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!
A lot of negative reviews are because of user error so be warned!
Picture quality (one of he best on the market)
Video quality (up to 4k, you can downgrade it for higher FPS)
Screen quality (it's true 4k)
Processor speed (this phone will NOT lag, regardless of how many apps you have running)
Fingerprint sensor (only available on non-us Z5 premiums)
Chrome mirror back (girls could do their makeup in this thing)
Sturdiness (I've dropped this phone more times that i can count on cement, it's still kickin)
Battery Life (more apps = less battery life, my phone lasts about 12-14 hours with HEAVY use)
Price (its expensive)
Waterproof (it is NOT waterproof, only extremely resistant. I dont care what sony says, do not go swimming with this phone)
Rooting (you cannot root this phone without destroying camera quality and other proprietary features)
Negative statement #1: This phones picture quality sucks! My *insert phone type here* was much better!
Resolution: Actually Sony by default sets this phone too 8mp 16:9 ratio. If you click the settings button while in your camera you can manually set it to 23mp 4:3. Be warned, it will be a STUNNING photo but it will also be 10 MB of data per pic. Also I've noticed Instagram and other social sites has a hard time compressing these photos because they are such a high quality. You might want to find a good compressor program as well.
Negative statement #2: There's no warranty Sony does not stand behind there product.
Resolution: Actually there is a warranty on the non-us version's of this phone. However you most likely will need to ship your phone to wherever that non-us location is. For example lets say the phone was originally for the Thailand market. You would have to contact support in Thailand. An easier way to deal with this is to get an extended warranty, OR purchase a US version of this phone at the sacrifice of the fingerprint sensor (id personally opt for a squaretrade warranty).
Negative statement #3 & #4: The phone wont charge properly or turn on / it keeps connect and reconnecting from the micro-usb port.
Resolution: This phone is built SOLID, i've gone through like 7 charging cables in 12 months from the micro usb cords becoming bent. This is a good thing, id rather the cords bend then my $500 phones micro-usd female port. Get some extra cords and test it!
Negative statement #5: It scratches to easily.
Resolution: Buy a case....? Why would you 1 star a phone on this, all phones scratch. The screen is SUPER resilient however. Also I just replaced the chrome finish on the back of my phone, it peels off with the right tools. But again this shouldn't effect reviews to much people..
Negative statement #6: Anything not cover in my above statements
Resolution: At the end of the day the z5 is a very complex electronic device. Sometimes for whatever reason a few bad eggs are made with ANY phone. And that's why warranties are important, chances are you'll be fine but there's always that 1/10,000 chance. If you're not sure where to get a warranty check out statement #2.
