But also that Europe could see release a month before the US, which pushes the in-hand time to August. Still, summer's coming!

ASL, 11 May 202198.6 cm2 screen in 2021? really?And it has bezels and only 12mp cameras. But then again it does have a 4k 21:9 no punch hole screen, front facing stereo speakers and 20fps in focus burst mode. You can't have everything

ASL, 11 May 2021As x2pro owner, tell me 1 reason to choose xperia 1 III ove... moredisregarding price, i think it comes down to a matter of preference. x3pro is a great phone but some may prefer sony's characteristic features, including the photo pro options, near stock android (?), 3.5mm jack, lack of holepunch, and now the variable telephoto lens. xperia gives true professional-grade features. also in regards to the screen, tbf you are getting a 21:9 ratio with 4k support on the 1 III.

98.6 cm2 screen in 2021? really?

As x2pro owner, tell me 1 reason to choose xperia 1 III over x3pro?

LinuxFan, 10 May 2021Yes, I don't like switching phones. It's just to ... morei also do the same - to use my phone for as long as possible...
first main phone from xperia (before i left nokia basic phones as main phone) is miro which is still working up to this day, and ye, being a low-tier phone, and old now, it lags a lot...
then shifted to z1 compact...
bought another one as a work phone, z3...
got excited with z5 premium, so replaced my z3 which is still working too...
years pass, i settled with z1 compact and z5 premium for personal and work use, respectively...
just last year, i replaced my z1 compact with a "used" xz2 compact since my z1 compact already has a bad battery life, cannot go back to miro as it cannot run some apps (it stayed on ice cream sandwich)...
and due to sony bringing back 3.5mm jack, flatter sides (unlike xperia 1, and did not like the curved back on xz2 xz3 series) i finally upgraded to 1ii...
i still use my other phones, but currently maintaining xz2 compact and 1ii as home and work phone, respectively...
i think this will go on for 2-5 years, as planned...
but i admit that 1iii is so tempting, besides switching to a new phone is not that hard as there is an app to help...
btw, i also considered a samsung before, the series 9 (s9 and note9)... i think those were the best of samsung, everything is clean like the xperia... no holes or notches, but curved display turned me off...

LinuxFan, 10 May 2021It's laggy but still usable. I don't like switchi... moreThat is a Lag fest. But yeah I can understand the situation. You like spending high once and using the device for over a long period of time.

Welcome to SONY XPERIA community.

We take pride in claiming that all the XPERIA phones no matter what budget range they lie in are Lag free over time. Specially flagships don't even tend to crash or get stuck even with straight usage and not turning off the device even once over extremely long period of times(when I say extremely long period of time I mean 3+ years with ease). That means it will have ZERO down time on you.

You yes have you expectations set high for XPERIA 1 III. Because if you think you are not satisfied with camera or the phone lags in first 15 days. I highly recommend getting it replaced as it can be a faulty piece. You coming from Galaxy S7 may think a bit of Lag here and there is fine out of the box because you got used to it over this long period of time. But with XPERIA device it is not normal. Just giving you a heads up about what to expect out of the box.

Nick65, 10 May 2021Wow you kept your S7 for 5 years!? That's insane. I re... moreYes, I don't like switching phones. It's just to much effort to configure all those apps. Usually I buy one of the current top models, and then try to use it for as long as I can, usually about 5 years (my previous smartphone was Galaxy S2). And yes, it's seem very laggy, moreover it fell and now it is a little bit broken at the back, but still works. I could switch to my wife's previous Samsung, but as I said - don't like to configure all this apps every couple months, so waiting for Xperia 1 III.

I'm thinking we're looking at a beginning to mid summer release?... Hopefully?...

M.B, 10 May 2021Official specs on this website of Sony Asia https://www... moreNot much info out yet as hardly anyone has hands on experience with it yet. But there was one Chinese reviewer who posted comparison pics between iPhone 12 Pro vs Galaxy S21 Ultra vs XPERIA 1 III. XPERIA 1 III is color accurate, perfect color grading, much larger color volume and highly detailed. In low light XPERIA 1 III is much clean as well as detailed and accurate. Simply put XPERIA utterly destroyed the competition. Even the x4.4 zoom was clear with no noise in day light but sadly video had no coverage of it in low light condition.

Wait for more info but from what it was showed to be in that single video. Competition got destroyed, completely annihilated. Still I would recommend to wait and compare the info from other sources.

LinuxFan, 09 May 2021Well, I'm a little bit dissapointed by how Sony treats... moreWow you kept your S7 for 5 years!? That's insane. I remember the last update (Android 8) made the phone unusable because it made the phone insanely laggy and I'm not the only one. Soon after it kept boot-lopping and eventually the motherboard died.

LinuxFan, 09 May 2021Well, I'm a little bit dissapointed by how Sony treats... moreYou are a Legend as you managed to use that S7 for 5yrs. And I can bet that you are beyond the point of being sane. My friends who purchased S7 swapped it out in less than 1.5-2Yrs because S7 was lagging as hell. Some times it became so bad that all the data had ti be backed up and phone needed a factory-reset.
