Beautiful Sony Xperia Z5 Premium hands-on: World’s first 4K display!

Besides Sony Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact, Sony Xperia Z5 Premium is also the name that has mentioned for many times recently. It is proud of being the world’s first smartphone sporting up to 4K resolution.

Specifically, Sony Xperia Z5 Premium uses a 5.5-inch IPS LCD screen with 4K resolution and super high 806 PPI. However, the problem that makes people concern about the phone is quite similar to the prob of TV 4K. It is the fact of lacking original 4K contents, which will force the machine to upscale the images and videos to 4K and normally their qualities will not be as good as the original’s.

Apart from the display, other Sony Xperia Z5 Premium specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chip, 3GB RAM paired with 32GB of expandable storage, a fingerprint sensor built in the home button and Android 5.1 Lollipop OS. On the other hand, it also comes with the IP65/68 standard and a combo of 23MP rear and 5MP front camera. Like Z5, the main snapper supports recording 4K videos with 12,800 ISO, autofocus speed of 0.03s and 5X zoom without reducing much the pic’s quality.

In terms of Sony Xperia Z5 Premium design, we are aware that it is quite thicker and heavier than its sibling Sony Xperia Z3 Plus when measuring 7.8mm and weighing 180 grams. This may due to the 4K feature and larger 3,430mAh battery.
