Sony isn't exactly a major player in the smartphone space anymore, but that doesn't mean you should immediately count it out when the company releases a new flagship.

I was at Bestbuy today checking out this phone and even though its little tall, the picture quality just snapping inside picture was amazing better then my iphone x or samsung galaxy s10e (i have both) I think I will be getting sony xperia 5 just because its little smaller.

Too tall.. Finicky side gestures.... Cameras good but not as good as apple, Samsung or Google. Pointless camera bump.. Could have made the phone half a mm thicker.

4:51 Damn straight. I love the Pixel 3 XL, but man is it abysmal in RAM management and battery life longevity. These are things I really did not have a problem with on my Xperia XZ1. Love the Pixel's camera, but Sony really does omptimization really well.

Mi 9T has a 48MP camera, a 3.5mm headphone jack and a 4000 mA battery...for $300. Good luck Sony.

True. There is more than MP that makes a camera and the headphone jack sucks really hard on that phone.

If this came out in 2017 It would made sony on the map Like i said with last year's xz3 The right phone in the wrong time and market Even if its awesome and powerful None will care cuz it doesnt follow the trend of (notches, motorized cameras or holepunches) that has become a thing now in the market Plus the price cant be justified since sony doesnt have that strong fanbase at all Wrong move sony You still have my respect But if you wanna continue making late moves in this market You'd better focus on playstation,movies and camera sensors than wasting money in a dead brand

I've been wanting sony to get to the level samsung and apple is at with their smartphones. Bring in some more competition so we all can get newer, more exciting features quicker. That, and a sony xperia with a full screen display, i think would look super premium.

Probably the most positive review of a Sony mobile phone that I've ever seen. Just goes to show that other people can have different experiences with phones given their eye sight and other features that could influence their time with the device. And you cant fault others for saying negative things about the phone if that's how their experience went. On every Sony mobile review, people get way too salty over hearing that the phone isn't as good as they'd hoped it be which is just ridiculous. They shouldn't let other people's opinions away there own so much.

Everything else is behind other phones. Poor dynamic range, no video stabilization, low speaker quality, top bezel, no jack... I wanted to like it but cant.

Nice review 👍🏽 About the fp sensor you need to change the position(like the images sugest) while setting them up to let it work correct. I've noticed that on the side mounted fp scanners settimg them up costs a little more effort as jou need to register more fingers. right thumb, left index/middle/ring finger for when holding the phone and left thumb, right index and middle finger for when on the ground or car holder (in 1 of those positions also)

What is the camera performance like in detail? I have a Note 9, and I'm actually quite disappointed by the camera performance. I'm thinking of going for a Huawei phone next, but the Xperia 1 looks good.

You are the only person who thinks the camera is better than the OnePlus 7 Pro. Also, are you sure about that battery life? Most other people say it's mediocre.

No headphone jack means not for me, also the battery is a little lacking.
IceShieldGaming 10 months ago
I felt the same about the headphone jack, but on the other hand most headphones are wireless anyways now adays. And you can't tell the difference in quality. Battery wise, it keeps up with almost all the other phones with larger battery, check out phone battles ^^

Watching your video, I get the impression that people were paid to give it bad reviews. Unfortunately for them, the world has seen the truth and Xperia 1 has run out of stock in most shops around the world. Good phones come from Sony.
