That video quality fills me full of confidence for the stills quality.
I'll be waiting to see what the N5 2015 is like, but this looks as a good contender for me. Probably the midrange one.
Same here. Though the more I see of the N5 the more I think I'll be getting a Z5, or Z5C.
Stabilisation is really nice
This will be my next phone, going to have to get it on contract with 3!
Good looking phone, would prefer it a bit slimmer though
Each to their own. I prefer fatter with better life and such. Found my old iphone 6 too thin.
I don't want to take my phone into a swimming pool but being able to answer it in the rain and not worry is something I miss from my z3.
The focus speed the camera should save a lot more blurry pics that ois and there steady shot looks to work ok.
Yep, okay its kinda cool to know you could use your phone under water but I can't imagine I ever would, where as the amount of times I've been trying to use a phone while out in the rain are numerous!
I've always used my phones in the rain and have never had a waterproof phone. Nothing happens with a bit of rainwater, unless you tunel it inside the phone in big amounts.
Looking at the first impression shots shown earlier in the week, I still worry about the low-light performance compared to the S6 or iPhone, which is surely more important in the majority of situations.
Don't get me wrong, it's far from poor, but it doesn't look to be a massive improvement on the Z3 in that regard so far.
The outdoor shots and video (including indoor) look immense though.
The S6 uses Sonys previous top end phone sensor, this is apparently their new and improved sensor which they are keeping to themselves for a bit.
We'll see, when are reviews due do we know yet?
But the f-stop is lower on the Samsung which at face value should mean better low light performance than the z5
Plus OIS on the S6 which I believe the Z5 doesn't have?
f/1.9 vs. f/2 makes absolutely zero difference. Plus the Z5 has a physically larger sensor (1/2.3" vs. 1/2.6")
Doubting myself now whether to get the Z5 or take a step back in screen size from my s6 and get the compact..........
im in the same boat. The natural upgrade would be to go for the z5. But that compact just screams out to me. Unsure if they both have the same size battery or not. Battery life will be priority for me.
The compact has a slightly smaller battery, but it should use less power so should last just as long. It was the same situation with the Z3 and the compact certainly didn't suffer as a result.
I'm also in this boat, coming from a Nexus 4 and not sure if I want something larger or not.
Other than the size/build factor/ram the only discernible differences I can see is that the compact only has 1 wifi antenna where the 5/5p have two.
The Z5C is a superb alternative if you don't want a bigger sized phone.
I keep changing my mind - ordered the Gold Z5 but having seen the graphite black in various videos and how it changes colour I want to go for the graphite black version instead.
