Biggest issue with Sony Xperia phones is that they have super dim displays,no brightness at all and they are available months after the announcements...
I think Sony is right sticking to its own concept. Bezel less phones are not all that. Can't hold those phones to watch a video without fingers obstructing. Bezel less phones don't fit front facing speakers. I really like the "compact" size, which isn't that compact with premium specs, I would like to see more brands making smaller phones that fit in a pocket.
Is there a launch in India
AnkitG, 05 Oct 2020Sony still trying to succeed with the old ways of not having much looks. However, looks matter... moreIf looks were a factor no-one in their right mind would buy an Iphone would they? The most dull design ever.
Why dont sony just make a thin bezel phone to get sales that's what people want people don't want 2015 designs. Sony aren't really interested in selling many phones as they can at this point apparently.
magnificent phone. just like the 1 II. selfie camera rubbish again. i don`t know why they sticked to the same crappy solution as last year, especially for a high price tag like 1200 euros or 900 euros.... i sold my xperia 1 for a samsung note 10 just for the selfie camera which i couldn t stand anymore and for the battery life. i really like the 1II and 5II but i don `t know if i should buy either of them for that problem

- OMG this doesn't have 240W wireless satellite teleportation tesla charging yet??1?1
- What???? The display isn't 3000 nits???? Unusable!!1!
- I nEed A nO bEzeL sCrEeN
- No 1024 MP CaMerA?? DoA (when the pixel size is half a micron....)
It does allow more freedom to create your own niche like Sony is going for, in my opinion.
Sony always focuses on quality rather than the looks of the smartphone and perhaps this might be a reason why they are less preferred.
Sony still trying to succeed with the old ways of not having much looks. However, looks matter a lot at the current age.
how is the haptic feedback on this Xperia 5 II?
pan, 04 Oct 2020there is that "sonys first ever phone with a notch" and it is called L4... i hope fl... moreVery true. I was very surprised to see a notch even on budget device like L4. I think Sony tried to attract younger audience. I hope they won't adopt a notch/punchole ever and jump directly to underscreen cameras.

Anonymous, 02 Oct 2020The ONLY drawback on this phone is the screen brightness. It is literally unusable in outdoor ... moreYes because people nowadays prefer to stay outside under the bright sun. People don’t go inside the buildings or under any trees or roofs or shades, that’s why the screen of this phone really sucks. When it’s night time, people won’t use their phones, because there is no bright light that will make the screen of phones unusable. 🤦♀️🤦🏻♂️🤦
I have used Sony Phones since very first ones that were then Sony Ericsson. And They have stubbornly pushed with the innovations that you didn't seen at the other manufacturers.It started with the cybershot Technology on then Symbian phones, waterproofing,side mounted finger scanner and power button (that Half-Apple is implementing now),4K recording,4K screen, super slomo,stubbornness not to produce notch phones... And build quality is superb. Not the one phone that i had (and like i said all of them were Sony) has had brake down other than battery deterioration over the time. I had Xperia Z5 that has lasted till this year since 2015. And that's why i will continue with Sony Phones until they make them
320 post , Wtf.

O my, lot off Sony fans.
Sony = make and believe
Sony= Like no others
Sony= why compromise

YouKnowIt, 02 Oct 2020The socket will outlive the life of the battery. This is given that they used a high-quality female port (LOOKING AT YOU NOKIA WITH YOUR 6 MONTH LIFESPAN), but yes, it will outlive the battery, where Qi charging kills the battery considerably faster because of the heat (except for airVOOC OPPO magic which I still want to know how it works because it seems to defy physics with surface-level info)
Anyone have any info on whether the usb port is soldered to the main board on this or the 1 ii?
The ONLY drawback on this phone is the screen brightness. It is literally unusable in outdoor lighting. Doesn't even have to be sunlight outside, can still only barely see the screen.
Source: I have phones with around the same brightness now. (Xperia 10 II, Pixel 4XL (before the brightness update), Lumia 950 and Honor Magic 2)
