Its all the same to me. Plug it in or leave it on a deck that is already wired to the socket. Either way you wait for it to charge, using phone while charging either way is not recomended, and wireless is much slower at it.
Had the Xperia Dock for my old z1 compact magnetic wireless charge long ago. Went to charger again with X Perf.... didnt miss that dock at all.
Slide it in, put it on, or stick usb in... its simply charging, no substantial difference. Except qi wireless is the slowest option here.

The flagships from Sony this year are really good. The 1 II is a great smartphone, and the 5 II just brings a smaller form factor with other strengths. It's quite unique in its segment.
The price is perfectly justifiable in my opinion.
Supreme smart device quality! Like.no.Other.
If price was more decent it's was the best host cake of 2020.
Still better than most in every aspect!

However...battery heating is a proven method of ruining the battery and wireless charging is guilty of overheating batteries. So, one or the other?
This phone is perfect but it will not succeed because of the price, unfortunately.
More than 13 hours of web browsing with 120hz refresh rate! That's what I wanted to see.
Size, camera, clean skin, headphone jack,
Sony nailed it
I‘m so much inclined on getting this phone. Price is well worth it. Still better when one can wait for the price to come down a little. With these battery life at 120Hz screen. This is Wahnsinn. Unbelievably good! Great job Sony!

Constructive criticism isn't like brand betrayal or anything.. no one and therefore also no thing is 100% perfect and flawless, and yes, like the creators of the device believe it or not, even this device has shortcomings - and this is coming from a very loyal Sony products consumer.
I was a big fan of Sony since the Sony Ericsson days but switched to Samsung/iPhone since 2013 and never looked back. This is the first Sony phone that got me interested in a long while, until I found out it lacked wireless charging! Only Sony would make the painfully stupid decision of introducing a flagship phone with a flagship price that lacks wireless charging in 2020; they've become experts in shooting themselves in the foot. Well, that's a showstopper for me, and I'm sure many others; Sony, what drugs are you on??
please test the 3.5mm loudness. below average, average, above, loud very loud...which is it? you keep telling us it's great that it has a 3.5mm plug but don't test the loudness. you test the speaker loudness and frequency response, but no test of 3.5mm plug anymore. what on earth do you have against people that like 3.5mm plugs? if you keep raving about phones that have it why do you refuse to even test the volume? yes i agree we don't need the frequency response but please just test the volume level like you do the speaker. what you are doing right now is completely illogical.
np, 28 Sep 2020Is anyone else perplexed by Sony's ToF sensor? It doesn't seem to do anything then, ... moreAutofocus accuracy in bright and lowlight conditions up to 5m distance, especially for video and 20 fps bursts.
Not relevant for this here building photoshoots, but more for action shots.
5 II will be more of a hit or miss on that cause the lack of iToF, but 1 II will be consistant.
Thats... a great batterylife for the 120 hz. Maybe I'll just leave it on for a while, tho dont see any use for it other than gaming. Which I wont do much...
So yeah, 60 hz probably for me, for that amazing batterylife there.
With my usage pattern.... will be probably 3 days offcharger worth.
Hope we re getting those earphones as a plus for preorder here in EU too, selling those is about 100 € off that selling price.
Good stuff Sony, finally a worthy upgrade for my mobile tastes. B)
very good battery life, interestingly does better at photos compared to the 1ii (there might be software updates for the 1ii by now. wouldnt expect it to be a hardware issue if its the same setup). Will see what the pricing will be and decide what phone to get (my current S7 edge is really starting to show age haha)
