    My next phone will be a Sony. My next OLED will be a Sony. My travel camera will be a Sony. I stick to JBL for speakers... Sony is damn good.

    Sony phones are expensive because Sony pioneers R&D which many phone companies copy from and pay lawsuit later. Understand? Sony is bigger than most phone companies lol.

    Marques Can't accept the fact that Sony Xperia 1 iii is far better than their Samsumg, with ugly notch, no headphone jack, no charger, no memory card slot, 60Hz display smartphones. Easy to see untrusted review.

    The comments on this video CLEARLY shows that Apple (and Samsung but mostly Apple) is ALWAYS in peoples minds RENT FREE. This video is about Sony, this had absolutely nothing to do with other companies. But when you criticize Samsung and Apple, you’re seen as objective. The tech community is full of hypocrites.

    Marques brownie is delusional to think this is ‘enthusiast’ or focusing on the wrong features instead of calling out other companies for their delusional abandonment of 3.5mm jacks and lowering the amount of ports on them

    I might buy this phone in 2023 when its not 13k

    This phone needs a minimum of a 5000 battery. 4500 on a always on 4k is unacceptable. C'mon man

    I'm quite sure the phone is not 4K all the time but instead runs at 1096 x 2560 pixels except for select use cases (netflix, youtube, gallery) when switches to 4K (i say this while being the proud owner of the 1II)

    Look back some model of Sony like Sony Experia showing they just ahead of time. Good productbt but bad marketing

  • andersnus

    Thank god he didn't talk about ethics!!! How dare Sony strive to NOT partner with anyone using child labor for 3 years after finding out about it, or suppliers with suicide nets around the building for horribly treated and grossly underpaid employees... Damn them and their ethics awards and trying to do the right thing.

    • Joe

      All of those was alleged conspiracies against companies’ supply chain. The internet will believe in hoaxes and every headline from “journalists”.

    If a DSLR was a phone, this would be it. So, the photo will only be as good as the photographer. If you're pictures look dull it's because you've not taken the time to get the correct lighting or angle. This phone is NOT going to over process your photos like an iPhone and every other smartphone does. It's not going to bring detail out of the shadows using computational photography. If you're lazy and want that, get an S21 or iPhone. THIS phone is for the team Pro photographer who knows what they are doing. Hence the price.

    I think it's great how MKHD is talking about Sony phones but it's sad how he undersells or omits features only to criticize them when he's just using it wrong. If some of these features were on an iPhone or Samsung he would probably hype it up and actually delve deeper into it.

    Heeeey look, a phone that has a touch screen, camera and lock button. We haven't seen that before. And you can download apps? Mind blown.

  • Habibabdul

    I've been following this phone for months once I saw a specific mind blowing feature (to me anyway) that I am sure will be copied by all major phone manufacturers. This phone rocks and has crazy features. I'm not really into that narrow design but oh well.

    • Pixels

      No doubt about it. Sony's innovations are always copied by other brands. What's worse is that they take all the fame because of marketing. Remember the 3 layer stacked cmos sensor (960 fps)? 3D creator? Bravia Engine/X-Reality engine?

    I'll Never Buy Another Sony Xperia Phone until they become like almost every other manufacturer and make it possible to change the sides of the Back and recent buttons at bottom of the screen. Sony. You are Isolating yourselves because of this crazy action. Change, or you are Finished.

      @Pixels Really. Where? I've looked everywhere and asked lots of people in phone stores. No one else can help me. Can you?

      @Miscellaneous Prime sorry but not this one. Dont get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of Sony manly industry design. This one is different, in a bad way. Look at the edge... They're clearly struggling between their good old style and their effort to do s.t different
