Sony Xperia 1 review

08 June 2019
Sony has completely revamped its Xperia series yet again, and this year the common denominator is the cinematic screen. Every new Xperia smartphone gets a 21:9 panel for the most immersive viewing experience, but the Xperia 1 is special. It is the Xperia Premium reborn, with a large 6.5" OLED 4K HDR display and today we'll get to know it better.

I have seen a night battle between Xperia 1 and XZ2 Premium.
Premium wiped the floor with 1.
The mono + aube is giant advantage.

I don't really care what everyone says.
This phone's ultra wide camera is far better than a lot of flagship cameras I've seen. The level of detail is insanely good, even for a smartphone camera, and others would take the need of using night mode just to achieve a nearly as good result.

Can anyone explain one thing to me. I have read many many reviews. On gsmarena they write top notch camera experience, whereas on the other webpage i read medium quality pictures. So what is the truth? Are the pictures and videos good or not?

Cinema Pro

Ok I'm waiting for mine still. Best buy. I refuse to cancel the purchase I was told the 16th today is the 23rd I kinda expect to wait the 30 day max due to only advertised 2 at the store and I suspect shipping is the issue at hand.
I came here for reviews not personal conversation between 2 people arguing back & forth.
Or others completely disadvertising saying 9 note is better. Read 12 so far like wow private message each other. The others didn't even buy or use them.
I was looking to hear about the camera.
Certain phones have a serious issue with 2 objects I will only name one which is taking a picture of fire which comes out blue. The other just comes out as a black void cause of focus. I'm gonna continue reading. But these are supposed to be reviews not a chat room.
I'd like to see actual comments on the phone and your interactions with them. How they operate and frustrations if any. Not comparing them. To me the stats are very good I'm highly interested in the camera system and how the pictures come out. Not really interested in gaming ex gamer apps aren't like a pc. Not to happy how gaming IS BEING DESTROYED by corporations for greed only. When my phone comes in I'll be back to leave a proper review.

And its not 'China style', its a street photography style (google about it), hence Leica involvement. Please, photography world is huge, its about capturing moments that tells story, not some dull food that looks unappealing with no photography skills at all, worst than real life subject (yeah your satay photo).

I see that u've been working hard downrate my ratings on my every post recently. Its pathetic u know. About 200 times already. Seems like GSMA should block your account. Maybe i will direct email to them.

U have to know when to choose with AI on or off. Using Pro Mode without touching anything, both Mate 20 & P30 can produce a very natural results.
