Reviews for the Sony Xperia Pro

Sony Xperia Pro review: A versatile 5G phone that's not for you
Source: CNet English
At $2,500, the new phone finally gives us a real reason to use 5G. The Xperia Pro is aimed at photographers and videographers looking for a multifaceted tool to streamline their creative workflows.

Sony Xperia Pro: The Real Pro or Just a Clause?
Source: PC Quest English
Most of Sony’s cameras like the FX 9 or a7S3 allow for native streaming meaning that you can actually use a regular old Xiaomi phone as a viewfinder. Granted that it is not going to be 4K, the screen will only be HD or an FHD panel, but you can still monitor media if that is what you aim at doing. So the real question is, Is this a new and improved addition to the Sony smartphone line-up to just a rebranding with a clause?

Sony Xperia Pro Review: Built For The Crew, Priced For The Stars
Source: MrMobile English
Cameras. I use them every day; I rely on them; I even like a few. But there’s a reason I shoot so many photos and videos on phones instead of proper glass: simplicity. To me, the landscape of camera gear is a vast netherworld of overpriced and under-performing products – most notorious among them, external monitors. “Why,” I’ve thought on countless trips to B&H, “can’t I just hook my phone up to my camera, instead of dropping $500 on a thicker, heavier monitor that doesn’t last as long and needs its own set of batteries?”

Qualcomm Adreno 650: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 25% faster than the Adreno 640 in the Snapdragon 855 SoC and offers 50% more compute units (ALUs). For Android it should be one of the fastest graphics cards in 2020.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

SD 865: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in late 2019 and manufactured in 7 nm at TSMC (improved N7P). Integrates one “Prime Core” based on a ARM Cortex-A77 architecture clocked at up to 2.84 GHz. Three more performance cores are also based on the A77 but clock up to 2.42 GHz. Furthermore, four energy saving cores are integrated that are based on the ARM Cortex-A55 architecture and clock at up to 1.8 GHz. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a WiFi 6 modem (including 60 GHz mmWave support), a Hexagon 698 DSP (up to 15 TOPS) and a Spectra 480 ISP. The integrated memory controller now supports faster LPDDR5 memory with up to 2,750 MHz. LTE is not included anymore in the SoC, but the external Snapdragon X55 5G modem has to be used.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.
