Android version and market relevance

Sony Xperia 5 IV is smartphone of 2022, which was officially announced in September the world′s electronics manufacturer — the company Sony. In addition, this smartphone supports the work of two SIM cards, here you are, and please, the first reason for buying this model (or any other dual-smartphone from the catalog).

In 2022 this new model works out of the box running the Android operating system 12. But in the market of android-smartphones an important factor when buying a new device is the possibility of updating it to a fresh version of the OS. So Sony Xperia 5 IV has not received any software updates, which is very sad, so we advise you to look at other DROID-smartphones in our catalog.

There is another feature of this model — it works in the fifth generation networks (5G). This means that you can watch online video in 4K or even 8K quality without loading delay, you can play online games without freezing the interface. All 5G smartphones save battery power and can run longer than on 3G\LTE networks.

Screen, body and battery

It is worth paying attention to good 6.1-inch capacitive OLED touchscreen smartphone Sony Xperia 5 IV with display refresh rate 120 Hz. A real shoveler, which is great for watching videos, surfing the Internet and full-screen games. You will be very surprised at how much information is placed on one screen. But, unfortunately, with one hand you will not be comfortable with using a smartphone. In addition, Sony Xperia 5 IV has very small frames around the screen (speaking in numbers, the screen occupies from 80% to 90% of the area of the entire front panel. The thickness of the case is 8.2 mm. This also accommodated a battery capacity of 5 000 mAh.

And you′ll love the Sony Xperia 5 IV that there is support for protecting the case from dust and water.

Main camera and selfie camera

The smartphone Sony Xperia 5 IV got the main camera with multiple modules (triple camera smartphones): 12 MP Wide + 12 MP Telephoto + 12 MP UltraWide. And there is also a front camera that has one module: 12 MP Wide. If you judge only by the number of megapixels, then the main camera is very weak. But the frontcamera not very good, we have in our catalog real selfie smartphones. It seems that we have already written many times that before buying you need to see a smartphone and hold it in your hands. And speaking about cameras, I would like to repeat the same idea once again — look at the reviews about this model, see examples of photos taken by this smartphone. It often happens that in search of a low price, you buy a model with a camera of tens of megapixels, but the photos and videos will not be of high quality.

Processor and Internal Memory

Brilliant multi-core processor Snapdragon 8 Gen1 (4 nm) installed in Sony Xperia 5 IV. 8 GB of RAM will help make the interface work smoother. There is also built-in memory in the smartphone, which stores photos, videos, music and all your other data. The amount of this built-in memory is 128/256 GB. Memory cards you can also use, in this model are supported microSDXC-cards.

Price for Sony Xperia 5 IV: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone Sony Xperia 5 IV got into our price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500” and began to be sold in September 2022 at a price of $1000. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. Sony Xperia 5 IV is a very smart smartphone with a huge screen and a conventional main camera, and the front camera did not turn out super cool. And to all this we add that the battery here deserves special attention, because it received a very powerful with increased capacity.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.
