Am I seeing noises even in the day shots? Look at the model faces. There are noticeable noises dots happening. Yucks. Sorry Sony. Your camera is not to my liking. Still prefer Huawei cameras.

Anonymous, 09 Jun 20193 to 6 month from now and price will drop to $600 lol.Xperia XZ3 released September 2018 at $799, 8 months later it's $599.
So the Xperia 1 dropping $350 in 6 months is unlikely.

Price is cheaper than I thought, screen is the best in the market for sure, audio seems not bad either. As design back of the phone is so ugly but can be fixed with a Dbrand like sticker easily. Better choice than P30 Pro about same price, my thoughts. Well done :)

Got it on contract so it's about the same as the monthly cost of my last phone. Overall it's £830 ish.
But GSMA have this one right: this phone is worth every penny. The camera is seriously good: less noisy than a Pixel with around the same resolved detail - noisier than an S10 but with far more resolved detail (The S10's algorythm just flattens all of the detail. I've never rated the camera's on Sammys for this reason - plastic and fake. And the colours are always way over the top). P30 Pro? Probably still the better camera if you can sacrifice 2mp of detail but the X1 is, to my eyes, top two. Any arguements I'll point straight at my flickr feed below - it's a brilliant camera: well coloured, plenty detailed, well exposed and very versatile. And 1080p video stabilisation is absolutely class leading.
As for the rest: nothing touches that screen for watching movies. Throw on a 4K HDR nature video from YouTube, pop it into Creator Mode and just bathe your eyes. It's insane how lovely that panel is - even with the slight colour shift at angles.
I can't go back to 16:9 aspect ratios now, either. This is a tremendous aspect ratio. I thought I'd struggle to get used to it but now I can't imaging living without it.
Cinema Pro is veeeeery interesting. I'm only tinkering but you can deliver some amazing footage. It's missing stabilisation, sadly, so you're reduced to using a tripod. But you'd absolutely be able to record a quality short film on the thing, with a seperate editing app.
Audio? It sounds very nice - though I get where GSMA are coming from with the technicalities. I'm fully expecting that the wireless headphones I'm getting (pre-ordered) will sort the slight issues out, as they'll be independently amped.
But it's easily a top teir phone. Perhaps the second best smartphone camera on the market, easily the most immersive screen, great stock-like software and it feels,... different. Like Sony have gone "You know what, they're all doing that: lets do what we do best: media".
Thoroughly recommend it.

Gaming performance, battery life and heat test, so far 8 hours of high graphics gaming, now keep arguing experts.
Lots of none sense comments comming from people who don't even have this phone...
I have upgraded my s10+ to Xperia 1 and gets about 1 hour even more SoT ...
Why you making comments when you don't have experience with the device.. i am absolutely ore than haply with the battery performance...
Of course if it was like 4000mah it would be even better , but optimization is spot on and have no complaints .. specially compare to s10+ Exinose ...
Also very happy with the camera .. but there are some glitch here and the in the software which i am hoping to be sorted through next software update ...
AnonD-82756, 09 Jun 2019Yeah do you think its worth itIf you have enough money than yes
Andy93, 09 Jun 2019You're going to go from a 200 Euro phone to a 950 Euro phone? That's quite the jumpYeah do you think its worth it

This is lithium battery. Degradation happens.
Sony batteries will be damaged slower than other phones.
