It sure took a while for the Sony Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact to get here, but the wait is finally over. Sony has finally released its latest flagships in the USA and shipments have begun just in time, keeping its promise for a February 7th release date.

Thinking of buying yourself a new smartphone? Both Sony handsets are available from Amazon, so let’s refresh your memories and see if one of these is worth your hard-earned cash.

Sony Xperia Z5

Even if Sony is not doing great, their high-end smartphones rank pretty high in my personal list of favorite handsets. The Sony Xperia Z5 has everything you can ask for from a flagship device.

Packed inside is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, 23MP/5MP cameras and a 2900 mAh battery. It also features a 5.2-inch 1080p display that keeps things simple and the phone manageable.

It’s a great phone, but don’t let me tell you that. Just go ahead and read our full review to learn all the details!

Sony Xperia Z5 Compact

Not that the Xperia Z5 is very large, but some people do prefer even smaller phones. Those of you who fall under this category can grab the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact.

The screen measures in at 4.6 inches. But the best part about this phone is that though it’s small, Sony didn’t have to sacrifice too much. It still rocks a Snapdragon 810 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 23MP/5MP cameras and a 2700 mAh battery.

Are you buying?

So, how many of you are actually planning to buy one of these? The Sony Xperia Z5 goes for $599.99, while the compact version costs $100 less. They are both now available in black, but a gold Z5 and coral Z5 Compact will be available in 2-5 weeks (I guess we get no pink version!).

This is an important move for Sony. Some may say it’s too little too late; others will think it’s better late than never. What do you think?
