Xperia 1 II:

    Of course, the main reason to buy an Xperia these days is for photography, since this brings much of the tech over from the Xperia 1 II. Packing a triple-lens Zeiss camera that we saw on the previous model, this new phone is able to shoot 120fps slow-motion in HDR, as well as grabbing real-time eye-autofocus. Sony’s pedigree in gaming means that, too, you’ll be able to roast your frenemies in multiplayer.  In the US, the Xperia 5 II will cost you $950 (£799 in the UK), with pre-orders opening on September 29th and shipping expected by December 4th. Plus, if you hand your money over before November 29th, you’ll get a gaming bundle including a headset, spare power bank...
    Today Sony follows one of its new form-factors that it introduced last year with the Xperia 5. The new Xperia 1 II (read Mark Two) follows in the footsteps of the smaller primary sibling device and retains its shape, but significantly improves its design and maintains an almost complete feature-balance with the larger Xperia 1 II. The new phone also sets itself apart from other Sony offerings: although it does not have the gaming phone’s player externally, the company has focused on the device’s high gaming-centric usability. With a new internal heat dissipation system and 120 Hz refresh rate OLED and 240Hz sample touch input, the Xperia 5 II boasts above its weight when it comes to liquidity. Sony maintains...
    Sony is continuing its refresh of its smartphone line to focus on photography and video with the new Xperia 5 II. It’s the smaller sibling of the very tall and weirdly expensive Xperia 1 II, and this newer phone betters it in several regards. It’s cheaper, for one thing, going on sale on September 29th for $949. The other major improvement is that Sony has put in a high-refresh-rate 120Hz panel. Oddly, though, Sony says it’s not shipping until December 4th and even more oddly, it will have 5G but won’t work with the 5G networks in the US — just like the Xperia 1 II. The basic idea of the Xperia 5 II is that it’s a phone with...
    You’d otherwise get much of the same performance as the more expensive device, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. You’d have three 12MP cameras for main, ultra-wide and 3X telephoto shots, with Zeiss lenses and 4K 120FPS video recording. You’d also get a Snapdragon 865 chip, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage and 5G support. Despite the timing of the leak, the Xperia 5 II wouldn’t arrive at IFA. Instead, Sony is reportedly aiming for a September 17th debut. The main question is the price. It’s likely to cost less than its $1,200 counterpart, but it’s not certain by how much. That difference could be vital when 120Hz support is relatively commonplace in phones like the Galaxy S20....
    A lot of strange decisions have gone into Sony’s latest smartphone, from naming it as a sequel to 2019’s flagship release to giving it a near-4K (3840 x 1644) OLED display to bringing the 3.5mm headphone jack back to relevance. However, the strangest decision revolving around this new handset would be you getting your hands on one and then not covering it with a protective case. These are the best Sony Xperia 1 II cases for keeping your phone protected from drops, scratches, and scuffs.
    Lots of cameras, even more control The Xperia 1 ii has a handful of cameras on its back, and it’s worth working through them in order: At the top is a 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera with an f/2.2 aperture and phase detection autofocus. It captures a 124-degree field of view with the equivalent of a 16mm lens, and there’s very little barrel distortion. It’s reliable, though it’s the camera I use the least.  Next is the 12MP telephoto camera, with optical image stabilization and an f/2.4 aperture. It shoots at the equivalent of 70mm so it’s very helpful for situations where you can’t physically get closer to your subject, but results tend to be a little...
    Sony’s new Xperia 1 II smartphone is purpose-built for one very specific thing: to make your phone work a little bit more like a standalone Sony Alpha camera. It’s a long time coming: Sony has made dozens of Xperia phones since its first one in 2008, but until now, none of them have had an identity this clear or compelling. Every smartphone brand tries to create its own ecosystem — or at least its own experience. You surely understand what it’s like to live in Apple’s iPhone world, Google’s Pixel world, or Samsung’s Galaxy world. But there’s long been an entire Sony world that’s just as well-defined, and it has a community of users that’s just as dedicated. It’s...
