Average Rating:
83.7%


Description:

While premium-class would be a reasonable way to describe Sony's 2015 Xperia Z5, its offering of pros and cons is outdone by this 5.5-inch Premium variant, which scratches the Full HD 428ppi display for a 4K (3840 x 2160) TRILUMINOS screen on an impressive 806ppi pixel density.

In addition, it also has the highest battery capacity among all Z5 versions, standing at 3430mAh (with Quick Charge 2.0) . (Full pros and cons...)
