Android version and market relevance

The long-awaited announcement of a new smartphone from the manufacturer Sony, which took place in May 2021 (in our catalog you can see all smarphones of 2021). This is a new model Sony Xperia Ace 2 (Japan) — smartphone works on Android 11, 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.

Sony Xperia Ace 2 (Japan) does not support two SIM cards, but if it′s important and necessary for you, we advise you to look in the directory smartphones with 2 sim cards. On this page, you can definitely pick up a good current model, which will suit you perfectly. And let’s look at an important function — the availability of 5G networks support in a smartphone. Sony Xperia Ace 2 (Japan) has not received support for 5G networks, but this does not mean that this model is bad and does not deserve your attention. Look at all the features of this smartphone and its price. It is possible that you will like it very much and will be suitable for purchase today. And after one or two years, when you choose the next new smartphone, then on the page of all 5G smartphones in our catalog you will see hundreds of smartphones from many manufacturers at different prices.

Screen, body and battery

Briefly describe the screen and the body of the smartphone. Sony Xperia Ace 2 (Japan) received IPS LCD-screen measuring 5.5 inches. This is a good average among smartphones, with this size it is still convenient to hold in your hands and much more information is placed on the screen. It′s more pleasant to watch movies or TV shows, play games and chat in chats.

And now let’s move on to describing the dimensions of the case. The ratio of screen size to body size of Sony Xperia Ace 2 (Japan) is very high, so the screen takes up almost all the space from edge to edge (but a little bit lacking to the parameters of a frameless smartphone). In addition, there is a small drop notch above the screen, which houses a selfie camera. Such a cutout significantly increases the usable area of the smartphone screen and even distinguishes the body design from other models. The thickness of the smartphone Sony Xperia Ace 2 (Japan) is 8.9 mm. This model, you can call “fat”, because today many smartphones with thinner cases are already being manufactured. And in such dimensions the engineers managed to put the battery on 4 500 mAh, and this is already the application for success and leadership in tests for the duration of the device from one battery charge.

Another of the features of the hull, we note that Sony Xperia Ace 2 (Japan) has dust, water protection. 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 most important characteristics of Sony Xperia Ace 2 (Japan) cameras: main camera received 13 MP Wide + 2 MP Depth sensor, front camera got 8 MP Wide. See examples of photos and videos from this smartphone to visually assess their quality. And the most interesting thing is that the main camera on the back of the body has several lenses (dual camera smartphones). That can do 2x zoom without losing quality. And with the help of at least two lenses, you can shoot portraits with the bokeh effect, this is when the background is blurred and the photo appears like depth. In this model, the selfie camera is on the front and you can see it. In 2019, smartphones were announced with a front camera, which is located inside the body and is not visible. When you need to take a photo, the front camera slides up from the body. You take your selfie, the photo is saved and then the camera goes down into the body. All smartphones with pop-up front camera from different producers at different prices are collected in the catalog. If you are interested in such models, we advise you to first watch video reviews about them, and then make a choice and buy.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Sony Xperia Ace 2 (Japan) is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Helio P35 (12nm). As for RAM, the memory module is used here 4 GB.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards microSDXC. You are only available 64 GB built-in memory, so you need to be more careful about what you store on the device.

Price for Sony Xperia Ace 2 (Japan): buy or not to buy?

Sony Xperia Ace 2 (Japan) is a very smart smartphone with a large screen and a cool main camera, and the front camera did not turn out super cool.
