Sony Xperia 1 II review

£1,100.00 Typical price

Test scoreShow Context

Reviewed

No your eyes are not deceiving you, the Xperia 1 II really does cost almost £1,100. Sony isn’t the first brand to command such a steep price for one of its top-range smartphones and, judging by some of its headline features, it’s no surprise it’s so pricey. As well as touting 5G technology, it has a 4K display, triple rear lens and claims to be ‘built for speed’. Are these claims true? We sent the Sony Xperia 1 II straight to our labs to find out.
