Sony Xperia 5 is a must for movie lovers

The days when we just used mobile phones to call, text or play Snake are long gone. We’re demanding more from our mobiles than ever before. Whether it’s on the commute or the couch, our phone screens are becoming our go-to destination for watching high quality streaming or our fave films. That’s where the Sony Xperia 5 excels.

The narrow handset means it sits comfortably in your hand, so you can enjoy high quality streaming content on the move – whether that’s a new release or your latest Netflix addiction.

Check out what happened when we got our hands on the Sony Xperia 5....

What makes the Xperia 5 perfect for movies?

1. Its beautiful 6.1 inch 21:9 CinemaWide HD+ OLED display. The 21:9 aspect ratio is the same as the big screen so you can enjoy films the way they were meant to be seen.

2. Creator mode recreates cinematic colour by emulating the quality of a Sony Master Monitor – so you get to watch films on your Xperia 5 just as the director intended.

3. You can’t enjoy great movies without great sound. Thankfully, the Xperia 5 comes equipped with Dolby Atmos adding 3D surround to any content – from movies and games to podcasts and voice messages.

Cameras ready for the red carpet

If you’re looking to shoot a few pictures of your own, the Xperia 5’s triple lens camera won’t disappoint. It comes equipped with Normal, Tele photo and Super wide lenses, which you’ll find lined up on the back of the phone.

There are some clever features inherited from professional Sony Alpha cameras. The Xperia 5 takes great pictures in low light - thanks to RAW noise reduction.

It also comes equipped with fiendishly clever Eye AF technology, which finds the eyes of whoever you’re taking a picture of and stays focused on them. Plus, Optical SteadyShot means you’ll get great pictures and video without blur.

Speaking of videos, if you fancy yourself as the next Christopher Nolan, Cinema Pro records movies in glorious 4K HDR and is packed with all the settings a film maker needs.

Power with a battery life to match

What keeps your movies, games and apps running smoothly, is the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. And you’ll be able to film or watch more of what you love with the Xperia 5’s fast-charging battery, giving you a 50% charge in 30 minutes.
