  • Awesome screen

    The Xperia Z5 Premium’s 5.5-inch 4K display is a world first. And if that’s not enough, it has Sony’s TRILUMINOS technology built-in, so colours are much sharper and blacks are deeper.

  • Fingerprint sensor

    Save up to five different prints to unlock the Z5 Premium, and pay for stuff securely online.

  • Game-changing camera

    The improved camera now weighs in at 23MP – making it the best camera Sony has ever produced for a smartphone.

  • Streamlined design

    Bordered by aluminium and featuring slightly more square corners than its predecessor, the Z5 Premium brings a refreshing feel to the Xperia family.

  • Remote Play

    You can use the stunning 4K Z5 Premium screen to play PlayStation 4 games when the console and phone are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

Design and display

Refreshing design

The classic Sony design is back, but with a few little tweaks. It’s now even more minimalist – highlighted by Sony’s aluminium frame, frosted glass back and sandblasted Xperia logo down the side.

World’s first 4K smartphone

Fronting the Z5 Premium is a giant 5.5-inch 4K display with Sony’s quality TRILUMINOS technology built-in. You can enjoy 807 pixels-per-inch, providing unbelievably sharp details, as well as brighter colours.


Wide-angle selfies

Struggling to get everyone in the selfie frame, and wish you had longer arms? Worry no more, with the super wide-angle 5MP front-facing camera.

Level up

Sony has raised the bar once again in the camera department, replacing the long-standing 20.7MP camera with a 23MP model. And at under 0.1-seconds, the Z5 range now has the fastest autofocus on any smartphone camera. 

Under the hood

All day, all night

An impressive 3,600mAh battery keeps the Xperia Z5 Premium going, so it will be ready to go whenever you need it. Quick-charging capabilities are also built-in, so you can recharge faster than ever before. 

Under the hood

With a giant 4K display, you’re going to want to do more stuff at once. An impressive octa-core processor powers the Z5 Premium and will help deal with multitasking and using large apps.

Other features

Fingerprint sensor

The power button has a fingerprint sensor embedded within, allowing you to save up five prints for that extra level of security.

Water and dustproof

Just like its predecessors, the Xperia Z5 Compact is completely water and dustproof, even without a cap over the USB port, and can survive at a depth of 1.5m for up to 30 minutes.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium is rated 4.571428571428571 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 4 out of 5 by robzi from battery shocking The actual phone is great but you need to be prepared to take a charger with you to charge every few hours. I don't use it heavily and I need to charge it 2 to 3 times a day. Other then that the phone is excellent. Picture quality superb and screen resolution unmatched.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DaveA from Do not buy a Sony I've had Sony phones for years and recently had to send my latest one of for a warranty repair. The phone was is water less than a foot deep for under 30 seconds and will now not turn on. The customer service i have received is terrible and Sony will not stand by their warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aaaaa from Experia z5 premium Excellent handset, however a little difficult to hold in one hand due to its size and the back a little slippery. Camera is amazing and 4k video and screen outstanding. Very good at multitasking. Battery OK not brilliant lasts around a day and half which I suppose is reasonable for a large screen phone. Overall happy with the phone and would recommend this handset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blink from Under rated. Everyone goes for Samsung and Apple, but did you know Sony created most of the features on those phones for example, waterproof phone. The tech inside and out was on a Sony phone first. This phone takes everything to the next level. HD is uprated on most videos not to 4k but you definitely notice the difference. I know this as I have a z5 and a z5 premium. Photos are as good, if not better then most point and click camera. All in all this phones a powerhouse. I use some chunky software for work and every phone I've had, has lagged terribly in the past but this phone is smooth.
