Sony Xperia 1 review: Breaking new ground?

 

Sony is looking to stand out from the crowd with its latest flagship - the Xperia 1 - by offering a 21:9 aspect ratio screen with 4K resolution.

Great display for watching movies ; Interesting design ; Good quality of build

Camera app isn't great and performance could be better ; Battery life is a little short

An interesting phone with a 21:9 aspect ratio 4K display that lends itself watching movies, which is where this Xperia sets itself apart from the masses. There's plenty of power and enough elsewhere to keep this phone competitive, but the camera app is...

Sony Xperia 1 hands-on review

 

A 4K OLED HDR display in a flagship phone for the first time

Hands on: Hands on: Sony Xperia 1 review

 

A phone made for film-makers

Premium design ; Top-end internals ; Focus on video recording

Uncertain on 21:9 ; Relatively small battery ; Low max screen brightness

The Sony Xperia 1 features a uniquely impressive display on paper, but it means the phone is longer than some will expect or like. Everything else on the Xperia 1 looks to make a solid smartphone, but a few areas like a small battery may limit its run...

Sony Xperia 1 review: Sony’s best smartphone is also its most expensive

 

Sony's Xperia 1 is the first flagship smartphone with a 21:9 screen, but you'll find a handful of interesting features if you dig deeper

Superb triple camera ; 4K 21:9 screen looks lovely ; Performance is rock solid

Disappointing battery life ; Issues with video stabilisation

In the end, the Xperia 1 is a high-end smartphone that’s filled to the brim with positives. The 21:9 OLED screen is simply a joy to stare at, the camera outperforms the competition in most scenarios, and performance is right up there with the very best...

Sony Xperia 1

 

Sony has decided that if it isn't going to sell many phones, it might as well sell a niche phone to a specific audience. On these terms, the Xperia 1 is a success

Sony Xperia 1 Review

 

The Xperia 1 is more than just Sony's latest flagship phone. It is the catalyst in the company's transformative turn in a new direction – one that would hopefully bring the Xperia brand back on the radar. It is the first Sony phone with a triple camera...

Beautiful display; Versatile triple camera setup; Fast, clean software; Solid, classic design; Stereo speakers sound very clear (but lack bass)

Camera software feels unfinished; Unreliable fingerprint scanner; No wireless charging

Xperia 1 review: Sony comes back to lead the pack | AndroidPIT

 

With a new name, 21:9 format and a hint of Hollywood, Sony's Xperia 1 wants to convince the ambitious smartphone user. Will be it a star?

The Sony Xperia 1 is a great and exceptional smartphone. This is not only due to the elongated format, which is not everyone's cup of tea, but offers some practical advantages. It's also not due to the strong performance, the tidy software, the 4K...

Sony Xperia 1 First Look: Widescreen Experience in a 6.5-Inch Phone

 

Sony's 2019 flagship is beautiful with a 4K HDR OLED screen boasting a 21:9 aspect ratio. But in a way, the new smartphone already feels old-fashioned.

Amazing Phone

 

Had bad experiences with Sony phones in the past but this phone is amazing. Moved from Samsung to Sony. No regrets so far, if you like a big phone, this is the phone to get plus is much thinner so easier to use

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

An excellent mobile phone!

 

I haven't had the phone long enough to go into any detail, but I'm enjoying trying to find out how to get the best out of it, hence the "ease of use rating", but I would definitely say that the Xperia 1 is a quality mobile phone.
