Sony Xperia 5 II Review

Below you can see the Sony Xperia 5 II review.


  1. The company has Snapdragon 865 chipset with support for Sub 6 GHz 5G connectivity on the phone.
  2. In the camera section, the 12 MP triple set will appear on the rear panel.
  3. The OLED screen comes with Corning Glass 6 protection.
  4. Fast charging on a huge Li-Po 4000 battery will be at your service.
  5. It is expected to sell around $ 750 (55,000 INR).

Design and Display

Xperia 5 II phone maintains the elegant design for your procedure and, as we mentioned above, it has very fine bezels on the top and bottom of the chin, which gradually increase the ratio between the screen and the body.

In addition, Xperia 5 II is also quite slim, but you can feel the triple impact of the camera. Unlike most high-tech smartphones, it receives a 6.1 inches flat OLED screen that offers a 120 Hz refresh rate with a 240 Hz touch sampling experience. In addition, they pack this phone with the latest version of gorilla glass 6, which combines with IP68 certification for water and dust resistance.

In the end, all of these things give you a tremendously incredible screen and a premium feel in your hand. But on the negative side, the top-notch covers a small area, although it is minimized by the lower chin, it is still not good enough like full-screen devices. Check out the Xperia 8 Lite phone that was also announced in September.

Memory and Internal

The peak of the power of the remarkable Snapdragon 865 chipset that comes with a robust set of graphics cores and power supply. It makes sense when you have a performance-oriented X-Reality Engine built into the system, which basically increases endurance, and something like the Snapdragon 865 SoC becomes a necessity for everything to work perfectly.

In terms of storage, there was no shortage, the 8 GB of RAM is enough for heavy games and performance sessions while the 128 GB storage asset is excellent and at the same time enough space for a normal user. Although, in a typical case, larger storage and RAM show superiority than others.

However, Sony is a smartphone company that has not moved with criticism. Their devices are always unique and have the incredible capacity to work, just like their employees.


Sony ties the knot with Zeiss and renders a triple camera defined in the phone as the main camera configuration, where each lens is 12 MP, but with different lens features, such as wide-angle, ultra-wide, and finally telephoto to maintain its flagship status.

However, things go south when we hear that the company only renders an 8 MP selfie port, which may seem small on paper, but at ground level, the additional adjustments of the Zeiss optics balance everything. In addition, in the video section, you will have 4K, EIS gyroscope, and slow-motion capabilities.

Battery and Others

In addition to the compact configuration on the camera’s main board, the phone is equipped with a 4000 mAh battery with fast charging and USB Delivery 3.0 technology.

It has many new technologies intact on its screen, as well as protection, such as IP certification, Triluminos display, and covers much more. In addition, you will have top-level sound quality with an exceptional dynamic vibration system, alongside a favorite aesthetic 3.5mm jack.
