I want to be excited for the Xperia Pro but they need to win me over with SOLID pre-order goodies for me to drop that amount onto that phone (since 1 Mark 2 won't have the US 5G bands).
We're talking headphones, wireless charging pad, fastER-charging cable (apparently Sony, according to their website, isn't going to bundle the 21W charger in the box but I think a 15W or 18W one), and a choice of wireless earbuds, 400GB+ MicroSD card, PS5, OR 4KTV to have me drop $1,400+ on a phone.
That's what I like about Sony.
They don't go for the biggest numbers as some do. 8K? It's not relevant today, so no need to implement it.
They bring things where it matters, and that doesn't necessarily shows on a spec sheet.
Seriously, I've been trying some phones here and there, and to my surprise the one that I always come back for is the Sony.

RAM, storage, cameras, audio etc all the same found on 1 ii.
Just smaller body, 1080p screen and less battery.
They do not plan to cut things like chinese brands do to non-Pro version.
Its time for a new Compact phone with the dimensions of the sharp aquos r2 compact i have the xz1 compact and the r2 compact the rest of the phones are bricks i need a backpack for it
M, 27 Apr 2020Great phone, but to narrow, only 71mm, it should be 74-75.Too narrow? It's just nice. My current phone is 75 cm wide and my thumb struggles to reach the other side of the screen.

I would like my Xperia 5 to to be a bit smaller and have a decent camera hardware ... you can call it wishful thinking ... nothing more.
And we all know Sony is gona milk that corona trend and delay any information and release date as they need to get Xperia 1 II to a point it won't be another disaster with broken firmware.
No point of 8K? No cat, dog, kid or grandma will wait for that. The future of xperia videos is - your memories upscaled on your 8K tv.

Forget the fake rumor spread by a youtuber that says phone has smaller screen and 4GB ram.
Please bring back the compact. I bought the note 10 instead cause it looks like an xperia :) but I wish it to be a tad smaller.
Sony make something that can compete with s10e, a 5.5" 21:9
yuka, 27 Apr 2020No compact, no future.Xperia 5 II rumours can be considered as a new compact in making.
Xperia 5 is same width as iPhone SE 2020, Xperia 5 II could be even tiny bit smaller.

Why would someone there put notch or hole?
We want to use every mm2 screen has.
Something you cant if there is notch, hole or dual edge.

Unless you mean lack of features and or pointless features, in which case you are on the money. Sony seem to make good devices, but not competitive devices. Going forward, I'd advocate make a 5inch, make a 6inch, make a 6.7imch (if you must. Include a decent battery and screen, and make your cameras good (for Sony that should be the easiest bit). Screens need to be decent, but don't have to be 4k. Bezel can be a camera width, or can have a notch if necessary. For backs, if they have to be glass (they don't), make them strong. Processor, whatever Snapdragon have at the top end. C'mon, let the niche be consistent designs, with great specs. Soli, nope. Vibration motor from an Xbox controller, nope. Ability to take a picture of Saturn, nope.

Also you're the first guy I'm facing who said Sony quality is poor lol. I pretty sure you are not talking about build quality.
