Tim Ned, 17 Sep 2020Sony are definitely the best in smartphone industry.. nice one Sony ✌️👍👍You are right, but users dosent support your opinion, billions of users... We must be all fools why we dont buy Sony devices anymore like 4,5 years before... Or mabey... 😏
Shanti Dope, 17 Sep 2020Incoming hatred comments: "Oh now it doesn't have 4K screen? Sony sucks!!!" ... moreObviously still not the year you learned that mp is nothing.! Sensor and optics is what counts.! Why do you think most of the professional real cameras, only have 20mp? And not 108+, like some smartphones. Hmm
€900 ≠ $950.
€900 = $1062!
The same smartphone will be roughly $100 more expensive for Europeans than for Americans. Where is this EQUALITY when it is needed?
L.O.R.D, 17 Sep 2020Indeed, this is the best phone they made so far, with the classy, beautiful and timeless Sony ... more100% agree, steep price but I'd pick this phone over any other phone in this price range. It checks of every box and then some e.g. I bet that 4000 mAh battery will last two days or more for most people, especially true if you use stamina mode.
ItsNick, 17 Sep 2020Why doesn't Sony use their popular 48, 64 mp sensors that they sell proudly to other OEMs... moreIf they used such sensors, then they wouldn't be any different from other OEMs.
Also, Quad Bayer sensors don't really work like magic. Not only are they incredibly SLOW at capturing, but the amount of unnecessary pixels are wasted just for a bare improvement that software can easily compensate today.
12MP with a large sensor means larger individual pixels, which means greater low light capabilities.
No wonder why Samsung's 108MP sensors suck in low light, and also fail very hard at capturing fast-moving subjects due to slow capturing times.
The 1 II and 5 II can perform 20fps burst with continuous AF like what their A9II can, and that's only possible with lower resolution sensors.
You see, even Apple is going to stick to 12MP this year, and that's because they also know how high MP sensors are nothing but pure gimmick.
Mirrorless digital cameras have lower resolution sensors, but they still destroy any smartphone camera in pure image quality aspect. That goes to show that megapixels don't mean a thing if other factors are weak.
Its the perfect smartphone.
I will buy one when reducing its pricing next year.
Sony are definitely the best in smartphone industry.. nice one Sony ✌️👍👍

I would be nice but 950 dollars... Damn. Can't beat Oneplus 8 Pro, 3.5 jack is not enough.]
Xperia 1 mk II beat the One plus 8 (which has the same processor as 8 pro)
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2020Design should have been same of 1ii. Not copy of 10ii ... 1ii looks way better. subjective, I think this phone is gorgeous!
In portugal and Spain it´s hard to find....It will remain a niche phone
great phone, too much for me but still worth it. i´ll stick to my Motorola Edge
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2020Xperia 5ii has power/finger scanner as one. Above cam button is google assistent button. ... moreThanks for the info. Probably the extra button can be reassigned like the bixby from samsung.
Why doesn't Sony use their popular 48, 64 mp sensors that they sell proudly to other OEMs? So this means they are actually not so good and Sony knows that?
redmi5a, 17 Sep 2020Compact. No notch. Even bezels. Nice display with HDR and high refresh rate. Flagship chipset.... moreAgree, timeless Sony design, without notch, punch hole, or those cheap looking gradient finishes, or other gimmick features. Just pure brilliance of a device, full of features, this is the perfect phone

Shanti Dope, 17 Sep 2020You go cry there in a corner and just wish for a masterpiece like this to be cheap at $600 pri... moreI see how Sony is popular around the world... I cannot remember when i was seen Sony phone in some store or hands... 😏
