Bragging another set of incredible smartphone features is the Sony's Xperia Z5 trilogy. Although release date is yet to be announced, three versatile phones to choose from, namely, the 4K capable Z5 Premium, the Z5, and the smaller version Z5 compact, are set to be out in the market soon.
Similar as they may sound and look, each still has their own distinct features.
Talking about performance, these babies are built-in with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 chip and have similar Adreno 430 graphics processor. The only slight difference is their RAM where Z5 Compact has 2 GB while the other two have 3 GB.
Crowing on the display is Z5 Premium's 4K, the first in the world of smartphones - although this is only applicable when looking at images or playing videos on 4K. On the brighter side, imagine the 1080p viewing experience of the 806 ppi display from this device. The Z5, on the other hand, is 0.3 inches smaller than the Premium at 5.2 inches and is playing the conventional 1080p at 428 ppi. And last but not the least, the Compact at 4.6 inch comprises a 720p resolution with 323 ppi. The Compact seems the lowest but this may be more worth it compared with the new iPhone 6S' 321 ppi display.
In the era of selfies, camera is a must. Each has a 23-megapixel camera, which is exulting to have the fastest autofocus, and a 5.1-megapixel front camera. Also, we might not be needing power banks more often because of the 3430 mAh capacity the Premium offers, 2900 mAh on Z5 and, close behind, the Compact's 2700 mAh.
They are water resistant and have an IP68 rating, too! In other words, it can be submerged in fresh water up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes or less. But take note that underwater use is not highly recommended by the company.
The Z5 premium is available in Chrome, Black and Gold; while both Z5 and Z5 compact are obtainable in white and graphite black. However, interesting colors like green for the former, and yellow and coral for the latter are also on tap.
With all these cards laid on the table, it is up to you to choose the best.
