Mr Magma, 05 May 2020A51 $270. A41 $300? Lolwww.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_a41-10138.php
Anonymous, 05 May 2020SD6xx series have been used on 200 dollar phones since 2016. SD7xx series like the SD720/730G... morethat prices only applies to brands who sell only online like xiaomi and realme which lack of physical stores and service centers near you. Even oppo and vivo sell sd 6xx starts around ~$300 check vivo like V19, V17pro, V15pro, V11pro and even new oppo A92 sd6xx starting from $280
There are so many phones boasting about their raw performance,huge RAM,4 cameras (out of those usually 1/2 are useless anyway),display cutouts.
But how many phones are in market with IP rating,OLED display,GG6,Stock UI.
Sure Chinese phones provide better performance per dollar for a phone but they operate mostly on software services like selling private data,Adds in System UI,Locking bootloader to trap you forever to force customers to use their Softwares.along with cheap/recycled hardware they can offer sililar pwrformance to a proper flagship at a much cheaper prices.
Brands like sony cant do that,thats why they are expensive.
It is important to note that Sony is one of the most ethical brands in the world currently so they are far better than chinese phonemakers that use shady marketing tricks.
In the end its good to have such a unique product in the market that is alrady dilled with more or less similarly equiped phones under different brand names.
Its upto users that whether they want absolute performance targeted at crowd or a unique & professional device.
Device is made according to the taste of Japanese, not Chinese nor Indian ppl.
It is easier to make phone cheaper when you recicle parts, change 1 component and sell as new model.
At least Sony is not the one shipping phones with microUSB nor without NFC.
Samsung A41 = 300 euros
- Plastic body
- depth instead of 2x zoom
- mono speaker
- no ip rating

Shui8, 05 May 2020Like i said, on mid ranger pricing segment, people dont care about any IP rating, GG, etc. but... moreSo, you ve seen 10 mark II performing already?
Does it stutter or what?
What kind of performance, most people are supposedly into, are you talking about?
Do common people walk into a store and ask upfront what SoC does a phone have? No.
There are market segments.
Not everybody is into heavy gaming like teenagers, but care for example ip, audio, video, camera, browsing performance of their phones...
I dont see this SoC being nowhere near bad at that kind of performance...
Its a good midrange SoC with a weaker gpu, for people not into phone heavy gaming anyways.
But here we go again, being blind to all other good aspects this phone brings for the price, and talking about the SoC only.
Tell you what, why dont we wait for the video review and see if it stutters or freezes or sth.... okeish?
Tann Hauser, 05 May 2020Nah, plain audio, no nfcs, no ip ratings, GGlass 4 and HD lcds are found in your 150 buck devices. Thank you, someone with real common sense.
It’s gonna be around 368 eur in europe, it seems...still cheaper that iphone se, which is around 508 eur with taxes in my country...
Tann Hauser, 05 May 2020No offense, but what is exactly blind to you?
I pointed out pros and cons for the price.
An... moreLike i said, on mid ranger pricing segment, people dont care about any IP rating, GG, etc. but rather great performance for the price. All that reserve for flagship pricing segment. Sony need to understand consumers market needs, or else it will be the same story again, which sales worsen each year.
I wish Sony to succeeds, like the old days. I dont know about you, but these pricing & specs strategy for Xperia 10ii, wont be in good sales, when competition is much higher out there.
Kek, 05 May 2020You must be really on drugs if you thing 665 is low end. WTF is wrong with your mind?
6xx s... moreSD6xx series have been used on 200 dollar phones since 2016.
SD7xx series like the SD720/730G isn't premium mid range, it is used on 200-300$ smartphones.
Anyways, photo samples and the "night mode" look quite good
Anonymous, 05 May 2020At 400 dollars with last year's flagships, you are getting SD855 with better cameras, better s... moreLast years flagships... facepalm fella.
No offense, thats a ridiculous comment...
... As that comment stands true for any chinese, korean, american or japanese midranger released this year.
With three year old flagships you get much, much more than anything midrange you are holding right now, for a third of the price...
How does that sound?
Anonymous, 05 May 2020A 665, usually found in 150 dollar devices is acceptable for 350 one. God.. Sony Fanboys are s... moreAh yes, the 150$ argument that only applies to the Xiaomi Mi A3, which couldnt even get a proper good Android 10 upgrade. a "good" way to spend your money lol

6xx series has always been midrange.
8xx series is high end
4xx series is low midrange
2xx series is low
and the new 7xx series is just premium midrange/cheap high end, whatever way you like calling it. It doesnt means 7xx will substitute 6xx in the midrange world.
