Here’s what the media are saying about the Xperia 5 at IFA

Here are just some of the reactions from the world’s press and media.


‘The phone looks great, with the same striking design language as the bigger model [Xperia 1] but still being completely different. It’s slim enough to fit smaller hands well and feels great in the hand.’

Phone Arena

‘Despite the high IP68 level of water-resistance certification, Sony still managed to equip the Xperia 5 with Dolby Atmos-laden stereo speakers for a true cinematic experience on the large 21:9 display.’

‘Sony has a nice surprise for us in the form of a full DualShock 4 gamepad support, exclusive for the Xperia 1 and 5. While you can connect to your PlayStation 4 controller via Bluetooth on any modern Android, mapping the controller to stroll the interface or play games will be a thing of the future once Android 10 lands for your device. Sony’s flagship Xperia can use DualShock 4 controllers out of the box, sweet!’


‘The fact you can now wirelessly connect your PlayStation’s DualShock 4 controller to the Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 means gaming on the go will be easier than ever.’


‘Sony’s new phones are all about the screen. And what a screen.’

‘A phone that’s focused on making movies and games as beautiful as possible.’

GSM Arena

‘The Xperia 5 is exactly what users sticking to the compact premium smartphone segment are looking for.’


‘The Xperia 5 still brings a triple camera which offers improved night shots and wide-angle images.’

‘Sony has also added Dolby Atmos surround sound technology to add ‘breath-taking realism’ to audio coming from the device, whether you’re using headphones or the built-in stereo speakers on the Xperia 5.’

‘The new device also features what is now Sony’s trademark – a 21:9 CinemaWide Full HD+ OLED display with Dolby Atmos sound. Combined they deliver fantastic colour accuracy and content immersion.’
