After treading water for several years, Sony decided to do some innovating and at IFA earlier this month the company launched the Xperia Z5 Premium. That handset was the first to arrive with a 4K screen that boasts a stunning 2160 x 3840 resolution and 800+ ppi. To put that in perspective, the nearest rival is the Samsung Galaxy S6 with a 577ppi pixel density.

However, it now seems apparent that the screen of the Xperia Z5 Premium does not always run with 4K resolution. Indeed, the ultra HD will be saved for viewing media, such as video, photos, and web browsing, with the device reverting back to 1080p for simply navigation around the Android interface. 4K may be used for wallpapers too, but for normal phone tasks it will be good old Full HD.

That actually makes plenty of sense as it will allow the Xperia Z5 Premium to have Sony's usual stellar battery performance, 2 days in fact.

Xperia Z5 Premium features a 4K display with a resolution of 3840x2160 pixels based on SID Standard and enables all video and image content to be enjoyed in 4K resolution. All other content is displayed at 1080P or lower resolution in order to optimize the performance and battery stamina for this device, ensuring you can enjoy the 4K resolution when you need it most.
