"Its all the same, plucking in the usb cable into that wireless deck, or into the phone. Either way you have to leave the phone on a certain spot, and wait for it to charge. Lots of more waiting time with wireless tho."
not to mention the simple fact that the qi charging station comes at additional costs while the regular usb cable comes as standard in the box and has other uses too. so let me see... plug-unplug daily (takes a couple of secs each time) vs a few dozens, if not more, euro for the station and (quite) a few extra for the phone itself... hmmmm....
though, i can understand the preference of some for this feature, for instance when placing in the charging station in the car. market studies show is rather a techy thing than a practicality one.

I've just recently got a Bluetooth kit for my car so I'm now completely cable-free with regards to audio. It's not a deciding factor anymore, at least for me.
I found it particularly strange that Sony had so many wired headphone users in the 5 II promo, because the on-ear 1000XM4 which was also featured is an excellent pair of Bluetooth headphones.

I myself dont mind at all. The 3.5 mm jack conveniance alone is more worth to me over qi conveniance.

For some people like me, that is a dealbraker.
Also Huawei charges premium buck for a phone with a single speaker, yet premium price should merrit stereo speakers on a phone at least.
And premium price should guarantee also no intusions on the screen at least IMO.
Anyways, its ok to have qi as an option, but definitely not mandatory, as I dont see the dealbraking merrit here. Any flagship phone lacks sth that should be there for that asking price.
Its all the same, plucking in the usb cable into that wireless deck, or into the phone. Either way you have to leave the phone on a certain spot, and wait for it to charge. Lots of more waiting time with wireless tho.
And believe me, most users dont even use qi wireless on their phone, yet pay premium for a phone with it.
But I understand if its a dealbreaker for some, I just reason it should not be, as the funcionality gain is minimal.
Is it better than the Samsung note 10? This is also quite compact.

Only Xperia 10 II has been unlocked so far. Xperia 1 II hasn't been officially added for now. Done, short, solid, clear.

The Albion, 28 Sep 2020What's the big deal re wireless charging ?The 'big deal' is that it's a big deal, as in it's a convenience feature that a premium smartphone is expected to have in 2020! Why would Sony shoot themselves in foot by omitting a feature like that is beyond me, especially since they, at long last, produced a phone that's a complete package otherwise.
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2020S20 does not have a curved screen. Stop making baseless statements.s20 has a "curved display" but less curved than the previous generations... i think they are "flattening the curve"... it doesnt take much effort the read gsmarena reviews before you tell others that they have "baseless claims"... do verify the "basis"
Inclusion of wireless charging doesn't mean it'll be bulkier. It just means Sony wasn't willing to overhaul the blueprint of the 1st gen. Xperia 5 which this is based on.
Once you switch to wireless charging it's hard to switch back, so I'm fairly bummed out.

If that's true then your logic will apply every single phone camera that uses EIS, which includes pretty much all high end phones released in a past few years. The fact still remains that you still get enough resolution for 4K recording when zoomed in 2x on S20's 64MP sensor (which I've been claiming for this whole time), even if its per-pixel detail level isn't as sharp as the resolution suggests due to what you just described.
"Check on your computer the quality of both. Not the same."
Yeah, because neither of my S10 and P30 have a regular Bayer 64MP sensor.
