The ultimate 2020 Review of Sony Xperia 1 II

The Sony Xperia 1 II it’s a new model, having been launched in mid-2020.
The overall quality of this smartphone is good. As it is a smartphone of higher features but the price is much higher than that of competitors, we recommend it for advanced smartphone users.

Main results

The Sony Xperia 1 II arrived on the market with Android 10, so there are no problems for security and compatibility with apps and other devices.
The 6.5″ screen with a resolution of 3840 x 1644 pixels is much more pleasant than that of other models and is also very quick to react to commands.
The battery of Sony Xperia 1 II is standard: in our scenario of use, its 4000 mAh allows it to reach 30 hours, which is on average.
The 234.2 GB of actual available internal memory (256 GB declared) are a lot, certainly enough to store our data, if not, we can use an SD memory card to expand the phone memory.
It suffered some minor damages in the drop test, but passed it well and can therefore be considered rather robust.
Models in this price range are usually very powerful and this phone is no exception: therefore, it can be used without problems even for tasks that require high performance, such as some video games.
The only noteworthy feature is the ability to access the phone by reading the fingerprint.
This model is compatible with 5G connection.


Sony Xperia 1 II has three rear cameras (the main one is 12 Mp) that allow you to get just enough quality photos, except in low light conditions where they are strangely good.
This mobile phone has an 8 Mp front camera, which allows you to take poor quality photos, so it is not possible to get good selfies.

✔️ Pros

  • It’s a 5G model
  • The operating system version is recent
  • It is one of the best models tested

❌ Cons

  • It is one of the most expensive models
