The arrival of the Xperia Z5 may do little to alter the mobile phone scenario since it is only an incremental increase over the previous generation.
Aside from aspects like the camera and design, there is not much of a change on the Xperia Z5. This, however, is not the case with the Xperia Z5 Premium. It is a whole new product that has already set an enormous amount of interest going for it.
The Xperia Z5 Premium looks set to alter the smartphone segment in a huge way since it has become the first device to come with a 4K screen. If the arrival of the full HD display became the game changer a few years ago, the 2K resolution has largely gone by with questions about efficiency. The entry into the 4K landscape, though, brings a lot of advantages that will help overcome the notion of requirement over luxury. Used within a 5.5 inch screen, the Xperia Z5 Premium boasts of more than 800 PPI. It becomes the first phone to cross this landmark.
The Xperia Z5, meanwhile, comes with the same 5.2 inch full HD display that has already been seen in a number of predecessors. Due to its ability to jack up a lot of brightness, the screen remains extremely versatile. The full HD resolution is more than good enough to provide sharp and crisp pictures. The customers for the Xperia Z5 Premium will be only those who demand the best of the bunch. For those with practicality and budget on their minds, the Xperia Z5 should be more than perfect.
Recognizing the fact that 4K videos take up a lot of space, Sony has provided alternative arrangements on the Xperia Z5 Premium and the Xperia Z5. Aside from the 32 GB of internal storage which seems only decent by today’s standards, the phone has the capability to add 200 GB through memory cards. Yes, these two devices can now hold a maximum theoretical capacity of more than 250 GB. This is particularly advantageous considering that smartphones today have not gone beyond the 128 GB mark until now. This vast amount of storage, though, will be just about enough for the users with a lot of 4K content.
The ‘two-day’ battery life has been a standout aspect of Xperia phones over the last few years. Sony may struggle to replicate it on the Xperia Z5 since the battery capacity has been reduced to just 2900 mAh in this device. Comparatively, the Xperia Z5 Premium is provided with much more capacity. It has a 3430 mAh battery and this capacity is partly provided by taking into account the humongous resolution with the screen. This battery coupled with a range of battery saving features help Sony live up to this incredible claim. The two phones also come with fast charging capabilities. They are likely to be available in the stores from October 2015 onwards.
