Planning to buy latest generation of this headphones. Hope it will sound great. Afraid of faulty ones. Any suggestions please.
It's a good deal. I've had Xperia 1 for 1½ year now. Overall it's a great phone. The 21:9 4 OLED screen is amazing and no scratches even without a screen protector. Main camera is fast and takes great photos using Sony color science (i.e. neutral - not over saturated and high contrast). Battery is good - typically has 30-40% left after a normal day. The phone will be updated to Android 11 in March 2021, but overall the software is solid. I miss a 3½mm jack and the FPS could be better. Will probably upgrade to Xperia 1 III
Anonymous, 13 Jan 2021I got it, and threw it away because it looks so ugly and terrible.
Omg.. it's sooo uuuglyAnd you did not know the design vefore buying the phone.
Yeah, let'a all pretend you have ever had the device.
Had it for few month and sold. The reason was - too damn many bad outcome from main camera. Camera experience was hit or miss all the time. Couldn't stand it for that reason so came back to old, dirt cheap by now Pixel 4. Very happy with it.
nice headphones. still they will have to get with it the Horrible smartphone that comes with it, and the Horrible sony costumer service that follow.

vrvly, 13 Jan 2021Funny info, you can get about the same performance with LG V50, but that one got a Jack and ca... moreLG smartphones definitely bring a good value proposition, they are solid products. I like the direction LG is going in with products such as the wing and rollable/ foldable models in the works, being innovative- unlike some companies that just sell the same thing again and people buy it for a higher price. However they are overlooked, just like Sony, Asus, Vivo etc. My favourite company used to be pantech, my dream phone the vega iron 2 in red, but they didn't make it despite solid products. It's a harsh world, marketing is the new ball game, you fool people into buying an inferior product and make a lot of money out of it. Can you believe the iPhone was said to be the gold standard of video-making when they offered consumers 4K without HDR in phones like iPhone 11 Pro Max.
One tip is to avoid mainstream reviewers who are usually sponsored- some by Apple, others by Samsung and a few by Pixel. When a youtuber straight up tells people that the pixel 5 with a ye old camera sensor is said to have amazing photography it makes me cringe. Why? Because I'm one of the people that went off that device and got my parents one of those. Now they aren't average consumers, they want something easy to work with and share with relatives. Here comes along someone's birthday, the photographs tried to look detailed but people at that age like to zoom in and spot other people. That is when things fall apart. The worst part was that halfway through it could not take any more photographs, possibly trying to render all the previous ones. This is a product some of the most iconic youtubers praised and yet it failed it's purpose. I'm guessing it might just be an asian thing, but everyone gives a bit of cake to the person whose birthday it is and normally a picture is taken for every different person as you would assume, yet this missed half the people because the phone stopped taking pictures.
Going back to the point, do your own research. Look into what companies like LG, Sony, Asus etc are offering. Like a headphone jack with 32-bit Dac, 4K screen, 8K camera etc. Stop buying products from Samsung, Apple, Google for a while until they start innovating again and stop trying to figure out ways to screw more money out of the consumer by removing headphone jack, removing charging brick, removing earphones, charging higher prices etc.
i almost got this last year, january 2020...
been holding on to z5 premium, xz premium is just too early (despite the x series butting in between z and xz series)...
xz2 premium seems convincing with its dual camera setup... just didnt like the design, back curve and not so hand friendly with its width...
what kept me holding back was the lack of audio jack...
until i can no longer buy it, then came 1 ii...
though this one is a good deal even on its own, price cut is good enough as it is more than a year since it was release, and with xm3, wow... imo, it is better than xm4...
Anonymous, 13 Jan 2021I hope V70 is a complete phone, no cuts like V60 had to keep price under $800. V line was dual screen, feels like Rollable is new V70, maybe not, but it feels like evolution for lg.
FarFan, 13 Jan 2021Did this phone already lost it's support and upgrade to android 11?Android 11 in march.
1ii already has 11.
5ii in january.
10ii in february.
1 and 5 in march.
kek, 13 Jan 2021Yeah, but with LG, forget about any proper software support. Sony is not better, but at least ... moreExcept this year, between 2016-19 sony had at least 5 devices with new android before Xmas. Many of previous phones got new android by mid november.
Flagships get 30 months of security patches.
vrvly, 13 Jan 2021Funny info, you can get about the same performance with LG V50, but that one got a Jack and ca... moreYeah, but with LG, forget about any proper software support. Sony is not better, but at least you know what you are getting in terms of updates. LG is still hit or miss.
B52, 13 Jan 2021It is sad that there are no such discounts or budles in the Balkans. Never...
The phone itsel... moreIf you buy on ebay and pay import taxes, you still pay less than buying in your location.
Few months ago, Clove UK sold 1 and 5 for less than £500?
