However, these sources confirms that it really has the gyroscope:

@superpup yes I know about the pandemic I just wish they would give us a release date even if they said it would be June/July and keep up the good reviews

Here in Bohemia, which is literally just around the corner, there is only Sony WI-C310 wireless in-ear headphones - and as far as I understand it, it even couldn't be for all preorders available (but don't know that, the promo event ends in the end of May, so in following days - just before the phones enters to the market). It's shame that e.g. Fast Charger is not included in the box with the phone, but I don't know what's the standard, maybe non of manufactures give this with non-flagship models...
And to the delivery date - I would be very surprise if it would differ much from the Czech Rep. - the estimated date of coming to stocks is from "beginning" (=ca. 3 weeks ago) set to 1st-3rd of June, so it would be strange if one European country would receive it in this time and another one in so much different date. The UK could have some more problems to deal with since it's not in the EU anymore, but in EU countries I would expect it in the first week of June - if nothing unexpected happens...
And Superpup, you were obviously right about the specific situation overt here in HK, as you an dick write about S10 getting for almost the same price as this Xperia 10 II - here I could get the S10 for the price ca. 50% higher than Xperia (for the price similar to iPhone SE 128GB)... :-)

My first mobile bought by my bro in 2011 sony w8 and i used it for more than 3 years. After i got job i bought sony z3 and i used it for 4 years but after seeing people buying what they called value for money phone i also did the same and bought redmi, honor, huawei etc not realising in 2 years i buy 3 phone already which almost as same as a new sony mibile. I regret my decision and now sony no longer available in India. I miss sony xperia mobile so much
Does anybody know if this has a gyroscope or not? Seen it asked a few times but not sure if anybody knows.
One way would be to see if PokemonGo AR feature works, as it needs a gyro. Play withyour buddy feature where you have to look around before finding them. With no gyro they just walk on the screen.
Sounds sad but I have a failing xz premium and the 1ii is just too much money considering all I do on the phone is WhatsApp, emails, browse, YouTube and Pokemon Go.
Oled nice. Much better camera than xzp. Love water resistance. 3.5mm Jack. This 10ii should be perfect for me... If it has a gyro.
Can an owner kindly test? Thank you.
Be patient guys, remember there is a worldwide pandemic going on right now, and releasing a new product today has to be the most difficult thing for a company to do. If you're in Asia, it makes sense that it's a bit easier to get them, since that's where the phones are manufactured. Also Taiwan and HK weren't hit as hard by the virus, so it makes sense that we're the first two countries outside Japan to get it.
Stuff like this is going to happen with all new products, even longer as companies begin to shift their manufacturing out of China.. The next few years will have issues like this (and also prices will generally increase on everything... This stuff is WAY too cheap right now!). I bet the PS5 and XBOX launches will be complete disasters.

superpup, 26 May 2020I will say I think you're crazy if you think a 150g 6" phone with 3 lenses and 2 glass surface... moreNot my intention to make it sound like a negitve. I meant that relative to it's size, the weight distribution made it seem lighter than it was. The plastic sides with the matte finish is just something I personally don't like. Just a first impression I got from a few minutes handling it.
None of those things are dealbreakers for me. I'm a huge sony fan since the ericcson days and was really looking forward to getting this phone and if I weren't in such a rush, having had my phone die on monday, I might be willing to wait out another couple of weeks for additional reviews and picture samples (8 samples on the site are not enough to make an impression), and info on the zooming thing.
I still think it's a solid option for the price range and judging by the fact that the green is currently out of stock and number of other customers looking at the phone at various shops around mk, it will be a good seller for the brand.
I'll probably go with something that's been on the market longer with proven reviews and no known issues. The Samsung S10 is currently 3700hkd at smartone with a year screen replacement warranty.

I got caught out in the red rainstorm warning on monday, which is how my c5 pro died and now find myself in this position having to buy a phone with minimal time to do research and also minimal budget right now.
I was ready to pull the trigger but the focusing thing and the lack of knowledge from the sony guy did not give me a lot of confidence in buying something new on the market.
Definitely need some kind of water resistance rating for HK. Also, F the Observatory.
I went to my local CSL shop in HK and played around with the display phone for 5-10 minutes. The store haven't set up the phone correctly, so I can only comment on my first impressions of the phone with any extensive play and test.
Quick background - I've been using a Sony phone since 2012. My current phone is Xperia ZX2 bought just over 2 years ago and is still working well. So sadly, I don't have a lot of experience using other brands of similar price range/tier to give a fair an objective review. Anyways, here we go...
The phone is light and definitely does feel a little "cheap" with the mint green plastics sides. It's not an edge-to-edge display and the side bezel is quite noticeable if I'm quite honest and I finding myself wishing of an seemless edge display but not wishing to pay premium for a Samsung S20.
I've never used a 21:9 display before so it does feel different and the length is quite noticeable. I'm sure it's just take some time getting used to a longer phone. The display is beautiful. I played Youtube "The heart of Yosemite 4k HDR | 8k HDR 21:9" and it turned out great!
Spend a good 5minutes trying the camera by taking photos to shop displays. (the phone is attached to a security cord angles were limited). Photos looked clear and sharp. Didn't notice any significant issues with photo quality in the very brightly lit shop. I did play with the bokeh setting for the blurred background effect. It took around 1-1.5 seconds to snap and process the photo and I wasn't too impressed with the result. But it was my first time using this feature so maybe I wasn't using it right. A more extensive trail might produce different results and impression.
