Weekly poll results: the Sony Xperia 5 V is a great phone but is overpriced

Like last year’s Mark 4, people love the Sony Xperia 5 V, but they don’t love its price. In other words, it’s a great phone, it’s just that there are other great phones out there that don’t cost as much.

Not only that, Sony has yet to announce a North American release for the phone, which leaves out one of the most important markets – well-heeled consumers who have a limited selection of brands in their local stores. He said it seemed to be a relatively minor issue in the election.

As for the hardware, the (presumably) Xperia 5 has been praised for its excellent battery life. And, of course, having a microSD slot and a headphone jack together in a phone is special. Even Sony’s trademark 21:9 aspect ratio for the screen continues to receive positive comments.

It’s not all perfect though. The complete removal of the telephoto camera proved to be an unpopular move (what was Sony thinking?). The Mark 5 has been criticized for its poor thermal management. Sony lags behind the competition in terms of software support, which isn’t great for a phone this expensive.

And the display’s high refresh rate mode could really use a proper auto mode (if not switched to LTPO).
Sony Xperia 5 V goes on sale later this month, pre-orders should start soon. Pre-orders include a free pair of WH-CH720N noise canceling headphones (worth €100). Check out our written and video reviews to learn more about the phone.
