Sony Xperia 5 V review: At a glance
- What is it? The Sony Xperia 5 V is the more affordable alternative to the Xperia 1 V flagship.
- What is the price? Sony’s Xperia 5 V isn’t available in the US (yet), but costs £849 and €999 in the UK and other regions in Europe, respectively.
- Where can you buy it? The Sony Xperia 5 V was available to pre-order on September 1, with units shipping from September 21 (depending on the region).
- How did we test it? I tested the Sony Xperia 5 V for five days. The review unit was supplied by Sony.
- Is it worth it? The Sony Xperia 5 V is still a fair pick for those after expandable storage, a headphone jack, and swathes of multimedia features, but the phone struggles to stand out elsewhere.
