The Sony XPERIA 5 IV Dual-SIM 128GB 5G Smartphone adds desired features from the last generation, while expanding on what made the XPERIA 5 III popular. With the XPERIA 5 IV, you will enjoy a 6.1" FHD+ 120 Hz OLED display that's 50% brighter than the previous generation and the ability to recharge wirelessly. These new features come alongside significant upgrades to the rear camera system that makes the XPERIA 5 IV a pocket photography powerhouse. Now, all lenses can achieve 120 fps slow-motion video in 4K, real-time tracking & Eye AF in video, 20 fps burst in HDR, and more. On the audio side, Music Pro support lets audio pros record tracks on the go. With these and other new capabilities, Sony continues to prove that access to professional content creation is possible in a compact and mobile design.

Rear Camera System
Like the previous generation, the XPERIA 5 IV features a triple 12MP rear camera system with 16mm ultra-wide, 24mm wide, and 60mm telephoto lenses. These lenses are all equipped with the ability to record 120 fps slow-motion video at up to 4K resolution. All of the lenses are also capable of the following:
  • Real-time Eye AF
  • Real-time object tracking
  • 20 fps AF/AE burst photography with HDR
  • Object tracking and Eye AF in video
  • Wide dynamic range
  • Live streaming

Expanding on the above features, real-time object tracking uses AI to follow and focus on a subject and will keep tracking it, even if it temporarily moves out of sight. Burst photography rapidly grabs multiple images of a moment, so you can pick the best expression and composition. Also, when live streaming, you can do this directly from the XPERIA 5 IV using Videography Pro, or from your Alpha camera when using the XPERIA 5 IV as an external monitor.
High-End Audio
The audio on the XPERIA 5 IV has been tuned in collaboration with Sony Music and uses a host of technologies to deliver high-end mobile sound. When using a wired or wireless pair of headphones, you an experience Hi-Res Audio transmission, or you can choose to experience music in a more immersive sound space with 360 Reality Audio. Other acoustic features include DSEE Ultimate upmixing, Dolby Atmos support for more cinematic mobile streaming, and Music Pro support for high-end mobile recording.

  • 360 Reality Audio: 360 Reality Audio completely immerses you in your music, making you feel like you're in the room with the artist. Tracks can be found on Tidal, Amazon Music, and other streaming services, but you can also upscale your favorite stereo tracks in real time with 360 Reality Audio Upmix.
  • Music Pro: Music Pro utilizes cloud processing on your tracks to make it sound like they were recorded in a studio using a condenser microphone. With the phone, you get the first month of this subscription service for free with up to 100MB of processing to try it out.
  • DSEE Ultimate: Utilizing DSEE Ultimate, AI can upscale your lower resolution audio to close to high resolution levels for a more enjoyable experience.
Elite Mobile Gaming
Gamers and game streamers don't have to suffer when away from their consoles and PCs. Both will enjoy the ability to stream games with PS Remote Play, or play on the phone with smooth gameplay at 120 Hz, fast 240 Hz motion blur reduction, and a responsive 240 Hz touch scanning rate. The XPERIA 5 IV also offers low gamma raiser, audio equalizer, and voice chat optimization to complete the experience. Streamers will benefit from additional features catering to their platform, such as 120 Hz R.T. recording, an audio mixer, voice changer, and screen burst.
Additional Features
  • Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 mobile platform
  • 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space
  • Front 12MP selfie camera
  • Large 5000mAh battery

Sony Xperia 5 IV Reviews

Excellent Battery lift

By George
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2023-01-13

Was using my Xperia 1 III for almost a year. Love everything about it but battery life is one of the main reasons i made the change to 5 IV. Bulid quality of the 5 IV is very similar to the 1 series but the battery life is just way better. The difference is day/night. I couldn't get past 1 day without charging my 1 III but i was able to go more than 1 and a half day without charging it. Very happy that i made the switch.

Compact Android

It's the most compact Android that is physical dual sim/sd card that works with Verizon, and works with c band. Fingerprint is way better than it was on the 5 III. I don't even use the camera much, I just wanted the form factor and as a result of such, I've been using Sony phones since the z5 compact. The screen is great. Yes, it gets warm, but I believe the updates have made it better?? It could just be because the ambient temperature is getting cooler outside by the day too? I use it to do food delivery and the screen is always on and running multiple apps. I have no big deal breaking complaints. Side note- gps signal is more accurate than on my pixel 6a. Signal strength is on par with most phones, it may be a few less db, but I haven't lost service anywhere. If I never did, I'd just switch to my other sim! Love Sony!

Purchase on Black Frday for $800 + Free WF-1000XM4 Earbuds (value $180.00) and for that value I definitely recommend this phone. Pros: Great Battery Life (5000mah) Micro SD card Expansion 120hz screen Cons: Doesn't not include 30watts charger nor usb c cable Sometimes playing game when the phone gets hot drops frame. Coming from a Z Fold 3 & S10e they get hotter but rarely dropped frames. I've been Galaxy user since Note 5 and always loved S-Pen experience. My last Galaxy phone was the Z Fold 3 and I loved the experience & technology. But after a year of usage the inner screen it started showing dead circle pixel and the warranty already expired. After spending almost 2k on the phone that didn't last a year I didn't really wanted to spend more then 1K on a phone. Then saw this deal on XPERIA 5 IV For $800 and went ahead & tried it. So far loving it.

Gotta say, B&H delivered fast, fast, fast! One of the few authorized Sony dealers in America I actually trust. As far as the phone, it's replacing my Galaxy Fold 4 and my One Plus 10 Pro alternate. Tired of the gimmicks and novelty and what everybody else has and just want an amazing phone that feels great in the hand and isn't Apple, Google, or Samsung. No overheating issues so far and the camera is easier to use than the reviews make it out to be. Am sticking with Sony and B&H.

Near perfect phone

By Matthew
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-12-01

This is a (nearly) perfect phone for me because it has 3 things: 1) 3.5mm Headphone jack 2) 16mm, 24mm, and 60mm (12MP) equivalent lenses (w/ high-end Sony quality video and camera app! RAW, 4K, Advanced DSLR-like features, etc.) 3) USB-C (USB 3.1) with support for workstation docking (keyboard/video/mouse) Other niceties include: - Wireless Qi charging - IP56/IP68 dust/water resistance - Bright and colorful OLED screen - 120hz screen refresh rate (buttery smooth!) - Snapdragon 8 Gen1 SoC (8 cores) w/ 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage - 2 nanoSIM slots and 1 microSD card slot (supports upto 1TB) - Snappy biometric (fingerprint) unlock - 5G phone network (with 4G/LTE, 3G, and 2G) - WiFi6E network support (yes, it does the new 6Ghz band, too!) - 5000 mAh battery! - Dedicated shutter release button (with half-press focus lock, like a camera!) - WiFi texting via the standard Google Messages app, but... Unfortunately, there are 2 things about it that I was disappointed to discover: 1) No WiFi calling. From what I've read on the Internet, this is actually the fault of the carrier (Verizon, T-Mobile, et al.), but Sony seems to get the blame. It's not a deal breaker for me, but for some folks who make a lot of phone calls and don't have good cell tower coverage, this could really make life tough. 2) Thermal management really is mediocre. Or rather, this phone does get warm from time to time. While I don't play games on my phone, I have noticed that using the video recording and the phone app extensively will get this phone rather warm. Otherwise, it is a normal temperature.

Terribly buggy

By Richard
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2023-01-10

I had used the Sony Xperia 1 II a while back and was extremely happy with it, so I was excited about getting my hands on the Xperia 5 IV because it seemed to have little-to-no compromises on features (3 cameras, wireless charging, shutter button, headphone jack, giant battery, and a premium processor) in a much more compact/easy-to-hold form factor. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this device to anyone as the user interface has been dreadfully buggy. The keyboard closes while typing and will not re-open for an enormous length of time. Media playback will abruptly interrupt and lose track of position (this is not app or network related either, as it will also occur on locally stored media on various apps). Bluetooth connectivity misbehaves at times, as well to top things off. It has all the bells and whistles I could ask for in a perfectly sized package, but its general performance in everyday usage makes me want to pull my hair out and is ultimately a deal breaker for me. A shame because this phone cost a quite a bit and I'm not keen on spending more to replace it, but I'm going to have to as I don't think I can tolerate it for much longer.

I've discovered a few workarounds for the Xperia's flaws

By Matt
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-12-30

Let's be honest, Sony. The main reason we are interested in this phone is because it has a 3.5mm headphone jack and a micro-SD slot for expandable storage. If Sony removes either of those two features in future releases, then I wouldn't buy this phone. The irony is that if you bought this phone around Black Friday of 2022 from B&H Photo, it came with free Sony wireless earbuds, which were a nice gift, but I want the ability to plug-in my old-school headphones without any adapters. It's also ironic that this phone is priced as a flagship device, but most of us buy the Xperia for its legacy features like the headphone jack. Xperia's do NOT include the latest and greatest bells and whistles (more on that later), but one blast-from-the-past feature that I love is the notification LED on the front of the phone, which blinks when you step away from your phone and have missed calls or texts. No, I don't want to use the "always-on displays" that other phones offer, which kills battery life. The selfie cam and LED are on the top edge of the phone, clearly above and separated from the screen, which is much better than the iPhone's idiotic "Dynamic Island", which takes a chunk of screen real estate and literally leaves a black hole blocking your view of certain apps and games. Credit Sony for proper selfie camera placement. Let's address the Xperia flaws and workarounds I've discovered: 1) No WiFi Calling for Verizon in the US. I almost returned this phone because it lacked this feature and I live in a dead zone. However, here's the fix that worked for me. Call Verizon and ask them to ship you an LTE Network Extender. It's like a cable modem that must sit close to a window (for a satellite signal) and plug into your wireless router with an ethernet cable. After I got it, I have no more dropped or choppy calls with the Xperia and I have 5 full bars throughout my home. Other Android phones have a feature called "HD Voice" where you can enable it to connect to the Network Extender, but with the Xperia, the feature can't be enabled or disabled. It's always on and will work great. Another tip is Verizon tried to force me to pay for the Network Extender, but when I refused and threatened to cancel my service, they agreed to ship it to me for free as loaner device as long as I continue to have service with them. Problem 1 solved. 2) Another problem with the Xperia is that my face would frequently and accidentally hit the mute or "end call" buttons when I was talking on the phone. No other reviewers complained about this issue, and I've never had any problems with any older Android phones. The fix: I bought a 3rd party app from Google Play called "True Phone." It is a custom dialer (another reason I choose Android over Apple), which allows users to customize the location and size of the mute and "end call" buttons, among other very useful features. It was a one time $10 cost for the app to remove all ads. I configured the ongoing call buttons to be much smaller and lower on the screen now, and I no longer mute myself by accident. 3) Sony already updated the Xperia 5 IV to Android 13 in December 2022. However, they thought it would be a good idea to make the default accent color a pastel pink, which looked truly disgusting compared to the colors of Android 12. To change the color back, go to Android Settings Wallpaper Wallpaper & style Basic Colors Blue. Now, other Android phones will give you a dozen color options or so to choose from, which is called "Material You", which is not available on the Xperia. Sony only allows you to pick light blue or cotton-candy barf pink. This leads me to the next topic. The Xperia offers bare bones Android 13, which is good and bad. It's good because there isn't really much bloatware. I don't want to be forced to use Bixby, like on Samsung devices. The Xperia has a few preinstalled apps like Facebook and LinkedIn that can be uninstalled or disabled. However, Sony refuses to implement a lot of advanced features that I previously thought automatically come with Android, such as: a) No ability to pick a custom volume level for each app. b) No ability to control the intensity of haptic feedback. It's either on or off. c) No ability to change the default volume settings. The default volume (if you press the volume buttons on the phone) is always "Media volume", so if you want to change the "Ring volume", you have to press the physical volume button, then press the three dots on the screen to show other volume options, then adjust the "Ring Volume" using a slider. d) No Face Unlock. However, I really like the Xperia fingerprint reader on the side of the phone. It's fast and accurate, especially if you find the Android setting "Remove Animations", which makes the phone fade in from black when it's unlocked. My girlfriend got an iPhone 14 Pro, and I think it's a joke Apple no longer includes fingerprint readers. On the Xperia, you may lightly touch the fingerprint reader to unlock the phone, or it may be used as a dual-purpose button. There's a setting that allows you to use the fingerprint button with your Google Assistant as well, if you press the button a little harder, it makes a click and invokes the Google Assistant, which is really nice. I wish the dedicated physical camera button could be repurposed, but it can't be done as far as I know. Come on, Sony! Let the user decide what happens with that button. Different actions could be setup for a quick click, click & hold, or double click. Currently, its only purpose is to take a phone (which is nice), or long-hold to open the camera app (also nice, but I want more configuration options). That said, some people like the Xperia camera because of its software configuration options, but I haven't had time to learn everything yet. I'm not overly impressed with the "basic" mode. I want to just point and click and let Sony create the best possible picture for me. The basic mode results are just OK. The 5,000 mAh battery seems fantastic, and I often have 30% - 40% remaining by the end of the day despite that I spend too much time playing games on the toilet. That said, any new phone probably seems like an improvement when replacing a 3-year-old phone. Xperia wired charging seems fast. Wireless charging is slow by design to prolong the battery life, but I believe you can change the settings. After I fixed the issue with drop calls, hearing my phone calls are crisp and clear, including the speakerphone. No one has complained they can't hear me well since my fix. I haven't had any issues with the phone overheating, but I kept the default display settings at 60Hz instead of 120Hz, preferring battery life over visual display. The waterproof feature of the Xperia is a huge plus, and I wouldn't buy a phone that lacks this often-overlooked benefit. I have also not been impressed with my first experience with 5G on the Xperia. When I travel and find a 5G zone, it doesn't seem any faster than standard 4G LTE. I think 5G is overhyped. Sony will only support the Xperia 5 IV through Android 15, which seems like a shorter time span than other flagship phones. As of December 2022, the Xperia runs Android 13. The Xperia screen is made from Gorilla Glass Victus, which is supposed to be a more durable upgrade from my previous phone that had Gorilla Glass 5. However, the screen feels soft, which seemed nice as first, but I've already noticed minor scratches that wouldn't have happened with my previous phone. My final tip is to buy a Spigen case for the Xperia phone, which I've used on this phone and others for years. I've never cracked a phone screen even though I've dropped my phones hundreds of times. I've tried other cases, but Spigen is the only case that gives the satisfying "clicks" when you press the phone's physical buttons. It fits the Xperia like a glove. The only drawback is Spigen cases only come in the color black for niche phones like the Xperia. Finally, I want to give a shout out to B&H Photo. I almost returned this phone because it lacked WiFi calling, but I discovered the fix that I mentioned above. B&H customer service was easy to contact, and they would have accepted my returned my phone with free shipping for a full refund. In the end, I'm glad I kept this phone and will continue to shop on B&H.
