Sony Xperia 5 V Review: A Compact Powerhouse in Your Pocket

Sony’s Xperia 5 series began as a low-cost follow-up to the original Xperia 1 series, with the first three packing the same camera systems as the flagship models. The Xperia 1 III was a real game-changer, with its continuous zoom Periscope camera. However, in recent years, compromises have started to creep in, and the 5V is perhaps the most compromised in the series. But does being a copycat of the Xperia 1V mean the 5V is a bad phone? Not at all. After a few weeks of hands-on testing, the 5V’s solid build, small size, great battery life, consistent performance, and excellent primary camera really do make it shine. However, it’s not without flaws. Sony Xperia 5 V Review: A Compact Powerhouse in Your Pocket
