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


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phone with excellent build quality and capable cameras, but without 5G and wireless charging, it feels instantly out of date and not worth its high price.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: 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 Sony Xperia 5 II further refines Sony's idea of a compact flagship device. It offers all the bells and whistles of its bigger sibling - the ultra-premium Xperia 1 II, and even manages to add some cherries on top. Like the 120Hz display refresh rate...

Beautiful and unique design; Snappy performance; Great battery life; Powerful photo and video software; 3.5mm audio jack and front-facing stereo speakers; IP68 rating

Expensive; Slow charging speeds; 21:9 ratio not for everyone

Sony Xperia 5 II review: A compact version of Sony's wide-screen 5G flagship Review | ZDNet


The 6.1-inch Xperia 5 II packs an updated specification into a more easily handled chassis than the 6.5-inch Xperia 1 II. The 21:9 OLED screen may not be 4K, but you do get a 120Hz refresh rate and a lower price tag.

120Hz OLED screen ; 21:9 aspect ratio ; Good cameras with nice Pro mode apps ; IP rating for dust/water resistance

Some unremovable software extras ; Tall format is hard to use one-handed ; Quite expensive

Sony Xperia 5 II review


The Sony Xperia 5 II features great specs and ZEISS optical technology – but how does it perform when put to the test?

Great for photography enthusiasts ; Beautiful high-quality display ; First Sony phone with 120Hz refresh rate screen

Quite expensive ; Confusing array of buttons ; Real-time Eye AF could focus quicker

Sony's latest offering is the Sony Xperia 5 II, an easy-to-hold body packed with plenty of great high end tech. Featuring ZEISS optical technology, a long-lasting battery and a gorgeous top-quality screen, the Sony Xperia 5 II is a strong contender in...

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
