superpup, 04 Jun 2020It's fine for me. Maybe you're covering up the mic with your fingerI make an video- my doughter was singing loud nest to phone and about 2meters from camera. when i watch this movie i do not heard anything unlease i put my ear nest to speaker (half sound lvl) . When i set off multimedia sound to maximum i heard the movie sound in "normal" level IMO. I send it to another phone (redmi note 8t) and it was minimally louder on max volume.
Microphone and speaker slots are clear do i dont knoew what a problem is (or Is there any problem). I wait for an update or make a fix option in the Xperia Companion.
BTW i took a few photo and video in home and outdoor (sun with shaddows-late afternoom walk ) and photo and video quality is real nice - i use automatic mode.
At the moment my onlyminus is speaker and microphone issue (?).

As a flagship phone i'd say. Also I'm using Tidal master quality.. Tidal has released some albums for Dolby Atmos supporting phones. With it the "music scene" is really wide and nice. Not like a cheap surround mode sometimes which totally destroys music quality. But it's not a must have funtion for me when I prefer music as it should sound an an artist record. Must have for me is:
- Oled / amoled screen (infinite contrast)
- ip ranting (min. IP 65)
- very good or even excellent audio performance
- approx 6" screen
- decent performance and good battery

And 3aXL cost more where I can buy it

You were wright about all other things

- headphone jack
- SD card slot
- 1 year younger
- one hand operation (due to smaller width)
- triple lenses camera
- NOT made in China (most important for me)
If the 10 II has dual front speakers then it would be perfect (for me anyway)
Not sure if links are allowed in comments, but phone arena posted their 10 ii review, saying it "shows what a mid-ranger phone should be"
It's an even more barebones review than they do here, but if you're looking for more info here you go

when i record my voice VIA voice recorder app its good but when i'm making video camera sound level is very very low. So its look like software problem not microphone.
Do you have the same problem?
superpup, 03 Jun 2020I'd like to help but I don't really know what you're asking, sorry...Settings-technical help-tests-microphonespeaker can you make this test and write is it working in your device properly? I cant do it but when i use microphone it worka normalny.

Yeah it's definitely good news. I am not too bothered about having to buy the sim just wasn't sure what the score was if you didn't want to use it.

For anyone interested I have just had this reply from o2 about availability...
I have seen a date and though it doesn't seem to match up with that 10th June you've mentioned, if all goes to plan then we might surprise you. As you may have seen recently, some big corporations across the world are delaying products and announcements to give a bigger voice to those who need it right now, and coupled with ongoing covid-19 issues... Basically, nothing right now is ever going to be 100% airtight - but again if all goes to plan, you might be looking at the O2 website before any of the others next week ;-)
why should I buy this over the Pixel 3a XL which has a better chipset, gpu and battery for the same price?

I"m using Sennheiser headphones so I"m expecting pretty good audio with the aptX HD on this phone.
Hey guys. I want to leave Samsung and go back to Sony. Is it worth going from the Galaxy S8 to Xperia 10 II ?
I maked all tests from technical helps app as usually i do when i get new [hone. Anything was ok but i cant pass one of them- speakerµphone- speaker emited sound but it looks like microphone doesnt hear that. Its strange because when i record voice or phone calls i dont have a any problem with microphone.
Could You check on your Xperia 10 II do You have the same issue (?0.
And anyone know if this phone have 1 or 2 microphones? If device have 2 microphones maybe in my case onlyu one is working properly? Or maybe its only bug in test app.

They seem to be really pushing them so fingers crossed we get some sort of deal like that
