i honestly don't understand why people need higher ram capacity up to 12GB on smartphone. Does android really used that much resource? even bloated windows on pc still works fine for normal usage with 8gb of ram. can please someone enlighten me, what kind of android apps and how many apps you have to open/multitask to really used up that 12GB of ram

Besides, it's Easy to watch 8k video on 4k TV using SmartYoutube and other YouTube apps.
Devil , 23 Apr 2020Why do you make up lies? It doesn't have 4k display and screen doesn't have 90/120 Hz refresh ... moreAre you high?? Sony indeed has 4K. Go read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4K_resolution
"Note that both Motorola and Sony chose to use a screen resolution of 2520×1080, rather than the CE resolution of 2560×1080, as defined in CTA-861. This leads to the device to have a "true" 21:9 (7:3) Aspect Ratio, rather than the normal CE Aspect ratio of 64:27. The Xperia 1 also has an odd Aspect Ratio of 320:137, and would have been able to meet 64:27 with a more even resolution of 3840×1620. Sony does not adhere to consumer standards, as with their Home Theater projectors that feature a 4096×2160 4K resolution, rather than the CE resolution of 3840×2160. 4096×2160 is a resolution only relevant in digital cinema (DCI), where movie theater projectors feature this resolution with either letterboxed 4096×1716 or pillarboxed 3996×2160 content for "Scope" (2.39:1) and "Flat" (1.85:1) aspect ratios, respectively. The full panel aspect ratio of 256:135 is unfit for normal consumer content with a 16:9 container aspect ratio. "
Don't confuse yourself with 4K UHD with other types of 4K.
Sony 4K display runs at 90Hz equivalent refresh rates. Touch sensing is observed to be 120Hz during games.
Last year Sony 3300mAh did onpar with 4000mAh chinese and korean companies. Apple uses less battery capacity and 4Gb ram too. It all comes to the point of optimization and ram management. If you read PS in my commnet, i clearly mentioned that don't be a foool and fall for numbers. Last year 6GB Xperia did onpar with 12GB OP and S10 plus. Definetly this year 8GB will go onpar with 16GB S20 Ultra. Just watch hold yourself until reviews come out :)
Sony is the best...... They are like diamonds in the rocks... Bt my little problem is they shd not follow wat others are doing bt rather manufacture compact design phones... Lik the zx1 compact and xz2 compact
Devil , 23 Apr 2020Why do you make up lies? It doesn't have 4k display and screen doesn't have 90/120 Hz refresh ... moreEven 3840 x 1600 is considered 4K.
There are many types of 4K, having one side of 2160 is not required.
There are cropped ratios.
The phone has 2,33:1 ratio. If you apply 2160 , it would have 5032 x 2160.
1) CPU does not support all that pixels
2) That is 5K already
Yes, most Xperia since the debut of X series have 120Hz, but locked by Sony.
It was discovered by XDA, then AndroidAuthority asked Sony if it was true and got a YES from Sony.
SD865 does not allow more than 60Hz for 4K, so no matter who uses. You cant have 4K + 120Hz same time. Pointless to do what Samsung provides.
Read the XDA statement, you will see that even midranges have.
By the way, youtube app does not allow you to use resolution above of the screen the device has. You need 4K to set 4K. Otherwise it would be stuck at 1440p.
Devil , 23 Apr 2020Why do you make up lies? It doesn't have 4k display and screen doesn't have 90/120 Hz refresh ... moreSd865 doesn't support over 60hz at 4k so Sony has added motion blur to simulate 90hz (the only way possible) the screen itself I believe supports up to 120hz we will have to wait and see if there is a way to access this frame rate at the expense of a lower resolution (probably not). I know that personally I prefer resolution over frame rate. And if the 90hz motion blur works properly then better still
Devil , 23 Apr 2020Why do you make up lies? It doesn't have 4k display and screen doesn't have 90/120 Hz refresh ... more?!
What he wrote about the screen is true to the point.
Battery is big, and its BatteryCare tech is worth every penny of it, cause it will degrade only about 10% after over 1000 charge cycles.
8Gb ram is, proven by tests, even more than needed for any task or multitask.

You cant use 1/600 at night, too fast.

Just copy pasting my own comment so that it won't get lost
- 4K HDR 10bit Display (Only mobile to cover BT.2020 gamout)
- 4K HDR recording at 60fps & 2K HDR recording at 120fps
- God tier 20 fps AF/AE with Eye AF (even in low lights)
- Legendary Zeiss lens
- Largest physical sensor by any smartphone for main camera
- Photo pro & Cinema Pro
- 21:9 aspect Ratio unlike typical 20:9 (no Need of zoom in and zoom outs for atleast 21:9 content)
- Sexy design without ugly notches and punchholes (+ fits good in one hand). Probably Lightest & slimmest flagship this year 2020
- Fast processor unlike lousy exynos or mediatek with 5G sub6 included
- Dual front end facing Speakers (immersive effect)
- 360 degree audio function + Dolby Atmos tuned by Sony pictures/Music
- Wireless charging
- Headphones jack (no audio losses like in BT and probably will be the only flagship with 3.5 mm in 2020 )
- Motionblur reduction (90Hz equivalent & 120Hz touch sensing)
- MicroSD Expansion upto 1TB (Now a days it is a big deal to have this)
- IP65/68 Rating (Only mobile to include two ratings)
- Camera shutter button
- Power button as fingerprint scanner
- UFS 3.0
- 8GB RAM/ 256GB ROM
Honestly what other flagship company is providing these features for 1100-1200$?? Not saying it is cheap but considering the Prices of S20 Ultra or IPhone Pro Max. It is still cheap packed with lot of Features. Premium design and weight added.
PS: Last year 6GB Xperia and 4GB iPhone performed onpar with 12GB ram samsung and OnePlus in speed test. This also proves how crap Samsung and OP ram management is. Anything over 8GB ram is nonsense (even with 3 chrome tabs open) today. Over 12GB is stupidity and where Mr.Silly lives
Twins, 23 Apr 2020True that, They claim to be ahead of time, now you'll have to zoom in eliminate black bars, a ... moreNot true that.
Name one phone released in the last two years that doesnt have to eliminate black bars by zooming in 16:9 video?
But I know one single brand, this one here, that at least doesnt have to also zoom in the 21:9 media standard video, while all the rest have to zoom both.
Not even going into the neccessary zooming out to avoid screen bholes and notches to properly watch media or play games.
In the year of all aproximately 20:9 screen aspect ratio phones, with all those notches and holes, still searching for any complaints about the single 21:9 unobtrusive screen aspect ratio phone... is just illogical and ridiculous.

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.

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.
