Sony Xperia 5: The final verdict
Sony was my favorite company but these days, this company trying to making us fool. This phone has a really good display and this display justifies the pricing. The processors are good and cameras are decent but Sony smartphones are waste without the 3.5mm jack and what’s the point of using 8 MP front sensor? This phone is not good for the pricing and I am giving the kick to this phone because this is damn overpriced!
