Sony Xperia Z5 Premium Review
2014 and the most part of 2015 were all about 4K technology. Unfortunately this technology was not able to get to the smartphone world. However, thanks to Sony, we have the first ever 4K smartphone on the market today. The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium is the first smartphone to boast a 4K display and it also has some more features to boast about. Nevertheless, as you will realize, Sony kind of missed a few pointers in a bid to stay classy. But in all respect, the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium is as stunning beauty that has a lot to offer for the right market.
It’s been a rough road for Sony over the past few years especially in matters concerning smartphone production. So rough that they even wanted to do away with the smartphone business altogether. However, if they had to leave the market, then they had to leave us with an excellent product or a few of those. This inspired the Sony Xperia Z5 which comes with three different versions, the compact, premium and the original Z5. Each of these smarphones comes with its own uniqueness but the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium is the one that breaks a few records.
Surprisingly, it’s the biggest of them all with a 6.4 inch mammoth display that can’t be compared to the 5.5 inch of the Z5 or the measly 5.2 inches of the Sony Xperia Z5 compact. Of course you will love some features of the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium and might not like others, so let’s get to the liking part first.
The display of course is where Sony puts their money. It’s an incredible improvement and a good challenge for the big boys in the smartphone industry. Moreover, it’s even better for the consumer because it’s not only good looking but it will also set standards for future smartphones. What’s even better is that the pricing will be well considered when every manufacturers decide to go 4K. If you have come across one of the flagship smartphones with the 2K technology, then expect even better from 4K although not much of a difference.
Of course, we like the fingerprint sensor that was first introduced to us by the Samsung Galaxy S5. What’s interesting is that it works perfectly and it’s a good thing seeing that even Apple and Samsung had a bit of a struggle when they were trying out the fingerprint sensors on their phones. Of course the waterproof body and the PS4 remote play won’t go unnoticed although they are in other Sony phones, this was not expected given the size of the phone. Sony also promises the best in terms of camera performance and with a company that produces professional photography equipment, we can expect something good. Well, and the gaming enthusiasts will enjoy playing their PS4 on a 4K display and this is just enough reason to go the Sony way if you are an enthusiast gamer.
Some of the disappointments that come with the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium include, a poor UI, poor overall design and poor battery life.
