    So far with this phone I have found it very comfortable to use even with its 21×9 aspect ratio. The interface only has a few of sony’s own apps which means you nearly get a clean android experience. After trying the camera for the first time I was well reasonably impressed with the quality of the image. Would love to see the new pro photo app from Sony to come to this phone as the stock app isn’t great. While watching a movie on the go I found the the screen was superb the colours were crisp and bright. My biggest problems I found was I miss the headphone jack and the speakers on this seem to be very unbalanced. Overall a very good phone but a little over priced.

    This Android phone, at the time of writing, is a delight to use. Not only does it feature am array of excellent cameras, it is a very attractive device, with a pin sharp 4K screen which really does bring out the best from video content and games. The Cinema Pro App allows the user to tweak the cameras to get some high quality footage and it is a lot of fun to use. The super slow motion filming only allows you to shoot about a second worth of footage but it slows right down, and in food light you can get some really cool footage, as long as you time things well.
    They actuay took out the super slow motion mode from the Xperia 1 ii and that is a real shame because I loved that feature.
    The phone can run current apps and will probably be good for another few years. The music sound good though mobile phone speakers aren’t really that great on any phone and it is always better to plug in better speakers. There is no headphone jack so you have to use USB headphones or a convertor to plug in…

    Xperia 1 bought from Amazon on behalf of connected 247 excellent price and quick delivery would recommend this seller. The phone itself looks good and the transfer of virtually everything from my old xperia, all I had to do was redownload 2 apps and then create my folders with the apps. I cannot see me using the split screen and the camera pictures are not as clear and vivid as the one front and one rear on the XZ3 perhaps because there are less pixels on the new one. Video playback is about the same so nothing worse so far. The big disappointment is the battery life ,a full charge lasts well under 24 hours even using the Stamina mode. Update 16/09/2020 As an attempt to extend battery life decided to use the supplied plug and cable instead of my usual C set up and battery charges fully in under an hour and now lasts approx 48 hours, so good now.

    Edit – 07/2021 – Decreasing my rating to 1 because this phone has known hardware issue with fingerprint reader and seller is not going to replace the device for you and you’ll end up going in circles between seller, Amazon and Sony.

    Before I start the review I’d like to say that it is my 6th Sony Phone, one can say I’m a Sony fanboy but to be honest Sony phones have never disappointed me so I don’t see a point in changing.
    I bought this phone for £515 which is a very amazing deal to buy a year old flagship phone from Sony, specially if you consider built quality of this phone. Its weight is perfectly balanced and it’s easy to hold in hand.

    We can quickly talk about cons of this phone and I can only think of 1, i.e. no wireless charging, to be honest the more I think of it, I don’t really feel the need of it as the battery lasts me long enough to put it on wall charge when I go to sleep. Can also last multiple days if I don’t use it heavily.

    Now talking of pros, it feels very…

    Best phone I’ve had to date and I have had a LOT of phones. Personally I think this is better than the Xperia 1 ii as I feel like they went a bit backwards with the new model. This phone is everything a flagship should strive to be and the bonus is that it comes in the best unique colour, purple!

    Bought the Xperia 1 as needed a New Phone but didn’t want to have a 2 year contract or a £1000 layout.
    The model is 18 mths old but it’s solid, reliable and everything I actually need. Great price on Amazon and with the usual solid and fast service 👍
