If I knew about this phone, I would have gotten this one.
You actually get more if you play less nowadays. Shitty trends where I actually cannot throw money at them because companies be like " Yo Dawg, you want no SD slot? Gonna cost you. No head phone jack? Damn..that be costing you premium."
Sony for sure makes flagship phones the way they should be made
a sd card slot and bezels are always best deal speakers too
i think the 4k Oled screen is best screen for any smartphone out there to date for picture quality + 120hz is good but not king
looks like a really good smartphone
overall best flagship phone of 2021 only phones better then it are gaming phones but only just only because
i find out the things that age the worsted is always the performance & software
most of the apps on the app store are games and the main things games need is good specs [still really good specs Sony Xperia 1 III has)
hints add better cooling system more ram storage
i hope the sony phones get better at gaming
W, 01 Dec 2021Build quality OK?I believe it's pretty solid. IP65 and IP68 certifications for water resistance which are better than most phones out there. This along with SD card is pretty impressive. The phone feels premium and well-put together without being bulky or too heavy. It does have a reasonable amount of weight and the metal and glass sandwich is a known commodity. The phone shutter button has an excellent feel to it, and taking pictures with it is a welcome throwback and premium experience.
Sony please!!! New SD SoCs are just announced & around the corner!, don't wait months months months months later to release your new set of phones for those who plant on upgrading next year since you are the last Manufacturers who keeps all features intact, eg. 3.5mm jack & expandable storage while others are killing them.
I'm sad to say I went with Oneplus 9 this year, after a life time of Sony exclusivity and a Samsung TV replacing my never ending Sony TV sets. It's all in the balance between price and quality and Sony is losing at this chapter. Great quality products?...yeah but quite a lot overpriced (like Apple in my opinion). In fact, by the time I write this, the new Oneplus 9 it was donated to my wife and the XZ 2 is reactivated. I'll keep my hopes high for next year because for this price we have the right to demand better and what's more frustrating is that it can be better but looks like it is no will.
Been using for about 3 months, overall better than what I expected. Camera is great, battery is good and screen is the best thing I've seen on a phone. Software is good too, it's butter smooth but there are some missing features (like NFC toggle) but that can be fixed with Tasker. Speaking of which, you can implement adaptive refresh rate using Tasker as well. Overall well worth the price considering all the free gifts, features and specs you get compared to the competition.

Shape is too tall. Screen is too dim. Camera quality is just average. Ui is too featureless. And price is very xpensive.
Sony = Higher price + lower quality.

I meant to say people don't like the look of Xperia because of how it processes photos. Therefore, the problem is processing. I then suggested 2 phones that process in a more populate way.
It may have seemed like I was having this phone but I actually really enjoy my Xperia 1 II.
On another note, I went to Yodobashi today and took a photo of the Xperia 1 III in its frost green color. I'll post it if anyone wants to see. (The photo was taken with my Xperia 1 II.)

With the 1 III, it tends to take far more neutral images. Most people seem to enjoy the overprocessed look. Such is the idea with "Night Mode" on cameras that basically don't take a picture of the night scene per se, but take a dark scene and make it look bright as day. For example, myself, I prefer to see the contrast and shadows - not being able to see what I can't in general. Gathering a ton of light to artificially light the shadows and can the contrast is not my preference. And I would wager that most people who have and enjoy the camera experience on the Xperia are using the oddly named "auto" mode, which enable far more manual control. Even the full auto mode IMO takes far superior pictures to the "basic" mode.
But yes, phone cameras are NOT great cameras, at least not compared to many dedicated cameras of various styles, the discussion of which I believe is beyond the scope of this thread. That said, they are remarkably amazing cameras that fit in your pocket AND can do so much more.
hr, 18 Nov 2021You have to execute yourself my friend, this is not point and shoot like the most of nowdayI'm confused about your reply. I simply stated my opinion that phone cameras are not very good and then I offered advice on two phones I think do a pretty good job
Did I miss something? I thought I did a pretty good job answering.
