Sony Xperia Z5: Specs

When Sony's Xperia Z lineup of smartphones launched, it was one of the first devices to integrate a water-resistant body into a smartphone. Since then, the Xperia Z family has become iteratively better with every release, without shifting from the original design ethos that made the device stand out. Last year's Xperia Z5 was the last to receive the Xperia Z moniker, with the company shifting things up a few letters in 2016 to the Xperia X family of phones.

Sony Xperia Z5: Buy outright

No longer the king of the Sony smartphone castle since the launch of the Sony Xperia X Performance, the Xperia Z5 still has enough grunt in the specs department that its age shouldn't be held against it. That's especially true for Sony fans disappointed that the Xperia X family ditched water resistance as a standard feature.

Sony Xperia Z5: Review

With its waterproof body, solid battery life and integrated fingerprint scanner on the side-mounted power button, the Xperia Z5 was well received when we reviewed it. The camera was a stellar performer, with the phone's design also impressive.

"Sony's Xperia range is meant to be evocative of the company's TV panels, which gives them a look that's quite distinct from competitor devices. That's totally an aesthetic call, but if you want something that doesn't look like everyone else's Galaxy or iPhone device, it's a solid option"

Sony's user interface over the top of Android did prove to be a bit glitchy, and the phone has a tendency to get hot. Still, these issues don't change the fact the Z5 is a decent option for anyone looking for a flagship smartphone on a budget.
