Sony Ericsson SO902iwp
there was one before
This days everyone that has a phone for 5min thinks he/she is an expert to make a review
i admit having blasted sony here for the 21:9 aspect ratio, but after watching this video i went to see an actual xperia 1 at a local retailer here in the philippines (they have pulled out here so no sony mobile stores anymore), and i think i'll get the hang of it. i have tested viewing news websites (because that's what i usually use my phones with) and it is quite enjoyable with the length of the content it can display. i am still reserving my thoughts though, as really natural vision is closer to 4:3 than the wide aspect ratios. i have decided though to order one in the next few days to give it a spin. will write my own thoughts about the phone when i have it.
Berserker, 15 Jun 2019It is a security feature. And how often are you swapping sd cards. I don't think is that much ... moreI regularly take out SD card to copy things onto phone because MTP is garbage. Besides my Mi A1 will automatically lock the phone when the sim is pulled out, I think that's enough.
I'm watching Angie's review for the Pixel 3 and she's still wearing the same hat.
She's a pretty girl though. I wish the Xperia 1 was smaller.
NeverSm1le, 14 Jun 2019The thing bother me the most is the phone automatically reboot if it cannot detect sims. Why? ... moreIt is a security feature. And how often are you swapping sd cards. I don't think is that much frustrating :)

Oh, France is in Europe? Thanks Captain Obvious.
What I'm saying is people barely buy Sony phones in France and the global market share already prove that.
I never said I'm all mighty, IDK why I give you that feeling.
Low light photo taken with Xperia 1 is super clean with out losing quality...2x better than Google Pixel 3 noisy/grainy Lowlight photo

And besides, if you really want to go that far, Japan's phone... moreThere was no IP68 ratings back then in Moto Defy days, but the resistance was similar. Casio/ LG was first waterproof phone in 2004. This is a topic discussed here a hundred times already.

Many other brands did this before Sony. Motorola Defy was first Android phone with water/dust resistance. Dunno why Sony fanboys keep claiming this.
[deleted post]Who said France was under developed? If I recall correctly, one of Sony Mobile's key markets was EUROPE, aka the continent of which FRANCE is IN.
Get your facts straight before you try and act all mighty.

As a matter of fact I think it has the best 4K video right now with awesome bitrate and it gives you two ways to film it with either Camera app or Cinema Pro and both work so different.
Take a look at the comparison between the two
XZ2 owner, 14 Jun 2019I see nothing in these photo samples that makes me want to ditch my XZ2. same amount of noise,... moreStabilization works quite different in default camera app and Cinema Pro. Cinema Pro has much better stabilized 4K video while default app has all the goodies in 1080p. To me it seems like they want you to film in 4K using CP and doing all other video things in Camera.
Slow motion works exactly like on XZ2 no improvements to DRAM for extended periods and you still need lots of light to avoid flicker and noise.
Love the Community, 14 Jun 2019And the Extremists here are probably like less than 100 in GSMArena, Shanti included. So 100 x... moreDoes it matter how much they are going to sell these units?
That's like saying that the iPhone 6 is better than the iPhone XS because it sold more units.
Meanwhile, I'd love to enjoy being one in that '100' to own the best multimedia experience on a smartphone today.
Netflix movies are finally going to be experienced in their native aspect ratio, also at the highest possible resolution and best color reproduction. Major YUCK for that pinhole or notch display of you 100+M people.... Eww!
