How about experiencing Sony TV technologies delivered into your smartphone? Yes, Sony will provide you this amazing experience through their recent flagship Sony Xperia Z5 Premium – world’s first 4K display smartphone with a super-vivid sharp display and high-end camera. So if you are a big fan of Sony then all you need to do is pick a size; the Xperia Z5 Premium – a single hand holds 8.3 million pixels.

While other big companies like Samsung, Google, LG, and Xiaomi are migrating to Full HD (1080x1920p) to 2K (1440x2560p) panels Sony has gone too far bringing 4K (2160x3840p) displays – the first time in the world.


I’ll take some time to review the latest handset from Sony, let me first start with the display. Sony Xperia Z5 Premium comes with a 5.5-inch display with a 4K resolution that means a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels and an eye-watering 806 pixels per inch which are doubled compared to 401 pixels per inch of Apple’s iPhone 6S Plus comes on its 1080p screen.

The device is packed with intelligent noise reduction technology- you can increase image quality in high-motion scenes or footage shot in low-light for clearer, smoother images. Moreover, if you want to add unique color and bring together Live Colour LED and Live Colour Creation on your hand.


Xperia Z5 Premium runs on Android v5.1.1 (Lollipop) and packed with Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 chipsets with Quad-core 1.5GHz Cortex A53 and Quad-core 2GHz Cortex-A57. The smartphone is powered by non-removable Li-ion 2900 MAh battery which provides standby time up to 520 hours and talks time up to 13h 10min. Also comes with special features of fast battery charging, which charges 60% in 30 min.

When I talk about some other features of the device, Sony Xperia Z5 Premium is almost the same as its predecessors Xperia Z5 except for the bigger battery. Here are some details of Sony Xperia Z5 Premium.

  • Octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32GB internal storage, 200GB microSD card support
  • 23MP rear camera with LED flash
  • 5.1MP front camera
  • 4G support
  • 3,430mAh battery with QuickCharge 2.0 technology

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium; World’s First 4k Display Smartphone: Review 1

Coming to the quality of the rear camera, Xperia Z5 Premium contains powerful 23MP, 24mm, phase detection autofocus camera with LED flash and noise reduction technology. With Xperia Z5 Premium you can capture high-resolution 4K video which means you can frame flawless footage with Sony’s Handycam technologies. It also features with 1/2.3” sensor size, geo-tagging, touch focus detection, HDR, panorama and front camera comes with 5.1MP HDR.


The Z5 is one of the thickest smartphones at 7.8mm available in the market followed by the iPhone at 7.3mm and the Edge+ at 6.9mm. The Z5 Premium does still feel light in the hand, however, and the sharp edges characteristic of the Z line have been softened with rounded sides. If you’re expecting to reach the entire screen with one thumb while holding the phone the Premium is not for you, but it is noticeably smaller and more manageable than an iPhone 6s Plus.

The main drawback of the device only supports a single sim card slot. The smartphone is 154 gm in weight and 7.3mm thickness comes in four color variants – White, Gold graphite Black, Green to be available at 64,999  Rs.  in India and in the USA it is $975.


Now you need to worry about if your phone is dropped in water. The real value of a water-resistant phone is it affords peace of mind. It has water-resistant technologies which will save your phone from raindrops, spills or wet hands – just wash it up and your phone okay to go.

If I talk about the number I will keep Z5 Premium ahead of iPhone and Samsung Edge+ for its internal storage capacity as the phone comes with 3GB of RAM and 200 GB of external memory that can be expanded via a microSD card. Users have given 4.5 out of 5 and to be honest I completely agree with them.
