jamalu96, 17 Sep 2020Sony did had 1/3 inch sensors with autofocus lens in their midrange smartphones back in 2016.... moreIphone notch is vertically bigger than sony bezel.
It does 4K because of 12MP, not size.
You can make a 1/5" with 20MP and offer 5K video.
a, 17 Sep 2020Ive check it, and they definetly should upgrade selfie camIt's a pure trash on my Xperia 5. Luckily it's good enought for my duo call.
Xperia 1, 5, 1 II are using the same sensor, Xperia 5 II won't be any different.
jamalu96, 17 Sep 2020coz that 13MP cameras had a large 1/3 inch sensor and autofocus lens.
The problem with that... moreBezel is much smaller.
It cannot fit the 13MP 1/3" anymore.
You can give congratulations to everyone that have spent years complaining about bezels.
You now choose between crappy front cam or screen without cutouts.
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2020When Sony brought 13MP front cam with M5/C5 ppl said it was not necessary.
That 5MP used by ... morecoz that 13MP cameras had a large 1/3 inch sensor and autofocus lens.
The problem with that tiny 8MP sensors is they cannot shoot 4K videos.
it's a shame they are downgrading their selfie cameras.
REDROBOT, 17 Sep 2020First check 8 mp on xperia then talkSony did had 1/3 inch sensors with autofocus lens in their midrange smartphones back in 2016.
Now they are using 1/4 inch sensor with fixed focus lens.
There is no excuses for using cheaper cameras with their huge forhead. Even the iPhone have better af lens and 4K60 recording in their notch with the other sensors for face id.
IF they cannot add a better camera or a face authentication, then why should they had that huge forhead in late 2020?
When Sony brought 13MP front cam with M5/C5 ppl said it was not necessary.
That 5MP used by other flagships were enough.
Now same ppl complain about being 8.
Apart from the front camera (which i rarely use to begin with), everything else in this 5ii is awesome.
Its there with the top dogs, with some features that no other phone has.
Shanti Dope, 17 Sep 2020WhatGear has already compared the front cameras of the 1 II to the S20 Ultra and P40 Pro+, and... moreI saw it, its bad.
Better details than S20 Ultra (surprisingly) but fails in everything else (DR, classic Sony overblown highlights, weird color cast emerge in certain situation).
P40 Pro front facing camera are the one to beat. Excellent.
Sorry but i'm using my smartphone (XZ2C) as a communication device, not a console, a camera or whatever gimmick.
When texting, how i am supposed to use a keyboard on such elongated device? Just have a choice between a compressed or an overstretched keyboard. Brilliant!
Can't use it with one hand, doesn't fit in my pocket. Useless.
finally, A complete flagship package from Sony. Hope it comes to India
notafanboy, 17 Sep 2020Too bad it still has a bad selfie camera
Only google with their image processing can get away... moreWhatGear has already compared the front cameras of the 1 II to the S20 Ultra and P40 Pro+, and still it performed comparably well, sometimes even better than the others.
It's definitely not as terrible as you try to think of it.
a, 17 Sep 2020Ive check it, and they definetly should upgrade selfie camThe Xperia 1 II indeed has a crap of a selfie camera, not worth of a flagship. Lets hope this one will be better.
