Answer: No. Can a magnetic field propagate thru aluminum? Answer: Yes. I just tested it using a small magnet, and ice cream scoop (aluminum) and a steel butter knife. I must admit, until I thought about it, I was concerned about aluminum blocking magnetic fields myself.
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2020If someone wants a new decent compact phone, there is very little out there these days.It is bigger than Galaxy S7.
Nothing compact here.
Compact are iphone 5 and xperia xz1c ....
What a joke, SD765 @ 52k
not everyone wants latest specs and a mini tv in the pocket. was waiting for expiria 5II to be a proper compact, but was so dissapointed to find out otherwise. all i need is a good screen, fast and reliable software without bloatware, a good camera when i need it, and a size that actually fits in my pocket. i really don't need a fingerprint scanner (i always use a pin), but if there is one, the backside is the best location for it.
sure, it is a bit expensive, but other than that, is the phone i wanted. and considering that i preordered it, i get a bose headset 230 -280£ worth. that brings it to around 400£. not that expensive anymore

Someone please put light on it. Thanks in advance.

So what you are saying is, that you are unable to use eBay? or whatever buyer/seller site is available in your region?
compactitor, 01 Oct 2020xperia 5 iiCheck the dimensions. Xperia 5 II is too tall to call it compact.
If it was 150mm at max, that would be an option.
Finally, someone got the job done correctly. The price tag is still around 15% higher than expected, but this is what an excellent package should be like.

I can totally agree on the price. for 699 dollar or currently 613 Euro in germany for the given specs, it is indeed overpriced. But like mentioned before, if you pre-order the phone right now at least here in germany, you get a pair of Bose QS35 II, which are roughly 200-250 euros. They are pretty good, if you want to keep them or sell them, is up to you.
By selling them simply, the price of the phone goes down to 400 Euro, which is in competition to the Oneplus Nord.
What you get for that mentioned 400 Euro, is not a useless glass sandwich, rather a full aluminium bodied phone, which these days is rare to get at all, paired with a the highest midrange chipset with 5G, if you care for that, a 6"inch 90Hz display, which is pretty much welcome against much bigger displays for many people, no moving parts, a simple no bullshit camera setup with decent sensors and enough RAM.
Yes, i wished for a 2nd option for a 256GB storage capacity and maybe a microSD slot and that they keep the jack from the cheaper version, but overall it is a simple phone with all necessary feature nowadays and a clean software experience.
Heck even with the full alu body, you still get wireless charging, which is much appreciated.
And while all the flagships put in under display fingerprint, a good 'oldschool' fingerprint sensor on the back is faster and more reliable still.
What you get overall, is a durable, smaller phone, while maintaining a rather big battery for the size, wireless charging, 90Hz refresh rate, simple software experience with 3 years of software updates and a simple design on the outside.
Some simply prefer this over a oneplus or the older pixel phones with kinda useless features like soli.
Just not for 600-700, that's the only point i can agree on. Everyone able to get the device as pre-order with the bose headphones should go for it, if you are interested.
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2020If compare new phones, pixel 5 is a cheaper chipset 765, poor fast changing,18w price is high U should respect their great camera sofrware and premium google services
