" I got an 18W charger with my Xperia 1 review unit. It needs almost 2 hours to charge the phone completely, but this could be because Sony prioritizes battery health over charging speeds, and slower charging prolongs the cell's lifespan"
Xperia 1 will still have more than 3000mAh after two years. Other with 4000 mAh and much faster charger will be below 3300 in less than 15 months.
Love both phones, so both got my votes in my Top 5. Tho, I prefer the classic-squarish OmniBalance of Xperia Z design of Xperia 1.
Moj, 18 Jun 2019you meant software right?(cause hardware wise sammy only gets more storage and ram which wasn'... moreNo, still hardware. The battery advantage and some of the camera advantages are hardware based with software augmentation I noticed.
definitely sony's software is the best android. unfortunately, sony screws up the nice flat oled with ridiculous 21:9 aspect ratio.
best screen design is simply flat 16:9 with no stupid notch/hole . no need additional space for navigation bar with android pie
This is NOT a comparison between the S10+ versus the Xperia 1.
It's a comparison between Sony fanboys and Samsung fanboys.
Both camps grasping at straws, and few here actually pointing out proper differences that have an effect to the practicality and real-world use.
Anonymous, 18 Jun 2019You guys still believe that snapdragon 855 better than Exyonse 9820!. I used both and there’s ... moreEven sd845 beats exynos 9820. And exynos is the one that have overheating issues

Anonymous, 18 Jun 2019It looks like a soap, even worse. Samsung will use 21:9 for s11 and you all goint to love. Why did you mention Samsung? Not Huawei or Xiaomi or the many other brands. Another Sony fan obsessed with Samsung.
Hexa cam Xperia
20 MP f2.4
ToF 0.5 MP
Selfie = 10MP + 0.3MP ToF
1) I think the 48MP is the imx666 (total of 66.6MP but 48MP usable, it was removed from wikipedia exmor page before MWC)
2) the 12MP must be monochrome , because of the same dual aperture like main cam
3) I suspect the 20MP is UWA and 16MP is 2x zoom
4) the 8MP I suspect that is a periscope ....
CptPower, 18 Jun 2019Wireless charging doesnt cost 600 bucks as well as water resistance.
And i dont think its es... moreAll components of Redmi are cheaper.
Xiaomi makes them in India, cheaper than other countries in Asia.
Xiaomi does not need to keep operations nor costumer service in many countries like other.
MiUI has adds to bring money.
Xiaomi phones are cheaper because they are much cheaper to be made. Not because they just want to sell this price. Always copying other brands to save R&D (Mi Mix was copy of Sharp phone) ...
Instead of making low ends with SD8xx like Pocophone and K20 Pro , they should spend this money with tests to reduce SAR. Many of their phones have high values.
By the way, there are places where mi9 costs more than $1000.
Anonymous, 18 Jun 2019Better than remote control design lol.It looks like a soap, even worse.
Samsung will use 21:9 for s11 and you all goint to love.
Anonymous, 18 Jun 2019Screen hole is ridiculous. Added to the useless dual edge you lose 5cm2. Better than remote control design lol.
123, 18 Jun 2019and the winner is ! Huawei p30proNo use it’s dead phone.
There is no way S10+ takes better videos but OK. Video is not about still camera recording moving objects nor is it about specs such as 60fps in 4K that drops frames if you shoot for longer periods of times (in minutes actually).
Xperia 1 has two ways to shoot video and both come with different result in color, detail, stabilization and mood in general. Such a shame Cinema Pro wasn't considered here. Cinema Pro offers better stabilization in 4K compared to Default Camera but Default Camera absolutely kills with hybrid EIS+OIS in 1080p footage especially in low light. Nothing comes close.
It's also a shame burst was never considered in still photography especially with moving subject where Xperia 1/XZ3/XZ2 series absolutely kills competition when it comes to focus of the subject. Something competition truly struggles with but Samsung is the only one that can compete so it's a shame we didn't see that test either.
Overall I agree with 75% of the test, it's fair and accurate most of the time. Besides video camera where I don't agree is built quality, Xperia 1 has a bit more Gorilla Glass layering compared to S10+, it's evident in hand but unlike Samsung's galvanized frame Xperia 1 frame is painted and it will chip a lot easier. If you take Gray version then you will get galvanized frame as well but overall Xperia tends to use softer aluminum frame.
Anonymous, 17 Jun 2019where is my wireless charging coil thoughWireless charging doesnt cost 600 bucks as well as water resistance.
And i dont think its essntial and must have in any cell phone.
If we make a phone with all possible add ons.
Take the very best from every phone brand and make a single phone it will cost way over 2000 bucks but whp will buy that kind of phone?
Only few people which can afford it.
Inm other words Imagine a phone with SD855, a pure android cyanogen which is best among all android devices, 12GB ram, 1TB disk space SD card support dual sim not hybrid one. Triluminious display from Sony. 64 Mpix image sensor from Samsung with 2 front and 6 cameras at back with NOkia 9 Pureview carl zeis optic with their image proccesing SW specialy made for Nokia 9, IP69 with MIL-STD 810G, 18K mAh battery from Energizer device 5 inch compact one handed design, LG best audio which they are famous for, 65W charging from Huawei, Gorrila Glass 6 on a Shapphire screen unscratchable at 8 or less mohs scale. Nokia 8 sirroco steel alloys for a maximum possible durrability a wireless charging the best possible, 3,5 jack, some kind of supercooling made for Nubia red magic 3 with fan inside,
And many many else.
So if wwe take all the best from all phone brands and make just special phone it will cost maybe 2000 maybe 3000 but who would buy phone like this???
Almost noone. So its a complete waste thus i said K20 pro is a winner because for much less money they make almost perfect device.
