Sony Xperia Z5 is a breath-taking Android phone released a couple years ago, in 2015, featuring an extremely powerful Octa-Core CPU ticking at 2000 megahertz, a pretty big 5.2" capacitive display, and two cameras, a 23 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 5 mega-pixels front camera.

Sony sells the Sony Xperia Z5 with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 MSM8994 chip, backed up by a high speed Octa-Core CPU clocking at 2 GHz and a huge 3 GB RAM. To help with graphic calculations, it also counts with an Adreno 430 graphic processing unit clocking at 450 megahertz. A good point of this phone is its astonishing 32 GB internal storage memory and an SD memory card expansion slot, allowing you to store tons of applications, games, pictures and videos without thinking about filling the cellphone.

This cellphone is incredibly thin and comfortable, with a thickness of just 0.29". This cellphone is a compact cellphone, given that it has a 5.2 inches display and it's only 5.75" long. The Sony Xperia Z5 is available in a variety of color options, black, green, white and gold. Regarding its design, this cellphone is majorly made with Glass and Metal. Sony made a great job making this cellphone as lightweight as 5.43 oz.

This cellphone has two cameras, a 23 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 5 MP front camera. Its back-facing camera lens has an aperture of 1.8 so it can shoot clear pictures even in low light environments.

This cellphone also has lots of useful characteristics like flash, auto-focus, fast burst mode, digital image stabilization, smile detection shooting, face detection shooting and geo tagging.

This cellphone has a 2900 mAh amazing Li-Ion non-replaceable battery, enough to provide the Sony Xperia Z5 with an extremely long battery duration. Sony informs a stand by time of 520 hs and a talk time of 13.2 hours for this phone. An issue to consider is that the Sony Xperia Z5's battery isn't replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to get older, even though with this big battery you will probably buy a new phone before it happens.

This device offers wifi connectivity (which can be shared with other devices as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE-A) , the fastest internet connection and also HSPA+ internet connection, which is a lower speed 4G network or the fastest 3G internet connection, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies.
