5.6"-5.8"? PLEASE. MAKE. IT! Sony, you really have my respect.
Hooray for a new small(er) handset option!
i do not need flagship, i need small phone with nice display and new android a decent camera. So Snap765/4GB is enough for me... i dont want overpay for flagship spec.
Add a great set of camera and at least 4 000 battery and you got me in! Enough of the hugeness already.
Fearghast, 10 Apr 2020As an Xperia 5 owner I would really like better Xperia 5 than the huge brick 1 II.
Either way... moreWell, Xperia 1 II is Sony's Premium heir family lineup, and it's also Sony halo flagship phone, which's the biggest, highly specs of any Sony flagship lineup, like Samsung Galaxy Note, LG V series, or Xiaomi Mi Mix lineup, so it's no surprise the dimension of 1 II is big. Even the heirs are no different at all (1, XZ2P, XZP, and Z5P). It's like the McLaren P1 in McLaren Ultimate Series.
Meanwhile, Xperia 5 is the continuation of Sony's Vanilla flagship lineup (with some Xperia Compact DNA here) leftover from XZ2 and XZ3, and their dimensions are medium (between Compact and Premium series), with Xperia Z being the smallest and XZ3 the biggest, so it's known the vanilla was modeled in-between. This one like 720S in McLaren Super Series, while the Compact family is like McLaren Sports Series.

Either way both are possible as candidates, but I do not really need my personal phone to be big, I have my 6,5" "work phone" when I need bigger screen.
We seriously need more no-compromise compact phones on market.

You called Xperia 5 small eventhoigh its 16cm tall.
Nobody really cares about small if its 5.5" what happened to the compacts...
Looks like my new phone. We are all waiting for a smaller phone.
