Very impressive Sony! Only bad thing.. is that this phone is WAYYY too big.. Sony PLEASE do a smaller version of it.. and i will buy those phones to all my family..
21:9... I'm still using my XA Ultra 2 because I just can't imagine typing on that skinny phone. I've used the XA 2 Plus (18:9) and that was fine. I'll have to visit Best Buy and sample the 10 Plus. I love the specs and the headphone jack, but 21:9... ;-|
Shui8, 26 Feb 2020What u gonna do with death sensor? Kill people by pressing shutter button?sooory budy i made mistake , i mentioned depth sensor
I wish sony xperia camera have a built in watermark like other phone has. Huawei, Samsung, Oppo. And please give the good earphone for free not the cheap one. Due your phone price now too expensive and reputation is going down. Thanks
Stop skimping with shared slot!
Will not buy device that doesn't have BOTH second sim slot
AND SD card slot.
Waitung for that! I have to give up my Huawei P30 Pro. Huawei-Phones don't support VoLTE and WifiCall for many providers in Germany. All other phone brands work for all providers, not Huawei.
So, I am looking forward to Sony Xperia 1 II !

Only XZ3 had 7000 aluminium because the frame was so thin every other Sony had 6000 and the biggest build quality complain with every Sony flagship is how soft the aluminium is as it easily gets dinged and scratched.
Vineet Reddy, 01 Mar 2020Yes and this time SONY got lot many things right.
Display. 4K 21:9 90Hz OLED. 10Bit(8Bit+F... morePlease leave any Samsung comparisson comments out of this thread, as many them fboys will come raging and hating here, and then we can forget about proper polite discussion about this phones values. ..
But on the subject,
90 hz eqivalent motion blur reduction I believe is on X1 for mobile processing back, which will be more gentle on battery consumption as opossed to enabling screen hardwares 90 hz...
On DAC, I believe Sony uses Qualcomms dedicated co processor space on SD itself for sound processing...
On earphone impedance value....I ve been on that subject numerous times, but Sonys choice for lower impedance earphones, coupled with their noise reduction to compensate for lower max volumes, saves a lot on battery and keeps same quality. Case for lower impedance choice proven, are these here wireless Sony earphones I got, that last 17 hr on one charge (a whole weeks use), whilst some other standard impedance ones last 8 hr tops with about same maH (2-3 day use between charging).
Battery keeps with BatteryCare, which prolongs minimum charging time
So yeah, Sony as always, keeps their best balanced tech usage choices...
Unfortunately, many not so tech savy reviewers, keep on bashing em for those ("... earphones not so loud, too long to charge up to 100, bla, bla, etc, etc...")
Tann Hauser, 01 Mar 2020Although 24 mpx is the golden spot of Sonys Alpha series cameras, the good ol Alpha 7 series s... moreYes and this time SONY got lot many things right.
Display. 4K 21:9 90Hz OLED. 10Bit(8Bit+FRC). Definitely better than QHD@60Hz or FHD@120Hz so claimed HDR10+(I highly doubt implementing it is gonna help SAMSUNG with their saturated displays instead of making it further worse, lets see how good or bad that ends up being)
Headphone jack. 360° Audio and Trues Hi-Res audio support on their stereo speakers as well as 3.5mm Jack. The only thing I want to know is tat the inbuilt DAC is it the same as XZ Premium or a further improvement from that. The XZ Premium DAC was the best amongst the smartphones till date as it was clean and high and was able to draw headphones under 100ohm impedance with no problem. If it is the same no issues but if it is a further improvement over it I would be more than happy.
4000mAh battery. We all know how well managed SONY's battery implementation have been in past few years. But it still concerns me a bit as driving 4K@90Hz is not a simple task. It surely will be huge improvement over last gen offering and will last one whole day no matter how intensely you use it.
Most importantly notch-less display. Thank god. I am fed-up with ugly notches blocking part of the screen and brands trying to work around it by making it even uglier.
Vineet Reddy, 01 Mar 2020Don't know why people are unable to understand how cameras work even after explaining it multi... moreAlthough 24 mpx is the golden spot of Sonys Alpha series cameras, the good ol Alpha 7 series still has 12 mpx models, praised for low light performance, but those have only 10AF and less AF sensor coverage, whilst this mobile cam has 20AF and 70 percent AF coverage.
And lets not forget that iToF sensor reaches out 5 meters detection.
With that ZEISS and T coating lens, and Photo Pro cam interface, I believe we are entering the proper near mirrorless Alpha camera performance on mobile here.
Thus the name Xperia 1 mark II, to come along with Sonys Alpha camera naming scheme.
But hey, thats only the camera part of this smartphone marvel.
Great comeback from sony.
I feel other brand fanboys start to feel insecure because of the newest sony's phone. HAHAA
The missing from this phone only variant of storage and ram. The rest is incredible.
It feels like US/UK Car vs Japanese Car where Japanese Car maybe offer the newest or latest gimmick but premium feeling and build quality mostly come from US/UK Car
Don't know why people are unable to understand how cameras work even after explaining it multiple times.
Resolution is not equal to Quality.
It is like comparing a Lamborghini Huracán Performante @630HP(SONY XPERIA 1 II) to Chevrolet Corvette C7 ZR1@755HP(SAMSUNG GALAXY S20 ULTRA) and expecting Corvette ZR1 to win over Huracán Performante in a full on track day.

BliTTzZ, 27 Feb 2020Woah, almost 20 pages of stupid comments like "uh oh, no 120hz, I will nevah buy it" , "hurr d... moreAnd you wonder why phones are getting more expensive and losing more features.
Big numbers sell, baby. It's Marketing 101, Sony's objectively better phone will never sell to the average plebian compared to the woefully overpriced and underspecced Galaxy S20 series
Camera hardware looks great, hopefuly the software processing is just as good because that's always been behind other flagships.
I don't think it has alluminum frames.
I remeber to see an article with the slides used for a little press in Taiwan to present XZ3 to local media.
There was mention of frames made by something they said 200% stronger than Alluminum 6000 series.
[deleted post]this phone is the only phone which meets my criteria
already bought 6 flagships in a row with buyer remorse. now holding brand new pathetic oneplus 7t in hand, can't do QC, Qi, no jack, no SD, no notification lights, no AOD, notch, hard to do gestures even on flat screen (no bezels).. but Xperia solves these problems!
