as a comparison, I like the sharp display on note 5 and the battery is decent too, ever clocked 11 hrs OST.

however, full HD is enough for most of us.
seeing how the SD810 fares badly on the battery despite few versions,I'm still keen to see whether Sony delivers their promise on 2 days battery.

anyway,
LG is known for their thin bezels.
HTC, for best audio quality.
Samsung ,its display. and audio is catching up.
Sony, battery and design.

wonder why Sony can't catch up on audio and camera aspect despite they are good in audio stuffs and they supply the lens to other smartphone manufacturer.

think so far Z2 has the best audio quality among xperia. but not among all brands.

Uk/Euro pricing.

I believe they are always much more expensive there from my experience with online shopping

Still it won't be cheap... looking at Sony to priced it slightly higher than the recently released Samsung models in the same class here.

Aga price based on forum leak.

Z5C ~ less than 1K
Z5 ~ 1.1K
Z5P ~ 1.4K

But knowing sony, price will drop for sure.

You know, last time we used to think HD is sufficient and they introduced FHD display.

I think technology advancement is acceptable as long as it does not compromise the battery life.

Next time we might see 8K resolution or higher.

Mayb wait til march 15 when z5+ or z6 is announced, then z5 premium price wil drop to acceptable level.. By then we wil know how does the batt life n camera pics wil fare... Its absolutely not worth to spend this money on a new flagship now... Jus got to wait.... Meanwhile i wil hold on to my z3+..

Whats disappointing is all z5 series batt size dont impress much.

Interested in the Z5 premium, especially the chrome model which looked very nice.

Since it is using Snapdragon 810 it supports CAT9 LTE only. Snapdragon 820 supports CAT10 LTE

Singtel is now testing its network and upgrading to CAT10 LTE, eventually.

Coming from the Z3+, I'm also only interested in the Z5 Premium. But need to really compare the 4K screen to see if it's worth the upgrade.

Agree with this - marketing must be greatly improved if Sony wants to earn from z5

Sony says its use of a "high capacity" 3,430 mAh battery and memory-on-display tech - which allows a static image to remain on show without requiring extra processing power - should mean the handset lasts for "up to two days" between charges.

________

The explanation on camera is intriguing as well
