Success Metrics



We are always looking forward to receive Sony's new version of their Xperia flagship. Indeed Sony is never following trends and Xperia have their own premium philosophy: iconic design, in house camera setup, premium screen and sound technology. While Sony Xperia flagship range is always integrating premium components it is not renowned for its battery life as Sony is usually choosing lower battery capacity and very high screen resolution. Although this allows to keep a comfortable weight and excellent reading experience it may disappoint end users who expect better battery performance. Let’s check how this Xperia 1 mark II performs on our ViserMark protocol.

Testing Results

First of all we have enjoyed Xperia 1 II during our testing as its size makes it very comfortable to hold. As well the combination of the snapdragon 865 and high end display offers a real premium feeling.

Unlike other flagship competitors Xperia 1 II doesn’t allow the end user to change the refresh rate. This one will remains at a standard 60Hz. Sony is innovating on this topic with a 4K 21:9 cinemawide display. Consequently ViserMark protocol has been executed with default screen settings.

As we could expect Xperia 1 II setup doesn’t achieve a good ViserMark battery life performance score. With around 33 hours of execution Sony Xperia 1 II hardly achieves 1.5 Days ranking, with a final score of 153.

Xperia 1 II achieved very similar execution time over the 2 runs.



Sony Xperia 1 II scores 153. This is a low score for a flagship. Xperia 1II integrates all components and features to offer a premium experience and we’ve truly appreciated using it. But unfortunately you’ll need to keep an eye on the fuel gauge.

ViserMark tests are performed with the strictest protocol in a controlled environment to ensure repetition and consistency powered and automated by SmartViser’s test automation solution viSer. The automation test includes a variety of user actions from calls to social media and periods of standby times.
