Communication and voice calls
The compact Xperia 5 II provides all necessary modules and connectivity options: 5G, NFC, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, and navigation supported by GPS and Galileo. From physical sockets we have USB-C (USB 3.0) and a universal minijack.
I have no concerns towards calls taken with Xperia 5 II – interlocutors heard me loud and clear, without any noises from the background, I had no problems with hearing and understanding them as well.
Memory and efficiency
Xperia 5 II has 128GB of internal UFS 3.0 memory. In practice, the user is left with around 20% less memory after turning the phone on for the first time, which is slightly more than 102 GB. In addition, the smartphone supports microSD cards – by taking one slot for a SIM card.
Snapdragon 865, which supports 5G network (X55 modem), is responsible for efficiency, speed and smoothness of work. It is supported by Adreno 650 GPU and 8GB of RAM. In an everyday usage, the smartphone works flawlessly – it is perfectly fast and smooth, with the display almost entirely set to 120 Hz. You will not notice any lags or delays. Apps run instantly and there are no delays while switching between them. It works perfectly while gaming – I checked it with Real Racing 3 and Asphalt 9. Let us not forget about the software support for gamers – Game Enhancer – which controls the display refreshment rate, it can control the touch reaction and it manages the battery while gaming. To sum it up – Snapdragon 865 and 8GB of RAM ensures the efficiency of a true flagship and in this manner Sony Xperia 5 II will definitely not disappoint you.
