You asked and Sony delivered – that’s the impression from last week’s poll where the Sony Xperia 5 II received an overwhelmingly positive response from fans.
The size seems perfect for most as only 16% stated that they wanted something smaller, something closer to the famed Compact models of yesteryear.
Going through the comments, it seems that (aside from size) the biggest criticism is price. Normally we’d say that price is temporary and you can wait a few months – but that’s easier said then done when the phone won’t even launch until a month from now.
If you hold out, you may score a great holiday deal, but that strategy risks missing out on the pre-order goodies. Speaking of, pre-orders should start a couple of days from now at least in some countries. We’ve compiled the dates and prices for your convenience.

The pre-order goodies are still not clear for every region, but we don know that, for example, US buyers will get a bundle worth $400 that includes a HyperX gaming headset, 10,000 mAh battery and CoD: Mobile points.
