I'll try and keep this short, but at least provide some more of a detailed review. Feel free to check the other versions of Z5 Premium (Chrome and Black) for others, but I notice the Gold version is sorely lacking any thorough review so here go:
I've been using this phone for about month and don't typically review anything until I have had a chance to use it for more than a few days. First impressions can be misleading, so I let myself download apps, use throughout the day, take pictures, videos, etc and get a feel for the phone. I will say I have used a few other Xperias before. I am jumping from a Xperia Z1 I purchased in Japan about 2 years ago and loved that phone as well. Probably some Sony fanboy-ish going on here, but I will try and be as neutral as possible.
Performance of the phone is fantastic. Everything moves very quick and smooth. Responds very well overall. One of my favorite features (yes it's nothing new, but performs so so well) is the fingerprint scanner. Like I said, I have worked in the cellular industry and I know the iPhone first brought this to the mainstream but I've really found myself using the fingerprint scanner a lot and the fact that the phone is larger, the scanner is actually a much easier way to unlock the screen than sliding up the unlock motion. And again, it just works so smooth!
Perhaps my favorite part of this phone, and a big purchasing decision, is the camera. I have two little ones and whenever the family is out, I am typically default camera man, so there was a lot of debate with the wife as to whether I should invest in a good DSLR camera or buy the loaded Z5P phone. I haven't regretted my decision as the Z5P takes beautiful pictures, 23MP, though I find myself using the 20MP 16:9 format and even the Premium Auto mode is great for taking quick shots (using the quick wake up mode). Yes, it does take 4K video, which looks unbelievable. And Sony does have a little snapshot tool to take 8MP screenshots of 4K video stills if you so desire. The 4K SCREEN ON THE PHONE looks phenomenal. I've read a lot of tech sites instantly saying that the 4K screen is unnecessary and a gimmick, however to be honest, I'm not sure what screen they're looking at. I've put up the Z5P screen next to my Z1 (1080p) and for me personally I can definitely tell a difference. The Z5P is so much clearer and the colors are very vibrant (though not overly saturated). Also, the camera has a 1080p/60fps video mode which also works great. Lastly, the camera has an insanely fast autofocus, which does actually autofocus, which helps with quickshots. Again, camera alone was worth the purchase.
Battery: Always a touchy issue with so many and always the quickest to get people to stop buying your product. With heavy usage, and again, from experience, I know what constitutes heavy, you can still EASILY get a days worth of usage on your phone. I have tried several times to intentionally kill my battery doing things that typically kill other phones instantly--biggies being streaming video, games, GPS, camera and the often under-appreciated phone calls/video(data) calls. I don't think people really know how much phone calls kill your battery, but again, tried to get it to under a day and it didn't really work. I would still have about 20% at the end (say 9-10pm) of the day. Now again, I don't have the luxury of literally sitting down from 8am-8pm doing nothing but that, but throughout the day, I would watch/play/listen/etc and still had enough battery to do more by the time I put the kids to bed. Also, the last few days I've been trying something else and seeing how the battery preserves itself. During work, I don't heavily use my phone (because, you know, I'm WORKING), but even at that with 2 email accounts synced up, and other various services running (mind you, no facebook, twitter or other SNS-sorry no social life :) I still do some messaging but still have about 80% at the end of day. I DO NOT charge the phone overnight, lose a couple more percentages and start day 2 with about 75-78%. I then continue to work again and continue to drain battery and again still have a moderate (about 65%) battery. Now again, by no means am I saying this is an end-all guide to the 5-day battery phone, but again, for practical usage for people who don't live on their phones 24/7 I can easily get 3 working days of usage on my phone, maybe 4 if I push it. Again many factors go into this, screen brightness, accounts, etc. but I have been thrilled with my battery life.
Ok, I'm rambling too much so I'll wrap it up. Quickly wanted to address a negative:
Bezel--never understood why people think this phone has larger bezels than others. I think there was someone who actually measured the % of screen that the bezels take up and Xperias actually have a better % than iPhones and some others. Now one thing I will note is the 3 touch buttons (back, home and apps) are taking up part of the 5.5" screen. While others, like Samsung have the buttons underneath so you get a true full screen. Anyway, minor design gripe, but still more than enough real estate on the screen.
Little extra here too, again, read about how some people thought it was such a novelty that the phone was water/dust proof rated yet kept the charging port open. If you have experience with Japanese phones, you probably know that waterproofing phones is very old news. Almost all Japanese phone manufacturers, Sony, Sharp, Kyocera, make all their phones waterproof because many Japanese take their phones in the bath with them. In fact, my wife has a basic Sharp Aquos from about 2-2 1/2 years ago that is also waterproof, but already had the open charging port design implemented. Again, just a little tidbit there about the novelty of waterproofing phones, so yes the charging port is open, but the phone is still sealed. I also can attest to this as I have used the phone for pictures in not only heavy rainfall but also at a waterpark (my little girl drenched my phone but totally fine).
Alright, I'm done now. Hopefully this helped out and if you purchase it, ENJOY!
Robert here...I got my Z5 Premium this past Sunday and thus far, I absolutely LOVE this phone. After doing much research, I picked the single sim International version as it has the capacity for faster download. I'm really impressed with the sound quality of this piece. I'd been using an old Droid3 as my Mp3 player and using a cheap ZTE Maven as my communicator with Cricket service. I had to take it to a Cricket store to get the mini sim cut to nano size (free). Being an E6853 vs the E6883, the product registration site wouldn't allow me to register so I had to call. It turns out mine was originally set for the Panamanian market. The young lady I spoke with, Alice, was very helpful with getting me set up for my 1 yr warranty.
I chose the gold color and it is so beautiful. It's such a shame I have to cover it up with a TUDIA Slim-Fit MERGE case. The case actually is very nice though. I am really afraid of damaging this thing.
I chose the Z5 Premium mostly for its music handling prowess. This thing must have some Walkman genes in it. I think I found a replacement for my Zune with the cracked screen. I've read some iffy reviews regarding the fingerprint scanner but' I've not had any problem with it at all. It does not work when you first power up the phone and that's by design. The volume button location is a bit kooky but, I can get used to that. It seems a bit slow to sync with MediaPlayer. I'm gonna try and use a faster port. I've also heard of people complaining about a lack of image stability. Mine has it and it works very well. One cool thing I found with this being an unlocked phone is I'm able to use tethering on USB/Bluetooth and WiFi HotSpot with no restrictions.
This is going to be a rolling review as I gain more experience with it so, I will update later.
I've had my phone shut down/reboot on me twice. Both times it had been in my front jeans pocket. I bet it overheated and went into protection. Thinking back now, I wonder if this is why I've had so much trouble with my android phones. I've had them reboot on me before and this Xperia Z5 Premium is the first one that's performed the same after. I think I like that. I'm still going to work on that pocket thing, though. Everything else is perfect so far.
I wish I could say everything was still perfect but, the headphone jack issue. I am contemplating taking it to a cellphone repair. I can always just use the Bluetooth feature but, then the Hi-Res doesn't work the same. Also, the FM radio feature uses the headphone wires as the antenna. Other than these, the phone is perfect! I think the wired headphone's sound benefits may be worth it. If I have the jack fixed, I will report back. I still give it 5 stars.
I got my headphone jack replaced for $42 US. Now, the phone is perfect again. The tech told me it wouldn't be waterproof anymore. I have dropped the phone a few times with no damage because I have a Tudia Merge case on it. I still love this phone. Now, here is something I discovered for myself. I live in a location with very spotty LTE service. When I'm inside, I get barely 1 bar of signal. However, when I switched Preferred network type to WCDMA(preferred)/GSM, I get very strong and stable HSDPA Plus. https://goo.gl/photos/9iD489VLDbzBfpHz8 . I still wish I could take good pics of the Moon.
