Compact my ass! Sony Mobile will disappear from markets if they continues with useless odd phones. I think they should be missing Ericsson from Sweden!
Rdmkr, 05 Sep 2019Sorry but you can't just ignore the whole height dimension when calling a phone "compact". Thi... moreCompact mostly means 1 hand usage-able in anything, yes it too long and your thumb wont likely reach the top but with the upcoming android 10 full gesture that problem will be solved.
The display just s*cks. Even 5-6 years old Sony phones have 2160p displays. Now, Sony is offering 1080p coming at late 2019. Sony must be high on sh*t.
no 3,5mm jack,no fm radio,only 3140mah battery,maybe still not support raw/dng and small sensor camera...
Anonymous, 05 Sep 2019It's too small and too big at the same time with their ridiculous, unbalanced aspect ratio.Yes, this is a very odd design which Sony is trying to set the trend. 😱
The specs are quite good. Sony did nice job by including a triple camera set up.
Rdmkr, 05 Sep 2019Sorry but you can't just ignore the whole height dimension when calling a phone "compact". Thi... moreYeah but nobody holds their phone vertically unless they're using it in a landscape orientation. The 68mm width is what makes the 5 compact.
5.7" Screen with bigger Battery please! Maybe slightly more narrow like 65mm.
Marko97sx, 05 Sep 2019Yes, because companies pay dxomark to make themselves look good oh come on.. :D
just look at the youtube videos, online reviews... sony lags behind on camera software department, it is obvious I don't need dxomark to tell me that..
even xiaomi k20 pro will be cheaper than this phone with better camera.. poco f1 has better camera than xperia 1
height... good enough.
thickness... good enough.
If it is good taking pictures, it will be the perfect phone for me.
Marko97sx, 05 Sep 2019Yes, because companies pay dxomark to make themselves look good Xperia cameras are really not that great, Sony also know that please check out the sample images
Rdmkr, 05 Sep 2019Yes, and that is how small you can expect UI elements, your keyboard and videos in portrait mo... more16:9 is Good but 18:9 looks more beautiful, of course without a notch. 19/21:9 looks like a remote control
The only advantage the 5 has over the XZ3 is a better CPU and two extra cameras, and it costs 850€ (at least), the XZ3 has 960fps slow-motion, wireless charging, both speakers are front facing and it costs 500€, it's a better buy in my opinion.
Yann, 05 Sep 2019You call this small?!? This is more than 2cm higher than X and XZ compact series. 3mm wider. ... moreHow it isn't one handed? What kind of baby hands do you have? The phone even has a 1 handed mode
nick sloter, 05 Sep 2019Ummm yes... worse camera.. did you even read the xperia 1 camera review from dxomark on this v... moreAre we still listening to the f***ing company that everyone pays to make their smartphones look good called dxomark? Really?
Rdmkr, 05 Sep 2019Sorry but you can't just ignore the whole height dimension when calling a phone "compact". Thi... moreand as a reminder, a 6" 16:9 phone has a 14% greater screen area than a 6.1" 21:9 phone, although scaling issues make the difference "feel" even bigger imo.
