Sony's Xperia Z5 is available only on Bell

Sony's latest offering for the Xperia line up, the Z5 is available as a Bell exclusive (it seems either they have a great relationship with Bell, or is it the other carriers are afraid?) and will be ready for next Thursday, October 29

The phone packs quite a punch and is available at $650 outright or $200 on a plan.

What does it bring to the table?

5.2" @ 1080p
Snapdragon 810 octacore
2.5GHz x4 + 1.5GHz x4
32GB storage + microSD
23MP / 5MP
Android 5.1

Not a bad deal.  Are you interested in one?  That fingerprint sensor in the side power is definitely interesting.  I'm more of an LG fan, with the V10 having it on the back... but that's just me.  Noticed they really didn't hype up the IP rating this time around.
