Deal | Sleek Sony Xperia 5 IV smartphone with 3.5mm headphone jack and microSD slot gets rare 20% price cut
Most beautiful Android smartphones designed by the Japanese tech behemoth Sony are pretty expensive high-end devices, and unfortunately, their lofty prices are also remarkably stable until these devices are replaced by an according successor. Although significant discounts are somewhat of a rarity for the most recent model year of these handsets, the pretty new Sony Xperia 5 IV has now received its largest discount yet at several US retailers.
More specifically, Amazon and Best Buy are currently selling the elegant black color variant of the Sony Xperia 5 IV with the well-known Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 flagship SoC and 8GB of memory for just US$799 instead of the official MSRP of US$999. This Android smartphones also comes with a gorgeous 6.1-inch OLED display with a native refresh rate of 120Hz and 128GB of internal storage, which is expandable thanks to the microSD card slot. According to the price tracker at Camelcamelcamel, this is the very first price drop of the Sony Xperia 5 IV in the United States since its release on September 1.
We haven't tested the Sony Xperia 5 IV just yet, but prospective buyers might want to check out our comprehensive review of the immediate predecessor from 2021. This latest revision of the Xperia 5 line retains the rather unique light and compact design, and features like the 3.5mm headphone jack make this smartphone a premier choice for audiophiles who refuse to switch to wireless headphones. We also expect this handset to have a top-notch build quality and a well-performing triple-lens camera system. For the lowest-ever sale price of US$799, the Xperia 5 IV is arguably worth consideration for Sony fans and enthusiasts who don't necessarily have to buy a device made by one of the two heavyweights in the smartphone segment.
