Sony today officially unveiled the Sony Xperia 5 II. The new high-end smartphone has good reasons to win over some users, however, it is not a perfect device. Incidentally, Sony's decisions do not help either. But I'll explain in more detail.
Regarding the smartphone, it has almost everything we could want. Although the processor is not the latest of all, the Snapdragon 865 has already proven itself efficient on most of the high-end smartphones of 2020.

Looking at the specs, we can't ask for much more. We have excellent equipment. A smaller screen than most, that is, it will be a much more compact smartphone.
We just lack the biometric sensor on the screen. Even though it has all the conditions for this, due to the OLED screen, we still have the sensor on the side.
Cameras are where Sony invests the most. With the ability to shoot 4K at 120fps. Sony has already shown that it is in the market to stand out in the cameras and the truth is that it has done so.
The problems of the Sony Xperia 5 II
We start with its price. The terminal was revealed for 950 $ which means that it should reach 950 € to Europe. As much as it is a top of the range, it remains a value pulled for a brand that has not had a market in recent years. There is only one way to win the market, which is to invest heavily and lower prices as much as possible.
The flip side is Sony's poor management from revelation to arrival in customers' pockets. Since there are many technological lovers who buy impulsively, this Sony does not give us that.
The terminal was revealed today, pre-sales will start on September 29 and smartphones will only reach customers' pockets on December 4. Inadmissible.
