Why my comments are deleted? All I'm doing is asking for a clarification of the "error" made on the review score
Everyone knows Xperia 1 has a professional level camera tech with professional level camera applications... I think the guys in GSMArena are pro's... So, why don't you guys try out the camera in pro mode and give people a comprehensive review... Not just these auto mode snapshots reviews.....
Price is damn high with the issues it comes with like average battery and camera. I expected the best camera experience from Sony this time around but it seems not the case. Chinese OP 7 Pro is a better deal.
op, 13 Jun 2019Pixel Resolution isn't important at normal distance but colour resolution isAnd 326ppi in LCD terms or 490ppi in amoled terms is more than enough resolution.
What a healthy eye sees from normal reading distance 10-12 inches (25-30 cm), and you shouldn't hold your phone closer to your face than that, is 300ppi LCD / 450ppi amoled. If a screen is below those resolutions, it will look pixelated. If it's higher resolution than that, you would not see a difference anyway.
So this phone's 643ppi amoled is equivalent to an insane 429 real ppi (LCD), which you would not see a difference when comparing to a 300ppi LCD screen viewed from 10-12 inches (25-30 cm) away. Only if you get closer than that you will start noticing more details and more sharpness, but that's not how you use a smartphone. And if you do hold it closer to your face than that, you need corrective glasses.

I'm so tired of all the FUD surrounding Sony's 4K phones. For almost 5 years, every single review of the 4K-equipped phones is sure to note that almost no apps support 4K, and that it would somehow magically drain the battery so it's not worth it anyway. This is just nonsense at this point. Android still isn't really designed for 4K, it's true, but with a few trivial hacks that inevitably come out for each Xperia, you can force 4K on your phone. There's so many people saying it's imperceptible or fake in forums that I wound up taking a microscope to more than one of my phones, running single-pixel checkerboard patterns and other tests on them, and verifying that they indeed were running at 4K. And you really can tell. Text is sharper, images have impossible levels of detail, it doesn't take equipment to know when you stumble across an app that takes advantage of whatever the resolution happens to be. Not all apps are hard-coded for a certain maximum, this is another stupid story kids tell each other so they don't feel as bad about not being able to afford another phone, but in fact most apps will happily render at whatever your device is set to. Besides, the Pixel 3 XL runs at 2960x1440 and has appreciable differences that make blocker resolutions look ugly, and it's not constantly draining the battery - in fact it has some of the best battery life around. It's insane that Sony sets the default resolution so low, because at this point their recommended pre-hack resolution is lower than a lot of the competition. A crisp screen is more important than a good camera for me, I have good vision and I like being able to consume more information at farther-out zoom levels. Sony has the best screens around for that purpose, but you have to get past the ignorant reviewers who say the same lies every year, the ignorant fans who say the same lies every year, and Sony's obsession with underpowering Xperias down to resolutions from 2013.

Alex, 11 Jun 2019I've started reading comments, from the newest, and all of them were about the camera. If you ... morefor most people posting opinions a smartphone is kind a social status indicator and allegiance declaration to a preferred manufacturer (when not posting being paid by a specific manufacturer as in "gut the competitor"...:) ), mine is newer, looks better, nicer photos, I get in night time pictures as luminous as in daytime (than, for the god sakes, why take them in night time?), as. 99.(9)% of this guys have no clue how a lens is designed, how the sensors chips are working and that actually it is impossible to have a miniature lens system, as those used in the phones, to get the results they want without heavy data processing. in the end the nice pictures they get from their 'smart" phones are mostly the images the software creates to please their perception. what's funny is that the super images they get out their +1000 phones are posted in severely downgraded versions on instagram or facebook :))) and viewed on not calibrated monitors that do not show the real colors....
by this point of view, if the camera is of main interest, a honest medium price phone like, for example, nokia 9 is better as, while it does not produce very good native jpg's, it offers the possibility for a more than average photo enthusiast to process the images as he / she pleases and getting closer to a pocket size camera replacement with a few regular but not fancy phone device features.
Is it true that xperia 1 gets 120Hz display even in normal situation? I mean like the screen razer phone/ ipad pro 10.5 are having.
If only they stuck a 4,000mAh cell in this baby, it would have class-leading endurance for a flagship. Possibly close to 100 hours. But instead it's just "okay".

I've started reading comments, from the newest, and all of them were about the camera. If you people care so much about camera, noise and dynamic range, why don't you buy a real camera, instead of expecting wonders from a phone? I mean, the cheapest $350 DSLR will outperform, by lightyears, the best $1000 phone. Why so much fuss about a phone which is capable of making photos? If you want usable photos, buy a $250 phone. If you want good photos, buy a cheap APS-C camera. If you want awesome photos, buy a "full-frame" camera. If you have money, buy a $1000 phone plus a medium format camera, and post your photos on a social media, in 2 MP resolution. Your followers will find you very cool.
sohail shafayat, 09 Jun 2019for any ratio, 2160p is for 4K. to be proper 4K on a 21:9 screen, it should be 2160:5040. you ... morepixels et kilo are differents. pixels in length and k in width. not the same ( 4k ultra hd "3840x2160" it's named 4k because this is getting closer to the 4k resolution not because it's 2160p.
it's like storage memory a lot of people are mistaken between kibibytes and kilobytes.
