The Sony Xperia 5 III has a unique feature that many users always ask for

The only 6.1-inch 120Hz OLED display in the 21:9 format makes the Sony Xperia 5 III a very comfortable and light Snapdragon 888 smartphone

The slightly more affordable and also more compact version of the Sony Xperia 1 III distinguished itself in our test with its marked comfort combined with high-quality workmanship. Those who are looking for a compact smartphone with a Snapdragon 888 will hardly be able to give a pass to the Xperia 5 III.

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.

I have always been very passionately interested in mobile technologies, especially smartphones. Being a tech enthusiast means the half-life of my devices isn’t exactly long, and being the latest hardware is not enough to suffice as the manufacturer and operating system play a minor role – the most important aspect for me is that the device is state-of-the-art. After posting for Mobi Test I joined Notebookcheck in 2016, where I have been pursuing my enthusiasm for technology by reviewing the latest smartphone, tablet, and accessory trends.
