Sony’s Xperia Z series is the best example of refined improvements. With each generation, the devices have become better than their previous iteration. In its sixth generation, the latest offering the from the Japanese electronics giant brings forth loaded specs, at least on paper. However, the specs don’t seem to translate to real-life experience. Plus, the design language is similar to its predecessors, and the device doesn`t seem to offer anything better than the competition either. On the plus side, the Xperia Z5 is quite compact, features a super-fast fingerprint reader and comes powered by top-of-the-line hardware. In fact, when we bring the competition into purview, it becomes an extremely difficult case for the Xperia Z5. While its asking price of Rs 52,990 (available online for as low as Rs 49,000) pits it against the likes of Samsung Galaxy Note5 (review) and LG G4 (first impressions camera review), being compact, we won’t compare it with the phablets. It’s biggest rival would be the Samsung Galaxy S6 (first impressions) and its curvy sibling, the Galaxy S6 edge (review FAQs). The Samsung offerings flaunt gorgeous designs, superb displays, stunning image quality from the cameras and powerful innards. By virtue of price drops, the phones are also available at much more affordable price points. If you have half a lakh rupees to spend and you want a device that`s optimum for one-hand usage, then you can also look at the latest Apple iPhone 6s or last year`s iPhone 6 (review FAQs).With the competition offering better price-to-spec ratio and performance, we can`t recommend Sony’s latest offering outright. Don`t get us wrong, the Xperia Z5 is a decent option, just not a compelling one.
My favourites while selection were iphones 6s, galaxy s6 edge, g4, one m9 plus.n nPros:n1) Camera: z5's 23mp produces 100% pure natural colours in daytime. Its photo quality in auto mode is the best for daytime photos. Its wide lens produces very accurate images of objects even 35-40 metres away, as it got lossless image processing tech. I was bit worried the small flash won’t help even a bit for night photography. But Z5 produces marvellous images even in too low light (even in 20% of lighting). I compared my friends 6s, s6 with z5, and both can’t even match to 50% of this phones quality. This phone is the most best for wildlife photography. Took this phone for my friend’s wedding, and a highly reputed photographer from Bangalore who was doing the wedding coverage was amazed at z5’s camera quality after he clicked some pictures. Its 4k recording is beast. Did 10mins of 4k recording with phone getting light warm (not hot). Get some image samples from internet and verify yourself. 10/10n2) Build: Very Premium build. Never compare z5’s build with others. The phone gets warm on heavy usage, because of its tight packaging. It cools off immediately as it got heat pipes and thermal paste applied over processor. 10/10n3) Battery: The phone was discharging very fast after 1st charge. Lasted only one day (may be due to firmware update). On 2nd charge, watched movie for 2.5 hours, listened to music for 4 hours, browsed for around 2 hrs, took around 9-10 snaps with flash and had a talk time of almost 45 mins, But phone had discharged to only 47 %. Battery lasts easily a day even on heavy usage. On slightly above normal usage it lasts 1.5 -2 days. 10/10n4) Colour: I bought graphite black. In image it seems to be dull coloured. But in real, black is awesome. Even gold is awesome. n5) Sound: Phone got dual speaker both at the top and bottom (front of phone). The sound is very crisp and bass effect is good. Due to the speakers, the phone size is bigger.10/10n6) Display: The display is too crisp compared to other phones of same size. And colours are natural (10/10).n7) Performance: Since my first usage, none of the apps ever hanged. Played all high end games, but after playing for around 20mins, the phone gets warm to hot. But it cools down quickly once app is exited. Don’t go with benchmarking as this is a 3gb model. 9/10nnCons:n1) Only while updating phone for the first time, it heats up a lot.n2) Phone gets warm (not hot) on heavy usage.n3) Pricy but not too pricy when taken its feature into consideration. If govt reduces tax the phone might cost less.
Following are my observations/views:n1 Dual sim ( dual sim option is rare in High end phones in India) ( i bought because of this)n2 Premium lookn3 Heats up (it is made airtight for waterproofing) Software updates may improve heating issuesn4 Ringer is not so high. ( in traffic we may miss ringtones) Not an issuen5 Battery lasts for one day only even with 2G network ( may be improved by updates)n6 At software level features are not large as compared to Samsung phones of same leveln7 23 MP camera. (It has G Lens) It is not as great. 16 MP cameras from other phones may have good result over this.n8 It has dual sterio speakers ( top and bottom)n9 Sound quality is good.n10 Finger sensor works great. (at present we can not use app lock that uses finger sensor in this phone) However Android 6 (Marshmallow) will have finger sensor in OS. So third party application will be available n I will update my new experiences soonnnSecond Update:nI have been using Xperia Z5 Dual for the last 9 months:nn1. Marshmallow has opened its finger sensor to many third party applications. ( I am using Lockdown Pro for apps lock)n2. Battery lasts longer now. n3. Ringer loudness is sufficient.n4. Camera quality is also increased.n5 Heating issue is not much.nnAs as whole phone is worth to buy ( price also slashed). It looks quite premium in hand. nI dont like four corners of the phone. These are of polycarbonate. The edges of corners from the back of the phone has given off their golden color.

Sony Xperia Z5 Dual was launched long back in the market. It comes under the category of top range phone as it was launched around Rs 55,000 whereas this Honor 9 Lite is a much cheaper phone coming only at Rs 8500. So it depends upon your budget, how much you are willing to spend. Even if you are spending around 55K, I would personally recommend you to go for OnePlus 7 pro.
