Mmm, it’s still so shiny. Oh, now it’s not. Curse our greasy-fingered lust for lovely-looking tech.
Proving that time doth little to tarnish the sleek lines of an Xperia, in the two months since we first got our hands on a Z5 Premium we haven’t tired of its pointlessly reflective rear and utterly excessive 4K screen resolution.
OK, enough of the Yoda speak – that gleaming back got us coming over all reflective. Sorry.
The mobile network made for the masses has revealed to TechRadar that it’ll be offering Sony’s high-end flagship for £599 SIM-free, with goodybag deals (or contracts, to the rest of us) from £26.29 a month and a £25 up-front payment.
With no word yet on whether Sony plans to stock the super shiner officially in its store, this could be the fastest (and, indeed, the only) route to a polished Premium.
It isn’t the best flagship out there, and, at that price, it’s fighting in Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6s territory – but, if you’re after a handset that few will be holding and you really (do you, though?) need 4K on a phone, the Premium is the place to look.
Go forth, mobile magpies, to Giffgaff.
