ByAdan Flannigan 2019-09-06 2093

Sony has presented its new range of products to start the IFA 2019 in Berlin. The Japanese manufacturer has presented all kinds of products, highlighting two models in particular, its new Sony WI-1000 XM2 Bluetooth headset, and the new Sony Xperia 5 phone. A new member for the smartphone family of the Japanese firm. But how is it different from the Sony Xperia 1?

Sony Xperia 5 vs Sony Xperia 1

Sony Xperia 5 vs Sony Xperia 1: design

On an aesthetic level, we hardly notice changes between the Sony Xperia 5 and the Sony Xperia 1. Both terminals look like those frames so characteristic of the Japanese manufacturer's solutions. In addition, the fingerprint reader is located on the side, making the difference with respect to the vast majority of rivals.

Sony Xperia 5 vs Sony Xperia 1: size

However, there are two details that allow us to differentiate the Sony Xperia 5 from the Sony Xperia 1: the position of the triple camera system, in addition to the dimensions. The new phone presented at IFA 2019 has a much more measured size compared to the terminal presented at MWC 2019. In this way, we go from 67 x 72 x 8.2 mm to 158 x 68 x 8.2 mm.

Sony Xperia 5 vs Sony Xperia 1: screen

Although, it is quite logical, more if we consider that the screen of the Sony Xperia 5 "only" measures 6.1 inches, while its big brother has a panel of 6.7 inches. In both cases, we find a panel with high quality OLED technology, but the Sony Xperia 1 offers much better resolution: QHD+ with HDR10 support, while the Xperia 5 remains FullHD+.

Sony Xperia 5 vs Sony Xperia 1: hardware

There are also two phones with the best hardware on the market: a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, along with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, which we can expand through its miroSD card slot.

Sony Xperia 5 vs Sony Xperia 1: battery

Where if we see changes in this comparison of the Sony Xperia 5 compared to the Sony Xperia 1 is in the battery. The new model reduces from 3,330 mAh to 3,140 mAh. Something to look forward to and that won't hinder the experience of use. More than anything because your screen requires fewer resources.

Sony Xperia 5 vs Sony Xperia 1: camera

Note that on the paper we find a photographic section traced between one model and another. In this way, both the camera of the Sony Xperia 5, and the Sony Xperia 1, opt for a triple lens system consisting of a first sensor of 12 megapixels, a second wide angle of 12 megapixels and a telephoto lens of 12 megapixels.

But in return, Sony's new phone features new technologies. For starters, the Sony Xperia 5 is capable of making faster bursts. In addition, its focus is more precise and CineAlta technology allows you to better adjust certain values. Although, the two new tools that it incorporates, do that their camera surpasses to the one of the Sony Xperia 1.

Sony Xperia 5 vs Sony Xperia 1: price

We're talking about Photography Advice, a mode that detects if we're going to put our finger on the lens, or if someone's eyes are closed before taking a photo. And the other big news is Eye AF. A technology seen in its range of Alpha cameras, and that allows you to follow at all times the eyes of the person you are recording so that it is always in focus. We'll have to wait to find out the price of the Sony Xperia 5, because what we've seen so far has been really interesting.
