      It's a nice phone. I like the built and i love sony display... Just that on always on display, i get a grey brown in an ova shape when looking at it in a dark room... The battery screen on time is 5hours 10 minutes from full charge till 5%.. I'm on Android 13.. it's very stable and everything is working very well... I did a factory reset immediately after update... But I'm not very pleased with the camera, i thought this phone is going to be a beast among android device due to the lens underneath it, but it's quite the opposite... The camera from the alpha app is not very impressive and it's difficult to understand.. i would have equally suggest that sony should have allowed the use of third party camera apps like the gcam.. but it isn't working .. I'm from Nigeria and people do like something very user friendly.. i have used all the Sony flagship from 2011 till date without missing anyone.. but this is the most expensive and has done little good compare to the previous models.. i huge Sony to make camera on their device more better... It's one of the most selling aspects of a flagship device

        haha bobo, 04 Aug 2021This device is very underwhelming compared to the recent fl... moreYet the Mi 11 Ultra success didn't make Xiaomi released 12S Ultra to global market that they should have been, and the 1 III controversy and some fails around the net didn't hinder Sony, but even keep motivating Sony to released Xperia 1 IV globally and far better than 1 III, regardless of the comments and bring back true optical zoom that mostly though Oppo will do it first since Zenfone Zoom, meaning Sony is consistent with their decision right now to keep Xperia on the market.

Sony have gone through 2 months worth of diagnostic tests and cannot identify the problem, and certainly have not identified the solution.
                In the meantime, I have not had mobile data, and can only make calls when standing underneath a mobile cell antenna!

                  New update to a13 was a surprise and it pissed me off. Reboot after update messed up the DPI making everything small. I recommend changing it to 379 in dev options. Other than that Android 13 is more or less the same with slight UI changes. You'll get used to it in a day if you already like 12. As for performance I haven't noticed anything different.

                              Is this phone worth buying at 300$ (used but in Mint condition)? I really love sony phones, but the Mark IV is priced illogically high in my country (BD). Are there any Major differences except the SoC between III and IV to spend almost 650$ more for the IV? Please let me know if any major bugs or drawbacks of Xperia 1 III, to use in 2023.

                                Also it isnt really a hassle compared to other phones out there that don't have sdcard slot where you can store majority of your important files like photos, docs, etc. for instant access since cloud could cost you data or takes a while to upload then download them.

I truly appreciate your help, but the reset is truly a hassle, and I won't do it unless it's absolutely the only thing left. I'm just sick of Sony's weird bugs. We take the risk and buy their unsupported and near impossible to find products and all we get is underwhelming performance and bugs.
