Vic, 18 Oct 2020Silly price + (too long x not a compact) = won't be buying thisGood to know.

raiseApint, 17 Oct 2020Too narrow for reading anything. Deal killer. get a samsung s20 or any other 6.1"-er. much, much wider.... :)
raiseApint, 17 Oct 2020Too narrow for reading anything. Deal killer. No offense, but the phone is literally made to read more/ see more content with its 21:9 screen vertically. That is one of the main selling points of the phone as it does so in a compact size with similar width to iPhone SE 2020 and S20. I mean for those that want more width and bigger screen, there is the larger Xperia 1 II as well.
raiseApint, 17 Oct 2020Too narrow for reading anything. Deal killer. It is as wide as my Sony XZ1 compact .. also text is the same size.
L.O.R.D, 16 Oct 2020Well the quality may have been inferior in the past years, not going to disagree with your poi... moreI still have the 15 years old SE W800i the Sony Z3 Compact and the XZ1 compact, all look and work as new, not even a scratch...I think the problem is with your hands.
Have it already 4 days and love it,
Phny, 17 Oct 2020Mine will come on Monday October 19 with the preorder wireless buds. I came from an iPhone 11 ... moreaw! you are crossing the "platform" boundary! good luck with that, that is if youve been an apple user... you will be exposed for "a lot" of flexibility since apple is a closed platform... 5ii size is between iphone 12 and iphone 12 mini...
what color is on your preorder... glad the bundle is on that preorder...
Mine will come on Monday October 19 with the preorder wireless buds. I came from an iPhone 11 Pro but was not impressed with the new iPhones.
Anonymous, 16 Oct 2020Almost 300 euros less than iphone 12 pro in Italy.
It has charger, earphones and gift. IPhone 12 will feel like a downgrade compared to Xperia 5 II as it is missing a lot of things.
I'll rather pay 900 Euros happily for the Xperia 5 II over iPhone 12 even though Xperia 5 II won't be my preferred option from the Android world.

I bought a Sony Xperia Z Ultra whose screen cracked just after two weeks, but that I believe was due to undeveloped form of glass on its display which couldn't hold up well, rather than the phone quality which was otherwise very premium looking and well made. The current ones, i.e Gorilla Glass 5 or 6 work fine and are much improved over their predecessors, also phones lacked a lot of important features as proper cooling, water resistance, sturdy chassis etc so they failed quite easily. A Nokia smartphone I bought then, a C7 01 cracked with just a fall from three feet, so the quality issue was with mostly all phones of the time I guess, regardless of brand. Phones today are much better in quality and durability, with a lot of focus in this area in the recent years, so I think this Xperia II maybe just as well or worse built as any other flagship phone you'll see in the market today, as we can see in the teardown video, there's barely anything special going in there that would make it a worse phone than others so I'd say they've definitely improved over the years
