        That's how Quick panel should look like.

          When I opened the package of my 1 III, some label said "Made in Japan".
          Not sure any more, if it said so about the packaging or the phone itself...

          Any idea where the 1 VI is being manufactured?

            People, don't listen to haters and fanatics of other brands. These are photos taken with 1V in Basic/Auto mode and it is 100% true:

            1VI is expensive, and in my opinion should be cheaper but please people dont lie about camera performance

Glass backs are a ... moreIt's there to facilitate wireless charging but it also helps companies sell more phones Without a case the phone is slippery and more likely to fall off a table of be dropped. People are more likely to but another phone. I'm not a conspiracy theorists, the conspiracy theorists scare me, in fact, but the glass back seems to be part of the planned obsolescence in these gadgets.

                    There are people who look at a pixel photo and then feel disgusted by the Processed appearance and lack of manual mode.

                    Neither are Pixel phones good for its battery life and performance.

                    Really, it depends on the person.

                      5G bands the Japanese 1 VI uses. I'll also list the US carriers that use the same bands.

                      n3 - none
                      n28 - none
                      n41 - T-Mobile
                      n77 - AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, US Cellular
                      n78 - none
                      n79 - none

                      LTE, plenty of carriers using the same bands as the Japanese 1 VI. 3G or 2G, is it still being used?

It's not all that hard to just register different fingers to unlock the phone. I unlock my phone using my right index finger. I do it that way, cause I'm usually picking up the phone in a way that my right index finger is there. I also have my right thumb registered, although I rarely unlock it with my thumb.

                          Anonymous, 17 May 2024Bullshit phone from SONYIt looks like a very good phone. It's just expensive and unavailable where I live but the phone itself seems like a very good phone with the style and features Androids used to have until they turned into Apple knock-offs. If it had a user replaceable battery and dedicated audio dacs it would have just about all that my LG V20 has. That was the best "smart" phone I've ever had. Good shape, not too large but not small, wide, still a larger nicer screen for watching almost all the films and shows I love, most of which aren't in widescreen or cinémascope, not that I really enjoy watching films on a phone. The notification screen at the top is more useful than an led notification light and even that's been removed since the V. That light is more useful than an extended zoom and the other slight camera improvements since the IV. The camera on the V20 isn't bad either, for a phone camera. It still works but it's sluggish and one channel of the headphone jack shorted out so I can't take advantage of its audio capabilities. The VI looks almost as good as that. Almost. I paid around $250.00 new.

                            What's with the glass back comment? Glass backs are a pointless addition to phones and the grippy back is much more functional and wont shatter if the device is dropped.

                            If you put a case on to protect it, then having a glass back is even more pointless. I never understood the appeal for it.

                              Bullshit phone from SONY

                                Remove the antiquated SD card and headphone jack and maybe I'll consider it.

                                Joking. I have read comments like that about Sony phones, though.

                                  Underworld, 17 May 2024This is a beautiful device. It brings some nice unique cap... moreWe're complaining about its lack of availability here. It seems likely that it won't be available here but if it is, we'll be complaining and the exorbitant price, justifiably. Still, it would be nice to know that it's available.

                                    Sony 1 VI is competition for Xiaomi "T" series or even lower tier phones.

                                      Nice phone. It has checked all things what I like in a phone including sd card, headphone jack, stock andriod and even the camera is great with the macro shots.

                                        Peace of crap for 1400? Premium price and worst camera i TOP camera phones? Is not 1st as a business phones, camera, any...thing?
                                        Good camera and small size? Pixel 8! Even i Japan Pixel sells better then Xperia
                                        Nobody care anymore about Sony phones, they are competition for Poco and Realme or fanboys of blind Sony fans. Sony is not i top 5 Even i Japan xD
