Sony might have struck gold when it announced the Xperia Z5 Premium, the world's first ever 4K smartphone, which also makes it the world's smallest 4K display, However, that adage about not judging books by covers might very well apply to screen resolutions as well.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium hands-on with 4K display

Today we're having a look at the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium with 4K display, deciding whether or not it makes sense to go this far with sharpness on a mobile display. This device has a 5.5-inch display panel, meaning you'll have 806 pixels per inch - far more than is discernible by the human eye.
