60E[z], 02 Jun 2020Wow.. 500+ comments. But in reality 99% of sonyfans dont buy xperia.Don't worry bro, I also wish someone asked :((
Currently im almost happy owner of LG V40 (awesome audio, but phone begins to be slower and slower...). Well.. there is no chance someone from LG company are reading this... but I just preordered Xperia 1 ii. I was waiting for LG V60 Dual sim in Europe. Spending a lot hours of googling etc... and apparently, no dual sim version for old continent... shame on LG, viva la Sony :)
Nick.B, 02 Jun 2020I don't use 800 nits, but I have it per needed! I don't use 65w to save battery life long term... moreYou do not have 65W.
Your phne has two batteries.
Each uses 32.5W.
Then they advertise 65W.
GSMA youtube review
Even though the overall rating and review is positive about Xperia 1 II. I'm still missing the aspects like 20 fps, Eye AF, HS etc. Not too detailed IMHO.
Nick Tagataka, 02 Jun 2020When I recommended a photographer I know to buy V40 ThinQ, he basically ignored my advise and ... moreI basically said the same thing. Any professional if at all wants to buy a "premium smartphone" will be interested in X1 II/LG rather than others. If he wants to save the money and just want use a smartphone for sake of using it, that depends on him. And again we can't generalize. Many people who bought LG will tell you why they did not go for much cheaper other brands with high end specs. But again, buying a smartphone varies from person to person especially in general public.
Nick Tagataka, 02 Jun 2020When I recommended a photographer I know to buy V40 ThinQ, he basically ignored my advise and ... moreAtleast LG has got their strategy right by pricing their phones reasonably.
They'll surely do well with that tactic.
Buying Sony on the other hand is like stepping foot on a sinking ship.
Anonymous, 02 Jun 2020You've come back to defend Huawei again Fanboii? Is it your nature that you can never stop stalking and name calling others whom you don't like, anonymous XRg? Still waiting for your response regarding to night time WB.
Smithravi, 02 Jun 2020Your first statement doesn't make any sense. Point of smartphone is portability and flexibilit... moreWhen I recommended a photographer I know to buy V40 ThinQ, he basically ignored my advise and got himself Mi 9 Lite instead. He later replaced his Nex-7 with a7III.
Meaning? Those who have dedicated cameras most likely use the dedicated cameras if they want to tweak settings in the manual mode. Making professional features the main selling point of a non-pro consumer electronic gadget won't end up well strategically, look at how much LG is struggling to make sales each year.
Nick.B, 02 Jun 2020I don't use 800 nits, but I have it per needed! I don't use 65w to save battery life long term... moreAgain preferences. 500 nits is already a bright screen for indoors and outdoors. Unless you pull out your smartphone directly under the sun, I'm pretty sure no one will have any problems with the brightness. OTOH, what's important to me is that viewing angles. I need the same brightness and colours in every viewing angles.
Xperia already do 50% battery in 30min for such extreme urgent situations. This is pretty much common for any fast charging brands inlcuidng apple and samsung except that Oppo 65W where you can reach 50% battery in 20 min I guess.
I don't understand whyt you mean there is no for 3K and 4K on Xperia 1 II. What are you trying to say?? If you are pointing out it can't play 3K or 4K content, then you're wrong. Unless you live in a country or place where bandwidth is limited, there is no problem with displaying 4K content (Just watch Xperia 1 youtube videos). Apart from this, you record and watch 4K on your smartphone itself.
Smithravi, 02 Jun 2020They pretty much omitted important aspects of this smartphone (20 fps, HS ...) and used plenty... moreThanks. Once you have this phone, I will be looking forward on your take of this phone.
HappyBerry, 02 Jun 2020Cool, where did you pre-order it? I mean which shop/webshopI envy you lol. For me it is with bundle 1200. But hey I get WH. I heard even in Bulgaria and Romania it is lesser than 1000 Euros with free headphones.
RishiGuru, 02 Jun 2020After reading the GSMArena review on Sony Xperia 1 II, I found nothing exceptionally good or b... moreThey pretty much omitted important aspects of this smartphone (20 fps, HS ...) and used plenty words misleading (regarding 4K content, S20 Ultra price, recording only 30 fps and so on). So to me it is no surprise you feel that way. Please watch Juan and TK Bay on youtube (For ex: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozkWS_YqwYM ). They streamed a lot and discussed a lot in detail about this smartphone and why this is important. Then I'm pretty sure you will change your perspective.
And yes, this smartphone is oriented at peeple who wants to dive deeper in manual controls. Not to forget colours and display is also important. I'm also a regular user but to me the selling point is design, display and colours. As I said in earlier comments, this phone is never for mainstream public. Or else they would have followed other brands with refresh rates and megapixels.
Also don't just confine yourself to one website. I would share myself more information to you once I get my hands on it.
Sepfian, 02 Jun 2020And will blow ur battery correctly? It is double piece battery so it charges 32-ish watts each which is okey. Regular top phones charge at 40w :)
Also battery is the cheapest and easiest to replace. Especially with plastic rear back door as find x2 pro
Anonymous, 01 Jun 2020haters want 800 nits, then complain about burn-in. they forget oled has expiration date. ... moreI don't use 800 nits, but I have it per needed! I don't use 65w to save battery life long term, but I have it per needed in extreme fast situation. Your xperia 1 mark 2 don't have these and other things like 4K or even 3K :) Don't = less. Except for Apple :) Which is not.
Smithravi, 02 Jun 2020Sony never aimed at "regular" consumers. Regular is subjective term though. Media consumption ... moreAfter reading the GSMArena review on Sony Xperia 1 II, I found nothing exceptionally good or bad about this phone. To me it seems just like a regular Joe flagship same as any other flagships from Samsung, LG & Huawei.
As I prior said, I am brand neutral and just refuse to accuse GSMArena of not giving the Sony flagship a proper justice in terms of review content. I have seen many Sony fans are saying so. If I could have been a Sony fanboy I might have said so.... but then a Samsung fanboy will say the same for the Samsung reviews... and so on...
I feel the latest flagship from Sony is mostly photography oriented with two dedicated apps for use mostly by photography professionals. I am not a commercial photographer.. this phone does not appeal me that much. I cannot comment whether professional photographers will buy this phone for its manual capabilities... because the last time I said so to one of my friends who happens to be in media & a top level commercial photographer .. he just stared at me for a minute and gave a big laugh... I never dared to raise the question again.
