    S22, 14 May 2023The only reason i will not consider buying Sony phones.It gets 2 years of OS updates and 3 years of security updates just like the past 4 generations of Xperia phones. I don't know where you got your version of the number of updates from?

      ruben543, 16 May 2023basically the improvements are --602 nits to 936 --barome... moreThey already had reverse charging before I think. It's not new.

      Sony phones don't use Face unlocking. They scrapped it off their software in 2019 because they said it's not secure enough and they never reintroduced it after that.

      Sony's night mode isn't meant to compete with the other devices that try to turn nighttime to daytime with theirs. They're just trying to give you better details and dynamic range while keeping nighttime, nighttime. I don't think they ever plan on going down the night-day route. You can achieve those results using manual controls if you're really interested though...

        basically the improvements are
        --602 nits to 936
        --barometer
        --night mode
        --Reverse Charge
        --the hz seem to have a kind of adaptation but it is not clear, far from something adaptive as the competition has

        really the night mode was screaming for the hz to play too but in that strange and unclear way it is not understood how they want to compete
        It is not clear to me if it has facial unlocking, it does not say on any google site if it has or not

            Anonymous, 16 May 20235 V should be cheaper. Though best wait a couple of months ... moreWell nice thing about Xperia phones if you want to buy one, they generally depreciate extremely quickly and if you can wait even just 2 month phone stores start bundling them with a ton of accessories. I bought the Pro-i stupidly on release date.

            2 months later it was €200 less AND came with the Sony stand and the vlog screen which I BOTH bought separately for €400... so I could have saved €600 lmao. In 6 months the Pro-i was €600 cheaper, from €1800 to €1200.

            If I am gonna get this phone, I will for sure at least wait.

              I think japanese people loyality to their products should become more logical all sony's flagships aren't able to compete from more than 6 years with other companies in most aspects I think sony must stop producing smartphones and focus on cameras instead

                        I still love Sony as a phone brand. It saddens me that i will never get to buy another premium Sony phone ever. Prices are beyond my reach and so many other manufacturers like Xiaomi, Huawei and even Samsung offer high-end phones for half the price. But who knows... Maybe one day.

                            I canceled my pre-order on xperia 1 IV last year because of SD 8 Gen 1 (overheating problem)
                            But xperia 1 V looks perfect updated from last year and no overheating this time
                            😀

                                AlexPP, 15 May 2023Totally lied Good for you that your Pro-i is working fine. My one was completely defective.

                                1. Overheating after even 5 minutes in the camera app.
                                2. Camera app crashing for no reason when taking photos or just freezing.
                                3. The screen was completely defective. Blacks were completely crushed and they were not black at all for an OLED screen.
                                4. It took 2 weeks to get the screen fixed and it did come back working fine. They had definitely fixed it, but then they disconnected my ultrawide camera. So I had no ultrawide at all. Just the main camera...
                                5. There was visible all over the phone and under the screen on the sides the glue they had used to reglue the screen back after taking the phone apart and fixing the broken screen.

                                All this hassle, I asked the company what my option was and the guy said they had taken the phone off their catalogue. I just checked now and online that company is still not selling the Pro-i anymore. You can now find the Pro-i here sometimes for only €900 lol... half the price it was at launch.

                                The Pro-i had an amazing camera but the Snap Gen 1 + the super overheating OLED display + super thin phone with bad cooling. It was literally the worst idea Sony ever had.

                                  It's nice to see flagship devices with expandable memory and 3.5mm ports, seems like a no frills upgrade for my Moto Edge + 2020

                                      Reds, 15 May 2023Then i should put you has their head cause you know better.... moreWhat? You say every other phones crops in to zoom unlike sony? I hope you mean the telephoto sensor not the main one. Continuous zoom isn't what's being discussed. The main sensor is being discussed here so you got everything mixed up, thinking main sensor is same as telephoto.

                                      The point is that Samsung only crops for video, but Sony crops for both video and photo. So the latter is worse in this regard.

                                      They wouldn't employ someone who stands for user rights and product improvement, not for making most profit. And honestly, who are you to put someone as their head? Do you work there?
