Once you’ve flashed TWRP, you’re good to go and you can install, wipe or backup any custom ROM you want. In addition to that, TWRP provides a whole suite of extra and useful features which include a built-in file manager too.

The Xperia Z5 Premium was already an overkill device from Sony when it launched with a massive 4K display back in 2015. With today’s custom ROMs you could add in a few interesting tweaks to play around with the display. But other than that, the device itself presents solid hardware so there’s still a lot to be gained.
