Anonymous, 13 Oct 2020"the US the phone is limited to 4G (while it is 5G-enabled in Europe and Japan)."
... moreI think you're being overly literal. The point was that the Xperia 5 II does not support 5G in the U.S. (because it doesn't cover the bands used in the U.S.). Whatever the reason, the Xperia 5 II is basically obsolete for use in the U.S., before it's even released.
Also, you neglect to take into account that it also does not fully support 4G in the U.S. It lacks band 71 for T-Mobile, which is one of the main bands used to expand T-Mobile's 4G coverage. It may lack other bands also.
The truth is, this phone was just not made for the U.S., but Sony is trying to pawn it off on people who don't know better anyway.

On other hand Xiaomi or Realme will make same device for less than 200 or 150.
Some companies makes quality devices for affordable prices and some jut rob customers by selling fake gold disguised as a diamond.

Anonymous, 13 Oct 2020Software slows down the charging to protect battery. Without it , 100% should be in 1h. Yes that's why the charging slows down as the level reaches near 80% and slow charging is also useful while charging the phone at night because a lot of people, including me, forget to turn it off after the charging is complete

The specs could be equal or even better in the cheaper phone compared to some expensive phone which, one might think is for just higher profits but the build quality is often where the cost is cut. Personal experience shows that my most expensive phones also tend to last lot more than others so yes, we get what we pay for

The iPhone 12 pro is $50 more expensive than the 5 II, so you can't say it is "inferior".
They have the obligation? Look at the companies that sell 100 phones every year and each ONE of those phones have different chargers, different headphones, etc. How is that environmentally-friendly?
It doesn't honestly matter how much apple's chargers cost, they aren't preventing you from buying cheaper options.
Mr Magma, 13 Oct 2020Now compare the 1 Mark 2 with android phones O_oYes.
Motorola Edge+ = arrived in Europe for 1200 euros.
Oppo Find X2 Pro = arrived in Europe for 1200 euros
Samsung S20+ = 1200 euros too, $1200 in USA
Samsung S20 Ultra = 1600 dollars the 512GB, $1400 the 12/256.
Asus Zen7 Pro = $1000 in Taiwan
These were initial prices .....
