Sony Xperia 5 Review | Trusted Reviews

 

The Sony Xperia 5 takes all of the features that made the Xperia 1 a success and boils them down into a smaller, cheaper handset.

Sony Xperia 5 initial review: Good things come in small packages

 

In true Sony fashion, the company announced its second flagship smartphone of the year in the Xperia 5. Here are our first impressions.

Smaller more compact design ; Waterproofing ; Plenty of power ; Software additions ; Solid design

Bezel at top of display ; Drop to Full HD+ resolution

The Sony Xperia 5 is a smaller, more compact model of the Xperia 1 and it's lovely. The reduction in size makes for a more comfortable one-handed device, while many of the super flagship's features are retained. How the Xperia 5 will perform compared...

The second in Sony's trio of smartphones announced at IFA is the Xperia V. While not being quite as exciting as the flagship Xperia T, there is still a

Hands on: Sony Xperia 5 review

 

Sony has taken to IFA 2019 to reveal its next compact flagship phone, and there's a new name involved as it's called the Xperia 5. This isn't a follow-up to the Xperia 1, instead it sits almost alongside in a similar way to the 'Xperia Compact'...

Strong specs Premium design

Not as small as previous handsets No 3.5mm headphone jack

The Sony Xperia 5 features a variety of high-end features that you wouldn't normally see on a smaller phone, but its 21:9 aspect ratio may make it difficult to hold for those with smaller hands.

Sony Xperia V review

 

A water-resistant, 4G capable smartphone

Decent screen ; Playstation certified ; NFC ; 4G

ICS not the slickest ; Not available in UK ; Waterproof worry

The Sony Xperia V is a respectable mid- to high-end smartphone and as long as the 4G connectivity doesn't drain the battery and the water resistance tag doesn't let us down in our full review, it looks set to be a strong contender in the LTE market.

Sony Xperia 5 hands-on review: Is this the new ‘Compact’?

 

The Xperia 5 introduces Sony's top-end features to (slightly) lighter wallets

With an (almost) identical feature list as its bigger brother, it’s certainly a smart move on Sony’s part to bring the price of its flagship down a peg or two. I might be seeing double, but if you can get a similar sort of experience as the Xperia 1...

Sony Xperia V

 

Sony has a good thing going with its latest smartphones. We've seen it with the Xperia Z and Tablet Z, now it's going mid-range via the V.

Waterproof, good value for money, 4.3" screen, LTE enabled

Sony includes the navigation buttons onscreen, lens not as wide as we would like, volume rocker a bit small

Hands on: Sony Xperia V “Bond phone”

 

It could well be an affordable LTE phone to bring in the masses, if telecom operators price it attractively when it goes on sale on December 8.

Sony Xperia 5 hands-on review: Compact, colorful, but not quite a winner

 

Is Sony's Xperia 5 a true successor to the much-loved and now mostly deceased Compact series of Sony phones that packed winning specs into a smaller, more easy to handle body? Almost. It certainly wins on the design, style, colors, and size; but there...

Sony Xperia V review: Bond’s wetsuit

 

It won't be long before those full-HD five-inchers start stealing the show and the older Xperia generation should be preparing for life in their shadow. It doesn't mean though that the Xperia V cannot hope for a good time.

Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support ; 3G with 42.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; LTE Cat3 DL 100 Mbps UL 50 Mbps ; 4.3" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit Reality LCD touchscreen of 720p resolution (720 x 1280 pixels) with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine 2;...

No JellyBean at launch ; Relatively modest battery capacity ; Video recording fails to impress ; No hardware shutter key ; Comes across as overpriced

We're obviously reviewing the Xperia V at a time when the eyes of the Sony faithful are set elsewhere. It's been a year since the Japanese went solo and, although they've blown hot and cold thus far, they seem to have found their pace. With a couple of...
