joe nodden, 19 Dec 2020So in other words 108MP sensors are better, and your reasoning for arguing against me is that ... more108mpx is worst (than 12mpx) in terms of low light performance. Pixels (in 108mpx sensor) are smaller than 12mpx 5II.
joe nodden, 19 Dec 2020So in other words 108MP sensors are better, and your reasoning for arguing against me is that ... morei wonder.. do you have a grasp on terms like "performance" and "usefulness" ? yes, a 108, as other people mentioned before, is more performant than a 12, but most users looking at a 4k or, even more, UHD monitor will not distinguish a picture captured with a 108mp sensor for a 12mp one. unless they go pixel peeking. which 99% of regular joe's don't.
ok, you will say: why not use a more performant since it already exists? well, a lamborghini is much more performant than a prius, but, damn!, most people will a buy a prius. guess why: because is more useful and better priced.

joe nodden, 19 Dec 2020A certain someone wants to deny it.108mp photos are only really needed for very detail specific scenes, which aren't that common. Most people just want a good sunset picture or something and 12mp works fine.
The only reason I would pick this over a S20 Ultra is the headphone jack (as I use IEM's), the more accessible used market price, the BT.2020 tuned display and its improved battery life.
108 megapixels are a nice thing to have, they are just something I can live without.
Anyways who cares, we're talking about phones. Joe you seem to serious and angry about something that is generally insignificant in world wide effect. Like seriously, "Oh nO thIS phONE HAS leSS cRoPpEd deTAIL, The woRld Is OveR".
joe nodden, 18 Dec 2020Yep sensor resolution isn't everything. But it's a lot like thermal paste on a CPU. ... moreTo be fair, you're comparing 12mp with 108mp. Of course there is going to be a difference in detail and sharpness on a sensor with 9x the amount of pixels.
joe nodden, 18 Dec 2020Welp you've been proven wrong. End of story.Every xperia 5 2 user complaint that picture not even taken with xperia 5 2 but i can do anything about that. I am wrong virtually.
joe nodden, 18 Dec 2020Yep and did you hear about the Note 8's amazing camera quality? Cause I sure didn't.... moreYeah amazing but not the best even in that time. Note 4 vs ip6 is also overkill. Look i didnt mean to hate samsung camera but if you said xperia camera is nothing good i disagree.
joe nodden, 18 Dec 2020Yep sensor resolution isn't everything. But it's a lot like thermal paste on a CPU. ... moreYeah i admit the s20 is better there. Its was a closeup shot for pixel peeping dude like you. However i cant believe that was the picture produced by xperia 5 2 like let me have that phone and let me take the picture. I can do it better.🤣
joe nodden, 18 Dec 2020Yep sensor resolution isn't everything. But it's a lot like thermal paste on a CPU. ... moreYeah but what you said here 16mp is superior to 12mp which contrary to what you said megapixel isnt everything. You know 12mp is better for image processing and 7mp from iphone put 20mp of Huawei into a shame? Even 108mp of samsung, huawei and xiaomi proven just gimmick by most of the reviewer. If you want me to choose which shot is better then i choose iphone. Xperia is the most photographic scene there. Im not talking about photographic like manual mode so put than LG v30 of your mistake away.
Jasson91, 18 Dec 2020Lol who need to argue against a joke who believe higher MP is everything. Even the xperia midr... moreYep sensor resolution isn't everything. But it's a lot like thermal paste on a CPU. You can hardly ever have too much, but you sure can have too little.
And yeah of course to you a mid range Xperia's gonna produce a good image if you think this produces good shots. They all use almost the same resolution sensor. The fact that you think they're both good/similar proves my point that the low resolution is bottlenecking the potential.
Skill at photography only takes you so far. I made the mistake of buying an LG V30 for the manual camera mode. It may have been about as good as the other trash released that year, but I sure was better off waiting another year. Higher megapixel sensors are wayyyy better.
Like just look at these gsmarena comparison shots between the S20 Ultra and Xperia 5 II,
Tell me 100% honestly, which one is better.
Jasson91, 18 Dec 2020Well samsung note 8 use 12mp too instead of your favourite 16mp. The company always know bette... moreYep and did you hear about the Note 8's amazing camera quality? Cause I sure didn't. Nope just the typical mediocre camera quality of every phone in the post 16MP+ era. There's a reason the Note 4 obliterated the 8MP sensor equipped iPhone 6 in terms of photography.
Fabbey, 16 Dec 2020Okay guys, stop fighting. This phone is the best Sony has might come out better some day ,they... moreCringe.
The 5 II is among the best flagships one can buy today, and for people like me arguably simply the best.
No flaws whatsoever.
Sony excelled themselves on this one.
P.S. Albeit one flaw for those interested in selfies...it lacks excellence on selfie camera front.
joe nodden, 18 Dec 2020I needn't argue against you when the evidence is right there supporting me in the fact th... moreLol who need to argue against a joke who believe higher MP is everything. Even the xperia midranger can produce good image sample. You probably bad at photography so iphone probably best for you. Im not against that.😅
joe nodden, 18 Dec 2020There's a reason the old Note 4 used a 16MP main sensor instead of a shoddy 12MP one. Well samsung note 8 use 12mp too instead of your favourite 16mp. The company always know better about MP then us the user.🤣
Jasson, 17 Dec 2020Lol. I think you are blind. How confident you to say the old dead note 4 better camera than xp... moreThere's a reason the old Note 4 used a 16MP main sensor instead of a shoddy 12MP one.
Jasson, 17 Dec 202048mp? What a funny joke with confidence.🤣I needn't argue against you when the evidence is right there supporting me in the fact that Sony's 12MP sensors produces utter low res garbage.
