The latest handset from Sony is the Xperia Z5 32GB in gold, and although it’s got much the same design and style as the other members of the Xperia Z family, it’s a flagship handset that introduces a number of new, updated and exiting features from Sony.
First of all, the manufacturing materials of the handset have been updated, with the new frosted glass rear cover giving it a nice matt finish. The screen size remains the same as its predecessor at a 5.2in, with Triluminos Display IPS technology and resolution of 1080x1920.
It’s a pretty nifty handset with a Snapdragon 810 processor, and it’s reported to heat up less than its predecessors without compromising on speed. As usual, Sony have delivered a handset with great battery life, claiming up to two days of usage on one full charge.
As with earlier Xperia Z phones, Sony made this handset waterproof, and it’s fully water resistant when immersed in up to one metre of water for up to thirty minutes, as well as being dust resistant.
It's also home to a fingerprint sensor. Although Sony has admitted it's a little behind in launching this new feature, it has made up for it by inventively placing the sensor within a side-mounted power button instead of on the centrally located home button. It's means it's much more ergonomic to use.
With 32GB of storage space as standard, there’s more than enough room for all of your music, videos, photos and apps, with the option to expand the storage to up to a massive 200GB if needed thanks to the MicroSD card slot.
