KC, 10 Jan 2021It's a unique phone and I will say mimic like a 12mini size. Like the overall performance... moreThe only thing 'unique' is that it is a decent all-rounder. I'm glad it kep the 3.5mm jack. But it could do better in scree to body ratio and a bigger pixel for front camera. It quite sad really, I maintain, smartphones are boring these days.
Zzz, 12 Jan 2021SONY is very foolish. They are't follow market phone analysis. SONY phone design, camera,... moreI can agree that Sony needs to improve their camera software because they make good cameras, Google pixels show you can have lower megapixels but still take great looking Photos. but other points you mentioned are not as serious as you make it you sound. Go compare it to Apple and Samsung flagship display resolution, the Xperia 1 and 5 II is around the same level. As for phone design almost all phones are a rectangular block, early and mid 2000s is when you had different phone designs
SONY is very foolish. They are't follow market phone analysis. SONY phone design, camera, resolution is very low than other flagship phone.

Camera is pretty OK so far and takes decent photo with pop color. Pretty OK means better then many mid range phone but not the level like Huawei Mate40Pro+. No complaint at all. It's very handy in my palm. But if u like to watch movies or YouTube, 1ii maybe your answer to it.
Despite 21:9 6.1" screen size, 4000mAH battery life is very promising. A full charged battery can last u from morning till evening after works.
I put it on with a DevilCase Lite ordered from Taiwan. It looks like a premium phone with protection like a tank. Only complaint that the case took around 10days to reach 😅. Though the case is bulky, but because of the slim width of Xperia 5ii, it still fits well when single handed.
Btw, did I say I purchased the grey color Xperia 5ii online. As Malaysia made only Black, Blue and Pink available. Do not deceived by the image online showing the grey version side frame is grey in color. It is in fact a polished chrome aluminum frame. It looks so premium and luxury when u hold it naked.
Anyhow, 2nd reasons to go for the polished chrome frame is that it can be polished if there is tiny scratches in the long run by using "Mr Brasso".
Remarks: if u coming from big phone screen, this is a compact phone so do not complain

... moreI'm thinking of getting this phone since my last ones camera sucked ass so i prob wont be dissapointed, the only thing im kind of concerned is that i play with a 4 finger claw in games and my phone is already pretty small, could u tell me if u have trouble playing with 4 finger claw in games like pubgm and codm? also what are the max settings you can reach, does it overheat? couse if its too small i might get the asus zenfone 7 pro instead.
Thank you in advance
YUKI93, 08 Jan 2021Lol please, I see a lot of people are gaining interest in the Xperia nowadays. Even my friends... moreI would count it on Apple users.... I've know many switch from Android to Apple, some just want to see, some for the brand, some got fed-up with Android. But I know close to none switched back... For some reason, I cannot explain nor can they. I even know one person jumped from Windows Phone 8 to iOS.
As for me, I'm interested in Sony now due to the Xperia 5 II is a balanced all rounder with acceptable price and meh, why not. Samsung - far too expensive on models I have interest, too many compromise with price fair models (and mostly Exynos models from where I stay). OnePlus, getting too expensive for it worth. Asus Zenfone 7 Pro - too bulky and way too expensive at launch compare to it predecessor. Xiaomi/Motorola, poor availability and no longer consider it for it poor/questionable software distribution. Nokia, locked bootloader and getting too expensive for its worth. LG always lack that certain something for me to buy, and well I'll never consider Huawei. There simply isn't anything else and face it, smartphones are getting very boring.
joe nodden, 22 Dec 20201) It doesn't matter if "Sony shows pixel binning first", that means literally ... more3 month with the phone, Used to the Compact but even that this phone is 3cm longer it didn't really disturb me, it is slippery so got me a silicon (carbon look) cover .. looks great and sit well in the hand.(€7)
Did not have any problems yet, use it in Stamina mode all the time, In this mode screen is only 60hz. but the phone is so fast that I do not miss/see the difference, I am a light user so on one charge I go easily 5 days.
2 things disappointed me, the camera is by far worst than on XZ1C .. and the Walkman settings is also not as good, it has more power but less quality.. https://ibb.co/wShPhrC
z, 28 Dec 2020Pros: none Cons: sony xperia is a deeaad brandLol please, I see a lot of people are gaining interest in the Xperia nowadays. Even my friends who only use Samsung and Apple are thinking very seriously about buying the new Xperia flagships.
Guys please what's the best phone case - screen protector for this phone? It's difficult to do edge swipes sometimes with the phone case I have. Unfortunately Spigen don't have Tough Armour case for this phone, only rugged armour. Tough armour might have had flatter/angled side which makes edge swiping easier.
