Worst phone I ever used. A lot of bugs, horrible screen with unnatural colors, ever transfering app doesn't work. 21:9 is also unusable. A lot of apps don't launch because of ratio, a lot of them work in 16:9 or 18:9.
Even cheap Xiaomi and Nokia phones are much more pleasant

Latest tests which I performed after Android 11 and factory reset... As an average user, with 80% of battery my phone endures 24-25h between two charges and 9h SoT.
SD 865 is super fast, everything works like a charm, fluid.
Regarding signal reception or similar problem which some of you asked, I personally didn't have any problem. I use though 4G because in my country there's still no 5G network.
Some of cons which I have are:
-no possibility to schedule AOD as it is possible for Night Light
-no possibility to turn on/off NFC from notification center
-volumes for ring and notification are not separated but set as one, so you can manipulate them only as one, and here I think notification volume should be a little louder

the best phone i ever had ! a true masterpiece ! Thank you SONY !

This will allow you to enable Dynamic Range Optimizer or Auto HDR priority (or OFF). You will get noticeable different results. I think the full AUTO mode in the Photo Pro app will use either one depending on the AI.

Thomassino, 10 Jun 2021Hi, I've been using a Huawei Mate 10 Pro, having issue... morehonest hot take but Xperia in a heartbeat. S21 and plus seem to basically be paying more for less hardware than you can get an S20 for now, the Ultra is par with last year's Note 20, and the Xperia just offers more features that are relevant to real world use (SD card slot, 3.5mm jack, etc). Whatever the S21 offers over the Xperia are basically all software and Samsung ecosystem based.

Hi, I've been using a Huawei Mate 10 Pro, having issues with it and am contemplating whether to get the Sony Xperia 5 II or Samsung S21. Any advice is much appreciated. :)

What charger I get when I buy XQ-AS72 set, my phone get hot when charge using stock charger, who have same experience here??

It's a pleasure to still have a choice of a device with a screen that is not too rounded in the corners. It would be perfect if the corners of the screen were really squared, but in this age of copy paste, I must be grateful to the only company not cloning all the hyped stupidity. Soon all screens will be rounded, like decades ago, let's just hope that people gets bored of it fast so we can have proper flat and squared screens again.

Anonymous, 28 May 2021Hahahahahah, you definitely don't understand screensI think he does more than you long. End the screen of the 5 II is perfect size imo way more comfortable than most common screens these days

Pretty good phone, the long screen can take some getting used to but its perfect for multitasking/split screening apps and Youtube.

Regarding battery, how many hours do you reach between two charges? Or better said, what is the the usual value of the "Last full charge" in battery settings...?

xperia 5 doesn't have 4k screen, but has 120 mhz

1 is more for everyday users
5 is more for gaming

I really like it by the way, have it for 5 months now and I'm pretty glad. Gaming is very nice on this phone, but for this purpose - you should also consider Asus Rog phone.

oneplus 9 or xperia 5 ii, i want a good phone, an all-rounder that can last at least 2 years

phones got a lot more expensive in recent times idk why, also now this phone is $712.99 for the 256GB ROM version which is an okay price. and i wouldn't say that overpricing is the same as gaslighting, at most it's having consumers potentially not realize that 1080p isn't the absolute best.
