Sony Xperia Pro-I review


A powerful, niche phone for photographers

Great photo and video capture ; Class-leading manual camera modes ; Premium design and features ; Powerful internals ; All-day battery life

No wireless charging ; Traditional photo processing has limited appeal ; No periscope zoom camera ; Secondary cameras fail to shine ; Incredibly expensive

Sony Xperia Pro-I review: King of the phone cameras?


Sony's niche phone is pricey, but do the manual controls and results from the top-tier camera make it worthwhile?

Attractive and practical design ; Physical headphone port is a plus ; Great results from primary camera ; Speedy and smooth performance

Manual controls won't be for everyone ; Prohibitively expensive ; Accidental presses on buttons are frequent ; Battery life isn't great

Sony isn't hiding the fact it's going niche with the Xperia Pro-I. If you want a phone with professional-grade tools for videography and photography then it's certainly worth considering. It's one of the nicest looking and best-equipped phones on the...

Sony Xperia Pro-I review: Photographic flexibility at all costs


Sony's Xperia Pro-I is an even more confoundingly niche product than the Xperia 1 III

More camera control than any other smartphone ; 4K 21:9 display ideal for video content ; Uniquely grippy design

Still very expensive ; Disappointing battery life ; No wireless charging

Sony Xperia Pro-I review: top main camera, high-price


Pro by name, pro by nature

Great design and screen ; Tons of storage space ; Impressive primary camera

Weak secondary cameras ; No wireless charging ; Very expensive

A great camera phone that’s made niche by its high price

Sony Xperia Pro-I review


What if the Sony Xperia 1 III went to school and got a degree in filmmaking? No need to wonder - it would become an imaging professional. It would become...

No-nonsense design, high-end build, IP65/IP68 rating.

We can't approve of the '1.0-inch type sensor' marketing, when the phone clearly only uses a portion of it.

Still, we consider the Xperia Pro-I to be more of a proof-of-concept device than a product that actually makes sense from a market standpoint. It undoubtedly has its merits, and one could rationalize why it would be superior to this or that...

Sony Xperia Pro-I as a video camera


Sony made quite the stir a couple of days ago by announcing the 'first smartphone with a 1"-type camera sensor and phase-detect autofocus' - the Xperia...

Sony Xperia Pro-I review: Seamlessly professional


The Sony Xperia Pro-I is a brilliant camera alternative for professionals

Beautiful 21:9 120Hz OLED display ; First-in-class cameras ; Camera shutter button ; Stunning audio ; Good battery life…

…unless using heavy-duty apps ; Premium price ; No wireless charging ; 4K isn’t noticeable ; Long footprint is not for everyone

The Sony Xperia Pro-I is aptly made for photography and cinematography professionals, adding a killer camera to a powerful Android smartphone. But it’s more of a camera alternative than the camera-smartphone hybrid it sets out to be.

Sony Xperia PRO-I review: The Camera phone


The Sony Xperia PRO-I is the new ultra-premium phone from Sony. Thin, powerful, and focused entirely on camera features with a huge 1-inch sensor!

Sharp and accurate 4K 120Hz OLED display ; Distinctive industrial design ; Remarkable camera versatility ; Superb video-recording capabilities ; Natural, not overly processed photos and videos ; Loud and clear stereo speakers ; Plenty of storage plus...

High price ; Shutter button is too sensitive ; Only 30W fast charging ; Mushy haptic feedback ; No biometric alternative to the fingerprint scanner ; White balance discrepancies between the different cameras ; Camera interface doesn't rotate

Sony Xperia Pro-I review: A powerful smartphone for professional photographers | ZDNet


After a few weeks with the Sony Xperia Pro-I, it's clear this phone is built for photographers who shoot with specific manual settings. It's extremely capable but also too advanced for typical smartphone users.

Advanced, expert-level camera apps ; Powerful camera hardware ; Solid battery life ; Excellent build quality ; Lovely high-resolution display

Very expensive ; Limited zoom capability ; Sensitive shutter button
