My contract for my old Samsung Galaxy S4 ran out in September and I was hit with the dilemma of what phone to go for. I’ve never been an Iphone girl despite loving and owning multiple other Apple products. It used to be because I loved being able to take out a battery and have spares if mine ever ran out but with most phones being sealed now this wasn’t an argument. I’m just so used to Android phones and I love them, over the years I’ve had HTC, Sony, Samsung and more but this time I was stumped.
Phones do so much now that all the features I want are available on all the phones and what makes them different is so minimal. That was until I found out the spec for the Sony Xperia Z5 which came out in October. The phone itself looked great style wise and functionality wise, but it was the camera which swayed it for me: a whopping 23 mega pixels! That’s pretty much SLR quality there in your hand.
Naturally I made my decision from this and ordered the phone because it wasn’t yet in shops and I have never looked back. Sometimes I don’t want to lug a camera around or my bag is just too small for one and this phone covers the bases. When I went to Copenhagen I used this as much as my digital camera and got the same quality photos, some of the photos on the very blog have been taken by my Xperia. The images are sharp, it works really well without a flash/ in low lighting and has a decent zoom which doesn’t blur photos.
The phone itself is a little bigger than my S4 but it’s flatter which almost makes up for it, but from both a blogging point of view and a personal point of view the camera makes all the difference. If you’re looking for a new phone I definitely recommend giving this a try out.
