We’re dealing with a 5.2 inch smartphone with Full HD resolution, a Snapdragon 810 CPU inside and 3 GB of RAM. We also get 32 GB of storage and a water and dust proof body.

We’re already at Marshmallow, since the device got updated right after the unboxing was done, so we’ve got exciting stuff for the review. Xperia Z5 brings a 2900 mAh battery and a 23 megapixel main camera, with hybrid autofocus, up to 8X digital zoom and 4K video capture. It weighs 154 grams, measures 7.3 mm in thickness and packs a 5 MP selfie camera, as well as a fingerprint scanner embedded within the side Power button.
