Anonymous, 21 Jun 2019I agree with you and already I play PUBG with 21:9 Aspect ration on my Xperia 1, Fortinite 21:... moreDon't forget the fact that when you coupled it with a sony headphone with Hi-Res Audio. You get LDAC audio quality. Which means. Everything you hear is like playing games with a 5.1 or 7.1 channel surround sound speakers. And if you're watching movies. And you enabled the dolby atmos. It's like you're in the cinema.

Good thing about watching videos in Xperia 1 21:9 display is most movie trailers and videos fit display or can zoom in within display which fit all corners well with full screen viewing which I enjoys.
anyone compare the xperia 1 photo/video quality on supersaf and flasingdroid youtubers ? In supersaf video, xperia 1 has low dynamic range especially on the sky and cloud on every photos or video, but in flashingdroid he only got a few photos where s10 has better dynamic range.
Color reproduction is better on xperia 1 all the way because s10 color make a green-yellowish leaf becomes whole green and xperia 1 somewhat has more details. On video stability other than 4k the rest s10 has no match.
Now it comes down to why certain ppl is getting bad photo quality on xperia 1 but some always get good quality. Probably takes some skills to operate the phone properly
Anonymous, 17 Jun 20191. No one watch movie on tiny phone. Most people only watch some youtube videos which are 16:9... moreRecently bought an Xperia 10 Plus. It has the same aspect ratio and screen size, so I can explain who can buy this phone. Will take myself as an example.
1) While I frequently watch Youtube, there is quite a lot of content optimized for 21:9 ratio. More so I'm watching movies on the way in the trip or vacation quite often.
2-3) Indeed the screen is a little bit narrow, but it didn't cause any problems for me while typing. It's even easy to do with one hand actually. And multitasking with such screen is convenient.
4) Famous games like Asphalt 9 supports 21:9. Others will do in time, I think.
5) Come on, it is only 1 cm longer than S10+ and P30 pro...

3. You can still type on the screen even if the display is narrower.
4. Of course there's almost no support game for 21:9 ratio resolution because it's still new. Give it a few more months. And there will be games available for 21:9 ratio display.
5. You say that a 21:9 on a 6.5 inch display can't be placed on a pocket? Tell that to the asians.
Yyyy, 30 May 2019Literally all phones with a jack sound average? What about the LG G and V lines? Almost every ... moreRegular Bluetooth (4.2) and it's marginally improvement such as aptx is almost 20 year technology, the reason it's sounds compressed is that it's low bitrate at 320kbps, like watching DVDs, but Bluetooth 5 (released in 2018), aptx hd ( released in 2016) is at 600kbps, but ldac (released late 2015) is at 990kbps, actually very high quality and close to original especially when listening to flac files, not lossy format such as MP3

Almost every ... moreLet's compare Audio quality on phones to high resolution Dedicated audio player, like phone camera quality to aps-c camera, even the best phone (apart from onkyo dp-cmx1) including lg will be like those inexpensive compact camera with 1/1.7 small sensors, on the other hand, onkyo dp-cmx1 is like mirrorless aps-c camera, then you have high resolution Audio player such as Sony nw-zx100 or astell and Kern kann which are like mirrorless full frame cameras.
I gather you never heard a phone or even better high resolution Audio player playing music via ldac on Sony 1000xm2 or aptx hd with astell and Kern xb10, it would be like 1 inch sensor camera like Sony rx100, which still significantly better than built-in 3.5 mm phones, however, add Cyrus sound key or audio quest dragon fly DAC to a phone, you can actually make sound rather decent.

Anonymous, 17 Jun 20191. No one watch movie on tiny phone. Most people only watch some youtube videos which are 16:9... moreYes, whatching movie on the phone is not good idea, first it will get interupted with calls and notifs. Interupted by people if we are in public space.
Watching short youtube videos is great, but for a lenghly movies, its better on big screen when we have spare time..
The trolls still thinking the mainstream camera quality is better, but they all lost more detail actually, they have too much noise remove processing to lost detail texture color and gradient. Unlike Raw noise reduction, it retain details and very less noise.
Anonymous, 17 Jun 20191. No one watch movie on tiny phone. Most people only watch some youtube videos which are 16:9... more21:9 display is great for movie because it totally fit at the screen without notch or ugly protrude front camera to block the view, when display 16:9 can also stretch the ratio to fit the screen, but I think I prefer don't stretch up the ratio I prefer a "bezel" to enhance holding experience.
For split screen, it is ease to do 2 thing on one gorgeous screen. The smarter way is the adjustable layout can fit 16:9 on one side and another column with 9:16 when vertical, it is flexible to use, personally I don't use split on 16:9 ratio on my XA Ultra because it has shorter space but 21:9 have more space than 16:9 or 18:9, so 21:9 definitely has it merit.
More typing space is even better. Sony know a smartphone not only for multi-media but also for social media, the taller screen has more space to show sort of contain it also reduce swipe up or down rapidly. The more typing space the better way to do word editing for vertical. And yes rotate to landscape for multimedia immersion.
For gaming, wider view is better. If the screen is narrower it is better? The on screen gaming's buttons is there, so think it yourself.... I don't argue with you. Remember it has lighter weight and slimmer thickness.
21:9 is pocketable like the Gsmarena's reviewer saying. If slightly different is a problem to you than get a small phone, then you won't complain anymore.
Anonymous, 14 Jun 2019Why watch movies on a tiny subpar screen? Get a TV, dude!Who's watching 16:9 YT videos on a tiny subpar screen? Who's playing games on a tiny subpar screen? Who's watching photos on a tiny subpar screen? I do not, but why mention just 21:9 movies? Because it's a Sony?
Yup, just what i thought. The 21:9 screen quality is excellent (other than mixed-bag Sony's implementation, should have use full screen gesture instead of the pill gesture, fingers will be more stretchable), and i believe this trend will be followed by others next year.
Anddd just what i thought as well, the camera is a bit of letdown in terms of photography, still not the top, will wait for more reviews definitely.
Anonymous, 17 Jun 20191. No one watch movie on tiny phone. Most people only watch some youtube videos which are 16:9... moreWell, that's what people also used to think about 18:9 ratio. Yet, people already got accustomed to the screen ratio. It all comes down to personal preference and familiarization, not so much about "fanboying."
