Summary

Control over how it looks, and sounds, and takes photos and video.Like any tool, though, you get more out of the Xperia 5 II when you’re prepared to put more in. For the most part, though, I think most people will be happy with recording video in the regular camera app.You can get good photographs out of the Sony Xperia 5 II, but you sometimes have to work to get them to look the way you want. Its cameras are powerful tools, but they’re not going to do the work for you.Sony has a very particular idea about the kind of phone it wants the Xperia 5 II to be. In Europe I think the €899 / £799 price makes a lot more sense given you get 5G support, but the lack of wireless charging remains.Sony’s Xperia 5 II feels like a very capable tool, but it’s expensive and sometimes makes you work to get the most out of it. But we started counting exactly how many times you have to hit “agree” to use devices when we review them since these are agreements most people don’t read and definitely can’t negotiate.To use the Sony Xperia 1 II, you must agree to:The following agreements are optional:Other features like Google Pay and Google Assistant may require additional agreements.Final tally: five mandatory agreements and at least five optional agreements.Photography by Jon Porter / The Verge
