Sony Xperia 5 IV full review

The Sony Xperia 5 IV has just been announced and it’s expected to launch later this month for around 1000 dollars/pounds/euros. It introduces a few updates over the Xperia 5 III – a brighter display, an updated design, a faster chipset, a better selfie experience, longer battery life, wireless charging but a any smartphone is more than the sum of its features.

  1. I was ready to jump ship and get the Asus ZenFone 9 because I want to support companies that still invest in compact phones. But I was disappointed that Asus decided to raise the price by £50 and now Sony came up with this masterpiece.
    Any thoughts?

  2. Sick Samsuck fanboy, yours Samsung toy have same Snapdragon.
    Before you talk shitty words,where is snap 8+ go educate self and see that 8+ is only 10% faster,then Snap 8.
    So do not talk your shitty same words,you shame self.
    Do not share lies about heating, in new phone and all Xperia phones,which xou never use.

  3. Sony seems to make the most objectively ideal phones on the market, the fact that their market share is minuscule is really baffling, and the limited availability means it's nearly impossible to find deals or discounts on even the previous two models. I thought this would be the one for me, but the small improvements don't really justify the price, so I considered just getting a 5 III, but even now they haven't dropped in price, and even went up a little? sigh, guess I'll wait for the 10 V…

  4. Thanks so much for the review great to hear some additional thoughts and findings. As a Canon photographer and videographer, I have always owned only Sony Xperia smartphones which I have actually used in some commercial projects as well as other projects, and have been holding off a while updating my 2019 Xperia 5 and this new mark iv looks to be the perfect step up especially in the video despite some negative reviews popping up – I was actually on the verge of going for the Xperia 1 iv with its over the top monthly contract price of £60 a month here in the uk but now this new xperia 5 is arriving it makes sense to hold on another month when it arrives october in uk im assuming for a little less monthly cost due to lack of the extra zoom and 4k screen!
