This phone is truely impressed me, but I must say that to be in the competetion, it should have 4500 MAh batt., minimum 48 mega pix main camera, 20 mega pix of front camera.

> where did you get that, it might get a lot of details... but "performs better" is another... 20fps for taking a picture needs "enough" megapixels... the readout for large resolution takes time...
ip certification is not a gimmick "based on my experience" of using my phones, besides there is a disclaimer of what it can handle, thus the "warranty issue" you are talking about... our company has social and environment involvement and there are cases where my hands are muddy and i need to use my phone, phone on my pocket when it rained... of course, there are things i can do to avoid my phone getting wet... but it is quite limiting and ip certification gives me peace of mind...
well many people are like you before when other flagships dont have it yet aside from xperia...
i think you are one of the few leftover?...
again, if your experience call it a gimmick, so be it... but your experience is not of everyones
Is it just me or is it lame it has no IR-blaster when it looks like a TV remote? It would been a perfect pair with a Sony TV! :(

The M51 is a great phone. Charging speed kills you battery longevity. In past this was correct but in present era withh modern batteries and charges it does not works the wy you said and it was proven many times over since 50w chargers and faster are here for severa years 2 or so.
Those so called adds can be easily disabled from settings in xiaomi phones its possible in many else phones too just google it or watch a outube video with guide how to dissable phone adds.
About the camera i said just sayn i know u are right and megapixels arent everything but mostly the phones with more megapixels preform better,
Man lastly i was speaking from own experiences.
Here in my country i run a phone shop company where we at 40 stores sells many cell phones from many brands. IP resistance is nothing than gimmick because many customers came back with a water resisntant phone to fix a water damage.
I've just spent 2 days with my brand new Xperia 5 II. I was really excited at first, but am going back to my OnePlus 8 Pro as my daily driver. Two deal breakers for me:
(a) The camera is horrible. The selfie camera is only 8MP and the main shooter is 12MP. Coming from the OnePlus 8 Pro with 48MP main and 16MP selfie cam, I didn't realize the difference would be so bad.
(b) The finger scanner on the side of the phone is quite hit and miss. I tried registering quite a few versions of my thumb and middle finger and still was hit and miss.
That said, I loved the phone's thinner, taller, lighter overall physical size, 120hz screen (like the OP8P), and it's got this cool bass vibration thingy when you watch Youtube. Batter is smaller at 4000mAh but it's fine and didn't really have major batter drain issues, even with the 120hz on the whole time. It's a really really nice phone, if only the camera at least was up to current flagship specs, I would keep it as my daily driver and keep the finger scanner turned off.
I think it's bad that only apple is able to build a compact cell phone Iphone 12 mini perfect size for a compact. I've always had androit and sony but apparently sony and samsung are no longer able to build small cell phones
In regard to the finger print sensor, I think Sony have nailed it with the side button. I had a Sony with side sensor and last time switched to Samsung with rear sensor and the sensor on the back is an absolute pain. You keep hitting the camera lens and its not naturally where your finger sits when picking up the phone. The batteries on Sony phones may be smaller than the competition but my battery drains very quick on my Samsung in just a year. Never had that trouble with xz premium or xz3
Very good phone but I don't buy , The screen ratio is terrible and I need bigger battery.
I was looking at this phone, wish the camera's were a little bit better and I don't know if I want to give up my wireless charging as I am very good at ruining ports. But furthermore it ticks a lot of my boxes
- small enough to carry around without falling out of my hand (below 75mm including case)
- wide angle AND telephoto camera
- headphone jack
- sd card slot
- no ugly noth
- no camera square (it is so ugly)
- battery life better than current phone
Or maybe I will keep my LG G7. Depends on the software. I don't know, is Sony using clean Android? I don't really like that 😅
Is there any heating issue with this phone while casually using the phone not gaming but just surfing and streaming videos
CJ, 15 Oct 2020With regards to back-mounted fingerprint sensor, that's your opinion. Personally, I think... moreagree... since it is also true to my use case... it is also natural placement... everytime i pick my z5 premium and press the power button, it unlocks... so it is like the old days when there was no fingerprint sensor like z1 compact and z3...
i also have the xz2 compact that has fingerprint sensor at the back, and ye, i have to lift it everytime i need to unlock it...
xperia 1ii and 5ii leveled up, since you do not need to press the sensor to unlock, just place the finger, it unlocks...
but of course, the practicality of the placement depends on use cases... the sidemount, exactly on the power button just feels natural to me...
The only thing what bothers me about this phone is the button layout. The fingerprint sensor should be positioned higher and the volume buttons should be on the left side. Also it is way too sensitive and I end up accidentally unlocking the phone all the time.
LOL @ those who are saying they are not happy as this phone does not have an IR sensor. Really? IR? This ain't 2006. Imagine being told all the specs the phone has and you tell them the reason you're not buying the phone; "I don't like it as it doesn't have an IR Sensor". Hahahaha What next? "I don't like this phone as it doesn't have a removable battery". Or, "I don't like this phone as doesn't have a FM radio".
This phone is amazing. My only wish was that it had Face Unlock.
Well, at half the max brightness levels...I got 12 hr screen on time, and 40 hr between charge.
And I did everything: used camera, played games, streamed music and video, surfed the web, played with settings, made calls.
It amazes me :)
Got hands, 14 Oct 2020Fingerprint (side-mounted) is also a thing which no one ever asked for, this not even a trend ... moreWith regards to back-mounted fingerprint sensor, that's your opinion. Personally, I think back-mounted fingerprint sensor is totally not useful and unintuitive. I never place my index finger on the back of the phone, and if the sensor is on the back, I can't unlock my phone with it still on the desk. I would have to pick it up every time just to unlock it. With a side mounted FP sensor, everything is smooth, intuitive and convenient.
