I've had huawei phones for the 4 years currently usi g the p20 pro which has very similar specs same main sensor size and battery only thing I hate about huawei phones is security updates are very often maybe every 3 months how often are Sony phones updated??
Zalias, 27 Jun 2020I would actually be okay with the price if it came with 256 like the global version. I just ca... moreIts a japanese only bummer yes, the reasoning of which is uncomprehensable. Id be thinking the same way.
Same goes for color options in europe. We are lucky if we get anything other than black here. And I really want the purple, or blue one, for a change.
I myself am waiting for 5 mk II, it ll be cheaper and the smaller form factor suites me better.
Tann Hauser, 26 Jun 2020Well, people are rightly complaining about mk II price, its just too steep...
But, there is a... moreI would actually be okay with the price if it came with 256 like the global version. I just can't bring myself to pay the same and get less.
To be clear, I'm no complaining about the price in general. Just the Japanese price.
Also iPhone are way too overpriced.
Anonymous, 26 Jun 2020In what way?In my previous post I mentioned that the Japanese market is getting a 128gb model. 256 is not available as an option and he price is the same as the international 256 model.
That's what I mean.
And with shorter warranty, pathetic deal.
Just small information: There are few European websites where one can order this Xperia 1 II (probably import one) for 950 Euros without Headphones bundle.
Smithravi, 26 Jun 2020Because it is not just in japan, even in Europe Apple prices are ridiculous. According to Appl... moreWell, people are rightly complaining about mk II price, its just too steep...
But, there is always iphones 11 pro max, or s20Ultras price, as counterpoint argument reference....
People easily forget that the iphone top model 11 pro max price seen mostly, is for base model with only 64 gb ram... and it was indeed 1200, now is 1100...
There is no "overpriced" argument to be made for any other offering out there, even the japanese 128 gb mk II one, if refered to iphones pricing...
Tann Hauser, 26 Jun 2020I see a wonder there... plain 64 gb rom/4 gb ram iphone top model flagship was 1200, and stil... moreBecause it is not just in japan, even in Europe Apple prices are ridiculous. According to Apple, 1$ = 1.2 Euros. Even this date 2019 Apple 11 Pro Max 256GB costs 1352 Euros in Europe, yet people never complain about the price. Same people whine about Sony with 270 Euros worth gift for some reason.
Ali Bashir, 25 Jun 2020No wonder Apple is dominating the market in Japan. I see a wonder there...
plain 64 gb rom/4 gb ram iphone top model flagship was 1200, and still I believe sold as hotcakes.
Xperia 1 mk II, even with 128gb, is a much better phone offer for that same price, yet... sells much less.
No review so far complained about battery endurance.
Too bad haters do not have what to cry for.
Tann Hauser, 25 Jun 2020Yeah, I dont get that either.
For about same price, the world gets 256 gb, japan only 128 gb... Actually, it's not just Sony. LG is selling the V60 for 120,000 yen (1,100 usd).
Android in general is more expensive here. But it really sucks that Sony is offering an inferior product for the same money.
@ gsmarena: Could you please determine an endurance rating for the Xperia 1 II, no matter which software?
Zalias, 25 Jun 2020I'd say 90% of the phones I see on the train or people using on the street are iPhones. Of cou... moreYeah, I dont get that either.

Ali Bashir, 25 Jun 2020No wonder Apple is dominating the market in Japan. I'd say 90% of the phones I see on the train or people using on the street are iPhones. Of course iPhones can be purchased off contract.
What is Sony thinking? This is such a dumb move.
Suz, 25 Jun 2020Still no infomation from GSMarena about it but there're report from many Xperia 1 II users tha... moreTBH if anyone consider this as really GOOD I am really SAD. I mean seriously that does not look good at all, I worry what those number are with aod on.
I can't wait for the firmware release and first real battery tests.
Tann Hauser, 25 Jun 2020Yah, I dont get that japan version thing, it always has lower rom than international, for same... moreI'm not sure but I really wanted this phone.
I'm not sure about buying it though because it's only available through contracts and the contracts are a joke. 3,000 yen a month or a number and 1GB of data if I remember correctly. They also force you into either 24 or 36 payments so you can't just buy it out right and cancel.
I guess I'll get an Asus or a ROG III. At least those are contract free. Huawei could be an option too.
