The highlight of the new flagship smartphone from Sony is the improved camera. The Sony Xperia Z5 features a brand new 1/2.3 Exmor RS for mobile 23-megapixel sensor and F/2.0 G lens. Sony at the launch had claimed to have designed the camera inside its new flagship using the same technology that’s seen in its Alpha range of interchangeable lens cameras.

The devices were first unveiled along with the Xperia Z5 Concept at the IFA Berlin last month.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium, on the other hand, is the ‘world’s first smartphone featuring a 4K display’ as touted by the company. It comes with a resolution of 2160×3840 pixels and an impressive pixel density of 806ppi. Images are captured on the Xperia Z5 Premium are quick and look sharp, thanks to the 4k display. The in-body image stabilization that we were able to test also looks fantastic.

    Hi,

    I am going to purchase a smartphone but I am confused among the two i.e. Sony Xperia C4 and HTC desire 826. These two have nearly the same specification and cost. But I request you to please suggest me the one which would be better as per my requirements which are-

    I am a heavy internet user and multitasker but do not play any game.

    I use to talk around an hour daily on mobile and wish to install enough apps and to run some of them simultaneously without any lag or hanging problem.

    I am an average user of camera and use occasionally.

    If there is other mobile phone besides these two which suits my requirements the best then please tell me.

    Hoping for a reply soon.

    Thanks in advance
