Sony Xperia 5 III Review

Score: 90.5 / 100

Sony Xperia 5 III is a top-level device launched some years ago, with a very fast Octa-Core processing unit running at 2840 MHz, a large 6.1-inches display, a 12 megapixels back camera and an 8 mega-pixels front facing camera. We will get a better idea about this cellphone's pros when we get into deeper details.

This phone is available in 3 color options, black, green and pink. This time, it seems like Sony forgot about weight optimization in this 5.96 oz cellphone. This device body design is a combination of Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 6) and Metal . The Sony Xperia 5 III is only 6.18 inches long, but it's still able to fit a a 6.1" screen. The Sony Xperia 5 III is slim and comfortable, with a thickness of just 0.32".

Sony decided to build this cellphone using a high performance 2840 megahertz Octa-Core processor, packed into the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SM8350 chip and a large 8 GB of RAM. A good advantage of the Sony Xperia 5 III is its big 256 GB internal storage and a slot for an external memory card, allowing you to install hundreds of applications and even the heaviest games currently available without having to worry about how much storage is left.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 12 megapixels back-facing camera and an 8 megapixels front-facing camera. the Sony Xperia 5 III's back-facing camera lens has an aperture of 1.7 so it can capture excellent photos even in poorly lit environments. It is also able to shoot 4K 3840x2160 videos at 120 frames per second, and slow-motion videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) up to 240 fps (8 times slower than reality).

Sony equipped this device with a gorgeous 6.1-inches screen, and a resolution of 1080 x 2520 , which makes all images and videos look perfect.

The Sony Xperia 5 III provides Wi-Fi capability (and it can be shared with other devices as a mobile hotspot), 5G ultra high bandwidth connection type, LTE-A 4G , the fastest connection type and 3G fast data connection, supported by HSPA technologies. This cellphone works with a Nano SIM card for GSM carriers.

This cellphone counts with a 4500 mAh long lasting Nano SIM non-removable battery, enough to provide this device with a marvelous battery life. An issue to evaluate is that this cellphone's battery is not replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to lose its charge, while with this big battery you will probably buy a new phone before that becomes an issue.

This phone also comes with many cool features such as Fingerprint ID, Facial recognition biometrics, Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth (5.2 ) and GPS Geolocation, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Gyroscope.

No matter if you love photography, are looking for a social phone, will use it as a work phone or are looking for a phone for gaming, you will definitely be very satisfied with this cellphone.
