Sony Xperia Z5 Premium

 

The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium is a an expensive, no-compromise Android phone. It's Sony's equivalent to the iPhone 6S Plus and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

High-quality screen ; Good performance ; Expandable memory

Camera speed and low-light quality doesn't match best ; Expensive ; 4K display not much use ; Screen-on battery life worse than previous years

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium review

 

A matter of time before the world's first 4K smartphone makes sense

Sharp screen with 4K capability ; Vibrant but balanced colour palette ; Detailed, punchy audio ; Fast performance ; Good fingerprint scanner

4K screen capabilities largely unused ; Camera could be better ; Expensive

A good all-round performer, but the Z5 Premium needs more 4K mobile content for its USP to really make sense

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium review: a piece of technology history?

 

It's high-res but low on necessity

Great camera ; Waterproof

Battery not long-lasting ; Overheats with gaming

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium review: First class all the way?

 

The surprise of Sony's latest smartphone refresh is the Xperia Z5 Premium. It's a bold title for a device named to make a statement; it's a device that captured the imagination with its chrome mirrored finish and 4K display when we first saw it. The...

Display will make movies look great, waterproofing, microSD card slot, good battery performance

Camera is slow, lots of bloatware, some software changes are for the worse, design isn't as premium as some rivals

The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium is an interesting smartphone. It's launched with fanfare, but only really puts a higher resolution display on the front of the experience you'll get from the regular model. If you're after the Xperia experience in a larger...

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium review

 

The big daddy of the Xperia kingdom

Feels expensive ; Handy waterproofing ; High-quality screen

Quite bulky ; Most rivals have better low-light photo quality ; 4K display is largely meaningless

Big, powerful and certainly ‘Premium’, but it’s not a Samsung-killer.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium review

 

The world's first ever 4K phone is here

Huge 4K display ; Impressive finger scanner ; Great camera set up

Poor battery life ; Lacklustre design ; Cumbersome for some

Sony has done it – here's the first phone to ever have a 4K display and it's unsurprisingly stunning. But in the search for a headline feature, Sony has managed to miss the mark on a few of the basics that could have made this a fantastic phone.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium review

 

If you've been waiting for a 4K smartphone then the wait is suddenly over. Here's our Sony Xperia Z5 Premium review.

A 4K smartphone might seem like something you want but you really don't need it and it's an expensive card to play in order to trump your mates. The device is also big, uncomfortable and brash. Hardware is the same as the regular Z5 so it really comes...

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 Review: In Depth

 

Our full review of the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium, including an in-depth analysis of the 4K screen, 23MP camera, performance and battery life

Slick design ; Great camera ; Sharp, attractive screen

Expensive ; Battery life suffers ; 4K offers no real advantage

Sony’s Xperia Z5 Premium is the biggest of the new Xperia Z5 family and also a moment in history, thanks to that world-first 4K screen. In truth it’s more of a pub brag than a genuinely useful feature, but the Premium is still a solid media machine...

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium review: A 4K let-down with massive battery drain

 

It's very fast, has a 4K display, but the Xperia Z5 Premium's 4K display consumes a lot of battery

At launch, the Z5 Premium didn't do enough to justify a £600 price tag and being chosen over the original Z5. With better 4K support on Android and generally across apps, the Z5 Premium is a fast, phone that has a stunning display. Unfortunately, this...
