Xperia Z5 First Look

Published

If understated elegance is what Sony was going for then they hit the nail on the head with the Xperia Z5. A unibody design with unobtrusive ports and a frosted glass finish that deflects smudges – the Xperia Z5, all three of its variants – is a sight for sore eyes.

But of course there’s more to the smartphone than its looks. The Z5, Z5 Compact, and the Z5 Premium, like other Xperia flagships, are all waterproof. They also all have 23 megapixel cameras equipped with what Sony claims to be the fastest autofocus on a smartphone camera.

The solid design also didn’t stop Sony from including a microSD card slot – something Samsung opted to forego when it decided to go the unibody route in its flagship devices this year.

The Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact are nearly the exact same phone. Apart from the obvious size difference (Z5 sports a 5.2-inch display while the Z5 compact has a 4.6-inch one), the only other thing the two don’t have in common is the RAM (Z5 – 3GB, Z5 Compact – 2GB and battery (Z5 – 2,900 mAH, Z5 Compact – 2,700 mAh).

The Z5 Premium sets itself apart by having the distinction of being the world’s first 4K smartphone. And while your naked eyes likely won’t be able to tell the difference between Full HD and 4K, it’s still a nice feature to boast about. Oh and the Z5 Premium and Z5 will also come in dual-sim variants. Neat.
