I mentioned gaming earlier, not only is it the best for mobile gaming, it is also compatible with the PS4 for wonderful gaming experiences and so many more.
This is an amazing phone that is worth getting. The cost for the Sony Xperia 1 II here in Nigeria starts from N480,000 and it can be found to buy on Jumia. Yes, expensive but worth its salt.
