Sony Xperia 1 III Review | Trusted Reviews


Sony delivers one of its best smartphones yet with features you won't find on other modern Android flagships.

No notch and cutout leaves screen uninterrupted ; Narrow body is great most of the time ; Features ditched elsewhere like SD card, headphone jack included

Screen doesn’t get bright enough outdoors ; Tall display can make certain things feel cramped ; Low-light and zoom photography isn’t that great for something that costs this much

Sony Xperia 1 III review


The Sony Xperia 1 III is an expensive smartphone, but it's the company's best of the last few years.

Great battery life Incredible display 3.5mm headphone jack

Tricky to handle, for some No in-screen fingerprint sensor Expensive

The Sony Xperia 1 III isn’t for everyone, but for those who enjoy Sony’s Android phones, or who want a top-tier smartphone with a versatile camera, a beautiful screen and strong battery life, this is a great choice. It’s expensive, and its design means...

Sony Xperia 1 III review: In a world of its own


Sony's 2021 iteration of the Xperia 1 has a lot to offer - but carries with it some surprising weaknesses.

Great design ; Good display ; 3.5mm headphone socket and microSD card slot ; Plenty of power ; Good battery life

Camera substitutes complexity for performance ; Fingerprint scanner prone to accidental detections ; Display brightness could be better ; High price

This could be all the phone that many will need, with a great display, plenty of power and useful features like the headphone socket and expandable storage. But the camera is complicated by Sony's attempt to make it more 'pro', missing the mark hit by...

Sony Xperia 10 III review: Muddling through the mid-range


Compact and offering 5G connectivity - but can it truly compete?

Great build quality ; Waterproofing ; Good display ; MicroSD card slot ; 3.5mm headphone socket

Mono speaker ; Display brightness ; Weak front camera ; Camera low-light performance ; Price

This mid-ranger offers good build quality and waterproofing - which is a rarity at this level. But while it offers three proper cameras on the back, the overall camera performance isn't great. There's plenty of power for a mid-range device, but it's...

Sony Xperia 1 III Review


Sony's flagship stands out from the crowd thanks to its unusual aspect ratio and practical design, but are its key features good enough for a place at the top table?

– Nice notchless screen and handy physical features

– The screen lacks brightness and photography problems persist

The Sony Xperia 1 III is without a doubt the brand’s best smartphone yet, being truly feature-packed. Everything you could want is here according to the specs sheet, but there remains a couple of issues when using this phone day-to-day, including an...

Sony Xperia 1 III review: Nearly brilliant


Mightily impressive in many ways but expensive and flawed in others, the Sony Xperia 1 III is so close to brilliance

Astonishing camera offering ; Colour-accurate 4K display ; 21:9 aspect ratio is a delight

Very, very expensive ; 120Hz only available at FHD resolution ; Poor battery life

The Sony Xperia 1 III’s poor stamina is hugely disappointing because it’s otherwise a truly exceptional handset. Mostly unblemished in every other area, and truly exceptional in others, the Xperia 1 III is a solid indication that Sony absolutely knows...

Sony Xperia 1 III review


Can Sony's dream team do the double?

Astonishing display ; Ultra-speedy camera ; No-compromise feature list

Pro camera modes may be lost on novice snappers ; Seriously premium price

More multi-division Sony greatness, with a seriously impressive screen and pro-level camera abilities. Photo novices might find it difficult to master, but no rival has such comprehensive out-of-the-box ability

Expert review by : Allison Johnson (

Sony’s Xperia 1 III is pricey, performant, and perplexing


Great photography features but the price is too high.

Good, high-res OLED 120Hz panel ; Lots of manual photo and video controls ; Sophisticated, minimalist design

Short time frame for security update support ; Expensive ; Seriously, it’s $1,300

The Sony Xperia 1 III offers a good 6.5-inch OLED with a smooth 120Hz refresh rate, a Snapdragon 888 processor, and three rear cameras including a zoom lens with two focal lengths. It’s a very good high-end device, but it’s too costly to recommend.

Sony Xperia 1 III review: For the creators


The Sony Xperia 1 III is a marvelous Android smartphone for photographers and content creators — so long as they have deep pockets.

Beautiful 21:9 120Hz OLED display ; Excellent cameras ; Hi-Res audio with 3.5mm jack ; Camera shutter button

Premium price ; 4K isn’t noticeable ; Long footprint is not for everyone
