Anonymous, 06 Sep 2019Xperia 5 replaces XZ2.
XZ2c does not have replacement because they decided to kill the seri... moreI think most compact users would agree that we'd love to see sony attempt to put the biggest screen they can fit on the XZ1c body even if it's an odd aspect ratio excluding 21:9 as it surely won't fit. 19:9 19.5:9 18:9 whichever works best. Add a bit of thickness for higher battery capacity.
But knowing sony, this will never happen
Anonymous, 08 Sep 2019Seriously you just cannot call a phone like this a "compact". Only below a 5 incher is a true ... moreI think we can call the phone a compact even if it has a 5" display as long as it fits the xz1compact body. Bezels are getting slimmer now thanks to OLED panels giving us a higher screen to body ratio.
@gsmarena, sony never stated the word "compact' with xperia 5 so please avoid it. Giving false hope to previous compact users :) thanks.
JokerMNE, 15 Sep 2019Forget to mention, UFS 2.1 storage to the end of 2019, really Sony, for 800 euros?! LOL Sam... moreThis is Samsung Galaxy 10e rival. Price for samsung was 750 eur when released. I own S10e and I can tell you xperia 5 is a better phone. Battery will last much longer, processor is more powerful, cameras are perhaps equal. Price will get lower. I would pick sony over sam anytime.

Same like Apple. They think we are all idiots.
Like always, camera on Sony devices only have bunch of uselless features. But quallity is far away from Huawei and Samsung. Even Apple build better cameras.
Deepu, 13 Sep 2019Every thing is impressive expect battery 3140mah only.
I suggest Sony to make minimum 4500-5... moreThe battery gain the weight and you will feel like bring the smartphone with power bank in your hand at the same time to force you use both handed.
My suggestion is develop new technology to reduce battery consumption and less bulky on software. Furthermore if can create a lightest new battery with high capacity it would be better.
Chrsjns, 10 Sep 2019Those who like a compact phone should get the galaxy s10e.....Galaxy s10 e?
Exytec + Mali?
Low end screen?
Mid range cameras?
Updates 6 months late?
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2019Lol. I will still choose k20 pro even if xperia 5 sells for $350.I guess it's used to low-end screens and camera with noise
Every thing is impressive expect battery 3140mah only.
I suggest Sony to make minimum 4500-5000mah battery so that people may buy. Otherwise people won't buy.

The Xperia, throughout my life using Sony, I have realized that the durability of these phones and the quality plus the user experience overshadow any negative, as the technology usually fails, and of course this one that one or another who risked buying a brand difefrente unfortunately failed a phone sony.
Year after year we see Sony perfecting their phones, Sony does much with little, is what a lot do not understand.
Let's say right now I have the Xperia Xz3 Only with 4 GB of ram, but at the time of running the system, still maintains elegance of use, this OLED screen, plus exceptional performance in games even with resolutions 2k and high graphics.
Imagine now, these phones with 6GB of ram, and screen 4k and 2k respectively.
800 Euros! Wow I am so glad there are manufacturers like Xaiomi who give us phones that are 95% of the big boys but at 1/3rd the cost. I mean seriously this phone has no standout feature except the price which really stands out!
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2019Xperia 5 looks cheap and oldHard to understand why you can not make more description to clarify what are you talking about the cheap and old you say, by just leaving some critics is so rude. I have point out the design from Huawei and Samsung, if you can't accept my description just explain why you don't agree with me. Personally I love simplicity (Japanese's Zen) so I those complicated and fancy toys won't attract me because their designer just add in too much elements but can't makes it looks forever well looking, only Zens especially Japanese Zens can keep it nice looking year after year. I am not a designer but these designers (Huawei and Samsung) are far from the best, I am sorry.
Once you get your hands on Bezel-less smartphones, there ain't no turning back. This ain't one of those device.
