Description

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium is one of Sony’s trio of new Android smartphones and it is what you’d expect from them. It has an improved 23 megapixel camera on the back, a Snapdragon 810 chip, Adreno 430 GPU and 3 gigabytes of RAM inside alongside a beefy 3400 milliamp hour battery. All these are in a metal body that’s IP68 water-resistant and flat with its clean understated design.

It’s rocking a 5.5 inch 4k IPS display on the front. That rings in at an insane pixel density of 806 pixels per inch. 4k is another word for UHD resolution which is 3840 by 2160 which is exactly 4 times 1080p. That’s a lot of pixels and this is the world’s first 4k smartphone or to be a little bit more precise the world’s first smartphone with a 4k display. The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium renders pretty much everything at a 4 to 1 ratio so 1920 by 1080.

If you take a screenshot of the home screen it’ll tell you it’s 1920 by 1080. Most apps that read the phone’s resolution will tell you it’s 1080p. This is because it’s rendering everything at that 1080p for regular use and this saves battery and graphic strain on the GPU. But in certain apps it does render in full 4k specifically in apps where you’re viewing high resolution content like in your gallery when you’re looking at super high res images or watching 4k video. The weird thing is you can actually see it snap into 4k mode. It takes a few seconds once you open the content but then once you see it it snaps on and when it does it sort of unlocks a bunch of detail.

The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium is rendering most of the UI elements, graphics, games and apps at 1080p. This is good because it’s saving a little bit of battery life and a little bit of graphics. Here you’re not dropping any frames trying to push all those pixels with huge animations but when it actually does click into 4k mode it takes a second and there’s a very small observable difference at a very close distance from your face.

This kind of shines light on the fact that at this level resolution isn’t everything. The bigger differences you’ll see between this display and others will be in viewing angles ,contrast ratios, Colour temperatures, accuracy and brightness. The fact is that we are have a smartphone with a 4k screen. It’s an engineering feat and it’s something we kind of predict a little while ago. We gonna see 4k phones sooner or later in probably a year or two we’re going to be having 4k displays in our pockets as insane.

The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium is the first smartphone with a 4k display with a panel of its kind.
