notafanboy, 19 Apr 20211.1x zoom is not real zoom. Do your researchI don't have to....U do a research by checking out gsmarena review video on S21.....I'm sure u will know whether 1.1x zoom is real or not.....

I agree 3x is better than 1.1x....but u r saying 1.1x zoom in such a way it is like nothing as if it will do nothing just a false telephoto lens samsung has provided.....

Checkout review video of gsmarena on S21

Alpha, 20 Apr 2021Are you on crack? are you? 1.1x zoom is pathetically bad compared to 3x zoom or 5x periscope.

For me, those are worthy features => Xperia offers more features for money. On the other hand, I don't think 1000$ is s fair price for any phone. I'd rather buy 2 quality mid-range phones and a Coke for this price :)

Yazo, 17 Apr 2021Hey Sony it's time for new compact model.... Wait, Yazo, didn't you read Anonymous?? Can't have a narrow screen because apparently you need "girly fingers." Apparently Anonymous couldn't type on a smartphone until a two or 3 years ago...

One of their main selling point is their camera system along with their photo and cinema pro app to offer similar experience of their alpha cameras with a lesser price. Not everyone owns a DSLR. Also, not everyone brings their professional cameras with them all the time.

Where do I pre-order these phones I live in United States

Alpha, 18 Apr 2021Oh the irony! Sony has nothing new but Apple does right? Ma... moreThey are not wrong actually. If you look at the Xperia 5 II compared to the 5 III, you'll realize there is in fact not much of a difference.

The main turn off for me is the bloody long display and that ridiculous pricing which is basically equivalent to both the S21 Ultra and Mi 11 Ultra. For the price, they should at least offer larger camera sensors for proper low light performance, a brighter and larger display (even the mid-range Samsung A52 5G has a larger and brighter screen), and a larger battery.

Guess the majority of the consumers who vote with their brains and not brand loyalty can depend on the loyal Sony Fan Cult to fund Sony this year again, which will offer them yet another chance to test the market with their next iteration. If they can get it right the next round, we'll thank the loyal Sony Fans for sticking with Sony through thick and thin and sponsoring all of their past iterations/projects that had constantly failed to gain a significant amount of mobile market share (Currently, Sony's presence in the mobile space is still too insignificant that they are nowhere to be seen in the official market share charts. It is evident that the MK II phones failed to gain attention, which is highly likely caused by the ridiculous price to feature ratio. Positioning against the Mi 11 Ultra and S21 Ultra will continue this downtrend, sadly.).

Here's to hoping the Sony Fan Cult would continue defending and funding Sony's experiments! The rest of us will go for the complete product if Sony succeeds in future iterations! See this as a win-win on both sides. Cheers!
