Android version and market relevance

Sony Xperia 5 II is a novelty of 2020, which was officially announced in September the world′s electronics manufacturer — the company Sony. In addition, this smartphone supports the work of two SIM cards, here you are, and please, the first reason for buying this model (or any other dual-smartphone from the catalog).

In 2020 this new model works out of the box running the Android operating system 10. But in the market of android-smartphones an important factor when buying a new device is the possibility of updating it to a fresh version of the OS. So Sony Xperia 5 II can be updated to version 11, therefore, we believe that it can be added to the candidates for purchase.

There is another feature of this model — it works in the fifth generation networks (5G). This means that you can watch online video in 4K or even 8K quality without loading delay, you can play online games without freezing the interface. All 5G smartphones save battery power and can run longer than on 3G\LTE networks.

Screen, body and battery

The case Sony Xperia 5 II has got interesting features: very thin side frames, protection from dust and water (in the standards allowed by the standard, the smartphone can be influenced by water, submerged, etc.).

The screen Sony Xperia 5 II is made using the OLED technology, has a diagonal 6.1 inches and refresh rate 120 Hz. If the smoothness of the interface is important for you (especially in mobile games), then you need to choose smartphones with screens that have a refresh rate higher than 120 times per second. Such a very large main touch screen certainly affects the dimensions of the case, which has a thickness of 8 mm. Also inside the case is a battery with a capacity of 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 5 II has two cameras: main camera (12 MP Wide + 12 MP Telephoto + 12 MP UltraWide) and front-camera (8 MP Wide). If you look at the quality of the photo of the main camera, then you hardly will be satisfied with the quality of these photos, because the camera is rather weak. We advise buying (well, or at least look) camera phones. This is smartphones with very good cameras on the market.

In addition, the main camera has a feature, namely additional modules. It is better to judge about the advantages and disadvantages of several lenses in one smartphone, as well as about the possibilities of software image enhancement, by real photos and videos taken with such a camera. Therefore, be sure to look at all the photos of the Sony Xperia 5 II on this page in order to draw your conclusion on whether this is a good camera or not.

In this smartphone, the front camera is located as usual at the top of the screen, like in 99.9% of other models. We have collected smartphones with pop-up front camera in the catalog that may seem much more interesting to you. In these models, there are practically no frames around the screen, because the front camera is located inside the case and does not take up space above the screen. The selfie camera only pops up when you activate the front camera mode. Take a photo or video, exit the Camera application. And after that, the socket with the front camera drives into the body. Real engineering magic!

Processor and Internal Memory

A smartphone without a processor will not work. And the better the processor, the faster the smartphone works. Sony Xperia 5 II received 8-core processor Snapdragon 865. The amount of RAM in it is 8 GB.

But, more importantly, it′s the amount of built-in memory for storing your information (photo, video, music, etc.). Here you will receive 128/256 GB. This is again different versions of your choice. The more memory, the more expensive the version of the smartphone. You can still do this — buy a smartphone with a minimum amount of memory to save a bit, and buy a memory card microSDXC, because in this model there is a slot for memory cards.

Price for Sony Xperia 5 II: buy or not to buy?

Price Sony Xperia 5 II at the start of sales was $879. 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 5 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.
