Suz, 07 May 2020Who told you Xperia 1 II and S20 Ultra use same IMX555 sensor. The Xperia 1 II use IMX557 sens... moreNot much difference between the two.
Both Similar sizes sensors.
Will give similar image quality.

SD855 topped out at 480fps.
Tann Hauser, 07 May 2020Only OP 8 Pro has 10 bit.
But yes, last years Xperia 1 was first with 10 bit 1B color screen. Last year's Xperia 1 wasnt true 10bit.
It's got 16M color. Check the specs.
This year's Xperia 1 Mark 2, Oppo Find X2 Pro, OP8 pro has true 10bit display.
Wait I thought I costs around 350 to 400 euros. I saw a video in YouTube about it. 1200 is madness.

when 1 company could charge crazy amount of money for something like this just because they can
you know out there some people still going to buy it and rave about it like it's the greatest innovation ever...
Anonymous, 07 May 2020May be you are talking this, as you have not used sony Mobile or other products, why Apple hav... moreUntil now I have mostly used HTC Phones (Desire, Sensation XE, One M9, currently I am using a HTC 10). The problem with the price is not because of the quality, but at the moment they first have to regain market share. Apple can make their prices like they do because if you want iOS, you have not much of a choice but to buy a phone from them. And also Apple has a big fanbase/hype around it (like Samsung) with lots of people who spend such amounts of money, so they can allow themselves to charge those prices.
The problem of Sony phones is that they are not widely known (many people don't even know that they are still selling phones), in many country's you have to import their phones since they're not selling them there, and it takes them too long to release the phones. Many people have already switched to another phone since they're tired of waiting and the prices of the other phones are already dropping.
The only people who will buy this phone for the price are mostly either the "hardcore Sony fans" or people who want it for it's features, since there are not many alternatives if you want a 3,5mm jack, no notch/punch hole etc.
The latter is the reason I sticked with my HTC 10 until now, the Sony 1 II is the first phone that I consider as a good upgrade for it. But I only found it because I actively searched for such phones.
All the others will only think "Why should I buy this phone if I can have a Samsung etc for the same/less money than that". If Sony had an equally large fanbase like Samsung or Apple it wouldn't be that much of a problem, but as it is now I see them go the same way like HTC.
Suz, 07 May 2020Wait hold up. The display is also 1B colors like the Oneplus 8? And how come nobody talked about it?Only OP 8 Pro has 10 bit.
But yes, last years Xperia 1 was first with 10 bit 1B color screen.
Suz, 07 May 2020Wait hold up. The display is also 1B colors like the Oneplus 8? And how come nobody talked about it?10-bit means 1 B Colours. Even Xperia 1 has 10bit
On paper, this phone seems to be really promising. I'll even go as far as to say it's deserving to be actually labeled as a flagship phone compared to all of the competitors on the market. It's literally the only non-gamer oriented phone to gather missing essential features like the headphone jack, the microSD slot, a high quality AMOLED display without a disgusting notch among others. To think that it took this much time before seeing such a device being announced is baffling, but better late than never. I pray that this greatness on paper will translate into a solid device in real case use, especially for that price range. I'm also hoping for the bootloader to be unlockable so that we could see roms like LineageOS being developed for this phone, then it'd be the icing on the cake. Are Xperia/SONY phones known to hinder custom rom development and such?
FancyCake, 07 May 2020Better? In what way, S20+ has the same SD865 (not talking about Exynos), 12gb ram, SAME IMX55... moreWho told you Xperia 1 II and S20 Ultra use same IMX555 sensor. The Xperia 1 II use IMX557 sensor and possibly exclusive only on this phone

You can see the quality difference on anything, from Screnn, call quality, camera, batetry etc, I have redmi honior and Vivo phone, but the theor camera qualty cant beat my old sony Xperia L. And that mobile still give stunning battery backup. So dont compare with price compare with Quality. Also remember, sony on all the products they maintain their quality and keep their words what they meant for.

Also their marketing really isn't that good (to put it friendly), that's also something they should (and have to) work on, otherwise they will follow htc

In what way, S20+ has the same SD865 (not talking about Exynos), 12gb ram, SAME IMX55... moreIt's the only flagship phone without a notch or punch hole, has a 3,5mm jack and the audio features, the camera is developed by sony's camera department, it has a 4K Display and they keep their android UI very minimalistic/stock. If you don't care about these things it's just not you're phone, but personally I really like this.
Sure, especially with the camera we have to wait how it turns out, but until now it sound really good (manual control, their auto focus etc).

In what way, S20+ has the same SD865 (not talking about Exynos), 12gb ram, SAME IMX555 MAIN senso, and is cheaper.
Tooooo expensive but far better than any ShameSong craps.
I'll get one when price become affordable.
I can't believe people keep saying that there are better phones than this one.
1. It may be better for you but "better" is subjective and it does not mean the same for everybody.
2. There is only one phone on this website that has 5G, Dual SIM support, IP6x certification and headphone jack. It is Xperia 1 II and those are some of the reasons I like it.
People have different needs from a phone so please stop trashing the phone just because it does not meet your needs or expectations.
Usually when somebody trash talk a phone it is because they need to justify them self that the phone is not good so they don't feel bad they cannot have it.
