CptPower, 13 Oct 2020Very costly midranger. Maybe flagship CPU but front and back camera are weak battery is weak... moreMid-ranger? Battery is weak? Are you kidding? I am using the device right now and it has 10h screen-on-time. Also, what mid-rangers have 120Hz, 5G, IP68 etc.? Keep trolling ;-)

Maybe flagship CPU but front and back camera are weak battery is weak... moreNot all people care about the cameras.
This is a nice business phone and something like this was missing from the market since the S10e was phased out.
What I want is relatively small size, decent CPU, IP68 rating and a headphone jack because I'm still using headphones with a cable. This phone is spot on. When the price drops it looks like a strong candidate to replace my LG G6.
Very costly midranger.
Maybe flagship CPU but front and back camera are weak battery is weak 18W charging only and only 128GB for price of 900.
Dunno what Sony is thinking but this phone is DOA.
Anonymous, 12 Oct 2020this camera Does it have any place in Top20 of DxoMark ???????DxoMark is a joke anyway. Who care
Just received my phone from pre-order. Just wow! It is a fantastic little beast and the build quality is excellent. However, I recommend buying a case for everyone, as it is super slippery.
Sony has now become a dream phone for me since it closed its business in India.

Prob has IR so that it can interact with a bunch of other Sony products.

Also this is one of... moreMate even though is made in Thailand the components are still mostly from China, they just assemble in Thailand... Tbh every phone u uses right now is composed of 60 or up to 90% of component made in China, so yeah deal with it.
Wow... That's it. Imma getting this as soon as it hits stores near me..
This is the exact one that I've been expecting from the Sony. Headphones jack, sd slot and my favourite size display (below 6 but it's OK this one with 6.1). And I'm also satisfied with the battery capacity 4000 mah because the Sony own battery optimisation program really does the job giving you long use time. And 18watt in the box is also a problem because believe me guys sony phone do charge pretty quick even with the 18w that comes in the box. If you still want your phone to charge quick then you can also use high watt chargers since the Xperia 5ii can digest high watt input. I had used Sony Xperia X, and xz2 before. Both were amazing phones. Camera and the Sony custom music player is really amazing sound quality by using the beats earphones. Now, it's time to join team xperia again by launching this power station xperia 5 II in my hands soon.
Lmfao, 06 Oct 2020I was interested in this device untill I saw price 900 euro hahahaha hahaha bye sonyIt is not like new Apple, Samsung, Huawei and whatnot Flagships cost less. Also this is one of the few phones which aren't made in China, it is made in Thailand!!!!!
Got hands, 08 Oct 2020Previously owned Xperia Acro S and Xperia Z2, but for number of reasons - everyting for the ch... moreIR sensor?
Because 0.0005% of people care for having it.
Most of us, if needed, use wifi/bt TV controller apps in 2020.
If you care about mobile cam sensors, you should know that main 12 mpx/dualpixel PDAF 1/1.7, 20 AF/AE and 70% focus point coverage capable one in Xperia 5 II, is their most advanced yet.
And also Mi Note 10 Lite is missing some essential sensors, like an SD card reader sensor, or a USB 3.0 read sensor.
Previously owned Xperia Acro S and Xperia Z2, but for number of reasons - everyting for the choice I made then was based on specs that were not basic. Today big phone manufacturer brands are missing one point - by taking away phone jack, radio, sdcard slot, wireless charging and not introducing new/old sensors along with inadequate pricing they will not succeed in future. Stagnation standards this is why i may never buy Sony or Samsung again in the future. Xiomi may be a crap brand for many, but they have introduced Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite, which is far more better phone than others have got. I choose phone for sensors and other capabilities not just RAM or processors. Xiomi phones can be used as remote controls for any TV sets. So tell me, why IR sensors were not present in every Xperia since the first was introduced. This phone is not worth its price.
Joe, 07 Oct 2020Nice phone but you won't be able to sell those for 200 bucks since they go new on Amazon ... moreIn my country they go cheapest for 215...So I am certain I can get 200 for them.
Anyways, phone preorders are sceduled to ship from 12.10. already.
Expecting it next week.
Tann Hauser, 07 Oct 2020Just preordered a Blue Xperia 5 II with free Sony WF-1000XM3/B worth over 200€.
Selling those... moreNice phone but you won't be able to sell those for 200 bucks since they go new on Amazon for that much or even lower. Maybe 150 or 160.
Wh1000xm3 would have gone for 200 but not wf, but those two sound surprisingly similar. I have the wf.
