Sony doesn’t stand out for making huge changes from one generation to another when it comes to aesthetics. And this Xperia 5 IV is proof of this when we find a almost identical design to its predecessor. Its aesthetic pattern is the same, although its dimensions vary slightly and its weight grows somewhat.

Nor do we see excessive variation in its 6.1-inch OLED display. This is still the protagonist on the front, although with the already characteristic upper and lower bezels of previous generations. It includes FullHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate to provide greater fluidity in system navigation and consumption of multimedia content (including video games).

However, it surprises once again Sony allowing expand space up to 1TB with microSD card. And we say that it is surprising that this compatibility with external storage cards in high-end mobiles is not so common.

As far as battery is concerned, this Sony Xperia 5 IV points ways with a 5,000mAh capacity which should be sufficient even in intensive use, although without having tried it yet we cannot attest to it. Also say that compatibility with Wireless charging and 30W fast wired charging.

We already entered the photographic field talking about all their cameras have 12 megapixels, including the selfie camera on the front and the main, wide-angle and telephoto camera on the back. All this with technologies inherited from Alpha series camerassuch as object tracking.

Other sections to highlight and that give ease in the multimedia section are its stereo speakers and Dolby Atmos sound. Also your 5G connectivity It is a point in favor, as well as its almost unchanged software compared to pure Android, having a version comparable to Android 12.
