Short description Sony Xperia 1 II

This is a smartphone on Android 10 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a good camera that has 4 modules (12 MP Wide, 12 MP Telephoto, 12 MP UltraWide, 0.3 MP TOF 3D camera), and the front camera here turned out to be absolutely ordinary. And Sony Xperia 1 II has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, dust and water protection.

Versions: XQ-AT51, XQ-AT52.

Android version and market relevance

The long-awaited announcement of a new smartphone from the manufacturer Sony, which took place in February 2020 (in our catalog you can see all smarphones of 2020). This is a new model Sony Xperia 1 II — dual 5G-smartphone works on Android 10, which does not receive software updates and will forever remain on the old version of Android. If this does not suit you, then be sure to check the selected ones DROID-smartphones in our catalog. These are models that work on the latest version of the Android OS or are updated on it.

And let’s look at an important function — the availability of 5G networks support in a smartphone. The manufacturer implemented functionality for working in 5G networks in this model. This means that you can use high-speed mobile Internet (up to 100 Mb/s) without delay with a stable signal. Agree that this should be very useful and we will all quickly get used to this quality of mobile Internet.

Screen, body and battery

By the size of the Sony Xperia 1 II screen, we were assigned to a segment phablets (smartphones with a huge screen), considering that the bezels around the screen are very small (all smartphones with an edge-to-edge screen). See for yourself, here is OLED-screen with diagonal 6.5″.

Dimensions of the screen dictate to us and the size of the case. At Sony Xperia 1 II the case turned out slightly thick (already whole 7.6 mm). In addition, it is worth noting that the body of water and dust resistant. The battery in this model has a capacity 4 000 mAh. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

The smartphone Sony Xperia 1 II got the main camera with multiple modules (smartphones with four cameras): 12 MP Wide + 12 MP Telephoto + 12 MP UltraWide + 0.3 MP TOF 3D camera. And there is also a front camera that has one module: 8 MP Wide. If you judge only by the number of megapixels, then the main camera is very weak. But the frontcamera not very good, we have in our catalog real selfie smartphones. It seems that we have already written many times that before buying you need to see a smartphone and hold it in your hands. And speaking about cameras, I would like to repeat the same idea once again — look at the reviews about this model, see examples of photos taken by this smartphone. It often happens that in search of a low price, you buy a model with a camera of tens of megapixels, but the photos and videos will not be of high quality.

Processor and Internal Memory

Brilliant multi-core processor Snapdragon 865 installed in Sony Xperia 1 II. 8/12 GB of RAM will help make the interface work smoother. There is also built-in memory in the smartphone, which stores photos, videos, music and all your other data. The amount of this built-in memory is 256 GB. Memory cards you can also use, in this model are supported microSDXC-cards.

Price for Sony Xperia 1 II: buy or not to buy?

Price Sony Xperia 1 II at the start of sales was $874. A smartphone with this price level got into the price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500” and got a very powerful processor, a huge touch screen, and the front camera is not too cool with a very weak main camera.

If you want to buy Sony Xperia 1 II, you can choose any online store or offline electronics store, the main thing is to have a guarantee for the smartphone and the desired version of the model you have chosen.

Before buying, if you have the opportunity, it is better to hold the phone in your hands, check the screen, the quality of the photo and video, look at the smoothness and speed of the interface. Never buy a “cat in a bag”, be sure to check everything before buying. Today, good smartphones are worth a lot of money, so it′s better to spend an extra ten minutes to eventually buy the model that will work well one or two years and help you in everything.
