Just bought Xperia 1 last week outright. Brand new, £420. Bargain. Loads of people have problems with the finger print scanner. I sussed out that if you press the "on" button briefly first, it sorts the problem out. It's a really good phone. Good battery, camera, screen, all that stuff. I've had Sony's for years now because they are generally reliable and very strong (relatively!). I'm a structural carpenter so my handsets take a lot of abuse. I'm not denying that other phones like Samsung and Apple are good but all the ones I've seen on site have broken screens. Even brand new ones.
The cameras on Sony phones always get slated too which is a little unfair. They have manual set up modes and once you get used to using these settings, they're unbelievably good. Most reviewers only test them on auto setting so they appear average at best. Anyway, I would recommend this handset to anyone. It's as good as anything on the market now. 5G? Don't care much about that. Capable of downloading over a gig a second, it's fast enough for anyone. I see reviews where it might open up applications a tenth of a second slower than some other devices but it doesn't bother me. I'm much less likely to have a broken screen and a phone that works. Cheers. Hope this helps
Recommended! I bought Xperia 1 here in japan softbank model brand new in cheap price and I like that color my favorite purple.. Im pretty satisfied for this Xperia come back. excellent in camera videos sounds watching movies and also for gaming because of long life battery high endurance and ultra Graphics.Good size and weights very high speed of ram 6gb is enough as of now. Xperia is xperia Unique.period :)
- Camera is VERY slow. After taking a picture, you have to hold the phone still for 2 seconds while it computes what I consider an inferior image by todays standards.
- Fingerprint reader is glitchy at best. I unlock my phone more using my pin than the fingerprint reader - it simply won't work.
- Touchscreen input locks up regularly, so whatever letter I type ends up being some58n& 3lse. Or why not try enjoying a game where you walk or a cliff because the input locks up?
- Gets very very warm during gaming, to the point where it shuts down.
- Decent screen
- Little bloatware
- Fast, when it's not locking up or overheating.
Benny1, 24 May 2020Go for the cheap one that will give you all you want and live our sony alone 'Our Sony' like is that your property xaxaxa. Relax i just say my opinion dont get personally 'sony boy'
This phone cost 9000kr in Sweden right now, that is around 800e, for that money u have...
Awarage camera, if u compare with Xiaomi Mi Note 10 this camera is for one class under and Xiaomi is half off price Sony.
No wireless charging
In 2020 no face unlock, phone from price tag 300e have that
No night mode, u can get ok pic just if u take pic in perfect condition, if u try on low light is crap.
Front camera 8mp 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯 but i not look just numbers, this camera is bad.
Display on paper 4k Oled Hdr wow, on real if u watching 4k video on YouTube or 4k Movie is very good but when u use phone that is not same display, is not bright and color is wash out. I not hate Sony i use Sony long time and almost every model but i use another to and for this price Sony give u just good device on paper.
Guys, how about battery life after the latest updates? Any improvements? Hope to share your experience without biased opinion about a brand....
Ellio74, 13 Apr 2020If you can go to the camera tool comparison of the site, you'll see that the 1 is easily the w... moreBetter than Scrap ultra at 12 mp. Much more natural colors and textures. Top device still!
Really in love with this phone save 1 thing
So i've been a sony fanbasemember when it comes to phones:
Xperia XZ Premium
Also have my parents and my wife hooked (both parents XZ Premium already using it for 3 years +!) and my wife uses a XZs.
Even though I love the speed of the phone, I am not sure about the 21:9 ratio on the screen. I use my phone for mobile games a lot and it seriously feels as if the height's not big enough for its width. It's a very fast phone but it has issues processing pictures often freezing and leaving a greenscreen pictures of a, now, missed moment.
I'm afraid to say that the previous phones i've owned were a lot more to my liking.
Don't get me wrong, it's a good phone, and very fast, but if Sony keeps on making 21:9 ratio phones then I'm afraid it's time for another brand after a solid 8 years of sony phones
Is this a good phone? I think the screen size would really suit me, since I mostly just browse and message. I know camera isn't the best but I rarely take photos.
Anonymous, 01 May 2020Why so thin? With 6.5inch height and only 72mm width?. I dont like it. Xperia 1 is badXperia 1 is good, use it before leaving bad post

Gino76ph, 09 Feb 2020Would you choose the Xperia 1 cameras than a OnePlus 7? And why?If you can go to the camera tool comparison of the site, you'll see that the 1 is easily the winner in low light scenarios, resolving way more details.
In daylight, both are good, that's a matter of preferences in this case.
Gino76ph, 09 Feb 2020Would you choose the Xperia 1 cameras than a OnePlus 7? And why?If u are confused between Sony and OneOlus u should- at least consider Oneaolus 7T( not- 7 because 7 is weakest in 7 line) or it would be much better if u can afford 7Pro or 7T pro.If u can aford any of these 3 OP's model( except 7) any of them will be on pair with cameras with Sony Xperia 1- except OnePlus has a liitle bit better performance- but thats just because this Sony doesnt have 90 khz refreshment rate like Op( but still,Sony also has supreme performance in really long trms of usage just like OP)
is this phone is 4k hdr oled 21:9 ratio cuz everyone telling it its not 4k hdr resolution and this phone has same resolution like xperia 1
