Sony Xperia Z5 Premium Games
The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium completes Sony’s trifecta of high-end Android smartphones for late 2015. As the name hints, this one is the range-topper, but for the most part it’s the same as the other two Xperia Z5 phones where it really matters. The Xperia Z5 range goes from the 4.6-inch Compact now up to the 5.5-inch Premium, meaning that you don’t have to have a large phone to also have the best hardware available.
The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium has a 5.5-inch LCD IPS display with a 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution. That resolution gives the Xperia Z5 Premium a pixel density of 806ppi, higher than anything we’ve seen before on a smartphone. What does this mean in reality? It means that the Z5 Premium has the ability to deliver fine detail more accurately than lesser devices, if the detail is there.
As with the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact, the Premium comes out of the box running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with a smattering of Sony customizations sprinkled over the top. That’s a good way to describe it, too, as Sony has come a long way from the Xperia of old where you’d be hard pushed some time to recognize the operating system beneath. What’s on top is light, doesn’t hamper performance and is mostly a pleasure to use.
The Xperia Z5 Premium measures 154.4 x 75.8 x 7.8mm and it weighs 180g. The Z5 Premium is waterproof, with IP65 and IP68 ratings, with open Micro-USB and headphone sockets. There’s a covered tray for the SIM and microSD card, supporting up to 200GB, a tray slot that’s smaller than previous handsets, which again is a result of evolutionary design.
