Important update: this model is updated to Android version 11.
Check the availability of the update version in your region on the manufacturer’s website.

Android version and market relevance

Dual-smartphone Sony Xperia 1 II introduced a company Sony in February 2020. It has Android version 10, which if you want, you can update to version 11. This new smartphone has also received support for high-speed 5G networks so that you can watch very high-quality 4K or even 8K videos on YouTube, play online games and not feel any inconvenience associated with the slow speed of mobile Internet.

Well, what can I say, Sony Xperia 1 II is a smartphone of 2020 with fairly normal characteristics, which is located in our price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”.

Screen, body and battery

It is worth paying attention to good 6.5-inch capacitive OLED touchscreen smartphone Sony Xperia 1 II. A real shoveler, which is great for watching videos, surfing the Internet and full-screen games. You will be very surprised at how much information is placed on one screen. But, unfortunately, with one hand you will not be comfortable with using a smartphone. In addition, Sony Xperia 1 II has very small frames around the screen (speaking in numbers, the screen occupies from 80% to 90% of the area of the entire front panel. The thickness of the case is 7.6 mm. This also accommodated a battery capacity of 4 000 mAh.

And you′ll love the Sony Xperia 1 II that there is support for protecting the case from dust and water.

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

The speed of the smartphone affects not only the optimized software (the newer Android, the better), but also the characteristics of the hardware: the processor and the amount of RAM. Sony Xperia 1 II has 8-core Snapdragon 865. You can select the RAM 8 GB or version 12 GB.

The amount of built-in memory in the smartphone is 256 GB and there are no other options to choose from. And if there was not enough internal memory, then you can save the necessary data on the memory card microSDXC .

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

$874 is the price for Sony Xperia 1 II at the start of sales. For this money you get a smartphone with a fast processor, a huge touch screen, with an ordinary camera for photos and video, and with a conventional front camera. And with such characteristics, the smartphone got into the price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”, where you can choose any other similar model for a same price.

And how important is the battery capacity in your smartphone? This model received a very good battery with increased capacity.

Sony Xperia 1 II will be available after the beginning of official sales. We always recommend that you look at the smartphone before you buy it to make sure that it fits you in all respects — screen size, case materials and build quality, speed and smoothness of the interface, photo and video quality, etc. After you choose a model, then you already look at the different offers from the sellers — you can buy it on the Internet or in the offline electronics supermarket. Buy where you prefer, where there are stocks and discounts, and where the seller guarantees the service of the device under warranty.
