Watch the video to explore the Xperia 5 II gaming experience from the perspectives of our engineers and pro gamers.
Input from eSports players helped us significantly improve the accuracy of touch performance on the Xperia 5 II – so when you aim, you don’t miss. It also responds to your touch response up to 35% faster than its predecessor, the Xperia 5, buying you vital split seconds when you need them most.
Gaming is CPU-intensive, causing fluctuations in performance and speed. So the Xperia 5 II features CPU control to optimise performance efficiency specifically for gameplay. This means Call of Duty®: Mobile players can now expect 120Hz multiplayer experience at peak performance with 97% stability.
Prolonged high-level gameplay requires the phone to be powered using the charging cable. This generates heat, which affects gaming performance. Heat Suppression power control tackles this by powering the phone systems and applications directly from the charger, bypassing the battery to reduce thermal stress.
To maximise clarity of movement on screen the refresh rate on the Xperia 5 II has been upgraded from 60Hz to 120Hz – and by digitally inserting black frames, players get the effect of 240Hz with reduced motion blur. The engineers fine-tuned the frequency and ratio with the Pro-players to ensure the right balance of display brightness and motion blur reduction.

Game enhancer offers a range of features and settings to improve your gaming experience. Watch the video below to find out more.
Another key Game enhancer feature, 240Hz Motion blur reduction delivers incredibly smooth on-screen action. Gameplay is supremely crisp and sharp – even big directional movements are blur-free – helping to maximise your game awareness and enjoyment.
To meet the demands of eSports in particular, the Xperia 5 II offers an increased Touch scanning rate of 240Hz for super-fast touch response. In tight situations, it can make all the difference.
If you’re gaming while your Xperia is connected to a charging adaptor, Heat Suppression power control helps prevent overheating and protect your battery from damage. Which means you can play for longer without compromising performance.
Activate competition setting to turn your Xperia into a dedicated gaming device with nothing to distract you from the action. Notifications, alerts and incoming calls are all disabled so you can focus purely on your gameplay.
Planning to record and share your gaming online? Audio mixer lets you adjust voice volume and game volume separately for a balanced sound. And it lets you record at maximum volume even if you’re gaming at low volume on a headset.
