The above details shows the specific features of Sony Z5 . Now let us cross examine some of these features:-

CAMERA

The all new sony Z5 provides a 23 megapixel rear camera.When we hear that it has a 23 mega pixel camera we would clearly be expecting some great photos from it. But the hard truth is that sony has failed to deliver it . The photos taken from sony Z5 is generally dull and it does not look like a 23 mega pixel photo at all.But the all new fastest autofocus feature of sony z5 is worth appreciating. It has lived upto its expectations.It really does capture all its photos in less than 0.04 seconds as told by the sony . Even the the sony z5 says that it has the best  camera compared to all the other sony phones, in reality all the features of sony z5s camera other than its autofocus is not that good.

DISPLAY

SONY z5 is the  e complained first 4k phone in the  world. So its display is pretty good. But many z5 users have complained that the brightness of the phone is not that good because at times it gets faded under direct exposure to the sun. While watching videos in this phone ,it does not feel exceptional even though it is a 4k phone. 

FASTNESS

The sony z5 has a 3GB ram and a qualcomm snadragon 810 processor . So yes, it is pretty fast and the multi tasking is also good.But the users say that it takes much time for switching on and off and also for setting up the phone in the first place.Other than those lags , sony z5 is pretty smooth and fast.

THE OTHER FEATURES

Besides these features, the Sony Z5 also has a fingerprint sensor attached to it. This sensor is pretty good and the fact that it is attached to the power button is new and a remarkable change too. The finger print sensor is fast but not the fastest. And also he fingerprint sensor does not work under water even when it is a fully water proof phone.All the other features in this phone are pretty much similar to the other smartphones.

COUNTERPARTS OF SONY Z5

The sony z5 has a lot of foes in the market . This includes:-
  • SAMSUNG S6
  • IPHONE 6S
  • SAMSUNG NOTE 5
  • LG G4
  • LG G5
  • SAMSUNG S7
  • SAMSUNG S6 EDGE
  • MICROSOFT LUMIA 950
  • IPHONE 6S PLUS
  • IPHONE 5S
  • LENOVO VIBE

                      So sony z5 has got a lot of similar counterparts in the market and all of them are aiming at nothing other than complete domination.

RESULTS 

So this is it! The results.
It is true than sony z5 is a good smartphone after all.But its price being at Rs 52000 or $784.94 , it  is not really worth a shot. This is because there are many other smartphones in the market at a price much much lower than that of sony Z5 and gives much more feature than this phone. So unless sony z5 reduces its price , it is really over ambitious and well above the budget of a common man. So over all sony z5 is only a ' not bad' smartphone.
