Sony Xperia Z5 Review: Price, Specs, Pros and Cons

Review of Sony Xperia Z5 at a Glance:-

Every Established Smartphone brand has a Premium Flagship series that launched after a time interval. Sony has "Z" series where they have now launched Sony Xperia Z5 with specs like 23 MP rear camera with 4K video recording,  Snapdragon 810, 5.2 inches display, Fingerprint sensor, 32 GB ROM 200 GB Ext. SD support, 3 GB RAM and 2900 mAh battery. Here we will have Short review, Pros and Cons of Sony Xperia Z5.

The day when Sony introduced OmniBalance design in Xperia Z from that day Sony retained this design till now and I think they make it signature design for their smartphone. The handset constitutes of frosted glass back, metallic frame and Scratch-resistant Triluminos display. It feels compact and solid in hand as we are observing the most of Smartphone are reducing the area covered by bezels or trying to make the bezel free display but Xperia Z5 has comparatively large bezels. On the top 3.5mm headphone jack and USB cable port on bottom, power key fixed at right edge nearly in center and just below this key volume rockers and a dedicated camera button is located. Left edge is nearly clean where only card slot is placed.

The previous Sony Xperia Z3+ was configured with same Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 processor has the Heating problem and Sony was not able to completely resolve this problem. But in this handset the case is completely different it does not heat like Z3+ although we are not completely ignoring this statement that the Xperia Z5 does not Heat; it heats up but only when the you are using it for the 4K video recording and also heats up when you make heavy load over CPU. The handset delivers mostly lag free smooth experience you will not feel linger while using your favourite apps.

5.2 inches IPS LCD capacitive display has 1080 x 1920 pixels resolutions with 428 ppi display density; and the display in all aspect from brightness, viewing angle, image clarity and colour production everything is crystal clear. We didn’t find anything bad about its display while the bezel covers more of the display area. The screen has Scratch-resistant glass with oleophobic coating that prevents display from scratches. This phone has waterproof and dust tight design (rating of IP65/68) that protects your phone from accidental splash.
The camera is most talked about feature on this device featuring 23 MP Exmor RS™ sensor with Hybrid Autofocus that takes only 0.03 Seconds. On dxomark It has best Smartphone camera with 87 points that is 1 point more than Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge (86 rating) and 5 Points more than Apple iPhone 6 Plus (82 rating).
Some people are complaining about the time taken by opening of camera is little bit long although after OTA update it fixes. 
On the basis of Official Sony website its 2900 mAh battery can run for 2 days although this is completely depend upon user for how long time he use the different power consuming features while  its battery is average for us that can give battery backup of more than one day.
If your handset is running low you can enable Ultra STAMINA Mode which can extend the battery. With Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 you can accelerate the charging it charges the handset 40% faster.
