Telephone, 23 Apr 2020Wow, I hope it preforms better than electrostatic sensors. (the article was posted in December... moreThis sensor was also patented by sony months ago.
Now they do not need to disable for USA nor pay any royalties if they use.

Let's suppose they save $10 per unit using isocell.
Then let's say they can sell 2 million units until december.
That would be more $ 20 million to them.
Also it is ridiculous Xperia 1ii has worse front camera than Xperia L2. Also 8MP 1/4, but exmor.

Xperia 1 ii new finger scanner. Wow, I hope it preforms better than electrostatic sensors. (the article was posted in December 2019, Dunno if its still accurate)
Either way, Optical sensor means my sweaty fingers should always work (at least more than before).

Disclaimer: This has no factual evidence, It is just my opinions
Sony sensors are high in demand, which means companies get limited quantities, or have to buy at inflated price. (this is just a hypothesis)
So because of the high price, Samsung offers their high end isocell sensors (at a discount) to Sony in exchange for some high end IMX sensors at regular price. Negotiations like this result with both companies winning.
(Remember I'm making this up, so don't quote me)
For me, the IMX557 is all I wanted in the Xperia 1II, Its actually a Sony exclusive sensor which means that its designed specifically for the 1II. I never really use the other telephoto and ultra wide angle lenses (occasionally use time to time). Maybe for the "selfie" camera, a Sony sensor might have been nice to have instead.
Can someone make an online petiton to show Sony we want Xperia with exmor only?
Everybody knows Samsung sensors are worse.
I'd rather pay more maybe $30 for the device just to get rid of isocell.

I personally like to hold a mobile comfortable in Hand and 21:9 Ratio is perfect for watching movies (in today's world of Netflix and Amazon Prime).
Also you barely miss 1-2 words or even 3-4 letters when you read vertically. But you will have more Content per page and less scrolls. As I said it all depends on personal preferences. If you don't like 21:9, then you can buy 20:9 mobiles in the market which are useless for both 16:9 Content and 21:9 Content ;)
Also I think this design is what makes Sony unique when you go out in the world of 1000+ similar ugly designs.
They still keep that 21:9 ratio which is very extreme. Very hard to read a line and very narrow to see a vertical video because nowadays everybody is filming vertically I don't know why is that. More like a remote control than a mobile. Very long and very narrow.
[deleted post]With sale drop reports coming in, Seems nobody will buy any phone this year, Xperia included.
Sammy is down 40%, Apple 50%, others havent even made reports yet...
At least Sony is accustomed to lower sales, Apple and Sammy, or LG will survive due to other buisnesses, other OEMs depending solely on mobile sales will be hit the hardest.
[deleted post]Failure means charging about $900 for 2MP macro cameras, gorilla 5, no sd slot, no IP rating and fake antutu scores. Or a $1600 phone without AF that cant handle 3 min of Candy Crush without losing performance.
I laugh when I see few companies show antutu during the presentation.

GSMArena says Find X2 Pro can reach delta 0.7.
Phone Arena said a very different number.
About Xperia, I heard Sony uses own standards for their products. With non-Sony startard tests, you will never find the same delta/gamma values they say they use.
Everyone who is arguing that the display is not true 10bit while other brands support it. I think you are missing the main point. SONY doesn't need a true 10bit to compete as it is the only brand crazy enough to throw in dedicated X1 chip-set for processing display. Name one other brand that does that, none not even SAMSUNG and LG are crazy enough to do that. All the brands get their display processing from SD chip-set and they tweak it according to their requirements which makes negligible difference while the only real differentiating point ends up being display panel used. That is the reason from time to time gen to gen some of the brands display ends up being similar to each other when same display panel is used. In case of SONY even with same display panel there will be big difference as the processing is completely different and way superior in comparison to competetion.
Let me make one thing clear that this time XPERIA X1 II will be having FP sensor enabled and inbuilt into Power Button and be officially sold in USA with no restrictions. No need to purchase International version or get one imported to get that feature.
SONY US site clearly states availability of FP sensor and the images only show one button for Power so that answers it.
