Wow. I was one of those haters of Sony for putting such a skimpy battery on the Xperia 5. But darn Sony really proved me wrong. Fantastic battery life.
Great job on the battery life, Sony.

If only they could utilise the touchscreen tech of the mobile division and improve the touchscreen experience of their cameras.
No 3.5mm jack but 3.5mm headphones, why not USB-C ?

158 tall that's not compact at all
Still can't understand why the hell Sony removed wireless charging capability while it was presented in their flagships for years. That's a bad move for sure. Also it's hard to understand how they have managed to mess up with old school physical fingerprint sensor which is the most reliable and fastest unlocking option for years by now. This two major things as well as average sound quality (which was not the case before) make this phone DON'T BUY to me for the current price tag. I would't complain if it was $500 phone though.

It only shows 4K when you are watching 4K media. Games and apps are in 1080p otherwise.
Why would anyone buy this , Same stupid design from the back , no full screen display in 2019 end , smallest battery ever and expensive rate . I would never suggest anyone to buy this phone ever .

my SOT still getting a little bit over 8 hours using the apps calculation with this 4k LCD screen
It's an awful pity that Sony's great photography sector refuses to collaborate with its mobile sector. Rather, they shared their cutting-edge technology with companies like Huawei, and as a result Sony smartphones never get high scores in photography contests. Otherwise they would surely be a class-leading player in mobile photography.
Haters mocked the battery size. 96h , LOL ......
Here comes the best. This devoce will still have more than 3000mAh after 2 years, while other brands with 4000 wont have 3000 ....
Anonymous, 18 Sep 2019Xperia 1 = imx445 (Motion eye) Xperia 5 = imx563 (regular ) wait what, the camera's aren't the same between X1 and X5? i thought they were meant to be the same hmm
Since I'm using a Beyerdynamic T5p 2nd gen, no headphone jack is a deal breaker for me. Too bad, I really like Sony's phone and this one is no exception.
I just love, how Sony phones always get so much hated for battery size despite being as big as in many other phones, but ends up being the longest running in it's class. :D
Eat this spec warriors!
