This new model looks promising though.

Ultra Wide and Tele are 1/3.4" ... Sony does not make sensor of this size. Just 1/3" and 1/4".
I think they considered the size more apropriated to make modules equal thickness.
IFA phone wont use Isocell. It is just temporary solution.

It is hard to push brightness at this pixel density.
It probably is around 500-540 nits.
More than that will bring burn in earlier. If you check on internet, burn in happens more on QHD than Full HD or HD.

Other phones that were presented before could not get ufs3.0 in time.

Phones without OIS will use higher ISO to prevent blur.
Not software issues.
In scenes that phones from other brands end up using ISO above 600, photos come out very bad too. Especially Samsung.
You cannot compared ISO 200/ shutter 1/2s against ISO 800/ shutter 1/32s.

I needed good low light shots for my work and it failed terribly here. Also, the terrible battery life and sometimes ran so hot that I couldn't even hold it.
AlexP, 03 Jun 2019What? OnePlus7 pro uses usf 3OnePlus has ufs3.0 because it was announced much latter, just in May.
Phones from february/march could not have it.
Samsung was still making the chips.
Not even s10 series has it.

Got the phone for testing today and was VERY positively surprised: The OLED screen is the best screen I ever had, lacking only in terms of max brightness in daylight. It's beautiful. The cameras are color accurate and VERY good, this time even the software works out nicely. Ultrawide shots get automatically perfectly angle corrected, this is awesome. Less awesome: No 21:9 photos possible, despite the phone being in that format. And the lesser Xperia 10 supposedly can do that, it boggles the mind. The size is exactly the same wideness (7,2cm) as my Xperia XZ had, it just got lengthened. The fingerprint sensor is now dead center, and as it is is not so wide you can one-hand use it, you just have to shift your hand up and down a little. The size or rather length is a problem though, it might not fit in any pocket without problems anymore, at least not without sticking out more. Battery life seems superb, but have it only for a day yet. Screen should be brighter in daylight, but it isn't, same as my XZ. All in all a very sound phone, the camera is IMO better than that of a S10, but not quite Huawei P30 Pro. Doesn't overdo software color correction and all that. It has no notch, if you want a phone without notch this one might be your best option.
Previous Xperia Z5P owner, Sony camera bad in low light, 4k screen just waste of battery prepare to charge your phone like mad, 3330 mAh battery with 4k screen? is that a joke? UI .... Leave a lot to be desired.
the only plus is it produce very good music with their ClearAudio+ & DSEE HX I yet to find any phone able to achieve that.

Ali Bashir, 01 Jun 2019Nice review, wait what, p30 still the king? Have you read carefully the article, it says altho... moreYes, both P30 Pro & Mate 20 Pro is still the low light kings in terms of photography for me. If the reviewer describe Xperia 1 low lights is 'what our eyes see', than thats it, its limited. Both P30 & Mate 20 can easily get the 'what our eyes see' as well by using Pro mode. But Xperia 1 cant achieve what P30 Pro capabilities did (excellent dynamic range, highlights preservation, great contrast & minimal color degradation). U cant just fight the hardware goodies on Huawei.
Now i dont know how HDR mode on Xperia 1 results, but previous Xperia eventhough with HDR turned on in low lights, still cant catch up with the competition. I prefer the 'dramatic' & 'street style' low light photography than the 'natural' Xperia 1 provided.
The way photographers winning an award, making ads, put photos on magazine using DSLR regarding low light pics are rarely just by using 'natural' images. Its been always edited to make it looks 'dramatic', 'brighten up' (without sacrificing quality), 'stylized' to become more appealing & 'tells a story'. Thats what Huawei's Leica camera intended at the first place.
To each his own. I prefer low lights on Huawei phone & as of now no other brands made me interested.

Xperia 1 uses UFS, whick means it was made by Samsung. Sa... moreCorrect. The Oled screen is from Samsung.
Although, I thought only the 48mp camera was a Samsung Isocell.
Do you have a link for the 3 Samsung Isocell cameras used in Xperia1 ?
Anonymous, 02 Jun 2019I assume that it has UFS... right..?Sony uses UFS since XZ Premium. For flagships, of course.
Probably 2.1, since there were units at MWC and ufs 3.0 was not available yet.
