  • davidleizer69

    I'm a photographer and carry my equipment pretty much everywhere I go. That being said, some things are just better captured on a phone, the little fleeting moments: dinners with friends, messy nights out. I'd definitely buy a phone that can provide better quality for those random shots. Maybe not at this price point but overall I think most professionals would indeed buy it despite owning full on cameras

    I've given up on iPhone. Starting to lose hope on samsung. Starting to look at sony. The fact that this phone still has a sd card slot, and a great display is a win for me. I have the note 20 ultra. The last high end phone made by samsung with a micro sd slot. Thinking about getting this one.

    • Slayers TheName
      Slayers TheName

      The real reason that the charger bricks aren't included is to save them money. The sd card slot isn't included to have people by the cloud service, and other features like removable battery and aux ports aren't included to save them man power into making it. It's not about saving the planet or all that other malarkey that they can't. If it has been on older phone that cost less. They could easily included it in the "top of the line" phones.

      @AFTERSHOCK 7582 I'd pay over 2k instead of an iPhone. iPhone has to many restrictions, and only true compatible with other Apple productions. If you have other apple products, sure. Even then Sony has that, a headphone jack, a lanyard slot, and if you're talking about the 128gb iPhone. Yes, but the Sony comes with a 512gb. Comparing that to the 1.4k of the 512gd iPhone. It's only a 200 dollar difference for more features. You can't do as much as a samsung phone that has good lock. You can still use instructing launchers to make your phone more unique to you though. You're paying more for less with an iPhone, but paying extra with sony for things current smart phones lack. Plus you get the charger in the case already saving you 100+. Phones might be better on paper than what a personal preference for each person. I use ps5 and PC for a lot of things and having a phone that is compatible with both is always helpful. If I had apple products like iPad, and MacBook. Then yeah. I'd argue that it's better for those family of items. In my opinion apple feel off a long time ago. Adding features that has been on Android for years, and leading the way in features been taking away for profit while the consumer is left paying extra.

      @Alex sd card is much less expensive and with Google drive you have to download the files before you can use them, so if you need ready access to a bunch of them there is really no point.

    The best phone I had in the last decade was the XZ Premium. Had many of the features this one has incl the 4k screen (not oled though). Updates were timely, software was close to stock android, it was fast and great quality. Looked great too. I miss it very much.

    • Hollander113

      Agree, I'm still using it, though its starting to fall apart, can't get trough a full night charge anymore without it bricking, though thank god that even when its bricked the alarm will still buzz so it wakes me up. Feels like the last high end phone I'll be buy any time soon. 2100 is just a bit too ridiculous to spend on a phone. Looking for an alternative to de XZ Premium is a little heartbreaking though because for the first time since I bought a smartphone I will be downgrading not upgrading.

    I'm surprised you called changing the aperture a fringe scenario. Any long-distance scenery (like mountains or something) would massively benefit from a smaller aperture. That isn't 'fringe' at all. Almost all my pictures are far-off scenery, like skyscapes and nature. It'd be insulting to photographers if this feature wasn't available on the phone. Just because it can handle shallow DOF and mood lighting very well doesn't mean you should limit yourself to it. I would definitely not scoff at the feature though, that is a selling point IMO.

    I used sony since they came out with the xperia z. I sometime switched the brand, got badly disappointed by Samsung, found my love for huawei with their p30 pro, got an iPhone 11 pro max and I have to say that I miss something. The 11 pro max is a alpha phone of course but it's kinda stiff and serious like it's made for business people. I'm playing with the thought of buying either the pro I or the xperia 1 mark 3. The pro I is not made for normal people who wants to shoot quick shoots, it's made for people who know what their doing. U gotta know how to use that camera man. If u don't know how to use it, ull get pretty disappointed for that 1800 euros.

      @el patron I really hope you read this, since you just described my journey, switched from Xperia to Huawei the made a huge mistake of trying out Samsung! I phone won't work for me, my ADHD brain just can't seem to cope with lack of simplicity when it comes to most used features like texting. So, my question is, in 2022 do I go back to Sony, Huawei or jump on Google Pixel 6. For me simplicity and symmetry in design (hardware and software) is key, so no round egde no bubbly floating widgets, but with all basically the symmetry geometric designed from 10-15 years ago, but with all the other improvements. I'm also autistic so my needs are due to the way my brain processes and visualizes digital data. Hope you can help. I didn't even feel a difference between Xperia and Huawei, so I'd like to keep it at that, only with a newer model. I need those features to be on the phone as I'm not tech savvy enough to costumize it. Also my brain work well with familiarity, which is why Samsung has been hell the last two years.

If I had to switch, and Sony kept this momentum up, they would definitely be my choice. Good luck Sony team!

    Great reviews as always !!! I'm a photography enthusiast and I've had almost all the brands up to Leica (SL,Q,etc). Now I'm a little tired of taking devices with me. And I would like to find a phone that will allow me to be able to replace my devices I can't find one for the moment. I thought the perfect phone was coming with this Xperia 1 pro, well it looks like not yet...I have an iPhone 13 Pro at the moment, but hey... it lacks personality.

      @Arnox 😒😏😏😒😏😒😏😒😒

    • Arnox

      @sco77yg It's not just the jack though. The S21 Ultra doesn't have the camera of the Sony Xperia line or the expandable memory or the video editing tools or the professional camera software or the external monitor functionality or creative color mode or sound enhancement (both from the jack and external speakers) or the game recording and enhancements software or the 4k screen.

    • sco77yg

      @Arnox Including a headphone jack but charging £800 more than an S21 Ultra, that £800 gets you four pairs of very nice wireless headphones including Sony's own. That said, I agree with the courage comment, ridiculous these devices got rid of the jack, it clearly wasn't because "we can fit more battery in " etc as Apple etc claimed at the time, it was to try and drive sales of Airpods, Galaxy Buds etc

    Kudos for the review, the best deserved review for this Sony phone. You really did a good research and every point are spot on. Much of the other reviews I watch only talk about comparison which obviously is not the company's target. What I loved most is the way you explained the portrait mode. If anyone knows real photography they it really twitches to hear AI merged portraits are excellent(honestly AI generated portrait are just pleasing).

    Sony makes awesome phones. Had a Z1 Compact then a Z2.. that Z2 was the first phone I ever had that did 4K and it was like.. 2014 or 15 it was nuts. It was funny cause when you were in 4k there was permanent text in the viewfinder that said "Phone will shut camera down to reduce overheating if necessary" and it would after about 30 seconds but still.. also first phones I saw with AR modes.. could plot a room then have dinosaurs walk around and it worked surprisingly well for that era. I hope enough people buy these to make money cause I can't afford them but admire them from afar lol.

    3 separate apps for speed and ease of use. I think it would be easier/faster to simply click on the icon from the home screen rather than opening one icon, then fumbling around inside that app to find which setting you want to use. By that time, the shot you wanted may already be gone.

      @Mohamad Juhari That phone doesn't come with professional controls. Might sound a little mean, but it has only the noob controls. Still, the results are fine, but you can compare it to a car on autopilot. Yes, it's easier to use, you tell the destination, car drives you there, it also doesn't have a driving wheel then. The Sony is more of a phone that leaves all the work to you. Goal is the same, differently executed for different people.

      @Augusto Galindo And Sony are perfectly fine with that. People seem to think that their marketing division is so incompetent that they can't come up with simple conclusions that any random IRglo stan can. That's not the case. They understand very well that their devices don't appeal to the masses. And evidently their strat is finally starting to work. They have shown great improvement in sales numbers over the years. The fact of the matter is that, if Sony manages to fix a few of their sore issues with the 1 III namely, atrocious brightness, average battery life and low light imaging, they will quickly take up a large share of the market with what they already have. Right now, it's a phone that is full of compromises that the average person just doesn't want to make 😔

  • C R

    I think the reason Sony makes these kind of phones is to sell more of their mobile camera sensors/lenses to other manufacturers, without being directly in competition with its customers (e.g. Apple, Samsung etc) to show what is possible with their sensors - thus pushing the boundaries and pitting its customers to compete against each other.

      @Karthik exactly the same question i had in my head this whole time. Sony does have all the capabilities that is required to built the best and the most magnificent smartphone in the market....but they never did. . All the phones they made for last couple years seemed like half-baked idea, where they put a mindblowing feature in one place but lack of additional feature in order to get the mindblowing-feature to be actually mindblowing. . The biggest example is the camera. Since Xperia 1ii, they have put so many effort into the camera hardware in their smartphone that they had literally the best camera hardware compared to any brands by the time they released the phone, yet they never managed to build a proper software processing to finish the already god-tier camera hardware. . This gets me thinking that probably Sony actually just wants to show how powerful their hardware are without hurting any other brands that had already been their hardware customers.

    Best review of a phone I have ever seen. Almost makes me want to pay 1800 for a phone (I won't). I only have Sony Bravia TVs (three), Sony soundbars under two, Sony ZA receiver for theater sound and only sony Blu ray players; however, my cameras are Nikon 850s, and a Sony IMX209AQJ sensor is used on those cameras. However, for glass, it's Nikon. But as much as I like the looks of that Sony phone, I would have no use for it since my phone is a phone with a camera for quick shots of the dogs. This phone is a camera with a phone to occasionally use for calls. Still waiting for a DSLR (Sony or Nikon) to place a phone inside so I can talk into the camera and listen to the lens.

    Pre smartphone Sony seemed to dominate the market. With each new phone being a full experience. (i'm talking about 2003 which with in 2007 and 2008 Sony phones I still am nostalgic about.. they were beautiful and fuctional above anything else. And merged the then MP3-player concept into the phones. While the phones were even more compact as the MP3 players) Then HTC Hero lured me away. THe first "Android phone" and "full touch screen". The "tinker phone" - I was already using my Sony phone with an aux cable in the car but.. THIS HAD WifI AND BLUETOOTH! Sony phones made the best pictures, but there was something magical about HTC at that time. And being "able to program it yourself", compared to the mess that was Windows mobile, blackberry and java applets. HTC Hero, HTC Desire HD.. Iphone emerged. Sony seemed to have been dethroned and missed the boat, as Nokia at the time. (they brought out some awesome Windows phones, but the new windows eco-system was too late and never caught on enough) I got an LG after HTC went downhill. "the google Android phone", but the glass was so fragile, it would break by looking at it. Sony came back on the radar, when phones got every year larger with the Xperia Z3 compact (flagship phones in acompact form) - never any issue with the glass back panel. The same feeling of quality HTC once had. Glass back panel (that never broke!) The same image quality as from their compact cameras. I only replaced it after 4 years of use, because the battery became worn... But was deeply dissapointed with the XA2 I picked up for the "retro look". Then a period came where their phones seemed to suck. The competition boasted the "quad pixels" and other plastic looking imagery and gimmicks.. ultimately I came back for the XZ2 but after rooting it lost the camera and DRM, so picked up a XZ3 after trying a few Chinese brads with "quad plastic pixels" that ended up in the drawer very soon. It looks like the latest few phones of Sony are back to this Z3 era. While it's slightly expensive, i'll hold on a little longer until the price comes down or the 5 IV is released. But I'm excited again for smartphone! And not dragging my feet not really feeling that the choices ar really "an upgrade".

    I might not love it to bits but my 1k OnePlus 9 pro also shoots at 120 in 4k, has that 3rd mic by the cameras and sports a pretty big sensor, plus now, with the Android 12 update I feel like the software has been refining some rough edges it had up until now

    Its a great phone, If it came on a good enough UK contract deal i might grab it, as I dont like ios and cant find an android phone that really pulls me in.


    I've had Sony Xperia phones since they announced. There were a few that failed but Sony made up for it with the following. The last one I had was the Xperia 10 plus right before they announced this one and when they announced the Zeiss lens I absolutely lost my shit because the cameras On the previous ones were pretty good. My coworker used to try to compare Samsung and how they make washing machines and refrigerators and what does Sony make? My answer was cameras, sound systems, tvs, game consoles and oh yeah they have Sony pictures. Which made the last one I had pretty fun as at the time the first and only to record and display the 21:9 aspect ratio. There are a lot of mixed reviews but what I have to say is people like different phones for different reasons and seeing as I have worked with phone carriers over the course of 10 years, I discovered that pretty quickly. One of the downsides of this phone is that people like to point and shoot and be done with it but I enjoyed the manual camera layout since I do a lot of photography. It's unfortunate that their prices jumped up so much but if I was in a better position I would have absolutely bought this phone for the Carl Zeiss lens. It almost made it easier to not only have a good camera but also the editing software on the phone to snap and brush up or edit anywhere I was. But again, everyone has their own taste so I don't bash them for it, mine just happens to be Sony. 😁

    While many companies go straight up and prevent reviewers from reviewing their product even days before and sometimes even after launch, Sony's got the guts to let mrwhosetheboss review their product freely, that's not even fully completed. Hats off Sony.

      @Leon Francis maybe if they changed the name to something like the "Sony phone pro" akin to the Playstation naming scheme, lowered the price a little more, and gave it more spotlight it would sell much much better. But what do I know, I'm not apart of a marketing team...

    Throughout my life i only had xperia smartphones. I had a "Go" back in 2014, a Z3, and now my XZ2 is 3 years old. I always really liked them because they always felt unique to own but i always felt like i wanted them to do a little better compared to other phones, like "give me a little more" something like that. What i really liked is the good hardware with performance lasting for years and the nearly stock android, but i'm not sure if my next phone is still gonna be a sony. I feel like they still lack something that makes you go "yeah thats what i need from a phone" especially with the Xperia 1 series. Who knows? I'm sure the XZ2 can satisfy my phone needs for another 1-2 years (my dad is still rocking a Z1 wich he bought in 2014. The thing is falling apart but still makes phone calls and does gps i guess :D ) so maybe in the next 1 or 2 years sony will come up with something i will want. Or should i just get a galaxy? They seem to be nice too.

      @Gigi it's obviously great in comparison to the switch and Xbox one, because those are last gen consoles (plus the switch is literally 720p 30fps). In comparison to the Xbox series X/S, it's a bit closer. Still though, the Sony is probably better.

    The fact it has a Carl Zeiss stamp on it says alot. Sony 'is' the brand that pioneered alot of technologies that have well advanced since the days of Walkman, after all. Just wait until they master Xmore sensors on the scale of a 1" full frame. I worked for Sony. When we were putting up the 4K's when they launched, I was in awe. I turned to my manager and said "Just wait until we get 8K". He replied confidently "There will never be such thing as *8K*. lmao showed him. Believe me, Sony is the reason phones are as good as they are today. Not Samsung, not Apple. :)

    15:50 - I am a "camera enthusiast" and have high end gear dedicated to photography / video - and you're spot on - I purchased a Google 6 Pro becuase as a walk-around photographic solution it's good enough, if I want to shoot dedicated photos / video then the Sony is nowhere near good enough and the miniscule difference between the G6P and Sony does not justify the cost difference.

  • ExtremeLoader

    imo, having 3 camera apps is actually beneficial! it'll be easy to access whichever mode we want i.e videography and photography! or they wouldve made seperate ones because the settings are really complex and it would've been confusing if they're merged! Nice video, arun!

      @Angelo_Alex Paguntalan I never understand when people say other phones are for everyone else when they are missing important features like SD card, headphone, jack, gaming features, battery features that actually work. The only difference between this and pixel is the camera app, it has the same stock andry and can do everything it can do plus more. So basically this phone should be for more people unless they are obsessed with auto mode pictures. I don't care for a camera phone for any phone and I'll choose this phone over pixel and iphone...

      @Xeyvan Djokarto it clearly sits somewhere around the RX100 and the ZV1 camera as a modular camera/phone. Basically Sony is giving more flexibility and it doubles as a monitor for the alpha cameras. It all doubles down on what you intend on using this device for. 1800 is justified

  • Sanditra Muda
    Sanditra Muda

    I'd say the whole point of the phone is to show that Sony's Xperia line up didn't just lose the "Japanese" touch of overachieving something and putting in overly extra work. They should've made a 1080p screen version with a 6000 mAh battery and cheaper price and BOOM; your everyday iPhone and Galaxy killer.

      if only the Mi 11 Ultra did an under screen camera I would own one by now. With its little screen on the back for top quality selfies there is no need for perfect front camera shots as it will just be for those zoom meetings anyway.


    Sony has always promised so much but when you actually use it its always underwhelming

  • CubedGan

    When they mean one inch sensor, that means the diameter of it, so it is actually 0.63 inches. At the bottom of their website they tell you what 1 inch sensor means

    I dont know with yall but Sony is definitely missing something in the mobile phones department. It just doesnt give you the feel to cling unto it and be excited on the next.

      @Marco Esteban The "rattle" is the camera OIS, it's the same on my Xperia 5 ii, so nothing worrying. The symmetrical bezels look so much better than all the interrupted designs all other companies are using. Full respect for the content, nothing that can get in the way or interrupt the experience.👌 That's my take anyway. I genuinely do not notice the bezels on a daily basis.


    I really want to see SONY come with another camera application with an awesome AI for basic users to take pictures to destroy apple and samsung .

    I'm currently watching this on my oldie but goodie XZ Premium... what I really am desperate to know is how the PRO-I manages the heat throttle with the Snaodragon 888... it's has been known in a teardown that it does not have the vapor chamber cooling the first PRO had nor an ammount of thermal paste or pads over/near the chipset so... I'm not asking if it will melt or boil if I shoot 15 min. of RAW 4K video, .h265 @120fps, creator mode in the screen at 120hz... but how does it cope with heavy usage, web browsing, gaming, media playback, still photography? Would anyone be so kind to give us an insight into that matter please?

    Great phone with an insane price, in europe this thing costs as much as an iphone 13 pro max AND you have to pay additional 660€... thats like an additional s21.. there is absolutely no one who will ever buy it except a niche group of people. Sony really has a targetting problem, they can make great phones but they are absolutely oblivious about who it is for. Im sure if they would make this phone with hj,sd card slot,2k screen and newest snapdragon they would have a winner. Perhaps a pro/ultra/s model with the 4k screen. Done.

    i am gonna be honest here it is nice they made 3 different apps for photo's and videos cuz then more clear where everything is and for starters its easier to find out what everything is my own phone has multiple modes in 1 camera and in the beginning i got confused cuz my last camera didnt have much luxery

  • Nonth Suriyan

    The best camera is the one you have with you at the moment when you find the right shot. My 13 pro max for all it’s processing goodness already left me many times wanting to fetch my DSLR when it just could not generate the results I wanted.I suspect that with the 1” sensor on this beast it will be a different story. Which is why I slightly disagree with you on the point and potential audience for this phone.

    My HTC EVO 4G LTE had a camera button. I loved my Evos and HTC ones. They did a lot that other phones didn’t and did it first. I’m still bummed that they died out. I don’t know what happened to my first evo, but the 4g lte I had in my nightstand drawer for a while and was actually able to give it to my son for use when his phone broke, and it still worked as it was brand new. This was less than 2 years ago. He’s the little guy in my profile pic, who isn’t so little anymore. He’ll be a teen this yr.

      @Dzsombli Szorszita they were too dumb / lazy to adjust shot time and ISO. The Sony makes natural pictures and gives you every option to adjust to the direction you want. iPhone and Samsung produce nice, bright colors. I guess the Sony pictures were closer to reality.. There are reviews from actual photographers like Pierre L. and the results are insane. If this thing would have a nice zoom i could get rid of my big camera...

      Where is that superior quality? I wouldn't buy an iPhone, but every photo in the review has problems; they are dark, almost dull with missing details, the white balance is strange, questionable, and sometimes the Sony even seems to have a smaller dynamic range instead of outdoing all the phones with smaller sensors. Ok, it is not with the final firmware/software, and these problems can probably be corrected manually, but it is not proven yet.

      Not really? Linking all 3 to a single interface will use the same processing power which ever section you choose to use! But this wasn't smart consumer thinking, This is professional hardware for those that used to tinkering lol They had no incentive to make it any more simple.

      There are three demographics this accommodates. I personally will fill the Video Pro and Photography Pro but rarely touch the Cinema Pro . I'm happy not having useless UI in the way of what I need. Essentially when I'm using a function, I only want that function and no distractions. Having it all as one is bad. This phone is smart because it's designed with the philosophies of the professional camera industry i.e. purpose lead functions. In other words it's better to be a specialist in a few things than a generalist in everything. "Average consumers" (whatever that is) prefer generalists. Professionals prefer specialists.

    I am going to sell my S22 Ultra after awful experience with Samsung support (they literally lie to you, multiple times). I am thinking the Pro-I might be the replacement. Has anyone directly compared the cameras? Includng the selfie camera? I never really used the selfie camera but started to when holding my now 5 month old daughter. The front camera on the S22 Ultra produces better images than the rear, so interested in that in the Pro-I as well. Also interested in battery life as well.

    As a videographer, I find it fascinating. Realistically though, it's useless. When shooting with a phone, it has to be a point and click experience. Fiddling with controls requires actual physical buttons and dials. Cool gadget nevertheless.

    I'm no camera nerd but as someone in the market for a smartphone offering a solid media consumption experience that includes a 3.5mm jack as well as an overall snappy experience and a good photo kit, Sony is making me happy. I have no intention of buying the Pro version, but it did put the X1 II on my radar. I'm glad that some brands are trying something new rather than just implementing shiny gimmicks.
