Sony Xperia 5 II: Review
The Sony Xperia 5 II is a smaller, less-expensive version of the Xperia 1 II. It offers most of the powerful features in a more comfortable and pocketable size. It’s an ideal choice for media lovers, gamers, and budding photographers and cinematographers, even at its $899 price point.
- The slim waist of the Xperia 5 II makes the phone comfortable to hold and use in your hand.
- Sony gave the phone lots of functional design elements too, most of which are on the right edge.
- In everyday use, the phone felt fluid and fast. There were no slow-downs, stutters, or lags.
Review: Tech Radar
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 Xperia 5 II, as it features a great camera, beautiful screen and long-lasting battery.
- Easy-to-use design
- Great cameras
- 120Hz screen looks great
- Annoying Google Assistant button
- Still quite a high price
- Antiquated unlock button
Review: The Verge
The Xperia 5 II includes three rear cameras; the main camera with a large 1/1.7-inch sensor, an ultrawide camera with a 124-degree field of view, and a telephoto with 3x optical zoom. What’s nice here is that they all have the same resolution, 12 megapixels.
- 120Hz display
- Manual camera options
- Headphone jack
- No 5G in US
- One too many buttons
- No wireless charging
