With a stylish metal body, a mind-blowingly high tech camera (23 megapixel) and a waterproof body, the Sony Xperia Z5 is – what you could call – an enticing package.
Rugged Yet Sleek: The New Favourite
Sony has always had an edge when it comes to design, and the Z5 contrasts a sleek metal, almost dainty, body with a certification of ruggedness – dust resistant, waterproof and scratch resistant glass with oleophobic coating! We recently wrote about waterproof mobiles and featured the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua in it; the Z5 makes for a solid addition to the list.
It has an IP65/68 rating, which means it is protected from all dust as well as submersion in water.
Measuring 154.4 x 75.8 x 7.8 mm, the Z5 has a 5.2 inch display with full HD (1920x1080px). It uses the Triluminos and X-Reality engines and the superior IPS technology for the screen. These, combined with the Dynamic Contrast Enhancer, further improve the viewing experience.
The Xperia Z5 comes in three comforting colours – black, green and gold. We’re partial to the green,though!
23 Megapixel Camera
Yes, that’s right. This mobile has a powerful 1/2.3” Exmor RS camera and ‘G’ lens, sensors for low light and superior image processing technology BIONZ to make it one of the best camera phones in the industry.
The Xperia Z5 runs on a non-removable Lithium-ion 3430 mAh battery that lasts 2 days and adds fast battery charging with Quick Charge 2.0 that lets it recharge up to 60% in 30 mins. The improved battery life is a result of the new screen technologies, according to what Sony executives told The Independent.
Integrated FingerPrint Scanner
Another thoughtfully designed addition is the fingerprint scanner that’s on the power button, so it only needs one click to securely unlock!
