    4 days ago - By AndroidPhoneFans

    In the early days of the smartphone, Sony was one of the favorites of many, but over the years, the company's presence has kind of declined where they ultimately pulled out of several key markets that they operated in. It looks like they might be ready to make a comeback, especially on the back of their latest handset - the Sony Xperia 5 II. This is the latest flagship smartphone from the company that combines several features that could make it a compelling purchase. For starters, the phone will feature a 6.1-inch Full HD+ 21:9 CinemaWide display that will also feature a buttery smooth...

    Following a range of mark II updates, it's now the turn of the Xperia 5 to get its update. Refreshing the 2019 model , the Xperia 5 II looks to offer power from within its compact body. The spec of the Xperia 5 II in many ways mirror those of the flagship Xperia 1 II , so this is a flagship-grade Snapdragon 865 5G handset.

It's a 6.1-inch phone that sticks to 1080p resolution on its 21:9 OLED panel, but...

    When the Xperia 1 came out last year, it was clear that Sony wants to turn things around in its mobile division. The 21:9 aspect ratio and the 4K notch-less display marked a fresh start for Xperia smartphones. The Xperia 5 launched last September, reminding us of Sony's expertise in making compact flagships, and the good-ol' Xperia Compact days. Now the Japanese company is ready with a successor, behold the Sony Xperia 5 II.

    Here's How Much The Compact Sony Xperia 5 II Will Cost

    4 days ago - By Android Headlines

    The Sony Xperia 5 II is a pretty incredible smartphone, particularly for those that don't want a large phone. But the big question here is the price of the Xperia 5 II, and will it be available in the US.
    It's no secret that Sony smartphones are not cheap. They are generally pretty expensive, even compared to its competitors. But the Xperia 5 II price is set at $949. That is $300 less than the Xperia 1 II when it launched earlier this year. But given the smaller size here, many thought it would be cheaper.
    That puts it at a cheaper price than the Galaxy Note 20, but not by much.

    Sony is continuing its refresh of its smartphone line to focus on photography and video with the new Xperia 5 II. It's the smaller sibling of the very tall and weirdly expensive Xperia 1 II , and this newer phone betters it in several regards. It's cheaper, for one thing, going on sale on September 29th for $949. The other major improvement is that Sony has put in a high-refresh-rate 120Hz panel.
    Oddly, though, Sony says it's not shipping until December 4th and even more oddly, it will have 5G but won't work with the 5G networks in the US - just like the Xperia 1 II.
