When it comes to the Sony Xperia Z5 handset’s look and design, Sony hasn’t really made many changes to the formula that’s been in place since the first Sony Xperia Z.
But although it retains the industrial, square look and style that makes it instantly recognisable as a Sony Xperia handset, the Z5 features a series of tweaks and new features that might make it more desirable than its predecessors.
The new frosted glass rear cover gives the handset a lovely matt finish and the graded metal frame matches the unusual and stand-out green colour. The phone can also be immersed in water up to one metre for as long as thirty minutes, without having to worry about any damage being done. The headphone and USB ports only have one flap to cover them, making it more hassle-free.
A new feature incorporated into the Z5 is the rethought fingerprint sensor. This is housed in a flatter and slightly recessed power button, instead of the older, round button.
Sony has also made this more ergonomic than other handsets, as it’s placed in the natural position of your thumb when you pick up your phone.
The Snapdragon 810 processor is unchanged from the Z3, which makes the phone quite nippy to use and Sony users will be pleased to hear that it doesn’t share the same overheating issues as its predecessor.
The camera has also been updated, with a fantastic 23 megapixels lens that's perfect for taking clear and high resolution photographs.
The Sony Xperia Z5 in green comes with 32GB of integrated storage space, with 22.5GB of that space readily available to the user, meaning that you can store plenty of music, videos, photographs, and other files.
If you want to store even more, the handset has a useful MicroSD card slot.
