Sony releases Android 11 update for Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 early

Sony Xperia 5 II review: A decent phone you shouldn't buy

Sony Xperia 5 II review: A decent phone you shouldn't buy

Premium Sony phones like the Xperia 5 II are hard to review. They're made for a very specific demographic — one so specific as to comprise roughly zero percent of the market. They're made for people who want both niche features like a physical shutter button and features that used to be common but now aren't, like headphone jacks, expandable storage, and displays without notches or hole-punches.

And that's fine! If you're a member of that subset of a subset of consumers, you'll probably like the Xperia 5 II very much. But the phone costs $950, which, after a barn burner of a year for very competent phones that cost $800, $700, $600, and less, is a bitter pill to swallow.

Sony begins its Android 11 rollout with Xperia 1 II update

Sony used to be one of the quickest manufacturers around when it came to releasing major Android updates, but the company has definitely slowed down in recent years.
