Here’s what we love most about the slick new Sony Xperia Z5.
1. An incredible camera
With its 23MP camera, the Z5 is at the zenith of smartphone camera innovation. And its high resolution is not the only feature that sets the camera apart from its competitors.
It’s also got a super-fast auto focus – it takes about 0.03 seconds to autofocus accurately, thanks to the combination of two different technologies. This technology comes from the Alpha Series of Sony cameras.
The zoom is razor sharp, getting you five times closer to your subject without losing picture quality.
And Sony’s best low-light technology comes out to play in the Xperia Z5. The next-generation Sony image sensor allows you to capture night scenes perfectly, with no noise or blur.
2. Waterproof design
Just because it's beautiful doesn't mean that the Z5 can't stand up to a little everyday wear and tear – and even drops of rain. You can rest assured that, with its dust-tight and waterproof design, the Z5 does not need to be wrapped in cotton wool while you're out and about.
3. Unique look and feel
The metal frame of the Z5 is precision engraved with a luxurious feel. The shape is smooth and simplified, and the frosted glass back is cool to the touch. Colours available through Vodacom Online include green, granite black, and white.
4. Battery life
Get up to two days of battery life from a single charge. And if you do run low, the Z5’s Quick Charge capabilities give you a full day’s power after just 45 minutes of charging.
5. Fingerprint sensor
This is the phone that knows it’s you – the power button on the side of the phone carries an integrated fingerprint sensor, so you can unlock instantly and securely.
If you use your phone to listen to music and watch videos, you’ll be thrilled to know that the Z5 has 3D stereo sound and is compatible with Sony’s latest headphones (which you’ll need to purchase separately).
