The new Z5 smartphone is a continuation of the top line from the Japanese manufacturer. The smartphone turned out to be stylish, powerful and practical, and in some aspects even ahead of its predecessors. Let's take a closer look at the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact, mini flagship specifications and design.
The plastic one-piece body is waterproof here, so you should not be afraid to use your smartphone in rainy weather. The device can stay in the water for some time without any negative consequences. Users are free to choose from several color options, including red, sandy yellow, black, white and coral. All options look great. The smartphone lies perfectly in the hand, does not slip and is extremely easy to use. So the developers have something to please customers, since the aesthetic side is a clear advantage of Sony Xperia Z5. Specifications, however, are also not far behind.
On the front panel, in addition to the display, there is a front camera, a speaker, a light indicator andapproximations. There are no mechanical or touch keys on the front side.
On the right side of the device are the volume buttons, camera activation, power and a fingerprint sensor. Now the smartphone can be unlocked with a single touch.
From the left end there is a plug that hides compartments for flash drives and SIM cards. Above is a 3.5 mm headset jack and an additional microphone, and below is the main microphone and a micro-USB connector for synchronizing a smartphone with a computer or charging. We note that the device supports the function of fast and wireless charging. The camera and flash are located on the back.
Total dimensions of the device are 127 x 65 x 8.9mm and weight 138g
The 4.6-inch screen has a high-quality IPS-matrix. The resolution is 720 p with a pixel density of 323 ppi. The display has an oleophobic coating and special protection against scratches, which makes using the device even more comfortable. The colors in the smartphone are good, the viewing angles are decent, the device behaves great in the sun: the display practically does not fade. In general, everything is in order with the Sony screen, as always, although, perhaps, someone was waiting for Full HD for such a price.
Sony Xperia Z5 Compact: flagship specifications
The device is endowed with an octa-core Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 processor: four cores (Cortex-A53) operate at a frequency of 1.5 GHz, and the other four (Cortex-A57) operate at a frequency of 2 GHz.RAM, unfortunately, is only 2 GB, although 3 could be installed to match the general technical capabilities. But the developers did not stint on memory for data storage, since there is as much as 32 GB here, expandable using micro-SD memory cards. The smartphone can read flash drives up to 200 GB. Speaking of communication and interfaces, we note 4G, Bluetooth v4.1, micro-USB v2.0, USB-Host and Wi-Fi: 802.11.
Next in line are the most interesting features of the Sony Xperia Z5 - the technical characteristics of the optics. The main camera has 23 megapixels, LED flash and excellent autofocus, which allows you to achieve extraordinary image quality. Additional features include face recognition, HDR, geo-tagging, panoramic shooting, and other interesting features. It should also be noted that the device shoots videos with a resolution of 4K at 30 frames / s.
Front optics are a bit more modest: only 5.1 megapixels. However, selfies come out of a very high level. In addition, the presence of the HDR function and the ability to make videos with a resolution of 1080p are pleasing.
Further in the review of "Sony Xperia Z5" - the technical characteristics of the speaker and music player. The speaker of the smartphone turned out to be quite loud and clear: melodies are clearly audible even from your pocket. The sound in the headphones allows you to abandon the MP3 player and use your smartphone as a music gadget. A wide range of different functions makes it possible to make all the necessary settings. Creationplaylists, equalizer adjustment and preset sound profiles are just some of them.
The model has a 2700 Li-Ion battery, which is not a very impressive figure. Although the screen of the smartphone is small, and the resolution is the usual HD, nevertheless, with intensive use, you will have to charge the gadget daily, with moderate use - once every one and a half days. This is where the fast charging option comes in, which allows you to add up to 5 hours of battery life in 10 minutes (in moderate mode, of course).
The Sony Xperia Z5 smartphone (technical specifications confirm this) turned out to be powerful, functional and stylish. Impressed with an attractive display and a camera that allows you to take great pictures and high-quality videos. Impressive set of all the most advanced interfaces along with high-quality sound. Among the shortcomings, we note that for the price of 24-25 thousand rubles, the developers simply had to install 3 GB of RAM and a Full HD display. If there is no urgent need for the latter, since the screen sizes here are quite small by modern standards, then 2 GB of RAM may soon become a serious drawback. It would also be useful to install a more capacious battery of the order of 3000 mAh. The overall picture is obvious: the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact, whose technical characteristics and multimedia capabilities clearly met the expectations of many (which is worth the camera alone), unfortunately, did not do without flaws. Perhaps theywill be corrected in the next models of the line.
