Reviews for the Sony Xperia 1

Sony Xperia 1 initial review: Standing tall
Source: Pocket Lint English
Overall though, the Xperia 1 has some very promising features that we can't wait to test out properly. At £849, it undercuts many of the latest top-end flagships so if its performance is right, the Xperia 1 has the potential to be one of the best smartphone buys of 2019.

Hands on: Sony Xperia 1 Review

The Xperia 1 looks to have some of the most impressive display and imaging technologies in any smartphone but without testing them, it's tough to gauge whether their real-world prowess will live up to the hype. Stay tuned...

The Sony Xperia 1 is a little different and we love that about it. In a market where many flagship smartphones take on similar forms, it's good to see some variation. That 21:9 aspect ratio has some serious potential for those that love to watch films on their devices, as does that 4K HDR OLED display.

Sony Xperia 1 and Xperia 10 series first impressions and hands-on experience
Source: Tech Nave English
At this point of concluding the first impression and hands-on experience, our boy, Jim ended this note with a heavy heart because he's a Sony fanboy (lol). But I digress, Sony smartphones have been a huge part of Malaysia, most of us grew up using at least one of Sony's mobile phones (mine was one the Cybershot series, loved it). Starting from this year onwards, we may no longer see any future Sony phone launches in Malaysia but there are still some stocks left according to their website.

There's no word yet on whether the Xperia 1 will launch in Australia (the 2018 Xperia XZ3 did not), and no pricing has been announced thus far.

Sony Xperia 1 review: Hands-on
Source: PC Advisor English
This could – as we always seem to write – be Sony’s best phone yet. It most likely is. But we are still curious as to who this phone will appeal to.

Sony Xperia 1, 10 Plus, 10, L3 hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
On one hand, it's kind of hard to be too surprised about Sony's new device announcements, purely on the grounds of the avalanche of leaks that preceded the MWC keynote. Then again, many of said rumors turned out to be nothing more than smoke and mirrors. Whether intentional or not on Sony's part, all that matters is that the devices the Japanese giant did unveil at the Barcelona event still managed to turn quite a few heads.

Sony Xperia 1 hands-on review
Source: Stuff TV English
There’s a lot to like about the Xperia 1 and not just the name. Aesthically it’s clean, simple and means business, plus slap old Crouchie out on the pub table and its dimensions set it apart from the crowd.

Sony Xperia 1 Hands-on, Quick Review: Make Xperia Great Again
Source: Unbox English
Sony’s Xperia 1 definitely feels like a beastly phone for people who like watching and making movies, though it’s still unclear if Sony’s top-tier model will re-ignite interest for the Xperia line. The Xperia 1 is priced at 849 British pounds, which comes around to 57.6K Php in our currency. It’s not clear if the Xperia 1 will officially arrive in our stores.

Sony Xperia 1, 10, and 10 Plus hands-on: embracing the super tall display
Source: Android Authority English
Sony’s Xperia phones for 2019 take a bold approach with new screen shapes that dramatically change the appearance and personality of Sony’s lineup. The Sony Xperia 1 flagship is joined by the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus mid-range handsets. All three were developed with the same cinematic vision in mind.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
