Long-term Sony fans may be surprised at first, as the manufacturer in its new flagship does not continue to use the long-familiar XZ series, but chooses a completely new name: Xperia 1. A fresh start with a lot of innovations.

Sony Xperia 1 test: a new level?

Most obviously, while the Xperia XZ3 was created in 18:9 aspect ratio, this year Sony decided to go with 21:9 cinema format. A competitor represented by LG already made a similar attempt with the BL40 ten years ago — without success.

Xperia 1 with its 6.5-inch diagonal is quite narrow (72 mm), but also quite long. In height, it has already 167 mm. Compared to the Xperia XZ3, the screen area has become approximately 30 percent larger. For movies and games, this format is optimal, and for the first time, Sony is embedding a 4K HDR-OLED panel here. 4K is displayed here in 16:9 format with 3840×2160 pixels. By the way, this does not prevent Sony from calling 4K and a resolution of 3840×1644 in X1. Content looks very sharp, color space coverage is huge (about 150 percent Standard-RGB), and with a checkerboard contrast ratio of 203:1, the Xperia 1 manages to set a record in our corresponding ranking. In HDR movies from Netflix or Youtube, you can enjoy full dynamic range because the relevant DCI P3 color space is 100 percent covered by the Xperia 1 panel. Only the maximum brightness, reaching a level of about 412 cd / m2, gives rise to criticism. Indoors, although this will be enough, the Xperia 1 does not get brighter under sunlight, which makes the content hard to read.

Since the display is very long, you can double-click the Home button to switch to one-handed operation. Side Sense allows you to quickly launch applications such as Camera with one hand. In addition, there is a split screen mode, in which you will have space on the display to display two applications at the same time. The fingerprint scanner is located on the side, but it is not built into the power button, but is placed a little lower. He is very accessible and responds very quickly.

It is also worth emphasizing that the Xperia 1 is available in a glass body (Gorilla Glass 6) with a choice of colors from black, white, gray and purple. The smartphone gives the impression of quality, but slips in the hand and magically attracts fingerprints. After IP68 certification, it is officially protected from water and dust.

Sony Xperia 1 with three cameras: bad photos at dusk

On the back of the Xperia 1 is a triple camera setup with wide-angle, ultra-wide-angle and zoom lenses, each capable of shooting at 12-megapixel resolution. Only an ultra-wide-angle lens has to do without an optical image stabilizer. New here is autofocus, which specifically recognizes the eyes. The zoom lens enables 2x optical zoom, while the wide-angle camera can shoot super slow motion video at up to 960fps in Full-HD resolution. The videos will be approximately three seconds long. Slow-Mo recording can last up to five seconds at up to 120 fps. Normal video can be shot in 4K resolution, but at a speed of «only» 30 frames per second, although the processor could handle 60 fps.

The quality of the photos is decent, although sometimes there are noisy areas in the pictures. And there are more of them, the worse the lighting conditions. Details and fine structures are lost. In general, pictures taken in poor light can be considered noticeably blurry. Even selfies from the 8-megapixel front camera, which, by the way, is not located in Notch, are also somewhat noisy. Portrait mode also needs improvement. But there is one cool feature: when shooting with an ultra-wide-angle camera, you can set the settings so that distortion is corrected automatically. The difference, as you can see in the photos below, is very big. In our dedicated photo gallery you can see various photos we took with the Xperia 1 in Venice.

Some regret camera causes the fact that both photos and videos can only be taken in 16:9- (or 4:1- and 1:1-), and not in 21:9-format. Especially given the fact that the smaller Xperia 10 and 10 Plus models can. However, this applies to the standard Camera application. The Xperia 1 also comes with the Cinema Pro app, which is based on Sony film camera technology. It allows you to record HDR video in 4K resolution and 21:9 aspect ratio, as well as individually change settings such as color depth, aperture, manual focus and various filters. It’s a pleasure, but we miss being able to view our own photos in full size on the Xperia 1.

Latest Snapdragon 855 but modest battery

Under the hood, the Xperia 1 is powered by Qualcomm’s latest and most powerful processor to date, the Snapdragon 855, clocked at up to 2.8GHz. Helping him 6 GB of RAM. Thanks to all this, performance is at the highest level, so even demanding applications such as 4K video recording and video editing, as well as multitasking or complex games, are not a problem. Our Xperia 1 mobile phone rating loaded via WLAN in 4.8 seconds — very fast. The operating system is Android 9 (Pie). The patch of security systems at the time of testing in early June was the most relevant.

The battery has a capacity of 3330 mAh. With the size of the OLED display, in our opinion, it should have been somewhat larger. For comparison, the new 6.4-inch Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus has a 4,000 mAh battery that can last approximately 10 hours on a single charge. Xperia 1 under continuous load and screen brightness at 200 cd / m2 can last 7 hours and 50 minutes. The smartphone is charged via USB Type-C and takes 126 minutes with the included 18W power supply. Wireless charging is unfortunately not possible.

Good equipment with a couple of flaws

In terms of equipment, the Xperia 1 has almost everything you need, with the exception of the missing Qi-compatibility. For about 800$, buyers get a model with 128 GB of memory, of which approximately 118 GB are available for use. If that’s not enough, the storage can be expanded with Micro-SD memory cards up to 512 GB. Alternatively, a second SIM card can be inserted into this slot.

For true cinematic enjoyment, there’s Dolby Atmos sound here. If you’re not wearing headphones, the stereo speaker will give you symmetrical, spacious sound. Unfortunately, the classic 3.5 mm audio jack will have to be abandoned, but there is a corresponding adapter in the package. Bluetooth works according to the modern 5.0 standard, WLAN-ac and NFC modules are also on board. Xperia 1 supports LTE Cat.19 with download speeds up to 150Mbps.

No problem, the Xperia 1 offers a great display and great performance. But at this high cost, we expected a little more from the camera and battery. It may be worth waiting a few more months with the purchase. Then the price will most likely come down.

Product Conclusion

Sony is starting from one again and with the new Xperia 1, it is bringing to market a high-performance 21:9 cinema smartphone. It scores well in our benchmark tests in categories like Display and Performance, but for the photos taken with the triple camera, we can criticize it a bit. The same goes for battery life — it turns out to be below average, which cannot be said about the price, which is as much as 800$.

Advantages

great 6.5″ cinema-style OLED display
cool performance
triple camera with wide-angle and zoom lenses.

Flaws

no wireless charging
Battery life is below average
it is not possible to take pictures in 21:9 aspect ratio.

Alternative:

Sony Xperia 1 smartphone test: a huge 4K cinema-style display and a new name Samsung Galaxy S10 128GB

For around Rs 45,000, you can get Samsung’s current S-series flagship, the Galaxy S10.

It has a smaller display, but during the test it made a positive impression on us in all respects.

The performance and pictures from the triple camera are excellent. In terms of equipment, it also offers more than the Sony Xperia 1.
