Sony Xperia 1 initial review: Standing tall


Sony is looking to stand out from the crowd with its latest flagship - the Xperia 1. Here are our first impressions.

The Sony Xperia 1 is a little different and we love that about it. In a market where many flagship smartphones take on similar forms, it's good to see some variation. That 21:9 aspect ratio has some serious potential for those that love to watch films...

Xperia 1 review: Sony comes back to lead the pack | AndroidPIT


With a new name, 21:9 format and a hint of Hollywood, Sony's Xperia 1 wants to convince the ambitious smartphone user. Will be it a star?

The Sony Xperia 1 is a great and exceptional smartphone. This is not only due to the elongated format, which is not everyone's cup of tea, but offers some practical advantages. It's also not due to the strong performance, the tidy software, the 4K...

Sony Xperia 1 First Look: Widescreen Experience in a 6.5-Inch Phone


Sony's 2019 flagship is beautiful with a 4K HDR OLED screen boasting a 21:9 aspect ratio. But in a way, the new smartphone already feels old-fashioned.
