Every smartphone comes with its own features and specifications that would either suit or disappoint others. Some look for larger screens, while others want more storage. Sony’s Xperia Z5 and Samsung S6 Galaxy Edge Plus are both high-end smartphones with almost the same specifications. Listed below are the differences between these two smartphones from the well-known manufacturing giants.
5.2-inch screen, 1080 X 1920 pixels
23 mp rear camera, 5.1 mp front camera
Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
Qualcomm Snapdragon 810
Internal: 32GB, 3GB RAM
2900 mAh non-removable Li-Ion battery
Galaxy S6 Edge Plus
5.5-inch screen, 1080 X 1920 pixels
16 mp rear camera, 5 megapixel front camera
Internal: 32GB, 4GB RAM
3000 mAh non-removable Li-Po battery
Sony Xperia Z5 gets an extra point for being waterproof. But when it comes to thinness, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus wins. Now the point is, when it comes to buying a phone, the features make more difference than the size. Even when it comes to display, Xperia Z5’s screen is smaller than that of the Samsung S6 Edge Plus, but the output is sharper and crisp.
Today, the world focuses more on cameras and picture quality as no one likes to share distorted or unclear images with friends and family on social media. The better the camera, the higher the chances of a smartphone getting sold. Here again, Sony’s Xperia wins. That does not mean that Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus’ camera is of poor quality. It also doesn’t mean you should choose to ignore it if you are going for a camera phone. But yes, being in the same price range, every buyer would like to compare and pick the best instead of trying to save a few pennies. So Z5’s 23 megapixel rear camera definitely impresses the photo crazy crowd.
Again, we have mentioned in our earlier stories as well that Samsung still has buyers because of its microSD slot, which Apple does not offer. Trying to be another Apple and giving up on the microSD card is going to cost the company a lot. Though it offers two memory choices – 32Gb and 64GB internal memory – people still prefer microSD cards as they are more convenient to use. And Xperia Z5 offers you what Galaxy S6 Edge Plus does not.
We would say that considering the pros and cons points of both devices, one should not hesitate to invest into Sony’s Xperia Z5.
