Measuring 5.5in diagonally, the screen has a whopping 3840x2160 pixels, which is far more than most TVs and monitors - especially ones found in most offices - and results in a staggering pixel density of 801ppi. However, the catch is that the screen only...

The Sony Z5 Premium has taken some time to get here. Unlike its smaller Xperia brethren, which arrived in South Africa last year, the 5.5" Premium only landed more recently. As such, it's going up against some tough competition, with the Galaxy S7 edge (review) and LG G5 (review) already setting a high standard for Android devices.

Rewind to the end of 2014 and the start of 2015, and Sony 's Xperia Z3 found much favour with us at Ausdroid. The standard “full size” unit was a firm favourite with Chris, and the Z3 Compact found itself my phone of choice for several months. Both phones...
