Sony Xperia 5 II Review | Trusted Reviews

 

The Xperia 5 II aims to take the features of its flagship sibling, the 1 II to a more affordable price point, but how does it compete with the competition?

Small form factor design;Decent screen;Solid performance;Decent portfolio of entertainment and gaming features

Expensive when compared to rivals;Focus and shutter speeds a little slow

Sony Xperia 5 II review

 

Sony's latest Xperia smartphone delivers premium audio and video performance

Impressive Full HD video ; Impressive sound ; Smart design

4K video lacks detail

A talented phone for music and movies, and well worth considering if you want a smaller or cheaper alternative to the Award-winning Xperia 1 II

Sony Xperia 5 II review

 

Sony's latest smaller handset is arguably its best phone in years, despite not being its top-end handset.

Easy-to-use design Great cameras 120Hz screen looks great

Annoying Google Assistant button Still quite a high price Antiquated unlock button

The Sony Xperia 5 II takes a lot of what makes its larger sibling great and distills it into a package that’s much smaller and easier to hold. If you’re looking for near top-end tech in an easier-to-hold phone, you’ll struggle to go wrong with the...

Hands on: Sony Xperia 5 II review

 

Sony's latest smaller handset may be its best phone in years despite not being its top-end handset.

Attractive look Great cameras

Annoying Google Assistant button No wireless charging

The Sony Xperia 5 II takes a lot of what makes its larger sibling great and distills it into a package that’s much smaller and easier to hold. So if you’re looking for this top-end tech in an easier to hold phone, you’ll struggle to go wrong with the...

Sony Xperia 5 II review: The star of the Xperia line-up

 

A compact flagship phone that's actually worth having. If you want a small and mighty Android handset then this could be the best available in 2020.

Great display ; Good build quality ; Power and performance ; Sound quality

Camera setup is messy ; Fingerprint scanner not great

Given that this is a powerful but compact handset the Sony Xperia 5 II retains much that's appealing - with a good build, lots of power and a great display. Certainly, it has more appeal then the costly Xperia 1 II, but once again, it faces strong...

Sony Xperia 5 II

 

With a £100 price increase over its predecessor, the Xperia 5 II undoubtedly steps into flagship territory. How does it fare?

Sony Xperia 5 II review: Sony’s better-value flagship

 

Similar to the Xperia 1 II but £300 cheaper, the Xperia 5 II is the superior choice

Cheaper than Xperia 1 II ; Colour-accurate 120Hz screen ; Sublime camera performance

Still a bit pricey

It might be the world’s trickiest game of spot the difference but the shared similarities with the Xperia 1 II make the Xperia 5 II the more worthwhile purchase. In my view, the Xperia 5 II is a rip-roaring success and, if you were initially dismayed...

Sony Xperia 5 II review

 

Compact dimensions, not compromised specifications

Flagship hardware, sensibly priced ; Pro-grade camera apps ; Gorgeous high-refresh rate screen

No wireless charging ; Fingerprint sensor tricky for left-handers

Takes everything we loved about the Xperia 1 II and makes it a lot more affordable, with minimal compromise
