      short of promise, major flaws on signal strength
    • Such anticipation that I waited arrival of Xperia 1, yet so disappointing to write this review. I've been a long time Sony user, coming from the XZ2 Premium, XZ Premium, the XZ, Z5 Premium, Z Ultra, you get the picture. So let's jump to the deal breakers: 1. the form factor is just not working for me, and I haven't had this problem with any other Sony flagship. phone too narrow/long, difficult to activate side "sense". When rotated over, typing is impossible because the keyboard takes up virtually the entire screen. 2. the real deal breaker is the signal strength on cell reception, wifi,GPS. Since XZ2 Premium design change, antenna embedded into side body, like early iphones, all suffering same problem. I won't be buying any more Sony phones til Sony solves this problem

      The overall use is not bad, but fingerprint recognition seriously affects the experience.
    • The overall use feels good, the operation is also easy, but the fingerprint recognition only works just two days before the phone is taken, and then the recognition success rate becomes severely reduced. Even if the same finger set five sets of fingerprints, there are often unrecognizable situations. Only 30-40% success rate This situation seriously affects the experience, especially if you use a bank or pay for an app, it will often be locked because it is unrecognizable several times in a row. Currently, it is planned to send repairs. If the situation has not been improved or repaired, then changing the phone may not consider the same product line or brand.

      Glitches constantly
    • This phone was good for about three months. My wife's phone shortly after will go into glitches where it would click on apps, scroll through screens, dial number and all sorts of other glitches like the screen was wet if that makes sense. I have to restart my phone every 5 to 10min in oder for it to work properly. We spent 450$on each phone that hasn't even lasted a year. Not happy with this product at all and was a complete waste of money. Highly doubt Sony will do much to fix this problem so I'll make an attempt to call but I don't have high hopes.

      For six months, the speaker and headphone output are not working
    • May 2019 bought xperia 10. Initially, the headphone output did not work after the purchase, then the speaker stopped working and you hear a conversation ... after that it turned out that there is no guarantee as there are scratches on the case ... after alleged diagnostics, warranty repair was refused .. asked what method the diagnosis was carried out, they said it was a secret ... sent an examination sonny does not do an examination ... with an independent examination, if the phone is opened by third parties, the phone automatically loses its warranty for six months WHAT NEXT

      Not waterproof at all
    • Had this phone for 4 months. Great phone because it's basically stock android and beautiful design. Unfortunately does not live up tot he IP rating at all. Took it to a beach to shoot some pictures underwater. Didn't hold up after less than 3 minutes in the water and had to switch to my samsung s10+. The samsung s10+ I had stayed in the water for 10 minutes recording videos and didn't have the same issue. I sent the phone to sony repair and they don't fix water contamination even thought he phone is supposed to be dustproof and waterproof for constant immersion up to a specified amount hence you get the IP68 rating. Should have been rated IP60 as it didn't handle the water well at all. I own many Sony products and out of the 3 phones from sony the Xperia 1 and Xperia Z5 are the 2 fails.

      This is a real failure!
    • All the pros will tell you in advertising. I will write about the cons: I bought it on pre-order. First, one hundred you should pay attention to - this is a fingerprint scanner. It works JUST DISAPPOINTING! Actuation REALLY 50/50. Each time you want to enter the phone, your brain will strain: the scanner will work now, or you need to enter the PIN. You have no idea how annoying this will be after a couple of months of use. Separating the scanner and turning it on is the stupidest thing you could think of. This kapets is so uncomfortable! The phone constantly freezes. With an incoming call, the phone is buggy and the call can neither be picked up nor dropped. Wait for the end and call back. The network is lost 10 times a day. Just HOP and it does not work. But on the screen it shows everything is OK, but in fact no one gets through.

      Do Not Buy This Phone
    • Do not buy this phone... I have had mine 6 weeks now and it is full of problems. 4G drops in and out, the phone over heats and drops calls, weak signal, jumps into aeroplane mode, fingerprint recognition is nowhere near as good as the iPhone and hard to use and Sony support is rubbish. On paper this phone should be amazing but reality once again Sony haven't got this one sorted and it still needs a lot of work and better customer service.

      Xperia, low low low and limitations
    • Low battery, low sound, poorly performance, fingerprints work poor, without android 10. Totally s*it xperia launcher, uncontrolled operation for such a display, just a backlog, ambient display can't be customized according to needs, missing themes, missing xperia actions, little updated applications and system, removal of necessary functions, security patches from October 2019 - shame, slow system updates, sony has nothing to offer, applications that recently belonged to the best are cropped without function and added value, the system is already crayfish, it is boring and no longer go fast updates,camera is poor, photos are blurry, videos are shaking, 4k missing stabilization, widescreen lens is bad joke, photos are worse than lowend samsung, shame...

      Really want it, but just cant..
    • The features for remoting my A7iii have become somewhat restricted on my mac and iPhone. Now I get why... Come on, Sony; don’t be so Apple’ish. Okay, like I’m going for Apple, cause they work so nice, I could go for a Sony phone. But I would never buy a product with google-software. Sorry guys.

      Xperia 1
    • A GREAT DISCOVERY. I HAVE TO BUY THIS PHONE, AND IT WAS GOOD THAT I DIDN'T DO IT. The phone is not worth the price. Sony writes that the phone has a more powerful battery, but taking into account the size of the display - the battery discharges very quickly. You need to charge on average 2 x daily. The function to unlock the display so-called double click works as it wants. The sound of Dolby atmos is only in the description, very weak. Old phones play better. This phone has nothing that would interest me.

      Nice, fast mobile phone, bad reception
    • Beautiful design, good usability, good battery life, as I have been used to since the Z3 Compact. Now with my first investment in a flagship, the big disappointment came. The reception in the telephone network and Wi-Fi is shockingly bad. Especially in my apartment where I had no problems with my XZ1 Compact phone calls and in the whole apartment Wi-Fi was nothing more. To be able to telephone without interruption, I have to go outside the door. This is an absolute no-go for a 1000 € mobile. I can not recommend this phone for regions with mediocre reception.
