There are two reasons to buy a phone as tall as the Sony Xperia 1. One – you want to watch super-modern 21:9 video in crisp 4K HDR … or Two – you need to film that same kind of video and you don’t want to buy a dedicated camera to do it. If you’re in either of those camps, and you were let down by last year’s RED Hydrogen One, the Sony Xperia 1 might be the phone for you. Speaking as a YouTuber who would shoot every video on a smartphone if he could get away with it … that means the Xperia 1 has my attention right out the gate. And it’s unquestionably the best Sony phone I’ve ever touched (which isn’t the backhanded compliment it might seem). The thing is, though: if you’re not a mobile videographer or a sucker for smartphones that stand out … you can get a phone that fits your needs for much less than the Xperia 1 costs.



MrMobile's Sony Xperia 1 Review was produced following two weeks using a Sony Xperia 1 review device on T-Mobile US. The device was a European J8110 model provided by Clove Technology. As this version of the Xperia 1 is not optimized for US networks, no tests on reception or throughput were performed. See Android Central’s review for additional information. In keeping with MrMobile’s review policy, no compensation was requested or accepted, and neither Sony nor Clove Technology were given editorial input or copy approval rights on this video.
