He cleary tested it, as he did all devices before, in open sunlight scenario with autobrightness on, to get max lux/nit level available. He even videorecords the test while testing, so to be as credible as possible.

You folk keep trying to anyhow discredit the guy with no avail, but his testing methods are some of most consistant on the web.

Speaks more of you people, than him, one of better quality rev out there.

Xperia 1 III has some features that are futureproof like the screen in particular. Now I hope the Xperia 1 V (no IV because in Japan, 4 means death) made improvements like brighter 4K 120hz OLED/miniLED screen a la Samsung (Ultra class).

If I decide to pay the ludicrous and ridiculous amount of money that makers are asking for their flagships these days, I would go for the XPERIA without second thoughts. For the B-E-S-T camera samples you have ever uploaded in this website (main and ultrawide). Because I want everything, including a jack and a memory slot and a charger. Because I don't like holes in the middle of the screen. Because this is a proper flagship and not a bucket of useless gimmicks.

It's surprising that a few people here are still doubling down on their misconceptions and present utter misinformation as some sort of reliable fact that is worth believing over GSMArena's test results carried out in the controlled environment.

My s21 ultra works totally fine in my fitness gym with download speed up to 100mbps , Xperia 1 ii can't even find the network! On top of that I have a Sony wh-1000xm4 that works so well on the s21 ultra but with the Xperia 1ii the connection drops all the time , anything after 5 meters away ....I swap the Xperia for another Xperia 1 ii and the same thing .

Looking at DXOmark ranking upon camera performance I see no Sony smartphone in the top 30. What would this tell you? Put it simple, Sony lacks good engineers. Chinese companies like Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi, Meizu, although not having Sony's reputation and decades of expertise in audio-video, they manage to produce every six months smartphones that are actually replacing DSLR cameras in vacation. I have a backpack with a Canon DSLR and three Canon (expensive) lenses, but I don't take it with me anymore, the smartphone is enough (shoots RAW). Why is Sony so painfully trying to make smartphones, even though nobody wants them anymore? Because that's japanese culture, it's not that simple to fire those engineers that cannot simply make a good flagship phone. Remember what Carlos Ghosn did when he took controll of Nissan-Renault alliance. He stopped completely the production of the cars that did not sel. He reorganized the supply chain and restructured the technology core. The new Nissans where based on Renault technology that was cheaper and proven by the millions of cars sold in Europe. Do you realize how bad for business can be a decision based on hand shake by two japanese CEOs that abide to Bushido honor code instead of business efficiency? Nissan had a stock of 3 millions air bags, even though it did not sell cars, because there was an agreement to buy those airbags from the company that produced them, and the honor code dictated that Nissan buys the product even if it goes to bankruptcy.
This story is just o ilustrate the possible explanation for Sony's inability to make good phones.
