Sony has launched three new smartphones during the IFA 2015, which it calls the Xperia Z5 line of smartphones. When the company announced the phones on September 3, they were available for pre-order on Sony's UK website with relatively high prices: £549 for the Z5 Compact, £599 for the Z5 and £699 for the Z5 Premium. The next day however, Sony seemed to have changed its mind about the pricing, as it slashed the phones' prices significantly. According to a report in Digital Trends, the Z5 Compact is now at £429, the Z5 is now at £549 and the Z5 Premium is now at £629.
Among the three smartphones, it is the Xperia Z5 Premium that some reports are saying is well-worth the investment, especially since a lot more people are looking for high-end or premium smartphones.
Another report in Forbes takes a look at several reasons why one should choose to buy the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium. The first reason cited is its 4K or Quad HD screen, which makes for a richer display especially for existing content that requires this high a resolution. According to the report, "the display is excellent" and it is "bright and sharp." The phone's X-reality engine also "upscales HD content to 4K" and this includes YouTube videos and home movies. more >>
