Vote for your favourite Sony Xperia of 2015

by XB on 29th December 2015

in Featured Content


Sony Xperia Z5 familySony Mobile released eleven different Xperia devices during 2015 (not including their dual SIM counterparts). The flagship highlight of the year was the Xperia Z5 series, with the Xperia Z3+/Z4 pretty much a token offering outside of Japan. The Xperia Z5 models received solid reviews, particularly around the new camera and fingerprint sensor.

Sony’s main global mid-range model was the Xperia M4 Aqua, with the M5 launching selectively in the second half of the year. For selfie fans, Sony had the Xperia C4 and C5 Ultra with larger displays and front-facing flash.

Sony Mobile’s entry level models were focused on the Xperia E4 and E4g that were released early in the year, but we saw no new budget models appear in 2015. Sony has said a number of times it will focus on the premium segment, so it will be interesting to see where this leaves the entry/mid ranges next year.

On the tablet front, Sony only released one model in 2015 – the Xperia Z4 Tablet, but it remains one of the best Android tablets released this year in our view. Combining it with the BKB50 Bluetooth Keyboard only enhances the experience.

Anyway, it’s over to you. We want to know, which Sony Xperia device was your pick of 2015? Feel free to let us know your reasons in the comments below.

    I know most people will vote z5 premium but z4 tablet remains the best tablet in the market since the release until this end of the year. Most manufacturer compromise the spec for price like no sd card slot or lower battery life.

  • Waiyan Ag

    Xperia Z5 premium is the best phone in the world. i guess

  • Naresh Gundu

    Z5 ultra seriously? When was that launched?

  • David Hvatov

    Voted for Z5 Premium, but my favourite of all time is Z2.

  • fluxx

    I’m still sticking to my Z2. With each new generation of Xperia Z models I hope they deliver something that really pushes me to replace the Z2 but every generation has it’s ups and downs. Really like the new Z5 and gave my vote for it, but I am still not sure if the camera is such an improvement over the Z2.

  • Makiz

    Agree! ;)

  • Tsoa Tsyfatatra

    Z5 premium with it’s 4K display… Doesn’t matter if the phone renders 4K only within the album app.

  • Stefano

    Z3 Compact even this year…

  • Skipper

    Are U joking about camera, don’t you?

  • ChilliPSco

    Voted for anything other than the Z5. I cannot vote for a handset that produces image blur on such horrendous levels!

  • Svnjay

    Xperia Z3+

  • Alex Norris

    New Z5 – it just an improved version of Z2

  • Paul

    I’ll say the Z5 Premium as it’s a fantastic phone. The camera is better by than my Z2’s and the screen is fantastic.

  • DODO1515

    Z2 is the best!!have a Z5 premium now but so dissapointed with THE CAMERA LEFT BLUR ISSUE!!NOT A WORD FROM SONY REGARDING THIS ISSUE..

  • Alex Norris

    Honestly, Xperia Z5 not impressed, except scanner we not see nothing new…
    IMHO, best Xperia device of 2015 it`s Xperia M5

  • iia3ezu

    One possible reason why Xperia phones is not selling well is because folks like you keep holding onto your older Xperia phones and refusing to upgrade.

    At the same time, you whine and complain that you’re not getting newer versions of Android.

    The Z2 camera is crap, but feel free to stick with it if it makes you happy, chump.

  • iia3ezu

    Sony should stop making low end phones: China brand phones have that market sewn up, no one will buy a cheap phone based on the Sony brand alone.

    Focus on the Z series phones.

  • adibuyono

    Well.. there is typo in this article which is written as z5 ultra which suppose to be c5 ultra xD
    “Sony’s main global mid-range model was the Xperia M4 Aqua, with the M5 launching selectively in the second half of the year. For selfie fans, Sony had the Xperia C4 and
    Z5 Ultra
    with larger displays and front-facing flash”

  • hansip

    Z5 Premium does grab the headline and i voted for it, but to be honest, the price should come down sooner than later.

    PS: i’ve tried the M5 and the funny thing is, i though the result of the camera is slightly better than Z5 imo. more sharper and less artifact.. Anyone agree?

  • adibuyono

    I prefer sony to place the C series which always using a mediatek as their low end device to fight against china
    The price must be as low as those china great phone I.e xiaomi redmi note 3 and with a same spec with them

  • DanielGearSolid

    just got the z5 in the mail today…

    This thing is beautiful

    like original xperia z beautiful

  • Marius Badin

    Z5 Premium is the best.

  • karam abi karam

    Z2 is the better sony smartphone till now. Best phone in battery better than z3 and better body than other xperia. Not heating

  • Wilhelm-Bernhard Trometer

    I have the Z5 Premium since almost 6 weeks i call alot send messages taking pictures surfing the webb and use the phone at work i must really say that it an excellent phone no matter what i do and batterylife is also pretty good so my vote goes too Z5 Premium of course the price is very high rigth now but if you see what the note 5 or s6 edge+ or even iphone 6s cost then i would say that the Z5 premium is worth it and Z5 Premium has support for micro sd up 200 gigs iphone samsung highend phone dont have that so Z5 Premium all the way

  • Alvin

    z3 for me..

  • Z5P

  • Ulysses Grant

    We’re not iPhone fanboys who would keep on upgrading because the last one stopped working. Why spend money if the phone is still working great?

  • Nuno

    As an owner of all the Z line phones i would have to say that the Xperia Z5 Premium is the best handset of 2015. It brings features that other flagships cant match (4K, SD card storage up to 200GB, the best camera in the world) and if you consider its design with the inclusion of the water resistance and the lack of a bump in the rear for its main camera (Note 5) i would say that it is the real flagship for 2015. I also own the Xperia Z4 Tablet and have to say that its display is amazing, its very thin and easy to use, also think that it is one of the best tablets out today.

  • Matt

    And z3, z3+ also improvement from z2, duh -_-

  • Ashroft

    DID HE JUST SAID XPERIA Z5 ULTRA???

  • DrKrFfXx

    Never go full retard.

  • DrKrFfXx

    At that price, I rather have an x64 device. Even the lowest powered i3 or something, would stomp the overrated 810.

  • DrKrFfXx

    I feel this has been a bad year for mobile devices.

    I see and feel no leap forward in performance, even less in battery life vs the two year old SD801.

    I think the M5 gets my vote, as it is nicely built, and decently priced.

  • 21187

    Z5C is the best all around Xperia

  • DrKrFfXx

    Camera left blur? Never heard of that.

  • Allan O. Mancera

    The best model by all means is the Xperia Z5 Premium. Smooth running with a great battery performance, the camera is awesome and the screen is beyond any word I could think off. My Xperia Z1 is still working as good as new, great camera, really smooth to work with, all time favourites both of them.
    Thank you Sony for those great devices.

  • Utsav Shah

    For me it’s Z3. A timeless design. I really mean a timeless design.

  • laci_csk

    Z5 Premium of course.

  • HAWX

    -Except for the Z3+, these years’ mobile phones are good from Sony :)

    -Z5 line is meh except for the Z5 Compact. Z5 and Z5P are not good devices with dat 810, and entering the market after Galaxy S6, htc M9 and LG G4 price drops and offering only questionable waterproofnes and a bit more battery? Sorry but that’s a big no with these prices man. I’m sad because they could be succesful if the phones were launched with the S6 series. However Z5 compact is a solid choice for even iPhone users with somewhat better price.

    -Xperia M5 is a really good midranger with somewhat good price. The phone has quite good potential and it works. Most midrangers are for like tricking people with low knowledge, but not M5. But Sony still has strong competitors like Oneplus, huawei etc..

    -C5 Ultra is quite good with it’s reasonable price. AND these side bezels are thin man. The screen looks like its floting in the air. Hoping same for Z6 series..

    -E4 and E4g is nice devices. Samsung offers quite worse phones at the same price.Some people complain about some bugs that aren’t fixed in E4 and E4g, but it’s the general problem with Sony devices..

  • HAWX

    Dude do you still have Z5 :) And did Sony said something official to that problem :)

  • Stanley08

    I used a Z2 now using a Z3. Battery on Z3 is better. Smaller, but better.

  • ChilliPSco

    Aye, still got it. Still waiting on reply from Sony. Gave them 28 days which will be a little bit longer due to Christmas. Also got my mobile network involved too. Should expect an official response within next 14 days. I’ll let you know as soon as I hear anything.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    I’m going to vote the Xperia z4 tablet. One of the best tablets I have ever tried and just perfect for my needs since I watch a lot of movies, TV series and YouTube/Netflix on my tablet :)

  • Emil Oskarsson

    The Xperia z2 camera is still an awesome performer. Delivering great low light shots and awesome detailed photos in normal light conditions!

  • HAWX

    :) Thanks man. I hope you’ll get a flawless replacement. But I still balme Sony saying nothing regarding that problem. They did similar thing on Lollipop battery drain issue which makes your phone quite worse.
    Z5 series blur issues are a bit annoying, but I think the wide angle lens is really good both on front and rear camera. You are seeing larger area :) It’s really good for capturing notes, or taking group pictures. The situation was opposite in the Z to Z3+ :)

  • sahil khan

    I love the sony Xperia m4 aqua but feeling better when not available marshmallow 6.0 because this android version 6.0 is important to increase the strength of sony mobile phone.

  • Paul M

    I would vote for the z5 ultra but it’s just a rumour

  • Pokance

    Z3 Compact’s still my favourite of all time. However M4 Aqua is a great mid-renge device this year, or is it called SUPER MID-RANGE? Amazing.

  • NamiDragneel

    i have z2 and just have bought z5 dual…this 2 device have great perfomance for me.. but the first device which was sent to sony service centre is z5..the screen have white spot on middle..T___T..

  • Luís Alberto Pérez

    Me too!

  • goldenblls

    The Z3C has to be a Sony classic. There is simply no other phone like it. The M4 Aqua is also a great proposition..

  • ack

    Really enjoying taking videos with the Z5. Not having to worry about shaky videos is such a cool innovation. :D

  • jamie evans

    I vote for Z5 Compact, but my favorite of all time is Z3 Compact which triggered in me to become a huge fun of Xperia. Still, Xperia phones are not selling well. It’s time for Sony Mobile to make a drastical change in everything. Especially they have to improve the camera and change the omni_balance design.

  • DODO1515

    Do some search on xda or Sony support..
    most z5 are affected by this issue, z5, z5c,z5p..

  • Little Man

    The Z5 camera for solid reviews… SURE.

  • ben bleho

    I’m still using the z1c with latest 14.6.A.1.236 and like it very much. The later compacts z3c and z5c are no alternatives to me – plastic frames: no go. Even if displays and speed became better, the z3c looks a little cheap and the z5c is a fatty. I’m looking forward to the next compact.

  • Saikrishna

    Voted for Z5 premium but my daily driver is M4 aqua. Dont have the budget to buy Z5 premium.

  • Alfred Abraham

    Voted for Z5 Premium but selling it and moving to iPhone. 8 years with Sony comes to an end! :'( I’d blame android software.

  • My favorite all time until the next one is the Z3…

  • TimmY

    I’ve upgraded from Z3C to Z5. I’m happy with the phone so far and my vote goes to Z5.

  • roeshak

    As far as I’m concerned, they’re all 6 or one half a dozen of the other. A vote for one is a vote for all so I voted neither lol

  • DrKrFfXx

    I have a Premium, my pics are looking just fine.

  • Battal

    None !

  • El Capitan Morgan

    I like Xperia Z5 but I am still using my Z2 because it still works very well. No need to upgrade like what fanboys do every year.

  • DODO1515

    You’re lucky bro, l have both a z5 and a z5 premium,unfortunately both a affected,when l take a pic in 16:9 either 8mp or 16 mp in landscape, l got all the pic sharp but only the left edges is blurry..it more noticeable with an outdoor scene with lots of details..of trees.. ect..

  • Chew Loh Seng

    Xperia Z5 family takes up 81% of market share of the votes, wow! Including Z4 family (Z3+/Z4T) about 87% market share, is there even much competition?

    This year is different uh, especially compared to 2013. Much more percentage for midrangers, especially Xperia SP (which I still own but rarely use hehe).

    Saying this as of 1:30pm GMT+8, 31 Dec 2015!

  • Ailan Hidaz

    Z5 family hands down, but also the M5 because of that amazing camera and processor. Loving my M5 (and Z5).

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    It’s not crap, It’s decent but Sony Z5 camera is amazing but poor camera software. Hope to see if it’ll be fixed in future updates and flagship models.

  • Ailan Hidaz

    Agreed, M5 is amazing (best battery i’ve seen on an Xperia) and the C5 ultra is actually a very capable all round phone.
    E4 I’m not too sure though…

  • Ailan Hidaz

    Totally agreed – the under dog of this year, yet the best price and specs you can get! Nothing from the competition comes close…

  • Ailan Hidaz

    Ummm I have a z5, z5c and Z5p in the family, none have that issue…?

  • DODO1515

    may be you’re lucky but l’m septic,will suggest you to make some test…
    most of them are affected..tried to read sonyforumz5..there are specific test to be done..

  • SONY only

    ..

  • Hoyz

    I agree with you about M5 and C5 Ultra (my girlfriend has this phone and its screen is gorgeous, really. It’s a bit slower than my Z3C but I think MM could improve its reactivity). Z5 series is good, I think Z5 premium it’s really a good phone and one of the few 2015’s phone better than 2014. On the other hand Z5 Compact doesn’t improve anything compared to Z3C, Z5 too. E4g is a really good low end phone, E4 no.

  • Sweggity

    I am still using Z2. The best Sony phone ever made. Damn I remember back 2014 I was shocked how perfect a phone can be? The only smartphone to score awesome rating by pocketnow. Z2 FTW!

  • Ryuzaki Raiga

    those affected because of different display panel brand, sony tend to use different display on xperia phones

  • DODO1515

    Nothing to do with panel brand,it’s because the misalignment of lenses.

  • Z5 for its really balanced hardware. Horrible terrible insanely bad display though ?

  • Ailan Hidaz

    You are septic? As in you are infected?
    Also no, I have run the tests you are referring to, none of them are affected. So perhaps it’s not affecting all z5 phones in the world.

  • DODO1515

    May be you’re blind! Lol! Also l never said all the phones are affected, but most of them..
    Prove me wrong,post some photos, untouched full resolution16:9 20mp, landscape day with lot of trees and details to your left.l’m sure one of your z5 are affected..

  • Tsang Ka Man

    vote Z5 ~ favorite is Z2 ~ :D

  • Viktor Németh

    The Xperia Z3 is the best when comes to design. Much prettier than the Z5 in my opinion.

  • Major Sceptic

    Totally agree, I have a note 4, and feel no inclination to buy something else,
    my 2014 device still does the job nicely, just not quite as quick as the latest models, a few seconds here or there, who cares.

  • Major Sceptic

    I give the Z3+ a vote, I’ve used my brothers z3+ a go and it seems to do everything nicely other than being a bit slippery in hand,
    the Z5 premium seems a bit of a waste with the super Hi res when it’s really only part time.

  • (C):stem

    None of the list. Xperia Z3 compact was the best of 2014 and 2015.

  • Christian Sakal

    Hoping for the camera2 api so we can shoot RAW

  • Christian Sakal

    You’ll be back when you realise how many things you can no longer do

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Very true. Hoping to see Camera2 Api

  • Timel

    Z5 Premium which is the best of Sony in 2015 but still can’t beat Apple and Samsung’re 2015 flagships anyway

    – Sony Z5 Premium still stuck with The shitty camera, horrible auto mode, inefficient manual mode
    – Display with useless resolution and really bad color accuracy
    – ugly and boring ui, And the current Xperia UI is lack of smooth animations, the current Xperia UI can’t beat iOS9, EMUI 4.0, the new TouchWiz UX and MIUI 7 in terms of fluency
    – Z5 Premium is gorgeous but boring, omnibalance is very boring and outdated
    – Sd810 chipset is much worse and has nothing can beat Exynos and Apple A9

  • David Gattenberg

    My Z3 Compact sim free UK is still king ! its getting updates… eventually , and it works .. no reason to update yet , bar the fingerprint scanner . When NFC payment works in the UK then maybe i will move .

  • SONY only

    samsung sucks

  • Alvin

    The ugly piece of **** design that is just “renewed” with ‘new’ materials That looks okay but not good nor great. I’m talking about note 5

  • Timel

    Samsung is much better and bigger than Sony now

    If Samsung sucks then Sony is much worse.

  • Timel

    Note 5 is the most advanced smartphone so far and it packed with many useful features and it can kills the whole Z5 family easily , at least Note 5 camera makes Z5 camera became just like a cheap shitty toy.

  • Christian Hell

    Hi, loved Z, Z1 and have Z3 … but I’ll skip Z5, sharp edges ruined what could have been a great succesor, will stick with Z3 and vote it as best
