You definitely don't buy a Sony phone for resale value!
Incredible price for a phone with so many expensive features
Below average camera according to DXO mark. Equal to note 8 and iphone 8

any thoughts on the camera?


Same as the Xperia 1 I had, comparable to the mate 20 x I had at that time, great camera, shots in most situations were excellent, point and shoot good for the kids, overall very good imo. For what most people will use it for, very acceptable, using all the toggles in pro mode etc is a different ball game.
I had this phone for a few weeks, the camera's autofocus is hit and miss, photo quality also not as good as some reviews suggest. I also found it a bit sluggish after a couple of weeks use, never expected it from a SD855. What I liked is the form factor, very comfortable as I don't like big phones.
Had this phone for over 3 months after finding the Note10+ too big. Biggest plus point is how nice it is to hold, battery life was also really good given the battery size, just a tiny bit worse than the Note10+ and the XS Max I had before. I don't really take pictures but I could tell it wasn't as nice, doesn't bother me though. One thing I didn't like was the vibration motor, it was noisy and lack refinement like the Pixel 4XL I use now.

I had to sell it in the end because the signal reception was just so bad, phone was from vodafone and using a 3 sim so don't know if it was an isolated case.

Edit- Also forgot the reason for selling is because the fingerprint reader RARELY works, I believe the physical size of the sensor and also partly the software caused this. It was just too annoying for something you first interact with everytime you pick it up.

That's not bad, Note 8 & iPhone 8 peer

Below average means quite below that benchmark. I guess you meant, below high bar set by best camera phones; that's likely

Dxomark's rating controversial these days

I meant considering it's a flagship from late 2019
If the camera is same as on Xperia 1 then it's good but average compared by flagship standards.

Biggest issue Sony have is with dynamic range and HDR, you'd really think they invest in that by now.

Really aren't holding out much hope for Xperia 1 II (gotta work on those names too ) even if it looks good on paper. Rare example of a flagship bringing headphone jack too!

Yeah, Sony had some catching up to do in camera department (previous models were good, just not as good as competition. Exception: XZ2 Premium, great camera but too large & heavy)

Looks like they haven't improved in the 1 2 or 1 ii or 1 II?!

The One iI?

Doubt they will, Sony are basically just keeping the mobile department around for and giggles.
Any Lebara customer confirm if their sim works in a vodafone handset?

If you remember I sent pictures and videos samples of my Xperia 1 when I was in Bournemouth July last 2019 the Xperia 1 and 5 are the same and some of the best natural pictures I've taken, people who haven't use these phones make harsh judgments without actually owning one. You know I have owned and and have sold many phones but to compare this to s8 is a joke. Dxomarks is becoming a joke and know one really takes them serious anymore to many inaccurate falsehoods.
@Bavy I was surprised to hear the great @MrSwitch praising camera set-up on this, he's notoriously difficult to satisfy smartphone-wise...

Grade A down to £240 btw

I have found adding a few versions of the same finger/thumb (in this case) helped a bit. I think it works best without a case on too which is annoying. Very hold able size which is nice compared to the giants on the market.
