Just watched several YT reviews and they were all really good, i don't know who reviewed this one, but he forgot to mention so much data. 2Bad.
Is it just me or is the main camera's good lighting performance underwhelming? The center portions -- the money bills -- are soft and borderline blurry when compared to the S20 and Xiaomi Mi 10. The x-rite right panel, giant ABC, colored threads, cow and colored pencils are also blurry while the checkered star and checkered heart lacked details. It did have a clearer, more vibrant carrot and Spongebob but these are not even in the center of the photo.
Given the "special" sensor they used and Sony camera technologies integrated, I was not expecting the S20 to beat it this badly.
Although the 1 II did beat the S20 in the lowlight category even if it used 100 more ISO than the S20.
Anonymous, 31 May 2020And how much battery replacement costs, 20$.
https://www.oneplus.in/support/repair-pricing/de... more"Lucky" you that lives in a country where you can get these replacement. I live in a country where we don't even get new phones imported, each one of us has to buy from outside and bring them in at very high prices. There is no official support here, that means no battery replacement for 20$.
I want a phone that can last me at least 3 years without having headaches and downtimes for replacements and services.
So yeah, I think this Xperia 1 II might be what I am looking for, maybe the 5 II.
Wongwatt, 30 May 2020And that's the problem! People don't want their phone to only take decent photos in Pro mode,... moreAgree. That's why sony is not aimed to be bought buy "regular" users. Pros here also doesn't mean people who are 100% professionals. The market they aimed is people who knows about how to use cameras properly (not those who just have cameras for style) and aimed to get the best pictures from their preference. Yes this phone won't sell to the mass market, but those camera users might want to consider this though. SO maybe GSMArena should revie it from 2 perspectives?

I would want.12-16 bits recording to deliver 10 bit HDR delivery, 14 bit plus for better 12 bit HDR delivery. It's also very very low data rates, and very hard to control in real time in a professional way, even compared to a pro Sony. Professionals regard these phone things as pathetic.

Anonymous, 01 Jun 2020It's good for a phone picture. But what's the issue? You don't seem to understand the visual... moreThis is lowering the contrast. If inside a darker room, you are going see worse contrasts and more burn out.
Now, as far as HDR display, that is another thing. Professionally you want people to have a pleasant experience. if you fed a high contrast scene into a 10,000 brightness phone screen, people are going feel pain looking at it. So they squeeze what they record down into a suitable brightness range.
Now, another thing is that the HDR footage is recorded in a shallow bit depth shaped. Yes you try mucking around professionally in post production, you can get problems where the image bands or adjusts unnaturally. 10-12 bit is the new 8-10 bit. 12-16 bits would help.

You don't seem to understand the visual system. What we see is not reality. The human visual system had multiple HDR biology to even out the look. The reality is much different. So professionally you have to even out the differences, so that a user on any sized screen sees an approximation of what they see as the visual system dynamically adjusts across the scene as you look around it. So, it looks inside it sees a kit scene, if you then look out, your eye adjusts to show you another lot scene, maybe more brightly lit. Even holding your gaze still, the mind dynamically changes contrast across the scene to even it out. So, a burned out local window often looks too unnatural compared to what your mind sees being in the room.
Now, that picture is not a great test. It's in a fairly open space, letting more light inn but in
I think the review totally missed the quality points with the content creation features in the game mode functions, focus pull, color grading, manual camera controls.
It isn't a review if it only compares standard features that other brands also have.
However Sony really need to do better with their Auto camera mode to capture the general consumer.

You shouldn't have published the review without battery test. Camera battle would've been a much much better idea imo.

4*2... moreWhat 4k from gsm arena review nothing was 4k on this one lol ......Quote ......We were able to play HDR content from all major sources like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and YouTube. Netflix in particular served HDR10 but was capped at 1080p, and we were expecting 4K. We did get the UHD resolution on the Xperia 1 back when we reviewed it, though it's limited to FullHD now as well.
As for Amazon Prime, that remained in 720p.
YouTube, on the other hand, could go all the way up to 4K60, though the phone continued to report it's rendering in 2560x1096px.

Very rarely, absolutely very rarely displays run at that level. Pretty much extreme outdoor conditions in vivid display mode. Most of the time display runs between 400 and 500. I always suggest people to use manual brightness instead of sensor controlled because it saves battery, you always get accurate color rendition and most of it all you save your eyes.
I think these are among the VERY BEST detailed camera samples I have seen in the site. Amazing camera, not smudged and oily like Samsung's or OnePlus'.

even china brand huawei selling mate 30 pro for $1300 without google certification . I guess $1200 for a sony phone is more than fair .
Now I have placed my pre-order. Yes its expensive just like every other flagships. Anyway this phone seems to have everything I want and no notch or punch holes and seems to be an worthy replacement for my 3 years old Sony XZ Premium.

Small battery expect less battery life, but my Sony XZ can last ... morePeople are blinded by the large mAH numbers. What they don't understand is Lithium is Lithium and the only way to even out a long lasting lithium battery is by giving it proper optimizations in the form of reliable input power watt and proper heat dissipation.
Sony uses Qnovo tech on their smartphones. It optimizes the battery very efficiently. I'd prefer implementation of this tech over fast charge and fat numbers any day.
