Performance-wise, this Xperia comes with Snapdragon 855 which is standard for a 2019 Android flagship. It has 6GB of RAM memory, and 128GB of storage enough for most people. Those who need more storage can do so with a MicroSD card expansion slot. Battery is rated at 3,140 mAh, and charging is done with a fast-charging 18W USB-C adapter.
