The all new Sony Xperia 1 II, let's see what it's all about!
The brand new Sony Xperia 1 II is available for pre-register now and you will be able to order from us later this year. Clove Technology have been doing some research as to why this will more than likely be the phone for you.
If you consider yourself to be the creative type, then this may be exactly what you are looking for in a smartphone.
From running a poll on our Instagram @CloveTechnology, we've seen that a massive 73% of you feel that the camera is the most important part of buying a new phone, so let's start there.
Sony have co-developed the camera with the engineers behind the newest professional Alpha cameras. They have included controls which you would usually find on a professional camera for example auto eye focus, which works on both humans and animals, a dual photo sensor and fast focus even when you are in a low light setting. The camera on the Xperia 1 II definitely meets the needs and demands of a professional photographer with its outstanding ZIESS quality, as well as creating great videos and photographs to keep up with your hobby.
The Xperia 1 II can also secure moments that no other smartphone can do. It captures up to 20 frames per second whilst making sure that you have completely accurate auto focus by using its 3D iToF sensor. The sensor is inside the camera and it very cleverly calculates the distance. Not only that, but the smartphone will instinctively apply auto exposure for the best lighting.
In our Instagram poll, the other 27% of you voted that sound quality was more important over the camera. If that is also the case for you then no need to worry, Sony have got you covered too. The sound technology in the Xperia 1 II was overseen by audio experts so you have the best quality with a natural sound space and better stereo separation. With its two stereo speakers at either end of the phone and the dynamic vibration system, you've got perfectly balanced 360 reality audio whether you're playing video games, listening to music or watching a film or video. There is a 3.5mm audio jack or you can connect wirelessly.
Is the Sony Xperia 1 II waterproof?
Another feature that has been found to be key when getting a new phone is whether it is waterproof or not. Having a waterproof phone is fantastic if you're wanting to create some great memories on holiday for example, or if you're clumsy...
Whichever one you are, from doing some research Clove have found that the Xperia 1 II is water resistant. When a device has an IP65/68 certification like the Sony Xperia 1 II does, it means that it can withstand both a certain amount of spray as well as immersion under water. Although Clove Technology have not tested this, according to the official Sony website it claims that the Xperia 1 II is protected against low pressure jets and full immersion up to 1.5 Meters for 30 minutes.
The smartphone has a 4,000 mAh battery with fast charging and has convenient wireless charging too. Sony have really gone all out with this device and included charging monitors. This means that your smartphone wont be over charged or over worked therefore a longer battery life.
There is 254GB of internal storage and compatibility with 1TB SD cards. The 5G mobile data connectivity offers you the ability to quickly share high quality content with friends on social media. You can also connect to the internet like never before and download data incredibly fast.
The smartphone also includes PS4 Remote Play. This enables you to enjoy your favourite games on your mobile and there is DUALSHOCK4 compatibility, so your gaming performance is maintained.
