      I understand phones at present are over-priced, but I'd be keen to know where you can buy one of these for less than $1000….

  • +6

    Such as great phone. 120hz refreshing rate and 240hz touching response. 4000 mah battery. 163gram.

    • +3

      This is the perfect phone of 2020. A return to no bull design. It is unfortunate they are not available locally and are expensive.

      • +2

        Great screen, great stereo speakers, great headphone jack, with water resistance, SD card slot, and wireless charging (my bad got it confused with the 1 2).

        This is literally my perfect phone. Even the price is fair vs Samsung and Apple flagships… but the lack of local availability/support is… ugh!

        • +1

          I have been eyeing this phone but as you said local unavailability is a major drawback. I think Sony should relaunch it's smartphone business here as I'm sure there have fans.

  • +3

    Toby sells 1219 bucks if they are reliable

  • +2

    I didn't know Sony phones still exist

    • They exited Australian market but they're still in other countries

  • 6.1 is compact?

    • +1

      70mm width, it's just long is how they measured the diagonal.
      22:9 aspect ratio

  • +1

    can you make my ps5 instead of this..

  • +1

    My last 3 phones were Sony's. Xperia Play, Xperia Z2, XZ Premium. Then they went and gave up our market.

    Not going to pursue them, already moved on to Pixel and love it, but very disappointed in Sony. It really is typical of them to give up unless its an absolute hit like their Bravia tv's and mainline Playstation consoles (outside of which I have no faith in them to support).

    I've seen Sony phones around the place. I know Samsung and Apple had them beat, but isn't some market share better than none? Especially for an electronics company? The phones already exist, just send smaller allocations to us to satisfy those who enjoy using them, but alas, no.

    • +4

      Absolutely not, there is zero point in selling in a market that is small but requires high over heads to service it.

    • You spoke my mind. The Xperia 1 ii and this phone are such a marvellous devices but unfortunate that they aren't available here anymore. I'm surprised even in US this phone is not available until Dec despite launching many months earlier.

    • +1

      My last three phones , Xperia Play, Xperia Z2, XZ Premium, lots of tiny issues , over heating, lagging, mic issue then I went to Huawei. No such a issue other than war games between China and US.

    • I was on the same boat. I was a loyal customer of Sony phone until they abandoned Australian market. Couldn't stand Samsung's phone so I went with Google Pixel

    • +1

      I owned z2, z3, z3+, z5 - pretty loyal huh, but I must say that despite having great design (thin, square, light - almost don't feel it in a pocket) and an amazing camera and being water/dust proof, all of them suffered from overheating, especially z5 - I couldn't record full hd 60fps video for longer periods of time and if it was a hot day, navigation could just freeze, while I drive or phone could just shut down leaving me not knowing where to go on an important crossroad or highway - and it would not turn on until it cools down (what might be problematic, cause it is still noon and I had to turn on AC in my car only so that phone could work), eventually one day it went to a loop, froze, became hot as hell, did shut down and never came back (motherboard was fried according to several different repair shops). And that's why z5 was my last Sony phone - I had to part ways with the brand, whose flagship at the time had such major issues. Now I am with LG and good so far.

  • How's Becextech compared to tobydeals and other grey market sellers etc?

    • I've had no issues with them, bought twice now through them.

  • +2

    I'm using it right now and can confirm it is the perfect phone.

  • Legend has it that they are giving away an XM4 with one of these.

    • +1

      I think that's with the newer model and it's a US-only promotion AFAIK.

      • +1

        You're right.

  • +2

    Toby deal has this phone for $1182 using code PBF displayed on there site,i did try it using it for a dummy purchuse

  • Do these have wireless charging?

    • +2

      Nope. Compared to the Xperia 1 II, the 5 II has a higher refresh rate screen, but they removed wireless charging.

  • +2

    I have a Xperia 1 ii and it's an impressive phone but it only offers basic 3G and 4G network connectivity with our local networks. The same will also apply to the 5 ii,

    • 5G network access gets blocked by Telstra after 2 days.
    • No VoLTE and VoWiFi - Phone is not supported by our

    • Perfect if you are on a mvno other than boost

      • +1

        No VoLTE/VoWIFI on Optus or Vodafone either. Not sure about 5G.

    • Why does 5G get blocked?

      Is there a whitelist for approved phones for 5G?

      • +1

        Not really sure why it's getting blocked. I've asked Telstra support and they don't know either. Seems to be some sort of automatic block from the network.

        There's no whitelist. According to Telstra FAQs (bottom of the page), you can bring your own 5G device and use it on their network.

  • Is it Sony's flagship of 2020?

    • It's the 'compact' version of their flagship phone the Xperia 1 II, as stated in someone elses post, this one comes with a higher refresh rate screen at a lower resolution but doesn't have wireless charging. Apart from that it's practically the same phone.

  • Yikes.. really thought Sony had given up on phones, guess it was only in the Aus market. At this price they really need to move on from this market segment and get back to what they do best.

  • They could've at lease tried to tie it in with ps5 gaming or something. This is just lol for the price

  • My favourite phone at this moment.. if only it's under $1000!

  • -2

    Jeez, who the heck comes up with the names of Sony's flagship phones. It seems so random and confusing

    I'm not surprised they aren't doing too well, they've been rehashing the same design since the inception of their first android phone (they've seemed to end that trend with this iteration). Not many people are too keen on buying a phone that looks like their last.

    In my eyes, about the only thing going for it is the headphone jack. You would hope that sony phones would have the best camera, since they make all the best phone lens on the market

  • +1

    Bought the Xperia 10 II, very happy with it except with the camera speed. Hope a near future software update resolves this

  • Bought Sony Xperia XZ Premium from JB last Christmas for $199. Amazing 4k HDR display! Waiting for Sony Xperia 5 II to be discounted at a similar price in 2022

    Tobydeals has it for $1182 now (applying code: PBF)

    Mymobile has it for $1197 : https://mymobile.com.au/sony-xperia-5-ii-dual-5g-256gb-xq-as...

    Buybuybox - $1096: http://buybuybox.com/product.php?id=53856

    how do they compare with Toby's or Becextech or Expansys or etc etc?

    • Not sure I've never bought from either. I've purchased from both Becextech and Expansys and not had any issues, just a long wait for delivery which is expected.

      • ok thx for that, I am rather apprehensive about buying a $1+k from some shop on the other side of the world……

        right now, I am leaning towards to either Kogan (yeah I know) or Mymobile, as they are supposed to be a local business, so if something goes wrong, at least I might have some recourse, or is that just my wishful thinking?

        • +1

          I just bought it on a CC that has insurance. So if the deal goes belly up I just get them to sort it out. Kogan do have them if it gives you peace of mind just buy through them.

          • +1

            @Viper18: ok thx for that, I will keep an eye out for any deals today :)
