Sony Xperia 5 Mark 5 is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and fortunately, developers ported the Pixel Camera app to work with this chipset and software on the Xperia 5 V. Needless to say, the Xperia phones already offer the best photography apps on any smartphones.

The smartphone comes with three camera apps – Photography Pro, Video Pro, and Cinema Pro. All three apps work fine and capture nice photos. Yes, the photo quality is great in every condition. This year, Sony introduced Night Mode and it works fine, but isn’t as good as the Pixel Camera’s app.
