Sony Xperia 5 review

£700.00 Typical price

Test scoreShow Context

Reviewed

Sony has long since ditched the block-like smartphone designs in exchange for the stylish and sleek looks of the Xperia 5. It features an HDR OLED display with a 21:9 aspect ratio that’s ideal for watching movies on the phone. But is the Xperia 5's fancy exterior just distracting packaging for a substandard phone? We sent it straight to our labs and put it to work.
