When I first got the Xperia 1 II, I was a little surprised by its appearance and feel. The restrained and prudent colors, the high-quality texture and the comfortable and light touch make me touch it for a while. This is the first mobile phone that I did not worry about unlocking the experience system after I got it.
After the initial experience, I inexplicably jumped out a famous saying by Lao Luo in my mind: the sharp and heterogeneous of the sleek era-of course, this is not to say that the Xperia 1 II cut hands, but to say that the Sony mobile phone passed me the feeling, which is similar to other mobile phone manufacturers. Compared with that, it feels a bit maverick.
It’s hard to imagine that this is a 6.5-inch phone
The Xperia 1 II has a size of 166*72*7.9 mm and a weight of 181 grams. It supports IP68 water resistance. There is a side fingerprint button and a quick camera button on the right side of the fuselage. There are currently green, purple, white and black models available on the official website.
Don't look at the Xperia 1 II adopts a right-angle element design, but it is more "comfortable" to hold. Its right-angled frame is designed with a slightly curved big chamfer, from the frame to the screen or the back, it feels very smooth, and there is no jerky feeling.
Thanks to the 21:9 fish screen design, the body width is much narrower than the same 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro Max. Men can "grab with one hand" with one hand, and women are "friendly" to hold.
Probably because of thickness considerations, the fingerprint recognition key is designed on the side.

First look at the front. The screen of Xperia 1 II is a 6.5-inch 21:9 OLED screen with a resolution of 3840*1644 (4K HDR).
This screen adopts a 21:9 design, which is especially suitable for the scene of a smart phone. Swiping Weibo and articles vertically can reduce the number of times the finger slides on the screen. When the thumb is swiped and tapped on the opposite edge of the screen, it will not be very difficult .
When watching movies on the horizontal screen, the advantages of the Xperia 1 II screen are fully utilized. The 4K HDR display provides the current top visual effects, and the 21:9 ratio design maximizes the screen utilization. In addition, the front stereo dual The speakers and Dolby Atmos provide an excellent audio-visual experience.
From the back, the highlights of Xperia 1 II are also amazing. Its back is pleasing to the eye whether it is the color, the detailed design, or the glass texture. The right light color changes with different light, giving people the feeling that they are basically full of high-level sense, enough to see Sony's aesthetic and industrial design skills.
5G, fast charge, Universiade, 865, headphone jack, everything is available
Xperia 1 II is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chip, 12GB RAM, 256GB storage capacity, and also supports memory cards up to 1TB. The battery capacity is 4000mAh, and it supports wired fast charging and Qi wireless charging. When wired fast charging, it can be fully charged 50% in 30 minutes.
Xperia 1 II is also a 5G dual-mode full Netcom mobile phone. The measured 5G network speed is shown in the figure below.
When mobile phone manufacturers "cut off" the 3.5 mm headphone jack, Xperia 1 II still reserved the headphone jack, and it also has 360 Reality Audio hardware decoding capabilities.
I am a wooden ear and have no research on the sound quality of headphones. From the perspective of an ordinary user, I also use wired headphones. The sound quality of Xperia 1 II and domestic mobile phones at the same price have their own advantages. Xperia 1 II is more clear, vocals and musical instruments. The details are easier to distinguish, and it is more suitable for listening to soft music. The sound effects of domestic mobile phones are more ear-catching, and the sound is obviously rendered, suitable for listening to pop music or electronic music.
A photo experience like a camera
Sony SLR cameras are well-known in the industry, and this advantage also extends to the masters of Xperia 1 II.
There are two "master" apps in Xperia 1 II, one is "Photographer" and the other is "Movie Master", which can provide a more professional photography mode with higher playability.
Their interface feels very "master". It is completely different from the mobile phone camera app interface. There are many adjustable parameters, which are similar to the number of parameters on the camera. After careful adjustment, it can output high-quality RAW photos. You can also make a blockbuster video similar to a movie.

In addition, Xperia 1 II has two highlights that surprised me this time. One is the high-speed continuous shooting and portrait/pet eye focus function of Sony Micro-Single in photography, and the other is the camera 4K HDR 120FPS slow motion video recording function.
Especially for me, eye focusing is just needed function, because I am a shit shoveler, and occasionally like to take pictures of my dog, but the dog basically does not look at the lens when taking pictures. With Xperia 1 II, the phone camera will Automatically track the dog’s eyes and capture every cute moment of the dog.
▲ Focus on portrait/pet eyes
However, for ordinary people, the camera app is more suitable. You can get better-quality photos or videos with just one shot, and sharing on social platforms is very convenient.
▲ Wide-angle lens shooting
▲ Wide-angle lens shooting
▲ Wide-angle lens shooting
▲ Super wide-angle lens shooting
▲ Shooting with telephoto lens
▲ Wide-angle lens shooting
What I like the most is the ultra-fast focusing function, which can take clear pictures of people and things in motion, and to a certain extent solves the problem of smearing of highly moving objects.

It is worth mentioning that the Xperia 1 II has an independent button under the right side frame of the fuselage. When the screen is on, you can press and hold to quickly start the camera, and then short press to take a photo. Use this button on the horizontal screen to find the feeling of using a camera.
Top gaming performance, but the screen ratio needs to be adapted
When I got the Xperia 1 II, I was thinking, its screen ratio reached 21:9, will the game field of view be wider, and is there an advantage?
So I opened the King of Glory and did a test, and found that the game field of view was wider on the left and right, and narrower on the top and bottom. It took some time to adapt. As for whether the screen ratio will form an advantage, it depends on different games and differences The operator.

This 4K screen can of course turn on the ultra-clear picture quality of the game, the display effect is not unexpectedly clear, the look and feel is also very comfortable, and the control response is very sensitive.
The game performance level of the Snapdragon 865 is already recognized as the first echelon, so I won’t expand it here. From the experience of the two games, the Xperia 1 II has a smooth game experience, and there is a game assistant in the upper left corner, which provides incoming calls. With a series of thoughtful functions such as Do Not Disturb, automatically release memory, adjust phone performance, take screenshots and record screens, this game assistant really surprised me. Personally, I feel a little bit off the impression of Sony.
It is a good phone, but there is still room for improvement
If I were to give Xperia 1 II a one-sentence evaluation, I would say: It is a good phone, but there is still room for improvement.
The high-end appearance and excellent grip make people love it. 5G, Qualcomm 865, 4K screen, Sony lens, Universiade large memory, etc. have everything, but after experiencing it, I always feel that there is something that can quickly catch me " "Point", it is difficult to impress me on Sony phones.
However, for many Sony fans, the "nearly" Xperia 1 II just represents its persistence. Because of this, you can still see the unique "so" taste from it. This is exactly the Sony mobile phone. Where is the scarcity.
