Anonymous, 06 Sep 2019after the z5 heating issues way back, i gave up on sony mobilesThis is because of the SnapDragon 810. This was Qualcomm's first 64 Bit SoC. This was the same year Samsung released the S6 with Exynos chips in the US instead of Snapdragon 810. A lot of companies had issues with this SoC chip heating up on small tasks, the newer ones are much better.
I just read that Xperia 5 DOESN'T have 960fps video record, gsm arena should investigate/correct
Noooo 3100 battery is too much for me, c'mon sony you can do better! I need 2500 a least. I cant live without charging my phone 2 times a day!
Bla, 07 Sep 2019no removable battery? no 3.5mm jack? excuse me but what year are we in? 2011.? Which 2019 phone has a removable battery, like what? We moved on to nano sim and you also need to accept that you will never expect a 3.5mm jack on a flagship that is the last thing they'd keep on a flagship if you want one SO BAD, then just buy a midrange or gaming phone cause that's basically the only category they stay in
light, 07 Sep 2019So no 3.5mm jack, no FM radio, no removable battery or ir blaster, what makes this phone a sma... moreAre you kidding??? Do you still thinking you are living on 2005 ?? Then Go grab Sony Ericsson P800 . Modern phone is not for you.
Its funny still there a people whose prefer a removable battery over waterproof & slim phone.
I wonder what phone are you using now
Compact phone nice jocke :)
korbindallis, 07 Sep 2019What are you complaining for this is not a flagship phone its a smaller phone its not competin... moreNot complaining. I'm not sure if you really understood what I posted. It's just an observation based on people who always complains about Sony releasing 2 phones a year. Now that Sony just release a similar phone to X1, they complain about having no new features.
Sony Xperia maker... Why are you messing up with all the design of your phones please do not waste your skills please make a better one not like this crappy Xperia 1 and 5 common already... ✌️
Well, if this phone surprised us with its battery life, just like the XZ1 2 years ago with 82h ER, I'll be looking at those speechless comments and observed like it that was the moment... But, in a meanwhile, I will wait and keep observing just to see how the warzone could go...
ben ben, 07 Sep 2019sony is not focusing on mobile sales. I think they are just supplying parts these days. All t... moreSony needs to have their own platforms to test their parts on. You might just as well recover some R&D cost by selling them.
The only difference between this and the X1 is the screen and the battery, that's all. The rest is just EXACTLY THE SAME! After comparing those two, I decided to have the X5 instead of the X1. Tbh, I just cannot see why you need a screen with super high ppi. 400-500 ppi is already enough.
X5: 6.1", 1080p, 449 ppi
X1: 6.5", 1644p, 643 ppi
So no 3.5mm jack, no FM radio, no removable battery or ir blaster, what makes this phone a smartphone than?
Thank you, Next.
chichacorn, 07 Sep 2019People: Sony should make 1 flagship phone a year not every 6 months. Sony: Ok here's Xperia 1... moreWhat are you complaining for this is not a flagship phone its a smaller phone its not competing with the xperia 1
dikich, 07 Sep 20193140 mah is this a joke... ? ...for 860 $ ?...if you do not have enough money, it is a joke... SONY is for people with money (like IPHONES)
People: Sony should make 1 flagship phone a year not every 6 months.
Sony: Ok here's Xperia 1, then here's Xperia 5, which is basically same as Xperia 1 but a bit smaller and cheaper and lower screen res.
People: WTF! So stupid of Sony releasing an Xperia 5 that is similar to Xperia 1, without new features.
3140 mah is this a joke... ? ...for 860 $ ?
I cant understand sony hater critises
What about this phone is old?
seems that nowadays critising sony is cool.
what other brands did that sony didn't?
Even new samsung flagships is like sony's old design.
both sony amd firefox are rising but some people always critise them specially their critises are really unfair.
Be honest with yourselves dear friends!
sony is not focusing on mobile sales. I think they are just supplying parts these days. All their release of these models are just for the sake of it I believe. rather have a model every year than none. Its just throwing in some cash to waste and let people know that they're there. Otherwise I don't see a reason why they're releasing outdated crap every year with a premium price.
