The Xperia Z5 has continued to live up to that tradition as it boasts an all-new 23MP shooter.

With a camera that’s pixel heavy and a processor that’s unparalleled in terms of processing speed, UHD (2160p) video recording has become possible.
The fingerprint sensor has become a thing nowadays, and finally, Sony has brought this state of the art technology into their smartphone.
