The Sony Xperia 5 III has a unique feature that many users always ask for
Despite its "old-school" design with relatively large bezels, the Sony Xperia 5 III is a very compact and light smartphone for today's standards. At the same time, the high-end smartphone from the Japanese manufacturer makes only few compromises compared to the flagship, the Sony Xperia 1 III. There are not only a few smartphone users who are looking for exactly that: a compact and light smartphone using components from the high-end segment. The focus of the Sony Xperia 5 III is its compactness on the technological level of the significantly larger Sony Xperia 1 III.
In our review of the Sony Xperia 5 III, the high-end smartphone impresses with its high-quality workmanship and an OLED panel that offers a rich contrast, even if the maximum brightness could still be higher. The same also goes for the image quality of the built-in cameras, despite the variable tele lens and Zeiss lenses. You also have to make some small compromises in terms of the equipment, since the Xperia 5 III, like its predecessor, does not offer wireless charging.
Those who are looking for a compact high-end smartphone with Snapdragon 888 SoC should take a closer look at the Xperia 5 III. Our test results will offer you a detailed impression of the Sony smartphone. The high-end market does not offer many alternatives in this form factor. With the Zenfone 8, Asus offers a similarly compact and, thanks to the Snapdragon 888, also powerful smartphone that was also able to impress us in our test.
