The Xperia 5 IV, which was just introduced by Sony, is turning out to be one of the most compact Android flagships currently available on the market. Since it has been more than a year since we were wowed by the Xperia 5 III, we are quite excited to meet the device that will take its place: the Sony Xperia 5 IV.

The screen, performance, camera technology, quality, and battery capacity have all been improved, yet the device has (slightly) decreased in size.

The new Sony Xperia 5 IV has a design similar to that of other recent models of the Xperia smartphone line. It has a traditional, straightforward appearance with flat, matte panels made of Gorilla Glass Victus sheets and a flat metal frame with a matte finish. The Sony Xperia 5 IV has the same level of protection against dust and water as the rest of the series.

Unboxing Sony Xperia 5 IV 

The Sony Xperia 5 IV comes in a sleek white package that just includes the smartphone itself and nothing else.

This year, Sony has taken further steps to reduce its impact on the environment. In addition to removing the charger from its packaging, the company has also removed the USB-C cord.

You need to get the 30W Rapid charger XQZ-UC1 charger if you want to take advantage of the fast charging capability. This charger does come equipped with a USB-C cable for your convenience. And it had better be since it costs fifty euros. There are, without a doubt, a wealth of cheaper options provided by third parties.

Sony Xperia 5 IV Design and Performance

First, let’s look at the bright side of things. The Sony Xperia 5 IV keeps all of the fantastic features that were found in its predecessor, like the SD card slot, the 3.5mm audio connection, the brilliant display (which is now even brighter!), and the front-facing stereo speakers. An impressive accomplishment in and of itself is the fact that Sony was able to fit a larger battery inside of this chassis that is just slightly smaller, in addition to the required coils for the wireless charging technology.

The periscope camera that had two different focal lengths (70mm and 105mm) has been replaced with a normal 60mm telephoto that has the equivalent of 2.5x optical zoom. This is the bad news. The retail package is very sparse, as Sony has gone green to the extreme (there is neither a charger nor a cable included), but other than that, we are dealing with a genuinely reliable tiny flagship device. Let’s plunge in!
