  1. i have gone all over youtube and also asked questions on r/android on reddit and hardly anyone knows anything about this phone except in Japan and in Taiwan…because yeah this phone is not sold in Europe…

    I am considering this phone in Spring 2022 or maybe just buy Sony Xperia 5 ii, as it still has a headphone jack and is seen as flagship (or upper mid range)
