CptPower, 07 Nov 2021Weekly poll results: the Sony Xperia Pro-I is well received... moreyou forgot the faster usbc, 4k display, front firing speakers (some people want it that way), 12Gb ram and the bigger 512GB of storage. For 720 you get only the 8/256GB mi11ultra version. Not to mention it is gonna be a shaddy import.

    this poll confirms what pro is for, at least as per sony, though, quite few participated, am i right? only 8k people?
    besides, pro og and pro i are on different category...
    xperia 1, 5, and 10 are more on the general public...
    and since 1, 5, and 10 are quite low on production as there are only few units from where i import my gadgets from, i expect pro i to be more scarce...
    hopefully, owners will take care of it, so i can buy a used one next year... ha ha... but i really want the vlogging package, not only the phone...

        Just as you have a history of bashing Sony, I don't see the need to bring this up since you do the exact same thing. Don't be a hypocrite.

        "My mirroless camera is collecting dust since the past 2 years. Mi 11 Ultra is the closest thing you can get to a mirroless/Dslr on a smartphone."

        You are either capping so hard, or you're absolutely horrendous at taking good photos. I guess when you can't use a camera, you'd want to resort to a smartphone. If you think a phone is close to a mirrorless or DSLR in any sense, then you're delusional.

            sony xperia pro i has set the bar higher for large sensor mobile camera flagship phones, i can see samsung note 22 ultra, oppo find 4x, xiaomi ultra 12 pro competing with sony during 2nd or 3rd quarter 2022 with similar 1" sensor flagships as well, iphone 17 max pro probably get a 1" sensor around 2026 based on their past record.

            I wonder if sony will consider other pro line xperias, maybe xperia pro a with audiophile grade dac and 4.4mm balanced output in late 2022, or even xperia pro g for gaming as sucessor to playstation vita and competitor to next generation switch 2 and portable steam deck by 2023

              Let me guess: You don't have a mirrorless, do you.

Sony doesn't have a 1/1.33 inch QB/Bayer sensor, and obviously Samsung-made one wouldn't be an option for the main camera.

                  1). Video editing software has an option to reduce the playback resolution for smoother preview
                  2). Downsampling is nowhere near as CPU/GPU intensive as applying filters and colour grading in real-time

Why do you think other Chinese phone manufacturers haven't been banned or even if they have they manage to get off the list (e.g. Xiaomi) rather quickly? Genius.

                      Therefore Sony can potentially sell their new one inch sensor to other OEMs next year to keep up with the hype.

                      Sony also was able to keep the camera bump smaller this way and allow for larger pixels, although this would only be valid if the 12MP were over the entire sensor, otherwise there's no real benefit. They also seem to price it in a way so it doesn't compete with their RX100 series of compact cameras.

                        I see people asking for a Pro-A.
                        With some hardware from Walkman.

                        1) never gonna happen
                        2) also, phone would cost more than the other Pro, there are few models of Walkman that cost more than their cellphones.

                                Anonymous, 07 Nov 2021Precisely 👌🏻I am just honest nothing else.

                                  Anonymous, 07 Nov 20211) xiaomi was announced for way more than 1000 dollars outs... more* Xiaomi promises 80% after 2 years. Sony promises near 100% after 3.

                                  Losing 400-500mAh / year is huge failure.

                                  Man you funny where Sonny said 100% after 3 years thats not only possible thats means you are complete liar and rest you said is also a good garbage compared to real facts.
