It is quite obvious that specs-wise the Sony Xperia Z5 does not disappoint. The handset is powered by Qualcomm's top-of-the-line Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 chip, along with an Adreno 430 GPU(Graphics Processing Unit), 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. Sony is betting big on its new multi-aspect 23MP sensor, which is being marketed as the Z5's major feature. It's nonetheless an excellent camera and you can't wait to put it to use.
The Sony Xperia Z5’s 5.2inch Full HD Triluminos display boasts a massive resolution of 1080p. The display comes with a Dynamic Contrast Enhancer technology. With Dynamic Contrast Enhancer in the 4K Processor X1, the range of brightness is continually optimized frame by frame. It adjusts levels according to what’s happening on screen.
Design and build quality
One thing is definitely changed on the Z5 and that is the design and the same goes for its sibling - the Premium and Compact, as well. With the Z5 series Sony is making a significant revision of its signature design language. It is the biggest such undertaking since the Xperia Z1 and all members of the Z5 family, share this common new exterior. It seems that Sony's vision was to go a step beyond the symmetry of its previous devices.
The whole Z5 lineup shares a common design and the bunch can definitely be mistaken from a distance, especially if you don't watch out for the model-specific color options. This is arguably a better overall design that allows you to have both the premium feeling of a metal frame and protection against easy denting of said metal on the most-likely contact points in a drop.The back on the Z5 Compact is made of frosted glass (another way of saying matte glass) and Sony has really got the most out of the available materials. The body feels nice to the touch and the finish does not look cheap in any way. The handset comes in two classic colors - white and black, as well as two additional more vibrant options - yellow and green.
With the revolutionary integrated fingerprint sensor, you can rest assured that the Sony Xperia Z5 cannot be accessed by the wrong people. The sensor is located on the power button, which is placed in such a way that locking and unlocking the phone is a breeze
Sony Xperia Z5 battery life
The Sony Xperia Z5 is powered by a 2900 mAh battery, sealed-in, as expected. That is quite a bit less than the Z5 Premium at 3430 mAh, but still better than the 2700 mAh pack of the Z5 Compact. It provides a great deal of uninterrupted power that can last up to two days so that you can do more with your phone.
The Sony Xperia Z5 comes with rather minimalistic packaging. It is housed inside a white, two piece cardboard box, without any fancy finish, embossing or other accents to suggest a premium product. That, however, as in today's world a smartphone is almost never an off-the-shelf supermarket purchase.However, it is worth noting that the Z5 comes bundled with all the essentials; a wall charger (1.5 A), USB cable, both of nice quality as well as and a pair of in-ear headphones.
