I actually have this phone, and it is amazing! Nice big vivid screen, stylish gorgeous looks that make you want to double take. Gives you a really good quality premium feel for a phone. Sound clarity is top notch and can increase to decent listening levels coming from a true audiophile, Words of advice protect this phone from front to back because it’s made of glass, but I love this phone and highly recommend it if you have the extra money to throw at it!

Switched from iPhone’s iOS to Android and thought I’d try Sony’s Z5, best decision ever! The phone arrived in 2 business days, put on the extra screen protector and an ultra-thin case (both purchased through Amazon), switched my SIM card over and it worked right out of the box. I noticed later that I wasn’t able to setup Exchange mail for my work and the solution was to take it in to my carrier i.e. TMobile and have them enter their setup/configuration in the phone and this fixed all other lingering issues (as far as communication is concerned). The resolution on this thing is out of this world (I didn’t realize it had a 4K screen until colleagues and friends who looked at the display marveled at the sharp and crisp display).

I’m still getting used to Android 5.0 though (6 is not available for this phone yet, but soon is the rumor). I haven’t found a push to talk button, but installed Dragon and it somewhat works like Siri.

Putting the 4K feature aside the phone is a huge improvement from the Xperia Z3. It’s far more responsive, camera is greatly improved. Also Don’t has finally decided to get rid of the port covers except for the one where the SIM and microSDcard go in but that isn’t an issue because it won’t ever be opened. I can’t say anything about the 4K screen because there isn’t much content but that wasn’t why I bought the phone.

So far, the phone is a beast, worth every penny. The charger though takes forever to charger, I purchased an additional Sony charger on Amazon: OEM Sony Micro USB Charger (EP880+EC803) and this charges the phone much faster so maybe the Z5 shipped with a cheaper charger, I don’t know.

Anyway, I’m happy with this phone and purchased additional memory in case I need it.
