Sony Xperia 1 II Review: Sony makes a great Android phone again


The Sony Xperia 1 II is Sony's best phone in ages. It takes inspiration from the brand's products and melds them into a phone that feels very different.

Fast focussing;A lovely screen;Great manual camera apps

Very expensive, especially compared to what else is on the market;Other phones take better pictures in auto mode

Sony Xperia 1 II review: it’s a stretch


Would you really want to take all of your smartphone photos in full manual?

Minimalist aesthetics ; Manual camera experience ; Minimal Android customizations

Too expensive ; Missing key flagship features like 5G (in the US), high refresh rate screen ; Slippery, awkward body

With the Xperia 1 II, Sony has finally found the right direction for its smartphones. Now it just needs to move a little further without tripping over its own price tag.

Sony Xperia 1 II review


Getting the band back together

4K HDR that fits in your pocket ; Pro-level stills and video recording apps ; 5G and CPU grunt to match the best phones

Size can be hard to handle, even with software help ; Photos more muted than rivals when shooting in Auto ; Pricey

Combines a cinephile-grade display with camera smarts taken straight from Sony's alpha division to great effect. Outright image quality might not be the best, but this feature-packed flagship is still one of the most photographer-friendly handsets around

Sony Xperia 1 II review: One-two punch


Finally, a Sony flagship worth buying (if you can afford it)

Outstanding, colour-accurate screen ; Great cameras for video ; Reliable performance

Expensive ; Plain design ; Battery life isn’t the best

There is, however, no getting around the fact that the Xperia 1 II is still an astonishing smartphone. In essence, it’s the complete package, bringing the culmination of Sony’s imaging credentials to smartphones, while simultaneously outdoing its...

Sony Xperia 1 II: Specs, release date and price of Sony’s first 5G phone


Strange name, but a good-looking phone

Sony says the Xperia 1 II will be available to buy from late spring. Given spring officially begins in March and finishes at the end of May, we’re probably looking towards the latter.

Sony Xperia 1 II Review


Our Sony Xperia 1 II review is here: the phone has a great camera that can wow you with its photos, it has a sleek "Sony" style, a solid battery life, but it never quite reaches out of its comfort zone as software is undercooked and signature features...

Beautifully crafted; Photos can sometimes truly wow you

Outrageous price; Frustrating camera app gets in the way of taking good photos and videos; Software is full of bugs; Easily overheats in warm weather

Sony Xperia 1 II Smartphone Review: Sample Photos & Video


We've got the Sony Xperia 1 II smartphone in for review which has separate Pro camera and video modes as well as a big display and promising photo quality.

The Sony Xperia 1 II smartphone is full of features but its unusual size/dimensions, price and fiddly pro camera mode will mean it's not everyone's ideal smartphone. However, those who enjoy watching films/tv shows on their smartphones will appreciate...

Sony Xperia 1 II review: A Sony phone I'd love to keep in my pocket (Video!)


The Sony Xperia 1 II is a wonderful smartphone. While Sony put a lot of focus into the Alpha-like camera experience, the rest of the phone is great enough to make up for the "just fine" camera quality. The Sony Xperia 1 II is a wonderful smartphone....

Great 21:9 display ; Fantastic performance ; Simplistic UI ; IP68 water and dust resistance ; Headphone jack ; Pro camera features

Subpar selfie camera ; Relatively slow charging ; Confusing main camera app

Sony Xperia 1 II review


With its pro image and video capture features, the Sony Xperia 1 II is out to seduce the most demanding camera enthusiasts

Stunning screen ; Advanced photo and video features ; Big improvement in battery capacity

Image quality good, not great ; 'Only' 3x optical zoom ; Some features of limited appeal

The Sony Xperia 1 II stands out from the crowd by offering a photo and video capture experience tailored towards enthusiasts and pros. If you fit this niche and prioritize pro camera features and image accuracy above all else, the Xperia 1 II is...
