Dennis.K, 22 May 2020Those are the Europe prices, Moto Edge+ cost â‚¬1.199 in Europe, this is n't an amer... moreWrong, the edge+ is not released yet in Europe, they've just released it in India for exactly 1000$, I looked for European prices and they don't exist (FYI, I don't live in the US). And my point was that 256Go phones should be compared with their 256Go counterparts in price and not the lower storage option, I know you understand this very well, but many people just look at the price written in the bottom and start immediately complaining without knowing which versions they're talking about.
The phone looks better than the Samsung S20 series The functionality of the phone makes more sense than the other phones. The price is higher than I would expect. I would prefer to purchase at £950 with the free headphones and/or they could give £200 voucher towards the PS5.

Rea... moreQuit joking, you're not gonna end up uaing all those 12 gigs of RAM, neither are you going to watch any 120fps content(cause there isn't even any advantage there and as another guy who replied to you said,no 120fps content out there) or play any games in 120fps cause ther are barely any of them, it's just a waste of battery
Instead, th aube 4K resolution this screen provides lets you actually watch 4K content on youtune and the camera is on Pro camera level (you could even shoot a youtube video as if you normally shot it with an actual camera)

The overpricing is talked about endlessly through this comment section. The dead horse has been beaten into a soup by now. Its not defending a company to want a comment section with intelligent conversations and recent updates on the device for reviews/ availability.

But this phone has a 4K Display, no Notch/Punch Hole, a 3.5mm Audio Jack with a powerful DAC, Cinema Pro/Photo Pro Apps for manual Control, stereo front facing speakers which are all things that set it apart from other android phones.
I would rather buy a phone that has things I actually need, instead of a phone that has, for example, even more unused RAM that will do nothing for me. Better numbers don't equal to a better phone, if they have no real use
ALonZo, 22 May 2020If this phone is worth £1200, then I am baffled. 8GB of RAM and a 60hz refresh rate? Rea... moreBut you have 4k. Ok let me try to explain this carefully. If you watch a side by side comparison of 120hz and 60/90 Hz of animation or games you WILL notice a difference. If you watch a film, series or sports match with the same side by side comparison their is NO visual difference because even the sport is only 60fps, 30fps for TV and 24fps for films. So having a screen refresh at 120 Hz when their is only 24 frames to see in a second will not make a difference.
Now if you watch 4k side by side with a hd 1080i 120hz screen on any fps rate you WILL always see a difference.
We know that sd865 does not support 4k at over 60hz. So before saying that the phone should have 120hz to be worth the price, I ask you which is more important for your needs? Does 120hz mean the phone is more advanced or does 4k mean the phone is more advanced? That depends on what you do with it.
But to base the idea of price acceptability on refresh rate alone is a very basic observation
[deleted post]it adds opinion about the price. Stop blindly defending them. Sony is asking quite a lot, probably just because others get away with it.
Hope some reviews start coming out soon. Hope it's worth the wait.
If this phone is worth £1200, then I am baffled. 8GB of RAM and a 60hz refresh rate? Really? For that price point I'd have at least expected 12GB RAM and the very least a 120hz refresh rate. £1200 for this phone is a crazy price. This phone should have been around £800 tops, based on it's specs.
There is much better competition out there if you wish to cough up that much money.

RishiGuru, 22 May 2020I smell a Sony fanboy. But their is nothing wrong with that. I also rather be one than not. Ho... morenice points... i am not sure if i am an xperia loyalists, then... :-D
i tried nokia, lg, alcatel, lenovo, xperia, cloudphone, firefly mobile, htc, asus... and found xperia as my "sweet spot"... both my personal phone and work phone are xperias... i sold some, i keep some... like lg g4 nokia n8 and nokia 909, those are great camera phones... that is why i am excited with the camera system of xperia 1II... btw, somehow i consider myself an xperia "fan" despite the fact that i dont always upgrade... still on z5 premium as it still works the way i want it... but with a lot of changes (except the classic design), xperia 1 II is very promising...
