Sony Xperia 5 II review: A true compact flagship, with classic Sony problems

 

The Sony Xperia 5 II is just the right size, has a sleek unusual design, and a very high specification, making it a rarity in the smartphone world today.

Compact, lightweight design ; Beautiful OLED screen ; Powerful processor ; Long battery life

No wireless charging ; No 5G in the U.S. ; Camera quirks are frustrating

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

 

Excellent build quality ; Solid camera performance ; Headphone jack

Expensive ; No 5G ; No wireless charging

The Sony Xperia 5 II is an attractive Android phone with excellent build quality and capable cameras, but without 5G and wireless charging, it feels instantly out of date and not worth its high price.

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: the right tool for the right jobs

 

An expensive phone that sometimes struggles to meet you halfway.

120Hz display ; Manual camera options ; Headphone jack

No 5G in US ; One too many buttons ; No wireless charging

Sony’s latest phone, the Xperia 5 II, is packed with plenty of options that give you a huge amount of control if you know how to use it. It’s got a 120Hz display, decent battery life, and a trio of cameras including an ultrawide and telephoto.

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 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

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...
