The Sony Xperia Z5 is basically a smaller version of the Xperia Z5, with a more handy 4.6-inch screen. But it holds the same features of the slightly larger Sony Xperia Z5, so all of its highlight specs are almost exactly the same.

The Xperia Z5 Premium, Xperia Z5 Compact, and Xperia Z5 all come with IP68 dust and water protection that will ensure that they all last for as long as the batteries keep running. Provided that the various hardware and mechanical parts don’t get damaged of course. But we’re digressing.

Tokyo Game Show Special Coverage

Tokyo Game Show 2018

41711344 10155988194573337 3113579199126831104 o - We are going to Tokyo Game Show 2018

Witness this year’s biggest gaming convention in Asia, the Tokyo Game Show 2018. This September 19, our team will fly to Tokyo, Japan, to be part to TGS 2018. Special thanks to our brand partners Huawei Mobile, PLDT Home, Smart Communications and Cherry Mobile for making this coverage possible.

If the line on the demo is any indication, Biohazard RE: 2 is one of the most popular games in TGS 2018. It’s one of those games that, regardless of the time of day, the queue to the booth just won’t go shorter than 60 minutes. We decided to hold off trying our luck on the demo, maybe tomorrow’s line would be shorter.

Demo or no demo, it’s still worth mentioning that the game, even in pictures is just a sight to behold. CAPCOM gave us access to screenshots of the game, and my goodness, what a fresh  coat of paint the game has over the 1998 Playstation and Nintendo 64 classic.

Check them out and drool.
