Sony Xperia Z5 Dual Malaysia

Natural and Intuitive Design

The Xperia Z5 Dual’s design is a familiar experience to those familiar with Xperia smartphones, yet it differs in many good ways. Retaining the traditional Xperia styled balance in design, the Z5 Dual is a very well designed smartphone; the placements of all the buttons are in very natural places where our fingers will naturally rest on. The glass back of the Z5 Dual is now made of frosted glass instead of the glossy glass backs of previous Z models, reducing fingerprints and increasing grip.

The round power button of previous Xperia smartphone models is now replaced with a new power button that is wider and sits flush with the smartphone’s sides. The power button also doubles as a fingerprint sensor, the first smartphone to have it in an unconventional yet natural feeling position.

Effortless Great Photography

The Sony Xperia Z5 Dual brings over Sony’s excellent imaging technology that is garnered from the many years of producing their excellent cameras. The 23-megapixel camera of the Sony Xperia Z5 Dual is one of the best among smartphones in terms of colour accuracy and capturing speed. It utilizes Sony’s Hybrid Autofocus technology for an insanely fast focus speed of just 0.03 seconds.

Sony has also put in their Clear Image Zoom technology for superior digital zoom. You can zoom in with the Xperia Z5 Dual’s camera five times without image quality loss thanks to the amazing technology. The Z5 Dual’s camera is also optimized for shooting in low-light situations; so be confident with your shot when you pull out the smartphone during a party or a dinner.

Two Days of Battery Life – Xperia Z5 Dual Malaysia

The Xperia Z5 Dual is packed with a battery that can last up to two days of normal use, twice the battery life of many other smartphones. This is thanks to Sony’s great software optimization and their innovative technology, going hand-in-hand together to provide exceptional battery life for you. It’s a smartphone that lasts longer than you.
