Sony Xperia Z5 Review – Best Battery, Specs an Features

Sony Xperia Z5 Review

Despite declarations and low sales from last year, Sony insists to bring to the market several models of top smartphones. Half a year after the disclosure of Z3+/Z4, the company launched a new range of products under the name of Z5, with three price categories and sizes. We present Sony Xperia Z5 normal, nether "compact" or "premium", the new flagship of the company, which comes with specifications comparable with those of competing products and with quite a few notable differences compared to previous models. Let this be the smartphone that brings the mobile division of the Japanese company back on track.

Construction, design and ergonomics

Xperia Z5 doesn't come from patterns that have established Z-series versions of the past. We still have to do with a smartphone with minimalist design, made of glass and metal, which does not want to go out too much. If there were no Sony logo on it, perhaps we could not figure out who produced it at first, but this feeling disappears as soon as you touch it. Metal frame and high quality glass present on both the front and back, provides categorizing the products 'premium' and completes the image specifications.

On the front we find little items. Microphone and stereo speakers are positioned at the edges of the device, where slots are cut in the thin glass that protects the screen. Left front camera is found in the company logo, and into the top corner there is a multicolor LED for notifications. The display is surrounded by a plastic frame, installed to protect the glass in an impact and fine scratches due to positioning on the table, but adds new places where dust can gather: a very small space between components.

The phone is surrounded by a metal frame that is protected by plastic corners. On the frame are found several important elements such as jack headphone at the top, the SIM card and microSD card in left, Power buttons, the volume and camera button on the right and a micro USB socket in the bottom. Positioning is very good: Power button is located near the middle of the device, the volume buttons under it, and below the two-stage camera button.

Screen

Unlike the competition, Sony has chosen to continue to use a display with Full HD resolution. This seems to be a panel similar to that used last year on Xperia Z3, is still using IPS technology. Screen size is 5.2" recommend it as a phone nor too small nor too big, usable with one hand even with minimal effort. We are dealing with a well calibrated panel with a brightness above average, even disturbing at maximum level in most situations. The automatic setting depending on ambient light often works properly, the screen is usable both in total darkness and in sun with ease. Full HD resolution is not necessarily a disadvantage, even if competing models already use QHD panel. Given the size of the display, this is enough, and the low power consumption is welcome.

Performance

Given the technical specifications Xperia Z5 is on full performance. Most scores gained at benchmarks aligns with other smartphones with similar hardware. Snapdragon 810 processor seems to be newer generation that does not heat up so much, performance and overall user experience is flawless. Switching from one application to another is almost instant, and the 3GB of RAM seem to be enough to keep several applications open simultaneously.

Sony Xperia Z5 Review 2

Specifications

Screen: 5.2", IPS 1920x1080pixels

Operating System: Android 5.1.1 Lollipop

Chipset: Qualcomm Snapdragon 810

Processor: 2.0GHz Octa-core

RAM: 3GB

Autonomy

Xperia Z devices of the family have always been top in battery chapter. Xperia Z5 does not disappoint, keeping the tradition of use for two days under normal use. With a 4G connection, selective WiFi and normal use throughout the day on social networks, browsing and several calls a day, Xperia Z5 can easily exceed 30 hours of use (about two full days of work). Of course, this performance can be overcome using economic mode of the phone, closing unneeded processes and some features such as the Internet.

    Nice battery life compared to an Iphone!

  53. I feel like this is a phone I've seen a thousand times before, another sculpting of the original Xperia Z from years ago. And yet, despite Sony once again refusing to try something different with its flagship range of smartphones, there's something impressive about this handset.

    That's not to say that things are rosy at Sony. The company has been pushing its brand in the smartphone space for years with limited success - it's needed a big hit for a while, and yet it's just spend time refining the same formula every six months or so.

    That means that while the Xperia Z5 offers some genuinely innovative features, it's going to be hard to sell those to the disinterested consumer who's more wowed by the glass Galaxy S6 or an iPhone with a bigger screen.
