Case - Dust and waterproof Android smartphone

Unlike the Xperia 1 II, the edges of the Xperia 5 II are rounded. On the exterior, glass dominates the look, with the entire case being certified as waterproof and dustproof according to the IP65/68 standard. Furthermore, the use of Corning Gorilla Glass 6 is intended to prevent the display from breaking. Workmanship is of high quality and gives no cause for criticism. In terms of colors, buyers can choose between black, blue and gray.

At a weight of 163 grams, the Xperia 5 II is the lightest smartphone in our test field. Due to the elongated format, the width of approximately 6.8 cm is also narrower than that of competing phones.

Connectivity - With audio jack and card reader

Sony equips the Xperia 5 II with a 3.5 mm audio jack and a notification LED. In addition, there's a USB Type-C port with the 3.1 standard and a combined microSD/nano SIM slot. Furthermore, the 128 GB internal storage can be expanded by up to 1 TB, according to the manufacturer. If two nano SIM cards are used, however, the possibility of expanding the storage capacity is lost.

The VoWLAN and VoLTE features can be used, but 5G can only be accessed by one active SIM at a time. Streaming fans can also access media content in high resolution thanks to DRM Widevine L1.

Software - Sony smartphone runs Android 10

The Xperia 5 II is running Android 10 with security patches at the level of August 1, 2020. The user interface has been slightly modified by Sony, giving users a different arrangement in the settings menu. In addition, there are just a few preinstalled third-party apps on the smartphone that can only be disabled but not uninstalled. The highlights are the Cinema Pro and Photo Pro apps, which are exclusively available on Sony's Xperia phones.

Telephone and call quality - Clear voice transmission

The Sony Xperia 5 II offers medium volume during phone calls. Speech is transmitted well, but noisy environments can lead to comprehension problems. The standard telephone app from Android offers the same functions that are found on other smartphones.

Cameras - Better photos with Pro applications

Front-facing camera sample
Front-facing camera sample

Sony equips the Xperia 5 II with three 12 MP sensors that are suitable for wide-angle, zoom, and close-up photography. Our test photos were taken with the standard camera app and draw a similar picture. Colors look quite good, and objects are clearly recognizable. In the close-up range, however, their edges are somewhat blurred. Panoramic shots, on the other hand, show better results, and even in low-light conditions, subjects and colors are still visible.

As a replacement for the professional mode, Sony provides the Xperia-exclusive app "Photo Pro" that is inspired by the Alpha cameras. This app provides settings options that are just as extensive as on the manufacturer's SLR cameras and delivers significantly better image results. The front-facing camera can take portrait pictures at 8 MP. These show good colors and many details. In addition, beautifying modes and a soft skin effect are available for adjustment purposes.

Sony also uses two applications for shooting videos. The camera app delivers a similar image result to our sample photos, and it also comes with a good image stabilizer. Switching between light and dark scenes doesn't pose any problems for the camera either. The available resolutions are 4K, Full HD, Full HD at 60 fps, 1080x1080 (1:1), and HD. Once again, Sony installs the Xperia-exclusive app "Cinema Pro" here; this offers comprehensive functions for filming videos with the smartphone.

Accessories and warranty - No extras in the box

The Xperia 5 II comes with a USB power adapter with a matching USB Type-C cable and a SIM tool. Additional accessories can be obtained from the manufacturer's website.

Sony grants buyers of the Xperia 5 II a warranty period of 24 months.

Input devices and handling - Reliable fingerprint scanner

Google's keyboard app GBoard is available for entering text. This can be individually customized, and the touchscreen reacts very well to touch. Even longer drag-and-drop gestures are easily possible due to the smooth screen surface. The side-mounted fingerprint scanner responds well to stored fingerprints. However, face recognition is not supported.

The screen of the Xperia 5 II consists of a 6.1-inch OLED panel in the 21:9 format with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The average brightness is 562 cd/m²; although this is actually a good value, it's exceeded by our test field. In addition, we detected PWM flickering at a value of 238 Hz during operation, which could cause problems for users with sensitive eyes.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 238.1 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 238.1 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 238.1 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21033 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The settings menu allows users to customize the display of the Xperia 5 II. In this way, the color temperature and color space can be selected. As the CalMAN analysis shows, the "warm" default setting is recommended for balanced color proportions.

Performance - Xperia 5 II only reads memory cards slowly

Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 and 8 GB of RAM ensure a smooth system operation in the Sony Xperia 5 II. This combination is also found in many of the current competing smartphones, which is also reflected in the closely aligned benchmark results. Depending on the discipline, Sony's smartphone is in the lower midfield, but it can also occasionally take first place.

Sony uses a 128 GB UFS 3.0 storage device in the Xperia 5 II. It provides good read and write speeds, but it can't keep up with the UFS 3.0 and 3.1 storage speeds of the competition. According to the manufacturer, the internal card reader accepts storage media with a capacity of up to 1 TB. With our reference memory card, the Toshiba Exceria Pro M501, however, only comparatively low speeds are reached.

Verdict - Sony Xperia 5 II for smartphone photographers

In review: Sony Xperia 5 II. Test device provided by: Sony Germany
In review: Sony Xperia 5 II. Test device provided by: Sony Germany

Sony is consistently developing the Xperia 5 II further. Old strengths are retained and extended with modern hardware. In this way, the Android phone now also supports 5G and is significantly faster when using WLAN. Not only does the stronger hardware ensure a fundamentally improved performance under load, but we also find the system operation to be much smoother. The biggest leap forward, however, is the battery life, since it has almost doubled compared to the predecessor.

The purchase of the Sony Xperia 5 II is especially worthwhile because of the camera software.

Camera enthusiasts will also benefit from the Photo Pro app, as it delivers significantly better pictures than the standard camera application at times. Since the latter also takes visibly longer to save a picture, users can confidently go for the Pro app when it comes to snapshots too. Those who can get used to the form factor of the Xperia 5 II will get a first-class phone that also has its price, though.

I carried out my first IT experiments with a 386-based system and a whole 4 MB RAM. This was followed by work on various PCs and laptops that I maintained and repaired for friends and acquaintances. After training to become a Telecommunications Systems Technician and gaining a few years of experience, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering. Currently, I pursue my fascination for IT, technology, and mobile devices by writing reviews and articles for Notebookcheck. I have also worked for Gamestar, Netzwelt, and Golem, among others.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
