We provided an in-depth evaluation of the Xperia Z5 Premium's features. We thoroughly reviewed its strengths and weaknesses. Here, we consolidated our thoughts on whether you should get the Xperia Z5 Premium.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Xperia Z5 Premium

The CPU performance of Xperia Z5 Premium

The 2.0GHz+1.5GHz×8(OctaCore) processing speed of the Xperia Z5 Premium is on the higher side, so it should be able to run most apps with no problems. The performance of this phone is at a high level when compared to others released on the market so far. You can play a comparatively large amount of 3D games with next to no issues.

The Xperia Z5 Premium has 3GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The Xperia Z5 Premium has the overall operating speed of a high-end smartphone, so it will hardly ever cause you trouble. But you might need to be careful when using heavy apps like 3D games a lot.

Xperia Z5 Premium's storage capacity

The Xperia Z5 Premium has 32GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the Xperia Z5 Premium is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

The camera function of Xperia Z5 Premium

The Xperia Z5 Premium has an ultrahigh performance 23 MP main camera. This allows you to make high-quality photos and will rarely leave you wanting with regard to camera performance. This will make using your camera fun.

The Xperia Z5 Premium comes equipped with a 1 MP pixel front-facing camera, which is very low resolution. If you aren't particular about your videos or photos, it might be fine, but otherwise, we recommend a smartphone at least one tier higher.

The battery performance of Xperia Z5 Premium

The Xperia Z5 Premium has a relatively large battery with 3430 mAh. The Xperia Z5 Premium has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

Xperia Z5 Premium's size

The Xperia Z5 Premium is 3.0 inches (75.8 mm) wide, 6.1 inches (154.4 mm) tall, and 0.3 inches (7.8 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Xperia Z5 Premium, it weighs about 180 oz (180 g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

In giving an overall rating to the Xperia Z5 Premium, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Xperia Z5 Premium's screen

The Xperia Z5 Premium has a 5.5 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The screen of the Xperia Z5 Premium is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

Overall assessment of Xperia Z5 Premium

The Xperia Z5 Premium is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.

The merits and demerits of Xperia Z5 Premium

The merits of Xperia Z5 Premium

  • With the large display you can comfortably use it to watch videos and play games.
  • Photos and videos are beautiful to look at on the clear screen.
  • Its battery life is quite long, so you won't have to worry too much about running out of battery.
  • The CPU specs are quite high and using ordinary apps is almost always stress-free.
  • The extremely high-spec rear camera makes the phone great for taking photogenic and scenic shots.

The demerits of Xperia Z5 Premium

  • The rear-facing camera is very low resolution, so you should not think of using this smartphone as your main camera.
