Nearly two years after SONY launched its high-end flagship phone in September 2020, a number of owners of SONY Xperia 5 II phones are having trouble, claiming that the phone's screen appears as a green or pink vertical bar.
Several users on the Reddit community reported that their SONY Xperia 5 II had green or pink vertical lines that appeared without falling or falling into the water for no apparent reason. It is unclear whether the defect is a hardware or software cause.
To make matters worse, most users' warranties have expired, and SONY has refused to give them free screen replacements.
According to Android Police, users of Samsung's Galaxy S20 last year experienced a similar problem, with green vertical bars appearing on the screen after the warranty period ended. Android Police said that if Samsung also provided an OLED screen for the SONY Xperia 5 II, it would prove that the 2020 batch of Samsung screens had a problem, and not entirely SONY's fault.
IT Home has learned that the SONY Xperia 5 II was launched on September 17, 2020, with a price of 5,999 yuan for the first KBC launch. The screen size is 6.1 inches and the resolution is 2520×. 1080, supports 120Hz refresh rate, is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chip, front 8 megapixels, rear 12 megapixels, 4000mAh battery, support 18W fast charge.
