Xperia Z5 Premium Features 4K Resolution on Few Apps Only

It was with great fanfare that the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium was announced last week as the very first smartphone with a 4K resolution display. However, sadly, the 2160 x 3840 resolution can only be used for a restricted number of applications. For the rest, the smartphone features a display with 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution only.

Evidence of this was spotted on the GFXBench site where the phone is recorded as having a FHD display. Based on a report published today, the 4K display would only work for pictures and videos. When playing games, the display reverts back to a Full HD resolution.

During the performance check of 3D Graphics, it was also revealed that the Xperia Z5 Premium runs at a reduced frame rate than its siblings. The Xperia Z5 Compact appears to have a top-notch 3D Graphics performance, running at 37.8fps during the Manhattan Evaluation. Meanwhile, the Xperia Z5 ran at 18.8fps and the Xperia Z5 Premium  at 18.7fps.
