I was going to upgrade to the 5 when it came out, but the removal of the headphone jack stopped me. Then I heard talk of a possible new compact coming out, thinking the 5 ii may well be that phone but as I am looking to purchase outright I can't justify paying that sort of money for a phone. Glad to hear you like it otherwise, gives others the confidence to buy as those who haven't got one don't know what to expect

I don't trust that alza site plus they are more expensive. I have been looking at the Netherlands, Belgium, etc sites who all have the offer of free bluetooth headphones, so I am hoping the likes of o2 or carphone warehouse will have something similar. Looking at the info coming out it's a matter of days now before a release so I might aswell wait until the more well known companies come out with an offer
Kfav82, 03 Jun 2020That's a real shame it seems like they have gone backwards with putting a speaker like that on... moreYeah you know how people felt when they started taking the headphone off phones? That's how I felt when Sony removed the shutter button from this phone. I don't even understand why they'd do it.
Sucks that they went backwards with a few things (and some software was removed, but if you want a more stock Android experience, you have to accept that)
But overall I am extremely happy with the phone. I can see it being my main for several years. Even if the 5 II is really good, it would just be out of my price range. I can't even imagine what it would take to make me want to pay 2X what I paid for this.
Mar, 03 Jun 2020What is the audio quality on Bluetooth headphones? What headphones do you have?I mean the quality of the phone is irrelevant when using BT headphones. Aside from connectivity of course (and if you try using BT headphones in a busy city, you know how bad this can be)
I use WF-1000XM3 and they are legit the best electronics I've bought in a long time. They connect fast, stay charged forever, sound amazing, and have excellent noise cancellation. I don't know how they could be better.

I dug out my old M2 yesterday and I wonder if it's the same speaker. That sounds dull but when on full it distorts massively. My x compact now has the stereo speakers too which are pretty good. Will have to live with it I guess. I have always had Sony and don't really want to change

Kind of sad coming from the X and XZ to this - the stereo speakers were one of the main reasons I bought those phones. But my usage has changed a bit, and I use the speaker less, opting to go with bluetooth earphones instead.
If a speaker is REALLY important to you, keep that in mind. It's really the worst part of this phone. Worse than the camera, worse than anything else. It's less important to me now so I don't care so much.
After restart device Voice quality is much better.
Anyone can tell me where is Xperia Themes app on this phone? There was nnicestock app in my Xperia X:)

I missed especially widget of album application. i tried to install from APK but it doesnt work just i said.
if you know good application with similar widget give me a sign.

I guess it's like the single speaker I had on my old M2 years ago. Ah guess we can't have everything. The phone looks great from what have read so far. Shame about the apps though, I still use the Xperia keyboard.apk which has the option of the t9 phonepad keyboard that I was hoping to transfer over as I don't like the swiftkeyboard but will have to see if it works.

In my old Xperia x i use it for audio books but there was stereo speakers , there were quite too but sound quality was much better.
Loudspeaker cameras and fingerprint maybe should be better but rest looks very very good.
i tried to install on this phone old Sony Xperia apps like album email or 3d creator but it doesnt work properly.

I don't understand why Sony make it so difficult with giving out information. Even the x1 ii release date of the 18th June hasn't been issued by Sony themselves but the Xperiablog site.
