A compact phone indeed.

The Xperia Z5 is the best phone Sony has ever produced and it's up there as one of the best Android phones on the market right now.

From a pure numbers perspective, it’s dead impressive.

There are some other old 6-inch devices still available in the market that you could consider, though none of them can be seen as directly competing with the Xperia C5 Ultra Dual, which is a fantastic phone with a lot to love if you don't mind its price tag.
