Sony brings back the compact phone with the Xperia 5

Sony has taken to IFA 2019 to reveal its next compact flagship phone, and there's a new name involved as it's called the Xperia 5.This isn't a follow-up to the Xperia 1, instead it sits almost alongside in a similar way to the 'Xperia Compact' variants Sony used to produce alongside its flagship devices.
The Xperia 5 isn't as compact as some may have been expecting, but we've tried out the phone at IFA 2019 to share our first impressions of the latest Sony Android device.

OS and Specs:

Sony has confirmed Android 9 Pie is the main software for the Xperia 5, but we can safely assume the company is pushing to get the newly released Android 10 software onto the device.
Under the hood is the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset - the same chip that's in the Xperia 1. It's paired with 6GB of RAM, and in our short amount of testing time it seemed to load up apps quickly without any wait.

There's 128GB of storage on the phone as standard, which you can extend by up to 512GB more with a microSD card.

A nice feature Sony has included on the Xperia 5 is support for its PlayStation DualShock 4 controller. It means you're able to wirelessly connect the controller to the handset, giving you much better control over the action on screen versus the touch buttons.
