Why would you want a punch hole or a notch on your screen? This Sony and the Pixel 4XL got it right. Slightly under my 7T Pro McLaren.

i think i would go for the s10+ or the oneplus 7 pro. but with the xperia 1 mark II comeing out with a headphone jack, much larger battery, apparently much better speakers, wireless charging, and all of those perks, i think i might go with the xperia for my favorite NEW phone.

I've been using the S10 Plus for months and bought the Xperia 1 a few days ago. Now after watching a ton of movies on the phone, I can't stand to look at the S10 Plus. It seems less sharp and yellowish. The screen on the Xperia 1 is really fantastic. The camera on the other hand is more than adequate. Great in daylight and not that great in low light.

It comes with a small 3.5 mm adapter jack. I actually kind of like this better, because if you use quality over the ear headphones I can't connect to the jack if I have a case on the phone.

3.08 I'm surprised. I sent my Samsung Galaxy s10 plus back as I didn't like the notches and holes on the screen. Bezels are better than irritants on the screen. Would anyone like holes on their TV screen?

And what would you say about the microphone quality? During calls, the Xperia XZ Premium has been perfect for filtering the surrounding sounds, but Xperia 1 has been doing very crappy job, apart from the voice, you can hear totally everything around the person talking to you on Xperia 1. Can you try and do a test on that, and see how it's doing?

Linus, did you have any focus issues with the camera? Like images taken with the subject at a distance coming out unsharp? I have that problem and i have 2 Xperia 1's and both have problems with auto focus.

Every reviewer misses that high resolution audio is a huge Sony feature! Everyone listens to audio on phones n for Sony to include this is a big deal! You don’t need a stand alone high resolution audio player. Just this phone! That adds a few hundred dollars in value in my opinion! So best audio n best video! Hmm unless you like worse quality why wouldn’t you get this phone? I’m so confused by all these stupid reviewers

There is a face unlock provided by Google in security settings. And it's not obvious camera, its a small icon of a face to know its unlocked and you swipe up.

Is the white one you're using available anywhere in the UK (will Sony UK support it for repairs)? It seems that most outlets only sell the black or purple one and there's no sign of the grey one either! Carphone have got it on offer for £699 which is more palatable than the £849 original asking price given the stiff competition. I'm contemplating it given the Note10+ also has no headphone socket and is not on offer, yet!

I think its in sense wrong for reviewers to say that Sony camera isnt better than S10+ or not in the same place. To be frank Sony Xperia 1 is as good as Samsung galaxy S10+. Maybe you should put it more like this. Sony aint a good point and shoot camera I'll give you that. But if you are a photographer and wants to plan your photos, its in sense better than any other phone on the market. Its in Manual mode Sony-phones always shined on. So yes, High dynamic range might be bad on Xperia 1 in automatic intelligent mode because the HDR is de-activated to let EYE-focus work properly. Because it seems to not work while HDR is activated. But if you use manual mode HDR is activated. And yes it seems like Stabilisation isnt that good when filming in 4K, but how can that be a problem really. Just stand still and it wont be if you wanna move, use a hand-held gimbal. I think just because you reviewers (not just you that is) is kinda lazy and not really try the features where Sony Xperia 1 do shines in like manual mode, and everytime someone points that out, the answer is always, normal people dont use that. But normal people dont use many of those features of Samsung devices or huawei devices, but you do reviews though features. Thats its just this strange double standard amongs reviewers. Sony phones never really gets the cred it deserves because of lazyness. Yes you did take your time for this review... 1 month is kinda a long time, not to try the manual mode for real. Sony camera gets written down just because he point and shoot capabilities isnt as good as the others, but the others aint that good in manual mode either. Only LG can compete with a SOny phones manual mode...And they do have the same issue... no one really tries that out. Somehow LG manage to make a good point and shoot.

Xperia 1camera is superb... You can see the natural colors also more details then galaxy s10 plus.... 21:9 is best way to see Netflix... Also oled 4k screen is best in the market... Xperia 1is way ahead.. Those people who purchased given 4 star.. Don't use beauty mode u look grt in normal mode

Great unbiased review. S10 plus is better all around. I've been using it for a week now. I have not seen xperia 1 yet so I can't say if the screen is better. I can say the s10 plus screen is amazing. At half brightness its visible in sunlight. And I've had many "wow" moments with pictures and video. Taking professional looking stuff with no effort. Speakers are fooling me into thinking they are true stereo, and so clear and loud. And a headphone jack for more crowded environments.

Great review! Shaky videos in 4k must have been before FW upgrade. If I turn on stabilization from CinemaPro app, 4k videos look smooth. Not as stable as Xperia1's 1080 standard but smooth enough to get cinematic shots.

You're taking pictures wrong....to get the most out of Sony Xperia devices, you should use the dedicated physical shutter button. Half press to focus, full press to take picture just like a regular camera-novel concept. I earnestly don't understand why anyone would opt to use the screen button when there's a shutter button. I get that it has become the norm, but it's really inferior to the physical shutter button. Again, the volume buttons are for zooming in/out, which is also a more natural way of doing it. No mention of eye auto focus.
