DESIGN AND DISPLAY
Since they still have top and bottom bezels, Sony’s flagship phones are easily distinguishable from those from other manufacturers. This enables the company to have front-facing stereo speakers that, according to the company, sound better than those found on other mainstream smartphones. The Sony Xperia 5 II has a 6.1-inch AMOLED display. The monitor isn’t particularly large, but it does have a tall aspect ratio of 16:9.
Sony had previously stated that the Xperia 1 II’s display, with its “Motion Blur Reduction” feature, was comparable to mainstream 90Hz panels. Xperia also included 240Hz Motion Blur Reduction technology for a blur-free experience in addition to the higher refresh rate.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 SoC, which is a common option for 2020 flagships, powers the Sony Xperia 5 II. However, given the phone’s price and gaming features, we’re left wondering what kept Sony from including the more powerful SD 865+.
In comparison to the Xperia 1 II, the 5 II has a better cooling system, which includes a graphite heat sink. The HS Power Control feature on the Xperia 5 II is another useful feature, as it allows the charger to power the phone directly without going through the battery. This feature is supposed to keep the computer cool during extended gaming sessions.
The camera on the Xperia 5 II is another place where it shines. The camera configuration is almost identical to the Xperia 1 II’s, with the exception of the latter’s inclusion of a ToF sensor. Within a pill-shaped camera module, three 12MP Zeiss-powered sensors are arranged vertically.
The primary lens is a 1/1.7” Exmor RS sensor with an 82-degree Angle of Vision. Similarly, the mega camera has a 124-degree Field of View. The third sensor has a 3x magnification capability.
Sony claims that the system can capture slow-motion videos at 120 frames per second and 4K HDR videos at 60 frames per second. They may also be used to zoom in and out of images. OIS is supported by the main camera, and both OIS and EIS are supported by the zoom lens. The primary camera also supports 5-axis stabilization in the Steady shot.
A 4,000mAh battery powers the entire setup and supports 21W USB PD charging. Within 30 minutes, it can charge the battery up to 50%. Because of the phone’s conventional nature, Sony is able to have a 3.5mm headphone port, which is an uncommon feature in the luxury consumer segment.
On the front of the unit is a dual-stereo mic. Dolby Atmos and 360 Reality Audio are supported by the system (TIDAL and other compatible services). Users will experience Hi-Res-like audio by attaching the unit to their preferred earphones, either wired or wireless, thanks to DSEE Ultimate.
