Xperia Z5 Review - The Tiny Big Gun
Calling the Xperia Z5 the tiny big gun is about as accurate as you can with an accurate tagline. In a world where most high-performance flagship smartphones are larger than anything, there seems to be a small little nook where compact phones are very much appreciated. The problem with small smartphones is that they tend to be entry-level smartphones, which makes them underpowered, for the most part.
But what if you want flagship-level performance in a compact smartphone? There are not many choices when it comes to such demands, that is until the Xperia Z Compact line of compact flagship smartphones. The Xperia Z5 Compact is one of the latest iterations in the ever-expanding line of flagship-level specification smartphones in compact bodies. Say goodbye to underperforming compact smartphones!
Xperia Z5 Compact's Performance
The Z5 Compact packs in the exact same specifications as its larger counterparts, save for a few minor differences. At the very heart of the Z5 Compact sits the ever powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor and an Adreno 430 GPU for all the graphics processing. It also utilizes 2GB of RAM and an internal storage of 32 GB which is expandable via a micro SD card (up to 200GB).
Many smartphone enthusiasts are afraid of the Snapdragon 810 chip because of the controversy that it could overheat and drop in performance; that is not quite the case, however. The Snapdragon 810 chipset in the Xperia Z5 Compact performs admirably and even exceeds expectations. For those who like to play mobile games, the heat of the smartphone does get slightly higher, but that is very normal.
Experience 2 days battery life with the Xperia Z5 Compact in Malaysia
As is standard with Sony Xperia smartphones, the Xperia Z5 Compact enjoys two days worth of battery life – which is also depending on usage of course. This is thanks to the combination of the generous 2700 mAh battery capacity, the efficient Snapdragon 810 chipset, the High Definition 720p display, and Sony's excellent software optimization for it to run better and more efficiently.
Spills and Splashes? No problem.
The Sony Xperia Z5 Compact is not only easily pocketable and fun to use, but it is also waterproof and dust resistant with IP65 and IP68 rating. Meaning you will not have to worry about using your smartphone in the rain, or if there will be any splashes or spills. Moreover, if you somehow managed to get your phone dirty, you can clean it off with water and it can still operate like normal after.
