screens are useless, they drain battery and ruin performance and no difference is seen. That is the reason Sony stuck to 1080p in z5 and 4k in z5p( it will be in fhd when true 4k content is not viewed and upscales fhd content to near 4k which is highly advantageous.
People please go read CNet review...that one is golden :-D
I believe even most sony trollers here will get a WTF!? reaction after reading that one...
I cant believe what I am reading in some reviews over the net.
"Everything is top notch, but...that 4k screen is... just a con."
Z5... HD screen while competitors have 2k screen, duh?
But Z5 Premium... 4k screen? Useless, dont mind objectivly the best screen tech, 2k screens of competitors are just more reasonable
I expect next year reviews: "Samsung/LG bring 4k screen, wow, no cons, 2+ points to them"
Will we read same crap from arena?
NIK 88 , 20 Nov 2015Ok . Is it warrantee by Sony ? I will buy after new year. Sony gas record that drops price f... moreIt has been confirmed that only the dual sim version that will have the official warranty by Indonesian sonymobile. It's currently available for pre-order in dinomarket.com for 12.5M IDR. That means ofc the single sim version will be cheaper because it will have no official warranty.
However like what I've said before, both versions will usually have the same price. If there would be a price different, I'm guessing that the single sim variant would be more expensive because it supports Cat6 LTE whilst the dual sim version only supports Cat4 LTE.
jklondon, 20 Nov 2015Went for black, more classy. Chrome magnet for fingerprints and too flash. Black looks the most oldest. You can hardly differentiate between the black Z5P and Z3/Z2. I never knew there was a black Z5P. Most were talking about chrome and gold. Only recently I saw a black Z5P in CNET's review and they told that was the worst color.
So i want this phone very very bad but one thing that concerns me is the 4k screen replacement wont the screen itself be expensive to replace? and how is the battery life?
It's a great phone ! the only problem is the weight, it's a bit too heavy. I thought it would be lighter .. anyways i dont care I'll buy it ^_^
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2015Either gold or chrome. Forget about black.Went for black, more classy. Chrome magnet for fingerprints and too flash.
PeterB, 20 Nov 2015Finger print sensor is well executed as it's built in to the power/unlock button on the side -... moreNo it doesn't work like that. The pin is backup if the finger print fails. Works perfectly for me.
Good picture quality as well as sound also, but the phone is getting hot when net surfing or watching movie or playing game. As in heating condition, the battery drained very fast otherwise battery life is too good at standby mode.
Battery problem is not a big issue at all for me because 4k resolution consume more power than the battery is provided but the heating problem is making me too worry and damaging battery life also very fast.
If have any suggestion for overcome the above problem, please guide as soon as possible.
Finger print sensor is well executed as it's built in to the power/unlock button on the side - but it's rendered pointless by a silly design error.
Finger print sensor can only be used if you also use a number or password unlock. Cannot be used without the additional password system. So it can't be used as a quick, secure way to unlock the phone without also using a password.... so what's the point??
I'm so want the Gold version! I can see it being VERY popular in China!
[deleted post]Yes, Just checked Indonesian newspaper today.Kompas.
Z5P Dual available for preorder at IDR 12,5 million.
Available in some store such as EraPhone n TokoPDA. Sony store of course.
Zwx, 20 Nov 2015is it overheat like z3 and z3+? No overheat!! Since Z5 series coupled with two heatpipe.
SaKat, 19 Nov 2015I have to wonder which is better between the Z5 Premium and the M5. I wanted the Z5P but now I... moreIf you are budget oriented, go for xperia M5. Excelent camera and screen as good as Z5 ones. M5 has 21MP with fast focus of 0.03 second that is same. But Z5 has stereo speaker and 23MP camera. But if you want fantastic screen, go for Z5P.
MH-0, 20 Nov 2015what is the best color ???Either gold or chrome. Forget about black.
