Soni, 12 May 2020If we have to wait that kong..Sony phone Will FAIL badly..i almost feel sorry for themPlease explain why delay = failure? It doesn't affect the quality of the product. It's not a perishable item like food, where it gets expired. If people are set and already made a decision to buy the phone. It doesn't matter if it's delayed. We'll still buy them when it's available. They don't magically lose sales because we decided not to buy them just because it's delayed. The only impact to the business is just delays in revenue. That hardly means failure.
Logistics are all impacted here thanks to COVID-19. Sony always announce ahead of the general availability. For what? So we can plan our purchases accordingly, set up the right budget, save enough money, etc. If they announce a new phone and suddenly it arrives on the market, it's taken everyone by surprise, eventually people go to credit card debt. Not to mention that regulation and rumours start popping out early while they do their certification, logistics, etc. It's better to go ahead and make an official announcement to everyone what to expect from their phones, before rumours start to circulate with assumptions and false information.
Everyone these days should just slow down and learn patience.. Instead of feeling that everything needs to be rushed and get their hands on as quickly as possible for prestige or social media likes.
Telephone, 13 May 2020You have to import from another country. Make sure to buy from reputable reseller. Try to buy ... moreI think some retailers (private small-medium business ones, not big corporate ones) tend to import some phones that big corporate companies don't sell. Perhaps, you have better luck there. That's how I usually get my Sony Phones where the actual Sony retailer stop selling them. It's sad, but it's the truth. But you're getting the same quality phones as everywhere else in the world. As long as the retailer is a reputable ones, and not the ones who sell chinese knockoff. (Or at least, they admit to sell you knockoffs).
Xian, 13 May 2020where can I buy a xperia 1 ii in the Philippines? Sony stores here doesn't sell anymore.You have to import from another country. Make sure to buy from reputable reseller. Try to buy from a location where your country's currency (Philippine peso) is worth more than (or equal to) where the seller is located. You can save a bit of money this way (you have to pay for import taxes anyways)

Anonymous, 12 May 2020Sadly, it Won't have the pics like the alpha.
My personal preference for camera on smartpho... moreThe IMX689 doesn't have dram on the chip - you'll only have interpolated slowmo at 960fps.
No camera can do 8k30p only 24fps
Lastly you're giving up the device thickness, huge camera bumps for those sensor size.
Sony is actually one of the thinnest phones with a 4000mah battery.

it's taking forever to release this phone ! three months and no sign yet, what'ts wrong with you Sony ?!
Anonymous, 12 May 2020Are you going based on rumors? Some say it's 1.68? Lol
Officially it's the same sensor size (... moreJust like assuming 1.76 on S20+ is same as Xperia 1 II 1.7 which is bascially by anonymous guy. No one with proper eyes assumes 1.7 as 1.76. Sony never fake advertise like samdung and Kina mobiles. If it is 1.76, they will clearly mention it in specs. If it is 1.68 but they put 1.7, it is instead bad marketing again by sony.
Provide the rpoof where it says both have similar hardware or just keep yoor assumptions to yoorself.
PS: Smh trolls somehow exploit every bad marketing by sony against them
Telephone, 12 May 2020A video of the Photgraphy Pro app. https://youtu.be/bXF6FP1_EnYThe app has many useful features...but I didn't understand anything :)
Smithravi, 11 May 2020Some say that 1.7 is actually 1.68 :). That should be bigger than typical sensor pixel size on... moreAre you going based on rumors? Some say it's 1.68? Lol
Officially it's the same sensor size (1/1.76") for both IMX 555 & IMX 557 with some under the hood changes.
Ain't no difference in sensor size as I mentioned previously.
Take your rumor mill lies somewhere else. Make sure you use your reading glasses next time old man.
Anonymous, 11 May 2020You simply can't accept your mistake.
Next time read posts carefully before getting triggere... moreIt does not exist firmaware for sensor.
The sensors are different, they do not give different names to same sensor.
S7 (imx260), s8 (imx333), s9 (imx345), pixel 4 (imx363), xperia 1 (imx445), iphone 11 (imx503), xperia 5 (imx563).
All are 12.2MP 1/2.55" dual pixel. But different sensors.
555 and 557 do not have same amount of AF points. And NO, dual pixel do not cover 100% of the frame. No sensor on Earth can. Just bad marketing from Samsung.
anyone, 11 May 2020can i have this phone with a 5.8 screen pls? really don't need a bigger screen than that and i... more6.0 inch, or maybe even lower (as rumors only), 5 mark II coming around end of the year.
Im waiting for that one too.
