The Xperia Z5 Premium's UHD screen broke my heart

 

4K, everywhere, and not a thing to watch.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium review: This high-resolution flagship phone costs far too much

 

Don't be bewitched by the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium's 4K screen -- this phone comes at too high a price for what you get.

Sony's Xperia Z5 Premium has a gorgeous, pin-sharp screen, it's powerful, packs a solid camera and won't die when you spill your drink on it.

Its 4K display results in a sky-high price, but the extra resolution adds nothing to the overall experience. Sony's familiar design is beginning to look rather tired.

Don't be tempted by the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium's attention-grabbing 4K screen. You can spend less money on a better all-round flagship phone.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium Smartphone Review

 

Mirror, mirror in my hand. Sony's new Xperia Z5 Premium flagship not only shines with high-performance technology and an exceptionally high-resolution ultra HD panel, its back can double as a mirror. Our report elucidates how well the Premium...

A Review of the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium smartphone with 4K display

 

After the release of the slightly disappointing Xperia Z3+, Sony has really pulled out all the stops with its latest and greatest flagship phone, and taken some parts of it to new heights that no other phone at all yet matches. We are of course talking...

Massively powerful Snapdragon 810 processor ; Great 3GB RAM ; Incredible 23 megapixel camera ; 4K display ; Surprisingly long battery life ; Great OS and power saver features ; Good connectivity

Boxy design ; Mirror-polished back looks a bit gaudy ; Dimmer than expected display graphics ; expensive

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium Review

 

Let it be known that 2015 is the year when we saw the first-ever commercially available smartphone with a 4K display. That's a 2160 x 3840-pixel resolution crammed in a 5.5-inch screen. Of course, as you probably know, the smartphone in question...

Bright display, easy to read under sunlight ; Dust- and water-resistant (IP68) ; Outstanding battery life

Camera could be better ; The user interface needs a refresh ; Weak speakers that lack in depth ; Bulky

Thus far, we strayed away from discussing whether or not 4K on a smartphone's display is a good idea, and for a reason. It all boils down to two arguments – on one side, one can say that it's overkill, the improvement in details is barely noticeable,...

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium 4K Smartphone Review

 

Sure, 4K sound amazing on a smartphone, but how does Sony's Xperia Z5 Premium perform in real life? Not so great. Read on to find out why.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium review

 

Sony's making a lot of noise about the Xperia Z5 Premium, not least because it's the first smartphone in the world to hit the market with an eye-popping 4K display. But does the world first deserve your attention or is it just hype? This is our full...

Pretty good looking ; Decent camera ; Great fingerprint scanner

Complete lack of 4K content made available by Sony ; Glossy fingerprint magnet ; Far too expensive for what you actually get over the other Z5 phones

Anyone hoping for a real wow factor with this phone based on the specs or the marketing hype will be sadly disappointed. While the Z5 Premium isn't a bad phone by any stretch, it simply doesn't live up to that hype or the pretty steep retail price....

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium Review: 4K Overkill?

 

The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium sports similar specs as the other phones in the Z5 line, but it has one spec that sets it aside from every other smartphone on the market: a 4K display.

Great design and finish ; Above average battery life ; Outstanding chipset ; Good camera ; 4k display impressive in some instances

4k display limited to multimedia ; It’s a fingerprint magnet ; Some display colors off by default ; Expensive

The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium’s biggest draw is the 4K display, which separates it from every other phone on the market. Otherwise, specs are very similar to the Xperia Z5, and they are solid.
