      So, They are adopting the same approach but harder this time.
      Only premium products with heavy price.

      This tactics worked with their tv range,, So, should work here too.

        Therr's no need for the word continuous here. "Zoom" lens always means continuous. It just isn't used correctly by many people. Smartphones usually don't have zoom lenses, but prime lenses.

At least, that's what I'm thinking about it, which is a great move since announcing it around the same time as Samsung announces their new flagship would make them look bad due to super late release date.

                Very complete, but I would have put the fingerprint reader on the screen and I would have waited for the Snapdragon 8 gen 1+ to have given this device a boost, I imagine that Sony would leave it for the Xperia pro ll, in any case it has plenty of power

                  This time I was prepared to be disappointed. Sony out right refuses to come up to flagship standard. They are just bent on choosing 1 or 2 things to make better on a very dated device. "For Christ sake SONY!!" come up to flagship standard and then add all your fancy 'first'. The price won't be an issues just make it worth the money.

                                Anyone can buy charger thats right but noit all wendors who sells sony phones have Sony branded chargers exact ones supported by this phone. .

                                  i found my next phone!!!!After Samsung pretty much copied Apple with removing the jack and the microSD slot I stopped buying their phones.

                                    *no gorilla glass Victus on the back Not needed since anyone with a bit of brain buy a case or book case to protect whole phone.

                                    *no IP65/IP68 dust/water resistant certification Not needed since is an expensive gimmick not worth the money. Any waterproof case for 5 from alliexpress does a lot better job.
                                    10 seconds in sea water and your IP resistant phone is dead.

                                    *no expanded card slot.
                                    Cloud storage is your expansion. by the way 256 or 512GB is far more than enough.
                                    10 years back people had 16 up to 32 options and were happy. Your P*rn library doesnt impress anyone.

                                    *no 3.5mm jack Bluetooth audio is future since from very long time ago. And is always better because its wireless. Cables are obsolette and burden to me.

                                    Sony is officially one of the top dogs in the flagship smartphone sector.🤣😂😋 Since they excluded charger they arent.
                                    What next they exclude SD slot and jack??? Then what???

                                    Maybe oneplus 10 pro is not the best flagship on the market but contain far less bloatware than sony and a charger in the box. Rest is dependable but everybody needs a charger.

                                      Sony....the company that makes phones only to bring new camera stuff. Rest of the phone, dnt care, no need to change, improve. Much like Apple.
                                      I love Sony phones, they are beautiful to look at, but too expensive.

                                        SuuperBaka, 11 May 2022I wonder what people are gonna argue for thisNothing.
                                        For the first time in a decade, I'm impressed with Sony's product. That says a lot.
