mixedfish, 17 Sep 2020If you want a phone that is a phone, Mp3 and camera then this is the perfect phone for you.
... moreIt's not best by any stretch of the imagination.
I am looking for the least compromise I can buy - since I own Xperia 5, I more than carefull to make another mistake.
I will gladly bother with the need to carry Tempotec everywhere and pick better device, Sony DAC is nothing special anyway.
We'll see - the least bad device wins.

Nice strong battery life, 3.5mm jack for many options to music and big features in apps/hardware buttons to use the camera.
BestPhoneGuy, 17 Sep 2020It won't bring any focus issues. The Zeiss auto focus doesn't use the tof sensors.I guess Sony made ad for ToF on Xperia 1 II was wrong then.

Sony is giving tough competition to Apple here, not in a way that benefits the buyers though.

You might play games on your phone, but that's not a level I am comfortable to sink down to - for me phone is a phone, mp3 player, small camera etc. a slave device if you will.

Fearghast, 17 Sep 2020Cheaper than iPhone 12 5,4" 128GB?Nobody cares about 60hz iGarbage in year 2021.
These guys brag about using phones for 5 years despite statistics showing a different story.
Imagine how outdated 60hz 720p display will be in year 2025.
Basically the phone will only be sold in US and Europe.
No North American countries, No South American countries, No africa or Asia either. Not even in their home country of Japan?
If you have too much money, and you don't know nothing about smartphone.....buy this phone right now!!!
My last two phones have been Z3 Compact and XZ2 Compact. Really happy with both, although the XZ2 is starting to show *that* screen issue so I'm probably in the market for something new and was hyped for today's announcement.
Suggested 800 GBP at launch means I'm out - really disappointed. Maybe there will be some discount but the Xperia 5 hasn't dropped at all in price since launch.
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2020Cheaper than the 64GB version of iphone 12 pro. Cheaper than iPhone 12 5,4" 128GB?
TBH I expected more around here.
Not all that bad considering other phones, huge price increase compared to Xperia 5 through.
Hopefully that lack of ToF won't bring focus issues from Xperia 1/5 back.
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2020Next to nobody is going to buy a smartphone with a 6" 1080p screen (yet large footprint) ... moreYou are right, but it's still better than upcoming iPhone 12 pro. Pre order bundle also worth considering.
