Bottom Line

The Sony Xperia Z5 is a great looking phone with some nice features, but it feels more like an “update” to the Z3+ than a new flagship from Sony.


The Sony Xperia Z5 is a 5.2-inch smartphone that had a late 2015 release. It has been praised for its sleek glass design and metal lining, its water resistant design, and its fast performance. Users loved the easy-to-use interface that is close to stock Android, and the new upgraded camera takes amazing photos in well-lit conditions. However, apart from a few upgrades like the camera and fingerprint scanner, the Z5’s specs look too similar to its predecessor the Z3+ to warrant an upgrade.

  • Weight: 0.33 lbs
  • Processor: Snapdragon 810 MSM8994 2GHz
  • Display Size: 5.2 inches
  • RAM: 3GB
  • Operating System: Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
  • Battery Life: 13.25 hours

    Even with strong specs befitting a high-end phone, the Sony Xperia Z5 adds little over its predecessor to make it an exciting option over rivals like the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

    The Sony Xperia Z5 isn’t a flagship phone, and is also too expensive to be considered a true mid-range handset.

    The Xperia Z5 is a huge improvement on the Xperia Z3+ with a new fingerprint sensor and a sexy design, but there are still a few little issues stopping it from getting that perfect score.
