Sony Xperia 5 now available, and you can grab some BIG freebies too.

We’ve been tracking this one since the launch. It’s the latest flagship from Sony and you can now go ahead and actually buy the thing.

SIM-free it’s £699 and available in black, blue and grey.


Taking a lot of the goodness from the Xperia 1, it’s a compact, stylish and sleek smartphone design. You can find out all about the Xperia 5 in our overview item here. It includes a 21:9 CinemaWide 6.1″ Full HD+ OLED screen with the Bravia cleverness, a triple lens camera with 12 megapixel sensors and the ability to sync to a PlayStation DualShock 4.

Powered by Android 9 Pie, it’s also available with EE on deals starting at £49 per month or £59 without an upfront fee on a 30GB monthly Essential Plan. If you get the phone before November 4th on that plan or above you’ll get either a PlayStation 4 Bundle and 12 months PlayStation Plus membership, or you can have a PlayStation VR Starter Pack. Your call. The PlayStation 4 bundle is worth £364 and the VR Starter pack is worth £259.99, so a ruddy good deal.

Head here for the EE deal or here to go to the Sony site and find out where else you can buy it.
