Opout the traditional compact path. Test Sony Xperia 5

The Sony Xperia 5 is a smartphone that continues the tradition of compact spades model Japanese characters. It’s just that this tradition is abandoned, the traditional user of the Compact model doesn’t have to be afraid of the new product. The reason is that Sony still has a relatively new design with a very stretched display.

The traditional Japanese character of the mobile phone has chosen a slightly untraditional approach to the smartphone of the current generation. The displays have stretched more than usual, they have an aspect ratio of 21: 9. They can do without towers and other extras, and Sony has definitely gained attention: when nothing else, its smartphones in the current production are really original and stand out from the series.

One such model is the Xperia 5, which is actually the Xperia 1 with only a slightly smaller display. In addition to the size and resolution of the display, there is a minimum difference between these models, which at first glance makes the Xperii 5 an ideal choice for those who do not want to use a smartphone.

Last but not least, the 158 millimeter, which is only three millimeters smaller than the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ with its 6.8-inch display, will probably not be a food for lovers of compact pieces. The traditional Compact models, most recently the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact, also excelled in an attractive power / price ratio. This is also the case with the news pad.

So is Xperia 5 big and expensive?

Wrong with the noise of looking at it. If you are looking for a replacement for the Xperia XZ2 Compact and other Sony traditional compact series, then you are probably really prepared for disappointment. While the XZ2 Compact started at 15,500 crowns and today, of course, it can be significantly cheaper, so the novelty set the price at 19,990 crowns, which is only three thousand under this type of Xperia 1.

Yes, it’s the bottom basically because the phones are only minimally equipped, so Sony doesn’t want to spoil sales of this model, but for traditional users of smaller top model features, it’s disappointing. What is measured is a specific 158 x 68 x 8.2 mm, the display has a 6.1 inch depth. Vt type Xperia 1 m wall 167 x 72 x 8.2 mm at a depth of 6.5 inches. Compared to the last of the real compacts, the novelty has grown mainly to the age, the dimensions of the XZ2 Compact type are 135 x 65 x 12.1 mm. Brutln nrst height of about 2.5 centimeters will really not suit you.

On the other hand, we can look at the Xperia 5 as a modified and compact Xperia 1, and for those who simply want a slightly smaller top model, this one can be absolutely ideal.

How does it fit in your hand?

Drain in hand new dimensions of Nevada. The body is nice and thin, it can also be easily hugged by hand and the phone can be held in your hand for quite some time. But beware, the shiny body m a little tended to slide. And that in combination with age is a little sweat, because you phone gets a little tight from your hand. The long body does not have to be nice when you put it in your pocket.

A little on the right side also held the tin in the hand. This switch is precisely in the place where the fingers fall in many types of grips, this pays for the flow of the fingerprint and also the button of the camera. Although the buttons have a firm grip, they also do not threaten to soften them by mistake, but it is easy that their presence can be uncomfortable with the finger. Again, we have to assume that Sony has divided the shutter button and the dot, which used to be integrated in the first button in some older models. According to us, a double unit is not very practical, although on the contrary, the flow on the side is an ideal idea.

m to drive if from Xperie 1?

It’s really small. Apart from the size and depth of the display (6.1 vs. 6.5 inches on the Xperia 1), its resolution is also: 1,080 x 2,520 pixels, however, guarantees a fine fineness of 449 pixels per inch, so don’t worry. The display is of the OLED type and its image is really flush.

There is a slight difference in the design: on the walls, the set of cameras moved to the upper left corner, this sony was about a beautifully symmetrical design and sets out on a path of similarity with the floating pedestrian women. On the other hand, the Xperia 5 is quite recognizable thanks to its minimalist and relatively angular links and single proportions. By the way, we are testing a black color design, which we think is a bit boring, would bring that minimalism to perfection. red, blue and ed versions, which are available in the Czech Republic, but will be an attractive choice.

The other equipment is the same?

Yes, basically yes. There are small features such as water and dust resistance (IP68), a dual-SIM unit with a hybrid slot, stereo speakers and a peak of dynamic vibrations. This is very pleasing to you when feedback when typing on the virtual keyboard on the phone, the overall vibration of the phone cultivates and more accurately. There is a triple focus and an eight-megapixel shot, as well as a sibling and a new post-wireless shot.

The code according to NS is that Xperia 5 m stle Android 9.0. From the software tweaks, we will find the so-called Bon Snapshot, which is a function that, by double-clicking on the Bon Edge of the display, launches a menu with shortcuts to popular applications and functions. It just takes a lot of trit to make the function work reliably, we had to get used to it a bit by the way, and we also had to get used to the sensitivity of the side.

How’s the photo?

We can rest assured that it is the same as the Xperia 1. The set of cameras is completely identical, so we will find three eyelets with the main, wide angle and zoom range. The zoom is double, the resolution of all images is 12 megapixels and the main and telephoto lens have optical image stabilization. The luminosity is f / 1.6 for the main optics, the rest are f / 2.4. The images from the Xperia 5 are quite solid thanks to these assemblies, but it is known that they lose a bit at the absolute peak.

According to us, it is not as much as it would suggest that 91 points in the DxO Mark test Xperia 1 got this rating, but due to the same technique we can apply it to the Xperia 5 model. and worse lighting conditions, art and errors quickly come into play here, the pictures are a bit dark compared to the competition, but sometimes they have a realistic and natural impression.

How is the vdr battery?

This time even better than the Xperia 1. While we added to the simple diameter, we can move the Xperia 5 to a slightly above average. This is despite the fact that the battery capacity has changed to 3,140 mAh. Only in absolute hearing is it a decrease of only 190 mAh, which is negligible in terms of dark capacity. On the other hand, the decrease in display resolution means that the Snapdragon 855 processor and other hardware (6 GB RAM, Adreno 640 graphics) do not do so much with the rendered image, so the phone is in dispute as a result. On the other hand, the Xperia 5 manages with a clear view not type 1, and even an extended weekend without charging may not be full of drowning this time, if the user is modest.

Mm si ji podit?

Xperia 5 is a very specific smartphone for a specific audience. According to us, traditional clients will disappoint traditional clients with the Compact Japanese character model. But as a separate piece, the Xperia 5 was a bit nicer than the Xperia 1. It fits better in your hand, while the display is still very large. Vdr battery is better, the price is not in this respect according to ours, we would take the bird more than one.

Compared to the competition, it is again very tk. Nobody else has noodles like Sony, maybe we can only look at the new Motorola Razr, but it will be an unreal track. Although it is true that 19,990 crowns in the case of the Xperia 5 is not a low price. If you are looking for a compact smartphone, you can walk in this case with Samsung, its Galaxy S10e has a classic 5.8-inch display and, due to the discount price, you can go for a very attractive 13,590 crowns. Honor 20 Pro with the same age as the xperia (but irm body) has a 6.26-inch display, spade equipment, much better focus and costs less than 13 thousand crowns. In this competition, it will not be easy for the Xperia 5.
