In an earlier paper we showed that an abelian variety over a number field of fixed degree has a polarization whose degree is bounded by a power of its logarithmic Faltings height, provided there are only trivial endomorphisms. Here we greatly relax the endomorphism hypothesis, and we even eliminate it completely when the dimension is at most seven. Our methods ultimately go back to transcendence theory, with the asymmetric geometry of numbers as a new ingredient, together with what we call the Severi–Néron group, a variant of the Néron–Severi group.
