Android.Master, 17 Sep 2020Despite all that therotical garbage about sensor requiring less time, images are still behind ... moreBetter than the plastic scene photos from OP8 Pro/Find X2 Pro.
Despite having much smaller sensor.
Almost 50% smaller.
Not even the Xperia C I had (low end from 2013) turns world into plastic ..
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2020Why not just give $400 discount instead of all that worthless junk?Agreed
How to make preorder please?
Shanti Dope, 17 Sep 2020Uhmm, that's exactly what I'm pointing out lol.
Chill, I'm on your side 😉Can't wait to see comments demanding Sony to charge same price asked for phones like redmi k30, galaxy A51, pixel 4a etc ...
Always funny ...

They need to improve on that.

verden.kma, 17 Sep 2020€900 ≠ $950.
€900 = $1062!
The same smartphone will be roughly $100 more expensive for Euro... moretry this:
950 usd x 1.2 = 1140 usd
1140 usd = app 965 eur
you see, the VAT (tax on added value) in eu is app 20%, (different for country to country, 16% to 22%) hence the 950 x 1.2...., vs (usually) 0% in usa for on-line commerce.
actually, the phones price correspondence usd to eur is usually 1: 1.
AnonD-940827, 17 Sep 2020So basically the same power and performance? I use my phone for editing tool and gaming. Yep. The same great performance that only dedicated gaming phones can match and defeat.

Remote control, you say? At least it's not a curvy candy bar that's so slippery and with unnecessary curved screen that distorts the contents to the side. From practicality standpoint, this is already miles better than anything else.

Davy Jones, 17 Sep 2020And the phone of the year award goes to Xperia 5 iiDon't think it can win phone of the year award.
But it is a great offering in terms of a compact smartphone despite the lack of ultra fast charging.
Way better than iPhone SE 2020 & Pixel series if one is looking for a compact phone. Definitely a contender for compact smartphone of the year.
AnonD-940827, 17 Sep 2020Obviously still not the year you learned that mp is nothing.! Sensor and optics is what counts... moreUhmm, that's exactly what I'm pointing out lol.

ItsNick, 17 Sep 2020Why doesn't Sony use their popular 48, 64 mp sensors that they sell proudly to other OEMs... moreSensors capture light and turn it into info.
Each sensor does this task at different speed.
Lower MP count increases the speed this task is done.
This is how phone can do 20fps burst adjusting focus and exposure 3x per frame.
This would be impossible with 48, 64 or 108MP.
For example the HM1 of S20 Ultra. At 12MP mode, sensor needs 32ms to read all data captured as light. While at 108MP, it needs 100ms.
The imx557 of Xperia needs 10ms to do same.
It is the reason sports cameras are 20 or 24MP, while other cameras use 40, 60 or more.
But why sports cameras do same with more resolution than this phone? Because Full Frame sensors are much stronger. The imx310 used by Alpha 9 is also used by Sony Venice videocameras (used by Sony Pictures).
900 Euro is too much for this tiny little remote control looking phone. Screen should be at least 60mm wide.
Amazing Smartphone but the price
ItsNick, 17 Sep 2020Thanks for enlighting.No worries buddy ☺️
