Hanif Fikri, 06 Sep 2020Thats lame comparisonwell, it is as lame as comparison of this phone to that of poco...
buying lots of poco will not give you what 5 II can or even any flagship from major manufacturers...
Shanti Dope, 06 Sep 2020As if there's one who would buy an F2 Pro for $300 in 2021 LMAO!!
You trolls are truly... more"who would buy an F2 Pro for $300 in 2021"
Are u kidding? 300$ SD865 is super affordable for those who cant afford the upcoming SD875 at 800$+.
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2020Won't be less than 900 Euros. Well, 900€ is less than the 1300€+ others are asking for their "flagships" with critical missing features...
- Fast SoC (SD865) = CHECK
- 3.5mm headphone jack = CHECK
- STEREO Speakers = CHECK
- OLED hi-quality 120Hz screen = CHECK
- SDCARD slot for 1TB expansion (music libray on the go anywhere) = CHECK
- min. 4000mAh battery = CHECK
- triple cam, good quality, with OIS = CHECK
- IP68 water resistant = CHECK
- NFC (for contactless functions) = CHECK
- 3 years of guaranteed OS updates = CHECK
Nothing else, except a couple of LG models, come even close. This is flagship level features, not removed and missing features (*cough* Samsung, One+, Realme, Xiaomi, Google, Apple ... *cough*)
Most likely my next phone, if the price is right.
Please make these SONY phones available in INDIA.... missing them too much
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2020Pixel introduced? Xperias had Object tracking in both photo and video since forever but like a... moreGoogle might not introduced Object Tracking but made it really useful contrary to Sony. I still prefer Google Pixel Object Tracking system over Sony Eye Focusing. Anyway, I won't buy Xperia 5 II just because of missing TOF sensor. Having hard times for 5 month with Xperia 5 and its disappointing focusing system and camera app overall, I believe that Xperia 5 II will be no different.
"The Xperia 5 II can shoot slow-motion 4K videos in 120fps, offers burst shooting with AF at up to 20 frames per second..."
Doesn't look any different from the camera performance in Xperia 1 ii. Sounds like great news to me.
Funny this I shared this link before GSMArena and it got removed??
"MADE COMPACT" - LOL!
I'm kinda considering buying a flagship this year, and I'm somewhat deciding between Xperia 5 II and Galaxy S20... The main reason why I'm hesitating with the Xperia 5 II is... Because it's way too damn large! I mean SHEESH whoever thought it would be reasonable to advertise this phone as "compact", I'd like some of the stuff they're smoking, it must be a bomb.
Fearghast, 06 Sep 2020Well I did not think of that ... thx for clarification ;) I knew of Alfa and RX series, but I... moreI see on Sony website that main sensor (26mm) is Exmor RS soo it has DRAM but purpose is probably 10fps with Eye tracking but Sony doesnt write that on specification (Xperia 1 spec sheet mention about DRAM). But for 99% Xperia 5 has DRAM because all Exmor RS got it :)

I knew of Alfa and RX series, but I had no idea DRAM was used for burst on second gen Xperia 1/5.
So in that case, only my Xperia 5 lacks DRAm :D
Fearghast, 06 Sep 2020It does not, Sony cut down the costs on DRAM on Xperia 5, 1 II and 5 II. Alfa 9 have DRAM and have 20fps but doesnt have 960fps. RX100m4 have DRAM and have 960fps. That first costs way much and both has Exmor RS (with DRAM). Xperia 1 II does have DRAM (for 20fps burst) but that DRAM have different purpose (read all pixels from sensor not only 1mpx 720p or 2mpx for 1080p). All Exmor RS sensors has DRAM. Exmor R doesnt have DRAM.

Xperias had Object tracking in both photo and video since forever but like all others including Pixel, it can't make a distinction what that object is, is it a car, or is it a living being? The whole point of eye tracking is that now it knows it's a face and the face will be the sharpest thing in the image.
vbrntn, 06 Sep 2020What are hipsters? I don't see any.If you do not see any, is there even a point of explaining?

Sony is back to tha mobile technology top.
Oh my god its so gorgeous, I touch my self :)
But seriously its amazing that they put in this body 4000mAh, 120Hz screen and 120fps 4K HDR. Its unbelivable. World first 4K 120p HDR recording in smarpthone. Sony!
